Another LEGO Star Wars Force Friday II Exclusive – The LEGO Star Wars Admiral Yularen (5002947) Minifigure.

We still have a day to go before this year’s Force Friday II is officially concluded, and with all of its announced offers and freebies, it seems that LEGO has another promotional exclusive hidden under its sleeve. We’re not really sure if this is a last minute call from the part of TLG or is just a response to the fact that the Scarif Stormtrooper (40176) minifigure polybag is already not showing at shop.LEGO.com once you check out, nevertheless, this latest minifigure promotional may prove to be attractive to the most avid collector of LEGO Star Wars minifigures.

Before the clock strikes 12 at midnight (EST) of September 3, or while supplies last, LEGO Star Wars fans (US and Canada only) with a qualifying purchase of $50 or more of any LEGO Star Wars products will receive a FREE and exclusive Admiral Yularen minifigure (5002947) as seen in Star Wars: Episode IV A New Hope. The latest promotional is now up at shop.LEGO.com, though we’re not certain until when this freebie will be up considering the expected high volume of sales brought by Force Friday II.

The 4-piece minifigure features Admiral Yularen in his Imperial Security Bureau uniform. The said minifigure is valued at $5.99, but of course, the after-market value of this exclusive may go beyond that price point depending on the relative interest of the community. Unfortunately, as I mentioned earlier, if you’re still looking forward to bag that Scarif Stormtrooper minifigure, the possibility of grabbing one as of this writing is close to nil. However, LEGO is kind enough to throw in Admiral Yularen as an exclusive freebie as an apparent replacement for its first minifig promotional.

What do you think brick fans, do you still have any last minute LEGO Force Friday II shopping plans? Are you looking to bring home this minifigure? Share us what you think in the comments below.

LEGO Force Friday II Offers to Watch Out For.

We’re just three days away before the much awaited Force Friday II launches this weekend and LEGO is definitely not going to shy away from its reveals, sales and other cool promos that celebrate everything that is awesome from the galaxy far, far away. From the promise of a full reveal of its largest LEGO set ever, and the official announcement of several LEGO Star Wars The Last Jedi sets, the anticipation for Force Friday II just keeps getting better and better.

This time, LEGO levels up the excitement with several exclusive Force Friday promos that any LEGO Star Wars enthusiasts wouldn’t want to miss. First off in North America, LEGO fans in the US and Canada will be glad to know that Double VIP points are back on all LEGO Star Wars purchases, plus great discounts on selected Star Wars sets. However, what could be the greatest selling point of these promotional is the exclusive Scarif Stormtrooper (40176) minifigure which will be given away for free with any qualifying purchases of $50 and above.

LEGO fans in Europe, particularly in Germany and France, will seem to have the better end of Force Friday deals. They will be receiving Triple VIP points in all LEGO Star Wars purchases, and will be receiving not one, but two exclusive promotional polybags for each qualifying purchase. For purchases of  €3 and above, fans will be receiving the same  Scarif Stormtrooper (40176) minifigure, and once the purchase hits the €55 (for purchases made in Germany) or €65 (France) mark, another sought after polybag set will be added to your shopping cart. First spotted in a local Wal-Mart store in Canada, we now have confirmation that the LEGO Star Wars The Last Jedi First Order Heavy Assault Walker (30497) polybag will also be added as a Force Friday II promotional.

We don’t have word  yet on when and where will this LEGO TLJ polybag will hit US shores, but it is expected that we will get to see this cool microbuild of the behemoth walker landing in US stores just in time before The Last Jedi is released in December.

We’ll keep you posted on the best LEGO Star Wars Force Friday II deals that we can get our hands on, so be sure to keep tabs with us here at Brick Show. Thanks to Brickset for the tip.

 

 

Very First LEGO Star Wars The Last Jedi Polybag – First Order Heavy Assault Walker 30497 – Spotted at a Local Retailer.

