Lego recently unveiled its Detective’s Office set which included a video that may have held a sneak peek at a rumored S.H.I.E.L.D. Helicarrier. GrooveBricks caught it at the very beginning of the video, hidden in the letter “G” and visible for just a second.

Back on September 8th, the Avengers Helicarrier managed to garner the 10,000 votes that Lego Ideas requires before a project can be considered for production, but there’s been no official word thus far. Perhaps this glimpse means it’s already a done deal. Rumors have the set coming out in March at a price of $349.99 which would make it one of the biggest and most expensive sets they’ve ever created.

The Lego Detective’s Office set, due out in January (for $159.99), has a fantastic level of detail for the set’s intrepid gumshoe. This is the tenth modular building that Lego has released and it comes with six minifigures along with hidden trap doors and secret stash barrels. The city block includes the second-floor detective’s office, a barbershop and a pool hall that will provide for hours of creative play for kids or adults.

See more pictures and a video after the break that explains more about the secret candy smuggling operation going on right under the detective’s nonexistent nose.

This letter is real, not some photoshopped wish. It was uploaded by redditor Fryd_ after he found it while playing with his niece and nephew. He told BuzzFeed:

I came across the pamphlet whilst playing Lego with my niece & nephew at their Grandma’s house and it struck me as particularly modern message for something written 40 years ago. I thought the toy-makers of today could learn a thing or two!

It’s a beautiful message and rings just as true today as the day that it was tucked inside a brand new box of Lego over 40 years ago.

Y’know how I’ve been saying that Funko just keep making things that cause me to want to throw my money at the computer? They just did it again.

These Star Trek: The Next Generation POP! Vinyl figures includes the most insanely adorable Locutus of Borg I have ever seen. Riker’s beard, Picard’s bald head, Geordi’s Visor, Deanna’s purple eyeshadow – they’re all so frakkin’ cute that I can’t take it.

They’re estimated to arrive in March of 2015 and you can pre-order now.

Head after the break and, remember, I warned you.

Redditor neala963‘s son has a Star-Lord action figure, but is missing the other characters from Guardians of the Galaxy. He overcame this obstacle by improvising with a random plastic tree and raccoon from who knows which playset he had in his toy box. You’ve got to give the kid credit for his creativity.

Redditors took it a step further suggesting some great additional characters. Check those out after the break…

Whether aliens are real or not is still up for debate, but the stories are true about Funko’s new Pop! X-Files collection. They’ve managed to capture paranormal happenings in vinyl form. The cute take on the series features figures of Fox Mulder, Dana Scully, The Cigarette Smoking Man, and Alien. The Mulder and Scully toys even have little badges. Adorable.

See the rest of the line-up after the break.

Okay, seriously, I give up. I just need to accept that Funko is on a mission to take over the world and prepare to tithe a percentage of my paycheck to them on a monthly basis. Because, seriously, they just keep making things that cause me to make grabby hands!

Just when I was getting over the Big Trouble in Little China POP!s and the Warcraft POP!s, they announce a new line of POP!s based on The Matrix.

Teeny Trinity is the new best thing ever.

The only upside here is that they’re not expected until March of 2015, but you can pre-order now.

Head after the break to check out the rest of the figures.

jurassic world lego 1

Director Colin Trevorrow has stated that the upcoming Jurassic World will feature a new dinosaur made by the park’s geneticists. Newly leaked photos of LEGO sets featuring Jurassic World’s dinosaurs could showcase that creation, which has been dubbed the “D-Rex”. Chinese LEGO store Taobao posted the images online, and while we don’t have details to accompany the pictures, the dinosaur above sure looks like something different. I can’t wait to see that dinosaur on the big screen.

See more photos of the brick dinos after the break.

lego minecraft 1

Minecraft is all about building locations and characters with blocks so it’s basically a match made in heaven for LEGO. We got a first look at the sets back in August, and now they’re available to order. You can choose between the Mine, the Cave, the Farm, and more. If you want ‘em, I recommend purchasing them as soon as you can. Plus, there’s a limit of five sets per order.

funko lilo & stitch 1

The next Disney characters Funko is touching with their magic wand of cuteness are from Lilo & Stitch! They’re releasing three Pop! vinyl figures featuring Stitch 626, Lilo (she comes with a camera to capture photos of tourists), and Scrump. Is there a special shelving system for the 3 3/4 inch Pop! figures yet? It seems like there should be. Someone Kickstart that.

Pre-order now to receive the toys in January.

See the Lilo and Scrump figures after the break.
