September 2015 LEGO Store Calendar! Free Promos & Events

September 2015 LEGO Store Calendar

Seeing as how September 4th is going to be Star Wars Force Friday–perhaps the biggest day for Star Wars collectible reveals ever–I half-expected the September 2015 LEGO Store Calendar to be totally Star Wars themed.

But nope! It’s an eclectic calendar with an emphasis on Ninjago Airjitzu, a free poster for a much-maligned prequel film, and a free promo set featuring everyone’s favorite vehicle to go cruising on: a tractor!

LEGO Batman Jokerland 76035 Set Review & Photos

LEGO Clown Head from LEGO Batman Jokerland Summer 2015 Set

If you follow the Bricks and Bloks Facebook Page (and if you don’t–shame on you), you’ve probably noticed that I’ve been posting photos and teasing a review of a certain highly-anticipated set for the past week.

While the LEGO Jokerland 76035 Summer 2015 set won’t officially release in the United States until next week, my favorite fellow collector Dave M. tracked one down that snuck out early at Toys R Us! And after a monumental amount of prodding and harassment, I finally convinced Dave to compose a full LEGO Jokerland review and photo gallery…

LEGO Carnage’s SHIELD Sky Attack Review & Photos! 76036

LEGO Carnage SHIELD Sky Attack Review

For the most part, the 2015 LEGO Marvel sets are being dominated by sets themed around this year’s Marvel Cinematic Universe movies (Avengers: Age of Ultron and Ant-Man). But there are a few goodies for non-movie fans as part of the LEGO Marvel Summer 2015 sets wave, and one of them is the subject of today’s review: it’s the LEGO Carnage’s SHIELD Sky Attack 76036 set!

LEGO Classic Pirates 5003082 Free Promo Set Photos!

LEGO-Classic-Pirates-Set-Box-Promo-August-2015

Why hello there! It’s been a while, right? Although our new home still has no internet (I’m writing this post from my phone–seriously), it’s thankfully been a very slow couple of weeks for LEGO news, so I haven’t missed out on covering too much. But something finally popped up today that I definitely wanted to talk about. We’ve known about a certain promo since last winter, but hi-res photos of what’s sure to be one of the most popular free promos of 2015 have now appeared: it’s the LEGO Classic Pirates 5003082 set coming free to LEGO Stores in August 2015!

August 2015 LEGO Store Calendar: Free Promos & Events!

August 2015 LEGO Store Calendar

For the last couple months, the LEGO has been just a wee bit late posting the next month’s LEGO Store calendar. But just when I think I’ve got a handle on it, LEGO goes and pulls the rug out from under me again!

With over half a week left until July, the August 2015 LEGO Store Calendar of deals, free promos and events has now been revealed!

LEGO Ferrari F40 10248 Set Revealed + Photos & Video!

LEGO Ferrari F40 10248 Box Front

As I’ve mentioned a few times in the past, I’m not exactly what you would call “a car guy”. So when LEGO made their huge June 2015 set announcement and press release this week, I was like “A red car. Hunh.” But as it turns out, plenty of readers are excited about this set and asking me about it, so let’s chat about the LEGO Creator Ferrari F40 10248 set coming our way in just a few short weeks!

SDCC 2015 LEGO Arsenal Minifigure Exclusive! Red Arrow!

SDCC 2015 LEGO Arsenal Minifigure Exclusive

If LEGO is really looking to create a stir and earn the hatred of a lot of hardcore superhero fans with their lottery SDCC 2015 exclusives, they’re doing a good job.

First they announced the raffle-only SDCC LEGO Captain America Falcon Minifigure, and now they’ve announced the DC entry: from the beloved TV show “Arrow”, it’s the exclusive LEGO Arsenal Minifigure!

Exclusive SDCC 2015 LEGO DC Action Comics #1 Set!

SDCC 2015 LEGO Action Comics 1 Set with Superman Minifigure

Having been strongly underwhelmed by the first two San Diego Comic-Con 2015 LEGO sets being sold at the show–Throne of Ultron and Dagobah–I wasn’t expecting much from the third set revealed. But as it turns out, the third set really is the charm! While it may be overpriced, the SDCC 2015 exclusive LEGO DC Action Comics #1 Superman set recreating Superman’s first appearance is definitely a fun and inspired choice for a comic book convention exclusive!

SDCC 2015 Exclusive LEGO Star Wars Dagobah Set!

SDCC 2015 Exclusive LEGO Star Wars Dagobah Set

Ordinarily, I want every single kit that LEGO announced to be a riveting entry and the best it can be. But due to the fact that the San Diego Comic-Con LEGO exclusive sets and minifigures tend to be ridiculously priced and/or impossible to get on the aftermarket, I breathe a little sigh of relief whenever a new exclusive is announced that I don’t want. The limited-edition Sam Wilson Captain America minifigure being raffled at the show certainly doesn’t fall into that category, but the other recently-announced SDCC 2015 exclusive LEGO Dagobah set definitely does underwhelm…

SDCC 2015 LEGO All-New Captain America Minifigure!

SDCC 2015 LEGO All-New Captain America Minifigure Falcon Sam Wilson

The moment of truth that most LEGO collectors dread each year has arrived: the San Diego Comic-Con 2015 exclusive LEGO Minifigures are now beginning to be announced! As usual, only a few hundred of each minifigure will be available at SDCC 2015, and you can only win them through a “random” lottery drawing. I was pleased when the Collector (an obscure, mostly unpopular character) was last year’s Marvel exclusive, but LEGO will not be making any friends this year with the SDCC 2015 Exclusive LEGO All-New Captain America Minifigure!

LEGO Wall-E Set Revealed & Photos! LEGO 21303!

LEGO Wall-E 21303 Set Box

Way back in February 2015 (before Jurassic World opened and dinosaurs began roaming the Earth), LEGO hit us up with the surprise announcement that the LEGO Ideas Wall-E set had been approved and would be coming our way in late 2015!

Well, it’s over a third of a year later, but we’ve finally gotten our first official looks at the upcoming Disney-Pixar LEGO Wall-E 21303 set… and I have to say, it looks absolutely amazing!! This just may be the most authentic licensed LEGO set ever made!

CODE NUMBER LIST: Mega Bloks Minions Series 3 Codes!

Minions Mega Bloks Series 3 Blind Box Figures Packaging

While we wait for the LEGO Minifigures Series 14 blind bags to hit stores in late fall (and yes, this is the Halloween-themed minifigures set leaked in the winter), blind bag lovers may need something else to tide them over this summer. And coincidentally, one of my favorite movies has its own blind pack figures getting a new series this summer, and they’re starting to hit stores! And with the Mega Bloks Minions Series 3 code number list, you can pull the Minion you want every single time!!

LEGO Star Wars Force Awakens Stormtrooper Set Photo!

SDCC 2015 Exclusive LEGO First Order Stormtrooper Figure

We’ve known everything from the set numbers to the release date (September 4th, 2015) to the prices for the LEGO Star Wars Episode VII sets for ages, and even the names for the sets leaked out last week. There was really only one mystery left: when the sets would finally be revealed to the public. And the solution to that question now has an unsurprising answer: San Diego Comic-Con 2015 next month! But before we see the rest of the LEGO Star Wars Force Awakens sets at SDCC 2015, the first LEGO 2016 set has now been revealed: the LEGO First Order Stormtrooper figure!
