Given the way that the LEGO Star Wars The Force Awakens set images were closely guarded under lock and key until it was nearly Force Friday last year, I really expected that TLG would keep a tight lid on their LEGO Rogue One sets until this year’s Force Friday (September 30th, 2016) as well. But it looks like the starfighters are out of the bag, as Amazon Italy has posted the official images of all of this year’s sets for brick fans the world over to see! I’ll be discussing the Rogue One Buildable Figures sets on my Star Wars blog, but let’s take a first look at the Rogue One vehicles sets…Continue Reading →
LEGO has been posting teasers all week long for LEGO Dimensions Series 2, and while TLG isn’t ready to announce their upcoming Series 2 sets quite yet, the Mexican branch of Amazon thought otherwise and has posted hi-red images of several new expansion packs–LEGO Adventure Time, Mr. T and the A-Team, LEGO Mission Impossible, a Harry Potter Team Pack and more are now up for order!Continue Reading →

I was driving down the road to my doctor’s appointment when I almost swerved off the street and into a tree when some photos in an incoming message popped up on my phone screen and caught my eye. We’ve been waiting for months now to get out first glimpse at the highly-rumored Creator Expert LEGO Big Ben 10253 set, and today our first photos of the box for the set have finally appeared!Continue Reading →
It’s pretty unusual for LEGO to release a movie-based Marvel set months after the rest of the sets in the series, so it was a bit of a head-scratcher when rumors began to surface regarding a fourth Civil War set in addition to the ones released a couple months back. I should have realized immediately why this set was delayed a bit, but it’s pretty clear now: the first-ever MCU Spider-Man minifigure is the headliner in the exclusive LEGO Marvel Tanker Truck Takedown 76067 Civil War set!Continue Reading →
One of the downsides to the cornucopia of new sets that LEGO shows off at the New York Toy Fair in February is that news is a little, well… slow… in the months following Toy Fair. Thankfully, TLG doesn’t show us absolutely everything at Toy Fair, so we still have some surprises to look forward to. And so, though rumors have been circulating since winter, today we finally got our first look at this year’s last Batman set: the 76056 LEGO Batman Rescue from Ra’s Al Ghul set!Continue Reading →

It was a little bit over a month ago that we learned from the May 2016 LEGO Store Calendar that a brand-new LEGO Marvel Captain America’s Motorcycle polybag promo was scheduled for the end of May!
But if you don’t feel like waiting until the end of the month to snag this set for free, you don’t have to: the 30447 Captain America’s Motorcycle set from Civil War is now starting to turn up for sale in local Toys R Us stores!Continue Reading →
April turned out to be a pretty boring month, with very little “news” that wasn’t just official photos of sets I took better photos of back at New York Toy Fair 2016.
But the end of April is nigh, and now we can look ahead to the June 2016 LEGO Store Calendar–which features one of the best promo sets of the year, a surprise VIP Early Access set, a Seaplane Mini Monthly Model Build and more!Continue Reading →
