The LEGO Group broadcast their second annual LEGO CON on June 18, hosted by Vick Hope, Melvin Odoom, and Joel McHale. Evanna Lynch and Angus MacLane were among the special visitors. The event lasted two hours and included conversations with LEGO designers as well as a worldwide LEGO Masters construction project.
The various set revelations, though, were the fascinating sections of the presentation. Two of the sets will include classic LEGO themes. The others will feature licensed properties such as Avatar, Marvel, and others. All of the sets will be released later this summer. Fortunately for us, it’s like hitting the jackpot on Big Bass Bonanza!

The latest medieval LEGO Lion Knights’ Castle is large and detailed, and it marks a return; a Castle or Castle-related theme hasn’t been released since 2013. A functional drawbridge as well as a water wheel that powers a millstone are included in Set #10305. The interior of the castle, which contains a dungeon, an armory, and a kitchen, may be explored by builders. There’s also a small replica of the 1978 “Classic” yellow castle!

For the past few years, LEGO has been dabbling with Dots–smooth, round, 1×1 studs–to make realistic mosaics of renowned images and artworks. With brilliant greens, blues, oranges, and pinks, the next LEGO Flower Art mosaic set is more free-form than previous sets, allowing you to build your own unique floral art. Then, to complement the color palette of your home, you may hang it up. The set has a total of 2,780 pieces and costs $79.99. It will be available on August 1.
