LEGO Shares Set Images For The LEGO Batman Movie


Update: This Wall Street Journal article gives the lowdown on price and availability. Batcave Break-In will retail for $99.99, comes with 1,045 pieces, and will include Batman, the Penguin, Bruce Wayne, Alfred Pennyworth, and two Hench-Penguins. Mr. Freeze Ice Attack will retail for $19.99, comes with 201 pieces, and will include Batman, Mr. Freeze and a security guard. And finally, Arkham Asylum will retail for $149.99, comes with 1,628 pieces, and will include Batman, Robin, Aaron Cash, Dr. Harleen Quinzel, Barbara Gordon, Poison Ivy, the Joker, the Riddler, Two-Face, Catwoman and two GCPD officers. Arkham Asylum will be a Toys’R’Us exclusive.

If you’ve been wanting more Batman-based LEGO sets, The LEGO Batman Movie will fill the void and LEGO shared images of three sets based on the movie on their Facebook page. They all look like really great sets with a range of characters across them. The Arkham Asylum set alone has 12 minifigs! No other information is available at this time. The LEGO Batman Movie is set to hit theaters on February 10, 2017. I’d imagine these sets will be part of the January wave in order to build hype for the movie.

DC Super Hero Girls Hi-res Images, Including Figures


LEGO sent over the hi-res images of the three sets that they tweeted yesterday. They also included pictures of the character minidolls. With New York Comic Con happening this weekend from Thursday October 6th through Sunday October 9th, there may additional information on this line to come out in the next few days. We will keep our eyes peeled for any news. In the meantime, enjoy the pics below!

LEGO DC Super Hero Girls Finally Revealed


LEGO has finally revealed the first three sets in the LEGO DCComics Super Hero Girls theme, which used the Friends mini-dolls and blends with a lot of different product offerings in the Girls theme. It’s kind of shocking that these took so long to show up, since they were first announced in a press release sometime back in 2015. There have been dolls, figures, and dress up toys in the overall theme for over a year now, so LEGO is the last one to the party here.

This is about the best (for my daughter) and worst (for my wallet) development for me. My daughter already has claimed all of my Mighty Micro figures and Friends minidolls, so these will enter into the mix. Sadly, the over-arching theme for the Super Hero Girls is DC-only, so it doesn’t seem likely that we’ll see Marvel ones anytime soon. Disney is overly protective of the Princess line, and doesn’t see to realize that some girls want to pretend to be Elsa and Spider-Gwen.

The initial lineup is solid, though there is one very big, Wonder Woman, omission. Lena Luthor is the one I don’t think I’ve seen in the other toys, either, but it’s still a good little mix. I’m especially excited for that Batgirl set, since that looks to be a straight-up swooshable set, which is extremely rare in the Friends lineup.

Official Image of Dimensions Sloth Minifigure Tweeted

@LEGODimensions tweeted out the above picture a couple of hours ago as of this writing of the Sloth minifigure from the upcoming Goonies expansion pack. I for one am relieved and giddy at the fact that they are using an accessory on top of a regular minifig head to for the figure instead of one molded piece. As far as I can tell, there is no release date yet for the Goonies pack but you can bet we’ll be keeping our eyes and ears peeled for any updates.

FBTB Live Streaming LEGO Dimensions – SAT @ 8:30 PM CST

Watch live video from fb2b on

The new year of LEGO Dimensions has hit shelves (well, some of them… I had to ask the clerk at Best Buy to find them for me), and that means that there’s a whole lot of game playing to be had. We’re going to try something new along with this, mostly at my expense, and start live streaming our playthrough of the game. Part of this will also be covering the individual Fun Packs, Character Packs, and Level Packs as we get to them.

To that end, our first live stream of me showing exactly how bad I am at the LEGO games, making a (bigger) fool of myself, and generally enjoying the banter of the characters while I occasionally talk into a headset mic will be on Saturday, October 1st at 8:30 PM CST. Feel free to check out the stream, hop into the chat on Twtich, or just join along.

I’ve embedded the link above. After the stream, we’re going to work on archiving the streams and potentially using bits of it in other content. So if you can’t make the initial stream, it should be available after the fact as well.
