TMNT Mega Bloks Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Revealed!

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Mega Bloks Figures Revealed

MEGA Brands shocked the brick-collecting world at the New York Toy Fair 2015, when they quietly announced that they had acquired the license to produce Mega Bloks Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles construction sets and figures. Yes, that’s right, for one it is MEGA Brands who snatched a license away from LEGO and not the other way around! Crazy, right? Anyway, it’s been a long eight months since the stunning announcements, but at last the first image of the TMNT Mega Bloks figures has been revealed! Are you impressed, brick fans?

November 2015 LEGO Store Calendar Free Promos & Events

November 2015 LEGO Store Calendar

About a week and a half, TLG stunned the brick-collecting world by posting the November 2015 LEGO Store calendar way, way early. Because of this, we got our first look at the gorgeous second 2015 Holiday promo set a bit earlier: the Gingerbread House.

While I already posted an entire write-up of the LEGO Gingerbread House 40139 back then, it occurs to me now that I never talked about the LEGO Store November 2015 calendar itself! And so, let’s step back for a minute and see what TLG has lined up for us next month…

LEGO Dimensions Video Game First Impressions Review!

I have a confession to make: as slow as I am at building actual LEGO sets (it takes me well over 5 hours to build a 500 piece set), I’m orders of magnitude slower at playing through video games! How slow, you ask…? Well, let’s just say that I’ve still never completed the LEGO Marvel or Harry Potter Year 1-4 video games, much less opened LEGO Batman 3 or Dimensions. So even though I spent over $200 on LEGO Dimensions video game toys this week, I still had no clue how the game actually was.

Luckily, my dear friend Dave M. has been kind enough to step in and give me (and all of you!) his first impressions of the video game based off his first 8 hours of gameplay…

LEGO Dimensions Sets Released & Store Display Photos!

Toys R Us LEGO Dimensions Sets Released

After the calamity that occurred last year for kids and collectors trying to collect the first wave of Nintendo Amiibo figures, I was really afraid of huge shortages for the LEGO Dimensions launch.

And so, even though I ordered all my LEGO Dimensions sets online, I went to see how well-stocked (or not) my closest video game retailers were this morning. And as it turns out, the answer is “pretty well-stocked”!

LEGO Dimensions Toys Launch Tomorrow! Stores Displays!

LEGO Dimensions Toys Display Target

September 2015 has turned out to be a surprisingly busy (and expensive!) month for LEGO fans, with the Force Awakens Star Wars sets hitting stores along with a variety of holiday seasonal sets. And if you’re a gamer, things are about to get a whole lot more expensive!

Tomorrow is the official launch for the LEGO Dimensions toys and video game, so I headed out to stores today to see them setting up their displays…

LEGO Christmas Train 40138 Promo Set Hi-Res Photos!

LEGO 40138 Holiday Train Set Box

Just in case yesterday’s first glimpse at the LEGO Gingerbread House 40139 promo set wasn’t enough to get you salivating, the first hi-res images of the other LEGO 2015 Holiday Promo set began to roll into the station! After word of the 40138 Holiday Train leaked out at the end of 2014, we waited almost nine months to see the first image of the set on the October 2015 LEGO Store Calendar. And now, just three weeks away from the LEGO Holiday Train set being released, the official hi-res photos have been sent out! Was it worth the wait, brick fans?

LEGO Gingerbread House 40139 Holiday Promo Set!

LEGO Gingerbread House 40139

Not only do we have another trio of terrific Advent Calendars available, as well as the upcoming Holiday Train promo and a pair of just-announced Seasonal sets, but now we have confirmation of the second holiday promo set that’s been rumored since last year: the 40139 LEGO Gingerbread House set has now been revealed, and will be available for Brick Friday 2015!

LEGO Winter Village Toy Shop 10249 Revealed! Reissue?

2015 LEGO Winter Toy Shop 10249 Box

UPDATE: The LEGO Winter Toy Shop 10249 is now available for order online! Make sure you log into your VIP account so that you can see it in the shop!

ORIGINAL: Seeing as how I’ve written a LEGO news site for the past 4 years, it’s pretty obvious that I love LEGO. But every once in a while, despite that adoration, they do something that really irks me. And unfortunately, that time has come again. Anticipation has turned to massive disappointment, as the sole 2015 LEGO Winter Village set has been officially revealed to be… a near-identical refresh of the 10199 Winter Toy Shop from five years ago?!

LEGO Bricktober 2015 Sets Revealed! Mini Modular Buildings!

LEGO Bricktober Toys R Us Store 40144

Last year, Toys R Us started what I hoped was going to be a new tradition when they debuted the amazingly cool 2014 Bricktober Mini Modular Buildings as their weekly October holiday giveaway sets! From the Pizza Place to the Town Hall, last year’s October exclusive sets really broke the mold for what we could hope for for free promo sets. And today, it’s been revealed that the series is continuing–the 2015 LEGO Bricktober sets include a Bakery, Hotel, Train Station… and a brick-built Toys R Us store!!

October 2015 LEGO Store Calendar! Holiday Train Promo!

October 2015 LEGO Store Calendar Front

For whatever reason, it’s over a week into September 2015 and TLG still hasn’t posted the hi-res, front-and-back PDFs of the October 2015 LEGO Store Calendar. Crazy, right?

So what’s a guy to do, other than drive to the nearest LEGO Store and scan ridiculously hi-res images of the October 2015 calendar himself, right?

And thankfully, it’s worth the effort: next month is going to be a good one, with the awesome free LEGO Holiday Train promo and more!
