Minecraft minifigs_02

Hot off the trail of LEGO’s Collectible Minifigures Series 16 (71013) comes another minifig collection that will surely be a hit among LEGO and Minecraft fans. The LEGO Minecraft Team has recently announced via their Facebook page that they will be releasing for the first time ever, two Skin Packs that are basically new exclusive minifigures that can complement any LEGO Minecraft sets, as The Brick Fan reports. The Skin Packs will have set numbers 853609 and 853610 assigned to them.

Minecraft minifigs Minecraft minifigs_01

The Skin Packs include eight minifigures which includes a Camouflage wearing character, your usual Normal Guy in an everyday shirt, the Captain of the ship, a Cyborg looking minifigure, Knight (which looks like Boba Fett actually), a Crafter, Adventurer (which seems to take hint from Han Solo) and what the LEGO Minecraft Team refers to as the Full Moon guy.

We don’t have any info yet with regards to pricing, and where to get them but its September release date is not that far away so expect LEGO to be revealing more in the next few weeks. Given their serial numbers, it may suggest that they maybe exclusively available at all LEGO Brand Stores and at shop.LEGO.com.

Watch this video for a closer look of the LEGO Minecraft Collectible Skin Packs.

Take A Look At This Neat Feel Guide For The LEGO Collectible Minifigure Series 16 (71013).

All

Since the report that some Toys R Us stores has already been selling the much awaited LEGO Collectible Minifigures Series 16 (71013), there has been some fair degree of confusion going on what is the actual  or official release date of this latest minifig series. There have been some initial reports that mention a September debut, alongside of the LEGO Disney Castle, as mentioned by CM4Sci over at Eurobricks.

However, there is a pretty good deal of evidence showing that most LEGO minifig collectors have already gotten their hands full with these latest LEGO minifigure collection, with some of them sharing their ‘feel guides’. Minifigure Price Guide and The Family Brick have both recently published their respective feel guides which we would like to summarize below. Images and pictures of individual minifigures are courtesy of Jang Bricks.

 

Ice Queen

Noticeable piece: the dress piece.

001

 

Arabian Knight

Noticeable pieces: the sword hilt and the turban, you have to feel these two together.

002

 

Cyborg

Noticeable pieces: the shoulder piece together with the gun is a clear hint.

003

 

Imp Costume Kid

Noticeable pieces: it’s the short legs, pitch fork, and wings that clearly points to this minifigure.

004

 

Spooky Boy

Noticeable pieces: just feel for the spider’s legs and the Spooky Tales book.

005

 

Hiker Guy

Noticeable pieces: the bulky backpack and the map tile must go together since the Pirate also has a map with him. For added measure, try to feel for the 1×1 tile piece.

006

 

Wildlife Photographer

Noticeable pieces: just feel for the penguin, camera, and hood.

007

 

Kickboxer

Noticeable pieces: the long hair, helmet, and 1×1 cylinder brick are absolute giveaways.

008

 

Pirate

Noticeable pieces: same as that of the Hiker Guy, feel for the Pirate’s map tile together with the sword.

009

 

Penguin Kid

Noticeable pieces: short legs AND penguin head and arms. Feel for the ice skates for added measure.

010

 

Rogue

Noticeable pieces: feel for the bow and arrow, PLUS the headpiece.

011

 

Dog Show Judge

Noticeable pieces: the dog and the trophy are all that you need to feel for in this one.

012

 

Serenader

Noticeable pieces: it’s got to be the hat and guitar definitely.

013

 

Spy

Noticeable pieces: feel for the dude’s spyglasses and the rope.

014

 

Banana Guy

Noticeable piece: the big, banana costume piece is certainly easy to feel.

015

 

Baby Sitter

Noticeable piece: it’s the baby and his baby bottle is all that you need to feel for, but added measure you may also try to feel for the head piece element which is unique to this minifigure.

WATCH: Video Gameplay For LEGO Dimensions’ Sonic, Gizmo, And More Featured At The SDCC 2016.

IGN Lego Dimensions 02

With the recent trailer of Sonic’s gameplay in LEGO Dimensions Series 2 now out, it will certainly be nice to see how the Blue Blur will interact with the rest of the gang. IGN’s Brian Altano and Marty Silva had an exclusive interview with LEGO Dimensions’ Game Director Arthur Parsons over at the San Diego Comic-Con where the latter also showcased the various abilities of the newest characters to be included in LEGO Dimensions. Watch the interview below and see how Sonic, Gizmo, and E.T. play around inside Jake and Finn’s Adventure Time Treehouse.

Obviously, Sonic’s strongest selling point is his lightning speed coupled with his Acrobat ability and pretty cool grind rail moves. Gizmo’s Combat Roll and Dash Attack abilities can be used to get him out of sticky situations, plus he comes with a great looking Rambo costume when he uses his ranged attacks. E.T. looks so cute as he moves along in LEGO Dimensions with his Illumination and Fix-It abilities. It’s a great time to be a kid of the 80s once more with all the modern and classic characters teaming together in one cool mashup video game.

