If you need any indicator for how big LEGO Unikitty! is now, look no further than the never-ending parade of new sets and polybags depicting the cat/unicorn Master Builder and princess of the Unikingdom alongside her friends having fun in some pretty quirky set locales.
Following the reveal of our first wave of LEGO Movie 2 sets, now comes another attraction to watch out for (and to take selfies from) at the LEGO Booth once the San Diego Comic Con kicks in next week. Revealed via Twitter, this large-scale, brick-built statue of LEGO’s Ultrakatty stands at an intimidating 4 feet tall and measures 7 and a half feet long.
After LEGO’s initial reveal via Twitter of the first three tie-in sets slated for the upcoming LEGO Movie sequel, we now have our first wave of the LEGO Movie 2 official set images, names, and descriptions released via LEGO fan site Brick Fanz. These sets are scheduled to be showcased during next week’s San Diego Comic Con from July 19-22.
Normally when one mentions sculptures being built on a LEGOLAND theme park somewhere in the world, the immediate assumption is that it’s a brand new multi-brick model or edifice designed by that park’s master builders and put together with high ladders and even cranes. It’s a LEGO park after all. Well, with the UK now getting started with their summer season, LEGOLAND Windsor is joining the fun by introducing a new sculpture to advertise the park’s Summer of Fun beach-party themed event period. But rather than splurge on more bricks to assemble, this build is a sand sculpture like you would find on a beach.
It’s hard to miss the fact that LEGO is heavily invested on other forms of media and communication well outside its core offering of toys and educational children’s products. Films and TV shows? They’re covered. How about videogames? LEGO has them too, from console titles to some fun mobile apps. And it’s incredible how many LEGO mobile apps they’re developing concurrently. Aside from baseline LEGO builds rendered in AR, and the app controls for the new LEGO Batmobile (76112), there’s a new app launched that’s based on the popular BrickHeadz line of cute brick-built figures. It’s called (simply) BrickHeadz Builder.
