The LEGO Ninjago Movie Trailer #2 arrives [News]

A few days ago as I was reviewing The LEGO Ninjago Movie Collectible Minifigures, I mused about what Lloyd’s mother ever saw in Garmadon. Well, I didn’t have long to wait for the answer, as revealed in this new trailer. We also catch a quick glimpse of Ninjago’s biggest enemy yet—and it’s probably not what you expect. The LEGO Ninjago Movie arrives September 22, and will be accompanied by a full line of sets, including one of the largest LEGO sets ever, 70620 Ninjago City.

The LEGO Ninjago Movie Collectible Minifigures 71019 [Review]

Just as LEGO did with The LEGO Movie and The LEGO Batman Movie, there’s a wave of collectible minifigures dedicated to the characters in September’s The LEGO Ninjago Movie. Revealed only a last month, 71019 The LEGO Ninjago Movie Collectible Minifigures will be hitting stores August 1 ahead of the movie, and feature 20 characters who, nicely enough, are not all ninjas. But much like the world of Ninjago itself, these characters, who range from a sushi chef to a teen pop fan, abide in a stereotyping mashup of all things Asian. The figures will retail for $3.99 each, and are concealed in blind packs just like previous series.

As one of the worlds largest toys manufacturers, the LEGO Company won’t miss the upcoming San Diego Comic-Con convention to present the new 2018 Super Heroes sets. Even though the convention starts next week, official pictures of the LEGO Super Heroes sets are already available online.

Sets will range from $19.99 to $39.99, which is definitely good news considering all the awesome minifigures.

LEGO Ninjago 70623 Destiny’s Shadow [Review]

The LEGO Ninjago Movie and the new 2017 Ninjago sets that will accompany the film are set to release this September. To tide ourselves over until then, let’s take a look at Set 70623: Destiny’s Shadow which was released earlier this year.

70623 Destiny's Shadow

The set retails for $29.99 and has 360 pieces. Considering the $0.10 per piece pricing many LEGO fans have come to expect, Destiny’s Shadow actually comes in below the expected price range. Additionally, the set currently has a 4.8 out of 5 stars review on Amazon (courtesy of five, yes five, total reviewers who either bought the set for their son or their grandson). Not bad!

LEGO Creator Expert 10258 London Bus is the latest addition to your London-themed LEGO collection [News]

Since the introduction of 10253 Big Ben, 10214 Tower Bridge and some LEGO Architecture sets, the LEGO Company seems to be on a mission to LEGO-ify London. Today, they’re adding more to the batch with a model of another hallmark of the British capital with the 10258 London Bus. This 1686 piece set will be an awesome addition to the LEGO Creator vehicle lineup as well, taking its place right next to another British icon, the 10242 Mini Cooper. The iconic red double-decker bus is an impressive copy of an AEC Routemaster, which first appeared on London streets in 1956 and ran till late 2005, becoming one of the world’s best-known public transportation vehicles.

For everyone else, however, if you want to buy one you’ll have to wait for the launch date of August 1, 2017, or get VIP early access on July 17. We’ve got the full press release, designer video, and all the images below.

The London Bus will retail for $139.99 in the USA and £109.99 and €119.99 in the UK and Germany, respectively.

3 LEGO sets from DC’s upcoming Justice League movie revealed [News]

Today, LEGO has pulled the wraps off three upcoming tie-in sets for DC’s Superhero Justice League movie, which is due in theaters November 17. The LEGO sets will arrive earlier, hitting store shelves August 1. This will be the first time LEGO has produced a film-accurate Aquaman minifigure, while the Batman and Flash minifigures sport updated designs. Between the new sets for The LEGO Ninjago Movie, Thor: Ragnarok, and the inevitable slew of Star Wars sets, it seems much of LEGO’s offerings for the rest of the year that we’ve seen so far are tie-ins to the big screen.
