Upcoming LEGO Star Wars 2020 Sets Confirmed By Online Retailer

After giving us a peek at things to come during this year’s San Diego Comic-Con, Swiss online toy retailer Meinspielzeug has listed what seems to be our first batch of upcoming LEGO Star Wars 2020 sets. Images are still missing of course since its understandable that they may still be under an embargo. However, since we’re just essentially a couple of months away before their January 2020 release, some retailers are now gradually updating their databases.

If you also recall back in August, there was a rumor going around that LEGO might be releasing another set similar to that of the LEGO Star Wars busts that were initially offered as exclusives. As it seems, builds that follow the genre of such sets like the LEGO Star Wars Darth Vader Bust (75227) which was released as a Target 2019 Star Wars Celebration exclusive, and the LEGO Star Wars Sith Trooper Bust (77901) exclusively offered to SDCC 2019 attendees, will now be offered mainstream. Meinspielzeug has now confirmed this, together with a handful of other upcoming LEGO Star Wars sets that you might want to keep tabs with and save on for your post-Christmas LEGO purchases.

Here are some of the listings for these LEGO Star Wars 2020 sets as confirmed on Meinspielzeug’s website. As of now, only the set’s piece count and retail price (in Swiss Francs) are posted, but I guess this will suffice in giving us an early impression of how these sets will measure up.

What I also find interesting is the fact that both the Stormtrooper and Boba Fett Busts seem to have almost twice the number of pieces as compared to its predecessors, giving the impression that they are considerably larger.

Other interesting sets that I’m looking forward to is the Mandalorian Battle Pack and that TIE Dagger. Both are new sets under the LEGO Star Wars theme considering that the former is a direct tie-in under the Disney+ Mandalorian series (which is about to launch in a few hours), while the latter is a new Star Wars vehicle that we will see in the big screen when Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker debuts next month.

So what do you think of this list of new LEGO Star Wars 2020 sets? Which of them are you looking forward to? Comment down below to share your thoughts.

LEGO Batman 1989 Batmobile – Limited Edition (40433) Official Images Released

After the first public appearance of the next LEGO direct-to-consumer set in the form of the LEGO Batman 1989 Batmobile (76139), it looks like LEGO is throwing a freebie as a form of incentive for those who are planning to purchase this. Promobricks has recently shared several official images of the LEGO Batman 1989 Batmobile – Limited Edition (40433) set that may come as our next promotional or gift-with-purchase set.

LEGO Batman 1989 Batmobile - Limited Edition (40433)

We don’t know yet the terms and conditions on how to obtain this set, but from the looks of these images, I think most will agree that it is something equally impressive to have like its larger counterpart. The LEGO Batman 1989 Batmobile – Limited Edition (40433) has a certain premium feel to it, offered as a typical box set, and has a flair of exclusivity. Based on the set’s schematics at the back, this exclusive gift comes in at 366 pieces and proudly measures in at 29 centimeters long – almost a foot long or at 11 1/2 inches. It is quite impressive for a freebie considering how it looks. It also comes with its own fact sheet that can be displayed alongside the set, giving it a UCS kind of vibe. It simply looks gorgeous very much the same as its bigger brother.

We can expect more details to be made available about this collectible set by next week once LEGO gives its official press release about the LEGO Batman 1989 Batmobile (76139), so stay tuned.

LEGO Batman 1989 Batmobile (76139) Spotted at the LEGO Store in Billund Airport

For those who are in the know on the latest LEGO scoop, you might already be aware that this next D2C set is slated to be announced anytime soon. However, it looks like LEGO fans in Denmark, or more specifically for those who will be arriving or departing from Denmark’s Billund Airport, might catch a glimpse of the highly anticipated LEGO Batman 1989 Batmobile (76139). Instagram user Dylan Chow managed to obtain our very first in-store image of this direct-to-consumer set. Take a look.

