First Images of LEGO Minecraft 2020 Sets Surface

After more and more LEGO sets are gradually revealed by other online retailers in time for LEGO’s 2020 releases for the first half of the year, we now have further info on what to expect from the LEGO Minecraft 2020 sets. Though the entire Minecraft franchise has taken a dip in terms of its popularity among young gamers, LEGO seems to have plenty of plans ahead for its tie-in merchandise.

Joining other LEGO Minecraft ‘BigFig’ sets from early this year, LEGO now introduces two additional sets under this format – the LEGO Minecraft Creeper with Ocelot (21156) and Pig with Zombie Baby (21157) – both of which are tagged as part of Series 2 under this subtheme. If everything goes well, then perhaps we can expect more sets coming from this direction.

We also have additional sets that offer a handful of new elements and characters. That buildable LEGO Minecraft Panda from set 21158 is definitely adorable, plus the new minifigure renditions of those nasty Illager mobs with their crossbow-wielding Pillagers and devastating Ravagers as depicted in set 21160, are probably good reasons for some to get these new LEGO Minecraft 2020 sets.

Same with the rest of the new-for-2020 licensed LEGO sets such as those coming from the Star Wars, Trolls, Disney Princess and Marvel themes, these new LEGO Minecraft 2020 sets are slated to be released on January 1st. Read on to know more about their piece count and price in Euros, and I will update this post once additional images are made available by LEGO from LEGO Shop@Home. Thanks to Promobricks for the heads up.

Mega Construx Halo Heroes Mini Figures Series 10: A Closer Look

Hailed as the “killer app” for the original Microsoft Xbox upon its 2001 release, the first-person shooter game “Halo: Combat Evolved” would become the first entry in a videogame series that would span nearly two decades, branching out into other gameplay genres and exploding into a larger multimedia franchise including books, comics, live-action web-series, anime and, quite naturally, toy lines. Microsoft has long relied on Mega Bloks (now Mega Brands, a Mattel subsidiary) to bring some of the sweetest “Halo” toys ever for collectors. While Mega has had its Bloks line specialize in replicating “Halo” vehicles, they have also branched out into producing action mini-figures via Mega Construx. This is reflected in their new Mega Construx Halo Heroes Series 10 characters.

The Mega Construx “Halo Heroes” Series 10 mini-figures bring together a choice selection of characters across the sci-fi FPS franchise. UNSC Master Chief PO John-117, his fellow Spartan super-soldiers, his trusty AI companion Cortana and a variety of hostile extraterrestrial threats from the Covenant and Forerunners are included in this tenth series of figures on the Mega Construx line.

The new “halo heroes” figures

Appropriate for being Series 10 of “Halo Heroes,” this batch of Mega Construx figures features 10 individual characters. They each come with their own handheld equipment/accessories and standing base with a gold-colored nameplate. The figures included in this batch are:

Mega Construx Halo Heroes

 

Mega Construx Halo Heroes

 

Mega Construx Halo Heroes

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

While you can get them individually, Mega Construx is also offering “Halo Heroes” Series 10 mini-figures in a collector’s case. This features multiple copies of the characters in the set to a total 21 figures.

These new easy-to-assemble figures have been available since early this month, and are selling like hotcakes online. So we at The Brick Show are also offering these Series 10 Mega Construx Halo Heroes on our online store.

Our big thanks to Amazon, Toy Wiz and Reddit for the accompanying images.

Check Out the Winners of the LEGO Ideas Junkertown Inspired Building Contest

Back in July, LEGO Ideas launched another building contest that asked fans to come up with their best brick rendition of the harsh Australian Outback in true, Junkertown-style. Inspired by the LEGO Overwatch sets, the LEGO Ideas Show Us Your Junker-Inspired Interpretation of an Overwatch Hero challenges builders to recreate their favorite Overwatch character if they’re a resident of Junkertown. The winners are in and let’s take a look at these outstanding winning entries.

