LEGO Europe Store Calendar Reveals The Iconic Cave (5004936) Set.

Promo Bricks has recently spotted the LEGO Europe Summer Store Calendar, and with it comes a promotional find that most minifig collectors will find interesting. For a minimum purchase of £25 or 30€ from August 10 to August 30 both in-store and online, you can get to bring home the Iconic Cave (5004936) set for free. The promotional set contains two cave people minifigures very similar to LEGO’s Caveman and Cave Woman CMF from Series 1 and 5 respectively.

The Iconic Cave set follows the tradition of other similar re-bundled CMF promotionals like the Gingerbread Man and Chicken Suit Guy. We’re not sure yet if the Iconic Cave will find its way in the US and other countries, considering that we already know what’s in store for the month of July such as a pretty cool  LEGO BrickHeadz Wonder Woman Build Event, free Mini Piggy Bank (40251) promotional, and the rumored LEGO Creator Expert Double Decker Bus (10258).

We Heard that The LEGO Creator Double Decker Bus is Coming, and We Certainly Hope It’s True!

If you recall, the July LEGO Store Calendar already teased next month’s exclusive VIP set. We don’t have the faintest idea then on what it could be, considering that we already have the most recent LEGO Creator Expert Carousel (10257). But thanks to Hoth Bricks, we now have info on what this mystery set will be.

Already listed on Brickset, the LEGO Creator Expert Double Decker Bus (10258) is slated to be the next Advanced Model set that takes cue from its smaller cousin, the LEGO Creator London Bus (40220). It is expected that the July D2C exclusive will be a faithful representation of the iconic London Bus that may probably designed to be at a minifig scale.

Interestingly, the LEGO Creator Carousel (10257) designer video may have already hinted on the Double Decker Bus when it featured one the LEGO designers having a doppelganger of some sorts.

It also seems that LEGO intends to have this mini-versions and large set counterparts as main staple of its Creator line. In 2011, we saw the Volkswagen T1 Camper Van (10220) getting the LEGO treatment and two years later, having a mini-me version in the form of the Mini VW T1 Camper Van (40079) polybag. Then just last year, we have the Volkswagen Beetle (10252) and its smaller cousin the Mini Volkswagen Beetle (40252) LEGO Store promotional.

If this indeed our July LEGO Creator Expert Store exclusive, then we can expect an official word from LEGO anytime soon. The LEGO Creator Expert Double Decker Bus (10258) will be available for early VIP access from July 17-31, retailing at 129.99 Euros. What do you think about this set brick fans? Will you fancy building yourself a Double Decker Bus? Let us know in the comments below, or head over at our Facebook page to share your thoughts.

 

 

 

WB Games Launches LEGO Marvel Superheroes 2 E3 Sweepstakes.

Here’s another reason to be excited for this year’s Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3). Warner Bros Gaming has just announced on its official E3 LEGO Marvel Superheroes 2 Twitter page that it will be giving away an exclusive, 18-inch LEGO Marvel build valued at a whopping $2,875 via an electronic raffle. You can enter the sweepstakes raffle by simply following and retweeting their post with the hashtag #LEGOMarvelE3Sweepstakes. For the finer details of their contest rules, you may check it right here.

I absolutely have no idea who or what this brick-built mystery character is, save for the hint that it is ‘formerly frightful’. My quick guess is that it could be any of the members of the classic Frightful Four namely, Madame Medusa, The Wizard, Paste-Pot Pete, and the Sandman. First introduced in Marvel comics in 1965, they specifically banded together for the sole purpose of defeating the Fantastic Four.

This is just my guess by the way, but everything will be revealed eventually on Thursday, June 15. For the rest of WB Games’ E3 programming schedule, you may want to check my previous post. Be sure to keep tabs with us as we bring you the latest happenings in the world of LEGO gaming as revealed at this year’s E3.

Thanks to The Brick Fan for the heads up.

 

 

A Round-Up of What We Know So Far About the LEGO Ninjago Movie Sets, Polybags and More.

More and more news is starting to pour in with regards to LEGO’s next big film, the LEGO Ninjago Movie. Now that the LEGO Batman Movie’s digital HD version is officially out, and the 13th of this month marks the release of its Blu-ray counterpart (which is now at 31% discount over at Amazon), heads are gradually turning towards the heroes of Ninjago.

