LEGO Harry Potter Wizarding Duels: Potter vs Malfoy Book Set – Pre-Order on Amazon

There’s a new LEGO Harry Potter book set coming out in a few months called Wizarding Duels: Potter vs Malfoy. The book set includes two paperback activity books, a double-sided pop-up featuring different parts of Hogwarts, and minifigures of Harry Potter and Draco Malfoy. The activity books are called Magical Rivals and Gryffindor vs Slytherin which I believe are both new. The minifigures aren’t exclusive but this is another way to get them in their school outfits. The most interesting thing for me is the pop-up insert which has an unique art form that I like although you can’t really put anything on the pop-out sections. LEGO Harry Potter Wizarding Duels: Potter vs Malfoy will be released on September 7 for $14.99 and you can pre-order it today on Amazon.

LEGO Comic Creator Returns for SDCC at Home 2021

With Comic Con at Home 2021 coming to a close soon and if you haven’t done it yet, LEGO still has their LEGO Comic Creator available for the first 10,000 participants. It is the same as last year where you can create your own LEGO minifigure and choose a universe between Star Wars, Spider-Man, or Batman to build a story around. This is the same as last year’s activity when Comic Con was shut down as well. There is a limit of three comics per house hold so you can pretty much get all three stories unless you have more than one child.

LEGO Adults Welcome Catalog Hitting Mailboxes

LEGO Adults Welcome Catalog

If you get LEGO catalogs in the mail, you may or may not have received a new Adults Welcome catalog which has been the talk on various forums in recent days. The pages have a more higher quality feel to it and the covers have a matte feeling to them. The catalog basically shows some of the sets that are listed as 18+ with some product details. LEGO has given some insight on it:

It was a test mailed only to select individuals in the US. It was super-targeted, although I don’t know their criteria for selection. Most households were reported to never have made a LEGO purchase before.

Nobody knows what the criteria is to get one but if you did get one, congrats because it looks like there weren’t that many that went out. It’s cool to see that LEGO is branching out to AFOLs using physical media since most mainly rely on information digitally nowadays.

LEGO Seasonal Christmas Penguin (40498) Teaser

A few days ago, we got a first look at some of the new 2021 LEGO Seasonal Halloween sets and on the back of one of the sets, we also can see a future Christmas set as well. On the back of the Halloween Owl (40497), we can also see the Christmas Penguin (40498) which includes a penguin with a small Christmas on top of a snowy base. We can probably guess the price point is $14.99 which is the same as the other sets for 2021 but the piece count is still unknown.

LEGO Releases Statement Regarding LEGO VIDIYO Cancellation Rumors

Earlier, there were reports that the new LEGO VIDIYO theme was potentially being cancelled and fan media picked up on it and as a result, LEGO has released a statement about the theme and what we can expect in the future.

It seems like corporate speak but they have been taking feedback from the community regarding the sets and the app and will be piloting some new ideas in 2022 and releasing new play experiences in 2023.

We wanted to provide you with an update regarding LEGO VIDIYO.

As you know, we launched LEGO VIDIYO in January to connect with children in a completely new way, blending music, digital play and LEGO building in a fun and unique way. The product tested extremely well during development and has received really positive feedback from those children and families who have played with it.

We’ve seen a positive response to the launch, but we’ve also received feedback from people that we could make the play experience across the app, BeatBits, music and minifigures even simpler. So, we’re taking that onboard and together with Universal Music Group are going to pilot some new ideas in 2022, then release new play experiences in 2023 and beyond.

LEGO VIDIYO is very much still available, the current products will continue to be sold in stores and marketed globally, and we’re continuing to support this fantastic play experience, including new updates and fun challenges to the app to inspire children’s creative music video making.

Thank you for your continued support of the LEGO

LEGO VIDIYO Theme Rumored to be Cancelled

There’s some big news coming out of Promobricks regarding the new LEGO VIDIYO theme and it potentially being already cancelled. They are reporting that the third wave is no longer being shipped to retailers and orders for them are being cancelled.

It’s not really a big surprise but there have been reports of the sets being heavily discounted around the world, even after the first wave which suggest the sets weren’t selling well.

There were some cool sets in the second wave and the minifigures were pretty unique but the apprehension of using the app is one of the deal breakers for people to buy the sets. Of course, these are just rumors until it is actually confirmed.

