Check Out These High-Resolution Pics of the LEGO Marvel Superheroes GOTG Vol. 2 Sets.

A few weeks back, we saw that the LEGO Marvel Superheroes theme has been expanded to include the comeback of MCU’s rowdiest, but endearing ragtag team of superheroes in Guardians of the Galaxy. If you still remember the first GOTG film, you know very well that everyone’s lovable perennial superhero, in a final act of self-sacrifice, decided it’s time to be back in the nursery and to be tended by his teammates for a change. So what’s cooler than having a Flora Colossus from Planet X with a single vocabulary? Why not turn him back to a sapling? And what is even more awesome than that? Create a LEGO babyfig version of him.

We saw the official images in our previous post, and this time around courtesy of The Brick Fan and Brick Heroes, we now have a closer look at the images and box art of this next wave of sets from LEGO Marvel Superheroes Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2. See if you can find baby Groot in these of pictures.

UPDATED: The LEGO Batman Movie Summer Collection Has Been Revealed!

Before everything gets awesome once again next week when The LEGO Batman Movie officially kicks off in theaters on February 8, The Hollywood Reporter has just revealed the next wave TLBM sets slated to hit shelves this summer. This confirms our previous report on these next TLBM sets as they were first revealed in DK’s The LEGO Batman Movie The Essential Guide. Check out these official images plus some other info courtesy of THR.

 

 Scarecrow’s Gyrocopter (70913) – $14.99

Scarecrow is back and this time, he’s holding back on the pizza deliveries. This set features Scarecrow on an aerial assault aboard his Gyrocopter, and a portion of the Gotham City Energy Facility. To counter Scarecrow’s attack in the air, the set comes with a Batman minifig equipped with a Batwing-like jetpack and grappling hook. 70913 measures roughly over 3″ (9 cm) high, 5″ (13 cm) long and 1” (5 cm) wide.

Team up with Batman™ to stop Scarecrow spreading fear in this action-packed THE LEGO® BATMAN MOVIE: Scarecrow™ Fearful Face-off set. The Gyro-Copter features two spinning rotors, an adjustable rudder and two bomb-drop functions to drop the included fear gas bomb elements. Attach Batman’s jetpack with Batwings and adjustable boosters, and arm him with the grappling gun to role-play an aerial battle. The set also features a power plant mini build with an explode function for added jeopardy, plus two minifigures.

• Includes two minifigures: Scarecrow™ and Batman™.
• Scarecrow’s Gyro-Copter features top and rear spinning rotors, an adjustable rudder, two bomb-drop functions and three translucent-green fear gas bomb elements.
• The power plant mini build has space for a fear gas bomb element and an explode function.
• Also includes Batman’s jetpack with Batwings and two adjustable boosters with translucent flame elements.
• Includes Batman’s grappling gun.
• Gyro-Copter measures over 3” (9cm) high, 5” (13cm) long and 1” (5cm) wide.
• Power plant mini build measures over 1” (5cm) high, 2” (6cm) wide and 1” (3cm) deep.
• $14.99

 

Bane’s Toxic Truck (70914) – $49.99

I guess there is no TLBM set that greatly highlights the film’s brand of ironic humor as seen in Bane’s Toxic Truck (70914). Against such imposing an ride as this 6X6 off-roader with all its armament and toxic fire power, our hero dives into action using a, well, Whirly Bat. Other than a pretty impressive ride fit for the roughest villains of Gotham, Bane’s first ever bigfig version is made only better with the inclusion of another notorious nemesis in the minifigure version of the Mutant Leader. Set 70914 measures in at 4″ (11 cm) high, 6″ (17 cm) long and 3″ (9 cm) wide.

Stop Bane™ and Mutant Leader’s toxic attacks with Batman™ in this exciting THE LEGO® BATMAN MOVIE: Bane™ Toxic Truck Attack set, including Bane’s Toxic Truck, Batman’s Whirly-Bat flyer and a toxic waste mini-build with explode function. The six-wheel truck features rear four-wheel suspension and a mounted six-stud rapid shooter and detachable toxic tank element. Includes two minifigures, a big figure and assorted play-inspiring weapons and accessory elements including Batman’s Batarang, Mutant Leader’s torch and Bane’s Venom backpack.

