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.

June LEGO exclusive Fig Promo
Unlike That Marvel Fig from last month this one really is exclusive, so if you want it’ it’s a buy now, or pay some crazy price for it later.
Begining today, LEGO is giving away the Iron Man vs Fighting Drone Set pictured below with any purchase over $50 when you shop online or instore.
Normally I love LEGO fig giveaway with purchase, they have a tenancy to increase dramatically in value, but this one Does not look like it will go that route. Closer inspection reveals that this is the same Iron Man fig that you get as part of Set #6867 Loki’s Cosmic Cube Escape
So it’s a rather bland giveaway, and If your an Iron man collector, you likely already have this version of Iron man. If you don’t and you still want it, or you’re a Poly bag collector this might be the time to buy. otherwise this set is a pass.
Purchasing from Amazon, or LEGO.com through the links below helps keep ULUG running.
