71235 Midway Arcade revealed

Posted by ,
Fun Pack: Midway Arcade

There are currently 38 LEGO Dimensions packs in the database and with just under a month until the release of the first wave we finally have an image for 71235 Midway Arcade. As you can see this Fun Pack consists of a white car, a retro gamer minifigure and a rather nice arcade machine. Unfortunately the set will not be available until next year, but until then there are plenty more sets to satisfy our gaming needs!

According to the latest press release about LEGO Dimensions the Midway Arcade level features various classic arcade games which Gandalf, Wyldstyle and Batman must fight their way through. You can read the full press release, which also refers to The Simpsons level, after the break.

First image of 40138 Holiday Train

Posted by ,

Promobricks has found an image of this year's first Holiday free gift, 40138 Holiday Train. While unfortunately it's not quite a replacement for 10173 it's still a nice model which I will look forward to picking up.

In the US it will be available with a purchase of $99 or more between October 13th and November 13th. I imagine availability elsewhere will be similar.

21303 WALL•E delayed?

WALL•E

WALL•E

Rumours have been circulating over the past few days that 21303 WALL•E will not be released on the 1st of September as originally planned. Instead the set will be delayed to allow time for the correction of a fault. This has been confirmed to The Brick Fan by an employee of a US LEGO Store.

However, the Brighton LEGO Store in the UK says different. Apparently they have a batch ready to sell in their stockroom and have received no instructions to return them to the distributors.

I can see why they might wish to make a slight change to the set design as the neck joint is notably loose, as mentioned in the recent Brickset review. On the other hand, returning sets to LEGO for the change to be made would be expensive so I doubt it would be done at this late stage unless the circumstances were more severe. I suspect any improvements to the design will only appear in the second production run.

We will just have to wait and see what happens on the 1st of September!

Review: 70751 Temple of Airjitzu

Posted by ,

Ninjago has become one of the most popular LEGO themes of the past decade, with a range of excellent sets which generally appeal to children and adults alike. The latest and largest of these is 70751 Temple of Airjitzu, a 2028-piece set recreating the Temple on Haunted Hill which appeared in season five of the TV show.

The spectacular oriental architecture is hugely impressive and will probably be the most appealing aspect of the set for most adult fans, although the play features are also very enjoyable and there is a brilliant range of figures too. For those reasons I suspect this set will sell rather well as there is a substantial potential market for it in my opinion, despite the fact that Ninjago is typically aimed at younger buyers.
