LEGO Marvel Star-Lord’s Helmet (76251) Arriving in April!

Nope, this is not part of any advanced April Fool’s conspiracy. LEGO has just added another set to its Helmet Collection, and this time, it pays tribute to Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy. Because starting today, you can pre-order your very own LEGO Marvel Star-Lord’s Helmet (76251) over at LEGO’s online shopping portal.

It’s nice to see another Marvel character given the LEGO Helmet treatment. And this time around, Peter Quill’s Star-Lord joins the ranks of Iron Man, Venom, and Carnage to have this particular helmet motif. But what makes this most recent offering stand out is that it also doubles as a pencil pot. I appreciate how LEGO designers opted to include this functionality since it’s not just a centerpiece display but also serves a particular purpose. I will certainly like to have this on my desk.

The LEGO Marvel Star-Lord’s Helmet (76251) comes at 602 pieces and retails for $79.99. You can pre-order this now at LEGO.com, with a release date of April 1st. Check out the rest of its product details, and if you want, you can also use our affiliate link below to pre-order this set.

More LEGO BrickHeadz Disney Sets Coming This March

It looks like we can expect more Disney-inspired BrickHeadz sets anytime soon. Following the reveal of the LEGO BrickHeadz Disney 100th Celebration (40622) set earlier this month, LEGO.com has been updated revealing three more LEGO BrickHeadz Disney sets that will be available starting March 2023.

This next wave of LEGO BrickHeadz Disney sets takes inspiration from some of the most memorable characters that grew up with over the years. Right off the bat, I am very much excited to see my favorite Pixar robot Wall-E having another LEGO set dedicated to his name aside from his LEGO Ideas Wall-E (21303) back in 2015. I also love how Cruella De Vil and Maleficent turned out in their BrickHeadz form considering the relative complexity of their designs. The accessories that also come with these sets are pretty impressive as well. I appreciate the gesture of including several accessories like Merida’s bow and quiver, and Wall-E’s toolbox.

These LEGO BrickHeadz Disney sets are scheduled to be released on March 1, similar to the latest LEGO Technic and Star Wars Helmets as well. While waiting, you can add this LEGO BrickHeadz trio by checking out their respective affiliate links below.

LEGO DOTS Hedwig Pencil Holder (41809) Revealed!

Though the LEGO DOTS theme is, unfortunately, ending, there are still some things to look forward to for the fans of the theme. As revealed earlier, we can expect a new set that tie-ins with the Wizarding World of Harry Potter – the first now being the LEGO DOTS Hedwig Pencil Holder (41809).

The reveal came by way of another LEGO building instructions entry at LEGO’s customer service portal. Details are scant as of now since this latest LEGO DOTS Hedwig set is not yet accessible via LEGO.com. But from the looks of it, we have the iconic white owl rendered in bricks and pieces, given with a functional look.

LEGO DOTS Hedwig

This set is expected to clock in at 518 pieces and will retail for around 19 Euros or  $20. It s also expected to be one of the three LEGO DOTS that is dedicated to the Harry Potter licensed theme. And given that it has already made an appearance via LEGO’s website it may suggest that an official reveal might soon be on the way.

I’ll update this post once more info comes in. Thanks to Hoth Bricks for the heads-up.

More LEGO Star Wars Helmets Coming in March 2023!

In case you missed it, LEGO.com has launched its latest addition to its LEGO Star Wars Helmets series to celebrate 20 years of the Star Wars Clone Wars era. And just in time for their physical debut at this year’s Nuremberg Toy Fair from February 1 to 6, 2023, we can now catch a glimpse of this latest subtheme offering.

This latest addition to the LEGO Star Wars Helmet Collection takes inspiration from the iconic characters of the Grand Army, particularly Captain Rex and Clone Commander Cody. We first saw the rise of the Clone army in the event of Star Wars Episode 2: Attack of the Clones and later during the events of the animated spin-off series The Clone Wars.

We also see another well-known get-up this time from the costume worn by Princess Leia in Star Wars: Return of the Jedi. The famous bounty hunter disguise was worn by the Rebel Alliance leader as they infiltrated Jabba the Hut’s lair. This brick-built model also serves as another milestone as the Star Wars fandom celebrates the 40th anniversary of the film.

These LEGO Star Wars Helmets are scheduled to be released on March 1, 2023, with the option to pre-order for $70. Check out the official descriptions and images of these collectibles below. And you may also place your pre-0rder via these affiliate links.

