Was strolling through the seasonal section, which is set for Halloween, at Target and ran across a bunch of these Batwing polybag sets. As far as minis go, this one ain’t too bad. The yellow 2×2 plate with Technic pinhole and the light grey cone making up the jet engine is a bit of an eyesore but those could easily be swapped out for black for a more Batman-esque look. It’s a great little poly bag and worth the $3.99 price tag. Leagues better than that awful 30300 Tumbler. And there you have our 10 second review.
On a related note, Target is also the place where you could pre-order LEGO Batman 3: Beyond Gotham and receive this very same polybag as your bonus. And here they are just selling the darn things. Not that it really matters; I imagine most AFOLS would have pre-ordered from Gamestop to get Plastic Man.
Thanks to ninnymuggins for the heads up.
I guess it’s Captain America week. Both Walmart and Amazon are discounting 76017 Captain America vs. Hydra down to $14.97. That’s a 25% discount off of the $19.99 MSRP. The set comes with 172 pieces and Captain America, Red Skull, and a Hydra henchman minifigures. This is the lowest price we’ve seen this set and beats our last mention by 3%.
Amazon has finally put up Captain America: The Winter Soldier (2-Disc 3D Blu-ray/DVD Combo Pack + Digital HD) up for pre-order. The current asking price is $24.99 for the combo pack which is discounted by 38% off of MSRP of $39.99. Single disc editions are also available: $19.99 for the Blu-ray and $14.99 for DVD. The movie is scheduled to be released this coming Tuesday September 9th.
Minecraft may not be my thing, but its popularity is undeniable. The transition from a CUUSOO project into a regular theme was not surprising since it was a fantastic ploy from the actual games creators, Mojang to get it noticed and picked up by LEGO. That license just keeps on building with the addition of the minifigure scale sets and Dutch brick site, Brickshop.nl has posted pictures of six sets that will soon be available.
The Minecraft Micro World sets must have sold well beyond the initially insane availability of the first set, so hopefully these will do well and Minecraft fans will be set for a while. I’m really impressed that they made a more generic Crafting Box that looks like it includes instructions for 8(!) creations, but still encourages the idea of building what you want which is the bedrock of both LEGO and Minecraft.
Update: LEGO Shop@Home has finally updated their site to include the Advent Calendars. Links are included below.
Amazon is now selling this year’s selection of LEGO Advent Calendars, and as usual the Star Wars calendar is $10 more than the Friends or CITY calendars. If years past are any indication, don’t procrastinate else you’ll be left high and dry once December rolls around. LEGO Advent Calendars sell out quick so I would advise you not to hesitate. If you’re not a Prime member, Free Super Saver Shipping starts at $35. Prime members get free two-day shipping. Links and prices are below:
We’ve known for some time now that the Plastic Man pre-order bonus was a GameStop deal for LEGO Batman 3: Beyond Gotham here in the US. And today, we’ve discovered that for UK fans, Plastic Man can be had if you pre-order your game from GAME.
LEGO Batman 3: Beyond Gotham is scheduled to be released on November 14th, 2014 for all current generation systems including PS3 and Xbox 360.
Amazon is applying some nice discounts, around 22-26% off, on select LEGO Lord of the Rings sets.
- 79007 Battle at The Black Gate is discounted 25% from $59.99 down to $44.99.
- 79006 The Council of Elrond is discounted 26% from $29.99 down to $22.09.
- Of course no Lord of the Rings sales post would be complete without the obligatory mention of 79008 Pirate Ship Ambush. The current discount for this set is 22% from $99.99 down to $77.94. Not the best discount we’ve seen so if you’re patient you might be able to get a better deal at a later time.
- 79005 The Wizard Battle is discounted 26% dropping the $12.99 set down to below the $10 mark for just $9.57.
Though technically not Lord of the Rings, the Hobbit set 79014 Dol Guldur Battle is similarly discounted with a 26% discount. It was $69.99 but now can be for just $51.99.
It looks like LEGO Shop@Home for North America finally got their act together and is now offering 76023 The Tumbler for sale. Its price tag is $199.99 and comes with Batman and The Joker minifigures and 1,869 pieces. In case you’re too lazy to scroll, we recently reviewed the set which can be found right here.
