LEGO Marvel Collectible Minifigures (71031) Rumored Details

There are some new rumored details for the characters of the upcoming LEGO Marvel Collectible Minifigures (71031) series. As we mentioned before, the series will be based around some of the Marvel Disney+ shows such as WandaVision, The Falcon and the Winter Soldier, Loki, and What If…? If you haven’t watched any of the shows, there are some spoilers so don’t read on if you don’t want to be spoiled. The Loki and What If…? details seem to be very spoilery with what we could be seeing in future episodes.


WandaVision

Scarlet Witch will be in her new outfit where she fights Agatha Harkness. White Vision is the version seen in the show and has lot of detailed printing. Monica Rambeau looks to be in her spacey looking outfit after she goes through the Hex the last time.

LEGO Friends 2021 Advent Calendar (41690) Revealed

Now that the LEGO Japan 2021 2HY Catalog is back up, we get to see some of the upcoming LEGO products and there’s an image of the LEGO Friends 2021 Advent Calendar (41690). Instead of the usual minidolls that we get for these calendars, there will be some new micro-dolls in this set. It’s a little hard to make out who the five micro-dolls are but I assume they are the main girls as kids. The image also doesn’t really show off the microbuilds so you aren’t spoiled on what will be coming.

Ask LEGO Designers Questions for LEGO CON 2021

LEGO CON 2021 is exactly two weeks away and LEGO is giving you a chance to ask a LEGO designer questions. Head on over to Twitter or Facebook and post your questions and if chosen, your question could be answered live. The post didn’t limit what you can ask so it’s pretty much free rein as to what you can ask. Obviously, keep it constructive and not ask about future sets as they will most likely not answer those.

LEGO CON will be held live on July 26 at http://LEGO.com/LEGOCON and there will be Q&As, building challenges, interviews, and even a LEGO Star Wars set reveal.

LEGO Marvel Daily Bugle (76178) Designer Video

The Daily Bugle (76178) is the largest LEGO Marvel set to date and today, LEGO released the designer video for set. Senior designer Mark Stafford talks about some of the dtails that goes into the set including talking about some of the minifigures. Note that the video didn’t really feature the Punisher even when they were showing each one individually. It’s pretty interesting but that’s another topic for another time. Currently, the Daily Bugle is backordered on the LEGO Shop but you can still put your orders in and it’ll ship by July 1.

LEGO City 2021 Advent Calendar (60303) Revealed

LEGO Japan has re-released the 2021 2HY Catalog after it was taken down a few weeks ago. One thing that we weren’t able to talk about the first time around was the LEGO City 2021 Advent Calendar (60303) which we can now see again. For this year’s calendar, it’s more vehicle-oriented but there’s also a couple of buildings as well. There’s also at least six minifigures included as well as a brick-built snowman. It doesn’t look like everything in the calendar has been revealed so there’s more than what is currently shown.

The Secret Life of LEGO Bricks Campaign Ended with 205% Funding

LEGO’s first venture into the book crowdfunding on Unbound for The Secret Life of LEGO Bricks ended last week very successfully and we now wait for the book to be published. When the campaign ended, it had a 205% funding rate with 3,660 supporters which I bet is more than what LEGO could have imagined. For a quick note, there will be 3,783 names in the back of the book on the supporter list. Now we wait for Daniel Konstanski to finish writing the book and it should be released by Spring 2022.

LEGO Tulips (40461) Back in Stock on LEGO Shop

The new LEGO Tulips (40461) is now back in stock on the LEGO Shop. I will say that this small set has been very hard to find as it is rarely in stock and I think this is the first time I’ve seen it in stock since January. It may have came back between then and now but it didn’t stay in stock for that long.

LEGO Ideas Central Perk (21319) Amazon Sale – June 2021

The LEGO Ideas Central Perk (21319) is currently on sale on Amazon for 20% off which is the lowest price it has been at since last November. If you decide to pick it up, you’ll save $12 on it but there’s also a dilemma since there’s also a promotion going on at the LEGO Shop. The LEGO FRIENDS Mug (5006068) promo is still going on until June 23 when you purchase the set on the LEGO Shop. As of today, the mug is reselling for $35-$50 on the secondary market but I feel it’ll come down a little bit as more people get their orders in the mail.

LEGO Builder’s Journey Game Preview

This morning, I attended a preview event for LEGO Builder’s Journey which will be available on Steam and Nintendo Switch on June 22. It was previously available for Apple Arcade but now, it has updated technology to be the world’s first ray-traced game made with Unity which is a custom integration specifically made for LEGO Builder’s Journey.

