2020 has arrived and the floodgates of LEGO have opened with 153 new sets available today. Fans of Star Wars, Technic, Ninjago, City, Architecture, Creator 3-in-1 and even the new Trolls product line have a lot to choose from. The new modular Bookstore is available today as is a new white baseplate. Nearly every LEGO theme has some new sets–it can be a lot to process!– so we have your complete guide right here detailing each and every new set and item.
Some regions have seen these sets on shelves already, but now they are all available online. There are a few sets that really stand out to us, and you can see the complete list of all 153 sets and items after the jump.
We don’t see many creations from real LEGO designers. I mean…yes we do, but they end up being featured in The Brothers Brick news sections when they launch as official sets. Since LEGO designers are so busy designing actual sets, it is rare to see what they build for fun. Former LEGO Designer Tiago Catarino tells us that this is “one of the first MOCs (My Own Creation) I did while working for LEGO in Denmark, and one of the few that ever got to see the light of day, since 99% of the building I did there was, after all, confidential.” There we have it, the 1% he did for fun.
So what does Tiago do when not having fun with LEGO popcorn and gets locked down to conduct some serious business? Well, perhaps you might recognize this one or this other one. Serious business, indeed!
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 brand new LEGO Hidden Side augmented reality product line is available starting today, as well as more than 50 new sets from Architecture, Harry Potter, City, Friends, Jurassic World, Technic and more. LEGO fans in the U.S. have had to wait patiently for this new wave of sets which has been available in Europe for a few months now.
LEGO’s Summer 2019 wave of sets is slowly taking shape with new Ninjago sets and the City theme going to space. In addition, we are also getting our first look at the LEGO Creator sets on their way. This wave features a new fairground ride, townhouse and pet shop building, a helicopter and a cabin.
The sets were revealed by Belgian retailer Toy Champ, and though we do not know their release date, we can provide approximate prices by converting from Euro to USD.
You’ll never know when the next wave of creativity will hit your mind. Our good old friend, colleague, and founder of Brickset.com, Huw Millington gave rein to his imagination as he was reviewing the latest LEGO Creator polybag, 30545 Fish Free Builds. Along with an exotic fish shoal Huw even came up with a couple of fancy birds. This grumpy birdie, which has something in common with Zazu from The Lion King, has instantly captured the hearts of the Brothers Brick team.
Now, we suggest our readers to join the fun and build your own version of Huw’s bird! Here is a short building guide for you to start with, but go ahead and build it the way you like it! Put it on a branch of a tropical tree, or make it sing with its beak wide open. And don’t forget to share your creations with us!
If you haven’t blown your holiday LEGO budget on the Black Friday deals from the LEGO shop (which go through Cyber Monday tomorrow), Amazon.com is spinning up its “Cyber Monday Week” sales, with a number of great deals on LEGO sets.
Live from the LEGO Summer 2018 launch event, we’re bringing you all the new product reveals in the LEGO Creator line, scheduled for release later this year. This year we get to see a huge Creator Rollercoaster, more fairground fun and a cheeky return of Pirates!
Roller coasters are the craze of the season. While we are holding breath until the release of the new rumoured giant roller coaster Creator exclusive set, pictures of the one of the highlights of the Summer wave of Creator sets are already here. The new 31084 Pirate Rollercoaster is a very nice-looking addition to the Creator Fair sub-theme and it seems to have just the right vibes to be well-received by Pirate fans.
LEGO will celebrate the 60th anniversary of the plastic brick in 2018, having come a long way from its humble beginnings in 1958. The iconic interlocking bricks have led LEGO to becoming the largest toy company in the world, and LEGO seems to be reaching back to its roots with a new line of classic Creator-style sets emblazoned with the words building bigger thinking. Each set focuses on a different aspect of imagination and features a special tile printed with the 60th Anniversary logo.
Official images of a selection of early 2018 LEGO sets have been released, including LEGO DC Comics Super Heroes, Creator, City and Technic sets due for release. The details include the set number and part count or pricing in some cases, but not all the information has been released as yet. There are a couple of interesting sets in particular with 31081 Modular Skate House within the Creator theme, and 42074 Racing Yacht from the Technic line-up.
Images for three sets from LEGO DC Comics Superheroes have been released.
