LEGO Ninjago Movie Ninjago City 70620 Now Available!

We saw the designer video and marvelled at its play features, and today the third biggest LEGO set ever made is now available for VIP members ahead of its general public release in September 1. The LEGO Ninjago Movie Ninjago City (70620) is now available for VIP purchase starting today, and considering the positive reviews and feedback that we see all over the internet, this is a fitting centerpiece set for the entire LEGO Ninjago Movie theme.

Unlike the notorious unavailability of another highly popular set, the LEGO Ideas NASA Apollo Saturn V (21309), I hope there will be plenty of LEGO Ninjago City sets to go around for everyone, especially when the set goes on sale for the general public. Purchasing the Ninjago City (70620) over at shop.LEGO.com also comes with a free LEGO Ninjago Movie Kai’s Dojo Pod (5004916) and LEGO Iconic Cave Set (5004936) if you’re residing in the UK. I just hope that the former will also be available in regions other than Europe.

In case you missed it, here’s the designer video once again, and other cool features of Ninjago City.

WATCH: The LEGO Ninjago Movie Ninjago City 70620 Designer Video.

Last June, we saw the unveiling of the gigantically awesome – and third largest LEGO set ever created – The LEGO Ninjago Movie Ninjago City (70620). Slated be released to the public in 1st of September, this highly detailed D2C set consists of 4,867 pieces retailing at $299.99. We already saw Ninjago City’s (70620) official images last June, and this time, LEGO has shared a designer video for this awesome set which you can see below.

The level of detail and effort given by these designers to create Ninjago City is simply insane! I love how the set is built from the ground up following a modular approach along its 3-level structure. The set itself is not just a compact version of Ninjago City as seen in the trailers of The LEGO Ninjago Movie, but it also offers a tour of the different sights, sounds and stores of the bustling city. The designer video is presented in such a way that it follows Lloyd as he travels around the city, exploring all of its nooks and crannies. There are plenty of cool details and play features that come along with this set. It even has a printed collection of a translatable Ninjago language which is fun to decode using the Ninja Language Translator.

Here’s a complete description of what to expect from The LEGO Ninjago Movie Ninjago City (70620).

Break the Spells of the Ocean with Tyler’s LEGO Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Men Tell No Tales Poseidon’s Trident MOC.

SPOILER ALERT:  If you haven’t seen POTC Dead Men Tell No Tales yet and won’t mind any major spoilers, go ahead and watch this awesome MOC from Tyler. Just don’t be upset with him, OK? So on with the show!

If you had a blast building Tyler’s previous LEGO POTC Dead Men Tell No Tales Caribbean Bank Heist MOC, then you’ll surely love this next wish set from our ace builder extraordinaire. One of the cliffhanger (or should I say a water wall hanger) scenes from the film, is when the teams of Capt. Jack Sparrow and Capt. Armando Salazar finally discovered the whereabouts of the mysterious Trident of Poseidon. With the ocean parted before them, the battle-hardened seafarers eventually go all out in their fight to possess the Trident. Tyler recreates this scene, and comes up with a very nice set that can easily pass as an official LEGO POTC set, and even better.

This latest POTC inspired creation from Tyler comes with several play features, consisting of roughly three builds. First off, we have walls of water recreated using blue translucent or transparent plates, surrounding a middle section. It’s typical of Tyler to add some cool details on these water wall builds such as the gray pieces that seems to stick out from the surface of the walls to recreate the effects of rock-like outcroppings as you see in the film (if you saw it already, that is).

The middle section of this MOC consists of a replica of the ocean floor, with several corals and aquatic fauna, and of course the fabled Trident of Poseidon. The coral section highlights Poseidon’s Trident which, if you take it out from its base, even breaks in two to break all the spells that binds the ocean.

There are also spots in the coral section where you can put the minifigure versions of Capt. Jack Sparrow and Capt. Armando Salazar as they battle it out to take possession of the Trident.

Tyler didn’t shy away from adding several details on the water wall such as a couple of sea weed elements, barnacles using 1×1 round plates, and the rock formations on the sides where you can even place a minifigure on top of it. The right side of the water wall also highlights plenty of play features such as a transparent Technic beam that suspends an anchor holding the minifig versions of Capt. Barbossa and Carina. I guess I will not say that much about the reason why they’re up there in the first place since it’s one of the film’s major story plots.

