10254 Winter Holiday Train Announced

Christmas may still be over 100 days away but LEGO have decided that August is the perfect time to announce their latest Christmas set. Introducing 10254 Winter Holiday Train.

10254 Winter Holiday Train 01

Rather than releasing another building LEGO have taken inspiration from 10173 Holiday Train and gone with a festive vehicle this year.

The set features 734 pieces including enough track to make a complete circle – perhaps around the base of your Christmas tree. While not included the set can be upgraded with Power Functions to have a fully operating train.

There are also 5 minifigures included; 3 adults and 2 children.

The Australian product page isn’t live yet but reports are that the Australian RRP will be $149.99. Expect a VIP release in mid-September.

New LEGO Batman Movie Trailer

LEGO Batman Movie Thumb

The first two teasers for The LEGO Batman Movie already had people pretty excited for the film, now we have a longer trailer to keep that hype going.

This new trailer features a lot of action as well as our first look at Robin and the Joker.

We now know that in the film Bruce Wayne adopts a young Dick Grayson at a charity auction. Still no official details on the role Batgirl will play in the film.

Here is the official synopsis; In the irreverent spirit of fun that made “The LEGO® Movie” a worldwide phenomenon, the self-described leading man of that ensemble – LEGO Batman – stars in his own big-screen adventure. But there are big changes brewing in Gotham, and if he wants to save the city from The Joker’s hostile takeover, Batman may have to drop the lone vigilante thing, try to work with others and maybe, just maybe, learn to lighten up.

Two LEGO Batman Movie Sets Revealed At SDCC

San Diego ComicCon just wouldn’t be the same without some new LEGO set news.

LEGO have just shared details of two new sets that will be launching with the highly anticipated LEGO Batman Movie.

The Batmobile

LEGO Batman Movie The Batmobile
The set features Batman, Robin, Man-Bat, and the Kabuki Twins. Batman looks great with his utility belt and Robin’s design is interesting to say the least. The Kabuki Twins were Penguin henchmen in The Batman cartoon so I’m surprised to see Man-Bat appear instead.

The Batmobile is different from the one seen in The LEGO Movie. We’ll have to wait for the film to see the story behind its design.

The Joker’s Notorious Lowrider

The LEGO Batman Movie Joker's Notorious Lowrider
Possibly the better of the two sets, the Joker Lowrider looks awesome. A great mix of bright colours and patterns.

The set also has some great minifigures; The Joker, Batgirl, Harley Quinn. All three figures have great printing.

On Sale: 20% Off Toys At Big W

It’s also been reported that Big W will adjust lay-buys for items that were less than 20% off during the toy sale. Of course there is no guarantee that every store will be aware of that but I have seen it posted on the Big W Facebook page.

This offer is in store only.

Update: Here is the lay-buy adjustment information that was mentioned.

LEGO Announces New BlockHeadz Theme By Showing 8 You’ll Probably Never Own

LEGO have used their Facebook page to show off a new theme for 2017 – BlockHeadz. They’ve done so by revealing 8 BlockHeadz that look pretty great – the problem is that the 8 they chose to share just happen to be San Diego Comic Con exclusives.

Brickheadz SDCC Batman Joker

BlockHeadz are small brick built characters with exaggerated blocky heads (like a LEGO version of the popular Pop Vinyl toys). The theme will launch in 2017 but there are no details on what the final theme will consist of other than the fact that the BlockHeadz come in pairs. The 8 characters that LEGO shared are all SDCC exclusives.

If LEGO are using Batman, Superman, Iron Man and Captain America in sets that can only be purchased in San Diego then it’s going to be interesting to see what the actual theme looks like.

You can check out all 8 of the exclusives below.
