1 Year of BrickKnight!

Today marks one year since I started this website. There have been a few lulls but 123 posts in all isn’t bad. I’ve reviewed 42 sets give or take a few classics. Hopefully at least 42 people have visited the site at some point…

Here’s to the future – (and if you want to be specific, hopefully a future of reviewing some Doctor Who sets that don’t require purchasing a video game) that might happen before anniversary number 2.

Official Images of 2015 Lego Sets – including Marvel’s Age of Ultron sets

It’s like an official leak! Unlike the images previously all the minifigures are corrected. The Hulk is now much darker.

Speed Champions pg 66

Marvel Super Heroes pg 68 – once again the only way to get a Black Widow figure will be to buy a Quinjet set – why did they make another one when the last one sold so poorly?

Lego 10937 Arkham Asylum Breakout has been retired

So long old friend.

I noticed yesterday that it was listed as “sold out” on the Lego Shop at Home website. I went to the Lego store today and inquired and they confirmed it had been retired. They did not have any in stock at the store either. Other than that, not much excitement at the Lego store these days.

First photo of 10246 Lego Detective Agency which is called Detective’s Office leak

It’s an office not an agency.

2262 pieces and what appear to be 6 minifigures. Hopefully Lego will put some official pictures up soon so we can get a better look at it. Interesting that there were rumors about this for months and months calling it Detective Agency – I wonder who is leaking the information from Lego – and is it really leaking? It’s not like they’re making missiles (other than the flick fire kind) or secret weapons. Giving out the name just encourages discussion, so it’s really in their best interest.
