“LEGO Masters” US Season 3 “Jurassic World” Special Sees Chris Pratt and Blue as Guests

LEGO’s TV media presence goes far beyond just animated adaptations of their hit brick-set themes. They’ve gone into reality programming as well. It began in the UK with “LEGO Masters”, a brick-building competition between two-person building teams. The participating pairs are whittled down by weekly challenges until one team wins the championship trophy. They’ll even get their final “masterpiece” build displayed at LEGO House, Billund. Many international editions of “LEGO Masters” followed the UK show. The US edition began in 2020, with a third season premiering this coming September. But first, a special preview episode got to feature an upcoming blockbuster with LEGO tie-in sets.

By that we mean “Jurassic World: Dominion” from Universal Pictures. This “Jurassic” sequel, premiering June 10, was the focus of a special sneak peek episode of “LEGO Masters” season 3. As told by Brick Fanatics, the special preview, showcasing the S3 contestants, was graced by “Jurassic World” star Chris Pratt.

While promoting the film with show presenter Will Arnett, it becomes clear Pratt wasn’t the only cast member around. The new “LEGO Masters” teams got plenty shocked when raptor Blue (portrayed by suit) took the stage. Also eye-catching were the LEGO Jurassic World tie-ins displayed in front of the hosts.

Season 3 of “LEGO Masters” US actually got delayed from its original May premiere. That would explain the sneak peek episode which aired last Sunday, May 5. At least one other special is expected before the season proper begins September 21 on FOX. “Jurassic World: Dominion”, again, arrives in theaters this coming Friday, June 10.

LEGO Con 2022 Teaser for Marvel “Doctor Strange” Set, Likely New Sanctum Sanctorum (76218)

Two Saturdays from now, LEGO will be kicking off its second ever LEGO Con. LEGO House in Billund will play host to a major live show event this coming June 18. As expected of cons, LEGO plans to make epic reveals of many upcoming products and sets. Some of these have been teased repeatedly over the past few months too. To give an example, LEGO Marvel collectors would still be waiting for the reported Sanctum Sanctorum revamp set (76218). While not mentioned specifically, this may be the subject of a new LEGO Con 2022 teaser.

The Brick Fan reports the official LEGO Twitter page posted a LEGO Con 2022 teaser this past Monday, June 6. Like we mentioned, it involves an upcoming LEGO Marvel set. And if you’ve no idea which Marvel franchise is involved, the preview graphics make it very obvious. The Marvel Studios logo and sling ring effects confirm the new LEGO Marvel set as for “Doctor Strange”.

Moving on to speculation territory, it can only be the aforementioned Sanctum Sanctorum, magical home/HQ to Doctor Strange. Already done once in LEGO form (LEGO Marvel #76108), the new #76218 is believed to be bigger. We’re talking similar scale to the epic Daily Bugle (76178).

Sure, less than two weeks’ wait for LEGO to just reveal the thing can be trying for collectors’ patience. But at least we’ll be getting a definitive deadline for knowing more about LEGO Marvel Sanctum Sanctorium (76218). It all comes down to LEGO Con 2022, happening June 18. Live-streaming is available (for US, 12PM New York and 9AM Los Angeles). We’re sure more teasers are in store for the event so we’ll keep an eye out for more Con-related stuff.

Five Disney Princesses in Announced LEGO Ultimate Adventure Castle (43205) Coming August

Disney struck a gold mine with the development of their Disney Princess product line many years ago. Young girls definitely went crazy all over the stuff adorned by images from the Princess characters of Disney canon. There were some restrictions however. One might notice that a shirt with, say, Ariel and Belle don’t have the two interacting. Official marketing mandated that detachment between Disney Princesses in official merchandise to keep their individual images distinct. Such regulations have since relaxed, especially with the Princesses seen in 2018’s “Ralph Wrecks the Internet”. In LEGO Disney, that hasn’t been much of a problem.

To illustrate, there’s this newly-announced upcoming LEGO Disney castle play-set as shared with us by The Brick Fan. It’s a fairly basic castle build for ages 6 and up, priced at less than $100. But Ultimate Adventure Castle (43205) will net young collectors with no less than five Disney Princess minidolls. Snow White, Ariel, Pocahontas, Tiana and Rapunzel share this fine castle which features room for each of them. There’s even room for animal companions and accessories of every stripe. LEGO Disney fans can expect this set to arrive in August. But now let’s see details from LEGO.com’s product listing:

Ultimate Adventure Castle (43205)

Age 6+ | 698 pieces | 5 minidolls | $99.99 | Coming August 1

Ultimate castle

This detailed set boosts children’s confidence as they build it, then sparks imagination and creativity as they role-play stories of their own. This set is designed to be played with solo or as part of a playdate with friends, and it combines with other LEGO ǀ Disney Princess sets (sold separately).

