LEGO Ideas Birds images revealed

Posted by ,

Although it was only revealed to have passed review a couple of weeks ago, images of the LEGO Ideas Birds set have been published beside an interview with the creator of the project, Tom Poulson.

The set will be available in early January priced at £39.99 or $44.99 and has been listed on LEGO S@H ready for release. I absolutely love the set and am looking forward to bringing you a review of it.

Thanks to all those who contacted us about this.

AFOLCON: Only hours left to wait!

Posted by ,

I am on the train heading to London at the moment as it is now less than 24 hours until AFOLCON begins. This is shaping up to be a great event featuring presentations from LEGO UK General Manager Fiona Wright, LEGO Minecraft designer Max Valembois and Peter Reid with Team Exo-Suit to name just a few.

The excitement will continue beyond Wednesday with the exclusive AFOLCON auction and even more presentations taking place on Thursday, Friday and Saturday evenings after Brick 2014 has closed.

Expect show reports from AFOLCON and Brick 2014 in a few days time.

UCS Helicarrier Confirmed?

Posted by ,

A UCS Avengers Helicarrier set has been rumoured for a couple of months now and thanks to some eagle-eyed members of the Brickset forum we finally have a first indication of what it might look like.

The set can be seen during the video introduction in the letter 'G' of DESIGN, where Marcos Bessa seems to be showing off the set in another designer video. Although we can only see a small portion of the set it is quite clearly a Helicarrier as the twin antennae on the front of the vehicle in the films are visible along with what appears to be a miniature Quinjet coming in to land.

Whether or not this set will be affiliated with the LEGO Ideas project currently in review we do not know, nor do we have any confirmation of when the set might be available. March 1st 2015 has been suggested with a retail price of $349.99, in which case I will be saving my pennies for then!

Thanks to Groove Bricks for the enhanced image.

Minas Tirith will finally have its day!

Posted by ,

Minas Tirith specifically, and Lord of the Rings in general, is one of the most popular (and common) subjects on LEGO Ideas.

At 9950+ supporters, Lord of the Rings Set: Minas Tirith has the distinction of being the first LOTR based project to reach review.

I know at least one Brickset commenter that will be thrilled to see this project reach its goal. ;)

If you love Minas Tirith but are "supporting on a budget", I must recommend this tiny Tirith which is almost at 1000 support.

It was only a matter of time before the press release for the much anticipated 10246 Detective's Office arrived and here it is! Unfortunately Huw is away on holiday at the moment so the images will not be added to the database for a couple of weeks. You can however view them on the Brickset Flickr photostream.

Anyway, the set will be available in January as expected. Here is the press release:

2015 LEGO City sets in TRU Canada

Posted by ,

It appears that sighting season has started earlier than usual this year, with the first of the 2015 sets turning up in Canadian Toys R Us stores. This is much earlier than they might usually be expected to arrive so can only bode well for seeing the sets in your area prior to Christmas.

Only a couple of City sets have appeared so far that we are aware of, 60082 Dune Buggy Trailer and 60083 Snowplough Truck.

If you are in Canada and try your luck, please report back on what you find.

Thanks to R4-G9 and The Brick Fan for the news.
