SDCC ’22 LEGO Panel: Ninjago-es On

San Diego Comic Con 2022 is now behind us, and we congratulate them for pulling it off. It was definitely nice to see plenty of new upcoming media from a wide variety of sources. Of course, we include LEGO among them. Already we got a taste of some LEGO set tie-ins with “Avatar: The Way of Water” for example. But LEGO also has its own original content that’s been consistent hits with kids worldwide. They’ll never let us forget about their “Ninjago” animated series, which has been on for double-digit seasons already. SDCC gave the perfect opportunity to tell fans what’s in store later on.

As reported by The Brick Fan, new info on the continuation of current LEGO Ninjago season surfaced at SDCC22. “Ninjago: Crystalized” started just this past May, with 12 episodes premiered. The rest, according to the LEGO Entertainment panel, will premiere October. In the US, that comes by way of Netflix exclusively. Only Nickelodeon Denmark and Canada’s YTV and Teletoon still carry the series on good old TV channels. The only other hints given on plot points for “Crystalized” involve more screentime for Dareth and Harumi.

But that’s not all. “LEGO Ninjago” animation will not yet end anytime soon. Another season is in the works that’ll premiere in 2023. The series production team can only hint at the next part of the saga being “new” and “different”. That doesn’t mean a reboot however. More info might come to light when next year’s first LEGO Ninjago wave gets teased towards the Holidays. Aside from “Ninjago”, the LEGO panel at SDCC showcased some LEGO Star Wars shorts. They also had “LEGO Masters US” judges Jamie and Amy hype season 3. That one premieres on September 21 at FOX.

Would You Rather Play or Display? Easy. Both. Introducing the LEGO Ideas The Office (21336)!

Well, this next LEGO Ideas set deserves a pretzel. In the tradition of brick-built dioramas of your favorite TV shows such as those from FRIENDS and Seinfeld, comes another LEGO Ideas set fit for all the brick fans of this prime-time Emmy-award-winning comedy series. The LEGO Ideas The Office (21336) set is the brainchild of prolific LEGO fan designer Jaijai Lewis. In fact, this next LEGO Ideas set has gone through a lot of initial disapprovals and reiterations since 2015 until the LEGO Ideas design team gave it the green light during the LEGO Ideas First 2021 Review Stage, alongside the LEGO Ideas Jazz Quartet (21334).  True to the mantra of the sitcom’s lead character and eccentric boss Michael Scott (played by Steve Carell), Jaijai simply “Never, ever, ever gave up”.

LEGO Ideas The Office

The LEGO Ideas The Office (21336) clocks in at 1,164 pieces and comes with an impressive, 15 minifigures of the show’s main cast: Michael Scott, Dwight Schrute, Jim Halpert, Pam Beesly, Ryan Howard, Angela Martin, Oscar Martinez, Kevin Malone, Stanley Hudson, Kelly Kapoor, Phyllis Lapin Vance, Meredith Palmer, Creed Bratton, Toby Flenderson and Darryl Philbin.

More than just being a display set, this LEGO version of the iconic Dunder Mifflin’s Scranton office comes complete with all the accessories that call back to some of the funniest moments in the show. Stapler-filled jello anyone?

The set also features an authentic representation of the Office’s reception area, conference room, and Michael’s office that slides out separately if you want to display it on its own.

The LEGO Ideas The Office is now available for pre-order for $120 and is slated to be released on October 1st, 2o22. Check out the rest of these product images, and click on the following affiliate link below if you wish to be one of the first to pre-order this.

Check Out “LEGO Star Wars Summer Vacation” Full Trailer

At the start of this week, Disney+ and Lucasfilm dropped their first teaser for another LEGO Star Wars TV special. Given that the previous two specials focused on special occasions of the year, this one follows the theme. It wouldn’t be surprising if this one makes for a nice TV special trilogy where LEGO Star Wars is concerned. Anyway, the initial teaser for “LEGO Star Wars Summer Vacation” gave us an initial impression on the expected laughs. The “Star Wars” Twitter page also promised a much longer trailer later on. Now we cover that too.

