2018 LEGO Batman Movie Sets Revealed!

After much speculation last July on what could be included in the list of LEGO’s 2018 sets including those from the LEGO Batman Movie theme, we now have a pretty good look at the latest TLBM sets that are slated for release in January. Courtesy of The Brothers Brick, this next wave of sets from the LEGO Batman Movie includes a very nice collection of minifigures that most fans are waiting for. Other than the 2nd series of TLBM Collectible Minifigures, these sets have an awesome roster of new minifigs that will complement both Batman’s Rogue List and those from the Justice League. We don’t have a piece count, pricing and official product description just yet, but we’ll sure keep you posted once LEGO officially releases them. For the mean time, let’s enjoy these images.

The Bat-Dune Buggy (70918) 

Minifigures: Batman, Captain Boomerang

70918 1

The Justice League Anniversary Party (70919)

Minifigures: El Dorado, Green Arrow, Hawkgirl, Superman, Wonder Dog

Minifigures: Batgirl, Crazy Quilt, Gentleman Ghost, Harley Quinn

70921 1

The Bat-Space Shuttle (70923)

Minifigures: Batman, Batman (Firestarter Suit), Batman (Space Suit), Dick Grayson, Reggae Man

70923 1

For what it looks like, the Bat-Dune Buggy is perhaps the smallest build in this series, with a closer to the film rendition of Captain Boomerang as compared to how we see him in LEGO DC Comics Super Heroes Killer Croc Sewer Smash (76055). The build of the Bat-Dune Buggy is also kind of sleek and will be a good addition to the theme’s other smaller builds such as the Catwoman Catcycle Chase (70902).

It’s nice of LEGO to finally grant what most LEGO DC fans are asking for with the inclusion of a Justice League Anniversary Party set. However, I must admit that the overall build of this set is a bit of underwhelming. I’m glad that we can somehow complete our roster of JL minifigures, but the stage itself is a bit out of proportions as we see in the film – smaller than what I expected. But for all it’s worth, and especially if you’re aiming to collect all known LEGO Justice League minifigures and see all of them hanging around, then the Justice League Party (70919) is a good set to begin with. Too bad there is no Gleek minifigure, to accompany Wonder Dog.

The Egghead Mech Food Fight (70920) will probably be my personal pick. LEGO nailed it with this one, combining both the intimidating features of a battle suit and the wackiness of having fried eggs as your armaments of choice. The build of Egghead’s mech suit is reminiscent of 2007’s LEGO Exo-Force theme were LEGO explored the possibilities of creating high tech mechanical battle suits piloted by battle-ready minifigs. Since it is supposedly a food fight, take it to LEGO to throw in one of the experts in the field (pun intended): Condiment King. It was already teased several times that the dispenser-wielding baddie will be part of an official LEGO set and I’m glad that he finally did. The stud shooter is one of my favorite piece/element in any LEGO set, but I feel that it will be much better for Condiment King if he will be holding a pair of actual dispensers instead. Nevertheless, I love this set and I hope to have my hands on this one once it goes for sale in January.

Those who are looking for Gentleman Ghost will be delighted to know that he is now officially available as a minifig that comes with the Harley Quinn Cannonball Attack (70921). Not only that, but LEGO throws in another new minifigure in the character of Crazy Quilt. I have to say that LEGO did a really nice job in offering a crazy cool collection of baddies in this series.

For what it looks like, this last set in this series is the second TLBM set that offers a sort of bat suit collection, next to the earlier Batcave Break-In (70909) set. The Bat Space Shuttle (70923) not only offers a nice addition to the Dark Knight’s collection of signature vehicles such as a kayak, cart, and a space shuttle (I just couldn’t imagine why Batman will need a space shuttle in his Batcave), but we also have another collection of Batman’s outfits such as the Firestarter, Reggae Man, and the Bat Spacesuit. Know I’ve really lost count on how many LEGO batsuits are there in existence.

The 2018 LEGO Batman Movie sets are expected to hit toy stores in January next year so we can expect to see more official images and product descriptions during the next few weeks.

Strike Fear (and Fun) On The Hearts of Pirates With This LEGO POTC Dead Men Tell No Tales Mini Silent Mary MOC!

