The LEGO Millennium Falcon was officially announced

The last day of August marks the Day LEGO announced the biggest and most expensive LEGO set until date. It celebrates the 40 years of the first Star Wars movie and the 10 Years of the first Millennium Falcon UCS.

It’s a monster! 8” (21cm) high, 33” (84cm) long and 22” (56cm) wide with a total of 7541 pieces and the cost of 799,00 €/$799.99/£649.99.

Instead of describing all the features, I’ll let the LEGO experts explain all of them in this short video made to show off this amazing set.

It will be available on 1 October 2017. I believe most LEGO fans can’t wait to get their hands on this magnificent set (at least I can’t)!

But i’m sure that most of them are thinking the same: “Where the hell will I put it!”. I have the same problem! Enjoy!

LEGO Ideas Third Review of 2016 Results

On August 3, 3 days ago, LEGO Ideas team revealed the results of the 3rd Review of 2016. At the time we bet on 3 possible winners:

  • Boat Repair Shop
  • Volkswagen Golf MK1 GTI
  • Ship In A Bottle

And the winner was in fact one of above. The winner was:

Ship In A Bottle, The Flagship Leviathan. (by JakeSadovich77)

LEGO-Ideas-2016-Third-Review-Ship-In-a-Bottle

Is in fact a awesome, fresh and innovative LEGO build, different from everything LEGO has on its official collection. So I think the winner was well chosen.

Lego also revealed an excellent news. From the 2nd LEGO Review of 2016, there was a set that LEGO didn’t decided if it was released or not. That set was the Incredible Voltron: The Legendary Defender.

Glad to announce that the set WILL BE A REALITY. LEGO resolved the legal problems and Voltron will be added to the incredible list of LEGO Ideas sets.

LEGO of course is still working on the final design and prices. But both of the above sets will only it the shelves in 2018.

Lego Mystery Set

Lego just teased on twitter a set 4.86 times bigger than the London bus.

This means that this new set has about 8193 pieces!!! Can it be the new Millennium Falcon? Most of the web thinks so!

It would make sense, because there were rumour that the expected price of this new Millennium Falcon would be around $700. so $700 for 8193 would elevate this set to the biggest and most expensive set yet!!!!

Can wait to find out!

Algobrix | The Ultimate Coding Learning Game

Have you ever thought of joining the joy of building LEGO with the joy of coding? Now you can pass it to your kids with a bright idea called Algobrix.

According to its creators:

Algobrix teaches kids how to code by guiding them through the steps of programming a robot’s movements. But instead of scripts to write, they have blocks to arrange, in a tangible way that’s true to real coding.

It’s the awesomeness of robots, the lasting fun of building blocks, and the problem solving of 3D puzzles. It’s Algobrix.

A picture is worth a thousand words, so here is the presentation video:

This is currently a kickstarter project and you can find more information and back it here.

At the time of this post, they already have been funded with 529 backers and more than $140000 (the pledge was for $50000).

I you liked the idea, follow the link and back this awesome project.

And here are the next giveaways:

The rumours say it is going to be given in the force friday in September.

/40177 LEGO City Jungle Polybag

A new polybag featuring the new LEGO City jungle line.

5004394 LEGO Ninjago Movie Polybag

This does not look like a norma polybag. It seems to be a scenario so you can take pictures of Ninjago Characters like they were in the movie.

5004914 LEGO Nexo Knights Armor Pod

LEGO is really into the Pod business now. This is one more example of that.

5004915 LEGO Ninjago-Movie-Wu-Key-Chain

One more promo from the Ninjago movie. This time featuring Marter Wu in a keychain.

5004916 LEGO Ninjago Movie Kai’s Dojo Pod

One more Pod this time for the Ninjago Movie. It features Kai with a lot of weapons.

5004920 LEGO Friends Ski Pod

The last Pod in this list. This time a LEGO Friends one.

5004934 LEGO Seasonal Christmas Ornament

This is probably one of the Christmas giveaway. An ornament for your christmas tree

LEGO Catalog for the 2nd Half of 2017

The new Catalog is now available online from the official LEGO catalog website.

This is basically the confirmation of most of the rumours of the latest months. An there a some noticeable news.

  • APPS: A digital catalog that can be downloaded in the apps store where you can see all the sets in 3D
  • LEGO HOUSE: An advertisement to the new LEGO House that will open on the 28th of September in Billund, Denmark.
  • LEGO CITY: The new LEGO CITY Coast Guard collection featuring a lot of new boats and ships. Awesome for improving your city.
  • LEGO CITY: For the ones that like adventures, the new LEGO City Jungle sets are amazing. A lot of new vehicles and an exploration site.
  • MARVEL: 2 new Spiderman Homecoming and 2 new Thor Ragnarok sets. The new Hulk is really amazing.
  • DC: On the DC side, 2 new Justice league sets.
  • DC: Also Batman the Movie has 5 new sets. It seems LEGO is still betting on their latest animation with 15 sets on the catalog (a total of 60 minfigures and 2 bigfigures)
  • NEXUS: Although there were rumours saying that the Nexus line was going to be discontinued, LEGO is going to release 5 new sets, having a total of 10 sets.
  • NINJAGO MOVIE: A total of 10 new sets are going to be release. Special mention to the 70618 Destiny’s Bounty, a really cool Chinese boatwith all Ninjago’s ninja Team.
  • NINJAGO: From the common Ninjago line, there will be 13 new sets, but none is new.
  • STAR WARS: My favorite theme has, as usual, new sets, 8 to be exact. From the new sets, the most appealing is the 75183, the Darth Vader Transformation. Although I already all the minifigures, is a good opportunity to the ones that are searching for good versions of Palpatine and Darth Vader. The Battle damaged Vader is also looking pretty cool. The 75167, the Bounty Hunter’s Speed Bije is also an awesome addition to the ones that collect minifigures. Nice opportunity to have 4 new legendary Bounty Hunters.
  • STAR WARS: Is still the line with most sets. 35 sets with a total of 145 minifigures!!! I’m not counting with the ones of the UCS sets that don’t appear on the catalog.
  • STAR WARS: In the field of Buildable Figures, Star Wars has 2 new ones: The Storm Trooper Commander and the Scout Trooper Speeder bike (the first buildable figure with a vehicle).
  • TECHNIC: There are also 3 new Technic sets on the catalog. Special mention to the 6×6 All Terrain Tow Truck with 63 cms wide. It’s also a 2 in 1 which mean that it has an alternative build.

Just click the image below to access the new Catalog. Enjoy!
