This LEGO Harley Davidson Mini-Build Make and Take Event is Happening in China

It looks like LEGO fans in China will get a lot of LEGO love this month. After yesterday’s reveal of the LEGO Creator Expert Harley-Davidson Fatboy (10269), it looks like this set will have a LEGO Harley-Davidson mini-build version that will be given away as a make and take promotional across Chinese  LEGO stores.

Thanks to a tip from StoneWars, we learned that this make-and-take promotional build was announced via the Chinese social media platform WeChat. To make the deal more enticing, it was also revealed that only 3,000 copies of this LEGO Harley-Davidson mini-build will be released for those who will be getting its larger LEGO Creator Expert counterpart. LEGO fans who will purchase the LEGO Creator Expert Harley-Davidson Fatboy (10269) set will receive a coupon that will entitle them to participate for the make-and-take building event.

Additionally, LEGO fans in China will also have the opportunity to meet and greet Mike Psiaki – the LEGO Designer behind this awesome big bike rendition. In case you’re in the area and are planning to get this set together will all its perks, then be sure to drop by at any of these LEGO Stores in China during the following dates:

  • July 17: LEGO Brand Retail, Shanghai People’s Square
  • July 20: LEGO Brand Retail, Shanghai Disneytown
  • July 21: LEGO Brand Retail, Beijing Wangfujin

I have to say that this mini-build version is spot on, with its orange and white background and stand. Though I strongly feel that the Harley-Davidson logo is rendered as a sticker, it is still an excellent display model nonetheless. I just hope that this promo will find its way to other regional LEGO stores worldwide for everyone to enjoy.

The LEGO Creator Expert Harley-Davidson Fatboy (10269) is slated for a LEGO VIP release on July 17, and for the general public on August 1. It comes in at 1,023 pieces, retailing for $99.99 USD.

Here’s A Sneek Peek at the LEGO Ideas Tree House (21318)

By now, the internet is rife with a handful of images of the next LEGO Ideas set to watch out for. If you recall back in October last year, the LEGO Ideas Treehouse project was approved for production together with the recent LEGO Ideas Flintstones (21316) set. However, the former’s release date was pushed further to give way to another Ideas set which is the classic Steamboat Willie (21317)Now thanks to a certain reader and follower of the LEGO German fan site, Promobricks, we now have our first look at what to expect from the impressively huge LEGO Ideas Treehouse (21318). Before we dive in, I guess a disclaimer is in order – according to Promobricks, these images were sent by a certain Roger from Belgium who claims to have bought this set at a Dreamland Toy Store in his country. So with that in mind, I guess all is fair game when it comes to sharing these box art images. So let’s take a look.

LEGO Ideas Treehouse (21318)

What impresses me about this set other than being in an almost minifig scale, is the vast array of new leaf elements that are available for the builder. I love how the leaves of the tree can be changed to reflect the seasons (autumn to be exact) using these new LEGO elements. The LEGO Ideas Treehouse (21318) also features a removable canopy and roof that reveals the intricate details of the tree’s various rooms. I’m sure that we’ll better appreciate this set once LEGO releases its official, hi-res images.

The set is believed to be scheduled for a VIP release date later this month, with a regular release date of August. It comes in at 3,036 pieces making it one of the largest LEGO sets out there. It is also expected to retail for 199 Euros or roughly at $200 USD. Thanks once again to our friends from Promobricks for sharing these images.

Exclusive LEGO DC Comics Zebra Batman SDCC 2019 Minifigure Revealed

After unveiling its first SDCC 2019 minifigure exclusive a couple of weeks ago, LEGO has now revealed its next event-exclusive minifig via Twitter. The LEGO DC Comics Zebra Batman is the second SDCC 2019 exclusive offering following the Spider-Man Advanced Suit. This yet another version of the Dark Knight takes its cue from the Detective Comics Issue #275 released in January of 1960 and will be available to all SDCC 2019 attendees on July 20 through a randomized instant-win lottery.

In the comics, Zebra-Batman, aside from his rather weird appearance, was imbued with magnetic powers that he received from the same machine that powered the supervillain Zebra-Man.

In case you need to know, this latest iteration of Batman in a trippy kind of suit is the 77th LEGO minifig rendition of the Caped Crusader in minifigure form and the second LEGO SDCC exclusive offering since 2008. So what do you think of the LEGO DC Comics Zebra Batman? Do you think its a good call from LEGO to have such an exclusive? Let me know your comments below.

LEGO Reveals New 2020 LEGO Star Wars Sets In Time for SDCC

In addition to the new LEGO Marvel Avengers Hulk Helicopter Drop (76144) that LEGO will showcase at this year’s San Diego Comic-Con, the company has revealed two new 2020 LEGO Star Wars sets that will also be displayed at the event. It looks like LEGO will be throwing in a pair of new sets that calls back on some of the most memorable opening scenes from the very first Star Wars movie ever made: Episode IV: A New Hope.

Both sets render these opening scenes as we fondly remember them. The first one being Obi-Wan’s Hut (75270) which comes in at 200 pieces, and features minifigures of Obi-Wan, Luke Skywalker, R2-D2, and a Tusken Raider. Unique to this set is a new microfigure of Princess Leia’s hologram which she used to send a distress signal to Obi-Wan.

The second set is another classic call back with Luke Skywalker’s Landspeeder (75271). To be frank, this is the fourth Star Wars Luke Landspeeder that LEGO has released over the years since the theme’s inception in 1999. So for some, this may no longer come as a surprise. However, this new set boasts of having more details than its predecessors and also features the minifig versions of Luke with a new blaster rifle clip, C-3PO, and a Jawa with his buildable cave hideout.

Read on for the rest of the product descriptions for these new 2020 LEGO Star Wars sets, both of which will be available to the public starting January 1 next year. If you’re happening to drop by at SDCC from July 18 to 21, then be sure to check out these sets to be displayed at the LEGO Booth. Thanks to The Brothers Brick for the tip.
