The Final Wave of LEGO Dimensions Has Arrived!

Now that the hype surrounding the LEGO Star Wars UCS Millennium Falcon (75192) has simmered down a bit, and that the Falcon is seemingly taking a break from the spotlight now that it is out of stock from virtually all LEGO stores and at shop.LEGO.com, let’s take a look at another wave of LEGO sets that were quietly released by LEGO during the past week.

If you are following the recent developments about the future of this last bastion of the toys-to-life genre, then the above headline will not come as much as a surprise to you. We’ve reported several months ago that Wave 9 of LEGO Dimensions is likely to be its very last, and that the whole theme is now probably slated to be cancelled. Considering all the telltale signs that appeared during the past months, we have reasons to believe that this is going to be the case.

Nevertheless, it doesn’t mean that LEGO Dimensions Wave 9 is less to be desired now that it is officially available, featuring the iconic characters of Beetlejuice, the Powerpuff Girls, Teen Titans Go! For those who are intending to add Wave 9 to their LEGO Dimensions collection, then you might be glad to hear that all of these characters are not exclusive to any retailer. It means purchasing them is relatively easy. Here’s a glimpse of these latest LD characters in action, followed by their official description and video spotlight.  As an added treat, you can complete the entire Teen Titans team by adding Robin from the LEGO Dimensions The LEGO Batman Movie: Play the Complete Movie (71264), and you can have his Teen Titans Go! version as a playable character on screen. Likewise, you can also scan Cyborg (71210) to gain access to a similar cartoon variant, completing the entire Teen Titans Go! ensemble.

LEGO Toys R Us Bricktober 2017 Minifigure Sets Official Images Now Up!

Toys R Us Germany has now released the official images of this year’s Bricktober 2017 Minifigures sets. Following the reveal of this year’s minifigure collection from TRU Austria’s promotional poster, their corresponding official images have now been released online. It gives us a better idea of what to expect from these sets which is quite frankly, one of the best that TRU offered so far.

These prized collectibles will be distributed first in Germany this month, and in the US and the rest of the world in October. There’s no official word yet on what particular weeks will these sets be released, and how to have these minifigs in the US once October kicks in, but based on previous TRU Briktober promotionals, we can assume that these minifigure sets will be given away for free with a minimum of qualifying LEGO purchase of $50 and above, exclusively at all TRU stores in the US. On the other hand, they will go on sale in Germany for 14.99€ per set and will also be given for free with a minimum LEGO purchase of 40€ and above.

Remaining LEGO Toys R Us Bricktober 2017 Minifigure Exclusives Revealed.

Yesterday, I reported on two of the four waves of limited edition, LEGO TRU Bricktober minifigures that the retail giant will exclusively release this year.  It was further revealed that these LEGO TRU Bricktober minifigure sets will be based on the LEGO Batman Movie (5004939) and LEGO City Jungle Exploration (5004940) themes, and now, thanks to the efforts of the Brick Samurai who managed to snap a photo of TRU’s promotional LEGO poster in a local store in Austria, we have an idea on what the two remaining sets are. Take a look at the image below.

As we can see from this TRU poster, the third revealed set seems to have been iterations of previously released LEGO collectible minifigures such as the Boxer from Series 5, the Hippie from Series 7, the normal human form of the Zombie Cheerleader of the Monster Minifigures Series 14, and the Sailor from Series 4. Based on this image grab, it seems that this set is listed as the 4th Bricktober minifigure set to be released within the month of the promotional.

The last (and ironically the first to be slated for release during the first week of Bricktober) is based on LEGO Ninjago Masters of Spinjutzu. Though we previously predicted that this will be lifted from the LEGO Ninjago Movie theme, the image below shows that this Bricktober set will be based on the TV series instead. Some of these minifigures are also new versions of the existing ones that we already have, including a White Nindroid (as seen in several Ninjago sets), a rather different version of Krux from Season 7 (Hands of Time), Neuro from the Season 4, and the Golden Ninja which is said to be the digital version of Golden Techno Kai. Though I’m expecting that this set will be from The LEGO Ninjago Movie, I’m not that all disappointed in this collection of Ninjago minifigs that LEGO has included in this TRU Bricktober collection. I appreciate how LEGO would tie-in these releases to correspond with their upcoming shows and programs.

Although the Austrian TRU poster indicates a release date of September for these minifigures, Bricktober in the US usually happens in October. So it seems that our European friends will certainly have an early share of these latest minifigure craze. Here’s the list or particular order of releases based on what we know from their boxes.

