LEGO Movie 2 Emmet’s ‘Piece’ Offering (30340) Polybag Spotted in Target

The LEGO Movie 2: The Second Part is only about two months away from its premiere, and already a lot of the big set tie-ins have been revealed in past months. Now, the tie-in polybags are getting their turn on the spotlight, with the recent showings of Mini Master-Building MetalBeard (30528) and Star-Stuck Emmet (30620). Now, there’s one other LEGO Movie 2 set priced as a polybag that’s longlisted on the Eurobricks forum, one with the set number 30340. A reader of LEGO news source The Brick Fan has found the said polybag being sold in Target, and has given its name: Emmet’s ‘Piece’ Offering (30340).

Emmet's 'Piece' Offering (30340)

Coming in at 44 pieces, the pun-worthy Emmet’s ‘Piece’ Offering (30340) is a multicolored brick-built heart, ostensibly made by Emmet, which also comes as a minifig included in this polybag.

As with most LEGO polybag sets, we might expect Emmet’s ‘Piece’ Offering (30340) to be likely priced at $3.99 – the Eurobricks listing being at €2.99 in turn. We hope to eventually get further details on this little set very soon.

The LEGO Movie 2 Star Stuck Emmet (30620) Polybag Revealed!

We now have our second LEGO Movie 2 polybag hot on the heels of the recently revealed Mini Master-Building MetalBeard (30528). Brickset has recently updated its database, and we now get to see the sequel’s second tie-in polybag in the form of the LEGO Movie 2 Star Stuck Emmet (30620) polybag, If you recall from the official trailer, we get to see Sweet Mayhem causing havoc in the already torn down city of Bricksburg in pursuit of Lucy and Emmet. The battle-ready citizens of Bricksburg run for cover as they flee towards the Bat Cave. The moment that Emmet, Lucy and Unikitty finally made their way to Batman’s fortress, one of Sweet Mayhem’s Star Bombs got stuck in between the massive gates of the Bat Cave.

Unfortunately for our heroes, Emmet can’t resist the adorable, seemingly hurt Star Bomb and eventually gave in and opened the gate. Eventually, LEGO managed to capture those huge gates in microscale form with the LEGO Movie 2 Star Stuck Emmet (30620) polybag. Though Emmet is present in almost all upcoming LEGO Movie 2 sets, making it relatively easy to get one, this new polybag a cost-effective way to grab that new Emmet minifigure.

Small as it may seem, this set also features a moveable gate that opens and closes using a gear and wrench piece. It also replicates the massive gates using several sand green Nexo Knights shield pieces and includes two printed tiles that show two alternate expressions of the Star Bomb.

Unlike the Mini Master-Building MetalBeard (30528) polybag which was reported to have been spotted at several Walmart stores, we don’t have any word yet on where to find the Star Stuck Emmet (30620) polybag. We’ll let you know once more news comes in, or feel free to give us a tip if ever you spot one of this. For now, if you haven’t seen the rest of the awesome LEGO Movie 2 sets offered by LEGO, then be sure to head over LEGO Shop@Home to know more about them.

SPOTTED: New LEGO Movie 2 Mini Master-Building MetalBeard (30528) Polybag

It’s getting more and more awesome as we approach the end of this year because it means that a whole new wave of The LEGO Movie 2 sets will be out there for the taking come January 1st. LEGO didn’t hold back on the reveals as it unveiled 19 TLM2 sets just in time before the film debuts in theaters on February 8, 2019. This time around, LEGO is expanding the roster of its TLM2 theme with the introduction of its first polybag. Reportedly spotted at Walmart stores by eagle-eyed LEGO fans, the LEGO Movie 2 Mini Master-Building MetalBeard (30528) polybag has now find its way in eBay,which, thankfully, gives us a better view on what to expect from this polybag.

Based on the following images, this wacky, scaled down version of the sea-faring,battle-hardened pirate MetalBeard looks very much the same as that in the Battle-Ready Batman and MetalBeard (70836).Though smaller in scale, it is interesting to note that even in just 42 pieces,this smaller version of MetalBeard allows you to build him in three distinct modes: a crab-like walker, a trike, and a micro pirate ship. Obviously, these are interchangeable builds and you’ll need three of these polybags to build each of MetalBeard’s modes separately.

There is no doubt that MetalBeard is perhaps the most versatile character in The LEGO Movie 2 universe. 🙂 

Since this has been spotted on Walmart store shelves, it is most likely that this particular polybag is a retailer-specific set. However,it is fair to assume that LEGO still has a couple of TLM2 polybags waiting to be revealed, very much the same as how they did it with the first LEGO Movie.If you recall back in 2014 LEGO released several polybags that are promotional tie-ins directly related to the first TLM film:  The Piece of Resistance (30280), Micro Manager Battle (30281), and Super Secret Police Enforcer (30282).

