From the Rumor Mill: Here’s A Round-Up of all the Upcoming LEGO Sets for H1 2021

If you’re keeping a watchful eye on some of the things that are happening in the LEGO community scene, then you might have noticed that last month was a roller coaster ride of rumors and teases that gave us a glimpse of what we can expect from LEGO next year.

LEGO Super Mario
And of course, LEGO obviously has more plans for its latest collaboration with Nintendo. In 2021, we can expect another series of Character Pack similar to its LEGO Super Mario Character Pack Series 1 (71361)

71380 Starter Course Set 2 (366 pieces, €59.99)

71386 Character Pack 2 (€3.99 per blind bag)

The names of these upcoming LEGO sets under the Super Mario theme are understandably kept under wraps, but from the looks of it, we can expect a new Starter Course set, 3 Expansion Sets, 2 additional Super Mario costumes, or Power-Ups, and another series of Character Packs. The Starter Course Set 2 is quite interesting and we’ll have to see how this will turn out.

LEGO Harry Potter

Rumor has it that the LEGO Harry Potter theme will receive its Disney-like series of Storybook Adventures, but in this case, based on the various classrooms of the iconic Hogwarts Castle. Each LEGO Harry Potter Storybook playset is expected to retail for €29.99, with a release date of January 2021.

75382 Transfiguration Classroom (??? Pieces, €29.99)
75383 Potions Classroom (??? Pieces, €29.99)
75384 Herbology Classroom (??? Pieces, €29.99)
75385 Charms Classroom (??? Pieces, €29.99)

LEGO Star Wars
Yeah, I know it may sound redundant already but hey, the Millennium Falcon still holds a special place in LEGO Star Wars fandom. As proof of that, we can expect another LEGO Star Wars Millennium Falcon Microfighter similar to what we have in set 75193 to be part of a repertoire of upcoming LEGO sets.

75295 Millennium Falcon Microfighter (101 pieces, €9.99)
75299 The Mandalorian Set (276 pieces, €29.99)
75301 X-Wing (Red Five) (474 pieces, €49.99)
75300 TIE Fighter (432 pieces, €39.99)
75297 Resistance X-Wing 4+ (60 pieces, €19.99)
75298 Tauntaun & AT-AT Microfighter (205 pieces, €19.99)
75302 Imperial Shuttle (660 pieces, €79.99)
75303 Ultimate Collector Series (??? pieces, €???)
75304 18+ Helmet Series: Darth Vader (834 pieces, €69.99)
75305 18+ Helmet Series: Scout Trooper (471 pieces, €49.99)
75306 18+ Helmet Series: Imperial Probe Droid (683 pieces, €69.99)
75307 18+ Helmet Series: ??? (??? pieces, €69.99)

 

This is an exhaustive list though since we can still expect plenty of new information to come in as we approach the last quarter of this year. However, since LEGO is quite mum about these things, for now, I highly suggest that we consider all of these things for the rumors that they really are for the time being. Unless we hear LEGO’s official press release and product reveal regarding its upcoming LEGO sets, then let’s take this piece of news with a healthy amount of salt.

New LEGO Star Wars Luke Skywalker with Blue Milk (30625) Polybag Revealed

While we are still waiting for the arrival of the biggest LEGO Star Wars video game as of to date, Warner Bros and TT Games are throwing in a LEGO freebie to sweeten the deal. Those who will be purchasing the Deluxe Edition of the LEGO Star Wars The Skywalker Saga video game will be treated with a new and exclusive minifigure – the LEGO Star Wars Luke Skywalker with Blue Milk (30625) polybag.

The polybag itself features a new minifigure version of Luke Skywalker, albeit based on a younger version of himself with his fave blue milk drink of all time. Thanks to Dutch video game retailer Game Resource, we can have a closer look at what this latest exclusive polybag has to offer. For what it seems, purchasing the Deluxe Edition of the said game will include the base game, a Character Collection Pack that includes six (6) exclusive playable characters, and the LEGO Star Wars Luke Skywalker with Blue Milk minifigure. It is most likely that the polybag itself will also feature a unique unlock code that will let you have this blue milk-drinking version of master Luke exploring the open brick worlds of the game.