Here’s Tyler for more about our next LEGO POTC wish set.

If you like this latest brick-built creation from Tyler and would like to give it a try, then you’ll be glad to know that you can also build one of your own by simply heading over at BuildBetterBricks.com and over at eBay. For a minimal fee of just $3 (which also supports Tyler’s future MOCs and other insanely cool custom builds), you’ll get the full building instructions in PDF format, a Bricklink parts list, and a Stud.io file that allows you to easily export the parts list over at Bricklink.

So what do you think about this latest creation from Tyler? Let us know what you think in the comments section below or simply head over on our Facebook page and join the discussion.

 

 

 

Latest Images from Star Wars Episode VIII: The Last Jedi Released.

This piece of news is not entirely about LEGO, but knowing how the LEGO and Star Wars community are all set for the biggest movie of the year, then this is something that will definitely suit our fancy. Entertainment Weekly has just released a collection of new images from Star Wars: The Last Jedi that highlights some of the lead characters of the film, including a closer look at the latest Star Wars creatures to debut on the big screen once the movie lands in theaters on December 15.

These character images highlight Rey, Finn, Poe, Kylo Ren and some never-before-seen critters from the galaxy far away. Check these out.

Rey is seen here probably at the start, or during her training at the Jedi temple ruins of planet Ahch-To, home to the self-exiled Jedi Master, Luke Skywalker. In case you missed it, Tyler created a LEGO Star Wars TLJ MOC that perfectly captures Rey’s training as Luke teaches her the ways of the Force.

Finn is on board on a Resistance Ski Speeder on what seems to be the planet Crait. Based on The Last Jedi’s initial trailer, we saw several of these Speeders as they charge their way towards a confrontation with the First Order’s mammoth Heavy Assault Walkers. These Speeders (or Skimmers) were also perfectly recreated by Tyler which you can see here.

Poe is getting ready for another space dogfight as seen here in this image aboard his X-Wing fighter.

Love him or hate him, Kylo Ren is definitely one of Star Wars most powerful characters – not just in terms of his affinity with the Dark Side of the Force, but also the despicable things that he has done. On a side note, it is interesting to see how this scarred image of Kylo Ren will render in LEGO minifigure form. We just have to wait and see until Force Friday arrives.

Star Wars never seem to run out of elite body guards and specialized warriors – and the film’s main antagonist, Supreme Leader Snoke, is not someone who will settle for anything less. We saw these guys already in their LEGO buildable character form (which we have to remove from the site eventually at the request of LEGO) and now we see them in their actual screen versions. Like any other elite units, these Praetorian Guards are tasked to protect Snoke at all means necessary, and the crimson red color just makes them more deadly serious about doing their task.

We also have a closer look at some other stills released by EW, which includes Kylo Ren’s TIE Striker, the plush, intergalactic casino at Canto Blight, and some particularly interesting critters – the Porg and the amphibious-looking Caretakers. It will be interesting to see if ever LEGO has them on the works as an actual set or as a part of its minifigure series.

So what do you think? What LEGO Star Wars The Last Jedi sets are you looking forward to? Let us know in the comments below. Thanks to EW for these images.

 

 

 

Very First LEGO Star Wars The Last Jedi Polybag – First Order Heavy Assault Walker 30497 – Spotted at a Local Retailer.

We’re still a few weeks away from Force Friday’s Star Wars’ bazaar, but it seems some local retailers are trickling away some LEGO Star Wars goodies.  A couple of days ago, we also reported how some online retailers managed to pull the veil off from the latest line of LEGO Star Wars The Last Jedi sets, only to have TLG put it back again. This time around, another retailer decides to just throw things up in the air, and to put on display our very first LEGO Star Wars TLJ polybag set.

Brickset shares several images of what seems to be a miniaturized version of one of the LEGO Star Wars First Order Heavy Assault Walker (30497) polybag, reportedly found on display and for sale at a local Wal-Mart store in Ontario, Canada.  The polybag set comes in 54 pieces and was put on sale for $4.86. The funny thing is that its official store tag reads “Confidential SW Movie”, so I guess whoever puts them there on display at the store rack doesn’t really bother about such things.

