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.

LEGO Star Wars The Skywalker Saga Release Date Announced

It’s been almost a year since the announcement came out regarding the biggest LEGO Star Wars video game as of to date. And this time around, we now have a release date for the highly anticipated LEGO Star Wars The Skywalker Saga.

Star Wars.com’s official YouTube channel made the announcement earlier today, scheduling the game’s release date on August 20. Check out the video below at the 1:45 mark.

UPDATE: It seems that there has been a slip-up on this one since the video is no longer available for viewing. Oopsie…

As previously announced on their blogsite, the LEGO Star Wars The Skywalker Saga will feature what could be the most expansive video game of the franchise, covering the entire span of all nine Star Wars films. It’s not just a collection of nine distinct video games based on the films, but an integrated whole where players can choose what level or world or episode if you may, and even their favorite Star Wars hero or villain among a roster of almost 500 playable characters.

LEGO Star Wars The Skywalker Saga

Jonathan Smith: We’re all fans; there’s no shortage of characters we’d love to play with. And you can’t ask us to pick a single favorite! It’s the fact that the whole cast is brought together, uniquely in this LEGO form — the complete collection, from Admiral Ackbar to Zorii Bliss — which makes the game so special.

Craig Derrick: There are nearly 500 characters in this game, with many of them playable. When choosing characters for a game this large, we just looked at every film in the saga and tried to say “yes” as much as possible. That said, it often comes down to storytelling and the specific role of the character in the quests and game progression. Of course, we have almost all of your favorite heroes and villains from the films, many background players, a few surprises, and…Yaddle!

Needless to say, the LEGO Star Wars The Skywalker Saga will definitely be LEGO and TT Games’ biggest game release of this year. Keep your radars open for more updates, and I’ll keep you posted once pre-orders are around for this game.

LEGO Star Wars Death Star II Battle (40407) Building Instructions Now Available

May the 4th is now officially over, and in case you missed out on this year’s exclusive LEGO Star Wars gift-with-purchase set, you might be glad to know that LEGO servers have uploaded the building instructions for the LEGO Star Wars Death Star II Battle (40407).

LEGO Star Wars Death Star II Battle

From May 1 to 4, this promotional set was automatically given to LEGO customers whose LEGO Star Wars purchase reached $75 and above. Coming in at 235 pieces, the LEGO Star Wars Death Star II Battle (40407) follows a microscale diorama format depicting that epic trench run scene between a TIE Interceptor and Rebel A-Wing Ship from Episode VI – Return of the Jedi.

Thanks to LEGO Customer Service, we can now try to recreate this limited-edition set using its uploaded building instructions. Check out the following parts list and see if you have the parts needed to recreate this build.

Save for the exclusive 2×4 commemorative printed plate, I think you’ll need to improvise for those new 2×4 right and left wedge plates (parts 6295293 and 6295295 respectively) to somehow create a semblance of the microscaled TIE Interceptor in case you don’t have these. If you noticed, these recently released special plates are only found on two, new LEGO Star Wars sets: the Sith TIE Fighter (75272) and TIE Fighter Helmet (75274). In case you don’t have these parts, I’m sure we can find a suitable replacement for these parts to create that sleek, pointed form of the TIE Interceptor.

If you wish to build your own version of the LEGO Star Wars Death Star II Battle, you can get its building instructions for free from the LEGO Customer Service portal. On a similar note, you might be interested to know that the building instructions for last year’s similar May the 4th freebie, the LEGO Star Wars Battle of Endor 20th Anniversary Edition (40362) set, is also available for download.

And while you’re at it, be sure to check out the latest LEGO Star Wars sets now available at LEGO Shop@Home. Happy building!

26 LEGO Ideas Projects Qualify for the First 2020 LEGO Ideas Review Stage

I haven’t covered much of LEGO Ideas recently, so looking back at how things went during these past few weeks are certainly quite a surprise. A groundbreaking, 26 LEGO Ideas projects all qualified for this year’s First 2020 LEGO Ideas Review Stage. It’s unprecedented, considering the fact that we only get to see around a dozen entries or so every review stage.

