The LEGO BrickHeadz Seasonal Easter Chick (40350) First Official Images Released

Third-party German LEGO store site Brickmerge has updated its listing to now include a closer look at the second BrickHeadz set following this year’s Valentine Puppy (40349). Though there is no further description given, the images for the LEGO BrickHeadz Seasonal Easter Chick (40350) kind of speak for itself. Coming in at a vibrant yellow color scheme, the BrickHeadz Seasonal Easter Chick (40350) also has its share of interesting LEGO pieces. Of particular interest to me are the purple and yellow minifigure heads used for the flowers, plus the egg pieces that usually comes with these kinds of seasonal sets.

As mentioned, we don’t have any further information beyond these images such as the Easter Chick’s piece count and date of availability. However, we can expect it to come with a $9.99 price tag to be available sometime towards the end of February similar to previously released sets. The LEGO BrickHeadz Seasonal Easter Chick (40350) is also joined by other soon-to-be-revealed seasonal sets such as the Ghost (40351), and Reindeer, Elf, and Elfie (40353). The LEGO BrickHeadz Valentine’s Puppy (40349) on the other hand is now available at shop.LEGO.com just in case you want to take a look.

Thanks to Promobricks for the heads up.

The LEGO Movie 2 Emmet’s Pod Revealed

After the reveal of a LEGO Movie 2 Minifigure Pack, it looks like the LEGO Movie 2 will also get its own promotional pod, thanks to this image shared by eagle-eyed LEGO fan, the_real_fcl. Based on its actual blister packaging, The LEGO Movie 2 Emmet’s Pod also has a lenticular sticker common to other LEGO promotional pods. To be clear, I’m not really sure if this is considered as a promotional item since the Instagram post does not mention its availability, or where it was spotted.

The LEGO Movie 2 Emmet’s Pod features Emmet of course (I think we’re getting too much of Emmet already), and a minibuild crane built inside the pod. It somehow deviates from the typical LEGO pods that we have seen so far since those previously released by LEGO portrays characters like Darth Vader, Batman, Zane, and Lloyd just to name some in a home-like pod that includes an interesting collection of minifig accessories. However, with the LEGO Movie 2 Emmet’s Pod, we see the ever composed master builder in his typical day of work, converting the pod into a sort of a mini construction site. I personally feel that it might be better if LEGO opted for the usual pod format, throwing in some rare minifig accessories instead. I also feel that we have too much of Emmet already, and it will be more interesting if LEGO opted for any another character in the film. I guess there’s no argument here considering the vast amount of characters available in the film.

In any case, it is still a nice find if you’re into collecting these pods, and we have to wait and see if the LEGO Movie 2 Emmet’s Pod is just a single tie-in pod, or will there be others to be announced later on.

SPOTTED: The LEGO Movie 2 Sewer Babies Minifigures

Since the first teaser trailer of The LEGO Movie 2 came out in June last year, there’s a particular group of minifigs that fans have been waiting to get their hands on. Thanks to an Instagram post by Mike Zuñiga (legocrcomunidad), we now have an idea on how to get the endearingly cute and tough, LEGO Movie 2 sewer babies!

The LEGO Movie 2 sewer babies are part of what seems to be a LEGO Movie 2 Minifigure Pack, similar to those from the LEGO Batman Movie and LEGO Ninjago. Other than the sewer babies, the LEGO Movie 2 Minifigure Pack also includes Emmet (yeah, LEGO is really Emmet in every TLM2 set) and a female minifigure which could either be Sharkira from Emmet and Lucy’s Escape Buggy (70829) or Roxxi from the D2C set Welcome to Apocalypseburg (70840). It’s really kind of hard to tell given the packaging’s reflection. This minifig pack also comes in at 48 pieces, and also comes with a minibuild. Instagram user the_real_fcl gives us a glimpse of how this minibuild looks like, which is kind of a half car front turned into a turret.

