Earlier today, there was designer video on youtube showcasing the new and upcoming LEGO 10225 UCS R2-D2 set from the Star Wars line. Its been pulled now and marked as private video, but fortunately, Brickset is reporting that someone managed to reupload it onto youtube. This ultimate collector’s series set should be available sometime this year in 2012. With the designer video out, it won’t be long now!

As a reminder, most of the first wave Zellers stores will begin their liquidation clearance tommorow. However, it appears that some stores have begun their liquidation early. Forum member HallwayOrchard reports to us that his store in New Brunswick has already put all toys (including LEGO) for 20% off. As noted on their website, remember that liquidation stores will not honour any sort of other promotions or discounts and all sales are final.
20% off is a good start for LEGO Liquidation, but I’m sure the discount will get better. The tradeoff however is that the longer you wait, the smaller the selection. We all know the LEGO selection at Zellers isn’t the greatest, so lets hope the discount makes it quickly to 40-50% off before all the good stuff is gone!
In addition to the new LEGO Friends polybags, Wal-Mart US is also carrying four new LEGO polybags from the City and Ninjago line. Price is $3.47 each so they’re a little bit cheaper than the Friends polybags. Thanks to forum member just2good for the news.

LEGO has now put out another round of new buildings that you can inspire them to make it into a LEGO set. Like the first round, there’s 10 buildings you can vote for. So far, the votes seems to be evenly spread out. If any of these sets gets made into LEGO form, we’ll probably see these LEGO Architecture sets in 2013.
Habitat 67 won the first round of “Inspire and Vote” at the LEGO.com Architecture website. However, LEGO Habitat 67 will not be made into a LEGO set (at least for the time being). Instead, they will consider it as a “potential” LEGO Architecture set. (thanks autobrick)