Elsewhere, there have also been reports of several Star Wars toys and merchandise that have been displayed in some local US stores. If you look hard enough, perhaps you may manage to find some of these LEGO Star Wars TLJ boxed sets any time soon, especially considering that we’re now roughly three weeks away  before Force Friday officially kicks in. On a personal note, I appreciate the polybag trend, especially the ones that our mini replicas of the larger sets, such as those from The LEGO Ninjago Movie polybag line. Keep an eye out on these little goodies and please do let us know if you spot one at your local retailer. Thanks once again to Brickset for sharing these images.

 

Blocks Magazine Joins the Star Wars 40th Anniversary Celebration with a LEGO Building Contest.

Last year, LEGO Star Wars fans were treated to a free and very rare freebie as part of May 2016’s May the 4th exclusive promos. With only 3,500 sets in circulation, the LEGO Star Wars Escape the Space Slug set were given away for free for every qualifying purchase of any LEGO Star Wars merchandise worth $150 and above. To make it even more challenging, the chance to own this set comes by invitation only via email, with only around 25 invitations released for each 120 LEGO brand stores worldwide during that time.

If you’re a LEGO Star Wars connoisseur and you’ve missed out on having this very rare set, it might interest you to know that Blocks Magazine is a running contest that might give you a better chance of having this set for free by entering a MOC building contest. In celebration of Star Wars 40th anniversary, Blocks Magazine will be running a building contest that highlights one of the most memorable scenes in the very first SW film, Episode I: A New Hope. Based on the epic confrontation between Han Solo and Greedo in Mos Eisley Cantina, participants are to create their very own brick-build rendition of this iconic scene, featuring the above mentioned characters. It might be a bit of a challenge if you’re looking forward to include Greedo in his minifigure form since he only appears in two LEGO Star Wars sets: 2004’s Mos Eisley Cantina (4501) and the larger remake from 2014, Mos Eisley Cantina (75052). But of course, this is LEGO, and you are highly encouraged to be creative in coming up with your very own interpretation of this scene.

Here’s Blocks Magazine full press release.

Blocks magazine offers amazing prizes in Star Wars at 40 build contest

It will probably not have escaped your attention that a little movie called Star Wars, released in 1977, celebrates its 40th anniversary in 2017. Blocks will be celebrating with a very special Star Wars issue later this year, and we want our readers to get involved.

We are holding a unique competition, with not one, but two amazing prizes on offer. The overall winning entry will have the one-of-a-kind opportunity to be part of Blocks’ Star Wars at 40 special feature – your entry could be included in a huge article that the team are putting together. Additionally, the winner and two runners-up will each receive the prize of a super rare, limited edition LEGO Star Wars set – Escape the Space Slug. It was only available as part of a select LEGO Store shopping opportunity last year.

To be in with a chance of being immortalised in the pages of Blocks and picking up a copy of an impossible-to-find LEGO Star Wars set, entrants need to build a specific scene from Star Wars: A New Hope, using LEGO. It can be built at any scale and be open to interpretation, but it also needs to represent Blocks’ chosen scene from the original film in a recognisable way – this is all about recreating the selected scene from the movie, using LEGO as your medium. The judging panel will be looking at how it represents the scene, not just the best MOC, so presentation and concept will be important alongside technical ability.

The scene from Star Wars: A New Hope that Blocks wants you to recreate in LEGO is ‘Han shot first’. It’s the moment when Han Solo encounters Greedo in the cantina at Mos Eisley, and events take a particular turn…

To enter, post an image of your build to Facebook (blocksmag), on Twitter @blocksmagazine or via e-mail it to graham@blocksmag.com. The deadline is midnight on September 1, 2017 (GMT). Your image must be at a resolution of 300dpi and fit the landscape dimensions of 330mm wide x 330mm tall.

Full terms and conditions can be found at www.blocksmag.com.  Keep your navicomputer targeting Blocks’ social media channels for build tips from our experts.

New The LEGO Ninjago Movie Character and Vehicles Posters Revealed!

We’re roughly a month away before The LEGO Ninjago Movie hits the big screen, and we can expect LEGO and Warner Bros. to throw in more promotional materials and swag down the road leading to the film’s debut on September 22. Following the first wave of character posters that show our heroes in tune to their elemental affinities, IGN has just shared several new character posters of our LEGO Ninjago heroes this time, alongside their signature vehicles. All of these vehicles have already been translated into their respective LEGO sets, though a bit scaled down as compared to their movie counterparts.