We’ll find out soon enough, so stay tuned for more updates. Thanks to Justin for the heads-up!

New LEGO xtra Polybag Sea Accessories (40341) Arriving in 2019

Back in June we reported on a unique LEGO polybag series that contained plastic elements to serve as extra props and accessories for existing LEGO sets; that’s the reason perhaps for the line name: LEGO xtra. From roadside fittings to food items to even printed play-mats, the xtra polybags served to enhance the brick-building experience. Now, some months after the last LEGO xtra items were released, we get one new polybag of that line coming soon: the LEGO xtra Sea Accessories (40341). And that polybag, in 24 pieces, captures the essence of the sea, from nature’s living creatures to period historical trinkets to modern gear.

This LEGO xtra set contains a pirate’s parrot, a shark and clam figures (the clam can open and shut). There’s also a chest with doodads that could pass for a buccaneer’s booty. And then there’s the swimmer/diver’s equipment of flippers, harpoon, surfboard, paddle, and more. Here’s the official product description for our reference.

LEGO Friends 2019 Sets Now Has One Polybag Revealed

We’ve had the privilege of sharing with our readers the official pages of the first 2019 sets for the LEGO Friends series quite recently. They included some sweet building and vehicle sets plus character-specific Heart Box kits with the cute minifigures of the circle of girl friends from Heartlake City.

Apparently, those are only the “big” LEGO Friends sets to expect next year; there are also the “small” products to expect from the Heartlake gang. By that we mean LEGO Friends polybags are also on their way, with one already found in advance at a toy store in Bonn, Germany.

This Friends polybag is numbered 30409 and features Emma with her pet cat. The descriptive name for the product hasn’t been discovered yet by German LEGO news source Promo Bricks, but it does feature Emma and her pet riding bumper cars: one minifigure-sized for her, and the other one kitty-sized.

lego-30409-friends-2019_3

For its pricing in Europe, the LEGO Friends polybag 30409 is €3.99 – about the usual to be expected from a polybag of this size. The appearance of this item is proof that perhaps despite being earmarked for a 2019 official release, LEGO fans can have this and other new Friends sets before the year’s end.

LEGO Star Wars Kessel Mine Worker (40299) Minifigure Spotted for Sale at LEGOLAND California

When this month was still rather new, LEGO released on one of its retail partners, Barnes & Noble, a rather uncommon minifigure polybag that ties in to Solo: A Star Wars Story, released just months ago. The LEGO Star Wars Kessel Mine Worker (40299) minifigure is yet another jazzed-up minifig with an accompanying display stand similar to that of the Mud-Trooper Han Solo (40300).

Still, it’s not as if there are Barnes & Noble stores everywhere. Fortunately, LEGO means to save collectors in California the trouble of hunting LEGO Star Wars Kessel Mine Worker (40299) minifigure down by having their LEGOLAND theme park carry it.

Whereas Barnes & Noble has a minimum LEGO purchase threshold in order to get the 40299 polybag free, LEGOLAND California has the Kessel Mine Worker for straight purchase at the same price as the LEGO Star Wars DJ (40298) from The Last Jedi at $2.99 apiece. That is however a tad more expensive than the Barnes & Noble alternative straight purchase price of $1.27 only.

Meanwhile, LEGOLAND California also has the Mud-Trooper Han Solo polybag available for the same minimum purchase requirement as in Shop@Home; that’s $35 in LEGO Star Wars stuff. Visitors to California’s LEGOLAND resort who are searching for these minifigs are in luck for the foreseeable future.

LEGO Christmas Ornament Reindeer Head (5005253) Polybag Revealed

UPDATE: Official images of the LEGO Christmas Ornament Reindeer Head (5005253) has now been uploaded via LEGO’s servers so we can be sure that this will be listed at shop.LEGO.com any time soon.

Tis the season of the year to be seeing the emergence of Holiday-themed LEGO sets indeed. We’ve seen the Advent Calendars and new Winter Village buildings. And thanks to an early Store Calendar release in China we learned of the LEGO Christmas Box (40292) gift set. But wait; there’s more! Corny infomercial line aside, if you took a closer look at the Chinese LEGO Store November Calendar we shared with you previously, you’ll notice a special polybag right next to the image of the micro-scaled LEGO Harry Potter Diagon Alley (40289) set. That’s a new LEGO Christmas Ornament Reindeer Head (5005253) polybag for 2018.

LEGO Christmas Ornament Reindeer Head (5005253)

Yep, for this year LEGO’s offering a hanging ornament for your Christmas tree in the shape of a reindeer’s head (5005253). It’s pretty much a collection of LEGO pieces that would look like a flat deer’s head when put together, along with a printed 1×2 tile that says 2018.

