LEGOLAND Florida to Have Peppa Pig Theme Park in 2022

Okay a lot of you guys have emailed me asking me to post about this piece of news that came out yesterday. In 2022, LEGOLAND Florida and Peppa Pig will be somewhat coinciding with each other. Merlin Entertainments, which is owned by The LEGO Group, is working with Hasbro to create a standalone Peppa Pig theme park inside of LEGOLAND Florida.

As we all know, LEGO and Hasbro are competitors, especially in the building block world with Hasbro producing their MEGA lines. We most likely won’t see any LEGO Peppa Pig sets any time soon or at all. Could this partnership open up to the companies sharing their licenses with each other?

LEGO Shop UK Testing Minimum Purchase Amount on Pick-a-Brick Orders

LEGO will be testing out a new thing for the Pick-a-Brick service in the UK in which they will have a minimum purchase amount. This minimum order will align with the price of a large Pick-a-Brick cup in LEGO Stores in the UK which is valued at £11.99. The test will run until there is an appropriate sample size of generated orders. This test could also be rolled out in other countries in the near future.

Starting February 23rd LEGO.com will be running a test in the UK to help us get more info about having a minimum purchase amount for Pick A Brick orders. The minimum order value will be aligned with the price of large Pick A Brick cups in LEGO Stores (£11.99). The test is going to be visible to all shoppers in the UK.

There are currently two different element purchase options on LEGO.com, Pick A Brick and Bricks and Pieces. While these might appear similar the infrastructure behind each of these services is very different. From packing to shipping, Bricks and Pieces infrastructure is designed to assist with small orders to help the end user complete a project or replace lost elements. Pick A Bricks infrastructure is quite the opposite as it was designed to fulfil large bulk orders. The one thing that was not within the structure of Pick-A-Brick was the online experience allowing small orders.

Small orders impact the internal processes, and this provides the opportunity to test a minimum order value. This can also help align the Pick

A few days ago, LEGO officially revealed the new LEGO VIDIYO theme but one “set” that wasn’t talked much about were the Bandmates (43101).

The Making of LEGO White Noise

At the beginning of the month, LEGO launched a new playlist on Spotify called LEGO White Noise which is pretty much an ASMR playlist of LEGO bricks to help builders relax.

An interesting note they made is that they used over 10,000 LEGO bricks using different combinations of actions, surface textures, and recording techniques to finalize the tracks.

LEGO x HYPE Ninjago Collection Not Coming to North America

Last month, LEGO announced a partnership with fashion company HYPE for a new line of streetwear that is inspired by LEGO Ninjago. The collection has been available in the UK and other parts of the world for a while now but North America has been left out in the cold.

I reached out to LEGO Customer Service to see if the collection will be coming to the US and it doesn’t look like that will be happening any time soon. I’ve been told from LEGO CS, “At this time, we are not offering the Ninjago x HYPE™ products in the US.” They didn’t say anything further than that. It’s a bummer that we won’t be getting it since it was a pretty hyped announcement and people were excited for it and there’s no word on when it will be released here, if ever.

LEGO VIDIYO Sets Found Early at Meijer

LEGO’s newest theme, LEGO VIDIYO was announced last month but the details for it were lacking and there was no products shown off. The LEGO Shop also doesn’t show much off except for the Llama which seems to be the de facto mascot for the theme.

Instagram user marleylego has found some in their local Meijer store for $20 each and has shown off some of the details of the sets which include the Candy Mermaid Beatbox (43102), Party Llama Beatbox (43105), and Hiphop Robot Beatbox (43107). Note that Meijer does mark their prices up a little on everything so we’ll see if it’s that price. Each set also include 16 printed tiles to use to decorate the set.

LEGO VIDIYO is set to be released on March 1 so we’ll probably start seeing details of the sets in a few days/weeks.