Who says only minifigure pirates can have fun on the high seas? The pride of the Spanish Royal Navy is not the kind to shrink down on any type of challenge – even in a micro-build form! Tyler is back once more for another fun and creative build which will strike fear – or should I say fun – in the hearts of the haughtiest pirate. We saw it first as an official LEGO set when the LEGO Pirates of the Caribbean Silent Mary (71042) was unveiled during this year New York Toy Fair, and this time you can add it to your growing roster of custom microbuilds thanks to Tyler.

scaled silent mary mini lego

Based from the most recent POTC film, Dead Men Tell No Tales, this fun, little build is also a bit of a challenge for our Master Builder because of its odd shape and design, unlike the first ones that Tyler did for this series. As you may have seen from the film, this spectre of a ship has been notably lacking in terms of its hull so it’s kind of clever of Tyler to add those clear, round brick pieces to stabilize and make the ship look elevated. The tooth and clip pieces were very helpful to recreate the broken and ghostly, rib cage-like hull of the Silent Mary. It also helps to convey that rotted-out look on Captain Salazar’s phantom ship.

Silent Mary 3

Like we see in the film, Tyler opted to have a play feature added to this Silent Mary microbuild by attaching a hinge on the front portion of the ship that lifts up as it swallows other ships along its path.

Silent Mary 4

On the other side, you’ll also see another play feature where the ship’s mast can be lowered as if it is dangling over the water like the ghostly, dilapidated ship that it is. Tyler also added some cannons on each side using those handy, minifigure binocular pieces to replicate the ship’s armaments. It’s kind of cool of how it turned out actually.

Silent Mary 5 Silent Mary 6


Another fun challenge in building this MOC is how Tyler managed to recreate the Silent Mary’s sails. Unlike the ones before it where Tyler used those curved slope pieces to re-enact the sails, this time, he opted to use several tooth/plate pieces to make it look like the tattered, torn sails which we saw in the movie. Tyler also added a bit of motion in these sails by having it dangling on several clips.

Silent Mary 7

And of course, Captain Salazar can fit nicely in the back, sitting in command of his ghostly, fun ship.

Silent Mary 8

Here’s Tyler once again with this nice, little build.

Go Mini in The High Seas With These Custom LEGO Pirates of the Caribbean Queen Anne’s Revenge Microbuild!

It’s a nice Sunday afternoon to conquer that sea of bricks that you have lying around, and what better way to do that than to try this next wave of LEGO Pirates of the Caribbean MOCs from our Master Builder Tyler! We saw the swashbuckling, chibi sized Black Pearl and Flying Dutchman MOCs conquer the high seas, and this time around another of Tyler’s creations enter the fray.

First off, we have another ship straight from 2011’s Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides and at the helm of it is the fearsome pirate, the infamous Blackbeard (well, at least in the film and not in this pretty neat MOC). The original Queen Anne’s Revenge may look frighteningly scary, but this next microbuild from Tyler playfully takes away all of that – I say that even the minifigure version of Blackbeard will have a blast riding on this one.

LEGO actually turned this intimidating ship into an official set when it introduced the LEGO Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides Queen Anne’s Revenge (4195) back in 2011. Coming in at 1,094 this now retired D2C (direct-to-consumer) set is sort of the capstone of the subtheme. Following the tradition of LEGO’s microbuilds, Tyler now presents us a more fun and playable alternative to this larger version.

scaled Queen Anne Square Image 1024x1024 e1509915015405

This next mini-pirate ship is probably the coolest ship of all in the film’s series, especially with all of its red, intimidating sails proudly sailing. That sort of grandness of the Queen Anne’s Revenge was captured by Tyler in cute, LEGO form. He even managed to use several gold LEGO pieces to imitate the colors that adorn the sides and front of the ship.

Image 2

Similar to his previous POTC microbuild techniques, Tyler recreated the sails using several mudguard pieces to give it that curved natural look. These curved slopes are perfect for these creations and seem to be designed specifically for this purpose.

And of course, Blackbeard’s minifigure fits nicely into this mini Queen Anne’s Revenge as it sails towards its next conquest.

Here’s Tyler with more on this fun build.

LEGO Ideas: Women of NASA (21312) is an Inspiring Set for Display.

It’s always an inspiring moment whenever a toy line decides to honor a real person by having a toy crafted in his or her image. In fact, LEGO is one of the leading toy brands in giving out these tributes for some of the pioneering figures of our history.

