    LEGO City 2020 - Rumors, Speculation, and Discussion

    How many CMF prints and parts that have been usually exclusive have been put into sets this year? Stuff like this is just making CMFs worth less. :/

    Disney Princesses 2020 - Rumors & Discussion

    They’ll both release September 1st (at least in Europe), the tower for €60 and cottage for €40 as per Hothbricks. I was thinking that they might not be doing variants on Aurora’s dress as there tends to be only one set on store shelves at a time. This could mean LEGO might want Aurora to be sold in her default look at all times. I don’t think this really counts as the default look though. The bottom half is nice for a photograph, but it’s not that great for display and certainly not great for kids. :/ The best thing about this dress piece is the fact that it shows the blue dress is on LEGO’s radar. A lot of Disney Princess sets have creative liberties. :P It’s not a new mould, it’s from Tangled: The Animated Series 2018 sets. Oh and the high res photos have revealed that Rapunzel has a new face print. She has medium nougat eyebrows and a grinning expression, which seems like a really weird choice for a default look. It was weird to me that Cinderella had lighter brows than everyone for the first two years. At least now Belle, Aurora and Rapunzel also have coloured ones. I wonder if they’ll continue this trend for Ariel, Pocahontas, Merida, Anna and Elsa who all also have colored eye brows. Lastly the new Maleficent has the same eyes as the princesses. Why? XP I really don’t like the inconsistency in these eye prints. Now none of the boys have them bar Beast (as he reuses Micro Beast’s head) and other than him Maleficent is the only other character. This will just make her look needlessly weird next to Ursula. XP It should be interesting to see what happens next year. Maybe all secondary females will get this new eye look? XP

    I really love the cottage build! I mean for a 5+ it looks outstanding. All the bright colours go together really well. I especially love the pink and blue colored leaves! That’s simple but really effective, not to mention eye catching. I can’t way to see the inside of the cottage, I’m hoping for at least a cake. As others have pointed out there’s some nice references to the film within the build like the smoke coming from the chimney. The little side build of the bridge is equally lovely, I’m kind of amazed it’s in a 5+ set. I’m just really sad that this set doesn’t come with anything figure wise I hoped it would. There’s no Briar Rose dress, Phillip, Samson or any of the fairies. I have no idea how they’re going to release these now. It seems like we’re going to have to wait years, until this set is remade. I guess the hint at Aurora’s dress changing blue is nice, but it’s really frustrating that this is our fifth mini doll Aurora and she’s still in the pink dress. Practically ever other toy company that has had the Disney Princess brand from 2014 (same year LEGO started making sets) has sold the princesses in different dresses. I have no idea why LEGO is so reluctant. With the exception of Anna, Ariel and Elsa all we get is variants based on their most iconic dress. XP Maleficent looks much better than her last version, the black around her head is practically impressive. Two Maleficents over the course of two years seems like too much though, considering how few mini dolls get made in this theme. This does suggest they’re willing to do villains in the future and I suspect Hans will be next. Animal wise it is really nice to finally get one of Aurora’s bird (even if it’s already been in two sets), her rabbit which is finally in its correct colour and Maleficent’s crow. I don’t think the Friends crow and rabbit suits those characters well, but we have to make do with what we have. XD What’s most confusing is they gave Aurora a fawn. I don’t believe there is a fawn in Sleeping Beauty? This is a new print (see the spots and brown eyes) which means it wasn’t that cheap of an inclusion either. I just feel like the inclusion of that undercuts Snow White. :P I bet it and the grey rabbit will make their way into Friends sets though! Rapunzel’s tower looks excellent. The build for the roof and the secret entrance at the bottom are particularly well done. There might be too much of a reliance on large stickered panels, but getting a round look and keeping it brick built would’ve probably been difficult at this scale and bump up the piece count. They are really nice stickers though and much better than the last one. As with the cottage, I can’t wait to see the inside. The side builds of the swing is neat and like the last one has the suggestion that she’s using her hair via the cool yellow brick. The Snuggly Duckling build isn’t great to me. It looks like they had parts left over and quickly drafted something up. There might be a hidden function inside but I think the outside is under whelming and I’d have zero idea it was the Snuggly Duckling if the sign wasn’t too the side. I believe this is our first LEGO pub so there’s that. XD Rapunzel looks fantastic! The barefoot look looks even better than I thought it would. Flynn also looks really good, even if I don’t think the Hans Solo hair works it was a nice idea. I really don’t like that Pascal mould, but they managed to make it better than last time with the printing. No Gothel is beyond disappointing especially when there’s a villain in the same wave. They should’ve switched the prince and villain. XP I feel like they could’ve had two larger Tangled sets, this one and one $30-40ish with the kingdom and boat ride. I don’t see a point in getting that second set now that Flynn is here. Honestly if they included Maximus this would’ve been a pretty complete Tangled sets for kids. While I like both of these sets, I don’t think I’m going to pick either of them up until they’re significantly discounted. I already have the last Aurora/Maleficent set and old Rapunzel’s Tower. These both are leagues better than those two sets, but do I really need two? :P I would’ve easily bought them full price if they came with new mini doll characters, but they don’t. :( Aurora probably has the least exciting of all animal sidekicks as apart from the Owl (who we already have) they don’t do much, or have names. So they don’t help that much either. :P I can’t wait to see what’s in store for next year and at the very least this suggests we’re going to continue to get princes and villains. :)

