More LEGO Nexo Knights Sets Slated in 2018.

It seems that the LEGO Nexo Knights has gained some steam. In spite of being relatively quiet during the past months without any recent announcements of new sets, and its rumored cancellation due to its underwhelming market share, it seems that LEGO is not willing to drop the curtain yet for this relatively young theme.

Brick Fanz was quick to take notice of the tease in the latest issue of the LEGO Life Magazine, which confirms that the LEGO Nexo Knights will not be cancelled, but in fact, will be having a string of new sets based on a sinister, ancient enemy.  If you recall, since the theme’s launch in 2016, the heroes of Knighton has battled  against the quick-tempered Lava Army, together with Jestro and his infamous Book of Monsters, and this year against Monstrox and his Stone Army. The Lava Army together with some of the Nexo Knights are all predominantly colored red, while Monstrox and the Stone Army are rendered in purple.

For 2018 however, a new foe now looms over the horizon with the ability to seemingly influence our heroes and manipulate their thoughts and emotions. We have little information about this new foe which has been coined as the Tech Infection, except for the fact they are probably luminous green in color.

If ever the Tech Infection sets’ color schemes will be near to that translucent green color as seen from the image above, then I can just imagine a whole lot of potential sets that may take its cue from the early 90s’ Blacktron 2 and 2015’s Ultra Agents. Brickset has also updated its database to include placeholders for 6 sets under Season 5 of the Nexo Knights’ line-up. Design wise, the Tech Infection subtheme has the potential of becoming the best Nexo Knights sets.

What do you think brick fans, are you glad about this latest subtheme addition to the Nexo Knights? Let us know in the comments below.

A Look at the Latest LEGO Ninjago Movie Posters.

We’re just counting the days before we tap on that inner ninja, and swing our way into theaters to see The LEGO Ninjago Movie. Promotions are also revving up via social media prior to the film’s US screening on September 22, particularly with the release of a new batch of pretty interesting TLNM posters. Since a couple of months ago, Warner Bros have released a series of new posters, including our ninjas alongside their mechs, and elemental affinity. This time around, we have not one but as it seems, two new series of posters that highlight our ninja heroes and their respective voice actors (and actress).

Courtesy of Fandango, this series offers a closer look at our main characters amidst their elemental backdrops.









Though it seems that this next series is incomplete, I hope LEGO and Warner Bros still has plenty of these posters in the works. As of the moment, we only have the character posters of Lloyd, Naya and Sensei Wu beautifully rendered in Japanese-inspired, woodblock-type, prints. Among these series, I personally prefer this one.



If you wish to get updates on what’s new about The LEGO Ninjago Movie ahead of its September 22 theatrical release, be sure to follow our ninjas via social media, or you can also subscribe to our site to get instant notifications about TLNM and other LEGO-related news.

More LEGO Marvel Superheroes 2 Characters Announced.

A couple of days ago, TT Games and Warner Bros. Interactive made waves at Europe’s largest gaming event, Gamescon 2017, with the announcement of additional playable superheroes and villains that will be added to the roster of LEGO Marvel Superheroes 2 characters once the game is released on November 14 (US).

During the said gaming event, several playable characters were revealed, including Old West Iron Man, Maestro, and Vormund just to name a few. This time, LEGO showcases these characters via social media, together with other additional superheroes and villains that players can unlock during the course of the game. Included in the roster is Hela from Thor: Ragnarok, Silk from the Spider-Verse storyline, and Iron Fist.

Iron Fist
Hela
Silk
Old West Iron Man
Old West Tony Stark
Maestro
Vormund

LEGO Marvel Superheroes 2 scheduled to be released in the US on November 14, and November 17 in Europe. It is available for all major gaming platforms including the Xbox One, Playstation 4, Steam (PC) and Nintendo Switch. It comes with a Deluxe Edition that grants you early access to the Classic GOTG Character Pack, Season Pass, and an exclusive Giant-Man minifigure.

