Are We To See 2018’s LEGO Creator Expert Diner (10260) Set Anytime Soon?

This month of November saw the reveal of a handful of 2018 LEGO sets: from the latest Nexo Knights, LEGO Batman Movie, and just recently the Justice League BrickHeadz. Furthermore, since the re-release of the UCS Millennium Falcon (75192) and LEGO Creator Expert Taj Mahal (10256), LEGO fans have been wondering, are we to expect a trend of re-releases among LEGO’s larger sets? Brickset has written an excellent piece of commentary on the topic that shows us how LEGO designed set re-releases in the past and how it can be the direction LEGO is planning to take today with regards to future sets.

Now that most of the major LEGO themes were already represented during these waves of reveals, people are asking, what will be the next LEGO Creator Expert Modular set? For the record, LEGO Creator modular fans are actively discussing in various forums, sharing their best guesses on what could this be, and this time the guessing game might finally be over. Other than the fact that Brickset has recently updated their database to include a LEGO Creator Expert Diner (10260), a social media user on Chinese social media platform, Weixin, posted an image of a flyer that features what seems to be next year’s modular building. Additionally, Hungarian toy shop Kockashop also listed the said modular set, but oddly enough, seems to have a different set number: 10261-Confidential – Expert 2 2018. The set is also offered at a retail price of 99,990 Forint or roughly $379.

The said post from Weixin also suggests that the said modular will fit nicely together with the Assembly Square (10255), and in a similar vein together with the Parisian Restaurant (10243) and the first ever modular, the very rare and uber expensive Café Corner (10182). As it seems, and if this is confirmed by LEGO any time soon, the LEGO Creator Expert Diner modular is not exactly a re-release but offers an alternative dining place as compared to the Parisian. I like the idea of an alternative dining area, but the modular line has been long criticized for not including any key town places such as a school, police station or perhaps an arcade/gaming area.

We will watch this closely during the next few days, where LEGO is expected to give an official announcement. What is your take on this brick fans? Do you think LEGO Creator Expert Diner will be a hit?

2018 LEGO Batman Movie Sets Revealed!

After much speculation last July on what could be included in the list of LEGO’s 2018 sets including those from the LEGO Batman Movie theme, we now have a pretty good look at the latest TLBM sets that are slated for release in January. Courtesy of The Brothers Brick, this next wave of sets from the LEGO Batman Movie includes a very nice collection of minifigures that most fans are waiting for. Other than the 2nd series of TLBM Collectible Minifigures, these sets have an awesome roster of new minifigs that will complement both Batman’s Rogue List and those from the Justice League. We don’t have a piece count, pricing and official product description just yet, but we’ll sure keep you posted once LEGO officially releases them. For the mean time, let’s enjoy these images.

The Bat-Dune Buggy (70918) 

Minifigures: Batman, Captain Boomerang

The Justice League Anniversary Party (70919)

Minifigures: El Dorado, Green Arrow, Hawkgirl, Superman, Wonder Dog

The Egghead Mech Food Fight (70920)

Minifigures: Batman, Condiment King, Egghead

Harley Quinn Cannonball Attack (70921)

Minifigures: Batgirl, Crazy Quilt, Gentleman Ghost, Harley Quinn

The Bat-Space Shuttle (70923)

Minifigures: Batman, Batman (Firestarter Suit), Batman (Space Suit), Dick Grayson, Reggae Man

For what it looks like, the Bat-Dune Buggy is perhaps the smallest build in this series, with a closer to the film rendition of Captain Boomerang as compared to how we see him in LEGO DC Comics Super Heroes Killer Croc Sewer Smash (76055). The build of the Bat-Dune Buggy is also kind of sleek and will be a good addition to the theme’s other smaller builds such as the Catwoman Catcycle Chase (70902).

It’s nice of LEGO to finally grant what most LEGO DC fans are asking for with the inclusion of a Justice League Anniversary Party set. However, I must admit that the overall build of this set is a bit of underwhelming. I’m glad that we can somehow complete our roster of JL minifigures, but the stage itself is a bit out of proportions as we see in the film – smaller than what I expected. But for all it’s worth, and especially if you’re aiming to collect all known LEGO Justice League minifigures and see all of them hanging around, then the Justice League Party (70919) is a good set to begin with. Too bad there is no Gleek minifigure, to accompany Wonder Dog.