Update: LEGO has released a statement about the future of the theme.

LEGO Ideas Home Alone McCallister’s House (21329) Rumored Details

There’s a new rumor about the next LEGO Ideas set to be released and it is said to be the Home Alone McCallister’s House (21329). Coming from brick_clicker on Instagram, it is said the set will have a late September release with a $100 price point. The original project proposed the maximum of 3,000 pieces and it included a full house but if the price point is true, there was some compromise to keep the price reasonable. It may just end up being a facade of the house with the back open to show the details inside similar to 123 Sesame Street (21324). Again these are only rumors until LEGO officially announces it, whenever that is.

LEGO Seasonal Halloween Owl (40497) Review

LEGO Seasonal Halloween Owl (40497)

LEGO will be releasing a new LEGO Seasonal set soon with the Halloween Owl (40497). As of this writing, there’s no information yet on the pricing and piece count for it but going by the previous Seasonal sets for 2021, it may be priced at $14.99. If you look closely at the back of the box, it also shows the Christmas Penguin (40498).

LEGO Seasonal Halloween Owl (40497)

LEGO Seasonal Halloween Owl (40497)

Like with the previous sets, it comes with a buildable base which has an Easter egg inside. For the owl, there’s a little bat built in.

LEGO Seasonal Halloween Owl (40497)

At the floor level, there’s a little pumpkin patch with some pretty plump pumpkins made with some modified 1 x 2 x 1 2/3 with studs on the sides. The 1×2 slopes give the shape of the pumpkins.

The owl is built similiarly to the BrickHeadz using some modified 1 x 2 x 1 2/3 bricks so that the outside can have some details. The front of it looks pretty bland with the tan on the chest.

LEGO Seasonal Halloween Owl (40497)

The back has a bit more detail with the claw piece being used as fur on the tail.

LEGO Seasonal Halloween Owl (40497)

The wings are on ball joints so you can show it flapping its wings if you like.

LEGO Seasonal Halloween Owl (40497)

The head has the most details and it shows it with an “angry” face. This is achieved by using some claw toe pieces for the eyebrows and some slopes at the top of the head.

LEGO Seasonal Halloween Owl (40497)

The whole owl is able to spin as it sits on a turntable piece. Be careful of having the wings … Continue

LEGO Seasonal LEGO Seasonal Spider & Haunted House Pack (40493)

LEGO has revealed a new Seasonal Halloween ornament set with the Spider & Haunted House Pack (40493). The set has 132 pieces but we don’t have details of the price or release date as of this writing.

LEGO Seasonal LEGO Seasonal Spider & Haunted House Pack (40493)

LEGO Seasonal LEGO Seasonal Spider & Haunted House Pack (40493)

The spider has a BrickHeadz feel to it with the style it uses to create it. The eyes are huge compared to the body and it gives off a cartoony look. The legs are on hinges so they have some movement to them. There’s a Technic connector at the top to tie the included string on.

LEGO Seasonal LEGO Seasonal Spider & Haunted House Pack (40493)

The other build is the haunted house which looks to be inspired by the LEGO Monster Fighters Haunted House (10228). It has the sand green color scheme but it also has lots of stickers for the window detailing around the house. Like with the spider, it also has a Technic connnector to tie the string on.

LEGO Seasonal LEGO Seasonal Spider & Haunted House Pack (40493)

Overall, this is a cute little set and you can use it for Halloween decorations. The bad thing about it is that the amount of stickers on it for such a small set.

LEGO Technic Heavy-Duty Tow Truck (42128) Review

LEGO Technic Heavy-Duty Tow Truck (42128)

Next month, LEGO will be releasing some new flagship LEGO Technic sets and the first one I want to take a look at is the Heavy-Duty Tow Truck (42128). The set has 2,017 pieces and will retail for $149.99. I will preface this review by saying that I do not do Technic that much but I’ll try my best to cover the main parts of the set.

LEGO Technic Heavy-Duty Tow Truck (42128)

There are numbered bags to four as well as separate bags for some of the Technic beams and rubber tubes. For such a large amount of parts in the set, I’m surprised LEGO packed all the parts in only four sets of bags. Also included is one large instruction book as well as a decent sized sticker sheet.

