LEGO Jurassic World Sets Summer 2015 Teaser Photo Revealed!

LEGO Jurassic World Sets Teaser Photo LEGO 2015 Catalog

Though we got to see our very first leaked images of the LEGO Jurassic Park dinosaurs last month via some illegally-sold toys on Taobao, LEGO has had its proverbial lips zipped about the very existence of the license. But now, finally, LEGO has published their first official image confirming the impending Jurassic World LEGO theme arriving in Summer 2015! We’re still about half a year away from seeing the sets in stores, but the official LEGO Catalog for the first half of 2015 does give us our first teaser!

LEGO 76041 Burglary at the Hydra Fortress Set with Quicksilver Figure

We’re in the home stretch of our discussions of the Spring 2015 LEGO Avengers Age of Ultron sets, and today we’re looking at a set that gives us that not only gives us our first Marvel Cinematic Universe villainous hideout, but also a pair of highly desirable exclusive minifigures! If you want the LEGO Quicksilver and Baron Von Strucker minifigures, then in the spring you’ll be picking up the Avengers Age of Ultron LEGO Hydra Fortress 76041 set!

Avengers Age of Ultron LEGO Duel with Hydra 76030 Set!

Avengers Age of Ultron LEGO 76030 Duel with Hydra Set

Moving on from my discussions of the sets likely to be the most popular in the LEGO Avengers Age of Ultron theme, today I’ll be chatting about the set that I think will almost unquestionably be the least popular one of the half-dozen LEGO Marvel Age of Ultron sets coming out in April 2015. It contains no unique characters not available in any other set, and no vehicles that are likely to become iconic, but perhaps its low price will help it sell adequately anyway: it’s the LEGO Avengers Duel with Hydra 76030 set!

LEGO Avengers Tower Attack 76038 Set Photos Preview!

76038 LEGO Attack on Avengers Tower Set

The big news this week in the LEGO world is indisputably the surprise unveiling of the LEGO Avengers Age of Ultron sets that happened to kick off the week. Earlier this week I talked about the new 76032 LEGO Avengers Quinjet Chase set, containing the most iconic Marvel vehicle (that isn’t a Helicarrier).

And now it’s time to dig in once again and discuss the most iconic locale in the Marvel Cinematic Universe–formerly Stark Tower and now home to Earth’s Mightiest Heroes–it’s the LEGO Avengers Tower Attack 76038 set!

LEGO Movie Double-Decker Couch 70818 Set Box

I feel like I’ve been talking about the LEGO 2015 sets for eternity now. But just talking about my favorite upcoming sets and not being able to buy them (or at least pre-order them) has definitely been wearing my patience thin. But relief has arrived! Dozens of 2015 LEGO sets are now available for order online, including the 2015 LEGO Star Wars sets, LEGO Movie sets, LEGO DC Super Heroes sets, LEGO Bionicle Sets and more!

LEGO Avengers Quinjet Chase 76032 Set! Vision Minifigure!

LEGO 76032 Avengers Quinjet Chase Set Revealed

Last night I posted about the complete lineup of mass-release LEGO Marvel Avengers Age of Ultron sets, and now it’s time to step back and take a close look at the sets, one at a time!

Of the six sets, one of them could be considered a “rehash” (as it focuses on a vehicle that was released in LEGO form just a few years ago), but I’m going to consider it an “upgrade” instead–it’s the LEGO The Avengers Quinjet Chase 76032 set, with exclusive LEGO Vision minifigure!

LEGO Avengers Age of Ultron Sets Revealed & Photos!

LEGO Avengers 2 Sets Revealed

LEGO has done a superb job of keeping the LEGO Marvel 2015 sets under wraps, with basically zero images of any of the sets leaking out until now (no, the teaser they put in their LEGO Designer video for the LEGO Helicarrier absolutely does not count).

But the Avengers: Age of Ultron movie is now under half a year away, and it appears that the time for secrecy is at an end! Via their own German catalog, LEGO has now revealed a half-dozen 2015 LEGO Avengers Age of Ultron sets!

LEGO Research Institute 21110 Set Back In Stock Online!

LEGO 21110 Research Institute Set LEGO ideas #8

UPDATE 12/12/2014: It’s taken a few months, but the LEGO Research Institute set is now back in stock and available for order online!

Earlier this summer, LEGO announced both the name change of LEGO CUUSOO to “LEGO Ideas” and that the next fan-designed concept that would be produced would be that of the female minifigures set designed by Alatariel Elensar.

