Add More Fun to Your Builds With This Pair of LEGO Xtra Tape Accessories

Some LEGO fan websites spotted this piece of news several days ago, and I find it interesting to take note of them here on our blog site. LEGO Shop@Home in Europe has updated their listing to now include a pair of LEGO Xtra Tape accessories to jazz up your LEGO City builds.

The LEGO Xtra Tape may seem to be too simplistic (well, after all, it’s tape) – but looking at how it is functioned to provide texture to any builds, plus the additional LEGO pieces that go with them, I wouldn’t mind purchasing them for $7.99. Each of these LEGO Xtra Tape accessories measures at 15 meters in length, and comes in two variants: the Road Tape (854048) and the Water Tape (854065), both of which come with a few LEGO decorative pieces that can accentuate your next LEGO City build or underwater adventure.

These accessories are not yet available at LEGO Shop@Home in the US as of this posting, but we can expect this to go live starting June 1 together alongside upcoming LEGO summer 2020 sets such as those from the LEGO Friends, Marvel, and Brick Sketches themes to name a few.

Read on for the product descriptions of these LEGO Xtra Tape accessories to know more about these offerings.

LEGO Technic Lamborghini Sián (42115) Reveal Coming Soon

Earlier this year, LEGO has announced its first-ever collaboration with the Lamborghini company to offer the first LEGO Technic set centered on its latest flagship product. After several teasers on its social media sites, there’s strong reason to believe that this next big reveal will be the LEGO Technic Lamborghini Sián (42115).

According to LEGO’s latest tweet, the full reveal of this set will happen tomorrow on May 28.

Following the tradition of other LEGO partnerships with world-class automotive companies such as Porsche and Bugatti, LEGO has now teamed up with Automobili Lamborghini to create a brick-rendition of the latter’s Sián FKP 37. The Sián is the company’s first hybrid super sports car powered by a V12 engine, and running on hybrid technology using supercapacitors.

Lamborghini Sián (42115)
The inspiration behind LEGO’s latest flagship Technic set is the super sports car Lamborghini Sián

If you will look closely at LEGO’s most recent tweet, the headlights of its upcoming flagship LEGO Technic set bears a very close resemblance to that of the Lamborghini Sián. Its sides also match that of the super sportscar which comes in an olive-green color theme. As such, the LEGO Technic Lamborghini Sián (42115) is the third set in the line of the LEGO Technic Ultimate Series following the Porsche 911 GT3 RS (42056) in 2016 and Bugatti Chiron (42083) in 2018.

Here’s what Niels Henrik Horsted, LEGO Technic Marketing Director, has to say about this new partnership with Automobili Lamborghini:

“Following the success of the former Ultimate models, both the Porsche and the Bugatti, it was crucial for us to find a new partner with an iconic vehicle, an unmistakable design DNA and ground breaking use of technology.”

Lamborghini Sián (42115)

The LEGO Technic Lamborghini Sián will be available in LEGO brand stores and at LEGO Shop@Home starting June 1, 2020, with the grand unveiling to be done tomorrow. Be sure to keep tabs with LEGO’s official web and social media channels to catch this big reveal, or you may bookmark our blogsite to keep you notified.

Latest LEGO Vehicles Featured in the LEGO Store June 2020 Store Calendar

The LEGO Store June 2020 Store Calendar is now out, underscoring its latest line of brick-built vehicles including an attractive gift-with-purchase (GWP) set. Though it will take a lot of getting used to with regards to the many in-store activities that are effectively canceled in LEGO brand stores no thanks to our current pandemic, the LEGO Group has slowly adapted to the new normal by gradually opening its stores in the US. With that in mind, let’s take a quick look at what next month’s LEGO Store promotional calendar has to offer.

First off, we have some of LEGO’s most recent brick-built vehicle collection, including two of its larger sets that debuted this year: the LEGO Creator Expert Fiat 500 (10271) and the handsomely crafted LEGO Technic Dom’s Dodge Charger (42111) that took inspiration from the Fast & Furious films. Released earlier this year, we also have one of the first 8-stud wide LEGO Speed Champions sets in the form of the Ferrari F8 Tributo (76895) set. These sets and much more are all available at LEGO Shop@Home if you want to take a look.