Build

The first set of bags are used for the frame of the Tow Truck. Here, you’ll find the main gear mechanism for the various features in the set. It may look complicated to non-Technic folk like me but it’ll make sense as you continue building.

LEGO Technic Heavy-Duty Tow Truck (42128)

LEGO Technic Heavy-Duty Tow Truck (42128)

As we move to the second set of bags, we are focusing on the middle and back of the truck, mainly the wheel lift arm and the rotating boom. The lift arm uses a piston to move the arm up and down using the pump right behind the cab. You can lift the whole rig up by turning the front-left gear on the left side of the truck.

LEGO Harry Potter Hermione’s Study Desk (30392) Polybag Revealed

There’s a new LEGO Harry Potter polybag that has surfaced on the LEGO building instructions page with Hermione’s Study Desk (30392). The polybag consists of 31 pieces but there’s no word yet on the pricing or if it’s a gift with purchase promotional item. If you can buy it, it’ll most likely be $4.99.

It features Hermione with the Hogwarts robes along with a desk and it even has a stand for the owl even though she didn’t really have an owl. The polybag also includes a mystery wizard card. Since they are randomly inserted into sets, this may be the cheapest way to collect them aside from buying directly from the secondary market.

LEGO BrickHeadz La Catrina (40492) Review

LEGO BrickHeadz La Catrina (40492)

LEGO latest offering for the LEGO BrickHeadz line is something that’s really interesting and different than what they’ve been doing which is La Catrina (40492). La Catrina is designed by José Guadalupe Posada and is the icon of the Mexican Día de Muertos, or Day of the Dead. The set has 141 pieces and will be available on August 1 for $9.99.

LEGO BrickHeadz La Catrina (40492)

LEGO BrickHeadz La Catrina (40492)

She wears a very colorful dress that’s in magenta with green and yellow accents. The dress is pretty fluffy as shown with the slopes on all four sides. The front of the dress has a printed 1×4 brick to show the collar.

LEGO BrickHeadz La Catrina (40492)

LEGO BrickHeadz La Catrina (40492)

La Catrina’s face is also printed with various tiles and it is decorated with some traditional designs as seen on other art pieces such as the dots around the face and the stitched mouth.

LEGO BrickHeadz La Catrina (40492)

Her magenta colored hat is filled with decorations in the front lip which includes some flowers.

LEGO BrickHeadz La Catrina (40492)

Overall, the LEGO BrickHeadz La Catrina (40492) is a pretty unique BrickHeadz since it doesn’t really fit into any of their subthemes. I suppose it could be be Halloween related since the character is to celebrate the Day of the Dead. I really like the designs on it and I’m sure fans will customize it to their liking.

The LEGO® Group has added yet another cult vehicle to its portfolio of cars, with the reveal of the latest version of the ubiquitous LEGO Volkswagen T2 Camper Van, complete with pop-top roof with tent and ready for summer road trip adventures.

The new LEGO Volkswagen T2 Camper Van is based on its namesake of the late 1960s and 1970s and succeeds the much-loved previous LEGO Creator Expert Volkswagen T1 Camper Van, adding many new features in the process. The new set is larger than before and distinguished by a new paint colour, a sliding door, as well as the trademark T2 wraparound Baywindow front windscreen and a new yet instantly recognisable ‘face.’

Under the hood, the set also features working steering. The LEGO Volkswagen T2 Camper Van’s detailed camping interior is also fully equipped for the open road, with opening cabinets, fridge, sink and a gas stove with a teapot. Days at the beach are suitably catered for, as the set comes with a set of folding chairs and of course a surfboard, while a folding rear bench seat provides a comfortable place to stay under starry skies.

Volkswagen Campers are of course synonymous with customisation, and the LEGO Volkswagen T2 Camper Van set is fully prepared for

LEGO Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings Movie Poster

What is Going on with LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga?

One of the main questions I’ve been getting recently is what is going on with TT Games and LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga and if it will ever be released. Honestly, I have no idea what is happening with the company. The game has been delayed a few times now due to COVID with no major updates about the game even during E3 last month which was very surprising.

