The latest Collectible Minifigure Series is basically just an ad for Disney+

Are you a fan of Disney+? Probably! I mean it is the streaming home of Star Wars, Marvel, Disney children’s classics, iconic Pixar movies and thousands of hours of premium Star movies and TV shows. All of that for the low price of $11.99 a month! What’s not to love?

So we’ve established that you love Disney+ but do you also love the Marvel Cinematic Universe? Well do I have great news for you!

Today LEGO has announced a whole new line-up of 12 collectible minifigures that celebrate the Disney+ part of the MCU.

The series features characters from WandaVision, Loki, The Falcon and The Winter Soldier and the up-coming What if? series.

Overall there are some great minifigures in the series. Zombie Captain America! Agent Carter?! I mean they are all really cool.

The series is released on October 1st and will have an RRP of $5.99.

This is not an ad for Disney+, unless Mickey wants to make a deal. Call me.

A weird new sale has just launched at Myer – a range of “Adult Collector” sets are discounted. I say strange because this is the stuff that Myer normally specifically excludes.

The sale runs from today until Sunday August 1st apparently.

If that wasn’t enough you can also currently get 30% off Technic, also until August 1st.

You can check out the Technic range here or the Adult Collector range here.
