Moko Does It Again With This Mecha Mickey Robo

When it comes to creative LEGO mechs, Master Builder Moko never runs out of wild ideas. From a transforming LEGO brick to a futuristic Mechatrobot, his creations never cease to surprise us with its simplicity and impressive articulation. So just imagine what happens when he gets his first LEGO Disney minifigures set – well, the result is one seriously hilarious mashup of Disney magic and action-packed Japanese anime. Enter the Mecha Mickey Robo.

Over at his Japanese blogsite, Moko confessed how excited he is upon getting his new Mickey Mouse minifigure, that he has to come up with a mecha build that is a fitting tribute to the most popular mouse on the face of the planet. Building on the charm and simplicity of Mickey, Moko came up with a down-to-earth, but pleasantly attractive Mecha Mickey Robo to complement the iconic character. If you’re familiar with Nintendo’s Kirby and his most recent game Kirby Robobot, you may have a pretty good grasp on where Moko is coming from.

Similar to his other builds, Moko’s trademark emphasis on articulation is very well seen in his Mickey Robo build. He also plans to make a similar ride both for Minnie and Donald Duck anytime soon. Just imagine a battalion of all your LEGO Disney minifigures on top of their own awesome mechs. That is one set that we will really look forward to. Just imagine how Ursula or Maleficent’s rides will be…So if you want to see more of Moko’s work or give him a compliment or two for his builds, you may drop him a note over his Flickr account or head over his blogsite.

LEGO Star Wars Rebel Combat Frigate 75158 Revealed!

75158_01

 

We now have our first images of another 2016 LEGO Star Wars set that will hit stores later in the summer. Similar to Batman: Rescue from Ra’s al Ghul (76056), this new Star Wars set was not revealed during the New York Toy Fair earlier this year.  LEGO Star Wars Rebel Combat Frigate 75158 is based on the Pelta-class frigate Phoenix Home as seen in the first episode of Season 2 of Disney XD’s Star Wars Rebels.

75158

75158_01

 

Thanks again to Jacob_9821 from Eurobricks who also gave us as our first images of the LEGO Marvel Super Heroes Tanker Truck Takedown 76067, we now have our first look at this new Star Wars Rebels set 75158. Consisting of 938 pieces, the set comes with a newer minifigure version of  Ahsoka Tano, C1-10P (Chopper), Ezra Bridger, Captain Sato and Agent Kallus. The Ahsoka Tano minifigure in this set also seems to have a new face print and is now updated with new trans-blue pieces for her dual lightsabers. We do not have any pricing mentioned as of the moment, but given that it is the second largest set from LEGO’s 2016 Summer set releases, the first being LEGO Star Wars Captain Rex’s AT-TE 75157 with 972 pieces, we could expect a price range anywhere between $99 to $119.

The Rebel Combat Frigate 75158, along with the fourth Captain America Civil War set 76067, is expected to be another retailer exclusive.

LEGO Opens World’s Largest Flagship Store in Shanghai, China

Last Wednesday marked the opening of the world’s largest LEGO store in Shanghai Disney Resort in China with the hope of attracting more customers once the Disney theme park opens in June. According to LEGO Shanghai store’s General Manager Jacob Kragh, China had been one of the best performing markets last year that saw an increase of more than 30% of sales in LEGO products. LEGO’s presence is keenly felt in this part of China, especially considering that the company has plans of setting up its first factory in Jiaxing, which is expected to be operational by 2017 employing 2,000 personnel. Construction of the factory has already begun since 2014.

The massive two-storey, 1,000 square-meter Lego store features models ranging from a giant dragon, well-known Disney and Marvel characters, and the twelve signs of the Chinese zodiac. Here’s a look at some of the sights in and around the world’s largest LEGO Store courtesy of Reuters and China News.

Considering the amount of attention LEGO is giving to the Chinese market, it will not take long before we see other LEGO Stores setup in the country. This might be a good way of counteracting the selling and distribution of certain Chinese-made, LEGO-like knock-offs, especially if LEGO can lower the costs of their sets within the area. Here’s a look of some of the promotions as seen from the store’s May and June calendar, as uploaded by a local LEGO Store visitor Capitalism Village (I hope Google Translate got this right).

