LEGO Unveils Its New Line Of DC Comics Superheroes Mighty Micros Sets For 2017 Ahead of San Diego Comic-Con.

2017 might micros_02 2017 might micros_03

LEGO just recently announced via its Facebook page that we’ll be seeing more of its adorable chibi-sized LEGO Mighty Micros just in time for another great set of reveals at the 2016 San Diego Comic-Con (SDCC) next month.

https://www.facebook.com/plugins/post.php?href=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.facebook.com%2FLEGO%2Fposts%2F10153795064888403&width=500

LEGO is known for featuring new sets and memorabilia during the said annual comic convention, and this time, excitement is building on what LEGO will unveil at the San Diego Convention Center come by July 21 to 24. Featuring the cute and miniaturized versions of our iconic DC superheroes together with their arch enemies, LEGO is expected to feature each of them during the SDCC. However, it is wise to keep our hands to ourselves since these LEGO Mighty Micros will not be available in the market until its launch day sometime next year. This confirms that LEGO has more in store for us with the Mighty Micros theme until 2017, and more so  under the DC Super Heroes banner.

Retailing next year at $9.99 each, these Mighty Micros feature classics such as Batman and Killer Moth, Wonder Woman VS Doomsday, and Superman VS Bizaaro as reported by The Hollywood Reporter.  Batman is featured in his classic caped crusader outfit together with the retro Batcopter, as he squares off with Killer Moth’s bug mobile. LEGO’s clever use of clear, transparent bricks outlines Wonder Woman’s Invisible Jet as she faces the might of Doomsday. Finally, Superman battles his bizarre doppelganger, Bizarro, who now happens to be made available in a set rather than as a SDCC exclusive.

Feast Your Eyes On Brickworld Chicago 2016’s World Of Lights!

1432651152-banner

This year’s Brickworld Chicago may have already been concluded, but the awe-inspiring LEGO MOCs and original creation by some of the country’s top LEGO Master Builders continue to linger on. One of the most memorable highlights of the 2-day event was the accustomed World of Lights presentation, usually held during the last night (which falls on a Saturday) of Brickworld when all of the program’s visitors have gone home already. This is a rare sight indeed, since only a few get to witness this.

brickworld mosaic

The magic begins once the overhead lights of the Convention Center conference hall are turned off. Fitted with LED light strips, these MOC masterpieces become a one-of-a-kind festival of lights. Thankfully, Jason and the rest of the Brick Show team were there to witness the unveiling. Watch this.

These light-fitted MOCs were all equally impressive. However, I have to say that the LEGO Big Ben and Buckingham Palace MOCs are outstanding. Nick Jensen also had the rare opportunity of witnessing Brickworld’s World of Lights as you can see from some of his shots below. You may visit Nick’s Flickr page for more images of Brickworld Chicago and its World of Lights.

Take A Look At The LEGO Inside Tour 2016 Exclusive Set.

Inside-Tour

The last tour of this year’s famed LEGO Inside Tour has been finally concluded, and with it comes the exciting reveal of this year’s exclusive set that will leave its mark in the annals of LEGO history. Being a unique LEGO experience on its own held at the company’s headquarters in Billund, Denmark, the 2-day LEGO Inside Tour allows guests – 140 in all, divided into four groups – to see for themselves how LEGO bricks are made, to chat with top notch set designers, and to have an exclusive tour of the Ole Kirk Kristiansen’s original house and relive the humble beginnings of the most valued toy company in the world. You’ll also be delighted to know that LEGO managed to preserve their previous sets that they keep in their astounding vault.

Here’s what TLG has to say about the LEGO Inside Tour.

What is LEGO Inside Tour?

LEGO Inside Tour provides a unique look into the LEGO Group often referred to as ‘a once–in-a-lifetime experience’. You are invited inside Ole Kirk Kristiansen’s original house, featuring an extraordinary exhibition of LEGO sets and models that date back to 1934. You will meet LEGO employees and especially LEGO designers, who will introduce you to their daily work at the LEGO Group, and you will take part in a unique building experience together with LEGO designers. Part of the LEGO Inside Tour consists of a factory tour, where you can see how LEGO bricks are produced. LEGO Inside Tour also stops at the LEGO staff shop.

At the end of the tour, you will receive a unique gift exclusively produced in close cooperation with Kjeld Kirk Kristiansen especially for this year’s LEGO Inside Tour participants.

The LEGO Group’s headquarters are based in Billund, Denmark, and here the LEGO Inside Tour will take place. Starting point of the 2-day tour is Hotel LEGOLAND®

So before we dive in to see the details of this year’s exclusive set, it is necessary to have a proper, insider perspective about the LEGO Inside Tour experience and to have a better appreciation of it. We’re fortunate to stumble upon an excellent piece written by Ms. Sophie of LCC Builders where she shared her once-in-a-lifetime experience of being a part of the LEGO Inside Tour. Be sure to check out her story right here.

This year’s LEGO Inside Tour is dedicated to the world’s largest and most beautiful LEGO truck ever made – the LEGO Truck Show (4000022). Thanks to Ms. Sophie for sharing these pictures of the LEGO Truck Show. Take a look.

AFOL couple Daniel and Oriel Tsou from Singapore was fortunate enough to be a part of the first group who joined in this year’s LEGO Inside Tour. As soon as the last tour was concluded, they uploaded an excellent unboxing and review video of the LEGO Truck Show via their YouTube channel. Watch this.

For those of you who will keep a close watch for next year’s LEGO Inside Tour, be on the lookout this October and November since they usually open the registration for this special LEGO program as early as these months. Be sure to visit the LEGO Inside Tour webpage for more updates.

Kylo Ren Is Such A Fanboy In This Latest LEGO Star Wars: The Force Awakens Character Vignette.

kylo ren fanboy

With less than a week before the release of the much awaited LEGO Star Wars: The Force Awakens video game, Warner Bros UK recently uploaded its fourth character vignette, and this time the spotlight is now focused on the volatile and uber fanboy, Kylo Ren. If you recall, Kylo Ren comes as the next featured character vignette from Warner Bros following the likes of Poe Dameron, Finn, and BB-8. Living under the shadow of your idol or that of someone else can sometimes get the best out of you as you can see from the video below. But before that, here’s what WB UK has to say about their latest character spotlight.

Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment today released the next video in a series of LEGO Star Wars: The Force Awakens character vignettes spotlighting Kylo Ren, the dark warrior who commands the First Order. The video showcases Kylo Ren’s LEGO character in full form through key gameplay moments, cinematic cutscenes and authentic audio, all with signature LEGO humour. The vignette also features original dialogue recorded by actor Adam Driver, who plays the role of Kylo Ren in the Star Wars: The Force Awakens film.

The LEGO Star Wars: The Force Awakens video game is scheduled to be released on June 28, 2016 on all major gaming platforms. However, if you want to try out and have a feel of the game first before making your purchase, Warner Bros Interactive is giving away a free-to-download Niima Outpost Demo available both for the Xbox One and Playstation 4.

In a similar note, LEGO has also released a video spot on one of the most iconic gangster in the Star Wars galaxy.  Jabba’s Palace Character Pack comes as a GameStop promotional if you pre-order the main game through their channels.
