The last of the four LEGO The Hobbit The Battle of The Five Armies sets that’s just been released at Toys R Us stores in the past few days is none other than, well… the LEGO The Battle of Five Armies 79017 set! This is the second-biggest of the fall 2014 LEGO Hobbit sets, and comes with more minifigures than any other LEGO The Hobbit set this year!

LEGO Hobbit Attack on Lake-Town 79016 Released & Photos!

LEGO The Hobbit Attack on Lake-Town 79016 Box Front

Now that LEGO has begun shipping to the LEGO The Hobbit The Battle of the Five Armies sets to stores (which, in turn, are now selling the sets), there’s nothing stopping us from finally discussing this late 2014 LEGO Hobbit sets!

Next up is the LEGO Attack on Lake-Town 79016 set, which is the second-smallest of the sets in this wave. While the minifigure selection that comes with LEGO 79016 is a little bit bland, I think long-time LEGO The Hobbit collectors are going to have a blast pairing this set off with last year’s portion of Lake-Town…

LEGO 79015 The Witch-King Battle LEGO 2015 The Hobbit Set

Remember that stuff I said yesterday about how I was highly dubious that the three previously-unseen LEGO The Hobbit 2014 winter sets would be released before November 2014…? Yeah–scratch that. As it turns out–and to the shock of LEGO collectors everywhere–all four LEGO The Hobbit 2014 sets have now suddenly been released at various Toys R Us stores in the United States! Now that they’re actually in stores and being sold, we can finally take a look at the new LEGO Hobbit sets–starting with the LEGO Witch-King Battle 79015!

LEGO Hobbit The Lonely Mountain 79018 Photos! Smaug Dragon!

LEGO The Hobbit The Lonely Mountain 79018 Box

The past two years, LEGO released the Hobbit sets just in time for holiday shoppers to rush out and buy them! But this year, LEGO is doing things a little bit differently. While I don’t expect that we’ll see all four of the LEGO Hobbit 2014 sets released at once, at least one of the sets coming our way is going to be out in just over one month’s time! Scheduled for release on October 15th, 2014–it’s the LEGO The Lonely Mountain 79018 set… with LEGO Smaug Dragon!

LEGO Halloween Pumpkin 40055 Set Polybag Reissued!

LEGO 40055 Halloween Pumpkin Jack O' Lantern Polybag Set

Ever have one of those days where several people have let you know about a LEGO set you haven’t heard of before, you then drive around for three hours fruitlessly searching for it, end up ordering said LEGO set online, and then have the realization that it’s a set from last year and you already own it…? That’s pretty much my day today in a nutshell, as I went on an epic failed quest to find the newly reissued LEGO Halloween Pumpkin 40055 set that was originally released in 2013!

LEGO Batman Batwing 30301 Polybag Set Released in Stores!

LEGO Batwing 30301 Polybag Set

Last night I chatted up a storm about the newly-reissued LEGO Arctic Scout 30310 polybag set that’s just started to hit stores again this past week. But of course, that’s not the only LEGO polybag making the rounds in the build-up to Halloween–and it’s definitely not going to be the most popular one! Though it’s also been briefly available before, the LEGO set arriving in stores now to accompany the LEGO 30310 Arctic Scout is going to be a hot one–the LEGO Batman Batwing 30301 polybag is now flying back onto shelves!

LEGO Arctic Scout 30310 Polybag Set Re-Released in Stores!

LEGO Arctic Scout 30310 Set Polybag Released

I’m pretty open about the fact that I love the LEGO Arctic sets (not to mention the color orange), so I don’t think anyone will gasp at my admission that I’ve been buying all the 2014 LEGO Arctic sets. I’m holding off reviewing them until I get snow to take the review photos in (thank god I don’t need to take any more photos at the beach), but there’s at least one set that won’t be around in stores long enough for that. It was previously released in stores and sold out quickly, but a new shipment of LEGO Arctic Scout 30310 polybag sets has just arrived in Target stores!

Bricktober 2014 LEGO Exclusive Mini Modular Sets Revealed!

Bricktober 2014 LEGO Mini Modular Buildings Exclusives Promo Sets

Earlier this week, the October 2014 LEGO Stores Calendar was posted, which made it very clear exactly where all of us will be spending all of our money in October 2014: the LEGO Store. After all, nothing could be nearly as enticing as Double LEGO VIP Rewards points and the LEGO 2014 Holiday Promo set, right? Or so I thought. Toys R Us is taking aim at our wallets as well in October 2014, and to my surprise, they really are going to claim whatever money I have left over! The Toys R Us Bricktober 2014 LEGO exclusive Mini Modular Building sets have now been revealed!

Fall 2014 LEGO Minecraft Sets List & Photos! Ender Dragon!

LEGO Minecraft The First Night 21115 Box 2014 Set

Ever get the feeling that you’ve forgotten something? For me, that “something” is apparently forgetting to hit the “Publish” button, because I’ve had this article prepped and waiting to be posted since this weekend. But that’s okay, because “waiting” is related to the topic at-hand! LEGO Minecraft fans have had to wait a long time to get standard LEGO minifigure scale LEGO Minecraft sets, but their day in the sun is finally almost here! In November 2014, the LEGO Minecraft Minifigure scaled sets are scheduled to officially hit stores, and now we’ve gotten our first glance at the entire first wave!

LEGO Star Wars Mos Eisley Cantina Review & Photos 75052

LEGO Star Wars Mos Eisley Cantina 75052 Review

I don’t like sand. It’s coarse and irritating and it gets everywhere. That’s what Anakin Skywalker says, and I fully agree with him. Even so, sometimes it’s necessary for me to go and play on the beach and get myself (and all my stuff) covered in sand for the good of this blog. This is one of those times. While it’s been over a month since I got my discounted LEGO Star Wars Summer 2014 Mos Eisley Cantina set online, I had my first opportunity this week to go out and take review photos of the set the only place they should be taken–in the sand! Was the LEGO Star Wars Mos Eisley Cantina 75052 worth getting attacked by seagulls for? Read on…

Free LEGO White Spaceman Minifigure Promo LEGO Stores 2014

LEGO Space is still a much-beloved and popular classic LEGO theme, despite the fact that new LEGO Space sets haven’t been produced in years. Even so, the classic LEGO Spaceman minifigure craze is having a resurgence like never before, largely due to the appearance of Benny the 1980′s-something Spaceman in The LEGO Movie. Not only do the first green LEGO Spaceman minifigures ever appear in the awesome quickly sold-out LEGO Exo-Suit set, but now we have the opportunity to get our hands on a new run of the white LEGO Spaceman minifigures–for free!

October 2014 LEGO Store Calendar

It’s the last day of the month, one of the days that I get most excited about each and every month! Why? Because the final day of each month is (usually) when LEGO lets us peek into their crystal ball and see the LEGO Store calendar for the month that we’re a month and a day away from!

Today is no different, as we’re being gifted with our first look at the LEGO Store October 2014 Calendar. And while there’s only one LEGO free promo set in October 2014, it’s a doozy! Plus: the long-awaited return of LEGO Double VIP Points!
