LEGO Masters US Sweepstakes Gives You a Chance to Win a Year’s Supply of LEGO

The first episode of LEGO Masters US already kicked off yesterday, and I’m glad to see that none of our contestants are going home yet after a grueling 15 hours of building time (I’ll talk more about this on a separate post). While we’re eagerly waiting for the second episode to air next week, you might want to head over at your local LEGO Store to challenge yourself with that next awesome build. Because for every $10 you spend for any LEGO products will entitle you to a raffle entry to the LEGO Masters US Sweepstakes.

Every LEGO set purchase during the Registration Period from February 1 to April 30 (worth $10 or more) qualifies you to join the sweepstakes. For example, if your single-receipt purchase is worth $10 then you get one raffle entry, two entries if it is worth $20, five if it’s worth $50, ten entries if it’s $100 and so on.

And the prizes couldn’t be sweeter. Every week starting February 17 and every week thereafter, LEGO will draw from the pool of sweepstakes entries to select the winner of a Weekly Prize which is $500 worth of LEGO sets. And on May 11, winners for the First and Grand Prizes will also be selected where the First Prize Winner will receive a year’s supply of LEGO valued at $3,000, while the Grand Prize Winner will be awarded a trip for four (4) to LEGOLAND in New York.

The nice part about this LEGO Masters US Sweepstakes is that your LEGO purchases are not just limited to a LEGO brand store or LEGO Shop@Home in order to qualify, but may also include LEGO purchases with other partner stores as well such as Amazon, Walmart, and Target.

Remember to keep your receipts on your next LEGO purchase and read the rest of the contest rules to know more about how to submit your entries. Again registration for the LEGO Masters US Sweepstakes will end on April 30, 2020 (11:59PM ET) so be sure to grab your next LEGO bricks and receipts before then. Happy building!

LEGO Masters US Is On Tonight at Fox!

Alright, I’m officially hyped. After almost 7 months of waiting, LEGO Masters US is finally here! Get your bricks on as we witness 10 pairs of the most talented builders across the United States battle for the title to become the ultimate LEGO Master with a handsome cash reward of $100,000.

The names have been drafted, and with 20 individuals coming from all walks of life and professions sharing one passion for the LEGO brick, this will be surely one heck of a brick ride.

LEGO Masters US

At the helm of the show will be judges Amy Corbett who also serves as a LEGO Senior Designer, and Jamie Berard the LEGO builder par excellence who is responsible for most of the beloved sets under the LEGO Creator Expert and Architecture themes. And of course, to level up the challenges that contestants have to face throughout the competition, we have the guy behind the brooding voice of LEGO Batman, Will Arnett, to host the series. A number of celebrities will also be in the show such as Terry Crews, Nicole Byer, Mayim Bialik, Phil Lord, and Christopher Miller. A Star Wars-themed episode will also see a special appearance of R2-D2, C3-PO and BB-8.

Similar to previous seasons, the LEGO Masters US will feature a ton of building challenges that will stretch the limits of our contestants’ creativity. Other than the Star Wars-inspired episode, there will also be a movie-themed episode, a “Good vs Evil Challenge” and a Story Book episode. Details are sketchy, but the titles of the first three episodes are already posted online so it’s exciting to see what will happen in the show throughout the month of February. Some of these follow the same challenges as that from Season 2 in LEGO Masters Australia, like the Cut in Half episode.

February 5 – Dream Park Theme Park 
David and G’s awesome theme park creation from LEGO Masters Australia 2019.

The pairs of contestants are introduced; each duo must craft one section of a theme park, and when the sections are combined, they create an impressive theme park world.

February 12 – Space Smash
This space-themed MOC was the final build created by Jordan and Miller for LEGO Masters Australia.

Each duo must create a space-themed build; the creations must impress the judges when they are smashed in slow motion; Mayim Bialik guest judges.

February 19 – Cut in Half
Cut in Half is a challenge where contestants have to build the missing half of any random object using LEGO bricks.

Each team is given an everyday object that has been sliced in two and they are tasked with building its other half.

