It's like TikTok (BrickTok?) aimed at children and with careful moderation (checked by real people). You have creative control of the music and video production through triggering dances and audio effects in performances up to 60-seconds recorded in real time. These can then be trimmed down to 5, 10, 15 or 20 second shareable clips.
The song clips included come from a partnership with Universal Music Group. The building aspect of the kits focuses on creating a stage that includes the special tiles. You then scan in your creation and your beats and character appear on the screen.
The six BeatBoxes and 12 Bandmate characters in the first wave of Lego sets are:
43102 ‘Candy Pop’ in the Candy Mermaid BeatBox (Pop)
43103 ‘Pirate Punk’ in the Punk Pirate Beatbox (Punk)
43104 ‘Alien DJ’ in the Extra Terrestrial Dance Music BeatBox (ETDM)
43105 ‘Party Llama’ in the Party Llama BeatBox (Tropicon)
43106 ‘Unicorn DJ’ in the Unicorn DJ BeatBox (K-pawp)
43107 ‘Robot Break-dancer’ in the HipHop Robot BeatBox (HipHop)
43101 Bandmates: Red Panda Dancer; Cotton Candy Cheerleader; Shark Singer; Bunny Dancer; Discowboy Singer; Genie Dancer; Samurapper; DJ Cheetah; Ice Cream Saxophonist; Alien Keytarist; Banshee Singer; Werewolf Drummer