Beloved characters and friends

This set keeps kids playing for hours with Disney’s Ariel, Moana, Rapunzel, Snow White and Tiana mini-doll figures, plus Marcel, Pascal, Pua, Sebastian and a bird LEGO animal figures. It’s an impressive gift for any Disney Princess fan.

  • Creative play – Give any Disney fan aged 6+ a gift full of features, rooms, functions and accessories to drive role play in this fun LEGO® ǀ Disney Princess™ Ultimate Adventure Castle (43205) set
  • What’s in the box? – This 698-piece set features an opening, lockable castle with 4 levels, 5 bedrooms, a celebration cake, an animal playground and a key, plus accessories to spark endless adventures

CN LEGO Store Calendar Reveals 90th Anniversary GWP, Forest Hideout (40567)

All year this 2022 LEGO’s celebrating 90 years as a company older than the plastic bricks that made them iconic. One key component of their milestone celebration is the throwback sets. These products harken back to the early days of the LEGO brick system but are no less fun. Some 90th anniversary LEGO sets are out now while others are either still coming or rumored. And not all these milestone products are full sets; there will be some 90-years GWPs also coming our way. This much we know thanks to info in a local LEGO branded store calendar from China.

Courtesy of Brickset, which found it on LEGO Facebook fan-page Candidbricks, we have this image of the 90th anniversary gift-with-purchase. Like the other milestone LEGO sets, this one calls back to an oldie theme. In 1988 LEGO released Forestmen’s Hideout (6054), a Robin Hood-esque tree-house hideaway. This 90th anniversary revamp is called the Forest Hideout (40567), comprised of 258 pieces. It’s a fantastic callback to the Forestmen sub-line of the LEGO Castle theme. The Chinese LEGO Store Calendar announces the set’s GWP period as June 15-30. That’s for China of course, so we’re waiting for the rest of the world.

New LEGO Star War Sets Now Listed for Preorder; Coming August 1

Star Wars Celebration 2022 lasts for much longer than just the observance of May the 4th. On the LEGO front, that means more LEGO Star Wars sets for fans to collect through the year. In fact, no less than two sets were revealed over the past weekend, celebrating the wider “Star Wars” franchise. One item ties into the 2019-2021 EA multiplatform title “Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order.” The other set is for the upcoming Disney+ series “Andor”, spinning off from 2016’s “Rogue One”.  The Brick Fan tells us that both LEGO Star Wars sets are now up for preorder. They’ll finally become available in August.

BD-1 (75335)

Age 14+ | 1,062 pieces | $99.99 | preorder available; coming August 1

  • LEGO® Star Wars™ BD-1 build-and-display toy (75335) – Fans will love to build their own detailed, brick-built model of BD-1, the exploration droid from Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order
  • Authentic features – This brick-built model has posable joints and a head that can be tilted back, forward and sideways, plus a compartment for stim canister elements
  • Designed for display – An information sign and a BD-1 LEGO® figure that can be attached next to the sign completes the display
  • Collectible set – This BD-1 droid is part of a series of buildable LEGO® Star Wars™ droid display models

Ambush on Ferrix (75338)

Age 9+ | 679 pieces | 3 minifigures | $69.99 | preorder available; coming August 1

  • Buildable LEGO® Star Wars: Andor vehicle toy playset (75338) – Kids can play out an Ambush on Ferrix with this set, featuring a Mobile Tac-Pod, speeder bike and 3 Star Wars: Andor characters
  • 3 LEGO® Star Wars™ minifigures – Cassian Andor, Luthen Rael and Syril Karn, each with blaster pistols for battle play
  • Mobile Tac-Pod – Opening top and sides for access to the detailed interior, pilot seat, space for up to 5 LEGO® minifigures, adjustable wings, rotating double stud shooter and a rear access ramp
  • Speeder bike – Seats for Cassian Andor and Luthen Rael, plus clips to attach their weapons

LEGO Creator Expert Becomes LEGO Icons in June; Packaging Rebrand Starts 2023

One significant development in the naming of LEGO themes happened back in the year 2020. That was when the brand officially retired the “Creator Expert” offshoot of LEGO Creator. The company reasoned that the naming potentially scared off potential LEGO newbies. As part of the reorganization LEGO began using the Age 18+ classification for sets formerly under Creator Expert designation. You might notice though that we still tended to mention the name in our reports. The LEGO.com Shop continued using Creator Expert in their online listings after all. But starting next month, Creator Expert will finally have a new moniker.