 

The first episode of LEGO Masters US will air tonight on Fox 9/8c, and will also be available for streaming via the FOX NOW app if you have a cable account or subscription. It will also be available for Hulu subscribers on Thursday morning.

A Glimpse At Some of the 2020 LEGO Licensed Sets Revealed at the Nuremberg Toy Fair

More 2020 LEGO licensed sets such as those from the Marvel, Star Wars and Minecraft franchises are on its way this summer. However, LEGO is still strictly putting a lid on most of them at the Nuremberg Toy except for some that visitors are allowed to see.

LEGO Star Wars 2020

As always, upcoming LEGO Star Wars are one of the most tightly guarded licensed themes and only the LEGO Star Wars 2020 Advent Calendar (75279) was revealed during the toy fair, and it is expected to be released sometime in September retailing for €29.99.

LEGO Marvel Superheroes 2020

Only one LEGO Marvel set was allowed to be seen and this is the first one under the theme. The LEGO Marvel Iron Man Bust (76165) is reported to be also bear the 18+ tag similar to the LEGO Architecture The White House (21054). It is expected to retail for €59.99 with an early release in May. I assume that this will be based on MCU’s version of Iron Man, and will somehow larger in scale as compared to the LEGO Star Wars Darth Vader Bust (75227) which was exclusively released during the Star Wars Celebration in Chicago, and at Target stores.

It is most likely that the LEGO Marvel Iron Man Bust will be similar in scale as that of the LEGO Star Wars Darth Vader Bust (75227).
LEGO Minecraft 2020

There will be the LEGO Minecraft Crafting 3.0 (21161) that will be released as the newer version of those that were released in 2014 (set21116) and 2017 (set 21135). It was also mentioned that a LEGO Minecraft Red Stone Battle (21163) set is also in the brick pipelines. There were no other set details that were revealed about these sets and that’s quite a bummer for fans of the LEGO Minecraft theme.

Another version the LEGO Minecraft Crafting Box will be released sometime in summer. The image above is from the LEGO Minecraft Crafting Box 2.0 (21135).

I am more interested in how that LEGO Marvel Iron Man Bust (76165) will turn out. Being larger as compared to other LEGO busts, I expect greater detail and more realistic design on his helmet and armor especially if it will accommodate the power core on his chest. It’s a fitting tribute to the legacy of Robert Downey Jr’s version of Iron Man as the whole MCU basically started with him. And having a release date this upcoming May will sure to see some official images pop-up anytime soon.

So what do you think about the rest of the sets 2020 LEGO licensed sets that were not exhibited at the toy fair? Are you impressed about them? Let me know in the comments below.

Thanks again to Zusammengebaut for this info.

LEGO Ninjago 2020 Set Info at the Nuremberg Toy Fair

As the Nuremberg Toy Fair goes on, the LEGO Booth has revealed some information regarding summer’s LEGO Ninjago 2020 sets. However, unlike other themes from the City, Creator, Friends, and Technic lines. They were a bit mum about the rest of the details.

Zusammengebaut is still in the halls of the International Toy Fair, reporting from the toy event. However, it seems that LEGO is still keeping a tight lid on what’s next for LEGO Ninjago, with little information being made available for attendees. Save for the set names and a couple of sets on display.

LEGO Ninjago Summer 2020 Sets
  • Spinjitzu Burst Cole (70685) – €9.99
  • Spinjitzu Burst Kai (70686) – €9.99
  • Spinjitzu Burst Lloyd (70687) – €9.99
  • Lloyd (71717) – €24.99
  • Dragon with Wu (71718) – €19.99
  • Rhinoceros (71719) – €49.99
  • Destiny’s Bounty (71720) – €69.99
  • White Dragon (71721) – €79.99
  • Dungeon (71722) €9.99

Continuing the LEGO Ninjago Legacy subtheme, the first three sets (or small packs) on the list are a sort of rehash of the classic spinning sets that were first introduced in 2012. Destiny’s Bounty (71720) set is also another envisioning of the iconic ship in the series making it the 4th set of its kind since it was released in 2012 (set 9446), 2015 (set 70738), and 2017 (set 70618). It was also mentioned that there will be a sort of gameboard features on some of these sets, with even a new, never-before-seen LEGO die element that is different from traditional ones.

