There are now official images of the Winter 2017 LEGO Speed Champions sets. We had a first look at one of the sets last month but now we have a look at five sets of the wave. There’s still another set that may be a store exclusive which is the Mercedes Pit Stop (75880).
Mercedes AMG GT3 (75877)
Bugatti Chiron (75878)
Scuderia Ferrari SF16-H (75879)
Ford GT 2016 & Ford 1966 GT40 (75881)
Ferrari FXX K & Development Center (75882)
Mercedes AMG PETRONAS Formula One Team (75883)
It seems that we keep finding new items for The LEGO Batman Movie. Online shop Brickshop.nl has posted another new polybag and this time it’s the Kiss Kiss Tuxedo Batman (5004928) keychain. Over on their site, it’s a promotional polybag for them but there’s no word on how other parts of the world can get it.
Well it looks like we’ll have another polybag to forward to for The LEGO Batman Movie. A reader has posted an image on our Facebook Page showing off what appears to be an accessory pack similar to the one we got for The LEGO Movie (5002041). The 41 piece polybag includes a Batman minifigure along with the Batsignal as well as a sticker sheet as well as some items I can’t tell what they are.
I’m assuming this polybag will be available in February as a gift with purchase as the January 2016 LEGO Store Calendar doesn’t show anything on there for it. We’ll see when the February calendar is available in a few day.
Thanks to Alan for the heads up.
We’re winding down 2016 and it’s time to continue with my “Top 10” lists and this time it’s for the most viewed LEGO posts of the year. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, I love to look at statistics. In regards to what the top posts were this year, I was actually a little surprised to see what showed up on my analytics.
As usual, you guys like reading up about some of the LEGO sets that we’ll be getting in the future. This list came out in August so some of the sets have already hit store shelves and online.
Not surprisingly, the toy fair season has everyone hyped for it since we get our first look at the spring and summer sets.
This post really took my by surprise as to how high it is on this list. This project was eventually announced that it will become an official LEGO Ideas set that will be coming out in Fall 2017.
Another post that came out in the second half of the year which many people read up on a lot. Most were excited for the Snowglobe and Nutcracker Ornament GWPs.
The Disney Collectible Minifigures a huge surprise when they were first announced but before that, a list of the characters that would be included was revealed earlier.
This was the first toy fair of the year and there were descriptions of the LEGO sets that we would eventually be getting during the spring and summer.
The distribution of minifigures per full box was revealed ahead of the official release.
Another store calendar post made the list this year and main thing people were looking forward to on there was the Holiday Countdown Calendar (40222).
This was a very early post in the year where there were already rumors swirling of the Winter Holiday Train (10254).
It seems that you guys really like the Disney Collectible Minifigures and hopefully my feel guide helped you find the ones that you wanted.
I’ve just picked up the Barnes & Noble exclusive edition of The LEGO Batman Movie: The Essential Guide and in it, there are images of some rumored summer 2017 sets that I’ve previously reported on.
The first is the Batwing that is said to be released. The book calls this version of the Batwing the “Black Thunder.” Further along in the book in the villains section, we get a look at some of the other sets that were rumored to come out in the summer. The first is Two-Face with his wrecking machine. Next to him is Harley Quinn with her vehicle with a cannon that was going to be a part of the Black Thunder Batwing set. On the next page, we get a look at the Scarecrow Scarecopter. Finally, there’s a look at the Bane bigfig along with his six-wheel vehicle.
You can now purchase The LEGO Batman Movie: The Essential Guide over on Amazon but the Barnes & Noble version also includes a poster with it. I’ll review the book in the next few days.
The perfect companion to LEGO Batman’s first solo movie, The LEGO® Batman™ Movie: The Essential Guide showcases the full range of exciting LEGO Batman sets and minifigures that will be released to tie in with the film’s release. Heroes, villains, vehicles, and locations are all explored in classic DK style, with lively and informative nonfiction text to annotate and expand upon lavish reference images of LEGO Batman sets and scenes from the movie.
For the past week, LEGO has been teasing on Facebook about a new play experience that boosts creativity. The first video just shows a flashing vertical light bar while a new video today shows a flashing RGB light with some more non-flashing lights. They also announced that whatever this is will be revealed next Wednesday, January 4. My guess is that it could be a new LEGO Mindstorms since the EV3 (31313) was released back in 2013 and it’s probably due time for a new version. What are you guys’ guesses on what this new thing is? Let us know in the comments below.