According to Brick Fanatics, the former LEGO Creator Expert line will now become LEGO Icons effective June 1. The new Icons designation will also blanket encompass specific set subthemes that originally popped up under Creator Expert. If you recall the Botanical Collection and Modular Buildings that LEGO.com lists as Creator Expert sets, they’ll become Icons sets. That upcoming LEGO Optimus Prime (10302) will thus be known as a LEGO Icons set upon launch. Icons itself will slot under the wider “LEGO for Adults” classification of 18+ sets introduced in 2021.

LEGO’s statement on the reveal of the Icons theme is to help “adult consumers”. They note that 18+ builders tend to go for sets that either reflect their interests/passions or be deeply immersive. That being said, apparently upcoming LEGO Icons sets will not carry the mark in product packaging until next year. We at The Brick Show might bet that the next LEGO modular-building set in 2023 will debut the Icons mark. For the moment, let’s appreciate the nifty LEGO Icons branding as featured in the banner image at top.

11 Most Valuable LEGO Star Wars Minifigures of the Last Decade (2010-2020)

In the last 10 years, LEGO Star Wars has consistently become one of the LEGO Group’s most popular (and lucrative) themes of all time. And with LEGO’s stronger partnership with Disney, the popularity of the saga only seems to be increasing. So, it’s no surprise that there has been a growing number of the most valuable LEGO Star Wars minifigures released over the decade. And to cap off this year’s Star Wars Celebration, we’re sharing this list of 11 most valuable LSW minifigures from the years 2010-2020.

Well, you may be wondering why we’re focusing on this time period. A lot has changed within the Star Wars galaxy since Disney’s acquisition of Lucasfilm back in 2012, and the most noticeable of it is the continuation of the Skywalker saga in The Force Awakens released in 2015. Now truth be told, there have been a lot of varying opinions regarding The Force Awakens and the sequels and spin-offs that came after it. However, it can’t also be denied that there has been plenty of new Star Wars characters that we learned to love and have made their way to become an official LEGO set. And with the introduction of these new characters also came a sort of minifigure reboot of familiar Star Wars characters (from the original and prequel trilogies) for a new generation of LEGO Star Wars fans to enjoy.

So if you’ve started collecting your LEGO Star Wars sets during the past 10 years or so, then you may want to check this list that we scoured over at Brickset. Just bear in mind that the listed prices for these minifigures are based on Bricklink’s catalog as of this posting and that these prices are particularly for new minifigures.

Read on and see if you have them in your collection. And in case you’re looking for that hard-to-find minifig, then you’ll be glad to know that The Brickshow Shop has a comprehensive collection of LEGO Star Wars minifigures that you can browse. Be sure to check this as well. Just a bit of a note though: this article contains affiliate links. If you decide to purchase via these links, then you’re in helping us keep our blog site up and running.

Most Valuable LEGO Star Wars Minifigures of 2010 to 2020

1. 2020 – Arvel Crynyd (Rebel Pilot A-Wing)

From: LEGO Star Wars UCS A-Wing Starfighter (75275) 

Average Minifigure Price: $45.67

Arvel Crynyd is the commander of the Green Squadron that valiantly sacrificed his life to take down the Empire’s Super Star Destroyer The Executor.

 

2. 2019 – Yuletide Squadron

From: LEGO Star Wars Christmas X-wing Employee Gift (4002019)   

Average Minifigure Price: $403.38

It looks like Santa has been enlisted to fly with the Rebellion in 2019’s LEGO Employee Gift set. Because of the rarity of such sets, the value for these minifigures tends to go sky high.

 

3. 2018 – Finch Dallow (Resistance Bomber Pilot)

From: LEGO Star Wars Resistance Bomber – Finch Dallow version (75188)

Average Minifigure Price: $522.67

LEGO has a history of reissuing sets considering the fact that in rare cases, LEGO designers working on certain tie-in sets are not yet in the loop with regards to the details of their minifigure characters. This is the case for Resistance Bomber Pilot Finch Dallow from The Last Jedi. LEGO has to re-release set 75188 in order to stay true to Finch’s skin tone. What LEGO didn’t expect was the curiosity and demand that this set eventually created among the LEGO community making the set a bit harder to find.

