Moments ago, LEGO CUUSOO announced on their blog the results of their Fall 2012 review cycle, and the team has chosen the Perijove’s Mars Science Laboratory Curiosity Rover as the winner! Everything is still pending including the final name, price, and purchase details but you can view the announcement video and full post (reposted) below.
Unveiled moments ago at Brickworld in Chicago, LEGO has pulled the curtain back from their latest Shop@Home exclusive, 10234 Sydney Opera House. What’s interesting to me is that this set is being released as part of the Creator line and not the Architecture line for which there is already a small scale model of the same building. This set weighs in at 2,989 pieces and will set you back $319.99 US / $379.99 CA. 10234 Sydney Opera House is scheduled for release later this year in September, at the same time as 10236 Ewok Village. More images below, followed by the designer video, and then the official press release.
Today was the official first day that the life-sized X-wing Starfighter was revealed to the public in its new home at LEGOLAND California. I wasn’t able to attend the official ceremony ’cause stupid work got in the way but I was fortunate that forum member Mos Eisely was headed down there anyway. So I asked him to cover the even for me and here’s his report. There’s also a video followed by a copious amount of pictures of the model. It’s pretty impressive to say the least. I’m looking forward to seeing it in person this weekend.
Here’s what the Star Wars Weekend volunteers will be receiving as part of their swag this weekend at LEGOLAND California. In addition to the exclusive Clone Lieutenant minifig revealed a few days ago, volunteers will also receive the above Yoda Chronicles-themed t-shirt to wear, sell, or wash their car with. We hope they’d wear them though.
Star Wars Weekend is happening at LEGOLAND California this weekend June 15-16, father’s day weekend.
This popped up on YouTube a few months ago but I’m just now getting around to discovering it. The two and a half minute video shows some of the cut scenes used for the game. It prominently features Iron Man, The Hulk, Spider-Man, Sandman, and Abomination.
LEGO Marvel Super Heroes: The Video Game releases this fall on all current game systems. Pre-order your console version from Walmart.com to receive Iron Patriot, still the stupidest promo tie-in minifigure choice ever made.
This comes courtesy of reader Ben Doney. You get to see a little bit of Mr. Fantastic and The Human Torch from Fantastic Four in action as well as Sandman and some giant robot looking thing.
The game comes out later this year with some sites pegging the date as October 31, 2013. Remember, pre-order your Xbox 360, PS3, or Wii U copy from Walmart.com and get a free Iron Patriot minifig as a bonus.
