LEGO Estadio Santiago Bernabéu (10299) Rumored for 2022

It looks like we could be seeing another LEGO football stadium coming in 2022 with the home of Real Madrid, Estadio Santiago Bernabéu (10299). It is said to be priced at $349.99 and will come with a gift-with-purchase set 40541. It looks like a new stadium set will be an annual thing since the Old Trafford – Manchester United (10272) was released back in 2020 and Camp Nou – FC Barcelona (10284) last month.

Currently Santiago Bernabéu Stadium is under renovation that is expected to be completed in 2022 which will have the completed look shown above. It is unsure if LEGO will be using the new stadium look or the original look at this time. LEGO does their production planning years in advance so it’s possible that they’ve had details of the new look to create this set.

The fault is only present on LEGO City Stuntz sets on sale in the Americas and does not affect any similar sets available elsewhere.

LEGO Ninjago – Fate of Cole’s Character Announced

Last year, the voice actor for LEGO Ninjago’s Cole, Kirby Morrow, passed away suddenly and the LEGO Ninjago team had to figure out what to do with the character. They had four options on what to with Cole and they have given a reasoning on why they did it.

1. Retire Cole as a character.
2: Use existing dialogue from all available Ninjago content since 2011 to keep Kirby’s performance in the show.
3: Come up with a story reason that Cole wouldn’t speak.
4: Recast.

Ultimately, the team went with a recast of the character with Andrew Francis. He has previously done work on Ninjago for other characters such as Shade, Beta Jay 137, and Morro. You will be able to hear Andrew as Cole in a series of short films in early 2022.

Dear Ninjago fans

It’s about time we talk about this:

When Kirby was first cast as Cole, it was a matter of finding a voice that fit the character which was written by the Hageman brothers. It wasn’t a hard choice to make as Kirby hit everything, we wanted right out of the gate … maybe he had some guidance from voice director Michael Donovan, and if so, well done Michael!

But what we received to base our casting decision on was just perfect. From then on it became a matter of writing a character that fit the voice. Any animation which has been done on Cole since then has been based on Kirby’s performance. He became instrumental to the development

Upcoming LEGO Harry Potter Promotions Removed from October 2021 Store Calendar

The original LEGO October 2021 Store Calendar came out late last month and there were some pretty cool LEGO Harry Potter promotions that were supposed to happen later this month but it looks like things have changed. The updated store calendar has removed the Hogwarts Gryffindor Dorms (40452) and Hermione’s Study Desk (30392) which were supposed to run from October 25 through November 7.

There’s no word yet on why they have been removed, at least for the US, and I’m waiting to hear back for a response from LEGO. It’s possible that the global supply chain disruption may have impacted the shipment of those promos.

LEGO Ideas First 2021 Review Stage Results Postponed

After hyping it up yesterday, LEGO has decided to delay the announcement of the results of the LEGO Ideas First 2021 Review Stage. Instead of it being today, it has been pushed back until tomorrow. However, they have also decided to do a giveaway for guessing the correct projects that will be selected, like they’ve done in the past. All you have to do is comment in the LEGO Ideas post of which of the 57 projects will win and they will randomly choose two winners.

The prizes include the Fender Stratocaster (21329) and a mystery set which is the next LEGO Ideas set to launch. Both sets will be signed by the LEGO Designers. The deadline to enter is five minutes before the announcement some time tomorrow so I suggest putting in your guess today.

LEGO DC Batman Batmobile Tumbler (76240) Review

A few weeks ago, it was revealed that LEGO will be releasing a new LEGO DC Batman Batmobile Tumbler (76240) which has gone through a number of iterations in the past. The most recent version was 76023 from 2014 which included some pretty exclusive minifigures. The 2021 version of the Tumbler will be released on November 1 and will be priced at $229.99. This is a price increase of $30 from the previous version but it also has an additional 180 pieces.


Box

The box uses the newer 18+ branding with the all black and just featuring the Tumbler and this is one of the few sets that it works well on. The back of the box gives a look at the vehicle on the display stand along with the plaque.

The contents of it include 18 bags that are number to 11. The instructions are packaged inside a cardboard sleeve alongside the two sticker sheets. Unfortunately, the single sticker was crushed during shipping but it was fine after it was applied.

Instructions

The front of the instructions gives a little insight on the design process of the Tumbler. LEGO Creative Lead Jesper Nielsen also chimes in on some of the changes from the previous version. LEGO Graphic Designer Adam Corbally was responsible for the graphic details on the minifigures, stickers, and the printed elements.