Last week, there was a Xbox Two podcast that suggested that Warner Bros. was looking to sell NetherRealm Studios and TT Games according to some documents seen by Windows Central’s Jez Corden. However that was all disputed as TheGamer got a response from Remi Sklar of Warner Bros. saying that NetherRealm and TT Games will remain a part of Warner Bros. Games and are included in the Warner Media Discovery merger so that debunked that report.

In addition, there have been a lot of TT Games employees that have been leaving the company in the past year, some of whom have been working on The Skywalker Saga. As we know in our regular jobs, replacing people is sometimes difficult and new employees need time to get acclimated to what they are working on.

Although I’m still excited for the game personally, other people may be losing their interest for it. At this point, I wouldn’t be totally surprised if the game was delayed until next year. As a gamer myself, people need updates on the status of games and with TT Games not giving any, it … Continue

LEGO Listed as San Diego Comic Con 2021 at Home Exhibitor

San Diego Comic Con 2021 at Home will be happening in a few weeks and the panel and exhibitor lists have been revealed and it looks like LEGO will be doing something during the event. It doesn’t look like they will be doing any panels but they are on the exhibitor list which makes me think there will be some LEGO exclusives.

As we know by now, LEGO usually does exclusives during SDCC and there were even a few sets and minifigures last year but they weren’t revealed until months after the event. It looks like this year could be a little different and they may be selling something as they are more prepared this year than last year when the pandemic was in full swing.

Other companies have already been revealing and doing pre-orders for their exclusives so it’ll be interesting to see if LEGO announces any exclusives or reveals any new sets. Obviously, this is just my thinking and LEGO may not be doing anything at all but we’ll see. San Diego Comic Con 2021 at Home will be happening in a few weeks from July 23-25.

LEGO Gives Update on BrickLink Designer Program

LEGO just finished a roundtable regarding the BrickLink Designer Program regarding some of the concerns from the initial launch last week. There was massive traffic to BrickLink compared to Black Friday shopping. In fact, somehow there were actually 10,000 Castle in the Forest sets sold when there was originally a limit of 5,000 total pre-orders per project. As a result, LEGO/BrickLink will allow the other projects to also reach 10,000 pre-orders as well. The first round of crowdfunding will reopen again on August 3 to allow that to happen. The Castle will not reopen for pre-orders since it already reach 10k pre-orders already. This will in turn push the dates of the next crowdfunding rounds back even further.

There will now be a limit of one pre-order per person to allow more fans to get their hands on the sets. If you saw, resellers were selling the Castle in the Forest for about $800 after it was the first set to sell out. LEGO has also taken action against resellers on eBay to not allow scalpers to profit from it.

As far as designs and pricing for the next projects not mentioned in the press release below, LEGO may reveal them a bit early give buyers details of them before crowdfunding starts.

LEGO AFOL Survey – What Are You Passionate About?

If you’re an AFOL, LEGO is doing a survey on what you are passionate about. The reason for it is to better understand the AFOL audience and what else they like. The survey is open to everyone and it takes about 15 minutes to complete. The feedback back they receive will help them understand how to engage with the community.

As an AFOL, we know you are passionate about building – but what else are you passionate about? Do current sets support your interest? How do you connect with the community? How engaged are you with the LEGO Group?

Our department is conducting a new survey on AFOL Passion. We want to answer these questions so we can better understand our AFOL audience and what they love the most. We have done similar surveys in the past but it’s time to update our information to stay up-to-date 🙂

The survey is anonymous and open to everyone, everywhere. We estimate it’ll take about 15 minutes to answer, and the feedback you give us will help us better understand how to engage with the AFOL community.

Please take the share and share it here. Right now we have no end date and will close the survey when our response rate reaches a set threshold.

BrickLink to Give Update Next Week on BrickLink Designer Program

The first crowdfunding round for the BrickLink Designer Program came and went just like that and it didn’t go over well with some fans with some of the issues they had. They have put out a statement saying they’ve read your comments and frustrations and will give an update some time next week.

As we know by now, there were some glaring issues right from the get-go. First was the site crashes when the pre-orders started. Next was the 5,000 limit which went way quicker than expected. There was a recent article by Jay’s Brick Blog stating that the 5,000 limit was intentional due to manufacturing constraints and if they made more, the satisfaction of owning a limited edition set goes down. I can tell you that there are more unsatisfied fans than happy ones right now.