• Includes four minifigures: Batman™, Two-Face™ and two GCPD officers.
• Two-Face™ excavator features a ‘good-and-bad-side’ design, minifigure cabin, removable roof and opening weapon storage compartment with a pistol, four huge wheels (two with spikes on the ‘bad’ side), operational excavator arm and bucket, articulated design for smooth steering, six–stud rapid shooter, rotor blade and rear storage compartment.
• Batcycle has two big wheels, an opening minifigure cockpit with translucent-yellow windshield and Batwing doors, rotating double stud shooter and rotating flick missile shooter.
• Also includes two road barrier elements.
• Scoop up minifigures—and even the Batcycle—with the excavator!
• Weapons include Batman’s two Batarangs, Two-Face’s tommy gun and the GCPD officers’ shotgun and pistol.
• Accessory elements include Batman’s cape and molded utility belt and the GCPD officers’ two protective vests, police hat and walkie-talkie.
• Two-Face™ excavator measures over 4” (12cm) high, 11” (29cm) long and 5” (15cm) wide.
• Batcycle measures over 1” (5cm) high, 5” (14cm) long and 2” (7cm) wide.
• Road barriers each measure over 1” (3cm) high, 1” (5cm) wide and under 1” (2cm) deep.
• $59.99

 

Two-Face Double Demolition (70915) – $59.99

It’s was great to know that actor Billy Dee Williams is back to voice one of Gotham’s suave sociopath villains in The LEGO Batman Movie. It was made even better when we get a closer look at his minifig version aboard his monstrous excavator which he took from Falcone’s Legit Construction Company. The excavator itself is an expression of Two-Face’s twisted personality: a truck fitted with a variety of Mad Max-like weapons while keeping a semblance of a truck in its spotless condition. To counter his attack, Batman is prepared to take on the brute with his Batcycle that seems to be a nod from his Dark Knight films. Two-Face’s excavator measures in at 4″ (12 cm) high, 11″ (29 cm) long and 5″ (15 cm) wide, while the Batcycle measures over 1″ (5 cm) high, 5″ (14 cm) long and 2″ (7 cm) wide.

Stop the mighty Two-Face™ Excavator with Batman’s Batcycle in this thrilling THE LEGO® BATMAN MOVIE: Two-Face Double Demolition set. The Two-Face excavator has a minifigure cabin, operational excavator arm and bucket, articulated design for smooth steering. It might look like a normal digger from one side, but check out the ‘bad side’ featuring spikes on the huge wheels and a six-stud rapid shooter. The Batcycle features an opening minifigure cockpit, rotating double stud shooter and rotating flick missile shooter. The set includes four minifigures who are equipped with assorted weapons and accessories to inspire endless action-packed role-play scenarios.

• Includes four minifigures: Batman™, Two-Face™ and two GCPD officers.
• Two-Face™ excavator features a ‘good-and-bad-side’ design, minifigure cabin, removable roof and opening weapon storage compartment with a pistol, four huge wheels (two with spikes on the ‘bad’ side), operational excavator arm and bucket, articulated design for smooth steering, six–stud rapid shooter, rotor blade and rear storage compartment.
• Batcycle has two big wheels, an opening minifigure cockpit with translucent-yellow windshield and Batwing doors, rotating double stud shooter and rotating flick missile shooter.
• Also includes two road barrier elements.
• Scoop up minifigures—and even the Batcycle—with the excavator!
• Weapons include Batman’s two Batarangs, Two-Face’s tommy gun and the GCPD officers’ shotgun and pistol.
• Accessory elements include Batman’s cape and molded utility belt and the GCPD officers’ two protective vests, police hat and walkie-talkie.
• Two-Face™ excavator measures over 4” (12cm) high, 11” (29cm) long and 5” (15cm) wide.
• Batcycle measures over 1” (5cm) high, 5” (14cm) long and 2” (7cm) wide.
• Road barriers each measure over 1” (3cm) high, 1” (5cm) wide and under 1” (2cm) deep.
• $59.99

 

