LEGO Releases Statement Regarding RRP Changes in Western Europe

LEGO has made an official statement regarding reports of LEGO set price increases in Western Europe. LEGO has stated that they have made the recommended retail price more consistent in many countries for 2022 and a majority of the sets will not see price changes. There will be some sets that will have the RRP go up or down depending on the set and country. North America will not see any of these changes.

The LEGO Group has no plans to increase the recommended retail price (RRP) of its portfolio of products.

In Western Europe, we’ve taken steps to make RRP pricing more consistent across different countries from 2022. The RRP of the majority of LEGO sets will not change as a result of this. However, on a small selection of sets the RRP will either go down or up depending on the set and the country.

There are currently no plans to make such changes in other markets.

It’s important to note that the final price charged to shoppers is set by retailers, not the LEGO Group.

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

LEGO has launched a new iteration to their Rebuild the World campaign which 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. Now in its third year, the 2021 Rebuild the World campaign celebrates children as the masters of creative problem solving and shows what can be achieved when people work together to overcome differences or challenges.

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,

LEGO Marvel Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings Movie to Set Comparison

It’s been a while but I’m back with my next installment of movie to LEGO set comparisons and this time it is for Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings. 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

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
Little Red Riding Hood – 10/16 – 10/24

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.

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.

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.

LEGO Announces Pilot Program for New Set Color Schemes

After the accidental reveals of some existing LEGO sets in new color schemes earlier this month, LEGO has officially announced a pilot program for these sets. Unfortunately, they are exclusively doing it over in the UK so the rest of the world won’t be able to participate and there will be limited availability for them. You’ll have until November 30 to get your orders in, while supplies last. The only set that is not exclusive to the UK is the Fiat 500 which ships internationally. Below is a list of what retails have which sets available for purchase.

The LEGO Group is running a pilot with a small number of products to gain a deeper understanding of what our fans want from our portfolio and where they prefer to shop for new or unique products.

The pilot includes variations of some of our existing products, so we can find out more about the colors and sizes of sets that fans of all ages want to see more of in our portfolio.

LEGO 4×4 Mercedes-Benz Zetros Trial Truck (42129) Review

For my other review of the summer 2021 LEGO Technic sets, I have the other larger set in the wave with the 4×4 Mercedes-Benz Zetros Trial Truck (42129). The set has 2,110 pieces and retails for $299.99. It is able to use the newer CONTROL+ system to remotely control it. The parts are packed into bags numbered to six as well as bags for the motors and hub. There is also a very large sticker sheet as well. Again, I’m not all too familiar with Technic so I probably will get some of the terminology wrong.

LEGO Vice President of Design Matthew Ashton Teases New Set Announcement

A few months ago, LEGO released the Everyone is Awesome (40516) which was designed by Vice President of Design Matthew Ashton and it looks like he’ll have another set that will be released later this year. Over on his Instagram, he did a Q&A and someone asked when should we expect Matt Ashton set #2 of this year. He replied with “If everything goes according to plan, there should be an announcement coming out on this fairly soon within the next two or three weeks so watch this space.”

It has been rumored that the set Matthew is referring to could be the LEGO Queer Eye Apartment (10291) set coming out later this year. We’ll just have to wait and see LEGO’s announcement of whatever Matthew is talking about.

LEGO September 2021 Promotions Update

A few days ago, the LEGO September 2021 Store Calendar came out but we were met with a disappointment as it didn’t actually show any promotions for the month except for the in-store one. Earlier today, the LEGO Affiliate Team sent over details for what is going on next month and it looks like there will be more promos for September but it’ll be old ones. From the looks of it, LEGO still has plenty of the August promos left over as pretty much all the main ones have also been pushed to September. The Swing Ship Ride was from June and it’ll also be back.

• LEGO® VIPs will receive a free Swing Ship Ride GWP with any purchase of $85 or more while supplies last from 9/6 – 9/12.

LEGO Star Wars Battles Announced for Apple Arcade

Warner Bros. Games has announced a new LEGO Star Wars game but it’s not The Skywalker Saga but instead, a relaunch of LEGO Star Wars Battles. Coming soon exclusively to Apple Arcade, the game combines LEGO Star Wars characters, vehicles, and locations with real-time, one-versus-one multiplayer battles. Technically, the game isn’t new because it was soft launced in 2019 and the beta was shut down back in July.

