You know what that means, we could finally have an opportunity to buy an official set with Batman’s latest ride. Assuming you didn’t buy the original, or the one that is currently on shelves now… Brent Waller is the man behind this Tumbler, which is one of many on CUUSOO and his goal was to create what he felt was the most accurate LEGO Tumbler in minifig scale. That’s a tricky mission and in my opinion a true minifigure scale vehicle would be able to accommodate enough figures to have one behind each of it’s dual windows. Would that look too wide? Probably, but if I have to choose an inaccurate vehicle I may as well stick with what’s available already. The biggest this going for this creations chances is the fact that it fits within the size they seem to be going for in this range. However, that may work against it as well because LEGO re-engineers the models to fit with their current building standard and that would most likely land it very close to the pre-existing LEGO versions anyway. This makes it into the June review and I wish him luck in the next stage, my feeling at this point is that he’s really going to need it.

The latest project to achieve its 10,000 supporters over at LEGO CUUSOO is the Mini Shop Series by Pekko. It moves into the June review window and while CUUSOO has said that these sets are meant to be one off releases, I think there is still hope for this one. The LEGO brand store is already represented with the store opening exclusive 3300003 even if it is more of a microscale set. I’d say the real question is whether or not LEGO still has connections with McDonald’s. Mickey D’s has released a few different LEGO toys in their Happy Meals over the years, including one that should be familiar to long-time fans of the site. Could this arrangement still go both ways? We’ll just have to wait and see.
I woke up late today. Anyways, LEGO CUUSOO posted their announcement video about an hour ago and the newest CUUSOO product will be 21103 Back to the Future Time Machine. No on-sale date or other item details have been released. I expect that information to come out sometime in January. The builders behind the project have decided to donate the 1% royalty they would have gained to the Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson’s Research. How awesome is that?
My mind is officially blown. And you thought the Minecraft set was hard to get…
LEGO CUUSOO posted on their blog today that the results from the summer review of supported projects will be revealed in a video message this coming Thursday December 20th. The four projects under consideration are EVE Online Ships – Rifter, Back to the Future DeLorean Time Machine, The Legend of Zelda, and Modular Western Town.
LEGO Shop@Home has restocked 21102 LEGO Minecraft. Just in time for Christmas delivery too! Price is $34.99. Pad your order to hit $49 or more and score free shipping. Keep in mind that LEGO is being very strict about a 1 per household limit, but that’s good news if you haven’t gotten your hands on one yet.
Now that Shop@Home has restocked, Amazon and Jinx can’t be far behind.
Thanks to hassmyster for the tip.
After posting yesterday on the Forbes article regarding the availability of the popular Minecraft set, LEGO released this on their CUUSOO Blog:
Hi LEGO and Minecraft fans! We’ve received word that a limited supply of LEGO® Minecraft Micro World sets will be available online from the LEGO Shop soon, however we can’t guarantee when it will be in stock or for how long the stock will last. The set is proving to be very popular, so we recommend you place your order as soon as you find the set available.
Our online retail partners, including the official Minecraft store at J!NX and Amazon.com are receiving stock as well, so you may also want to check those sources to secure your copy.
Please know that we’re doing everything possible to get this popular set back in stock as soon as we can. For updates, please keep an eye on the LEGO Shop at Home listing for the product.
We’ll try to update when stock becomes available, but I have a feeling this new supply will go quickly.
If you missed out on one of the hottest selling LEGO sets of this year, 21102 LEGO Minecraft, and dread having to pay aftermarket prices for one, you may be in luck. This Forbes article highlights a tweet from Mojang CEO Carl Manneh that LEGO will be producing more sets in time for the holidays. A quick call to Shop@Home yielded a reply that neither confirmed nor denied LEGO’s commitment. I’d keep my browser pointed here and here. You can also check back with us as we’ll try and stay on top of any new developments.
