It's all happening today... LEGO has just released images of minifigs from the two forthcoming Powerpuff Girls sets. Don't get too excited, though, as it seems they are the same as those in the Dimensions packs.

View Buttercup, Bubbles and Blossom in all their glory after the break, and expect more revelations in the run-up to the New York Toy Fair this weekend...

Nothing we haven't seen before, unfortunately. I can't wait for a good look at Mojo Jojo!

Ehh.... The ugliest minifigs I ever seen!

Didn't they reveal them like a year ago when they were released in the Dimension sets? They are exactly the same.

Teen Titans Dimensions Starfire was definitely ugliest ever. These look pretty much just like the cartoon which is great imho.

Can't let those expensive head molds go to waste!

we've seen these already. Although Powerpuff sets sound really cool

Never heard of Powerpuff girls before. Maybe I'm getting too old. Bring back castle and pirates please.

I was hoping for actual set images. :(

@labronco2: It was a popular cartoon in the late 90s/early 2000s that was recently rebooted (though most people I know who enjoyed the original aren't fans of the reboot).

^^^ I'm guessing you weren't a child of the nineties, or didn't have a child in the nineties? ;-)

They are actually accurate to the source

What a small world this is--Hello, elspanky! I love your Bricklink store.

Slotborg, Powerpuff sets do sound really cool don't they? Too bad they aren't. haha One is a mess with a weird mech and the other is just a mess of 'buildings'. Hopefully they look better unblurred.

i can't believe that LEGO is making this. it makes me so mad!!!

I was thinking what seemed odd to me compared to the source. And now it hits me: The Lego ones have hands.

They may look ugly on their own, but lined up next to other Nickelodeon-Lego minifigs, they look great, i.e. Scooby-Doo, Simpsons, Sponge-Bob, Teenage Mutant Turtles, Avatar. I have all of them in a frame and they look good together.

I remember the show growing up. I wouldn't really care for the girls; but might have to Bricklink Mojo JoJo if he is available! That villainous monkey was awesome and will be hilarious to have as a minifig.

Gravatar
By in United States,

I will get these just for Mojo Jojo.

Gravatar
By in United States,

Reboot show is garbage compared to the original series, IMHO. Just looking forward to the Mojojojo minifig just cause.

On a side note, I personally didn't think Lego Scooby Doo was bad. Simpsons, Sponge Bob, and TMNT I would agree was pretty bad, though.

My daughter might like them, not really for me though lol..
Id love to see Wacky races or the Jetsons in lego form I, d but every set..

the reboot is worse than aids

Animation from this era just never did anything for me. I'm with the "bring back Space and Pirates" guy. Also get off my lawn.

Need Teen Titans to be released non-dimension with the full squad now.

The original LEGO Pirates theme ran from 1989 to 1997. Powerpuff Girls was on the air 1998-2005. There was less than a decade between the debut of each one; they're practically the same era.

Gravatar
By in United States,

I just wanna see the Rowdy Ruff Boys

And I wasn't born in the 90's and I still remember the original/reboot of Powerpuff Girls.

Gravatar
By in United States,

They don't works super great in LEGO format IMO, but I think that this is the best possible without making new molds for every piece (and even then there would be complaints about them not being LEGO enough). The only thing I kinda wished they changed would be flip buttercup's smile upside down. In the original's intro, as well as much of the show itself, she generally has an upset look.

I'm sorta 50/50 on the concept of PPG sets. I wonder if this means LEGO will do more sets based on other Cartoon Network properties (most likely only current ones, new or rebooted).

Dexter's Lab and Johnny Bravo please

I am excited for these!! Love the Powerpuff girls!!

Cool figs.

Does anyone here know how to make a bricklist?

Eh, they still look pretty horrible.

Man! This is so Bricktastic and FUNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNTASTIC!

Did TLG learn anything from Angry Birds? Little late for this party.

Gravatar
By in United States,

It's being reported elsewhere that the sets come out in August. Doesn't this break LEGO's rule about not showing anything past June?

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

I would want some figs of the space invasion Broccoli Monsters but I don't think that's going to happen unfortunately!

My daughters WERE the Powerpuff Girls for a couple of years. They used to run around the house in their costumes, and we loved that show back then. Will definite get this just for the nostalgia.

Gravatar
By in United States,

@boneheadhh1: The Angry Birds sets were a tie-in line for The Angry Birds Movie, which could also be considered "late to the party." Likewise, these new PPG sets are likely ment to tie-in with the IMO completely unnecessary reboot show.

My point is, it's not really Lego's fault, so much as the fault of the Cartoon Network, and Rovio/Sony Pictures. Either way, you were half right.

Gravatar
By in United States,

@Spartan Ghost Lego has every right not to take on a license. It’s their choice. The age group that really liked these shows in the nineties are not likely into LEGO at the moment.

Gravatar
By in United States,

@boneheadhh1: and you are absolutely right on these points. And now that i think about it, this isn't the first time Lego has made some questionable licensing choices. Like Ghostbusters 2016 (controversial), Speed Racer (did poorly with critics), Ben 10 (despite my being a fan of the franchise, i honestly think the constraction figure line was not the best way to go), and that's just off the top of my head.

