LEGO Turns ‘The Hands Of Time’ With Its Latest 2017 Ninjago Sets.

We had a teaser of what lies ahead for our teenage Ninjas during this year’s San Diego Comic Con last July, and with LEGO hinting at the gang’s next adventure with its new season entitled ‘The Hands of Time’, we now have a clearer idea on how their next story will unfold. Thanks once again to Hoth Bricks, we now have our official images for LEGO Ninjago’s 2017 sets and they look super sleek together with their latest bunch of slithering baddies. I suspect that LEGO has thrown in a little bit of time travel in this Season 7 of Ninjago which focuses on the lives of Kai, Nya, and their parents. With what seems to be an assortment of jungle-dwelling vermillion creatures in their ancient armor designs, these latest sets may suggest that our heroes are off in a different time period. The nefarious and intimidating look of their latest nemesis as seen in the Dawn of Iron Doom 70626 set is pretty spot on. This is one set that will enter my wishlist for next year. Let’s have a look at the rest of the sets.

Dumbledore… I Mean, Gandalf, Welcomes Another Wizard Into The Fray.

The LEGO Dimensions is all set to welcome another wizard into the portal, and who is best to qualify to do so other than Gandalf. We’re not sure if he accidentally cast an identity switching spell of some sorts upon himself, but it seems that the folks over at Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them are having a hard time being convinced that he is not Dumbledore. Watch LEGO Dimensions latest ‘Meet That Hero’ video featuring none other than the hero of the wizarding world on this side of North America, Newt Scamander. He is the latest hero placed under the LEGO Dimensions spotlight following the likes of Gizmo, B.A. Baracus, and E.T. In this video, Gandalf narrates how Newt ends up causing quite a commotion in New York City, where his fantastic beasts ran loose and were causing a lot of trouble among the locals. With help from his friends and a dash of LEGO humor, retrieving these fantastic beasts can prove to be a great and fun adventure.

Newt comes together with the LEGO Dimensions Fantastic Beasts and Where To Find Them Story Pack (71253) where fans can get to play the whole movie as uniquely told by LEGO. This set follows LEGO Dimensions’ first offering of Story Packs with the 2016 rehash of the Ghostbusters. If you wish to know more about the different packs that falls under Waves 6 and 7 of LEGO Dimensions, you may want to check out this handy visual guide for your reference.

You may also want to check out this pre-order deal from Amazon just in time before the actual film is released in US theaters next week, November 18. I just hope that Dumbledore… ahem, Gandalf finds his way back to Middle Earth.

LEGO Technic Fans Will Receive A Commemorative 40th Anniversary Beam In Each 2017 Technic Set.

This year marks four decades of the LEGO Technic theme, and similar to how LEGO celebrates its 10th year of modular building with the Assembly Square (10255), TLG have come up with a special way of remembering the Technic line in each of its upcoming 2017 set. We’ve seen the first wave of LEGO Technic sets slated for 2017, and with it comes a 40th anniversary commemorative 1×3 beam with the numbers “40 1977-2017” and the iconic gear wheel element.

technic-1x3-40th-commemorative

 

Each 2017 Technic set will have this exclusive piece, and will be prominently shown on its box. Take a look at the Stunt Truck 42059 for example, and see if you can spot the logo on the box, and the actual commemorative beam on its build.

42059-1

There are still a handful of 2017 LEGO Technic sets waiting to be revealed and I hope that LEGO will also come up with a kind of a special, commemorative set to mark the occasion. It will be great if they can re-launch one of their vintage sets from the 70s – that is one great way of celebrating one of LEGO’s longest themes. Well, the AFOL in me can only wish.

2017 LEGO Creator and LEGO Junior Official Images Now Availalble Online.

LEGO seems to be gearing up for the holiday seasons since these official images from the 2017 LEGO Creator and LEGO Juniors theme has been recently uploaded to their servers hinting at the possibility of their availability just in time for Christmas via shop.LEGO.com. Hot off of the heels of their 2017 LEGO Friends, Technic, Nexo Knights, and City reveals, LEGO now gives us a peek on their latest 3-in-1 Creator sets, and several LEGO Juniors sets, that are equally impressive. I personally prefer the Mighty Dinosaurs (31058) and the Fire Patrol Suitcase (10740) over the rest of the sets, but given that there is still a lot that TLG has to reveal, I am willing to hold on to my horses for a while.

More 2017 LEGO Nexo Knights Images!

LEGO unloaded a huge stash of upcoming sets slated to be released in the first half of 2017. Coming from various themes such as Friends, Technic, Nexo Knights and City, there has been a lot of buzz recently on the merits and features of these much talked about sets and now, thanks to Hoth Bricks, we have more images to share particularly from the kingdom of Knighton. Truth be told, there has been several leaked images a couple of days ago regarding these sets but it is only now that we get a closer and much detailed look at their official images.

