LEGO Ideas Old Fishing Store (21310)

Ten months after that, it was announced that it will become an official set which was revealed only a few months ago. It has then evolved to the largest LEGO Ideas set (21310) coming in at 2,049 pieces and will retail for $149.99.

LEGO Ideas Old Fishing Store (21310) Available at LEGOLAND California

If you can’t wait for the LEGO Ideas Old Fishing Store (21310) to become available at LEGO Stores and on [email protected], you may want to head on over to LEGOLAND California if you live close to it. I’ve been told that they have it for sale early at The Big Store. It’ll officially be released on September 1 and there are some The LEGO Ninjago Movie promos but there’s also a chance that it’ll sell out very quickly so you’ll have to weigh the pros and cons of getting it at LEGOLAND.

Thanks to Charlie for the heads up.

LEGO Releases Video of Mystery LEGO Star Wars Set

LEGO Star Wars

LEGO has revealed yet another cryptic tweet, in the form of a video, of a big LEGO Star Wars that is coming October 1. This time it is a video showing a debris of bricks as a set is being assembled and eagle-eyed readers can probably figure out what it is. You can even see BB-8 flying through the debris of bricks.

This is the third teaser of a mystery set following the box and instruction booklet from previous weeks.

LEGO’s title on Facebook basically tells you in the title of what it is.

LEGO Star Wars R3-M2 (40268) Polybag Review

LEGO Star Wars R3-M2 (40268)

Way back in January, it was revealed that there was a new LEGO Star Wars polybag with R3-M2 (40268). It had a little stand with a backing that is different from your standard minifigure polybags. There was little to no detail on its availability except for it showing up at LEGOLAND California back in March and a recently showing up at Toys R Us.

I was able to purchase it for $5.99 online before the page was taken down. It was also reported that they can be found in store but they do have a street date of August 26. You may get lucky and be able to purchase it but there’s a high chance that you won’t be able to purchase until then.

Minifigure

R3-M2 is a very obscure astromech droid that has only appeared shortly in Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. The body has your typical LEGO droid pattern with the main notable differences being the large bold stripes as well as the brown and tan coloring. The back of the torso and both legs have no printing at all however according to the one in The Disney Collection 2016 Droid Factory 4-Pack, R3-M2 is supposed to have a brown stripe going down the back. The dome is trans-black with a silver ring at the base with some brown panels throughout.

Stand

R3-M2 comes with a stand that also has a backing card. The stand itself uses the black 3×4 that sits on top of a small build that uses a 1×4 brick with studs on the side for the name plate. Unfortunately, it uses a sticker but they polybag would’ve cost a little more if it had a printed name plate. There are also some bricks with holes that utilizes some Technic pins. This is used to connect a series of these polybags together with the next one being the Scarif Stormtrooper (40176) which will be available in September.

The background card is attached to the base using a couple of Technic axles. It has the LEGO Star Wars logo with the background showing a scene from the hanger on Yavin 4. There’s also the LEGO copyright which is sort of off-putting. Once R3-M2 is on the stand, you can only see a little part of it.

Results

The LEGO Star Wars R3-M2 (40268) polybag is a welcome change to the usual minifigure polybags we’ve gotten in the past. The stand is what makes it unique as it is intended to connect with other polybags for a larger display. Again, the next one in this series will be coming on Force Friday 2 at LEGO Stores and on [email protected]

R3-M2 itself is an unique minifigure and is only obtained in this particular polybag. It’s availability is still somewhat sketchy but it was found at Toys R Us. It may seem that it’ll be free with a certain purchase, most likely with a LEGO Star Wars purchase.
