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 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.

More LEGO Sets Coming in New Color Schemes

Last week, we reported that a couple of LEGO Creator sets will be coming soon with new color schemes which included the Fiat 500 (77942) and the Mighty Dinosaurs (77941). It looks like there are even more sets that have surfaced that have new colors. First is the Mighty Dinosaurs (77940) which will have another color scheme, this time with the brown. The other set is the LEGO City Fire Station Headquarters (77944) which has some slight changes to the build. Again, we’re not sure why LEGO has opted to make similar sets in new color schemes.
