With the monumental reveal of the LEGO Disney Minifigures Series 1 being the talk of the brick-collecting world today and all, I thought now might be the ideal moment to talk about the other Disney Princess Summer 2016 set. It’s much smaller (and cheaper!) than Belle’s Enchanted Castle, but the Tangled LEGO Disney Princess Rapunzel’s Best Day Ever 41065 has a real charm for a small-sized set!Continue Reading →
I was all set to get snug into bed and rested for a brand new week, when a photo was sent to me that I just knew I wasn’t going to be able to sleep without posting and talking about. We’ve known it was coming for quite some time, but finally–finally–the LEGO Disney Minifigures Series has been revealed, including Mickey Mouse, Stitch, Maleficent and more!Continue Reading →
Valentine’s Day 2016 has come and gone, and so has the Valentine Day’s seasonal section at Target stores (and the beloved post-Valentine’s Day clearance)!
Now it’s time to look ahead, with the Target Easter seasonal section now set up in most locations, including Peeps, Cadbury Mini Eggs & Cream Eggs and… the LEGO Frozen Olaf & City Fire Car polybag sets! At least one of these sets is gonna fly out of Target stores…Continue Reading →
There are only a few more LEGO Star Wars Summer 2016 sets that debuted at New York Toy Fair 2016 to preview, and today I’m going to talk about the largest of them!
While the vehicles and minifigures in the 2016 LEGO Star Wars Clone Turbo Tank 75151 set are all ones we’ve seen before in earlier iterations, I think that the updated versions in this set will definitely go down in history as the quintessential Turbotank, Quinlan Vos and more!Continue Reading →
Time to bust out the records books, because 2016 is the year that we’re not getting just one, but two new brick-built lighthouse sets! I talked about the Creator Lighthouse Point 31051 set last week–but for those who find plain old lighthouses boring, what about an action-packed lighthouse covered in… ninjas?! Coming our way in just a few short months, it’s the Summer 2016 LEGO Ninjago Lighthouse Siege 70594 set!Continue Reading →
With the exception of the Frozen sets that came out the past two years, there really haven’t been many hype-worthy sets released in the LEGO Disney Princess theme. But that changed at last week’s 2016 Toy Fair, when TLG showed off what’s sure to be among the most-demanded Disney Princess sets yet: the character-loaded LEGO Belle’s Enchanted Castle 41067 from the beloved Beauty and the Beast!Continue Reading →
Continuing on with out coverage of the LEGO Star Wars Summer 2016 sets, today we’ve got a set that should be exciting for the crazed #WheresRey faction out there (FYI: She’s in basically every Star Wars toy line from every company). We spend a lot of time on Jakku during the Force Awakens, and soon we can build some of the most memorable moments from the planet with the LEGO Star Wars Encounter on Jakku 75148 set!Continue Reading →
While I think that the LEGO Friends theme has improved exponentially over the past couple years, I never go into a Toy Fair expecting Friends to be the theme that almost literally knocks my socks off. But at the New York Toy Fair 2016 earlier this month, that’s exactly what happened, largely due to the new Amusement Park sub-theme that is absolutely brilliant! So let’s begin the previews of that series with one of my favorite sets in it: the LEGO Friends Amusement Park Hot Dog Van 41129!Continue Reading →
There were many sets that caught my eye early at the 2016 New York Toy Fair last week, but one of the more surprising ones turns out to be from one of TLG’s original themes: Ninjago! Dragons have been consistently popular in the line for years, and in Summer 2016 Lloyd is finally getting his own green-hued mount as part of the LEGO Ninjago The Green NRG Dragon 70593 set!Continue Reading →
Sometimes we have to sit and wait for days after a month begins for the new LEGO Store calendar to be posted… and sometimes we do not! In what has to be some kind of record, this month TLG has posted the April 2016 LEGO Store Calendar over a month and a week before the start of April! And not only has the new calendar been posted super-early–but it also contains some news and polybag promos fans have been rabid to hear about–including the fabled LEGO Batman Classic TV Mr. Freeze minifigure promo!Continue Reading →
