The Scrolls of Forbidden Spinjitzu have been kept a secret for a thousand years. With good reason. The evil Serpentine sorceress, Aspheera, was banished along with the Scrolls – but now she is back, hungry for revenge, and ready to get her fangs on the Scrolls once more and reclaim her powers. The ninja’s powers, friendships, beliefs and loyalties will be put to the test like never before.

LEGO Launching Lead User Lab in August


LEGO will be launching a new program this August called the Lead User Lab which will bring ideas from LEGO fans and potentially bringing them to life. If you have a brilliant idea but don’t know how to execute it, this program may be the solution. Some of these ideas could include complementary add-ons to the LEGO building system, digital experiences, and also marketplaces. Learn more about the Lead User Lab below.

The Lead User Lab will aim to capture new-to-the-company ideas, evaluate their potential and bring them to life in new ways.

Planned to start in August, the Lead User Lab pilot project sets out to build a unique innovation model for the LEGO Group, capturing, evaluating and nurturing ideas from the brilliant and creative minds of LEGO fans and Lead Users among adult LEGO users.

Co-creating these future innovations will set the ground for developing investigate new opportunity areas which might include complementary add-ons to the LEGO building system, digital experiences and even marketplaces, imagined by the Lead Users, and brought to scale by the LEGO Group.

Kari Vinther Nielsen, Head of Lead User Lab at the LEGO Group said:
“Innovation is often something you don’t know you need. Lead Users often create this future – they react to trends and come up with ingenious solutions to problems we perhaps didn’t even know we had! We want to capture this brilliance and ingenuity of Lead Users in a systematic way, explore the high potential ideas and co-create to expand the LEGO idea in ways we haven’t yet imagined.”

The Lead User Lab will focus on breakthrough ideas on a wide spectrum of future application ranging from new experiences, services, channels and audiences, while keeping the Lead User front and center.

What’s a Lead User?

Lead Users are at the starting edge of future market and consumer trends – they experience latent needs that often haven’t been crystalized yet and tailor innovative solutions that are well ahead of the market.

The LEGO Group currently benefits from AFOLs’ (Adult Fans of LEGO) amazing talents in many ways. Whether as loyal consumers of LEGO products and experiences, as highly creative producers of content, experiences and many other LEGO knowledge areas, or as amazing brand advocates – and some of them can turn out to be the future Lead Users.

Over a third of AFOLs self-report that they have developed a LEGO related innovation – with Lead User Lab, we will explore a unique opportunity to get closer to the breakthrough ideas pipeline, capture the best and turn them into reality together with Lead Users.

How will it work?

The Lead User Lab will take in ideas on two simultaneous fronts. A dedicated innovation portal will be launched, where all potential Lead User candidates can submit their radical innovation ideas and keep track of the intake and evaluation process done by the LEGO Group.

Simultaneously, the Lead User Lab team will also approach various existing Lead Users who are extremely motivated in finding ingenious solutions to a LEGO related need, and who have developed a prototype, solution, or have an established business, and are eager to co-create on taking their idea to the next level.

If you already have a breakthrough idea, we encourage you to keep an eye out for the Lead User Lab innovation portal launch. And if you can’t wait, please send us a note to [email protected] Please expect a delay in getting an answer. The LUL team will not be onboard until August

The lead user Lab is planned as a two-year pilot and the LEGO group will ongoingly evaluate the potential of scaling this initiative.

Next LEGO Star Wars UCS Set Reported to be $699


It’s never too early to speculate about the fall 2019 LEGO Star Wars UCS set and it looks like rumors have already started over on Reddit. A user was at their local LEGO store and an employee mentioned they already have a placeholder for the next UCS set in the system and it will be priced at $699. The thread has many people suggesting it could be a new Star Destroyer as there aren’t that many vehicles in the Star Wars Universe that could command a high price point. The last UCS version of the ship was the 10221 version from 2011 and the latest retail release of the ship was the First Order Star Destroyer (75190) from 2017.

I can not say that the next UCS set will be a Star Destroyer as I haven’t heard any rumors about it or maybe I’m not looking hard enough or care to. Again, everything above is considered a rumor until LEGO announces it. We do know that LEGO does usually release a Star Wars UCS/Master Builder Series set around September/October so we’ll just have to wait until then to hear more about what’s coming up when the teasers start showing up on social media.
