More 2020 LEGO Marvel Superheroes Sets Rumored to Arrive This Year

We caught a glimpse of things to come for LEGO’s licensed sets during the recently concluded Nuremberg Toy Fair. And for those of you who were following this news, it was pretty obvious that LEGO is putting a tight lid on some of these licensed sets until such time their respective embargos are lifted. However, news along the grapevine suggests that there is still more to expect from LEGO’s licensed themes, particularly from its 2020 LEGO Marvel Superheroes.

LEGO Marvel Eternals

According to a report from Promobricks, we can still expect a handful of LEGO Marvel sets that are based on new subthemes or titles. We already know that a LEGO Marvel Black Widow’s Helicopter Chase (76162) is coming out in March as a tie-in set for the upcoming Black Widow spin-off MCU film, and for the second half of 2020, we will also be seeing another round of MCU-inspired sets in the form of the LEGO Marvel Eternals sets. Specifically, we can expect four (4) sets for this subtheme somewhat similar to how LEGO released tie-in sets for the Spider-Man: Far From Home film. As of now, we only know of the price of the small set, 76145, under this Marvel subtheme which is expected to retail for 9.99 Euro. We’re looking for a release date sometime in October, or earlier during the second half of this year, just in time for the marketing campaign for the film which will land in theaters in November.

2020 LEGO Marvel
MCU’s Eternals will also get the LEGO treatment, with four LEGO Marvel sets slated to be released.
LEGO Marvel Spider-Man

Other than the LEGO Marvel Spider-Man Venom Crawler (76163) whose images were recently found in LEGO servers, only to be removed afterward, we can look forward to another LEGO Spidey set to follow soon. A LEGO Marvel Spider-Man vs Venom (76151) is also expected to arrive, focusing more on the web crawler’s titular symbiote nemesis. This development is exciting at many levels because other than putting the spotlight on Venom as a LEGO set, it further confirms the eventual cinematic crossover of MCU’s Spider-Man to that of Sony’s version of Venom. The LEGO Marvel Spider-Man vs Venom (76151) set is described to feature a large brick-built black mech lizard and a smaller vehicle with shooters. The black mech lizard is obviously the centerpiece of this set akin to the Venom Crawler. However, fans will be excited to know that other than the Spider-Man, Venom, and Iron-Spider minifigures included in this set, this will be our first-ever set to feature a Spider-Ham minifigure. That certainly is interesting.

2020 LEGO Marvel
The LEGO Spider-Man Venom Crawler (76163) is slated to arrive this March.
LEGO Marvel Avengers

Loki is returning to the LEGO limelight with a new set dedicated to the mischievous Norse god. The LEGO Marvel Wrath of Loki (76152) is expected to be a substantially large 4+ set that features an Avenger Tower, a small Quinjet, and a green aircraft for Loki and five minifigures: Loki, Hulk, Thor, Iron Man, and Captain Marvel.

S.H.I.E.L.D.’s Helicarrier will also be returning in LEGO form this 2020, though in a smaller version. Tagged as set 76153, it is expected to retail for 120 Euros, significantly smaller to that of 2015’s The SHIELD Hellicarrier (76042) which retailed for $350. However, this newer version of the Hellicarrier packs a lot of minifigs, including Iron Man, Thor, Captain Marvel, Black Widow, Nick Fury, War Machine and a SHIELD Agent. War Machne is said to have a new shoulder cannon, while another Marvel villain will be coming back in LEGO form – MODOK will be returning in this set, though not in minifigure form as we first saw him in Avengers: Hulk Lab Smash (76018) back in 2014. This newer version of MODOK will be brick-built so its kind of interesting how this will turn out. This newer SHIELD Hellicarrier (76153) will come in a gray and blue color scheme, plus a blue-yellow Quinjet that can land on the Hellicarrier itself.

The LEGO Marvel Avengers: Hulk Lab Smash (76018) from 2014 features MODOK’s first-ever LEGO debut.

Other than these two sets, we can also expect three additional Avengers-inspired sets such: a new Hulkbuster (76164) which includes minifigures of Iron Rescue, and two SHIELD Agents; the previously reported Iron Man Bust (76165), and a new and larger Avengers Tower (76165) featuring seven new minifigs: Red Skull, Iron Man, Black Widow, two SHIELD Agents, and two undisclosed villains or superheroes.