By in Germany,

I'm also in the "never heard of them before LEGO made sets from the theme" camp, but I'm thinking about the target demographic as well. My kids watch quite a bit of TV, yet even they have never heard of Powerpuff Girls. Nor were they interested in those figures when I showed them this article.
I wonder to whom LEGO is trying to sell these. Perhaps that stuff is more popular in the US, which LEGO seems to be concentrating most of its efforts on nowadays anyway (even though the 2017 numbers show that even that doesn't really pay off).
Would love to see if LEGO actually did better if they scrapped all the expensive and unuccessful experiments like Angry Birds, Scooby Doo, Adventure Time, Ghostbusters 2016, Superhero Girls, etc. and indeed returned to universally popular themes of the past, like Space, Castle, Pirates or Western. I mean when I look at what my kids and their friends like to play, it's still stuff that fits into those categories, not into crap like "superheroes" or comic series tie-ins, especially of obscure stuff like this one.
Don't know what LEGO is thinking these days or how bad their numbers still need to become before they start to see the light.

Gravatar
By in United States,

I actually really like these figs, though they're the same as Dimensions so they probably didn't need a dramatic reveal. I've got enough to collect right now (including the LD team pack for these) so I probably won't get the sets, but I think it's a nice thing for LEGO to do. Always wanted more cartoons in their line up! Here's hoping for Steven Universe next (assuming McFarlen toys doesn't have to strict a license)!

Gravatar
By in United States,

Is the show even popular still? I that it was canceled a while ago...

Gravatar
By in United States,

I like how people here are saying Angry Birds Movie was a failed movie and a failed theme. They are making a sequel, it comes out next fall. I wouldn't be surprised if LEGO made a few more sets because I think they said they sold decently. Plus without the film we wouldn't have gotten the egg piece.

Also Ghostbusters 2016 license probably didn't cost LEGO anything. Let's not all act like we know what's going on in LEGO's business department.

Gravatar
By in United States,

I thought this would happen. Oh well, I bought the dimensions sets half off at Best Buy to not miss out on them. Now I can't wait to see the villains of the sets. That will be fun. I loved that show, even as an adult. I have yet to see the remake version.

Gravatar
By in United States,

To clarify my earlier statement, The Angry Birds Movie was a shameless cash grab by Rovio and Sony Pictures, seemingly unaware or not caring that the franchise was well past it's prime by the time the movie was released. That's hardly Lego's fault. That said, why they chose to do a tie-in series we may never know, just like we'll never know why they did sets for the likes of Prince of Persia (a critical and commercial failure) or the Lone Ranger.(ditto)

As for PPG, i'm no legal expert, but i feel as though these new sets are the product of a clause buried somewhere in the Dimensions licensing agreement. How else would one make sense of Lego making sets for a reboot series that we neither deserved nor needed?

And now that i've said my piece, i'm done arguing about this. If this drags on too long, things are going to get ugly, and feelings are going to get hurt, if they haven't already.
P.S. if an admin is reading this, the ability to directly reply to a comment would be most welcome.

It’s funny.. I look back on a life of achievements.. Challenges met, opponents defeated, hurdles jumped.. I have accomplished more than most men.. all without the use of my brain.

I think it's smart for Lego to release these if they already made the mold for dimensions, it's great to be able to pump more of those out. Not a PowerPuff Girls fan, but I know them better than I know Black Panther and Dr Strange.

How do people look at Lego Powerpuff Girls figures and call the source material obscure? It was one of the most iconic cartoons of the 90s. It was recently revived, and despite it being rather awful, it introduces itself to a whole new generation of children. These sets will surely sell somewhat well from kids interest and nostalgia reasons. And even if they don’t, Lego isn’t losing too much money since these are likely only made so the headmolds don’t go to waste.

And some of you really need to lighten up. Lego PPG, Super Heroes and Scooby Doo don’t exist in place of Castle and Space. Stop blaming licensed themes for that.

They are really ugly... certainly not worth getting.

Ha! Loved the cartoon. This and Dexters Lab got me watching Cartoon Network.
Heard that Bubbles will be in the 41287 Bubbles Playground Showdown set (w/a mech?) with Princess Morbucks (Princess Plénozas) and Blossom and Buttercup will be in the set 41288 Mojo Jojo Strikes with Mojo Jojo and a unicorn.
Definitely want a Mojo Jojo minifig!
Where's Blossom's long hair in the back? Should stick out to see from the front. Also the 'shine' white on the pupils are too close together. Should be a little further apart. Not much. This makes them almost looks cross-eyed.

Sugar, spice, and everything nice.
These were the ingredients chosen
to create the perfect little girls.
But Professor Utonium accidentally
added an extra ingredients to the concoction--
Chemical X!!!
Thus, the Powerpuff Girls were born!
Using their ultra-super powers
Blossom, Bubbles, and Buttercup
have dedicated their lives to fighting crime
and the forces of evil!

EDIT: I think I saw the leaked sets online. Looks like they're Duplo/Junior type sets with standard minifigs. The Blossom set looks like Duplo while the Mojo Jojo set is a 'Juniors'-type?

I know it is hard on your side of the pond to believe that there is more to the world that just your wonderful country, but trust me, there are other parts of the World that don't get all the BS shows that the American "entertainment" industry throws up. Thankfully, our TV stations are (for the most part) sensible enough to defer such shows to channels or air times hardly anybody watches, if they buy such shows at all.
Ignorance can sometimes be bliss you know.

By the way, I was still a kid/teen in the Nineties. I never saw or heard about "Powerpuff Girls" back then. Sounds more like a breakfast cereal than a TV show.

You know what the most "iconic" kids' TV shows over here were at the time?
Duck Tales and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.