IGN Lego Dimensions

A Round Up Of The Most Recent LEGO Dimensions Series 2 Packs That We Have Seen Yet.

bigger-possibilities-600x338

With the recent celebration of Sonic’s 25th anniversary and the on-going awesome events of the San Diego Comic-Con, we now have some bits and pieces of information on the look and feel of some of the sets that are included in what was called as Wave 2 of LEGO Dimensions Series 2. Here’s a rundown of what we know so far from the various sources that we gathered.

 

LEGO Dimensions Marceline The Vampire Queen Fun Pack (71285)

As part of its Adventure Time series, LEGO Dimensions has partnered with Toys R Us to have the party rocking Marceline as an exclusive TRU offering which will be available on November 18, 2016. 71285 comes with a Marceline minifigure with her signature axe guitar and Lunatic Amp.

LEGO Dimensions Fantastic Beasts and Where To Find Them Story Pack (71253)

Just in time for the film’s theatrical debut this November, the next Story Pack in LEGO Dimensions Series 2 directly comes from the work of world-renowned writer J.K. Rowling. We first had a glimpse of how this Story Pack looks like through the latest Argos Catalogue from the UK. Similar to the Ghostbusters Story Pack, the Fantastic Beasts Story Pack 71253 allows you to play the movie in LEGO Dimensions. The set includes the Newt Scamander minifigure, a brick-built Nifler, and the portal-like entrance to the Magical Congress of the United States of America (MACUSA). We also have an image of the actual set as revealed during Day 1 of the San Diego Comic-Con, courtesy of The Brick Fan.

LEGO Dimensions Fantastic Beasts Tina Goldstein Fun Pack (71257)

Coming in hot from SDCC is another addition to the Fantastic Beasts franchise, this time with LEGO Dimensions Tina Goldstein Fun Pack 71257. The set comes with the Tina minifigure and a brick-built figure of the Swooping Evil, as seen from the image below.

LEGO Dimensions 71257

 

LEGO Dimensions E.T. Fun Pack (71258)

LEGO Dimensions ET Fun Pack

CM4Sci gave us a first look how the iconic Extra Terrestrial will look like if given the LEGO Dimensions treatment. Though the minifigure version of ET is absolutely gorgeous, most fans over at Eurobricks were not really that thrilled over the telephone. The set has 42 pieces and will retail at $11.99. For those of you who are not that familiar with this 1982 Steven Spielberg masterpiece, the brick built phone in this set alludes to that scene where ET learns what a phone is, thinking that it could help him communicate with his home planet. Take a look at this video clip and see if you can notice how ET gets the idea.

 

LEGO Dimensions Sonic The Hedgehog Level Pack (71244)

As we earlier reported, the Blue Blur now speeds his way to LEGO Dimensions and we now have an official trailer to mark the event. The LEGO Dimension Level Pack comes with the iconic Sonic the Hedgehog minifigure, together with two brick built vehicles of the Sonic Speedster and high-flying Tornado, retailing at $29.99.

We are positive that Warner Bros Interactive and TT Games are gearing up for more LEGO Dimensions reveals anytime soon, with plenty of other titles such as that from the Teen Titans GO!, the Power Puff Girls, Goonies, and much so more that we are still waiting for to see. Stay tuned here at the Brick Show for more of your usual LEGO Dimensions fix.

WATCH: Sonic Celebrates His 25th Birthday By Having His Very Own LEGO Dimensions Level Pack!

lego-dimensions-sonic-the-hedgehog

The fastest hedgehog on the planet is now celebrating his 25th birthday, and his present can’t be any cooler than this. Following the official announcement of LEGO Dimensions’ Game Developer and Producer, Doug Heder  at last month’s Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3), Sonic The Hedgehog now finally makes his debut as TT Games revealed the new LEGO Dimensions Sonic The Hedgehog Level Pack (71244), scheduled to arrive sometime this Fall.

What a perfect birthday gift for the Blue Blur as LEGO honors him on his 25th anniversary! The said Level Pack comes with an awesome Sonic minifigure, with all the fine details such as his trademark running shoes and a very impressive headpiece. Set 71244 also comes with two brick-built vehicles: the Sonic Speedster and Tornado.

LEGO Dimensions Sonic

LEGO Dimensions Game Directors Arthur Parsons and James Mcloughlin came in with the announcement over Sonic’s 25th Anniversary Party which was streamed live over at Twitch channel. According to the powerhouse duo, LEGO’s toys-to-life kitchen is cooking up more surprises under Sonic’s franchise and understandably, they are quite mum on the details. Sonic’s YouTube channel has recently uploaded its official LEGO Dimensions trailer highlighting some of the cool things that Sonic can do once he enters the LEGO Dimensions portal. Watch this.