To sum it up here’s what we know so far about these 2020 LEGO Marvel Superheroes sets slated to arrive this year.

  • LEGO Marvel Eternals (76154)€19.99 | October 2020 release date

LEGO Masters US Episode 1 Recap and Highlights

The pilot episode of LEGO Masters US has finally arrived last week, and our ten pairs of contestants never failed to wow viewers and LEGO fans with their awesome builds and Instagram-worthy brick creations. The rule is simple: build the grandest and most ambitious original LEGO creation in 15 hours based on an overarching theme, and see if it can tick all the boxes that the judges are looking for.

LEGO Masters US
All ten, Dream Park Theme Park creations from the first episode of LEGO Masters US. Image credit: Fox TV.

For its first episode, Will Arnett did not beat around the bush (except for an occasional joke or two) when he explained what’s at stake throughout the entire competition: a staggering $100,000 for the winning pair, a unique LEGO trophy, and the bragging rights for the first-ever LEGO Masters US. And for the first challenge, they have to impress contest judges Amy Corbett and Jamie Berard with their original Dream Park Theme Park creation with the goal of earning the elusive Golden Brick. This will grant the winner a kind of immunity that will protect them from elimination whenever they find themselves in a rough spot throughout the course of the contest.

The Golden Brick is up for grabs in the pilot episode of LEGO Masters US. Image credit: Fox TV.

Each pair of contestants went to work right away determined to create an impression with their first entry in this season. Christian & Aaron turned heads with their visually stunning Spaceland carnival and its massive Ferris wheel centerpiece. Krystle & Amie immediately knew that a Fairy Wonderland Park is the thing for them with their Flying Fairy Carousel. The LEGO-building, police and communications tandem of Mel & Jermaine opted for an Egyptian-themed Pharaoh Sands theme park. The father and son team of Manny & Nestor and their Team G Dream Adventure Mountain. Undoubtedly, one of the most elaborate builds in this episode were also delivered by Boone & Mark with their Timber Town theme park. Not to be outdone, Sam & Jessica also came up with their own mechanical rides with their candy-themed, Sugar Hill theme park. Perhaps the most technically challenging creation in this episode will be Tyler & Amy’s Funny Farm with its ‘egg drop’ silo. The Daydream theme park is a sort of throwback to brothers Travis & Corey when they used to make their own brick-built rides when they were kids. Jessie & Kara, on the other hand, found themselves in a relatively difficult situation when they decided to scrap their original plan altogether in favor of a pirate, castle, and space-themed park which they collectively dubbed Journey Through Dreams. But thankfully they managed to pull it off. Finally, we have the team of Richard & Flynn with their Spooky Town carnival ride with its bat-themed Fun House.

Christian & Aaron’s Spaceland theme park wowed the judges in this first episode of LEGO Masters US, giving them a one-time shot for immunity in the next grueling challenges of LEGO Masters US. Image via Fox TV. 

In the end, there can only be one recipient of the Golden Brick and for this episode, the immunity goes to the winning duo of Christian & Aaron with their Spaceland theme park. Manny & Nestor also teetered towards the bottom two ranks together with Sam & Jessica. The former due to an incomplete roller coaster ride that failed to impress the judges, while the latter due to a glaring technical problem with their motorized bumper cars. If Boone & Mark somehow managed to pull off the roller coaster mechanism in their Timber Town, I’m very positive that they will have a greater chance of earning that Golden Brick.

At-risk of elimination was the teams of Manny & Nestor, and Sam & Jessica. Image credit: Fox TV.

In a gladly surprising turn of events, there were no eliminations during this pilot episode. However, the stakes will be higher this Wednesday where we will get to see who among our teams will be the first to go home. Be sure to stay tuned on Fox this Wednesday at 9/8c where our contestants will be coming up with their best space-themed creation that will be later on smashed in slow motion. While waiting, be sure to keep those purchase receipts when you buy your next LEGO set to have a shot in winning through the LEGO Masters US Sweepstakes raffle.