The Egghead Mech Food Fight (70920) will probably be my personal pick. LEGO nailed it with this one, combining both the intimidating features of a battle suit and the wackiness of having fried eggs as your armaments of choice. The build of Egghead’s mech suit is reminiscent of 2007’s LEGO Exo-Force theme were LEGO explored the possibilities of creating high tech mechanical battle suits piloted by battle-ready minifigs. Since it is supposedly a food fight, take it to LEGO to throw in one of the experts in the field (pun intended): Condiment King. It was already teased several times that the dispenser-wielding baddie will be part of an official LEGO set and I’m glad that he finally did. The stud shooter is one of my favorite piece/element in any LEGO set, but I feel that it will be much better for Condiment King if he will be holding a pair of actual dispensers instead. Nevertheless, I love this set and I hope to have my hands on this one once it goes for sale in January.

Those who are looking for Gentleman Ghost will be delighted to know that he is now officially available as a minifig that comes with the Harley Quinn Cannonball Attack (70921). Not only that, but LEGO throws in another new minifigure in the character of Crazy Quilt. I have to say that LEGO did a really nice job in offering a crazy cool collection of baddies in this series.

For what it looks like, this last set in this series is the second TLBM set that offers a sort of bat suit collection, next to the earlier Batcave Break-In (70909) set. The Bat Space Shuttle (70923) not only offers a nice addition to the Dark Knight’s collection of signature vehicles such as a kayak, cart, and a space shuttle (I just couldn’t imagine why Batman will need a space shuttle in his Batcave), but we also have another collection of Batman’s outfits such as the Firestarter, Reggae Man, and the Bat Spacesuit. Know I’ve really lost count on how many LEGO batsuits are there in existence.

The 2018 LEGO Batman Movie sets are expected to hit toy stores in January next year so we can expect to see more official images and product descriptions during the next few weeks.

2018 LEGO Polybags Revealed!

If there is one thing that I am fond of collecting other than the latest collectable minifigure series from LEGO (I’m particularly looking forward to add to my collection the LEGO Batman Movie CMF Series 2), these are the latest polybag offerings that often times end up as exclusives. It’s nice of LEGO to also give some attention to this particular niche among its sets, and thanks to YouTuber Freedom Bricks, we now have an idea on what LEGO has in the works for next year’s series of polybags.

As it seems, we are to expect no less than 15 polybag sets in 2018 coming from LEGO’s various themes. Though the images are not that crisp as compared to official ones, we can have a fair amount of information on their set names and number. We don’t have a piece count yet on each of these polybags including their availability, but the pictures themselves are clear enough so we can see what they have to offer.

I personally like LEGO’s selection of City polybags, especially the Hotdog Stand and Road Worker. They are great additions to any City-style MOCs or modular sets that you might be working on. The LEGO Creator Cute Pug is also a must have, since this is the very first Creator polybag that comes like a 3-in-1 set. I’ll definitely go on a LEGO hunt for these goodies.

Here are the rest of the images as edited and shared by Promobricks.

LEGO Star Wars BrickHeadz Rey and Kylo Ren (41489) Official Images Now Available.

They were spotted in Target stores in the US last a couple of weeks along with the re-colored Sandspeeder (75204), and this time LEGO has finally unveiled its very first LEGO Star Wars The Last Jedi BrickHeadz with the official reveal of the Rey and Kylo Ren (41489) set. This limited edition Collector’s Pack is a Target store exclusive that has 249 pieces and retails for $19.99. The announcement was made via LEGO’s Facebook page as you can see below.

As mentioned by Brickset, these BrickHeadz versions of Rey and Kylo Ren may also be purchased separately as sets 41602 and 41603 respectively. If you only plan on getting only one of these Force-wielding, brick-built chibi-sized characters, then you may purchase them separately for $9.99. We’re still waiting for official images of these separate sets, and we’ll let you know as soon as we have official word of their availability. For now, if you happen to visit a Target store anytime soon, be sure to be on a look out for this limited edition, LEGO Star Wars BrickHeadz bundle.

Check out their official images below.

 

Exclusive Target LEGO Star Wars Micro Millennium Falcon Polybag Now Available – Sold Out in Some Areas.

Since the launch of this year’s Target Toy Book a few weeks ago, some leery eyed collectors were closely eyeing on a relatively, unappealing piece of promotion, or so as we thought. For a minimum purchase of any LEGO Star Wars products worth $30 and above at any Target stores starting today and throughout the whole week, entitles you to a free LEGO Star Wars Micro Millennium Falcon Polybag. Alternately, you may also opt to purchase this polybag separately for $4.99.

The polybag promo comes with 20 LEGO grey pieces including a clear bar piece and a printed minifigure stand. If not for the printed plate and bar, I guess this one will be sitting on store shelves for a long, long, time. However, what happened next is quite the contrary. We’ve received reports that the said Micro MF polybags are now sold-out in some Target stores.