A lot has been revealed during the past weeks, with many info scattered here and there with regards to the film. Here’s a round-up of what we know so far about all the LEGO Ninjago Movie sets and other promotional stuff that you might find interesting.

 

The Launch of the Official LEGO Ninja Movie Microsite.

LEGO.com has updated their website to include a dedicated page or a microsite for the LEGO Ninjago Movie. Frankly, there is not much to be seen other than the official trailer and a downloadable movie poster. However, there is one link on the page where you get to play several missions, and one of which is to correctly identify the silhouette of the LEGO Ninjago Movie character being shown. If you hurdled the mission successfully, you’ll get to see several character shots of Kai, Jay, Zane, Cole, Nya, and Lloyd as you can see in the images below. I’m not sure if this game or mission is limited only to certain regions since it seems that I can’t access the game via LEGO’s US website. As of the moment it looks like it is available only in certain European regions and in the UK.

 

The LEGO Ninjago Movie Minifigure Promotionals.

Like all previous LEGO films, the LEGO Ninjago Movie will also come with an Activity Book which will likely sell out because of its exclusively bundled, free minifigure. Partnering once again with publisher Scholastic, The LEGO Ninjago Movie Garmadon Attack! Activity Book comes with an exclusive Cole minifigure. Though the activity book is now listed at Amazon for pre-order, it seems that LEGO would like to keep things under wraps for now, with the image of the minifig hidden. Fortunately, thanks to Bricks Fans, we have a closer look at this exclusive Cole minifig before Amazon replaced their posting with an intentionally blurred image.

Another minifigure promotional tied up with the film comes in a form of a polybag. First appearing on eBay, the LEGO Ninjago Movie Kendo Lloyd (30608) features Lloyd with several kendo training accessories. However, what makes this minifig promotional quite interesting is the fact that it comes with a sort of unlock code found at the lower left corner of its polybag. This suggests that LEGO may also have a video game tied up with the release of the film similar to other titles such as LEGO Marvel Avengers and LEGO Star Wars: The Force Awakens where you get to unlock a mystery character in the game when you enter the unlock code.

This is further confirmed when The Brick Fan reported that the polybag leaflet building instructions for the LEGO Ninjago Movie Lloyd (30608) minifigure is now listed at LEGO’s customer service site, tagged with a code 30608 CONF_TTGAMES. Again, the leaflet itself doesn’t offer ground breaking news, but the manner in which LEGO listed it is somehow intriguing, giving reference to long-time partner and gaming developer, TT Games.

 

More Polybags

As of this writing, other than the Kendo Lloyd minifig polybag, Brickset has also listed two additional polybags that hints on their larger cousins. First reported by Hoth Bricks, the LEGO Ninjago Movie Ice Tank (30427) polybag is a direct reference to the larger Ice Tank mech driven by Zane in the film. This polybag was first seen posted on eBay’s French website, which immediately sold out later on.

Another polybag slated under the LEGO Ninjago Movie goes by the name Quake Mech (30379), also listed by Brickset. It is unclear as of the moment if this is related to any other larger set, but what we do know is that it is one of the vehicles supposedly used by Cole in the film as you can see from the screenshot below.

 

And of course… The LEGO Ninjago Movie Sets!

Currently, there are thirteen (13) LEGO Ninjago Movie sets and 1 D2C exclusive lined up for release by August, and several images are now floating online that shows how these will look like. I’m posting it here since it is quite prevalent already, but if LEGO will give us a ring, then we will surely remove them and comply. The only exception is the Flying Jelly Sub (70610) which was officially posted at TRU’s Danish website only to be removed later on, and Amazon Japan’s posting of LEGO Juniors The LEGO Ninjago Movie Shark Attack (10739). So here it goes. Credit goes to Pricevortex for these images.

Destiny’s Bounty (70618)

 

LEGO Ninjago Movie D2C Set (70620)No Available Image

 

LEGO Juniors The LEGO Ninjago Movie Shark Attack (10739)

 

Again, we don’t have any official images yet since the LEGO Ninjago Movie theme is still two months away before it is officially unveiled in August – a month before the film makes its public debut in September.

