Time for a brief roundup of LEGO news, releases, and happenings.
Iron Man 3 LEGO sets are now out in the wild! Found by Toyark member Noizemaze at the LEGO Discovery Center in Schaumburg, Illinois. Three sets were available for sale but I will avoid mentioning them by name in case of possible spoilers. Also there is potential spoiler content in the images on the boxes so be cautious if that is something you are sensitive to! There is a quick camera phone pic here that shows off all of the sets that were on sale, but be careful with potential spoiler content anyways…Don’t say I didn’t warn you!
Also found out in the wild (both at the LEGO Discovery Center and elswehere) are the Star Wars LEGO Series 3 Planet sets. The series contains the following sets: Jedi Starfighter & Kamino, Republic Assault Ship & Coruscant, TIE Bomber & Asteroid Field.
Also wanted to drop a quick reminder that the LEGO Palace Cinema set is now available to purchase exclusively for LEGO VIP members until March 1st! After March 1st the set becomes available to all, but VIP members will get the first crack at it online and in store until that time. When VIP members decide to order the Cinema online during this promotional period they will also get free shipping! Just head to LEGO Shop @ Home and log in with your VIP membership to get started!
Finally The LEGO Group is expected to release it’s annual results for 2012 on February 21st. As such there has been a collection of video clips made available that contains B-roll assets to be used for reporting purposes. Some of this B-roll shows off various locations at the Billund, Denmark headquarters including some peaks into the designers department, and an interesting video showcasing some LEGO history. You can find all of the videos by clicking here.