We’re still a few weeks away from Force Friday’s Star Wars’ bazaar, but it seems some local retailers are trickling away some LEGO Star Wars goodies.  A couple of days ago, we also reported how some online retailers managed to pull the veil off from the latest line of LEGO Star Wars The Last Jedi sets, only to have TLG put it back again. This time around, another retailer decides to just throw things up in the air, and to put on display our very first LEGO Star Wars TLJ polybag set.

Brickset shares several images of what seems to be a miniaturized version of one of the LEGO Star Wars First Order Heavy Assault Walker (30497) polybag, reportedly found on display and for sale at a local Wal-Mart store in Ontario, Canada.  The polybag set comes in 54 pieces and was put on sale for $4.86. The funny thing is that its official store tag reads “Confidential SW Movie”, so I guess whoever puts them there on display at the store rack doesn’t really bother about such things.

Elsewhere, there have also been reports of several Star Wars toys and merchandise that have been displayed in some local US stores. If you look hard enough, perhaps you may manage to find some of these LEGO Star Wars TLJ boxed sets any time soon, especially considering that we’re now roughly three weeks away  before Force Friday officially kicks in. On a personal note, I appreciate the polybag trend, especially the ones that our mini replicas of the larger sets, such as those from The LEGO Ninjago Movie polybag line. Keep an eye out on these little goodies and please do let us know if you spot one at your local retailer. Thanks once again to Brickset for sharing these images.

 

New The LEGO Ninjago Movie Lloyd Minifigure Polybag (30608) Found + Other Updates.

Much has been revealed about The LEGO Ninjago Movie during this year’s Comic-Con and just before we hit the theaters next month, it seems that LEGO still has some surprises tucked under its sleeve. Our friends over at Promobricks stumbled upon a find over at eBay and as it seems, we will not be getting one, but two minifigure polybag versions of the Green Ninja himself, Lloyd Garmadon. If you recall back in June, we first stumbled upon Lloyd’s promotional minifigure – the Kendo Lloyd (30608) polybag – as a promotional offering that comes with an unlock code to be used in the film’s accompanying video game.

As it turns out, Lloyd will probably have another minifigure promotional as images of this new polybag appears on eBay. Check out the images below.

One will notice right away that this polybag version of Lloyd sports a hood which is basically the same as that found in the film’s CMF tie-up, a tasseled sword similar to what he is wielding in the Green Ninja Mech Dragon (70612) set, and a unique, never-before-seen torso print. The torso is quite different from Lloyd’s other minifigure iteration where he is seen wearing a sweater on top of his ninja garb. This is one minifigure that will surely be interesting to collect.

In related news, Warner Bros. Interactive has shared several exciting info regarding the film’s tie-up video of the same title. We now get to see some of the combat styles and slick moves that our Ninjago heroes have acquired. They’ve also released several in-game screenshots that highlights the game’s highly-detailed and immersive environment. With styles and techniques that takes its cue from nature, these abilities are also available to players during the game.

Lastly, as of this writing, we now have confirmation that the Kendo Lloyd (30608) polybag now comes as a GameStop pre-order exclusive while supplies last.

We’re not sure if this polybag promotional is specific only to GameStop, and we hope that this will be made available to other retailers as well. The LEGO Ninjago Movie and The LEGO Ninjago Movie Video Game will both be released in the US on September 22.

New Characters To Watch Out For in LEGO Marvel Superheroes 2!

Day 3 of this year’s San Diego Comic Con was a show-stopper for LEGO and Marvel fans. During the LEGO Marvel Superheroes 2: Meet the Talent Behind the Video Game panel, the powerhouse team of Arthur Parsons (Head of Design for  TT Games), Bill Rosemann (Executive Creative Director of Marvel Games), Justin Ramsden (LEGO Designer), Kurt Busiek (Comic Book Writer for Avengers Forever), and Dan Veesenmeyer (Comic Content Artist, and artist for LEGO Marvel’s Avengers) were all present to give SDCC attendees a glimpse on the additional characters that will grace the sequel to the highly popular video game, plus tons of other interesting info about the game.

