This is thanks to the release of the LEGO Marvel set online 76285 Spider-Man Mask by LEGO Certified Australian Store that today we discover the LEGO-style interpretation of the character with 487 pieces and availability planned for January 1, 2024.
As it stands and seen from the angle proposed by the manufacturer, the 19 cm high construction seems more or less successful to me but we will have to wait to be able to observe it from all angles to check whether this impression, in principle based on the most flattering view of the object is confirmed.
The set is not yet online on the official store, it should be there quickly and we will then have confirmation of its public price which should be €69.99.
Today we take a very quick look at the contents of the LEGO Sonic the Hedgehog set. 76995 Shadow's Escape, a small box of 196 pieces which will be available from January 1, 2024 at the public price of €20.99.
And the guided tour will indeed be very quick as this little box is almost content to be a simple extension of the more global concept developed in the already very extensive Sonic the Hedgehog range : there is in fact not much to build and only one minifigure is provided.
We will note in passing that the inventory of this box is delivered in two “paper” bags, LEGO having recently recalled that the shift announced for a long time will eventually materialize in 2024 in Europe. I mention the word paper in quotation marks, the material being abundantly coated with plastic inside to prevent the pieces from tearing the packaging and we still find in these bags the usual small plastic packaging containing the smallest elements of the inventory.
LEGO promises an “infinity of stories” to invent with the contents of this product, however you will need to have a little imagination to get something out of it. Shadow can be imprisoned in the "cryogenic tank", he can escape, he can confront the Badnik Rhinobot in passing and then escape on his motorcycle. Why not, do it once before posting the thing in a corner to amortize the investment.
The motorcycle is very decent considering its limited inventory, Shadow can be installed in a seated position on the seat, this is not always the case with LEGO motorcycles, and can even really take hold of the roller-based handlebars paint. The machine is not unworthy, it is neat knowing that there are no stickers in this box and that the motorcycle therefore benefits from pad-printed elements.
The other construction of the set brings some functionality to the product with the possibility of ejecting the glass from the tank by pressing on the two-tone edge of the base so that Shadow sets sail. The barrier placed behind the tank is synchronized with the ejection mechanism of the canopy, Shadow can then smash it with his motorcycle. the bottom of the tank is furnished with a very successful pad-printed piece (see photo below).
The Rhinobot is correct even if it struggles a little to embody the creature with its shell and its central wheel seen on the screen in video games where the villain makes an appearance, it is missing at least one yellow band which crosses the shell of the evil robot. the Clucky provided is symbolic, the idea is there and the little figurine will do the trick even if the hen's crest would in my opinion have deserved a plastic excrescence instead of being satisfied with a simple printed pattern.
We cannot therefore say that the product is crazy playable and exceptionally creative and for €21 LEGO is clearly content with the bare minimum to encourage us to buy the new Shadow figurine delivered in this box.
The latter is rather well executed even if the white pad-printed area on the black background of the torso is too dull compared to the more "intense" white of the legs, which is a shame. The legs and arms benefit from particular care and these nicely pad-printed elements are successful.
For the head of the figurine, some will perhaps only see an interpretation that strays too far from the initial concept of the LEGO minifig, others will find that the mold is frankly successful, everyone has their own appreciation of the liberties taken by LEGO in this range to offer credible characters resembling their digital alter egos.
In short, this little additional pack which could possibly flesh out a diorama made up of a few boxes from the Sonic the Hedgehog range doesn't have much to offer but it only costs €21 and we all know here that the motivation will come from the presence of a new figurine that many fans of this universe were waiting for in a LEGO version.
That's already good, we learn not to be too demanding over time and to be satisfied with what we are offered if the price seems acceptable to us. In my opinion, this is the case here, the motorcycle saving the furniture in the process concerning the constructions provided.
Note: The product shown here, provided by LEGO, is as usual involved. Deadline fixed at 10th December 2023 next at 23:59 p.m. Simply post a comment below the article to participate. Your participation is taken into account regardless of your opinion. Avoid “I’m participating” or “I’m trying my luck”, we suspect that this is the case.
If you prefer to invest in complete boxes rather than in individual figurines, know that the Minifigure Maddness brand is offering a pre-order today on a set of two boxes of 36 sachets from the 25th series of collectible minifigs (ref. 71045). Knowing that it is no longer possible to simply try to guess the contents of the new rigid cardboard packaging, this option may prove interesting to limit breakage and share the contents of these boxes with your friends.
If you are wondering which 12 characters and their accessories are included in this 25th series (Noir Detective, Gamer Girl, Basil the Bat Lord, Paralympics Athlete, Goatherd, Kid with Mushroom Hat, Guy in Triceratops Costume, Raven, Barbarian, Kid in Locomotive & Dog Groomer) you will find on the product sheet the visual of the leaflet delivered in each box which was recently leaked on social networks.
We do not yet know the exact distribution of these boxes which could in the best case contain 3 complete sets of 12 characters, but Minifigure Madness offers the set of two boxes (72 figurines in total) at 229.98 € including postage using the code HOTH204 or, 3.20 € the minifig delivered to your home by DHL Express.
Please note, this is a pre-order, shipping announced around January 14, 2024.
If you are a little behind on your purchases of minifigs, know that the set of two boxes of 36 sachets from the 2nd series Marvel Studios (71039) is available at 234.99 € including postage with the code HOTH206 or, €3.27 per minifig and that the set of two boxes of 36 sachets of the 24th series of collectible characters (71037) is available at €284.99 including shipping with code HOTH208 or, €3.95 per minifig. All codes are cumulative.
Alongside the two extensions already revealed a few weeks ago (71429 Nabbit at Toad's Shop et 71430 Penguin Family Snow Adventure), LEGO is today adding three new references from the LEGO Super Mario range to its official online store, expected on January 1, 2024.
Please note, these sets are simple extensions of the starting board and are therefore delivered without the essential interactive figurine of Mario, Luigi or Peach which allows you to really enjoy the product. You will also notice the presence of the gray Mario figurine on each of these boxes, to see if the youngest will understand the message when they pass through the shelves of their favorite toy store.
You will therefore need to have at least one of the three starter packs to benefit from all the interactivity promised by these new extensions: you have the choice between the references 71360 Adventures with Mario, 71387 Adventures with Luigi et 71403 Adventures with Peach.
Halloween 2023 is over, it's time to prepare for the 2024 edition and the publisher Dorling Kindersley (DK for short) is wasting no time by now offering a pre-order for its next thematic work entitled The LEGO Halloween Games Book which will be available on July 2, 2024.
The usual recipe for these thematic books is once again at work with 80 pages bringing together around fifty ideas for board games on the theme of Halloween and a set of around thirty pieces without minifigs but with a skeleton LEGO. The work will not revolutionize the genre and you will have to use your personal inventory to assemble the ideas proposed, but it is a good starting point to awaken the creativity of the youngest and share some special moments with the family. It's already good.
If you had missed the other work on the same subject published in 2020 and entitled Halloween Ideas, it is still available for sale:
