There’s a new rumor going around online stating that we could be getting a large scale LEGO Back to the Future DeLorean. Listed as set 10290, it will be a larger scale similar to the Ghostbusters Ecto-1 (10274) and the 1989 Batmobile (76139) but just a bit smaller considering the reported price point. The DeLorean is said to be released in September for $130.
If you didn’t know, LEGO has produced a variety of Back to the Future products including the LEGO CUUSOO DeLorean Time Machine (21103), BrickHeadz, and LEGO Dimensions expansion packs. If this rumor is real, my inner child will be very happy to add to the line of 18+ pop culture vehicles.
Were you able to get the LEGO Rewards Center exclusive Ulysses Space Probe when it dropped a few days ago? If not, the community over at Brickset has got you covered. Mind_the_Brick over there have provided building instructions in PDF format as well as an XML file that gives you the BrickLink part numbers. In addition, there’s also another PDF provided by Invicta for the sticker for the Ulysses plaque. It’s cool when everybody comes together to help each other out.

New LEGO® Harry Potter™ sets explores the wonderment of the Wizarding World™
BILLUND, April 16th, 2021: Today, the LEGO Group and Warner Bros. Consumer Products have revealed a new captivating mix of LEGO® sets to help young witches and wizards explore the enchanting adventures of Harry Potter’s second year at Hogwarts™.
From the tantalizing tactics of Wizarding Chess to Polyjuice Potion trickery, the sets are packed full of popular characters, creatures and imaginative features to help young builders reenact their favorite adventures from the films, as well as crafting magical storylines of their own.
While the enchanted walls of Hogwarts set the scene for many of the new sets, builders can spread their wings and explore the rest of the wizarding world by taking flight with the fiery feathers of Dumbledore’s beloved Phoenix, Fawkes, or visiting the snow-capped streets of Hogsmeade Village. Many of the sets also interconnect to extend the play into different areas of Hogwarts.
The LEGO Super Mario was released last year and according to LEGO, it was one of the company’s most successful theme launches. The most notable thing that was missing from the theme was his brother, Luigi. I’ve been forward a few times of a tweet showing a video that could suggest Luigi might be coming to the theme in the future.
According to the video by Jay Phoenix (shown below), he turned on his Mario figure after a new update and you can hear Mario looking for Luigi. Of course, I tried it with my figure and it didn’t do it. In fact, the firmware update actually bugged out my Mario and the screens are all scrambled. Jay Phoenix mentioned that he put Mario on his back and propped him up after a few minutes.
Have you downloaded the latest update and did your Mario look for Luigi as well or did it function normally?