I guess its a testament on how active the LEGO fan community has been lately considering most of us are forced to stay home during these times.

I also reckon that it will take some time before we can hear the outcome of these results, considering all the fan interviews and IP concerns that need to be hurdled.

I also have my personal selections, and I’m hoping product ideas such as the Sonic Mania – Green Hill Zone, Knight Rider- KITT or The Iron Giant will eventually become official LEGO sets.

New LEGO Star Wars AT-AT (75288) Listed at Amazon Japan

LEGO May the 4th now officially begins, and it looks like LEGO still has some surprises in store. Thanks to Amazon Japan, we now have a look at the new LEGO Star Wars AT-AT (75288), set to be released in August.

This latest brick rendition of the Imperial All Terrain Armored Transport is the LEGO Star Wars 5th set released under this category. First released in 2007 as a full-sized set (set 10178), this latest version of the behemoth now comes in at 1,267 pieces making it the largest LEGO Star Wars AT-AT to be offered. It also includes a substantial number of minifigures which include Luke Skywalker, General Veers, 2 AT-AT Pilots, and 2 Snowtroopers.

LEGO Star Wars AT-AT (75288)

I find it rather odd that Amazon Japan was the first to spill the beans on this one, considering that most of the latest LEGO Star Wars sets were revealed by LEGO themselves. From the new and highly popular LEGO Star Wars helmets, upcoming LEGO Star Wars Mandalorian sets, D-O (75278), and the latest UCS model the A-Wing Starfighter  (75275), all of these are directly distributed via LEGO Shop@Home. So having the new LEGO Star Wars AT-AT (75288) revealed via another retailer is a bit of a surprise. In any case, I expect this to be listed at LEGO’s online shopping portal anytime soon and, will be made available on August 1 alongside the LEGO Star Wars BrickHeadz The Mandalorian and the Child (75317) and the 501st Legion Legion Clone Troopers (75280).

Here’s what Amazon Japan has to say about the LEGO Star Wars AT-AT (75288). Pardon me for the rough Google translation. Thanks to the Brickfinder for the heads up.

LEGO Star Wars AT-AT (75288)

1,267 pieces | ¥21,139

LEGO Star Wars AT-AT (75288)

Join Luke Skywalker and fight on the planet Hoth against the AT-AT, and General Veers, the commander of the Imperial Army! Watch out for the AT-AT’s spring shooters, heavy blasters and speeder bikes! Defeat the Imperial Troopers with Luke’s Lightsaber! Defeat the AT-AT by attaching a bomb to it!

May 2020 LEGO Store Calendar Highlights and More

May the 4th is just around the corner, as highlighted by LEGO’s May 2020 LEGO Store Calendar. And in keeping up with this year’s busiest week for LEGO Star Wars fans, LEGO is now doing its share of promotions and offerings from the galaxy far, far away.

Now just a word of caution – I am not encouraging all of you to go out there for a frenzied shopping spree to get the latest Star Wars merch. Since LEGO and other establishments have complied with the government’s marching orders to stay at home then, by all means, let’s continue to do so. So until such time that we ease up on our quarantine guidelines, LEGO has made it clear that it will keep its 150+ stores around the world temporarily closed until further notice.

But of course, we don’t necessarily need to remove the fun from this otherwise festive occasion. LEGO Shop@Home is still up and running and we can still enjoy the many LEGO freebies that LEGO has to offer. With that out of the way, let’s check out the details of next month’s LEGO promotional and freebies. You may also download a PDF version of the May 2020 LEGO Store Calendar via LEGO.com.

This year’s LEGO Star Wars Ultimate Collector Series offering will be the A-Wing Starfighter (75275). Coming in at  1,673 pieces this set will retail for $199.99 starting May 1.

