May the 4th 2016 is a bit weird in that it falls on a Wednesday–precisely in the middle of the week, and in an unenviable position for stores looking to merchandise and capitalize on the event. As a result, the LEGO Store May the 4th sale this year began on the last day of April (April the Fourth Be With You?), and Toys R Us stores in the United States and Canada are having their event during separate weeks. And while Canada had this fun, free LEGO Mini Millennium Falcon model build yesterday, U.S. stores will be getting it next weekend…Continue Reading →

Believe it or not, there are still Summer 2016 LEGO sets I took photos of at the NY Toy Fair 2016 and still haven’t talked about. Doubly shocking is a few of those sets are from the Star Wars theme! That ends now, as tonight I’m discussing the Eclipse Fighter on my Star Wars blog, and over here the main ship from this year’s Freemaker Adventures cartoon: the LEGO Star Wars Star Scavenger 75147!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 →
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 →
I’m not gonna lie: I thought Star Wars Rebels Season 1 was sorta “Ehn”. But when I saw Captain Rex and more Clone Wars characters in the Season 2 trailer, my heart definitely thawed. And although Rebels Season 2 hasn’t met my expectations, that trailer is still the high point of Rebels for me.
So when I saw that the Summer 2016 LEGO Star Wars Captain Rex’s AT-TE 75157 set commemorating the Clones’ return at Toy Fair 2016 last week? Yeah–count me in!Continue Reading →
Of all the LEGO Star Wars 2016 sets officially revealed at New York Toy Fair 2016, the one set that I thought took the prize for coolest isn’t a movie-based set at all.
In fact, it doesn’t even contain one vehicle–it contains two! It’s the Rebels-era LEGO Star Wars Darth Vader’s TIE Advanced vs. A-Wing Starfighter 75150 set!Continue Reading →
Earlier this week I posted Toy Fair 2016 photos and talked about “the classic”, “the original”, the beloved LEGO City 2016 Advent Calendar. But while City was the first theme to get a calendar, it was long ago unseated as the most popular of the different Advent Calendars that TLG produces each year. And so, without further ado, let’s take a look at the headliner of this year’s crop of calendars: the LEGO Star Wars 2016 Advent Calendar 75146!Continue Reading →
