The Secret Life of LEGO Bricks Book Announced

A couple of weeks ago, LEGO on the LEGO Ideas platform did a fan vote for an upcoming book geared towards AFOLs and the winning title has been announced as The Secret Life of LEGO Bricks. You will be able to pre-order it at Unbound and if you do, your name will be printed on the back of the book. There will also be rewards as part of the pre-orders including a print of the LEGO Wooden Duck with more to be revealed later on.

The Secret Life of LEGO Bricks won’t be released until 2022 but the pre-orders will be accepted through early 2021. The book will feature a variety of LEGO elements, from monorail tracks and wheels to smart bricks, the Mask of Life from BIONICLE, and more. It will be written by Daniel Konstanski, US editor of Blocks Magazine, who I’ve met before a few times at Philly Brick Fest.

LEGO Star Wars Bespin Duel (75294) Revealed – Download Building Instructions

LEGO has inadvertently revealed a new LEGO Star Wars exclusive set with the Bespin Duel (75294). This set has been circulating on social media for the past week or so. This set features the iconic scene between Luke Skywalker and Darth Vader in The Empire Strikes Back. There’s no word on how it will be distributed as it was rumored to be the Star Wars Celebration 2020 exclusive. There are new rumors of it being available at LEGO Brand Stores in September but we’ll see if that happens or if it’ll go to Target like with the Darth Vader Bust from last year’s Celebration. If you are building it yourself, note there are new parts that are in the set including new minifigure parts. You can now download the building instructions for it before LEGO decides to take it down.
