LEGO 70736 Attack of the Morro Dragon Set 2015 Toy Fair

We’re just two and a half weeks from the biggest toy event of 2015: the International Toy Fair 2015 in New York City! But while the New York Toy Fair may be this year’s biggest toy show, Europe is already getting its own fair share of toy events to kick off the new year. While the 2015 Nuremberg Toy Fair in Germany won’t officially begin until tomorrow, some photos from the event are already beginning to circulate online: including several of the LEGO Ninjago 2015 sets, such as the all-new Morro Dragon and revisited Destiny’s Bounty sets!

LEGO Avengers Quinjet City Chase 76032 Hi-Res Photos!

76032 LEGO Avengers Quinjet Chase Set

With this being a quiet week (following last week’s blitzkrieg of LEGO news), I can finally dig in and continue to look at more of the LEGO Winter 2015 sets that are due out in the next one to two months. And the sets receiving the most buzz are, of course, the LEGO Avengers Age of Ultron sets. You might say “We just got a LEGO Quinjet movie three years ago–do we really need another?” But having spent some time examining this year’s LEGO Avengers Quinjet City Chase 76032 set, I think the answer is a resounding “yes”…

LEGO Attack on Avengers Tower 76038 Box

With the copious amount of surprise LEGO products for the second half of 2015 that popped up over the last few days, I haven’t had a chance to sit back and talk about some of the newly-revealed hi-res images of the most highly-anticipated sets coming in the first half of 2015. Chief among them is the largest one of the LEGO Marvel Avengers Age of Ultron sets (no, the Helicarrier won’t be in the movie, so the LEGO Helicarrier doesn’t not count). Coming our way later this winter–it’s the LEGO Attack on Avengers Tower 76038 set!

Just when we all thought that the Mystery Machine was going to be the only LEGO Scooby-Doo set to be unveiled before this 2015 New York Toy Fair, another new set has appeared! It’s the biggest and most expensive of all of this year’s Scooby Doo sets, and also the exclusive place to nab a LEGO Velma minifigure: it’s the LEGO Scooby-Doo Mystery Mansion 75904!

LEGO Scooby-Doo Mystery Machine 75902 Revealed!

LEGO Scooby-Doo Mystery Machine 75902 Set

If anyone had told me a year ago that there would be LEGO Scooby-Doo sets coming in 2015, I would have thought that they were out of their minds. But that was before LEGO became the most successful toy manufacturer in the world, and before we knew the Scooby-Doo franchise was getting ready for a resurrection (again). At the London Toy Fair 2015 this week, the 2015 LEGO Scooby Doo theme was finally confirmed. And today, we got our first look ever at a Scooby-Doo set: the LEGO Scooby-Doo Mystery Machine 75902!

LEGO The Hulk Buster Smash 76031 Set Hi-Res Photos!

LEGO The Hulkbuster Smash 76031 Box Avengers Age of Ultron

Though January 2015 has been an expensive month for LEGO fans, filled with new exclusives and new releases in popular themes like LEGO Star Wars, LEGO Chima and LEGO Justice League, many collectors are still feeling a bit of a void as they await the first LEGO Marvel 2015 sets. Themed for Avengers: Age of Ultron, the first 2015 LEGO Marvel sets still won’t arrive until late this winter. But as awesome as the LEGO 2015 catalog photos of the LEGO Avengers Age of Ultron sets were, I know plenty of fans have been dying to see some crisp, hi-res photos of the LEGO Marvel Age of Ultron sets. And while we still have to wait to buy it, the LEGO The Hulk Buster Smash 76031 photos have now appeared!

It’s hard for me to believe, but it’s almost been an entire year since I was in New York City for the the New York Toy Fair 2014! But while there’s less than a month until I head back to NYC for this year’s event, the fun has already started overseas!

The London Toy Fair 2015 took place this week, and the news is rolling in–including confirmation that the long-demanded LEGO Iron Spider Man and Ultimate Spider-Man Miles Morales minifigures are coming in LEGO Marvel sets this summer!

Hobbit Battle of Five Armies DVD Exclusive LEGO Minifigures!

Target Exclusive Hobbit Battle of Five Armies Combo Pack with LEGO Minifigures Bain Bard

Earlier this month, images leaked out from Hong Kong of a previously-unannounced LEGO Bain minifigure. With no new LEGO The Hobbit sets scheduled for release in 2015, it seemed almost certain that this exclusive Bain figure would be the pack-in for this year’s Target Exclusive The Hobbit: Battle of the Five Armies DVD/Blu-Ray Combo Pack. And as it so happens–it is! But why settle for one free LEGO Minifigure when you can have two?! A LEGO Bard the Bowman minifigure will also be included with the set!

LEGO Mixels Vampos Review & Photos 41534 (2015)

LEGO Mixels Vampos 41534 & Nixels Review

Although I don’t pick up all–or even most–of the LEGO Mixels sets released, I make it a point to always pick up the ones that I like the best. And from the 2015 LEGO Mixels Series 4 sets, the single Mixel I liked the best was the Glowkies Tribe bat, LEGO Vampos 41534. As soon as I saw images of Vampos, I thought he was irresistible. Now that I have him in-hand, is this cute vampire bat everything I’d hoped for?

LEGO Mixels Series 4 Mixel Max Figures Photos!

LEGO Mixels Series 4 Mixel Maxes Figures

I just don’t have the space (or money!) to buy absolutely every LEGO item that comes out that I like, so I’m forced to pick-and-choose my favorites from a lot of the LEGO themes out there. As such, I try to limit myself to 2-3 LEGO Mixels figures from each series that comes out, and I tend to forget about one of the main Mixels gimmicks: the fact that three members of each tribe in a series combine into a larger gestalt Mixels Max figure! But since readers asked after I spotted Series 4 Mixels in stores last week, I went back to the store to take some photos of the Max Mixels on the cases for LEGO Mixels Series 4…

LEGO Star Wars Ezra’s Speeder Bike Review 75090

LEGO Star Wars Ezra's Speeder Bike Review

Once the Star Wars Rebels cartoon series premiered in the fall, I was instantly ready to devour any Rebels toys I could get my mitts on. Sadly, there were only two LEGO Star Wars Rebels sets in 2014–but lockout, a bunch more were ready to launch as part of the LEGO Star Wars 2015 sets!

And because I prioritized completing my Rebels crew, 75090 LEGO Ezra’s Speeder Bike was one of the first sets I ordered this year. Was this set worth my excitement? Read on…
