LEGO Marvel Superheroes Infinity War The Death of Loki (76110) Set Description Leaked!

This piece of news came in totally unexpected. We’re now just counting the days before MCU’s Avengers: Infinity War hits theaters on April 27, and with a slew of LEGO Superheroes Infinity War sets now available, the impression is that LEGO has already revealed everything that is has to offer. However, as it turned out, LEGO is still keeping something under its sleeve. From the same anonymous and reliable source that provided us with the Russian set descriptions of the LEGO Infinity War sets last November, we now have new information that shows another particular set with a lot of spoiler warnings attached to it.

The set in question has been translated roughly from Russian so as to say The Death of Loki (76110). Now that is one heck of a spoiler. According to a rough Google Translation, the set description are as follows:

Send the Hulk back into Earth using the Space Stone and alert the rest of the Avengers! Stand your ground against the Black Order and protect the Space Stone at all cost.

Have Proxima Midnight’s Supernova Spear ready for execution of the Prince of Mischief, while Odin receives his wayward son at Valhalla. What lies ahead for Loki against the might of the Black Order? His fate is for you to decide.

The set comes with the minifigures of Loki, Odin, Proxima Midnight, Corvus Glaive, Ebony Maw, and Cull Obsidian. Get this set and gather Thanos’ infamous Black Order.

Now if this is indeed confirmed, then this is one awesome set where you can get all the members of the Black Order in just one swoop. This move is unprecedented as far as LEGO is concerned, and it looks like the company’s top brass are being overly generous in offering this one. Traditionally, LEGO has opted to distribute its licensed characters across a good deal of sets in order to entice buyers to purchase almost an entire theme. But with the LEGO Marvel Superheroes Infinity War The Death of Loki (76110) set, you can easily have the entire Black Order gang, plus, a never-before-seen Odin minifigure which I suspect will be on a high demand among collectors.

Other than the huge number of collectible minifigures that goes along with this set, it seems that this latest LEGO offering is also hinting on the possible death of MCU’s most loved villain. If the Google Translation will be accepted for what it is, then we can expect that we are now seeing the last days of Loki as an MCU character.

According to our source who managed to take a peek the back of the box art as well, there is another surprising piece of info that LEGO was keeping under the lid as far as The Death of Loki (76110) has revealed – the set in itself can be combined with another yet to be disclosed set which is peculiarly among all things, entitled, Faking the Death of Loki (70401) which is a reference to that dramatic scene in Thor: Ragnarok where Matt Damon and Luke Hemsworth played the theatrical roles of Loki and Thor respectively. For what it looks like, the combined sets which features two different versions of Loki, will give a sort of a tribute to the significant contributions of Asgard’s Prince of Trickery in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

As a last note, our LEGO insider also mentions that because of certain plot points, major spoiler alerts, and the possibility of a very real lawsuit from Disney if these sets go on shelves before the expected date of the film’s release in April, The Death of Loki (76110) set will be released exactly a year from now which is on April 1, 2019.

Well, anything can happen between then and now… but for the meantime, let’s just enjoy a  wonderful Easter Sunday, and an awesome April 1st.  😉

LEGO The Incredibles Video Game Announces Its First DLC

After Warner Bros. Interactive officially announced the arrival of its Disney Pixar inspired video game, it looks like the LEGO Incredibles 2 video game will be getting its very first downloadable content (DLC) at the same time the main game is released. Those who will opt to pre-order the digital version of the game will be treated with a FREE Parr Family Vacation Character Pack DLC currently available for the Xbox, Playstation and Steam (PC). We’re still waiting for Nintendo to confirm this DLC Character Pack for the Switch as of this posting, but I’m pretty sure they will also be including this one since it is not a console exclusive.

Here’s what we know so far about the Parr Family Vacation Character Pack as described on each platform’s online store.

Pre-order now and get early access to the Parr Family Vacation Character Pack! Experience the thrilling adventures of the Parr family as they conquer crime and family life through both Disney-Pixar films The Incredibles and The Incredibles 2, in a LEGO® world full of fun and humor.

