The LEGO Movie 2: The Second Part release announced

The LEGO Movie Sequel, The LEGO Movie 2 has been announced for release in February 2019. That is 5 years after the release of the first LEGO Movie, this new film will be titled The LEGO Movie 2: The Second Part.

A trailer for the forthcoming LEGO Movie 2: The Second Part  has been released on YouTube and you can view it below:

It looks like it will be a Space themed movie with the usual dualistic good vs bad, featuring an incredulous Batman and some music from The Beastie Boys, who are no doubt going to be grateful of their earnings from royalties after being absent from the music scene for so long
.
Starring Chris Pratt as Emmet, Elizabeth Banks as Wyldstyle, and Will Arnett as Batman

The film sees the characters attempt to save their city five years after Bricksburg was turned into a Mad Max-style wasteland following “the horrific events of Taco Tuesday” leaving them under threat from Lego Duplo invaders from outer space.

Aside from that, with the first trailer being released only a few days ago, The Lego Movie 2: The Second Part is anticpitated by young and old alike, the film’s official release date of February 2019 being 5 years after the first LEGO Movie was released, which was covered extensively in the media and resulted in a mammoth 7.8 Score for the LEGO Movie on IMDB
The Danish Toy Company released a whole series of Sets themed around the LEGO Movie in early 2014 and now 16 of the LEGO Movie Minifigures which were priced at £1.99 each in 2014 can now be had for anything up to £90 or more on EBay which is a good return on the initial purchase price. LEGO can therefore be a better investment than gold at times.
LEGO Movie Minifigures
We wait then in anticipation for the The LEGO Movie 2: The Second Part and it’s upcoming release in February 2019

V48 Lego Engine– Engine Made Of Lego Runs Like a Clock!

V48 Lego Engine – Engine Made Of Lego Runs Like a Clock!

We have seen some great ideas of what it is possible to make using the bricks and more recently we have come across a handmade small working V48 engine made entirely out of Lego bricks. This isn’t just something to look at, it really is a V48 engine that works.

This guy decided to take a different approach and build a massive V48 engine – yeah, that’s 48 pistons worth of plastic engine spinning to life – and use it to test his various electric motors to see which one would spin the model engine the fastest and with the most torque.

Even though the LEGO engines themselves aren’t actually running, it looks amazingly cool too see that many tiny pistons working together like the real thing.He has nothing but his finger to tell how much torque the engine is producing, so we have to take his word for the strength of each engine, but you can clearly see how fast each one spins.

Not everyone is going to be able to replicate a working V48 engine in Lego bricks as the person behind it must have a lot of mechanical knowledge, plus lots of spare time and dedication to put this together.

First Impressions: LEGO Star Wars UCS 75181 Y-wing Starfighter

After a 14 year wait, the fourth LEGO Star Wars Ultimate Collector Series re-release has arrived in the type of 75181 Y-Wing Starfighter. Daniel Konstanski takes a preliminary look at the latest major Star Wars offering

Now that 75181 Y-wing Starfighter has actually been I do not know if there has actually ever been a Star Wars UCS ship so closely imitated a regular system set based upon the exact same source material. Last year’s 75172 Y-wing Starfighter plainly test drove a lot of 75181’s features. The colour plan is practically identical. Brown bars dot the fuselage of both sets. The bar building and construction of the exhaust vents is strangely comparable. The cockpit and turret are essentially identical with 75181’s being just a bit longer. This is not a bad thing– as noted in the Brick Fanatics review, last year’s Y-wing was a genuinely impressive design. Simply scaling it up appears an excellent dish for success, and I fully prepare for much of exactly what made the smaller sized version great will be much more satisfying with this larger version.

75181– UCS
75172– System

The scale of 75181 has me extremely curious. Looking at the photos it appears to be slightly large for the included minifigure pilot. In 2015’s UCS Snowspeeder reboot, set 75144, consisted of minifigures however they were plainly indicated to be decorative– an included benefit to enliven the screen stand. Here, numerous pictures show the consisted of minifigure piloting the Y-wing, and the windshield is the same as has actually been included with every variation of the Y-wing launched to this day. While I won’t deny that the idea of swooshing a model this big around the space makes me giddy with delight, the ship appears a bit large for minifigure scale. I would like to put this set next to 75192 Millennium Falcon and see how they compare.

Overall, I am very satisfied with 75181 Y-wing Starfighter. It looks to be a gorgeous design, making full usage of the larger selection of colours and parts available now to make remarkable enhancements over its predecessor from 14 years back. That original Y-Wing is somewhat amazing to look back on, the designer managed something quite incredible considering what they needed to work with at the time. Much like the other re-releases that have actually shown up over the last numerous years, this new Y-wing is so considerably much better than the first version that there is a strong case to be made that even folks who have the old one need to think about upgrading– and for folks who don’t have the previous variation this purchase will be a no brainer. After a rough 2016 as far as Star Wars UCS models went, the LEGO Group was on-point in 2017 which pattern appears to be continuing in 2018.

10184
75181

LEGO Star Wars UCS 75181 Y-wing Starfighter will be released on May 4, offered specifically at shop.LEGO.com and LEGO Stores.Solo: A Star Wars Story will be launched on May 24. The LEGO Star Wars sets based on the film will release on April 20. The present variety of LEGO Star Wars sets are readily available at shop.LEGO.com.

