It seems that LEGO is really cranking things up a notch with its ridiculously zany take on the many different Bat costumes around. Coming in hot from the previous reveal of two new LEGO Batman minifigs in the polybag promotional LEGO Batman Movie Disco Batman and Tears of Batman (30607), comes another polybag that seems to look like a mashup between Pokemon and Batman in his party suit. Spotted by LEGO insider Delta Customs, this unnamed polybag seems to be an Asian exclusive promotional and comes in at 24 pieces featuring a new Batman minifig in a yellow striped tuxedo, encased in a pod or vault-like shell together with several accessories. Check out Delta’s Instagram post below.
Now this is just an afterthought, but I couldn’t help but think that this new LEGO Batman Movie minifigure bears a striking resemblance from a still that has been shared by Entertainment Weekly last Christmas Eve. The said photo still may not be that crucial to the overall plot of the film, but since director Chris McKay has already been quite frank about the various cameos that the LEGO Movie spin-off will allude to, I guess having a wittingly new costume to don our black and yellow hero will hardly be a shocker.
There is no news yet on the serial number of the said polybag, much more on how it can be obtained. We’ll keep you posted once more info comes in so be sure to stay tuned here at the Brick Show!
Waiting for January seems to be forever, especially if you’ve waited long enough to have the latest minifigure craze in Gotham in all its black and yellow glory. Since LEGO’s reveal of The LEGO Batman Movie Collectible Minifigures series last month, the said CMF series has received an overwhelming amount of positive feedback and reaction. This is one CMF series that certainly deserve a special spot in anyone’s minifigure collection.
Now if you’ve come prepared for this, and are ready to burn some serious cash for this collectible, then you’ll be glad to know that there are exactly three complete sets of all 20 minifigs in the series per box of 60. This means that you can give those LEGO-holic friends of yours and strike a sweet deal of pooling in some cash to ensure that all three of you gets all 20 minifigs of the LEGO Batman Movie CMF. This is one deal that is hard to pass.
However, if you’ll opt to feel your way through each polybag, aiming only to have a particular minifig donning your desk or shelf, then The Brothers Brick has written an excellent and very comprehensive feel guide that may help you get your most faved minifig. Furthermore, Promo Bricks has uploaded a copy of the LBM minifig checklist that you may print and bring with you in case you’ll go out hunting for that one sole minifigure you really want. Check these out by clicking on the images below.
If you’ll look again at the back side of the minifig checklist, you’ll immediately notice the silhouette of an undisclosed minifigure with an enigmatic date printed near it. As of this writing we do not have any news about this mysterious minifig. However, we can make a pretty good guess that this may be a teaser of some sorts for either CMF Series 17 or an entirely different set considering that another Disney film is slated to launch on May 26, 2017 which is Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales. We reported way back in July that we generally considered such news or connection of a new LEGO set to the film to be downright fake. But considering this teaser from the LBM CMF, and since the silhouette in question seems to wear a classic tricorn hat, then one can’t help but speculate if we’ll be seeing Jack Sparrow and the rest of his gang once again in their minifigure form.
So what do you think about this teaser? What do you think this is referring to? Share your thoughts in the comments below or head over at our Facebook page.
Pentatonix, the American a cappella group known for their rendition of hit songs such as Somebody That I Used to Know and We Are Young (whose YouTube videos also went viral), is now immortalized in LEGO form through a charmingly hilarious music video just in time for Christmas. Showing their child-like and fun-loving side, they’ve teamed up with LEGO to create a music video for their latest upbeat Christmas song Up On The Housetop. Rendered in minifigure forms, the group’s music video offers a 360-degree view that is also watchable in VR. Watch this.
LEGO seems to be showing interest in VR technology, following the announcement of its upcoming LEGO BrickHeadz VR Builder for the Android system last week. The virtual reality game allows players to enter a colorful virtual room where they take on the role of a particular BrickHeadz and interact with the environment using Google’s proprietary VR headset. If you recall, LEGO launched its Brickheadz theme during July’s San Diego Comic Con, focusing on both DC and Marvel superheroes.
When we thought we saw it all, a surprising revelation sheds light to another polybag set that comes under the LEGO Batman Movie theme. As mentioned by Minifigure Price Guide, a certain Facebook user that goes by the name Digibee and presumably based in Macau, has started offering the LEGO Batman Movie Disco Batman and Tears of Batman (30607) polybag. The said polybag features two minifgures of Batman wearing what seems to be a dance floor get up from the 70s including a pair of rolling shoes, while the other is a bit sketchy since it features Batman in what seems to be a clown suit and tagged as ‘Tears of Batman’. The only moment that it was hinted at in the trailers was when Dick Grayson was swooning over at Batman’s massive collection of bat suits. Here’s a screenshot of that particular scene and pay attention to the bat suit on the extreme left.
I’m definitely missing on some of the details here, especially considering that the ‘Tears of Batman’ minifigure also seems to hint at an amusement park setting (take a close look at the polybag’s background). Do you think the polybag itself is just a play on words, or does it reveal a very specific plot about the LEGO Batman Movie? Check this out.
If you recall, the very first polybag that we reported belonging to the LEGO Batman Movie involves the Caped Crusader seemingly trapped in the Phantom Zone. When we published about the existence of the Batman in the Phantom Zone (30522) polybag last October, LEGO was quick to gently remind us to take down the said image and we promptly complied. We are willing to do the same if ever LEGO will make a similar request again on this one.
There is no official release date for the LEGO Batman Movie Disco Batman and Tears of Batman (30607) polybag, but perhaps we might see this pop up in all LEGO Brand Stores and shop.LEGO.com later in January together with other polybags such as the Batman in the Phantom Zone (30522),The Joker Battle Training (30523) and the Mini Batwing (30524). These polybags have already caught the interest of some minifig collectors, so I expect that these polybag/minifigs will be out of stock very soon, with scalpers offering them on eBay for mind-boggling prices. For one, Digibee has already been selling some of these polybags over on Facebook for as much as $50 each.
Needless to say, these newest LEGO Batman minifigures will be a sure hit for collectors and fans alike. So what do you think about this polybag ? What is it trying to hint at? Tell us what you think in the comments below or join the discussions on our Facebook page. Many thanks to Minifigure Price Guide for pointing this out.
LEGO’s blockbuster toy-to-life game is not just about bringing brick-built toys to life. It also boasts of a massive mashup of some of the most beloved characters and licenses both in film and television. Given the adeptness of LEGO in bringing all these characters under one roof, it will not come as a surprise (in fact, it is expected) if the characters from the LEGO Dimensions portal will be making their appearance on the big screen – and there is no better way to do so than to be featured in the upcoming Warner Bros film, The LEGO Batman Movie. If you have seen all the five trailers already, then I’m quite sure you haven’t missed those LEGO Dimensions references.
To begin with, the latest trailer pays homage to the long running British sci-fi classic TV series, Doctor Who. If you notice this screen grab from one of the trailers, we see a throng of extraterrestrial beings named as Daleks working together to destroy a certain structure. These robotic characters bare very close resemblance on a particular LEGO Dimensions set which is the Cyberman (71238) also from the Doctor Who license.
The menacing Gremlins were also featured in one of the scenes where we saw them thrashing the Batjet while flying in midair! The minifigure version of these rogue critters is very much the same as that from the Gremlins Team Pack (72156). How many mogwais can you find in this screenshot?
Lastly, as we mentioned earlier, one of the rumored sets that will make it to the cut as an official LEGO Batman Movie set may likewise feature an unlikely villain coming from the LEGO Dimensions portal. Though, not seen in this screenshot, if you look carefully at the flying creatures in the background, then you’ll notice that these are the Wicked Witch’s Flying Monkeys as seen from the LEGO Dimensions set Wicked Witch (71221).
The LEGO Batman Movie does an amazing job of including all these LEGO Dimensions characters without losing sight of the main narrative. It is a clever way to add some LEGO fun and humor which makes the film even more appealing as audiences see the connections that each character has under the great LEGO sun. What other LEGO Dimensions mashup and themes do you think the LEGO Batman Movie has in store? We’ll find out once the film opens in theaters on February 10, 2017.
Be sure to check out our set reviews on the LEGO Batman Movie collection by following this link.
Warner Bros Animation has recently released its extended TV spot trailer that shows never-before-seen footage that may shed light to the ‘real score’ between Batman and Joker. It may likewise offer an explanation for the reason behind the Joker’s longstanding personal grudge. Well, as they use to say, ‘hell hath no fury like a villain scorned’. Okay, okay, I know it’s a feeble attempt at humor, but let’s be honest, seeing Joker putting on a puppy face like that after receiving from Batman the most painful 4-word sentence that he has ever heard in his entire life (“There is no us”!) – simply priceless!
The latest TV spot also introduces – in Joker’s words – ‘the worst villains in the history of the universe’. We’ve seen most of them already, including those that were handpicked by LEGO to be included in the official The LEGO Batman Movie sets, collectible minifigures and poster. This time around, we get to see totally new and not made up LEGO Batman villains such as the Gentleman Ghost from 1947 and the Condiment King (seriously?!) as he is seen in the video game, LEGO Batman 3: Beyond Gotham. Try to name as many Batman villains as you can from the TV Spot trailer below.
As a bonus, Warner gives us a sneak peek on how the members of the JLA chill out during their 57¼ annual anniversary party. I have to admit that for a moment, my heart skipped a beat seeing the Wonder Twins and Gleek, Black Vulcan, Apache Chief, and the Black Canary and the rest of my childhood superheroes rendered in LEGO minifigure form. I realized how great it will be if LEGO will somehow release an entire minifig collection focused solely on the classic Justice League. With a handful of sets still waiting to be revealed, I guess it will be nice to consider all the possibilities.
The LEGO Batman Movie is scheduled to hit US theaters on February 10, 2017 and stars Will Arnett as the voice of Batman aka Bruce Wayne, Zach Galifianakis stars as The Joker; Michael Cera as the orphan Dick Grayson; Rosario Dawson as Barbara Gordon and Ralph Fiennes as Alfred.
In the irreverent spirit of fun that made The LEGO Movie a worldwide phenomenon, the self-described leading man of that ensemble – LEGO Batman – stars in his own big-screen adventure. But there are big changes brewing in Gotham, and if he wants to save the city from The Joker’s hostile takeover, Batman may have to drop the lone vigilante thing, try to work with others and maybe, just maybe, learn to lighten up.
A couple of days ago, we shared with you one of the LEGO Star Wars ‘Easter eggs’ that was cleverly revealed during the release of the first official trailer of Disney and Marvel’s next big film, Spider-Man: Homecoming. Now being the second most trending video in YouTube with more than 15 million views already since it debuted on Jimmy Kimmel Live last Thursday, we now have some information on what possible LEGO sets that we can expect from the film. Thanks to Delta Customs – whom many of his predictions turned out to be 99% accurate, especially regarding how the LEGO Batman Movie sets will look like – we now have an idea on what LEGO has in store for good ‘ol Spidey.
Understanding the very close relationship between Disney and LEGO, Delta Customs noted that there will be TWO sets that LEGO will release to give the highly celebrated MCU film the LEGO treatment it deserves. Here’s what he shared over his Instagram account.
- Bank robbery
- Spider-Man and two robbers
- The robbers have “Avengers in their names”
- Spider-Man, Vulture (Big brick-built wings), Shocker, Iron Man
If you have seen the trailer already (which I bet you did for the Nth time), you’ll notice that pretty funny scene when Spidey confronts a group of certain bank robbers disguised as Avengers wannabes. Could this be what Delta Customs was hinting at? Actually, I feel that there is nothing much to speculate about the play features of a set based on a bank heist. But since this is everyone’s favorite web crawler, then I’m sure LEGO will give it a twist that every Marvel fan will enjoy.