LEGO to Remove Gender Bias and Harmful Stereotypes from Products and Marketing

Yesterday was the United Nations International Day of the Girl and LEGO has announced that they are committed to making LEGO play more inclusive and ensuring that children’s creative ambitions are not limited by gender stereotypes. This also marks the launch of a new LEGO campaign called Ready for Girls which celebrates girls who rebuild the world through creative problem solving. There have been articles put yesterday that are misconstruing what the campaign is about and say that this is the end of the LEGO Friends line. LEGO has released a statement about that on the Ambassador Network.

LEGO Friends isn’t going anywhere. Next year’s LEGO Friends portfolio will have the most male figures we have had in our assortment to date. As well as gender, we are also increasing the variety in our LEGO Friends characters with more older and younger characters (including the microdoll).

We are also looking into representation for our Minifigures. Currently we have a larger proportion of male minifigures across the portfolio, but we remain committed to increase the number of female characters as we’re fully aware of how important it is to ensure children are able to reflect themselves in the toys they play with.

The LEGO Friends line celebrates their 10th year anniversary next year which is one of the few original IPs in LEGO’s evergreen portfolio. I’m sure LEGO will be doing something to celebrate that while keeping with their promise of making LEGO play more inclusive.

Girls are ready to overcome gender norms but society continues to

Global Supply Chain Disruption May Impact Holiday Shopping

If you’re planning on waiting to do holiday shopping this year, you may want to get your shopping in early. There is currently a global supply chain disruption and experts say there might not be much on store shelves this holiday season. The LEGO Shop doesn’t seem to have much inventory issues except for a few sets that went on backorder but orders usually ship in a week or so.

Retail store shelves may have problems as some of the larger chains don’t seem to have much stocked. Here in San Diego, there are a few Walmart and Target stores around here that are out of certain sets which can be rectified on the LEGO Shop but you don’t get the instant gratification of getting the items in-hand.

Now would be the perfect time to get your shopping done on the LEGO Shop since they have a double VIP points promotion until the end of October 17. Double points also work on pre-orders so it would work on the newly revealed The Batman sets.

LEGO Marvel Mech Sets Rumored for 2022

Wolverine Mech (76202) – $9.99
Iron Man Mech (76203) – $9.99
Black Panther Mech (76204) – $9.99

If these rumors are true, it marks the return of a fan favorite character in Wolverine. There have been three Wolverine minifigures in the past with the last one being four years ago from the Mighty Micros sets. If you remember from a few months back, I reported that the packaging for the LEGO Marvel Studios Collectible Minifigures (71031) may have put a teaser for Wolverine’s return and it looks like it may be confirmed.

THE GRANDEST SHIP IN HISTORY JOINS THE LEGO® FAMILY AS LEGO TITANIC IS UNVEILED

7 OCTOBER 2021: The LEGO Group has revealed an authentic replica of the most famous ship of all time, the RMS Titanic. For the first time, fans can now recreate the luxury liner in detailed LEGO® brick form, 110 years since it was launched in Belfast in 1911.

The LEGO Titanic is one of the longest and largest LEGO models to date, made up of 9,090 pieces, making it a truly immersive building challenge for LEGO fans and budding historians alike.

As well as its sheer size, the Titanic was known for its unrivaled grandeur, which has been faithfully captured in the set. Beneath the unmistakable exterior of the LEGO Titanic, there are several interior rooms to explore including the First-Class grand staircase which spans six decks and the Jacobean-style dining saloon which was located on the ship’s D deck.

The Titanic was also renowned for its unparalleled speed, outclassing other ships of the era, and in the lower decks, fans will find a replica of the state-of-the-art engine room.

LEGO Star Wars Dark Trooper Battle Pack (75324) Rumored for 2022

There been rumors that LEGO will be making a LEGO Star Wars Dark Trooper Battle Pack (75324) based on season two of The Mandalorian. It is said that it will retail for $29.99 and include three Dark Troopers and might include Luke Skywalker as well. Since it’s a battle pack, there should be some sort of small build in it as well but it’s hard to say what it is because they really have nothing if watched the scene. I’m sure LEGO will throw in some turrets to get the parts in. If this battle pack is true, who’s ready to have an army of Luke Skywalkers?

