More 2018 LEGO Technic Sets Revealed!

After the reveal of the first wave of LEGO Technic sets for 2018, it seems that LEGO still has plenty of sets hidden under its sleeve. Dutch toy store BrickFever has uploaded official images of four additional LEGO Technic sets slated for next year. The best one in my opinion is the faithful representation of the behemoth of the Mack Anthem (42078). From  a distance, it’s kind of hard not to think of it as an actual truck. Check out the rest of these images.

First Responder (72075); List Price: €35.99

 

 

 

Hovercraft (72076); List Price: €62.99

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.

Several 2018 LEGO City, Creator and Nexo Knights Sets Are Now Starting to Appear at Toys R Us!

The Brick Show Team was on LEGO hunt earlier today and their search led them to several TRU stores in Florida. To our surprise, we stumbled upon this cool selection of 2018 LEGO Creator, City, and Ninjago Movie sets that are now put on display on TRU’s shelves. First off, we have Jason picking up this haul from TRU in Altamonte Springs consisting some of the 2018 LEGO City sets.
