Remaining LEGO Toys R Us Bricktober 2017 Minifigure Exclusives Revealed.

https://player.zype.com/embed/59aef9dbd90e8c14ea00079b.html?app_key=aknKS-sRR2pKtUI6dVg9DxLWddMD3RnVUMXhGSADiDE0RNNUMzN3NRuPwYN7IUqr

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.

From Katanas to Lightsabers – LEGO September Store Calendar Highlights Ninjago and Star Wars Force Friday II.

LEGO’s September Store Calendar is now available online, and it is one super-exciting month for all Ninjago and Star Wars fans. This month celebrates the theatrical release of The LEGO Ninjago Movie with not just one, but TWO promotional polybags for the month. September also marks the much awaited return of Force Friday, aptly dubbed as this year’s Force Friday II. To sweeten the deal, LEGO brings back double VIP points for any LEGO Star Wars purchase made from September 1 to 3, PLUS a free promotional Scarif Stormtrooper (40176) minifigure. Let’s take a closer look.

September 1-3: LEGO Star Wars Force Friday II.

Earn double VIP points on all LEGO Star Wars items, and get a FREE exclusive Scarif Stormtrooper (40176) minifigure with purchase of $50 or more while supplies last. For most of us, the exclusivity of this promotional minifigure will be the main reason why we’re holding on to that next LEGO purchase until September 1.

I just hope that we will not go through that same predicament most us experienced when during last year’s Force Friday, with the exclusive Darth Revan minifigure promotional attached to it, shop.LEGO.com listed that the sought after Darth Revan minifig already ran out of stock just 4 to 6 hours after Force Friday officially kicked in. We just have to wait and see.

September 4-21: FREE The LEGO Ninjago Movie mini Green Ninja Mech Dragon (30428) for purchases of $35 or more.

TLNM offers an impressive range of promotional polybags, based mostly on its larger mech replicas such as the Green Ninja Mech Dragon (70612), Ice Tank (70616), and the rumored Quake Mech. I’m pretty sure that these polybags will be in demand in the aftermarket after their promotional period.

September 4-30: FREE exclusive The LEGO Ninjago Movie poster with a LEGO Ninjago purchase.

Other than the cool polybags, you also get to bring home a complimentary, The LEGO Ninjago Movie poster for purchase of any TLNM set, minifigure or accessory. This promo will run from September 4 to 30.

September 5 & 6: FREE VIP Monthly Mini Model Build which is a Dinosaur.

To reserve your spot, simply register for the September MMB by visiting shop.LEGO.com/Minibuild-Registration starting August 15. The LEGO MMB is meant for children ages 6 to 14, and must be completely built in store.

September 14-30: VIPs get early access to TWO exclusive sets.

We have reason to believe that one of these D2C sets is the rumored comeback of the LEGO UCS Millennium Falcon, while the other one is completely under wraps. The excitement is really intense!

September 16: VIP Ninjago Building Event.

LEGO Ninjago fans ages 6 to 14 will have a blast building this mini version of Kai’s Red Fire Mech. This event is exclusively for VIP members and registration is necessary to participate.

September 18-24: Dress Like a Ninja Week.

Put on your ninja garb and visit any LEGO store dressed up like your favorite Ninjago hero and get a free Ninjago mask while supplies last.

September 22 – October 8: FREE The LEGO Ninjago Movie Lloyd Minifigure (30609) with purchase of $50 or more.

Just in time for The LEGO Ninjago Movie’s big screen debut, we finally have information on how we can bring home one of Lloyd’s most impressive minifigure version. Found over at eBay a few days ago, we now know that the Lloyd Minifigure (30609) polybag will come as a free promotional during the said dates for any LEGO purchase of $50 and above.

 

If you can still hold on to that LEGO spending power, then now is probably time to do so. There’s a handful of pretty impressive sets that you may want to check out in September such as the colourfully detailed Ninjago City (70620) and the idyllic LEGO Ideas Old Fishing Store (21310). If you want to go massive, then be on the lookout on what LEGO has in store on September 14 and 15.

 

 

New The LEGO Ninjago Movie Lloyd Minifigure Polybag (30608) Found + Other Updates.

Much has been revealed about The LEGO Ninjago Movie during this year’s Comic-Con and just before we hit the theaters next month, it seems that LEGO still has some surprises tucked under its sleeve. Our friends over at Promobricks stumbled upon a find over at eBay and as it seems, we will not be getting one, but two minifigure polybag versions of the Green Ninja himself, Lloyd Garmadon. If you recall back in June, we first stumbled upon Lloyd’s promotional minifigure – the Kendo Lloyd (30608) polybag – as a promotional offering that comes with an unlock code to be used in the film’s accompanying video game.

As it turns out, Lloyd will probably have another minifigure promotional as images of this new polybag appears on eBay. Check out the images below.

One will notice right away that this polybag version of Lloyd sports a hood which is basically the same as that found in the film’s CMF tie-up, a tasseled sword similar to what he is wielding in the Green Ninja Mech Dragon (70612) set, and a unique, never-before-seen torso print. The torso is quite different from Lloyd’s other minifigure iteration where he is seen wearing a sweater on top of his ninja garb. This is one minifigure that will surely be interesting to collect.

In related news, Warner Bros. Interactive has shared several exciting info regarding the film’s tie-up video of the same title. We now get to see some of the combat styles and slick moves that our Ninjago heroes have acquired. They’ve also released several in-game screenshots that highlights the game’s highly-detailed and immersive environment. With styles and techniques that takes its cue from nature, these abilities are also available to players during the game.

Lastly, as of this writing, we now have confirmation that the Kendo Lloyd (30608) polybag now comes as a GameStop pre-order exclusive while supplies last.