Another first for our Knights, it’s seems that our heroes get an upgrade from Merlok along with a handful of awesome battle gears, vehicles, and a new way to combine and utilize Nexo Powers. Well, it doesn’t come with a price though, because in the realm of Jestro, a new nemesis rises and they come with a menacing, purple streak. This is one exciting, edge-of-your-seat year for LEGO Nexo Knights!

This Is What We Know So Far About All The LEGO Batman Movie Sets That We’re Revealed.

February seems to be a long wait before our brick-built, black and yellow superhero returns to the big screen. Fan hype is steadily building around the upcoming LEGO Batman Movie, together with the impressive sets that have been revealed alongside the film. So before we swoon over at almost 20 sets and CMF series to be released under this theme, lets pause for a while and look back at what has been revealed so far, and what we can expect further from LEGO before the LEGO Batman Movie comes full swing in February next year.

There has been seven sets, and a polybag that was revealed so far, with the latter not been officially announced yet.

 

The Joker Balloon Escape (70900)

70900-1

 

Mr. Freeze Ice Attack (70901)

70902-1

 

The Batmobile (70905)

70905-1 

 

The Joker’s  Notorious Lowrider (70906)

70906-1 

 

The Scuttler (70908)

70908-1

 

Batcave Break-In (70909)

70909-1

 

Arkham Asylum (70912)

70912-1

As of to date, there are still around 13 sets waiting to be revealed, plus a LEGO Batman Movie CMF series that is rumored to include several DC characters (both heroes and villains) since the classic days of Batman that were alluded in the film. Director Chris McKay made it clear that Warner Bros’ brick-built film will feature a lot of Easter eggs that will showcase almost all key characters from the Batman comicverse.

lego-batman-movie-06

We are also getting a brick-built version of Clayface in Clayface Splat Attack (70904) and it is interesting to note that Brickset has tagged it as a ‘brick-built figure’. Though we don’t have any official images at this point, it is pretty safe to assume that Clayface may look similar to his theatrical version as seen below. We are also getting a bigfig version of the Killer Croc and it seems that he comes in a different color scheme and print as compared from how he looks like in Batman: Killer Croc Sewer Smash (76055).

It also seems that it is not just Will Arnett’s Dark Knight, who is getting a lot of battle ready vehicles, but also some of his rogue villains. We already saw the Joker’s Notorious Lowrider (70906) and Penguin’s ‘Duck and Cover’ ride as seen in the Batcave Break-In (70909) set.  Other villains (and villainess) are also getting their own hot wheels such as Catwoman in the Catwoman Catcycle Chase (70902), the Riddler in The Riddler Riddle Racer (70903) and the posh Penguin’s Limo (70911).

There is also a polybag set that was revealed quite prematurely a few weeks back with the Batman in the Phantom Zone (30522). It features Batman in his new black and yellow minifigure form together with a robot-like contraption. As per request of LEGO, we’ve removed any reference to the said image, assuming that the polybag may have something to do with an important plot in the film. We do not have any information yet on how devoted LEGO Batman fans may obtain this polybag. We expect that this will be a hot item since this is definitely one of the cheapest ways of obtaining your own LEGO Batman minifigure.

This is so far what we know regarding the LEGO Batman Movie sets and we’ll keep you posted for other news and updates regarding this next LEGO movie hit. The LEGO Batman Movie will land on theaters worldwide starting February 10, 2017.

First Look At 2017 LEGO Nexo Knights, Technic, and Friends Sets!

A few minutes ago, Brickset has just revealed a huge load of upcoming 2017 LEGO Friends, Nexo Knights, and Technic sets all for our viewing pleasure. These sets have been initially mentioned in one more of our previous posts, but this is the first time that we are getting official images. I certainly dig the newest LEGO Nexo Knights sets with all the new characters (baddies in particular) that are introduced, and the possibilities of combining Nexo Powers. The latest wave of Technic sets focus more on sports vehicles, throwing in some pullback action among selected sets. The Friends theme now gets another wave of pet store mania, with impressive small builds and new pieces. Take a look.

REMINDER: LEGO Nexo Knights Monster TRU Building Event is on November 12.

Just a quick reminder to add this to your calendar. The Toys R Us Toy Book 2016 has already been released and with it the announcement of another LEGO promotional. A LEGO Nexo Knights Building Event is slated to take place on November 12 next Saturday from 12PM to 2PM at all TRU stores nationwide. The said building event allows children 6 years old and above to build and take home a FREE LEGO Nexo Knights monster and a chance gather several Nexo Powers inside the store through the Merlok 2.0 app.

lego-nexo-knights-monster-build-2

If you recall, a similar promotional happened across TRU stores in Germany, where we saw the polybag’s pretty neat building instructions in its booklet form. The TRU LEGO Nexo Knights monster comes in at 58 pieces and its build bears close resemblance to a battle-ready LEGO Mixels Infernite that may easily pass as Burnzie’s smaller cousin. 70322_alt8

 

Remember, like any other promotional, this free LEGO Nexo Knights monster set is only available while supplies last. Plus the fact that this TRU build and take home event is only for 2 hours, expect that this set will immediately be out of stock.
