Fraggle Rock Omnibus Coming Soon!

Archaia will be collecting their anthology Fraggle comics in a new hard cover Omnibus.

Sadly though, the collection will not include the “Journey to the Everspring” miniseries.

It won't be out until March, but you can pre-order it now from Amazon for $12.68  and save $7 off the cover price.

Thanks to our friends at Tough Pigs for the heads up.

The Fraggle Rock Omnibus will collect all of the anthology Fraggle comics (so, no classic Fraggle comics from the ’80s or the “Journey to the Everspring” miniseries). It will only cost $19.99, and it will be in stores next March, 2018.

The Power of the Dark Crystal #8 is available now at comic shops and through Amazon.

Tell LEGO How to Get to Sesame Street!

Muppet fan Ivan Guerrero recently designed a LEGO set based on Sesame Street for "LEGO Ideas." 

If his design gets over 10,000 votes on the LEGO Ideas page, it stands the chance of being produced as an official LEGO product. It would still need approval from Sesame Workshop, of course but when you see his designs, and all the details he put into it, it would be hard for them not to.

Previous fan-made sets based on Back to the Future, Ghostbusters, The Big Bang Theory, Doctor Who, The Beatles, Voltron, NASA, have all been produced so Ivan's Sesame Street design has a good shot.

You can check out his design and vote by visiting the LEGO Ideas page.

Thanks for sharing this Ivan, now let's make sure he idea gets all the votes he can get.