The Brick Fan tells us that as promised, an official trailer for “LEGO Star Wars Summer Vacation” dropped Tuesday. It replays some key scenes from the short teaser and adds more context to the plot. Long story short, the “Star Wars” sequel trilogy cast are going on vacation. For that short time they hope to celebrate not being hounded by either the Empire or First Order. Perhaps it’s good fortune that Emperor Palpatine and Darth Vader are hitting the beach themselves? Finn among the cast is eager to catch that big break. Now if only Obi-Wan Kenobi’s Force ghost isn’t bugging him too, with the “Hello there” meme and all.

True to form, Lucasfilm was able to get some “Star Wars” alumni to reprise their roles in animated LEGO form. One can easily recognize Anthony Daniels and Billy Dee Williams as C-3PO and Lando Calrissian in the trailer. “Summer Vacation” also stars Kelly Marie Tran, Yvette Nicole Brown and Weird Al Yankovic, who also provides the theme song. Check out “LEGO Star Wars Summer Vacation” when it premieres this coming August 5 on Disney+ streaming.

“LEGO Star Wars Summer Vacation” Special Teased, Coming August on Disney+

For LEGO Star Wars fans and collectors, do you enjoy their animated TV specials? Have you noticed a trend going through the past two specials which aired on Disney+ years prior? Yep, “Holiday Special” (2020) and “Terrifying Tales” (2021) were some sweet LEGO Star Wars lampoons of key annual holidays. And yes, they put the Sequel Trilogy characters front and center, but we digress. Two festive occasions in the later part of the year have been featured in LEGO Star Wars specials. What could be next? As it turns out, we already have a clue.

Brick Fanatics has it that the first teaser for “LEGO Star Wars: Summer Vacation” just dropped on social media. Here we have the clip featured on the official “Star Wars” Twitter page. After some sendups to LEGO Star Wars “Holiday Special” and “Terrifying Tales” we get to the main part. Where the Sequel Trilogy cast previously got the spotlight, this time the franchise representation is more even. Scenes teased include non-Kylo Ben Solo, old Lando Calrissian and Palpatine and Vader. Naturally, the Emperor gets fussy about his wrinkled skin exposed to direct sunlight. Darth Vader looks totally done just putting sunblock on his dark Master.

Lucasfilm and Disney tease a much longer trailer to “LEGO Star Wars: Summer Vacation” this Tuesday, June 21. The special itself will debut on Disney+ streaming this coming August 5. And with that, we’ll give a quick once-over at two more LEGO Star Wars sets revealed last LEGO Con 2022.

LEGO Con 2022 Reveals Partial Schedule

We’re counting down the days now to this year’s LEGO Con. Come Saturday June 18 the event will kick off in Billund, viewable online (at different times per time zone). Expectant LEGO fans can look forward to the reveal of several major set reveals. These particular items have been rumored and hyped for long enough too. But exactly are we in store for this LEGO Con 2022? LEGO’s gladly taken care of that according to Brick Fanatics. Their social media’s been abuzz this week with details for the coming weekend. And we’ll relay them now.

In a virtual con supposed to run two hours long, LEGO Con this year has some big sets to unveil. In apparent order we have LEGO Marvel followed by LEGO Star Wars. The former’s certainly the new Sanctum Sanctorum (76218). After that come the tie-ins for allegedly the finale to LEGO Ninjago. Then we get a break with a virtual studio tour of Wizarding World London for LEGO Harry Potter. LEGO Friends shows its stuff next, with LEGO Minecraft following up. LEGO Super Mario also has new character packs to tease. We’ll also see LEGO tie-ins for “Lightyear” in-depth. Finally there’s the reveal of a new LEGO theme, which may just be LEGO Icons, formerly the Creator Expert line.

One should note that some LEGO social media spoilers weren’t included in their tentative schedule? LEGO Avatar and more 90th Anniversary sets spring to mind. The “LEGO Masters” reality show franchise does get a prominent spot. It’s no surprise given that presenter Melvin Odoom is co-hosting this event. He’ll be joined by Vick Hope and Joel McHale. LEGO Con 2022 will live-stream on YouTube this June 18. London gets it at 5PM, New York at 12PM, and Los Angeles at 9AM.

