LEGO Architecture LEGO House (21037)

At the beginning of the month, I reported that there was a new LEGO Architecture set based on the LEGO House (21037) as what it looks like in Billund, Denmark. There are now official images of the set which came from the LEGO Architecture website but was eventually taken down. The building instructions for the set have also been readily available as well.

As far as I know, the new LEGO Architecture LEGO House (21037) will be available in September at the LEGO House shop itself. I don’t believe that it’ll be available worldwide which is a shame as it is a great looking set.

LEGOLAND California Announces New LEGO City: Deep Sea Adventure Ride and 4D Ninjago Movie

LEGOLAND California

Earlier today, I was invited to LEGOLAND California for some big announcements for the park coming in 2018. The main attraction announced was the LEGO City: Deep Sea Adventure which is slated to open summer 2018. General Manager of LEGOLAND California, Peter Ronchetti, stated that the attraction is the park’s largest ride investment and it’s the first of its kind in North America. The ride is a 12 person submarine that takes you on a 4 minute journey though a 300,000 gallon aquarium that is filled with sea life including stingrays, sharks, and other fish.

Another thing that was announced for LEGOLAND California is a new 4D experience movie called LEGO Ninjago: Master of the 4th Dimension. There wasn’t much information about this movie but it does show the ninjas in their Hands of Time outfits.

If you want to check out the press event, I’ve embedded the video below.

CARLSBAD, Calif. (August 24, 2017) – LEGOLAND® California Resort’s General Manager Peter Ronchetti announced at today’s press conference that 2018 will be a year of enormous growth! In January, a new 4-D movie launches, followed by the opening of LEGOLAND® Castle Hotel in the spring and, just announced, LEGO® City Deep Sea Adventure submarine ride is opening in the summer! LEGO® City Deep Sea Adventure is Merlin Entertainment’s single largest investment in any LEGOLAND® Park and will take passengers aboard a real submarine where they will be submerged underwater and immersed in an ocean habitat.

“I’m extremely excited for our guests to experience LEGO City Deep Sea Adventure submarine ride,” said Ronchetti. “For the first time in the United States, we are bringing our guests onboard a real submarine where they’ll go underwater to discover a truly amazing world filled with more than 2,000 different real sea animals, including several species of stingrays and a variety of exotic sharks.”

The ride will open in summer of 2018 and takes guests on a submarine ride looking for lost treasure on a sunken LEGO shipwreck. Among the real sea animals are bright LEGO octopi, marine tropical fish and LEGO scuba divers. Touchscreens at each porthole inside the sub are used by guests to help the LEGO minifigure dive team identify gems, pearls, LEGO gold coins and more throughout the journey. Up to 12 guests will board one of eight submarines that are designed after the LEGO City Deep Sea Adventure line of toys.

The summer exploration ride is opening shortly after LEGOLAND Castle Hotel opens in the spring of 2018. “We are excited to expand our LEGOLAND kingdom with LEGOLAND Castle Hotel, not only for the new adventures it will bring to our guests, but also the new jobs it will create for the community,” said Ronchetti. Ronchetti announced the hiring will start today for 200 new Model Citizens (employees) to work at new premium themed 250-room hotel. Thirty leadership roles are needed including Head Chef, Front Office Manager and Food and Beverage Manager. “We’ll be starting to recruit the other positions as early as December as we’d like to have everyone royally trained and ready to go by the Hotel’s opening in spring!” Some of the positions needed include cooks, valet, housekeepers, entertainers and more. Interested individuals can visit http://jobs.LEGOLAND.com/.

LEGOLAND Castle Hotel will feature three room themes: Knights and Dragons, Magic Wizard and Royal Princess. Bookings for LEGOLAND Castle Hotel begin in September. For more information, visit: www.LEGOLANDVacations.com.

Also opening in 2018: “LEGO® NINJAGO® – Master of the 4th Dimension” starting Jan. 12 in the LEGO® Showplace Theater. The short film combines dazzling 3D computer animation with 4D real-world effects offering guests the chance to go on an amazing new adventure with their favorite ninjas: Kai, Jay, Cole, Zane, Lloyd, Nya and Master Wu.

LEGO City Deep Sea Adventure submarine ride and LEGO NINJAGO – Master of the 4th Dimension are both included in the cost of admission to LEGOLAND California Resort.

LEGO Star Wars Scarif Stormtrooper (40176) Polybag Review

LEGO Star Wars Scarif Stormtrooper (40176)

Next week is Force Friday II for Star Wars: The Last Jedi and LEGO will be having some promotions going on for it. One of these promos is the exclusive LEGO Star Wars Scarif Stormtrooper (40176) minifigure polybag with a purchase of $50 or more. This polybag is in the same style as the R3-M2 (40268) as it has a stand and backing card.

Minifigure

The Scarif Stormtrooper, also known as a shoretrooper, is exclusive to this set as it is different from the one in the TIE Striker (75154) and the Battle on Scarif (75171). He has on a tan armor with a sand blue stripe that goes across the top. Both of the arms are also sand blue. The legs are also tan with some brown on the upper half. He also wears a dark blue kama around the waist to signify that he is a squad leader. His accessory is a blaster rifle.

Stand

Continuing with this series of minifigure polybags, the Scarif Stormtrooper also comes with a stand. The build is the exact same as R3-M2 as it uses a black 3×4 plate to stand the minifigure on. It also has a Technic pin to connect to R3-M2’s stand.

The background card shows a sandy location, most likely on the beach of Scarif. Once again, you have the LEGO Star Wars logo on top with the copyright on the left side. It connects to the stand using a couple of Technic axles on the back. One thing to note is that, you don’t have to punch out the little holes like you had to do for R3-M2.

Results

I do like the LEGO Star Wars Scarif Stormtrooper (40176) minifigure polybag especially when it is connected to R3-M2. The Scarif Stormtrooper minifigure itself is exclusive and is another character from Rogue One that was used in this type of polybag. Who knows if LEGO has planned for more Rogue One characters to continue with these polybags or if there will be different ones from another movie.

Again, you can pick up the Scarif Stormtrooper during Force Friday II from September 1-3 with a purchase of $50 or more.
