0

One of my favorite themes is LEGO Marvel Super Heroes and there were some new summer 2020 sets displayed at the 2020 Nuremberg Toy Fair but we can only talk about some of them. The big one is the Iron Man Bust (76165) which is a 18+ set and will retail for €59.99. The release date on it is early May. LEGO has been releasing characters as LEGO busts and I’m excited to see one of the most iconic Marvel characters as one as well.

The other Marvel set that was reported on was Spider-Man vs. Venom (76151) which releases in February. Although more Super Heroes sets were on display, the details are still under embargo.

THE LEGO GROUP AND AUTOMOBILI LAMBORGHINI ANNOUNCE NEW PARTNERSHIP

First ever LEGO® Technic™ Lamborghini set will launch globally in summer 2020.

29th January 2020, Billund: The LEGO Group is delighted to announce a partnership between Italian super sports cars car manufacturer, Automobili Lamborghini and LEGO® Technic™, the building system that allows older kids and adults to create more advanced, complex models.

The new 1:8 scale set will launch in summer 2020 and will be the third model in the LEGO Technic Ultimate series, following on from its hugely popular predecessors, the Porsche 911 GT3 RS in 2016 and Bugatti Chiron in 2018.

When you build with LEGO Technic, you learn how to Build for Real.

For Niels Henrik Horsted, LEGO Technic Marketing Director, partnering with a company like Automobili Lamborghini is an ideal choice: “Following the success of the former Ultimate models, both the Porsche and the Bugatti, it was crucial for us to find a new partner with an iconic vehicle, an unmistakable design DNA and ground breaking use of technology.”

Katia Bassi, Automobili Lamborghini Chief Marketing and Communication Officer, says, “The LEGO Group has amazed entire generations with beautifully simple or extremely complex constructions. In the digital age, where entertainment is often via a screen, our collaboration with the LEGO Group allows enthusiasts to live a real experience, reproducing a Lamborghini super sports car in every detail to create an outstanding model, just like the real car.”

The LEGO Technic Lamborghini model will be available in LEGO Brand Retail Stores and the LEGO Online Store from 1 June 2020 and more widely from 1 August 2020. Further details about the LEGO Technic Lamborghini will be revealed at a later date.
