Here Are More Updates From The LEGO DC Comics Rumor Mill!

Last month, we had a sneak peek at LEGO’s massive rumored sets slated to hit next year, including those under the DC Comics line. Thanks to LEGO insiders CM4Sci and Just2good, we now have an idea on how these sets will be like and they all seem to be pretty impressive. Though these are all treated as rumors and speculations, these legends have a pretty good track record when it comes to accurately describing what they see in LEGO’s crystal ball.

Taking hint from DC Comics’ newest line of famous female superheroes and super-villains typified in their teen years, LEGO’s iteration of DC’s Super Hero Girls consists of sets focusing on characters such as that of Batgirl, Lashida, Bumblee, Wonder Woman and Harley Quinn. Here’s how CM4Sci describes them over at Eurobricks.

I’ve seen the sets, and they’re a lot better than I thought they’d be.

General facts:
Each set comes with a small, weird crystal-like villain build. Packaging is blue and sparkly, it looks very nice. There will be a 22-minute TV special, and 6 three-minute shorts. Release in February.

41230 – Batgirl’s Batjet – a small and round Batwing, it actually looks really neat. It uses the round UFO corners as the wings in a dark blue. In front is a pretty well hidden net launcher. Batgirl is in no way final but she’s sitting in the jet. There’s a small buggy for the yellow bad guy, who seems to be holding a phone?

41231 – Harley Quinn’s Cafe Rescue (?) – has a small, two floor cafe build labelled ‘Capes & Cowls’ Harley Quinn is on a flying net shooter with wings. The piece usually used for net launchers is the middle. Steve (is that his name?) is captured in a vine on the top floor. There’s a green crystal baddie included

41232 – The High School! – It looks so cool. It features a giant central tower with stickers that give off the perspective that it’s growing to a sharp point. Each side has a small part of the school with a flex tube used to create a cool design for the window. On top there’s a giant pink diamond. Now, what’s cool about this is that the entire center tower can be opened up to let loose Poison Ivy’s bike that shoots flowers! It creates a giant ramp. I don’t know who the bad guy is but they’re in a small, black/purple flying jet with a giant claw in front, flying towards the pink diamond. There are things like disc shooters to fight off the bad guys. The set comes with Supergirl, Poison Ivy, a creature Poison Ivy has created, Bad Guy, and 2 crystal baddies.

41233 – Lashida’s Action Rider – is in a small wheeled vehicle she sits on that is shoots studs at Krypto’s doghouse (uses Jasmine as a stand-in). Krypto uses a generic Friends dog but I’m sure there’ll be a new piece for him. Comes with Lashida, Krypto, and blue crystal bad creature

41234 – Bumblebee’s Helicopter – has a small spherical, dual rotor helicopter. The crystal guys are carrying a trunk full of yellow stuff. Comes with Bumblebee and two red crystal bad creatures.

41235 – Wonder Woman’s Dorm – has a closet, a bed with window, and a desk in patriotic colors. The transparent motorcycle sits atop a spinning platform. Wonder Woman comes with her lasso and is fighting an orange crystal creature.

The sets honestly look way better than I thought they would be, and the packaging just makes it even better!

 

In a similar vein, Just2good also dropped in his own predictions of what we can expect from LEGO and its partnership with Warner Bros. Pictures. With the film giant steadily building its DC’s Extended Universe, we can also expect the LEGO Group coming up with sets dedicated to these super hero films. We saw how LEGO came up with sets related to that of Superman’s return to the big screen back in 2013 with Man of Steel, particularly with Superman: Metropolis Showdown (76002), Superman: Battle of Smallville (76003) and Superman: Black Zero Escape (76009). The more recent Batman VS Superman: Dawn of Justice also received the LEGO treatment with three sets namely Clash of the Heroes (76044), Kryptonite Interception (76045), and Heroes of Justice: Sky High Battle (76046). This time, Just2good pulls off the veil a little and gives us a peak on what LEGO has in store with Warner Bros’ next offering with the Amazonian Princess Diana in Wonder Woman. To quote, here’s Just2good’s prediction:

lego-batman-3_wonderwoman_01

We will be getting a Wonder Woman movie set in 2017 – albeit an exclusive (like the Doctor Strange set), but it really makes me happy we’ll be getting at least one. Almost confident it’s minifigure based and under the DC Super Heroes line, but the only facts I know is that it’s coming and its exclusive.