The LEGO Ninjago Movie Destiny’s Bounty (70618) is by far the largest version of this memorable ship. We’ll just have to see if its successor will be as great.

Though this new wave of LEGO Ninjago 2020 sets will continue to tie-in where the current animated series left off, details on the remaining sets are still scant. We just have to wait and see if all of these will be completely revealed once New York Toy Fair 2020 kicks off in February.

Here Are Some 2020 LEGO Books to Watch Out For

It seems that we’re off to a good start on this side of the brick world. Other than having more than a hundred LEGO sets released at this first quarter of the year, there are also plenty of 2020 LEGO books to go around and watch out for. What’s nice about these books is that each of them comes with either an exclusive minifigure, or minibuilds that you will not find anywhere else, such as the upcoming LEGO Minifigure: A Visual History (New Edition) with its orange LEGO Classic Spaceman minifig.

In case you want to add this to your library of LEGO books, then go ahead and browse through this listing of 2020 LEGO books to watch out for.

Third 2019 LEGO Ideas Product Qualifiers Announced

It has been a while since I last visited the LEGO Ideas community, not because I lacked the interest (I’ve always been a fan of original LEGO creations coming from the community), but with so many things going on in this side of LEGO fandom its kind of hard to keep pace at times. So when the announcement finally came in rounding up the final list of LEGO fan submissions that got that overwhelming 10K support during the Third 2019 LEGO Ideas Qualifying Period, I just need to put the spotlight on these cool brick creations.

Let’s take a quick look at these 12 qualifiers and what we can expect from them.

They’re all excellent in themselves and we even have our own favorites such as the Clockwork Aquarium and its fun play features. We just have to wait and see until the Review Stage is concluded sometime during the third quarter of the year.

Third 2019 LEGO Ideas

We’re also waiting for the LEGO Ideas Review Team to wrap things up with the Second 2019 LEGO Ideas Review Stage, and hopefully, we can get a final word from them during the next few days in which among the ten sets from this batch will emerge as the next LEGO Ideas set.

The LEGO Star Wars Mandalorian Battle Pack (75267) Is the Perfect Way to Conclude An Action-Packed Season

Disney+ has wrapped up the first season of its hit Star Wars series The Mandalorian, and now is the perfect time to show some LEGO love to the gunslingin’ galactic outcast that we all learned to admire. The show’s second season is still far off, and while we linger on some of the cliffhangers from the previous season, let’s take a look at what could probably be LEGO’s ultimate tribute to the most honorable warrior tribe of the Star Wars galaxy. And if you’re still pondering on whether or not to get the LEGO Star Wars Mandalorian Battle Pack (75267), then read on and take a look at what this latest LEGO Star Wars Battle Pack has to offer.

Since the early release of the Mandalorian Battle Pack (75267) at LEGO Shop@Home’s UK portal a couple of days ago, the highly sought after minifigure pack is now on backorder status. I guess that says more than enough to the popularity of this set which is slated to be offered in the US come January 1st. The set comes in 102 pieces and is expected to retail in the US for 15 bucks.

When I first saw this pop up in the LEGO online store, my first reaction was just “wow”. I may not be a hardcore Star Wars fan myself, but seeing the level of love that LEGO designers poured out to this set immediately pulled some heartstrings. The set evoked the same admiration that I felt when I first saw the LEGO Movie 2 Benny’s Space Squad (70841), that it leaves little room for debate on whether or not I’m going to get it.

