LEGO Star Wars Visual Dictionary – New Edition Coming in 2019

LEGO Star Wars Visual Dictionary New Edition

Every year we get new LEGO Star Wars sets and for physical media, they have to release new material to keep the content updated. Amazon has listed a new LEGO Star Wars Visual Dictionary – New Edition that is tentatively slated to come out April 1, 2019. We’ve already gotten some visual dictionaries before for LEGO Star Wars such as the original one from 2009 and the Updated and Expanded version from 2014. It has been four years since the last book and will be almost five when the New Edition comes out next year. The book will cover a majority of the sets and minifigures that have been released the past few years. Like with many other LEGO DK books, there will be an exclusive minifigure that will be included but we probably won’t know who it is until sometime next year.

Currently, you can’t pre-order the LEGO Star Wars Visual Dictionary – New Edition just yet but I’ll let you know when you are able to.

Explore the LEGO® Star Wars™ galaxy with this visual guide to the minifigures, vehicles, and sets from the entire Star Wars saga. Discover every detail of the Millennium Falcon, look around the Death Star, examine Poe Dameron’s X-wing starfighter, and find out about all your favourite LEGO Star Wars minifigures – from Rey to Darth Vader. Learn how the awesome sets are created in the Beyond the Brick chapter, which features concept art and an interview with the LEGO Star Wars creative team. The LEGO Star Wars Visual Dictionary – New Edition has been fully updated and expanded to cover the latest LEGO Star Wars sets, and to tell you everything there is to know about LEGO Star Wars. The book also comes with an exciting exclusive LEGO Star Wars minifigure!

LEGO DC Super Heroes Visual Dictionary Exclusive Yellow Lantern Batman Minifigure

LEGO DC Super Heroes Visual Dictionary

Way back in February, we got our first look at the upcoming LEGO DC Super Heroes Visual Dictionary that will be released in September. Of course, a majority of the DK books will include an exclusive minifigure and we now know who that character is thanks to Amazon France.

As you can see in the image above, the exclusive minifigure will be Yellow Lantern Batman of the Sinestro Corps from Forever Evil #4. Even though it was short-lived, LEGO decided it was obscure enough to produce a minifigure of the Yellow Lantern Batman.

You can now pre-order the LEGO DC Super Heroes Visual Dictionary with a price of $21.99 but you do have the Amazon Pre-Order Price Guarantee so if goes cheaper between now and the release, you’ll pay the lowest price.

Thanks to Justin for the heads up!

LEGO Harry Potter Activity Book Minifigure Revealed

LEGO Harry Potter Activity Book

Last month, I talked about an upcoming LEGO Harry Potter Activity Book that was available for pre-order on Amazon which included a LEGO minifigure. We didn’t know what the minifigure was because it only had a placeholder for the image but Amazon has updated the image with the cover of the book and the minifigure that will be included is none other than Harry Potter himself. This version of him has the short legs and it looks like it will only be available with the Hogwarts Great Hall (75954) set so this activity book will be the cheapest way to get the school uniform version of the character.

Thanks to Brandon for the heads up!

LEGO Star Wars: Choose Your Path Book Review

LEGO Star Wars: Choose Your Path

One of the new DK books that will coming out this week is the LEGO Star Wars: Choose Your Path that I’ve reported on a few months back. The style of the book is similar to the classic Choose Your Own Adventure books where you assume the role of a character, in this case U-3PO, and you make choices to determine the story’s outcome. LEGO Star Wars: Choose Your Path has 128 pages and retails for $19.99 and it releases on June 5.

Minifigure

As with a majority of DK books, there usually is an exclusive LEGO minifigure included but for this one, it isn’t an exclusive. With the book, we get U-3PO which was previously found in the 2016 LEGO Star Wars Advent Calendar (75146). Unless I missed something, it is the exact minifigure and is basically a color swap of most recent version of C-3PO.

Book

As I mentioned before, LEGO Star Wars: Choose Your Path is a story based book where you choose your way of how the story goes. There are three starting points to choose from, “Hunt the Sith,” “Fight the Empire,” or “Defeat the First Order.” For each page, it gives a short story in which you’ll have to find a way to continue the story by picking one of two ways and keep going until you find a good ending or it tells you to try again. There are more than 40 endings that you’ll be able to find.

The pages also showcase an actual LEGO set that has been previously released and it includes a short data file on the vehicle or a location.

Results

Overall, the LEGO Star Wars: Choose Your Path is a pretty fun book that kids would enjoy. There’s lots of reading to be had since there are a number of different endings to find on top of the facts that are also thrown in.

The U-3PO LEGO minifigure is a bonus if you missed out on the LEGO Star Wars Advent Calendar from a few years ago but it isn’t the main draw for this particular book.

Thank you to DK for sending in this book for me to review. The content above represents my own opinion and not the company. Review sets sent in does not guarantee a positive review.

There will be some new LEGO books coming out in the future for The LEGO Movie 2 and Harry Potter which will include possible exclusive minifigures. The book for TLM2 is called Emmet’s Guide to Being More Awesome and it will be similar to the first one.

Emmet is BACK and ready to show us all how to be even MORE awesome! The LEGO(R) Movie 2 hits theaters February 9, with an all-star cast, including Chris Pratt, Elizabeth Banks, Will Arnett, Alison Brie, and more! The sequel is sure to delight fans of all ages with its special brand of LEGO humor. This one-of-a-kind guidebook is narrated by Emmet himself(!) and comes with a buildable Emmet minifigure. It’s a must-have offering for fans of the film.

The Harry Potter one is an activity book filled with puzzles and games and it also has an unannounced minifigure.

This LEGO(R) Harry Potter(TM) activity book is packed with comics, puzzles, mazes, games, and more! Featuring all your favorite characters from the Harry Potter films, these pages are full of endless fun — plus, a buildable minifigure!

Both books have a listed release date of December 26 which is just a placeholder so that date will change. I’ll update when the book covers are revealed along with the minifigures.

DK Releases New Braille LEGO Book

LEGO DUPLO Farm Braille

DK has recently released a new book for young readers with visual impairment called DK Braille: LEGO DUPLO: Farm. This is the first LEGO book of its kind and teaches young children using both braille and tactile images. It is now available for purchase on Amazon for $14.99.

A high-quality LEGO DUPLO book with braille and tactile images for blind and partially sighted parents and children to share with their sighted family members. Produced in consultation with braille experts, this LEGO DUPLO board book explores LEGO DUPLO farm animals such as pigs and cows, and vehicles, such as tractors. It combines high-contrast colors with embossed images of the models for children to feel. Large-size text is printed alongside the braille, enabling sighted children to share the bonding experience of reading with their visually impaired parents, or for sighted parents to share with their visually impaired children.

LEGO Star Wars: Choose Your Path U-3PO Minifigure Revealed

LEGO Star Wars: Choose Your Path U-3PO

LEGO has revealed the U-3PO minifigure that’s in the upcoming LEGO Star Wars: Choose Your Path book that’s coming this summer. It’s a real disappointment as it looks to be the exact same as the one found in the LEGO Star Wars 2016 Advent Calendar unless my eyes deceive me. Usually the DK books will include an exclusive variant of a character but this is just lazy on both DK and LEGO’s part. If you didn’t get the advent calendar, the book is the cheapest way to get U-3PO unless you get it individually on BrickLink or eBay.
