Coming from its successful “Build Your Own LEGO Ideas Logo” contest, the LEGO Ideas Team is back and this time, in search of the first ever, community-inspired, LEGO exclusive Gift With Purchase (GWP) set. It seems that LEGO has finally considered the idea of a fan-designed LEGO GWP ever since the idea was discussed extensively across LEGO fan forums. The announcement has been made over at the LEGO Ideas website, and will eventually follow a classic space theme.
Last week we talked about the upcoming LEGO Ninjago Days special event happening over at LEGOLAND California starting this coming Friday, January 12. It will even premiere a brand new 4D movie, LEGO Ninjago: Master of the 4th Dimension, while the Ninjago Days festivities will last all through the weekend.
If The LEGO Ninjago Movie from the year before hasn’t quite sated your appetite for more adventures of Lloyd Garmadon and friends, then you might want to consider planning a trip to LEGOLAND California. If 4D films are something you dig, then they’ve got a new LEGO Ninjago one coming.
It’s never been too early to plan for tomorrow, or the next month. Just as LEGO kicked off their 2018 Store Calendar last December of the recently-concluded year of 2017, so now in January of 2018 their schedule of LEGO store activities for February has just been put up online.
While some of the first wave of 2018 LEGO Technic sets is still expected to be out on January 1, it looks like we’re getting more information on what to expect from the LEGO Technic theme this Summer, 2018. Planned to be officially revealed during the New York Toy Fair in February, some preliminary images of these sets have found their way online. As always, we’re playing on the safe side by not revealing the proper images right here, but I will provide you with the set’s title and my first impression on these sets. I’m not really much of a Technic fan, but being a long standing LEGO theme for decades, I am very much impressed about its complexity and STEM-based designs.