Junker Orisa

LEGO Ideas Junkertown

This is my interpretation of a Junker-fied Orisa.
in all the chaos in Junkertown, a lot of her armor got damaged, and therefore overlapped and welded with old rusty pieces of metal lying around in Junkertowns surroundings. Though a lot of her changed, she still managed to keep some of her somewhat friendly personality.
I decided not to make huge changes to her, so the original design would be easy to recognize.
The model consists of 674 parts, its made in LDD and rendered with Stud.io ~ AlexWeigelt
Junkertown Hanzo

LEGO Ideas Junkertown

Hanzo equipped for surviving in the harsh environment of the Outback.
This was a really fun build, both to recreate the character recognizably and also to add the Junkertown twist. I hope you enjoy! (The cloth elements are all LEGO: parts 32652, 32653, 36964, 35863, and bb685pb01.) ~ BallomNomNom 
JunkerTown Winston

Even in the thick of the Australian outback, a scientist like Winston can figure out how to make the most of the surrounding junk. Armed with an electromagnetic frag launcher, a jet engine booster pack, a new cyborg arm, and of course, Winston never goes anywhere without his bull hide Spiffy hat! ~ Legofin.

Junkertown Winston

LEGO Ideas Junkertown

This version of Winston ended up in Junkertown after he escaped from the Moon. He used his scientific and engineering skills to build armor and a jump pack of the remains of his crashed emergency pod and equipped himself with a demolition saw that he found in an abandoned junkyard. After some modifications of his own, he is now equipped and ready to take on the other inhabitants of Junkertown! ~ oOger

Junkhardt

When Reinhardt was stranded in the Australian Outback without his powered armour, he had to adapt in order to survive. Crafting a new battle suit from old vehicle and spaceship parts, he is now ready to take on Junkertown in style… ~ MarkNewnham1

 

Each of the winners received the entire collection of 2019 LEGO Overwatch sets, plus an exclusive LEGO Overwatch box with special golden guns elements not found in any other LEGO sets. To top it off, winners also received some limited-edition Overwatch merchandise. For more details about the currently available LEGO Overwatch sets, be sure to visit LEGO Shop@Home. Congratulations to the winners! Keep on building, mates!

Legend of Zelda: BotW Stables Qualifies for the Third 2019 LEGO Ideas Review Stage

It has been long dreamt for by long-time LEGO and Nintendo fans that a sort of crossover happens between these two pop icons – and these next LEGO Ideas product idea may hopefully pave the way for that. The Legend of Zelda: BotW Stables by Hanwasyellowfirst is our next LEGO Ideas project that managed to earn those needed 10K fan votes to enable it to qualify for the Third 2019 LEGO Ideas Review Stage. This LEGO product idea takes its inspiration from the famed stables of the hit video game Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild that was released back in March of 2017 together with the world debut of the highly popular Nintendo Switch.

Legend of Zelda: BotW Stables

The LEGO Ideas Legend of Zelda: BotW Stables faithfully recreates the stables that are commonly found throughout the land of Hyrule. It also features several roof sections that can be opened to reveal the inner workings of the build. Other features include a fire pit and several benches, crates, ingredients, and of course horses. Proposed minifigures for this product idea includes the characters of Link, Kaas, Beedle, Pikango, Stable Master, Traveller, and a Mystery Minifig.

The LEGO Ideas Legend of Zelda: BotW Stables

Here is my first submission for LEGO ideas. The Legend Of Zelda: Breath of The Wild Stable. 

I chose the Stable as it captures well the spirit of this great Zelda game. Stables can be found throughout the vast landscape of Hyrule and I think it looks great as a LEGO set too, plus… horses!

Disclaimer: Unfortunately I have zero graphic design expertise. So when it comes to the minifigures you will have to use your imagination, I have tried to get something as close to representative as possible from what was on offer. 

This, therefore, is also the case for any printed elements or stickers you imagine would be involved, 

some classic Hylian script and some tasty recipes on the inside wall!

The Build: 

The roof sections are hinged to allow the stable and horse pen to open up. Inside are 4 beds, a table and chairs, a recipe and the reception desk (for the trusty Stable Master to turn trusty Inn-keep). 

Grab some apples or monster parts and cook up something tasty! Missing an ingredient? Why don’t you check the crates, or ask Beedle! I’m sure I saw a Lizalfos horn somewhere about… 

Feed the stable dog a nice piece of prime meat, maybe he will reward you!

You may even be able to see signs of a sneaky Korok nearby…

Contents: 

  • Stable 
  • Fire Pit & Benches
  • Crates and Ingredients (various)
  • Weapons (various)  
  • Horses x3 

Minifigures:

  • Link
  • Kaas

  • Traveler

Legend of Zelda: BotW Stables Legend of Zelda: BotW Stables

This is the second LEGO Ideas submission that is credited to builder Hanwasyellowfirst that managed to gain 10,000 LEGO fan votes. If you recall, the LEGO Ideas The Seven Dwarfs’ House product idea is currently in review as a qualifier in the on-going Second  2019 Review Stage. The LEGO Ideas Legend of Zelda: BotW Stables is the third set to enter the Third 2019 Review Stage following the likes of Queen: I Want to Break Free and Seinfeld 30th Anniversary Set.

