LEGO Disney Castle Selling Out Fast!


As I’m sure many of you now know, the Disney Castle set first revealed back in July 2016 is now available to the public.

This set has proven to be a huge deal in the media, with many news outlets completely unrelated to LEGO covering it in detail, which makes sense due to the immense appeal of such an iconic image being made into LEGO.

That being said, perhaps the hype for this set was a little too extreme, as the product is already out of stock on the US LEGO Shop Online:


Whilst the castle is still available in the UK, you might have to go and visit the local LEGO Store directly if you hope to grab one of these over in the US, and even that seems unlikely as there’s many reports of the set being sold out in stores as well. What with this being a LEGO Exclusive I wouldn’t expect to find it in any other retail stores either…

Of course, the secondary market is also a possibility (sites such as eBay could be a viable option for getting the set) but the castle will be well above the retail price if so.

That being said, I’m sure that LEGO will very soon have the set back in stock, but we’ll have to wait and see how long that takes.

Perhaps you guys are a little too popular…

This shows that the set really is immensely popular due to the press it has gathered, and I’m sure LEGO would prefer to not have enough that have them ligning the shelves with no-one buying them!

Keep an eye out on LEGO Shop Online to see when the set becomes available again.

All LEGO Star Wars Rogue One Sets Finally Revealed!

Following the reveal of two of LEGO Star Wars’ newest sets, now comes the release of more playsets and buildable figures that celebrates the anthology film, Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. LEGO has now pulled off the veil from its much talked about (and leaked) Rogue One sets via its Facebook page. With a total of five sets based on Rogue One’s vehicles, and three buildable figures to boot, it is expected that these latest additions will hit store shelves by September 30 as part of Force Friday’s highlights.

Two LEGO Star Wars Rogue One Sets Finally Revealed!

Earlier this month, LEGO Star Wars fans were in a frenzy once again when Amazon France listed the much talked about Rogue One sets including their official images. However, the LEGO Group was quick to shoot its laser blasters, having the listing and images removed from Amazon’s sites since it was quite premature to reveal them.

However, just a few hours ago, LEGO seems to have finally lifted the veil (aka embargo) on some of these Rogue One sets and has now been featured by USA Today in connection with Disney and Star Wars’ release of Rogue One: A Star Wars Story to hit theaters December 16. Since the Amazon leak early this August, we already have an idea on how these LEGO Rogue One sets look like. Now that two of these have been officially released, we can be pretty sure that the rest will be unveiled by LEGO anytime soon.

Take a look at these first two offerings from the LEGO Star Wars Rogue one line:

 

Imperial Assault Hovertank 75152

This set comes in 385 pieces, including the awesome blind warrior Chirrut Imwe and two Imperial Hovertank Pilots. The LEGO Star Wars Imperial Assault Hovertank is expected to retail at $29.99.

Rebel U-Wing Fighter 75155

If you have seen the Rogue Trailer already, it’s difficult not to notice one of the Resistance’s major starships. As we can surmise from the trailer video, the Rebel U-Wing Fighter will probably make an appearance on certain key plot lines. It’s kind of cool for LEGO to include this in the roster of its Star Wars sets. Set 75155 comes in a total of 659 pieces, with five minifigures to boot: the space monkey Bistan,  Jyn Erso, Cassian Andor, a Rebel Trooper and U-Wing Pilot. The set is expected to retail at $69.99

We’ll keep you posted once the rest of the Rogue One sets are revealed, hopefully before September 30’s Force Friday event. What do you think about these? Are you excited to have them?

LEGO Star Wars Death Star 75159 Lands on the Page of the October LEGO Store Calendar.

After the “unofficial” unveiling of the LEGO Star Wars Death Star 75159 at the Arundel Mills LEGO Store in Maryland, the much talked-about UCS set now graces the cover of LEGO’s October Store Calendar. Found via Reddit, the said calendar states that the said rehash of the famed 2008 version of the LEGO Death Star will be exclusively available beginning September 30 at all LEGO brand stores and shop.LEGO.com.

We’re still waiting for LEGO’s official press release about the LEGO Star Wars UCS Death Star 75159. It’s sure interesting on how The LEGO Group will describe this set. Stay tuned here at the Brick Show for more LEGO news and updates.

LEGO Mixels Will Come To An End In 2017.

It might be another piece of sad news for LEGO fans. After the recent curtain call for one of LEGO’s longest running original theme which is LEGO Bionicle, Brickset has reported that another of LEGO’s theme sets may also be axed by next year. According to Jordan Reichek, Supervising Producer for Cartoon Network, the LEGO and Cartoon Network collaboration will finally come to an end, with its last episode to premiere next month.

LEGO / CARTOON NETWORK, “MIXELS”-
SHOWS FINISHED AND DELIVERED…LAST EPSIODE PREMIERS IN SEPTEMBER.
THANKS CARTOON NETWORK AND LEGO! GREAT FUN!

Though the conclusion of the Mixels TV show does not necessarily indicate or confirm that LEGO’s line of themed tribes will also be put to an end, it should be noted, however, that The LEGO Group has not offered any new series under the Mixels line after the debut of its Series 9 last February during the New York Toy Fair. Frankly speaking, the Mixels line was not as popular as compared to LEGO’s other themed sets. Perhaps due primarily to the fact that the TV series is viewed more like a comedy, slapstick kind of show, its corresponding LEGO sets were also viewed and treated similarly as a collection of weird brick-built oddities. I guess looking back, the Mixels line may have been welcomed differently by the LEGO community if they were given a different perspective or sort of ‘personality’.

To be fair, LEGO Mixels are one of those collectible themes that offer great value for your money. Being a price friendly brick-built collectible, it offers plenty of unique pieces that kids and AFOLs may find pretty useful. I also find its complimentary website as a very helpful springboard in encouraging young builders to explore the limitless possibilities of coming up with his/her own unique builds and have it shared with the rest of the online community. Personally, I love the fun creativity of these sets which offers the most number of options for creating your own ‘Mix’ or ‘Murp’.

mixel tribes

Like any other LEGO themes that were put to an end, we hope that the LEGO Mixels will be replaced by another equally fun, and low-cost collectible sets. We’re certain that LEGO has something in store for us so we have to wait and see a little longer.

How do you feel about this news? Are you disappointed as well? Do you think it’s a good judgment call for LEGO to pull the plug on its Mixels line? Share us your thoughts in the comments section below, or join in the discussion via our Facebook page.