This is likely another promotional item that’ll be given away for every minimum purchase at LEGO Stores or Shop@Home. For now, only China has been known to announce it, but all other major LEGO markets ought to be following suit. Getting this out before Halloween is always a great idea to avoid the Holiday rush.

Rumored 2019 LEGO Star Wars Polybags Celebrate 20 Years of Product Line

In 1999, George Lucas brought out the culmination of his promise to make a back story movie for Star Wars’ most infamous Sith Lord, Darth Vader, with Episode I: The Phantom Menace showing his origin as a Tatooine slave boy in the person of Anakin Skywalker. To coincide with the debut of the first Star Wars prequel, LEGO also released its first licensed theme set, which later became one of its most lucrative line of building sets: LEGO Star Wars. Now that the theme will be celebrating its 20th anniversary next year, we can certainly expect LEGO to highlight this milestone – and intel suggests that one of the ways LEGO will celebrate this is by offering a new line of 2019 LEGO Star Wars polybags.

LEGO insider Sir von Lego via Eurobricks has dropped the names of at least three 2019 LEGO Star Wars polybags that will come out in 2019 as tribute to 20 years of The Phantom Menace and the LEGO Star Wars line itself.

Micro versions of the Naboo Starfighter (30383), Snowspeeder (30384) and Anakin’s Podracer (30461) are expected, their labels and numbers having been corroborated by news source Rebelscum.

Longtime collectors of LEGO Star Wars might recall that the three vehicles to get a polybag version are also among the very first sets released in the original 1999 launch of the LEGO Star Wars product line. Particularly Anakin’s Podracer (7131), Naboo Fighter (7141) and Snowspeeder (7130).

That’s a neat touch, and we can definitely expect more sets to come which we hope to reveal anytime soon.

LEGO Star Wars Kessel Mine Worker (40299) Minifigure Now Available at Barnes & Noble

If a limited edition LEGO minifigure is of the Star Wars line, then there’s a chance that it will be given some extra attention. We’ve already seen this trend over the past year with numerous limited edition LEGO Star Wars minifigures such as the 2017’s R3-M2 (40268) and DJ (40298), and the most recent being Mud-trooper Han Solo (40300) himself. The latter is now available over at Shop@Home for every minimum $35 LEGO purchase, but he’s not the only one and that’s not the only place where it’s going on. And now it looks like it will soon be followed a similar promo offered only at Barnes & Noble: the LEGO Star Wars Kessel Mine Worker (40299).

According to a report by fellow news source,  The Brick Fan, this next exclusive LEGO Star Wars collectible minifigure is currently available as a gift-with-purchase over at Barnes & Noble for a certain minimum amount. To be precise, the Kessel Mine Worker (40299) can be yours to keep for any single receipt, LEGO Star Wars purchase worth $29.95 and above at B & N.

This Barnes & Noble promotion is said to run until October 18. But apparently if you can’t be bothered to by any other LEGO Star Wars sets from them to hit the minimum, then you can apparently buy the Kessel Mine Worker (40299) polybag itself for only $1.27 apiece. What are you waiting for?

LEGO Star Wars Solo Polybags Spotted in Dallas LEGO Brand Store

It’s often a pattern with LEGO product releases that, after they have introduced and made available the large sets – usually vehicle models – that come in boxes, eventually they also bring out micro-build versions of the same sets, packed in polybags. They usually run for a limited period as exclusive on certain retailers then simply disappear. Such is the case, as it seems to be, for the LEGO Star Wars Solo polybags.

However, there seems to be a slim chance in grabbing some these microbuild collectibles now that they were spotted in a  Dallas LEGO brand store by a LEGO Star Wars fan, and was eventually reported by Star Wars insider Rebelscum. If you recall, these LEGO Star Wars Solo polybags were once listed at Walmart’s online portal, but were now flagged as out of stock. These polybags were microbuild versions of their larger LEGO Star Wars counterparts, particularly the Imperial TIE Fighter (75211) and Imperial AT-Hauler (75219).

Both of these above LEGO Star Wars Solo polybags have also gotten their build instructions uploaded on LEGO Customer Service for DIY recreation, but apparently the actual polybag products aren’t yet “retired” as it were. And it looks like both the micro LEGO Star Wars Solo Imperial TIE Fighter (30381) and AT-Hauler (30498) polybags are still available at the said Dallas LEGO Brand Store. As seen in the featured image above, the Solo tie-in polybags are priced at $6, much like its fellows on the shelf.

Meanwhile, a lot of new LEGO Star Wars sets did become available for purchase at branded stores, retailers and online at the start of the month. In terms of polybags, the latest one is the Mud-trooper Han Solo (40300)  minifigure, free for every minimum LEGO purchase of $35 at Shop@Home.