These posters include Lloyd and his Green Ninja Mech Dragon (70612), together with the rest of the Ninjago team and their battle-ready vehicles: Kai with his Fire Mech (70615), Jay and his Lightning Jet (70614), Cole and his Quake Mech (which we’re hoping to have an official LEGO set later on), Zane’s Ice Tank (70616), Nya and her Water Strider (70611), and Master Wu together with the elegant Destiny’s Bounty (70618). The film’s antagonist also gets his own poster, with Garmadon standing proudly with his ominous Garma Mecha Man (70613). No word yet if these posters will actually have their physical counterparts (perhaps a LEGO Store promotional?), but if they do, these are pretty cool to collect. Check these out.

 

The LEGO Ninjago Movie is slated to hit US theaters on September 22. Thanks to IGN for sharing these images.

 

 

Something BIG is Coming In September – And We’re Now Getting Closer to What It Is.

We’re still a month away before this year’s much awaited Force Friday II, but bits and pieces of information are now gradually making its way online about this year’s largest Star Wars sales event. LEGO is prepped up and ready to go for all things Star Wars once September 1 breaks the light of day, particularly, with its latest offering of LEGO Star Wars sets based on Episode VIII: The Last Jedi. Images of these sets are already out in the open, thanks to several online retailers who posted it ahead of its official reveal date.

Much of the speculation that revolves around this theme centers on the highly circulated news (or rumor if you prefer it that way) that massive LEGO Star Wars UCS Millennium Falcon is slated to return this September. The Internet is certainly rife with this piece of news, with so many LEGO Star Wars fans clamoring for the UCS set’s return. Since the news (or rumor) broke out, there was no solid proof to back up the claim, with only pieces of ‘circumstantial’ evidences that seem to point to the massive set’s return. However, a recent teaser given by prolific LEGO Star Wars set designer Hans Burkhard Schlömer, has set ablaze the LEGO landscape once again with him hinting on a much, much, much, much, much, much larger set to be revealed on September 1st. This is the first clue that gave rise to another wave of speculations that we are indeed closer to the famed brick-built starship that made the Kessel Run in less than 12 parsecs.

This time, I can just imagine how jaw-dropping the next teaser was since this time, LEGO finally speaks out about this very much (6x) larger set. Posted on its official Twitter account, LEGO teased on the arrival of a humongous set, almost 5x larger than its recently released LEGO Creator Expert London Bus (10258).

Riding the waves of further speculation, several fans used their ‘investigative’ skills in prying open this mystery that LEGO has thrown in. Some even tweaked the above photo to ‘reveal’ how the Falcon’s box art is hidden under the wrappings. I’m not really sure if such photo enhancements are reliable but one thing is for sure: LEGO promises more reveals during the next few days especially that we’re closer to next month’s Force Friday II sales.

What’s your take on this Brick Fans? Is this the Falcon that we all so want to see? Let us know in the comments below, or share us a thought or two over at our Facebook page.

 

 

 

From Katanas to Lightsabers – LEGO September Store Calendar Highlights Ninjago and Star Wars Force Friday II.

LEGO’s September Store Calendar is now available online, and it is one super-exciting month for all Ninjago and Star Wars fans. This month celebrates the theatrical release of The LEGO Ninjago Movie with not just one, but TWO promotional polybags for the month. September also marks the much awaited return of Force Friday, aptly dubbed as this year’s Force Friday II. To sweeten the deal, LEGO brings back double VIP points for any LEGO Star Wars purchase made from September 1 to 3, PLUS a free promotional Scarif Stormtrooper (40176) minifigure. Let’s take a closer look.

September 1-3: LEGO Star Wars Force Friday II.

Earn double VIP points on all LEGO Star Wars items, and get a FREE exclusive Scarif Stormtrooper (40176) minifigure with purchase of $50 or more while supplies last. For most of us, the exclusivity of this promotional minifigure will be the main reason why we’re holding on to that next LEGO purchase until September 1.