It will be available on iPhone, iPad, Mac, and Apple TV for a subscription price of $4.99 with a one month free trial but you’ll need Apple Arcade which costs $14.95-$29.95 depending on your plan.

Last Day for LEGO Ideas Sailboat Adventure (40487) Promotion

Today is the last day for the LEGO Ideas Sailboat Adventure (40487) promotion on the LEGO Shop. You can get it for free with a $200 purchase. It wasn’t too surprising to see it last the whole promotional period due to the high cost to get it. If I was to venture a guess, it’s possible that it could be available again later on if there’s still a lot of stock left over.

LEGO Harry Potter Hogwarts Icons Collectors’ Edition (76391) Release Delayed in North America

The LEGO Harry Potter Hogwarts Icons Collectors’ Edition (76391) was slated to be released on September 2, but LEGO has announced that the set will be delayed in North America. Due to a shipping delay, LEGO will instead open up pre-orders for it on September 2 and it will be available starting on September 15. The rest of the world will have a normal release next Thursday. We’re already used to delayed releases here in North America so the being released two weeks after isn’t really a big deal to some.

The LEGO Harry Potter™ Hogwarts™ Icons Collectors’ Edition will now launch on September 15th in the US, Canada, and Mexico, rather than September 2nd as originally planned due to a shipping delay in the US. The set will be available for online only pre-order at LEGO.com beginning September 2nd. The product will be available in LEGO Retail stores on September 15th.

Spider-Man: Now Way Home Teaser Trailer

The official teaser trailer for Spider-Man: No Way Home just dropped and it might be one of the best trailers I’ve seen in a long time. You may have already seen the leaked footage yesterday but we finally get it in high definition and it makes me more hyped for the movie.

The other two sets are inspired from the first two films but there is one set that uses Spider-Man’s new black and gold suit which is the Spider-Man’s Drone Duel (76195).

LEGO Marvel Shang-Chi and The Great Protector (30454) Review

LEGO Marvel Shang-Chi and The Great Protector (30454)

Earlier this month, LEGO launched the promotion for the LEGO Marvel Shang-Chi and The Great Protector (30454) polybag and in less than a day, the promo ran out of stock on the LEGO Shop. I finally got my order in the mail and here’s a quick look at the polybag.

The Shang-Chi minifigure is same one as in the other two sets in the wave which includes the Escape from The Ten Rings (76176) and Battle at the Ancient Village (76177). He wears a red outfit with black accents on both sides of the torso while the legs are plain black. Some arm printing would’ve been nice but it’s pretty accurate to the on-screen version. He has a pearl-gold staff as an accessory. Surprisingly, he doesn’t have any rings included.

LEGO Marvel Shang-Chi and The Great Protector (30454)

LEGO Marvel Shang-Chi and The Great Protector (30454)

He does have a double-sided head but it’s the usual expressions we’ve seen before with the stern and angry expressions. Also the flesh tone is different from previous minifigures that featured Asian actors. Previously, LEGO used nougat colored parts for Asian characters. LEGO has released a statement about this:

Thanks for sharing your thoughts with us on this matter. Representation in toys is very important and we know the big impact that play has on children. Children are our heroes and we want them to feel both represented and empowered. We are actively looking at ways where we can better represent everyone in our minifigure designs.

In working on representation we are not alone, we work closely with our IP partners to find the

LEGO Build & Talk Adventures Focuses on Online Safety and Privacy

LEGO has launched a new story-style adventure to help families talk about online safety and privacy. Their Build & Talk series helps parents give conversation with kids about online topics and this latest one focuses on online privacy and safe sharing.

The LEGO Group launches new story-style adventure to help families talk about online safety and privacy.

The LEGO Group has expanded its range of tools designed to help families have conversations about digital safety, privacy and wellbeing, after new research found only 1 in 6 parents said their child had confided in them when something bad happened online (1).

The LEGO Group’s ‘Build & Talk’ series helps parents and caregivers have meaningful conversations around challenging yet important online topics with children, aged seven to 11, in a language all children can understand, play. The latest activity pack focuses on two of the biggest concerns for parents when it comes to keeping their children safe online: privacy and safe sharing (2).

In the new story-style adventure, digital explorer and ‘creaturologist’ Ida Switchditonandoff, takes families on a journey through the online world in search of an imaginary LEGO® creature who loves to share. As parents read out the story, children are inspired to have fun building their own ‘Oversharer’ with LEGO bricks. Parents can then use a number of simple talking points to start a conversation with their child about topics such as what makes a good password and how to keep personal data secure.

