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

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.

LEGO VIP Add On Packs First Look

LEGO has revealed images of some new VIP Add On Packs on their building instructions page. There are four packs and they look to be just a slew of accessories for certain themes. It is unsure how or when they will be available but I’m assuming they’ll be in the Rewards Center for a certain amount of VIP points.

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.

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.

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.
