LEGO Ranked Number 1 on 2017 Global CSR RepTrak 100

With the hype of the release of the LEGO Star Wars UCS Millennium Falcon (75192), this piece of news was overlooked. It has been announced that The LEGO Group has become the Number 1 company in regards to reputation on corporate responsibility according to RepTrak 100. This comes a couple of months after LEGO was named the second most regarded company overall.

According to the survey, The LEGO Group surpasses Microsoft and Google who was at the second and top spot, respectively, last year. Chief Financial Officer Marjorie Lao said,

We are honoured to see that our efforts to positively impact the planet resonate with people all over the world. We feel a huge sense of responsibility to inspire and develop children through play while leaving a significant positive impact on the world children will inherit. It is part of our DNA as a company, and we will continue to set the bar high for ourselves to do better.

Few More Characters Revealed for LEGO Marvel Super Heroes 2

LEGO Marvel Super Heroes 2 Captain America 2099

A few more characters have been revealed for LEGO Marvel Super Heroes 2 the past few days. The first one is Horus who we’ve seen before but now we get a clearer image of him in his outfit which is the Earth-9106 version. The other character that has been revealed for the game is Captain America 2099. This is the third character from the 2099 Marvel Universe that will be in the game joining Spider-Man 2099 and Goblin 2099. I expect there will be more 2099 characters to be in the game and hoping for Ghost Rider 2099 and Punisher 2099.

The LEGO Ninjago Movie Quake Mech (30379) Polybag Review

The LEGO Ninjago Movie Quake Mech (30379)

As I reported before, The LEGO Ninjago Movie Quake Mech (30379) polybag can now be found at Walmart and I’ve actually been able to find them. The polybag has 64 pieces and goes for $3.97 each and they can be found in a bin along with other LEGO polybags.

The build is pretty straight-forward and it actually has some articulation to it. The arms do have some movement as they have some ball socket joints. The hands are on clips and they can move as well. The most interesting part is the wheel. It’s flat at the bottom so it can easily stand up. There are a couple of clips to make it seem like they’re connected to the wheel but it’s only an illusion and it works quite well.

Overall I really like The LEGO Ninjago Movie Quake Mech (30379) polybag (Cole minifigure not included). I do like the look of it and it does recreate the mech we saw in the trailers very well. I don’t have anything to compare it to since there’s no regular scale set that has been released yet at this time. It is rumored that the Quake Mech will be released in the next wave of The LEGO Ninjago Movie sets. Until then, you can pick up this little guy at Walmart now.

The LEGO Ninjago Movie Kai Keychain Promotion at Regal Cinemas

The LEGO Ninjago Movie Regal Cinemas

If you’re planning on seeing The LEGO Ninjago Movie next week, Regal Cinemas has a promotion when you purchase advance tickets to see it. I’m not sure how many are left, but the first 1,000 Regal Crown Club members who preorder tickets will get an “exclusive” Kai keychain. It’s not really an exclusive as it can be easily purchased LEGO Brand Stores and on [email protected] but if you’re seeing the movie anyways, it’s nice to get it for free.

LEGO Star Wars UCS Millennium Falcon (75192) Release Debacle

LEGO Star Wars UCS Millennium Falcon (75192)

The day is almost over and the main event today was the release of the LEGO Star Wars UCS Millennium Falcon (75192). It was available on [email protected] shortly after 5am PST which was around the time that LEGO stated it would be released. After it was actually available, [email protected] basically couldn’t handle the load and it kept going down. Other issues with it include logging people out, servers going into maintenance, multiple orders placed, etc. After that, the set went into backordered status, and eventually temporarily out of stock. If LEGO didn’t announce an actual time for the release and just put it live at an arbitrary time, I felt that it would have eased the overload on the servers.

For those who were waiting for the general release on October 1 or Double VIP Points from October 10-25, you might be out of luck as well. Over on LEGO’s customer service page, there’s a a topic for the Millennium Falcon and there’s an interesting blurb which says,

75192 Millennium Falcon™ goes on sale from October 1st 2017, however due to the overwhelming success of our VIP Early Access, it will remain temporarily sold out.

This means that LEGO will not have stock for the general release which is actually surprising since there was plenty of hype for it way before today and they obviously knew that there was a huge demand for it but probably underestimated how much demand it really had.

LEGO also stated that they’re continuing to make more but does not have an exact date of when it will be available again. We will have another repeat of the LEGO Ideas NASA Apollo Saturn V (21309) which has been out of stock on [email protected] since after its release in June. Customers who got their orders but were on the backorder list, who knows when they will get their order.

As I stated last week, the UCS Millennium Falcon was extremely limited even at LEGO Brand Stores. I’ve been reading comments and some stores only had a handful of sets that were available for sale so if you didn’t wait in line hours before the store opened, you were out of luck.

If you weren’t able to get one today, there’s more than enough incentive to enter the LEGO Rebrick Freighter Wars contest which LEGO has four sets up for grabs. Head to the link above to see the rules. You’ll have until October 11 to enter your submission.

Were you able to get the new LEGO Star Wars UCS Millennium Falcon (75192) either from [email protected] or at the LEGO Store or were you one of the fans who was disappointed in the whole debacle? Let us know about your experience in the comments below.
