It was just announced yesterday that TT Games will be releasing LEGO Jurassic World on all major video game systems. You can now pre-order the game at GameStop and it is tentatively scheduled to be released on June 30. The game will follow the storylines of Jurassic Park, The Lost World: Jurassic Park and Jurassic Park III, as well as the upcoming Jurassic World movie. We can probably expect an exclusive minifigure to be included with the game which will probably be announced as we get closer to the release date. I’m hoping it’ll be a John Hammond, Alan Grant, or an Ian Malcolm minifigure as they’re the most iconic characters out of the trilogy so far.
If you still haven’t picked up the LEGO Ninjago Nindroid MechDragon (70725), now is the perfect time to because Toys R Us has deeply discounted this 691 piece set to $39.98 which is 56% off the retail price. It’s available both in stores as well as online. I remember seeing this set keep getting discounted while I was working there going from regular price to $79.98 to $59.98 a few weeks ago. Considering it’s an older set, you still get Evil Wu, Lloyd, and Sensei Garmadon which are all exclusive minifigures to this set. Thanks to Charlie for the heads up.
There’s a new report on ToyArk which gives some details of the LEGO Marvel’s Ant-Man set that will be released this summer. Fair warning, what you read next may contain movie spoilers.
The set is called Final Battle (76039) which is priced at £19.99 and it includes the minifigures of Scott Lang/Ant-Man and Hank Pym as well as a brick-built winged ant. It also was stated that Pym wears a suit like Ant-Man. Keep in mind that the person supplying the information did not get a good look at the set so some details may be left out. Obviously, there are some details missing like if a Yellowjacket minifigure would be included since he is the main villain of the movie. Hopefully we get more details at the 2015 New York Toy Fair in a couple of weeks.
A few days ago, we reported that there will be some new LEGO Star Wars Character Constraction Ultrabuild sets coming this September/October which were seen at the 2015 Nuremberg Toy Fair. There’s a new report coming out of ToyArk that names the characters in the wave including Jedi Luke Skywalker, Darth Vader, Jango Fett, Commander Cody, Clone Wars Obi-Wan, and General Grieveous. However, this conflicts with the report by Promo Bricks because they mentioned Boba Fett would be in the wave instead of Jango. We’ll see in the near future of which Mandalorian we’ll be getting.

Jurassic Bricks has found a neat little infographic detailing the upcoming wave of LEGO Jurassic World sets that is set to be released in May/June. The image comes from an unofficial Jurassic World Facebook Page and it shows silhouettes of the dinosaurs and minifigures as well as building and vehicles for each set.
We first learned of some details of the sets when CapnRex101 did his report last week from the London Toy Fair. From this image, we now know the other names of the raptors in set 75920 as Delta and Echo. I saw on another image that one of the raptors is named Alpha so we’ll see which one it is later. Most of the other stuff we already had some details of from London. Obviously, there are some little things that are left off the image but for the most part, everything seems to match up.
Thanks to Alex for emailing this in via Eurobricks.

For those who are wondering what the new App Bricks in the upcoming LEGO Ultra Agents are about, LEGO has released a short video detailing their features. Each of the five sets in the wave will have a couple of App Bricks included which will let you create gadgets to use with the free app. The app also has more comics and games that continue the Ultra Agents storyline and the built App Brick Gadgets are used to find clues within the games. The app also has alternate builds that you can create with the sets. The app is recommended for tablet devices so if you’re just using a cell phone, it might not be as optimal. Check out the video below to see the App Bricks in action. The next wave of LEGO Ultra Agents sets will be released on March 1st.
