As we prep the stage – or in this, case our blogsite and YouTube channel – for the opening of the 2018 New York Toy Fair, we’re glad that Brick Show Brian is on the floor to give you live updates as they happen at LEGO’s Booth #1335 of the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center.
Just in time before the gates of the New York Toy Fair opens on Saturday, LEGO has opted to reveal the full line-up of cast for its LEGO Powerpuff Girls sets. Yesterday, we had an official word from LEGO about the rumored return of the girls in minifigure forms. Frankly, this doesn’t come as a surprise since we already saw how the superpowered girls from Townsville looked like as part of the now discontinued LEGO Dimensions sets. What comes as a nice surprise is the inclusion of what most of us have been waiting for: the most adorable evil primate of all: Mojo Jojo!
Coming in hot from their reveal of the Kessel Run Millennium Falcon (75212) this Valentine’s, LEGO has dropped another reveal to further sweeten our day. Now before we get too excited about this latest news, we should bear in mind that there is not much of a difference with regards to how these minifigures look like as compared to their first debut as part of the last wave of LEGO Dimensions sets. If you recall, we also featured a video where Brian gave us some interesting details on how the upcoming LEGO Powerpuff Girls will look like, describing in detail these sets’ features and the minifigures included in them. However, earlier today, LEGO has finally broken its months-long silence, and finally gave us its first official confirmation of the girls having their own LEGO theme.
Since last year, it seems that the fate of our heroes from Knighton has been hanging by the thread, particularly when the news of the apparent cancellation of the LEGO Nexo Knights theme has been reported by Blocks Magazine. Truth be told, there have been times that the theme seemed to have rebounded, with even two consecutive waves of new sets released since then. It was somehow rather sketchy if the news really has some weight on it, or were just another rumor that has to be dismissed.
After LEGO Rebrick’s Great Mountain Chase photography contest, comes the next high-octane competition that will test your brick-building mettle. Season 8 of LEGO Ninjago has introduced the latest bunch of baddies that is causing mayhem in the city of Ninjago. The Sons of Garmadon is bent on resurrecting their master Lord Garmadon – the ninjas’ former enemy – at all cost. It’s up for the young heroes of Ninjago to foil their plans and retrieve the powerful Oni Masks.
