Last week, LEGO created quite a stir when they pre released images of the series 9 Minifigs.. from the back…
Annnnnnnnd now, THEY’RE HERE..
Infinite number of win in this group..
I must say these look cool,(that purple potion vial is SWEET!) but the changes to the distribution mean that for some of these there’s literally only two per box….
Hey Guys! It’s rioforce here today! I am here as a sort-of-representative of the LEGO Universe News Forums. I have been an administrator on the forums for a while and am close internet-buddy to the founder, LegoFan101. LEGO Universe News Forums is a great place to hang out, tell cool stories, show off your cool creations, and just talk with friends. 🙂 LEGO Universe News Forums is kid-friendly too! We have really good moderators and strict rules for your safety. Just recently, LEGO Universe News Forums (LUNF) has changed themes! We are now celebrating Christmas. And in honor of LEGO Universe, we have put Frostburgh as the feature image. 😀
Now, you may be thinking, “Why would I join their forum? LEGO Universe is over and nobody wants to join a dead game forum!”. Yes, LEGO Universe is over BUT the fans aren’t! While LUNF is focused on LEGO Universe a lot, we are also the top spot for “LEGO Minifigures Online” (LEGO’s upcoming MMOG) news! We also have general LEGO discussion and really cool forum games! Plus, (thanks to Sim533), we have a LEGO Avatar Creator where you can put together your own LEGO Minifigure for an avatar. 🙂
What are you waiting for? Come on, register! We’ll be waiting. 😉
Hello! Michaelvortex here.
as you know brickcon was this last weekend, So my twin brother (MaverickDengo), father, sister, and some friends loaded up into the car and hopped on a ferry over to seattle sunday morning. Upon arrival the lines where ok, but as the day progressed the place got packed! I could hardly take a picture without someone bumping me and messing up my pictures 🙂
There were tons of amazing models to see. Some highlights included a Gigantic throne with a brick built ocean king (from the series 7 minifigs) which had some dancing shark guys and swimming mermaids underneath, a massive Hogwarts School/Castle (I’ve never seen Harry Potter) with cut away sections and detailed interior, a gigantic Seattle Space Needle and a smaller one with some superheroes flying around it, a giant atlantis themed scorpion walker/submarine thing, some awesome pirate ships, and many many other amazing builds!
We where there for about two hours and took in all the sights. We decided to head out about noon to go home. As we where leaving we found Steve/HappyPappy. He walked right past me because of course he didn’t know what I looked like, 😛 so I went up to him and said hi. My twin brother and I talked to him for a couple minutes and found out we barely missed running into each other at the LEGO store on thursday. We snapped a pic with him and then headed home.
All in all, we had a great time! The convention was awesome and there was tons to see! I hope to see more of you guys there next year!
Exhaustive and indepth review on Eurobricks of the Series 7 minifigs. Lots to like here, I wasn’t aware there was this many unique hair pieces!
Toys R Us has the new Avenger sets available and all snoopable like. I’m not sure looking at the vehicles if these are must gets but they look like great builds and wouldn’t sneeze at them if I found it under the tree. Whatever the case I’ll be doing plenty heap big bricklink orders in a few months once these go down in secondary market price. All images link to their respective TRU product page.
Wolverine’s Chopper Showdown (6866)
Captain America’s Avenging (6865)
Loki’s Cosmic Cube Escape (6867)
Hulk’s Helicarrier Breakout (6868)
Quinjet Aerial Battle (6869)
To it’s credit, the set looks well thought out and faithful to the game. It’s an interesting and modular standard that should really appeal to fans. I won’t cross the road to buy this though, how about you?
Here’s a good look a the new Avengers line. Some nice looking fig accessories here!