NVIDIA has teamed up with LEGO Games and Light Brick Studio to bring ray tracing and NVIDIA DLSS in the game. If you’re not familiar with ray tracing, it is technology that brings realistic lighting while also having improved performance.

LEGO Builder’s Journey is an atmospheric, geometric puzzle game that asks us to sometimes follow the instructions… and sometimes to break the rules.

Take your time to experiment with free-form puzzle solving while immersing yourself in a poetic world of LEGO® bricks. Throughout the narrative, there will be ups and downs, challenges, and celebrations. Figuring out who we are and what we become is the Builder’s Journey.

The breathtaking LEGO brick world is brought to life with the most accurately rendered LEGO elements yet to feature on screens, including stunning ray tracing elements.

LEGO Art World Map (31203) Designer Video

The LEGO Art World Map (31203) is now available and this morning, LEGO has also dropped the designer video for the set. Design Manager Fiorella Groves gives some insight on creating the set with the most pieces ever.

Fiorella also gives a hint of an Easter egg that she has thrown in the set. She is originally from Hong Kong and the Chinese culture means a lot to her so she has hidden something in the ocean to represent that.

For those who don’t want to look for it, it is in the Pacific Ocean and if you look closely, you can see the Chinese character 李 which means Lee. We can confirm on Fiorella’s Twitter is it is part of her name and that’s pretty awesome.

The LEGO Art World Map (31203) is now available on the LEGO Shop but here in the US, it is temporarily out of stock. You can read our early review of the set here.

LEGO Ninjago 10th Anniversary BrickHeadz (40490) to be Sold in July

The LEGO Ninjago 10th Anniversary BrickHeadz (40490) promotion for June came with some controversy as it is a purchase-with-purchase promotion but there are some more details about it coming from the LEGO Ambassador Network. As of now you can get it for $10 with purchases of $85 in Ninjago products, in-store only but if you want to do that, there’s another chance to get it starting in July. Whatever remaining stock there is left over from June in stores will be sold at full price starting on July 1 worldwide at LEGO Brand Retail, Certified Stores, Merlin and on the LEGO Shop.

This is actually a decent follow up for those who don’t want to buy any Ninjago in June since there’s nothing new and you’ll end up with duplicates. I’m going to guess there will be plenty of stock in July for people who want to buy it for $29.99. Again, it seems that LEGO is listening to feedback and all the negative reactions when the July 2021 Store Calendar was posted and have adjusted accordingly.

I have been told from the Shop Team that the 40490 set will only be available as a promo during the month of June. Then remaining stock will be opened up for purchase at full price after July 1st. Once available for purchase it is planned to be available at LBR, LCS, Merlin, LEGO.com.

LEGO Announces Partnership with UNICEF for Children in Need in China

A few days ago, LEGO announced that the LEGO Foundation will form a partnership with UNICEF to provide playful parenting to children in need in China. It is a 3 year partnership that will see $2.5 million invested to providing resources to support children in disadvantaged regions. It is expected to 20,000 children aged 0 to 6 years old and around 40,000 caregivers will benefit directly through access to better quality community-based family support services, improved parenting practices and behaviors, and use of age-appropriate play materials.

The LEGO Group and the LEGO Foundation join forces with UNICEF to provide playful parenting to children in need in China

Billund, May 27, 2021: The LEGO Group, the LEGO Foundation, and UNICEF today announced a partnership to bring learning-through-play to help early years development in children living in disadvantaged regions of China.

The three-year partnership will see approximately US$2.5 million invested in providing resources to community-based family support programmes to help caregivers understand the importance and life-long benefits of incorporating play into their everyday lives and enhance caregivers’ capacity to better support their young children.

Research has found that caregivers and young children in less developed areas interact less, and that disparity exists between urban and rural areas in many aspects of early childhood development, such as the opportunity to develop language.

“UNICEF is working with our partners so that every girl and boy’s rights to health, education and protection are achieved. Upholding these rights in the early years impacts a child’s long-term health, education and well-being. This partnership

LEGO Announces LEGO Ninjago Ninja Vlogs

LEGO has announced they have launched their first digital vlog series for LEGO Ninjago called Ninja Vlogs. The vlogs feature Jay and Nya who are played by actors using motion capture and real-time rendering and it combines CGI along with a live action performance. The first episode airs today over at https://www.lego.com/en-us/kids with subsequent episodes following every second Friday.

