Today was the LEGO Day at Fenway Park and the first 1,500 guests who purchased tickets to the event received a limited edition Boston Red Sox Wally set shown above. The 47 piece set features the Red Sox mascot and people have started selling it on eBay for a not so cheap price. Thanks to Jeff for the heads up.
Amazon UK has revealed two new LEGO Overwatch sets that will be coming out later this year and I’m super hyped about them. The first set is called Wrecking Ball (75976) and it features Hammond along with his mech in his default skin.
The other set is called Junkrat & Roadhog (75977) and it features a Junkrat minifigure and a Roadhog bigfig that’s a brand new mold along with their motorcycle. This set is an interesting choice since the bike isn’t actually useable in the game but just as part of the Junkertown map.
Earlier today, LEGO revealed a brand new LEGO Marvel Super Heroes Avengers: Endgame sets that will be shown off at San Diego Comic Con 2019 with the Avengers Hulk Helicopter Drop (76144). The set has 482 pieces and retail for $59.99 and will be available starting on November 25. The set features three minifigures of Rescue, Black Widow, and a Chitauri along with a bigfig of the Hulk with the Nano Gauntlet.
LEGO has released the designer video for the LEGO Star Wars BOOST Droid Commander (75253) set that is now available for purchase. LEGO designer Carl Merriam and Senior UX designer Steve Geist talk about how the LEGO BOOST is used alongside the app within this set. Droid Commander features R2-D2, a Gonk Droid, and a Mouse Droid and you can see them in action in the video below.
If you signed up for the LEGO Stranger Things earlier this month, this is a reminder that the Castle Byers building event will be held later on today if you have forgotten. I believe a majority of the stores will be doing it between 5pm-7pm and some will have slot times. If you didn’t sign up for the build, I suggest hanging out after the event has ended to see if the stores have any left over from people who didn’t attend.
