LEGO has teamed up with NimbleBit to release a new mobile game called LEGO Tower that is set to be released this summer. Similar to the highly popular Tiny Tower game from 2011, LEGO Tower will use its formula for this new game. I’ve played Star Wars: Tiny Death Star which is a similar game to Tiny Tower and I will say that it’s pretty addicting and I’ll definitely try LEGO Tower out when it is released. Check out the press release and more images below.
LEGO®Tower – mobile game
The most awesome LEGO idle simulation mobile game LEGO Tower is on its way!
LEGO has joined forces with NimbleBit, creators of the classic mobile game Tiny Tower to craft a brand new mobile experience. NimbleBit has a long track record of building lovable mobile worlds for their players, and both companies are excited to be taking the Tiny Tower formula to new heights inside the world of LEGO.
“Having the opportunity to build upon one of our signature games inside the world LEGO is a dream come true for us.” says David Marsh, co-founder of NimbleBit. “The building blocks of LEGO are a complete creative match for our style of games. It’s sparked a lot of the feelings of creativity and joy we’ve experienced ourselves while playing with LEGO since we were young.”
LEGO Tower gives players the ability to build and operate their own LEGO Tower. Construct a wide range of apartments and businesses for your Minifigure residents to live, work and play in. Visit your friends’ towers and trade items to help them build. Collect hundreds of unique Minifigure pieces and discover hidden characters. Build your dream LEGO Tower to new heights, the sky’s the limit!
Speaking of building, visit LEGO Ideas on the March 26th to participate in the LEGO Tower building challenge. Among the other prizes, winners will get their creation featured in the game!

Yesterday, the exclusive LEGO Star Wars Darth Vader Bust (75227) was announced for Star Wars Celebration 2019 in Chicago and it was also announced that Target will be carrying it as well. This brings the question of has LEGO ended the idea of “con exclusives?”
As you probably know by now, LEGO has been releasing exclusive sets and minifigures at various conventions such as San Diego and New York Comic Cons as well as Star Wars Celebration which are only available at the convention or on the secondary market. Since Target will also be getting the Darth Vader Bust, that’ll allow fans who aren’t able to attend to purchase it as well.
Could this also be the start of LEGO shared exclusives similar to what other companies, like Funko, do for some of the con products where the same items will be available at various retailers but with a different sticker than the con ones. I do like this idea as fans have been voicing their displeasure of having con exclusives for years and maybe LEGO has finally listened. We’ll see once the SDCC exclusive are announced in a few months. What do you guys think?
