WATCH: LEGO Creator Expert Police Station (10278) Designer Video

After making its official debut a couple of weeks ago, LEGO has now released an accompanying designer video for its next modular set, the LEGO Creator Expert Police Station (10278). LEGO Designer Chris McVeigh gives us an inside tour of the Police Station (10278), and its neat little secrets waiting to be revealed. Watch this.

The LEGO Creator Expert Police Station is the 16th modular set under the subtheme. It’s a long time coming actually, and a perfect addition to the ever-growing collection of modular sets that deserves a premium spot in your LEGO room or shelf.

Like those before it, the Police Station is more than just a modular set. In typical LEGO fashion, it tells a story amongst its minifigure characters, particularly with the mysterious Donut Thief. It boasts several play features including a winding staircase that passes through all its floors.  Aside from the Police Station itself, the set also has an adjacent Donut Shop, an apartment, annex, and a newsstand.

LEGO fans will notice that this set also offers several new recolored LEGO pieces, including some new decorated elements. As mentioned by LEGO Graphic Designer Ashwin Visser, these include a prominently displayed 1×4 plate with a printed police sign, two printed round tiles for the Donut Shop, and a new 2×2 square tile newspaper among others. What is also interesting is the use of several LEGO Minecraft wolf headpieces for the building’s cornice and the 1×3 inverted bow in new colors. The set also boasts five new minifigures, including ’40s-era Police Officers.

The LEGO Creative Expert Police Station (10278) is slated to arrive exclusively via LEGO Shop@Home and at LEGO brand stores starting January 1, 2021. It clocks in at 2,923 pieces and will retail for $199.99 USD.

Be Sure To Catch These LEGO Promotional Items This December

The holiday season is now in full swing and while perhaps most of us are waiting for the arrival of some of 2021’s most anticipated sets like the upcoming LEGO Creator Expert Police Station modular set, you might want to draft your end-of-the-year LEGO shopping list and bag these neat LEGO promotional items this December.

LEGO Shop@Home in the US has just updated its offers and promotions page to now include not one, but three LEGO promotional items that will be added to your cart for free with LEGO qualifying purchases that you’ll make this month.

LEGO Seasonal Ice Skating Rink (40416)

304 pieces | Available from December 1 to 12, 2020 or while supplies last

LEGO Promotional Items LEGO Promotional Items LEGO Promotional Items

This year’s holiday seasonal freebie now comes in the form of a playable skating rink. As a fan of minifig vignettes, I love the way how designers cleverly used the splat-gear pieces to make the minifigure skaters circle the ice skating rink. The choice of color is also perfect in my opinion as it captures the holiday fun of playing outdoors. Coming in at 304 pieces, this freebie also comes with 2 minifigures, some pine trees, a small stall, and a mini fountain of sorts at the center of the build. This promotional item will be added to your cart for a single-receipt purchase of any LEGO product(s) worth $150 and above. This promo will end by next week December 12, so be sure to plan your next LEGO purchase before then if you wish to bag this one.

 

LEGO Disney Frozen 2 Olaf’s Traveling Sleigh (40361)

97 pieces | Available from December 1 to 31, 2020 or while supplies last

This next freebie is not entirely new since it was already offered before in 2019 as one of the LEGO promotional items to promote the launch of  LEGO Disney Frozen 2 sets. However, if you missed out on Olaf’s Traveling Sleigh (40361) during that time, then here’s your chance to get it for free. For every single-receipt purchase of any of the following LEGO Disney Frozen 2 sets – 41164, 41165, 41166, 41167, 41168, 41169, and 43172 – worth $50 and above, you’ll have Disney’s most adorable snowman added to your cart for free. The set comes in at 97 pieces, and a great way to get Olaf’s minifigure for free.

