LEGO DC Villains “Confirmed” by Walmart Canada

At the beginning of the year, I reported on some upcoming rumored video games which included LEGO The Incredibles and something called LEGO DC Villains. As we know by know, the LEGO The Incredibles Video Game was officially announced back in March. It looks like now we can potentially the LEGO DC Villains video game as well. According to Variety, Walmart Canada earlier today accidentally leaked a bunch of upcoming games including the aforementioned LEGO DC Villains game. The listing has since been removed but it looks like the cat is out of the bag. Of course Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment nor TT Games will confirm it at this time but hopefully they’ll tease something now that the information is out in the wild. Perhaps they’ll announce something at E3 2018 or at San Diego Comic Con.

It has been reported that the main focus of the game will be centered around the DC villains instead of the super heroes as with previous LEGO games. Now that LEGO Marvel Super Heroes 2 is starting to wrap up their DLCs, we’ll turn our attention to the next two games in the pipeline.

LEGO DC Comics Super Heroes Aquaman: Rage of Atlantis

Amazon has updated a listing of the upcoming LEGO DC Comics Super Heroes Aquaman: Rage of Atlantis original animated movie which will include an exclusive LEGO Jessica Cruz Green Lantern minifigure. The movie will come in both Blu-Ray and DVD formats which seems to both include the Jessica Cruz minifigure. Images of the minifigure have surfaced online a few months ago but it’s nice to see where we are able to get it. LEGO DC Comics Super Heroes Aquaman: Rage of Atlantis will be released sometime this summer. Check out the trailer below.

LEGO & DC Comics are at it again: Aquaman has to defend his ocean realm against Atrocitus and the Red Lanterns with the help of the Justice League: Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman, Cyborg & Green Lantern. There will also be some newbies to the DC animated world sprinkled in. LEGO DC Super Heroes – Aquaman: Rage of Atlantis is set to release later this summer.

LEGO Unikitty Roller Coaster Wagon (30406) Polybag Found at LEGOLAND

LEGO Unikitty Roller Coaster Wagon (30406)

Late last month, the official images of the LEGO Unikitty sets started appearing online along with the Collectible Figure blind bags which are slated to come out later this summer. There’s now also news of a polybag for the theme which has started to hit LEGOLAND and LEGOLAND Discovery Centers as well as on eBay called the Unikitty Roller Coaster Wagon (30406).

It has 46 pieces and includes the most basic variant of Unikitty. What’s interesting here is that Unikitty uses a new reverse 1×3 plate for the neck that connects to a pin to give the head more stability unlike the original Unikitty from The LEGO Movie line. You can check out a review of the polybag from Just2Good below. There’s no word on a wider availability at this time as LEGOLAND usually sells polybags before other retailers but I’ll keep you updated.
