LEGO Transformers Optimus Prime (10302) Designer Video

LEGO has just released the designer video for the new LEGO Transformers Optimus Prime (10302). Senior designer Joseph Kyde talks about some of the details that went into the set. Are we not going to talk about the Ultra Magnus on the shelf in the background along with various other Prime designs? Optimus Prime is still available on the LEGO Shop and it qualifies for the Forest Hideout gift with purchase set.


LEGO Con 2022 Recap

LEGO Con 2022 completed yesterday with a surprisingly positive response from viewers and there was a lot packed in the two hours of the event. There were more LEGO reveals compared to last year and there were also some teasers that you may have missed in between. If you tuned in live for LEGO Con, LEGO is during a survey and taking feedback about the show. You have until June 27 to fill it out.


The not so obvious teaser was during the LEGO Harry Potter segment where LEGO Design Master Marcos Bessa talks to Evanna Lynch about some of the HP sets with the huge Hogwarts Express in the background. There’s been rumors of a large scale Hogwarts Express (76405) coming in the fall that has a reported 5,129 pieces and will retail for €499.99.

The more subtle teaser was during the LEGO Star Wars reveals when LEGO Designers Michael Lee Stockwell and Madison O’Neil both came out wearing shirts with the Razor Crest outline. It has also been rumored that there will be a UCS Razor Crest (75331) that will retail for around $529.99. This rumor is a little more iffy than the Hogwarts Express.

Lastly, we got a first look at potentially one of the next LEGO Minecraft minifigures. There is a fan vote that will be starting soon to choose between the Crystal Knight, Classic Knight, or Prismarine Knight. They said it will be on their Twitter page but we don’t see anything yet.

LEGO Creator Expert Rebranded to LEGO Icons

For a few years now the LEGO Creator Expert theme has been used for sets aimed at older builders and more recently, the 18+ sets that had no particular theme. LEGO has announced that these sets will be now be under the LEGO Icons theme starting on June 1 and the name and logo will be on packaging on January 1, 2023. This umbrella theme will now be used for all of the adult focused LEGO sets to help adults consumers find sets that cater to their interests. This will not affect sets that are not already part of another theme such as Architecture, Ideas, and Technic.

From June 1st, 2022, we will be uniting many of our adult focused LEGO® sets under the name LEGO® Icons to help our adult consumers easily to find new, immersive builds or models that link to their interests and passions, particularly when shopping or browsing online. The name LEGO Icons will span all of our sets designed for older builders that are not already part of an existing LEGO theme such as LEGO® Technic, LEGO® Ideas or LEGO® Architecture.