The Batwing (70916) – $89.99

Finally, we probably have the largest ride (yet) in Batman’s garage with this minifig-scaled Batwing. Set 70916 comes with an impressive build of the iconic Batwing as seen in the trailer, with a cockpit where Batman’s minifig can be snugly fit in – unless having Robin tagged along will prove to be a little uncomfortable. Why not throw in a Bat Buggy for the little tyke to save Batman the trouble? LEGO has released several iterations of the Batwing in the past (mostly in smaller sets), but this version of the Batwing is by far the best of them all. The set 70916 comes in at 5″ (15 cm) high, 12″ (31 cm) long and 18″ (48 cm) wide in flight mode, and over 3″ (9 cm) high, 12″ (31 cm) long and 20″ (53 cm) wide in landing mode.

Fly high above Gotham City in the Batwing and battle against Harley Quinn™ with Batman™ and Robin™ in this cool THE LEGO® BATMAN MOVIE: The Batwing set. The Batwing features an opening dual minifigure cockpit for Batman and Robin, rotating boosters, adjustable wings for flight and landing modes, two spring-loaded shooters, two disc shooters and an opening rear compartment with a car inside. Harley Quinn has a mobile cannon with a six-stud rapid shooter. Includes three minifigures with weapons and accessory elements including Batman’s Batarang and Harley’s hammer.

• Includes three minifigures: Batman™, Robin™ and Harley Quinn™.
• Batwing features an opening dual minifigure cockpit with translucent-yellow windshield, rotating boosters, adjustable wings for flight and landing modes, two spring-loaded shooters, two disc shooters, opening rear compartment with a small car (with a minifigure seat) inside, and translucent light-style elements.
• Harley’s cannon features a six-stud rapid shooter and two wheels.
• Weapons include Batman’s Batarang and Harley Quinn’s spinning hammer.
• Accessory elements include Batman™ and Robin’s capes, Batman’s molded utility belt and Harley Quinn’s tutu.
• Batwing measures over 5” (15cm) high, 12” (31cm) long and 18” (48cm) wide in flight mode, and over 3” (9cm) high, 12” (31cm) long and 20” (53cm) wide in landing mode.
• Car measures over 1” (2.5cm) high, 1” (5cm) long and 1” (3cm) wide.
• Harley’s cannon measures over 2” (6cm) high, 3” (8cm) long and 1” (4cm) wide.
• $89.99

 

A fifth, larger set – 70917 – has been listed by Brickset and is still waiting to be revealed retailing at 139.99€. The price range of this unnamed set is a little lower than that of the Arkham Asylum (70912), so we can also expect a rather large build, or perhaps a D2C offering.

 

The 2017 London Toy Fair Officially Kicks Off.

This year’s London Toy Fair has already begun at the British capital and The LEGO Group is one of the exhibitors who wouldn’t want to miss out on the occasion. However, unlike last year where media representatives and AFOL groups were invited, it seems that TLG has put a very tight lid on this year’s Toy Fair, limiting the exclusive invitation to retailers only.

Photography is strictly prohibited, with the entire display area walled off from outside observers. Though we don’t know what revelations these fortunate retailers have witnessed (I bet they have to sign some papers with a strict confidentiality clause of some kind) Promo Bricks were able to compile these Instagram images of the outside walls of LEGO’s display area. Check these out.

 

Though there is not much to be seen from these shots, we can take comfort from the fact that the Nuremberg Toy Fair in Germany is just around the corner starting February 1. We’ll keep a close eye on this, especially the first, exciting images of LEGO’s rumored 2017 sets that may be revealed. Will soon find out if our theories are correct. So be sure to stay tuned here at the Brick Show for more LEGO news and updates.

 

The LEGO Halloween Set 40260 Is The Next Seasonal Vignette.

It seems that LEGO’s next seasonal offering further confirms this year vignette collection. While most of us are warming up for Valentine’s Day and may have probably set aside a box or two of the LEGO Romantic Valentine Picnic 40236 for that special person in mind (you may want to check out Stephen’s review by clicking on the link above), and others have already grabbed their LEGO Easter Seasonal Set 40237, LEGO has now revealed its upcoming seasonal vignette slated most probably for October.