LEGO Porsche 911 Turbo and 911 Targa (10295) Owners Pack Cancelled for North America

In just a few days, LEGO will be releasing the LEGO Porsche 911 Turbo and 911 Targa (10295) for VIPs and there was supposed to be a limited edition LEGO Porsche Owners Pack when you purchase the set. Unfortunately for those in North America, LEGO has cancelled the promotion due to shipping challenges. I’m not sure what that really means as it wasn’t explained on the LAN but it might be a dealbreaker for those where were thinking of getting the set early.

The Owners Pack (shown above) includes a Porsche wallet along with some prints and a Certificate of Awesomeness. Other parts of the world will still get the promotion when the set launches for VIPs on February 16.

This is a heads up for North America only — the VIP Porsche Owners Pack gift with purchase promotion has been cancelled due to shipping challenges.

VIPs can still order the awesome new Porsche 911 Turbo/Targa set before everyone else.

Building LEGO on First Dates

Today is Valentine’s Day and LEGO has recently released a video showing some strangers going out on their first dates while breaking the ice using the new LEGO Botanical Collection sets. The three couples engage in conversation using the Flower Bouquet (10280) and the Bonsai Tree (10281) that is set in between them. This relieves some of the tension that is inherently set when people go on first dates and it hopefully encourages others to try it when they go on dates.

LEGO has been pushing the LEGO 18+ product strategy a lot since its introduction last year and it has paid off for them as more adults have gotten into building LEGO in recent years. This is evident by the fact that the two sets have been currently out of stock at all retailers after its release last month and are hard pressed to catch any restocks that pop up online.

LEGO Star Wars AT-ST Raider (75254) Amazon Sale – February 2021

The LEGO Star Wars AT-ST Raider (75254) is currently on sale on Amazon for 20% off. Due to the recent news that Cara Dune’s actress, Gina Carano, is no longer part of the show, I have a feeling that this is the last time we’ll see the character in minifigure form, unless she is recasted in the future. I won’t get political here but if you’re wanting the set, I would suggest picking it up where you can find it due to many reseller groups telling their members to buy up all the stock to flip it.

LEGO World Builder Women of History Banner Project

For those who are artists, LEGO World Builder is looking for people who can create some banner art depicting some of the most extraordinary women of all time as LEGO minifigures for their image library. Three designers, at minimum, will be greenlit, and upon submitting the Winner’s Affidavit and the IP Assignment, will each receive $250 as compensation. You can read the full list of rules in the link above.

A variety of genres, sub-genres, and mashups make up the LEGO World Builder platform. And now is your chance to contribute your ideas. Just take a look at the world tags on the left side of the Discover page. You can choose from Action, Adventure, Escape, Magic, Science Fiction and many more! How best would you introduce these icons in minifigure form? Sally Ride was the first U.S. woman in space, but perhaps there are greater adventures for her across the universe. Mix and match genres for your banner images . . . Let your imagination roam, because you can submit up to 5 entries!

At this point, you may be wondering what exactly is a banner image. A banner image is the first thing people see when exploring an architect’s world on the LEGO World Builder platform, along with the world’s title and genre tags – so it’s important that the image itself makes a strong, visual impression and motivates people to click in and explore the world. You’ll notice after visiting the Discover page that you probably feel more compelled to click into worlds

A New Mindful Mix: the LEGO Group releases a soothing soundscape created with thousands of LEGO® bricks

BILLUND, February 1st 2021: Today, the LEGO Group is launching LEGO® White Noise, a new playlist designed to help listeners find a moment of relaxation in their busy lives. The playlist is composed of a series of audio tracks created using nothing but the iconic sounds that the LEGO brick makes, sounds that are recognised by generations all over the world.

Each LEGO element makes a unique noise, which is why designers experimented with over 10,000 in their quest for the perfect soothing sounds. The result is a soundscape that includes tracks such as ‘It All Clicks’ which perfectly captures the joyous sound of two LEGO elements joining together, and ‘The Waterfall’ created by pouring thousands of LEGO bricks on top of each other.

Like other white noise tracks, the playlist is designed to help listeners find a moment of zen in their day, making it the perfect audio accompaniment for falling asleep, unwinding, or relaxing through LEGO building.