Here’s a list of all the expected characters included with this DLC as shared by The Brick Fan.

  • Bob Parr (Vacation)
  • Helen Parr (Vacation)
  • Violet Parr (Vacation)
  • Dash Parr (Vacation)
  • JackJack Parr (Vacation)
  • Lucius Best (Vacation) aka Frozone

One particular point of contention that most veteran LEGO video games aficionados have regarding Incredibles 2  is the fact that the film itself does not necessarily offer much character development, and has a very limited roster of superhero characters. Unlike its hugely successful LEGO video game cousin, LEGO Marvel Superheroes 2, this Disney Pixar sequel is seen as not really a fertile ground to spawn new characters unlike the former’s massive collection of over 200+ in-game playable character. Well the truth is, it’s kind of too early to tell if that is really the case with Incredibles 2 so I will suspend my judgment for the time being until the game is out on June 15 alongside its cinematic release.

 

LEGO Ideas TRON: Legacy (21314) Set Now Available

It’s finally here! The LEGO Ideas TRON: Legacy (21314) set is now available both in-store and online. This next LEGO Ideas set is based on Disney’s sequel to the original TRON movie released in 1982. This LEGO Ideas set comes in 230 pieces and retails for $34.99. If you’re planning to get one for you and a friend, I suggest that you make purchase in a LEGO store nearest you, since LEGO Shop@Home only limits one set per purchase which is quite a damper considering that they usually allow up to 2 purchases per set. In any case, check out this cool designer video about this set, and click here for its complete product description/press release.

If you’re eyeing on this set and you have this ticked out as a Day 1 purchase, be sure to do your purchase today if you wish to grab hold of the LEGO Seasonal Iconic Easter (5005249) minifigure set. Today marks the last day of this LEGO store promotional, and as far as LEGO Shop@Home is concerned, the Iconic Easter minifigure still appears in my online shopping bag which is a good thing, suggesting that the minifigure is still available.

A Closer Look At The LEGO Seasonal Banana Guy (5005250) Promotional Set

A view days ago, it came to our attention that LEGOLAND Billund is running a new promotional that coincides with the theme park’s 50th anniversary. So what better way to celebrate it than with the newest, coolest Banana Guy in town. Promo Bricks first spotted this latest LEGO seasonal collectible minifigure set via LEGOLAND’s promotional add, with the promise of a much closer look later on.

True to their word, Michael of Promo Bricks made a very comprehensive review of the LEGO Seasonal Banana Guy (5005250) set. The original text is written in German so be sure to have your Google Translate turned on if you’re browsing using Chrome. Here are some of closer images of this new Banana Guy minifigure courtesy of Promo Bricks. Be sure to check out their full review for a better appreciation of the set. For now, check out these images. Just click on them to have a better look.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I like how this newest iteration of one of LEGO’s most popular costumed minifig turned out, particularly the minifig’s tropical themed shirt, green pants, and flip flops. The legs are dual molded, while the torso has front and back prints which turned out nice. It comes with a single sided head print. The orange boom box accessory is also a nice addition to the set, giving this new minifig a more hip and chill out look. The box art itself further adds to that tropical feel with its festive juice bar display.

I do hope that this set lands on US shores and the rest of the globe. Thanks again to Promo Bricks for sharing these images, and be sure to stay tuned for more updates here in the Brick Show.

LEGO Incredibles 2 Mr. Incredible and Frozone BrickHeadz (41613) Spotted

It looks like LEGO is further banking its bricks with Disney Pixar’s most anticipated sequel to date. With several Juniors sets and a video game added to its roster, it seems we have another tie-in set to expect next month, and this time coming from the BrickHeadz line. Brickset shared our very first box art image of the LEGO Incredibles 2 BrickHeadz (41613) featuring the Parr family head, Mr. Incredible, and his all too cool sidekick Frozone.

