Last night at Comic-Con’s preview night, The latest LEGO CUUSOO set Back to the Future went on sale. Along with it came the official announcement posted on the CUUSOO site. If that’s not enough information for you. The brothers over at The Brother’s Brick got a preview copy to review. which is informative, and provides some otherwise unpublished published pictures.

I could take some time and type a whole raft of comments and notes about what I can see in the set, but instead I think I’d be better off limiting it to what I see as the major points and then letting you look through the pictures, and watch the Video for yourself.

Major Points

  • New Minifigures
  • Custom printed tiles for license plates and interior
  • It’s a Delorean
  • On sale now at Comic-Con, then world wide on August 1st

ComicConLogoSmall Once again, Comic Con is the event to attend for LEGO news. this time, Lego anounces via cnet That 2 new Minecraft sets are coming to market.

  • Measures 3″ by 3″ by 3″
  • A buildable villager
  • A buildable zombie
  • a buildable pig
  • Contains lots of earth tone colored bricks and plates

LEGO Minecraft - The Nether
Minecraft- the Nether

  • Can be split into 4 parts and reconfigured to add a simple method of personalization
  • Measures 3″ by 3″ by 3″
  • 2 buildable Ghast
  • A buildable Zombie Pigman
  • Lots of Dark Red, and Black tiles and plates

Lego has warned, that when the sets first appear in September, there will be a limited supply due to the expedited production and product launch timeline. SO both sets will probably experience the same shortages that were common with the first LEGO Minecraft set.

All that aside, the best part of this news is the possibility that other LEGO CUUSOO sets and themes could be expanded into multiple sets.

Back in December, LEGO Cuusoo, Lego’s Crowd sourcing platform, announced that the nest crowd idea to be made into a set would be the Back To The Future Delorean. And now, Brick News has the first images of the set form what appears to be an internal document. There are some unique pieces and Figures to collect.

The set is expected to be available July 18th, for a cost of £34.99 (sorry no word on the US pricing). Just like the last CUUSOO set Minecraft, we can expect this one to be hard to find in stores, being primarily available form LEGO stores, and online.