Do you think this current line-up looks promising? Will you be picking them up once they’re available in August? Let us know in the comments below or via our official Facebook page.

 

 

 

Take a Look at Some of the Highlights of the LEGO Store’s July Calendar.

Next month’s LEGO Store Calendar is now up, with all the events and promotions focused on testing your creativity with several building challenges both for kids and adult fans of the brick. Starting July 1, the largest LEGO Minecraft set ever made, the LEGO Minecraft Mountain Cave (21137), will be available for purchase to the general public, while VIPs get an early chance of having the next, exclusive LEGO D2C.

If you’re planning your next LEGO purchase during this month, specially taking advantage of the VIP points and freebies, be sure to check out some of the latest LEGO Creator sets around such as the Space Shuttle Explorer (31066), Modular Poolside Holiday (31067), and the lovely Fairground themed, Carousel (10257).

 

Here’s What To Expect From The Largest LEGO Fan Convention in the Philippines – The Abrickadbra 2017 (Part 1).

Here at the Brick Show, one of our aims is to offer our followers a glimpse of the best and most creative use of the LEGO brick both in the US and across the globe. The appeal of creating something new using LEGO seems to be universal to say the least as evidenced by locally arranged LEGO fan conventions and brick festivals all around the world. Last March, I mentioned in one of my previous posts that the Philippines is getting ready for its largest LEGO fan convention spearheaded by the Philippine LEGO Users Group, or PhLUG. Dubbed as Abrickadabra, the LEGO fan convention showcases the most creative MOCs, both from kids and adults alike, that also cleverly conveys the unique Filipino culture.

Frankly speaking, since the inception of Abrickadabra in 2015, I never had the opportunity of visiting this LEGO fan event for various reasons. So imagine my excitement when I was invited to PhLUG’s mini press event a couple of weeks ago to have an early look at what we can expect from the country’s largest gathering of LEGO fans.

The PhLUG is currently steered by its captain and founder Piper Protacio, who also happens to be the Philippines’ LUG Ambassador. His passion for the LEGO brick is seriously contagious! Speaking in behalf of PhLUG during the mini press event, Piper gave the attendees a glimpse of what will take place on the 27th as Abrickadabra 2017 kicks in.

First off, a little background about Abrickadabra. Now on its third year, it is PhLUG’s annual LEGO fan convention where original LEGO MOCs, building events, and informative LEGO building techniques are shared and discussed all in an atmosphere of fun and camaraderie. It is by far, the largest LEGO fan convention in the Philippines, followed only by BRICKXhibit which is also organized by PhLUG and held usually in December. Every year, PhLUG strives to make Abrickadbra even better by adding more interactive, hands-on activities that cater not only to children and AFOLs, but to the general public as well. Its overarching goal is to promote the LEGO brick as a medium to channel one’s creativity and to see it not just a mere toy made of ABS plastic.

Piper went on to introduce the cool guys behind PhLUG’s SIGs or sub-interest groups, and on display during the press event were some of the MOCs that will be showcased during Abrickadabra. There are five SIGs under the PhLUG umbrella, namely:

  • Force Legion, which specializes in Star Wars builds and other vehicles from the galaxy far, far away.

  • Kingdoms, where medieval kings, pirates, and samurais rule.

  • Sci-fi, where LEGO artisans give life to sci-fi characters, mechs and Steampunk creations.

  • Urban, when it’s an urban jungle of LEGO bricks out there.

  • Versus, where all the brick-built superheroes converge and clash.

Other than the creative minds behind this amazing MOCs, what caught my attention was how dedicated PhLUG is in giving budding LEGO MOCers (if I used the term correctly) a chance to show their creations. I’m glad to hear that more than just being an AFOL event, Abrickadabra also encourages children to create and take pride in their MOCs. Here’s a special shout out to Zion, Manuel and Gero for taking time to share and say something about their original LEGO builds. These kids will be a part of Abrickadabra’s Junior Builders where children age 12 and below will a have a spot in sharing their original LEGO creations. Here’s a sampling of what these kids can do.

