THE TRIDENT SHRINE
this idea set includes drowned, Steve, and tropical fish...
main action feature: hidden sponge and trident holding shrine
this set would require a new trident but the one in the picture is the Atlantis gold trident, a bigger head for the drowned, and a new fish mold,
Although it probably won't happen, it would be cool to see a larger build with a "redstone contraption" play feature. Like a hidden technic and levers thing that you could make a figure fall down a hole or control a door (kind of like the temple set but more) by triggering it somehow and it would click the button on the back of a light brick to represent a redstone lamp (lighting the set). It wouldn't have to be too complicated, but something more like a larger play feature.
An Overwatch theme seems like a fairly smart bet not just because of being colorful and approachable but also because it stands a good chance of being a big hit in east Asia, a market Lego has long desired to gain a stronger foothold in. South Korea in particular is hugely into Overwatch from what I've seen (and Japan to a slightly lesser extent).
I think we'll see Minecraft sort of slow down and fade away rather than suddenly go out with a bang. At this point it'd be wiser for Lego to just release fewer sets if they think their audience is shrinking rather than quit altogether after this big year.
Really? I would thunk something called "Bedroom adventures" would be more adult-oriented...
set includes: new skin, villager, pillager, and beast
mainbuild is small villager house
newparts would be, new player skin, crossbow, and beast head...
action feature is breakable Wall...
SET IDEA 3
minecon vote 668 parts, 48,99$
comes with a alpaca, Llama, mob a, mob b, mob c, and mob d, ostrich, fox, and merekat...
3 different biomes each with there special inclusions, savanna with small baobab tree and a termite, taiga with spruce tree and campfire and a berry bush, and desert with palm tree and oasis...
each mob comes with stand
[only available during minecon 2019 week at target]
As for other sets, I'm surprised we haven't yet seen a desert temple. I suppose the reason is it would need to be relatively large, and could reasonably have only a couple play features. I'm also surprised there hasn't been a beacon in any of the sets with bases. A small one wouldn't require too many pieces.
Good idea with the ocean themed sets!
On the topic of a desert temple, I can think of two viable routes for Lego to take:
the parrot party!
parts 890ps and 80$
contains 5 mini-figs, Steve with elytra, creeper, and 2 parrots and a ocelot
main build is top of a jungle tree with a elytra launching feature
has 2 new blocks, jukebox, and a filled cauldron of water...
also a new item, music disk [can contain 3]
I am guessing the BigFig series will go the way of unikitty and be series one 'and only'. If steve doesn't sell well what hope is there for others.
This was the rumoured summer wave:
21153 - The Wool Farm - 260 pcs
21154 - The Blazing Bridge - 372 pcs
21155 - The Creeper Mine - 834 pcs
In the past Minecraft has been late to leak/be shown so these could still be happening.
As for the film, you know it came out in this month with Steve Carrell (oh wait). Not sure Lego can keep a line going just to wait for a film that may happen.
The two normal sets we got this year were good, I thought Overwatch might be the end of Minecraft but now its hard to know what will happen with each line next year.
Anyway, we've got the first wave of 2020 sets:
#21156 BigFig Creeper and Ocelot
#21157 BigFig Pig with Baby Zombie
#21158 The Panda Nursery
#21159 The Pillager Outpost
#21160 The Illager Raid
#21162 The Taiga Adventure
#30394 The Skeleton Defense
I've already picked up the Panda set and will definitely be adding the remaining ones to my collection at some point. I'm especially looking forward to getting the various new Illagers.
The question, however, is: What on earth is #21161? Have any details been leaked about this set anywhere?
Oh, also, do we know how the #30394 polybag will be made available and when?
I'm mainly interested in the Creeper bigfig, that one looks really good in spite of the ocelot.
Anyway, I'll look forward to seeing what they come up with! :-)
We have the Panda set and Tiaga Adventure. Really looking forward getting the Pillager and Illager sets, although here in Switzerland the Illager set is far too expensive! Waiting for a discount or to get it from Amazon UK or Germany.
I previously read somewhere about the Crafting box, but not seen anything else about other sets.
I'm sure you've already seen the two new sets on the Brickset homepage and they are exactly as predicted by @Bumblepants. Good skills! :-)
#21161 The Crafting Box 3.0
#21163 The Redstone Battle
I'm not massively excited about the new Crafting Box, as it doesn't seem to have anything particularly new. There are some Birch gates, posts and fences, a new-style door and the usual Steve, Alex, Creeper & Pig.
It does look like there are a few of the new-ish 2x4 jumper plates in Green, which is nice and, finally, is there a Black implement in the chest? Perhaps it's just the usual Brown and the lighting making it look darker.
Other than that, I like the look of the four builds, so I'll look forward to seeing more details, as they come out.
The Redstone Battle is based on the new Minecraft Dungeons game, which I have played a little of, but not enough to form any major conclusions. It is set in a Minecraft-style world with Zombies, Creepers etc. but it is not a building game, more of a traditional adventure game. I've not encountered the strange-looking Redstone creature in this set, so have no idea as to their accuracy, but they look pretty impressive, with some printed parts and a lot of trans-red tiles! They seem to have been built in a very similar way to the Minecraft BigFigs that have been released, although meant to be Minifig scale.
Four new characters are a welcome addition and there is a new double-headed Axe and two Sickles, which do not appear in normal Minecraft.
It will be interesting to see whether Lego continue to release further Minecraft Dungeons-related sets and whether they will entirely replace the release of standard Minecraft ones. Personally, I may get The Redstone Battle, simply for completeness-sake, but I'm not 100% sure I'd continue to buy further Dungeons sets.
Going back to the sets released earlier in the year, I now have them all, but had to resort to eBay for #30394 The Skeleton Defense!
I really like all the sets, although have not yet built #21159 The Pillager Outpost. The Pandas are brilliant and I really like the new Villager and Illager minifigs and also the brick-built Ravager in #21160 The Illager Raid. Overall, a very good release, I thought!
Didn't know about the Minecraft Dungeons game, thanks for that.
With Mario adding to all the other themes surly something has to give and I always thought it would be Minecraft but I have been writing it off for years.
What ever happened to the film which kept get putting back?
Re: Dungeons, I got an email from Mojang inviting me to a Beta, so it's not on general release yet.
Regarding Minecraft in general, I think it is still extremely popular, if my daughters and their friends, plus all the YouTube streamers are anything to go by, plus Mojang have been releasing some excellent new content and look to be continuing to do so, so I'll be very happy to see Lego Minecraft continue. Not too much down the Dungeons route though!
