For most AFOLs, LEGO may have seemingly bombed at the New York Toy Fair in terms of the relatively disappointing reveals that they had over at their booth, but it doesn’t mean that LEGO news isn’t getting more and more exciting. Though LEGO has already announced or teased on the arrival of the LEGO Ideas TRON: Legacy Lightcyle (21314) sometime next month, there is still one particular set that LEGO has completely placed under wraps for a considerable time now. Though it was quite disappointing not to see the much awaited LEGO Ideas Voltron (21311) set at the NYTF, it looks like we virtually have our piece of relevant information about this upcoming set.
Frankly, I decisively stopped paying attention to news related to the availability of the LEGO Star Wars UCS Millennium Falcon (75192), mainly out of frustration. Since its launch in September last year, the volatility of its online presence, and its rapid unavailability due to high market demand, makes it’s even more exasperating. Couple it with the absurd aftermarket sales such as those posted on eBay, and it will make you feel like throwing your bricks up into the air.
UPDATE: I’ve included official images of sets 75210, 75535, and 75536, courtesy of Bouwsteentjes. The Dutch LEGO fan site mentions that these images were found on Amazon, though I couldn’t determine what particular Amazon regional site.
The LEGO Store April Calendar is now available, and it highlights two LEGO Store promotionals that fans will be eager to have. Other than the availability of the LEGO Star Wars Darth Vader Pod (5005376) now set in to stone, we now have another April promotional which pays tribute to the 40th anniversary of the LEGO Minifigure. Other than the much awaited LEGO Collectible Minifigures Series 18 that commemorates the anniversary of the iconic minifig, next month will also feature the LEGO Minifigure Factory (5005358). This next gift with purchase (GWP) set comes in at 86 pieces and will be available from April 1 to 15 or until supplies last for a minimum single receipt purchase of any LEGO products worth $75 and above.
The month of March has started, and what does it mean in LEGO-world? Why, that means their store calendar for April is now available for viewing for their loyal consumers. Now LEGO fans can plan on what April release to purchase, what offer to pick, and what events to attend.
