LEGO 71012 COLLECTIBLE MINIFIGURE DISNEY SERIES BOX DISTRIBUTION
You have by now heard the news, and if not, well you must be a Warner Brothers Fan, so good riddance. And if you are a Disney fan but haven’t heard the news, LEGO and Disney are realizing a series of minifigures.
Are you done hyperventilating yet? good. Now on to the important things….
May 3nd. Thats your date. Yes, I know its really the first but you don’t really want to be out there with everyone else, so do us all a favor and wait till the 3rd.
And here’s the good news: each box has 3 sets, plus a few extras to give to your friends (you know those LEGO guys next door).
Ferrari F40 LM
What welcome news, Just last night, I was talking with one of the young men in the neighborhood about sports cars, and lamented that I would never own one. They are too pricey, and even more outside of the budget of an AFOL who spends all that extra cash on LEGO. Lego however has come to my rescue. announcing the release of the Ferrari F40 Lego Super Car.
Every gear head knows the F40, The last Ferrari produced under the direction of Enzo Farrari, it celebrated the 40th Anniversary of Ferrari. Manufactured from 1987 to 1992, demand soared, and 1,315 were built instead of the planned 450. Of these, 2 were produced in Black, and less than 10 in yellow, a few in white, and the rest in that classic red hue replicated here.
It’s hard to judge the fidelity of the set without actually having either to compare with, but they did get the color right I dare say. Then there are the other details, a little too numerous to detail here, but the gallery makes for nice browsing, and drooling.
There is a brick ton of LEGO new coming out of the New York Toy Fair today. The Buildable Star Wards figures are just the latest.
I have never had a desire to buy the Bionicle, or Hero Factory LEGO sets, I was even able to resist their DC and Marvel figures when those were introduced, but these. It’s gonna be rough. An I know the kids will want them. On the plus side, look at those light sabers. There will be lots of severed LEGO arms in the house this year.
Close on the heals of the Helicarrier reveal, LEGO today unveiled the LEGO Star Wars Ultimate Collector Series (UCS) Tie Fighter, and oh what a beauty.
Recommended for ages 14+, it weighs in at a relatively small (by UCS standards) 1,685 pieces, and will set you back US$ 199.99 which just happens to be relatively affordable (by UCS standards)
