A short while ago, Blizzard revealed the first official LEGO Overwatch set with the Omnic Bastion (75987). It is a Blizzard exclusive that will also be available at Blizzcon 2018 next month but you can now purchase it online at the Blizzard Gear Store. The set has 182 pieces and retails for $25 because it is exclusive to their store and probably won’t be available along with the upcoming full LEGO Overwatch launch.
A few months ago at San Diego Comic Con, we got our first look at one of the new late 2018 LEGO Marvel Super Heroes sets with the Spider Mech vs. Venom (76115) but now have official images of the whole wave including some LEGO Juniors sets as well. Over on Brickshop.nl, they have listed five new sets including the one mentioned before and there are some awesome new minifigures to collect. Check them out below.

Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald will be in theaters in a few short weeks and recently LEGO has released a few sets based on the first two Fantastic Beasts movies. Amazon currently has those two sets on sale at which are the lowest they’ve been on the site. Newt’s Case of Magical Creatures (75952) is 20% off and is holding at $40 which is $10 off the regular price. This is a really fun build and I do recommend it based on my review.
For you LEGO Ninjago fans, there are some new sales going on over at Amazon that you may be interested in. There’s a couple of the new summer 2018 wave sets that are already discounted and it’s the lowest they’ve been on Amazon. The first one is the Firstbourne (70653) that is going $56 which is 20% off the regular price. At almost 900 pieces and six minifigures, this is a great deal on the set.
The other set is the Oni Titan (70658) which is now $40.47, a 19% discount. This set has four minifigures including the popular Harumi (according to my Twitter followers).
Earlier today, LEGO announced the new LEGO Ideas Pop-Up Book (21315) and this set was the brainchild of Jason Allemann and Grant Davis. Containing 859 pieces while retailing for $69.99, the book features two well-known short stories with the Little Red Riding Hood, and Jack and the Beanstalk.
The November 2018 LEGO Store Calendar talked about some of the upcoming Black Friday promotions which includes doorbuster deals and exclusive offers but it didn’t mention or show anything for the promotion. It looks like we may have found out what one of the offers could be via the Chinese LEGO Store flyer. At the bottom of the flyer, it shows a limited edition Christmas Gift Box (40292) gift-with-purchase set from November 22-30. Here in the States, our promotions start on November 23 so it’s possible that we could also get this promotion set as well.
If you look closely at the set, you can see that it is able to open up to show a scene inside showing off what appears to be a living room on Christmas day complete with a Christmas tree and toys. It is worth mentioning that the footnote shows that the set is limited to 4,500 copies. I’m not sure if that amount is in that particular region or worldwide.
This set is not the only Christmas set this year has it has already been revealed there is also the Christmas Carousel (40293) as well. There’s no word at this time when that particular promotion will begin. As always, I’ll report any new information that comes out for these two sets.
The LEGO Movie 2: The Second Part comes out in a few short months and little details of the movie have been slowly releasing. Back in San Diego Comic Con, the Warner Bros. panel talked about a new character for the movie named Rex Dangervest who is also voiced by Chris Pratt. We now have a look at the character which comes from an upcoming book for the movie on Amazon UK.
As you can see from the image above, Rex wears a blue outfit and he has a disheveled look. As stated from the SDCC panel, Rex is a space traveling archeologist, cowboy, and raptor trainer. This is a play on some of the characters that Chris Pratt has played in other movies including Guardians of the Galaxy, The Magnificent Seven, and Jurassic World.
