The LEGO Batman Movie 2018 Box Art Images Revealed!

Last week, LEGO finally gave us our first look at 2018’s collection of LEGO Batman Movie sets featuring a pretty nice collection of TLBM rogue minifigures and sets. Slated to be released in January, Swiss toy store World of Games has just updated its listing to include the box art images of this latest TLBM sets. We don’t have the details on each set’s piece count or costing in US dollars, but by looking at the box sizes we could probably have an idea on how big the sets will be as noted by The Brick Fan. Check out these images.

Jurassic World 2: Fallen Kingdom Trailer To Be Out Soon!

A new teaser trailer has been released online hinting on that the first complete trailer for the sequel Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom may be out soon. The teaser, released by film writer Colin Trevorrow via his Twitter page shows Chris Pratt’s Owen Grady making friends with what seems to be a juvenile dinosaur. The teaser shared by Trevorrow suggests that Fallen Kingdom’s first official trailer may also coincide with the debut of Star Wars: The Last Jedi in cinemas. Check the video clip below.

I’m not a dino expert, but I can’t help but notice that the young dinosaur in the clip bears a noticeable resemblance with Owen’s lead Raptor, Blue, in the first film. If so, it looks like will be seeing a lot Raptors again in this sequel, or it could also be a flashback of sorts. As Owen Grady explains in the previous film, it takes a lot of time and effort before earning the trust of Raptors, and these will likely begin with an imprinting of sorts from a very young age. Raptors have been, well, a main staple of Jurassic World and its predecessors. It will not come as a surprise then, if we will be seeing plenty of these agile predators in upcoming LEGO tie-in sets.

As we reported last month, we will be seeing plenty of LEGO Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom sets as early as April before the film debuts on June 22. Based on insider info, it is said that we will be seeing plenty of Raptors again on at least two of these sets. The film will also have tie-in sets under the Juniors and Duplo themes as well. Personally, though I would like to see some variety in the choices of LEGO dinosaurs in these upcoming sets, it will be nice if LEGO can throw in a baby Raptor or dino, just as we see from the above clip.

We’ll keep you posted on this, and we are very much excited how these upcoming LEGO Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom sets will turn out, so be sure to hit that Subscribe button below for the latest LEGO news updates. Thanks to Screen Rant for the heads up.

LEGO 60th Anniversary “Building Bigger Thinking” Sets Revealed for 2018.

LEGO is turning 60 years old in 2018 (reckoning from the patent date of the LEGO brick), and it’s already a sure bet that they would have some very special treats in store for when that time comes.

Back in August came the earliest hints of what LEGO plans to release in order to mark their anniversary; the answer finally comes in the form of special sets thematically called “Building Bigger Thinking.”

At first glance from the box pictures, they seem to be a motley collection of blocks and minifigures that could be assembled to form creatures, vehicles, and other brick-built figures following a theme as on the set name. The recommended age bracket gets quite the laughs too with the 5-99 range.

This information is courtesy of Hungary’s kockashop.hu and via The Brick Fan. Five sets for the “Building Bigger Thinking” anniversary sets have been confirmed thus far:

Rainbow Fun (10401)

 

Fun Future (10402)

 

World Fun (10403)

 

Ocean’s Bottom (10404)

 

Mission to Mars (10405)

 

Each of them includes a commemorative LEGO brick with “60 Years” printed on them. All in all, these sound like a great way to celebrate six decades of the most well-known toy brand in the world. Many thanks to LEGO.

New Speed Champions Sets Coming out in January 2018 from LEGO

Introduced in 2015, the LEGO Speed Champions theme seems geared to make young builders into car enthusiasts. This is due to the variety of real-world high-performance automobiles that have been translated into nifty models for the line, from Ferrari to Porsche to Bugatti. There were also awesome minifigures and play sets depicting racing elements like a drag race starting gate, pit stop and garage for starters.

Speed Champions has not been as sprawling and expansive as many other LEGO themes, but they’ve always wowed car fans with the accuracy of their automobile sets. And it looks like they’ve got a new wave of sets depicting vehicles that would be at home on shows like Top Gear.