Ninja Vlogs Go! The LEGO Group Launches First Digital Vlog Series

LEGO® Ninjago Characters Jay and Nya to be played by actors using motion capture and real-time rendering

May 28th, 2021: Today, the LEGO Group steps into a new realm of adventure and discovery as it launches the first episode of Ninja Vlogs, a brand-new series of motion capture vlogs aimed at viewers ages 6-12 years. Hosted by Jay and Nya, two familiar faces from LEGO® Ninjago, the interactive vlogs offer a new way for young fans to connect with the beloved characters and even get involved in the story themselves!

For the first time ever, the LEGO Group is introducing content produced using motion capture and real-time rendering. Motion capture is a 3D production approach in which the performance of an actor is recorded using a suit with motion trackers and mapped onto a 3D character, thereby allowing the character to mirror the actor’s movements. Meanwhile, real-time rendering calculates 3D images at high speed so that scenes which consist of a multitude of images appear to be occurring in real time.

Merging the two techniques in relation to LEGO characters, models and settings combines the best

LEGO Releases Mysterious Teaser of Something Coming June 26

LEGO has released a mysterious trailer that shows something is coming soon on June 26. It shows a 2×2 brick with the stud highlighted in different colors and the whole image glitches. LEGO did do another teaser a few months back with the hashtag #NFT but that tweet was quickly deleted. I’m not sure if this new teaser related to that or not. It’s also possible that it could be the LEGO Light Mode lighting kits that were shown off last year but haven’t heard anything about them since. It’ll still be a few weeks before we see a reveal but hopefully there are more teasers by then.

LEGO Ninjago 10th Anniversary BrickHeadz (40490) Purchase-with-Purchase Concept – Good or Bad?

If you didn’t see the June 2021 LEGO Store Calendar yet, LEGO will be doing a new kind of promotion for the new LEGO Ninjago 10th Anniversary BrickHeadz (40490). Instead of the usual gift-with-purchase, they will be trying out a new purchase-with-purchase promotion for it and in this case, the set will be $10 with a purchase of $85 in Ninjago products, in-store only.

I can already see some issues with it. The main thing being the in-store only one. There are still a lot of people who don’t have a LEGO Brand Store or Discovery Center near them and will probably have to resort to the secondary market. There are also those who don’t want to go to a store because of the hassle. Another problem I see with the promotion is mostly for hardcore Ninjago fans who have collected every set. To get it, they’ll have to shell out $85 to purchase a set that they already have just to get the promo. The other side of the coin is that you can probably just keep it sealed for a few years and resell it after.

I have seen a mixed bag for the actual purchase-with-purchase concept. Some people like it because it gives fans who want the extra to get it and it ensures that the promo item doesn’t run out as fast as some previous ones. There are also comments that say it’s a money grab which it kind of is. The set is stated to be $29.99 in the T&Cs, so … Continue

LEGO Swing Ship Ride (5006746) Promotion Coming in June

LEGO Art World Map (31203) Officially Announced

LEGO has officially announced the new LEGO Art World Map (31203) which is the largest set that LEGO has designed coming in at 11,695 pieces. Releasing on June 1 for $249.99, the World Map is the latest addition to the LEGO Art in which the map is inspired by bathymetric mapping of the ocean floor.

Travel put firmly back on the map with huge new LEGO® Art set

Wanderlusters prepare to be enthralled by the magic of a different sort of map – the new LEGO® Art World Map. This new addition to the LEGO Art collection contains the most pieces ever included in a set in the LEGO Group’s history, with its 11,695 elements allowing builders to immerse themselves in creating a stunning representation of the earth from 2D LEGO tiles.

The new LEGO Art World Map can be reimagined in a number of different ways to express the personality and travel memories or wishes of different builders. Customisable brick-built pins can be placed to mark out destinations already visited or highlight those still on the builder’s bucket list to give this masterpiece a personal twist before it’s proudly displayed.

The set’s building instructions show how the 40 interconnecting base plates are divided into three sections for the build that can be arranged in one of three different ways, allowing you to place your favourite part of the world in the centre of your map.

The oceans on this 25.5 in. (65cm) high and 40.5 in. (104 cm) wide masterpiece can also be tailored to

Marvel’s Eternals Teaser Trailer Gives Glimpse of LEGO Tie-In Sets

LEGO Marvel Eternals

This morning, Marvel dropped the official teaser trailer for the Eternals movie and we get a first look at what the LEGO sets could be referencing. The Eternals isn’t your typical MCU movie as it focuses on an immortal alien race created by the Celetials who have secretly lived on Earth for over 7,000 years. The beginning of the trailer shows the triangular ship from the Rise of the Domo (76156) but that’s as much that was shown for the LEGO tie-in sets.

There are at least four sets that will be for the movie and we’ve already got details for them thanks to the January 2021 catalog. There’s still no word on when they will be available but it’ll be before or around the time the movie releases in theaters on November 5.

Deviant Ambush! (76154) – 197 pieces/$24.99
In Arishem’s Shadow (76155) – 493 pieces/$59.99
Rise of the Domo (76156) – 1,040 pieces/$89.99
Eternals’ Aerial Assault (76145) – 133 pieces/$9.99

One Week Left to Pre-Order The Secret Life of LEGO Bricks

There is exactly one week left to put your pre-order in for The Secret Life of LEGO Bricks written by Daniel Konstanski. In his latest update for the book, he detailed how LEGO was able to provide him with exclusive images to use for the book as well as LEGO going a step further to provide items to photograph for better image quality. It looks like LEGO is fully committed to put out a good book dedicated to AFOLs.

They say a picture is worth a thousand words, but it might be more in the case of LEGO® sets. Indeed, as several senior members of the LEGO Group’s in-house advertising agency told me, they spend more hours than you can imagine putting together the key images which appear on set boxes. But that is all I can say about that for now so as to not spoil a really great story from The Secret Life of LEGO® Bricks. For our effort, I and the team who are helping make this book a reality realised that being able to show many of the parts and sets I discuss was a necessity. To that end, the LEGO Group gave us permission to not only scour their digital archive but also to request images for use in the book. As I have been writing I concurrently scour the appropriate timeframe or category in the digital archive for pictures to enhance the text. However, it didn’t stop there. In a show of just how committed the LEGO Group is to

LEGO Marvel 2021 Advent Calendar (76196) Rumored Characters

One new thing for 2021 is that LEGO will be doing a Marvel Advent Calendar (76196) which will be the first time for it. There are some rumored details coming from Instagram talking about some of the characters that we could be seeing in it. If you don’t want to be spoiled, I suggest skipping this post.

For the 2021 LEGO Marvel Advent Calendar, we’ll be seeing existing Marvel minifigures but with slight differences with them. It is reported that they are Spider-Man, Iron Man, Captain Marvel, Thanos, Black Widow, Nick Fury, and Thor.

Spider-Man will be in this yellow jacket which is from Spider-Man: Homecoming. Iron Man will be in a Christmas sweater and will have the 2020 helmet and a separate hairpiece. Captain Marvel will be the version from the Avengers Helicarrier (76153) but without the helmet. Thanos will be the one from the Thanos Mech (76141) but he will be without leg printing or a helmet. Black Widow will be the one from the Avengers Tower Battle (76166). Nick Fury is said to also be the one from the Helicarrier set but he will have a beanie similar to his look from Avengers: Age of Ultron. Thor will also be the version from the Helicarrier but will the Infinity War hairpiece.

Note that quite a few of these minifigures are from more expensive sets so this will be a cheaper way to get them unless you just buy them separately on the secondary market. Along with the minifigures, we’ll also get a … Continue

LEGO Star Wars 2021 Advent Calendar (75307) Rumored Details

There are some rumored details of the LEGO Star Wars 2021 Advent Calendar (75307) and what characters we can expect to see in it. If you don’t want to be spoiled by what could be in the set, I would skip this post. Word has it from Promobricks is that it will be based mostly on The Mandalorian and six characters will be Stormtrooper, Scout Trooper, and Tusken Raider, IG-11, Din Djarin (Mandalorian), and Grogu (The Child) with the last two having festive attire.

In addition, some of the builds in the 335 piece set will have microscale builds of The Razor Crest, Cobb Vanth’s speeder bike, TIE Fighter X-Wing, blue Landspeeder, Tusken ballista, E-Web blaster, Imperial Troop Transport, Moff Gideon’s Light Cruiser, and a weapons rack.

The set was designed by LEGO Vice President of Design Matthew Ashton who has been posting teasers of the set the past few weeks and has said about the set, “I wanted to create a model that symbolises inclusivity and celebrates everyone, no matter how they identify or who they love.”

LEGO FRIENDS Mug Promotion Starting Soon?

There’s a new LEGO ad on Instagram that I came across that shows there will be a new LEGO Friends Coffee Mug promotion starting soon on the LEGO Shop. It says that you can get the mug with a purchase of the LEGO Ideas Central Perk (21319) but it doesn’t seem like the promo hasn’t started yet online.

The promotion is very interesting since many people already have the Central Perk and since The Friends Apartment (10292) just dropped for VIPs, why didn’t LEGO do it for that instead. I’m thinking that LEGO is banking on people purchasing both sets since there’s a big Friends fandom.

LEGO Marvel Daily Bugle (76178) Originally Had List of 60 Minifigures

The LEGO Marvel Super Heroes Daily Bugle (76178) was announced a few days ago and with it comes a whopping 25 minifigures which is the most ever in a Marvel set. The designer of the set, Mark Stafford, recently did an AMA on Reddit and he revealed that the set originally started out with 60 minifigures but was whittled down to the current number. In addition, he also wanted the original Sinister Six but just couldn’t do it and a lot of minifigures actually were pushed to the regular sets first. Some of the characters that were omitted from the Daily Bugle include Deadpool, Human Torch, Iceman, and Spider Woman because Marvel was in charge of who they wanted to include. Unfortunately, Mark is not able to divulge the other minifigures that we wanted to put in the set but hopefully we’ll be able to see them in future sets.

Several. I had made a list around 60 long when I started!

I wanted the original Sinister Six, but we just couldn’t make it happen, we ran out of new figures we could make. In fact because it was so minifigure heavy a lot of figures from this set were pushed out into the standard retail line (they ended up coming out first).

TO give you a few names I wanted Deadpool, The Human Torch, Iceman, Spider Woman – all Spiderman’s buddy’s. But Marvel also have to agree and some of the decisions to include or not include figures were up to them and like I

If you receive the LEGO VIP newsletters, you may have gotten one today stating the last VIP collectible coin will be available starting on May 20 on the Rewards Center. This is the fifth one in the series and it is the centerpiece for the display case if you were able to get it.

In addition, it also states that if you missed out on the previous coins, they’ll be back later this year. There’s no mention how big the restock is but at least people will get a second chance to get the first four coins, particularly the Space one that went out of stock in only a few hours. It’s nice to see that LEGO has taken feedback to make more for those who weren’t able to get one.

LEGO Harry Potter Summer 2021 Wizard Cards

LEGO Harry Potter Wizard Cards

The embargo for the new summer 2021 LEGO Harry Potter sets have lifted today and we’re getting our review ready so stay tuned for them. One new thing in this wave are some collectible Wizard Cards that are randomly packed into sets. They are essentially 2×2 tiles featuring characters from the Harry Potter Universe and are based on the Chocolate Frog Cards. Below are the cards you will be able to collect in this wave.

Albus Dumbledore (Silver Border)
Albus Dumbledore (Gold Border)
Severus Snape
Godric Gryffindor
Minerva McGonagall
Gilderoy Lockhart
Salazar Slytherin
Olympe Maxime
Helga Hufflepuff
Newt Scamander
Seraphina Picquery
Bertie Bott
Jocunda Sykes
Rowena Ravenclaw
Garrick Ollivander
Nicholas Flamel

Since it says they are randomly packed into sets, there’s a chance that you may get duplicates and not all the card may be guaranteed if you buy the whole wave.

Note that there is a mistake in the image of the cards. There is an image of Garrick Ollivander used for Rowena Ravenclaw’s card. If you get that particular card, she’s the one that wears the diadem. Also, the cards don’t have names on them so you’ll probably need to reference the back of the instructions so see who you got.

LEGO Vice President of Design Teases New LEGO Set

For the past week, LEGO Vice President of Design Matthew Ashton has been teasing out a brand new LEGO set that he has designed. It will be harder to guess what it is because Matthew is teasing the set one brick at a time, more specifically, 2×3 bricks. As of this post, the set consists of black, white, red, yellow, blue, and brown 2×3 bricks so it’ll be a while before everything is revealed. Any guesses on what this mysterious set could be?

Two More Projects Archived on BrickLink Designer Program

As the pre-production phase of the BrickLink Designer Program is beginning to wrap up by the end of May, many projects are finalizing their designs for the crowdfunding stage. In the past day, there have been two additional projects that have been archived which include the Temple of Hermit by Brickfornia and Japanese Old Style Architecture by TAXON55.

The Temple of Hermit was archived “due to the complexity of revising the model for the program.” The Japanese Old Style Architecture was withdrawn “due to other obligations” from the designer.

LEGO Tweet Suggests New LEGO Stranger Things Set

LEGO has possibly dropped another hint that we could be seeing a new LEGO Stranger Things set. A few days ago, we got a look at the Stranger Things 4 trailer and LEGO did a LEGO-ized still shot of one of the scenes. I took it as just LEGO getting in on the hype for the new season but a fan on Twitter asked if there would be any new sets and LEGO responded with: “Keep an eye out for more information!”

I haven’t heard anything new for LEGO Stranger Things but this tweet suggests that we may be getting something in the near future. We’re still missing a lot from the theme that we didn’t get from The Upside Down (75810) like Bob or the Mind Flayer. We did get Barb as a minifigure but it was exclusive to SDCC 2019. Let’s do what LEGO says and keep an eye out for more details as they come.

Venom: Let There Be Carnage Trailer

Sony has just dropped the Venom: Let There Be Carnage trailer and we can see what the sequel has to offer. Woody Harrelson stars as the new Symbiote Carnage and we’ll see if it follows the origin story from the comics or if Sony puts their own spin on it.

There are currently three LEGO sets that feature Carnage including the new Carnage (76199) bust. The other sets are the Venom Crawler (76163) and Spider-Man and Ghost Rider vs. Carnage (76173) which have nothing to do with the movie but I assume will be more popular once the movie hit theaters on September 24.

LEGO Stranger Things 4 Teaser

LEGO is getting hyped up for Stranger Things 4 as they have recreated a scene from the trailer that dropped yesterday. The trailer itself was pretty confusing as it shows some kids inside some sort of institute playing with puzzles. There’s one short scene that shows a child stacking some blocks which LEGO has recreated showing a minifigure stacking some bricks. I’m not sure if LEGO is teasing some more LEGO Stranger Things sets or just getting in on the hype. I’m guessing the latter.

Currently there’s only one set based on the show which is The Upside Down (75810). There was also a Barb minifigure that was exclusive to SDCC 2019. Are you excited that the show is finally coming back soon after a short delay and seeing the kids grown up?

RELIVE DARING MISSIONS WITH THE NEW LEGO® STAR WARS™ THE BAD BATCH™ ATTACK SHUTTLE CONSTRUCTION SET

May 6, 2021: Today, the LEGO Group reveals a cool, brick-built version of The Bad Batch – Attack Shuttle inspired by the new Star Wars animated series, Star Wars: The Bad Batch, streaming only on Disney+. The LEGO® Star Wars™ The Bad Batch™ Attack Shuttle construction set has been created for children ages 9+ and Star Wars aficionados looking to engage in their own clone missions.

LEGO Ideas Typewriter (21327) Rumored for June/July Release

It doesn’t seem like it but it’s been a while since we’ve had a LEGO Ideas set release but we may get another one soon. There’s rumors that the LEGO Ideas Typewriter (21327) could be released in June or July with a price tag of $200. It is said to have 2,078 pieces and the main color scheme will be sand green. I guess the color is to resemble the typewriters from back in day which you can see on Ole Kirk Christiansen’s desk.

The LEGO Typewriter by Steve Guinness hit 10k supporters back in October 2019 and it was chosen as one of the winners in June 2020 so the set has been in development for quite a while. Keep in mind that there are still six other LEGO Ideas sets under development so LEGO does have their hands full trying to crank them out.

LEGO Ninjago Hydro Bounty (71756) Development Notes

A few days ago, we got our first look at the summer 2021 LEGO Ninjago sets and set designer Niek van Slagmaat has chimed in on the behind the scenes development of one of the sets. With the very positive response to this wave, Niek gives an in-depth look at the Hydro Bounty (71756) which is pretty rare since LEGO doesn’t really release development photos.

Not only does the Hydro Bounty a submarine, it also has a mech integrated into it as well which we really can see from the official set images that came out the other day. What’s funny enough is that Niel actually designed the set from home during the pandemic. You can read more about the Hydro Bounty in the Niek’s Twitter thread.

Fifty Seven Projects Qualify for LEGO Ideas First 2021 Review Stage

The First 2021 Review Stage has been set with a record 57 projects that hit the 10,000 supporter goal on LEGO Ideas. LEGO will have their hands full in choosing a winner for this stage and there will certainly be some backlash if only a couple are chosen from this massive list. There were actually 58 projects that hit the goal but the Stadium Tour one was removed due to it being based on intellectual properties after the new IP rules were put in place and not stated as so. You can check out all the projects that qualified in the link above. LEGO is also wrapping up on the Third 2020 Review Stage which consists of 25 projects which seems kind of small compared to this one.