If you noticed, this minifig version of Luke Skywalker is not entirely new. Its first appearance was back in 2016 together with the release of the LEGO Star Wars Death Star (75159), and once again this year particularly in three new sets: Obi-Wan’s Hut (75270), this year’s LEGO Star Wars Advent Calendar (75279) and the most recent set in the Master Builder Series, the Mos Eisley Cantina (75290). However, what sets apart this exclusive minifigure is, of course, the unique blue milk mustache print and the milk carton box with a Bantha silhouette. The milk carton box is further accentuated with the inclusion of a white cheese slope piece.

The LEGO Star Wars The Skywalker Saga Deluxe Edition is also currently available for pre-order via Amazon. This latest LEGO video game offering is slated to be finally released on December 31st, after some apparent slip-up regarding initial announcements of its release date. This galaxy-spanning culmination will also available across multiple gaming platforms including the latest ones such as the upcoming Playstation 5 and X Box Series X.

Comic devotees and LEGO Brick fans are in for a treat, as The LEGO Group launches its latest Batman-themed set – available from 21st October from LEGO.com and LEGO Stores.

BILLUND, September 19, 2020: It may not soar to Gotham city, but the LEGO Group’s latest release with Warner Bros. Consumer Products and DC, the LEGO® DC BATMAN™ 1989 Batwing, is sure to transport fans to their most memorable DC Super Hero moments this Batman Day. Fans of Batman and avid builders are in for some serious fun as they embark on their journey to construct the ultimate Super Hero vehicle in the LEGO® DC BATMAN™ collection. 

The new LEGO® 1989 Batwing draws upon the design seen in Tim Burton’s iconic 1989 BATMAN™ film, using the smooth lines and features from the original model to bring an impressive gothic elegance to any LEGO collection. DC and LEGO fans alike can indulge in their passion for the Caped Crusader as they explore all the delightful features of this new set, including a full interior, removable canopy, and posable aerodynamic flaps. To add to the excitement, the construction kit is also dotted with Easter eggs to surprise builders, such as a screen featuring The Joker’s gas balloons and a ‘Bat Engine’ label on the vehicle’s engine – helping to truly transport builders back to 1989 and into the BATMAN universe.  

Once completed, the 2,363-piece set is a real showstopper, measuring over 4” (11cm) high, 20” (52cm) long, and 22” (58cm) wide. The construction set also features a special brick which allows builders to mount and display their model on the wall for added impact, making the LEGO® DC BATMAN™ 1989 set a wonderful addition to a Batman lover’s LEGO collection, joining the previously released LEGO DC BATMAN™ 1989 Batmobile™ to make a dark and dramatic display in any home.

peaking about the details of the new set, LEGO Creative lead Jesper C. Nielsen said: The emblematic set truly takes fans on a journey, as they immerse themselves into Gotham city and get hands-on with the set, using Batman, The Joker™ and Boombox goon minifigures to relive their favorite moments from the film. Fans can even create the infamous scene when The Joker barges in on the Dark Knight and utters his classic words “have you ever danced with the devil in the pale moonlight?”. 

The new LEGO® 1989 Batwing construction set is the latest example of how the LEGO Group aims to inspire builders of all ages to build, rebuild, and get excited by the process of creation. A complex and rewarding build, the LEGO 1989 Batwing construction set allows builders to relax as they escape from the real world and enter the Batman universe. Designed for those aged 18+, the new set will also feature the new stylish packaging designed to reflect the sophisticated nature of the creative process.  

All new products in the LEGO Group’s ranges that appeal to adults will now feature the sleek, minimalistic new design across related packaging, building instructions, exclusive content, and in-store and online store design.

“When I received the challenge to create a LEGO brick-built version of the Child, I knew that I had to get it just right,” says Michael Lee Stockwell, Design Manager, LEGO® Star Wars™. “The goal was to capture the charm, and above all, the cuteness of the character, so we worked meticulously, choosing and placing every brick. We even included authentic details like the gearstick knob – a favorite toy of the Child as seen in the series.”

