LEGO Ideas Clockwork Aquarium! Achieves 10,000 Supporters


The Clockwork Aquarium! project by mjsmiley is the latest project to achieve 10,000 supporters on LEGO Ideas. The aquarium features a number of fish along with some plants and sand but the main play feature is the working internal mechanism that makes the fish “swim” about. You can check out how the aquarium works in the video below.

The project now joins Queen: I Want to Break Free, Seinfeld 30th Anniversary, The Legend of Zelda: BotW Stables, Planet Express Delivery Ship, Ratatouille: Open The Doors!, LEGO Typewriter, The Legend of the BIONICLE, The Huascar, Winter Chalet, Toronto Rocket Subway Train, and Home Alone McCallister’s House as the projects to reach the Third 2019 Review Stage.


Top 10 LEGO 2019 Sets


The year is almost coming to an end and I guess this is a good time to list my top 10 LEGO sets for 2019. According to Brickset, there were 785 LEGO products released this year but I’ll only be choosing ten as my favorites. Believe me, there were a lot of good sets that were released so it’s really hard choosing just a tiny fraction of them. Like usual, I’ll be using a number of criteria to rank them.


LEGO Ghostbusters: Afterlife Trailer Released – Sets Rumored for 2020


The trailer for Ghostbusters: Afterlife dropped today and it is a direct sequel to the original Ghostbusters and Ghostbusters II starring Finn Wolfhard, Carrie Coon, Mckenna Grace, and Paul Rudd. What we’re interested here at The Brick Fan is if there are any LEGO sets for Ghostbusters: Afterlife. We’re unsure at this time but rumor has it from Brick Fanatics is that there will be some sets inspired from the film.

As you may know, the Ghostbusters theme isn’t new from LEGO as there has been a number of sets already including the LEGO Ideas Ecto 1 (21108), Ecto 1 & 2 (75828), Firehouse Headquarters (75827), BrickHeadz Peter Venkman & Slimer (41622), and sets for LEGO Dimensions. I wouldn’t be too surprised if there are sets for the new movie.

Ghostbusters: Afterlife releases in theaters on July 10, 2020.

LEGO Seasonal Creator Mini Gingerbread House (40337) Review


LEGO Seasonal Creator Mini Gingerbread House (40337)

From now until December 24 with purchases of $99 or more, you can get the new LEGO Seasonal Creator Mini Gingerbread House (40337). It consists of 499 pieces which is quite a bit for a gift with purchase set. Most people were waiting to get it along with the larger Gingerbread House (10267) but it is temporarily out of stock on [email protected] The contents of the smaller counterpart include five numbered bags from 1-3, two instruction booklets, and a small sticker sheet.


LEGO Collectible Minifigures Price Increase Confirmed on Brickseek


A few months ago, we first reported that the price of the LEGO Collectible Minifigures will be increasing in 2020 and it looks like that has been confirmed by Brickseek. The LEGO DC Comics Collectible Minifigures (71026) are now out at Toys R Us in Canada as well as to a few RLFM sites and we can see the UPC number for the minifigures as 673419319362. Crosschecking that on Brickseek, it shows that the price has jumped to $4.97 which is Walmart pricing but it pretty much confirms that they will be $4.99 per pack.

Again, I’m not sure why the price has increased but note that for this wave, each minifigure will have a jumper plate along a trans-clear piece for action poses. I doubt those two additional pieces are the reason for the dollar increase but there could be other behind the scenes things that also factored into it.
