It looks like the hit Disney+ series will get another LEGO Star Wars set dedicated to its name. Following the latest episode of This Week in Star Wars over on YouTube, it was revealed that Mando has earned another LEGO set that captures his journey together with the mysterious Child. Check out the details of the LEGO Star Wars Trouble on Tatooine (75299) set as seen in this video.
This latest Mandalorian-inspired LSW set is the 5th under the belt of this fearless minifigure warrior. Coming in at 276 pieces, the LEGO Star Wars Trouble in Tatooine includes minifigure versions of the Mandalorian himself in his shiny, new Beskar armor, a The Child, and a Tusken Raider. The set also features a small desert encampment, a Speeder Bike, and a Tusken plane equipped with a spring-loaded harpoon. It is expected to retail for $29.99 when it arrives in January 2021.
As of this posting, LEGO Shop@Home has not yet listed this latest LEGO Star Wars set, but as per the video announcement, we can expect more updates on Monday next week so hopefully, we can get to see further details about this set by then, along side other LEGO Star Wars 2021 sets that we believe are slated to be officially revealed anytime soon.
In case you missed it, LEGO has uploaded a designer video for its latest LEGO Ideas set, the LEGO Ideas 123 Sesame Street (21324). LEGO Designer Ollie Gregory, together with Sam Johnson, LEGO Creative Lead, and LEGO Graphic Designer Crystal Fontan gives us a tour in this official LEGO version of the iconic New York apartment building in 123 Sesame Street. Watch this.
This set gives tribute to the classic US children’s television show that started it all. It features a ton of references that adult fans of the show will surely catch. We have Big Bird’s Nest, Abby Cadabby’s Garden, Elmo’s Bedroom, Bert and Ernie’s Bedroom, Cookie Monster’s Monsterpiece Theater, and Mr. Hooper’s Store among many others. There’s also an easter egg reference hidden in Elmo’s room that shows a micro build replica of the LEGO Thatcher Perkins Locomotive (396) released in 1976.
Seldom does a new LEGO Ideas set get’s the green light in having new LEGO pieces, and the 123 Sesame Street (21324) is an exception. All five main minifigures in this set are made from new LEGO elements, such as the minifig heads for Big Bird, Bert, Ernie, Cookie Monster, and Elmo.
New printed elements also include the famous Sesame Street sign, a printed 1×2 brick with the 123 address of the building, a clear minifigure head for Dorothy’s goldfish bowl, a printed ball element for Oscar the Grouch, and a printed heart element for his pet Slimy. There’s also a total of 22 stickers in this set, among which includes a pretty neat homage to Ivan Guerrero, the LEGO fan designer behind this set. This particular sticker is found in Elmo’s room, featuring a letter written by Elmo to his friend Ivan.
The LEGO Ideas 123 Sesame Street (21324) is currently available at LEGO Shop@Home and your nearest LEGO brand store retailing for $120. It’s an 18+ set that comes in at 1,367 and features its first-ever collection of Muppets inspired minifigures. So what do you think of this latest LEGO Ideas set?

LEGO servers are now updated to include the November 2020 LEGO Store Calendar, giving us a glimpse of things to come in your nearest LEGO brand store. As the LEGO Group gradually resumes operations of all of its stores, we can still notice the lack of in-store building activities that the stores used to have. Despite these limitations, there are still plenty of reasons to visit (following health safety protocols in your area, of course) your fave LEGO Store and to check out the freebies that they have in store for next month. Take a look at next month’s LEGO Store promotional calendar below. You may also download a PDF copy of this LEGO promotional calendar right here.
The LEGO 1989 Batwing (76161) Takes Center Stage
Front and center in next month’s November 2020 LEGO Store Calendar is Tim Burton’s 1989 vision of the Dark Knight’s aerial assault vehicle now captured in LEGO brick form. The LEGO 1989 Batwing (76161) features an 18+ branding that caters to the adult LEGO fan community. It comes in at 2,363 pieces and retails for $200. It had an early VIP launch last October 21 and is expected to be available for all starting November 1.