 

LEGO Star Wars BB-8 (40288) polybag

48 pieces | Available from December 1 to 31, 2020 or while supplies last

Here’s another opportunity to bag a missed promotional, in case you missed this one back in 2018. The LEGO Star Wars BB-8 (40288) polybag was also one of the LEGO promotional items that were launched as a way of celebrating 2018’s LEGO May the 4th celebrations. This mini-build of BB-8 has proven to be quite popular that LEGO opted to do a re-run of this promo in October of the same year. And if for some reason you still missed out on this polybag freebie, then here’s your chance to bag this one. Coming in at 48 pieces, the LEGO Star Wars BB-8 will be available throughout December or while supplies last. It will be yours free for every single-receipt qualifying purchases of any LEGO Star Wars products worth $40 and above.

 

Needless to say, these freebies are nice little gifts that LEGO has in store for us this month. Just be sure to check with LEGO Shop@Home or with the LEGO brand store nearest you. Happy holidays and keep on building!

ICYMI: LEGO Creator Expert Botanical Collection Coming in 2021

It looks like LEGO is pushing forward with its plans of furthering wooing the AFOL community. This recent wave of third-party retailer reveals shows that there are a couple of LEGO 18+ sets on the horizon, and these sets look promising. From the short-lived LEGO Forma series to more recent LEGO mosaic offerings, now comes another series that is marketed to be one ultimate brick zen experience: the LEGO Creator Expert Botanical Collection is expected to arrive soon sometime in January next year. Check out these images courtesy of Polish online store Bonito.

These bonsai and bouquet inspired sets are both reminiscent of the creative works of Chris McVeigh and AC Pinlac. I love how the bonsai turned out, with its customizable leaf elements that can either be built as a typical green tree, or a beautiful brick rendition of cherry blossoms. Similarly, the bouquet may be modified in several ways and looks gorgeous arranged in a flower vase.

These sets are not yet listed over at LEGO Shop@Home, but we can expect a launch date of January 2021 alongside recently revealed LEGO 18+ 2021 sets such as next year’s modular, the LEGO Creator Expert Police Station (10278), and LEGO Art sets.  I’ll keep you posted once these LEGO Creator Expert Botanical Collection sets are up and listed, so be sure to subscribe and keep tabs with us here on our blogsite.

The LEGO Collectible Minifigures Series 21 seems to be comprised of only 12 characters, which is quite unusual considering that it usually has 16 figures to boast. Nevertheless, the current selection is pretty cool and comes packed with unique, first-for-2021 pieces and elements. Though LEGO is yet to announce their official names, we can obviously put our finger down on their most outstanding features. Let’s take a look at what each of these CMF characters has to offer, and let us know what is your favorite pick among this batch.

Like other modular sets of its caliber, the LEGO Creator Expert Police Station is packed with fun details and play features that adult LEGO fans will surely find endearing.

I’m pretty excited to discover the little surprises and details in this set myself.

Check Out These Images of LEGO Disney 2021 H1 Sets

Other than its wide-array of homegrown non-licensed sets (City, Creator, Friends, DOTS, etc), LEGO’s partnership with Disney is still going strong with its introduction of new-for-January 2021 sets. LEGO online retailer Van der Meulen has now published four LEGO Disney 2021 sets expected to arrive in the first half of 2021.

These sets are yet to appear on LEGO Shop@Home, but looking at these product images published by Van der Meulen, we can now have a pretty good grasp of what to expect from them.

First off, it’s quite obvious that the winner in this initial selection is the brick-version of the elemental spirit, Bruni from Frozen 2. This rendition of Bruni the Salamander is so cute like his on-screen counterpart, that I wouldn’t mind adding him to my AFOL’s collection.

LEGO also intends to continue its brick storybook adventures with Elsa’s Storybook Adventures (43189) inspired by the first Frozen film, and two upcoming LEGO Disney 2021 sets that are a nod to the more classic Disney films of The Little Mermaid, and Cinderella.