Do you think this set has the potential of opening doors for future LEGO and Nintendo partnerships? Share your thoughts in the comments below.

New LEGO Brawls Mobile Game Coming on Apple Arcade

Apple is revving things up in the video games industry with the introduction of Apple Arcade earlier this year. And with LEGO working partnership with the most valuable tech company on the planet, we can be sure that LEGO has plenty in store for Apple users and mobile gamers. In fact, its quite a busy year for LEGO as far as mobile gaming is concerned. We have the upcoming launch of LEGO Legacy: Heroes Unboxed this fall, and LEGO Star Wars Battles which is scheduled for release next year. Plus with the upcoming launch of LEGO Brawls for the Apple Arcade this month, the mobile gaming landscape couldn’t be more exciting.

From what he heard from Bricks Fanz, LEGO Brawls combines the fast-paced action of a 4v4 multiplayer setup, set in an expansive LEGO brick universe. Developed by Red Games Co., LEGO Brawls allows you to build and customize your very own LEGO minifigure character avatar that will battle it out against other contenders across iconic LEGO themes. Whether be it in Ninjago City, in outer space or the vast desert wasteland, LEGO Brawls offers a challenging and yet fun environment where you can battle it out with friends or cooperatively play with them.

LEGO Brawls

Each particular stage in LEGO Brawls also offers the chance of achieving certain hilarious power-ups and vehicles with that signature brand of LEGO humor. You can choose from an array of pie launchers, money guns, jet packs, and even a silly old hotdog stand. Here’s some in-game footage courtesy of Apple Arcade.

Avoid This LEGO Star Wars Skywalker Saga Fake Download

Yep, you read it right. It seems that there will always be those group of people who will not miss out an opportunity to trick people in doing their bidding. Rebelscum raises the warning flag when a fraudulent claim from a shady site claims to already have a copy of the upcoming LEGO Star Wars Skywalker Saga which is yet to be officially released on December 31, 2020. This recent posting came from GamerHQ.com, where it claims that you can download the said game from their site – for free. Now I’m quite positive that I am NOT hitting that download button for any reason at all. Read on for what this site has to say about this unholy early release. Be warned though, you might find the English tad confusing.

LEGO Star Wars Skywalker Saga

LEGO STAR WARS THE SKYWALKER SAGA PC GAME FULL VERSION DOWNLOAD

Traveler Tales and Warner Bros.. has presented, 15 years after the first Lego Star Wars appeared, what they define as another generation of games in the franchise. In E3 2019 we’ve made it clear: it is not a movie, but it is not a remastering, but a completely new game based on the 9 movies of this saga: the first trilogy, the prequels not to mention the brand new trilogy, that will finish in Christmas using Star Wars Ep. IX Rise of Skywalker.

They’ve shown Us the level corresponding to the Return of the Lego Jedi Star Wars The Skywalker Saga. But which makes it clear that we have liberty To proceed to any world to fighting against the boats, or devote Of the Empire (which is what they’ve shown to the controllers of the Millennium Falcon). Each of those planets has places. From the Demonstration of E3, they have proven Tatooine’s surface, which will feature The Jabba Palace, Mos Eisley (the spaceport of this first movie ), Mos Espa Or the pod racing circuit of Episode I.

Reading this ‘product description’ makes me think that I’m either reading from a poorly translated text, or an AI-powered droid is just tripping on me. In any case, do remember that this claim is FAKE. And for the love of the brick, do yourself a favor by not downloading anything from this site. Or else you will be taking the unnecessary risk of turning your PC into a nice, hefty piece of paperweight.  Be sure to do your research and check with legitimate sites before you believe in anything that you see or read over the internet. It will also help if you add our Brick Show blog to your feed so you can immediately be notified with the latest legit news in this side of the LEGO Star Wars galaxy. Here’s the announce trailer once again for the LEGO Star Wars Skywalker Saga video game.

 

LEGO Star Wars The Skywalker Saga Animated Series Maybe In the Works

It looks like a new LEGO animated series is in the works, and is slated to be a spin-off of the next huge LEGO video game coming in 2020. Earlier this year, LEGO came up with the LEGO Star Wars All-Stars TV show that features the main characters of the galaxy far away in a series of specials that covers the entire Star Wars saga as we then know it. And this time around, with the possible release of the LEGO Star Wars The Skywalker Saga animated series, we can now see how the entire story of the Skywalker family unfold in typical LEGO fashion.