According to a Brickset tipster, this set was spotted in a LEGOLAND Discovery Center where it is now made available for retail. The dual pack BrickHeadz set comes in at 160 pieces and retails for $20 very much the same as that of other two-pack sets. Other than the image above, eBay seller littledanish0714 is back with another listing that features the two-pack LEGO BrickHeadz. Here are additional images from his eBay posting, including the back portion of its box art.

I have to say that Frozone really looks cool (okay, enough with the puns) on his LEGO BrickHeadz version. I like how the white and pastel blue colors turned out on him, including the visor that accentuates Frozone’s mask. Mr. Incredible, on the other hand, features the prominent Incredibles logo printed on a 1×4 tile. The LEGO Incredibles 2 BrickHeadz (41613) set is expected to be available at all LEGO Stores and other retailers this April.

LEGO Minifigure Factory (5005358) Promotional Set Officially Revealed

The month of April is almost upon us, and that means another much awaited LEGO gift with purchase (GWP) set is almost within reach. Following the steps of the 60 Years of the LEGO Brick (40290) Commemorative Set, we now have another anniversary set which now focuses on the 40th year anniversary of the iconic LEGO minifigure. First revealed in April’s LEGO Store Calendar, the LEGO Minifigure Factory (5005358) Promotional Set underscores the careful, meticulous but fun way a LEGO minifigure comes to be. Check out these official images now uploaded via LEGO’s servers.

Now that we have these crisp, clear images, we can have a better look at what I believe is the highlight of this free set: the unique nanofigures. I’m not a particular LEGO nanofigure fan, but I have to say the level of detail shown in such a small scale is very, very impressive.

As you can see from the image above, we can expect a bunch of nanofigs from this free set, showcasing some of LEGO’s most classic themes: a Policeman, Pirate, Space Man, Nurse, and LEGO Ninjago’s female android P.I.X.A.L. Needless to say, I’m glad LEGO threw in these little guys. Of course, we also have the LEGO Designer minifigure which is pretty nice in itself with the LEGO logo emblazoned at the back of its yellow torso.

Similar to previous promotional items, the LEGO Minifigure Factory make use of its cardboard packaging as part of the set’s display. Though I would prefer an actual build for the factory, this 86-piece freebie is not something that I will gripe about. All in all, I’m sure that this next LEGO GWP is not something that collectors will casually pass. The LEGO Minifigure Factory (5005358) is slated to be available from April 1 to 15 and comes free for every single receipt purchase of any LEGO items $75 and more.

 

First Images of LEGO Star Wars UCS Y-Wing Starfighter (75181) Surfaced

I wouldn’t consider this next piece of news as coming exactly from the proverbial leaking faucet of upcoming LEGO sets, but a welcomed one nonetheless. Apparently, an eager beaver store employee somewhere in Poland is a bit too excited to put this LEGO Star Wars on display. It’s that, or he or she is probably clueless of what the set significantly means to LEGO Star Wars fans, and eventually placed it on display. From what I heard from other sites, the set was eventually removed from the shelf of the said LEGO Store. Well, someone has to do some PR damage control for that matter.

If you recall from August of last year, we mentioned a rumor that this year’s LEGO Star Wars Ultimate Collector Series will be another remake of previous UCS sets, one that is particularly from 2004. Now the recent store slip-up finally sealed all of these rumors, for it ‘semi-officially’ revealed that the next LEGO Star Wars UCS set will be the Y-Wing Starfighter (75181). These images, courtesy of RebelScum, give us a solid proof of this upcoming set.

Now I have to state the obvious that this is not yet an official reveal, and is just a slip-up since the Y-Wing Starfighter (75181) was prematurely placed on a LEGO Store shelf (albeit accidentally), so I guess showing this pre-empted reveal is still fair game. It should also be pointed out that since the set is already physically available in the store’s inventory, it is just a matter of time before the set is officially announced and displayed. I will not comment much about the set and its differences with the first Y-Wing released in 2004 since I would rather see the official images and descriptions once they are made available by LEGO. For now, my best guess is that we might get an official announcement on this new UCS sometime next week, with a release date slated on May as part of LEGO’s May the Fourth offerings.

