LEGO x adidas ZX 8000 Color Pack Revealed

Back in September of last year, LEGO did a collaboration with adidas to release the limited edition ZX 8000 shoe which not many people were able to get a hold of. Some time later this year, LEGO and adidas will release a new Color Pack for the ZX 8000s which will include a number of different colors such as Gray, Yellow, Green, Blue, Red, and Black. The style will be similar to before but the main colors will be more dominant. The price will be at $130 and it will be available at adidas.com. Will you be picking these ZX 8000s up now that they don’t have wild colors all over it like with the limited edition one?

LEGO Amelia Earhart Tribute (40450) Set Coming in 2021

Brickset has updated their database for new LEGO sets and there is one interesting one called the Amelia Earhart Tribute (40450). It appears to be some sort of gift with purchase item coming some time in 2021. Little is known about this set but it will the second tribute type set that LEGO will release. The first one was the Charles Dickens Tribute (40410) late last year. It will most likely be a set depicting her being the first woman to fly solo nonstop across the Atlantic. If you remember, there was a project on LEGO Ideas called I am Amelia Earhart that hit 10,000 supporters in 2018 but I doubt it has any relation to it.

LEGO 2020 Employee Gift – Celebrating 40 Years of Hands-On Learning (4002020) Revealed

LEGO Celebrating 40 Years of Hands-On Learning (4002020)

Each year LEGO gives their employees a limited edition set as a Christmas gift and for 2020, LEGO celebrates the 40th anniversary of the LEGO Education theme with this set. As a LEGO Ambassador, we were also given this gift as a present as well. There’s no official set name but the included pamphlet titles it Celebrating 40 Years of Hands-On Learning (4002020) so that’s what we’re calling it.

The back of the box talks about the LEGO gearwheel which also celebrates its 50th year since it was introduced and it is mainly featured in this set.

LEGO Celebrating 40 Years of Hands-On Learning (4002020)-2

It’s been 40 years since LEGO Education was established and 50 years since the introduction of the first universal LEGO gearwheel. We mark this double anniversary with this special LEGO Education-inspired model, full of festive magic. Enjoy.

The 919 piece model features a couple of elves working in their workshop getting some presents ready. When you turn the wheel on the right side, pretty much everything goes into motion including the Christmas tree spinning, the elves moving, and the conveyor belt rotates to reveal presents on the line.

As a collector, I usually keep these sets sealed but there are plenty of reviews of it online that you can check out. The set has been sold online on the secondary market for a while now but we held off on sharing it so that LEGO employees can be surprised for their gift. Thank you to the LEGO Engagement Team for their work and generosity this year!

Decorate Your Office With a Periodic Table of LEGO Colors

A few of you have messaged in about a neat item from We Love What You Build called the Periodic Table of the LEGO Colors. Featuring 70 different colors in 12 different pieces, the table also tells you the official LEGO names of the colors as well as the BrickLink names and ID. In addition, it also tells you when each particular color was used. It sells for $39.99 and its measurements are 15.7 x 11.8 x 0.6 in / 40 x 30 x 1.5 cm.

Could LEGO Collectible Minifigures May 2021 Wave be Based on Space Jam 2?

If you saw yesterday, the new January-May 2021 LEGO Catalog was released and one of the pages showed the Series 21 LEGO Collectible Minifigures. On the bottom right corner it also shows a new series will be out in May.

Way back in August, we reported that there was a rumor that there could be a LEGO Looney Tunes Collectible Minifigures coming out next year. I’m not sure where but I’ve recently heard somewhere that this wave could be based on Space Jam: A New Legacy which is the new movie that features LeBron James and other newer NBA and WNBA stars. It also includes some Looney Tunes characters including Bugs Bunny, Daffy Duck, Tweety, Pepe Le Pew, Marvin the Martian, Lola Bunny, Porky Pig, Sylvester, Foghorn Leghorn, and Yosemite Sam. If LEGO continues the 12 minifigures per wave, that’s already 10 of them. We can probably throw in Elmer Fudd and the Tasmanian Devil as the last two since they were in the first Space Jam.

Of course, this is purely a rumor and we really don’t know what LEGO has in store for this wave coming out in May. Note that Space Jam 2 comes out in July and marketing for the movie will have probably started by then.