LEGO p1 LEGO p2 LEGO p3 LEGO p4 LEGO p5 LEGO p6 LEGO p7 LEGO p8

The store’s calendar didn’t hold back in its promotion, featuring some of the larger sets that LEGO has just released recently, including this year’s LEGO Star Wars UCS Attack on Hoth (75098), 2015’s LEGO Star Wars UCS Tie Fighter (75095), and  Imperial Assault Carrier (75106). It also featured sets from different names such as the DC Comics Batman Classic TV Series – Batcave (76052), Ninjago Temple of Airjitzu (70751), and Ghostbusters Firehouse Headquarters (75827). There’s also a promotion for what seems to be some Nexo Knights and Friends polybags, plus a corner for the LEGO Nexo Knights Merlok 2.0 app.

So what do you think about this development? Are you excited to pay this LEGO Store a visit? Share us your thoughts in the comments section below.

2016 Summer LEGO Star Wars, Friends, and Creator Sets Are Now Available at LEGOLAND Germany Ahead Of Its Official Release

lego-starwars-legoland1lego-friends-legoland0

It seems that there will be plenty of happy LEGO fans in Germany since the much awaited 2016 Summer LEGO sets have finally landed over at LEGOLAND Allee in Günzburg, Germany. The guys of Promobricks took some time-off to pay LEGOLAND Allee a visit, and they were delightfully surprised to see the much talked about 2016 Summer LEGO sets, specifically those from Star Wars, Friends and Creator lineups are now on display at the theme park’s store shelves ahead of its official release.

LEGO announced earlier during the New York Toy Fair that the above mentioned sets will be released in the US sometime in August, while both Amazon UK and Amazon Japan have already listed these sets for pre-order to be released during the first week of June in their localities. Here are some of the images that Promobricks have snapped inside the store of LEGOLAND Allee in Germany.

Master The Force with These Building Instructions for TRU’s Build and Take Home LEGO Micro Millennium Falcon

May the 4th may well be over, but it doesn’t mean we can’t relive the fun in building our own piece of LEGO Star Wars history. So in case you missed out on LEGO Store’s May the 4th “Escape the Space Slug” exclusive, you’ll be happy to know that you can build one on your own through these building instructions shared with us by Promobricks.

On a similar note and as their share of joining in the Star Wars Day festivities, all Toys R Us stores in the US launched a LEGO Build and Take Home exclusive last Saturday May 7, a week later after TRU stores in Canada launched a similar event. The exclusive 44-piece LEGO build to be taken home for qualifying participants (children ages below 14) is a mini-build of the Star Wars Millennium Falcon. It’s a pretty simple build consisting of relatively common pieces, but considering that this is given away for free (and of course It’s LEGO), the appeal is irresistible. Understandably, it doesn’t come in a polybag but TRU was kind enough to throw in a Star Wars booklet and a poster.

LEGO-Star-Wars-Toys-R-Us-Event-May-7-2016-Flyer-640x689 s-l500 tru-millennium-falcon-micro-event-2016

 

If you are into mini or micro-scale building, then you will also be happy to know that the building instructions for this Millenium Falcon is now available to download, thanks to the folks over at Hoth Bricks. Coming at 44 pieces, this particular rendition is quite easy to build, and everything that you need for this mini-build may already be stashed underneath your pile of bricks. These will also come in cheap over at Bricklink if you want to replicate the model exactly as it is. Here’s a scanned image of the building instructions as shared by Hoth Bricks. You may also download a higher resolution copy from the site’s Flickr page.

TRU_LEGO Millenium Falcon Building Guide

For the uber serious collector who will only settle for the original as they were given away in TRU, you may always head over at eBay in case someone will list these exclusives up for grabs.

First LEGO Ideas Review for 2016 Now On its Way – Nine Projects Qualify

Hasan Jensen of the LEGO Ideas Team has recently announced the end of the First 2016 LEGO Ideas Review qualifying period Monday morning, 12AM Central European Summer Time (in the US that is 6PM on May 1, last Sunday), showcasing the nine LEGO Ideas entries that have hit 10,000 votes among the LEGO community.

