LEGO usually releases new sets at the beginning of the month, however, whenever larger waves are expected, they often release at least some of the sets a bit earlier to minimize strain on their website and spread out the rush of new orders. As April is usually a big month with new releases, it makes sense that several sets became available early. This includes the second wave of The LEGO Movie 2 sets, the LEGO Spider-Man: Far from Home sets, and the LEGO Toy Story 4 sets. So let’s take a closer look at what we got in these collections.
➡ SECOND WAVE OF THE LEGO MOVIE 2 SETS: We get three new sets in this wave; the #70837 LEGO Movie 2 Shimmer & Shine Sparkle Spa, the #70838 LEGO Movie 2 Queen Watevra’s So-Not-Evil Space Palace, and the #70839 LEGO Movie 2 The Rexcelsior. The #70837 LEGO Movie 2 Shimmer & Shine Sparkle Spa features an arched entrance, buildable loudspeakers, lever-operated revolving wall for Balthazar to ‘transform’ into a vampire bat, hot tub with an opening lid and trapdoor function, buildable sink, 2 removable tables, 6 brick-built potion bottles and assorted elements. Characters include Washed-out Wyldstyle, Benny, Balthazar, Calm-Down Kitty, Flaminga, Eight, Archimedes, and Balthazar vampire bat. The #70838 LEGO Movie 2 Queen Watevra’s So-Not-Evil Space Palace features a rotating top section with an opening, detachable rocket for Queen Watevra Wa’Nabi, detachable pods for other characters, security room, detailed dining room and a DJ booth. Characters include Bachelor Batman, Celeste, plus Queen Watevra Wa’Nabi, Ice Cream Cone, Star, Royal Guard and 2 Heart brick-built figures. Both sets come with lots of interesting pieces and sparkly colors. The #70839 LEGO Movie 2 The Rexcelsior is the largest set in the collection and features Rex’s spaceship shaped like a clenched fist. It has opening doors and lift-off roofs, dual microfigure cockpit, and a detailed microscale interior with various rooms and compartments. The handle at the back has a trigger to activate the rapid-fire, 6-missile spring-loaded shooter. Characters included are Stubble Trouble Emmet and Rex Dangervest, plus Emmet and Rex microfigures, and 5 micro raptor dinosaurs. The measures over 7” (19cm) high, 15” (40cm) long and 8” (21cm) wide, so yes, it’s big! You can find all the new sets, along with the previous releases at The LEGO Movie 2 section of the Online LEGO Shop.
➡ LEGO SPIDER-MAN FAR FROM HOME SETS: We recently got the new LEGO Marvel Super Heroes Avengers: Endgame sets, and now three new LEGO Marvel Super Heroes Spider-Man: Far from Home sets are also available; The #76128 LEGO Marvel Super Heroes Molten Man Battle, the #76129 LEGO Marvel Super Heroes Hydro-Man Attack, and the #76130 LEGO Marvel Super Heroes Stark Jet and the Drone Attack. I have to say that the fire monster in the #76128 LEGO Marvel Super Heroes Molten Man Battle looks especially good! It is over 7” (18cm) tall, has posable joints, a gripping claw, 6-stud rapid shooter, buildable ‘melting’ objects including half a car, street lamp and a traffic light attached to its body, molten lava elements and attachment points for minifigures. The three minifigs included are Spider-Man, Mysterio and a firefighter (trying to put out the raging fire monster with a tiny fire extinguisher – funny!). The #76129 LEGO Marvel Super Heroes Hydro-Man Attack includes MJ, Peter Parker, Mysterio, and Hydro-Man, plus a small slice of Venice. The jet in the #76130 LEGO Marvel Super Heroes Stark Jet and the Drone Attack is elegantly shaped and includes adjustable wings, an energy bomb storage compartment, a dual minifigure cockpit with a rear passenger seat and an opening hatch function, plus a couple of stud-shooters. You can press the button on the top of the jet to drop energy bombs or let Spider-Man swoop down on his spider web string. The set includes Happy Hogan, Nick Fury, Spider-Man, and Mysterio. Note that these sets qualify you for the free exclusive #40334 LEGO Avenger’s Tower with purchases of $75 or more. Check the LEGO Marvel Super Heroes section of the Online LEGO Shop.
➡ LEGO TOY STORY 4 SETS: There are seven new LEGO Toy Story 4 sets; six in the LEGO 4+ line (formerly LEGO Juniors), and one under LEGO DUPLO. The sets include the #10766 LEGO Toy Story Woody & RC, #10767 LEGO Toy Story Duke Caboom’s Stunt Show, #10768 LEGO Toy Story Buzz & Bo Peep’s Playground Adventure, #10769 LEGO Toy Story 4 RV Vacation, #10770 LEGO Toy Story Buzz & Woody’s Carnival Mania, #10771 LEGO Toy Story Carnival Thrill Coaster, and the #10894 LEGO DUPLO Toy Story Train. Although the sets are meant for younger builders they can be also interesting to older fans due to the interesting decorated elements, and the minifigures. Note that the minifigs come with regular heads instead of the specialized pieces the previous Toy Story sets had. You can find the sets under the LEGO Juniors section of the Online LEGO Shop.
Also, remember that the LEGO Powered Up components are now available individually. We talked about them a few days ago: LEGO Powered Up Parts Now Available! You can find them in the LEGO Power Function section of the Online LEGO Shop.