Since this image was obtained from an actual LEGO set prominently displayed from a LEGO brand store, then sharing this with you is all fair game. Based on the images shared by Dylan, we can see that this set will weigh in at 3,306 pieces, with a height of 5.8 inches and a length of almost 2 feet. That is one head-turning, display-worthy D2C set if you ask me! It will make a cool LEGO display set alongside LEGO’s upcoming DC Collectible Minifigures (71026) series.

LEGO Batman 1989 Batmobile

LEGO is staying true with the 80s vibe on this one with the inclusion of three minifigures together with this set: we have Vicki Vale played by actress Kim Basinger, Joker as brought to life by Jack Nicholson, and a radically different minifigure iteration of Batman (played by Michael Keaton in the film). What LEGO Batman fans will quickly notice is that this latest minifig version of the Dark Knight is significantly different in such a way that both his cowl and cape are made of a single piece of soft plastic. This is a clear departure from previous LEGO variants where LEGO opted to include a piece of fabric for its minifigure capes. I feel its a proper design choice for our latest LEGO Batman and gives these minifigures a more premium feel. I guess the set’s designers would like to stay true and consistent with the original designs of the 1989 film. This is one of the things that I truly love with LEGO – the extra mile that they go through to give us those subtle, but very important details.

The LEGO Batman 1989 Batmobile (76139) is expected to retail in the US somewhere between $249.99 to $299.99 USD given its size and piece count. We don’t have any info at this time regarding its exact release date, but considering how the set has officially appeared at this particular LEGO store may suggest that its official release will be anytime soon. So be sure to stay tuned here on our Brick Show blog site for more updates. Share us what you think about this set in the comments below.

With special thanks to Promobricks for additional info.

These LEGO Trolls Minifigures Are Quite a Colorful Bunch

After an initial teaser on what to expect from the upcoming LEGO Trolls theme, the LEGO Group has now revealed its line-up of new LEGO Trolls minifigures as part of its partnership with Dreamworks’ animated sequel, Trolls World Tour. The reveal was made via LEGO’s social media channels, and I have to say that they are quite a colorful bunch.

I’m not really a fan of the first Trolls movie but seeing how LEGO took the time in coming up with a pretty decent collection of new LEGO Trolls minifigures for the film’s upcoming sequel, gives this series a character of its own. These new minifigs are very much kaleidoscopic in form as their tie-in animated characters.

LEGO Trolls Minifigures

Though these minifigs may not sport the iconic Trolls hairdo that made them popular in the 80s, the way LEGO came up with these new minifig heads turned out to be pretty impressive. There are plenty of new minifigure parts included in this theme and based on this first look, we can assume that there maybe 2 or 3 LEGO Trolls sets slated for next year. As of now, LEGO gave us a glimpse at 8 minifigure versions of the characters from the film and hopefully, we’ll see more LEGO Trolls characters as we close the last quarter of the year.

There is no official word yet on when the upcoming LEGO Trolls sets will be released, but given that the Trolls World Tour animated movie is slated for a theatrical release on April 17, 2020, we can somehow expect that these will be a part of LEGO’s January 2020 releases.

Front row from left to right: Tiny Diamond, Guy Diamond, Biggie and his pet worm Mr. Dinkles.
Front: Cooper, a giraffe-like troll that walks on all fours. From the looks of it, he comes in as a single piece minifigure save for the green headpiece.
Front: Dickory, a country troll that comes with four legs similar to a lower body of a centaur. His hat and lower body seem to be new minifigure pieces as well.
A yet to be named, LEGO Techo Troll minifigure.

And in case you somehow missed it, check out the latest trailer for the Trolls World Tour film, and be sure to stay tuned here on The Brick Show for more updates on this new LEGO theme.

A First Glimpse at the LEGO Trolls Minifigures

Back in May, it was announced that Dreamworks have entered into a partnership with LEGO as part of its efforts to boost marketing for its upcoming film Trolls World Tour,  as a sequel for its 2016 self-titled movie Trolls. The said sequel is slated to arrive in theaters in April next year, but it seems that early as now, we are catching a glimpse of how these LEGO Trolls minifigures will turn out.