Thanks to Eurobricks member LegoLeroy, he was kind enough to share this image of the next LEGO Seasonal set which he found at the back of the building instructions of the Easter set which he and his wife purchased from their local LEGO Store.

Brickset has listed this next seasonal set as the LEGO Halloween 40260 which features two minifigures – a skeleton and a male, Bruce Wayne-like minifig – and a spooky castle gate of some sort with some great pieces like the pumpkin head, spider, and a cauldron for cooking a rather nasty meal. The gate seems to lead outside, against an orange sky that gives it a three-dimensional depth. Needless to say, the set comes with very interesting pieces that builders will surely want to have. The color scheme is predominantly black, but unlike 2015’s Trick or Treat Halloween (40122), this year’s Hollow’s Eve set comes with various unique elements that are pretty useful for builders. I particularly like how this year’s sets are designed, especially when it highlights the simple joys of celebrating the holidays with others – even if it is just an animated skeleton.

Our best guess is that there are still two seasonal sets waiting to be revealed just in time for Thanksgiving and Christmas. What do you think about this year’s LEGO Halloween 40260 set? Will you be picking this one up?

 

 

A Closer Look at the LEGO Iconic Chess Set 40174.

However, we’re glad to see that this humble set soon gradually received the attention that it deserved. The LEGO Iconic Chess Set (40174) is an elegant rendition of the classic board game known all over the world. True, that LEGO has released numerous brick-built chess boards giving it the usual, LEGO twist (and tons of minifigs as well) but this latest offering is a must have for traditionalists and lovers of the classic game. Thankfully, we can now look at it closely since shop.LEGO.com has now posted its official images online. Let’s take a look at these, followed by its official product description. The LEGO Iconic Chess Set (40174) comes in at 1,450 pieces and retails at $54.99.

LEGO Architecture Guggenheim Museum 21035 Official Images Released.

This year’s first LEGO Architecture Landmark Series has been revealed via Amazon France, and is expected to be included in the first wave LEGO Architecture offerings for 2017. The LEGO Architecture Guggenheim Museum (21035) follows 2016’s Landmark Series, which includes the Buckingham Palace (21029), United States Capitol Building (21030), and Burj Khalifa (21031).

This brick-built model of the famous Manhattan museum designed by Frank Lloyd Wright comes in at 744 pieces. There is no exact date of release yet, but we’ll give you more updates once we hear a word or two from LEGO. If you’re into collecting LEGO scale models of historical places that you can put on display, you may also want to look at the latest LEGO Architecture sets featuring their relatively new Skylines series:  Venice (21026), Berlin (21027), New York City (21028), Sydney (21032), Chicago (21033), and London (21034).

LEGO Pirates of the Caribbean, Dead Men Tell No Tales 71042 Set to Sail This March.

The rumor was floating around for quite some time but today, it looks like we’ll be seeing the return of Captain Jack Sparrow in his minifigure form, with the confirmation of the LEGO Pirates of the Caribbean, Dead Men Tell No Tales 71042 set. Unfortunately, initial reports of this set were mixed up together with other fake news so we were quick to dismiss this as a possibility.

However, thanks to an uploaded copy of the March Store Calendar in China, the said set is now (partially) announced, with a sort of a teaser of a blurred image of its box art. For a minute there, I thought this was a ‘censored’ leak or something, but judging from the source pdf file, it seems to be a legit announcement. Take a look.

As it seems, the March Store Calendar in China mentions an early VIP access from March 27 to 30. Obviously, we couldn’t figure that much from this image other than a blurry hint that 71042 seems to be a ship of some kind.

Will it be the Silent Mary or the Dying Gull? I guess we have to wait a little further to find out. If you’re a fan of the film (which has a very eerie and exciting trailer by the way) and wish to have a pirate ship to your collection of LEGO sets, then this one is a must have. We’ll keep you posted once official images are out so be sure to stay tuned here at the Brick Show.

LEGO BrickHeadz Official Images Released.

