LEGO Club Magazine: Moana & more!

in Other News & Updates

The LEGO Club Magazine is known for frequently including teasers for upcoming LEGO sets and themes, and the 2016 November-December issue is no exception. While the magazine mostly features comics, games, quizzes and tutorials for kids, older LEGO fans can also find the content interesting, especially when it gives hints to future releases. 🙂

The very first page of the LEGO Club Magazine introduces the new LEGO Life app. LEGO Life is a social platform on both iOS and Android devices for young LEGO fans to share their LEGO builds, join groups, interact with others in message boards, participate in building challenges, etc. – all in a safe online environment. The app is only available in the UK at this point, but will also get rolled out in other countries next year. You can visit the official website to learn more: LEGO.com/Life

On page 10 of the LEGO Club Magazine, there is a word-search game featuring Batman and some of the new suits (including the much-talked-about utility-belt) from The LEGO Batman Movie. At the back of the magazine there is another reference to The LEGO Batman Movie with minifigs waiting for the movie opening at the LEGO Creator Palace Cinema. As we discussed a few days ago, the trailers of the film are creating a lot of excitement, and LEGO fans are eagerly waiting for the release on February 10th, 2017.

While every child gets the same LEGO Club Magazine, boys and girls usually get different inserts. Inserts for boys include more comics and games based on boyish themes like LEGO Star Wars, LEGO Super Heroes and LEGO Ninjago, while girls’s inserts focus on the mini-doll based themes. The latest insert for girls is particularly interesting as it introduces two new themes coming soon.

On page 8, we get the first clear picture of one of the LEGO Disney Moana sets. Moana is a new Disney film schedule for release at the end of November. You have probably seen the trailer already, but in case you didn’t, here is the synopsis: “On a mystic island in Polynesia, the young princess of the tribe, Moana from Motunui Island, is a born navigator who sets sail in search of a fabled island of mysterious secrets. During her journey, she teams up with her hero and legendary demigod Maui.” As you can see, the #41150 LEGO Disney Moana’s Ocean Voyage includes Maui as a big-fig, Moana as a mini-doll, and we even get a new rooster! There will at least one other Moana-based set, the #41149 LEGO Disney Moana’s Island Adventure, but we have no picture of it yet.

On the last page of the girls’ insert we get introduced to the LEGO DC Super Hero Girls characters, and one of the sets, the #41232 LEGO Super Hero High School. We have discussed this new theme already, and you can see the other sets here: LEGO Super Hero Girls Sets Revealed!

Besides the above mentioned tidbits there are a lot of interesting stories, comics and games based on current LEGO themes, so if you are subscribed to the printed version of the LEGO Club Magazine, make sure you check it out. If you don’t get the printed version, you can also flip through the magazine online at the LEGO Club website.

All great news. Looking forward to the Batman Movie sets, Moana, and the super hero girls also look good. The app can be a bit redundant though. Doesn’t the current website already have those features?

Yeah, I wondered about that too. The app seems to be duplicating a lot of the current site’s features, so I’m not sure if the app suppose to replace them, or they are going to merge them together, or keep them as a separate thing. LEGO’s website does have a lot of redundant and disorganized sections, so I wouldn’t be surprised with any of those options.

Nice! I might get the Lego® life app, is it out already?
Just another question: Thoes anyone reccomend a website were you can order lego parts in official lego colors, but lego didn’t brought out those pieces in that color. An example: part nr. 52031 in olive green or chrome silver. These are official lego colors and pieces, but lego didn’t made that part in that color.

Chrome colored parts you can get from LEGO customizers. I wrote an article about some of the most well-known and reliable chromers here: http://thebrickblogger.com/2011/06/lego-chromers/

For other colors, you can either wait (and hope) that LEGO will make the part in that color, see if any of the LEGO knockoff brands make a similar piece in the color you want, or change the color yourself using vinyl die or paint.

In regards to your other question about the app, as I mentioned in the article, it is only out in the UK at this point, and will be available in other countries/languages in 2017.

I remember there were some customizers producing foliage in a lot of different colors… Proper ABS (I think) and the same format as common foliage parts…