The suggestion came out when Fantha Tracks spotted a catalog that was given away at a licensed merchandise trade fair last month. The catalog features a timeline of some titles that are either related to a TV series or certain video game franchises, including the LEGO Star Wars The Skywalker Saga.

Skywalker Saga Animated Series

Now it has to be noted that this is entirely speculative at this point considering the fact that the said catalog does not specify if this is indeed a new LEGO TV series that will run its course throughout next year. But with all signs pointing to the possibility of the upcoming video game counterpart having an April or May release date, then it goes to show that what this catalog may suggest is an animated series spin-off that will run its course in 2020.

Again this assertion may not be entirely clear at this point, but with the announcement that the video game itself will cover the entire Star Wars saga until its epic conclusion in Episode IX, then it will be nice to have a LEGO animated series that is ambitious enough to cover the highlights of Star Wars canon.

LEGO Star Wars The Skywalker Saga

What do you think about this possibility of a LEGO Star Wars The Skywalker Saga animated series? Are you looking forward to this one? Let me know in the comments below.

 

LEGO Star Wars Battles Mobile Game Launching in 2020

I have to admit that this news from the LEGO Star Wars front fell off from my radar. With the hype and excitement behind the upcoming LEGO Star Wars The Skywalker Saga video game, I guess it’s kind of easy to be distracted and miss out on what LEGO has in store particularly on the mobile gaming platform. And starting next year, fans of LEGO mobile games can look forward to LEGO Star Wars Battles on their Android and Apple mobile devices, as announced over at StarWars.com.

LEGO Star Wars Battles

This latest LEGO mobile game will feature a tower-building and defense gameplay, coupled with a huge collection of Star Wars characters and vehicles to collect. It’s a pretty cool idea to see all your favorite SW characters (including newer ones from the upcoming Episode IX: The Rise of Skywalker) mashed-up in a hilarious, brick-built battleground. Check out the LEGO Star Wars Battles official press release below.

LEGO STAR WARS BATTLES LETS YOU ENTER THE BRICK ARENA

THE NEW MOBILE GAME, AVAILABLE IN 2020, BRINGS TOGETHER EVERY ERA OF STAR WARS STORYTELLING TO COLLECT, BUILD, AND FIGHT IN THE GREATEST LEGO STAR WARS BATTLES THE GALAXY HAS EVER SEEN.

What happens when an Ewok takes on a Tusken Raider? Can a flock of porgs tackle a stormtrooper in a standoff? Who would win in a showdown between Luke Skywalker and Boba Fett?

This is LEGO Star Wars Battles, a new mobile game that combines competitive combat, character collecting, and tower building with the classic charm and humor of LEGO. Lead an army of LEGO Star Wars characters into real-time multiplayer PvP battles in arenas inspired by iconic locations from throughout the galaxy. Collect and upgrade characters and vehicles and craft both light and dark side armies to take into battle. Build LEGO towers on the battlefield to strategically combat, defend, and capture territory as you push toward the enemy base to claim victory.

The newly announced game allows players to visit some of the most beloved locations throughout the galaxy across different arenas, including the tropical planet of Scarif, never before shown in a LEGO Star Wars video game.

Join forces with heroes or villains, mastering both the light side or the dark side, with some never before rendered in a LEGO Star Wars video game including Rey and Kylo Ren in costumes from Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker, the First Order’s BB-9E, and a Duros rebel trooper.

Collect and upgrade over 40 units featuring characters, vehicles, and troops from Star Wars film and animation. Discover Champion characters such as Darth Vader, Boba Fett, Yoda, and more, each with a unique ability that can be triggered on the battlefield at your command. Use Darth Vader’s Force Slam to smash enemies into the ground or toss them aside with Luke Skywalker’s Force Push. Plus, support your characters with unconventional battalions including battle droids, AT-STs, Ewoks, and even a flock of porgs.

Engage in thrilling head-to-head matches against other players in a fight to destroy the enemy’s base by deploying troops onto the battlefield to claim territory and strategically utilizing Champion units and LEGO towers. With the right troops and towers, you can create an unstoppable army that will leave your enemies in pieces!

LEGO Star Wars Battles will be available in 2020 on the App Store and Google Play.
