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.

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.

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.

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.

More LEGO Overwatch Sets Slated to be Released in 2019

Since its debut in October last year, the LEGO Overwatch theme has slowly gained a following. After more than 8 months since they were introduced, fans of LEGO’s brick-built rendition of arguably the most popular first-person Blizzard shooter video game in Asia, are now pondering what’s next for LEGO Overwatch. The question seems to have been answered at this year’s Nuremberg International Toy Fair in Germany. And as Brick Fanatics reports, we can expect more LEGO Overwatch sets this 2019, with two possible sets still waiting to be revealed.

According to Activision and Blizzard, they still have a lot of plans going on for this year especially with regards to their collaboration with LEGO. I guess that’s bound to happen considering the wealth of characters and content that the highly popular video game offers.

Toy and apparel offerings for Overwatch continue to expand throughout 2019. LEGO® Group kicked off the year with the release of the first ever LEGO Overwatch product line, which will feature new product launches later this year at various price points.

With sets 75976 and 75977 teased at the Nuremberg Toy Fair, it is fair to assume that LEGO still has a handful of LEGO Overwatch sets waiting to be revealed. For the meantime, be sure to check back on all the LEGO Overwatch sets that were released so far. As of the moment, we have six sets that are currently available under this theme, and the Omnic Bastion (75987) set that was sold exclusively at Blizzard’s online shop. Just so you know, Amazon is running a sale on these sets at great discounts. Simply click on the following links to know more about this.

 

 

Warner Bros and TT Games To Announce a New LEGO Video Game at E3 2019

It’s kind of hard to miss the fact that LEGO is on a roll as far as developing video games are concerned. After the announcement of two LEGO mobile games namely the LEGO Legacy: Heroes Unboxed and LEGO Tower, it seems that a new LEGO video game is about to make its debut by next month. To be launched across multiple gaming platforms, the news was announced by long-time partner Warner Bros and TT Games, and the timing of the reveal couldn’t be better – the new mystery video game will be revealed just in time with this year’s E3 which will happen in Los Angeles, California from June 11 to 13, 2019.

The news was shared by Playstation fan site, Pure Playstation. Though the gaming titans made it clear that they will be a launching a new LEGO-inspired video game at E3, WB and TT Games are still mum on what this will be. There are likely candidates though, and the signs seem to point to a new LEGO Star Wars game since it has been almost three years since we had the LEGO Star Wars The Force Awakens video game. And now that the Skywalker saga is about to come to an end with the final Star Wars installment, Rise of Skywalker, perhaps now is the best time to finish this gaming installment as well.

New LEGO Video Game

If you recall, TLG tends to gravitate towards completing its licensed video game sagas, similar to the movies and franchises they were based on. We have a LEGO Incredibles video game that features content based on the first and second films. The LEGO Marvel Collection likewise features all three previously released LEGO Marvel video games: LEGO Marvel Super Heroes, LEGO Marvel Avengers, and LEGO Marvel Super Heroes 2. And of course, we can’t leave out the LEGO Harry Potter Collection combining all seven years of Potterlore in two convenient discs. Needless to say, now is the time for that long overdue LEGO Star Wars video game follow-up. Come to think of it, it was also in the month of June when the LEGO Star Wars The Force Awakens video game was released, and it was in 2016’s E3 when the game was first introduced.

As much as I would like to see a LEGO Star Wars Video Game Collection, I have to say that all of this is just speculation from my part until such time that we actually hear from LEGO during next month’s  Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3). For the meantime, we just have to patiently wait for the next two weeks. Thanks to Brick Fanatics for the tip.
