Earlier today, Ryan Reynolds posted on Twitter some LEGO sets promoting the upcoming Deadpool movie showing off some “spoilers” for the movie. He’s pretty much poking fun at the Toy Fairs like London and Nuremberg that show off upcoming products and the spoilery nature of LEGO sets based on movies. If you’re not familiar with Deadpool, he’s pretty much a super hero that tends to break the fourth wall with usually has a humorous effect.
The sets that are shown off include Deadpool Space Squid Shark Balloon Battle (6969) which has 1991 pieces and the other one is called Deadpool Hot Dogs Moose and Owl (2016) which has 8675309 pieces or Jenny’s number. Obviously both of these sets are fake but note that they use legit LEGO pieces which makes it even more hilarious.
The talk around the LEGO community the past few days is about new LEGO Holiday Christmas Train that is rumored to be coming out later this year. This was first reported by nesquik on Eurobricks and was brought to light by Just2Good. It was mentioned that it is not a re-release of the 2006 Holiday Train (10173) so we don’t have to worry about the same issue that happened last year with the re-release of the Winter Toy Shop (10248). Keep in mind that nesquik has given legit information before in the past so what they are saying could be true. Of course things can change by the time the holiday season rolls around so I wouldn’t put too much into this rumor until some concrete details are uncovered. If a new Holiday Train is actually coming out this winter, would you guys be picking it up?
I’ve finally had some free time for some building and today’s review is on the LEGO Marvel Super Heroes Avenjet Space Mission (76049). This is one of the newer Super Heroes sets that has been released so far for 2016 and is based on the Avengers Assemble animated series. The set contains 523 pieces and retails for $59.99. The contents of the box include four numbered bags, a bagged Thanos, a sticker sheet, a comic, and the instructions.
Continuing with the LEGO Star Wars news for today, this post pertains to the upcoming Rogue One sets that will be coming out later this year. The Rogue One subtheme was announced at the Nuremberg Toy Fair last week and there’s been much talk about it the past week or so, mainly if the Slave I shown in the image would be one of the sets along with Boba Fett.
There are now some new box outline images from a retailer catalog which I won’t be posting but they do give some detail in to the Rogue One sets. There are five sets based on the movie with set numbers:
There are also three Buildable Figures based on the Rogue One movie with set numbers:
Note that the background image does show a TIE Fighter flying in the back. Whether or not it will be a set or not remains to be seen. Obviously, there are no info yet on the prices, piece count, etc. but we should be getting more details later this summer. It’s been reported earlier that the sets will be released this October.
In the wee hours of the morning, I reported that there will be a new LEGO Star Wars: The Force Awakens video game that will be releasing on June 28. I now have the official press release for the game and more images as well as the trailer for it.
There will be two versions of the game, the regular one and the Deluxe Edition which includes the Season Pass as well as the 30605 Finn (FN-2187) minifigure polybag. The Deluxe version is only available for Playstation 4 and Xbox One. The PS4 Deluxe Edition has an exclusive DLC for the Phantom Limb Level Pack as well as a Droid Character Pack.
Amazon and GameStop has both versions of the game available for pre-order, depending on which retailer you desire, with Amazon having 20% off on the pre-orders. If you’re part of the Best Buy Gamer’s Club, you can get 20% off the game as well.

Back in October, there was an image of a LEGO Star Wars Finn (30605) polybag that showed up online. Many people noticed that there was a code on the bottom left corner of the packaging which may suggest that it’ll be included with a video game as they usually are.
It looks like Twitter user Shinobi602 has found an Amazon Italy listing of a LEGO Star Wars: Episode 7 video game for the PlayStation 4. It also lists the release date is May 31, 2016 which could just be a placeholder and the listing mentions that some of the playable characters include Rey, Finn, Poe, BB-8, Kylo Ren, and Han Solo.
Shinobi602 also mention there will be a Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment announcement tomorrow for the game as well so we’ll see if WB sends over a press release in the morning.