Free LEGO Hidden Side El Fuego’s Stunt Cannon (30464)
October 26 to November 1, 2020

From November 1 to 8, LEGO VIP members with single-receipt purchases of LEGO Star Wars sets worth $100 or more will be entitled to receive an exclusive LEGO Star Wars Han Solo Carbonite Metal Keychain (5006363) or while supplies last. As far as I recall, this LEGO Star Wars element has only appeared in five LEGO Star Wars sets, so it’s a nice move from LEGO to finally have this as a keychain accessory.

This freebie will be offered in all LEGO brand stores and over at LEGO Shop@Home.
VIP Sweepstakes: Limited-Edition LEGO Store Lester Minifigure
November 9 to 29, 2020
Now that the LEGO VIP minifigure sweepstakes seem to be a regular staple of the LEGO VIP Rewards Center, the next exclusive collectible minifigure to be raffled is the limited-edition LEGO Store Lester minifigure. This rare minifig first appeared back in 2016 as a raffle prize during the grand opening of the LEGO Leicester Square brand store in London. Back then, only a total of 275 pieces were given away to walk-in customers who visited the store in its opening. Fast-forward to 2020, you may use your 50 VIP points if you wish to try your luck in bagging this exclusive, starting November 9 until 29. Remember, no purchases necessary to join the LEGO VIP minifigure sweepstakes.
Other things worth noticing in the November 2020 LEGO Store Calendar is the official announcement of this year’s LEGO Black Friday Sale. The highly anticipated annual LEGO sale event will happen from November 27 to 30. Stay tuned for more updates on the hottest LEGO sets that will go on sale during this promo period.
Finally, you may also mark your calendars on November 17 for the official launch of the LEGO Star Wars Holiday Special, which will begin streaming over at Disney+ starting on this date. This animated Holiday Special directly follows the events in Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker. We find Rey embarking on a time-spanning adventure that will allow her to meet some of the iconic characters in the entire Star Wars saga. It will be an interesting mash-up of all LEGO Star Wars characters wrapped around that LEGO holiday humor.

The brand-new LEGO® Ideas 123 Sesame Street set is the latest product from the LEGO Ideas collection, which conceptualizes and produces the creative wonders imagined and voted for by LEGO brick fans themselves.
Created with all the delightful elements of 123 Sesame Street, the new set is packed with authentic details from the famous New York City neighborhood. From Bert and Ernie’s apartment, in which Bert famously pleaded with Ernie to remove a banana from his ear so he could hear better, to Big Bird’s nest, where the grown-ups finally met Mr. Snuffleupagus in person – builders will marvel in Sesame Street’s most memorable moments.

Created by Sesame Street fan and LEGO enthusiast Ivan Guerrero, this set brings together the magic of the iconic New York City street with the mindful and creative building experience of LEGO bricks to create an instant classic.
Speaking about the creative journey, Ivan Guerrero said: “As a long-time fan of the LEGO Group and Sesame Street, it has been a dream come true to be able to merge my two passions into a memorable set for fellow builders to enjoy. LEGO bricks and Sesame Street shaped both my childhood and adult years, and the opportunity to work with the LEGO Ideas team to bring this quintessential New York street to life has been thrilling.”
Federico Begher, VP of Global Marketing at The LEGO Group added: “We were instantly drawn to Ivan’s idea, as we had never created an official LEGO product with Sesame Street before. It was clear from the submission that Ivan is passionate about Sesame Street and he really brought it to life with a wide array of characters and bright, classic colors. For the first time in the history of LEGO Ideas, we also had the opportunity to create brand new minifigures for a set – bringing something new and exciting to our LEGO fans.
Knowing the impact Sesame Street has had on the world for decades, sharing similar values with generations past and present, this felt like an exciting way to blend novelty with nostalgia, and pay homage to the truly iconic 123 Sesame Street through LEGO Ideas.”
“Your imagination and creativity can take you places—and with the help of LEGO Ideas, it’s now transporting fans to Sesame Street where you’re never too old for a playdate,” said Gabriela Arenas, Sesame Workshop’s Vice President of Licensing, North America.

