Prelim Pics of Harry Potter LEGO Books & New Brickmasters

Yay!! Finally found them.  Figured the pics must have surfaced in order for bookstores to start placing their orders and finally found the prelim pics in the DK 2011 catalogue.

The good news? The Harry Potter Visual Dictionary (called ‘Building the Magical World’ in the catalogue) comes with an exclusive minifig. The bad news? From the current prelim image, it looks to be yet another Harry Potter minifig… anyway remember that the jacket cover isn’t final yet.

The Harry Potter Sticker book isn’t that interesting… nothing new on the cover that we haven’t seen before.

I’ve also included the prelim pics for the new City & NinjaGo Brickmasters.  Not much to speculate from the NinjaGo Brickmaster… just that you’ll probably get another ninja.  For the City Brickmaster tho, it looks to be very much a police themed set with a criminal minifig, a policeman minifig, a car and a small helicopter.

Other interesting stuff from the website? It sheds some light on how these books will be promoted/marketed:
• Launch parties at book stores across the country
• Online advertising
• Feature at San Diego Comic Con
• Feature at New York Comic Con
• Cross promote with other Harry Potter™ and LEGO licensees
• Book Trailer
• Outreach to blogs and fansites
• Feature on DK.com LEGO boutique
• E-newsletter feature

Outreach to blogs? Hmm… so looks like I’m giving them free publicity!  Anyone wants to outreach to me???  I’m up for book reviews… hehe.  😀

Btw the DK Winter 2011 Catalogue shows some junior LEGO books for the kids and the LEGO City and Star Wars sticker books.  Nothing that interest me so did not bother to copy them.  Feel free to click on the link to browse tho.  For Pirates of the Caribbean fans, there is a visual guide book coming (NOT LEGO, it’s a movie tie-in).  Useful for MOCs and dioramas perhaps? 🙂  I do love the DK books for the great pics and explanations that accompanies the guide books.

One more thing… the updated 2011 Fantasia Verlag LEGO Collector book looks to be delayed till Q2’2011 from Weltbild.de.  No indication of a limited edition based on my search.  Anyone knows better, pls let me know k?

Anyway, here they are… enjoy! (book title links to Book Depository or Amazon – you can click on the catalogue link at the bottom if you wanna read the DK catalogue)