To my surprise, present also during the press event was builder Mark Gotidoc whose LEGO Ideas entry, the LEGO Brickheadz Inside Out, was once featured in our list of 7 LEGO Brickheadz MOCs that will win your hearts. It was a pleasure chatting with him and learning more about his LEGO Ideas project. If you wish to support him as well as I do, you may head over at the LEGO Ideas website and cast your vote.

Other event highlights include a Vintage LEGO Corner where well preserved, LEGO classic sets from the 60s till the 80s will be put on display.

Sascha Olik, one of the most prolific LEGO builders in the country, will also be adding fun to the event by exhibiting his original Super Dimension Fortress Macross LEGO creation. The sheer scale and accuracy of this build – weighed in at 11,000 pieces of LEGO bricks – is absolutely stunning.

If these fascinating LEGO creations have piqued your interest for Abrickadabra 2017, then you might be thrilled to know more about the rest of the activities that PhLUG has lined up for this event. I’ll be covering that in my next instalment so be sure to keep tabs with us. So if you happen to be in Manila as you’re reading this, you might as well block your calendar this Saturday and pay a visit at the Promenade Hall in Greenhills, San Juan, Manila. Tickets will be sold at the venue for Php100, or roughly $2 each, and you may follow PhLUG’s official Facebook page for more updates leading to the event.

 

Special thanks to Piper and Chestnut for the rest of the photos.

 

 

 

LEGO Teams Up With Sainsbury’s to Bring The LEGO Create The World Card Trading Game in the UK.

Here’s another reason to be thankful if you’re a LEGO fan residing in the UK. Since the beginning of this month, LEGO’s partnership with one the country’s largest retail store and supermarket chain, Sainsbury’s, has proven to be quite successful. As an off-shoot of their April LEGO exclusive with the LEGO Creator Create the World (40256) 3-in-1 set, Sainsbury’s launched a collectible trading card tie-in that follows the adventures of minifigures Sam and Lily as they travel around the globe, and learn about its beautiful people, cultures, and landscapes.

Exclusive at Sainsbury’s stores, the LEGO Create the World Collectible Trading Cards features 140 collectible trading cards that you can swap with friends. Mainly intended for KFOLs (Kid Fans of LEGO), the trading cards are roughly divided into two categories: the Minifigure Cards and Create Cards.

The Minifigure Cards, as the name suggests, are based on LEGO’s CMF series, most likely until Series 16. There are 105 Minifigure cards which I suppose to have been selected randomly across the CMF series. Each Minifigure Card also includes a bit of trivia on each of them. The Create Cards, on the other hand, has a metallic look and feel to it, featuring 35 building activity cards. The Create Cards are based on the build suggestions that goes with several LEGO Classic sets such as the Creative Bricks (10692), Creative Supplement (10693), Creative Building Set (10702), Creative Builder Box (10703), Creative Box (10704), Medium Creative Brick Box (10696), Large Creative Brick Box (10698), and Creative Building Basket (10705).

More than just for trading, the Create the World Collectible Cards also offers several classic games that children will love. Using these cards, kids can play Rock, Paper, Scissors by following the symbols found at the upper right hand corner of each Minifigure Card. Each player will draw a certain number of cards and will randomly select from his/her hand and see if s/he has the winning card. Players can tweak the game a bit to suit the number of players, or just be creative with the game’s mechanics.

Kids (and perhaps adults as well) can also play Dominoes using the back side of the cards. If you noticed, each card features two strips of 1×3 LEGO bricks of varying colors on the back. Each player starts with 20 cards each, and places a card face down. The next player then finds a card with a matching LEGO piece to create a 2×3 LEGO brick, the next player does the same, keeping in mind that connected cards should not overlap.

Finally, you have the Create Cards that offer building challenges for players to work with. With LEGO bricks at hand, kids can have hours of fun of figuring out how to create these builds. Players are free to make their own rules and mechanics to create a more engaging and fun game.

Sainsbury’s is giving a pack of 4 cards for free for every single receipt purchase of £10, both online and through their supermarkets. For the collector in you, there is also the option of buying a Booster Card Pack containing 4 cards which sell at 50p/pack. Another welcome add-on is the inclusion of a LEGO Collector’s Album where you can store all 140 cards in the series. It goes for sale at £2 and it features brightly colored pages that show the adventures of Sam and Lily as they trek across the globe.

