LEGO Looney Tunes Collectible Minifigures Rumored for 2021


I’m not sure where this rumor started from but Brick Fanatics has reported that there will be a LEGO Looney Tunes Collectible Minifigures series coming in 2021. This is the first time I’ve heard about it and it is way out in left field. Looney Tunes is owned by Warner Bros. and LEGO has done a lot of licensed products with the brand before so it’s not out of the realm of possibilities.

If it does happen, we can expect to see some of the more popular characters such as Bugs Bunny, Daffy Duck, Tweety, Yosemite Sam, Porky Pig, Elmer Fudd, Foghorn Leghorn, Tasmanian Devil, Sylvester, Marvin the Martian, Pepe Le Pew, Road Runner, and Speedy Gonzales, just to name a few.

Again, I’m not saying this is true but it’s possible since Brick Fanatics has some good sources as well but don’t get too excited if nothing comes out of this.


LEGO Creator Winter Village Elf Clubhouse (10275) Rumored for 2020


Continuing with the rumor mill, there is now information on possibly what this year’s LEGO Creator Winter Village set will be. Word has it that the 2020 Winter Village set will be an Elf Clubhouse (10275). It not usual that we get something elf-centric but it seems that it may go well with the Santa’s Workshop (10245) and Toy Workshop (40106) from 2014. Can you believe we haven’t had any elves for the Winter Village in that many years? It doesn’t seem like it to me as I can clearly remember it being released in stores. Anyways, consider the Elf Clubhouse only as a rumor until LEGO announces it in the upcoming months.

LEGO Creator Expert Ghostbusters Ecto-1 (10274) Rumored for 2021


There’s a new rumor going around the internet for about a few days about a new LEGO Creator Expert Ghostbusters Ecto-1 (10274) coming out some time in 2021. If you remember late last year, there was another rumor of some Ghostbusters: Afterlife sets that were set to be released this year in conjunction with the movie release but all that got delayed due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

This rumor, which comes from Eurobricks, says it will retail for $200 and is in the style of the Creator Expert vehicles like the James Bond Aston Martin DB5 (10262) and the Fiat 500 (10271). Note that the Aston Martin was also based on a movie as well. This also means that the Ecto-1 won’t be in minifigure scale which and will probably be in the system sets that were supposed to be out for the new movie.

Again, all rumors are treated as such until LEGO officially announces it or leaked images start showing up online which has been happening a lot for every big release. The image above is not the rumored set but of the LEGO Ideas one that was released a few years ago.

LEGO Sets Not Retiring in 2020


I’ve recently talked about some LEGO sets that are set to be retiring at the end of the year but I’ve also been asked if certain sets will be staying or not. I have some new information about a couple of sets that you don’t have to worry about it going away after 2020. I’ve been told from my source that the LEGO Stranger Things The Upside Down (75810) and The Disney Castle (71040) will not be retired and will be available for the foreseeable future.

Currently The Upside Down is still in stock on LEGO [email protected] but the Disney Castle has been on backorder status for a while now. Fortunately, LEGO is accepting backorders and it’ll be shipped in 60 days. You can also use the stock check to see if your nearest LEGO Brand Store has it on the shelves.


LEGO Star Wars Battle Packs Ending After 2020?


The LEGO Star Wars Battle Packs have been a staple for the theme for many years but it looks like they might be going away after 2020. For army builders, these were great sets for certain minifigures for a relatively cheap price and they also included some small builds to go along with it.

There’s a new rumor going around on Eurobricks discussing that the Battle Packs may be going away by the end of the year. There’s no concrete evidence showing this is true we’ll hold off on calling it done completely. One theory is that with the release of the 501st Legion Clone Troopers (75280), LEGO might be taking a year off to focus on producing these highly popular and desired minifigures.

Currently, the only two Battle Packs on the market are the Sith Troopers Battle Pack (75266) and the Mandalorian Battle Pack (75267).


LEGO Art Pre-Orders on Amazon


Amazon is currently offering pre-orders for the upcoming LEGO Art sets that are set to be released on September 1. Each of them retails for $119.99 each and they will be released on Amazon on August 28.

Andy Warhol’s Marilyn Monroe (31197)
The Sith (31200)
The Beatles (31198)

For those who don’t know, each set gives you enough pieces to create one piece of art and each of the sets have multiple variations so you’ll have to purchase multiple sets to have the “complete” artwork. If you do plan on getting them, I would highly suggest waiting until they go live on LEGO [email protected] to earn VIP points unless you don’t have a VIP account. In that case, I would wait until there’s a decent discount on them or if you earn money back on a rewards card.