I just hope that we will not go through that same predicament most us experienced when during last year’s Force Friday, with the exclusive Darth Revan minifigure promotional attached to it, shop.LEGO.com listed that the sought after Darth Revan minifig already ran out of stock just 4 to 6 hours after Force Friday officially kicked in. We just have to wait and see.

September 4-21: FREE The LEGO Ninjago Movie mini Green Ninja Mech Dragon (30428) for purchases of $35 or more.

TLNM offers an impressive range of promotional polybags, based mostly on its larger mech replicas such as the Green Ninja Mech Dragon (70612), Ice Tank (70616), and the rumored Quake Mech. I’m pretty sure that these polybags will be in demand in the aftermarket after their promotional period.

September 4-30: FREE exclusive The LEGO Ninjago Movie poster with a LEGO Ninjago purchase.

Other than the cool polybags, you also get to bring home a complimentary, The LEGO Ninjago Movie poster for purchase of any TLNM set, minifigure or accessory. This promo will run from September 4 to 30.

September 5 & 6: FREE VIP Monthly Mini Model Build which is a Dinosaur.

To reserve your spot, simply register for the September MMB by visiting shop.LEGO.com/Minibuild-Registration starting August 15. The LEGO MMB is meant for children ages 6 to 14, and must be completely built in store.

September 14-30: VIPs get early access to TWO exclusive sets.

We have reason to believe that one of these D2C sets is the rumored comeback of the LEGO UCS Millennium Falcon, while the other one is completely under wraps. The excitement is really intense!

September 16: VIP Ninjago Building Event.

LEGO Ninjago fans ages 6 to 14 will have a blast building this mini version of Kai’s Red Fire Mech. This event is exclusively for VIP members and registration is necessary to participate.

September 18-24: Dress Like a Ninja Week.

Put on your ninja garb and visit any LEGO store dressed up like your favorite Ninjago hero and get a free Ninjago mask while supplies last.

September 22 – October 8: FREE The LEGO Ninjago Movie Lloyd Minifigure (30609) with purchase of $50 or more.

Just in time for The LEGO Ninjago Movie’s big screen debut, we finally have information on how we can bring home one of Lloyd’s most impressive minifigure version. Found over at eBay a few days ago, we now know that the Lloyd Minifigure (30609) polybag will come as a free promotional during the said dates for any LEGO purchase of $50 and above.

 

If you can still hold on to that LEGO spending power, then now is probably time to do so. There’s a handful of pretty impressive sets that you may want to check out in September such as the colourfully detailed Ninjago City (70620) and the idyllic LEGO Ideas Old Fishing Store (21310). If you want to go massive, then be on the lookout on what LEGO has in store on September 14 and 15.

 

 

New The LEGO Ninjago Movie Lloyd Minifigure Polybag (30609) Found + Other Updates.

Much has been revealed about The LEGO Ninjago Movie during this year’s Comic-Con and just before we hit the theaters next month, it seems that LEGO still has some surprises tucked under its sleeve. Our friends over at Promobricks stumbled upon a find over at eBay and as it seems, we will not be getting one, but two minifigure polybag versions of the Green Ninja himself, Lloyd Garmadon. If you recall back in June, we first stumbled upon Lloyd’s promotional minifigure – the Kendo Lloyd (30608) polybag – as a promotional offering that comes with an unlock code to be used in the film’s accompanying video game.

As it turns out, Lloyd will probably have another minifigure promotional as images of this new polybag appears on eBay. Check out the images below.

One will notice right away that this polybag version of Lloyd sports a hood which is basically the same as that found in the film’s CMF tie-up, a tasseled sword similar to what he is wielding in the Green Ninja Mech Dragon (70612) set, and a unique, never-before-seen torso print. The torso is quite different from Lloyd’s other minifigure iteration where he is seen wearing a sweater on top of his ninja garb. This is one minifigure that will surely be interesting to collect.

In related news, Warner Bros. Interactive has shared several exciting info regarding the film’s tie-up video of the same title. We now get to see some of the combat styles and slick moves that our Ninjago heroes have acquired. They’ve also released several in-game screenshots that highlights the game’s highly-detailed and immersive environment. With styles and techniques that takes its cue from nature, these abilities are also available to players during the game.

Lastly, as of this writing, we now have confirmation that the Kendo Lloyd (30608) polybag now comes as a GameStop pre-order exclusive while supplies last.