The playlist can be accessed for free from over 15 different music streaming platforms including Spotify, iTunes and Google Music.

The LEGO White Noise playlist has been released to accompany the immersive

LEGO Marvel Advent Calendar Rumored for 2021

LEGO news has been pretty quiet the last few days but there’s a new rumor of a potential a LEGO Marvel Advent Calendar being added to the lineup this year.

LEGO Seasonal Year of the Ox (40417) Review

LEGO Seasonal Year of the Ox (40417)

In just a few days, LEGO will have a new promotion on the LEGO Shop for the LEGO Seasonal Year of the Ox (40417). You’ll be able to get it for free with purchases of $85 or more, while supplies last.

LEGO Seasonal Year of the Ox (40417)

Like with the previous Chinese Zodiac animal GWPs, it comes in a flap box and it also includes an envelope for putting money in as a gift.

LEGO Seasonal Year of the Ox (40417)

The build is a cartoonish style ox that is sitting on a display stand. The ox has articulation on the arms and legs by the way of some ball joints and the head is on a turntable spinner. The ears are on hinges so they are able to move up and down.

LEGO Seasonal Year of the Ox (40417)

LEGO Seasonal Year of the Ox (40417)

The stand has a more autumn feel to it with the color scheme but it works well with the color of the ox. There are a couple of jumper plates to allow it to sit on it but it’s not too secure.

LEGO Seasonal Year of the Ox (40417)

The Year of the Ox (40417) is the seventh one in the Chinese New Year series and it’s an okay build. Ranking it alongside the other animals that have released so far in terms of design, I would place it fifth. Of course, that’s just my opinion and you may have it ranked higher. The Year of the Dog (40235) is still my favorite one mainly because I love the look of it and that is my zodiac animal.

The promotion for this set will run from February 1-14 with purchases of $85 or … Continue

LEGO Celebrates 63rd Brick Patent Day

Today, LEGO celebrates the day that the LEGO brick was born which was when the design of the LEGO brick was patented in Denmark back in 1958. It is pretty much one of the most important events in LEGO history since it eventually gave us the “building blocks” for the LEGO System. Without it, we wouldn’t have any builders or AFOLs in general.

On January 28, 1958 at precisely 1.58 pm the application for the very first LEGO® brick patent was filed at the Danish Directorate for Patents and Trademarks. Soon after, patent applications were filed in numerous countries around the world.

In the months after the application for the Danish patent, applications were filed in countries such as Norway (March 12, 1958), Sweden (March 22, 1958), Germany (April 10, 1958) and Holland (April 14, 1958). Also in 1958, applications were filed in France, Belgium, Switzerland, and Italy.

The following year, in 1959, the LEGO reach was increased even further to include countries such as Israel, South Africa, England, Poland, Ireland, Turkey, Finland, Portugal and Spain.

And today, as we know, LEGO play is reaching millions of children all over the world.

LEGO Titanic Set Rumored for 2021 Release

Over the past week or so, there have been some new rumors of an upcoming LEGO set based on the Titanic. YouTube channel Brother From Another Brick has received information from Eurobricks user VanIslandLego about a LEGO Titanic set coming later on this year. There’s no other details mentioned but we can expect it during the second half of the year. Keep in mind that VanIslandLego is the same person who first reported on the LEGO Ghostbusters Ecto-1 (10274) and the LEGO Colosseum (10276) before they were released.

The last large scale ship that LEGO has released was the LEGO Creator Maersk Line Triple-E (10241) way back in 2014 but if the Titanic is real, it is sort of macabre due to it having over 1,500 people dying when it sank in 1912.

LEGO Seasonal Easter Bunny (40463) Review

LEGO Seasonal Easter Bunny (40463)

Releasing on February 1, the new LEGO Seasonal Easter Bunny (40463) is unlike some of the seasonal animal sets that have been released before it. Before we get to that, we’ll note that it has 293 pieces and will retail for $14.99.

