A particular user via the Discord forum has shared what seems to be the latest LEGO Catalogue set to be released in the Ukraine. Now just to be clear before the LEGO cops comes crashing on our doorsteps, the LEGO December Store Calendar has specifically mentioned that LEGO fans in the US will start receiving the 2018 LEGO Catalogue beginning December 26. However it should also be noted that there are countries where LEGO opt to deliver these catalogues quite earlier, and naturally, fans may choose to share them online as well. Now with that out of the way, you may download the 2018 LEGO Catalogue right here. Of course, you may want to have your Google Translate app (or any translation app of your choice) ready if you want to have an idea on what these means from Ukrainian.
It has been customary for LEGO to release its yearly wall calendar and most fans look forward to them not just for their aesthetic appeal as a keepsake, but also for the vouchers that go along with them. Though 2017’s LEGO Wall Calendar was released around this period of time last year as announced in the December 2016 LEGO Store Calendar, it’s quite puzzling that LEGO has not made any official announcement until now on its availability in the US. However, LEGO fans in Europe were on to an early treat when LEGO Brands Stores in the region finally released their 2018 LEGO Wall Calendar as an in-store gift with purchase, with a price point of 20 Euros.
I am not really familiar with all the conventions and conferences that LEGO organizes to bolster its managerial workforce, but this piece of news, courtesy of The Brick Fan, warrants a second look. LEGO organizes a yearly conference for its LEGO Brand Retail (LBR) Managers, with this year’s event held somewhere in Atlanta. Similar to the perks of being a LEGO Store Employee which comes with a free holiday gift, LBR Managers also seem to be entitled to a freebie in the form of a super rare LEGO collectible minifigure.
LEGO has been partnering with real-life brands for so many decades that it has become old hat. Speaking of old hats, Renault Sport has been in the racing scene for four decades now, ever since Groupe Renault established it back in 1976 by combining their sports-car and competition departments at Gordini and Alpine.
This day greeted me with a much welcomed surprise with the arrival of the first official trailer of MCU’s Avengers: Infinity War. I am literally speechless as I replayed the clip several times to see all the hidden details that I might have missed, and to probably guess what LEGO has in store for a Disney Marvel film as grand as this one. Avengers: Infinity War marks the culmination of 10 years of MCU films and it is where all Marvel superhero paths converge. In case you want to see it again (such as myself) here’s Infinity War’s official trailer, which is currently trending at #1 over on YouTube.
