What's wrong with 21303 WALL•E?

Posted by ,

The last few days of LEGO news have been dominated by discussion of 21303 WALL•E and its patchy availability worldwide. It is a great shame that such an impressive set has incurred so much negativity, although not without good cause as there is a significant flaw in the design of the model.

There has also been some confusion about what exactly is wrong with the set. This has been exacerbated by an email currently being distributed by LEGO customer services which refers to 4265484 and 4211695 as the pieces needed to resolve the issue, contrary to the known problem. Hopefully we can clarify both issues now.

MinifigForLife delves into the code

Posted by ,

MinifigForLife, the supplier of high-quality printed items (including Brickset minifigures and bricks) has teamed up with Chris Salt, the animator behind last year's Exo-Suit teaser, to produce a new advertisement for the website.

Peter Reid and Jeremy Williams also contributed to the video by creating the set and the music respectively. A job well done by everyone I think!

A new month means new sets!

Posted by ,

It has been a long and exciting summer of LEGO set releases but there is still no sign of any respite! Today is the 1st of September and that means a range of new products are now available from LEGO S@H. For most of the world these include the highly anticipated 21303 WALL•E, the latest LEGO Ideas model which was recently reviewed here. We will be able to clarify exactly what is happening regarding the set later today, having now received an explanation. For the time being it is not available at S@H in the US.

Other sets released today include 21024 Louvre, the three 2015 Advent Calendars and Series 14 of the Collectable Minifigures.

70751 Temple of Airjitzu is also now available for general sale. You can read our official review of the set here.

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.
