jurassic world 1

We mentioned yesterday about the latest Star Wars themed app that was released by LEGO in connection with a new Disney XD series – the LEGO Freemaker Adventures – which will debut this summer. As it seems, LEGO has another app in store, and this time the adventure is brought to the ground at an epic, Jurassic scale.

The LEGO Jurassic World app weaves together all the storylines from four epic Jurassic Park movies, recreating the most unforgettable and intense action sequences from the series, viewed from the creative eyes of LEGO and delivered in the most humorous way that TT Games are known for.

Set in the no man’s islands of Isla Nublar and Isla Sorna, you get to play the role of a brick-rendered dinosaur as you explore and populate the islands.

PlayStation users of LEGO Marvel Avengers are still in a swoon with the barrage of DLCs (downloadable content) that Warner Bros Interactive has recently released. This time around, PlayStation’s US blogsite announced another sweet exclusive offering with the Ant-Man Character and Level Pack DLC. Available as a free download for all PlayStation 3 and 4 users who purchased a copy LEGO Marvel Avengers, the newest DLC is based on the story and characters of last year’s Disney Marvel movie Ant-Man.

Warner Bros Interactive announced the said release coupled with a new trailer showcasing some of the movie’s super-powered characters such as Scott Lang in his own Ant-Man suit, Dr. Hank Pym with his original, classic Ant-Man suit, Darren Cross aka the Yellow Jacket, Hope Van Dyne, Janet Van Dyne (The Wasp), Cassie Lang, and of course, our most favorite ant, Ant-Thony. The DLC sees Ant-Man and the rest of the team embarks in a new mission to reach the Yellow Jacket, told in a most exceptionally funny narrative by Michael Pena who also played Ant-Man’s fast-talking friend, Luis.

maze 5

We have seen a lot of positive feedback and review with regards to Jason Allemann’s LEGO Ideas Maze 21305 since it was released April 1. Buy via Amazon!


This latest LEGO Ideas set goes beyond the usual puzzle maze game by allowing players to build their own custom-made labyrinth by easily swapping maze plates without breaking the entire maze apart. So whether tweaking its level of difficulty, or to simply make it more fun, the flexibility that the LEGO Ideas Maze offers is simply exponential.

maze 4 maze 3  maze 1

Jason goes out of his way to demonstrate this through one of the videos that he posted at his YouTube channel, JK Brickworks. He demonstrates how you can add another level of fun with your LEGO Ideas Maze by motorizing it. Watch this.

As you can see, Jason draws his inspiration for this customized maze by observing how mini-golf courses work. It features some dynamic obstacles powered by the tilt mechanism and a motorized windmill.

This is just one of the many examples that he offers over at this website on how you can play with the LEGO Ideas Maze. Whether you’re a beginner or an expert in your own terms, there’s a maze that will surely test your nerves of steel.

On a side note, if you happen to live in Canada and you’ll be nearby the Yorkdale LEGO Store in Toronto on Saturday, April 9, be sure to drop by and say hi to Jason. He’ll be there from 11AM to 3PM for some chat time and other cool activities. You can even bring your own LEGO Ideas Maze set and have it signed by Jason himself. Who knows, you may even get a tip or two from this LEGO master builder.

LEGO’s upcoming Disney XD series LEGO Star Wars: The Freemaker Adventures follows the family of space scavengers who build and sell starships from the scoured debris of space battles strewn throughout the galaxy.  Based on the events of Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back and Episode VI: The Return of the Jedi, the Freemakers are thrown in an epic struggle against the Empire when their youngest discovers a natural affinity with the Force.


Though the much awaited LEGO Star Wars animated series is still slated to debut in summer, LEGO gives us an early glimpse of what it is like to live together with Freemakers through its latest app, the LEGO Star Wars Force Builder. This newest LEGO app takes you inside the massive space station called the Wheel where you will find the family’s Freemaker Salvage and Repair Shop. Using the power of the Force, you can help the Freemakers build the most unique ships in the galaxy.

Just two weeks ago, we reported that LEGO has in the works another direct-to-DVD feature animation that showcases our favorite DC Superheroes in Justice League Gotham City Breakout. The details about the movie were scant, save for the fact that the movie is offered along with an exclusive Blue Nightwing minifigure.

lego_justice_league_-_gotham_breakout_figurine_nordic-36617963-bckl now gives us a major reveal about this latest Warner Bros Animation offering that comes as a great precursor for the LEGO Batman Movie in 2017. After several days of waiting, we finally have the official trailer for the Justice League Gotham City Breakout. Watch this.

Though Warner Bros mentions at the end that Gotham City Breakout will be available in DVD, Bluray and Digital HD, they are still quite mum on the release dates. I guess they’re not worrying about the fans’ reactions, unlike the way Superman worries about how Batman will give him ‘The Look’.

Batman look

Thankfully though, WB gave us a peek on the movie’s synopsis as follows:

Fighting crime is a full-time job and Batman NEVER takes a vacation. That is until he finally agrees to let Batgirl and Nightwing take him on a long overdue trip – leaving Gotham City under the watchful eye of the Justice League in LEGO® DC Comics Super Heroes – Justice League: Gotham City Breakout. 

When Batgirl and Nightwing take Batman on a trip down memory lane – literally – to visit one of the key mentors from his formative years, it’s up to the Justice League to keep Gotham City crime-free. But neither situation proves to be a “vacation” as the Bat trio encounters old nemeses on their adventure, and the Justice League discovers just how busy Batman is on a regular basis. It’s a brick-tastic battle on two fronts as Batman, Batgirl and Nightwing take on Bane and Deathstroke, while the Justice League – with some help from a few Teen Titans – fends off an assault by many of Batman’s infamous adversaries to ensure Gotham City’s safety. 



Thanks to Brick Fan for giving us a heads up on this.



Perhaps if there is something good that came out from the early release of LEGO’s hottest CMFs at Legoland Billund and some parts of the world ahead of its official release date, is that we had an early look and review of the these Disney Collectible Minifigures (71012).

img_5796.jpg img_5798.jpg


From close up images and even packaging designs, fans all over the world closely monitored these developments so we know what to expect once these minifigs arrive in the US on May 1. One important question to ponder is how these minifigures are distributed within in its 60-piece box packaging. Thanks to Dutch website LCC Builders (via Brickset), we already have an answer to this. According to site’s founder Sophia, LEGO’s 18 Disney minifigures are distributed as follows:

As you may have noticed, one can still have a complete set even if they are still unopened making their values even higher later on. Here’s a snapshot of all the Disney minifigures, straight out of the box, courtesy of the Legends Brick Group.
