LEGO has released some new character posters for The LEGO Batman Movie featuring six of the main characters in the movie including Batman, Robin, Batgirl, Alfred, Joker, and Harley Quinn. Hopefully, they’ll be available at LEGO Stores and on [email protected] with purchases similar to what they did with The LEGO Movie.
The time is now here. LEGO has released a new teaser trailer for the LEGO Ninjago Hands of Time which was first talked about back at San Diego Comic Con. This new season introduces a new character who presumably is able to control time. There’s no mentioning of when the season will start but it’ll be sometime next year.
If you’ve been in a LEGO Brand Store here in the US and have checked out the Pick & Build Wall, you may have noticed some elements on the wall has a decal indicating that they they are “Fan Favorites.” LEGO has announced on the Ambassador Network that the program will be continuing through 2018. The 2017 elements have been already selected but they are reaching out to help find the best selection of elements for 2018.
What LEGO is looking for is for you to suggest your favorite LEGO element(s) which you can find on column F on the spreadsheet and your favorite color(s) on the palatte. Also, they would like to know if you have any ideas, suggestions or feedback regarding the PAB Wall as well as LEGO Brand Retail Stores in general.
Let us know in the comments below and I’ll try to tally up all the suggestions to send over. Note that this survey only affects LEGO Brand Retail North America. The deadline is January 13, 2017.
Amazon has updated the covers and descriptions on a lot of The LEGO Batman Movie books that will accompany the film and the one that interests me most is The LEGO Batman Movie: The Making of the Movie. I really enjoy books that go behind the scenes of how the movies were created and this book will deliver that.
The LEGO Batman Movie: The Making of the Movie has 200 pages and will retail for $24.99. Although it won’t be available until February 14, 2017, you can pre-order it now on Amazon and get the pre-order price guarantee which means you’ll get the lowest price between your order time and release.

Find out how your favorite heroes, villains, vehicles, and locations were created for the movie. Learn about each development stage of the movie, from the initial idea and storyboarding to recording the dialogue and special effects. Created in full collaboration with the LEGO Group and Warner Bros., The Making of The LEGO Batman Movie features exclusive insights from the filmmakers, animators, LEGO designers, and actors.
It looks like there will be a lot of The LEGO Batman Movie posters coming out in the near future. There’s no word on a release date but I’m assuming they’ll be available at retailers in early 2017. If you look closely at one of the posters featuring some of the villains, you can see Bane riding an orange 4×4. Could this be one of the rumored summer 2017 sets?
Here’s something that’s new coming for 2017. LEGO will be releasing Wave 1 of some blind bags for the Nexo Knights theme called Combo NEXO Powers (70372) for fans to collect. Each blind bag will have five mystery NEXO powers which you can scan into the MERLOK 2.0 app. This first wave has 35 to collect so I’m assuming there will be more waves coming in the future.
I’m hearing they are starting to show up now at Target stores for $3.99 which is a little bit on the high side but if you’re a Nexo Knights fan, this may be something for you.
Furthermore, Just2Good has found some and has done an opening for them if you want to check it out.
Collect and combine the NEXO Powers to defeat Monstrox!
Open the bag to reveal the five ‘mystery’ NEXO Powers, then create your own way of defeating the enemy by combining three NEXO Powers into one. Place the NEXO Powers in the included Combo NEXO Power shield, then scan into the free LEGO® NEXO KNIGHTS™ MERLOK 2.0 app and bring your creation to life in the digital game.
Features five mystery NEXO Powers, each in a different color (red, green, blue, yellow and white), plus a Combo NEXO Power shield.
Scan the shields to create your own combination to defeat Monstrox and the Stone monsters in the LEGO® NEXO KNIGHTS™: Merlok 2.0 app.
Connect Combo NEXO Power shields together with the connecting elements and build your own unique structures.
More than 35 NEXO Powers to collect!
Also includes an inspiration and collectability leaflet.
This set offers an age-appropriate build and play experience for ages 7-14.

Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment announced today that LEGO® Worlds, the digital LEGO brick building experience where players can explore, discover and create together, will commercially launch on February 21, 2017 at a suggested retail price of $24.99 for PlayStation®4 computer entertainment system, Xbox One and STEAM.
Developed by TT Games and published by Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment, LEGO Worlds is available now for pre-order in both physical and digital formats for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. A special LEGO Agents DLC pack, featuring new characters, vehicles, weapons and more from the Agents range of play materials, will be available exclusively on PlayStation 4 for a limited time.
LEGO Worlds, currently in STEAM Early Access until launch, remains available for purchase at the introductory price of $14.99. Gamers that purchase LEGO Worlds during Early Access can update to the final version with all of the new, upcoming features at no additional cost.
In LEGO Worlds, players uncover hidden treasures in environments that range from fun to the fantastical, where worlds come to life with a dizzying variety of vehicles and creatures – from cowboys riding giraffes and vampires scaring Yetis, to steamrollers, racing cars and colossal digging machines. Gamers can embark on a quest to become a Master Builder by helping other LEGO characters along the way – find a sword for a king, protect a farmer from a zombie invasion, or build a home for a caveman. Environments and creations are brought to life in any way fans can imagine, either by building brick by brick, placing down enormous prebuilt LEGO structures, or by using wondrous tools that let you paint and shape the landscape. LEGO Worlds’ online multiplayer functionality allows players to explore each other’s worlds together, create together, and engage in cooperative and competitive play experiences that players can build themselves.