Similar to this month’s freebie in the form of the LEGO City Beach Buggy (30369), we now have another GWP ride that fans will appreciate. The LEGO Creator Hot Rod (40409) will be yours for free for a minimum single-receipt purchase of LEGO products worth $85 and above. The qualifying purchase needed to bag this freebie is a bit higher as compared to other promotional items this year, but being a scaled model of its predecessor, the LEGO Model Team Blue Fury (5541) from the mid-90s (re-issued in 2004 as set 10151), plus coming in with two minifigures, then I guess I will not mind the qualifying purchase. The LEGO Creator Hot Rod (40409) is valued at $13, so having it as a freebie is a welcomed deal in itself. Be sure to check with your local LEGO store or over at LEGO Shop@Home starting June 1 for this freebie’s availability since this can quickly fly off the shelves. If you wish to see more of this collectible set, then I suggest that you check out The Brothers Brick’s extensive review.

LEGO Store June 2020

As I mentioned earlier, in-store activities are still restricted in all LEGO Stores, so the usual Build-and-Take and designer signing events are effectively canceled. Most LEGO stores are only allowing curbside pickups as of to date as part of LEGO’s compliance towards physical distancing guidelines. I guess its part of the so-called new normal so, we have to eventually adapt to these new systems that are slowly taking shape.

Nevertheless, the month of June has a lot to offer other than the abovementioned sets mentioned in the LEGO Store June 2020 calendar. We have a nice collection of LEGO Friends summer 2020 sets, new LEGO Marvel sets, a new Brick Sketches theme, and even the first-ever LEGO Technic Lamborghini set all slated to arrive next month. These and much more are enough good reasons to keep on building.

Stay home and stay safe everyone!

LEGO has now made it possible to make learning more fun at home.

More LEGO Friends Summer 2020 Sets Coming in June

Earlier this month, we caught a glimpse of things to come for the LEGO Friends summer 2020 lineup of sets, including an interesting mix of new LEGO pieces and animal figures. This time, LEGO has updated its servers and adds two additional LEGO Friends sets slated to be released next month.

This next wave of LEGO Friends sets continues the summer vacation of the gang while doing animal rescue work on the side as inspired by National Graphic. These new sets, the LEGO Friends Alpaca Mountain Jungle Rescue (41432) and Party Boat (41433), features two new animal figures in the LEGO Friends theme. Set 41432 features a brick-built mountain/volcano with a trio of cute alpaca figures, while the Party Boat also includes the new pink flamingo figure that can also be seen in related LEGO Friends summer 2020 sets like the Beach House (41428) and Summer Fun Water Park (41430).

A Look at the LEGO Marvel Iron Man Helmet (76165)

The LEGO Marvel Super Heroes Summer 2020 sets have been officially revealed, and one particular set that caught my AFOL’s eye is the LEGO Marvel Iron Man Helmet (76165). The announcement of this set is a welcomed surprise actually, and a fitting tribute to one of the pillars of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Thanks to the Laughing Place, we now have a better look at what to expect from the upcoming LEGO Marvel Iron Man Helmet (76165) and what it means to the trend of buildable display helmets later in the future. To be accurate, we only have a couple of images for this set as of today, so I do hope to see its respective listing at LEGO Shop@Home anytime soon.

LEGO Marvel Iron Man Helmet

From the get-go, LEGO intends to give this set its 18+ branding making it clear that this set is intended for AFOLs or adult fans of LEGO as a buildable display set. True to their word, the LEGO Marvel Iron Man Helmet (76165) follows the same aesthetics as that of the LEGO Star Wars Helmet Collection such as the TIE Fighter Pilot Helmet (75274), Stormtrooper Helmet (75276) and Boba Fett Helmet (75277). At 480 pieces, this brick rendition of Tony Stark’s helmet also comes in a similar scale as compared to its Star Wars counterpart.  LEGO also seems to be aiming for a uniform display base for all of its collectible helmets, including a standard nameplate for all of them.

LEGO Marvel Iron Man Helmet

The box art of the Iron Man Helmet also follows the same design as its predecessors, with the 18+ logo prominently displayed in front. LEGO intends this brick sculpture to be more of a display set that appeals to older LEGO collectors. The Avengers logo is also included in front adding an MCU vibe into it – a fitting tribute to a fallen hero that we all cried for during his final heroic moments in Avengers: Endgame. Among the helmet series, this one definitely has a reserved spot in my collection.

The LEGO Marvel Iron Man Helmet is expected to arrive in Target stores on June 1, though we can also expect it to be available by then at LEGO stores both online and in-store since there was no mention that it is a store exclusive.

So what do you think of this latest addition to the LEGO helmet series? Will you give this a thumbs up? Do you have other licensed characters in mind that are fitting to be given the LEGO helmet treatment? Let me know what you think in the comments below.