The first installment of DC Fandome’s virtual comic book convention has been concluded, and if you’re one of the fortunate souls that managed to join in their event sweepstakes, then you are probably aware that one of the uber-cool prizes that will be given away is the exclusive LEGO DC Fandome Supergirl minifigure.
Just to be precise, the DC Fandome sweepstakes is already closed. And if you missed out on that window of opportunity, then I guess we just have to stay tuned if another similar sweepstakes prize will be offered again on September 12 when DC Fandome launches its second virtual event. If you’re also residing outside of the US, then your chances of having this exclusive and limited edition LEGO DC Fandome Supergirl minifigure is either through eBay or a friend that is both lucky and kind enough to give you his/her minifigure winning.
In case you’re wondering, this minifig version of Supergirl is based on Melissa Benoist’s on-screen rendition of Kara Zor-El, as seen on CW’s Supergirl Season 5. This newer LEGO version of Supergirl stays true to her new looks, favoring dark blue pants over her iconic skirt. Plus the much-talked-about change in her hairstyle is also reflected in the minifigure hairpiece. As noted by The Brothers Brick, while the legs and torso prints are unique to this LEGO DC Fandome Supergirl, the hairpiece is taken from Series 20’s Pyjama Girl, so this particular LEGO element is not entirely new.
Again, this particular sweepstake draw is already over, and if in case you’re one of the 1,495 winners of the LEGO DC Fandome Supergirl minifigure, then perhaps you can drop us a comment below and share to us what your initial impressions of this LEGO exclusive.
There’s a new LEGO set on display at the LEGO Store in Billund that got me excited. Thanks to this report from Stone Wars, we now know that we will also be having a larger LEGO City set big enough to qualify as a LEGO Store exclusive. The LEGO City Main Square (60271) comes jam-packed with many smaller builds that give life to this bustling activity center.
Though we only have this single image taken on the shelf of the LEGO Store in Billund, it is enough for us to see what we can expect from the set. For starters, the set includes a town hall, a city diner, a concert stage, a park with string lights, a helicopter, a black limousine, and a pretty interesting monorail and train stop. It’s hard to figure out from the box art if the set comes with tracks for the monorail since the image of the monorail seems to be superimposed on the foreground. The LEGO City Main Square also comes with an impressive array of 13 minifigures, including the characters of Poppy Starr, Harl Hubbs, Mayor Fleck, Snake Rattler, Duke Detain, and Freya Mcloud as seen from LEGO’s ongoing animated series, LEGO City Adventures.
The way the LEGO City Main Square (60271) is designed is also reminiscent of LEGO’s previous offering back in 2015 in the form of the LEGO City Square (60097). This set also featured a monorail and a chopper, with a total number of 14 minifigures hustling and bustling around.
We have no further info about this latest LEGO City Main Square, except for its price point of around 199.99 Euros or $190 to $200 for that matter. This may also suggest that we can expect a piece count of around 1,700 pieces or so coming from such a large set. We don’t know for sure if and when this set will make an appearance over at LEGO Shop@Home, but I’m positive that we will officially hear from LEGO anytime soon.
Thanks again to Lukas from Stone Wars for sharing this piece of news. To know the most recent LEGO City releases, be sure to check our list right here.
After announcing their awesome giveaway the day before, the LEGO Ideas Team led by Hasan Jensen and Samuel Johnson has just announced the victors of the LEGO Ideas Third 2019 Review Results. Out of 12 qualifiers, it turns out that we can now expect three additional LEGO Ideas sets added to the theme’s roster. Check out the video of their highly anticipated announcement.
A huge congratulations to the following LEGO product ideas for making it to this elite circle:
Home Alone. McCallister’s House by Alex Storozhuk (aka adwind)
Home Alone – is a 1990 Christmas movie… Come on, you guys all know what Home Alone is! Let’s talk about what this movie has become to thousands of us around the globe. To our family Home Alone is a Christmas tradition, symbol, and very warm memories of childhood! So in this project, I and my wife Nadya tried to put as much love and details as we could!