SpaceX Falcon 9 Qualifies for the First 2020 LEGO Review Stage

LEGO fans have shown their support once again to LEGO’s space-themed sets with this recently qualified LEGO Ideas product idea. The SpaceX Falcon 9 by Lego_Aviator is now the sixth product idea to make it to the First 2020 LEGO Ideas Review Stage.

The LEGO Ideas SpaceX Falcon 9 was inspired by the two-stage transport rocket developed Elon Musk’s Space X program. Proportionally scaled to that of the LEGO Ideas NASA Apollo Saturn V (21309), this latest entry to the 10K club features a kind of modular design with its detachable Satellite and Dragon spacecraft. Here’s a closer look at the details of this LEGO product idea straight from its fan designer.

SpaceX Falcon 9 (Saturn V Scale)

Ready to grace your collections on the same scale as the recently released Saturn V set (1:110) is the SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket! Falcon 9 is a two-stage rocket designed and manufactured by Elon Musk’s SpaceX for the reliable and safe transport of satellites and the Dragon spacecraft into orbit. Falcon 9 is the first orbital-class rocket capable of re-flight and is a historic new step in humanity’s quest to explore the solar system! Re-create your own missions with this feature-rich recreation.

Features include:

  • Full-stack rocket, including detailed feed lines, landing legs, and grid fins.
  • Separable second stage with removable two-piece payload fairing.
  • Deployable grid fins and landing legs with removable support struts so you can display your model ready for liftoff or recently returned for re-use!
  • No hidden support base. The landed setup supports its own weight!

No Lego rocket collection is complete without the latest in cutting edge rocket development!

Space X Falcon 9
A side-by-side comparison of Space X Falcon 9 product idea to that of the LEGO Ideas NASA Apollo Saturn V (21309).

The SpaceX Falcon 9 product idea follows other LEGO Ideas qualifiers for the 2020 First Review Stage such as the Mary Poppins Cherry  Tree Lane, the Tesla CybertruckUntitled Goose Game, UCS Chitty Chitty Bang Bang, and The Train Station: Studgate.

What do you think about this LEGO Ideas product idea? Will it win the thumbs-up approval of the reviewers? Share your thoughts in the comments below.

LEGO Ideas The Train Station: Studgate Gets 10K Support

Another LEGO Ideas product idea qualifies for the First 2020 Review Stage. Following the initial success of Mary Poppins Cherry  Tree Lane, the Tesla Cybertruck, Untitled Goose Game, and the UCS Chitty Chitty Bang Bang,  we now have the Train Station: Studgate by Bricky_Brick as the next 10K qualifier for this review stage.

If you recall Bricky_Brick (or Pablo Jimenez in real life) is the creative genius behind the previously approved and upcoming LEGO Ideas Pirate Bay back in September from last year. He is also the creator of the LEGO Ideas History Museum which is now currently in review during the Second 2019 LEGO Review Stage. The results of this review stage are expected to come in by next week.

Pablo, as prolific builder and contributor over at the LEGO Ideas platform, has once again entered the elite circle of 10K qualifiers for the third time, getting the support of more than 10,000 members of the LEGO fan community for his Train Station: Studgate. Here’s how Pablo describes his next creation.

The Train Station: Studgate

Hello traveler, welcome to Studgate, the main station of the city and with the largest number of visitors, thousands of minifigures pass through this station every day.

Seventeenth-century concept station with new modern acquisitions, large glazing to gain more light and computer systems for ticket access.

The station has three heights, at its base an access for the first floor or terrace and the entrance with access for disabled people that leads to the platform. Once there, the platform allows access through the footbridge. For disabled people, there is a gangway system coordinated with trains to access the other side of the platform.

The glass dome (piece 2409) and the large glazed surfaces (piece 2408) are a tribute to the large space sets of the late 80s and early 90s, in this case, I have taken the liberty of making it transparent without dyes.

I also make a small tribute with the permission of the creators to a set that I have a lot of love (6601-1) Ice Cream Cart.

With some hesitation, I decided to include the train to give more gameplay and I think it’s a good option, with the train the project is at the limit of the number of pieces allowed but acquires greater value and logic for a train station.

It is a modern electric style train, with ease to adapt an engine, ease to include the wheelchair and several minifigures thanks to the folding roof.

They are 7 characters that accompany us.

