LEGO Minecraft is here to stay this 2019! And other than the introduction of new, larger buildable figures of Steve, Alex, and a Minecraft Skeleton, LEGO now introduces its very first LEGO Minecraft polybag with the Steve and Creeper (30393) polybag set. This particular polybag adds to the roster of other sets due to be released this year – particularly those coming from the LEGO City, LEGO Movie 2, and LEGO Marvel themes – whose building instructions were found online by Brickset.
This is a very welcomed gesture from LEGO since the Minecraft theme has been sorely lacking from polybags since its introduction 6 years ago. The LEGO Minecraft Steve and Creeper (30393) polybag features the typical Steve with a sword accessory, and a Creeper minifig, including a buildable TNT box. This simple build also comes with a play feature that allows builders to ‘launch’ the TNT by pushing a lever connected to a Technic pin. Like any other polybag set, this is also a great opportunity to have these two LEGO Minecraft minifigures added to your collection without breaking the bank. For your reference, here are the building instructions for this polybag.
Details are scant though as of this posting, regarding the availability of the LEGO Minecraft Steve and Creeper (30393) polybag, and my guess is that it may be a part of an upcoming promotional at LEGO stores and LEGO Shop@HOme. I’ll keep you posted as more info comes in. Be sure to check out as well the rest of this year’s LEGO Minecraft sets. Just click on the links below for more info at shop.LEGO.com
It’s this time of the year when you can expect the 2019 LEGO Catalog to be rolling out in LEGO brand stores. And in case you haven’t received your copy yet, LEGO has been kind enough to upload a PDF version of this catalog, highlighting more than a hundred sets to watch out for in this first half of 2019. This may not be something new for some of us, given that there are those who managed to have a copy of this catalog ahead of LEGO uploading its online version. Nevertheless, it’s still nice that this is now made available for everyone to see. You may either view or download a copy of the 2019 LEGO Catalog right here.
If you have a copy already, let’s take a moment to look at some of its highlights, and of what to expect from LEGO starting this January.
To start with, LEGO is understandably keen in heavily promoting its brick-built film. Gracing the cover of the 2019 LEGO Catalog are none other than the main characters of the LEGO Movie 2: The Second Part. The table of contents underscores LEGO’s preference to present their new sets and product in a developmental fashion starting with the LEGO Duplo and Juniors line. Though the latter will eventually be replaced by the new 4+ theme, LEGO is still giving some room for some newer LEGO Juniors sets.
LEGO has also confirmed what we have shared before last November that indeed, Disney and LEGO have teamed up once again to come with another wave of Pixar inspired sets. Toy Story 4 is still far off slated to be released in theaters on June 21, so the details about these LEGO tie-in sets is still under wraps to avoid unintended film spoilers. What we are sure about these upcoming sets, as the 2019 LEGO Catalog suggests, is that it will be released under the 4+ and Duplo themes.
LEGO Disney Princess is also here to stay, with LEGO adding a “Build and Swap” play feature similar to modular sets.
LEGO Friends also introduces another novelty set with its Heart Box series. This series of stackable builds features minidoll versions of Andrea, Emma, Stephanie, Olivia, and Mia. Each set also doubles as a sort of a keepsake holder where you can keep each minidoll and other related accessories.
The heroic firefighters and aerial police of LEGO City take center stage in this first wave of 2019 LEGO City sets. This newest collection highlights new for 2019 features such as a 3-stud multi-shot water cannon, a water pump that launches LEGO water elements, floating minifigure parachute, and the return of the light and sound brick as demonstrated in the new Downtown Fire Brigade (60216) and Sky Police Air Base (60210).
And of course, the current CMF rave is still looking more awesome in the 2019 LEGO Catalog – the LEGO Movie 2 Collectible Minifigures (71023). What makes this latest CMF series more exciting is the inclusion of the main Wizard of Oz characters and several costumed minifigs. While the LEGO Movie 2 CMF is expected to hit LEGO Stores sometime next month, the 2019 LEGO Catalog already teased on the arrival of the LEGO CMF Series 19 sometime in May. Expect more news to come in about this next wave of collectible minifigures as early as next month, especially that the Nuremberg and New York Toy Fairs are just around the corner. For the rest of the LEGO Movie 2 tie-in sets, be sure to visit LEGO Shop@Home for details.
