Rovio, a company that produces one of the most recognized Angry Birds mobile games has been seeing a decline in their merchandise sales. Today, they have announced that they will be partnering with The LEGO Group in an effort to produce LEGO Angry Birds sets. I wonder how the sets will turn out in LEGO form.
A 2016 Angry Birds Movie will be released and LEGO sets will be produced based on the film. LEGO sets are expected to be available beginning Spring 2016. Press release taken from Rovio:
LAS VEGAS, Nevada– 8th June 2015– Rovio, makers of Angry Birds, the most downloaded mobile game ever, today announced a partnership with The LEGO Group to develop a line of construction toys. LEGO® Angry Birds will be available in spring 2016 to coincide with the release of The Angry Birds Movie, a full-length feature film based on the popular gaming franchise.
“The LEGO brand has an unparalleled ability to connect with people through products that spark creativity and imagination. We’re really excited to build experiences together with this amazing best-in-class partner,” said Pekka Rantala, Chief Executive Officer of Rovio.
“We are excited to bring Angry Birds to life in LEGO form, given the popularity of the game and its characters with fans of all ages, which will only be amplified by the forthcoming film,” said Jill Wilfert, Vice President, licensing & entertainment at The LEGO Group. “We seek partnership with globally relevant properties that offer a unique and rewarding play experience to our fans, and our designers are having fun developing building sets that leverage the engaging play and deconstruction found in the Angry Birds game.”
Further details about the collection, available in spring of 2016, are not yet available.

Update: Minifigure is Trickster! Thanks to forum members Cadenreigns and Bertramtalespinner for the tip.
The LEGO DC Super Heroes Justice League: Attack of the Legion of Doom Movie was revealed last week and now the exclusive minifigure has been revealed from Amazon! I’m not exactly sure what character this is as I haven’t been following DC Comics. But I’m sure one of you would be able to fill me in!
The movie will be available beginning August 25th, 2015. Interestingly, Amazon has two versions listed for pre-order. The one without the minifigure cost $24.99 while the one with the minifigure is discounted to $19.99. Thanks to Patrick for writing in.

We’ve seen pictures of this limited edition LEGO Bat-Pod set earlier and now the contest/promotion is here! From now until June 30th, when you make any LEGO DC Super Heroes purchase (and use your LEGO VIP Card) at LEGO Brand Stores or Shop at Home, you will be entered into a raffle where you could potentially win 1 of 750 exclusive limited edition LEGO DC Super Heroes Bat-Pod sets! This is available for those living in North America only. In addition, they also have an “email entry” as well where you don’t have to make any purchase. Limit one entry per day during the contest period.
LEGO estimates the retail value of these grand prizes are $50 USD. They also state that no more than 75 prizes will be awarded to residents of ANY single US State/Federal District or ANY single Canadian province/territory. So if you live in a state or province with fewer residents (that are LEGO fans), your chances of winning could potentially be higher.
*Full details available in the LEGO forums.

The first image of the upcoming LEGO Star Wars Sith Infiltrator set has surfaced online. This set will be part of the Summer 2015 LEGO Star Wars wave and will be made available in August 2015.
It will be priced at 99,99 Euros and will contain 660 pieces. There are four minifigures included including Qui-Gon, Anakin Skywalker, Watto and Darth Maul. It doesn’t look like the minifigures are new. However, $100 for the Sith Infiltrator is pretty pricey! The last version I thought was already expensive enough at $69.99 USD / $89.99 CAD!