According to The Brick Fan, an exclusive, never-before-seen LEGO Marvel Superheroes 2 trailer was shown during the panel, and several new characters and vehicles from the Marvel comic books were introduced. Some of these new characters were the Vulture from Spider-Man: Homecoming, Doctor Octopus, Cosmo, Greenskyn Smashtroll, Throg, and Forbush Man. Also presented to the audience were previously revealed characters of Howard the Duck, Iron Duck and Gwenpool.

As it seems, our LEGO superheroes will also be capable of using their signature vehicles as seen in the comics and on the big screen. Examples of these are the Black Panther Jet, Crossbones’ Truck, and Star Lord’s Mini Ravage Jet.

What is also interesting is the fact that players can use several versions of the same comic book character during game play. For example, you can play as Spider-Man in his Homemade Suit version as seen in Spider-Man: Homecoming, while your friend plays as Spiderman Noir or Spiderman 2099. The legendary Stan Lee will also make a comeback in LMSH2, where you will have a chance to save him and, if you are successful in your mission, be rewarded along the way. The possibilities are endless, especially if you have more than 200 playable Marvel characters at your disposal. These 200+ characters are all available to players as they progress through the game, regardless of what type of console you are using. As such, WB Games and TT Games have no plans of offering any console-specific character packs which is fair for all gamers and fans of the franchise.

During the panel discussions and Q&A, Parsons also hinted at the possibility of Moon Knight making his way to LMSH2 as a playable character, and the inclusion of Mysterio going head-on against the Sinister Six. There was also some hints about the in-game mechanics (96 in all) and several abilities of some of the game’s characters. One example is Kamala Khan’s ability of shrinking down to size, and pass through different mazes.

Finally, Arthur Parsons also mentioned that a new LEGO Marvel Superheroes 2 trailer will be aired likely on Monday. He reiterated this announcement via his official Twitter account.

In closing, attendees were treated with ticketed parting gifts of the foil comic print of Kang Dynasty, and the LEGO Marvel Superheroes The Avengers Quinjet (30304) polybag which was quite rare when it was introduced in 2015. An in-game, LEGOlized digital version of the Kang Dynasty comic book cover, and other similar classic covers will all be available in LMSH2 via collectable minikits.

We’ll keep an eye on the latest trailer of LEGO Marvel Superheroes 2 when it hits the web on Monday. In the meantime, you may now pre-order your copy of this highly anticipated LEGO video game via Amazon. A Deluxe Edition is also available that comes with a Season Pass, the Classic GOTG Character Pack, and an exclusive Giant-Man minifigure. The game is expected to be released to the general public on November 14.

Thanks again to The Brick Fan for giving us an inside look on the happenings during this year’s SDCC.

 

 

 

Here’s A Wrap-Up of Everything That Is “Good and Dad” About The LEGO Ninjago Movie @SDCC 2017.

We’re almost down to the final day of this year’s San Diego Comic Con, with The LEGO Ninjago Movie making waves during last Thursday’s panel presentation. Prior to that, SDCC’s Preview Night also allowed attendees the opportunity to witness the unveiling of one of TLNM’s retailer-exclusive sets, the garmadon, Garmadon, GARMADON! (70619) and a new poster to boot. The reveal of Garmadon’s intimidating metal shark was a sign of more good things to come throughout the celebrated fan convention. Here’s a round-up of everything that was revealed thus far about The LEGO Ninjago Movie, exclusive at Comic Con.

First off, we have LEGO’s third largest set put on display for the first time. Coming in at a whooping 4,867 pieces, The LEGO Ninjago City (70620) has been finally showcased to the public and attendees of SDCC. Slated to be released on September 1 just in time before The LEGO Ninjago Movie is shown in theaters, Ninjago City (70620) will retail for $299.99 and features a highly detailed, 3-level modular model of the brick-built city. Credit goes to the Brick Vault for this firsthand look.

