LEGO Ideas Trabant 601 Achieves 10,000 Supporters

0

The Trabant 601 by pedankopet is the latest project to achieve 10,000 supporters on LEGO Ideas. I’m not too familiar with the car but it was stated that the Trabant is one of the more iconic cares of the socialist era of Europe. It features a two-door sedan with opening doors, hood, and trunk. You can also access the interior by removing the roof.

It now joins The Mountain Windmill, Community – Greendale Community College, LEGO HeroQuest, Brickwest Studios, House from Up, and Animal Crossing New Horizons: Nook’s Cranny as the projects to reach the Second 2020 Review Stage.

LEGO Hot Rod (40409) Official Images

0

There are now official images of the LEGO Hot Rod (40409) which will be available starting tomorrow with purchases of $85 or more, while supplies last. The 142 piece set references some older sets including the Model Team Blue Fury (5541) from 1995 and LEGO Creator Hot Rod (10151) from 2004. If my guess is right, it promotion should go live on LEGO [email protected] around midnight EST/9pm PST and will run until June 21. This set will sell out fairly fast unless LEGO made a lot of them.

LEGO Brand Stores Reopening Update

0

A few weeks ago, we gave an update on which LEGO Brand Stores will be reopening and we have another one. If you haven’t been out that much recently, you’ll be glad to know that there are now more stores doing curbside pickup. The list of stores that are fully open has also been expanded as well. I expect this list to change soon since a lot of states have started to ease restrictions. If you’re weary of going out, LEGO [email protected] is still there for your shopping needs.

Hi AFOL Community,

Please see the updated list of store locations that are now providing curbside services and stores that are now open to instore traffic. Please check your local store page for current business hours or call the store before you visit. As you can imagine things are changing by the minute and this list could change. We look forward to greeting you back to our stores. Thank you for your patience and support!

0

LEGO has announced that you will be able to buy certain LEGO Powered Up components that were found in various Technic sets separately starting on June 1. This allows builders to further enhance their builds without having to invest in a whole set just to get the parts.

A message from Gaute Munch, Director Product Technology (Product owner of Powered UP)

For the past two years we have been in dialog with Ambassadors here on the LAN about Powered Up. The feedback that you have shared has been greatly appreciated. It has been insightful but also pleasure to work and brainstorm with different AFOLs around the world on Powered Up. If you are a member of a Recognized Community, thank you.