Though it wasn’t listed yet, it is interesting to note that there are rumors that LEGO will be releasing 3 or 4 sets dedicated to Walt Disney Pictures’ upcoming Raya and the Last Dragon. Though the latest animated movie is scheduled to be released in cinemas in April 2021, we might get to see some of these LEGO sets anytime soon.

For now, let’s take a look at what these sets have to offer. I’ll keep you posted once LEGO Shop@Home lists them on their site.

Bruni the Salamander (43186)

96 pieces | USD 14.99

Elsa’s Storybook Adventures (43189)

2021 LEGO Creator Expert Modular Set To Be Revealed Soon

We’re just a few days shy before we enter the last month of the year, and as is customary for LEGO, we are now in for a treat this Black Friday as we are about to witness the reveal of the upcoming 2021 LEGO Creator Expert Modular set that fans have been waiting for.

The teaser announcement came via LEGO’s social media channel, alongside other things to expect this Black Friday such as the LEGO Creator Expert Colosseum (10276) and other LEGO sets that were popular this 2020.

Word on the brick street says that this might be a modular police station that somehow resembles a museum at the same time. It somehow follows a building design with a classic Venetian vibe. It is also said to have around 3,000 pieces, featuring three or four levels, and also a helipad. It includes five minifigures, three of which are police officers. I’m not at liberty to show any images because of obvious embargo reasons, but if you don’t mind the spoilers, here’s a link to that image courtesy of eagle-eyed fans over at Eurobricks. This image was supposedly taken from a third-party retailer who is all too eager to share the details of this new 2021 LEGO Creator Expert Modular Set.

The anticipated 2021 LEGO Creator Expert Modular set is said to be a police station. We’ll just have to wait and see if it is the case. 

If such is the case, then having a police station is a nice addition to your sprawling LEGO City/Modular creation. I also like the fact that the LEGO designers behind this set opted for a classic Venetian-like approach (Brickset guesses that it is Chris McVeigh who is behind this set) for this next modular offering. This sets it apart from other LEGO City Police buildings that show a modern architectural design befitting of the LEGO City theme.

This upcoming 2021 LEGO Creator Expert Modular Set is slated to be revealed as part of LEGO’s Black Friday Showcase which will stream on Facebook at 10 AM EST/3 PM GMT/4 PM CET. Be sure to keep tabs on LEGO’s social media pages, and here at our blog site for more updates.

LEGO Ninjago 2021 First Wave of Set Images Released

LEGO Ninjago is still going strong, and next year sees a selection of LEGO Ninjago 2021 sets that are pretty impressive in my opinion. Other than the LEGO City, Friends, and Creator 2021 sets, fans can also expect a lot from the LEGO Ninjago theme which includes revamped battle kits and an awesome looking Titan Mech to boot.

Thanks once again to Dutch online toy retailer Van der Meulen, we can now take a look at some of the things that we can expect from this first wave of LEGO Ninjago 2021 sets. From the get-go, we can see that the LEGO Epic Battle Sets mark the theme’s 10th anniversary, with some of the most iconic battle scenes from the show. Aside from its spinner features, these sets also come with unique weapon pieces that expand our minifigure heroes arsenal.

Another highlight of this first wave of LEGO Ninjago 2021 sets is its mech-inspired set. By far, the LEGO Ninjago Zane’s Titan Mech Battle (71738) is, in my opinion, is one of the most impressive mech builds that theme has come up with recently. It is basically a re-imagining of 2015’s LEGO Ninjago Titan Mech Battle (70737), and its recent version certainly is 10x better than its predecessor. Though I’m not at liberty to publish its image right here, I’m sure a good Google and Instagram search will yield some positive results.

This initial offering of LEGO Ninjago 2021 sets is expected to be released on January 1st, 2021, over at LEGO Shop@Home and LEGO brand stores. They’re not yet listed on LEGO’s online shopping portal as of this posting, and I’ll update this article once there affiliate links go live. For now, let’s take a look at this.
