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.

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.
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.
Promobricks has found an image of the first free holiday gift or this year, 40138 Holiday Train. In America, the set will be available between October 13th and November 13th with purchases over $99. It is unsure whether this set will be in a polybag or a box like these exclusives have been for the past few years. There is no minifigure but it does look like a nice set which I will probably pick up when I buy the Winter Village Toy Shop. All we need now is an image of the next Christmas exclusive which is rumoured to be a Gingerbread House.
Also, The Brick Fan has posted an image of the October Store calendar for the USA. Double VIP points will be between 1st October to 4th October which will probably be the same in the UK. You can see the full store calendar below:
Over on the Brickset Forum, two images have been posted of the next seasonal vignettes to be exclusivelly available from LEGO S@H and brand stores. Following Valentine's Day Dinner (40120) and Painting Easter Eggs (40121) which were previously available this year, the next two seasonal sets to follow on the series will be Halloween Trick or Treat (40122) and Thanksgiving Feast (40123).
Halloween trick or treat is due to hit the shelves in September with Thanksgiving Feast arriving one month later in October. Both should have retail prices of £8.49 like the previous two from this year.
Along this these two new seasonal vignettes there will be another two with names of: Winter Fun (40124) and Santa's Visit (40125). However, images of these are yet to be revealed. Another thing mentioned on the forum is the Christmas exclusive sets usually given away in October and Black Friday in November. These will be Christmas Train (40138) and Gingerbread House (40139). Expect images of these to be revealed soon as well.
Over on their official Facebook Page, LEGO have revealed official images of the upcoming series 14 collectable minifigures which will be available from September 1st. This series is based on monsters and you can see all 16 of the new minifigures below:
These unfamiliar models include Echo Base north entrance doors, the ion cannon, the command centre, the Wampa cave, the shield generator and some Rebel gun emplacements. It is assumed these models will make up a UCS Hoth Echo Base set to be released later this year.
These models look good and if these do make up the Hoth Echo Base set, it might be a set I will purchase! In the picture above, I like the look of the vehicle and I hope that it is included in the set!
Thanks to Brickset for news and images.

The first image of the new creator ferris wheel has been discovered via a Facebook Group called AFOL's of FaceBook. I is official to be available from May 13th for VIP members and from June 1st for the general public. The image looks like it has been taken from a store calendar maybe May of June. I have read on the Brickset Forum that the set will cost £149.99/$199.99. The set certainly looks big with a colourful colour scheme and lots of minifigures. I wonder if it will come with or will work with power functions?