LEGO Seasonal Easter Bunny (40463)

LEGO Seasonal Easter Bunny (40463)

The first part of the build is for the display stand, similar to the one found with the Valentine’s Brown Bear (40462). For the foundation, the designer has put in a carrot to also act as a support for the plates on top. There’s a spot on the corner for the bunny to sit and the other side has spots for two brick-built Easter eggs that come with the set.

LEGO Seasonal Easter Bunny (40463)

LEGO Seasonal Easter Bunny (40463)

The bunny itself is consists of several parts that connect to the body. There are a lot of curved plates and bricks that are used to give it a more natural look. The hind legs are on ball joints but they don’t actually give any advantage to being able to pose it. If you angle the legs just right, you can probably get some poseability out of it but is limited due to the tail and the weight of the head.

LEGO Seasonal Easter Bunny (40463)

The head is also on a ball joint and this gives it a decent range of motion which allows it to have some emotion. It isn’t much but at least it doesn’t just spin around like with the heads of previous seasonal builds. Lastly, the ears are on ball joints as well.

LEGO Brick Sketches Price Adjustment on LEGO Shop

LEGO has quietly dropped the price for all the LEGO Brick Sketches to $16.99 on the LEGO Shop. This is a straight up price adjustment from the original $19.99 price point and not a discounted price.

LEGO BrickHeadz Chinese New Year Pandas (40466) Review

LEGO BrickHeadz Chinese New Year Pandas (40466)

The Lunar New Year is coming up in a few short weeks and LEGO has released a set to celebrate it with the Chinese New Year Pandas (40466). The set has 249 pieces and retails for $19.99 and it features a mother panda along with two cubs.

LEGO BrickHeadz Chinese New Year Pandas (40466)

LEGO BrickHeadz Chinese New Year Pandas (40466)

The mother panda is in a sitting position. The build uses a number of the Brick 1X2X1 2/3 W/4 Knobs for the head which allows it to have details on all four sides. It has its own baseplate which includes a red lantern as well as a small mandarin orange tree. The tree also has a couple of small lanterns.

LEGO BrickHeadz Chinese New Year Pandas (40466)

One of the baby pandas is also in a sitting position. Like its mother, the head uses the specialized bricks for the head but in a smaller scale. It also comes with a bamboo stalk.

LEGO BrickHeadz Chinese New Year Pandas (40466)

The other cub is similar to the other one except that the legs are straight and there’s a Technic hole in the back to connect to the baseplate. This makes it look like it’s either sleeping or playfully frolic on the floor. It also has a stalk of bamboo.

LEGO BrickHeadz Chinese New Year Pandas (40466)

Overall, it’s nice to see LEGO expand on the the Lunar New Year celebration but the LEGO BrickHeadz Chinese New Year Pandas (40466) seem to be somewhat lacking something. The mother panda and her baseplate are the best things from it and I do like the detailing in the tree. They are cute and I have them displayed on my shelf but the price … Continue

Toy Fairs Delayed/Cancelled Around the World

This is usually the time of the year where we get excited for some of the toy fairs that where we get details of the 2HY LEGO sets. Unfortunately, the COVID-19 pandemic is still wrecking havoc around the world and that means that many of the events that should be happening have been delayed further or cancelled altogether. The big one is the New York Toy Fair which is when we get a first glimpse at the sets but they have announced that the show will not be taking place this year, at least in New York. It was originally planned for May 2021. In addition, the London Toy Fair has announced that their event will not be taking place either while the Nuremberg Toy Fair has been pushed to summer 2021.

Obviously this is disappointing but not unexpected and understandable due to the events happening throughout the world. LEGO has been doing their own reveals, as seen late last year, when they revealed some of the new products that have been recently released on the LEGO Shop. It’s wishful thinking but maybe they could something like what Hasbro is doing with Hasbro Pulse and Fan First Friday’s where they reveal new products every week but that probably won’t happen. As least we’ll still get guaranteed reveals of the D2C sets that will be released this year.

