May 2015 LEGO Store Calendar Deals Promos & Events!

May 2015 LEGO Store Calendar LEGO Star Wars May the 4th 2015

Ordinarily I like to wait for LEGO to post the super hi-res LEGO Store Calendars for the next month before I talk about what’s coming up at the LEGO Stores, but I ended up getting burned by that last month when they didn’t post the next month’s calendar for many days after it was already available in stores (and I ended up going and picking up the calendar myself to scan). So this month, I’m going to talk about the upcoming deals, promos and events first, and add the hi-res images later. And the May 2015 LEGO Store Calendar is a good one, including the happenings for May the 4th 2015 and more!

LEGO Scooby-Doo Mystery Plane Adventures Photos Preview!

LEGO Scooby-Doo Mystery Plane Adventures Box

Following up on the in-depth look at the LEGO Scooby-Doo Haunted Lighthouse 75903 set from yesterday, today I’m going to take a look at another one of Summer 2015 Scooby-Doo sets that I previously only took a cursory glance at. While it’s the second-smallest set in the theme, it’s still pretty packed with fun and wackiness: it’s the LEGO Scooby-Doo Mystery Plane Adventures 75901 set!

LEGO Scooby-Doo Haunted Lighthouse 75903 Box

LEGO really did try valiantly to keep the majority of the LEGO Scooby-Doo sets under wraps until the 2015 New York Toy Fair, but alas–it was not to be. But while I initially only got to talk about a small, low-quality image, I had the opportunity to go up-close and take a ton of hi-res photos of the LEGO Scooby-Doo Haunted Lighthouse 75903 set!

LEGO Jurassic World Raptor Escape 75920 Revealed & Photos!

LEGO Jurassic World Raptor Escape 75920 Summer 2015 Set

Just when I thought it was safe to travel back into the wilderness, an unexpected pair of clever girls have struck!

I thought that I had covered all of the LEGO Jurassic World sets coming to stores this summer, but I was mistaken–there’s a sixth and final set on the way: the retailer exclusive LEGO Raptor Escape 75920 has now appeared! And it’s come packing the final two members of the Raptor Squad: Echo and Charlie!

Hobbit 3 Blu-Ray with Exclusive Bain Minifigure Released!

Target Exclusive LEGO Hobbit Battle of Five Armies Combo Pack Released

I outright detested the third Hobbit movie. I’ll be a Peter Jackson fan for life for his work on the Lord of the Rings trilogy (and to some extent his first two Hobbit films), but The Hobbit: The Battle of Five Armies was a huge disappointment and a real dud in my opinion. So you would probably expect that I would be nowhere near a store at 9AM on the morning the Hobbit: Battle of Five Armies DVD/Blu-Ray set is released. But you would be wrong. Because as much as I hate that movie, I love exclusive minifigures more: the Target Exclusive Hobbit 3 Blu-Ray with Bard and exclusive Bain minifigures has now been released!

60099 LEGO City 2015 Advent Calendar Box

I’m feeling like I could use a little bit of holiday cheer this week (no, St. Patrick’s Day does not count), so I think it’s time to look way ahead to the holiday season once again and look at the second of three 2015 LEGO Advent Calendars. Last month I discussed the LEGO Star Wars 2015 Advent Calendar, and this time it’s the classic LEGO City 2015 Advent Calendar 60099!

LEGO Ninjago Summer 2015 Sets: Airjitzu Flyers Photos!

70741 Airjitzu Cole Flyer LEGO Ninjago Summer 2015 Set

Tonight I was going through my unused cache of photos from the LEGO Booth at New York Toy Fair 2015, and was totally stunned by the sheer number of sets I still haven’t talked about, despite the dozens of articles I’ve already written based off the reveals from the event!

And thus, I decided it was time to knock out another half-dozen sets right away by talking about this summer’s new LEGO Ninjago Summer 2015 sets sub-line: the LEGO Ninjago Airjitzu Flyer sets!

Fall 2015 LEGO Mixels Series 6 Photos Preview!

LEGO Mixels Series 6 Sets Revealed at New York Toy Fair 2015

Last night I talked about the only Mixels figures coming this summer: LEGO Mixels Series 5. But that’s not the end of Mixels toys for this year! We don’t usually get new sets in mid-fall, but this time we are.

Coming in October 2015, it’s the final known series of Mixels: LEGO Mixels Series 6! And not only will the series give us another pair of all-new tribes, but the grossest Mixels tribe is also back for another go: the second trio of members of the Mixels Glorp Corp tribe!

Summer 2015 LEGO Mixels Series 5 Sets Photos Preview!

41544 Tungster LEGO Mixels Lixsters Figure Set

One theme that had all of its new upcoming 2015 sets debuted at the New York Toy Fair 2015 that I haven’t had a chance to talk about yet at all is one of my favorite niche themes: the Summer 2015 LEGO Mixels sets! We’ll have two more series of Mixels before the end of the year, with the next coming in June 2015!

And lest you be worried about the new sets just being rehashes of past Mixel ideas, have no fear: LEGO Mixels Series 5 will include two totally-new Mixels tribes!

LEGO Jurassic World Indominus Rex Breakout 75919 New York Toy Fair 2015

Today is a big day for LEGO Jurassic Park fans! Not only did the first real LEGO Jurassic World video game gameplay trailer hit the internet today (and it looks good), but it’s also the day I’ll be wrapping up my New York Toy Fair 2015 LEGO Jurassic World coverage with all of my remaining hi-res photos of the final set that was revealed at the event last month.

I saved the best, largest and most expensive set for last: the LEGO Jurassic World Indominus Rex Breakout 75919!

Jurassic World LEGO Pteranodon Capture 75915 Set Preview!

Jurassic World LEGO Pteranodon Capture 75915 Box

Continuing on with my looks at the upcoming LEGO Jurassic World sets (which will be here in under a month and a half!), today I’m looking at the smallest Jurassic World set, which also happens to be unique amongst all of its brethren. Why? Because while it does include a large flying reptile, it doesn’t contain a (true) dinosaur at all–the LEGO Pteranodon Capture 75915!