A post shared by FCL (@the_real_fcl) on

This TLM2 2 Minifigure Pack, together with the LEGO Movie 2 sewer babies were reportedly spotted in a LEGO certified store in Hong Kong and could probably sell for $12.99 per pack, similar to those from LEGO’s original themes. My only complaint about this is that I hope LEGO opted to include 4 or 5 LEGO Movie 2 sewer babies instead of only 2. They could have easily swapped Emmet for say, 2 additional sewer babies since the former is quite ubiquitous already. The sewer babies is a great addition to the LEGO Movie 2 D2C Welcome to Apocalypseburg (70840) if you’re planning to get one.

LEGO Masters To Air in the US

The hit, brick-building, LEGO-inspired reality show that endeared the UK to love the LEGO brick, even more, is now coming to the US. Plans are now being inked on how the hit TV show LEGO Masters can be adopted for US viewers, which was largely successful not just in the UK, but also in Germany and Australia. The LEGO Masters is a reality-based TV show that pushes the limits of one’s creativity in using LEGO bricks, where amateur builders get to compete with each other with the hope being the recognized as the ultimate LEGO Master.

The LEGO Masters show in the US will be produced by Endemol Shine North America, UK production company Tuesday’s Child, and Plan B Entertainment, headed by award-winning actor Brad Pitt. As with its initial run in the US, the LEGO Group will be hands-on with the show’s more important details so you can expect the same ‘wonder, emotion, drama and loads of smashing bricks’. Read on for the LEGO Masters US official press release.

Endemol Shine North America and Tuesday’s Child Bringing U.K Smash Hit “LEGO® MASTERS” to U.S with Brad Pitt’s Plan B Entertainment

January 9, 2019—Endemol Shine North America and U.K.-based independent production company Tuesday’s Child are teaming with Brad Pitt’s Plan B Entertainment to jointly produce a U.S. version of the hit British series “LEGO® MASTERS.”

The production companies are set to start conversations with potential American-based platforms later this month.

Originally created by Tuesday’s Child, “LEGO MASTERS” first launched on Channel 4 in the U.K. in 2017, quickly becoming the network’s highest-rated new series, nearly doubling its primetime average with young adults. Since then, “LEGO MASTERS” was renewed by Channel 4 and local versions of the successful format have begun launching around the world.

Along with Plan B Entertainment, Sharon Levy, DJ Nurre and Michael Heyerman will serve as executive producers for Endemol Shine North America, Karen Smith and Steph Harris will serve as executive producers for Tuesday’s Child and Jill Wilfert and Robert May for The LEGO Group.

“This is a project that I am truly passionate about, as LEGO bricks have played an instrumental role in my family’s life,” stated Sharon Levy, President, Unscripted & Scripted Television, Endemol Shine North America. “We are thrilled to be bringing ‘LEGO MASTERS’ to the U.S. market with the original producers at Tuesday’s Child and the team at Plan B Entertainment.”

Tuesday’s Child Managing Director Karen Smith stated, “It’s awesome to team up with Plan B and Endemol Shine North America to bring ‘LEGO MASTERS’ to the States. It’s a format filled with wonder, emotion, drama and loads of smashing bricks. The competitors excel in story-telling, engineering artistry, ingenuity and genuinely thinking outside the box. It’s a new talent show, but no-one sings or dances, unless they’re barefoot and stand on a brick…’

Jill Wilfert, Vice President, Licensing & Entertainment, the LEGO Group says; “We are pleased viewers in the UK and Germany have enjoyed LEGO MASTERS, and believe it will delight people of all ages around the world. The series celebrates creativity and the endless possibilities of the LEGO brick, not to mention the fun families and friends have when they build together.”

“We are so thrilled to be a part of the team bringing ‘LEGO MASTERS’ and this exciting new format to the States,” said the production team at Plan B Entertainment.

“LEGO MASTERS” pits enthusiasts in a competition that starts with a single LEGO brick and infinite possibilities and concludes with mind-blowing builds that will surely both inspire legions of loyal LEGO followers and capture the imagination of new fans.

Endemol Shine Group is the exclusive distributor of the format across all platforms outside of the U.K. and has the rights to produce local versions of the show around the world. Endemol Shine International is the exclusive distributor of all finished tape of all versions produced, including the original British version.

