In the UK’s LEGOLAND theme park at Windsor, the excitement has finally died down following the Royal Wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle in the nearby namesake castle. LEGOLAND Windsor’s brick tribute will be remaining on display for some time yet, but there are other occasions to prepare for.
Summer is still far from over and yet LEGO is now giving us another early Christmas treat with the release of another Advent Calendar following the reveal of those from the LEGO Friends and LEGO Star Wars theme. I’m a fan of these LEGO City Advent Calendars, and thankfully Promobricks have uploaded our first image of the set’s box art.
It seems were getting our first look at another Christmas seasonal set, followed by the reveal of the LEGO Friends Advent Calendar 2018 (41353). It’s not yet summer, but LEGO has already given us a taste of things to come with a new seasonal set, the LEGO Creator Christmas Train (30543) polybag spotted over at Amazon Germany.
It began in January, with the anticlimactic results of the LEGO Ideas Second 2017 Review, that is, the one where none of the entries passed. One of those failed submissions was a set recreation of one of the most iconic scene from Empire Strikes Back where Darth Vader declares “I am your father.”
One of the themed areas for the LEGOLAND Windsor Resort theme park is Miniland, where a variety of LEGO reproductions of famous buildings around the world are on display. Part of Miniland’s UK exhibits is Buckingham Palace, and this model building just got spruced up in light of recent events.