This set consists of 3000 pieces. McCallister’s house has 2 floors full of furniture and stuff from the movie and of course, it features a mansard. There is a small tree house outside with a rope that links it with the main structure to help Kevin escape.
The main roof and kitchen roof are removable and also the house itself is openable to let you recreate scenes and make your own stories!
Here you may see the main hall, kitchen and dining area, brick-built stairs, mom and dad bedroom, Buzz room, 2 bathrooms, storeroom.
I have designed and built this replica typewriter, that has a working hand-cranked mechanism. I originally developed the idea whilst I was on the Legomasters TV show in the UK. Since then I have continued to refine the design, making a hand-cranked mechanism instead of a power functions motor that I had originally fitted. I have also had the keys printed up with letters. I believe this would make a fun and unique lego ideas project. I think it showcases the versatility of the Lego brick and would look amazing on any Lego fans desk, at home or even in the office at work!
I hope to add more updates, showing my ideas for the packaging, and giving details on how I developed the working mechanism.
I’m dedicating the idea to my wife Rachael, who is my best friend and an amazing support to me, she always believes in me and is an amazing encouragement to me in everything I do. I would love to be able to walk into a Lego shop with Rachael and my children Daisy and Obby, and see my design on the shelves 🙂
Seinfeld 30th Anniversary by Brent Waller (aka BrentWaller)
This LEGO Ideas project celebrates the 30th Anniversary of the beloved classic 90s comedy sitcom with an accurate recreation of Jerry’s Upper West Side Manhattan apartment using approximately 900 LEGO Pieces.
It also includes 5 minifigures including Comedian and shows namesake, Jerry Seinfeld, neurotic best friend George Costanza, friend Elaine Benes, eccentric but kind-hearted neighbor Cosmo Kramer and Jerry’s arch-nemesis, mailman and neighbor known only as “Newman”.
Though I have to say that I was a bit surprised that the either the Winter Chalet or the Legend of Zelda product ideas did not make it to the cut, I am still happy for the fan designers behind these winning projects. The LEGO Ideas Typewriter is a technically impressive piece of work, while the LEGO Home Alone and Seinfeld sets will surely hit the nostalgic sweet spots of older LEGO fans.
It’s too early to tell on when these winning product ideas will be eventually available since the LEGO Ideas design and review teams will certainly be hard at work on these three fan projects. They also have a handful of product ideas to work on as they now enter the First 2020 LEGO Ideas Review Stage with its staggering 26 qualifiers. It will surely be a busy year at LEGO Ideas HQ.
So what do you think about the LEGO Ideas Third 2019 Review Results? Are you happy about these selections? Let’s talk about it in the comments. below.
Last month we saw a record-breaking number of LEGO Ideas Review Stage qualifiers that represent an astounding 26 projects in all. Now that we have entered the first month of the next 2020 LEGO Ideas Qualifying Stage, it is highly likely that we might see the same trend again. Because in just more than a month, we now have a total of eight 10K qualifiers that are now guaranteed to be included in the Second 2020 LEGO Ideas Review Stage.
I have to admit that I’ve not covered much of LEGO Ideas during these past few weeks, but seeing how the community is flourishing amidst this pandemic is truly encouraging. I’m pretty sure that the LEGO Ideas Team has a lot in their hands right now.
While waiting for the announcement of our next official LEGO Ideas set which is slated to happen anytime soon, let’s take a look at these next batch of 10K qualifiers. What I also find interesting about these entries is that most of them were submitted during the time when most of the world is still in lockdown, and managed to gather the needed 10,000 votes in just a short period of time. Indeed, our creativity will not be stifled even by this pandemic. Check this out.
Given this trend of submissions and approval, it is probably right to assume that before the Second 2020 LEGO Review Stage actually commences we might have a total number of qualifiers that may outnumber those from the last review stage. We can probably expect a longer turnaround time with regards to their review until such time that LEGO Ideas Review Team can come up with a way to work around such a volume of entries.