    Yay my prediction of Mrs. Claus was right! Dottie’s face would’ve worked better than Alicia’s, but the latter was probably cheaper as it’s in a few sets currently in production. Her outfit looks great though and that hair piece works well. It’s a shame the Elves use the same face, as it would’ve been nice to get a female one even if it’s not new. I guess it’s noteworthy this is the only mini doll set ever to include two male dolls and first make head to have freckles. I wonder if we’ll see it on a regular boy next year? Lastly, Emma’s new torso is amazing! We haven’t gotten any pajamas yet and I hope to see more in the future now we got our first top. None of the builds jump out at me as being amazing, but none stick out as bad either. What’s most interesting about the builds (besides the waffle piece appearing here in a cheaper set) is that there’s very little attempt to include the girl’s colour schemes. Emma’s outfit is also in light royal blue, which isn’t one of her colours. Perhaps next year they’ll almost completely abandon the sets have to be mostly in the girls’ colours concept?

    The series 20 Breakdancer’s torso is reused in the middle sized set. This trend of reusing pieces is only making CMFs feeling less and less special. :/

    They’re definitely not exclusives if you search them you can find listings of them on other retail sites. The August release Trolls set was added to LEGO.com on July first, so unless one of these other retailers leak the two Disney Princess sets hopefully LEGO will reveal them August 1st.

    Oh I’m really excited! That image suggests they’re in the summer instructions, which makes it unlikely they’ll be shelved. I wonder if the summer ones could be out in July in certain locations? Transparent opal is such a gorgeous colour! But now I’m really annoyed that the jungle series wasn’t a different colour. :P

    I love to see new colours used in displays for retired themes! Great job this put a smile on my face.

    This is odd. I wonder what’s going to happen with the winter ones or if they’ll be shelved completely? Don’t forget we got adult turtles in series 2! At the very least the lavender one in this wave will work with the adult lavender friends turtle from 2014. :)

    I’m really excited that this theme is introducing more parts in light nougat and reintroducing the circular tiles from Friends! I really don’t like it when LEGO use tan to represent skin tone in BrickHeadz/BrickSketches etc. so I hope this is a sign that they’re more willing to recolour in light nougat. :)

    They seem to be in the official summer LEGO catalog. Check out Promobricks’ Instagram. They have photos of them.

    It’s a real shame we can’t get a mini-doll D2C. Heartlake Hotel was the fifth best selling set of 2015 despite being €120 so there’s definitely a market there. This D2C uses the Disney mini-doll set numbering too. :(

    Lego Dots 2020

    The August (?) sets leaked! They use a new style of bracelet with one row of 14 studs instead of two rows. There’s two of these in each set: 41909 has aqua and dark blue bracelets. There’s teal and silver quarter tiles and blue opal and lavender 1x1 round plates. The prints are a white quarter tile with an opal coloured mermaid scale and a transparent blue 1x1 teeth plate with a white shell print. 41910 has the bracelets in cool yellow and light pink, there’s also quarter tiles in these colours. There’s yellow, pink, transparent yellow and what I believe to be pink opal 1x1 round tiles. I’m in love with the prints! 1x1 teeth pieces in light yellow and light pink with sprinkles on top. There’s also 1x1 plates with smiley faces and the end of the cone to go beneath. What I believe to be 41918 has these bracelets in orange and teal. There’s coral, light yellow, green and coral quarter tie pieces and medium azure and flame yellowish orange 1x1 round tiles. I’m a bit confused what some of the prints are meant to be: there’s definitely a 1x1 flame yellowish Orange plate as a fox, 1x1 medium azure one as a bear and they have matching quarter tie pieces in their colours below saying bff. Then there’s a camera and compas 1x1 round tiles? I’m not exactly sure. These look very intriguing! Looks like DOTs is sticking around for a while!

    According to a leaker on Instagram his catalogue says these release in July! He showed the animals too being a seal, turtle, flamingo, baby dolphin and baby turtle in coral, yellow, spring yellowish green and lavender.

    An Italian retailer listed them as September but Promobricks has listed them as October. I still think it be weird to see them come out after Summer. I really like the stickers included amongst these cubes! The stickers in the others have been uninteresting but these are really striking to me and look like they could easily fit in any beach scene. I’m excited to see the full scenes of all these cubes with better quality photos but the builds look like the best yet and use their small parts budget very well. Sadly I can’t see any new minidoll faces, torsos or leg pieces. Emma’s, Olivia’s and Mia’s torsos are all new for this wave though so at least there’s that. Poor Mia has worn the same shorts and shoes in two of the play cubes already. XP I think Emma’s sunglasses might be in satin pink (they look very different to Andrea’s so one of them has a new colour), she also has a new ice cream cone recolour in medium nougat which is going to be useful. I also can’t wait to see what animals were going to get for this wave!