 

That being the case, then this singular, LEGO Wonder Woman set will be LEGO’s second exclusive movie-based offering similar to that of Doctor Strange’s Sanctum Sanctorum (76060). We don’t have any updates yet on what particular scene this LEGO set will depict but we are confident that somebody knows about it out there considering the planning and amount of time required for LEGO designers to come up with a final set.

Finally, just in time before the cinematic version of the Justice League hits theaters in November of 2017, CM4Sci shares another juicy hint:

lego-justice-league-02

Lemme make it even better! We’re not getting one, not two, but THREE JUSTICE LEAGUE sets next summer!

 

CM4Sci’s hint seems to echo what LEGO has come up with in relation to Man of Steel and Batman VS Superman. Again, with regards to how these sets may possibly look like is still a mystery known only to a select few LEGO designers and top brass, most likely kept mum by a strict disclosure agreement. The truth is certainly out there!

So how do you think these sets will look like? What sets are you most excited about? Share us your predictions in the comments below or drop by our Facebook page and join in the discussions.

First Look At LEGO Seasonal Sets Pilgrim (40204) and Christmas Toy Workshop (40205).

A couple of weeks ago we had our first look of one of LEGO’s seasonal sets just in time for the Halloween with the LEGO Vampire and Bat (40203). As it seems, it is customary for these seasonal sets to give us a glimpse on what is next in the series by featuring it at the back of the building instructions.

This time around, Jason from the BrickVibe has recently shared his finds on what is next’s on LEGO’s collectible seasonal sets starting with the Thanksgiving-themed Pilgrim (40204) set. Take a look.

lego-pilgrim-40204

As mentioned, set 40204 is featured at the back of 40203’s building instruction booklet and shows a brick-built figure of a pilgrim seated on what seems to be a pumpkin, enjoying his fill of turkey drumsticks. The LEGO seasonal Pilgrim is expected to hit stores next October retailing at $9.99 same as that of the Vampire and Bat (40203).

Next to the Pilgrim debuts another seasonal collectible that will be a great addition to any Christmas-themed LEGO set. Similarly, Jason managed to get a copy of the LEGO Pilgrim set that gives us a glimpse on the next seasonal set that LEGO will offer probably sometime in November. We do not have an official name for it yet, save for its set number 40205. However, based on how it looks like, we can make a pretty good guess that these are Santa’s workshop elves busy working on some toys.

lego-40205

There is no official word and additional info from LEGO as of the moment on when the Christmas Toy Workshop (40205) will be released, but we can expect that this set will probably retail at the same price range as that of the previous ones before it.

 

LEGO Star Wars Death Star (75159) and Winter Holiday Train (10254) Now Available for VIPs.

It’s September 15, and as mentioned in LEGO’s October Store Calendar, the much awaited Winter Holiday Train (10254) and Star Wars Death Star (75159) is now available for purchase for all LEGO VIP members. Though some LEGO Star Wars fan were not really happy about the rehashed Death Star which takes cue from its predecessor the 10188, LEGO’s intention was to give opportunity for those collectors who missed out on the previous model to own the iconic, planet-zapping, Imperial weapon. Not much has been changed with the design of the Death Star itself, save for some new minifigures that were exclusively added to the set. As we reported previously, the new LEGO Star Wars Death Star (75159) comes in at 4,016 pieces, including 25 minifigures (plus RD-D2 and an Imperial Astromech) and will retail at $500.

75159-1 75159_box1_v39 75159_box5_v39

The LEGO Creator Winter Holiday Train (10254) is the next D2C set that is geared towards fans of advanced train systems. It consists of 734 pieces, 16 curved track pieces which you can combine to make one circular track, and 5 minifigures. The Winter Holiday Train may also be upgraded with LEGO Power Functions (not included in the original set) to create a realistic motorized engine.

