Today, LEGO took the wraps off the upcoming sets for the Trolls: World Tour movie, revealing seven tie-in sets. The film, starring Anna Kendrick and Justine Timberlake, is slated to arrive April 17, 2020, but the LEGO sets will come much sooner with a release date of January (which likely means they will actually drop Dec. 26, like most of the other January-wave sets). The sets feature a solid dose of new elements to create all the zany Trolls, along with other new introductions like musical notes and new hot air balloon panels. We got a brief look at the LEGO Trolls minifigures last month, but now we can see the full sets. The line appears to include one 4+ (formerly known as Juniors) set, with the rest being traditional sets. LEGO provided some set images to Yahoo Entertainment (because apparently this is still 2005), while also revealing lifestyle images of each set on Instagram.
Today we’re getting a look at the upcoming LEGO Ninjago 2020 lineup, thanks to retailer Meinspielzeug. These are slated to be available in the starting December 26th, and prices are listed in Euros. The new season features new speeder vehicles, a couple of mechs, a marketplace and a temple. Plus there’s a new form of Arcade Pod featuring minifigures Kai, Lloyd and Jay with a load of additional weaponry encased in a pod-like structure that resembles an old-school arcade cabinet.
LEGO’s early 2020 wave of sets is slowly taking shape with new Technic sets and the City theme focusing on the police again. In addition, we are also getting our first look at the LEGO Creator sets on their way. This wave features a toy shop, dragon, some cool vehicles and a monster burger truck.
The sets were revealed by retailer Mein Spielzeug, and though we do not know their exact release date, we assume they will be released around January.
The first of LEGO Technic 2020 sets, 42109 App-Controlled Top Gear Rally Car, was revealed yesterday. Today, we are having the first look at more LEGO Technic 2020 sets, which were just published online by some retailers. The new products look as fresh as ever, while the lineup includes a broad range of types of vehicles. Each of the sets will be officially available starting Dec. 26, 2019, however, we don’t have full USD prices yet.
Today we’re getting our first look at the City 2020 lineup, starting with eight new sets from the emergency services divisions of Police and Fire, thanks to variousretailers. With six new Police sets and two Fire sets, LEGO City will certainly be active next year. The lineup even includes real flying helicopters thanks to a ripcord launcher system similar to those used on other themes like Ninjago. Each of the sets will be officially available starting Dec. 26, 2019, and while we don’t have full USD prices yet, we can confirm approximate euro prices.
Today at the LA Auto Show, LEGO revealed a brand new Technic set co-designed with the BBC’s Top Gear team, 42109 App-Controlled Top Gear Rally Car. The set was teased back in September when the partnership between LEGO and BBC’s Top Gear motoring show was first announced. The model depicts a GT Rally car that can be remote controlled through the LEGO Technic CONTROL+ app which will enable driving challenges and other achievements (similar to the App-Controlled Batmobile we reviewed last year).
42109 App-Controlled Top Gear Rally Car comes with 463 pieces including one large motor, one XL motor and a Bluetooth-controlled smart hub. The set will be available starting December 26 and will retail for US $129.00 | UK £124,99.

Late last month, the latest Speed Champions LEGO set in collaboration with Lamborghini was revealed at the Super Trofeo World Final on stage in Jerez, Spain. The images of 76899 Lamborghini Huracán Super Trofeo EVO & Urus ST-X shared at that time were photos from the stage and several media shots. Now, we’re getting a better look at the final box art and studio product images from LEGO.
This set comes with a total of 663 parts for the build of both vehicles and is adorned with stickers to pull off the final accurate detailing of the cars. Like the Jaguar Formula E and I-PACE LEGO set revealed last month, both cars conform to the new 8-stud-wide design language.
Today, LEGO has taken the wraps off the January wave of sets for its augmented reality theme introduced earlier this year, Hidden Side. Each brick-built set pairs with the Hidden Side app to create a game about finding and catching ghosts to save the fictional town of Newbury. The new wave of six sets features more locations around the town such as a fairground, portal, and even a subway station, each with a spooky twist. There’s even an ominously named “Lighthouse of Darkness.” The new sets will be available immediately after Christmas, beginning Dec. 27.
Part counts and US prices are yet to be revealed, but you can check out the rest of the set information below, along with the official press release outlining a study on the effects of physical versus digital play in children.

The model also comes with three new minifigures: Batman, The Joker and Vicki Vale.
In addition to other LEGO Black Friday deals, those who purchase the 1989 Batmobile between November 29th and December 5th will receive an exclusive mini replica of the original model as a free gift-with-purchase while supplies last.

LEGO is celebrating its past in a big way this year. When founder Ole Kirk Christiansen began making toys in 1932, he made them out of wood before shifting to plastic. LEGO manufactured wooden toys until 1960, always with the highest commitment to quality. The LEGO brick may have taken over eventually, but the company’s origin is rooted in wooden toys. Today, LEGO announced they are returning to those roots in a big way — by launching a new product line selling an upscale wooden minifigure: LEGO Originals 853967 Wooden Minifigure.
The giant wooden minifigure will sell for US $119.99 | CAN 154.99 | UK £109.99. in select LEGO stores and online beginning November 3rd for LEGO VIPS with general availability beginning November 8th.
Today LEGO has announced a new licensing partnership with Dreamworks for the upcoming Trolls World Tour film. The film is slated for release April 17, 2020.
