Forum user Morgan19 has alerted us to a new blog post at the LEGO Ideas blog detailing the results of the Winter 2014 Review!
The next LEGO Ideas set, #008, has been announced, to be named “Research Institute” and available come August of 2014. Based on the proposal “Female Minifigure Set” created by Ellen “Alatariel” Kooijman, the set will feature three minifigure scientists, and presumably their research subjects in brick form.
Interestingly, this marks the first time that a project has been approved for production after being held over from a previous review period, as well as the first time not one project that reached 10,000 supporters in the review period window will make it to the product stage.

There’s a new app from LEGO and that’s the new LEGO Ultra Agents app based on the new Agents theme for Summer. Forum member ncbarrett reports that the new ultra Agents app is available for iOS and Android and its basically a comic with games. Details for the app is available here.

If you prefer to order from Amazon, both Amazon.com and Amazon.co.uk have some of the new Summer sets (Movie, Super Heroes and more) available for immediate dispatch. Free shipping thresholds are lower at Amazon ($35 for USA, free for UK, £25 for Europe) compared to LEGO Shop at Home ($75 for USA or £49 for UK) and you also get no tax for some states in America.
The trade off is that if you spend $75/£49 or more, you won’t get the FREE Creator LEGO Balloon Cart polybag set. Also, you get VIP points (about 5% cash back in redemption for LEGO) from LEGO Shop and LEGO Brand Stores.
Other big box and toy retailers should also be carrying most of these new June 2014 sets as well.

Welcome to June! The first of the month always include loads of new releases, particularly in the summer months. Lots of new products are now available including LEGO Mixel Series 2, City Trains, Movie, Ninjago, Super Heroes and lots more! Plus, don’t forget about the new exclusives including 21108 Ghostbusters, 21107 Micro World The End and 10244 Fairground Mixer. See What’s New: US | Canada | UK
Until June 30th 2014, you can also get a free LEGOLAND ticket offer with any purchase. The offer is good for one free ticket with any full paid ticket to LEGOLAND Parks or LEGOLAND Discover Centers.
If you missed the FREE Exclusive Creator LEGO Balloon Cart with every Creator Fairground Mixer Set earlier (for VIPs), they are offering the same freebie again. However, you just need to spend $75 or more and you’ll get the set. Offer is valid from June 1-15. Shop Now: US | Canada | UK

A Japanese blog has posted images for six of the 12 LEGO Series 12 Minifigures. It appears the picture originated from a teaser advertisement for LEGO Simpsons Minifigures. This series will be available beginning October 2014. (via Eurobricks)
