Earlier this week, we reported on the possibility that LEGO Harry Potter fans might be getting their hands busy anytime soon. Rumor has been circulating around lately among LEGO fan forums that the new LEGO Harry Potter sets will have an earlier release date. It was said that these much-awaited LEGO HP sets will be available as early as July instead of August. Now the rumor can finally be placed to rest since shop.LEGO.com has made it official that the new LEGO Wizarding World Harry Potter sets will be available beginning July 1. LEGO Shop@Home even updated its site by adding several new images and their respective official product descriptions on some of these sets.
Following yesterday’s reveal of LEGO’s SDCC 2018 exclusive, Millennium Falcon Cockpit (75512), we now have a second San Diego Comic Con exclusive LEGO set that pays tribute to DC’s Aquaman. This version of the hailed King of Atlantis and Justice League member is based on the classic comic book character which sees him riding together with his faithful seahorse companion, Storm. The LEGO DC Superheroes Aquaman and Storm (75996) comes in 197 pieces that features 4 smaller builds, and an Aquaman minifigure. Same as yesterday’s reveal, this particular set does not contain any special parts or printed pieces. You may even try to build one on your own just by ordering the parts needed over at Bricklink. Furthermore, the Aquaman minifigure is the same as that found on earlier sets like 2013’s Arctic Batman vs Mr. Freeze: Aquaman on Ice (76000), except for the different choice of hairpiece. What convention attendees may find attractive though, is its uniquely designed box packaging which comes with an old-school, classic VHS-type look.
Some LEGO MOCs are just so grand, so elaborate, and so epic in scale that they literally take years in order to be completed. A LEGO Convention happening next weekend in Madison will soon play host to one of the most ambitious building MOCs yet, a famous Wisconsin sports venue.
LEGO-related news of the 2018 San Diego Comic Con keeps pouring in these days. We just covered some exclusive LEGO Star Wars stuff in the Millennium Falcon Cockpit (75512), and now we have news of a possible addition to the various LEGO releases for the event, based on DC Comics.
LEGO has finally lifted the lid off its much awaited San Diego Comic Con 2018 exclusive. Announced via LEGO’s Facebook page, the LEGO Star Wars Millennium Falcon Cockpit (75512) comes in at 203 pieces and features a cut-out portion of the Falcon’s cockpit, with the minifigure versions of Han Solo and Chewbacca on board.
