For Animation Fans: LEGO Ideas Steamboat Willie

LEGO Ideas Steamboat Willie

Steamboat Willie is an iconic piece of animation history and this monochromatic build recreates the cartoon in LEGO form.

It’s a great-looking and unique LEGO set that fans of LEGO, Disney, or animation as a whole are sure to fall in love with.

For Star Wars Fans: LEGO Star Wars: The Mandalorian the Razor Crest

LEGO Star Wars: The Mandalorian The Razor Crest

The Mandalorian has proved itself as one of the most widely loved pieces of Star Wars media in a while. And the ship the Mandalorian uses in it, the Razor Crest, is already on it’s way to becoming a piece of Star Wars iconography. This set faithfully captures the ship in all its glory, and comes with a good cast of minifigs to boot: the Mandalorian himself, IG-11, a Scout Trooper, Greef Karga, and, of course, an adorably small Baby Yoda (or “The Child”). The ship’s interior can be accessed from the sides and rear, and has some fun details tucked away in both the lower level and cockpit.

The ship has a few tricks up its sleeve as well, such as the spring-loaded shooters on the front, or an escape pod that can be detached from the rest of the ship.

You can buy this set on LEGO’s website along with Amazon.

Dino Display: LEGO Ideas Dinosaur Fossils

LEGO Ideas Dinosaur Fossils

Dinosaur fossils are pretty cool, and LEGO has created these fantastic desk displays of three well-known dinos for LEGO fans with a paleontological leaning. The kit includes bricks and displays for a Tyrannosaurus Rex, Triceratops, and Pteranodon along with a Paleontologist minifig and a LEGO-sized human skeleton for scale. All of the dinos are posable as well, so builders can choose exactly how they look once they’re displayed.

You can buy this set from LEGO’s website along with Amazon.

There’s a pencil folder, picture frame, and a small desk organizer that can all be built and customized to the builder’s liking. It’s a simple but practical way for LEGO fans to show off their LEGO pride, while also having a convenient way to store sticky notes.

You can see more of the DOTS line on LEGO’s website.

Bang for Your Buck: LEGO 3in1 Sets

LEGO Creator 3in1 Space Rover Kit

For younger builders in particular, one of the best parts about a new LEGO set is seeing how you can repurpose the bricks for something else, and that’s an idea the 3-in-1 sets actively encourage. As the name suggests, each set provides instructions for three different builds that can be made with the included bricks. Whether it’s a dragon, space rover, or underwater robot, these sets provide great builds out of the box while also encouraging creativity—a win on every front. There are also some larger sets that feature alternate instructions you can download, specifically Technic models like this rescue helicopter/jet or a Corvette that doubles as an old hot rod.

You can also find these sets on LEGO’s website or Amazon.

Bricky Figures: LEGO BrickHeadz Line

LEGO Disney BrickHeadz Donald Duck

The BrickHeadz line provides some quality builds and recreates many iconic characters in a unique style. Whether the person you’re shopping for is a fan of classic monsters, Star Wars, or Disney, there’s sure to be a BrickHeadz figure for them. The finished builds are small enough to stick on a shelf or desk and provide a different feel from other LEGO sets, while still keeping in the style.

Random Minifigs

LEGO Random Minifigures Bag Series 20

Minifigs go a long way towards making a Lego build come alive, and these random packs are perfect for building up any Lego fan’s arsenal. Each pack comes with one minifig a piece from whatever line it’s representing. There are the general lines like the one pictured above, and also more specific bags for stuff like Harry Potter or DC Superheroes. The choices change quite a bit over time, so it’s worth looking at what’s available at the moment and picking from those.
