Hello again my friends and welcome back to my coverage of the 2018 “Sweet Suite” which is an event that’s organized by the folks over at The Toy Insider. If you are somehow just joining us today for some reason, then you are going to want to click HERE first so you can enjoy the two chapters that preceded this one. Let’s go.
Nintendo had a small section of their own which was quite popular. Several new and recent games were on display to try out and those attending were able to try and win a prize. I am a TERRIBLE gamer so it took me a little doing.
Hello my friends and welcome back to another exciting adventure here on “The Chronicles”. The summer was here in full sway and while its getting hot, the special events and happenings are even hotter. One such event that we have recently enjoyed is the “Sweet Suite” that is curated by our friends over at The Toy Insider. Longer tenured site readers know about them already but the newbies might need a tad bit of education about them.
The Toy Insider is a collective of industry experts that examine and share the findings about the hottest toys and games that are hitting the shelves and the “Sweet Suite” event is where they bring in the companies behind these items and put them face to face with those YouTube personalities, Social Media Influencers and members of the media (that’s us). The event was once again held at Pier 60 down in the Chelsea Piers area and when you walked in there was this awesome Statue of Liberty greeting you. This was made with a 3D printer to my knowledge.
This ballroom maze was also at the entrance for those who chose to brave it. I did but sadly there is no video of me doing it although I did shoot a clip of the whole thing from the pathway you see to the right in this image. It was really cool.
A couple of days ago, I was sent this news by the fine folks handling the press resources for the mighty LEGO in honor of the upcoming “National Superhero Day”. Dig it.
This morning, the LEGO Group unveiled a new duo-pack of LEGO BrickHeadz inspired by the blockbuster Justice League™ movie – LEGO BrickHeadz Tactical Batman™ and Superman™. Available May 1, the set includes 209 pieces and recreates iconic details from the film, including Super Hero costumes and capes.
Piercing Ken Thoughts: I guess it was about a month ago that I shared some of the details and images from the LEGO Brickheadz collection from “Avengers: Infinity War” and if you missed that one click HERE to be up to speed. I don’t collect these particular creations myself but know quite a few LEGO-maniacs that love them and who could blame them. They all look so cool and if you are collecting them all you are going to have millions of creative possibilities. Perhaps merging these DC Comics film characters with that of the Marvel Cinematic Universe ones will be a fun idea. The upcoming “Avengers: Infinity War” looks amazing and let’s face it, “Justice League” was so far from a blockbuster it wasn’t funny. The film brought in the least amount of money across all of the shared universe films for Warner Brothers and they better get to work on fixing this but I digress. Do you like these newest LEGO BrickHeadz? Let me know down in the comments and feel free to order them care of the handy Amazon.com link down below.
The wonderful world of LEGO® has just announced a few more of the “Marvel BrickHeadz” from “Avengers: Infinity War” and these are all available on April 1 – Let’s check out the provided press release and images from the company. I’ll close out with some thoughts of course.
