More LEGO Marvel Superheroes 2 Video Game Reveals @SDCC 2017!

More news from the San Diego Comic Con 2017! One of the panels (Marvel Games) that launched earlier today highlights the exciting game sequel, LEGO Marvel Superheroes 2. With the promise of a bigger roster of playable Marvel superheroes rendered in their LEGO minifigure form, the video game sequel features an entirely different take on the Marvel universe where our favorite superheroes are pressed for time to foil the plans of the nefarious super villain, Kang the Conqueror.

After the reveal of Medusa and Homemade Suit Spider-Man a few days ago at E3 and Disney 23 respectively, we now have confirmation that 3 playable Marvel comic book characters will be available as part of LEGO Marvel Superheroes 2’s ever-growing list of LEGO superhero characters.

We have a powerful fusion between two of the most abominable creatures in the Marvel universe: Carnage and Venom. Known as Carnom, the bigfig character is a mashup of these two unholy creatures and is slated to spring into action together with Spider-Man and Spider-Gwen.

Next, we have the return of our action-packed, comedic feathered friend, Howard the Duck. Other than an exclusive SDCC minifigure dedicated in the character of Deadpool Duck, Howard the Duck will also be a huge character in the digital realm where he is expected to play a big role in the game’s storyline. It was also revealed that he can also transform into Iron Duck – I just don’t know exactly how Tony Stark ended up making a suit for him.

It was also mentioned that Goblin 2099 will also be a playable character in LEGO Marvel Superheroes 2, so it will be kind of interesting to see how this will play out.

An all-new trailer is expected to be shown on Friday, so we’ll be on a look-out for more LEGO Marvel characters that might be revealed. LEGO Marvel Superheroes 2 is now available for pre-order, with a Deluxe Edition that comes with a Season Pass, the Classic GOTG Character Pack, and an exclusive Giant-Man minifigure. The game is expected to be released to the general public on November 14.

The LEGO Ninjago Movie Collectible Minifigures Sealed Box (71019) Now Listed for Pre-Order at Amazon France and Germany.

It seems that LEGO Ninjago fans in Germany and France will have an early start in  collecting not just all of the 20 minifigures slated under The LEGO Ninjago Movie Collectible Minifigures (71019) line, but also if they wish to share these collectibles to some friends as well. Set to be released on August 1, LEGO fans in Germany and France, may now pre-order the entire box of the said CMF series containing 60 blind bag items via retail giant Amazon.

Each box of The LEGO Ninjago Movie CMF contains exactly 3 sets of all 20 minifigures which is a good call from LEGO’s end and a delight for many fans. The minifigure box will be retailing for €219.99 and €213.52 via Amazon Germany and Amazon France respectively.

Hopefully, LEGO fans in the North America will also receive the same offer from Amazon. We’ll keep a close eye on this for the next few weeks, especially before the series’ launch on August 1. The LEGO Ninjago Movie is slated to hit theaters on September 22, with the first wave of LEGO sets scheduled to be available on August 1 as well.

Thanks to Hoth Bricks for the heads up.

 

 

 

A Look at the LEGO Ninjago Movie Collectible Minifigures Checklist and Instructions.

We already saw its box art and packaging, and this time, we have our first look at the LEGO Ninjago Movie Collectible Minifigure checklist courtesy of LEGO Quick Review.  Sightings and reports of this CMF’s availability has been making rounds on the Internet, and now we get to see its official checklist. There’s a total of 20 minifigures to collect, and the ones that I’ve set my sight on are the Jay Walker (#6) and Flashback Garmadon (#15) minifigs.

The checklist also provides some pretty exciting details on how to assemble the more complex minifigures. I find it interesting how the oriental skirt wraps around Master Wu’s minifig – quite ingenious actually.

If you’re eyeing to collect all 20, you’ll be happy to know that there are exactly 3 sets of 20 minifigs per box. You have the usual option of feeling your way through each blind bag, or just grab the entire box (if you have the cash to burn) and share the rest of it with your ninja friends. The LEGO Ninja Go Movie Collectible Minifigures will be available to the general public starting in August of this year, while the film itself is slated to hit theaters on September 22.

LEGO Store August Calendar Now Available.

Scanned images of the LEGO Store August Calendar are now making rounds online, and we now have a glimpse of the various sales and activities that will happen across LEGO stores in the US next month. Though the official PDF version of the calendar is still yet to be released, we can still have a closer look on what is in store in August. Check this out.

 

It seems that LEGO is investing a considerable amount of effort in promoting its latest robotics offering, the LEGO Boost Creative Toolbox (17101). The set is now available for pre-order both at shop.LEGO.com and via Amazon, and will debut to the general public starting August 1. Additionally, another exclusive D2C set is slated to arrive in August with the highly anticipated LEGO Creator Expert London Bus (10258). The iconic red bus will be available exclusively at all LEGO Stores and at shop.LEGO.com starting August 1.

August 10-31: Free exclusive Caveman & Cavewoman minifigures (5004936) with a purchase of $50 or more.

LEGO’s latest minifigure promotional was first spotted in LEGO Europe Summer Store Calendar last month, and as it seems, minifigure collectors in North America will also have the same opportunity of bringing this home. Referred to as the Iconic Cave set (5004936), this set comes with two rehashed collectible minifigures of a Caveman and Cavewoman, both of which were originally released under LEGO’s CMF Series 1 and Series 5 respectively. This follows LEGO’s past minifigure promotionals such as the Gingerbread Man and Chicken Suit Guy.

August 20-31: Free Build to Learn Pack with a purchase of $25 or more.

A perfect gift to the budding LEGO enthusiast, this free set contains several Duplo pieces, sticker sheet, and pages of building activities designed for toddlers and preschoolers.

Here’s a chance to sign-up for a one-on-one workshop on how to get the most out of the LEGO Boost Creative Toolbox (17101) set. Participants will learn how to code using the tech savvy set, with several demonstrations on how the LEGO Boost is the next big thing in brick-built robotics.

August 19 & 26: LEGO Life Meeting.

Join a LEGO Life Meeting at your nearest LEGO Store and get the chance to build the August mini-model. Registration has started already (for children 6 to 14 years old only) with a minimal fee of $10 per child.

A Look at The LEGO Ninjago Movie Collectible Minifigures Box Art and Packaging.

We had our first complete look at the LEGO Ninjago Movie Collectible Minifigures  last month. With a total of 20 minifigures under its belt, this latest collectible minifigure series based on LEGO’s next huge film is already proving to be attractive to most Ninjago fans and AFOLs. This time, thanks to Promobricks, we now have an idea how the official box art and blind bag will look like.

The box itself contains 60 blind bags, and is said to contain 3 sets of all 20 minifigures. It’s nice that LEGO opted to have this CMF series evenly distributed in such way. Any avid collector has thrice the opportunity to collect all 20 minifigs. If you wish to have a greater chance to pick-up that LNM minifig that you want (I would personally go for the Jay Walker minifigure with that new, scarf element and smartphone accessory), The Brick Fan came up with a helpful, feel guide that you may want to check.

The LEGO Ninjago Movie Collectible Minifigures will be available for sale both online and in-store starting August 1.
