LEGO Star Wars 2016 Droid Escape Pod 75136! Jawas!

2016 LEGO Star Wars Droid Escape Pod Box

With the merchandising juggernaut that is Star Wars: The Force Awakens almost upon us, I really and truly expected the January 2016 LEGO Star Wars sets to be centered on Episode VII. Instead, we’re getting sets from the prequels, the new movies, Rebels, Battlefront–and yes, even the original trilogy! Over the weekend I talked about the long-awaited Carbon-Freezing Chamber, and today we’ve got the new LEGO Star Wars Droid Escape Pod 75136–with Jawa Minifigures!!

2016 LEGO Star Wars Resistance Troop Transporter Photos!

2016 LEGO Star Wars Resistance Troop Transport Box

Yesterday I talked about one of the major LEGO Star Wars The Force Awakens winter 2016 sets that that’s due out in stores in the next 1-2 months, the Battle on Takodana set with Unmasked Kylo Ren minifigure. But as a great being once said: “There is another.” And oddly enough, the “another” that Yoda was talking about is actually part of the “another” that I’m talking about: the LEGO Star Wars Resistance Troop Transport 75140 set–with old Princess Leia minifigure–has now been revealed!

2016 LEGO Star Wars Carbon-Freezing Chamber Photos!

LEGO Star Wars Carbon-Freezing Chamber Box 2016

January 2016 is going to be a good month for Star Wars fans, as in the wake of “The Force Awakens”, a whopping twenty-four LEGO Star Wars sets are due for release! The set I expect to be most popular with older collectors isn’t from Episode VII (or any new media), however, and certainly isn’t the biggest set being released. It’s one of just two sets from the Original Trilogy, and it’s going to warm (or freeze) a lot hearts: the 2016 LEGO Star Wars Carbon-Freezing Chamber 75137!

LEGO Star Wars Battle on Takodana! Kylo Ren Unmasked!

LEGO Star Wars Battle on Takodana 75139 Box

Among the many compelling mysteries fans are dying to have answered in the Star Wars: The Force Awakens movie next month is the true identity and background of the mysterious, Sith-like Kylo Ren. Following the release of the full Episode VII trailer and its absence of a certain Jedi Master, crazy rumors started swirling about Kylo Ren potentially being Luke Skywalker. Photos from the set seemed to disprove those allegations, but now we can officially confirm it via the merch: the 2016 LEGO Star Wars Battle of Takodana 75139 set gives us the first-ever unmasked Kylo Ren figure–and he’s definitely not Luke Skywalker!

LEGO Star Wars Microfighters The Ghost 75127 Box

When it rains, it pours! And now we can add Star Wars to the list of themes having Winter 2016 LEGO sets photos pouring this week. The Star Wars Microfighters were a sub-line that I honestly thought was going to bomb in stores, but it turned out that these low-priced, chibi-fied Star Wars vehicles were a major hit with kids and many collectors. And now, they’re back for another round: the LEGO Star Wars 2016 Microfighters sets have now been revealed–along with the winter’s only regular-sized Rebels set!

LEGO Architecture 2016 Sets! New York City! Venice! Berlin!

LEGO Architecture New York City 21028 Box

LEGO Architecture remains one of the most unique themes that TLG produces, with a limited number of retail chains carrying the line and only a handful of sets being released each year. But while Architecture has been restricted in the past to giving us some great builds of famous buildings, TLG is switching things up in 2016! Why settle for one building from the most recognizable cities in the world, when you can have a whole skyline?! Coming winter 2016: LEGO Architecture New York City, Berlin and Venice cityscape sets!

2016 LEGO City Prison Island 60130 Set Box

Last week I talked about one of the best values in the LEGO 2016 winter sets, the Prison Island Starter Set. But hey, what good’s a Prison Island Starter Set without the big kahuna itself to pair it with, right? And while last week photos hadn’t surfaced yet of the main event, they have now, so let’s take a look–the immense (and immensely fun) LEGO Prison Island 60130 set has now been revealed!

The mega-dump of Winter 2015 LEGO sets photos that we’ve been waiting for for the past month-and-a-half has finally rolled out, and with it has come our first hi-res images of the entire first wave of 2016’s newest major theme, LEGO Nexo Knights! I am more than a little bit skeptical of this medieval/sci-fi mash-up of a theme, but some of the sets are just so crazy, they’re downright amazing! And one of those sets is the Nexo Knight’s The King’s Mech 70327, which is exactly what it sounds like…