The 40 day crowdfunding time that they provided was way overestimated as the projects reached the goal in less than a day. Lastly was the purchasing limit of five per project. This allowed mainly scalpers to buy up stock and left legit buyers out.

We’ll see what BrickLink has to say next week and if they address some of these issues. Were you able to get what you wanted? Personally, I just bought the Sheriff’s Safe.

BrickLink Designer Program First Crowdfunding Round Goals Reached

The first crowdfunding round for the BrickLink Designer Program launched this morning and after about eight hours, we now know which sets will be produced. After some overload issues on the site this morning, fans were slowly able to pre-order the projects that they wanted to see produced and the first five to reach that goal are Castle in the Forest, Great Fishing Boat, Sheriff’s Safe, Pursuit of Flight, and Kakapo. BIONICLE Legends and Particle Accelerator are the two projects that are now eliminated and will not be made.

Castle in the Forest was the fastest one to sell out 5,000 copies and it hit that goal in about 40 minutes after pre-orders started. Following that was Great Fishing Boat and the others slowly followed. As of this post, Pursuit of Flight and Kakapo are the ones that hasn’t reached full pre-order capacity.

At first glance, I thought that BIONICLE Legends would’ve been one of the top five since they have a large but niche community but judging by the progress bar, it doesn’t look like it even it 1,500 pre-orders.

Note that the Mountain View Observatory has been pushed to a future crowdfunding round.

Were you able to place your orders and which one(s) did you get? Were you satisfied with how the pre-orders went? I thought it was smooth after the initial rush and checkout on the LEGO Shop was also nice. One complaint that I saw was that there was a max limit of five of a particular project that people could buy. … Continue

Mountain View Observatory Not Ready for BrickLink Designer Program Crowdfunding

The BrickLink Designer Program is set to kick off the crowdfunding stage for the projects that were production ready. For those who were waiting to pre-order Mountain View Observatory, you won’t be able to because it has been moved to another round due to the high complexity of it. The last update on it was on May 14 for it to get ready but it wasn’t enough time to do so. Hopefully, it’ll be ready for either of the next crowdfunding rounds.

Unfortunately, due to high complexity of this project, it will no longer be included in Round 1 crowdfunding. It will be available for crowdfunding in another round. Please check back for updates.

There will still be seven projects available for pre-order tomorrow which includes the Sheriff’s Safe, Pursuit of Flight, BIONICLE Legends, Kakapo, Castle in the Forest, Particle Accelerator, and Great Fishing Boat.

On a side note, LEGO is taking feedback on the event and hopefully they learn from it if they decide to do more in the future.

Disney Asked LEGO to Rename New LEGO Star Wars Slave I Set

Yesterday at LEGO CON 2021, LEGO announced three new LEGO Star Wars Mandalorian sets one of which is called Boba Fett’s Starship (75312). Fans of Star Wars know that it is originally called the Slave I and was wondering why it isn’t called that when previous sets were also called the Slave I.

Speaking at Fan Media Days, LEGO Star Wars Design Director Jens Kronvold Frederiksen said that Disney have asked for the Slave I to be renamed Boba Fett’s Starship, as noted by Jedi News. It was also stated that dropping the Slave I name is “probably not something which has been announced publicly but it is just something that Disney doesn’t want to use any more.”

Disney has moved away from the word “slave” in past years with merchandise and marketing of “Slave Leia” and it looks like it has also been retired from the iconic ship’s name. Since all the previous LEGO Star Wars Slave I sets have been retired, you can only find them on the secondary market. The new Boba Fett’s Starship will be available starting on August 1 for $49.99.

LEGO CON 2021 Post-Event Press Release

LEGO has just released a press release regarding LEGO CON 2021 and its “great success” for the event. I wouldn’t say it was great but it was entertaining here and there. I did like the interviews with the various LEGO designers as well as NASA astronaut Mike Massimino. The interactivity with viewers was also decent especially with the LEGO DOTS mosaic.

There were also some things that I didn’t really like about it. The main thing was the connection issues with the stream. I was watching/listening to it at work and suddenly there was silence. I thought my network went down but it was the actual stream that crashed and gave an error. I saw that others also had the same issue and I think it happened a few times.