Among these nine entries, four were inspired by the movies taking their cues from films such as Jurassic Park (1993), Star Wars (2015), and Short Circuit (1986), others are of modular types, and two science-themed builds based on an archaeological museum and particle accelerator – all voted upon by members of the LEGO Ideas community between the months of January and May of this year. Just in time to make it to the finish line is PepaQuin’s Johnny Five robot which garnered the necessary votes just in time before the end of the qualifying period.

The people have spoken, so let’s see what the guys over at the LEGO Review Board has to say about them. These are all great sets, with the Rolling BB-8 from mjsmiley and arbot138 closest to our hearts. Let’s go back and visit these entries once more, and what their creators have to say. Be sure to click on the sets’ names if you wish to see additional pics from these entries.

Who do you think will win the nod from the LEGO Review Board? Share your personal favorites in the comments section that will follow.

Fossil Museum by whatpumpkin

Fossil Museum

This set attempts to capture that magnificent museum experience in a small display featuring four popular dinosaurs (and one popular pterosaur) in skeletons as accurate as I could achieve at this scale. The genuses are:

  • Stegosaurus
  • Pteranodon
  • Apatosaurus
  • Two Deinonychus
  • Spinosaurus

Additionally, a paleontologist and a family of three are in the exhibit, to stand in awe at the creatures before them. Five plaques on the exhibit theoretically display the name of the species, though at this scale actually doing so would be difficult. Each dinosaur has a reasonable amount of articulation, if you wish to pose them in your own way when on display, or if you wish to have some dino skeletons duking it out. The skeletons are not white, because from my experience they rarely are. Fossils in museums are usually varying shades of tan and brown, so I did my best to choose the most fitting tone I could. This set has 599 pieces.

 

Gingerbread House by Swan Dutchman

Gingerbread House

There are some great sets available to make a Christmas village… and every year there is a new set to expand it. Wouldn’t it be nice to expand your village with a gingerbread house?

This gingerbread house is almost edible: it’s made of cookie walls, decorative icing, candy and caramelized windows. And why not? You can even put a light inside to brighten things up. Mind your teeth though with this cookie house: bricks are a bit chewy.

 

Jedi High Council Chamber by lojaco

Jedi High Council

The Jedi High Council Chamber on Coruscant, the room where the jedi masters meet during the rule of the Galactic Republic.

With this model you will be able to reconstruct the decisive moments of the second Star Wars trilogy (Ep. I, II & III): from the first meeting with the little Anakin, to the growth of the Dark Side of the Force with the unborn Darth Vader.

A setting that can be populated by characters that are gradually collected with other Lego Star Wars sets, but already enriched with some unreleased knights and/or one new  “Transparent-Light-Blue” minifigure (to act as hologram of a Jedi knight away).

The set, with sliding doors mechanically operated, can be enriched with a LEGO Power Functions Light item (ref. 8870) to create glowing pushing buttons.

 

Jurassic Park Visitor Center by LDiEgo

Jurassic Park Visitor Center

The biggest set in a utopian Jurassic Park Theme would be the Visitor Center. This project features a complex building in the facade, as well as some rooms inside to recreate every scene in the movie:

  • Main entrance hall, with two brick built skeletons: a Sauropod and a Tyrannosaurus.
  • “Les Gigantes” restaurant, with gift shop.
  • Kitchen.
  • V.I.P. Dining Room
  • Emergency bunker
  • Showcase theatre
  • Control room
  • Genetics lab with cold storage room

The rooms can be hinged or detached for a better play experience. There is also space for a secret compartment at the main entrance, under the stairs. Minifigures included are:

  • John Hammond
  • Tim Murphy
  • Lex Murphy
  • Donald Gennaro
  • Ray Arnold
  • Robert Muldoon
  • And “The Big One” molded raptor (A.K.A. “Clever Girl”) 

It has 2,623 pieces and measures  43.1cm X 28cm X 20.7cm

 

Modular Train Station by LegoWolf

Modular Train Station

Add your favourite locomotive to your Lego modular street with a train station! To fit in with the early twentieth century look of other buildings in the series, this model takes inspiration from nineteenth century stations in Europe. These structures were cathedrals to industry, marrying classical stonework and statuary with technological innovations like all-glass roofs. Many of these stations are still in use and have been renovated over the decades, bringing in advances like electric lights and RFID cards.