1. Stationmaster:
2. Train driver
3. Girl in a wheelchair
4. Mother of the girl in the wheelchair
5. Staff on the ice cream stall
6. Carefree traveler
7. Business traveler

I can only say that I hope you like it, and if so, do not hesitate to vote for it. It will be an honor to see you pass through the station. Thank you very much for your support and confidence

Congratulations to Pablo and here’s to more exemplary builds to come!

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.

LEGO Star Wars UCS Republic Gunship Arriving Soon

A few weeks ago, LEGO Ideas launched a voting campaign to hear what LEGO Star Wars fans have to say about what they want to see as the next Ultimate Collector Series (UCS) set. There were three choices to consider and now that the votes are finally in, it looks like we will be getting a LEGO Star Wars UCS Republic Gunship anytime soon.

UCS Republic Gunship

The announcement was made over at the LEGO Ideas blogsite, where the iconic transport from the Star Wars prequels (Attack of the Clones) emerged as the top choice of more than half of those who voted. Following the Republic Gunship is the Nebulon B Escort Frigate, and the TIE Bomber.

Truth be told, I was expecting the Nebulon B to come up on top since this is a UCS set intended to be displayed with all its intricate details. Furthermore, we haven’t seen this frigate before in LEGO form so it will be nice to have a unique LEGO Star Wars set that wasn’t rehashed before. Nevertheless, since more than half of the votes were in favor of the Republic Gunship, then I guess that proves it to be more popular and appealing.

UCS Republic Gunship
The LEGO Star Wars Republic Gunship (75021) from 2013 is currently the largest LEGO tie-in version of this ship with over 1,100 pieces. A UCS version is expected to be significantly larger. 

Obviously there are no details yet on when this LEGO Star Wars UCS Republic Gunship will be arriving. My best guess is that we’re looking at either a January or May 2021 release date for that matter. As an extra surprise, those who participated in the voting process also has the chance of winning a free UCS Republic Gunship once it is released, together with a LEGO Star Wars Yoda (75255) set. Three winners will be randomly selected and will be contacted via email.

So what do you think of the upcoming LEGO Star Wars UCS Republic Gunship? Will you be looking forward to this? Let me know what you think in the comments below.

LEGO Jurassic World Summer 2020 Sets To Watch Out For

As the Nuremberg Toy Fair comes to a close, the LEGO Booth at the International Toy Fair has a few more sets to reveal. Visitors and dealers were allowed to have a sneak peek of four of the LEGO Jurassic World summer 2020 sets. Promobricks continues its coverage of the events going on at the floor of the toy fair venue. With the LEGO Harry Potter theme getting another wave of sets, LEGO is also adding more sets to its LEGO Jurassic World portfolio.

There are four sets to be expected from the summer 2020 wave of LEGO Jurassic World as reported by Promobricks, with lots of dinosaurs to go around. Please take note that the following set names are just tentative based on how toy fair visitors describe them. It may not be considered final until such time that LEGO makes an official reveal. Furthermore, these sets are inspired by the LEGO Jurassic World animated series.

LEGO Jurassic World Dr. Wu’s Laboratory (75939)

Price: €19.99 | Minifigures: 2

At 20 Euro, this set is the smallest among this wave. It features a rendering of Dr. Henry Wu’s laboratory where he breeds different kinds of dinosaurs. What fans might be interested to know is that this set also comes with new baby ankylosaurus and triceratops dino figures. There is also an Owen Grady minifigure thrown to add to that of Dr. Wu.

LEGO Jurassic World Hunt for the Gallimimus and Pteranodon (75940)

Price: €59.99 | Minifigures: 3

The LEGO Jurassic World Pteranodon Chase (75926) features a net shooter, which will also be featured in this next wave of sets.

This set features, not one, but two dino bigfigs which collectors might find interesting: a Pteranodon and a larger Gallimimus. It also comes with brick-built drones, and a vehicle equipped with a net shooter similar to how the LEGO Jurassic World Fallen Kingdom Pteranodon Chase (75926), perhaps larger.  Minifigures include Owen Grady, Claire, and a park employee.