As for the set reveals, there were a couple of them, one for LEGO Ideas and one for LEGO Star Wars. They announced the We Love Sport! set which was the Foosball Table but some people already knew that because LEGO accidentally posted it a few days ago before taking it down. The other annnoucement was for the Summer 2021 Mandalorian sets. One disappointment was that many fans were expecting the reveal of the UCS Republic Gunship which didn’t happen at all. The other “reveals” like the new LEGO Super Mario range and LEGO VIDIYO Boombox were already known about so they weren’t really reveals.

Overall, the event was a decent event that could be improved on if LEGO decides to make it an annual event.… Continue

LEGO adidas Originals Superstar (10282) Delayed at adidas

For those who have been waiting for the new adidas Superstar shoe and the LEGO adidas Originals Superstar (10282) set to launch on July 1 over on adidas’s site, there is some bad news as both items have been delayed. We have been notified that due to some unexpected transportation delays, it won’t be available on adidas’s channel until July 30 but it will still be be available on July 1 on the LEGO Shop. This is only relevant if you have some rewards over on adidas but I’m assuming most of you will be purchasing from LEGO.

There have been unexpected transportation delays on both the Superstar wearable and Superstar LEGO set, meaning adidas will be launching the Superstar wearable shoe and 10282 Superstar LEGO set July 30th instead of July 1st through adidas. 10282 will still be available via LEGO channels July 1st.

LEGO adidas Originals Superstar (40486) GWP Details

LEGO adidas Originals Superstar (40486)

Yesterday we did our review on the LEGO adidas Originals Superstar (40486) gift with purchase set and if you didn’t see it yet, we revealed the details on how to get it. To get the 92 piece set, you’ll have to make a purchase of $85/€95/£95 from July 1-25, while supplies last. If you look at the price threshold, it is a little bit more than the 10282 buildable shoe which costs $79.99, if you were to get it. That means you’ll need to add a cheaper item or two to get you over the hump. An interesting sales tactic from LEGO if you ask me. As I mentioned in my review, the adidas GWP is a cute set but I don’t think it is worth a $85 purchase.

LEGO Ideas Earth Globe Teased in Video?

Yesterday, LEGO announced they have revealed the first prototype LEGO brick made from recycled plastic. In the video, could LEGO have teased part of the Earth Globe which was the winner of the First 2020 Review Stage on LEGO Ideas? It is currently under development with at least two more projects to be released ahead of it so there’s still a long ways away from being ready. The land masses have some updated coloring and parts for the terrain but the building style is pretty similar. Of course, this is just speculation and it’s just a brick-built globe LEGO had but it does make you wonder just a little bit. Thanks to Federico for the eagle eye.

LEGO adidas Originals Superstar (40486) Review

LEGO adidas Originals Superstar (40486)

Last week, we got our first look at the LEGO adidas Originals Superstar (40486) gift with purchase set that was shown in the designer video for the larger 10282 version. This 92 piece set will be available from July 1-25 with purchases of $85/€95/£95 or more on the LEGO Shop. You do not need to purchase the buildable adidas Superstar to get it but it will look nice next to it.

LEGO adidas Originals Superstar (40486)

LEGO adidas Originals Superstar (40486)

The set comes with a minifigure dressed as a adidas shoebox. The box is actually the 2×3 brick costume piece that we’ve seen before in previous Collectible Minifigures series with a tiled sticker on the front. He wears a white cap and has a microphone and boombox as accessories.

LEGO adidas Originals Superstar (40486)

LEGO adidas Originals Superstar (40486)

The sole of the shoe is made up of plates with the front using a modified 4×4 and the heel using a round 4×4 plate to get the angles. I will say that the back heel is very flimsy until you attach it to the sole. To get the look of the tongue, it uses a 2×6 plate with T-Pieces for the laces. There’s also an adidas sticker on a 2×2 slope at the end. The side designs uses printed 1×2 tiles.

From I’ve read online, fans really dig the smaller LEGO adidas Originals Superstar (40486) build and it does look really cute. The threshold to get it is a little high for what you get but it is a licensed product. I would say $45-$55 would have been a better purchasing limit for it.

