The Brick Town Police Station by Bricked1980 is the latest project to achieve 10,000 supporters on LEGO Ideas. The build is based on a modular police station that has 2,826 pieces. Attached next to it is a doughnut store. The build also proposes a police car and six minifigures.
For those who are interested, Amazon currently has the LEGO Disney Frozen II Olaf (41169) for only $7.99. This is 47% off the retail price and it’s a good price for what you get in the set. It features a buildable Olaf along with some accessories. There is a purchase limit of 3.
There’s a new service that has recently launched that is a new way to explore and shop for LEGO called ToySphere. What it basically does is that it takes all the LEGO themes and puts theme into “spheres” to give you a visual way to see all of the sets that have been released in a particular theme from the last decade. By zooming in on a certain item, you can either check out the description or purchase it off the LEGO Shop or on the secondary market if it’s retired.
Since ToySphere just went live, there are only a few spheres/themes available at the moment but will be continuously updated in the near future. Since we process visual data better, ToySphere has done a good job in putting all the sets in certain categories within the theme.
Sphere are excited to announce the launch of LEGO ToySphere, a completely unique and immersive format, reimagining shopping for LEGO and allowing fans to view the last decade of LEGO like never before.
Lifelong LEGO fans Olly Treadway and Warren Minde have come together to build ToySphere – bringing the excitement, playfulness and immersion of a trip to a real LEGO store online. Pouring time and passion into building this awesome new way to explore and shop LEGO, the team have spent the past six years on this epic fan project.
Combining Olly’s tech wizardry and passion for LEGO, with Warren’s years of experience consulting to the LEGO leadership at their HQ in Billund, Denmark, this is LEGO as you’ve never seen it.
The LEGO Winter Village theme continues this year but in a slightly different way with the Elf Club House (10275). The set has 1,197 pieces and retails for $99.99. The contents of the box include 11 bags numbered to 5 along with the two instruction booklets packaged with the small sticker sheet.
Amazon has announced that Prime Day 2020 will be happening in a few weeks on October 13-14. It was delayed this year due to the COVID-19 pandemic but shoppers don’t need to worry as they can find some great deals soon.
In the past, there have been some pretty good deals on LEGO products including sales on some of the larger sets. Amazon hasn’t given any hints on what sales they will be having this year.
If you haven’t yet, sign up for a 30 day trial of Amazon Prime to get the benefits of being a member which goes beyond just getting deals on products.
A few months ago, I reported that there was a LEGO Super Mario Toad’s Special Hideaway (77907) set that was supposed to be sold as San Diego Comic Con. Unfortunately, SDCC didn’t happen and we were left wondering what would happen to the set and it looks like there’s some info about it.
According to jamiebricks on Instagram and Cool.lego_pics, the set is being sold at a LEGOLAND Discovery Center for $19.99. The set has 120 pieces and is a cheaper way to get the Toad minifigure which was previous exclusive to the Toad’s Treasure Hunt Expansion Set (71368). There’s no word on where it will be available but I assume it’ll go up on LEGO [email protected] at a later date along with the other SDCC 2020 exclusive sets.
Next up for the 2021 LEGO rumors, we’ll talk about some of the LEGO DC Comics sets and it’ll be a short one. According to Promobricks, there will only be two sets for the beginning of the year and they won’t be out until May. First is a 4+ set featuring vehicles for Batman and the Joker. The other set is more interesting with the Batman Cowl helmet. Similar to the popular LEGO Star Wars Helmets, the theme eventually branched out to the Iron Man Helmet and next year, we’ll be seeing Batman’s cowl.
76180 Batman and Joker Vehicles – 29.99€
76182 Batman Cowl – 59.99€
