It looks like more information are coming in as early as now regarding the next wave of LEGO Star Wars sets, hot off the trail of the LEGO Star Wars Solo sets. LEGO has already revealed the release date of these upcoming tie-in sets in line with the next Star Wars anthology, Solo: A Star Wars Story. Though these sets are to be released at an earlier time as compared to other upcoming LEGO sets, it looks like Disney and LEGO have placed a very tight lid over potential leaks and spoilers on these.
It seems that there are plenty of new sets to keep under our LEGO radar once the first half of 2018 kicks in. Earlier, we learned that LEGO will be offering another line of City-themed sets, taking its cue from 2014’s Arctic Explorers. This teaser was announced via the German LEGO Catalog for the months of January to June, 2018, and this time around, Promobricks shares with us once again another page from the catalog that gives us an idea on when the next exciting sets will appear. According to the German LEGO fan site, the LEGO Jurassic World Fallen Kingdom sets will be out in the open also in May, 2018, as you can see from the image below.
It seems that we’re getting more and more information on what’s in store with LEGO’s biannual LEGO Catalog. We already know that Ukraine’s LEGO Catalog already gave a hint at the release dates of the Marvel Superheroes Infinity War and Star Wars Solo sets, and this time around some of our friends from Promobricks managed to get their hands on a copy of the German LEGO Catalog which was reported to be distributed by other toy retailers in the region. Now traditionally, these January to June catalogs are not released in any LEGO Brand Stores earlier than the January, while other retailers may opt to distribute them early on. Such is the case with the Promobricks team, as they managed to get a copy of the LEGO Catalog from third party retailers ahead of its usual January release.
Last Tuesday, we reported the debut of the next LEGO Star Wars collectible minifigure hailing from the latest episode of the Star Wars saga. Originally discovered via LEGO fan forums, this newest LEGO Star Wars collectible joins the ranks of the LEGO Star Wars R3-M2 (40268) and Scarif Stormtrooper (40176) minifigures that are tied-in with The Force Awakens and Rogue One respectively. Similarly, the LEGO Star Wars The Last Jedi DJ (40298) minifigure is also expected to be the next gift with purchase freebie via shop.LEGO.com.
True to their promise, Universal Pictures has released its first official trailer of Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom last Friday after a brief, baby Blue teaser earlier last month. The official trailer gives us a glimpse of the back story between our dino heroes and advocates, Claire Dearing (Bryce Dallas Howard) and Owen (Chris Pratt), and the length that the their team will go through to save the remaining dinosaurs in Isla Nublar. In case you missed it, here’s the film’s official trailer which is currently trending over at YouTube.
