The success of the last year’s LEGO NinjaGo 70620 NINJAGO City exclusive set has proved that LEGO fans – both young and adult – are ready for huge and elaborate LEGO sets expanding the boundaries of the regular line-ups. Even though The LEGO Ninjago Movie premiered last September, the second direct-to-consumer set is just to be released this Summer. LEGO Ninjago 70657 NINJAGO City Docks has been recently listed in certain online stores, and now we’re having the first look at the next addition to the amazing City of Ninjago. unfortunately, there’s still no information about the pieces count or the price of the set, but we expect it to be around $250/250€.
The highly anticipated Darth Vader Pod has finally been released. LEGO fans were quite disappointed after it was initially canceled last year for the Christmas period due to manufacturing issues. Since then, we’ve known that the pod’s unique feature is its metallic/chrome-based finish, which drove up the hype when LEGO announced that it was back again for this month’s promotional giveaway. Was it worth the wait? Let’s take a closer look at this sought after polybag.
Tomorrow marks 5 months since the day the LEGO House opened its doors for all LEGO fans and their families. Back in September this amazing venue surprised us with the biggest LEGO creation is the world – a gigantic Tree of Creativity built of 6.3 million LEGO Bricks. Now you can get your own small scale Tree with 4000026 LEGO House Tree of Creativity set announced today. The 837-piece set will be available exclusively to the visitors of the LEGO Store in LEGO House in Billund. The set will retail for 599 DKK ($99 USD) on March, 1st. But hurry up! Only 10.000 copies of the set will be produced!
On 22 Sept, LEGO House opened it’s doors to over 600 adult fans of LEGO and their families, allowing advanced access to this world of creative experiences. The official public opening is on the 28th Sept, but The Brothers Brick flew over to Billund to attend the preview opening to give you a closer look inside the Home of the Brick.
LEGO House exterior is certainly striking, designed by Danish architect, Bjarke Ingels to look like a stack of bricks from the outside with the keystone white 2×4 LEGO brick on top. The 21 colourful interlocking bricks contain four playful Experience Zones, with tons of creative fun, a Masterpiece Gallery inside the Keystone at the very top, a LEGO History Museum in the basement, three restaurants, and a LEGO Brand Retail Store. Lets step inside.
On entering LEGO House, you find yourself in the main foyer. A cavernous area that reaches from the floor to the Masterpiece Gallery in the roof. The foyer is known as LEGO Square and is where the LEGO Retail Store, two restaurants, Brickaccino cafe and elevator access to the roof terraces can be found.
Last week, The Brothers Brick attended the preview opening event at the LEGO House, the new LEGO experience centrally located at the home of the brick in Billund, Denmark. Two of the exclusive Pick-A-Model sets available at the LEGO Store within LEGO House are mini fish tanks. These will provide a memory of the day as one of the awesome attractions is a huge selection of bricks available to build your own fish, scan it and then watch as it happily starts to explore the digital underwater world around you.
The instructions are for two different Fish Tank pick-a-model builds, 3850060 and 3850061, with 33 and 34 parts respectively. Each set comes in a blister pack with parts and a instruction booklet but they are simple builds that can be made with similar parts you have at home.