Kathrine Kirk Muff, VP of Social Responsibility at the LEGO Group, said:

LEGO Ideas/Chronicle Books Puzzle Fan Vote Extended Due to Plagiarism

A few days ago, LEGO Ideas announced that they have extended the deadline for the fan vote on Chronicle Books puzzle competition. This is due to one of the submissions being disqualified due to plagiarism which was The Deer in the Nature category by Les Briques de Loïc. It was ruled that the creation was not entirely the creator’s own work. Fans have tracked down the original work by Grantmasters and although there are differences to them, you can also see the similarities between the two.

The fan vote has been extended to Tuesday, August 24 at 11am CET and people who voted for The Deer will get another vote for the remaining 39 projects. The winners of the competition will be announced no later than September 8.

LEGO Ideas Home Alone McCallister’s House (21330) Updated Rumors

Last month, we reported on some rumors about the upcoming LEGO Ideas Home Alone McCallister’s House and it looks like there are some updates to them. From a recent post by brick_clicker on Instagram, it looks like the details reported before were for the Black Stratocast (21329) which included a September release for VIPs at $100 price point.

The Home Alone house is now reported to have a 21330 set number with a November release. The price of it is now at $250 which is now on point with what we should expect in terms of detailing for the house and not just a facade if it was at $100. It also will have a November release date which is also fair due to the movie being a Christmas movie. Lastly, it is said that it will have five minifigures. We can for sure count in Kevin and the two Wet Bandits, Marv and Harry, but who do you think are the last two? If you were worried about the set being small, what do you think about it now?

If you’ve been holding off on the LEGO Disney Train and Station (71044), you may want to pick it up soon.

The set was released in August 2019 so it had the standard two year run although it seemed way longer than that. Even though it is not listed as a retiring product, take this as an early warning that it will be soon. Thanks to Jari for the heads up.

BrickLink Designer Program Round 1 Sold Out?

It’s been a week since the first round restart of the BrickLink Designer Program and it looks like all five project have sold out or did it? The site says that they have all sold out but there was still a lot of pre-orders open for the Sheriff’s Safe, Kakapo, and Pursuit of Flight as of yesterday. I’m pretty sure that this is just a programming error on their part because you are still able to add them to the LEGO Shop cart if you have the direct links. Lucky for you, we have them readily available and you can continue to purchase them.

Sheriff’s Safe (910016) – $49.99
Kakapo (910017) – $79.99
Pursuit of Flight (910028) – $54.99

In addition, Round 2 crowdfunding is listed as August 15 but we already know that it was pushed to September because of the extended rounds. Round 3 looks to be at the correct pace for a November 1 crowdfunding according to the new structure image in the link post.

LEGO Super Mario Coins Found in LEGO Stores

The past few days, social media has been lit up with some new LEGO Super Mario coins that people have been getting at LEGO Stores. The coins feature Mario in either a gold or silver finish. The distribution of it is unknown as various stores around the world have done different things to give them away. I’ve been asked many times about it and I honestly don’t know what the correct answer is except asking your store about it.

There’s been an aggregation of various ways people have gotten their coins on the LAN which consists of the following.

North America

• A store in Canada gave them out with any purchase made.
• A New Jersey store had children interact with a themed scanner device. The device would display a result of “gold” or “silver” coin, and the child would receive that coin. A small scavenger hunt had to be attempted beforehand.
• An Ohio store has the scanner, but no scavenger hunt.
• A different Ohio store has the scavenger hunt, but no scanner.
* A store in Utah gave them out only to people who purchased Adventures with Luigi Starter Course.
• A store in Canada gave them out with any purchase made.

UK

• In England, distribution began August 4th at Leicester Square and Southampton stores. No known requirements.
• The Edinburgh store gave them away to people who took photos of 5 Mario figures hidden around the store.

As you can see, there are numerous ways the coins could be obtained … Continue

LEGO Celebrates 89th Birthday

Today, LEGO celebrates its 89th birthday. On this day way back in 1932, Ole Kirk Christiansen began making his iconic wooden toys. It wasn’t until 1958 when the first brick was patented by his son and the rest is history. If you haven’t seen The LEGO Story below, it’s a great animated video showing LEGO’s history.

I don’t think there’s anything special planned for today but we can surely expect something big for next year when LEGO celebrates nine decades of play. One thing is the 90th anniversary fan vote in which LEGO will be choosing a classic theme to make a set for.
