LEGO BrickHeadz Star Wars Kylo Ren & Sith Trooper (75232) Now Available at LEGO Shop@Home

News along the brick pipes a few weeks ago made mention of another pair of LEGO BrickHeadz Star Wars set that ties up with the epic conclusion of the Skywalker saga. In fact, the LEGO BrickHeadz Star Wars Kylo Ren &  Sith Trooper (75232) dual pack were even spotted on some store shelves early in September – almost a month before its scheduled debut for Triple Force Friday.

Kylo Ren & Sith Trooper (75232)

For those who were not fortunate enough to catch this set in September, then you might be pleased to know that LEGO Shop@Home has already listed the Kylo Ren and Sith Trooper (75232) dual pack and is available for purchase for $19.99 USD. The set comes in at 240 pieces and features a meaner version of Kylo with his roughly restored helmet together with an equally menacing, blood-red version of the infamous Sith Trooper. This is the second BrickHeadz version of the wayward Ben Solo, with the first being a part of another dual pack released two years ago in the LEGO BrickHeadz Star Wars Rey & Kylo Ren (41489).

Read on for the full product description of the LEGO BrickHeadz Star Wars Kylo Ren &  Sith Trooper (75232), together with some official images.

New LEGO Speed Champions Set for 2020 Revealed

A new LEGO Speed Champions set that will debut in the first quarter of 2020 has just been revealed. The LEGO Speed Champions Formula E Panasonic Jaguar Racing GEN2 Car & Jaguar I-PACE eTROPHY (76898) is a dual-pack set that features two of Jaguar’s latest innovation in electric vehicle technology in partnership with the Panasonic Jaguar Racing team. The LEGO Speed Champions reveal also coincide with the latter’s announcement of their new Formula E I-TYPE 4 race car, while the Jaguar I-PACE underscores the company’s latest all-electric SUV to be marketed to the public in direct competition with Tesla’s Model X.

According to a report from The Brothers Brick, this latest new LEGO Speed Champions set will feature a first-ever 8-stud wide design for the series which significantly improves the design and model accuracy of the theme. All Speed Champions sets as of to date follow a 6-stud wide design which makes them look narrower as compared to their real-life counterparts. This new design also allows for the creation of a new LEGO element – such as a huge 6×12 modified plate – to accommodate the adjustment in size. This also allows two minifigures (in the case of the I-PACE brick model) to be seated in front for a more realistic brick rendition. Other new elements also include 3×2 wedge plates and 6-stud wide windscreen.

New LEGO Speed Champions Set

Looking at the set’s box art, I can say that the new 8-stud design is a significant improvement in the LEGO Speed Champions series. It introduces a new length-to-width ratio that comes closer to how these LEGO versions accurately represent their real-life vehicle counterparts. I just hope that this will be the same for all upcoming Speed Champions sets in 2020.

There are no details yet as of the moment regarding this new LEGO Speed Champions set’s piece count and retail price, but we can expect more info and additional images to be revealed in the coming weeks. The LEGO Speed Champions Formula E Panasonic Jaguar Racing GEN2 Car & Jaguar I-PACE eTROPHY (76898) is slated to be released on January 1, 2020. Be sure to check with LEGO Shop@Home for the rest of the currently available LEGO Speed Champions sets.

LEGO DC Comics Superheroes CMF Series Confirmed

A few weeks ago, we reported some bit of smoke coming from the rumor mill that a LEGO DC Comics Superheroes CMF is somewhat on its way. Truth be told, the news of such a possibility has been floating around for quite some time. And not until earlier today that evidence of such a rumor has actually been corroborated, well, from unofficial channels.

A quick #legoleaks search over at Instagram will show you that some images of these purported CMF series have already been released. Like before, we are not in liberty to show you these images here on our blog site, but if you don’t mind some spoilers, then I suggest that you read on.

As of press time, we can confirm that 7 from these LEGO DC Comics Superheroes CMF has already been revealed which seems to include a collection of comic book characters that represent both classic and contemporary versions of well-known DC heroes and villains. Considering that this upcoming LEGO CMF series is slated to be released early in 2020, then we can expect more images (aka leaks) to be out in the upcoming weeks.

