Is This the LEGO Buccaneer Batman Minifigure?

There has been some buzz going around certain LEGO fan forums since last October hinting on the possibility that the exclusive minifigure to be offered by Dorling Kindersley (DK) on its upcoming book title, LEGO DC Comics Super Heroes Character Encyclopedia will be the much rumored ‘Buccaneer Batman’. Though just2good, the guy responsible for dropping the bombshell did not mention any details nor the source of his info, he seems to be utterly convinced about it.

Now with the recent digital HD release of another direct-to-video LEGO movie, “LEGO DC Comics Super Heroes: Justice League: Cosmic Clash”, there might be some grain of truth on what just2good was so adamant about.  For those who have ordered a digital copy of this latest LEGO movie last February 9, they might notice something of an Easter egg on one of the scenes. This is when the DC heroes travelled back in time where Batman was found wearing the ‘right’ costume for the job. Here are some snapshots that TheBrickFan.com and French-based website, Brickheroes.com just shared with us.

Again, it is wise not to jump to any conclusions at this time and we simply have to take things with a grain of salt. Recent developments may lead us to conclude that this will be the next Batman minifig, but truth be told it is all but speculations at this point. So for now, we just have to wait until we get our hands on DK’s latest LEGO book. Here’s a draft on how the book’s cover might look like, and a brief introduction on what to expect of DK’s LEGO DC Comics Super Heroes Character Encyclopedia:

LEGO Unveils First Minifigure in a Wheelchair in LEGO City Fun in the Park (60134)

A few days ago, LEGO released what could be its first person with disability minifigure. It was spotted by Promobricks at the Nuremberg, Germany and London toy fairs, photos of which were posted on their blog site and shared with the website. The first ever minifigure on a wheelchair is part of the newest set, LEGO City Fun in the Park (60134) City People Pack, and also includes an ice-cream vendor, cyclist, and picnickers and a host of other minifigs in a new park scene. The said PWD minifig depicts a young, cool guy donning a beanie and a hoodie together with his companion dog.

It caused quite a stir across social media because as we said, it’s a first for a LEGO – and a good one to. The sighting of this new minifigure is significant since the company has been bombarded recently with accusations for its lack of diversity, and stereotyping. LEGO in fact received a barrage of criticism from educators and activists, for releasing an elderly minifig with a wheelchair as part of the Duplo line which caters to toddlers and preschool aged children. According to its critics, the introduction of such figures in a toy system intended for very young kids reinforces the stereotypical image of elderly people as unproductive members of the larger society.

Now with the introduction of its first ever, wheel-chair riding minifigures in LEGO City Fun in the Park (60134), The LEGO Group might receive its needed PR boost. #ToyLikeMe co-founder Rebecca Atkinson, which spearheaded a petition at Change.org, managed to gather 20,000 signatures which lobbied Lego to include people with disabilities minifigures in its sets.  This could be a second milestone with regards to the issue of sensitivity and diversity among toy manufacturers, the first being with Mattel’s releasing of new body types for the world’s most famous doll, Barbie.

According to a written statement by Atkinson, “The whole issue came as a bit of a shock to me, because you can get tons of LEGO superhero figures, pretty much any kind you want. And there are disabled superheroes! But I looked it up. They do not have official LEGO Professor X figs or Barbara Gordon/Oracle figs. They don’t even have Stephen Hawking!” Though as the brick company claims, the LEGO system offers endless possibilities in coming up with figures that can be customized by any child to approximate his environment, it is the company’s official acknowledgment that activists were seeking.

The #ToyLikeMe organizers took this as a very positive gesture, and joyfully wrote on their campaign page, “We’ve got genuine tears of joy right now … LEGO has just rocked our brick-built world!”

“It’s pretty momentous, even though it’s just a little toy. It’s about the message behind it, which is far, far bigger than a little one-inch-tall plastic guy.”, Atkinson said.

LEGO will begin to offer this unique minifig through their LEGO City Fun in the Park (60134) City People Pack beginning July of this year. For now, check out this video from Promobricks regarding set 60134 as they spotted this during the Nuremberg Toy Fair. The featured image above is courtesy of Promobricks.

Disney Minifigure Series To Get 18 Minifigures!

The Brick Pirate forum revealed today that we will be getting 18 minifigures in the coming Disney series. We typically get 16 minifigures per series, so this is a bit of a surprise. Rumor has it that Peter Pan and Captain Hook will be 2 of the 18 minifigures.

Some speculate that Mickey Mouse is also a very likely choice. Release date for the Disney Minifigures series is May of 2016.
