Lots of Lego news has been piling up in my scratch pad and going to chew through all of it while it’s still at best before date.
Lego Ninjago has been ressurected by it’s rabid fanbase! I have been so impressed with the sets that having been coming out the past year, thinking it was going all flaming phoenix blaze of glory, and it’s still not done.
Here’s a teaser poster, looks like roboninjas? Sounds good.
The binary spells ‘Nindroid’
This is allegedly a fig from the new lineup
Lego Architecture has a lovely new set out, the United Nations Headquarters:
More set details on Brickset:
There is a new series of Lego watches that are coming out geared more towards an adult audience. They have a familiar adjustable link wrist band but the watch faces are all new. There’s a wide selection, some digitial and some pretty complex like this one with week date and days:
The watches you find in the Lego store are $20-30, expect these to be upwards of $80 though.
The Brick Games are happening in Langley ( close to Vancouver ) on October 26th. This is not an official Lego event and I will be going more into this around the date. Robin Sather, Canada’s only Certified Lego Professional ( and former Sector 6 member! ) will be part of the hijinx.
BrickCon looked amazing! There’s lots to fawn about but immediate mention has to be said about Rivendell. I’m still finding out about it, but it was a collaborative piece put together in part by Alice Finch who did the infamous Hogwarts display.
Here are some pics from my friend Michelle:
There is a new Maersk ship coming out…. but not with any Maersk blue! This is curious huh. They are instead using the Friend’s azure blue. I guess Olivia and the gang had a painting bee, did the ship up in a more profitable colour.
Brick Owl is a new second hand Lego market, similar to bricklink. So similar that they are being sued by bricklink.
People were curious how the new shift in ownership would change bricklink and this is an unsavoury demonstration. They are lucky so far that they haven’t attracted the wrath of the mothership and legal sabre rattling just might. Oh hey, thanks bricklink for letting me know about another market alternative, I wouldn’t have known if it wasn’t for the fuss you were kicking up about them.
In related news, bricklink recently moved their servers to Amazon which is a pretty huge shift. They are roomies with Netflix, Instagram, Pintrest, etc now….
Beautiful new Cafe Corner set ( I guess they are not actually called that, but you know what I’m talking about )
10243 – Parisian Restaurant
Was I just recently ranting about nice parts? This set has some nice parts. White croissants… mmm yummy. Those inverted bowls look fab too!
Marvel is celebrating the release of the new TT game ( which I know you’re all jack and jilled about that one coming out ) with Legofied covers of a bunch of titles!