For starters, we have the following confirmed DC characters in this next wave of LEGO CMF:

Classic Sinestro (in an earlier black and blue uniform)

LEGO DC Comics Superheroes CMF

 

Stargirl

LEGO DC Comics Superheroes CMF

 

Metamorpho

LEGO DC Comics Superheroes CMF

 

Simon Baz

LEGO DC Comics Superheroes CMF

 

Classic Cyborg (breaking free from what looks like a purple chain from the classic comics)

 

Huntress

 

Classic Batman

 

Feel free to comment below if you think I missed out on any particular detail that these minifigs might have. They’re impressive actually, and I’m excited to see the rest of the DC characters that LEGO added to this latest CMF. We already have the LEGO Batman Movie CMF Series 1 and Series 2 which in themselves have introduced a fair number of DC characters in LEGO minifig form. So having a new CMF line that is entirely dedicated to DC Comics is a welcomed move that will expand our collection of LEGO DC superheroes minifigures.  I’ll update this post as more info comes in so I hope you’ll stay tuned.

LEGO Technic Top Gear Set Coming in 2020

An interesting piece of news came out this morning, and it’s telling us that LEGO is adding another licensed set in its portfolio. To begin with, LEGO is no stranger in the automotive field with an impressive list of LEGO Technic sets that highlight the most sophisticated vehicles around such as the upcoming LEGO Technic Land Rover Defender (42110) and the superbly elegant Bugatti Chiron (42083). From the looks of it, LEGO is pushing the envelope once more by partnering with one of television’s longest-running, and high-adrenalin motoring entertainment program. BBC Studios just published a press release earlier today underscoring the venture that the British TV company and The LEGO Group will jointly undertake. Based on one of its highly popular series, BBC’s Top Gear will now have a LEGO set of its own, a LEGO Technic Top Gear set to be exact. According to License Global, this collaborative set is expected to launch in early 2020.

LEGO Technic Top Gear

Details about this new set are understandably scant as of this time, but from what we can glean from the press release, this LEGO Technic Top Gear set will definitely feature a distinctive, action-packed model that is reflective of the show’s fast-paced and stunt-filled sequences. There is no exact date given on when this set will be released, but we can somehow expect it to be officially revealed during the first quarter of 2020. Here’s BBC Studio’s complete press release for your reference.

LEGO Star Wars Triple Force Friday Promos Announced

LEGO Shop@Home has been recently updated to include a handful of Triple Force Friday promos that you may find attractive. Aside from the new LEGO sets that are based on the upcoming The Rise of Skywalker film and Disney+’s The Mandalorian, all of which are slated to be officially released on October 4, LEGO is spicing up our next brick purchase with these nice promos.

First off, we have the exclusive gift-with-purchase LEGO Star Wars Battle of Endor 20th Anniversary Edition (40362) set. This GWP set will be automatically added to your cart both in-store and online for a minimum qualifying purchase of LEGO Star Wars products worth $75 USD or more. Expect this freebie to be hugely popular, and with a relatively short window of opportunity to get this 197-piece commemorative brick diorama, I’m pretty sure supplies will run out fast.

Double VIP points are a somewhat regular staple of LEGO promotions. However, what we are excited to know about are which LEGO Star Wars sets will entitle you to those precious double VIP points. And on top of that, LEGO will also offer its usual price cuts on some selected LEGO Star Wars sets from October 4 to 6. Do take note that historically, these heavily discounted LEGO Star Wars sets usually runs out even during the initial hours of Force Friday deals. It will be helpful to keep a close eye on LEGO Shop@Home if you wish to bag that long-awaited LEGO set that you have kept on your radars. I’m not sure as of this moment which LEGO Star Wars sets will carry the Triple Force Friday discounts, but I’m somewhat hoping LEGO will include those larger, hard-to-find sets such as the LEGO Star Wars UCS Millennium Falcon (75192), the LEGO Star Wars Tantive IV (75244) or the LEGO Star Wars UCS Y-Wing Starfighter (75181).

Triple Force Friday

And finally, for those of you who are looking forward to having your Triple Force Friday purchases in-stores, then LEGO has a special treat for all loyal store visitors. An In-Store Make and Take micro build of a Luke Skywalker Timeline will be given away to participants. Like other LEGO Store make and take events, expect that this promo may require pre-registration so be sure to drop by at the nearest LEGO brand store in your area.