And of course, the epic conclusion to the finger-snapping catastrophe that Thanos brought to the entire Marvel Cinematic Universe will finally be revealed in Avengers: Endgame scheduled to be in theaters this April. The LEGO Marvel fandom can hardly wait on what LEGO has in store to celebrate the release of this grand film. Suffice it to say, LEGO and Disney are keeping a tight lid on any potential spoilers (which often comes from other third-party resellers) that may come along. So for the time being, the 2019 LEGO Catalog only has a single page, “Avengers Coming Soon” reminder for all of us. Perhaps the upcoming Toy Fairs hold the keys to unlocking these secrets – we just have to wait and see.
So there you have it – the 2019 LEGO Catalog from January to June sure has plenty of sets to offer to everybody. With more than a hundred sets to choose from during this first half of the year, it’s a bit of a challenge to zero in on that one set that will top your LEGO “must have” list. Which among these will top your own list? Let me know in the comments below.
LEGO has finally released a stash of official images and complete product description of the mammoth LEGO Movie 2 Welcome to Apocalypseburg set (70840). True enough, it was on eBay where we first spotted this earlier last month (the post was eventually taken down as of this writing), while at the same time, a certain YouTuber is now exploiting a technical-legal loophole that allows him to keep his review video up in the video sharing platform in spite of the embargo mandated by LEGO. But whatever is the case, it is still good to see these crystal clear images of LEGO’s largest TLM2 tie-in set, Welcome to Apocalypseburg (70840).

It’s now the post-Christmas period of the overall year-end Holiday season. As the days count down to the end of 2018, businesses and retailers start taking stock of their earnings even as they fire off some last-minute promo or other. And LEGO, according to Amazon Australia, was a major seller. The Australian arm of the global online retail giant Amazon has reported some new records in terms of online shopping following the major December Holiday occasions of Christmas and Boxing Day 2018. According to their estimates for the past several weeks, LEGO was deemed Amazon Australia’s best-selling toy brand overall.
To further elaborate, among the most sought-after LEGO products in the year-end rush that endeared LEGO to be the best-selling toy brand are sets from the LEGO Harry Potter and Star Wars themes, both licensed LEGO lines that have had major set releases in this year, including the massive Hogwarts Castle (71043) and the Kessel Run Millennium Falcon (75212).
With the Holiday season rolling into what could be termed its final phases, LEGO is pulling out all the stops in order to get their products out to consumers, from the big box sets to the little plastic polybags with their simple builds. And some of these used to be difficult to find in stores.
To elaborate, some of the LEGO polybags that are now finding on retail shelves used to be exclusive items at either Shop@Home or other sources. For example, the LEGO City Arctic Ice Saw (30360) was initially only ever packaged with an issue of Nat Geo Kids Magazine over in the UK, but has now been spotted for sale at Wal-Mart.
Next we have the LEGO Friends Friendship Flower (30404) polybag. Original part of a “gift with minimum-purchase” offer at Shop@Home this February, it apparently became available on Toys R Us before its mid-year shutdown. Target stores now have it available.
Last but not least, there is the LEGO Creator Pelican (30571), a polybag featuring 62 pieces that can be assembled into three possible configurations, all of animals. Like the Friends Friendship Flower (30404) above, one might be able to find this on Target.
These LEGO polybag sightings were courtesy of a regular follower on our fellow LEGO news source The Brick Fan; kudos to them.
We now have our second LEGO Movie 2 polybag hot on the heels of the recently revealed Mini Master-Building MetalBeard (30528). Brickset has recently updated its database, and we now get to see the sequel’s second tie-in polybag in the form of the LEGO Movie 2 Star Stuck Emmet (30620) polybag, If you recall from the official trailer, we get to see Sweet Mayhem causing havoc in the already torn down city of Bricksburg in pursuit of Lucy and Emmet. The battle-ready citizens of Bricksburg run for cover as they flee towards the Bat Cave. The moment that Emmet, Lucy and Unikitty finally made their way to Batman’s fortress, one of Sweet Mayhem’s Star Bombs got stuck in between the massive gates of the Bat Cave.
Unfortunately for our heroes, Emmet can’t resist the adorable, seemingly hurt Star Bomb and eventually gave in and opened the gate. Eventually, LEGO managed to capture those huge gates in microscale form with the LEGO Movie 2 Star Stuck Emmet (30620) polybag. Though Emmet is present in almost all upcoming LEGO Movie 2 sets, making it relatively easy to get one, this new polybag a cost-effective way to grab that new Emmet minifigure.
Small as it may seem, this set also features a moveable gate that opens and closes using a gear and wrench piece. It also replicates the massive gates using several sand green Nexo Knights shield pieces and includes two printed tiles that show two alternate expressions of the Star Bomb.
