The Terrariums project by Galaxy333 is the latest one to achieve 10,000 supporters on LEGO Ideas. The build has about 2,000 pieces and features three different terrariums that have various sized jars. The project now joins Land Ahoy as the ones to reach the Third 2021 Review Stage.
LEGO has updated the logo for their LEGO Games subtheme and there are rumors that Overwatch may be part of this gaming umbrella. It is reported that LEGO Games will become it’s own theme and will include everything that is related to gaming from various video games to the Bits N’ Bricks podcasts. LEGO could just put various game related sets under the general LEGO Games theme without actually having a dedicated theme for them which is a smart move.
On to the Overwatch rumors, it has been reported that there could be a LEGO Overwatch set 76980 coming in November featuring the Null Sector Titan. If you follow Overwatch lore, the Titan was part of the Omnic Crisis at the Paris attack. The set is rumored to have 901 pieces and priced at 79.99€. We’ve been waiting for more sets from Overwatch but the game has died down a lot since the last wave of sets but hopefully Overwatch 2 can reinvigorate the line in 2022.

LEGO has launched a new iteration to their Rebuild the World campaign which celebrates problem solving. In a newly released film, it shows a Knight trying to cross a bridge but fails to until the town comes together to figure out a way across. Be sure to keep a close eye around the 0:42 mark where you can spot an Easter egg that fans really want in LEGO form.
New LEGO® campaign shows how creative problem solving can reunite and Rebuild the World
Billund, September 20th, 2021 – The LEGO Group has launched a playful new iteration to its global Rebuild the World brand campaign. Now in its third year, the 2021 Rebuild the World campaign celebrates children as the masters of creative problem solving and shows what can be achieved when people work together to overcome differences or challenges.
The main film is centered on the story of a Knight whose attempts to cross a river to see a friendly bear keep failing. Seeing the Knight’s dilemma, a whole town comes together and pools their varied skills, perspectives and talents to find a way to reunite the friends. As the Knight finally conquers the river crossing, the film playfully reveals how the story and the solution to the challenge have been imaginatively conceived by a group of children building, unbuilding and rebuilding through LEGO® play.
The LEGO System in Play has long been the ultimate platform for creative problem solving. Just as the children in this campaign come together to build and test different solutions,
It’s been a while but I’m back with my next installment of movie to LEGO set comparisons and this time it is for Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings. It already has been a few weeks since the movie came out so if you still haven’t seen it yet, there will be some spoilers. I will not be including the Shang-Chi and The Great Protector (30454) polybag as it is just a promo set.
This set is based towards the middle of the movie where Shang-Chi, Katy, and Xialing have been captured by Wenwu and locked in the dungeons and find Trevor Slattery along with Morris. They eventually escape and get to the parking lot and steal Razor Fist’s custom BMW. The set features a yellow car while in the movie, it has more of a blue/purple color. Although the movie does have a motorcycle chase, it did not have Wenwu or Razor Fist giving chase. Lastly, there were no turrets shown either. Shang-Chi and Katy also didn’t get their dragon scale armor until the climax of the movie.
I feel that LEGO was just trying to fit a majority of the main characters into a set and it worked to an extent. I wish Shang-Chi and Katy still had their casual outfits while Wenwu had his white shirt. Obviously, Trevor couldn’t be a minifigure because he was a surprise in the movie and didn’t want to spoil that. Xialing had to be split off for the … Continue

As we know by now, the Bricktober sets are exclusive to Toys R Us and the Asian market is the only place that has them as promotional sets. The sets will be free with purchases of $69 and they feature fairy tales depicted in microscale builds on top of a book cover.
There’s no word if these sets will be outside of the APAC region since they look like really nice sets that many fans would like to have. Note that these are promotional sets and do not fall under the regional exclusives tag which are typical of these kinds of sets.