Features:

  • The platform at the back lets you lay track in the same direction as your street, so that your diorama can fit in a compact space. The platform height is sized for standard Lego trains.
  • There is equal detail on front and back, which is unusual for modular buildings.
  • The roof and upper back wall detach, exposing the vaulted interior for play.
  • The focal point inside is the ornate clock and timetable, which features replaceable letters so that you can set your own destinations.
  • The interior features a ticketing office, ticket vending machine, newspaper box, snack bar, public toilets, and turnstiles leading to the platform.
  • The exterior features statuary, decorative moulding and brickwork, and arched glass windows. There is a bicycle rack for couriers in the front, along with public notice boards.
  • A snack bar opens onto the interior and the station platform, because captive customers are profitable customers!
  • Minifigures include: Ticket Vendor, Snack Seller, Businesswoman Commuter, and Bicycle Courier.

It comes in approximately 3000 bricks, measuring at 10 inches in width, 10 inches in depth, and 12 inches in height (25.5cm X 25.5cm X 30cm)

 

Old Fishing Store by robenanne

Old Fishing Store

Robenanne’s Old Fishing Store takes its cue from LEGO’s line-up of Christmas modular sets. The building consists of roughly 2160 parts and three floors: the main store, office, and lookout. The choice of brown and sand green gives it a realistic feeling. It comes with an add-on Dock with buoy and fishing boats, and a Boat Repair Shop. The dock and buoy have about 545 bricks.

It also includes:

  • Three minifigures: Fisherman, Store Keeper, and Captain.
  • Creature elements such as mini fish, crab, starfish, and snow owl.
  • Other pieces include flicking hooks, bottles, baits, fishing poles, barrels, treasure chest, dive mask, dive, tanks, chains and a whole lot fishing materials and equipments.

 

Particle Accelerator by JKBrickworks

Particle Accelerator

Help these intrepid scientists with their quest to find the (Mini)Figgs Boson! Or maybe just to find out what a 2×4 LEGO brick is made of.

This working particle accelerator uses a simple system of spinning wheels to accelerate a LEGO ball around a ring. Although the propulsion system is different than that of a real particle accelerator, it’s a great way to illustrate the concept. Not to mention, it is fun to play with. Multiple balls can be inserted simultaneously and obstacles can be introduced for the ball(s) to collide with.

The set could be scaled anywhere from the basic accelerator and ring (which combined are only 170 pieces) all the way up to a fully styled installation like the one I have designed. The inclusion of a small control room with a few minifig scientists would also be a nice addition and add to the play value.

 

Rolling BB-8!! by mjsmiley and artbot138

Rolling BB-8

This unique BB-8 was designed with the primary goal of being able to move with his head staying up on top.  The entire model was made using 100% Genuine Lego parts.  His shells were of course carefully painted (and if this model is approved and created by Lego, the parts would come printed as so many Lego parts are).  Inside you’ll find Lego weights suspended from the central axle that bolsters up two Lego magnets.  Those magnets are held up close to the top of the ball and attract the two magnets built into BB-8’s head.  The head uses a cockpit dome (painted), hinge parts, and the smallest Lego wheels to skate on top of the body.  The body’s shell started out as Tatooine from the Lego Star Wars Planet series.  The total part count is around 180 pieces.

This Rolling BB-8 is super fun to fidget with, roll about, and satisfies a midpoint between static model and full on electric RC.  It would make a great addition to any LEGO or Star Wars Fan’s collection!

  • Features an accurately rendered LEGO BB-8 that actually rolls.
  • This Model is able to roll on a single axis while keeping BB-8’s Head up on Top!
  • BB-8 Comes with attachable arms for both his Electric Zapper and Thumbs-up Torch abilities.
  • BB-8 has a desert base station that uses a turn crank to demonstrate his rolling ability.
  • The base station has a compartment to hold BB-8’s accessories.

 

Johnny Five by PepaQuin

Johnny Five

 

Number 5, a.k.a. Johnny Five, is the hero of the Short Circuit movies. Number 5 was one of five prototype robots, but after being struck by lightning gained a sense of awareness and free will. The multitude of his expressive abilities, combined with a youthful demeanor and thirst for knowledge (need more input!), made him an instant favorite with audiences in the 80’s.