LEGO Ninjago Seabound Official Trailer

LEGO has released the official trailer for the upcoming LEGO Ninjago season, Seabound. This season’s main storyline focuses on Nya who has some issues with her elemental powers. There are some new LEGO Ninjago sets that have already been released to coincide with the upcoming episodes.

Oh no! Something has happened to Nya’s elemental powers! She needs your help to figure out what went wrong. Let’s go – we don’t have much time!

When Nya and the other ninja realize it might have something to do with a mysterious recurring energy signal, her mom, Maya, P.I.X.A.L., Zane, Lloyd and Jay, go to the deepest part of the Endless Sea in search of answers. Hop on board their shiny new under-water ship, the Hydro-Bounty. It’s time to get this mission started!

When the ninja run into the Prince Kalmaar, the evil Prince of Merlopia, things go from bad to worse. He already has one amulet, but if he gets his hands on both the Storm and Wave amulets, he could unleash the deadly sea-serpent, Wojira. That would not be good for NINJAGO® City!

Just like her mother before her, Nya is the Master of Water, but without the full force of her powers, how will she overcome the two villains of the deep-sea and save NINJAGO? Join the crew on their epic Seabound adventure to find out. It just takes some courage, sacrifice and a little help from your friends.

LEGO Bricktober (2021?) Sets Hitting Toys R Us Canada

LEGO Games Logo Update and Rumored Overwatch Set Coming Soon

LEGO has updated the logo for their LEGO Games subtheme and there are rumors that Overwatch may be part of this gaming umbrella. It is reported that LEGO Games will become it’s own theme and will include everything that is related to gaming from various video games to the Bits N’ Bricks podcasts. LEGO could just put various game related sets under the general LEGO Games theme without actually having a dedicated theme for them which is a smart move.

On to the Overwatch rumors, it has been reported that there could be a LEGO Overwatch set 76980 coming in November featuring the Null Sector Titan. If you follow Overwatch lore, the Titan was part of the Omnic Crisis at the Paris attack. The set is rumored to have 901 pieces and priced at 79.99€. We’ve been waiting for more sets from Overwatch but the game has died down a lot since the last wave of sets but hopefully Overwatch 2 can reinvigorate the line in 2022.

LEGO Rebuild the World Celebrates Problem Solving

In a newly released film, it shows a Knight trying to cross a bridge but fails to until the town comes together to figure out a way across. Be sure to keep a close eye around the 0:42 mark where you can spot an Easter egg that fans really want in LEGO form.

New LEGO® campaign shows how creative problem solving can reunite and Rebuild the World

Billund, September 20th, 2021 – The LEGO Group has launched a playful new iteration to its global Rebuild the World brand campaign.

The main film is centered on the story of a Knight whose attempts to cross a river to see a friendly bear keep failing. Seeing the Knight’s dilemma, a whole town comes together and pools their varied skills, perspectives and talents to find a way to reunite the friends. As the Knight finally conquers the river crossing, the film playfully reveals how the story and the solution to the challenge have been imaginatively conceived by a group of children building, unbuilding and rebuilding through LEGO® play.

The LEGO System in Play has long been the ultimate platform for creative problem solving. Just as the children in this campaign come together to build and test different solutions,

It already has been a few weeks since the movie came out so if you still haven’t seen it yet, there will be some spoilers. I will not be including the Shang-Chi and The Great Protector (30454) polybag as it is just a promo set.


Escape from The Ten Rings (76176)

This set is based towards the middle of the movie where Shang-Chi, Katy, and Xialing have been captured by Wenwu and locked in the dungeons and find Trevor Slattery along with Morris. They eventually escape and get to the parking lot and steal Razor Fist’s custom BMW. The set features a yellow car while in the movie, it has more of a blue/purple color. Although the movie does have a motorcycle chase, it did not have Wenwu or Razor Fist giving chase. Lastly, there were no turrets shown either. Shang-Chi and Katy also didn’t get their dragon scale armor until the climax of the movie.

I feel that LEGO was just trying to fit a majority of the main characters into a set and it worked to an extent. I wish Shang-Chi and Katy still had their casual outfits while Wenwu had his white shirt. Obviously, Trevor couldn’t be a minifigure because he was a surprise in the movie and didn’t want to spoil that. Xialing had to be split off for the … Continue

LEGO Toys R Us Bricktober 2021 Sets Revealed

Toys R Us Singapore has revealed three of the four LEGO Bricktober 2021 sets. As we know by now, the Bricktober sets are exclusive to Toys R Us and the Asian market is the only place that has them as promotional sets. The sets will be free with purchases of $69 and they feature fairy tales depicted in microscale builds on top of a book cover.

