LEGO Jurassic World Video Game Coming to Nintendo Switch

The LEGO Jurassic World video game has been out for quite some time. Since 2015, it has been available across major gaming platforms even older ones such as the Playstation 3 and Xbox 360. And as far as Nintendo is concerned, this collaboration between TT Fusion and WB Interactive has everything covered including being available to the 3DS and Wii U users. This time around, Nintendo Switch owners will have the chance of revisiting all four films but of course with a LEGO twist, starting September 17.

The LEGO Jurassic World for the Nintendo Switch will feature the original games based on all four Jurassic films: Jurassic Park (1993), The Lost World: Jurassic Park (1997), Jurassic Park (2001) and Jurassic World (2015). Other than its expected launch date on September 17, we still have no info on its pricing and other game features that may be unique for its Switch version. It would be interesting if WB Interactive will throw in a DLC or add a new level on the game considering that we already have Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom from last year.

The Nintendo eShop hasn’t updated its listing yet to include this latest offering so I suggest that you keep tabs with the online selling portal as well for any updates on the Switch version of the LEGO Jurassic World. For now, you may want to check out the latest LEGO Jurassic World Isla Nublar sets now available at shop.LEGO.com. Just click on the following links below.

LEGO Worlds Have Finally Come To An End

Since its launch in 2016, the LEGO open-world video game LEGO Worlds, have so much potential to become the next sandbox game to contend against Minecraft. However, after three years and a failed a Survivor DLC update, it seems that the end is finally near with LEGO Worlds. The announcement has been made via the game’s official YouTube channel when the final collection of free LEGO Worlds downloadable content has been released. Here’s the video announcement earlier in July.

The final collection of LEGO Worlds content is finally here for you to download and it’s absolutely FREE! As a thank you to all our Master Builders we’ve amassed a humongous bundle of minifigures, brick builds, props and more for you to craft even more lavish LEGO creations and continue your exciting adventures. The Showcase Collection Pack 2 is available to download right now on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC and Nintendo Switch.

Get all the AWESOMELY FREE content we released on the showcase in 2018! Download your favorite characters, builds, props and more from ALL of the amazing sets we released, including original models featuring Pirates, the Wild West, and Ancient Egypt.

This final free DLC features an array of expansion packs such as Cloud Castles, Treasure Islands, City Life, Ancient Egypt, The Wild West, Ninjago City, Carnival Fun Fair and much more. Though some fans were clearly upset about this announcement, LEGO Worlds really didn’t take flight as compared to other LEGO video games such as LEGO Marvel Superheroes and its sequel, and LEGO DC Super-Villains. The game clearly has potential, but I guess it failed to click with some gamers and fans.

So what do you think went wrong with LEGO Worlds? What improvements could have been made in order for it to be a top-LEGO video game? Share us what you think in the comments below.

As part of the winners’ Junkertown loot and bragging rights, they will also receive the limited edition Omnic Bastion (75987). If you recall, this set was exclusively offered to BlizzCon 2018 attendees and was later on listed at Blizzard’s online store.

To finally top it off, the winners will also have the chance of having a yet to be revealed LEGO Overwatch exclusive set which contains several pistol elements in unique gold variants. According to LEGO, they will only release 250 box sets with these rare LEGO pieces so this is something that you may want to include in your LEGO Overwatch collection. Though they haven’t specified on what LEGO Overwatch sets these rare pieces will be included, I guess it will be included in the limited edition LEGO Overwatch Tracer set that they will unveil later on.

SDCC 2019 Exclusive Reveal: The LEGO Marvel Spider-Man Advanced Suit

In the tradition of San Diego Comic-Con’s LEGO exclusives, LEGO has now revealed this year’s first minifigure to be made available to participants. The LEGO Marvel Spider-Man Advanced Suit takes its cue from 2018’s hit Playstation 4 video game, Spider-Man

We can assume that SDCC 2019 attendees will have access to this LEGO minifig exclusive via the same electronic raffle/system as in previous years. Furthermore, according to info coming from Allen (aka The Brick Fan), there will also be a randomized instant-win raffle event where Comic-Con attendees can get a chance to win this LEGO Marvel Spider-Man Advanced Suit exclusive.

LEGO Marvel Spider-Man Advanced Suit LEGO Marvel Spider-Man Advanced Suit

To be frank, I’m still hoping that The LEGO Group will still consider having Comic-Con LEGO exclusives such as this, be available to other LEGO fans who cannot attend these kinds of conventions for obvious geographical reasons. Perhaps LEGO can give a thought on how to make these minifigs available to the general public after a certain number of months. This will also somehow discourage scalpers for charging a ridiculous amount for this SDCC LEGO exclusives over at eBay.

Anyways, if you’re into this kind of LEGO collectibles, then be sure to bookmark and check back with us again as more info comes out regarding the details of how to avail of this minifig. I also expect additional LEGO SDCC 2019 minifigures to be revealed anytime soon.

