It looks like we have our first look at the upcoming LEGO Marvel Super Heroes Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 sets which which comes from the back of an unknown instruction manual. The image shows off three of the sets in the wave. From what I can see, the minifigures that are in the sets include:
Ayesha’s Revenge (76079) – Rocket, Taserface, Mantis
Ravager Attack (76080) – Ayesha, Star Lord, Baby Groot, Yondu?, and an unknown character.
76081 – Star Lord, Gamora, Nebula, Baby Groot, Drax
As you can see, the Milano makes another appearance and has slight updates from the previous 76021 version. We also get Baby Groot as a minifigure which uses the new baby mold. The sets also introduce Mantis as well as Ayesha which was recently revealed to be one of the new villains in the movie.
WB Games has released the official trailer for the upcoming LEGO City: Undercover. The trailer reintroduces Chase McCain along with an amazing soundtrack that’s very Grand Theft Auto like. The game was first released exclusively on the Nintendo Wii U but this remastered version will be on the PlayStation 4, XBox One, Nintendo Switch, and Steam.
If you haven’t played LEGO City: Undercover before, it’s an open-world adventure that lets you control Chase McCain to hunt down criminals in a LEGO version of GTA. There are rumors that this version is more than just a straight port over and will have updates to it from the previous one. There’s no release date mentioned but it is stated that it will be released in the spring.
Join the Chase! This first official trailer for LEGO CITY Undercover introduces Chase McCain, a police officer who goes undercover and dons multiple disguises to hunt down the notorious – and recently escaped – criminal, Rex Fury, to put an end to his city-wide crime wave.
This open-world LEGO adventure allows fans and newcomers to explore the sprawling metropolis that is LEGO® CITY , with more than 20 unique districts to investigate, filled with car thieves to bust, vehicles to navigate, mischievous aliens to capture, hilarious movie references to discover, lost pigs to rescue and of course, hundreds of collectibles. Bringing together witty, original storytelling with signature LEGO humor, this open-world LEGO adventure creates a fun-filled experience for players of all ages.
Next up on my reviews of The LEGO Batman Movie sets, I’ll be taking a look at the Killer Croc Tail-Gator (70907). The set has a modest 460 pieces and will retails for a not-so-modest $69.99. The contents of the box include four numbered bags, two instruction booklets, and a sticker sheet.
Last year, I reported that Disguise would be releasing official costumes for The LEGO Batman Movie and it looks like they are now available over on Amazon. Currently, I can only find the Batman costume but there will also be Batgirl as well.
Like with the LEGO Ninjago costume I reviewed last year, Batman will come in three sizes in both Deluxe and Prestige versions. The costume has six pieces to it including the tunic with detachable cape, pants, mask, and a pair of hands. The Prestige version will have the minifigure leg design.
Who says costumes are only for Halloween. With The LEGO Batman MOvie hitting theaters next month, why not have your own little Batman with you while watching the movie.
If you love X-Men, then you should check out what Henry Pinto has created the past few months. Many hours were put in to create this minifigure-scale LEGO Sentinel and is the most impressive one I’ve seen. I’ve been following Henry’s progress of creating the mutant-hunting robot on social media and I’ve looked forward to seeing the finished product. If only LEGO would release something like this as an official product but we can only dream. Check out the progress of the Sentinel in the link above.
Amazon currently has The LEGO Batman Movie: Chaos in Gotham City Activity Book on sale for $6.59 which is 27% off the regular price of $9.99. The book also includes the exclusive Tartan Batman minifigure variant which fans will want to collect as well. The book may not appeal to adults as they are geared towards kids as with other activity books but the minifigure alone is worth the price especially when it is on sale. The LEGO Batman Movie: Chaos in Gotham City will be released on January 31.
Following up on my review of The LEGO Batman Movie The Joker Battle Training (30523) polybag, I have another one that was sent in by LEGO for review which is the Batman in the Phantom Zone (30522). This 59 piece polybag is now available at Target stores in the Valentine’s section for $3.99.
The only part of the build is the what appears to be the Phantom Zone. If you’re not familiar with the Phantom Zone, it’s a realm in the DC Superman Universe where it is used for a means of imprisonment. The LEGO Batman Movie: The Essential Guide has some little spoilers of why the Phantom Zone is in the movie which I won’t post here.
The design of it is very complex looking especially for a polybag and uses two Travis bricks as part of the base of the build. There are a lot of dark red parts that are used such as some 1×3 plates, 1×1 clips, as well as some headlight bricks which are pretty rare so far. There’s also some trans-blue dishes on the outer edges.
Around the outer sections are covered with lightsaber blades, harpoons, and claws. I don’t know about you but these seem like defense mechanisms of the Phantom Zone. Finally, there is a clear dish and antenna to show that it floats in the air.
Overall, The LEGO Batman Movie Batman in the Phantom Zone (30522) polybag is a neat little set. The Batman minifigure isn’t as interesting because it’s the same one is in a couple of sets plus he’s also in a plethora of other ones. The Phantom Zone is very cool especially since it doesn’t appear in any sets but it does connect to the Arkham Asylum (70912) where it has the Phantom Zone Projector. If you’re not into the polybag, it does make a good parts pack. Again, the polybag is now available at Target in Valentine section of the store as well as near the register lanes.
