Modular Western Town Update

A couple of weeks ago, I posted of the LEGO CUUSOO Modular Western Town project. At that time, the project had 2,484 supporters. Now, that number has risen to 4,703. Slowly but surely the number is rising, but we need to keep the supporters coming. So if you haven't supported yet, get over there and support.
Also, you can help by spreading the word of this project.

LEGO LOTR Unwatermarked Box Art

The first unwatermarked images of the LEGO The Lord Of The Rings box art are now released. So without further ado...

You just gotta love the new horses. And the minifigs are superb!

LEGO Super Heroes Now Available at TRU

Yep! The new Marvel Super Heroes sets are available at Toysrus. The prices have been raised, but they aren't that bad considering what the Star Wars sets are marked up to.

LEGO Mini-figures Series 7 Now at Target

Yep! Series 7 of the LEGO Mini-figures is now available at select Target stores. I have yet to confirm this though. 
This is odd as it isn't time for the release. But I don't have a problem with that.

21012 Sydney Opera House

LEGO has revealed the next Architecture set: The Sydney Opera House.
270 Pieces.
39.99 USD/ 49.99 CAN

Looks like another set for the history books. Too bad this theme has been so overpriced.

Leodsham Manor: Aquiring Champions by Luke Watkins

There are few things greater than castle MOCs. The brick and roof techniques are many times unbelievable. And this MOC by Luke Watkins is absolutely perfect.

See it on Mocpages.

LEGO 21102 Minecraft

A while ago, an idea for LEGO Minecraft was submited to LEGO CUUSOO. The project easily reached the 10,000 supporters needed and the set was declared in production.

Now, LEGO has finished the set, and they have thrilled fans all over the globe with the official photo of the upcoming LEGO Minecraft set.

I have no idea where this will be available as the last two LEGO CUUSOO sets were not available in the US.

NY ToyFair Coverage by FBTB

The New York Toy Fair was last weekend. If you were unable to make it (Like me), you can view coverage of the LEGO section of the event on the FBTB Flickr page Here.

The coverage includes photos of Monster Fighter, Lord Of The Rings, Star Wars, Marvel Super Heroes, and many more.
Keep in mind that most of the Avengers Mini-figs and box art is not official.

Also worth noting, the LEGO Group resigned a ten year contract with Star Wars. So you can expect at least ten more years of this great theme.

New LEGO Star Wars Gungan Sub

Hmm. A rather annoying amount of studs here. Looks very similar to the old one (Below).
I'm wondering why Jar-jar has a harpoon gun in his hand. Sorry Jar-jar, it might take something a little bigger than a harpoon to kill the Sando-aqua monster.
