Bricks of the Mouse Guard Kickstarter


Crazy Bricks is about to wrap up another Kickstarter project. This time they are doing the Mouse Guard. Mouse Guard is a graphic novel series by David Petersen. I have not read the series but the artwork is beautiful.

 In Mouse Guard, mice struggle to live safely and prosper among all of the world’s harsh conditions and predators. Thus the Mouse Guard was formed. They are not simply soldiers that fight off intruders; rather, they are guides for common mice looking to journey without confrontation from one hidden mouse village to another.

 

The sets will include various mouse heads and character accessories. The head colors are tan, grey, reddish-brown, and dark brown. The accessories are two styles of flagons, a cool axe, a lantern on a staff, and a sword. I really like the looks of these flagons. I want to get a bunch of these for my minifigs when they are released next year.

Each accessories set comes in your choice of one of three colors - Gun-Metal Grey, Brown,  or Gold

Stretch Goals

They already have added some pre stretch goal items. Each set will include a bonus black mouse head and a stove pipe hat. They hit the first stretch goal bonus, an extra flagon. The next goal in another bonus flagon. AT $25,000 they add a random item, And if they hit $30,000 they plan for add ons.

1. We’ve teamed up with the artists at BrickArms, CitizenBrick and Cape Madness to produce fully-realized custom Mouse Guard Minifigures of your favorite Mouse Guard Heroes!  These will include pad-printed custom torsos, limited-edition colored weapons, Hero length capes, 10th Anniversary Mouse Guard packaging and more!

2. 1 x 8 Mouse Guard Badge Bricks so you can show your love of the Guard!

3. You can ADD ON additional Crates of the Matriarch!

They have a target date of March 2015 to have the Mouse Guard bricks ready for the tenth anniversary of the Mouse Guard Series. Alice Finch and Washington state based Lego User Group, ARCHLUG plan to build a World of Mouse Guard MOC at Seattle’s Emerald City Comic Con. Alice Finch built Hogwarts Castle out of 400,000 LEGO bricks. She displayed at BrickCon 2012.

The Kickstarter ends late Sunday night. It has already been funded so they stretching for the extra goals. They are less tan 2,000 away from a second bonus tankard in every set.

I supported Crazy Brick’s previous kickstarter event for the Munchkin Bricks. I hope to have those bricks soon. I’ve been looking forward to them for a while.

LEGO Rocket Raccoon at Toys R Us.


The Rocket Raccoon (#5002154) polybag is finally available at Toys R Us in the US. It is not a gift with purchase either you can just buy the Rocket minifigure for $4.99. Rocket is in the red uniform the Guardians wore in the later part of the movie. The set also has a baby Groot figure, and some alternative stickers for the Milano (#76021) ship.  Previously this figure was part of a ComicCon exclusive set.

rocket raccoon lego 5002145I like this version of Rocket. I almost had him early. I was at a Toys R Us the other day. The bags were hanging on an end cap with a price label. But when I got up front the register wouldn’t allow the cashier to ring it. She called a manager who said they couldn’t sell it till the 16th. He said they weren’t suppose to be out yet and asked where I found it.

I made a trip today to pick it up. I  went the TRU that is closer to home. They didn’t have them on the slaesfloor. Instead they were at the service desk you just have to ask. I’m guessing they kept the there to avoid theft and scalpers. I’ve already seen people posting bags of them online and reselling them. I’m ok if you pick up an extra one or two but really leave some for everybody else.

UPDATE: I checked the TRU that had stocked them early. They had them on the salefloor instead of behind the counter. Also there are some reports that some TRUs are holding them off the floor till this weekend.

TRU TMNT LEGO Promo

Toys R us does have a LEGO Polybag promo this week. Buy $30 or more of LEGO and get a free TMNT mini Shellraiser polybag (#084594).