 

Free Limited-Edition LEGO Star Death Star II Battle (40407) Set

The LEGO May the 4th gift-with-purchase (GWP) set has been revealed last week, and it pays homage to that trench run scene aboard the Empire’s Death Star II straight from Episode 6 Return of the Jedi. This LEGO Star Wars GWP set will only be available from May 1 to 4 or until supplies last. This micro build will be added to your cart automatically once your LSW purchases reach $75 or more, so I hope you don’t miss out on this one.

May 2020 LEGO Store Calendar

Double VIP points are back for all LEGO Star Wars purchases. If you’re eyeing on those sleek LEGO Star Wars helmets or that cute little D-O (75278) set, you’ll definitely get your money’s worth with the double VIP points that come with them.

 

Free LEGO Mother’s Day Card (5005878)

This offer will be available from May 4 to 10 and will be added to your cart once your LEGO purchase reaches $40 and above.

 

Free LEGO City Beach Buggy (30369)

 May 18 to 31, 2020

If you plan your purchases carefully for May, then chances are, you can still get this nice LEGO City polybag for free. For the same minimum single-receipt purchase of $40 and above of any LEGO set or merchandise, this beach combing mini build will be included in your cart upon checkout. I’ve always been a fan of polybags especially those from the LEGO City theme, so this one will be a nice part of any collection.

 

Though the first week of May is predominantly for LSW fans, you’ll be glad to know that some of the LEGO Minions sets are now available including other film-inspired sets such as the LEGO DC Superheroes Wonder Woman vs Cheetah (76157) and the LEGO Technic Dom’s Dodge Charger (42111). For CMF collectors, the LEGO Collectible Minifigures Series 20 (71027) is also available as well.

And while we’re waiting for this pandemic to be somewhat under control, LEGO has launched its #LetsBuildTogether campaign to help LEGO fans and families have a better home experience during these trying times. For more info, you may visit LEGO.com/LetsBuildTogether. You may also want to check out Tyler’s series of video tutorials called Quarantine Creations for more inspiring builds.

Keep safe and happy building!

New Film-Inspired Licensed LEGO Sets Now Available at LEGO Shop@Home

LEGO Shop@Home has updated its listing to now include several tie-in sets based on upcoming films. Universal Pictures’ Minions The Rise of Gru, and Warner Bros’ Wonder Woman 1984 may have been rescheduled unfortunately due to the coronavirus pandemic, but this has not derailed LEGO from its plans of releasing their respective LEGO sets this April, including a LEGO Technic set devoted to the Fast & Furious film franchise. These latest film-inspired licensed LEGO sets are now up at LEGO’s online shopping portal, all of which can be conveniently ordered online now that LEGO Stores are temporarily closed in compliance with the government’s stay-at-home guidelines.

However, please take note that in the case of the LEGO Minions sets, not all of them are available for the time being. If you recall, LEGO initially listed five sets under this theme last February but has to eventually remove three of them from their current line-up probably due to the eventual rescheduling of its tie-in film. I understand that some of these sets may offer a potential spoiler for the film so we might have to wait until July of next year when the movie is set to be released.

The LEGO DC Superheroes Wonder Woman vs Cheetah (76157) set, on the other hand, is now released months ahead of the theatrical debut of the DCEU sequel Wonder Woman 1984. Initially considered to be a Target store exclusive, its good to see that it will also be available directly from LEGO. The set itself does not spill any major plot points, except showing us how a version of Cheetah may look like in minifig form and the confrontation between them at the transmitter tower.

Finally, LEGO motorheads will be glad to know that the LEGO Technic Dom’s Dodge Charger (42111) from the Fast & Furious films is now also up LEGO Shop@Home. Based on the classic 1970s Dodge Charger R/T, the set is an authentic replication of the iconic muscle car.

Click on the following links below for more info on these film-inspired licensed LEGO sets. Since the following are affiliate links, any purchases that you’ll make through them will go a long way in helping us in maintaining our blog site. Stay safe and happy building!
