The LEGO Batman 3: Beyond Gotham continues today with another character reveal for the game, Red Hood. He is actually Jason Todd who was formerly the second Robin that was killed by the Joker during the A Death in the Family storyline and was later resurrected as Red Hood in Under the Hood story.
Earlier this month, Universal announced that The LEGO Group will be one of the licensing partners for the upcoming Jurassic World movie. As a result, LEGO has resolved their licensing conflicts with Jurassic Park/Jurassic World. Earlier this year, LEGO Ideas did the same with Doctor Who which resulted in an abundance of Doctor Who projects including two that achieved 10,000 supporters.
If you remember from last year, all the Jurassic Park related projects were removed including the one from Senteosan after only 6,495 supporters. This was because Hasbro/Kre-O signed on to produce construction sets for Jurassic World but that contract has since expired and The LEGO Group now owns the rights to produce the sets.
As of a few days ago, people are now allowed again to post Jurassic Park/World projects on LEGO Ideas but whether or not they are able to pass the review stage and become an official set remains to be seen.
The official images of the 2014 LEGO Creator Holiday Exclusive Ice Skating (40107) set are now available. We first saw an image of the box a few days ago when the set was accidentally sent to a Shop@Home customer. Now we get a clearer look at the Ice Skating scene as well as a different angle of it.
Again, it shows a frozen pond where a minifigure is playing hockey while the other is sledding down a snowy hill. The only thing that I’m disappointed with is that the hockey sticks aren’t the molded ones from the Hockey Player from the Series 4 Collectible Minifigures but instead, the sticks are brick-built.
The 2014 LEGO Creator Holiday Exclusive Ice Skating (40107) set will be available for free during Brick Friday 2014 weekend from November 28 – December 1 with purchases of $99 or more. This set will be a little bit harder to obtain since you only have four days to get it while the Toy Workshop (40106) Holiday Set has been available during the whole month of October.
To celebrate the upcoming release of LEGO Batman 3: Beyond Gotham, The Brick Show has a set of 10 FREE printable coloring pages in both PDF and in JPG formats for you to print out. The images feature a number of different LEGO DC Comics characters that you can expect to play in LEGO Batman 3 such as Batman, Green Lantern, Flash, and the rest of the Justice League members, just to name a few.
They also have coloring pages for other various LEGO themes as well. Check out some of the images below.
For those who are unaware, there is a LEGO Friends Jungle Animals Search and Find! event going on at LEGO Brand Stores until Sunday, October 26. There are various animals that are hidden through out the store and if you find them all, you can get a FREE LEGO Friends Beach Hammock Polybag (5002113). It contains 29 pieces including some cool postcards.
There are three different postcards which are fully colored featuring the girls from the LEGO Friends line. You can even mail them out to your friends or family if you like.
The beach hammock is built on a 2×8 green plate with some flower and plants. The hammock itself is a yellow cloth piece with butterflies, music notes, hearts, stars, and flowers that is wrapped around the flagpoles on each end.
The rest of the accessories are a couple of beach towels with the same design as the hammock. There are also some plates and cups and a pink book.
Longtime readers may notice that the Beach Hammock (5002113) is our very first LEGO Friends review ever on the site. Overall, it’s a nice promotional polybag that LEGO is giving away with not much work involved to obtain it. Don’t go paying for it on eBay when you can get it for free. Again, you have until this Sunday, October 26 to get one. Thanks Nia!
As part of Throwback Thursday, it has been announced that The Gray Ghost will be playable in LEGO Batman 3: Beyond Gotham with Adam West voicing the character.
The Gray Ghost was a television series played by Simon Trent (voiced by Adam West) that Bruce Wayne used to watch with his father in the Batman: The Animated Series. Later on, Trent became the Gray Ghost persona again to help Batman solve the mystery of the Mad Bomber.
There are some new details regarding the LEGO Marvel Super Heroes Rocket Raccoon polybag (5002145). Flickr user by the name of ryffranck029 went to his local Toys R Us and has managed to get a couple with his purchase. It was stated that the polybag is FREE with every purchase of $30 or more. It was also noted that the promotion would start on November 2nd and there were about 50 per store. This is for Canadian Toys R Us at the moment but hopefully the US would get the same promo as well. Stay tuned for more details if the Rocket Raccoon polybag (5002145) shows up here in the States.
Update: On a comment from Google+, the new TRU Canada flyer shows that the promo starts tomorrow. Also for us here in the US, Bryan in the comments note that Toys R Us stores will be carrying it in the near future.