10254-1 10254_box1_v39 10254_box5_v39

Though being a VIP member allows you early access to these exclusives, which is great if you are really excited to have your hands working on these sets right away, it is also wise to put these on hold specially that the month of October allows you to earn double VIP points on your purchases. That will be great value for your money, especially if you’re investing on larger sets like the LEGO Star Wars Death Star. However, if you’re really eager to build these sets now, just head over at shop.LEGO.com and start clicking right away.

So are you excited for these LEGO exclusives? Tell us what you about these sets in the comments below and be sure to stay tuned at our YouTube channel for Jason and Stephen’s review of the new LEGO Star Wars Death Star and Winter Holiday Train.

Carl Greatrix, fan designer, and Henrik Andersen, LEGO Designer, share their insights:

“One of the most exhilarating drives I’ve ever had was out on the track in a Caterham Seven. It is brutally fast due to its light weight and tremendous fun to be in. It really struck a chord in my heart that I never forgot”, Carl Greatrix a.k.a. bricktrix_Carl explains as he talks about his love for Caterham cars.

This love turned to inspiration for his future LEGO Caterham model, Carl explains “When I got back into building LEGO car models I thought the shape of the vehicle would lend itself to being modelled well in LEGO bricks as it is very angular and if I could find a suitable scale then I would be able to get all the details into it that I would love to see”.

Henrik Andersen, LEGO designer, shared his enthusiasm for Carl’s work “Carl really did a great job of converting the real car’s shape into a LEGO version as both the sloping front and the hood are really complex”.

LEGO 21307 Caterham Seven 620R Images!

A while back now, a leaked image of the next LEGO ideas set, 21307 Caterham Seven 620R, was released on to the Internet via a (presumably early) copy of a LEGO magazine. This image cause a lot of hype as people discovered that the new LEGO model had indeed kept close to both the Orignal fan model and the Orignal car design itself. I won’t both posting this leaked image here however, because we now have a clearer, much higher quality look at the model to go off instead!


This photo highlights the entire build, which I must say looks brilliant. The uses of multiple curved pieces and tilting techniques really make this thing look elegant yet simple as the real life vehicle does. The small red floor jack builds are also a nice touch.

And as can be expected with all LEGO Ideas sets, a high quality and detailed box houses the set on the shelves:


Whilst these images may be classed as a leak, they are clearly LEGO’s own product images that have simply been compressed. Also, it seems very likely that the model will get revealed in the next few days anyway due to its impending release date.

So what do you think of the new set? Tell us below, and make sure to keep checking back here for all your LEGO news here on The Brick Show!

We already have their official images way back in April, and this time LEGO.com has updated their site to give us a look at how the Max versions of the Trashoz, Nindjas, and Newzers would like. The LEGO Mixels Series 9 consists of:

Trashoz Tribe: Gobbol (41572), Sweepz (41573), Compax (41574)

Here’s Another Wave of 2017 LEGO Star Wars Rumors!

Hot on the heels of the latest sets rumored to be released under the LEGO Marvel Superheroes theme sometime next year, now comes another wave of unconfirmed reports (aka rumors) that fans of the brick-built galaxy far, far away will surely look forward to. We already know that we can expect around 14 new LEGO Star Wars sets to debut next year, and this time around Eurobricks Grand Dukes Klaus Dieter and CM4Sci gave us a few hints on how some of these sets will look like. Though these LEGO insiders have a reputation for stunningly accurate predictions, it is always prudent to bear in mind that these are all speculations until LEGO gives its press release and share to us the sets’ official images. The pictures shown below are for comparative purposes only and do not in any way represent the rumored LEGO sets.

According to Klaus Dieter,

I only can confirm following:

Duel of the Fates (75173)
– Darth Maul, Obi-Wan, Qui-Gon
– Location about same size and style like this year’s Carbon Freezing Chamber, but main colors are black, blue and grey
– It shall symbolize the room where they fight and Qui-Gon dies

lego-duel-of-the-fates

Desert Skiff (75174)
– Han, Chewy, Boba, Skiff Guard
– Only new minifig might be the skiff guard
– Boring since with minor changes it’s exactly the last version

lego-desert-skiff

Landspeeder (75169)
–  Obi-Wan, Luke, 3PO, Tusken Raider
– Boring since with minor changes it’s exactly the last version
– Which is really a shame is that there’s NO BANTHA INCLUDED!!!

