LEGO Releases Image of Mystery Instruction Booklet

LEGO Teaser #2

A short while ago, LEGO released another teaser which could be for the supposed LEGO Star Wars UCS Millennium Falcon (75192). For this one, they’ve shown off a mystery instruction booklet and says that this one is 2.56 times bigger than one for the the 196 page LEGO Creator Carousel (10257). If you’re counting pages, this very large booklet will have about 502 pages.

This continues the trend of releasing a teaser every Tuesday up until the official reveal of this mystery set. Stay tuned next week for another reveal if this pattern keeps up.

LEGO Star Wars: The Last Jedi D23 Character Posters

LEGO Star Wars: The Last Jedi General Leia

At D23 2017, Disney released some new character posters for Star Wars: The Last Jedi and these posters are now recreated in LEGO form. Shared by LEGO on their social media accounts, the posters feature the main characters in the movie including General Leia, Kylo Ren, Poe Dameron, Rey, Luke Skywalker, and Finn in the crimson red color scheme. There’s no word if these posters will be available as physical ones given out as a GWP but it’ll be cool if they were. I would totally add them to my wall.

The LEGO Ninjago Movie Alphabet Translator

The LEGO Ninjago Movie Alphabet

If you’ve been collecting The LEGO Ninjago Movie sets, you’d probably have noticed some strange symbols throughout the sets. This is actually the language of Ninjago and LEGO has been doing some things for fans to help decipher the symbols.

If you’re near a LEGO Brand Store, some of them have been giving out a promotional handout which includes a translator for each of the letters of the alphabet. If you’re not near a store, LEGO has also provided an online version of it (http://www.ninjagolanguagetranslator.com/). Here you have a QWERTY keyboard layout for the symbols but there is also a row for the numbers as well which the physical copy does not have.

I do appreciate LEGO releasing a Ninjago language translator especially for younger fans and now everyone can decode what everything says in the sets.

Blocks Magazine LEGO Star Wars Building Contest

Did you miss out on the fairly limited LEGO Star Wars Escape the Slug (6176782) exclusive set from last year? Blocks is giving you a chance to win a set as well as being featured in the magazine. All you have to do is to enter their building contest but this is not any ordinary contest. You have to recreate a scene from Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope, more specifically the cantina scene where Han shoots Greedo.

Blocks has some strict guidelines which you can see in the press release below. If you’re building minifigure scale, you have to own both the Han Solo and Greedo minifigures. The deadline for submissions is midnight on September 1, 2017 (GMT).

Blocks magazine offers amazing prizes in Star Wars at 40 build contest

It will probably not have escaped your attention that a little movie called Star Wars, released in 1977, celebrates its 40th anniversary in 2017. Blocks will be celebrating with a very special Star Wars issue later this year, and we want our readers to get involved.

We are holding a unique competition, with not one, but two amazing prizes on offer. The overall winning entry will have the one-of-a-kind opportunity to be part of Blocks’ Star Wars at 40 special feature – your entry could be included in a huge article that the team are putting together. Additionally, the winner and two runners-up will each receive the prize of a super rare, limited edition LEGO Star Wars set – Escape the Space Slug. It was only available as part of a select LEGO Store shopping opportunity last year.

To be in with a chance of being immortalised in the pages of Blocks and picking up a copy of an impossible-to-find LEGO Star Wars set, entrants need to build a specific scene from Star Wars: A New Hope, using LEGO. It can be built at any scale and be open to interpretation, but it also needs to represent Blocks’ chosen scene from the original film in a recognisable way – this is all about recreating the selected scene from the movie, using LEGO as your medium. The judging panel will be looking at how it represents the scene, not just the best MOC, so presentation and concept will be important alongside technical ability.

The scene from Star Wars: A New Hope that Blocks wants you to recreate in LEGO is ‘Han shot first’. It’s the moment when Han Solo encounters Greedo in the cantina at Mos Eisley, and events take a particular turn…

To enter, post an image of your build to Facebook (blocksmag), on Twitter @blocksmagazine or via e-mail it to [email protected] The deadline is midnight on September 1, 2017 (GMT). Your image must be at a resolution of 300dpi and fit the landscape dimensions of 330mm wide x 330mm tall.

Full terms and conditions can be found at www.blocksmag.com. Keep your navicomputer targeting Blocks’ social media channels for build tips from our experts.

Give More Articulation to The LEGO Ninjago Movie Fire Mech (70615)

kaifiremechmod06

A few days ago, I did a review on the new The LEGO Ninjago Movie Fire Mech (70615) and one of the major complaints I had with it was there was no knee joints. Chubbybots over on Flickr saw more changes that they could make to the build to make it more articulated including changes to the knees, ankles, arms, and waist. They’ve even posted a video to show you how you can make changes to your Fire Mech as well.