Remaining LEGO Toys R Us Bricktober 2017 Minifigure Exclusives Revealed.

https://player.zype.com/embed/59aef9dbd90e8c14ea00079b.html?app_key=aknKS-sRR2pKtUI6dVg9DxLWddMD3RnVUMXhGSADiDE0RNNUMzN3NRuPwYN7IUqr

Yesterday, I reported on two of the four waves of limited edition, LEGO TRU Bricktober minifigures that the retail giant will exclusively release this year.  It was further revealed that these LEGO TRU Bricktober minifigure sets will be based on the LEGO Batman Movie (5004939) and LEGO City Jungle Exploration (5004940) themes, and now, thanks to the efforts of the Brick Samurai who managed to snap a photo of TRU’s promotional LEGO poster in a local store in Austria, we have an idea on what the two remaining sets are. Take a look at the image below.

As we can see from this TRU poster, the third revealed set seems to have been iterations of previously released LEGO collectible minifigures such as the Boxer from Series 5, the Hippie from Series 7, the normal human form of the Zombie Cheerleader of the Monster Minifigures Series 14, and the Sailor from Series 4. Based on this image grab, it seems that this set is listed as the 4th Bricktober minifigure set to be released within the month of the promotional.

The last (and ironically the first to be slated for release during the first week of Bricktober) is based on LEGO Ninjago Masters of Spinjutzu. Though we previously predicted that this will be lifted from the LEGO Ninjago Movie theme, the image below shows that this Bricktober set will be based on the TV series instead. Some of these minifigures are also new versions of the existing ones that we already have, including a White Nindroid (as seen in several Ninjago sets), a rather different version of Krux from Season 7 (Hands of Time), Neuro from the Season 4, and the Golden Ninja which is said to be the digital version of Golden Techno Kai. Though I’m expecting that this set will be from The LEGO Ninjago Movie, I’m not that all disappointed in this collection of Ninjago minifigs that LEGO has included in this TRU Bricktober collection. I appreciate how LEGO would tie-in these releases to correspond with their upcoming shows and programs.

Although the Austrian TRU poster indicates a release date of September for these minifigures, Bricktober in the US usually happens in October. So it seems that our European friends will certainly have an early share of these latest minifigure craze. Here’s the list or particular order of releases based on what we know from their boxes.

LEGO Ninjago Toys R Us Bricktober 2017 (5004938) – Week 1

LEGO Batman Movie Toys R Us Bricktober 2017 Minifigures (5004939) – Week 2

LEGO City Jungle Exploration Toys R Us Bricktober 2017 Minifigures (5004940) – Week 3

LEGO Toys R Us Bricktober 2017 Collectible Minifigures (5004941) – Week 4

 

Frankly, this year’s selection of Toys R Us Bricktober minifigures is far better than the bland selections that LEGO and TRU released last year, which is pretty generic. The LEGO Batman Movie series from this wave will certainly be on the top of my list, followed by the reboot of the Collectible Minifigures. How about you, brick fan, which is your personal favorite among these? Let us know in the comments below.

 

LEGO Store October Calendar Now Up!

The LEGO Store October Calendar has been released, and taking the spotlight is this year’s highly celebrated, and largest LEGO set of all time. Starting October 1, the LEGO Star Wars Millennium Falcon (75192) will be available to the general public both at LEGO Stores and shop.LEGO.com. This and much more will be happening throughout the month of October so let’s check it out.

October 1: Own the largest LEGO set ever produced – The LEGO Star Wars UCS Millennium Falcon (75192)!

VIP members may have an early start beginning September 14, but the rest of the world and legions of LEGO Star Wars fans may now have the chance to have their own LEGO Star Wars UCS Millennium (75192). Retailing at $800, the largest LEGO set to date comes in at 7,541 pieces and comes in two modes of play features: you can either play out classic LEGO Star Wars adventures with Han, Leia, Chewbacca and C-3PO, or enter the world of Episode VII and VIII with older Han, Rey, Finn and BB-8!

September 22 – October 8: Free The LEGO Ninjago Movie Lloyd (30609) minifigure polybag with a purchase of $50 or more, while supplies last.

First discovered on eBay a few weeks ago, this free exclusive minifigure comes with a unique printed torso, and a new tasseled sword piece.

October 1-31: Free LEGO Friends Keepsake Box (40266) with a LEGO Friends purchase of $25 or more, while supplies last.