LEGO Jurassic World House of Gyrospheres (75941)

Price: €99.99 | Minifigures: 5

The LEGO Jurassic World gyrosphere, such as seen in this Indominus Rex Breakout (75919) set, is quite ubiquitous to the theme. It will also be added again in one of the upcoming LEGO Jurassic World summer 2020 sets.

This set features a small house that serves as a launchpad for a gyrosphere. This gyrosphere is similar to what can be found in the LEGO Jurassic World Dilophosaurus Ambush (75916), Indominus Rex Breakout (75919), and Carnotaurus Gyrosphere Escape (75929). This new set also features two large dino bigfigs: an Indominus Rex and an Ankylosaurus. Minifigures include Owen, Claire, Gray, Zach, and a park employee.

LEGO Jurassic World Land and Water Hunting (75942)

Price: €29.99 | Minifigures: 2

Apparently, this is the 4+ set under this theme. It features two vehicles, namely a yellow seaplane, a quad bike, and two dinosaur figures – a Velociraptor and it’s baby counterpart.

 

These  LEGO Jurassic World summer 2020 sets are expected to arrive in stores in July 2020. In case LEGO makes an official reveal, then be sure to keep tabs with us here in our Brick Show blogsite.

LEGO Harry Potter Summer 2020 Sets at the Nuremberg Toy Fair

Promobricks is on the floor of the Nuremberg Toy Fair in Germany, and it seems that LEGO still has something up its sleeves even at the last of the International Toy Fair. As it turns out, there have been some adjustments at the LEGO Booth where several LEGO Harry Potter Summer 2020 sets have been put on display. Unfortunately, media representatives were not given the opportunity to see these sets first hand. But this did not prevent our friends to gather some info on what these new LEGO Harry Potter sets are all about.

As a word of caution, please bear in mind that these descriptions are based on non-media sources that managed to glimpse over those sets. So in this case, nothing is final until LEGO gives its official word. Here is the list of these set names, expected retail price and the minifigures included with them.

LEGO Harry Potter Room of Requirement (75966)
The Room of Requirement from The Goblet of Fire. 

Price: 19.99 Euro | Minifigures: Harry Potter,  Hermione Granger (with her Otter Patronus), Luna Lovegood (with Hare Patronus)

LEGO Harry Potter Forbidden Forest (75967)
The centaurs that inhabit the Forbidden Forest from Harry Potter Order of the Phoenix.

Price: 29.99 Euro | Minifigures: Harry Potter,  Hermione Granger, Dolores Umbridge, Two Centaurs (features a new horse base and torso, probably similar to the new mini leg part used for the minifig character of Hickory in LEGO Trolls World Tour Lonesome Flats Raft Adventure 41253). It also features a buildable Grawp, the giant and maternal half-brother of Hagrid.

LEGO Harry Potter Escape from Privet Drive (75968)
The LEGO Harry Potter Escape from Privet Drive (4728) set will have a re-release for 2020.

Price: 69.99 Euro | Minifigures: Harry Potter,  Ron Weasley, Dobby, Vernon Dursley, Petunia Dursley, and Dudley Dursley. This set is practically a re-release of set 4728 from 2002,0 now with the inclusion of the first-ever Petunia and Dudley minifigures.

LEGO Harry Potter Astronomy Tower (75969)
The Astronomy Tower scene from Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince. 

Price: 99.99 Euro | Minifigures: Harry Potter,  Hermione Granger, Ron Weasley, Draco Malfoy, Luna Lovegood, Neville Longbottom, Horace Slughorn, and Lavender Brown.

Perhaps the highlight and the largest set in this new wave of LEGO Harry Potter sets, this one will include a second minifig rendition of Horace Slughhorn since he was introduced in 2018’s Bricktober LEGO Harry Potter Minifigure Collection (5005254). Lavender Brown’s entry as a minifigure is also a recent addition in LEGO Harry Potter sets.

LEGO  Harry Potter Buildable Hedwig (75979)
Image credit via Reddit.

Price: 39.99 Euro. This is the first time that LEGO will be offering a solely buildable figure set under the Harry Potter theme. If you recall, a similar set was offered by Target in 2018 as a sweepstakes prize for their 20th Anniversary Potter Event. However, unlike that of the buildable BB-8 (75187) and Yoda (75255), this buildable Hedwig from Harry Potter was not offered for retail. I just hope that at 39.99 Euro, this will somehow be close to what Target has offered to the winner back then.

