More Teasers To What Everyone Is Anxiously Waiting For – THE Largest LEGO UCS Star Wars Set Ever Made!

We’re just counting the days before Force Friday II officially kicks off on September 1 – and LEGO definitely knows how to ride the waves and build up the excitement. Since the start of this month, LEGO has been leaving a trail of bread crumbs to what most of us believe to be the comeback of the iconic starship that made the Kessel Run in less than 12 parsecs. The rumor that a reboot of 2007’s LEGO Star Wars UCS Millennium Falcon (10179) is in the works has been lingering for a few months already, and now more than ever, the excitement is almost at a crescendo.

LEGO’s most recent tweet has already confirmed that this is the largest LEGO Star Wars set ever made, in fact THE largest LEGO set ever to be offered to the public dwarfing the current contender which is 2008’s Taj Mahal (10189). At a whopping 7,541 pieces, this mystery set is estimated to retail anywhere between $600 to $700 USD as calculated by Brickset.

In related news, LEGO is now giving away flyers pointing to the set’s debut on September 1 at all LEGO Stores worldwide. If we understand correctly what the LEGO September Store Calendar says, this uber massive LEGO Star Wars mystery set will be available for early VIP access from September 14 to 30, and will be available to the general public starting October 1.

What do you think, will LEGO release another teaser before the set is unveiled on September 1? Are you excited about this? Share us what you think in the comments below.

Also for the first time, we get to see the minifigure characters of Adam Warlock, Man-Thing, Heimdall, Nebula, Iron Fist, Black Bolt and many more. It is one truly grand, LEGO Marvel comic book mashup that you don’t want to miss. Here’s the latest official game play trailer.

Let’s go to Chronopolis!

Take a look. The Amazon Japan listing further states that the LEGO Ghostbusters Ecto-1 and Ecto-2 (75828) is scheduled to be released locally on July 22 – exactly a week after the movie’s 2016 femme fatale remake debuts in US theaters on July 15. The set is believed to have 556 pieces, together with all the modern Ghostbusters minifigures – all five of them – gathered in one set. With a great deal on the number of minifigs that come with the set, then a price point of $59.99 sounds reasonable.

When their youngest discovers a natural connection with the Force through an ancient artifact — the Kyber Saber — his world is turned upside down, and he and his family are thrown into an epic struggle against the Empire to restore peace and freedom to the galaxy. Throughout their adventures, the Freemakers explore new worlds, meet new and familiar characters, and learn the true value of what it means to be a family.

We are sure fans young and old are going to love the show.”

“With The Freemaker Adventures we are thrilled to bring all-new stories to life that could only be realized in the LEGO Star Wars universe,” said Carrie Beck, vice president, animation development at Lucasfilm. “We are embarking on an unprecedented collaboration that will allow us to extend the narrative experience of the Star Wars saga with the same playful spirit that’s always made LEGO Star Wars so much fun to watch. We are so thankful to have such great partners in the LEGO Group, Disney XD, and series developers Bill Motz and Bob Roth.”

These Might Be The Most Customized LEGO Minifigures Ever

The cool thing about LEGO minifigures is that you can interchange and swap them with other minifig components. Consisted of a head-piece, the head itself, upper torso, lower torso, and one accessory, LEGO wants to stay true in its purpose of sparking creativity and variety even with its smallest of playthings, while allowing more room for its fans to be creative. And what better way to express this creativity through these highly customized LEGO minifigures.

Chris Lightfoot of Lincoln, England decided to push the limits of LEGO minifig customization to a whole new level with his unique, customized LEGO minifigures . During the day, he is a 3D printing specialist who develops artificial bones for the medical industry and models for architectural firms. Being a LEGO fan himself, he founded his online hobby store Funky 3D Faces. Lightfoot comments, “Although we do enjoy making bones and buildings we wanted to use the technology we had to make something fun and affordable to the masses.” For just less than US$30, you can have a funky, customized look of ‘your little monster’ and turn him into a little hero. According to their website, you just need to send along two clear photographs, one of the side of your head and one taken face-on. Funky 3D Faces then converts those photos into an “eerily lifelike” 3D head, as described by CNET reporter Amanda Kooser.

The process behind the creation of these 3D printed, customized LEGO minifigures is equally impressive as the outcome itself. “We convert 2 photographs into 3D – then using sophisticated full-color 3D printers, we create eerily life-like 15mm high heads,” Chris explains. The head-making process even includes your choice in hair style and color. The heads are sized to be more or less 15 millimeters. It has a sandstone finish with a hole in the neck that perfectly fits on any Lego minifigure. “This means you can turn yourself into whatever Lego character you want, whether it’s a Stormtrooper or one of the Ghostbusters”, adds Kooser. Tiny as it seems, the production of this 3D figure is somehow lengthy and usually takes up to two weeks. So plan accordingly if you need it for a special occasion or as a gift.
