Navigating the Internet on April Fool's Day is notoriously tricky and many LEGO websites like to join in with their own spurious news stories and announcements.
We chose not to participate this year but a number of other LEGO websites published some fun articles which are summarised below.
- LEGO announced production of the VacuSort, a new vacuum sorting device for LEGO.
- The Brothers Brick revealed the latest BrickHeadz twin pack, 41630 Trump & Putin.
- The Brick Fan announced that LEGO had partnered with Funko to create vinyl minifigure characters.
- BrickNerd revealed a leaked Solo: A Star Wars Story set containing a young Luke Skywalker minifigure.
- BricksFanz reported that LEGO would be manufacturing food accessories from a new edible plastic compound and that images of new sets would now be dispatched from LEGO by post in the hope of avoiding leaks.
- Jay's Brick Blog announced that LEGO would be producing James Bond sets as well as its own cryptocurrency, Brickcoin.
- Zusammengebaut revealed that the Ultimate Collector's Series would be expanded to encompass themes beyond Star Wars.
- The Rambling Brick announced that Jack Stone would be returning with an updated version of the spectacular 4607 Copter Transport.