Mandalorian Battle Pack (75267)

The Mandalorian Battle Pack (75267) features four minifigure characters from the battle-torn warrior tribe and is the second set that is specifically tied-in to the Disney+ series following the LEGO Star Wars AT-ST Raider (75254). In fact, it is the first Battle Pack in the Star Wars theme to receive such a varied treatment. Needless to say, its a huge improvement from what LEGO offered back in 2011 with the LEGO Star Wars The Clone Wars Mandalorian Battle Pack (7914), which featured minifigure characters of the same design. I will even dare say that apart from the Bounty Hunter Speeder Bike Battle Pack (75167), there is no other collection that features such a wide spectrum of characters in a single LEGO Star Wars Battle Pack. Moreover, the unique designs of each of the minifigure on the current iteration not only highlights the thoughtful creative process that went through them but also a careful retelling of the hardships that this battle-weary tribe has to endure.

If there is another thing that endears me to this set is the story that it conveys that superbly coincides with the events that transpired in the current Disney+ series. The designers are sensitive enough to include additional details in the Mandalorian Battle Pack (75267) that ensure the minifigures will be faithful in showing the tribe’s pursuit of establishing their once-proud clan. From the tribe’s battle-scarred armor brought about by their countless skirmishes with the remnants of the fallen empire to their attempts of establishing a name of their own through their customized armors, the varied colors of each minifigure also give a certain distinct personality for these minifigure characters. And if you will look closely, you’ll also notice that none of their individual designs are repeated. From their colors, helmet designs, and even their armors’ knicks and scratches, all of them are unique in their selves. This is what I really love about LEGO – the level of detail and the effort that they will go through in conveying the story behind these characters is really outstanding.

If there is one thing that I would like to see improved in this set is the fact the designers opted for stud-shooting blasters instead of the unique weapons that we saw them wield on Episode 3 of the series. I would love to see, for example, several heavy infantry minifigure accessories and that jetpack that the lead character eagerly wanted to have. Though the speeder bike is an above-average build for this type of set, the defense fort may need a bit of improvement. But considering the piece restrictions that the designers need to work with, then I guess its not such a big deal in the long run.

The Heavy Infantry Mandalorian from Episode 3 of Disney+’s The Mandalorian.
Our Mandalorian hero badly needs that jet pack.

In conclusion, the LEGO Star Wars Mandalorian Battle Pack (75267) is a piece of LEGO Star Wars memorabilia that you certainly want to take hold of. Its current backorder status over at UK LEGO Shop@Home proves how much it is in demand. And with its upcoming North America release on January 1st, you need to be quick in making your purchases. However, you might be interested to know that our official storefront – The Brick Show Shop – is also featuring these LEGO Star Wars warrior minifigs, and much more. You may check them out by clicking on the following images below which will lead you directly to our store.

Here’s a Nice Surprise: FREE LEGO Masters Shopping Bag Promo Now Up At LEGO Shop@Home

Though this promo was not mentioned in the December 2019 LEGO Store Calendar for non-spoiler reasons, it’s nice to see this appearing in my LEGO Shop@Home shopping cart. Beginning today until December 24, you’ll get a FREE LEGO Masters Shopping Bag for any LEGO purchase made online an in-store.

LEGO Masters Shopping Bag

From the looks of it, this free LEGO Masters Shopping Bag (5006086) is not made of the usual thin plastic material that LEGO shopping bags were made of. It’s definitely usable and a good way to support LEGO’s initiatives of cutting down on plastic usage as LEGO has previously announced. There seems to be no qualifying price point attached to this promo as well, so it’s nice to see this freebie arrive in your doorsteps regardless of the value of your LEGO purchase.

The best part is that it builds the excitement for the upcoming US version of the LEGO Masters reality TV show that was widely popular in the UK and Australia.  LEGO Masters US is scheduled to air via FOX on February 5, 2020. Details of the show are still a bit sketchy save for the fact that LEGO Batman Movie’s Will Arnett will be hosting the show. I’m excited to see who will be joining the roster of contestants, and I’m pretty sure that one of them is somebody who is very close to our brick-loving hearts. Needless to say, it’s simply awesome to see them on screen and coming up with those superb LEGO builds. Here’s the most recent preview trailer of LEGO Masters US in case you missed it.
