New LEGO Minecraft Summer 2021 Sets Arriving Soon

LEGO has plenty of new sets in store for this summer, and from the looks of it, there will also be a handful of LEGO Minecraft summer 2021 sets as well. Aside from giving the LEGO treatment to Minecraft Dungeons, these new sets follow the first wave of sets that LEGO released at the start of the year, as revealed by Dutch online toy store, Ottosimon.

Like other new sets, this collection of LEGO Minecraft summer 2021 sets also offers some new elements and characters. Noticeable here is the new trans clear headpiece for a Charged Creeper, plus an assortment of new Minecraft minifigures and accessories.

They are not yet listed over at LEGO Shop@Home, but we hope to see these upcoming sets anytime soon. In the meantime, check out these images.

Record-Breaking 57 Product Ideas Qualify for the First 2021 LEGO Ideas Review

They just keep on coming, and I love it! The LEGO Ideas fan submission platform has just concluded with another record-breaking high, with a total of 57 product ideas qualifying for the First 2021 LEGO Ideas Review stage, as announced over their blogsite. These 57 submissions managed to get the necessary 10,000 fan votes needed to progress for this year’s first LEGO Ideas review.

Since the start of the pandemic, the LEGO Ideas platform saw a steady increase of fan submissions, largely as a result of increased LEGO building at home. As I’ve mentioned before in a previous related article, this is a testament to how LEGO building as a hobby, turned out to be a positive outlet for most LEGO fans as we strive to cope with the series of lockdowns and stay-at-home orders.

I’ve always been a fan of LEGO Ideas, and I’ve covered and supported some of its fan submissions that eventually found their way to becoming official LEGO Ideas sets. And I also intend to continuously cover every LEGO Ideas fan submission that reaches that 10K support milestone. However, the recent influx of review stage qualifiers is just kind of hard to keep track of! I guess I just have to double down on keeping them on my radar. It will always be a pleasure to see the creativity of the LEGO fan community spring into life, so be ready with the scroll wheel because this will be a very lengthy list.

Additionally, it should be mentioned that there was a particular fan submission that didn’t make the cut even though it managed to reach 10,000 supporters. The Stadium Tour did not eventually qualify for the First 2021 LEGO Ideas Review because it failed to follow the platform’s stipulated guidelines, particularly on “intellectual properties”.

As a last note, the Third 2020 LEGO Ideas Review Stage is about to be concluded, with the announcement of the winner slated to happen sometime this summer. We have to wait a lit bit more to see which among the 25 qualifiers in this particular review stage will go on to become an official LEGO Ideas set. For now, let’s take a look at what these new 57 product qualifiers for the First 2021 LEGO Ideas Review Stage has to offer. Which is your personal favorite? Let us know in the comments below.

LEGO Super Mario Fuzzy & Mushroom Platform (30389) Polybag Revealed

It looks like Luigi will be accompanied by his first LEGO polybag expansion set. After the reveal of the LEGO Super Mario  Adventures with Luigi (71387), now comes another polybag in the Nintendo-inspired series. Similar to its predecessors, the LEGO Super Mario Fuzzy & Mushroom Platform (30389) offers a sort of expansion for the starter course set, with plenty of various elements and buildable figures.

LEGO Super Mario Fuzzy & Mushroom Platform

The catch though is that it might be a sort of third-party retailer exclusive as reported by Brickfanz. LEGO Super Mario fans in the UK may obtain this polybag as a sort of a gift-with-purchase set particularly over at Zavvi, GAME, and Smyths Toys. I’m not 100% sure if this will eventually land in the US, but it is most likely that the LEGO Super Mario Fuzzy & Mushroom Platform (30389) polybag will find its way to US LEGO Stores in the near future.

Coming in at 39 pieces, this latest polybag includes a scannable tile, a buildable Fuzzy character, and other obstacle course elements.

This polybag joins the rest of the LEGO Super Mario 2021 sets that have been revealed already. And in case you missed it, you may want to check out the rest of these offerings over at LEGO Shop@Home, or by clicking on the following affiliate links below.

LEGO Super Mario Adventures With Luigi (71387) Now Available for Pre-Order

Earlier this week, LEGO Nintendo fans were delighted to discover that Luigi will be finally making his LEGO debut with an entirely new Starter Course of his own. And this time around, LEGO has finally confirmed that the LEGO Super Mario Adventures with Luigi Starter Course (71387) is now up for pre-order and will be available in the US starting August 1, 2021.