LEGO Ninjago Toys R Us Bricktober 2017 (5004938) – Week 1

LEGO Batman Movie Toys R Us Bricktober 2017 Minifigures (5004939) – Week 2

LEGO City Jungle Exploration Toys R Us Bricktober 2017 Minifigures (5004940) – Week 3

LEGO Toys R Us Bricktober 2017 Collectible Minifigures (5004941) – Week 4

 

Frankly, this year’s selection of Toys R Us Bricktober minifigures is far better than the bland selections that LEGO and TRU released last year, which is pretty generic. The LEGO Batman Movie series from this wave will certainly be on the top of my list, followed by the reboot of the Collectible Minifigures. How about you, brick fan, which is your personal favorite among these? Let us know in the comments below.

 

This Year’s First Waves of LEGO Toys R Us Briktober Exclusives Revealed!

For the past years, TRU has celebrated the month of October with a series of exclusive, limited edition minifigures to mark what has been dubbed as TRU’s Bricktober sales. 2016 saw four LEGO minifigure sets released by TRU per week for the whole month of October consisting of a Musicians (Week 1), Warrior (Week 2), Athletes (Week 3), and Cops and Robbers (Week 4) packs. These minifigures packs were given for free for a minimum purchase of any LEGO products worth $50 and above at all participating Toys R Us in the US and some parts of the globe.

This year, TRU is keeping the tradition alive with the latest reveal of its exclusive Bricktober minifigure sets, and this time, we now have our first images of these prized minifigs courtesy of Promobricks. These reveals covers Weeks 2 and 3 of the series, with LEGO Classic and Ninjago slated to be revealed anytime soon.

LEGO Batman Movie Toys R Us Bricktober 2017 Minifigures – Week 2 (5004939)

LEGO City Jungle Exploration Toys R Us Bricktober 2017 Minifigures – Week 3 (5004940)

As you can see, each set consists of four minifigures, and though I haven’t seen any of the LEGO Ninjago Movie and Classic Bricktober minifigures, the LEGO Batman Movie Bricktober minifigs already won my heart. All of Batman’s iterations included in this set don’t disappoint. I’m personally looking forward to that Roman Soldier Batman minifig with its cool bat-themed shield and armor/torso.

There’s no official word from TRU as of the moment, but we expect that they will be releasing a flyer of their own October LEGO calendar, similar to the one that they gave last year.

It is fair to assume that qualifying LEGO purchases required to avail these exclusive minifigs will most likely fall between $50 to $75 US dollars given their previous promotionals. We’ll give you updates as soon as it becomes available, so be sure to click on that subscribe button (the one with the bell icon) down below and stay tuned here at the Brick Show!

 

Another LEGO Star Wars Force Friday II Exclusive – The LEGO Star Wars Admiral Yularen (5002947) Minifigure.

We still have a day to go before this year’s Force Friday II is officially concluded, and with all of its announced offers and freebies, it seems that LEGO has another promotional exclusive hidden under its sleeve. We’re not really sure if this is a last minute call from the part of TLG or is just a response to the fact that the Scarif Stormtrooper (40176) minifigure polybag is already not showing at shop.LEGO.com once you check out, nevertheless, this latest minifigure promotional may prove to be attractive to the most avid collector of LEGO Star Wars minifigures.

Before the clock strikes 12 at midnight (EST) of September 3, or while supplies last, LEGO Star Wars fans (US and Canada only) with a qualifying purchase of $50 or more of any LEGO Star Wars products will receive a FREE and exclusive Admiral Yularen minifigure (5002947) as seen in Star Wars: Episode IV A New Hope. The latest promotional is now up at shop.LEGO.com, though we’re not certain until when this freebie will be up considering the expected high volume of sales brought by Force Friday II.

The 4-piece minifigure features Admiral Yularen in his Imperial Security Bureau uniform. The said minifigure is valued at $5.99, but of course, the after-market value of this exclusive may go beyond that price point depending on the relative interest of the community. Unfortunately, as I mentioned earlier, if you’re still looking forward to bag that Scarif Stormtrooper minifigure, the possibility of grabbing one as of this writing is close to nil. However, LEGO is kind enough to throw in Admiral Yularen as an exclusive freebie as an apparent replacement for its first minifig promotional.

What do you think brick fans, do you still have any last minute LEGO Force Friday II shopping plans? Are you looking to bring home this minifigure? Share us what you think in the comments below.
