LEGO 10270 Creator Expert Bookshop Modular

LEGO 10270 Creator Expert Modular Bookshop

Today the LEGOnet (LEGO Internet) is all abuzz with the announcement of the latest Creator Expert Modular set – The Bookshop. With 2504 pieces and 5 minifigures – the price will be $179.00. As you can see from the images, this is actually 2 buildings built together a bookstore on one side and a little 3 story house on the other, side by side. It’s a modular so it will connect and fit in with the other LEGO modulars that have come out already.

LEGO 71026 DC Minifigures

For a while now, there have been rumors for the next LEGO minifigure series. A few days ago, some photos were leaked on a Japanese site showing the box and bag images. There is a group photo as well of all the 16 minifigures in the new DC Series, but no individual shots yet. Since these aren’t officially released LEGO images, I don’t want to share them yet. When they do release more info I’ll update this post with them.

For now all we know is that there are 16 LEGO DC Minifigures. These are superheroes and villains. I’ve got a list of the names below. Some of them are more popular characters, while others I had to look up because I wasn’t as familiar with them as I could be.

At this time I don’t know if this going to be it’s own separate minifigures series or if it will be minifigure series 20. Some sites are saying there will be sealed cases of 30 and others are saying that there will be 60 sealed bags in a case. Either way, as soon as we have more information I’ll let you know the box distribution and more details for each one

It appears that several of the characters have 1×2 jumper plates and a trans clear piece which can be put under their foot to allow for some posing in jumping or flying action shots.

LEGO 75270 Pre-Order

You can pre order the individual minifigures so you know exactly which ones you will get. Just click on the links for each character below to go to the pre-order page.

I do offer a refund policy – we offer a complete refund if you ask before they have shipped to you. Once the minifigures are released, we will open each bag to confirm the contents, transfer the unassembled minifigure to a new ziploc style bag and send them to you. Shipping is $4 for any number of minifigs in the US. International rates start at $11. All orders come with tracking.

LEGO 75270 16 different Minifigures

As always, there will be 16 different minifigures in sealed blind bags.

LEGO 75270 Price

I expect this set to be priced at $4.99 US and will be on sale starting in January 2020. You can pre-order them at this price for now, but as soon as they come out prices may change based on availability and if some minifigures are more rare than others.

LEGO 75270 Review

Right now as of the time of writing this blog post, this set is not yet released. When it is, I’ll buy it and write my thoughts here, as well on each individual Minifigure product page.

If you want to see when I open the set and build it in real time,  follow me on Instagram where I frequently do live feeds and Lego Instagram Stories of new sets. This year my goal is to buy and review every single LEGO set made in 2020.

The cost will most likely be the same as other series, and priced at $4.95. Plus it seems there are at least 5 female characters!

New LEGO sets being released in May 2019

I’ve been slowly learning about new LEGO sets that will be released in May 2019. Some of the information here is official, and has come from the official LEGO Group, while others are leaks and come from unofficial, but mostly reliable sources.

The late spring and early summer months aren’t usually big release times for new LEGO sets. Usually we will see something a bit different being released, and this month is shaping up to be similar to previous years.

Stranger Things LEGO set

There has been some chatter on a few of the websites I follow about a LEGO Stranger Things set. Like most sets that come out this time of year, it will first be released to VIPs and then the general public in June.

LEGO Stranger Things
LEGO Stranger Things Set 85810

Supposedly it will have 2287 pieces and be set number 85810. Somewhere in the $250 price range. I don’ know how many minifigures it will contain. It is supposed to be a model of Joyce Byers home. I’d love to see a Winona Ryder Minifigure of course, too.

LEGO 75223 Naboo Starfighter Microfighter

LEGO 75223 Naboo Starfigher Microfighter 485

Can you believe this is part of the 6th series of microfighters?  Of course it is the first I’m building on this channel.  I love these sets for their swoosh-ability.  This starwars Microfighter comes with a Kid Anakin, a R2-D2 dome top and a couple of flick missles for some cool combat.

LEGO 75223 Naboo Starfighter™ Microfighter is a new 2019 set that was released in January of 2019.  It has 62  pieces and is labeled for ages 6 and up.

LEGO 75223 Pieces & Minifigures

There are 62 pieces in this set, including 1 minifigures.  You get Anakin Skywalker.  You also get an R2-D2 dome top, a wrench, and a printed control panel – no stickers.