 

4. 2017 – Jango Fett (Angry Version)

From: LEGO Star Wars Jedi Starfighter with Hyperdrive (75191)

Average Minifigure Price: $143.24

If there’s anyone to blame for the rise of the Empire’s Clone Army in Attack of the Clones, it will be fair to say that Jango Fett has the biggest share. Being the best Mandalorian bounty hunter there is, his DNA became the template for the Kaminoans to create the perfect human soldiers for the Galactic Empire. And he got his 2nd chance for minifigure fame when LEGO released another brick iteration of the Jedi Starfighter in 2017.

 

5. 2016 – Ahsoka Tano (Adult Version) with Tunic, Armor, and Belt

From: LEGO Star Wars Rebel Combat Frigate (75158)

Average Minifigure Price: $153.80

Ahsoka Tano had four minifigures versions credited to her, but to be frank, this version is the most visually appealing in my opinion. Inspired by Disney XD’s animated series Star Wars Rebels, the set that she belongs to is 1 of the 4 Rebels sets released by LEGO in 2016.

More LEGO Star Wars Minifigures Available at The Brick Show Shop! 

6. 2015 –  Boba Fett with Pauldron, Helmet, Jet Pack, Printed Arms, and Legs

From: LEGO Star Wars UCS Slave I (75060)

Average Minifigure Price: $130.92

Boba Fett is perhaps the most iconic bounty hunter in Star Wars lore, and this minifigure iteration of him from 2015 only deserves an equally imposing set. And being included in the one and only Ultimate Collector’s Series version of his trademark Slave I ship may have sparked interest for this minifigure variant among avid collectors.

 

7. 2014 – Darth Revan

From: LEGO Star Wars Darth Revan Promotional Minifigure (5002123)

Average Minifigure Price: $183.08

Darth Revan is probably one of the most beloved Star Wars video game characters of all time. We were introduced to his visual iteration when he first appeared in Electronic Arts’ role-playing video game, Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic almost two decades ago. And more recently, Disney seems to be taking a keen interest in Darth Revan when he was reestablished as canon in 2019’s Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker: The Visual Dictionary. Prior to this, Disney gave the green light for LEGO to officially render him in minifigure form as a promotional polybag in 2014 and 2016.

 

8. 2013 – Yoda with NYI Heart Torso

From: 2013 New York Toy Fair.

Average Minifigure Price: $1,000

I may be wrong, but this might end up being the most expensive LEGO Yoda minifigure around. With only 1,000 minifigures released as part of 2013’s NY Toy Fair and May the 4th promotions, the rarity of this minifigure is underscored by the fact that there is no current inventory of it over at Bricklink. I guess this will surely put a smile on the Master Jedi’s face.

 

9. 2012 – Pre Vizsla

From: LEGO Star Wars Pre Vizsla’s Mandalorian Fighter (9525)

Average Minifigure Price: $149.93

Making his debut in the animated series The Clone Wars, Pre Vizsla is the battle-hardened Mandalore leader of the infamous Death Watch. And in spite of his advanced Mandalorian armor and wielding the ominous darksaber, Pre Vizsla was eventually no match against Darth Maul. To his credit, however, LEGO has dedicated a LEGO Star Wars set in honor of his role in the Star Wars animated series.

 

10. 2011- Shadow ARF Tropper

From: LEGO Star Wars Shadow ARF Trooper Promotional Minifigure Polybag (2856197)

Average Minifigure Price: $177.07

Another Imperial foot soldier from the animated tales of The Clone Wars, the Shadow ARF Trooper – or Advanced Recon Force Trooper – is a highly specialized clone trooper that excels in short-range reconnaissance missions. And in 2011, LEGO opted to immortalize him in minifigure form as part of 2011’s May the 4th promotional sales.

 

11. 2010 – Boba Fett – White

From:  LEGO Star Wars Boba Fett Promotional Minifigure Polybag (2853835)

Average Minifigure Price: $195.29

Among the 18 minifigure variants of Boba Fett, this one stands out from the group. This all-white minifig version of the most popular bounty hunter in the Star Wars galaxy comes as another Star Wars Day promotional gift in 2010, and as a token to all participating builders of the giant LEGO mural as part of the Star Wars Celebration V.

Summing It Up

This list of the most valuable LEGO Star Wars minifigures of the last decade is sure to be on the lookout list of any LEGO Star Wars fan. With so many amazing LSW sets released over the years, it’s hard to choose just 10 or 11. But, with a little effort, we’ve done just that. So let us know in the comments below which of these minifigures is your personal favorite and if you think we missed out on any LSW minifigure that should have been included in this list.