Upon the mention of the second LEGO set having a Vulture character with big, brick-built wings, I felt right away that this may be some kind of mech-build or armor that may be mounted on Vulture’s minifig. But given how the Vulture may look like as seen in the trailer, it begs the question of how LEGO will render this supervillain given all the tech that he has with him.
It is also interesting to note that we see Tony Stark donning his Mark 46 suit at the end of the trailer, so it’s most likely that what Delta was referring to was the Iron Man minifig similar to what we already have in LEGO Marvel Superheroes Super Hero Airport Battle (76051). Of course, it’s too early to tell at this point, though it will be kind of cool to see a new Iron Man suit along Spider-Man in an epic battle scene with the Vulture and the Shocker.
Spider-Man Homecoming is set to hit theaters in July next year, so we will still have a few months to ponder how these sets will be like, giving an account of what Delta Customs has revealed. What can you say about these predicted sets? Do you think LEGO and Disney could have done a better job? Share your ideas in the comments below or join in the discussions over at our Facebook page.
If you’re reading this, then you’ll be pleased to know that you still have a chance to rake in those VIP points. Throughout this weekend and for a VERY limited time, LEGO has announced that its offering Double VIP Points for all purchases at all LEGO Brand Stores and at shop.LEGO.com.
This is good news, especially if you’re not done yet with your LEGO Christmas shopping list. However, you only have until today to enjoy this opportunity so be sure to make the most out of it. On the other hand, if you’re eyeing for that eye candy of a minifigure which is the LEGO Seasonal Gingerbread Man (5005156), then you might need to wait until tomorrow Monday for this exclusive promotional to start. For those who missed him together with the rest of the LEGO CMF Series 13, this is your chance to have him for FREE for any LEGO purchases of $50 and above. If you also time it just right (which I can still see from my end as of this posting), you can still have the privilege of FREE SHIPPING for orders $35 and above, and a FREE LEGO 2017 Coloring Wall Calendar.
So if you still have time for some last minute Christmas shopping, be sure to take advantage of these exclusives and freebies. So, what LEGO set do you still want to buy?
If you’re keen in following various LEGO Store promotionals, then you’ll probably recall that the LEGO December Store Calendar comes with another minifigure freebie that is hard to ignore. This month, starting December 12 until 18, LEGO Store shoppers (both in-store and online) will receive a FREE LEGO Gingerbread Man (5005156) minifigure for purchases of $50 and above.
LEGO has already uploaded images of this promotional via its servers and it confirms that the said minifigure exclusive will be offered in a packaging similar to that of TRU’s LEGO Chicken Suit Guy minifigure (5004468) promotional. Take a closer look.
If you missed on the little guy when he first made his appearance back in 2013 under LEGO’s Collectible Minifigures Series 11 (71002), this is your chance to definitely have him without feeling your way at any blind bag. Though it’s a nice touch to wrap him in a cardboard gingerbread house, I would be happier if LEGO took the extra mile by including his witty ‘Dunk Me’ mug accessory. They were able to add a sword accessory in TRU’s earlier promotional back in October which is a LEGO Ninjago Stone Armor Cole (5004393) minifigure so I guess it will not be difficult to do the same again. Nevertheless, it’s the holidays so having the little Gingerbread Man minifigure back again for FREE is a much-welcomed gift.
Now is also a good time to finish that Christmas LEGO shopping list that you’ve been working on especially that from December 12 to 20, LEGO will be offering FREE express saver shipping on any order of $35 and more. Take note that December 20 at noon is the last time to place an order online if you wish to have it arrive just in time for Christmas. Check shop.LEGO.com/shipping for full details.