In this set there are 2 bags, and one instruction book

LEGO 75223 Review

This was a pretty easy set to build – nothing too complicated, although I did put the printed control panel in backwards (and a cheese slope, too), but quickly realized my mistake and corrected it.

It comes with an Anakin Skywalker minifig, in the child form, with the old style short legs that don’t bend.  In fact all of the microfighters I’ve ever built have the short leg versions of the minifigures.

There is a tiny slot in the Microfighter for Anakin to stand in. Plus the set comes with a little wrench for him to work on his craft.

LEGO 70824 Release Date

Lego 75223 Naboo Starfighter™ Microfighter is a new 2019 set that was released in January of 2019.  It has 62  pieces and is labeled for ages 6 and up. I bought it at the LEGO store at my Mall.

Lego 70841 Benny’s Space Squad

Four space minifigs for ten bucks?  Yes Please!  Especially when one is Benny from the LEGO Movie 2.  You know the one, the over-enthusiastic spaceman who just wants to build a Spaceship!  But in this set you get him, and 3 of his friends in alternatively colored suits.  Plus a little bit more.

Lego 70841 Benny’s Space Squad is a new 2019 set that was released in December of 2018.  It has 68 pieces and is labeled for ages 5 and up.

LEGO 70824 Pieces & Minifigures

There are 68  pieces in this set, including 4 minifigures.  Not only do you get the Blue space Man Benny, but also the Yellow Space Man Kenny, the Pink Spaceman Lenny, and the White spaceman (woman) Jenny.    Plus there are enough other pieces to make a little robot, a car, and a SPACESHIP!

In this set there are 2 numbered bags, and one instruction book

LEGO 70824 Review

I’d definitely categorize this as an Easy build.  There are only 2 small bags and no complicated pieces or connections.  What is so awesome is that you get 4 LEGO minifigures.  That’s a lot.  Normally you get 1 or 2 in a set this price, and never anyone as popular as Benny.  It would be like getting a Ninjago Set with Cole, Lloyd, Zane and Kai or a Friends Set with Stephanie, Mia, Andrea, Emma or Olivia.

Additionally, each Minifig comes with a handheld accessory – a scanner, laser gun, walkie-talkie or wrench.  Plus there is a  little brick built robot, a car and a mini spaceship with a printed tile!

The Robot is less than 10 pieces, and uses some pretty tiny elements. It’s not the most sturdy build but sometimes you sacrifice stability for play-ability.

The car, is based in the classic space theme. It uses the grey bricks, has little off-road tires, and has a couple of clips in the back to hold the tools. There is room for 1 minifigure as the driver. If I were to improve on the build of this car, I would have incorporated a little box in the back that opens up.

The spaceship is also based on the classic space theme with blue and grey elements. There’s room for 1 minifigure to fly it. What I like best is the printed slope tile with the classic LEGO space logo on it.

LEGO 70824 Release Date

This set was released on new Year’s day 2019. Initially I went to my local LEGO store to buy it, but by mid morning it had sold out. My Target stores didn’t have any on the shelves either. So I looked at Amazon, and they too were sold out! I decided to order it from Target with my RED card so I’d get the 5% discount. I got the sets on Jan 6th.

2019 Lego 60206 Sky Police Jet Patrol

If you are looking for an easy to build, beginner LEGO airplane set for your kiddo, the Sky Police Jet Patrol is a fantastic starter into the world of LEGO, or as a gift for a 4 year old.

Lego 60206 Sky Police Jet Patrol is a new 2019 set that was released in January of 2019.  It has 54 pieces and is labeled for ages 4 and up.

LEGO 60206 Pieces & Minifigures

There are 54  pieces in this set, including 2 minifigures (Sky Police pilot and a crook).  The airplane is built using a large blue airframe element so it goes together very quickly. It’s the same one that’s in this LEGO Spider man set.

In this set there are 2 numbered bags, and one instruction book. There are no stickers, and several pieces are printed (which I love).

LEGO Printed Panel

One of the printed pieces I really like is the control panel in the Jet. So much different than the LEGO bricks I grew up with.

LEGO 60206 Review

If you are looking for an easy beginner set, one where your child can do it alone, or with minimal help from an adult, this is a GREAT starting place. The Airplane is built on a single chassis, and the other pieces snap easily onto it.

There are some tiny pieces to this set, like the crowbar, or the handcuffs, but for me the most difficult piece is the clear blue (LEGO folks call it Trans-blue) face shield on the Pilot’s helmet. It is challenging to put on, and easily snaps off and gets lost. Some sets include 2 of these, but my set didn’t come with any extras.

