LEGO Pirates of the Caribbean sets Unveiled

February 1, 2011

Ever since Comic Con last year there’s been buzz about the Pirates of the Caribbean Sets.



So many new elements! Between the new bottles, hairstyles, and the new mermaid tails I just have to get these drool worthy sets!!!! This is only 4 of the 8 sets check out the gallery on MTV.com.

And if that’s not enough there’s a LEGO Pirates of the Caribbean Video Game coming out!!! Go to FBTB.net to see it as I can’t figure out how to post it here.

LEGO Star Wars 2010 Slave 1

February 16, 2010

One new set that is high on my list is the new 2010 LEGO Star Wars Slave 1

Now considering that I have all of the past versions of Slave 1 including the rather lame 2000 version and the Japan exclusive mini I don’t really need another Slave 1. But the color scheme along with the Minifigure assortment has pulled me back in.

Bossk, a newly designed Boba Fett, and my ultimate favorite an actual Han in Carbonite are the definate selling points to me. Ah heck, who am I kidding, its all about the Han in Carbonite. πŸ˜€

Instead of the really lame 1x2x5 brick with a printed on Han this set has a poor tortured Han locked forever in a plastic mold. And the greatest thing is that the normal Han fits inside his carbonite coffin, smirking all the while.

To be honest I’ve lost interest in Star Wars in general over the years. Clone Wars just can’t get my interest. I can hear the gasps from here.

This set just might be my return to long ago in a galaxy far, far away. . .

2010 LEGO Star Wars Clone Turbo Tank and Hoth Wompa Cave Sets

February 10, 2010

Wired.com brings us hi-res images of two of the newest 2010 LEGO Star Wars sets from New York’s Toy Fair.

8098 Clone Turbo Tank $120 USD

8089 Hoth Wampa Cave

I’m pretty happy with the Wampa, although it reminds me a lot of the Rock Raiders cave monster from years past. What is it with LEGO making monsters that have ridiculously long arms?

With the Wampa and the Taun-taun now a reality the only important Classic Star Wars animal that is missing is the Rancor. Yet another long-armed monster. πŸ˜€

On a totally unrelated note, there are finally clear images of two of the upcoming Disney Toy Story 3 sets now on Eurobricks.com

2010 LEGO Preview from the Canadian Toy & Hobby Fair

February 6, 2010

On Kris Able’s Tech Life blog he recently paid a visit to the Canadian Toy and Hobby Fair and due to the over whelming response of his readers last year was good enough to take pictures of every LEGO set on display. πŸ™‚

Included in the pictures was the first images of the Collectible Minifigures and their packaging.

He also mentioned something that I’ve heard rumors of but have yet to have seen any images of:

Not included are any sets from the upcoming Harry Potter release. LEGO didn’t have any mock-up boxes or prototype sets, but they will be releasing kits both for the Hogwarts Castle, the Hogwarts Express train, and other elements from that world.

From the rumors I’ve heard, there will be a LEGO Harry Potter line in conjunction with with the upcoming video game that will be released later this year.

There are lots more images on his blog including summer’s line of LEGO Atlantis and the new Duplo LEGO Disney Cars, so be sure to check it out. πŸ˜‰