The construction set comes with an information plaque, which includes the Child’s height and age, and a LEGO® Star Wars™ Minifigure of the Child to complete a charming display.

Here’s Our Tribute to the King: Free Custom LEGO Black Panther Wakanda Statue Building Instructions For Everyone

Last week was a tough one to go through, following the terrible news of the untimely passing of one of MCUs pillars that helped bring to the big screen the mighty character of King T’Challa. And though Chadwick Boseman will be remembered through the many endearing characters in critically acclaimed films such as 42, Marshall, and 21 Bridges, it was in MCU’s Black Panther that he made his mark on Hollywood as one of the most brilliant actors of our time. And as our way of remembering the King, our online storefront The Brick Show Shop, is giving away a complete set of building instructions for a custom LEGO Black Panther Wakanda Statue.

Designed by our very own Tyler Clites (winner of this year’s US LEGO Masters TV Show over at Fox), this custom LEGO Black Panther Wakanda Statue requires 371 LEGO pieces that you can find from your LEGO collection or ordered via Bricklink. Aside from the building instructions, you’ll also get a printable parts list and an .IO file that you can upload over at Bricklink for easy purchasing of parts.

The nice thing about this is that you can get this set of free building instructions without making any qualifying purchases over at our shop. This is our way of showing appreciation to Boseman and the cinematic legacy that he left behind.

As a side note and in case you’ve missed it, Build Better Bricks also has for sale a set of building instructions for you to create a custom LEGO Black Panther Bust. I love to see this one standing side by side together with the Wakanda Statue.

Build Better Bricks is also offering this set of high-quality building instructions for a custom LEGO Black Panther Bust.

We may never see the likes of Chadwick Boseman any more, but he will always be remembered in the LEGO creations that we will build in honor of his work and legacy. Thanks, King, and live on forever!

Here’s a Glimpse of the New LEGO Star Wars Mos Eisley Cantina (75290)

Here’s another surprising reveal. According to a report published by fellow LEGO fansite StoneWars, it looks like we will be having another LEGO Star Wars set that you’ll most likely add to your collection. The LEGO Star Wars Mos Eisley Cantina (75290) is by far the largest LEGO rendition of this infamous hangout in Star Wars lore, and we now have our first glimpse of what this upcoming set has to offer.

The surprising news of the new Cantina came from an unlikely source – from the LEGO South Korea Facebook page as you can see from the promotional flyer below. The post has been taken down already so it’s most likely that someone from LEGO South Korea’s social media team was a bit too excited to press that share button ahead of the set’s embargo.

This is not the most ideal image that we want to see from this set but still, we can somehow figure out what we can expect from it. This LEGO Star Wars 18+ set comes in at 3,187 pieces and is expected to retail for 349.99 Euros once it is released on September 16. It consists of several builds that make the Cantina one of the most memorable hangouts on this side of the galaxy. We can see a V-35 Courier and Ubrikkian 9000 Landspeeders, Chalmun’s Spaceport, a re-release of a Dewback figure, and take note of this – an impressive collection of 21 minifigure characters:

  • Luke Skywalker
  • Obi-Wan Kenobi
  • Han Solo
  • Chewbacca
  • C-3PO
  • R2-D2

Though this is not the first time that LEGO had released a buildable version of the Mos Eisley Cantina (this is the LEGO’s 4th version by the way), this is certainly the largest of its kind as of to date. The LEGO Star Wars Mos Eisley Cantina (75290) also shares some brick DNA with 2018’s Betrayal at Cloud City (75222) previously packaged under the Master Builders subtheme. Though there were mixed reactions from LEGO fans about this set, the latest revelation about the Cantina’s return which is intended for 18+ builders and the more discerning LEGO collector, is in fact, a welcomed development.

Since the reported release of Cantina is scheduled for September 16, we will be on the lookout for its official announcement that may happen anytime soon. Are you excited about the LEGO Star Wars Mos Eisley Cantina (75290)? What do you think makes this set a must-have? Tell us what you think in the comments below.