LEGO has been offering sets that seeks to inspire young minds to pursue careers in science and technology based on the accomplishments made by the most brilliant minds in science. The latest LEGO Ideas set seems to be a shoutout to previously released ones under the same theme: the first being the NASA Mars Science Laboratory Curiosity Rover (21104), and the other as a tribute to women in the STEM careers which is the Research Institute (21110). This time around, the LEGO  Ideas: Women of NASA (21312) is the next building set in the LEGO Ideas line that pays tribute to the invaluable contributions made by the most outstanding female scientists in the field of space exploration.

The Women of NASA (21312) set is the brainchild of science writer AFOL Maia Weinstock (aka 20tauri over at the LEGO Ideas website). After gaining the much coveted fan support and approval of the LEGO Review and Design Teams, this set is now a reality and is slated to be released to the public on November 1st.

21312 1

The Women of NASA concept was Weinstock’s second attempt to submit an original project for LEGO Ideas that depicts women empowerment, the first being a fan submission that shows real-life women Supreme Court Justices which she aptly titled Legal Justice League – Women of the Supreme Court in LEGO. However, the LEGO Ideas Review Team declined to give it the green light for reasons that it is against LEGO’s policy of depicting any person in the government, or of politics, political symbols, campaigns or movements.

Though Maia’s first original fan submission was turned down, the approval of her second one is in itself a source of inspiration. The LEGO Ideas Women of NASA (21312) is perhaps a step further in shattering the age-old stereotype that building bricks and careers in STEM are simply just for boys. True, LEGO has delved with ideas of offering sets primarily for girls such as the Friends and Elves themes, but having the LEGO Ideas Women of NASA is a step further in teaching young, aspiring female scientists that being exceptional in the field of sciences is not determined by one’s gender.

21312 Women of NASA Cover 2

Included in the LEGO Ideas: Women of NASA (21312) set are minifigures of software engineer Margaret Hamilton, who designed the Apollo spacecraft computer software, Hubble Space Telescope head planner Nancy Roman, and astronauts Sally Ride and Mae Jemison.

Their respective display cases show props such as Hamilton’s pile of Apollo computer source code books, a model of the Hubble Telescope for Roman, and a scale space shuttle for Ride and Jemison.

21312 2

Set 21312 comes in a sturdy box while the building manual also includes biographies of the famous NASA women. All minifigures have detailed clothing detail and dual printed heads. It’s a must-buy and build for history-buff LEGO collectors.

The LEGO Ideas Women of NASA (21312) is a 231-piece set retailing for $25, and will be available to all by November 1st at all LEGO Brand stores and via shop.LEGO.com.

So what do you think brick fans, will you pick this one up once it hit shelves on November 1? Let us know in the comments below.

The Royal Academy; LEGO MOC

Markus Rollbühler creates an absolutely stunning medieval school which is jam-packed with loads of detail and unusual parts usages. The ‘Royal Academy’ is part of a forum based RPG world called ‘The Nine Kingdoms.’

But even without knowing the characters and history, this building has a visual story unto itself. I would be hard pressed to point out all of the imaginative connections and NPU (Nice Parts Usage), but note a couple of them like the hockey sticks and baseball bats. 26193196469 4b9bb37351 z

Even the color blocking grants this temple of knowledge a warm cozy vibe. This is the kind of place you could spend long late hours reading scrolls by candle light.

All I can say is; I wish I went to this school.

A Review of The LEGO Ninjago Movie Ice Tank (30427) Polybag.

Compared to The LEGO Batman Movie where the minifigures are the most in the spotlight (after all, it’s BATMAN), in The LEGO Ninjago Movie which premiered last month the figures/characters are equally identified with the sweet vehicles and mechs they ride. In fact, the machines are often the subject of choice for plenty of promotional material for the film.

In the wake of the movie’s release came – of course – the landslide of tie-in Lego Ninjago products to hype it up, from the minifigures to the vehicles they rode in. Perhaps one of the standout designs for the whole adventure was the wedge-shaped Ice Tank piloted by Zane the Ice Ninja (voiced by Zach Woods).

LEGO pretty much agrees with the fan-audience opinion, if going by the effort they put into designing the real-plastic counterpart of the “LEGO Ninjago Movie” mech. The Ice Tank is even the centerpiece of a “Make and Take” special event this upcoming Saturday at certain Toys ‘R’ Us stores in the UK.


The actual, brick-built version of Zane’s mech – the LEGO Ninjago Movie Ice Tank (70616) – is undoubtedly sweet, but at 914 pieces to work with, that is not one that a newcomer might actually choose to pick up and start building.