It’s great to see Sonic move and interact with the various worlds and characters of LEGO Dimensions, including a 2D game mode that pays tribute to the Blue Blur’s humble beginnings. Staying faithful in rendering Sonic’s abilities, his LEGO Dimensions character will also feature a Super Sonic mode once all seven Chaos Emeralds are collected throughout the game.

Looking forward, Sega also released a teaser trailer on what has been dubbed as Project Sonic 2017 – the latest journey that awaits Sonic and his friends. Project Sonic is expected to arrive sometime during the holidays in 2017, and will be available across all major gaming consoles.

With 16 new titles and licenses under its banner, LEGO Dimensions Series 2 is definitely a must have for any Dimensions fans, needless to say for all LEGO minifigure connoisseurs. Series 1 of Wave 6 which includes the Ghostbusters Story Pack (71242), Adventure Time Level Pack (71245), Adventure Time Team Pack (71246), Harry Potter Team Pack (71247), Missions Impossible Level Pack (71248), and The A-Team Fun Pack (71251) are now available for pre-order over at Wildcard Toys.

ATOM mnifigure

LEGO has now officially revealed the next minifigure exclusive that will join the LEGO Steve Rogers Captain America minifigure in this year’s San Diego Comic-Con. Following TLG’s reveal last week, we now have CW’s The Atom as the next DC Superhero that we’ll be featured during the Comic-Con alongside Cap.

The LEGO Atom minifigure exclusive takes hint from Ray Palmer as seen in CW’s Arrowverse. Furthermore, according to The Brick Fan, the Atom/Ray Palmer minifigure is the third character featured from the Arrowverse as the Green Arrow was given away back in 2013 and Arsenal from last year.

As you can see, the Atom minifigure also comes with a printed 4×4 plate with the words Palmer Technologies printed on it. The said minifigure will be given by LEGO when SDCC kicks off on Thursday, July 21 and Saturday, July 23 at the Pavilion Terrace starting at 12:30PM. It is estimated by Minifigure Price Guide that around 2,000 pieces of each these exclusives will be sold by LEGO during the Comic-Con, which will be valued anywhere from $150-$250 each. As of the moment, we’re seeing a lot of these minifigs being offered at eBay together with LEGO’s newly released line of Brickheadz brick-built figures.

We’ll definitely look forward to have our hands on these minifigs and watch out for Stephen and Jason’s reviews of these SDCC exclusives only here at the Brick Show!

 

Boston Red Sox Announces Partnership With The LEGO Group, With Its LEGO Day At Fenway Park.

960x540_legoday_nologo_oy8khg9y_dugxn3eg

Mark August 31 on your calendars as Red Sox just announced its latest, long overdue partnership with LEGO. Dubbed as the very first LEGO Day at Fenway Park, fans and baseball enthusiasts who will be purchasing tickets on August 31 when the Red Sox squares off with Tampa Ray Bays will be treated with a limited edition Red Sox LEGO brick built figure. Read on for the full announcement straight from RedSox.com.

The Red Sox and LEGO Systems, Inc. are proud to announce the first LEGO® Day at Fenway Park, Wednesday, August 31 at 1:35 pm when the Red Sox face the Tampa Bay Rays. The purchase of a game ticket through this special offer also includes a limited edition Red Sox themed player build, made with LEGO bricks. Additionally, this ticket package will include access to the pre-game LEGO Build Experience in the Kids Concourse from 11:00am-1:35pm – we are excited to have a LEGO Master Builder on hand to join us! During the LEGO Build Experience we will unveil a life-sized Red Sox player LEGO model for fans to see and take pictures with. Be there for this special moment as tickets are limited to the first 2,000 guests who order through this special offer.

For any questions or groups of 20+ please contact Travis Pollio at 617-226-6790 or tpollio@redsox.com.

As Brickset pointed out, this could be a start of a promising partnership with professional sports organizations, with its recent partnership with the German National Football Team and the release of the limited edition LEGO Team DFB Collectible Minifigures (71014). Historically, this is the second time that LEGO entered a deal with the Red Sox, with the first one back in 1999 where the Red Sox did a same promotional when they gave away an ultra rare Red Sox Minifigure, that now costs anywhere between $100 to $230 over at Bricklink.

redsox

A quick browse also shows that LEGO has also once released a similar sports-themed minifig series with the LEGO NBA Basketball Series back in 2003, and the LEGO Team GB Minifigures (8909) released in 2012. Frankly, there has not been a lot of sports-themed minifigures that LEGO offered, so it is will really be great if LEGO can come up with a Red Sox themed minifigure collection sometime in the future. It will be a bit of a challenge though, since Oyo Sports now has claim over the collectible sports minifigure arena with license to produce its own set of customized minifigs for major sports association in the US such as the NFL, NHL, MLB, and MLS.

P-NHLANA02-G2LE_hero P-NFLGBP04LH_hero P-MLSCOL01-G2LE_hero P-MLBMIA27-G5LE_hero

We’ll see where LEGO goes with this, and be sure to get your tickets on the 31st of August to avail this exclusive treat from LEGO.