This small model attempts to replicate the sense of wonder that the robot often displayed. It stands around 7″ tall and is very flexible. Arms, torso, head, and even ‘eyebrows’ can be posed however desired. Also featured are a retracting shoulder-mount and freely moving treads. 

Number 5 contains approximately 300 pieces, making this an ideal mid-range set.

 

Congratulations to those who made it in the first LEGO Review Stage for this year! The results of the third 2015 LEGO Ideas Review will be out in a few weeks, so be sure to stay tuned here in the Brick Show to find out who among the nine aspirants from 2015 will make it to become the next official LEGO Ideas set.

Third 2015 LEGO Ideas Review

LEGOLAND Florida Releases Official Trailer for “LEGO Nexo Knights 4D: The Book of Creativity”

NK4D_05

LEGOLAND in Florida will be launching a new 4D film following the success of its immersive theatrical attraction LEGO Movie 4D a New Adventure earlier this year. Starting May 26, park guests – children and adults alike – will have a one-of-a-kind experience of “downloading” themselves into the kingdom of Knighton and joining Merlok 2.0 and the band of Nexo Knights as they thwart the plans of Jestro and his Book of Monsters from acquiring the most powerful magic book yet – the Book of Creativity.

To give the audience a peek at what will happen on LEGO Nexo Knights 4D: The Book of Creativity, the brick-built theme park recently launched its official trailer. Watch this.

Looking at the trailer, it seems that Jestro manages to snatch the ‘Book of Creativity’ (it’s kind of neat to see the classic LEGO brick on the book’s cover jacket – it’s a cool way to graphically convey creativity), and feeding it to the Book of Monsters, upgrading its infamous power exponentially! The NEXO Knights are really in a tight spot on this one.

NK4D_03 NK4D_06 NK4D_02 NK4D_04

Aside from the uniquely immersive 12-minute 4D experience, LEGOLAND visitors and avid gamers who are hooked into playing the LEGO Nexo Knights Merlok 2.0 mobile app game, will be absolutely thrilled to know that LEGOLAND offers six scannable NEXO Powers not found anywhere else.

Here’s what LEGOLAND Florida Resort has to say about their latest 4D attraction:

Guests can download themselves into an all-new “4D” film experience starring the LEGO® NEXO KNIGHTS™ at LEGOLAND® Florida Resort starting Thursday, May 26, 2016. It’s an immersive, animated adventure created especially for LEGOLAND Parks and LEGOLAND Discovery Centers around the world.

It’s up to the LEGO NEXO KNIGHTS to defeat the evil Jestro, the Book of Monsters and their Lava Monsters all set in a “4D” world — think wind, water and fog — bringing the battle to life all around the theater. Plus, guests can go on a quest of their own to discover six shields hidden across the theme park to unlock exclusive “power ups” for the LEGO NEXO KNIGHTS Merlok 2.0 mobile app.

Set in the futuristic world of Knighton, “LEGO NEXO KNIGHTS: The Book of Creativity” follows five young knights in their quest to defeat Jestro, the Book of Monsters and all their Lava Monsters. Led by heroic Clay Moorington, the band of knights join forces with the great digital wizard, Merlok 2.0, to vanquish the enemy and stop him getting his devious hands on the powerful and completely unique Book of Creativity — and something never seen before in Knighton.

The brand-new, 12-minute film is the latest way for children to interact with the NEXO KNIGHTS innovative world. More than 170 shields can be found across various touchpoints including online, in LEGO sets and by watching the TV series. The shields can be scanned into the Merlok 2.0 app, upgrading players’ powers to help the knights fight marauding monsters.

Those who already have the app will be delighted at the chance to get exclusive “power ups” at LEGOLAND Florida Resort to enhance their playing prowess. Those who don’t should download before they visit to kick-start an exciting play experience with exclusive content.

“LEGO NEXO KNIGHTS: The Book of Creativity” will play in the theme park’s Wells Fargo Fun Town Theater alongside “The LEGO Movie™ 4D A New Adventure,” another immersive theatrical attraction that opened earlier this year.