LEGO Super Mario Adventures With Luigi

Amazon China was the first one to break the news by having the LEGO Super Mario Adventures with Luigi (71387) listed on their site. And this time around, LEGO has given us our official product description of the set, retailing for $59.99 and clocking in at 280 pieces. It features an all-new LEGO Luigi interactive figure with all the interactive capabilities of its predecessor including an LCD screen, speaker, and Bluetooth connectivity. The set also includes brick-built versions of a Bone Goomba, Boom Boom, and a Pink Yoshi. And like the LEGO Super Mario Adventures With Mario Starter Course (71360), the LEGO Luigi figure digitally interacts with special LEGO printed tile elements for a more engaging play experience.

Check out the complete product description below and you may also pre-order this set now by clicking on the following affiliate link below.

LEGO Super Mario Adventures With Luigi (71387) Arriving This Summer

It looks like Luigi will now finally get the LEGO treatment that he deserves. Thanks to Amazon China, we can now confirm the arrival of a LEGO Super Mario Adventures with Luigi (71387) starter pack sometime this summer.

LEGO Super Mario Adventures With Luigi

The new LEGO Super Mario set places Luigi front and center, with his own brick-built obstacle course that rivals that of his older twin brother. Similar to its predecessor, the LEGO Super Mario Adventures with Mario (71360), this new set offering features an interactive version of Luigi complete with all the sensors, LCD screen, and Bluetooth connectivity similar to his LEGO sibling. Though this Luigi-inspired set offers similar functionality to that of Adventures with Mario, my initial impression is that the former is a bit larger and offers brick-built versions of a Bone Goomba, Pink Yoshi, and a Koopa.

LEGO Super Mario Adventures With Luigi

As of this posting, LEGO has not yet listed this set over at LEGO Shop@Home. And since this new LEGO Super Mario set has now been revealed via a third-party retailer with a release date of July 2021, we can most likely expect an official LEGO.com listing soon. It is also worthwhile to note that this particular set is just one of the nine new LEGO Super Mario sets that are slated to debut in 2021, showing how intentional LEGO is in further developing this licensed theme.

Thanks to The Brick Fan for the heads up.

LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga Delayed Once Again

I guess we have to wait a little longer for this one. In a not-so-very-surprising turn of events, it looks like the much anticipated LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga video game will be delayed once again. And of course, we can’t blame game developer TT Games for this pandemic-stricken situation.

After almost a year when news came out of a possible August 2020 release date, it seems that the journey from studio to console will have to wait a tad longer. The announcement came via TT Games’ official Twitter account which you can see below:

It is reasonable to assume that the LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga is now in its final development stages. But since this pandemic has gotten a lot of projects derailed in the video game industry, it is clearly forgivable that delays like this are bound to happen. We’re not just sure yet where exactly this video game stands in terms of releasing, whether it is still being polished with the possible inclusion of an upcoming Star Wars The Bad Batch tie-in, or it’s a matter of logistical issues.

LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga is hailed to be THE largest, galaxy-spanning Star Wars video game that LEGO has ever come up with. And with every known major LEGO Star Wars character reportedly coming to the game as a playable avatar set in a massive open world in a galaxy far away, the potential and excitement for this game are very much expected.  This game also comes in a Deluxe Edition which you can find over at Amazon and will be available for all major consoles and the PC via Steam.

Are you planning to get this game despite of its delays? Let me know what you think in the comments below.

LEGO Celebrates the LEGO Universe 10th Year Anniversary With a Remastered Soundtrack

It has been more than a decade since we saw LEGO’s first attempt to enter the MMOG (massively multiplayer online game) arena. When the LEGO Universe opened its virtual doors to the world, it made sure that players will not just have an immersive open-world sort of experience but a great soundtrack as well. And though LEGO Universe was eventually shut down in just less than 2 years, fans of the first LEGO online game will never forget the power of its music and the genius behind it. To celebrate this musical milestone, LEGO has now released a LEGO Universe 10th year anniversary playlist that features the game’s remastered soundtrack arranged by acclaimed composes Bryan Tyler.

You can listen to the LEGO Universe 10th year anniversary soundtrack through the following video. What is neat about this video/soundtrack is that it also features several video clips, concept arts, and behind-the-scenes footage of the game itself. It’s like listening to a great album while watching a documentary at the same time.

Here’s the LEGO Group’s official press statement on this commemorative soundtrack. You can also find this soundtrack on Spotify and other music and podcast streaming platforms.

THE LEGO GROUP MARKS TENTH ANNIVERSARY OF LEGO® UNIVERSE WITH REMASTERED AND NEVER BEFORE RELEASED SOUNDTRACK

Released to coincide with Hollywood composer Brian Tyler’s appearance on LEGO Games’ Bits N’ Bricks podcast.