Triple Force Friday

Be sure to check back with us for more info on these LEGO Star Wars Triple Force Friday deals. I’ll keep you posted once these promos go live next week.

LEGO Star Wars Battle of Hoth – 20th Anniversary Edition (40333) Promo Back in LEGO Shop@Home in Europe

Earlier this year, LEGO Star Wars fans in the US had a blast with LEGO’s May the 4th Be With You promos which included an exclusive freebie, the LEGO Star Wars Battle of Hoth – 20th Anniversary Edition (40333). This commemorative LEGO set was given for free for every single-receipt, qualifying LEGO Star Wars purchases worth $75 USD and above. I’m not really sure if this promotional was made available back then in other parts of the globe, particularly in Europe. But in case your in the European region as you’re reading this and you missed out on this limited-edition LEGO set, then you might notice already that it has been appearing in your LEGO Shop@Home cart if your LEGO Star Wars purchases have totalled  £75/€75 and more.

LEGO Star Wars Battle of Hoth LEGO Star Wars Battle of Hoth

LEGO fans in the UK, France, Germany, Denmark, Italy, Spain, Ireland, and the rest of Europe have until October 3 before the launch of Triple Force Friday to avail of the LEGO Star Wars Battle of Hoth promotional item. On top of this, you might know already that one of the LEGO Star Wars promos for Triple Force Friday is the similarly scaled diorama of the LEGO Star Wars Battle of Endor – 20th Anniversary Edition (40362) which will go live just after midnight of October 3. If you’re looking forward to having these sets, then it’s imperative that you plan your next LEGO Star Wars purchase thoroughly.

Other than these collectible freebies, Triple Force Friday will see the return of Double VIP points and huge price cuts on select LEGO Star Wars sets. LEGO Star Wars fans in the US will also have the opportunity of making the most out of the Triple Force Friday midnight sales of October 3 at LEGO Stores in various Disneyland locations.

Again, if you intend to have the LEGO Star Wars Battle of Hoth commemorative set then be sure to make that purchase before October 3. May the brick force be with you.

A Look at LEGO Toys R Us Bricktober Promos in Asia

If there is one thing that is sorely missed by LEGO fans from the now virtually defunct Toys R Us, are the various LEGO promos that the mega toy store launches at this time of the year. Dubbed as LEGO Toys R Us Bricktober promos, this LEGO TRU promotional offers a buying incentive to LEGO fans who will make their LEGO purchases at TRU during specified weeks in the month of October. After TRU’s demise in the first quarter of 2018, LEGO fans have a lot to get used to particularly with the fact that the annual LEGO Toys R Us Bricktober promos will no longer be around. Indeed, one may say that there were still last year’s LEGO TRU Bricktober Marvel, Harry Potter, and Jurassic World exclusive collectible minifigures promo. But their very limited release and the relative difficulty of obtaining them gave the impression that LEGO may just be getting rid of these promotional minifigs which the company has already prepared way before Toys R Us in the US eventually closed.

However, this may not be the case with other regional Toys R Us branches in other parts of the globe. Essentially, these TRU branches are independent of their US counterpart, and LEGO fans in these regions may still be able to enjoy their annual LEGO TRU Bricktober promos. Brickfinder reports that in Asia, it can be seen that Bricktober is still alive and kicking. In particular, TRU stores in Hong Kong, Singapore, Malaysia, Thailand, Taiwan and the Philippines are still carrying the highly popular promotions.

This year’s LEGO Toys R Us Bricktober regional promo features a mini-scaled diorama of the four seasons, highlighting certain places and attractions in the Asian region. In case you need to know, here are the following dates when these Bricktober sets will be available in the abovementioned participating countries, including the price points for qualifying purchases converted in USD based on prevailing foreign exchange rates.

It’s great to hear that even though LEGO Toys R Us promos are basically dead in the US, there are other TRU Asian stores that still carry the sought-after LEGO promotional. Unless you are currently residing in these territories, then for LEGO fans outside of Southeast Asia, these Bricktober sets will most probably be available in secondary markets such as eBay.
