It has been announced that the LEGO Message Boards are being closed down. The subsite of LEGO.com, which went into Beta Testing in 1999 before opening in 2001, will be shut down in just two months on March 6, 2017. However, the site will go into read-only mode on February 28, meaning the last day you can post there will be on February 27. The full announcement is available here.
LEGO City Undercover is being remastered and will be released on the Playstation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and Steam in Spring 2017; however it seems that the PSVita has been left out of the picture. This is very surprising given that LEGO City Undercover was exclusive to the Wii U for its gamepad gimmick, as well as all of its Nintendo references. From the image we've been given, it seems that the LCPD uniforms and vehicles will be updated to their 2017 counterparts.
Perhaps a LEGO City Undercover: The Chase Begins remaster might be in the works as well? LEGO was very dodgy when asked about the subject, telling fans to "stay tuned" when asked about the subject.
More reveals, this time they're from Brickset who have posted images of Elves, Disney, Classic and some of the missing Creatorsets. Unfortunately there are no box images so we still don't have names for all the goblins in the Elves theme, but you can see the revealed images below:
Final images of 2017 Star Warssets have surfaced, this time discovered by Eurobricks user benderisgreat. So far, we've only got images of sets from Rogue One, but the rest should be revealed sometime soon. As usual, check out the images below!
Hoth Bricks has done it again, finding images of the first wave of 2017Ninjago sets. The wave features vehicles for their latest enemies, the Vermillion, including a tank in 70624 Vermillion Invader and a mech in 70626 Dawn of Iron Doom. The ninja also get new vehicles including a bike for Jay in 70622 Desert Lightning and a baby Destiny's Bounty called Destiny's Child Shadow. There's also a Samurai dressed in dark blue who's fighting with Nya in 70625 Samurai VXL- the names of the minifigures on the tops of the boxes are too small to make out though. Some clues may point toward the Samurai being Ronin- the name of the vehicle (Samurai VXL) has some similarities to the naming style of Ronin's vehicles (Ronin R.E.X. and Salvage M.E.C.) as well as "Ronin" meaning a Samurai without a master, but it could be anyone. Perhaps the highlight of the wave however is the largest set, 70627 Dragon's Forge, complete with two-headed dragon, blacksmith's shop, a snake-like Vermillion mech and Kai and Nya's parents. Anyway, check out the images below and let us know what you think!
