LDraw.org 2017-01 Parts Update Now Available

Willy over at LDraw has let us know that they have updated their parts list and is now available to download. If you’re not familiar with LDraw, it is a good software to use for MOC design and planning and is a little different than LEGO Digital Designer. It’s a bit more advanced than LDD and it also has a lot more older parts to choose from than with LDD. You can also design your own building instructions if you desire.

The 2017-01 LDraw Parts Update has been now been released. This adds 717 new files to the core library, including 509 new parts and 33 new primitives. This update also includes updated versions of the colour configuration files (LDConfig.ldr and LDCfgalt.ldr) thanks to Willy Tschager and Magnus Forsberg.

Thanks are of course due to all the part authors who created or corrected parts for this release, including several first-time authors. The reviewers also play an important role in keeping files moving through the Parts Tracker and deserve just as much credit.

You can preview the new parts in 2017-01 here, download the zip-file update or Windows install package here. Alternatively you can use the LDView menu option File | Check for Library Updates… to install the update.

LEGO® Marvel Super Heroes 2 “Champions” DLC Character Pack Revealed

Pack Adds Favourite Teenage Super Heroes from Marvel Comics Series

Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment announced today the characters in Champions, the next downloadable Character Pack for LEGO Marvel Super Heroes 2. The upcoming pack, priced at $1.99, will add characters from Marvel Comics’ popular Champions comic book series, offering players the chance to unleash the limitless strength of Amadeus Cho and supersonic flight of Nova.

The Champions are a group of teenage Super Heroes started by three Avengers disillusioned by the behavior of their elders and the general state of distrust by the people towards super-powered beings. Eager to show the world what it truly means to be a Super Hero, they formed their own team and soon recruited other teenagers with similar ideals to their cause. Together they are determined to change the world their own way!

LEGO Star Wars DJ (40298) Polybag Review

LEGO Star Wars DJ (40298)

A few days ago, I reported that the new LEGO Star Wars: The Last Jedi DJ (40298) minifigure polybag has shown up at various Toys R Us locations. I check the inventory when I went to work and saw that they did indeed have some on the floor available for purchase at my nearest TRU. Unfortunately, they were street dated until January 9 but the manager on duty allowed the purchase to go through. They retail for $5.99 each but I got an employee discount on it. The item number is 379276. There are potential spoilers after this point but it’s been almost a month since the movie has been out so it’s up to you if you want to proceed or not.