I really didn’t expect that LEGO would have the finished product ready to be shown off at all until late summer or early fall, but it appears LEGO was farther along with the set than I thought! The LEGO Research Institute 21110 set has now been fully revealed!

LEGO Frozen Elsa’s Castle 41062 Set Released in Stores!

LEGO Frozen 41062 Set Released Box

Rarely is a LEGO set that isn’t some sort of exclusive and doesn’t have “LEGO Star Wars” in the name end up being one of the absolute most-anticipated LEGO sets of the year, and never has one of those sets contained mini-dolls instead of minifigures. But there’s a first time for everything, and this is it, Frozen fans! What you’ve all been waiting for since the set was announced in the fall: I haven’t found it yet myself, but various online sellers have now received and started selling the LEGO Frozen Elsa’s Castle 41062 set!

2015 LEGO Elves Treetop Hideaway 41075 Set Revealed!

LEGO Elves Treetop Hideaway 41075 Set January 2015 Release

Over the weekend I chatted up a storm about the upcoming LEGO Elves Azari’s Bakery 41074 set, but that’s not the only LEGO Elves set that made its grand debut online in the last few days. In fact, the final one of the LEGO 2015 Elves sets to be revealed is actually the largest, most grandiose and expensive one of them all–and the only one of the Elves sets including a human mini-doll: it’s the 505-piece LEGO Elves Treetop Hideaway 41075!

LEGO Elves Azari and The Magical Bakery 41074 Revealed!

LEGO Elves Azari and The Magical Bakery 41074 Box

Among the half a billion (that’s slight hyperbole) sets that LEGO is bringing out in 2015, there’s a few new and returning themes mixed in. One of these things is the new-for-2015 LEGO Elves theme, which turned out to be something very different from what most folks had initially been expecting when they heard the word “Elves”. While we got our first glimpses at most of the 2015 LEGO Elves sets many weeks ago, this weekend we got our initial look at the final two sets in the first wave, as well as the unique packaging for the LEGO Elves sets…

LEGO Star Wars in 100 Scenes

At this point, there are dozens of LEGO books available on the market and hundreds of Star Wars books out there. So you might think that there’s nothing new than a LEGO Star Wars book could have to offer.

But the creative geniuses over at DK Publishing have lined up a fresh and fun new book for us for 2015–the LEGO Star Wars in 100 Scenes Book is now available for order!

LEGO Chima 2015 Vultrix’s Sky Scavenger Set Revealed & Photos!

LEGO 70228 Vultrix's Sky Scavenger Set Box

There’s a lot of doom and gloom swirling about in LEGO Legends of Chima fandom, as rumors have begun that 2015 could be the last year for the quasi-beloved LEGO Chima theme. Chima has been one of my surprise favorite LEGO themes since its introduction, so I would be very heartbroken to see it go if the rumors are true. That said, if we are approaching the end of LEGO Legends of Chima, you wouldn’t know it by the sheer number of new sets coming in January 2015–and another one has just been revealed: it’s the LEGO Chima Vultrix’s Sky Scavenger 70228!

LEGO Movie STARFIGHTER! & Master Builder T-Shirts! 24 Hours!

LEGO Movie Benny Star Wars Starfighter Spaceship Teefury T-Shirt

The runaway success of The LEGO Movie earlier this year has led to LEGO being more mainstream popular than it ever has before! Not only has this led to higher sales of actual LEGO toy sets, but it’s also led to a lot of spinoff merchandise that we typically wouldn’t get–including some very fun and creative limited-edition LEGO T-Shirts throughout the year! It’s been a while since the last ones were released, but now we’ve got our chance to order two very cool LEGO Movie inspired T-Shirts until midnight tonight–the $11 “Master Builders Union” and “STARFIGHTER!

LEGO Ninjago Brown Ninja Polybag Promo Released in the US!

LEGO Ninjago Dareth vs. Nindroid Polybag Set Released

I mentioned a couple days ago that the LEGO marketplace is currently engaged in a vicious struggle, with every big retailer vying for our LEGO dollars. This battle has led to ubiquitous free promo LEGO sets available over the past month or so, including the long-awaited LEGO Rocket Raccoon polybag that was free at Toys R Us at the end of November. But Toys R Us isn’t done with us (and our dollars) yet! Though it arrived internationally a couple months ago, Toys R Us USA had one more promo up their sleeve that they were holding onto: the 5002124 LEGO Ninjago Dareth vs. Nindroid polybag is now available as a free promo in the United States!