LEGO Ideas Update: First Thirteen Qualifiers for the First LEGO Ideas 2023 Review Stage

Now that the LEGO Ideas Third 2022 Review Stage has been wrapped up, we are now seeing the initial batch of product ideas that managed to gather that needed 10K support to be included in the First 2023 LEGO Ideas Review Stage. Here’s a look at some of the product ideas that may turn out to be the next official LEGO Ideas set.

Right off the bat, I have to say that I am personally cheering for Ashnflash’s Shrek’s Swamp – 20th Anniversary set and the Retro Comic Store by LEGOverwatch. Ashnflash LEGO Ideas concept was an overnight success considering that an official LEGO set inspired by Dreamwork’s iconic green ogre can potentially become a tie-in set to celebrate this 2oth anniversary milestone. The recent box office success of the Shrek spin-off Puss in Boots: The Last Wish also catapulted this proposed set to 10K stardom.

Another product idea that I hope to see become a reality is the Retro Comic Store. It will be a great addition to any LEGO City MOC and other LEGO modular sets. It is also cool to see some vintage comic book titles rendered into printed LEGO titles, similar to our custom LEGO 2×2 printed tiles that we offer at our official storefront.

In any case, I hope for the success of all these product ideas as they enter this year’s LEGO Ideas First 2023 Review Stage. In no particular order, here are the initial batch of this year’s LEGO Ideas qualifiers. Click on their respective links below to learn more about these potential LEGO Ideas sets.

Confirmed: LEGO Indiana Jones Will Make a Come Back This April 2023

We’re still months away before we see the return of one of the greatest film heroes of all time on the big screen. But as early as now, it seems that we’ll be seeing LEGO renditions of the great Dr. Henry Walton Jones Jr. any time soon. Irish toy store Smyth Toys has just confirmed that a LEGO Indiana Jones will arrive in April this year.

Shared by Max Bornicke from LEGO fan site Promobricks, the reveal came by way of a LEGO catalog made available at a Smyth Toys store. There have been several rumors as early as the first half of 2022 that the popular LEGO theme is making a comeback in line with the release of the latest film in the franchise, Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny. In case you missed it, here’s the official trailer.

Since LEGO created tie-in sets for the franchise back in 2008, the theme managed to create 18 sets (including a polybag and an SDCC exclusive) spanning all four films (Raiders of the Lost Ark, The Temple of Doom, The Last Crusade, and Kingdom of the Crystal Skull). And after almost 15 years, we will see this LEGO theme revived for fans of the LEGO theme.

Max was kind enough to show a portion of this announcement via the LEGO catalog as you see below.

The April launch might be a regional exclusive since Promobricks reports that retailers from other countries mentioned a June 2023 release from their side. This is expected since the tie-in film will have a theatrical release on June 30, 2023. We just have to wait and see what LEGO has in store until then. In the meantime, be sure to keep in touch and bookmark our website for future announcements about these upcoming LEGO Indiana Jones sets.

From the Rumor Mill: LEGO 100 Years of Disney Collectible Minifigures (71038) May Include 18 Characters

Disney will mark its 100th anniversary this 2023 and LEGO is sharing in the festivities by launching several LEGO Disney tie-in sets. And this included the much-anticipated LEGO 100 Years of Disney Collectible Minifigures (71038).

While the recently released LEGO CMF Series 24 (71037) still enjoys a lot of attention, LEGO fans and completionists are now setting their eyes on the next series expected to be released in May. And rumors have it that 18 unforgettable Disney characters will grace the upcoming LEGO 100 Years of Disney Collectible Minifigures. According to the Back 2 Brick podcast as reported by Promobricks, this upcoming series will feature the following Disney characters in their minifigure versions.

Oswald the Lucky Rabbit (from classic Disney shorts)

 

Pinocchio with a fish bowl (from Pinocchio, 1940)

 

Jiminy Cricket with Umbrella (from Pinocchio, 1940)

 

Sorcerer Mickey with Bucket and Mop (from Fantasia, 1940)

 

Princess Tiana with printed 2×3 tile (from Princess and the Frog, 2009)

 

Dr. Facilier with printed 1×2 tile and walking stick (from Princess and the Frog, 2009)

 

Queen of Hearts (from Alice in Wonderland, 1951)

 

Princess Aurora with owl figure (from Sleeping Beauty, 1959)

 

Mulan with Cri-Kee (from Mulan, 1998 )

 

Ernesto de la Cruz with Guitar (from Coco, 2017)

 

Miguel Rivera with Guitar and Dante the dog (from Coco, 2017)

 

Pocahontas with 1×1 round tile with compass print (from Pocahontas, 1995)