LEGO Marvel Super Heroes Summer 2020 Lineup Officially Announced

Earlier today, Yahoo has just announced the LEGO Marvel Super Heroes summer 2020 lineup of sets that pays tribute to the Earth’s mightiest heroes. It’s been more than a year since we saw the conclusion of MCU’s Phase 4 in Avengers: Endgame and this time around LEGO is throwing another batch of sets that relive those action-packed moments. Same as before, they may not accurately reflect those particular MCU scenes, but LEGO’s brick renditions are still to be desired. And to top it off, this summer 2020 series now gives our first brick-built Iron Man Bust in tribute to the legacy of Tony Stark.

While two of these are now listed at LEGO Shop@Home, the remaining LEGO Marvel Super Heroes summer 2020 sets, including the Iron Man Bust, are still to be included. You may want to click on the following links below if you wish to add them to your LEGO wishlist. Yahoo also mentions a Target release date of June, so we’ll have to see if these sets will also be available at LEGO stores by then. Check out these images courtesy of Yahoo and the Laughing Place.

LEGO Monkie Kid’s Delivery Bike (30341) Polybag Arriving Soon

The announcement of the LEGO Monkie Kid theme has been welcomed positively by LEGO fans, and it appears that there will be an additional polybag set to look forward to. A LEGO Monkie Kid’s Delivery Bike (30341) polybag has been introduced, and I guess its just a matter of time before it lands in US LEGO Stores.

Monkie Kid's Delivery Bike (30341)

A report from the Brickfinder suggests that a polybag will accompany the new LEGO Monkie Kid theme, similar to other LEGO themes or product series. The said polybag was first spotted during the LEGO Monkie  Kid’s Shanghai launch event last May 15 and was subsequently made available at the LEGO brand store in Shanghai for a minimum single-receipt purchase of any LEGO products and merchandise worth RMB369 (roughly $50 and above). Other than the LEGO Monkie Kid’ Delivery Bike (30341) polybag, there were also other exclusive promotional freebies that were given away at the said LEGO Store such as a LEGO Monkie Kid commemorative brick and a LEGO Monkie Kid Storage Head.

The LEGO Monkie Kid’s Delivery Bike (30341) features an alternate version of Monkie Kid wearing his kitchen garb, similar to what you can find in sets such as Pigsy’s Food Truck (80009) and Red Son’s Inferno Truck (80011). The delivery bike itself is a great addition to the overall theme, with its clever, brick-built bamboo steamer attached at the back. The polybag also seems to include a unique printed 1×2 plate, though I really can’t place my finger on what it is looking at the image.

As of to date, this polybag is yet to be seen in LEGO Shop@Home in the US, but my bet is that it might be included as a promotional freebie anytime soon or once the LEGO Store June Calendar is published.

The LEGO Monkie Kid sets are now available, and if you wish to take a closer look at these, you can find a good number of crystal clear images right here. Thanks again to the Brickfinder for the heads up.

LEGO Monkie Kid Now Available at LEGO Shop@Home

Will get to know more about the details of the story behind Monkie Kid when it’s animated tie-in series arrives.

Watch the series’ video trailer below.

LEGO Monkie Kid Animated Series

LEGO Monkie Kid Animated Series

There is no further info regarding when and where the series will be aired, but we’ll probably get more updates in the coming days. The artwork featured in the LEGO Monkie Kid animated series somehow deviates from LEGO’s usual style of animation, which underscores LEGO’s brand of humor. From the looks of it, the show is a nice fusion of both oriental and modern art concepts that shows an alternate continuity of the 500-year old epic story.

The LEGO Monkie Kid sets are slated to be available globally by tomorrow, May 16, with China, Singapore, Hongkong, and Malaysia having a head start today. Though LEGO Shop@Home in the US is yet to update its servers to include these sets in their listing, fans have been sharing across social media that some US LEGO stores have been selling these sets earlier than expected. Not really sure if these early sales can be considered “official” in a way, but you may want to check with your local LEGO brand store first for product availability. Most of LEGO’s physical stores have opened already so you have the option of doing your in-store purchase. However, due to the on-going pandemic, I do recommend that you exercise due caution in going out and visiting public places. I will still opt for online purchases for my LEGO fix for the time being.

I’ll keep you posted once the product listings for LEGO Monkie Kid sets go live at shop.LEGO.com, so stay tuned. Thanks to The Brothers Bricks for sharing the vid.
