LEGO DC Comics Super Heroes Batman Cowl (76182) Now Available for Pre-Order at LEGO Shop@Home

If you recall from last week, Barnes & Noble has published the official images of the LEGO DC Comics Super Heroes Batman Cowl (76182), confirming earlier rumors that LEGO has now included a DC Comics character to its roster of so-called Helmet Collection sets. It was initially thought at that time that it might only be a Barnes  & Noble exclusive, but thankfully this brick-version of Batman’s Cowl is now available pre-order from LEGO Shop@Home as well.

Similar to Carnage and Venom, the LEGO DC Comics Super Heroes Batman Cowl (76182) is an 18+ set with the LEGO and comic book fan in mind.

LEGO Marvel Super Heroes Venom (76187) Officially Revealed

I guess you have to make space for one more brick-built LEGO sculpture this April. After a LEGO Marvel Super Heroes Carnage (76199) set was eventually unveiled a couple of weeks ago, it was only a matter of time before we see Marvel’s favorite symbiote officially given the LEGO treatment. LEGO Shop@Home has now officially listed a LEGO Marvel Super Heroes Venom (76187) set slated to arrive on April 26, 2021.

LEGO Marvel Super Heroes Venom

Though I understand that most LEGO Marvel fans are looking forward to having this new Venom set, I have to say that its reveal is a bit underwhelming. Partly because right off the bat, it is simply a recolored version of what we saw with Carnage’s brick version. In fact, it seems to use the same kind of LEGO elements (with a different color scheme of course), with 20 additional LEGO pieces thrown into it. However, to give this set its defining feature, a long protruding tongue and a unique printed tile piece bearing the anti-hero’s name, are also included in this official LEGO sculpture of Venom.

If you consider the LEGO Marvel Super Heroes Venom (76187) set as a must-have this April, then you may want to take a look at its product description and official images below. It will be available at the end of the month retailing for $59.99. You may click on the following affiliate link below to add this to your LEGO wishlist.

More LEGO Star Wars Helmets Revealed – Now Up at LEGO Shop@Home

After its initial launch in March of last year, LEGO has now added more Instagram-worthy sets under its LEGO Star Wars Helmets collection. And this time around, the Empire is getting another boost with the introduction of the LEGO Star Wars Darth Vader Helmet (75304), and the Scout Trooper Helmet (75305).

These latest additions to the LEGO Star Wars Helmets feature some of the most iconic figures in Star Wars lore. This most recent version of the Sith Lord is by far his largest brick sculpture to date. If you recall back in 2019, LEGO has also released a Target-exclusive LEGO Star Wars Darth Vader Bust (75227) as part of LEGO’s promotional event in celebrating LEGO Star Wars’ 20th anniversary. However, this year’s offering c0mes with almost 3 times the number of LEGO pieces compared to its predecessor.

Additionally, the LEGO Star Wars Scout Trooper Helmet (75305) comes as the third Imperial-inspired set among the LEGO Star Wars Helmet collection, following that of the Stormtrooper Helmet (75276) and TIE Fighter Pilot Helmet (75274).

WATCH: LEGO NASA Space Shuttle Discovery (10283) Designer Video

LEGO has just revealed its next commemorative, NASA-inspired set in the form of the LEGO NASA Space Shuttle Discovery (10283). The set celebrates the 31st anniversary of the original NASA STS-31 mission together with the launch of the Hubble Space Telescope back in April of 1990. And to give us a glimpse of the design process that went through the creation of this next LEGO direct-to-consumer set, LEGO designers Milan Madge, Mani Zamani, and Nico Vas give us a tour of how this came about through this LEGO designer video.

The LEGO NASA Space Shuttle Discovery (10283) is a larger, more detailed version of its predecessor, the LEGO Space Shuttle Discovery-STS-31 (7470) released in 2003. This more recent brick rendition of the Discovery clocks in at 2,354 pieces and is expected to retail for $200 starting April 1st.

As an 18+ set, the LEGO NASA Space Shuttle Discovery is not just a display piece but is also filled with plenty of play features that replicate the functionalities and accomplishments of its real-life counterpart. One of its more significant features is its accessible payload bay that contains a brick-version of the Hubble Space Telescope. The cockpit also reveals flight and mid-decks, plus seats for 5 crew members. And for a more glorious display piece, the set also comes with display stands to exhibit both the shuttle itself and the space telescope.

And like any exclusive set offering, the LEGO NASA Space Shuttle Discovery also comes with first-for-April-2021 LEGO pieces as revealed in this LEGO designer video. These include a 4x8x4 quarter-circle panel with pinholes for the payload wall, a 4x6x1 round windscreen with black frame print, and a 3x3x1 brick curved quarter circle.

Several new LEGO elements are introduced in the LEGO NASA Space Shuttle Discovery (10283).

The LEGO NASA Space Shuttle Discovery (10283) will be available in all LEGO brand stores and LEGO Shop@Home in April. Be sure to add this to your LEGO wishlist to be notified once it is available for purchase.

ICYMI: LEGO NASA Space Shuttle Discovery (10283) Landing this April

In case you missed it, the LEGO Group has officially announced another set that celebrates their creative collaboration with NASA. Unveiled earlier this week, the LEGO NASA Space Shuttle Discovery (10283) celebrates the launch of the original NASA STS-31 together with the Hubble Space Telescope in 1990.

