LEGO Minecraft, Marvel Superheroes and Star Wars 2017 Winter Sets Now Available for Order!

We’ve already uploaded Stephen’s review of some of these sets starting with the LEGO Minecraft Mushroom Island (21129) and The Ice Spikes (21131). For those of you who are asking when will these sets be released, its good to hear that some of our Facebook friends are already reporting that they saw these  in certain stores.

First Look At the LEGO Marvel Superheroes GOTG Vol. 2 Milano Polybag 30449.

Last month, LEGO has revealed its latest line of Marvel Superheroes sets in line with the upcoming release of the next Marvel Cinematic franchise, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2. With three sets to boot, we see the gang’s famed starship, the Milano, making a comeback in The Milano vs the Abilisk (76081) set. Now if you are one of those blessed souls that were able to have the 2017 LEGO Calendar with vouchers, then you probably know by now that a chibi, polybag version of the Milano will be available in May just in time for the films big screen debut. The LEGO Marvel Superheroes GOTG Vol. 2 Milano Polybag (30449) comes as a free gift for any minimum LEGO purchase of £50 or roughly $60 together with the voucher. The polybag comes in at 64 pieces, with its iconic orange and blue color scheme.

As I understand it, the 2017 LEGO Calendar with vouchers was widely distributed in Europe. However, those in the US need not worry because we can expect that the Milano polybag will likely be offered as an in-store and online promotional most probably during the spring months, also within the same price point.

First Images of the LEGO BrickHeadz Pirates of the Caribbean Surfaces Online!

Disney’s upcoming adventure-in-the-high seas franchise is set off to sail once more this spring with its fifth film, Pirates of the Caribbean – Dead Men Tell No Tales. With LEGO poised to offer another direct-to-consumer set (rumored to be Salazar’s ghost ship, the ghastly Silent Mary) to celebrate the release of the film, it seems that TLG is adding more buzz to the film by including two of the main characters in the POTC franchise in its latest collectible sets. Thanks to an eBay post, we now have a clear idea on what’s next with the LEGO BrickHeadz line.

As you can see, at the back of the box of the Belle and Beast LEGO BrickHeadz are images of two additional Disney characters in their collectible brick-built versions: Captain Jack Sparrow (41593) and Captain Armando Salazar (41594), both of which are numbered 9 and 10 respectively. According to just2good from Eurobricks who pointed out the eBay listing, it is expected that this two new sets will retail at the same price of $9.99 same as that of the other LEGO BrickHeadz sets. The release date is rumored to be in April along side with the release of the D2C set that was mentioned earlier.

 

So what do you think ye brick mateys? Will you fancy yourself with this booty?

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?

 

 

LEGO February Store Calendar Now Up!

There are plenty of great things to expect from LEGO at the start of this year, and it seems that LEGO is on a roll even until next month with its LEGO Store promotions and events. Thankfully, we now have the LEGO February Store Calendar posted online so we look closely at its highlights. Check this out.

February 1-15 – Free LEGO DC Super Hero Girls Krypto Saves the Day (30546) polybag with any DC Super Hero Girls purchase. We mentioned in an earlier post that the wonder dog will be featured in his own LEGO polybag and as it turns out, this comes as a free promotional. So it’s a good thing if you somehow managed to resist that itch on heading to eBay to get this set for a ridiculous, higher price.

 

February 1-26 – Free The LEGO Batman Movie Posters with any purchase. From February 1-5, get a free Harley Quinn poster, Batman from February 6 to 12, Batgirl from February 13 to 19, and Robin from February 20 to 26.

 

January 2 – February 26 – Find all of Batman’s suit variants inside the LEGO store and get The LEGO Batman Movie Accessory Pack for FREE. As confirmed by some of our Facebook friends, the TLBM Accessory Pack promotional is primarily offered to younger LEGO fans and children, but AFOLs may also have a chance to grab one by participating as well (or if you ask the Store Manager nicely). There is also another in-store activity set on these dates where store visitors can help build up the iconic Gotham City out of LEGO bricks. We’re not sure if there is any complimentary gift to be given out by participating in this event, but it is definitely a fun building experience for the entire family.

 

February 7-8 – VIP Monthly Mini Model Build will be a Raccoon. Remember to register online starting January 15 at shop.LEGO.com/minibuild-registration to reserve your slot.

 

February 10 – The LEGO Batman Movie is in theaters. The long wait is finally over! Will LEGO do a repeat of its freebies same to what they offered in 2014 with The LEGO Movie Pyjamas Emmet and Radio DJ Robot minifigures? Let’s cross our fingers and see.

 

February 11 – Kids VIP Valentine’s Day Building Event is for a Rose. VIP members may visit any LEGO Store to meet and build with other LEGO fans and have a chance to bring home a LEGO rose mini model just in time for Valentine’s Day. Limited seats are available so be sure to see a Brick Specialist and register as early. Registration has started since January 1.

 

February 14 – Adult Building Night from 6-8pm. For the first time ever, LEGO Stores will be offering a unique building event for AFOLs. Visit any LEGO Store on this date to meet other LEGO-loving adults and build a Valentine’s themed mini model to take home for FREE. This activity is mainly for adults age 18 and above and early in-store registration is required. While you’re at the store, be sure to purchase the lovely seasonal vignette, Romantic Valentine Picnic (40236) to celebrate Valentine’s Day with your special someone.

 

February 15-28 – VIPs get Early Access to a new exlusive LEGO theme. We first saw them at San Diego Comic Con last year, and this time, VIP members can now have the chance to bring home the blockiest guys in LEGO town with the LEGO BrickHeadz collection. To complement the theme’s release, LEGO has released a virtual reality app LEGO BrickHeadz Builder VR which you can download for free from the Google Play Store.

 

February 18 and 25 – LEGO Life Meeting. This monthly building challenge is open to all children ages 6 to 14 with a registration fee of $10 per child. Registration begins January 1.