Thanks once more to FalconFan1414 over on Instagram, we can now partially see how these tie-in minifigs will look like. Actually, the image below can be seen from the pages of the upcoming November 2019 issue of the LEGO Life Magazine, where you can see the silhouettes of the minifigure versions of Branch, Poppy and Queen Barb as seen in the film.

Though the image that FalconFan1414 shared wasn’t that clear, one can immediately notice that this series of minifigs is a first of its kind. When this new LEGO theme was announced earlier this year, I was actually hoping for new minifig heads that may, well, feature some trolls’ hair that made the toy series popular back in the 80s. I know now that its a longshot, and that the process of adding synthetic hair on minifigure headpieces is perhaps technically difficult and close to impossible.

Nevertheless, these LEGO Trolls minifigures share a common feature of having oversized heads for that matter, and it looks like the headpieces are made of a single head mold. Such feature accounts for the disproportionally large heads of these minifigs, given that they also come with short legs. You may not be a fan of such minifigure designs, but I have to admire the color scheme on these minifig characters including the dual printing that comes with their arms.

We don’t have an exact date on when these LEGO Trolls sets will be out, but I guess its safe to say that official word will be out sometime in January 2020 where LEGO traditionally releases a huge update on its upcoming sets for the first half of the year. Trolls World Tour is scheduled for a theatrical release in the US on April 17, 2020.

Thanks again to FalconFan1414 for the tip.

More Info On The LEGO Marvel Avengers Hulk Helicopter Rescue (76144)

If you recall back in June, it was announced that another LEGO Marvel Superheroes set inspired by the MCU’s Avengers: Endgame will be available for fans just in time for the holidays. The set was eventually put on display during this year’s San Diego Comic Con in July, where SDCC annual pilgrims get to see in advance what LEGO has in the works for its upcoming sets. The press release also saw a handful of official images of the LEGO Marvel Avengers Hulk Helicopter Rescue (76144) set at that time, but it was obvious for any dotting LEGO Marvel fan that the announcement seems to be lacking. LEGO has not yet revealed the set’s official box art and product description that will further give details on what to expect from this new LEGO Marvel set.

Thanks to French online store Rakuten, we now have our first look at the Hulk Helicopter Rescue (76144) which features among other things, the quantum realm, bigfig version of Professor Hulk.

As you may have noticed by now, LEGO has a penchant for spreading out key minifigure characters across many sets in a particular theme. The clear take away from this set is this newer bigfig version of the Hulk wielding Tony Stark’s version of the Infinity Gauntlet, alongside a minifig counterpart of Pepper Potts’ Rescue Armor. Another interesting feature of the Hulk Helicopter Rescue (76144) is the fact that the 4 Infinity Stones that comes with it compliments with what Thanos has in another LEGO set which is the Avengers Compound Battle (76131).

Like other LEGO Avengers: Endgame sets, the Hulk Helicopter Rescue (76144) does not really have a reputation for being movie accurate. I’ve watched Endgame countless times already and that Avengers helicopter is nowhere to be seen in the film. Much so having Professor Hulk mounted on the helicopter and being dropped in battle as the following product description suggests. Please pardon the rather loose Google translation for this one.

The LEGO Marvel Avengers Hulk Helicopter Rescue (76144) comes in at 482 pieces and will retail for $60 USD starting November 25. Special thanks to Brick Heroes for the heads up.

LEGO Marvel Avengers Hulk Helicopter Rescue (76144)

Team up with the Avengers for an epic aerial battle against the Chitauri! Jump aboard the helicopter with the Rescue Armor and fire at the mighty Leviathan with triple tenon guns. Dodge glider missiles from Chitauri. Surprise the enemy by dropping the mighty Hulk into battle. Then attack using the Rescue Armor’s power explosions and Black Widow’s batons.

• Rescue, aka Pepper Potts, has explosions of power for a game full of action, and Hulk can be equipped with his Infinity Gauntlet with 4 Infinity Collectible Stones- the other gems of the Infinity are included in the Avengers HQ Attack Set (76131).

