Bring the Wizarding World With You In LEGO Harry Potter – Now Available for Android!

With the release of Fantastic Beasts and Where To Find Them in cinemas this weekend, the wizarding world as conjured by J.K. Rowling is very much alive again – and thanks to LEGO, fans can now relive the magical experience with LEGO Dimension’s Fantastic Beasts and Where To Find Them Story Pack (71253). Check out’s Jason review of this set right here.

However, if playing through the entire movie via your gaming console seems not enough for your usual Muggle fix, then you may want to check out this offering from Warner Bros International. Somewhat like a smaller cousin of the remastered LEGO Harry Potter video game collection, WB has also launched a corresponding mobile version of the game made available for Android users. Similarly named as LEGO Harry Potter Years 1-4 and Years 5-7, avid LEGO fans of the film franchise may now bring the game with them wherever they go. Head over to Google Play Store and search for these games, or simply click on the links below directly from your mobile devices.

WATCH: Latest LEGO Disney Frozen Northern Lights Trailer.

Disney has just released its official trailer for its next series of animated shorts, LEGO Disney Frozen Northern Lights. As mentioned by the Hollywood Reporter back in June, as a spin-off from Disney’s wildly popular 2013 film, Frozen, the animated short is based on a deluxe novelization that Random House published back in July ahead of an extended collection of books. The storyline is then given the LEGO treatment and retold into four animated shorts featuring the original characters and voice cast from the movie:  Kristen Bell (Anna), Idina Menzel (Elsa), Jonathan Groff (Kristoff), and Josh Gad (Olaf). A new character, Little Rock, will also be introduced.

Here’s the official synopsis of LEGO Disney’s Frozen Northern Lights courtesy of Random House, followed by its official trailer.

Anna, Elsa, Kristoff and their friends from Disney Frozen are helping Little Rock the troll earn his tracking crystal. Join them as they embark on a mountain adventure under the Northern Lights!

LEGO Disney’s Frozen Northern Lights will air on the Disney Channel starting December 9, at 8PM.

A First Look at the LEGO Creator Blue Express Train 31054.

Those who are into collecting LEGO train sets will probably be excited about this piece of news. Thanks to Zusammengebaut, we now how have official images of yet another LEGO Creator set to be released this winter of 2017. The LEGO Creator Blue Express Train 31054 follows the wave of 2017 LEGO Creators sets that we featured earlier, and also highlights a similar 3-in-1 function following a steam locomotive design. It can be changed into two kinds of locomotive, and a caboose. The set is expected to come in at 71 pieces and it is assumed that the train rails may come in printed on the inside part of the packaging which is pretty cool if that is the case. This is one set that will surely stand out among next year’s Creator line. Though the LEGO Blue Express Train is pretty neat, the only let-down is that in order to have a complete train system you must purchase two additional sets. However, my guess is that it will not be much of a problem, because regardless of the quantity, any true-blue LEGO train set fan will not mind picking up 2 or 3 of these.

2017 LEGO Disney Sets Sport a New Box Art Design, LEGO Disney Moana’s Island Adventure 41149 Revealed.

Ahead of Disney Moana’s release this week on November 23, LEGO has revealed its next Polynesian inspired set along the previously unveiled LEGO Disney Moana’s Ocean Voyage (41150). Moana’s Island Adventure (41149) features Moana in a slightly different minidoll version which fits well in a provincial island setting, and a first look at the adorable pig Pau in its minifigure version. Additionally, what is interesting to note is that the box art of these latest LEGO Disney sets uses a neutral teal color as the Brick Fan noted. My guess is that LEGO would like to do away with the pink color scheme for its Disney sets, which has been criticized before for being gender biased. What do you think?

LEGO Technic Reveals Its Latest Jet Plane and More For 2017.

A few days back, we’ve featured the first wave of LEGO Technic sets that will debut next year, and the line-up is simply gorgeous. The Technic line has been producing the most impressive sets that we’ve seen so for the past three years, and their recent offerings don’t disappoint. We now have two additional sets that LEGO has revealed under the Technic line with the Air Race Jet (42066) and Telehandler (42061). I appreciate the slim and sleek design of the Air Race Jet that takes its cue from the newer F-35 planes which are capable of vertical take-off and landing. The Telehandler is another set that offers an alternative build.