The LEGO Friends Keepsake or Storage Box (40266) comes in at 105 pieces and actually functions as its name suggests. It sports two compartments: a covered, top compartment and a sliding drawer in front. It’s a pretty neat and functional build if I should say so, and comes at a relatively lower price point compared to other promotionals.

October 3-4: Free VIP Monthly Mini Model Build which is a Robot (40248)

To reserve your spot, simply register for the October MMB by visiting shop.LEGO.com/Minibuild-Registration starting September 15. The LEGO MMB is meant for children ages 6 to 14, and must be completely built in store.

October 10-25: VIP members get a Free exclusive VIP Set (40178) with a purchase of $125 or more, while supplies last. Also during this time, you get Double VIP points on all items.

If you recall, we first spotted this exclusive VIP set as a promotional in LEGO Store Shanghai in China back in July. It was given away then to all VIP customers with a minimum single receipt purchase worth 399 CNY and above. Thankfully, this dragon-inspired build is now available to all LEGO VIP members in the US for a minimum purchase of $125 worth of LEGO products. It seems to be a pretty nice set, especially with regards to the creative rendition of the Pick A-Brick Wall, LEGO box sets (though it uses stickers), and the collectible LEGO Store employee minifigure. As an added treat, all LEGO VIP members may once more take advantage of the Double VIP points promotional during this time.

October 14: Halloween Themed Building Event – Build Your Own Witch (40070).

Sign up to build and take home your very own Halloween-themed Witch model based on October 2013’s Monthly Mini Build which comes in at 22 pieces. Similar to the MMBs, in-store participation is limited to children ages 6 to 14, and registration will be on a first come, first serve basis due to its limited quantities.

As a last note, it’s good to know that the recently discovered LEGO BrickHeadz The LEGO Ninjago Movie Lloyd (41487) set will be available for purchase at all LEGO Stores in October.

First spotted as a Toys R Us exclusive, the LEGO BrickHeadz Lloyd set is also paired with a Master Wu (41488) BrickHeadz set both of which will retail for $9.99 each. We don’t have a definite date of release as of the moment as far as LEGO Stores are concerned, though the ones announced by TRU will be available starting October 1.

 

LEGO Ninjago Movie Lloyd and Master Wu BrickHeadz Arriving in Toys R Us This October!

Here’s another great reveal outside of this month’s Force Friday II euphoria. Toys R Us has recently listed for pre-order a pair of LEGO BrickHeadz sets to compliment the release of Warner Bros. next brick-built film, The LEGO Ninjago Movie. Adding to the roster of the largely popular BrickHeadz theme, are two of the film’s protagonist: the Green Ninja himself, Lloyd Garmadon, and his teacher Master Wu. Each set comes with an exclusively unique, printed baseplate that makes there BrickHeadz version highly collectible.

As it seems, the LEGO BrickHeadz Lloyd (41487) and Master Wu (41488) sets are exclusively available at TRU and will be released on October 1, 2017. Both sets are now available for pre-order and will retail for $9.99 each. We’ll wait for more updates to see if this will also be available at shop.LEGO.com and other retailers eventually.

Here’s the rest of the info for these latest BrickHeadz addition, courtesy of Toys R Us.

LEGO BrickHeadz Lloyd (41487)

This Lloyd LEGO® BrickHeadz construction character is fun to build using colorful LEGO bricks that recreate all of his iconic details, including ninja outfit with headband and belt. He also has a detachable katana sword and stands on a buildable collector’s baseplate with BrickHeadz icon for easy display in your home, office or anywhere you like.

It has plenty of details that bring to mind the nostalgia of the good ‘ol fishing days. Check out the set’s product information below, and the rest of the Old Fishing Store’s official images.

To mark its debut, LEGO Stores in the US gave away several premium LEGO Star Wars UCS Millennium Falcon (75192) brochures, as reported by The Brick Fan. According to Allen, the tri-fold brochure itself is a fitting testament to the grandiosity of the Falcon, with the brochure itself being made of high quality paper. The cover sports the Falcon’s exterior, while the contents shows the workings of its brick-built interiors and the different minifigures that goes along with it. As an added trivia, the brochure also reveals that the building instructions for the UCS MF will consist of 496 pages bound in a spiral booklet. As expected, some folks would like to see this as an aftermarket opportunity where they even posted these premium brochures for sale over at eBay.