THE COOLEST LEGO RETRO SETS

THE COOLEST RETRO SETS

This is a guest post that has been exclusively written for Silly Billy’s Toy Shop by James Hirlehey, Writer, LEGO fanatic, and owner of Ninja Brick

I would like to reminisce about RETRO LEGO Sets that have withstood the test of time are still being played by Millions of Fans and Supporters worldwide. These sets are the classics, and if you happen to own one, you could be the envy of every child (and fan) who loves to play with LEGO.

These are the 5 retro LEGO sets that have captured the imagination of all who love LEGO. These retro sets are:

THE MILLENNIUM FALCON

LEGO Millenium Falcon

This set is one of the largest, and probably the most detailed retro set on the market today with 7500 pieces. Who can forget Han Solo’s freighter?,The ship that fought of Darth Vader and his Death Star. Or the other scene in Episode VII when Han and Chewbacca were being attacked and Rey took over the controls as the Co-pilot. Han Solo was also amazed how she was able to familiarize herself with the ship.

This set has exterior details, quad laser cannons, boarding ramps, landing posts, and a cockpit with a detachable canopy. It also features hull plates that when removed, reveals the main hold, gunnery, and rear compartment. It is also equipped with sensor dishes and crew. This set is complete with Han, Chewbacca, C3PO, and Leia if you want to play the classics, or Finn, Rey, BB-8, and if you decide to master the world of Episode VII and VIII. The whole set is measured around 21 cm high, 84 cm long, and 56cm wide.

CAFE CORNER

LEGO CAFE CORNER

Another vintage LEGO set that has caught the attention of all LEGO fans who have a flare for past projects is the Cafe Corner. This building is a tribute to the buildings of the 1950’s which were famous for their slightly gothic designs. The colors of this building highlight activity, perception and architecture. Its versatile and modular concept allows the corner to be expanded, in order to add space for other similar structures, perfect for town expansion. The building can be divided into three (3) sections and can be dismantled for easy access and transport. It consists of 2,056 pieces, and 3 mini-figures. The player can imagine citizens buying, or even playing with their bikes at the cafe front. The idea of creativity and imagination is highlighted since the set recognizes people with real-life job problems. The janitor sweeping garbage at the front of the cafe only signifies this notion. This piece would be a welcome addition in any room that recognizes classical sets. This is why this set is highly sought after by all LEGO fans and enthusiasts who have seen movies depicting the era.

TAJ MAHAL

LEGO taj mahal

Although the history of the Taj Mahal is not really as popular as it once was, it is still a coveted project for all romantics who know the tragic story of Taj Mahal and want to re-create a happy ending. Emperor Shah Jahan commissioned the building on 1631 in memory of his wife, Empress Mumtaz Mahal. It is a building signifying unending love steadfast devotion. Consisting of an ivory white marble mausoleum, it has become famous as one of the wonders of the world in terms of architecture. This LEGO project features 4 facades with sweeping arches, windows, and balconies. The dome, domed corridors, and surrounding chambers are topped with decorative bricks, and the raised platform is filled with recessed arches. Additional features include 6 blue 16×32 baseplates, Erling bricks and Jumper plates. The model tops of with an ornate and intricate tilework around the base. The set consists of 5,900 pieces and was designed to reward the builder with an insight on what it took to create the real thing. It measures around 43cm high, 51cm wide, and 51cm deep. This LEGO set would be a great ornament for the office or study.

THE DEATH STAR

LEGO THE DEATH STAR

Another classical retro set is the Death Star. The main base of Darth Vader in Star Wars. It could recount how Darth Vader and the death star troopers were defeated by the Alliance of Han Solo, Princess Leia, Chewbacca, Luke Skywalker, and many more. The replica consists of:

  • Trash Compactor
  • Tractor beam generator room
  • Detention Block
  • Conference Chamber
  • Superweapon firing room.
  • The  quarters of C-3PO and R2-D2 at the movie
  • Droid maintenance room
  • Emperor’s throne room
  • Room with crane
  • The beam where Luke Skywalker and Princess Leia cross while hanging on to a rope
  • Turret Room ( 2 Turrets )
  • A Guns an ammunitions room located under the destructive super-weapon

The Death Star also features 24 mini-figures and Droids plus a trash compactor monster, It comes with movie inspired equipment and props that include target monitors, TIE Advanced hangar with a rotating or moving launch rack, and authentic replica components include the control room and target monitor, Imperial conference chamber, TIE Advanced hangar bay with moving launch rack. This LEGO has proven to be demanding and if you plan on building this set, be patient! Always consider the options.

IMPERIAL STAR DESTROYER

LEGO Imperial Star Destroyer

The last item on my list is the Imperial Star Destroyer, the main destroyer of the Imperial Fleet. This goes to show just how popular LEGO Star Wars sets have been. This set includes 6 mini-figures with different weapons. It is equipped with a lifting handle, removable top and fold-down sides, 8 turning cannons, 2 spring-loaded shooters, storage compartments for 2 missiles, 7 powerful blue engines, and detailed interior. The Weapons are 2 blaster rifles and 2 blasters. It also features a hologram of Emperor Palpatine that hasn’t been done before. It measures over 19 cm high, 50 cm long, and 33 cm wide.

These retro sets are one of the coolest LEGO sets ever created. They were immortalized by all who love these toys and will always remain as prized collections. They are classics and would never be outdated or taken for granted. Although they represent certain eras and movies that were once famous, it is the replica itself that salutes the producers and makers of those movies or buildings. Through these replicas, they will never be forgotten.