LEGO Bionicle Leads LEGO Ideas 90th Anniversary Fan Vote

Earlier this week, LEGO kicked off a fan vote campaign to celebrate the 90th anniversary of the company to choose one classic LEGO theme that they will make a set for. As of this post, there have been 58,632 votes cast for the three LEGO themes that will move one to the next round of voting.

It’s hard to see to has voted what but I have been forwarded to a post by StoneWars who has done the hard work of aggregating the data and has calculated the three themes that are in the lead which are Bionicle, Classic Space, and Pirates. Trains and Adventurers were very close behind so the last spot may have changed since their post so every vote matters. Not surprisingly, Bionicle has an overwhelming lead as that community is very passionate about the theme.

There are three days left to cast your votes for the LEGO theme that you want to see be made into a set in the near future. The fan vote will end on January 25 at 4am EST.

Future Gift with Purchase Item Teased in LEGO Ideas Medieval Blacksmith (21325) Designer Video?

Yesterday’s release of the designer video for the LEGO Ideas Medieval Blacksmith (21325) may have also teased a future gift with purchase item. About 1:10 into the video when LEGO designer Wes Talbott reaches up to the cabinet to get the set, the right side of it has a small castle build on top of some storage bricks. A few keen eyed readers have already suggest that this little build could be a GWP next month when the Medieval Blacksmith is released.

We all know LEGO likes to do teasers for upcoming products but there hasn’t been any updates from LEGO on upcoming promotions so we’ll have to wait for the LEGO Store Calendar to be published online to see whether or not it will be a GWP. Thanks to everyone who emailed in about it.

LEGO IDEAS® REVEALS MEDIEVAL SET STARRING THE UNSUNG HERO OF THE MIDDLE AGES – THE HONOURABLE BLACKSMITH

LEGO Ideas has taken a leaf out of the history books with the design of its latest set, a charming Medieval Blacksmith’s house. The new set is based on an original design by an avid LEGO builder, which achieved over 10,000 votes from LEGO fans worldwide – giving it the green light to go into production.

LEGO superfan Clemens Fiedler originally submitted the concept to LEGO Ideas; a LEGO initiative that takes new ideas that have been imagined and voted for by fans and turns them into reality. The LEGO Ideas® Medieval Blacksmith set harks back to a time when cottage industries and artisans were the cornerstone of society and was brought to life by LEGO designers Wes Talbott and Austin Carlson.

When thinking of medieval times, the focus is normally on the kings and queens, knights and ladies, their castles and the battles between good and evil, but this new medieval set has an unexpected twist showing the unsung hero of those epic battles and adventures – the humble Blacksmith.

True to the era,the LEGO® Ideas Medieval Blacksmith set includes bold period design features from the timber framed walls to the

The Brick Fan Turns 9 Years Old

It’s January 18 and that means that The Brick Fan turns nine years old today. For those who have recently found the site, it went by another name when I first started out but had to change it to The Brick Fan and January 18 was the day that domain went live. I’m even surprised that I kept up with it throughout these years which actually doesn’t seem that long. I still remember the day that I got my first LEGO set after my Dark Age and wanted to do something fun with it. And boom, here we are. FYI, it was the LEGO Star Wars Millennium Falcon (7965).

Last year, it was a terrible year for the world but a lot of you had time to be online more and it marked the best year we had on the site in terms of pageviews and first time visitors. For 2021, we are currently on pace to be even better than last year which is very remark considering we’re only just barely past the halfway point of the first month. I just also realized that we’ve just past 100 million pageviews, a goal that I never imagined hitting!

Again, thank you to everyone who takes time out of your busy day to read something on this side of the internet. It really means a lot that you guys continue to read what I put out there. Even though we’re not the best LEGO news site, we are part of a collective of Recognized LEGO Fan … Continue

LEGO Star Wars 2021 2HY Set Rumors

Check out the press release of the 10th anniversary of LEGO Ninjago below which includes a cool timeline of some of the major events that have happened in Ninjago throughout the years. There are also some new March 2021 Ninjago sets have been revealed below as well.
