Here’s another LEGO DK book to add to any LEGO fan’s library. Following the announcement of an updated LEGO Star Wars Visual Dictionary, DK has announced another LEGO-themed book that offers a fresh, new perspective on everything that we love about the LEGO brick. The LEGO Book New Edition explores the story of the LEGO Group and its iconic products, just in time with the patented LEGO brick’s 60th anniversary, and the 40th year of the LEGO minifigure. As an added bonus, LEGO and DK publishing is including an exclusive, printed LEGO brick that goes with the book.
After the reveal of this year’s first LEGO SDCC exclusive minifigure in the character of Sheriff Deadpool, we now our second one coming from DC Comics, or more specifically from CW’s rendition of him. Revealed via Twitter, the LEGO DC Black Lightning minifigure features the television version of the retired superhero Jefferson Pierce who has the ability to harness and manipulate electricity at will. This is the first time ever that Black Lightning is in LEGO minifigure form, though he is not the first CW character to be given the honor of having the said LEGO SDCC tribute. Starting 2015, we have the characters of Arsenal, Atom in 2016, and Vixen from last year given the SDCC exclusive LEGO treatment.
We’re roughly a week away before the curtains are pulled from this month’s next LEGO big reveal. Shrouded in mystery and enigma in the tradition of the world’s most iconic secret agent, LEGO is understandably reticent in giving out details regarding this next LEGO Creator Expert set – save for a silhouette of its corresponding box art and a teaser of its wheels. Now it looks like the secret is already out and spreading like wild fire across various social media platforms, and has been caught eventually by German motorhead AutoBILD. Though their line of interest is practically (and obviously) about cars and vehicles, it didn’t took long before the site caught attention of what seems to be a LEGO VIP invitation that glaringly displays an image of the LEGO Creator Expert Aston Martin DB5 (10262).
Just a quick reminder. If you’re eyeing on that sleek LEGO Technic Bugatti Chiron (42083), cool LEGO City Arctic Mobile Exploration Base (60195), or the latest chibi cuteness of the LEGO BrickHeadz Harry Potter & Hedwig (41615) and Ariel & Ursula (41623) perhaps now is the best time to purchase them at your nearest LEGO store, or more conveniently via shop.LEGO.com. As mentioned in the LEGO Store July 2018 Calendar, from July 9-15, every single receipt purchase worth $35 or more entitles you to a FREE LEGO Party Banana Juice Bar (5005250) minifigure.
LEGO DC Comics Super Heroes: Aquaman: Rage of Atlantis is the latest installment of the LEGO-WB Animation collaboration 3D animated film series. Unlike its cinematic counterpart, The LEGO Batman Movie, where LEGO partners with Warner Animation Group (WAG) instead, these LEGO DC superhero adventures are home-video or digital only.