Apparently, the polybag was a hit for more unconventional reasons. LEGO Star Wars minifig collectors may have struck gold with these minifigure baseplates – a good way to flaunt their prized collection. However for a price point of $5 per polybag for a single LEGO piece, I think it is too much of a haul for me.


Well, I guess even LEGO collectors have different tastes and preferences. I just hope that this poly will not suffer the same fate as that of its way larger sibling, the UCS Millennium Falcon (75192). Be sure to check out with your local Target store first if they still have the LEGO Star Wars Micro Millennium Falcon polybag (DPCI# 204-00-0266) lying around in the LEGO section. Thanks to FBTB for sharing these images.

More 2018 LEGO Star Wars Set Names and Images Surfaced.

After the reveal of the Sandspeeder (75204) and the Target limited edition LEGO Star Wars BrickHeadz Rey and Kylo (41489), we now have several images coming in that gives us a glimpse at other LEGO Star Wars sets included in this wave. Slated to be released in January next year, we have what it seems 13 new sets, 4 of which have images that are already circulating the Internet since two days ago via Reddit. Check these out.

Microfighters: Millenium Falcon (75193)

Microfighters: First Order TIE Fighter (75194)

 Tatooine Battle Pack  (75198)

 

 

 General Grievous’ Combat Speeder (75199)

 

Other LEGO Star Wars sets that are said to be a part of the January 2018 release are as follows:

Microfighters 

No mention of what minifigures are included in these sets as of this posting.

  • Ski Speeder vs. First Order Walker (75195)
  • A-Wing vs. TIE Silencer (75196)
Battle Packs

First Order Specialists Battle Pack (75197) – I assume that this set will include a selection of never before seen First Order troopers, both from The Force Awakens, and The Last Jedi not far away from what LEGO released last year with the First Order Battle Pack (75132) and First Order Transport Speeder Battle Pack (75166). Set 75197 is said to include 3 to 5 First Order Troopers.

Regular Sets

Ahch-To Island Training (75200) – if this is indeed an official LEGO set, then we might finally have an old man Luke minifigure that LEGO has been hinting on for quite some time already. Tyler also previously created a MOC around this scene, so be sure to check it out.

????? (75201) – described as a diorama looking set, I guess it has something to do with the set depicting a particular background similar to that of the Battle on Takodana (75139) and Battle on Scarif (75171) sets. 75201 is said to feature a redesigned Captain Phasma, and First Order disguised Finn and Rose. Images of these minifigures have been circulating via Instagram so its just a matter of clicks before you can find them.

Defense/Battle on Crait (75202) – similar to 75201, this set may also feature a diorama-like, outside battle scene but this time, on the crimson red sands of the planet Crait.  If our predictions are correct, then this set might include the long overdue Resistance Skimmer that we are waiting to see. Tyler made a custom LEGO Resistance Skimmer MOC a few months ago, so it’s kind of interesting to see how the official LEGO set will turn out. The set includes four minifigures: Poe Dameron, Two Resistance Soldiers, and one mystery minifig.

Buildable Figures 

We’re not sure if these are all rehash or re-releases, but most likely it could be the former.

  • Boba Fett (75533)
  • Darth Vader (75534)

We’ll keep our radar open for more LEGO Star Wars news and updates so be sure to stick around.

 

5 LEGO Sets Named as Finalists for 2018’s Toy of the Year Awards.

It has been customary for the Toy Industry Association Inc. to recognize certain toy manufacturers for their outstanding contribution to the toy industry, and LEGO is one of the industry leaders that have a legacy of being recognized time and again as a Toy of the Year (TOTY) awardee. Last year, we saw LEGO bagging not just one, but two awards with the beautiful and mechanically impressive LEGO Friends and Amusement Park Roller Coaster (41130) earning the title of Construction Toy of the Year Award, while the grand LEGO Disney Castle (71040) received the Specialty Toy of the Year.

As it seems, it looks like LEGO has earned a greater chance of bagging the same title again. Earlier this week, online voting for this year’s TOTY has officially begun, and LEGO once more dominated the nominees’ list with five sets under various categories. Nominated for Collectible of the Year, we have the LEGO Batman Movie Collectible Minifigures (71017). For Construction Toy of the Year it is everybody’s favorite droid in brick form, LEGO Star Wars BB-8 (75187) and Captain Salazar’s dreaded ghost ship, the LEGO Pirates of the Caribbean Silent Mary (71042) that has made it to the cut of being qualified as nominees. The still elusive, and hard-to-find, LEGO Star Wars UCS Millennium Falcon (75192) also made it as a nominee for Specialty Toy of the Year, and the LEGO Boost Creative Toolbox (17101) was named as a candidate for Tech Toy of the Year.

