LEGO Exclusives Confirmed to be Retiring Soon

The UK LEGO Shop has updated their Retiring Soon list and it looks like there’s a lot of larger exclusive sets that have been added. This confirms some of the list that was put out last month showing all of the sets that could be retiring at the end of the year.

Keep in mind that LEGO has extended the promotion for the LEGO Ideas Sailboat Adventure (40487) so now is a great time to pick up some of these sets if you’ve been holding off on it now that we know for sure they will be retiring soon.

LEGO Tweet Suggests New LEGO Stranger Things Set

LEGO has possibly dropped another hint that we could be seeing a new LEGO Stranger Things set. A few days ago, we got a look at the Stranger Things 4 trailer and LEGO did a LEGO-ized still shot of one of the scenes. I took it as just LEGO getting in on the hype for the new season but a fan on Twitter asked if there would be any new sets and LEGO responded with: “Keep an eye out for more information!”

I haven’t heard anything new for LEGO Stranger Things but this tweet suggests that we may be getting something in the near future. We’re still missing a lot from the theme that we didn’t get from The Upside Down (75810) like Bob or the Mind Flayer. We did get Barb as a minifigure but it was exclusive to SDCC 2019. Let’s do what LEGO says and keep an eye out for more details as they come.

LEGO Stranger Things 4 Teaser

LEGO is getting hyped up for Stranger Things 4 as they have recreated a scene from the trailer that dropped yesterday. The trailer itself was pretty confusing as it shows some kids inside some sort of institute playing with puzzles. There’s one short scene that shows a child stacking some blocks which LEGO has recreated showing a minifigure stacking some bricks. I’m not sure if LEGO is teasing some more LEGO Stranger Things sets or just getting in on the hype. I’m guessing the latter.

Currently there’s only one set based on the show which is The Upside Down (75810). There was also a Barb minifigure that was exclusive to SDCC 2019. Are you excited that the show is finally coming back soon after a short delay and seeing the kids grown up?

LEGO Sets Not Retiring in 2020

I’ve recently talked about some LEGO sets that are set to be retiring at the end of the year but I’ve also been asked if certain sets will be staying or not. I have some new information about a couple of sets that you don’t have to worry about it going away after 2020. I’ve been told from my source that the LEGO Stranger Things The Upside Down (75810) and The Disney Castle (71040) will not be retired and will be available for the foreseeable future.

Currently The Upside Down is still in stock on LEGO [email protected] but the Disney Castle has been on backorder status for a while now. Fortunately, LEGO is accepting backorders and it’ll be shipped in 60 days. You can also use the stock check to see if your nearest LEGO Brand Store has it on the shelves.

LEGO Stranger Things SDCC 2019 Barb Minifigure Review

LEGO Stranger Things SDCC 2019 Barb

Today is the second day of San Diego Comic Con 2019 and LEGO’s minifigure giveaway is for the LEGO Stranger Things Barb. The way the giveaway was done was the same as yesterday for the Advanced Suit Spider-Man except for a couple of things. First is that the time changed from 9:30am start time to 8:30am so I’m going to assume it’ll be like that tomorrow as well for the Zebra Batman. Also they added another iPad to make the line go a lot faster and I was out of the line by 9:00.

As for the packaging, it’s the same clamshell style as before. The card features the LEGO Stranger Things logo along with the SDCC 50 years on the bottom left. The back side has an advertisement for The Upside Down (75810).

LEGO Stranger Things SDCC 2019 Barb

As you can see above, my card has scribbles all over it. That is because the LEGO designer of The Upside Down, Justin Ramsden, was in town and he had a signing event at the LEGO booth so I headed there to get my signed along with many other fans. My inscription shows, “To The Brick Fan”, along with a speech bubble that says “Help”. All of it including the signature is written upside down.

As for the Barb minifigure itself, she is wearing the pink plaid ruffle shirt that is knotted on the top. The legs are just her blue jeans with some printing of the button and pockets. She has a double-sided head showing her with glasses and having … Continue