There’s no word if these sets will be outside of the APAC region since they look like really nice sets that many fans would like to have. Note that these are promotional sets and do not fall under the regional exclusives tag which are typical of these kinds of sets.

Hansel and Gretel – 9/24 – 10/7
Jack and the Beanstalk – 10/8 – 10/15

LEGO Japan Teases Bricktober 2021 Sets

LEGO Japan has released a teaser for what could be the upcoming LEGO Bricktober 2021 sets. The video shows a brick-built book with the caption “once upon a time, somewhere.” As we know by now, the Bricktober promotions have mainly been centered in the Asian markets in the month of October. North America used to have them at Toys R Us but there’s been nothing here ever since the toy store chain shut down a few years ago in the US. LEGO Stores and the LEGO Shop usually don’t have anything going on for Bricktober which is a shame since there’s no alternative to getting them besides the secondary market or if you have connections.

LEGO Monkie Kid Continuing Through 2023

A few days ago, LEGO Vice President of Design Matthew Ashton did a Q&A on Instagram and he listed off some themes he has been put in charge of for 2023 and some of them may surprise you. As VP of Design, he has his hands full for quite a few product lines for 2023 which include City, Friends, Creator, Classic, Technic, Speed Champions, Monkie Kid, Ninjago, Collectible Minifigures, and DOTS.

What’s most interesting is that Monkie Kid will continue releasing products for the next few years. Although Monkie Kid is a very unique theme that caters mostly to the Asian market, I’m not really sure if it’s that popular in the west. They’ve recently announced that the show will finally be available in the US through Amazon Kids+ but it seems quite late since a lot of people have been waiting over a year to watch it and the hype for the theme has substantially cooled down. Original IPs tend to do well with LEGO and they usually run for about two years but if Monkie Kid extends to 2023, that’ll be four years which makes it one of the longer running ones and that isn’t a bad thing.

It is stated that there will be 12 minifigures and will be coming out in the spring at the normal $4.99 price point. As always, this should be treated as a rumor until LEGO announces it.

LEGO x adidas NBA Shirts Revealed

adidas Philippines has released a new line of NBA t-shirts featuring some NBA stars as LEGO minifigures. These shirts show James Harden, Trae Young, Donovan Mitchell, and Damian Lillard with their respective logos. The shirts are a continuation of LEGO’s multi-year partnership with adidas to create products geared towards sports and active lifestyles. What’s interesting is that the NBA is now also somewhat involved and we haven’t seen any LEGO NBA products since 2003. It’s a long shot but I hope we will see some NBA licensed products even though they can only feature athletes that have signed with adidas.

It was also stated in the press release that a new line of LEGO Monkie Kid sets will be available later this fall.

Obviously, this is sort of a misstep from LEGO as the show that many have been waiting to watch will now be behind a paywall. For a short while, the episodes were up on YouTube in Cantonese, albiet illegally, but at least I was able to watch the first season without issues.

Star Wars has released the official trailer for the upcoming Disney+ LEGO Star Wars Terrifying Tales. The show was announced last month and it takes place after Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker at Darth Vader’s Castle where his servant Vaneé tells three stories that are linked to ancient artifacts and iconic villains in the Star Wars Universe. The show will air on Disney+ starting on October 1.

After the events of “The Rise of Skywalker,” Poe and BB-8 must make an emergency landing on the volcanic planet Mustafar where they meet the greedy and conniving Graballa the Hutt who has purchased Darth Vader’s castle and is renovating it into the galaxy’s first all-inclusive Sith-inspired luxury hotel. While waiting for his X-wing to be repaired, Poe, BB-8, Graballa, and Dean (a plucky and courageous young boy who works as Graballa’s mechanic) venture deep into the mysterious castle with Vader’s loyal servant, Vaneé. Along the way, Vaneé shares three creepy stories linked to ancient artifacts and iconic villains from across all eras of Star Wars. As Vaneé spins his tales and lures our heroes deeper into the shadowy underbelly of the castle, a sinister plan emerges. With the help of Dean, Poe and BB-8 will have to face their fears, stop an ancient evil from rising, and escape to make it back to their friends.