Billund, February 24th, 2021: In December, the LEGO Group marked the 25th anniversary of its first-ever video game with the release of the popular Bits N’ Bricks podcast series. Today, the company marks another important date with the release of the fully remastered LEGO® Universe (Original Game Soundtrack) to purchase and streaming for the first time ever. The soundtrack is accompanied by three episodes of the Bits N’ Bricks podcast looking back at the game’s development, with today’s episode focusing on conversations with composer Brian Tyler, producer Richard Dekkard, as well as a brief visit from the voice of LEGO Universe: Sir Patrick Stewart.

LEGO Universe was the company’s first-ever massively multiplayer online game launched in October 2010, with a soundtrack composed by Brian Tyler and additional music by John Harman and Richard Dekkard. Now a celebrated Hollywood composer, Tyler has composed soundtracks for huge blockbuster smashes including Avengers: Age of Ultron and Iron Man 3. The soundtrack to LEGO Universe was the first video game soundtrack he composed following soundtracks for classic films like Constantine and The Lazarus Project. It was created with the Slovak National Symphony Orchestra, but due to scheduling constraints, Tyler ended up overseeing the entire recording live from a studio in Los Angeles using video and audio streaming between the countries.

The LEGO Universe theme went on to be used at the entrance at LEGOLAND® parks across the globe and proved to be very popular with fans. Despite its popularity, the soundtrack has never been available to purchase or stream until now.

As the landmark anniversary approached, Tyler and Dekkard came together to completely remaster the score, which the LEGO Group is proud to be releasing today (Wednesday, February 24th) across popular digital music stores and streaming services. The album will also be available on YouTube featuring a special behind-the-scenes video retrospective. Patrick Stewart, who served as narrator for the game, will also appear in this video.

On the remaster, Tyler said: “I’m really proud of the music and I’m proud of the game. I am asked all the time ‘Is it going to be available? and earnestly thought to myself ‘I hope it is!’ I really wanted that for the fans, so I was not going to miss a beat in terms of helping get this out there to the world.”

To hear more about LEGO Universe’s inception, creation, launch, and eventual closure, as well as other key moments in the LEGO Group’s long, rich history in digital play and video games listen to the Bits N’ Bricks podcast. Hosted by journalist Brian Crecente and documentarian Ethan Vincent, the podcast draws on over 120 interviews and explores the many facets of LEGO gaming, from unreleased projects to beloved masterpieces.

Look out for it on all popular podcast platforms, the LEGO Games anniversary website, and YouTube.

 

On a similar note, be sure to also check the latest LEGO Vidiyo sets that are coming soon in March. LEGO Vidiyo is the latest music and tech-powered theme that combines physical LEGO bricks and the company’s top-notch AR or augmented reality tech. But beyond the tech wow factor, LEGO Vidiyo allows younger LEGO fans to explore and create their own music while virtually interacting with a colorful and fun bunch of LEGO Vidiyo Bandmates.   Be sure to check this new wave of LEGO sets over at LEGO Shop@Home.

LEGO Ideas Second 2020 Review Stage Results Are Finally In

The LEGO Ideas Review Board has finally released the results for its LEGO Ideas Second 2020 Review Results, including a final decision on a project that took a considerable amount of time to be evaluated. These sets were chosen as the next official LEGO Ideas sets among a record-breaking 35 product ideas submitted between May to September of 2020. These proposals managed to get the support of more than 10,000 LEGO fans who wished to see them translated into an actual LEGO product.

The announcement came earlier today through LEGO Engagement Manager Hasan Jansen and LEGO Associate Marketing Manager Piangward Kate Jarupakorn. You can watch their full announcement right here.

First off, among 35 fan submissions evaluated during the LEGO Ideas Second 2020 Review Stage, the honor of being the next official LEGO set has been awarded to Truman Cheng’s (aka legotruman) brick rendition of a timeless masterpiece – Vincent van Gogh: The Starry Night. 

It will be interesting to see how this classic painting will be translated into LEGO bricks especially considering that LEGO has now introduced its LEGO Art series. However, considering that the building techniques employed by Truman in his approved fan submission do not utilize the same kind of pixelated style of the LEGO Arts series, then it will be interesting to see how the LEGO Ideas design team will eventually finalize it as a set. I hope that they will stay true to the concept and building techniques seen in the original submission.

Just a side note – though I’m happy that The Starry Night eventually received a thumb’s up from the review board, I can’t help but wonder why none of the other 34 entries were selected. Like what other LEGO fans have noted, there are other 10K qualifiers in this roster that is quite popular among fans for references to pop culture icons. It will be nice to see for example an official LEGO set for Nintendo’s Animal Crossing considering its playability and appeal to adult and younger LEGO fans alike, or perhaps a set dedicated to the Greendale Community College based on 2009’s hit series Community. I’m sure that there are other worthy candidates from this pool of 35 submissions, and it’s a bit disappointing to see that only 1 was ultimately selected. Perhaps the LEGO Ideas Review Board needs to cut some corners considering the sheer number of approved projects still in development? I really don’t know, so it will be nice if the review team will provide more details on their decision.

