LEGO Transformers Optimus Prime (10302) Teaser

Get your hype meters on full blast because LEGO has just teased the LEGO Transformers Optimus Prime (10302) set coming in June. We’ve already given some details on the set with it rumored having 1,508 pieces and will be having a pre-sale for VIPs a few days before the official release. Optimus Prime is said to be the G1 version with all the accessories that was in the cartoon. The official announcement should be coming real soon now.


LEGO Transformers Optimus Prime (10302) More Details

There is some new information about the upcoming rumored LEGO Transformers Optimus Prime (10302) set coming from Promobricks. The set is said to be released in June with a VIP pre-sale a few days before release. It will have 1,508 pieces and will be based on the G1 version of Optimus Prime and not on the delayed Rise of the Beasts movie.

A neat feature of the set is that you can transform Prime from robot mode to truck mode without removing any pieces. Priced at €169.99, the set will also have a slew of accessories including his Ion Blaster, Energon Axe, the Allspark, and a jetpack. There will also be a UCS style plaque with his Tech Specs. As always, keep your expectations low and don’t get too worked up on it.


LEGO Mythica (40556) Revealed

Last year, LEGOLAND Windsor opened a new attraction called LEGO Mythica which was a fantasy story revolving around mythical creatures. This summer, there will be a LEGO Mythica (40556) set based on the attraction and it was first seen in the LEGO Building Instructions portal. Consisting of 520 pieces, the set features Maximus the Sky Lion and a colorful Unicorn called Bitsandbobs. There’s no word yet on availability and I assume it’ll be a LEGOLAND Windsor exclusive since it’s the only LEGOLAND park that has the attraction.

The build features a small jungle habitat that consists of three trees. The right side of the habitat has a small stream of water that uses trans-blue tiles. The larger tree on the left uses a combination of slopes and bricks to achieve the look. There are some hanging vines on the different sized leaves which looks pretty good. There are also some different colored flowers that are spread out on the habitat. Three chimpanzees that are situated on the jumper tiles but you pretty much put them anywhere. Lastly, there is a stickered plaque for Ethologist Dr. Jane Goodall.