San Diego Comic Con 2016 witnessed the reveal of LEGO’s latest, blockiest collectibles – the LEGO BrickHeadz – with the promise of more sets to arrive in 2017. Initially, there were only four official sets (each a pair actually) that were announced back then. Thankfully, we learned that the February LEGO Store Calendar hinted at the possibility of more LEGO BrickHeadz sets to be offered to brick fans, with VIPs getting an early access from February 15 to 28, and the general public beginning March 1.

Today, we now have our first look at the official images of LEGO BrickHeadz’ first wave of brick-built collectible characters. As you may notice this first offering is based on major film franchises such as the upcoming LEGO Batman Movie, Marvel’s Cinematic Universe, and Disney’s Beauty and the Beast. Check these out.

 

LEGO BrickHeadz Batman (41585) – 81 pieces

     

 

LEGO BrickHeadz Batgirl (41586) – 99 pieces

    

 

LEGO BrickHeadz Robin (41587) – 101 pieces

    

 

LEGO BrickHeadz Joker (41588) – 151 pieces

    

 

LEGO BrickHeadz Captain America (41589) – 79 pieces

    

 

LEGO BrickHeadz Iron Man (41590) – 96 pieces

    

 

LEGO BrickHeadz Black Widow (41591) – 143 pieces

    

 

LEGO BrickHeadz The Hulk (41592) – 93 pieces

    

 

We don’t have word yet with regards to its pricing, but judging from the printed pieces and other unique parts it may be a little higher than the average cost per piece. Furthermore, two of these sets are not yet officially revealed particularly Disney’s Belle (41595) and Beast (41596). The listing on Brickset also hints on the possibility of more BrickHeadz to come, with a gap for set numbers 41593 and 41594.

Personally, I find these little guys pretty interesting, looking more like brick-built Funko Pop! vinyl collectibles. Will you fancy yourself grabbing one of these sets? Share your thoughts in the comments below.

Official Star Wars Episode VIII Title Revealed, PLUS New LEGO Star Wars Set Numbers.

It’s official. After the raging success of the Star War’s first spin-off film, Rogue One, now comes that latest instalment in the Skywalker saga that is sure to take the box office by storm. StarWars.com has now officially revealed the title of its next film – Star Wars Episode VIII: The Last Jedi. The site’s official Tweeter account has also pinned the following post together with this image.

Looking at this poster/image had my mind spinning, thinking all about its ramifications and implications. The title itself opens up a throng of questions on what it may suggest, and on what could be its overarching theme. Director Rian Johnson was quite succinct when he revealed that the title itself was on his mind since day one when he read the first draft of the script. For him, this is the title that he always wanted according to SWNN. It’s also interesting to note that Disney and Lucas Films’ choice of color for its iconic title design seems to suggest, a ‘darker’, and more sinister time for our heroes. Are we going to see more dangerous times ahead? Will the First Order eventually get the upper hand? Or does the title even suggest of a possibility for our heroine Rey ‘defecting’ to the Dark Side? These are all mind blowing questions to ponder about.

The Last Jedi becomes more intriguing when you consider that Brickset has already listed 7 LEGO sets tagged under the film’s title.

75176

75177

75179

75187

75188

75190

For sure a handful of folks from The LEGO Group are already aware of some of the film’s plot considering the amount of time needed to develop the final set design. We’re still months away before Episode VIII: The Last Jedi hits the big screen on December 15, but given LEGO’s usual release dates in conjunction to the Star Wars films’ promotion, we can expect official images to be out around August or September.

So what do you think brick fans, are you excited about this next wave of LEGO Star Wars sets? What do you think the film is all about, and which LEGO Star Wars sets do you wish to be featured? Let us know in the comments below or join in the conversation over at our Facebook page.

Official Images of the LEGO Marvel Super Heroes Guardians of the Galaxy Vol.2 Are Finally Here!

We previously had our first (albeit grainy) glimpse of Star Lord together with the rest of the gang at the back of a LEGO building manual, and thankfully this time we need not squint any further. Amazon.uk and Amazon.de have both uploaded the official set images of the LEGO Marvel Super Heroes Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 which you can find below. According to the online retail giant, these sets are slated for release on April 25, presumably in Europe. There is no word yet of a release date in the US so we will be waiting for LEGO’s updates anytime soon.
