Final Design Of LEGO Ideas Exo Suit 21109 Revealed

LEGO Ideas Exo Suit 21109

Following on from the earlier video teaser, LEGO has released a longer three minute video that shows us the final model for the Exo Suit set.

We are big fans of the original project, and it appears that the final model is just as epic. Of course an Exo Suit needs a pilot, and LEGO have been generous and provided not just one but two classic space style minifigures – in green! We are expecting this set to be a huge success.

Official set details (price, part count etc) are expected soon.

The image included above comes via the updated Ecto-1 instructions. The larger version can be found at Brickset.

LEGO Ideas Exo Suit Teaser

Exo Suit Logo

It looks like some of Benny’s fellow space explorers have run into some trouble on a salvage mission.

Salvage team Alpha Zero Nine went looking for adventure. They may have found more than they bargained for…

This teaser video is part of the launch of the LEGO Ideas Exo Suit project, which is due to be officially unveiled later this month. We are really excited to see more of that classic space logo; with it featuring on Benny’s Spaceship, the VIP Spaceman promo and soon the Exo Suit. It’s great that LEGO is acknowledging part of their history that is loved by older LEGO fans.

Final Design Of LEGO Ideas 21110 Research Institute Revealed

When we found out that the Research Institute had passed the review, we were excited to see what the final design would look like. LEGO has given Alatariel Elensar, the LEGO fan behind the project, a copy of the final set to review. Alatariel has taken a heap of photos and done a full review, and we are really impressed with what we see. LEGO seems to have stuck pretty close to the original fan project. The LEGO T-Rex skeleton is fantastic.

This is the official box front of the set, but be sure to check out Alatariel’s blog for more pictures and her full review.

David Jones 20 PC Off LEGO

Perhaps feeling the pressure from the other Toy Sales that are on at the moment David Jones has decided to extend their toy offer to include 20% off LEGO.

The sale appears to be on now (June 25th 2014) and runs until July 6th 2014.

This is a broad offer, so there is no catalogue deals to go through, but David Jones does stock a decent range of larger sets. The most expensive set on their online store is the 10234 Sydney Opera House which is reduced from $399.99 to $319.99. We heard from one reader who managed to pick up a Simpsons House set.

You can check out their online range here or head to your local David Jones to take advantage of the offer.

Thanks to Mark for the tip.