• With its amazing action figures and fun building templates, this popular 482-piece toy is great for playing alone or with others and is a great gift for kids ages 8 and up.

• The helicopter to be built is more than 11 cm high, 25 cm long and 19 cm wide. All models and characters can be easily combined with other LEGO Marvel sets for even more action and play in the superhero universe.

Create Your Own LEGO Star Wars Luke Skywalker Timeline With These Building Instructions

Triple Force Friday now comes to a close, and if you were one of those who took part in this Saturday’s LEGO Star Wars Luke Skywalker Timeline Make and Take building event, then its a nice piece of memorabilia to have around to cap off your LEGO Force Friday experience.

However, even if you were not around to participate in this event, then you’ll be glad to know that Brickset managed to share the building instructions to recreate this Make and Take freebie. Check out the following images below.

LEGO Star Wars Luke Skywalker Timeline LEGO Star Wars Luke Skywalker Timeline LEGO Star Wars Luke Skywalker Timeline

Coming in at 87 pieces, there seems to be no exclusive LEGO piece needed to build this set. It’s kind of a basic build actually, and I understand why not all LEGO Star Wars fans are into this kind of thing. But the thought behind this particular build is what makes it more interesting. It’s nice of the designer behind this make-and-take build to feature in using as few as 80+ LEGO pieces the entire Luke Skywalker Timeline as we see him in the events of Episode IV to VIII. Though made up of basic bricks, each rendition of the iconic Star Wars Jedi is easily recognizable. I like how old man Luke was nicely rendered with all the gray beard, hair and sand yellow bricks to represent his current garb as seen in The Last Jedi. Here’s a closer look at the parts list if you wish to see the parts that were used to build this LEGO Star Wars Luke Skywalker Timeline.

If you want to recreate this unique, Triple Force Friday make-and-take build, then I suggest that you go through your collection of LEGO bricks and see if you have the necessary pieces to do so. Thanks again to Brickset for sharing these instructions.

LEGO Disney Frozen 2 Olaf’s Traveling Sleigh (40361) Gift-With-Purchase Set Revealed

As you may have known already, the LEGO Disney Frozen 2 sets are currently available at LEGO Shop@Home alongside the release of the new LEGO Star Wars merchandise for Triple Force Friday.  If you’re a LEGO Disney fan, then you’ll be glad to know that LEGO has thrown in a new gift-with-purchase (GWP) set for qualifying purchases of these new LEGO Disney sets. LEGO’s online store has added to its image cache the LEGO Disney Frozen 2 Olaf’s Traveling Sleigh (40361) which you can find below.

Olaf's Traveling Sleigh (40361)

For those familiar with this LEGO Disney subtheme, the first thing that is noticeable about this GWP set is the inclusion of the newer minidoll version of Olaf that only comes in two particular LEGO Disney Frozen 2 sets: Enchanted Tree House (41164) and Anna’s Canoe Expedition (41165). So if you’re a fan of the comical snowman, then having this freebie added to your cart is a great incentive to get this new LEGO Disney sets.

Olaf's Traveling Sleigh (40361) Olaf's Traveling Sleigh (40361) Olaf's Traveling Sleigh (40361)

Olaf’s Traveling Sleigh (40361) comes in at 97 pieces and also includes a mini sleigh, a small buildable Christmas tree and gift, lamp, and a storage box to place Olaf’s skiing accessories.  I don’t see it yet on my shopping cart via LEGO Shop@Home, but since the set’s images have already been added to the online store’s database, then I guess it will just be a matter of time before you see this freebie listed. For now, you may want to delay your purchases a bit if you wish to get this free gift. Word on brick street has it that this free gift will be available from October 7 to 31 or until supplies last so I’ll keep a close eye on this one.

UPDATE: This promo is now currently live at LEGO Shop@Home, confirming our earlier announcement of its availability. You’ll get the Olaf’s Traveling Sleigh (40361) set for qualifying LEGO Disney Frozen purchases worth $50 and above starting today, October 7, until October 20 or when supplies last.
