A new polybag has been revealed and it is 5003048 Marvel Super Heroes Hulk. It comes with an olive green Hulk minifigure and a vehicle which can be split in half. The polybag is similar to the Rocket Raccoon polybag from last year since it comes with a sticker sheet as well. In the USA, the polybag will be available at Toys R Us from December 6th but no information on UK availability. Based on last year with the Rocket Raccoon polybag, I would imagine it will be available at Brick 2015 Birmingham and London conventions in the UK.

There have been rumours from reliable sources that LEGO will be releasing a Ghostbusters Firehouse Headquaters (set number 75827) on January 1st 2016. Details have been given which include the set containing over 4600 pieces and retailing for $350. The set will be able to be opened up to see interior detail. It is not confirmed whether or not the set will be coming with an Ecto-1 vehicle but the Ecto-1 set is still currently available to purchase on the LEGO Shop website.

Images have been revealed of the yearly Toys R Us Bricktober Promotion. The theme is continuing from last year where each week a 'mini modular' will be given free with certain purchases on LEGO products. This years mini modulars are a Hotel, Train Station, Bakery and Toys R Us Store. Unfortunately, this promotion probably won't be available in the UK but the sets do look quite easy to Bricklink if instructions become available.
Two Star Wars: The Force Awakens polybags have recently been discovered. The first one is C-3PO with unique side printing on his legs and a red arm. The mystery of the red arm will probably make sense when the movie is released. This polybag was given away at Toys R Us stores in Germany during midnight openings on Force Friday and is also currently available at LEGOLAND Florida and Malaysia with qualifying purchases. C-3PO will be available in the UK sometime around November or December at the end of this year.
The Brick Fan has revealed the second polybag, First Order Special Forces Tie Fighter. This is a brick built set and there is no word of where it has come from, availability or price.
Happy Force Friday!
The much anticipated Force Friday is now upon us where Star Wars: The Force Awakens merchandise can now be purchased! This includes 7 brand new LEGO sets which were revealed yesterday.
In the UK, purchases over £50 on LEGO Star Wars product will get you a free Admiral Yularen polybag and don't forget you can still receive a free Kai Drifter with purchases over £25 and a free Star Wars Episode 1 poster with any LEGO Star Wars purchase.
I am going to Toys R Us then to the LEGO Store this morning and hopefully all the products will not have already sold out.

The next LEGO Star Wars: The Force Awakens set which has been revealed is 75105 Millennium Falcon and it has been revealed on Good Morning America in Times Square, New York. It is the largest of the seven new sets containing 1332 pieces and 6 minifigures. It is also the most expensive priced at £129.99.
The third set to be revealed today is 75104 Kylo Ren's Command Shuttle and has been revealed from Berlin in Germany. It will be priced at £99.99 and contains 1004 pieces along with 6 minifigures.
The set designer, Niels Fredriksen, was at the reveal. When interviewed earlier he mentioned that only a few members of staff were permitted to see the source material for the sets when they visited Pinewood Studios in Spring of 2014 and that they were not allowed to take photos of what they saw. Instead, some of the graphic designers returned to Denmark with sketches on which the initial set designs were based.
The next LEGO Star Wars: The Force Awakens set to be revealed has come from Cape Town in South Africa and it is 75103 First Order Transporter.
The set will be priced at £79.99 and comes with 792 pieces along with 7 minifigures. I would expect that most, if not all, LEGO Star Wars: The Force Awakens sets will be revealed today.
The first LEGO Star Wars: The Force Awakens set has been revealed this morning and it is 75102 Poe's X-Wing Fighter. The set will be priced at £69.99 and contains 717 pieces along with 4 minifigures.
Today is the global merchandise event for Star Wars: The Force Awakens has begun today and this reveal came from South Korea so expect more LEGO reveals throughout the day. You can watch the unboxing event live on the Star Wars YouTube channel.
Battle the forces of the First Order with Poe’s X-Wing Fighter. This customized starfighter is packed with features, like the 4 spring-loaded shooters, 2 stud shooters, retractable landing gear, opening wings, opening cockpit with space for a minifigure and space behind for the BB-8 Astromech Droid. There’s even a loader with tool rack, extra ammunition, and a seat for a minifigure. So climb the access ladder, strap in and get ready to recreate your own great scenes from Star Wars: The Force Awakens! Includes 3 minifigures with assorted accessories: Poe Dameron, Resistance ground crew and a Resistance X-Wing Pilot, plus a BB-8 Astromech Droid.
Hoth Bricks is reporting that LEGO will be giving out a free polybag during Force Friday which is only a couple of days away. However, this polybag is not a brand new Star Wars: The Force Awakens polybag but only Admiral Yularen which was previously given out during May 4th weekend. This offer will be available between 4th September - 5th September with LEGO Star Wars purchases over 50 EUR which should be around £50 if this offer comes to the UK.
This can be very disappointing for fans who already have the Admiral Yularen polybag and it seems LEGO are no longer making an effort in their products much like the re-release of the Winter Village Toy Shop.
But, this article over on Promobricks is reporting that a First Order Snowtrooper polybag is rumoured to be given away during Force Friday. This could be at another retailer like Toys R Us though.
All we can do is wait and see what retailers are offering what in the coming days.
It is now September 1st and Autumn has begun. Although the weather is not great, LEGO have released some great new products available to buy from today!
Also, on Friday, shops around the world including LEGO S@H and LEGO Stores will be selling the brand new Star Wars: The Force Awakens sets.