LEGO Harry Potter Advent Calendar 2020 (75981)
The LEGO Harry Potter Advent Calendar (75964) from last year. LEGO is continuing the tradition of releasing these sets, with the next LEGO Harry Potter Advent Calendar slated to be released in the last quarter of 2020. 

It is not surprising that LEGO will continue the tradition of its Advent Calendars. However, what fans of these offerings may find a bit of a let-down is the apparent price increase of this set. From the previous price of 24.99 Euro, it is now expected to retail for 29.99 Euro instead.

LEGO Harry Potter Collectible Minifigures Series 2 (71028)
Another series of LEGO Harry Potter Collectible Minifigures will arrive this September following 2018’s Series 1 (71022). 

Price: 3.99 Euro/blind bag. It is now confirmed that the LEGO Harry Potter theme will now see its second CMF series following 2018’s Series 1 (71022). We can expect a release date of sometime in September this year, with the included Harry Potter minifigure characters still kept as a closely guarded secret.

 

So far this is what we know about the LEGO Harry Potter Summer 2020 sets that were said to be revealed at the Nuremberg Toy Fair. We’ll continue to update this page once more info comes in. Thanks again to Promobricks for the heads up.

More LEGO Hidden Side Summer Sets Revealed at the Nuremberg Toy Fair

The last day of the Nuremberg Toy Fair saw even more LEGO summer sets to watch out for during the second half of the year. And it looks like LEGO is on fire when it gave toy fair participants a glimpse of its next wave of LEGO Hidden Side summer sets, considering that the second wave of this spooky-fun theme is still in the market.

Promobricks is still from Nuremberg, Germany and reveals that we can expect five additional sets under the theme, two of which will be consisting of two larger builds perhaps similar or even larger in scale, with the Newbury Haunted High School (70425) and the Paranormal Intercept Bus 3000 (70423). Read on for more details.

LEGO Hidden Side Ghost Fire Truck 3000 (70436)

Price: €70 Euro | Minifigures: 4

It is interesting to note that Promobricks describe this set as somewhat of a mech-type, capable of transforming from an assuming fire truck to a ghostly possessed mech. If this will be indeed the case, then I think this will be the first time that we will be getting a LEGO set that actually “transforms” into a mech-build.

LEGO Hidden Side Castle of Mystery (70437)

Price: €100 Euro | Minifigures: 6

The Vampyre Castle (9468) from the LEGO Monster Fighters theme may be the inspiration behind the LEGO Hidden Side Castle of Mystery. 

The Ghost Castle is expected to be the largest LEGO Hidden Side summer set in this wave. What is particularly exciting about this is the fact that it carries some similarities from LEGO’s now discontinued LEGO Monster Fighters Vampyre Castle (9468) from 2012. Eventually, the Ghost Castle will be the first-ever castle build under the LEGO Hidden Side theme.

LEGO Hidden Side J.B.’s Submarine (70433)

Price: €19.99 | Minifigures: 3 

Promobricks noted that this set is somehow similar to what you can expect from LEGO City sets. Nevertheless, it is also a nice addition to the collection of vehicles under the LEGO Hidden Side theme.

LEGO Hidden Side Supernatural Race Car (70434)

Price: €29.99 | Minifigures: 3 

The LEGO Hidden Side Supernatural Race Car (70434) will follow a hot rod design akin to this LEGO Technic Hot Rod (42022) set. 

This set follows a hot rod design in a predominantly Dark Green color scheme. At the price point of 30 Euro, it is possible that it may follow a similar scale as that of the LEGO Technic Hot Rod (42022) from 2014.

LEGO Hidden Side Abandoned Prison of Newbury (70435)

Price: €39.99 | Minifigures: 4

Another first for the Hidden Side series, this Abandoned Prison build features a few weathered, prison walls. It looks somehow incomplete, giving it a similar impression as that of the Newbury Subway (70430).

 

Please bear in mind that the set names of these LEGO Hidden Side summer sets are not yet final, and may be subject to change as LEGO see it fit. However, we can be sure that these sets will be released sometime in June. There are no official images yet, but I’ll post some updates once they come in.
