LEGO Event - Fall 2018 Preview Party in NYC - LEGO Unikitty, Ninjago, Star Wars, Fantastic Beasts, Harry Potter, Powerpuff Girls, and more!


Down in Hell’s Kitchen, I was lucky to be asked to take a peek at the Fall 2018 and Holiday 2018 LEGO line! I was really hoping to see the new LEGO mini figures, but more on that later...

Nestled in the heart of the grit and construction that is the West Side of NYC, the LEGO event was a diamond in the rough. In front of the gallery was a pedicab transformed into the Millennium Falcon still hanging out from the May the Fourth event. 





From movie blockbusters to the upcoming and long-awaited Incredibles 2 (we saw this release at NY Toy Fair), to more releases of Harry Potter (just in time for the Broadway release), Fantastic Beasts (coming 2019), Star Wars, and more;
LEGO was chock full of pop culture, and interactive sets where social media and your love of LEGO really went hand in hand. LEGO Friends, LEGO Duplo, LEGO Brickheads, LEGO city, LEGO architecture, and more, there is enough for all for fall!

Below is a list of my favorites from the event. I was really looking forward to seeing the release of the LEGO mini figures for September 2018. However, the LEGO mini figures were not announced at this event! I questioned the LEGO people, and they could not discuss it. I mentioned Disney, and they just said, "Don't worry. It will be really cool." They really could not say what it was, and I do not want to speculate, but I feel in my heart that Disney LEGO Mini Figures Series 2 will be released this fall 2018. If I am wrong, I am wrong, but I really do not think I am. I don't know why - it's just a feeling. LEGO did not tell me anything, nor hint at anything about the release; I am just a hopeful fan! For a more in-depth look, check out our video on our YouTube Channel. 




Excuse my dorkiness. 

Some sets of note would be from the LEGO Creator Mobile Stunt Show for its homage to Evel Knievel, as well as, the detail to the Ninjago City Docks set. I also love the LEGO City People Pack with the selfie stick toting minifig and the babywearing father. I really loved just taking in the whole shelf of the LEGO City People Pack; it was just a sign of today and very current. 

Big thank you to LEGO for including me, yet again, and inviting me! I really feel so special to be apart of the LEGO press family. 

I tried to get as much coverage as I could, but I had a previous engagement the next town over, and commuting from Manhattan to Queens is tough at rush hour! Please forgive me if I cannot answer any questions that you may have!
