There are rumors of a new LEGO Star Wars UCS (Ultimate Collector Series) set that will be released in 2014. Chowren Toys has gotten word that LEGO will be releasing the UCS Sandcrawler (75059) sometime next year and will go for $299.99.
The original Sandcrawler (10144) came out in 2005 but there hasn’t been any others since. mb_bricks did a project on LEGO CUUSOO and it achieved 10,000 supporters last year but was ultimately rejected during the Review Stage. The release of next year’s set may be a reason why the project got rejected.
If these rumors are true, I’m very excited to see another UCS Sandcrawler released next year. There’s no word yet on the piece count or release date but we’ll be reporting on that information as it becomes available.
Update: BrickDancer on Brickset mentions that the above-mentioned UCS Sandcrawler will be released in Spring 2014. They also mentioned that the UCS Slave I will be released in Fall 2014. Again, these are just rumors going around and should be taken lightly. We’ll update more as details become available.
Back in October, we reported that LEGO and ClicTime will be working together again to release watches aimed for the adult audience. Today, the official site is now live and you are able to order them. Unfortunately, they are selling and shipping from the UK but they are available for US delivery so there is still time to order before Christmas. The prices range from £75.00 to £145.00 which is a little bit expensive when converted to dollars but they’ll be a little cheaper when they are available for sale here. The US site still shows the watches coming soon so we’ll be keeping an eye on it when they start selling here.
The LEGO Watch System have fully swappable parts and you can customize the watches any way you want from the watch links to the bezels. Accessories for the watches will be available in 2014.
Day 10 of the LEGO Star Wars 2013 Advent Calendar (75023) is here. What possibly could we get today?
Valentine’s Day is still months away but there is a new LEGO Seasonal set showing up at LEGO brand stores as well as on eBay. There’s no official name for the set yet as it isn’t in LEGO’s database at this time but it looks to be a Valentine’s Day Teddy Bear with set number 40085. It contains 127 pieces and builds a tan bear with a red heart that connects to the chest. I was at the local LEGO store today and did not notice this set on the shelves but I’ll be checking for it next time.
We have now reached the ninth day of the LEGO Star Wars 2013 Advent Calendar (75023). Let’s see what we get today.
LEGO brand stores and Shop@Home will be giving away a FREE LEGO The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug poster with a purchase of any LEGO The Hobbit sets. This includes any of the 2014 sets that were recently released at the beginning of the month.
The poster is the same one that I got from the early Black Friday 2013 VIP shopping event a few weeks ago (see below). The poster is not made from ordinary paper materials but is made from a thicker matte material that is great for framing. Just a precaution, I recommend heading to your local LEGO store to pick it up in case the one given online may get folded. This offer is only valid until December 15th or while supplies last.
Update: One of our readers headed to their local store and unfortunately, the poster is the lightweight paper one. At least it has the same design as the other one.
As we start the second week of the LEGO Star Wars 2013 Advent Calendar (75023), we’ve gotten a good mix of minifigures and builds. What can we expect to get on the second Sunday of the calendar?
