Lego are continually inventing and re-inventing products and one of the latest, that unfortunately we cannot get hold of, is The Silent Mary. This Amazing Galleon from Pirates of the Caribbean looks to be a top build and one that would provide hours of entertainment. You can only buy the Silent Mary which is available now to Lego VIP Customers (the author of the blog is one of those) and available for general release on 1st April 2017 see shop.lego.com/en-GB/Silent-Mary-71042

To compliment our exisiting Lego batman range we have also just received 70905, The Batmobile

Saw Lego Batman Movie Opening Night – And I Was Not Disappointed!

Saw Lego Batman Movie Opening Night – And I Was Not Disappointed!

Lego Batman Movie Coming to Hebden Bridge Picture House Next Weekend

Lego Batman Movie

Images Originating from: https://imgflip.com/i/1jo9me

With the Lego Batman Movie coming to the Hebden Bridge Picture House in 12 days time, we can see the excitement that has already been generated from the general release on 10th February. We have written about Lego Batman before on this blog and have held out seeing the new movie until it’s release in our local Independent Cinema, The Hebden Bridge Picture House.

What have the critics said ?
Owen Gleiberman in Variety says:
The first thing to say about “The Lego Batman Movie” is that it’s kicky, bedazzling, and super-fun. The second thing to say about it is that, like “The Lego Movie” (2014), it’s a kiddie flick that’s been made in a sophisticated spirit of lightning-fast, brain-bursting paradox. The movie uses digital animation to create the illusion that it’s set in a herky-jerky universe of plastic Lego bricks — but it has such a kaleidoscopic, anything-goes flow that it trumps the imagination of just about any animated feature you could name. The characters are Lego minifigures with pegs for heads and crudely etched faces that barely move, yet they have more personality than the majority of human actors. Most delicious of all: “The Lego Batman Movie” comes on like a kid-friendly sendup of the adult world, yet there’s a dizzying depth to its satirical observations that grows right out of the spectacularly fake settings, which are hypnotic to look at but have the effect of putting postmodern quotation marks around…everything.
Originally published here

We have plenty of Lego Batman Minifgures left for all of you trying to complete the Lego Batman Movie Minifgure collection of twenty minifigures. As this is a limited edition release of minifgures you can expect them to increase in value just as the Lego Movie (2014) Minifgures have done. See image below:
Lego Movie MinifguresOriginal Price £2.49 RRP per minifigure so one set would cost 16 x £2.49 = £39.84 if you can determine each minifgure individually

Sale price £79.99 which is pretty much double the cost price.

Batman Minifigures – Progress

Batman Minifigures – Progress

The Lego Batman Minifigures Collection Continues:

So far in this series we have managed to obtain 7 of the 20 Collectible Lego Batman minifigures, so in total one third of the full collection of twenty obtainable in this series, this is what we have so far:

  • Vacation Batman™
  • The Joker™ – Arkham Asylum
  • Dick Grayson™
  • Nurse Harley Quinn™
  • Orca™
  • The Calculator™
  • King Tut™
    Batman Minifigs

This is what one Lego Fan has said about the latest Lego Batman Minifigures collection:

I really like these Lego Batman Movie figures a lot here’s the one’s I was able to find first is Pink Power Batgirl I really like this figure and is a different and new verison of Batgirl which is new plus I like her pink Baterang which I really like alot, The Eraser is a cool figure plus I like how he resembles a pencil which is very cool Nurse Harley Quinn I like alot and at first I wasnt’t sure about getting her but after awhile I decided I did and she is very cute plus I like her clipboard with the Joker and on the side it reads H & J, Orca is one of my favorites and for me finding him was the hardest but I really like how he looks just like a Killer Whale with the color and plus he goes great with the Shark Suit Guy from series 15 and last is March Harriet this figure is not bad and I like her brown bunny ears and her costume with her gun but I think she goes well with the Bunny Suit Guy from Series 7. These are all excellent figures and I might think about maybe getting one of the Batman figures but overall I really like all these figures and can’t wait to see the movie next month when it comes out.

We are really excited for the release of the New Lego Batman Movie next month.

As well as Lego being Fun and Exciting with lots of characters and always changing, it is also a hugely educational Toy as well and here is an article that has been written about the Top 10 Ways Legos Are Educational for Your Child: Learning with LEGO, please give it a read.