New LEGO Overwatch 2019 Official Images Released

A week ago, the LEGO Catalog for the 2nd half of this year has confirmed the arrival of two, new LEGO Overwatch 2019 sets sometime in October. There were speculations on what they will be, with signs pointing at the duo of Junkrat and Roadhog, plus the cute but deadly Hammond, aka Wrecking Ball. This time around, Amazon UK has put an end on all the speculations and has finally revealed what we can expect from these new sets. Read on and take a look.

The first to be revealed is the LEGO Overwatch Wrecking Ball (75976) coming in at 227 pieces, expected to retail for around $20 USD. Though I am not strictly an Overwatch fan, I have to say that I’m impressed on how LEGO designers managed to faithfully capture the looks of this powerhouse mech in LEGO bricks. Based on these visuals, this build also comes in with two alternate modes – a spherical ball and a walking, offensive mech – as seen in the video game. Plus the Hammond hamster minifigure is really cute.

The next set to be revealed by Amazon UK is the LEGO Overwatch Junkrat and Roadhog (75977).  The set features the demolition duo together with their signature Junkertown Bike. I like how this brick rendition turned out, considering that the bike also comes with a display base and a bit of Junkertown scenery. As an added bonus, it also comes with a unique Pachimari printed element. Roadhog also comes in as a new bigfig mold so this is something interesting to see.

I would like to see the official product description on these new LEGO Overwatch 2019 sets to know more about their details and other play features. And since they have an October (or perhaps earlier in August) release date, then we can expect more info to come in during the next few weeks. There’s also no indication as of this posting that these sets are retailer exclusives so we can also expect to see them listed at LEGO Shop@Home soon.  Special thanks to Brickset for the heads-up!

New LEGO Overwatch Sets Coming in October 2019

If you recall earlier this month, gaming giants Activision and Blizzard confirmed that they intend to continue their collaboration with LEGO to come up with new LEGO Overwatch sets for 2019. The reveal was made during this year’s Nuremberg Toy Fair back in January, with these new LEGO Overwatch building sets labeled as sets 75976 and 75977 respectively. Thanks to a report from Promobricks, we now have an idea on when these sets will be released.

Promobricks was able to snap a photo of a physical LEGO 2HY 2019 Catalog, particularly on the page where the current LEGO Overwatch sets are located. What is interesting is that this physical copy of the German LEGO catalog indicates specifically an October release date, whereas this information is particularly omitted on its online catalog counterparts. More peculiar is the fact that the German online version was pulled out from LEGO’s servers which gives the impression that LEGO does not intend to reveal it yet.

New LEGO Overwatch Sets

We don’t have definitive info as of this posting on what these 2 new sets will be. But rumors circulating across LEGO fan communities suggests that sets 75976 and 75977 will be featuring brick-built versions of Wrecking Ball and the Junkertown Bike respectively. I guess its safe to assume that if in case these rumors turn out to be true, then we can expect to see minifig versions of Hammond (aka Wrecking Ball) and Junkrat, plus a bigfig counterpart of Roadhog.

Rumor has it that LEGO Overwatch set 75976 will feature a brick-built Wrecking Ball.
LEGO Overwatch set 75977 is rumored to feature Junkrat and Roadhog in their Junkertown Bike.

We just probably have to wait until August to see our first official images of these new LEGO Overwatch sets. And for the meantime, if you haven’t added these to your LEGO collection yet, be sure to check out the full range of LEGO Overwatch sets at LEGO Shop@Home or via Amazon.

More 2019 LEGO Minecraft Sets Revealed

International versions of the LEGO Catalog for the 2nd half of 2019 (July-December) has been released online, and with it comes three new 2019 LEGO Minecraft sets to watch out for. These sets are slated for an August release together with the recent summer 2019 LEGO Creator and City sets.  Let’s take a closer look at each of them.

The Wool Farm (21153) 

The LEGO Minecraft Wool Farm (21153) features a giant red sheep as its central build. It also includes a Steve minifigure with shears accessory, two (2) brick-built sheep, and a baby sheep.

The Blazing Bridge (21154)

This set feels like a half version of the Nether Fortress (21122) released in 2015. It has donned in armor as he fights against two (2) Blazes and a Wither Skeleton. The set also has a play feature that allows one of the Blazes to hover around.

 

The Creeper Mine (21155)

Similar to the Wool Farm (21153), the Creeper Mine’s most prominent feature is its towering Creeper build that doesn’t bode well to Steve and the gang.  The Creeper Mine is also littered with TNTs scattered throughout the mine. Minifigures include Steve, Blacksmith, Cow, Bat, Husk and Creeper.

 

These 2019 LEGO Minecraft sets are slated to be released in August. They haven’t appeared yet in shop.LEGO.com but I guess its just a matter of time before they are listed on the site. For the meantime, be sure to check out the rest of this year’s LEGO Minecraft sets. They’re now on sale over at Amazon so this is the best time to get them if you plan to add them to your collection.