It should be noted that a LEGO-compatible product also made it to the roster of TOTY finalists with the Mayka Toy Block Tape by Zulu. The concept behind a LEGO-tape is relatively new and has recently caught the fancy of builders both young and old.

The voting process officially began last November 3, and will end on January 5, 2018. The voting will include not just Association members, retailers, and journalists, but also the consumers. The winners will be announced in a formal presentation ceremony on February 16, 2018. You may refer to this link for the complete set of guidelines on how the Toy of the Year finalists were selected. Consumer voting is on-going, and if you wish to show your support for these LEGO sets, then head over to the voting page for the Toy of the Year Awards.

Target Makes Surprise Return for Their Exclusive 2015 Minifigure Gift Set (5004077).

Retail store chain, Target has been remarkably full of surprises lately when it comes to their offering of LEGO products. Quite recently, one of their stores in Texas surprised buyers by not just stocking LEGO Star Wars sets that were supposed to come to the market only towards the end of this year, but actually selling them now.

And then, after treating customers to a glimpse of the future, Target is bringing back one of their exclusive minifigure gift packs from two years ago. If you happened to miss this then now’s the time to get it since Target is making available once again their 2015 LEGO Minifigure Gift Set (5004077) exclusive. This pack contains four minifigures, one from DC Comics and the other three from LEGO’s own themes: Ninjago, Legends of Chima, and good old LEGO City.

For its original price of $9.99, fans can get minifigures of Lightning Lad from DC’s Legion of Superheroes, Ninjago’s Kai (voiced by Michael Peña in The LEGO Ninjago Movie), Sir Fangar from Legends of Chima, and a generic diver from LEGO City. All but Lightning Lad have either helmets or accessories, though it features a dual printed minifigure head.

The 2015 LEGO Target Minifigure Gift Set making a comeback is but one of the numerous surprises that the store chain has been springing on LEGO buyers lately. Remember that they already have a bunch of other promos lined up throughout November as outlined in the LEGO section of their 2017 Toy Book catalog.

As of this writing, their current giveaway is the LEGO Seasonal Christmas Ornament (5004934), that goes for free with a minimum $35 purchase of any LEGO products at Target. This lasts up until November 11, when a new giveaway will take its place.

2018 LEGO Star Wars Sets Selling Early at Texas Target Store.

Okay, so Star Wars Episode VIII: The Last Jedi is coming into cinemas this December 15, bringing us to the halfway point of the franchise’s Disney-produced sequel trilogy. As a long-standing partner when it comes to Star Wars merchandising, LEGO has been one of the most prominent tie-in product manufacturers for this sprawling space opera.

They already have certain LEGO Star Wars sets ready to hit the market the following year. But apparently some of these hotly anticipated merchandises have already been supplied to certain retail outlets. What’s more, they appear to already be being sold well before their supposed release date.

The first reported in-store sighting of LEGO Star Wars sets slated for 2018 was in a Target store over in Texas. Not only were they already on display, with the next year still a ways off, but apparently several units of the sets have already found their way in the hands of some lucky ultra-early buyers. Though we have seen these images floating around the Internet for quite some time already, we have to wait for confirmation if this was actually sold at a local retailer and not just another leaked image.

Two sets in particular were spotted in this early-bird sighting. The first is a new LEGO Star Wars Sandspeeder (75204). Or at least it’s a new recolor, it being almost identical in form with the Snowspeeder (75049) from 2014, save for the desert color scheme and being 1 brick less!

The second set is said to be a Target-exclusive LEGO package, another two-in-one deal limited edition collector’s pack for the LEGO Star Wars BrickHeadz line, the first being the NYCC exclusive LEGO Star Wars BrickHeadz Boba Fett and Han Solo in Carbonite (41498).

We mentioned about this latest BrickHeadz set a month ago (less the image you see below), and as it turned out, the set’s availability has been confirmed. The LEGO Star Wars BrickHeadz Rey and Kylo Ren (41489) is a limited edition collector’s pack which, apparently, is only sold at Target stores.

Though this combo pack may be exclusive only to Target, you can still purchase them separately as LEGO Star Wars BrickHeadz Rey (41602) and Kylo (41603) in all LEGO Stores and elsewhere. Both Target and LEGO have yet to say anything about this occurrence.