We’re not sure if this polybag promotional is specific only to GameStop, and we hope that this will be made available to other retailers as well. The LEGO Ninjago Movie and The LEGO Ninjago Movie Video Game will both be released in the US on September 22.

FIRST LOOK: Second LEGO SDCC 2017 Exclusive Minifigure Is… Deadpool Duck?!

UPDATE: LEGO has just released official images of the exclusive SDCC 2017 Deadpool Duck. Scroll down to see the images.

***********************************************************************************************

We’re counting the hours away before SDCC 2017 opens its gate once again to the legion of Comic Con faithful. After the reveal of Legend of Tomorrow’s Vixen exclusive SDCC 2017 minifigure, now comes the second exclusive minifig in the character of the unapologetic and insanely cool comic book hybrid, Deadpool Duck!

The news was confirmed by the LEGO Group in a recent press release in relation to this year’s grandest comic book fan event. Deadpool Duck is the unholy combination of the two of the most revered, action-packed characters from Marvel Comics: Howard the Duck and of course, the Merc with a Mouth, Deadpool. Brickset has just shared our first image of the SDCC exclusive minifig which was reportedly taken by the guys from IGN.

We’re still waiting for LEGO to release the official images for this Deadpool Duck minifig, but from the looks of it, the minifigure head is definitely from the same mould as that of Donald and Daisy Duck’s collectible minifigs. The torso is accentuated with Deadpool’s signature firearms vest, while the legs are taken from a child’s minifigure colored in leather brown.

Hate them or love them, these exclusive SDCC minifigures are expected to generate a lot of interest among Comic Con fans because of their exclusivity and absurd value in the aftermarket sales. If you’re reading this and you’re at the San Diego Convention Center already, be sure to be at the Pavilion Terrace at 12:30PM for the raffle draw on Thursday, July 20 and Saturday, July 22.

What are your thoughts on this latest SDCC Deadpool Duck minifig? Let us know in the comments below.

LEGO Unveils Its First SDCC 2017 Exclusive Minifigure.

LEGO has been quite mum about this one, until now. We saw from last year that CW’s Rey Palmer (aka Atom) of DC’s Legends of Tomorrow was one of San Diego Comic Con’s exclusive swags, alongside Steve Roger’s Captain America. This time around, we have another character from Legends of Tomorrow that a few brick fans will be so fortunate enough to have. LEGO has shared via its Twitter account that Vixen will now be getting the exclusive LEGO SDCC treatment for this year’s SDCC.

For those of you who are not familiar with her character, Vixen (aka Amaya Jiwe) is a CW character and a former member of Justice Society of America played on screen by Maisie Richardson-Sellers. Hailing from Africa, Vixen is an expert in hand-to-hand combat, made even more deadly by the powerful Anansi Totem – a magically imbued necklace that allows her to summon or harness the life force of animals, giving her superhuman strength, speed, agility, and resistance to the elements.

The manner of having Vixen in her exclusive LEGO minifigure form will be basically the same as that from previous years. If you’re attending this year’s Comic Con, you must be at the Pavilion Terrace at 12:30PM and wait in line from July 20 to 23. This limited edition, SDCC exclusive minifig is expected to shoot up in value in the aftermarket for as much as $200 to $250. Even as of this writing, a couple of pre-auction listings on eBay are now posted.

If you’re unable to attend this year’s Comic Con, LEGO will still be running its usual online raffle via Twitter, so be sure to keep tabs with their social media accounts. Be sure to stay tuned with us for more LEGO SDCC updates only here at the Brick Show!

 

 

 

The LEGO Ninjago Movie Collectible Minifigures Sealed Box (71019) Now Listed for Pre-Order at Amazon France and Germany.

It seems that LEGO Ninjago fans in Germany and France will have an early start in  collecting not just all of the 20 minifigures slated under The LEGO Ninjago Movie Collectible Minifigures (71019) line, but also if they wish to share these collectibles to some friends as well. Set to be released on August 1, LEGO fans in Germany and France, may now pre-order the entire box of the said CMF series containing 60 blind bag items via retail giant Amazon.

Each box of The LEGO Ninjago Movie CMF contains exactly 3 sets of all 20 minifigures which is a good call from LEGO’s end and a delight for many fans. The minifigure box will be retailing for €219.99 and €213.52 via Amazon Germany and Amazon France respectively.

Hopefully, LEGO fans in the North America will also receive the same offer from Amazon. We’ll keep a close eye on this for the next few weeks, especially before the series’ launch on August 1. The LEGO Ninjago Movie is slated to hit theaters on September 22, with the first wave of LEGO sets scheduled to be available on August 1 as well.

Thanks to Hoth Bricks for the heads up.

 

 

 

A Look at the LEGO Ninjago Movie Collectible Minifigures Checklist and Instructions.

We already saw its box art and packaging, and this time, we have our first look at the LEGO Ninjago Movie Collectible Minifigure checklist courtesy of LEGO Quick Review.  Sightings and reports of this CMF’s availability has been making rounds on the Internet, and now we get to see its official checklist. There’s a total of 20 minifigures to collect, and the ones that I’ve set my sight on are the Jay Walker (#6) and Flashback Garmadon (#15) minifigs.

The checklist also provides some pretty exciting details on how to assemble the more complex minifigures. I find it interesting how the oriental skirt wraps around Master Wu’s minifig – quite ingenious actually.

If you’re eyeing to collect all 20, you’ll be happy to know that there are exactly 3 sets of 20 minifigs per box. You have the usual option of feeling your way through each blind bag, or just grab the entire box (if you have the cash to burn) and share the rest of it with your ninja friends. The LEGO Ninja Go Movie Collectible Minifigures will be available to the general public starting in August of this year, while the film itself is slated to hit theaters on September 22.

 

Thanks to LEGO Quick Review for sharing these images (via Promobricks).
