LEGO has released some new artwork for the LEGO The Hobbit Video Game which is now available on all major consoles. These images prominently shows off Smaug who plays a pivitol part in the Hobbit Trilogy. As mentioned in our report from the 2014 London Toy Fair, Smaug will have a similar size to the dragon in the LEGO Castle Dragon Mountain (70403) set.

If you have been to a LEGO Brand Store recently, you might have seen some new changes to the Pick-A-Brick wall. For people who frequent the wall, you may have noticed that the price per cup has been raised $1.00 from its previous price. The smaller cups are now $8.99 each and the larger ones are $15.99. Another change is that the wall will have certain brick elements that are the same for every Brand Store and will be rotated simutaneously throughout the year. These elements will give kids some inspiration of what they can build and the labels suggest what they could go well with such as LEGO City or Star Wars.
For people who buy in bulk of the elements at the store, the prices for the cases has also gone up from the usual $75 to $100 price tag now. Even with the price increase, the cases are still a pretty good value if you need a lot of a certain element. How do you guys feel about these changes to the PAB Wall? Let us know in the comments below.
Shout out to Genevieve who does a great job in keeping our wall filled with cool and interesting pieces.
The Community Window at my local LEGO Store in San Diego (Fashion Valley) has been changed out and the new model is The LEGO Movie themed. It was created by Tommy who is a fellow member of SandLUG. The build is actually an interactive model where he has placed 12 Emmet minifigures throughout the whole model. The store even has a cool little contest where they are giving away the remaining Benny posters they have to children who can find all 12 Emmets. If you’re in the area, stop by the store and check out Tommy’s model and see if you can find all 12 “hidden” Emmets. Technically, I found 14 mentions of him but who’s counting
Today, is the release of The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug on Blu-Ray and The LEGO The Hobbit Video Game is also available. WB Games has released the launch trailer for the game which features gameplay from the first two films of the Hobbit trilogy, An Unexpected Journey and The Desolation of Smaug. There will also be a DLC released in the future for There and Back Again but there’s no details of that just yet. If you pre-ordered the game from Gamestop, then you would’ve gotten the Good Morning Bilbo Baggins minifigure polybag.
As mentioned before, the Blu-Ray with the Legolas Greenleaf (30215) polybag is also available today and it is on sale at Target for $22.99 which is $5 off the retail price. This offer is valid only for this week.