75052-landspeeder-500x339

The Phantom (75170) looked like a small version of an Imp. Shuttle and Yoda’s Starfighter (75168) like a dark green version of a regular Jedi Starfighter.

yodaship

The set with Lando (75179) wasn’t shown there. So either it’s a Rogue One set or an exclusive. All RO sets were only shown as black boxes.

 

CM4Sci also offered his observations on how some of the above mentioned sets look and feel.  Though he and Klaus may be describing the same sets, they don’t necessarily share the same thoughts and opinions about them, especially with regards to the Desert Skiff (75174).

From what I saw the Skiff (75174) is very different, it uses flex tube railings on both ends, and the front is made of those curved shell pieces that Exo-Force used. Skiff Guard used the Nadakhan hair. The Sarlacc Pit is also a new build with rounded corners and the oval canopy piece in dark orange.

Thrawn’s torso was white

The Duel (75173) set looked like a round, raised platform with a hole in the middle, one section of curved wall in a corner, and an attached passageway with a function underneath that I assume disables the laser grid in front of Obi-Wan

The Landspeeder (75169) looked close to the 2014 one but the front was a brighter tan, and the thruster engine things on top and on the sides had dark orange R5 heads.

 

So what do you think about these rumors and predications? As exciting as these are with the myriad of LEGO sets that TLG is poised to release, it is still wise to consider these with a grain of salt. Share us your thoughts by dropping us a note in the comments section below.

More Details On The 2017 LEGO Marvel Superheroes Sets.

Last month, we had a glimpse of things to come for LEGO in 2017. Though unconfirmed (unless we hear from LEGO directly or we see the official pictures), we can somehow expect that there will be more than a hundred sets that will debut next year under various active LEGO themes. We already have some them revealed by the LEGO Group a couple of weeks back particularly those from the LEGO Marvel Superheroes line. We know that the Red Hulk was given the LEGO treatment with the Hulk VS Red Hulk (76078) set featuring big figs (of course) of the towering powerhouses coupled with the minifigure versions of the She-Hulk and her counterpart Red She-Hulk.

Another line of uber cute Mighty Micros is also slated to be available next year with the LEGO Marvel Super Heroes Mighty Micros featuring three pairs of the most notable heroes and villains from the Marvel universe.

Recently, Brickset has updated its database by adding what seems to be the official names and set numbers of two of the sets that we reported earlier, with The Brick Fan providing some insight on what could be the sets’ noticeable features.

lego-marvel-2017

Captain America Jet Pursuit (76076) – Includes Steve Rogers Captain America, Ms. Marvel (Kamala Khan), and Super Adaptoid.

 lego-avengers-ms-marvel

Iron Man: Detroit Steel Strikes (76077) – Includes Agent Coulson with Lola, an “All-New, All-Different” Invincible Iron Man armor with his helmet from the Mighty Micros Iron Man vs Thanos (76072) set, and a brick-built Detroit Steel.

lego-detroit-steel

It was also mentioned that there will be a second wave of LEGO sets – with three sets to be exact – dedicated to the MCU sequel, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 which is slated to hit theaters in May of 2017. These 2017 LEGO Marvel Superheroes Guardians of the Galaxy sets is expected to be available just in time of the film’s release.

LEGO 2016 Christmas Ornament Revealed!

