Can you believe there are only four days left in the LEGO Star Wars 2014 Advent Calendar (75056)?
There are two different reports on Brickset and on Eurobricks that a LEGO Marvel Super Heroes Winter Soldier minifigure will be available sometime in 2015. There’s no mentioning on how the minifigure will be distributed, whether it be a stand-alone polybag, a gift with purchase, or a Comic Con exclusive. Tragic Banjo on Eurobricks, who has been correct on other rumors before, notes that it could be of the Marvel Cinematic Universe version. Either way, the word is now that we will most likely be seeing Bucky Barnes next year.
LEGO is having another Double VIP Points event today at LEGO Brand Stores and on Shop@Home. This is probably your last chance to earn Double Points this year, just in time for Christmas. To get holiday delivery, you will have to use Express shipping or else your items will not arrive on time. The event ends at 11:59pm EST. Please use our links provided so show your support for the site.
We’re down to the last weekend for the LEGO Star Wars 2014 Advent Calendar (75056) which means we should be getting some cool stuff now.
Jurassic Bricks (Hoth Bricks subsidy) has found the first official image of the LEGO Jurassic World sets from a LEGO catalog. From what the image shows, there are four dinosaurs represented: Tyrannosaurus Rex, Pteranodon and two different colored Velociraptors. We can also see the Owen (Chris Pratt) and Dr. Henry Wu (B.D. Wong) minifigures as well as two unidentified characters. Also some keen-eyed readers noticed that Wu is holding a piece of amber which is a moonstone piece from the LEGO Monster Fighter line.
As for the setting, this could be one of the six new sets that will be released in the line. The image also notes the sets will be released in June when the movie premieres in the US on June 12th. Also note that the dinosaurs depicted are the same ones that were leaked on TaoBao a few months ago.
This is a little different post than the normal news because it’s been kind of slow the past couple of days. I received an email from a friend and local fan of the site named Keith, who I’ve had the pleasure of meeting a few times at the local LEGO Store, and in the email was an image of a wicked cool build that he has created.
Each year Keith creates custom LEGO builds for his son and for this year he has created a Green Lantern Mech. Obviously, this takes a lot of time but to see your son being overjoyed for something that is hard to achieve is priceless. Click on the image to see a larger view of it.
So to Keith who made this Green Lantern Mech, hats off to you sir for being an awesome dad. Hope to see you again at the LEGO Store.
Last week, we reported that the LEGO Disney Princess Elsa’s Sparkling Ice Castle (41062) have started to show up at various Target store locations. For those who are still looking for it for Christmas shopping, we have a little tool you can use to check if a certain Target store has them in stock or not. It’s called Brickseek and if you haven’t bookmarked it yet, you should.
Brickseek is a very simple tool and all you need to do is to enter your zip code and the DCPI number for a particular set. For example, Elsa’s Sparkling Ice Castle’s DCPI number is 086-14-2474 so you can enter that and your location to see if there are any sets available nearby. This may mean the set could be on the shelves or in the warehouse. If you can’t find it on the shelves, ask an associate and they can probably bring it out from the back. Keep in mind that the tool uses Target’s Inventory System which can sometimes be incorrect. It also provides you with the store address and phone number so you can call and double check before you head out.
Brickseek also shows if a certain set has gone through price changes or stock changes for various retailers like Amazon, Shop@Home, Toys R Us, Walmart and Target. Use it wisely to your advantage. Finally, sometimes the site is a little slow so you may have to refresh it a couple of times for it to work but when it does, it’s a pretty cool tool to use.
