Make & Take Plus Competition At Toys R Us

This Saturday at Toys R Us is a special event called Geoffrey’s Day. The day is all about celebrating play. There are special events on in every Toys R Us store, and according to the email I received one of those events is a LEGO Make & Take.
Toys R Us Geoffreys Day 2017

There is no information other than a mention of it on the Geoffrey’s Day page, so I don’t know what the actual set is. There is also no registration page for this Make & Take, so it’s likely to be a first in first served scenario so you’ll want to get to the store nice and early.

If you are planning to pick up some LEGO on the day then you can go in the draw to win an awesome LEGO prize pack. To go in the draw you’ll need to spend $50 or more on LEGO products. You can click on the image below to see more information about the competition.

Geoffrey’s Day is Saturday July 15th, and is one day only.

Justice League Set Details

With the release schedule for the second half of the year now out there were a few sets that we previously didn’t know a lot about – three sets from the Justice League movie hitting cinemas later this year. I have taken the time to compile the available images for those sets and post a bit more information about each. All of these sets are scheduled for August release.

Please note that these sets may contain spoilers for the Justice League movie. It’s hard to say exactly to what extent the sets spoil things, but there are certainly plot points revealed below.

76085 Battle of Atlantis, 197 Pieces, $34.99

76085_Image01

The smallest of the three new sets is the Battle of Atlantis. The main draw is a fantastically detailed Aquaman minifigure. Also included are two Atlantean Guards and one Parademon. It seems that part of the movie will relate to the Mother Boxes, and one is included here. A lot of sand green elements are also present – a colour that is quite popular. Aquaman includes a new Power Blast element, that when pressed shoots out of the minifigure’s hand. It will be interesting to see if that causes any damage to the hand over time.

[See the set descriptions and galleries for all three sets below.]

Review: 70900 The Joker Balloon Escape

70900 Review Thumb

With The LEGO Batman Movie out now on DVD and Blu-ray it seemed like a great excuse to finally build this set I’ve had sitting around for a while.

The Joker Balloon escape is the smallest and cheapest of the sets in the first wave. Like most of the first wave sets 70900 is based on the opening scene of the film where the Joker brings a team of villains together. There are two main elements to the build… The Joker’s balloon/rocket hybrid jetpack and a small section of the Gotham energy facility.

Also included are two minifigures – Batman and The Joker.

For a small set it’s great that both Batman and The Joker are included. It’s a great way for kids to get the characters without having to spend a fortune.

Release Schedule For Second Half of 2017

2HY 2017 Catalogue Cover

Over the weekend the LEGO Catalogue app on my phone was updated to feature the new catalogue for the second half of the year. Unfortunately I haven’t been able to find a PDF version online but I have gone through page by page to compile a list of all the release details.

I have also included the June stuff, even though it should already be in stores. While some of the City sets showed up for the Toy Sales, the full range should be released this month, along with the coast guard sets. The new LEGO Batman Movie sets should also be appearing soon.

The only hint of The Last Jedi sets is a page saying they will be revealed in September. There are also details of the three Justice League sets coming out in August.

If there is a set not in the list below that likely means that it is a store exclusive or not coming to Australian retail. The catalogue is for the general release sets.

You can view the full list of 90 sets below. The list is searchable and sortable if there is a particular set that you are looking for.

10258 London Bus Announced [Updated]

While the Mini Cooper has already had the Creator Expert LEGO treatment, an even bigger British icon is now becoming a LEGO set – introducing 10258 London Bus.

10258 London Bus

With 1680 pieces this set is designed to be displayed with the other large Creator Expert sets – The Mini, Beetle and VW Camper. The London Bus features realistic external styling and a detailed interior on both the upper and lower levels. The roof and upper level can be separately removed to allow a closer look inside.

You will be able to chose how you’d like to display this set as it has been designed with modern and classic decoration options. The advertising banner on the side features an alternative vintage style ad for biscuits.

To make the set a little more realistic there are also some nice little touches like wear and tear on the seats and items left behind by passengers (a can, newspaper and forgotten umbrella).  Some fun LEGO touches have been added with the destinations Yellow Brick Road, Brickadilly Circus and Twobytwo Square.

There are lots of details to check out so read on for the official product description, designer video and gallery below.

The set will be officially released on August 1st, with a VIP pre-release on July 17th. No Australian pricing at this stage but I will update you once I know. The Australian price has been confirmed as $199.99.
