Exclusive Clay minifigure with NEXO Knights Character Encyclopedia

Posted by ,

The LEGO NEXO Knights Character Encyclopedia has officially been revealed.

Perhaps the most interesting new announcement regarding it is the new Clay minifigure included. This one is halfway turned to stone! While I'm not certain of how significant this variant is (I need to catch up on the show :-) ), he indeed looks cool and may well cause fans to purchase the book! A full stone variant appears in 70356 The Stone Colossus of Ultimate Destruction.

It is available September 7th. Preorder yours today from Amazon.co.uk or Amazon.com, and catch a larger photo after the break!

Review: 30379 Quake Mech

Posted by ,

Each ninja pilots their own unique vehicle in The LEGO NINJAGO Movie and three such machines have been recreated in miniature and released as polybags. 30379 Quake Mech depicts Cole's vehicle which is the only one yet to appear as a larger model, although that will be available in a future wave.

I love the design of Cole's mech so am very much looking forward to a large version but this polybag looks excellent as well, incorporating many of the details seen in the film as well as plenty of rare pieces. In addition, the articulation is excellent given the limitations of this scale which allows you to create some remarkably dynamic displays.

Review: LEGO museum, Prague

As part of a holiday with my wife recently I had the opportunity to visit Prague in the Czech Republic which, as well as being a beautiful and vibrant city, is also home to dozens of small niche museums, including the Museum of Bricks and LEGO shop, billed as 'the largest private collection of LEGO models in the world'.

From what I can gather it started out as a display of the founder's personal collection but is now one of five LEGO museums in the country.

[UK] Toys R Us slashes prices in half

Toys R Us has slashed the price of most, if not all, of the DC Super Hero Girls, Star Wars Constraction, Wonder Woman and The Angry Birds Movie sets by 50%, and many others by 30% or more.

It's somewhat surprising to see even the June Super Hero Girls and Wonder Woman sets discounted so heavily so soon after release. Either they are not selling or they were over-priced to start with. Probably both!

Whatever, there are some bargains to be had and you'll find them all listed on our Toys R Us page.

Review: 70607 NINJAGO City Chase

70607 NINJAGO City Chase is one of the smaller sets based on The LEGO NINJAGO Movie but has been the subject of much anticipation due to its impressive minifigure selection and low price point. The set contains 233 pieces and five minifigures but costs just £14.99 in the UK or $19.99 in the US so seems to offer brilliant value.

Furthermore, the setting for the skirmish and the models included recall 7195 Ambush in Cairo which is one of my favourite small sets. I am hopeful that this slightly bigger set will be even better, particularly since three of the figures, Nya, Officer Toque and Ham, are not currently available anywhere else.

As well, a new poster released for Comic-Con, which was given out for signing by the cast, has been revealed by MTV. The ninja team, Wu and Misako stand front and center, as father and son Garmadon and Lloyd do mech battle in the background.

You can watch the new trailer after the break. Be wary of potential spoilers...
