There are now official images of the upcoming LEGO Friends Play Cube sets that will be releasing in the near future. These little cubes are similar to the Polly Pocket toys which gives kids a new way to play. Inside each cube are settings for each of the Friends characters and they also include a mystery pet.
The new LEGO Speed Champions Lamborghini Huracán Super Trofeo EVO (30342) polybag has started showing up at Walmart stores. The 70 piece polybag is an officially licensed Lamborghini product complete with an authenticity label on the back. The polybags are found in the LEGO aisle. Mine was on hangers but they could also be stocked in those cardboard holders. The polybag is priced at $4.97. You can check Brickseek to see if there are any near you. Thanks to Andrew and Scizz for the heads up.
I’ve been told that the LEGO Creator Train (30575) polybag has now been found at Target stores. I have no other information on it except that was found at the LEGO section as well as at the checkout lanes. All of the pieces in the set are pretty common except for the 2×2 round plate with knob which was introduced last year. Thanks to Jesse for the heads up.
Walmart is currently running a LEGO Masters promotion online in which you can save up to 25% on baseplate bundles. Build your bundle with any of the four available baseplate colors (Green, Blue, Gray, White) and the final price will automatically be listed. Any deals on baseplates is good especially if you’re building larger sized layouts. Here are the combinations of baseplates with the prices:
Green + Green = $7.48
Green + White = $9.63
Green + Blue = $10.92
Green + Gray = $12.73
Blue + White = $13.07
Blue + Blue = $14.36
Blue + Gray = $16.17
Gray + White = $14.88
Gray + Gray = $17.98
White + White = $11.78
The 2020 New York Toy Fair kicks off later this week and LEGO will again have a presence there. I’ve been told they will only be showing off products that will be launching in the first half of the year so we won’t be seeing any of the fall/winter 2020 LEGO sets. We probably will finally see sets that were reported on from the Nuremberg Toy Fair so that’ll hold us over for now. I personally won’t be there but The Brick Fan will have a representative on hand for photographs and set details so stay tuned.
If you’re into LEGO trains, the LEGO City Cargo Train (60198) is currently on sale for $176 on Amazon. This is the lowest price this set has been in about ten months so you know it doesn’t have many significant discounts that often. The set does include the Powered Up system as well as enough track pieces to go around in a circle. Note that this sale price only applies to the Overbox edition, whatever that means that it ships in the LEGO shipping box that retailers get.
The premise of the second episode of LEGO Masters is to build a space-themed story and at the end, it will be destroyed. The builds will be judged on how it looks and the story that goes around it as well as how it looks when splatters. Mayim Bialik was brought out as the guest of the episode. The main component of the judging is how the build looks when it is destroyed using a bat, explosives, and gravity. Benny’s Spaceship was dropped as a demonstration.