We’re not sure if this polybag promotional is specific only to GameStop, and we hope that this will be made available to other retailers as well. The LEGO Ninjago Movie and The LEGO Ninjago Movie Video Game will both be released in the US on September 22.

Official LEGO Star Wars The Last Jedi Set Images Starting to Appear at Some Online Toy Stores.

Hi there Brick Fans! I’ve been out for quite some time due to a very nasty Internet problem from my end, and I’m just glad that my internet service is now back! So what’s a LEGO fan boy do after being cutoff from online civilization for quite some time? Hitting away at the keyboard of course, looking at things that I missed recently, and what is currently happening on the LEGO landscape. Lo and behold, it seems that there is a ton of new brick info that is running all over the Internet, and this particular one happens to be hailing from a galaxy far, far away.

Earlier last month, I posted an article in which we had a glimpse, though a bit blurry, of the latest LEGO Star Wars set to debut just in time for Force Friday in September. However, since we understand that LEGO is privy about these matters, we decided to remove these images even if they were almost unrecognizable. But as they say, the cat is out of the bag already and it seems that some online retailers have already listed these sets for pre-order, including the sets’ official images and product descriptions. Now, we’re walking on a slippery slope here, but since this is from an independent, third-party retailer and not from any illegitimate source (aka leaks), I guess it becomes somewhat official.

So here we go. Credit goes to Polish online toy retailer, Planetaklockow for sharing these images. What is also interesting about their listing is that they managed to include a Polish translation of the sets’ official product description. If you prefer, you can also do a rough Google translation of what these descriptions say. However, bear in mind that this may actually be more confusing considering how this kind of translation works.

UPDATE: It looks like Planetaklockow eventually removed their listing for these sets. Oh well…

UPDATE 2: Since the initial publication of these images came from a third-party retailer whom mistakenly listed these on their site ahead of LEGO’s official press statement, LEGO asked us to remove these images from our site as well.

New LEGO Marvel Superheroes 2 SDCC Trailer Reveals Kang the Conqueror!

SDCC 2017 has been concluded, but the reveals that LEGO shared with fans and attendees still lingers on. I intend to do a recap any time soon about all the things related to LEGO during this year’s San Diego Comic Con, to somehow round-up all these things, and to make sense out of the information overload.

But before that, here’s another tidbit of info that Warner Bros. Interactive and TT Games have shared during Comic-Con. We already had a look at some of the new Marvel superheroes that will be added to the game’s roster of more than 200+ playable characters. This time, we now have our second official trailer of the LEGO Marvel Superheroes 2 video game that puts the spotlight on the game’s main antagonist, Kang the Conqueror. We also get a closer look at the different Marvel worlds as Kang brings them all together in an epic collision of inter-dimensional proportions in the surreal world of Chronopolis.

If the first trailer of LMSH2 introduces us to some of the characters that will grace the long-awaited sequel, this follow-up shows us more about Kang and the time-warping, open-hub world of Chronopolis. In this uber extreme mashup of Marvel worlds, we get to see familiar places such as Ancient Egypt, New York City 2099, Wakanda, Xandar, Knowhere, and many other comic book locations.

Here’s the official press release of the latest LEGO Marvel Superheroes 2 trailer released as a fitting conclusion for this year’s SDCC.

Interactive Entertainment today released a NEW trailer for LEGO® Marvel Super Heroes 2 featuring Kang the Conqueror, a time-travelling Super Villain who has stolen numerous cities from across time and space to form the expansive Open Hub World of Chronopolis.

At Comic-Con, TT Games also revealed a brand new character created in tandem with Marvel Games, fusing together the ever popular Carnage and Venom to form a new Marvel Super Villain called Carnom, a character who has never existed in the Marvel Universe before and is completely unique to LEGO Marvel Super Heroes 2. Along with Carnom, TT Games announced a slew of other characters coming to the game, including Howard the Duck and his Iron Duck variant, who will be voiced by Kinda Funny’s Greg Miller, Gwenpool, the fan-favorite amalgam of Gwen Stacy and Deadpool, Vulture, from the “Spider-Man: Homecoming” film, Cosmo the Spacedog,Doctor OctopusForbush ManGreenskyn Smashtroll and Throg.