Unlike the Mini Master-Building MetalBeard (30528) polybag which was reported to have been spotted at several Walmart stores, we don’t have any word yet on where to find the Star Stuck Emmet (30620) polybag. We’ll let you know once more news comes in, or feel free to give us a tip if ever you spot one of this. For now, if you haven’t seen the rest of the awesome LEGO Movie 2 sets offered by LEGO, then be sure to head over LEGO Shop@Home to know more about them.
This next eBay listing finally puts all doubt to rest with regards to a LEGO Movie 2 D2C set. As early as September, we already made mention of a possible a direct-to-consumer (D2C) set that is tied-in with the LEGO Movie 2 sequel. It is somewhat expected considering such a large and promising theme such as this one. Though LEGO has already released a huge stash of new TLM2 sets slated to be available in January, we are yet to see what the theme’s D2C set will be. As it seems, we don’t need to wait that long to have a glimpse at this year’s first direct-to-consumer set. Coming in at 3,178 pieces, we now have our first glimpse at the LEGO Movie 2 Welcome to Apocalypseburg! (70840) set, and a handful of minor spoilers that are revealed through this set. Check out the following images taken from a post uploaded by eBay seller suaresaman.
Though not exactly scaled as that from the movie (which will be rather difficult and huge if it will be rendered to an actual LEGO set), the designers were able to accurately copy the head of the Statue of Liberty and add some impressive details on it. Welcome to Apocalypseburg! (70840) also sports several play features that are put together in a modular style building. There are also some interesting building techniques that are highlighted in this set, such as how the arm of the Statue of Liberty is also used as a ladder, and building the head of the statue in such a tilting manner.
But what could be the most interesting aspect of the set is its large selection of minifigures: we get to see Scribble Cop, Larry the Barista, Fuse Fulminant, “Where Are My Pants?” Guy, Roxxi, Chainsaw Dave, Mo-Hawk, Harley Quinn, Green Lantern, Wasteland Batman, Lucy and Emmet.
As mentioned in the trailer, everyone (perhaps with the exception of Emmet) in the once peaceful and thriving town of Bricksburg was definitely affected by the events of Taco Tuesday. The attack of the Duplons really left an impression in the lives of Bricksburg’s minifigure residents. We even get to see a battle-ready Scribble Cop, which frankly, came in as a surprise because as far as the cast is concerned, it is still yet to be revealed whether or not Liam Neeson’s minifigure character will return for the sequel. From the looks of it, we’ll be seeing the split-personality cop once more though it is quite uncertain if he will have a larger role to play in the film.
It’s also a welcome surprise to see “Where Are My Pants” Guy in a new mean-looking garb. He still has his floral shirt on, but now with several leather straps, and of course, minus the pants. By far, it also looks like that this is the first, and perhaps the only set, where we can have Mad Max versions of Larry the Barista and Surfer Dave (now dubbed as Chainsaw Dave). We also get another Wasteland Batman, which first made its appearance in the Battle-Ready Batman and MetalBeard (70836). Overall, it a nice selection of minifigures that complements the wacky tone of the Welcome to Apocalypseburg! (70840) set. I was just hoping that LEGO could have added the Sewer Babies just for good measure.
The eBay listing is still up as of this posting. But at $450 in the secondary market, I guess we’re better off waiting for the official release of this next D2C set. Thanks to Scott for the tip.
With just over a week left before Christmas, holiday shopping is at fever pitch by now, and some retailers are throwing sales and discounts out to the public in order to attract crowds of bargain hunters. Of course, that includes LEGO sets being given juicy sale prices by major retailers, particularly LEGO Marvel Superheroes discounts over at retail store giant Walmart.
These particular LEGO Marvel Superheroes discounts offered by Walmart, one from this year and the other from 2017, are the Beware the Vulture (76083) and Quantum Realm Explorers (76109). Both of these being set tie-ins to MCU films Spider-Man: Homecoming and Ant-Man and the Wasp respectively.
In comparison, LEGO Marvel Superheroes Beware the Vulture (76083) sees its $39.99 retail price cut by 42% to $22.99 while the Quantum Realm Explorers set (76109) goes from $19.87 to $13.99 (30%). The latter is touted to be the lowest discount rate that has been offered for this MCU Ant-Man tie-in.
By the way, the Beware the Vulture set (76083) available at Walmart comes with a free, 2-day shipping attached to it as well, seeing perhaps how long it’s been on shelves by now.
