2016 LEGO DC Mighty Micros Sets Photos Preview!

LEGO DC 2016 Robin vs Bane Mighty Micros 76062 Set

Over the weekend, I posted my photos preview of the LEGO Marvel Mighty Micros sets over on my Marvel Toys blog. While the Star Wars Micro-Fighters really grew on me, I thought the Marvel Mighty Micros were a bit too, well… wacky. But it turns out that while most Marvel fans weren’t thrilled about it, many LEGO fans are pretty excited about this new sub-theme, so now, let’s take a look at the trio of LEGO DC Mighty Micros sets!

LEGO Elves 2016 Sets List & Photos Preview! DRAGONS!

LEGO Elves 2016 Sets Dragons Theme

LEGO Elves got off to a good start this year, but I was wondering what compelling twist TLG could put on the theme in order to keep the momentum going strong in 2016.

Well, the simple answer can be summarized in one word: Dragons! The LEGO Elves 2016 sets definitely won’t just feel like slightly more colorful Friends set with 2016’s heavy emphasis on brick-built Dragons!

LEGO Angry Birds Movie Sets Pig Castle

During this past week, TLG uploaded the entire North America Winter 2016 LEGO Catalog, giving us our first official looks at dozens and dozens of sets that had previously only been heard about from leaks and rumors. But there was one incoming theme that had been officially confirmed that was notable by its absence from the American catalog… but not the Russian catalog! This is definitely not going to be a theme for everyone, but the 2016 LEGO Angry Birds sets have now been revealed!

75142 LEGO Star Wars 2016 Homing Spider Droid Box

A couple weeks back I was lamenting the absence of prequel sets in the Winter 2016 LEGO Star Wars sets wave, with only Obi-Wan’s Jedi Interceptor being a mass release item. But there is another (prequels set)! It’s a store exclusive and won’t be sold everywhere, but the LEGO Star Wars 2016 Homing Spider Droid 75142 set will also be available in just a few short weeks!

LEGO Batman v Superman Clash of the Heroes 76044 Revealed!

LEGO Clash of the Heroes Set Batman v Superman

Happy Star Wars Day! It seems a bit ironic, but as things turn out, I’ve already talked about all of the LEGO Star Wars Winter 2016 sets, so there’s nothing Star Wars-related for me to discuss on this momentous day. Alas! But there’s plenty to discuss on the superhero-ing front, including the official reveals of the last Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice set! It’s already been found in stores by some lucky builders, and now TLG has officially announced the 2016 LEGO Clash of the Heroes 76044 set!

LEGO Cosmic Boy Minifigure with DC Justice League Cosmic Clash Movie

Photos leaked out months and months ago revealing a previously-unannounced LEGO Cosmic Boy minifigure, representing one of the three founding members of the Legion of Super-Heroes.

LEGO Ninjago 2016 Jay's Elemental Dragon 70602 Set Box

We’re just three weeks out from the grand launch of the vast majority of LEGO 2016 sets, but there’s at least one theme that I haven’t touched upon at all yet: Ninjago! As we inch ever closer to the upcoming Ninjago movie hitting theaters, the series continues in full force next year. And the Ninjago theme for the first half of 2016 is a continuation of what we saw at San Diego Comic Con 2015–Sky Pirates! And of this new wave of Sky Pirates set, there’s one that caught my attention more than any other: Jay’s Elemental Dragon 70602!

LEGO Disney Minifigures Series Character List Revealed?

LEGO Disney Minifigures Series

LEGO has been releasing sets and Minifigures for Disney properties such as Star Wars, Marvel and Frozen for years now, so it didn’t surprise me much at all when I heard that a LEGO Disney Minifigures Series 71012 was coming in spring 2016. And while the set hasn’t been officially confirmed yet by TLG, it might as well be now that retailers have leaked the character list, which includes favorites like Mickey Mouse, Aladdin, Lilo & Stitch and more!

LEGO Batman vs. Superman Kryptonite Interception 76045 Box

Though I would be perfectly content to discuss the new winter 2016 LEGO Star Wars sets every day, there’s another movie coming out in just a few months that a “few” folks are excited about, so today let’s turn our attention to the DC Universe! We first saw a sneak peek at the new Batmobile way back in July, and now the complete LEGO Batman v Superman Kryptonite Interception 76045 set has been revealed!

LEGO Star Wars 2016 Obi-Wan’s Jedi Interceptor Photos!

LEGO Star Wars 75135 Obi-Wan's Jedi Interceptor Set

It’s no secret that Disney and Lucasfilm want people–and merchandisers–to forget about the Star Wars prequels. That’s why we saw less prequels toys released in 2015 than ever before. And in winter 2016, there will be just one LEGO Star Wars prequels set released. Luckily, it’s one that many collectors have been waiting a decade for: LEGO Star Wars Obi-Wan’s Jedi Interceptor takes flight this winter!

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!

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!
