In addition to another wave of the LEGO The Simpsons Minifigures in 2015, a little bird had told me that we could be seeing another set next year, the Kwik-E-Mart. There wasn’t much info given but it was said that it would be a little cheaper than The Simpsons House (71006). I could venture a guess that one of the minifigures in the set would be Apu Nahasapeemapetilon since he runs the Kwik-E-Mart. Another minifig could be his brother Sanjay since he helps out from time to time.
For now, I would take this a rumor but it might be possible that we could be seeing another set considering that another wave of minifigures are being released next year.
Brickset has revealed the image for the second 2014 LEGO Creator Holiday Exclusive set, the Ice Skating (40107) scene. As you can see, it’s a small set showing one minifigure sliding down the ice while the other minifigure is playing hockey. I’m surprised that LEGO didn’t use the hockey stick from the Series 4 Hockey Player Collectible Minifigure but instead opting for a brick-built one which looks more like a broom.
The set will be given away for free during Brick Friday weekend, November 28 – December 1 with purchases of $99 or more.

Back in 2011, DK Publishing released the LEGO Star Wars Character Encyclopedia which detailed more than 300 minifigures in the Star Wars Universe and also included the exclusive Yavin Han Solo minifigure.
During Star Wars Day 2015, specifically on May 5, 2015, DK will be releasing the LEGO Star Wars Character Encyclopedia: Updated and Expanded version. This book will probably be including details of all the new LEGO Star Wars minifigures that have been released since the first book was released a few years ago. It will have 280 pages and retail for $18.99 and will most likely include an exclusive minifigure as well. There’s no word yet on who it could be, if there is one, but leave your comments below on who you want to be the minifigure.
Stay tuned for more details about LEGO Star Wars Character Encyclopedia: Updated and Expanded but in the meantime, you can pre-order the book right now on Amazon for 22% off.
Imperium der Steine has provided images of the last three sets for the LEGO Star Wars 2015 sets. We can now see the Microfighters ARC-170 Starfighter (75072) which includes a Clone Pilot. The Hailfire Droid (75085) has two Super Battle Droids and a Clone Trooper Lieutenant. Anakin’s Custom Jedi Starfighter (75087) is the Azure Angel from The Clone Wars animated series and includes Anakin Skywalker, a R4-P22 Astromech Droid, and Asajj Ventress.
To see the rest of the images for the 2015 LEGO Star Wars sets, head over to our previous post.
Earlier today was the LEGO DC Comics Super Heroes Bat-Signal event at Toys R Us stores throughout the US. Kids had the chance to build it there and take it home along the comic book that was given out at San Diego Comic Con 2014.
The Bat-Signal build itself is very simple. The signal itself sits on a turntable piece and swivels up and down using the mechanical droid legs with TECHNIC pin. The most unique element in the build is probably the Batman logo radar dish which only appears in one set, The Batcave (6860) from 2012.
Overall, it was a pretty crowded and the store employees didn’t set up until 10 minutes before the the event started. It also looked like there was very limited quantites available so if you didn’t get there early to get in line, you were probably out of luck.
If you want to build your own, below are the instructions for the Bat-Signal. You can also download the instructions in PDF format here courtesy of fellow SandLUG member Charlie.
On October 27th at 6/5c, Cartoon Network will be airing an all-new special event called LEGO DC Comics Super Heroes: Batman: Be-Leaguered. The show features pre-New 52 versions of the super heroes as well as some new minifigures that will be in the 2015 LEGO DC Comics Super Heroes sets such as Captain Cold in Gorilla Grodd Goes Bananas (76026) and Cyborg in Darkseid Invasion (76028).
Check out the synopsis as well as the UK promo and a short blooper clip below of the episode below.
Lego DC Comics: “Batman Be-Leaguered” Monday, October 27 at 6:00 p.m. (ET, PT) on Cartoon Network Batman prides himself on being a loner, a totally self-sufficient one-man-band. Just ask anyone; Batgirl, Robin, Nightwing, Alfred…anyone. So, he is understandably irritated when his nightly cleanup of Gotham City villains is interrupted by Superman, who pesters Batman to join his new superhero team, The Justice League. After Batman makes it quite clear to the Man of Steel that his invitation has been declined, Superman flies off disappointed…whereupon he is overcome with a strange energy and vanishes!
