As we discussed last week, the #70840 LEGO Movie 2 Welcome to Apocalypseburg! set is now available for LEGO VIP members (general release will be on February 1st). With the release of the set, LEGO also started a new promotion for The LEGO Movie 2 collectable trading cards and trading card packs! Below are the details. 🙂

The LEGO Movie 2 Collector Album is available to LEGO VIP members with purchases of $15 or more. Each album includes an exclusive VIP card, details from the movie, and quotes from the characters.

If your purchase total is $40 or more, you will also get three free packs of trading cards along with the collector album. There are a total of 36 cards to collect, including some special foil cards.

Please note that the offer for the trading cards is available to everyone, not just LEGO VIP members. You will get them as long as your purchase total is $40 or more. However, the collector album is only available to LEGO VIP members. Also, although this promotion is mostly about The LEGO Movie 2, you can purchase any item at the Online LEGO Shop not just sets from The LEGO Movie 2. Both offers are valid until February 24th, or while supplies last. If you would like to take advantage of these offers, visit the Online LEGO Shop.

In the video-review below, JANGBRiCKS will show you the cards in more detail, as he already got three packs with his purchase.

While LEGO trading cards are not LEGO bricks, they are fun to collect. They are high quality, and come with nice artwork. If you are creative, you can even incorporate them in LEGO projects as posters, backgrounds for minifigs, or as other type of art. If you live near a LEGO store, there are also going to be some trading card swap days on February 3rd and 18th.

What do you think? Do you plan to collect The LEGO Movie 2 trading cars? Do you have any of The LEGO Movie 2 sets? Which one is your favorite? Feel free to share and discuss in the comment section below! 😉

While the six new LEGO Overwatch sets became available for pre-order towards the end of last year, the didn’t ship until the 1st of January. Thus, we are just now starting to get feedback and reviews from LEGO fans who already tried out the set. Personally, I only ordered the two version of Bastion (the Blizzard exclusive and the standard release), however the other sets are also worth checking out. Below, we will take a look at each of the sets with LEGO fan reviewers just2good and JANGBRiCKS. 🙂

Before we begin, I just wanted to point out how incredibly detailed the minifigures are in this collection. The printing on the minifigures, the various headgear, hairpieces, and other accessories are a work of art. And the sets themselves are also very well designed. Whether you are a fan of the game, or you are just looking for interesting parts, the LEGO Overwatch sets are worth checking out.

The #75970 LEGO Overwatch Tracer vs. Widowmaker set recreates the drone satellite from the Watchpoint: Gibraltar map where Overwatch heroes Tracer and Widowmaker battle for control of the payload. The satellite drone payload vehicle features a hidden cockpit with computer detailing, opening rear hold, a removable drone ‘brain’ element and a health pack for added play. While the vehicle uses stickers, there is a checkpoint disk, which is fully printed. Weapons include Widowmaker’s Widow’s Kiss and Tracer’s twin Pulse Pistols. This is a good starter set for both play and display, if you want to try out the Overwatch theme. 129 pieces. Price: $14.99 – BUY HERE

In the #75971 LEGO Overwatch Hanzo vs. Genji is a location based set, recreating the epic face-off for the Hanamura dojo between the rival dragon brothers Hanzo and cyborg ninja Genji. The third minifig is Shimada Henchman. Hanamura dojo features a weapons stand, health pack, and two hidden disc-shooters that represent the dragon spirits of each brother. Weapons include Genji’s Ryu-Ichimonji sword and Hanzo’s Storm Bow. 197 pieces. Price: $19.99 – BUY HERE

The #75972 LEGO Overwatch Dorado Showdown has the largest building, designed in the style of the buildings of the Dorado map, and features three windows, lamps, a lantern, a mini market booth and a doorway for the payload truck to pass through. The payload truck has space for a minifigure, a generator payload that can be taken off, and hidden wheels to simulate the payload truck hovering (like in the game). The three characters are Soldier: 76, Reaper, and McCree. Weapons include Soldier: 76’s Heavy Pulse Rifle, Reaper’s twin Hellfire Shotguns, and McCree’s Peacekeeper six-shooter revolver. 419 pieces. Price: $29.99 – BUY HERE

The #75973 LEGO Overwatch D.Va & Reinhardt includes two smaller size mechs (one in pink!). The D.Va tank model has shooting function, and the Reinhardt tank model features a buildable colossal Rocket Hammer. Both mechs are about 5 inches tall, and open to fit a minifig inside. Weapons include D.Va’s Fusion Cannons and Reinhardt’s Rocket Hammer. 455 pieces. Price: $39.99 – BUY HERE

The #75974 LEGO Overwatch Bastion is probably the most talked about LEGO Overwatch set. LEGO designers did an excellent job recreating one of the most recognizable characters from the game with realistic details and colors, and the model is fully reconfigurable from recon mode to sentry mode without any rebuilding (see video-review below). Bastion in recon mode stands around 10” tall, and in sentry mode around 6” tall. There is a red light-brick in Bastion’s head that can be turned on. Bastion’s little bird friend is also included. Price: $49.99 – BUY HERE

The #75975 LEGO Overwatch Watchpoint: Gibraltar is the largest of the LEGO Overwatch sets and features and Overwatch rocket and launch tower from the Watchpoint: Giblartar map. The Overwatch rocket can split into two, with a cockpit in each section (see video-review below). The smaller rocket features a trunk big enough for big figure Winston, plus bananas and peanut butter jar. The launch pad allows the rocket to be supported vertically, and there is also a printed checkpoint disk. Characters include Pharah with her Rocket Launcher, Mercy with her Caduceus Staff and Blaster, Reaper with his twin Hellfire Shotguns, and a Winston big figure with his Tesla Cannon. Both the rocket and the rocket launcher are about 14″ tall! 730 pieces. Price: $89.99 – BUY HERE

In the video-player below, I have included reviews by both just2good and JANGBRiCKS. You can use the drop-down list in the upper-left corner of the player to select the review you would like to watch. Enjoy!

Based on what I have been hearing from Overwatch fans, the sets have been well received. Limiting the collection to only six sets makes it possible to collect them all (and get all those amazing minifigs!). If the LEGO Overwatch theme does well, it’s possible that we will get other sets based on games by Blizzard Entertainment. You can find all the new sets at the LEGO Overwatch section of the Online LEGO Shop.

What do you think? How do you like the LEGO Overwatch sets? Do you have a favorite vehicle, location, or minifigure? Are you planning to get any of the sets? Or did you get some already? Feel free to share and discuss in the comment section below! 😉
