LEGO CMF 71046 Series 26 should pair well with 2024’s space range

This year’s space-based range of LEGO sets should pair well with the upcoming LEGO Collectible Minifigures 71046 Series 26.

This week brought a first look at LEGO Collectible Minifigures 71046 Series 26, with the upcoming release expected to launch on May 1. A line-up of 12 space-themed characters in sealed blind boxes will be available on that date, although scannable codes on the packaging have now been confirmed, so be sure to download the Brick Search app in preparation for securing a full collection.

As well as offering up an eclectic mix of minifigures with plenty of callbacks to classic themes of yesteryear and display stands with printed stars, 71046 Series 26 should also pair quite well with 2024’s space range of sets.

So far this year we’ve seen the likes of City, Friends, DREAMZzz and Technic all heading off-world, with a range of space-based builds. Fortunately, a number of those current models could make ideal companion sets for the upcoming LEGO CMF, allowing for some interesting story and play options.

For instance, 71475 Mr. Oz’s Space Car could easily be a good fit for 71046 Series 26’s M-Tron, Ice Planet 2002 and Blacktron II minifigures, while there’s no reason to think the CMF’s modern astronaut minifigure wouldn’t go well with 42602 Space Research Rover.

Looking at the current line-up of City builds also reveals potential for working in some of 71046 Series 26’s characters, such as 60431 Space Explorer Rover and Alien Life, 60432 Command Rover and Crane Loader and 60439 Space Science Lab. The three sets could easily be combined with the LEGO CMFs mini aliens in minifigure suit, alien insectoid and classic robot, further expanding building possibilities.

You’ll be able to try out your own space-based set combinations when LEGO Collectible Minifigures 71046 Series 26 arrives online and in stores from May 1 and be sure to download the Brick Search app in advance.