Earn Extra LEGO VIP Points By Testing Your Wizarding Knowledge

In case you missed it, the LEGO VIP Rewards Center has a neat little incentive for LEGO Harry Potter fans. You can get extra LEGO VIP points by taking a short (but a bit challenging) quiz that tests how deep you are in the Wizarding World of Harry Potter. Here are the details as posted over at the Rewards Center.

How Much Do You Know About Harry?

Take our VIP Quiz now. Test your knowledge about the world of Harry Potter and you could earn 150 bonus VIP points (the same amount that you would win when you catch the Golden Snitch).

There’s a total of 9 questions to be answered and you need to get at least 6 of them correctly to earn those sweet, extra LEGO VIP points. I’m not really into the Wizarding World of Harry Potter being an average fan that I am, so I have to conjure some good ‘ol search magic to answer most of them. Additionally, all of these questions have something to do with the iconic Diagon Alley which is now rendered once again in LEGO bricks in the form of the recently released LEGO Harry Potter Diagon Alley (75978).

The nice thing about this particular LEGO VIP quiz is that you get to know the correct answer and the results stay listed in your account as long as the promo is up. Just for fun, I’m sharing the answers here in alphabetical order so you just try to figure which answer goes to what question.

  • Five
  • Floo powder
  • Flourish and Blotts
  • Knockturn Alley
  • Owl
  • Quality Quidditch Supplies
  • The Daily Prophet
  • Weasleys’ Wizard Wheezes
  • Wiseacre’s

The 150 extra LEGO VIP points may not sound that much, but still, its a great way to stack up on those points without making any LEGO purchase. There’s no particular mention of any deadline, but it will be wise to take this fun little quiz as soon as you can.

The LEGO Harry Potter Diagon Alley (75978) is now available at LEGO Shop@Home.

New LEGO Star Wars The Child (75318) Set Spotted in Luxembourg

Though this piece of news is not entirely new, I’m pretty sure that a lot of LEGO Star Wars fans out there will be looking forward to this. Thanks to an eagle-eyed fan who happened to be at the right place at the right time in a shop somewhere in Luxembourg, we now have our very first image and confirmation of the LEGO Star Wars The Child (75318).

The image, which was shared by a reader of German LEGO fan site StoneWars, shows the box of the brick-built Baby Yoda on display at The Cactus shop. Probably another case of a third-party retailer not being mindful of embargo dates, the LEGO Star Wars The Child (75318) can be seen on display alongside its wiser counterpart, the LEGO Star Wars Yoda (75255).

Based on the listing, we can figure out that the said brick statue of Baby Yoda will be retailing for 99.99 Euros (or probably around $79.99) and will be available on November 1 just in time for the holidays. Plus, the timing couldn’t be better considering that Season Two of the hit Disney+ series The Mandalorian will be arriving by October 30 as well.

Unfortunately, we do not have info as of the moment regarding the piece count on this set but we can surmise that The LEGO Star Wars The Child will stand at 19 centimeters tall or 7.5 inches, and 21 centimeters wide (8.3 inches). It features a tiltable head and left hand, and posable ears. Both of its arms are fixed and this is understandable considering how the designers opted to emphasize the fine details of Baby Yoda’s garb. Its left hand also features the silver orb that he playfully took from The Mandalorian’s ship. The set comes with its identification plate reminiscent of LEGO Star Wars UCS sets, plus a Baby Yoda minifigure found only in the LEGO Star Wars The Razor Crest (75292).

Though I do not find myself liking that brick version of Yoda in set 75225, I have to say that LEGO designers did a great job in rendering his younger kin. I love how its tilting head and movable ears can immediately convey its emotion, which makes the character endearing to any Star Wars fan.

So what do you think of this LEGO version of The Child? Will this be on your  must-have LEGO shopping list? Share your thoughts in the comments below, and or the latest LEGO Star Wars sets be sure to visit LEGO Shop@Home.
