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 Speed Champions Mopar Dodge//SRT Top Fuel Dragster and 1970 Dodge Challenger T/A (76904) Found at Target

It looks like there’s some new LEGO Speed Champions sets that have hit Target a bit early as some fans have found a new one called the Mopar Dodge//SRT Top Fuel Dragster and 1970 Dodge Challenger T/A (76904) on store shelves. In fact, I believe multiple people have found it at different locations. Brickfinder reports that one person was able to purchase it while another on Reddit was denied purchase. The set has 627 pieces and retails for $49.99. The release date is up in the air as one store said it was street dates for August 1 while some day that the release date is in June. The set also is in the running for the longest set name ever.
