LEGO The Mandalorian & Minions Sets Coming!

With the New York Toy Fair starting today, we should expect to hear about many of the exciting new LEGO sets and themes scheduled for release later this year. So, let’s take a look at what we know so far.

The most talked about new sets are related to the Star Wars: The Mandalorian television series. The #75292 LEGO Star Wars The Razor Crest features The Mandalorian’s armored transport shuttle. It was a no-brainer for LEGO to make this set, as the spaceship was prominently features in all of the episodes, and it looks simply awesome. The LEGO version has a dual cockpit, a big cargo hold for carbonite bounty, spring-loaded shooters, a detachable escape pod, and even a bed to get some rest. The Razor Crest measures over 5.5” (14cm) high, 15” (38cm) long and 11” (28cm) wide. The four included minifigs are The Mandalorian, Greef Karga, IG-11, a Scout Trooper, and of course, the Child. 1,023 pieces. I’m not sure about the price yet, but information should be available soon at the LEGO Star Wars section of the Online LEGO Shop.

Because we can’t just have one set with The Child (a.k.a. Baby Yoda), LEGO also made a LEGO BrickHeadz version. The #75317 LEGO The Mandalorian & The Child set features brick-built Baby Yoda with adjustable ears for happy and sad expressions in a hoverpram, and The Mandalorian with a blaster rifle clipped to his back, a blaster pistol in his hand, plus binoculars. Both characters come with a baseplate for display. The Mandalorian measures 3” (8cm) tall, and the Child and hoverpram measures 3” (8cm) high. 295 pieces. The set will be available at the LEGO Star Wars section of the Online LEGO Shop. And remember, there are a couple of other sets related to the television series; the #75254 LEGO Star Wars AT-ST Raider from The Mandalorian, and the #75267 LEGO Star Wars Mandalorian Battle Pack. Both of them are available at the LEGO Star Wars section of the Online LEGO Shop.

A brand new theme was also revealed at the New York Toy Fair; LEGO Minions! Most of the sets are in the LEGO 4+ range to accommodate younger kids, but they can be interesting to adult collectors as well. The #75546 LEGO Minions in Gru’s Lab comes with Kevin and Otto. The #75547 LEGO Minions Pilot in Training comes with Bob and Stuart. The #75549 LEGO Minions Unstoppable Bike Chase comes with Bob, Stuart, and Gru. And the #75550 LEGO Minions Kung Fu Battle comes with Kevin, Otto, and Stuart. (Click on images for larger view.)

A larger set is the #75551 LEGO Brick-Built Minions and Their Lair is pretty interesting. Here is the official description: Want to step inside the unpredictable world of the Minions? Well, now you can! Build your favorite Minion then turn it around to reveal their room. Check out the figure version of each character. Put them inside the room to explore the mischievous personality of each Minion. Create inventions with Kevin in the lab or pop Stuart in his bedroom. Then rebuild Kevin into Bob with his kung fu playset. Inspired by the Minions: The Rise of Gru movie, kids can explore kung fu with Bob, build inventions with Kevin or let Stuart take a nap in his bedroom. Each brick-built LEGO Minion measures over 3” (9cm) long and 4” (11cm) wide. Kevin is over 5” (15cm) tall, Stuart is 5” (14cm) tall, and Bob is 4” (12cm) tall. Included minifigs are Stuart, Kevin, and Bob.

The Mandalorian television series has been received with overwhelming positivity, so I’m sure the sets will sell very well. The Minions could get popular with younger kids depending on the reception of the new film, and the King Fu Battle set could even be combined with the recently released LEGO Chinese New Year sets as it has the same color-scheme and decorative elements.

    Yes! More Mandalorian sets. I knew Lego couldn’t go with out making the Razer crest. That’s like making Boba Fett with out slave 1. ( I know Lego has , but you get my point). As for the minions, I’m trying so hard not to start a new theme. Lego you are not making it easy. Lol!

    Hmm, the Minions sets look better than I expected. They have a similar dumb fun vibe as the Angry Birds theme from a few years back.

    Then, I have some issues to sort out this year concerning both time, space and money, as well as a personal focus on retro themes from the 80’s and 90’s, so I likely won’t be buying any unless I’d get a magnificent deal, anyway…

  • Legostuff14 February 22, 2020, 3:52 PM

    Yeah, I know what you mean. Right now I’m playing catch up on some themes or sets I should say and Amazon has been having these great deals on certain Marvel sets. So, I’ve focusing on that lately.

    Omg! Baby yoda is adorable! The rasor crest is a must for me! Best ship in recent times.

  • Legostuff14 February 22, 2020, 7:55 PM

    So, off topic. I need some advice on something. Which of the new Ninjago sets is a must-have?

  • Håkan February 22, 2020, 8:14 PM

    Hmm, I’m not really a Ninjagog, or whatever the term for a fan is, but I guess 71708 Gamer’s Market is a good minifig pack, and 71710 Ninja Tuner Car and 71713 Empire Dragon are nicely designed. 71702 Golden Mech also looks pretty imposing.

    That’s been sort of along the lines that I’ve been thinking. But, I’m also looking at the $20. Lego city sets from last year and this year that are pretty good. This where I get overwhelmed with too many sets to decide from and I feel like crawling in a hole and rocking back and forth and say ” my precious must find my precious.”. Lol!

    So exciting! I hope that they also make the forge scene.

  • hushpuppy February 23, 2020, 4:56 PM

    Baby yoda for the win! I elect baby yoda for president! 😀

    I don’t care for the minions. Isn’t mega blocks making sets for them too? Or they used to?

    • Håkan February 23, 2020, 5:57 PM

      They used to, but I guess their license expired, or that Lego outbid them to synchronize sets for the new movie. Currently, I think Mega produces Angry Birds sets, though…

      • Håkan February 25, 2020, 8:19 AM

        Hmmm, apparently it was something else. I saw some Angry Birds collectible character building sets in a toy store recently. Could it have been Chinese Decool bootlegs? I might walk by again to find out what it was…

        • Håkan February 25, 2020, 4:37 PM

          Now I found the toys in the store, seems to be made by a company called “Edikue”, which curiously has next to no web presence or valid Google hits. The license seemed legitimate, though…