Fortunately, LEGO has got the rookie builders covered too, with a smaller and more basic-skill alternative mini version in polybag . It’s just the thing for its 6-12 age bracket, or simply those who are lacking in shelf space for the normal-sized one.

30427 1 1

The LEGO Ninjago Movie Ice Tank (30427) polybag is a new major achievement in downscaling LEGO models. When you put the finished polybag version next to the larger 70616, they could easily pass for parent and child, LEGO brick-wise. Builders will be amazed at how 71 pieces can come together to form a truly mobile Ice Tank with approximated details and fully-working miniature tank treads.

Needless to say, this is a worthy buy for fans of The LEGO Ninjago Movie, especially those who are only now getting a start in the wonderful world of building with LEGO.

You’ll Gonna Love This Nightmarish MOC From Tyler – The Custom LEGO The Nightmare Before Christmas Jack Skellington House!

This next MOC from Master Builder Tyler will make you shiver in nightmarish delight. Alright, I know… enough with the Halloween puns already, since this next brick-built rendition from Tyler will surely add smiles to any LEGO and Tim Burton fan (myself included).

Nightmare Before Christmas posterIf you grew up in the 90s, then it’s hard to miss out on one of Tim Burton’s classic cult favorite, The Nightmare Before Christmas. For those of you who are not around yet during this time (it was released in 1993), it tells the story of the King of Halloween Town, the self-absorbed, but good-willed Jack Skellington as he tries to take over Christmas and spread holiday joy – but in his own terms. As you may have guessed, that led to some seriously, nasty problems. If you haven’t seen the movie yet, I highly recommend that you watch it.

As a tribute to one of the most loved and impressive films of that time, Tyler impressively managed to recreate Jack’s iconic home using a combination of impressive building techniques and a flair of creativity. The result? Jack Skellington’s House in magnificent LEGO form! Let’s take a closer look.


To begin with, let’s try to look at the impressive features of this MOC starting from the bottom, and working our way up. Beginning with its front gates, Tyler managed to recreate the entrance to this spooky house using gate pieces attached to angled columns. On top of the columns, you can see how Tyler cleverly recreated the eerie cat-like statues using a combination of clips and several robot arm pieces. When you open the gate, you’ll see that Tyler has demonstrated yet again, his exceptional building skills when he recreates that rickety, ramshackle of a stairs. Though it was a bit longer, windy, and twisted as you can see from the film, the stairs on this MOC needed to be a bit shorter to make the build stable and sturdy. Nevertheless, Tyler still managed to capture that Tim Burton feel with this set.

Jack Skellington 2
Jack Skellington 3

Leading on top of the steps is Jack’s one-eyed front door. Tyler added a typical eye piece (I’m assuming it was from a Mixel set) that represents a peek hole which is actually an eyeball embedded on the surface. The door actually opens and leads to a rather narrow corridor, and because of the relatively small space, there is nothing much to add to this section, which is fine since most of the build’s highlights or features are focused on the next part of Jack Skellington’s house.

Jack Skellington 4
Jack Skellington 5

If you turn it around, you’ll see that Tyler added more details such as holders to place one or two spiders, and a ladder that leads to the upper room of the house. Going back to the front, you’ll see that Tyler also managed to emphasize the house’s shabby, dilapidated look using building techniques that allows for angled columns and roofs.

Jack Skellington 6
Jack Skellington 7

On the sides, you’ll see another ingenious way on how Tyler achieved those sloped walls of Jack Skellington House, keeping up with Tim Burton’s vision of a gravity-defying structure.

Jack Skellington 8

Moving forward, we have a balcony with that same ramshackle feel, and windows on the side that gives you that Victorian, gothic look. The interior is jam-packed with nice details as well, including a chair for a minifigure, Christmas decors and some items that represent Jack’s horrific gifts to children on Christmas.

Jack Skellington 9 Jack Skellington 10 02





Now the roof was structurally impressive to say the least and perhaps the most telling feature of this MOC. The odd sloping angles are spot on, and the inclusion of the weirdly twisted chimney, tops it off. But that’s not all – it even opens in the middle to reveal the interior, allowing you easier access to its play features.

Jack Skellington 11

And finally, we have our custom-printed, Jack Skellington and Sally minifigures! I really love how these guys turned out – with the fine, ragdoll prints on Sally, and the black and white stripes on Jack. Both of them have side, back and arm printing, while Jack comes with two minifig heads each of which showing a different expression. Perhaps one thing that I would like to see on these custom minifigs are dual printed heads and perhaps, an accessory or two.

