LEGO Wizarding World Harry Potter Sets Rumored for 2019

0

The LEGO Wizarding World Harry Potter theme was a really popular one last year and it looks like we may not see the end of it anytime soon. Brick Fanatics has gotten information that we could see another wave coming this summer. The wave would make up of at least five sets and they would be based on the following:

-Expecto Patronum
-Triwizard Challenge/Tournament
-Hagrid’s Hut
-Knight Bus
-Hogwarts Watch Tower

Of course, everything is a rumor until LEGO announces it or images of the sets show up early at a retailer.

The LEGO Movie 2 Trading Cards (5005775) and Awesome Collector Album (5005777) Review

The LEGO Movie 2 Trading Cards (5005775) and Awesome Collector Album (5005777)

From now until February 24, there’s a promotion going on at LEGO [email protected] for some The LEGO Movie 2 Trading Cards (5007557). With a purchase of $15, you can get one pack or with a purchase of 40, you can get three packs. Also if you’re a VIP member, you can also get the Awesome Collector Album (5005777) with a purchase of $15, limit one per VIP. I made a purchase when the promotional period started so let’s take a look at what I got.

The Awesome Collector Album comes in a sealable bag so you can safely store it away if you’re not looking at it. The front cover of the album shows Rex, Emmet, Lucy, and Sweet Mayhem and the back shows the 20 sets that have been released so far for TLM2.

Inside the Album, we get the exclusive Batman #1 red foil card that is included with every album. It is slotted inside the page and there’s a space below it showing which character it is. There are 36 cards to collect and each one has their own spot in the album. I will say that the openings for the cards are a bit small so you’ll have to bend the card slightly to slide it in.

Each pack of cards include four random ones to collect and one of those cards are the gold foil version. As you can see from my opening, I have two gold Rex cards and the other one is of Queen Watevra Wa’Nabi.

Overall, The LEGO Movie 2 Trading Cards (5005775) and Awesome Collector Album (5005777) promotion is a pretty neat one and as a trading card collector and completionist, I’m interested in the getting all the cards. As far as trying to get all the gold variants, I won’t try for that as it’ll be vary expensive to do so.

Unless you’re making a lot of purchases, I have a feeling that a majority of fans won’t be able to complete the set. In a perfect world, you’ll need 12 packs to complete the set of 36 cards because of the one gold foil per pack. That takes in the fact that you get no duplicates and that won’t happen so it’ll be more packs than that unless you’re trading or buying some outside of making purchases to get the packs.

Remember, there are a couple of “official” trading card swap days at LEGO Stores on February 3 & 18 but that doesn’t mean that you can’t bring them any other day and see if you can find people to trade with.

The LEGO Movie 2: The Second Part The Rexcelsior! (70839)

One of summer 2019 The LEGO Movie 2: The Second Part sets has been revealed during the London Toy Fair with The Rexcelsior! (70839). The set has 1,820 pieces and retail for £139.99 and it includes minifigures of Emmet and Rex Dangervest as well as some microfigures of them and the baby raptors. One of the play features with The Rexcelsior is the 6-missile rapid blast function. We first saw the set The LEGO Movie 2: The Awesomest, Most Amazing, Most Epic Movie Guide and there was no doubt that we would be seeing this set coming in the summer.

In a global exclusive reveal at this year’s London Toy Fair, The LEGO Group has shown off an upcoming addition to its range of exciting products from The LEGO® MOVIE 2: THE SECOND PART™ (in UK cinemas February 8th) – in the form of new hero Rex Dangervest’s ship, The Rexcelsior.

The 1,820 piece model, released in summer 2019, gives builders of all ages the chance to take control of all-action hero Dangervest’s vessel, shaped like a fist and featuring a rapid-fire, 6-missile spring-loaded shooter with shooting function and a trigger in the back, allowing them to role-play space missions with Rex, Emmet and Rex’s raptor crew.

Measuring over 7” (19cm) high, 15” (40cm) long and 8” (21cm) wide, The Rexcelsior features a detailed microscale interior, as well as Stubble Trouble Emmet and Rex Dangervest Minifigures, Emmet and Rex LEGO Microfigures, five micro raptor toy dinosaur figures and five micro build models including Emmet’s house and a dropship.

Builders aged 10+ can make their play experience ‘awesomer together’ by building with a friend – whether spotting the details of the micro-scale interior (featuring its own skate park, cargo bay and command bridge) or by joining the raptors in the cockpit as they set off on more space adventures.

The set is part of a wider range of products from The LEGO® MOVIE 2: THE SECOND PART™ that will bring to life a range of exciting LEGO sets and play experiences for kids and parents, such as Emmet’s Thricycle and Rex’s Rex-treme Offroader. Builders can break and rebuild their structures for extra fun, and to even create their own version of The Rexcelsior!

The Rexcelsior has been revealed for the first time at London Toy Fair in a global exclusive and will officially launch in summer 2019 for a RRP of £139.99.