 

Cruella de Vil with Dalmatian (from 101 Dalmatians, 1961)

 

Robin Hood with Bow (from Robin Hood, 1973)

 

Prince John with Bag (from Robin Hood, 1973)

 

Stitch with four arms and ray guns (from Lilo and Stitch, 2002)

 

Baymax with red hoverboard (from Big Hero Six, 2014)

 

Evil Queen with Magic Mirror (from Snow White, 1937)

 

This is a very impressive list if I may say since it’s not an easy feat to select which characters will get the LEGO minifigure treatment. Though I was hoping as well to see an official Snow White minifigure thrown in in this series, considering that LEGO has already released the classic Disney Princess’ Duplo and minidoll iterations.

The four-armed Stitch is number 1 on my list being a fan of Experiment 626 myself. Oswald the Lucky Rabbit is probably next considering the influence of the iconic animated character on Disney’s later characters.

So what do you think of this rumored LEGO 100 Years of Disney Collectible Minifigures? Do you think there are other characters that should have been included? Let me know in the comments below.

With more information from the Brickfinder.

What LEGO Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania Minifigures Do You Want to See?

The second trailer of MCU’s initial Phase 5 film has been released with plenty of details that hint at the challenges awaiting our quantum heroes.  We’re still over a month from its theatrical release, and LEGO seems to be holding the lid pretty tight on its upcoming LEGO Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania tie-in sets. In case you missed it, here’s the film’s most recent trailer:

There’s plenty to unpack in this latest trailer, with Marvel Studios providing us with more details on the impending struggle between Kang and Scott Lang’s Ant-Man, and the motivation behind their actions that will propel the MCU further into its Multiversal Saga. We also get a better look at some of the film’s main characters and potential LEGO Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania minifigures that may go along with it. LEGO usually reveals any of its movie tie-ins a month or two before the film’s release. But Phase 5’s debut film might prove to be an exception, considering how massive and profound Quantumania will be for the future of the MCU. So we’re probably looking at a release date of its official LEGO set sometime toward the end of this month.

Historically, the last two previous Ant-Man films each got one LEGO Marvel Super Heroes set. But with last year’s MCU films receiving 2-3 LEGO tie-in sets, and considering that Quantumania is the final solo act of our tiny Avenger, then it’s not a longshot to think that we might receive more than 1 LEGO set for this latest MCU offering.

While waiting for its official press release, here’s my take on some of the LEGO Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania minifigures that LEGO may reveal anytime soon.

Scott and Cassie Lang, and Hope Van Dyne

This is a no-brainer and the reason why I believe that there could be more than one LEGO Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania set that will be revealed soon. I’m quite positive that Scott, Cassie, and Hope’s minifigures will be included in the roster, but they will not be included in one set. It has been LEGO’s strategy with licensed minifigure characters (especially in the case of Marvel and DC) to distribute them across sets to maximize the sales of the theme. I also expect to see a new design for Ant-Man and Wasp, while collectors will undoubtedly look forward to that purple minifigure iteration of Cassie.

Kang

And no LEGO Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania set will be complete without villainous Kang the Conqueror. Marvel Studios did an excellent job of rendering Jonathan Major’s Kang the Conqueror on the big screen. It is also fantastic to have our first minifigure version of him with and without his iconic helmet and glowing blue face shield.

MODOK

MODOK (Mental Organism Designed Only for Killing) has been around in LEGO form since 2014 with Avengers: Hulk Smash (76018) and Avengers Helicarrier (76153). And it will be great to see a third minifigure version of this superpowered cybernetic bighead. I definitely prefer the single-piece version of his minifigure, as seen in Avengers: Hulk Smash, rather than a printed half-circular wall element for his face. The only question is if LEGO will also include a battle-ready version of him, complete with the gold armor we saw from the trailer.

Quantum Foot Soldiers

Mysterio’s minifigure version, as seen in LEGO Marvel Superheroes Spider-Man vs Mysterio’s Drone Attack (76184) from 2021.

I strongly feel that Kang’s henchmen will also get the minifigure treatment and be included in an official LEGO set. In case you noticed, these faceless foot soldiers were also placed front and center in the newest poster of the film. Unlike MCU’s previous gnarly-looking henchmen (such as the Chitauri), these quantum foot soldiers are more reminiscent of how Mysterio’s minifigure looks like.

I bet these upcoming LEGO Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania sets will feature Kang’s time-ship and another one that might focus on that scene where MODOK is included. I guess we have to wait for the next couple of weeks until we finally see what LEGO has in the works.
