The set will cost you 1800 VIP points to redeem. Now is a great time to put in an order, get this set and earn double VIP points.

You’ll be able to get yours via the VIP rewards centre.

Hopefully this does actually go live when it is meant to.

Meet the LEGO Masters Season 3 contestants

LEGO Masters Season 3 starts on Monday April 19th and I for one can’t wait to see what incredible creations we’ll get this year. While we will have to wait and see what gets built we at least now know who will be building it… introducing the LEGO Masters Season 3 contestants (after this picture of Hamish, for anybody trying to avoid anything about the show before it airs).

Looney Tunes CMF Series officially revealed

After leaks and early sales all over the world LEGO has today officially shared the full line-up of the highly anticipated Looney Tunes CMF series.

looney-tunes-cmf-lineup-b

There are no chase Minfigures in this series so it should be possible to split a box with your friends.

Overall I really like these. Obviously there are some characters better suited to the minifigure format than others. There are also probably characters that people wish were included.

Do you plan on picking these up? Let me know in the comments.

It looks like the next LEGO Adidas shoes will be going on sale from midnight tonight.

The ADIDAS ULTRABOOST DNA X LEGO® PLATES SHOES are up on the Australian Adidas website with a price of $320. The “remind me” feature of the page set a calendar reminder for midnight AEST tonight (when it ticks over to April 8th).

I like the design of these a lot more than the previous LEGO Adidas shoes, especially the way these integrate the actual LEGO elements. I’m just not sure I like them enough to spend $320.

Let me know what you think of these!

Grab yours here.

What do you think of the Batman Cowl?

The buildable Batman Cowl is now up on the LEGO website, which means we’ve got a heap of pictures and the Australian RRP.

The set will cost $89.99 when it is released on April 26th. [affiliate link]

Honestly, I’m a bit mixed on this one. I like the concept but I don’t know if the gaping hole where Batman’s mouth would be works.

I’d love to you know what you think of it?