Perhaps other than the star-studded cast of TLNM present during the SDCC panel, LEGO fans and attendees were particularly excited about the launch of the film’s 2nd official trailer. In the said trailer, we’re given an inside look at Lloyd’s internal struggle of wanting to know more about his dad while foiling his plans of ruining Ninjago City. We get to see a sort of backstory on how Garmadon was prior to his marriage to Lloyd’s mom Koko. Will both father and son finally come to terms and acknowledge the strength of their familial bond? In case you missed it, here’s the 2nd official trailer of The LEGO Ninjago Movie.

Those who attended The LEGO Ninjago Movie Panel at SDCC 2017 were surprised by a very much welcomed treat. The Brick Fan was at the heart of the action during Comic Con, and was one of attendees during The LEGO Ninjago Movie Panel. Announced a couple of days back, panel attendees were given a Green Ninja Mech Dragon (30428) polybag as a souvenir. Check out the image below courtesy of The Brick Fan.

The cast of TLNM also had a brick-building, bonding time at the LEGO Booth while having their try on the latest LEGO sets dedicated to the film.  Justin Theroux and Dave Franco, who played the father-and-son duo of Garmadon and Lloyd, were caught having a blast with the LEGO Ninjago Movie sets as posted by LEGO via social media.

Lastly, IGN has also revealed the very first game play video for The LEGO Ninjago Movie Video Game during a live panel at SDCC. During an interview with TT Games Producer Tim Wileman and Game Director, Arthur Parsons, we had our first exclusive look at how the video game will tie-in with the film across eight (8) action-packed locations within the vast world of LEGO Ninjago. Here’s a sneak peak of how our young ninjas will fair in their digital gaming versions.

Needless to say, it has been a great Comic Con year for the LEGO Ninjago Movie, and with the film getting the same love from The LEGO Group in terms of a wide variety of sets similar to its predecessors (The LEGO Batman Movie and The LEGO Movie), we’re very much certain that we will see more of our teenage ninja heroes in the near future. The LEGO Ninjago Movie will hit theaters on September 22, 2017 and features the voices of Dave Franco (Lloyd), Justin Theroux (Garmadon), Michael Peña (Kai), Fred Armisen (Cole), Kumail Nanjiani (Jay), Abbi Jacobson (Nya), Zach Woods (Zane), Olivia Munn (Koko), and the legendary Jackie Chan (Master Wu).

More LEGO Ninjago Movie Polybags Revealed!

More news is coming in with regards to The LEGO Ninjago Movie sets and polybags. After the reveal of several TLNM set polybags such as the Kendo Lloyd (30608), Ice Tank (30427), and The LEGO Ninjago Movie Movie Maker (5004394) we now have reports of two additional polybags that will be coming out soon. Thanks to Hoth Bricks, we now have a look at what these polybags are, and how they fare as micro-scaled versions of the original mech sets of our Ninjago heroes.

Coming in at 64 pieces, we have the Quake Mech (30379) polybag which takes its cue from it’s yet to be revealed larger counterpart, set 70632. It is the unicycle riding mech supposedly driven by Cole in the film, and rumor has it that the larger 70632 is slated to be a part of TLNM’s 2018 wave of sets. In the meantime, we’ll settle for this smaller rendition which is not bad in itself.

Next we have the smaller Green Ninja Mech Dragon (30428) polybag which quite frankly, looks more like a hatchling of its larger predecessor. Being at microscale coming in at 60 pieces, it actually looks more like a baby lizard rather than a dragon! I can just imagine someone building a MOC of the Green Ninja Dragon Mech flanked by these little baby critters.

We don’t have any info as of now on the availability of these polybags, but we do expect that LEGO will keep up with the trend of offering micro-scale versions of these much larger sets just in time before The LEGO Ninjago Movie debuts in theaters on September 22. It’ll be fun to collect these micro-scaled mech polybags and have it stand alongside their larger versions.

 

Which of these polybags will you pick up? What other TLNM mechs will you like to have polybag treatment? Let us know what you think in the comments below.
