Amazon has some really good sales on various LEGO sets. I’ve listed some of the more notable ones below.
If you been wanting to expand your carbon chamber scene from Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back, Amazon has the LEGO Star Wars Carbon-Freezing Chamber (75137) on sale for $14 which is 44% off the normal price of $24.99. This is the lowest price the set has been at and is a great way to get Boba Fett as well as the new Ugnaught minifigures.
The TIE Striker (75154) is also at its lowest price at $48.99 which is 30% off the normal price. This set is a great way to grow your fleet of TIE Strikers which includes minifigures of the TIE Pilot, Imperial ground crew, Imperial Shoretrooper, and Rebel Trooper.
The LEGO City Cargo Train (60052) is back on sale again for $139.99 which is $60 off the regular price. It’s coming up on the third year of its shelf life so there’s a chance that it could be retiring soon.
The LEGO Marvel Super Heroes Spider-Man: Web Warriors Ultimate Bridge (76057) is also on sale and a good time to pick it up to expand the bridge into a complete one.
LEGO Classic Medium Creative Brick Box (10696) is 29% off but it has a $0.05/piece ratio with lots of nice pieces in various colors.

If you missed out on the LEGO Disney Lumiere building event at Toys R Us last year, they are bringing it back this week. On Saturday, March 25 from 1-3pm local time, you can celebrate the new Disney Beauty and the Beast movie with a LEGO Disney Lumiere build which is the same exact build from last year. The event is intended for ages 6 and up and quantities are limited.
The LEGO Ninjago Movie trailer has been released over a month ago and so far there been little information about the sets that will accompany the movie. We do know that there will be quite a few sets featuring the mechs, which can be seen in the trailer, that were shown off at the 2017 New York Toy Fair but no photography was allowed.
One of my sources has told me about another set that will be coming out this summer as well which is a D2C Ninjago City set. There was no other info that was given except that it would be a pretty large set and could possibly be some sort of modular building.
As always, keep this as a rumor since there hasn’t been any other information on this set but I do feel confident about it.

LEGO set 6639 Raven Racer is a small set from the 1995 Race subtheme of Town. I remember this set as the first set I received that included the tool wheel sprue. In 1995, only 5 sets included the tool wheel, all in Dark Gray. It wasn’t until 1999 in the first Star Wars X-wing set that we received the tools in a new color, black. Raven Racer includes 1 minifigure, a dragster, and a tool rack. The tool wheel was also useful in giving you 6 clips in a set to hold the tools, a higher number of the same piece, especially in a set this small.

Here’s an very interesting rumor involving the future of LEGO Dimensions and it’s not looking too good for the popular toys-to-life game. Bricks to Life has put out a report that LEGO Dimensions may be coming to an end sooner than we thought. We already knew that TT Games had promised three years of content but that looks like that may be cut short. I’ve seen various reports on it but I’ve held off until there were more information about it.
Bricks to Life was given this information from their sources and it also corresponds to what Just2Good stated last month which he took a lot of flak for. There’s also in-game content that may also suggest the same thing where some content were removed in the latest update. Furthermore, it was also stated that the company held a meeting to review their upcoming games and LEGO Dimensions went from top of the list to the bottom. Coupled that with the very deep discounts of the expansion packs recently, everything seems to be correlate that the game will be coming to an end.
Of course there’s still more LEGO Dimensions expansion packs that will be coming out in the near future including The Goonies Level Pack (71267), Hermione Fun Pack (71348), and the LEGO City Fun Pack (71266) which are all coming out in May. There’s also some unannounced expansion packs from various themes including The Powerpuff Girls, Beetlejuice, and Teen Titan’s Go! which we haven’t officially seen yet. Then there’s that Lord Vortech rumor as well.
There are a lot of hardcore fans of the the game and some may be disappointed to read about it. Head on over to Bricks to Life to see their in-depth analysis on the fate of LEGO Dimensions in the link above. If you can’t get to it because of site issues, check out the cached version of it.
