Amazon currently has a good sale going on for select LEGO products where you can save $10 when you spend $50. Honestly, I think the best deals are on the Blue and Gray baseplates as well as for the Tracks which are already on sale. There’s also a few good sets to choose from too but my money is on the baseplates and tracks.
LEGO has announced the winner of the LEGO Ideas vintage car fan vote which will become a future gift with purchase set. The grand prize winner is the Aedelsten deluxe by Versteinert with 1,449 votes and it was a landslide victory for it as it had 800 more votes than the first runner up. The design will now be sent to LEGO designers to create a small set that we’ll be able to get in the near future so stay tuned for the reveal on that.
It seems like good deals can still be found this late into the holiday shopping season as Walmart has one for the LEGO Technic Volvo Concept Wheel Loader ZEUX (42081). It is currently on sale for $89.99 which is almost 36% off the normal retail price. I’m not into too much Technic sets but the main model looks really good and it can also convert to the Volvo Concept Hauler PEGAX.
The Clockwork Aquarium! project by mjsmiley is the latest project to achieve 10,000 supporters on LEGO Ideas. The aquarium features a number of fish along with some plants and sand but the main play feature is the working internal mechanism that makes the fish “swim” about. You can check out how the aquarium works in the video below.
The project now joins Queen: I Want to Break Free, Seinfeld 30th Anniversary, The Legend of Zelda: BotW Stables, Planet Express Delivery Ship, Ratatouille: Open The Doors!, LEGO Typewriter, The Legend of the BIONICLE, The Huascar, Winter Chalet, Toronto Rocket Subway Train, and Home Alone McCallister’s House as the projects to reach the Third 2019 Review Stage.
The year is almost coming to an end and I guess this is a good time to list my top 10 LEGO sets for 2019. According to Brickset, there were 785 LEGO products released this year but I’ll only be choosing ten as my favorites. Believe me, there were a lot of good sets that were released so it’s really hard choosing just a tiny fraction of them. Like usual, I’ll be using a number of criteria to rank them.
The trailer for Ghostbusters: Afterlife dropped today and it is a direct sequel to the original Ghostbusters and Ghostbusters II starring Finn Wolfhard, Carrie Coon, Mckenna Grace, and Paul Rudd. What we’re interested here at The Brick Fan is if there are any LEGO sets for Ghostbusters: Afterlife. We’re unsure at this time but rumor has it from Brick Fanatics is that there will be some sets inspired from the film.
As you may know, the Ghostbusters theme isn’t new from LEGO as there has been a number of sets already including the LEGO Ideas Ecto 1 (21108), Ecto 1 & 2 (75828), Firehouse Headquarters (75827), BrickHeadz Peter Venkman & Slimer (41622), and sets for LEGO Dimensions. I wouldn’t be too surprised if there are sets for the new movie.
Ghostbusters: Afterlife releases in theaters on July 10, 2020.