German LEGO fan site Promo Bricks has recently shared what seems to be this year’s LEGO Christmas Ornament in the form of a Toy/Tin Soldier. The said Christmas ornament was found at the back of a flyer that was distributed from a LEGO Store in Berlin and is labelled as LEGO Christmas Ornament 5004420 accordingly. The said flyer includes a voucher for the said seasonal collectible which can be claimed together with qualifying purchases in German LEGO Stores starting November 24.

lego-store-berlin-flyerumbau3

We’re still on a lookout for any confirmation from LEGO if and when the 2016 LEGO Christmas Ornament will be available in the US. The LEGO Christmas Toy/Tin Soldier 5004420 is a sure eye catcher, with its bright red and black color motif and Mixel-like google eyes – though the mustache may need a little bit of a tweaking since it looks like our little guy is biting on a bone or something (or perhaps it’s just me looking at it differently).

lego-christmas-ornament-5004420_2

This is one seasonal LEGO décor that any fan will surely have on their Christmas wishlist, and will be a great set to pair up with last year’s 2015 Christmas Ornament – Christmas Tree (5003083). Same as before, this year’s LEGO Christmas décor may either be a VIP exclusive or a promotional set within a limited time. Stay tuned here at Brick Show for more news and updates!

LEGO Releases Latest Videos Dedicated To Its Rogue One Sets.

I guess it’s quite obvious by now that like most LEGO Star Wars fans, we too have been bitten by the ‘Rogue Bug’ – and no were not really talking about a big, nasty, rebellious bug here.

Ever since the release of the relatively underwhelming rehash of the infamous LEGO UCS Star Wars Death Star 75159, the spotlight has now been turned towards a more promising collection that has been causing a lot of buzz recently. Just in time before the first anthology film, Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, hits the big screen in December, LEGO has just revealed its new, highly anticipated collection of brick-built vehicles that will be added to the roster of iconic Star Wars machines.

We had a first look on these very impressive sets, plus an excellent commentary about our initial impressions of them. This time around, LEGO’s official site has received a massive makeover and they now have a dedicated page for their LEGO Star Wars product page including all of the eight Rogue One sets (buildable figures and vehicle sets) revealed a few days ago. The LEGO Star Wars page also features the most memorable vehicles and scenes straight from Episodes I to VI of the Star Wars saga.

To give us a sneak peak about the LEGO Star Wars Rogue One sets’ playability and features, LEGO has recently uploaded a collection of video shorts which you can access by clicking the links below, and first off is the Imperial Assault Hovertank (75152). Watch this.

 

75152 Imperial Assault Hovertank

LEGO_75152_WEB_PRI_1488

Help Chirrut battle the Imperial Assault Hovertank as it patrols the streets. This tough urban patrol vehicle has a two-minifigure cockpit and a rotating and elevating turret gun with spring-loaded shooters to target enemies of the Empire. And if the rebel forces hide out of sight, open the storage container, grab the blasters and play out your own mini urban battles!

 

75153 AT-ST™ Walker

LEGO_75153_web_PRI_1488

Go on the hunt for Baze and the Rebel Trooper aboard the All Terrain Scout Transport. Open the top hatch, load up the AT-ST Driver and move the legs to speed into action. When you’ve tracked them down, turn the wheel to rotate the top and prepare to fire the spring-loaded shooters! Can Baze and the trooper escape the advancing AT-ST?

 

75154 TIE Striker™

LEGO_75154_WEB_PRI_1488

Prepare for launch with the amazing TIE Striker, the Empire’s atmospheric patrol fighter! Open the minifigure cockpit from the top or front and put in the TIE Pilot.

75155 Rebel U-Wing Fighter™

LEGO_75155_WEB_PRI_1488

Open the cockpit and place the U-Wing Pilot in his seat. Fire up the engines and launch into the sky. Keep a lookout below with the transparent window, and when you spot the enemy, fire the front spring-loaded shooters and stud shooters mounted in the side doors. You can even fold the wings back for a bigger model!

 

75156 Krennic’s Imperial Shuttle

LEGO_75156_WEB_PRI_1488

When a tough transport ship is needed, Krennic’s Imperial Shuttle is the perfect choice. Put him into the pilot seat, open out the thick-armor plating and seat the Death Troopers. Lower the ramp and check the blasters are secured, then arm the spring-loaded shooters and seal the hull for takeoff. Raise the landing skids, lower the wings for flight mode and set off on another dangerous mission!

 

All of these LEGO Star Wars Rogue One sets are slated to be released to the general public starting September 30.
