Entertainment Weekly Reveals First LEGO San Diego Comic Con Exclusive: Hail Hydra Captain America

We finally get our first peek at this year’s San Diego Comic Con exclusive minifigures, and it is none other than the Hydra-loving Captain America. That’s right. If you haven’t picked up the new Captain America: Steve Rogers comic book, at the end, spoiler alert, he pledges his allegiance to the faction he’s been fighting against for a number of years. Now, that version of Captain America is immortalized in ABS plastic and can be yours if you’re lucky enough to get one. Like last year, the drawing will be held upstairs in the Sails Pavilion at 12:30 every day, with a new minifigure every day.

Amazon Prime Day Offers Discounts On Three Sets


Today is Prime Day and there are exactly three LEGO sets that will see a discount. Three. Yay. The trick, though, is that we have no idea what those discounts are until they come up at their allotted time. Still, you can probably set an alarm or two on your phone to remind yourself of the deal if you’re so inclined

First up is LEGO Star Wars Ultimate Collector Series 75095 TIE Fighter. If you missed the Walmart deal from last week, this may be your second chance. Again, there’s no indication what the actual sale price will be but you can check back at 8:04am to find out. This set normally retails for $199.99. This is by far the best LEGO item offered for Prime Day.

Next is LEGO Education DUPLO 4517242 Early Simple Machines III. This set normally retails for $144.95. You can check back on this deal at 9:04am.

Next is a LEGO CITY set, 60069 Swamp Police Station. This set’s MSRP is $89.99, but is currently on sale for $65.44. Hopefully, the Prime Day deal price will be better than the current 27% discount. This deal goes live at 10:04am.

And lastly, LEGO DUPLO Disney 10594 Sofia’s Royal Stable is the final item on this list. Its MSRP is $24.99 but like the CITY set, it too is also on sale with a 33% discount. It’s anyone’s guess what the sale price will be. The sale price will be revealed at 11:05am.

I’m pretty sure that all times are Pacific Daylight Time. If the direct links don’t work, you may need to load up this page to get the deal. And even if you don’t find the LEGO deals enticing, please consider clicking through the image link above and help support our site for the deals you do find enticing.

Good luck and thank you!

LEGO Announces 71040 The Disney Castle


Following up on the massive leak over the weekend, The LEGO Group sent over the official assets for their next D2C set, 71040 The Disney Castle. When I first saw the images, I mistakenly assumed the set was going to be called “Cinderella’s Castle” then became puzzled when I saw the minifig selection since it didn’t include Cinderella. But it all makes sense now that I know it’s called “The Disney Castle”. The Disney Castle set comes with five minifigs: Donald, Daisy, Minnie, Mickey, and Tinkerbell, all of which are new except Donald. He looks to be exactly the same as the one released with the CMF series.

The castle is chock full of Disney details and is sure to please any Disney fan, young or old, assuming they have the funds to get it. The set will go on sale on September 1, 2016 for the whopping price of $349.99 USD. Look for VIP Eary Bird Access in mid-August.

Clones Wars Collection Seasons 1-5 Blu-ray For $44 From Amazon UK

Like the Clone Wars? Amazon UK is offering the complete Clone Wars collection on Blu-ray for just $44 shipped. This is a region-free set which will work with any Blu-ray player. The current price for the collection is listed at £34.99, which drops down to £29.16 after you sign in, proceed through checkout, and select a U.S. based address. Select Standard Shipping for an additional £3.08, and your final price is £32.24, which converts to just $43.46 USD. This price is about 33% cheaper than the same set offered from Amazon Marketplace at $65.48. Unfortunately, the box set does not include “The Lost Missions”, the 13 episodes that were completed prior to Disney killing off the series after the purchase of Lucasfilm. To complete your collection, Amazon US has The Lost Missions available for $24.96.

Walmart Discounts UCS TIE Fighter by 30%, Now $139.99


Walmart put a huge discount discount on 75095 TIE Fighter set. It is sitting pretty at $139.99. That’s a whopping 30% discount off of the MSRP of $199.99. You get free shipping or free store pick-up to boot.

Amazon usually price matches, but their listing still shows the regular price as of this writing.

This iconic ship received a coveted 5-star rating by Nick last year in his review. Having built mine recently, I must agree. It is quite a spectacular piece and better than the (now discontinued) UCS Red 5 X-wing Fighter.

Thanks go to Mos Eisley for the tip.

LEGO [email protected] Update: Lower Free Shipping Minimum, Bonus Points, Ecto-1 & 2 Now Available,

There are a couple of LEGO [email protected] updates you should know about.

First up is that they are now offering free shipping with a lower purchase threshold: just $35 dollars! And that’s in both US and CA dollars! That should make shopping there a little more convenient.

Next up is a bonus offer of 500 VIP points. All you need to do is purchase 70751 Temple of Airjitzu to get those points. The temple costs $199.99, so getting another 500 points on top is even better than getting it on a Double VIP points day and who knows when the next time that’s going to happen. 500 points translates to $35 on a future shopping trip. You’ll need to be a VIP member to get those points, natch.

And finally, in terms of new sets for sale, LEGO Ghostbusters 75828 Ecto-1 & 2 ($59.99) and LEGO Creator 10253 Big Ben ($249.99) are both for sale. The new Ecto-1 features an improved design over the LEGO Ideas set in that the interior has room to seat four minifigs. Amazon has the Ecto-1 & 2 for sale at the same price as well.

If you’re wanting the Ecto-1 with the original cast from the ’80s movie, that set is still available: LEGO Ideas 21108 Ghostbusters Ecto-1.

LEGO Dimensions Sonic Minifigure Revealed

This is kind of a bad angle but it’s best it’s gonna get. The above picture was shared by Mark Warburton of TT Games and posted on NintendoLife. Sonic was revealed as a Dimensions license in the E3 reveal video at the very end, snatching The One Ring away from Gollum. Despite using The One Ring element in the video, here he has the life preserver element as his accessory. This may still be a prototype and the final version may differ. He is not part of the wave 1 assortment so this is a very early look at one of the future waves in the second year of Dimensions.

You can pre-order all of first wave of the second year of LEGO Dimensions from Amazon right now.

New Marvel Mighty Micros Revealed, Thanos Debuts

iron man vs thanos

Yahoo News posted images of the new Mighty Micros sets for Marvel Super Heroes. Of note, this marks the debut of Thanos as a non bigfig figure despite its short legs. Spider-Man gets a second set with Scorpion as his enemy this time; I guess they just throw arachnids at each other for weapons. And I’m pretty sure that’s a new helmet element for Iron Man.

Like the DC sets revealed in our last post, these will be previewed at San Diego Comic Con but won’t be available for purchase until the January 2017 wave is for sale.
