30225 -Lego City Coast Guard Seaplane Polybag

I was out looking for a nice Valentine's Day card for my sweetie at Target and saw a pile of these in one of the aisle.  I figured why not treat myself as well and pick up a polybag I didn't have.  Part of the City Coast Guard theme we get a nice little seaplane and pilot.

 I also like the plane features a throwable life ring.

 The minifigure comes with a snazzy life vest and hat.

 He also has nice body detailing.
Cool little set for a four dollar bill and you get some nice elements too. At a little over a dime a piece that's not too shabby.

Getting closer to putting together a Justice League

I have no idea if Lego is ever planning on putting out a Justice League themed set from the DC Super Heroes line. Right now everything is Batman related. But I just saw that March's Lego Promotion will be for this guy...
homana homana homana. That's the freaking Martian Manhunter and any fan the Justice League, especially the old school team, will  know this guy.  We are getting one step closer to having a full licensed Justice League minifigure set. Just need a Green Lantern and Green Arrow to show up, maybe a Black Canary. So far we've got a slew of Batman to choose from, one non-movie Superman, a Wonder Woman, Flash, and Aquaman.  I'm going to start working on my JLA satellite right now!!

76009 Superman: Black Zero Escape

I'll be honest I haven't seen Man of Steel yet.  It's on my to do list. Anyway, when the movie came out Lego gave us 3 movie related sets. Unfortuneatly all three sets have the same Superman and Zod.
For my money the middle set is probably the best deal. Plus you get Lois Lane. If all you're interested in is the Superman and Zod I'd say just grab the smaller $12.99 set.
The Superman is different from the 6862 Superman vs Power Armor Lex  set. Which is currently the only other Lego set to feature Superman that is not movie related.

The control area has a sliding door and a fold down computer screen.

The escape pod is big and has all sorts of neat details

On to the minis.  Every minifigure in this set has two faces to pick from.

Zod has a lot of pieces and comes with extra hair to display him without his helmet.

Back detail with out the camp
Front detail without the armor.

Exclusive Lego Movie Minifigure from Regal Cinemas

The wife and I are members of the Regal Cinema's Crown Club.  She got an email the other day letting us know that the theaters would be offering a free exclusive minifigure with 3D ticket purchase of the Lego Movie.  Regal's exclusive mini is the Pajamas Emmet. Which looks a lot like the Series 6 Sleeptime Guy. As a matter of fact it looks like the body is identical.

FBTB has reported that AMC will offer a Robot DJ exclusive and there is also an exclusive Wild West Emmet offered with the  preorder of the Lego Movie video game.  I'm sure there are other exclusives offered from some of the other big chain theaters and possibly from some smaller independant places too.