No New LEGO Ghostbusters Revealed in Ghostbusters Day 2022

In June 8, 1984 Columbia Pictures released a supernatural comedy involving paranormal investigators starting a business to “capture” ghosts. “Ghostbusters” starring Bill Murray, Dan Aykroyd, Ernie Hudson and the late Harold Ramis became a hit. It would lead to a sequel four years later, plus animated series spinoffs, videogames and more media. June 8 became “Ghostbusters Day”, a time when new Ghostbusters stuff usually gets announced amid fan celebration. This year’s edition had some cool announcements like a follow-up to the latest film, 2021’s “Ghostbusters: Afterlife”. Some animated projects were hinted too. But among the reveals, were no LEGO products.

LEGO has ridden the “Ghostbusters” resurgence somewhat by releasing tie-in sets the past few years. But as Brick Fanatics puts it, there wasn’t even a teaser for any new LEGO Ghostbusters thing. This doesn’t necessarily mean that LEGO’s leaving the theme dry a la LEGO Indiana Jones. The latest tie-in, Ecto-1 (10274), was announced in November of 2020. It usually came with a poster for “Afterlife,” although LEGO made no direct tie-ins to it. Still, with new upcoming “Ghostbusters” projects including an animated series and movie, one can only wonder. We might just be surprised.

“LEGO Masters” US Season 3 “Jurassic World” Special Sees Chris Pratt and Blue as Guests

LEGO’s TV media presence goes far beyond just animated adaptations of their hit brick-set themes. They’ve gone into reality programming as well. It began in the UK with “LEGO Masters”, a brick-building competition between two-person building teams. The participating pairs are whittled down by weekly challenges until one team wins the championship trophy. They’ll even get their final “masterpiece” build displayed at LEGO House, Billund. Many international editions of “LEGO Masters” followed the UK show. The US edition began in 2020, with a third season premiering this coming September. But first, a special preview episode got to feature an upcoming blockbuster with LEGO tie-in sets.

By that we mean “Jurassic World: Dominion” from Universal Pictures. This “Jurassic” sequel, premiering June 10, was the focus of a special sneak peek episode of “LEGO Masters” season 3. As told by Brick Fanatics, the special preview, showcasing the S3 contestants, was graced by “Jurassic World” star Chris Pratt.

While promoting the film with show presenter Will Arnett, it becomes clear Pratt wasn’t the only cast member around. The new “LEGO Masters” teams got plenty shocked when raptor Blue (portrayed by suit) took the stage. Also eye-catching were the LEGO Jurassic World tie-ins displayed in front of the hosts.

Season 3 of “LEGO Masters” US actually got delayed from its original May premiere. That would explain the sneak peek episode which aired last Sunday, May 5. At least one other special is expected before the season proper begins September 21 on FOX. “Jurassic World: Dominion”, again, arrives in theaters this coming Friday, June 10.

LEGO Muppets Collectible Minifigures (71033) Officially Listed, Coming May 1

Collectors will never be unexcited by a new batch of LEGO Collectible Minifigures (CMFs). Beyond just populating LEGO play-sets, the minifigs themselves can show lots of character, especially if they’re part of a theme. Case in point, CMF aficionados have been on tenterhooks waiting for the LEGO Muppets Collectible Minifigures (71033). We’ve caught wind of rumors to that effect in October last year. The sweet roster of Muppet characters to be depicted there was too good to pass up. And now, LEGO has definitively confirmed its latest collectible minifigure series with an official product listing.

LEGO.com finally listed the new LEGO The Muppets Minifigures (71033), and “finally” needs to be stressed, given that other stores and online retailers have been offering the batch for weeks now. Such as what we’re offering right now at our storefront, The Brick Show Shop.

And even then, LEGO isn’t “officially” launching the new CMFs until the first of May. It’s up to collectors if they’re willing to wait or not. The LEGO Muppet CMFs look as awesome as advertised, with all those unique Muppet-accurate heads. Check these out.
