For those who are still looking for the LEGO Ideas Voltron (21311), Barnes & Noble still has it available for purchase on their site for retail price. The set was retired at the end of 2019 and has popped up here and there at non-secondary market prices. Currently, the set is going for over $200 on eBay so get it while you can.
The LEGO Monkie Kid sets have been available for a week now and there is a new polybag that has recently surfaced online called Monkie Kid’s Delivery Bike (30341). It was available in Shanghai as a gift-with-purchase when the sets first launched and I’m going to assume it will be available here too in the near future. The July 2020 Store Calendar doesn’t show any promotion for it but that doesn’t mean that LEGO can’t run it unannounced. I wouldn’t be surprised if it gets pushed back as far as August.
The House from Up by bramant1 is the latest project to achieve 10,000 supporters on LEGO Ideas. It features Carl and Ellie’s colorful house and it also includes the balloons. The project also proposes minifigures of Carl and Russell along with a brick-built Dug.

Over on the LAN, LEGO Chief Marketing Officer Julia Goldin has shared a message with the LEGO community. She has taken time to reflect on the current global situation and shares how the AFOL community is important to her and to LEGO in general, especially the events that are supposed to be going on around the world. It’s nice to see higher ups take time to make candid videos and sharing their thoughts.