But if there is any consolation that the LEGO Ideas Second 2020 Review Stage has to offer to LEGO fans, is the fact that the Blue Blur is back and just in time for his 30th birthday. We first saw his official minifig in the now-discontinued LEGO Dimensions Sonic the Hedgehog Level Pack (71244) from 2016. And just in case you missed out on him, having an official LEGO Ideas Sonic Mania: Green Hill Zone set along with other iconic characters of the Sonic the Hedgehog franchise is certainly most welcomed. I missed out on the first LEGO Sonic minifigure, and I will certainly not miss my next opportunity to get this one.

The conclusion of the LEGO Ideas Second 2020 Review Stage now brings a total of 7 approved projects currently in development:

And while waiting for these approved projects to roll out in LEGO stores shortly, the LEGO Ideas review team already has its hands full for the Third 2020 review cycle with its total of 25 qualifying entries.

So what do you think of the outcome of LEGO Ideas Second 2020 Review Stage? Are you happy with the results? Let me know what you think in the comments below.

And the 150th LEGO BrickHeadz Set Will Be…

Last month, the LEGO Ideas platform has launched another fan activity that celebrates the upcoming release of the 150th LEGO BrickHeadz set. Fans of the brick-built collectible theme were given a chance to vote for the next BrickHeadz, coming from four pre-determined candidate themes.

As of this writing, there are currently more than 100 BrickHeadz that were already released, and it will definitely take some time before we see the likes of the 150th LEGO BrickHeadz set. And to make the voting process even more fun, the LEGO Ideas Team has rolled out four likely candidates that will be given the honor to mark such an occasion: Lilo & Stitch, Minecraft, Jaws, and Star Wars.

I have to say that I was excited about the idea of finally seeing an official, brick-built Stitch set (which somehow almost made it to the cut with Tyler’s LEGO Stitch product idea). But this being a majority vote among 13,000 LEGO fans who participated, the honor of being the 150th LEGO BrickHeadz set is now reserved for yet another LEGO Star Wars BrickHeadz set. That’s how democracy works I presume, even if you don’t particularly like the outcome.

The 150th LEGO BrickHeadz set will feature a Star Wars character.

Currently, the Stars Wars subtheme of the LEGO BrickHeadz series is by far the most represented theme in the said genre – with 16 LEGO Star Wars BrickHeadz sets under its belt. I guess that’s a testament to how popular this LEGO subtheme is among the majority of the brick-loving masses.

It is also interesting to note that LEGO may also be continuing its trend of offering official brick renditions of some of the most popular pop-icons of our generation, similar to the likes of LEGO BrickHeadz pairs such as that of Marty MacFly and Doc Brown (41611), and Peter Venkman and Slimer (41622).  And bringing the possibility of having a LEGO Jaws set on the table is quite revealing on the part of LEGO. Does it mean that LEGO has something in the works coming from this direction? We just have to wait and see.

In the meantime, we might need to wait a little longer before we can see the 150th LEGO BrickHeadz set under the Star Wars theme. And with so many present and future Star Wars candidates to choose from, it will be quite a challenge for LEGO to zero-in on the best SW character to fill in the commemorative spot.

So who do you think from the galaxy far, far away will be honored as the 150th LEGO BrickHeadz set? Which Star Wars characters do you think will eventually win this title? Or are you even happy with the results? Let us know what you think in the comments below.

LEGO Introduces New LEGO Super Mario 2021 Sets

Earlier today, the LEGO Group has officially announced its second wave of Nintendo-inspired interactive building sets. Its new LEGO Super Mario 2021 sets will launch on January 1, 2021, and will be consisting of a new Maker Set, three Expansion Packs, two, Power-Up packs and an entirely new line of Character Packs to collect.

I like the concept behind the LEGO Super Mario Master Your Adventure maker set. It functions as a sort of creative toolbox, together with its Customization Machine. It allows children (and adult fans alike) to include additional responses to the main LEGO Super Mario figure, thanks to the Maker Set’s new special bricks and Start Pipe.

LEGO Super Mario 2021

The new expansion and character packs also include additional brick-built Super Mario characters not seen before in its first wave LEGO Super Mario offerings. I love how the Tanooki Mario costume turned out, while the second wave of Character Packs from this offering will surely pass as a great collectible in this series.

The relatively new LEGO Super Mario theme has expanded significantly since its introduction early this year. As of to date, the theme already has more than 25 sets under its belt and still counting.

For more info, you may check out LEGO’s official press release right here. I’ll update this post once their respective links go live over at LEGO Shop@Home. In the meantime, check out the following product images below for these new LEGO Super Mario 2021 sets, and let me know what you think of them in the comments below.
