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.

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.

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.

LEGO Star Wars Rogue One TIE Striker 75154 Now Up At Target.

Following the ‘unintended’ reveal of Amazon Italy regarding LEGO’s latest Rogue Sets (sorry guys, we have to remove our previous post on this, including the pictures that goes with as per request of The LEGO Group), Target USA Online has just listed one of the elusive sets under the Rogue One banner: the LEGO Star Wars Rogue One TIE Striker 75154. The set comes in 543 pieces and includes 4 minifigures namely, a TIE Pilot, an Imperial Ground Crew, Imperial Shoretrooper, and an Endor Rebel Trooper. Again, we’re posting this under the assumption that Target, like Amazon, is one of LEGO’s legit partners so we don’t see anything wrong if we will repost their official listings here. Unless they left another curious Gungan to toy around with their database and cause havoc, then we will keep this post up here on our site.

With that being said, here’s Target’s official product description for the 75154, followed by some pretty neat high-res images. Thanks to Toys N Bricks for the heads up.

LEGO Marvel Superheroes Doctor Strange’s Sanctum Sanctorum 76060 Found Over At Target.

August is now officially here, and with it comes a slew of new and exciting LEGO sets that we’re raring to have our hands on. There is one particular set that keeps on intriguing us, though. The LEGO Marvel Superheroes Doctor Strange’s Sanctum Sanctorum (76060) is already up over at shop.lego.com, however, it is a little bit ‘strange’ when such a set becomes another store exclusive. We received information that 76060 is a Target exclusive, both available online and at local Target stores retailing at $29.99. The image below was taken by Stephen himself directly from his cart when he purchased the set over at Target.

^362F53D2A5FEE4B26FC1F3D6931E9C2E11D5DA26CC8919E68C^pimgpsh_fullsize_distr

Stephen intended to purchase this set directly from the LEGO Store, however, he was informed that it is a Target exclusive as of the moment. Now we’re not quite sure until when the Sanctum Sanctorum will be available over at Target. Assuming that this will be a highly sought after set considering that this is an early teaser of some sort before the film hits theaters on November 4,  it is wise to consider getting this early on.

Here is LEGO’s official description of the LEGO Marvel Superheroes Doctor Strange’s Sanctum Sanctorum (76060), followed by a closer look at the set and the cool minifigs that goes along with it. Be sure to stay tuned at our official YouTube channel as Stephen and Jason explore and review the play features of this set.