In case you haven’t seen it yet, here’s Tyler on his take with the custom LEGO The Nightmare Before Christmas Jack Skellington House.

If you love this one and would like to give it try, be sure to check out BuildBetterBricks.com to see how you can come up with your very own nightmarish creation. Purchasing this set of building instructions allows you access to its full, PDF file together with a parts list and a convenient Stud.io file for easy access and purchasing over at Bricklink.


So what do you think brick fans, will you give this a try?

Tremble at the Might of This Custom LEGO Lord of the Rings Oliphant Set!

If there is one particular scene in the Lord of the Rings trilogy that really sends shivers down my spine is that scene in The Return of the King where the noble Army of Rohan was overwhelmed at the sight of several gigantic beasts looming on the horizon (similar to how the Resistance may have probably felt when faced with a line of formidable First Order Heavy Assault Walkers as we saw from The Last Jedi trailer). Perhaps other than the TLOR classic fight scene between the hellish Balrog and Gandalf (which Tyler impressively re-enacted in brick form with his LEGO LOTR Custom Balrog Battle set), the war elephants used in the Battle of Pelennor Fields is one  LOTR scene that I really wish LEGO has included in this theme. Thankfully, Brickshow’s master builder Tyler knows how much we love Lord of the Rings, and has a good grasp of LOTR lore as well. For his third LOTR-themed MOC, we now present to you, the mighty and proud custom LEGO Lord of the Rings Oliphant!

LEGO Lord of the Rings Oliphant

Fighting the Oliphant in battle as seen in The Return of the King, proved to be quite a Herculian task for our heroes. The mere sight of the massive war animal is enough to make even the bravest warrior cast doubt if such a creature can be taken down. This overwhelming feeling of sheer size and raw strength was perfectly captured by Tyler in this custom built LEGO Oliphant. Now honestly, we wished LEGO could have made one, but it was a bummer that LEGO didn’t make that call in adding the Oliphant in the TLOR line-up. So for now, let’s see all the nice features that Tyler included in his latest LEGO TLOR wishlist.

First off, this custom LEGO Lord of the Rings Oliphant has excellent articulation in all of its four massive legs starting with its knees using Technic joint pieces. Tyler also used sturdy ball joints for the ankles which can flex and be posed in various directions. The hips of the Oliphant are also articulated which allows the legs to be rotated at various angles, allowing the behemoth to be posed in different positions.

oliphant3 1024x1024

The Oliphant’s head is attached to its body using a strong ball joint that also acts as a support to counter the weight of the head. It also allows the head to be moved from left to right, creating a swaying motion as seen in the film. This swaying motion of the Oliphant’s head, coupled with its menacing 2 pairs of tusks, is perhaps the most devastating feature of the Oliphant in the battlefield. The trunk and primary tusks are also articulated using a variety of Mixel joints, allowing it a more flexible and fluid motion, while the jaw can also be opened and closed using a hinge.

This LEGO Oliphant also comes with a variety of battle accessories as we see in the film, including a chain connected to its tusks to use in sweeping the battlefield, and the menacing, three-tiered Haradrim tower mounted on its back. The tower also comes equipped with several spear launchers to add an extra punch to the Oliphant’s lethal capabilities.

One of the best parts in this scene is when Legolas single-handedly defeated an Oliphant using a combination of acrobatic moves and top-notch archery skills. This particular scene has been nicely re-enacted by Tyler by adding a simple carrottop piece on the sides of the Oliphant’s legs, allowing Legolas’ minifig counterpart to grab hold of it and maneuver his way up to the tower. As seen from the film, these are actually arrows that got stuck to the beast’s extraordinarily thick skin. It is so embedded in the Oliphant’s skin that the arrow itself can support the weight of Legolas.

Overall, this is such an excellent MOC that LEGO designers may find worth considering. Both AFOLs and KFOLs will certainly appreciate its play features and aesthetic value. Frankly, there is still a lot of potential in the LEGO Lord of the Rings theme that I sincerely wish LEGO will give it a second look and perhaps create more sets than just the 16 builds that they previously came up with. However, if you are impressed as much as I am with this latest LOTR MOC wish set from Tyler (you may also want to check out his LEGO LOTR Custom Balrog and Prancing Pony sets), then you have the option of building one of your own by simply heading over to BuildBetterBricks.com to purchase and download this MOC’s building instructions.
