The LEGO NINJAGO Movie Happy Meals have landed

Posted by ,

Like with The LEGO Movie and The LEGO Batman Movie before it, The LEGO NINJAGO Movie has received its McDonald's toy promotion starting today (at least in the United States). Check it all out on the Happy Meal website, including the associated TV commercial.

There are six different ones, and can each be purchased separately from the food if you so desire... but who can say no to some Chicken McNuggets with your Dragon Periscope! ;-) Do you plan on acquiring any, or does no bricks = no buy?

I would be lying if I said I wasn't digging that lenticular cup...

The LEGO NINJAGO Movie kicks its way into theaters this Friday, September 22nd, in most territories, and October 13th in the UK.

Review: 10739 Shark Attack

Hello, dear readers, and welcome to The LEGO NINJAGO Movie week on Brickset! As we wind down our coverage of the UCS Millennium Falcon, we shall aim to provide you with the latest news and reviews as TLNM gears up for its North American theatrical release on Friday - culminating in a review of the film itself! Now, on with this set review...

Many young kids have grown attached to NINJAGO, and LEGO has noticed enough to produce a single Juniors set for The LEGO NINJAGO Movie in 10739 Shark Attack. While the price-per-part ratio is fairly lackluster, as is common with the Juniors line, there seems to be a lot to like about this set. With three minifigures (one of which being exclusive) and multiple models for the low price point of $19.99 or 19.99€, it is hard to turn down at first glance.

Furthermore, the set appears to go together nicely with the rest of the normal product range - particularly, 70606 Spinjitzu Training (recently reviewed here). In that regard, I hope to be pleasantly surprised.

HispaBrick Magazine 028 out now

Posted by ,

The latest issue of the excellent HispaBrick magazine is now available for free download.

In this issue of HispaBrick Magazine we have taken our networking skills to a whole new level:

We attended the LEGO Fan Media Days in Billund and met up with over twenty Fan Media representatives. In this edition, you will find a report of that event as well as a number of interviews with LEGO franchises we did during the event. While in Billund, we also ran into Robenanne, the designer of the Old Fishing Shop, and we interviewed him.

Richard Jones from The Rambling Brick put together a reconstruction of the conversation we had with Bali Padda for us to publish and Stuck in Plastic have contributed an article about their toy photographers collective. We have also worked closely with Eurobricks to offer a new collaborative section in our magazine and on their forums.

But, it’s not only Recognised LEGO Fan Media we have worked with. In collaboration with Kockice we have started another collaborative corner in our magazine and together with their team we are proud to present a Croatian language edition of HispaBrick Magazine 028!

This edition also includes articles about education with Six Bricks, reviews, robotics, MOCs and a lot of attention for the new LEGO Boost platform.

HispaBrick Magazine is free to download in Spanish, English and Croatian, so get your copy today and spread the word!

Millennium Falcon: Minifigs

Posted by ,
View image at flickr

Huw has completed his detailed assessment of the build so we are now turning our attention to the figures found in 75192 Millennium Falcon.

The focus of the set is most definitely upon the freighter, but it is complemented by an array of minifigures and creatures based on both the Original and Sequel Trilogies. Some collectors have expressed disappointment that a few members of the Millennium Falcon’s crew are absent from this set and I certainly share those sentiments, although those that are included look to be of the high standard we have come to expect in recent years as minifigure design continues to improve.
