Another month has come to a close. The highlight of September for all LEGO fans must be the release of the LEGO Ninjago Movie – Have you watched it yet? And if you already have, how did you find the movie? Did it meet your expectation, exceed your expectation, or is it below your expectation? (Feel free to share with us your thoughts in the comments section below.)
Besides the release of the LEGO Ninjago Movie, another top news is LEGO’s announcement of the 7,541-piece UCS Millennium Falcon (it, unfortunately, won’t be made available on October 1st due it being out of stock), along with news of a 6-year-old who have submitted a job application to LEGO claiming he has ‘lots of experience’, the release of a brand new LEGO Ideas set – the Old Fishing Store (21310), a LEGO replica of the GT-R Nismo, and more!
Find out more about the above and the rest of the news we’ve featured in our Facebook page this month in this month’s issue of LEGO Picks of the Month below… Enjoy! ?
