LEGO Star Wars: The Force Awakens C-3PO (5002948) Minifigure Polybag

LEGO Star Wars: The Force Awakens C-3PO (5002948) Polybag

It was revealed a few a while back but there will be a polybag associated with Star Wars: The Force Awakens which is a C-3PO (5002948) minifigure polybag. As you can see, this version of C-3PO is a little different from the usual versions we’ve seen since has a red arm for some reason which will be revealed in the movie this December.

There are two different offers for the polybag in the US as far as I know. One is a LEGOLAND Florida special offer where purchases of $35 or more from September 7 to September 28 will net you on of these polybags. The other offer hasn’t been officially announced yet but I heard that it will be availble at Toys R Us with a certain purchase amount in November.

LEGO Ideas The Little Prince Achieves 10,000 Supporters

The Little Prince project by Colin23 is the latest project to hit 10,000 supporters on LEGO Ideas. The project is based on the book, Le Petit Prince, by Antoine de Saint-Exupery where a pilot stranded in the desert meets a yound prince fallen to Earth from a tiny astreroid.

The project just barely made it to the Second 2015 LEGO Review deadline with a few days to spare which also includes other projects like Brick-Built Adventure Time Figures, Caterham Super Seven, the Modular Library, Lothlorien, LEGO Physics, Ghostbusters: Stay Puft Marshmallow Man, Hobbit-Rivendell, and the Indominus Rex as the ones that qualify to be reviewed by LEGO to become an official set. With the Second 2015 LEGO Review stage coming to an end, we should probably be hearing about the results of the First 2015 LEGO Review very soon so stay tuned for that.

LEGO Ideas WALL•E (21303) with Power Functions

LEGO Ideas WALL•E (21303)

There are some more modifications that builders have made to the new LEGO Ideas WALL·E (21303) set. Yesterday, I spoke about a mod by Chris McVeigh on a solution to fixing the stability of the head. Another builder named PPUNG DADDY(뿡대디) has implemented Power Functions to the WALL·E set. The way they have it set up, you only need 16 bricks including the Power Functions motor to get WALL·E moving. As you can see in the video below, the battery box is inserted into the trash compactor and the receiver is attached to the back while the motors are hooked on to the tread wheels. The wires go underneath the set which is very unintrusive. I’m pretty sure many had ideas about motorizing WALL·E and this is one way of doing it. Check out the video below.

LEGO Ideas WALL·E (21303) Head Modification by Chris McVeigh

If you have one of the new LEGO Ideas WALL·E (21303) sets, you may have found that the head is too top-heavy and swings backwards when you tilt it up or down. This diminishes any poses that you may want it to have. LEGO has since delayed the release of the set and is making corrections to it. However the parts that they will be including only support the neck more and not the head itself.

LEGO photographer Chris McVeigh has posted a modification for the head to allow it to be more stable. The parts that are needed are Beam 2M W. Ball ظ 10.2 (4289258) and Brick 2X2 W. Cup For Ball (4524353) which is the typical ball and socket joint. It allows the head to fully swing around while also being able to stay in place as well. The result of this mod can be seen below at one of Chris’ pictures. Check out the full guide over on his website.