The commemoration of this historic event is now immortalized in LEGO form through the LEGO NASA Space Shuttle Discvovery (10283) set, slated to arrive this April. And what better way to launch (no pun intended) this set is by having the first-ever American woman astronaut to have ever walked on space introduce this latest LEGO-NASA collab. Dr. Kathy Sullivan was even kind enough to even share some of her insights as a pioneering astronaut, and to encourage budding LEGO builders, engineers, and scientists to pursue a career in space exploration.

The LEGO NASA Space Shuttle Discovery (10283) is an 18+ set coming in at 2,354 pieces. The set will be directly available in all LEGO brand stores and LEGO Shop@Home for $200 beginning April 1, 2021. Read more about LEGO’s official press release about this new offering, and likewise you may click on the following affiliate link below if you wish to add this to your LEGO wishlist. This latest LEGO 18+  will certainly look magnificent beside other NASA-inspired sets such as the LEGO Ideas International Space Station (21321) and the LEGO Ideas NASA Apollo Saturn V (92176).

LEGO Marvel Carnage (76199) Now Up at LEGO Shop@Home

Last week, it was revealed that a villainous Marvel character will be added to the LEGO Helmet Collection in the form of the LEGO Marvel Carnage (76199). Initially offered as a Target pre-order exclusive, it is good to know that the set has finally appeared over at LEGO Shop@Home slated for an April 11, 2021 release.

LEGO Marvel Carnage (76199)

The LEGO Marvel Carnage (76199), which is basically more of a bust rather than a helmet, takes its cue from its notoriously evil villain counterpart from Marvel comics (which makes me also wonder if having such a vicious baddie in its roster of Marvel sets will run counter against LEGO’s values). This is not the first time that LEGO featured this ultra-violent character, though. There are two particular LEGO Marvel sets where this blood-colored symbiote is featured: 2015’s Carnage’s SHIELD Sky Attack (76036) and the more recent Spider-Man and Ghost Rider vs. Carnage (76173). And now having the LEGO Marvel Carnage (76199) helmet/bust under the LEGO 18+ series further seals Carnage’s place in the LEGO subthemes.

And in case you’re interested to add this set to your Instagram-worthy LEGO collection, then you may click the following affiliate link below to add this set to your LEGO wishlist. The LEGO Marvel Carnage (76199) set comes in at 546 pieces and will retail for $60 once it arrives in stores on April 11.

LEGO Amelia Earhart Tribute (40450) GWP Promo Extended

In case you haven’t started your LEGO shopping routine for this month and worrying that you have already missed the LEGO Amelia Earhart Tribute (40450) gift-with-purchase (GWP) set, then fear not. LEGO was kind enough to extend this promo until Wednesday this week.

In celebration of International Women’s Day this March, LEGO has released a new promotional item that celebrates the life and achievements of Amelia Earhart as the first female pilot to do a Transatlantic solo flight. This LEGO GWP set features Earhart’s iconic red 1932 Lockheed 5B Vega and an exclusive LEGO Amelia Earhart minifigure.

The LEGO Amelia Earhart Tribute (40450) promotional set is originally slated to be offered from March 6 to 14, 2021 as mentioned in the March 2021 LEGO Store Calendar. But thankfully, LEGO opted to extend this promo until Wednesday. And given the fact that it still appears in our LEGO Shop@Home cart upon check out is a good indication that LEGO has enough of these sets to go around.

LEGO Amelia Earhart Tribute
The availability of the LEGO Amelia Earhart (40450) gift-with-purchase set has been extended until this Wednesday, March 17 as seen in this promotional page from LEGO Shop@Home.

Exclusive LEGOLAND Water Park (40473) Set Revealed

LEGOLAND Parks has just revealed its next limited-edition set following last year’s LEGOLAND Fire Academy (40393). The LEGOLAND Water Park (40473) is slated to be offered exclusively at the LEGO Store located inside the theme park. This is good news actually, since it may suggest that LEGOLAND is already gearing up for its re-opening anytime soon. And like other tourist destinations, LEGOLAND is now trying to re-open as it tries to recover from the effects of the global pandemic. If you recall back in April last year, LEGOLAND was somewhat compelled to sell its exclusive sets due to its closure back then.

The LEGOLAND Water Park (40473) comes in at 359 pieces and is expected to retail for $29.99. It features a portion of the slides that can be found in the actual water park, a mini waterfall, a food cart, and a couple of poolside lounges with umbrella. It also comes with a selection of minifigures chilling out under the summer sun – a lady food cart vendor, a young boy with an ice cream accessory, a baby in a stroller, a mom with a baby bottle, and a guy in swimming attire.

If you and your family is a frequent visitor of LEGOLAND, then grabbing the LEGOLAND Water Park (40473) set is a great way to memorialize the experience. Plus, it’s a nice addition to your growing LEGOLAND collection which might include previous exclusive sets such as the LEGOLAND Castle (40306), LEGOLAND Driving School (40347), and the LEGOLAND Theme Park (40346). Just be sure to follow your local health protocols in your next visit. Keep safe everyone and happy building!
