Official Images of LEGO Nexo Knights 2018 Sets Now Up.

Since most of the 2018 LEGO Nexo Knights have been spotted already in the wild over at Toys R Us, LEGO has now updated its servers to include the official images of these latest sets. It seems that all of the sets have been officially revealed except for Lance’s Hover Jouster (72001), which might be a store exclusive. We just have to wait probably until the end of the month, or once Brick Friday kicks in, to find out. For now, let’s enjoy these crisp images.

Among the five sets that have been revealed already, I’ll say that my personal favorite is the Tech Wizard Showdown (72004). The idea of having a battle suit placed inside a larger mech always gets my attention, similar to the Hulk Buster Smash (76031). In spite the sheer amount of weaponry and play features that Clay’s mech has, it still manages to have a moderate degree of articulation and is impressively stable.

As I mentioned in an earlier post, what I find appealing about these latest Nexo Knights sets are the designs of the Cyberbyters’ (not really sure if this is how they are called) rides. I’m sure fans of the Classic Space sets will find that the Blacktron vibe is surely felt with these latest offerings. The black and translucent green color scheme on the Twinfector (72002) and Berserker Bomber (72003) surely nailed it. It gives you a feeling that these latest LEGO sets will not just be appealing to children, but also to older, nostalgic AFOLs. There are rumors that these might be the last wave of LEGO Nexo Knights sets that we will ever see due to relatively underwhelming sales figures. Let’s just hope that the theme has what it takes to continue its creative and action-packed storyline, and for us to see more good sets later on.

2018 LEGO BrickHeadz Justice League Sets Official Images Revealed!

Warner Bros’ Justice League may not be receiving very good reviews lately, now that it is out in theaters. However, LEGO has something in store to somehow turn things around. After the reveal of the LEGO BrickHeadz Rey and Kylo Ren (41489) Target store exclusive, we now have official images of DCEU’s brick-built superheroes. Shared via social media, LEGO has unveiled four LEGO DC Comics Justice League BrickHeadz to its roster of 2018 collectibles consisting of the Flash, Wonder Woman, Aquaman and Cyborg. No sign of Superman or Batman just yet, but I do hope LEGO has something in the works to complete the JL ensemble.

The LEGO DC Comics Justice League BrickHeadz will be available for purchase in stores and online beginning January 2018. In the meantime, check out these crystal clear images.

The Flash (41598)

Wonder Woman (41599)

Aquaman (41600)

Cyborg (41601)

Brickset has tagged set 41597 as a Justice League character so it’s kind of interesting who this will be. I hope it is the Man of Steel himself since we only saw him as an SDCC exclusive last year. So what do you think of these LEGO Justice League BrickHeadz? Which will you likely pick up once they appear on toy stores? Let us know in the comments below.

 

2018 LEGO Batman Movie Sets Revealed!

After much speculation last July on what could be included in the list of LEGO’s 2018 sets including those from the LEGO Batman Movie theme, we now have a pretty good look at the latest TLBM sets that are slated for release in January. Courtesy of The Brothers Brick, this next wave of sets from the LEGO Batman Movie includes a very nice collection of minifigures that most fans are waiting for. Other than the 2nd series of TLBM Collectible Minifigures, these sets have an awesome roster of new minifigs that will complement both Batman’s Rogue List and those from the Justice League. We don’t have a piece count, pricing and official product description just yet, but we’ll sure keep you posted once LEGO officially releases them. For the mean time, let’s enjoy these images.

The Bat-Dune Buggy (70918) 

Minifigures: Batman, Captain Boomerang

The Justice League Anniversary Party (70919)

Minifigures: El Dorado, Green Arrow, Hawkgirl, Superman, Wonder Dog

The Egghead Mech Food Fight (70920)

Minifigures: Batman, Condiment King, Egghead

Harley Quinn Cannonball Attack (70921)

Minifigures: Batgirl, Crazy Quilt, Gentleman Ghost, Harley Quinn

The Bat-Space Shuttle (70923)

Minifigures: Batman, Batman (Firestarter Suit), Batman (Space Suit), Dick Grayson, Reggae Man

For what it looks like, the Bat-Dune Buggy is perhaps the smallest build in this series, with a closer to the film rendition of Captain Boomerang as compared to how we see him in LEGO DC Comics Super Heroes Killer Croc Sewer Smash (76055). The build of the Bat-Dune Buggy is also kind of sleek and will be a good addition to the theme’s other smaller builds such as the Catwoman Catcycle Chase (70902).

It’s nice of LEGO to finally grant what most LEGO DC fans are asking for with the inclusion of a Justice League Anniversary Party set. However, I must admit that the overall build of this set is a bit of underwhelming. I’m glad that we can somehow complete our roster of JL minifigures, but the stage itself is a bit out of proportions as we see in the film – smaller than what I expected. But for all it’s worth, and especially if you’re aiming to collect all known LEGO Justice League minifigures and see all of them hanging around, then the Justice League Party (70919) is a good set to begin with. Too bad there is no Gleek minifigure, to accompany Wonder Dog.

The Egghead Mech Food Fight (70920) will probably be my personal pick. LEGO nailed it with this one, combining both the intimidating features of a battle suit and the wackiness of having fried eggs as your armaments of choice. The build of Egghead’s mech suit is reminiscent of 2007’s LEGO Exo-Force theme were LEGO explored the possibilities of creating high tech mechanical battle suits piloted by battle-ready minifigs. Since it is supposedly a food fight, take it to LEGO to throw in one of the experts in the field (pun intended): Condiment King. It was already teased several times that the dispenser-wielding baddie will be part of an official LEGO set and I’m glad that he finally did. The stud shooter is one of my favorite piece/element in any LEGO set, but I feel that it will be much better for Condiment King if he will be holding a pair of actual dispensers instead. Nevertheless, I love this set and I hope to have my hands on this one once it goes for sale in January.

Those who are looking for Gentleman Ghost will be delighted to know that he is now officially available as a minifig that comes with the Harley Quinn Cannonball Attack (70921). Not only that, but LEGO throws in another new minifigure in the character of Crazy Quilt. I have to say that LEGO did a really nice job in offering a crazy cool collection of baddies in this series.

For what it looks like, this last set in this series is the second TLBM set that offers a sort of bat suit collection, next to the earlier Batcave Break-In (70909) set. The Bat Space Shuttle (70923) not only offers a nice addition to the Dark Knight’s collection of signature vehicles such as a kayak, cart, and a space shuttle (I just couldn’t imagine why Batman will need a space shuttle in his Batcave), but we also have another collection of Batman’s outfits such as the Firestarter, Reggae Man, and the Bat Spacesuit. Know I’ve really lost count on how many LEGO batsuits are there in existence.

The 2018 LEGO Batman Movie sets are expected to hit toy stores in January next year so we can expect to see more official images and product descriptions during the next few weeks.

More Box Art Images of the Latest 2018 Nexo Knights Sets Spotted!

After Jason and the rest of the Brick Show team went on a LEGO hunting trip yesterday, it appears that more sightings of the latest wave of LEGO Nexo Knights sets have been spotted in various Toys R Us stores. Thanks to Eurobricks forum members, we now have some decent images of the sets’ box arts that might give us a hint on how these sets are. As of this writing, 5  out of 6 of the 2018 sets were now spotted ahead of this year’s Brick Friday LEGO sale. However, it seems that official images are only limited to the Berserker Bomber (72003), and we still haven’t seen the likes of Lance’s Hover Jouster (72001).  We’ll keep you posted once official images are which are expected to be available by before the end of the month.

Here’s what fellow AFOLs found through various stores. Credits also to Brickset for sharing some of these images.