So what do you think of this new LEGO Star Wars UCS? Do you think this is a good call to revive this iconic rebel ship? Share your thoughts in the comments below.

First Clear Image of LEGO Incredibles Game-Exclusive Edna Mode Minifigure (30615) Found on eBay

By now LEGO fans and video-gamers are well aware of the recently-announced LEGO Incredibles title, soon to be available on PC, Microsoft Xbox, Sony PS4 and the Nintendo Switch. The latest news has been the inclusion of an exclusive Edna Mode minifigure for apparently every copy of the game title.

While there’s still some discussion on whether the Edna Mode minifigure will be an exclusive in terms of the game store or the copy of LEGO Incredibles itself, we at least now have a clear image of the polybag which Edna Mode will be packaged in, with an extra surprise.

The photo of the LEGO Incredibles 2 Edna polybag (numbered 30615) was discovered in eBay, listed for sale out of Bielsk Podlaski, Poland for approximately $20.49, with limited quantities available. On the bag’s lower right corner is a code (BRAB1R) spoiling that Edna can be unlocked in-game as a character.

Apparently this eBay posting of the Edna Mode polybag (30615) must be from somebody who got a number of them early. It probably doesn’t change that the minifigure is supposed to come with every copy of the LEGO Incredibles videogame sold. We’ll stay vigilant for further developments with this item.

LEGO Incredibles Video Game Comes With An Exclusive Edna Mode Minifigure

After LEGO and Warner Bros. Interactive officially announced the release of the super powered  LEGO Incredibles video game, it turns out that it will also come with a promotional freebie in the form of an exclusive LEGO Edna Mode minifigure.

The posh stylist of the superhero Parr family will now have a minifigure of her own as revealed in WB Games UK promotional video, which was not shown towards the end of the US version. The image is not the best that we have, but we can still have a good look at E’s minifig counterpart.

I’m not sure if this will be a store or platform exclusive, especially that the UK version of the trailer seems to highlight the PS4 console with the bundled Edna Mode minifigure. I just hope that this will not be a regional or console exclusive so as to give everyone an equal footing of having this collectible. Amazon has already listed The LEGO Incredibles video game for pre-order, so you can check it out right here. Thanks to Brick Fanz for the heads-up.

 

 

Rumors Of A LEGO Star Wars The Last Jedi UCS-Style Porg Is Now Closer To Reality

Over a week ago, LEGO tipster and insider Sir von Lego of Eurobricks rocked the LEGO Star Wars boat with his tease of a soon-to-be released UCS-like set similar to BB-8, but this time, taking cue from a cute and famous creature from The Last Jedi. Fans were almost unanimous with regards to what they think the rumored set is, with the cute bird-like Porgs of the planet Ahch-To being the most likely candidate. Being a rumor for what it is, we also explored other possibilities on what this new LEGO Star Wars set could be.

However, Sir von Lego is back once more with another piece of info which seems to suggest that there might be a grain of truth for this rumor. This time, he unequivocally announced over Eurobricks forum that this next LEGO Star Wars UCS-like set is going to be, indeed, a Porg. Here’s what he has to say.

“75230 Porg will cost 69.99 EUR and will be available from October.”

Now it seems to me that Sir von Lego might have known about this possible LEGO Star Wars Porg (75230) set since last week, and opted to give out bits and pieces of teasers before giving a big reveal. Having a price point of 70 Euros, Rebel Scum also speculates that this buildable Porg may actually be not just one, but a kind of Porg nest with 2 or 3 buildable Porgs to boot. If that is the case, then this is one cool nest indeed.

Of course, all of this could be a part of an elaborate Force projection that is cast upon us, and we will not really know for sure if this is real or not until such time that LEGO comes out with an official announcement. In any case, October is still far off and we can expect plenty of related news about this, so let’s see if we can have Porgs for breakfast… I mean in LEGO bricks.
