It’s never too early to make that 2018 LEGO wishlist, especially that the LEGO January 2018 Store Calendar is now available online via LEGO’s servers. With the promise of more than 120 new sets to be available by January 1st, LEGO sets the stage for this new line of offerings by highlighting 2018’s LEGO Creator modular set – the 1950s-styled Downtown Diner (10260).
It’s nice of LEGO to sometimes give collectors who might have missed a promotional product or two in the past another chance (or two) to pick those uncommon items up. Their latest promotional comeback involves their previous feature-length CG-animated adventure The LEGO Ninjago Movie, which premiered last September.
This day greeted me with a much welcomed surprise with the arrival of the first official trailer of MCU’s Avengers: Infinity War. I am literally speechless as I replayed the clip several times to see all the hidden details that I might have missed, and to probably guess what LEGO has in store for a Disney Marvel film as grand as this one. Avengers: Infinity War marks the culmination of 10 years of MCU films and it is where all Marvel superhero paths converge. In case you want to see it again (such as myself) here’s Infinity War’s official trailer, which is currently trending at #1 over on YouTube.
The LEGO Ideas Review Team has finally revealed our next LEGO Ideas set. Topping off the list of 11 candidates that reached that coveted 10K votes, we now have the TRON Legacy Light Cycle by BrickBros UK. This set is based on Walt Disney Pictures’ 2010 sequel TRON: Legacy, from the original 1982 film, TRON. Sam Flynn’s Light Cycle is probably one of the most visually stunning piece of machine in the movie, which was perfectly captured in LEGO bricks by sibling designers Tom and Drew of BrickBros UK. Earlier this month, there has been some rumors going around that a particular LEGO TRON set is in the works, considering that licensing will not be an issue since Disney owns the rights for the film. Now we have confirmation that the said rumor is indeed true, and we now have the LEGO Ideas TRON Legacy Light Cycle as our next official LEGO Ideas set.
We now have what looks like official images of the next wave of 2018 LEGO Marvel Super Heroes sets that pays tribute to MCU’s rendition of the mighty Black Panther! First revealed by azanianimates over at Instagram, the famed king of Wakanda will be receiving the same LEGO treatment similar to what we saw in Spider-Man: Homecoming with its Beware the Vulture (76083) and ATM Heist Battle (76082) sets, and Thor: Ragnarok with Thor VS Hulk: Arena Clash (76088) and The Ultimate Battle for Asgard (76084).
