Detroit Steel and Ms. Marvel Gets The LEGO Treatment In These Official 2017 LEGO Marvel Superheroes Sets.

We knew since last September that LEGO has lined up a couple of Marvel and DC-inspired sets under its Superheroes theme, which includes a handful of new Marvel Mighty Micro sets and another that saw the debut of the Red Hulk in his bigfig form. It was also speculated at that time that Ms. Marvel, together with Iron Man’s rival, the menacing Detroit Steel, will also have their very own LEGO sets. These unconfirmed reports are now finally settled when Amazon Japan posted official images of 2017 LEGO Marvel Superheroes featuring the likes of super heroine Kamala Khan, SHIELD Agent Coulson, and Tony Stark’s adversary, Justin Hammer. According to Google’s rough translation, these sets are expected to be released to the general public by December 2 next week. The box art also indicates that the minifigure forms of Iron Man and Super Adaptoid sport a new power blast play feature.

We also have our first look at the official box art for the LEGO Marvel Superheroes Hulk vs Red Hulk 76078 which made their debut during the San Diego Comic Con 2016 last July.

Iron Man: Detroit Steel Strikes (76077)

It is interesting to note that Brickset has already listed six sets featuring the highly anticipated MCU films Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 and Spider-Man: Homecoming. With the climax of the Marvel Cinematic Universe almost upon us, being a LEGO and Marvel fan has never been this exciting.

WATCH: Latest LEGO Disney Frozen Northern Lights Trailer.

Disney has just released its official trailer for its next series of animated shorts, LEGO Disney Frozen Northern Lights. As mentioned by the Hollywood Reporter back in June, as a spin-off from Disney’s wildly popular 2013 film, Frozen, the animated short is based on a deluxe novelization that Random House published back in July ahead of an extended collection of books. The storyline is then given the LEGO treatment and retold into four animated shorts featuring the original characters and voice cast from the movie:  Kristen Bell (Anna), Idina Menzel (Elsa), Jonathan Groff (Kristoff), and Josh Gad (Olaf). A new character, Little Rock, will also be introduced.

Here’s the official synopsis of LEGO Disney’s Frozen Northern Lights courtesy of Random House, followed by its official trailer.

Anna, Elsa, Kristoff and their friends from Disney Frozen are helping Little Rock the troll earn his tracking crystal. Join them as they embark on a mountain adventure under the Northern Lights!

LEGO Disney’s Frozen Northern Lights will air on the Disney Channel starting December 9, at 8PM.

A First Look at the LEGO Creator Blue Express Train 31054.

Those who are into collecting LEGO train sets will probably be excited about this piece of news. Thanks to Zusammengebaut, we now how have official images of yet another LEGO Creator set to be released this winter of 2017. The LEGO Creator Blue Express Train 31054 follows the wave of 2017 LEGO Creators sets that we featured earlier, and also highlights a similar 3-in-1 function following a steam locomotive design. It can be changed into two kinds of locomotive, and a caboose. The set is expected to come in at 71 pieces and it is assumed that the train rails may come in printed on the inside part of the packaging which is pretty cool if that is the case. This is one set that will surely stand out among next year’s Creator line. Though the LEGO Blue Express Train is pretty neat, the only let-down is that in order to have a complete train system you must purchase two additional sets. However, my guess is that it will not be much of a problem, because regardless of the quantity, any true-blue LEGO train set fan will not mind picking up 2 or 3 of these.

2017 LEGO Disney Sets Sport a New Box Art Design, LEGO Disney Moana’s Island Adventure 41149 Revealed.

Ahead of Disney Moana’s release this week on November 23, LEGO has revealed its next Polynesian inspired set along the previously unveiled LEGO Disney Moana’s Ocean Voyage (41150). Moana’s Island Adventure (41149) features Moana in a slightly different minidoll version which fits well in a provincial island setting, and a first look at the adorable pig Pau in its minifigure version. Additionally, what is interesting to note is that the box art of these latest LEGO Disney sets uses a neutral teal color as the Brick Fan noted. My guess is that LEGO would like to do away with the pink color scheme for its Disney sets, which has been criticized before for being gender biased. What do you think?

LEGO Technic Reveals Its Latest Jet Plane and More For 2017.

A few days back, we’ve featured the first wave of LEGO Technic sets that will debut next year, and the line-up is simply gorgeous. The Technic line has been producing the most impressive sets that we’ve seen so for the past three years, and their recent offerings don’t disappoint. We now have two additional sets that LEGO has revealed under the Technic line with the Air Race Jet (42066) and Telehandler (42061). I appreciate the slim and sleek design of the Air Race Jet that takes its cue from the newer F-35 planes which are capable of vertical take-off and landing. The Telehandler is another set that offers an alternative build.

A Closer Look At Some of the Latest LEGO Creator Sets for 2017.

A couple of days back we featured four LEGO Creator sets that are set for release in 2017. We showed you the box arts, and this time, thanks to Kockashop, we now have a closer look at the fine details of these sets, together with their 3-in-1 functions. Frankly, I am pretty much impressed with the Exploration Robots (31062) – I have a feeling, as the set’s name suggests, that this brick-built robot has something more under its sleeve (or arm, if you may). Able to transform to two, animal-like robotic figures, the set becomes even more awesome by LEGO’s inclusion of a cool light brick which is used as a part of the robot’s arm, eyes and sort of jet-pack. The azure blue color motif is very nice and gives the build an organic feel rather than being mechanical.

Though smaller than their modular cousins, the Beachside Vacation (31063) and Park Street Townhouse (31065) offers an introductory building experience for those who would like to test the waters of modular building. Based on these official images, set 31065 offers a deal of flexibility in coming up with various mini-modular builds which one can experiment with. I just wish LEGO has thrown in an actual dog and a bird element instead of coming up with brick-built animals to give the set a more natural feel.

LEGO Classic Makes a Comeback This 2017 PLUS Additional Creator Sets Revealed.

There was quite a limited number of LEGO Classic sets that were released this year, and LEGO seems to have plans of revving things up for this theme come early 2017. This year only saw the release of three LEGO Classic sets, with the Creative Brick Box (10654), Creative Building Set (10702), and Creative Building Basket (10705). However, LEGO seems to intend to expand this line further with four new Classic sets, with two more sets waiting to be revealed. Though the LEGO Classic theme is rather uninteresting in terms of design options (perhaps from an AFOL’s point of view), younger builders may still have fun with these sets that features three separate builds each. It was also nice of LEGO to have these sets available for separate purchase which is kind of cost-effective, though it certainly limits the build options that one may think of. As their names suggest, each of the new LEGO Classic sets is offered in a specific color scheme that comes with at least three pre-determined build suggestions.