Last year, Endemol Shine announced “LEGO MASTERS” landed its first international deals, as Endemol Shine Australia is producing a local version of the format for Nine and Endemol Shine Germany successfully produced the series for RTL. Channel 4’s second season in the U.K. launched in November to strong ratings.

Here’s A Chance to Build These LEGO Asia-Exclusive Sets

Though the chance of the LEGO Asia-exclusive sets Chinese New Year’s Eve Dinner (80101) and Dragon Dance (80102) arriving in US LEGO Stores is close to none, LEGO was kind enough to give us the opportunity to build our own. The LEGO Customer Service portal was updated once again, and the building instructions for these regional exclusive sets are now uploaded for everyone to use. These Asia-exclusive sets are understandably gaining a following among the LEGO community, considering their thoughtful design and attention to detail. The cultural references to the festivities involving the celebration of the Chinese New Year are quite spot on.

These sets are considerably large in themselves. For example, the Chinese New Year’s Eve Dinner (80101) consists of a total of five bags with 615 parts in total. For most LEGO builders, the selling point for this set is its interesting range for colorful printed tiles, especially those found on the dinner table. Of particular interest is the printed 1×2 tile that shows a pair of chopsticks and a spoon. It also has its share of its stickers, particularly those found inside the build representing family photos. You may download the building instructions for the Chinese New Year’s Eve Dinner (80101) set right here.

The second set, Dragon Dance (80102) offers a wider range of play features similar to what was introduced in LEGO Forma sets. It comes in 622 parts placed in four bags. Since 2019 marks the Year of the Pig in the Chinese zodiac calendar, it’s quite clever of LEGO to throw in the Piggy Guy Collectible minifigure from 2014’s LEGO CMF Series 12. Additionally, the collection of festive minifigs dressed in brightly red, dragon-inspired clothes make the Dragon Dance (80102) a must have for collectors. If you wish to build your own Dragon Dance set then be sure to check its building instructions from this link.

Another of these LEGO Asia-exclusive sets is also slated to be released in the first quarter of the year in the form of the still-to-be-revealed LEGO Dragon Boat Race (80103), loaded with a huge amount of minifigs –  15 in all. Watermarked preliminary images of this set can be found on eBay if you want to take a look. Both the Chinese New Year’s Eve Dinner (80101) and Dragon Dance (80102) sets are currently available in LEGO certified stores in Malaysia and other parts of the Asia-Pacific region.  It is also currently offered at shop.LEGO.com’s Korean portal. If you’re located outside of Asia, then your choices are quite limited if you wish to add this set to your collection. You may try to check with third-party resellers such as those found on eBay if you wish to get these sets.

LEGO Introduces its First LEGO Minecraft Steve and Creeper (30393) Polybag

LEGO Minecraft is here to stay this 2019! And other than the introduction of new, larger buildable figures of Steve, Alex, and a Minecraft Skeleton, LEGO now introduces its very first LEGO Minecraft polybag with the Steve and Creeper (30393) polybag set. This particular polybag adds to the roster of other sets due to be released this year – particularly those coming from the LEGO City, LEGO Movie 2, and LEGO Marvel themes – whose building instructions were found online by Brickset.

This is a very welcomed gesture from LEGO since the Minecraft theme has been sorely lacking from polybags since its introduction 6 years ago. The LEGO Minecraft Steve and Creeper (30393) polybag features the typical Steve with a sword accessory, and a Creeper minifig, including a buildable TNT box. This simple build also comes with a play feature that allows builders to ‘launch’ the TNT by pushing a lever connected to a Technic pin. Like any other polybag set, this is also a great opportunity to have these two LEGO Minecraft minifigures added to your collection without breaking the bank. For your reference, here are the building instructions for this polybag.

Details are scant though as of this posting, regarding the availability of the LEGO Minecraft Steve and Creeper (30393) polybag, and my guess is that it may be a part of an upcoming promotional at LEGO stores and LEGO Shop@HOme. I’ll keep you posted as more info comes in. Be sure to check out as well the rest of this year’s LEGO Minecraft sets. Just click on the links below for more info at shop.LEGO.com