The minifigures also connect easily together. They come as 4 pieces, and are partially assembled. The bottom leg half snaps into the top torso piece. Then the head goes on, then the hat (or hair). They can easily be disassembled and the pieces are interchangeable. Also, the legs are pre-assembled, as is the torso. What I mean is that the hands are already in the arms, which are already in the torso. But if you want to take these apart, you can if you want to.

LEGO crook using a crowbar to break inside a safe.

This is a great starter set, or as a birthday present for a 4-5 year old who loves airplanes.  Designed for ages 4+ it is an easy build and a great way to introduce kids to the LEGO world.

New LEGO sets being released in February 2019

I’ve been slowly learning about new LEGO sets that will be released in February 2019. All the info you see here is official, meaning that it doesn’t come from a rumor website, or a strange twitter account. If the set appears on the official LEGO website, I use their photos (with credit of course).

Wow, after the blockbuster release of new sets last month (there were over 100). There were so many sets that came out that I had to do two blog posts about it – one of my usual January new sets where I featured the new Overwatch series, and another list of all the 100+ LEGO sets.

Honesty, I didn’t think LEGO had any more new sets to release.

With the upcoming The LEGO Movie 2, coming to the US on Feb, 8, I think LEGO Group wanted to save a few of those themed sets to be launched closer to the movie dropping.

The LEGO Movie 2

I’m so excited for both of these! Welcome to Apocalypseburg! and a LEGO Movie 2 based CMF with 20 new Characters.

Let’s start with the Welcome to Apocalypseburg! set. With 3178 pieces this set is targeted for ages 16+ and in my experience this will be a more advanced set.

0840 Welcome to Apocalypseburg Front
0840 Welcome to Apocalypseburg Back

Welcome to Apocalypseburg! will have 12 new minifigures based on the movie:

LEGO 71023 LEGO Movie 2 Custom Minifigures

The LEGO Movie 2 Custom Minifigures will be set number 71023, and will consist of 20 new style blind bags where it is going to be harder to “feel” which character is inside.

I don’t know the official names for each of these Minifigures, and will update this post when I learn more.

  1. Emmet
  2. Lucy
  3. Benny
  4. President Business
  5. Unikitty
  6. Rex Dangervest
  7. Dorothy
  8. the Tin Man
  9. the Scarecrow
  10. the Cowardly Lion
  11. Watermelon Suit Guy
  12. Giraffe Guy
  13. Crayon Suit Girl
  14. Pink Popstar
  15. Blue Popstar
  16. Abraham Lincoln Vampire Hunter
  17. Cat Girl Guitarist
  18. Hawaiian Singer
  19. Apocalypseburg Crazy Cat Lady
  20. Apocalypseburg Swamp Creature

I don’t know how many of each will appear in each “box”. But if it is the usual 60, I hope there will be an even distribution of 3 each. No matter what happens I’ll buy a full box and share what I find with you.

2019 Lego 70680 Ninjago Monastery Training

The smallest Ninjago LEGO set of 2019, Monastery Training packs quite a punch, with 2 minifigures, lots of golden weapons and some special armor. It’s a great introduction into the LEGO world of Ninjago, but it doesn’t have any of the main characters.

Lego 70680 Ninjago Monastery Training is a new 2019 set that was released in January of 2019.  It has 122 pieces and is labeled for ages 6 and up.

LEGO 70680 Pieces & Minifigures

There are 122  pieces in this set, including 2 minifigures.  You get Kai and Nya, as well as some brick built training dummies.   There is also some very cool Samurai X training armor with a decorative gold-colored moon blade, and many golden colored weapons.

In this set there are 2 regular bags, plus a bag of custom LEGO gold ninja weapons, and one instruction book. There are no stickers, and one 2×4 tile printed element (which I love).

LEGO 60212 Review

This is a pretty good starter set if you want to get into the LEGO world of Ninjago. There are some cool golden weapons, and a neat little training Dojo. It also comes with 2 minifigures, Kai and Nya who are main characters, but not THE main characters. 

LEGO Ninjago Training Dummies

Overall it’s a fun build. A pretty easy set to put together, but there are a few places where you could get messed up, although it’s not so complicated the fix is hard. If you watch my YouTube video of this slow build, you can see where I had one thing upside down and had to fix it.

It’s a fun set to play with, as you can use the minifigs and have the attack the different training dummies, or punching bag. There is even a little wand where you stand a minifig, and move them around the training arena.
