LEGO Spider-Man vs. The Venom Symbiote Polybag Set!

LEGO Spider-Man vs. The Venom Symbiote Polybag Set

LEGO is a worldwide phenomenon as far as toys go, and that means that new sets are discovered all over the world all the time–not just in “the usual countries” like England and the United States. And the newest example of this is a previously-unseen (and totally cool) LEGO Marvel set that’s just turned up for sale online in the Republic of Croatia: the LEGO Spider-Man vs. The Venom Symbiote 30448 Polybag set!

LEGO Elves 2016 Fire Dragon’s Lava Cave 41175 Set Photos!

LEGO 41175 Fire Dragon's Lava Cave Box Elves Winter 2016 Set

Although I really liked the adventurousness and the colors and elements in the LEGO Elves theme when it debuted last year, I didn’t outright love any of the actual sets in the theme just yet. But all that’s changing with this year’s fresh wave of Elves sets! Whereas most themes have already had their first wave of new toys released earlier this month, Elves fans are going to have to wait a wee bit longer. But it’s going to be worth the wait, as evident by the LEGO Elves Fire Dragon’s Lava Cave 41175 and the rest of this winter’s sets!

LEGO Civil War Black Panther Pursuit 76047 Photos Preview!

LEGO Captain America Ciivl War Black Panther Pursuit 76047 Box

Although “Captain America: The Winter Soldier” is one of the most popular and renowned movies in the whole Marvel Cinematic Universe, it was a pretty big let-down for LEGO fans, as there were exactly zero boxed sets released for the blockbuster movie. But TLG isn’t making that same mistake again, as they’ve got three sets on deck for “Captain America: Civil War”–and the LEGO Black Panther Pursuit 76047 set will give us our first mass-release Winter Soldier and Black Panther minifigures!

LEGO 2016 Sets Released! LEGO Store Photos & Report!

LEGO Ghostbusters Firehouse Headquarters Set Released

Because I am a crazy person, despite the fact that I stayed up last night and bought the new LEGO Brick Bank Modular Building from [email protected] at the stroke of midnight and ordered most of the rest of the new LEGO 2016 sets from Amazon with free shipping, I still set my alarm clock for bright and early so that I could be at the nearest LEGO Store first thing in the morning. Why? So that I could take photos of all the newly-released sets, of course! (And, well… maybe so my resolve could soften and I could pick up a few that I didn’t want to order online and have to wait for…)

LEGO Batman 2016 Gotham City Cycle Chase Set Photos!

LEGO Suicide Squad DC Set Batman Gotham City Cycle Chase

I had been planning on not discussing the final Winter 2015 LEGO DC Superheroes set until more than one photo of the set had come out, but sharp-eyed readers noticed the set right away in my photos preview of the DC Mighty Micros sets yesterday and demanded to hear more. And thus, though we only have one image to go on–for now–let’s take a look at the sole comics-based LEGO Batman set coming this winter: it’s the Suicide Squad-inspired LEGO Batman Gotham City Cycle Chase 76053!

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!

2016 LEGO Angry Birds Sets Revealed! Castle! Pirate Ship!

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!

LEGO Star Wars 2016 Homing Spider Droid 76142 Photos Preview!

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!
