Oops, I missed the announcement on this one! That answers my question whether there will be a Jurassic game huh?

Here’s the press release for the new StarWars big figs:
First LEGO® Star WarsTM Large scale Buildable Figures Unveiled at New York Toy Fair
Expanding the way children can build and play within the Star Wars universe, new large scale Buildable Figures unveiled – sets featuring, among others, Darth Vader and Luke Skywalker ($19.99 & $29.99 to be launched in September). Additional Buildable Figures in the collection will be unveiled throughout the year. The Battle for the galaxy will get bigger!
These look pretty amazing and very well designed. I’m guessing most people will get them to put on display rather than the parts, but those look pretty interesting as well. I’m anticipating a Boba Fett!
They have been making these types of figures for about a year now with the DC and Chima big figs that were based off the Hero Factory torsos, so this is no real surprise they are going in this direction. I’ve heard some detractors saying this is Galidor all over again which is confuses me on a technical level as they are very removed from that line on a construction standpoint. They are a similar scale and possibly trying to re-crack that action figure market so you can bet they are looking at their own history. Disclaimer: I have a large tote of Galidor in the living room *right now* and it’s still happily played with by my 4 yr old. If anyone has a line on Aquart hook me up.
Something in the mix of all the 2015 Lego that really lit up for me was in this Ant Man set:
They are making Triplo! Our local lug has been a bit Triplo crazy for a bit and now it’s at all our displays, so we are already trying to figure out if those are prints or stickers. The going theory is they are stickers but now I want to print out a sheet of water slide stickers.
Found a picture that answers whether or not Iron Man goes in the Hulk Buster:
Here’s BrickBoy, a vinyl figure from thinkgeek! The head opens up and they have some other motorized parts as well. I’m sure there will be more posts about this in the future.
This is an officially licensed stationery set from Santoro, all clicks together. mmmm.
Here’s a 3rd party Lego compatible adaptor for a product called Sphero which is a ball robot you can control with your smart device.
In Friends news there are pics of the latest sets now which we find our fearless minidolls leave the jungle to go on tour and rock out.
The girls seem to be on tour with their new friend Livi who has some pretty great hair dos. Some interesting new parts in this line include fig gear from headphones to those purples angled plates with a cut away in the centre of that star burst.
I’m more a fan of this big hotel set, bears much further investigation:
Now here’s something to pick up immediately: a Mad Magazine look at Lego
unfortunately it’s not the whole issue, just Sergio kickin it but still
Finally, how about a closeup of Sebastian. All these little Disney critters are just the best, the simplicity aesthetic and appeal of Disney is captured so well in these models. What other gems does Disney Princess have in store for us?
That’s all for now!
News of the new sets is swarming across the studded landscape and here’s a bunch of what has caught my eye so far.
I’ve always had a soft spot for Ninjago, especially with it’s deep roots in LU, and it almost feels as if it’s hit it’s stride in this year’s lineup.
All thumbnails biggify to remote links, I recommend a hover zoom plugin though
Previously in the Bionicle Department….
Let’s cancel Bionicle!
Everyone loses their minds.
Let’s introduce Hero Factory!
Minds continue to be lost.
Let’s introduce a new torso assembly!
No one notices because they can’t find their minds.
Let’s bring back Bionicle!
Everyone finds their minds and rejoice!
Let’s use this new torso assembly for everything!
No one cares, they are just happy Bionicle is back.
Lots of pretty interesting things happening in town this time around.
Jurassic World sets revealed! Think they’ll make a game that will include the previous movies?
I’m pretty jacked about the new Elves line and a couple that weren’t shown in the previous mix are these two horse riddled curiousities
Marvel is the it-girl of this year’s selection, so hot right now
We discussed the new Scooby sets in a previous post but here are a couple of surprises! Looks like Scooby comes in 2 different poses, sitting and standing?
So much StarWars…. With a couple of big announcements along with a bunch of stuff I have no idea what it is. StarWars Rebels is a show I haven’t seen yet so it’s a gap in my knowledge. Will have to get on that now that there is actual sets made huh!
If that wasn’t enough…. the big StarWars news is a new UCS TieFighter!
and a whole new line of big figures that have the Hero Factory/Bionicle torso assembly that was recently seen in the big DC and Chima figures as well. More about that in an upcoming post.
There’s more of course, including Minecraft and Mindstorms. Whew! That’s a lot of bricks.
The big news in the United Federation of Lego is the Dr. Who Ideas set that was just announced yesterday! This wasn’t exactly shocking as there were 2 up for review so you would hope that with that sort of momentum that one gets through. What’s with that though, the other campaign gets the shaft huh. They should each get some hype points because I bank that both of those had mutual voters. We all win because what a winning combo! This seems to keep happening where very similar ideas have to compete against each other, and if a couple make it to review then it really should be a new system.
Also is the Wall-E set by Angus MacLane who I had the pleasure to meet at a BrickCon in days yore. You might have seen his Cube Dudes around and here is his flickr: https://www.flickr.com/photos/27826007@N05/ filled with amazing builds.
If it wasn’t for those meddling Lego Idea sets then this would have been bigger news, a brilliant Honest Trailer for the Lego Movie:
The song parody is just brilliant and features those clowns from Epic Rap Battles of History, which I burnt through the whole thing in one morning awhile ago, they are so good ( very salty language though, here’s a Lego Zeus vs Thor! http://youtu.be/i_xFOmYxKYw )
I came across this very cool custom this morning which is fairly relevant for a Lego gaming blog such as this one. The dude wanted to make a custom Galactus after playing Lego Marvel and cooked up his own. The DIY photo gallery is stellar and includes steps to make your own if you are feeling bold.
My friend Mariann, also a former Lup!, over at Model Building Secrets found this lovely brick film that found that soft spot I keep for Mondrian. Very classy in it’s execution.
Check out some pics from the Nuremberg Toy Fair via thebrickblogger:
These are all non licensed lines but plenty of interesting 2015 stuff to check out! Glow in the dark Mixels… hrmmm…. I have a small jar of glow in the dark put aside for …. something?
and… here’s some random Lego pics I’ve come across recently.
Pictures of the new Scooby Doo sets and possibly the Series 14 Minifigs have hit the net.
Let’s get a closer look at these figs huh?
Here’s some possible Series 14 Minifigs that are timed to be released for Halloween. Seems legit if not shady at the same time huh
Ok gang! If it wasn’t for these meddling minifigs I’d actually be getting stuff done so I’m out
One of the more ambitious fan created reboots of LU has been put on pause, Project B.U.I.L.D.’s programmers are moving on. Anytime a fan venture stops is unfortunate and sorry to hear that this didn’t work out. A lot of effort and creativity went into this and I’m sure those involved are going to put their energies into something amazing.