Since this is clearly a retailer’s promotional exclusive, it is highly unlikely that the LEGO Create the World Collectible Cards will ever reach North America. So if you have friends living in the UK, you may want to recommend that they do their shopping over at Sainsbury, especially that the promo will run only until June 13. You may also check Sainsbury’s website for more details.

 

So what do you think brick fans? Will you be collecting these cards if given the chance?

Here’s Your Chance to Build Your Very Own LEGO Star Wars Detention Block Rescue Set.

Some of us may resent the fact that LEGO can be cruel when it comes to certain ‘exclusives’ (more so if you’re not one of those blessed souls who managed to get their hands on a Star Wars Celebration limited edition set). However, the appeal of having a very unique set of your own as a memento can sometimes be overwhelming.  So what will you do if you were not fortunate enough to be even selected to purchase this exclusive set? Bricklink your way through it. Thanks to Brickfinder, we now have our chance to come up with our own LEGO Star Wars Detention Block Rescue set. For the 40th anniversary of the Star Wars saga and that of Star Wars Episode IV in particular, LEGO opted to come up with a set straight from a scene in Episode IV – A New Hope and offer it exclusively in this year’s Star Wars Celebration in Orlando. An opportunity to own the prized set for non-attendees of the SW Celebrations opened up when LEGO offered a raffle via its Twitter page. Though the response from LEGO Star Wars fans were somehow positive regarding the Detention Block Rescue set, quite frankly, this vignette can easily be built by finding the pieces over at Bricklink.

Thanks to AFOL Steve Peacock, who was kind enough to share the set’s parts list and building instructions, we now have a chance to build this set. As mentioned, the set comes with very common pieces that you can find save for the Flat Tile 1×1 No.166 which can be found on some recent LEGO City sets such as the Pizza Van (60150) and Policeman With Cookie and Stinger (40175) polybag. Check out the list below and see if you can have all the LEGO pieces to build the Detention Block Rescue.

You may download the building instructions in PDF format right here. Stephen was fortunate enough to have this set and offers his review as you can see below.

Were you able to have this LEGO SWCO exclusive? Let us know in the comments below.

 

 

The Exclusive LEGO Star Wars Detention Block Rescue Can Be Yours via LEGO’s Twitter Page!

Star Wars Celebration 2017 in Orlando has begun, and LEGO is definitely not missing out on the excitement of the occasion.  A few days ago, LEGO has unveiled this year’s Star Wars Celebration exclusive which is a fitting nod to the very first Star Wars film ever made 40 years ago. The LEGO Star Wars Detention Block Rescue is a special-edition exclusive inspired by the Detention Block AA-23 from the original 1977 film Episode IV – A New Hope. However, this unnumbered set is not that easy to acquire. LEGO has made this so exclusive that you have to be physically present at the SW Celebrations, and even having the chance of purchasing it there must be raffled off (which have started already by the way).

So for those who cannot make it in Orlando and is still hoping to have a piece of the Star Wars Celebration with them in LEGO, there is good news. LEGO, via its Twitter page, has just announced another raffle where you can get the chance of owning the LEGO Star Wars Detention Block Rescue. You can go through the lengthy rule book right here, or you can just simply retweet this post from the official LEGO Twitter page as you can see below. No purchase is necessary to enter the raffle.

To enter the Prize Giveaway, follow the instructions on the LEGO Twitter Website www.Twitter.com/LEGO_Group. To enter, simply RT (ReTweet) clearly designated competition tweets posted by @LEGO_Group during the entry period. Potential Winners will be chosen by random draw from among all eligible entries received, to be conducted by members of the LEGO Social Media Team. Random Drawings occur daily during the entry period.

 

May the Force be with us (and bring home the prize)! Star Wars Celebration 2017 in Orlando is now happening at the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando, Florida and runs until Easter Sunday on the 16th. For everything awesome built out of LEGO bricks, be sure to stop by the LEGO booth (#2630) and for other cool Star Wars toys and stuff, be sure to check out Wildcard Toys’ booth near the stage of the Convention Center.