LEGO Reveals First Prototype LEGO Brick Made From Recycled Plastic

LEGO has revealed the first prototype LEGO brick made from recycled plastic. Continuing their journey to make LEGO products from sustainable materials, the new brick uses PET plastic from discarded bottles. It has taken the team of 150 people over three years to meet several of their quality, safety and play requirements, including clutch power. A one-litre plastic PET bottle will provide enough raw material for ten 2×4 LEGO bricks. It’ll still be a while before we see recycled material bricks in LEGO sets as their next phase of testing will take at least another year.

New LEGO Elephant Molds Teased Back in March

Designer George Gilliatt has disclosed that the new elephants in the upcoming summer 2021 LEGO City Wildlife Rescue Operation (60302) were actually teased back in March in the LEGO Creator Safari Wildlife Tree House (31116).

The Wildlife Rescue Operation will be available starting on August 1 and it is one of two sets in the wave with the new adult elephant molds, the other set being the Wildlife Rescue Camp (60307).

LEGO adidas Originals Superstar (10282) Designer Video

A few days ago, LEGO announced the LEGO adidas Originals Superstar (10282) buildable shoe and today, they dropped the designer video for it. Designer Florian Müller talks about the details of the shoe including some new elements such as the 5×5 dome piece that will most likely be in future sets. He also goes into detail about the box which is a replica of a real shoebox.

Also almost midway through the video, LEGO has teased the LEGO adidas Originals Superstar (40486) gift with purchase set. It’ll most likely be available starting in July when the shoe drops but we’ll see if you’ll actually need to purchase the shoe to get it.

LEGO Volkswagen T2 Camper Van (10279) Rumored for 2021

Continuing with some of rumors of new LEGO summer 2021 sets, there’s now one for a LEGO Volkswagen T2 Camper Van (10279). The original Volkswagen T1 Camper Van was finally retired last year after being on the market for a whopping nine years and it looks like there’s a replacement for it coming soon. There’s no word on piece count or the color scheme but it is reported that it could retail for 179.99€ which is a lot more expensive than the T1. This could suggest that it will have more pieces than the T1 as well.

LEGO Technic Ford Raptor F-150 (42126) Rumored for October Release

There’s a new rumor that has surfaced for a LEGO Technic Ford Raptor F-150 (42126). It is said to have 1,379 pieces and will retail for 139.99€. The release date for it would be on October 1. The color scheme is rumored to be bright orange with black accents similar to the one above. The Raptor is one of the more recognizable Ford trucks and I’m curious to see if LEGO is able to pull it off given their ingenuity of using parts to get the right angles on Technic vehicles.

LEGO adidas Originals Superstar (10282)

LEGO dropped a surprise announcement yesterday with the LEGO adidas Originals Superstar (10282) which is part of their ongoing collaboration with adidas. The set has 731 pieces and will retail for $79.99. Since LEGO introduced the new 18+ designation for some sets, it may attract people that aren’t really fans of LEGO but are fans of a particular item and for this instance, shoes, aka sneakerheads.


Box

Unlike the usual LEGO boxes, the Superstar actually comes in a shoebox which is something that enhances the value of the set a little. It does come LEGO branded throughout including a minifigure head cut-out on one side of the box and the copyright on the other.

LEGO adidas Originals Superstar (10282)

The bottom of the box shows the Superstar with its dimensions.

When you open the lid, you get the 18+ layout showing the Superstar on a black background.

When you cut open the tape, there’s another surprise as it comes with a sheet of tissue paper similar to when you buy a brand new shoe. It covers up the numbered bags and the instructions are at the bottom of the box.

LEGO adidas Originals Superstar (10282)

The inside of the box is also decorated with the adidas logo on the flap and the bottom of the shoe on the bottom of the box.

Included with the set is a booklet of a letter from LEGO Chairman, Thomas Kirk Kristiansen. There are letters in 43 different languages so there’s pretty much something for everyone. You can rip them off to put on the typewriter after you’re finished building.

Build

There are three sections each set of bags are for. 1-4 are for the front frame and keyboard. 5-8 are for the back frame and the inner workings of the carriage. Bags 9-11 are for the platen and ribbon spools.

Bag 1 are the parts used for the frame of the keyboard, most of them having Technic beams.

Bag 2 is for part of the frame for the keyboard. Here you use the arm builds from bag 1 and attach them in the correct sequence. This is easily the most tedious part of the whole build. If you messed up here after completing it, good luck finding the mistake.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
