That LEGO Back to the Future Set is Totally Happening You Guys

Posted 7 years ago by Toys


As if it wasn’t hard enough to find the LEGO Minecraft set that was released through their Kickstarter-like CUUSOO site, LEGO has just announced the next project that’s getting the really-for-real treatment is this awesome Back to the Future Delorean.

It’ll probably take forever for this to come out, but you know they’re going to sell out like crazy. I was really hoping they would make the Modular Western Town, but apparently they have a new Western theme of their own brewing and they felt it would conflict.

What do you think, will you be picking this one up?


LEGO Shellraiser Street Chase Available on Amazon Prime

Posted 7 years ago by Toys


Reports have been coming in about the TMNT LEGO sets popping up in Toys R Us stores, but I haven’t seen any yet. Luckily, Amazon is starting to get them in stock. Right now, the Shellraiser Street Chase set is available directly from Amazon for $60. That’s good news for Prime members, the box of bricks could be at your house as early as tomorrow.

If my wife read the site I would hint heavily that this is my favorite of the TMNT LEGO sets and that it would be a perfect Christmas gift. Sigh.

LEGO TMNT Sets Available on December 17th

Kraang Lab Escape

Well, it looks like Christmas is coming early this year. The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle LEGO sets we’ve been drooling over for the past few months are going to be available on LEGO’s Shop@Home site starting on December 17th. That doesn’t leave much time to get them to your door before Christmas, but LEGO’s fastest (and expensive) shipping option might do the trick.

I’ve got some nephews who would be insanely pumped if they got some of the TMNT LEGO sets I’ve been telling them about in time for the holidays. I don’t blame them, so would I!

The pages are already up on LEGO’s site. Here are links, along with prices and which Turtles come in each set.

I plan on getting all of these sets, but if you’re just looking to snag the four Turtles, it looks like your cheapest bet is go get the Turtle Lair Attack, Shredder’s Dragon Bike, and Kraang Lab Escape sets for a total of about $88.

So, are you planning on getting any of these sets?


LEGO News Roundup: New City Sets, Minifigures Series 9, and More

LEGO Helicopter Arrest

There has been a ton of LEGO awesomeness popping up in my RSS feeds lately, so I decided it was time for a LEGO News Roundup. LEGO is teasing a lot of great looking new products for next year, and even with TMNT LEGO sets coming out I’m most excited about the new City sets. The City line will always be my favorite, and some of the new sets look great.

I love the Helicopter Arrest set. It looks like an abandoned dock hideout with a place to stash a boat, boarded up windows, and a pretty snazzy orange truck. It almost reminds me of the Gator Landing set I use to have back in the day, just minus the gators.

Well folks, Turtle mania is in full swing now because there will be Happy Meal toys next month. You geeks with kids have it easy, how am I going to justify buying Happy Meals for a month straight?

A very cool Kickstarter for an amazing rubber band shotgun. If I had anything other than pets to terrorize with this, I'd get one for sure.
