The 2012 LEGO Exclusives are...

Posted by ,

...still a secret for now. LEGO asked me to remove the information so I have done so.

Just for the record, the information I published was obtained from a public source, a Dutch toy shop website. I therefore felt justified in publishing it given it was in the public domain. Whether it should have been is another matter, of course.

It must have been in under 15 minutes. They must check up on you a lot, unless they have one of those things that tracks when you change the CSS.

@Huw, you might want to remove it from the facebook page as well then :P

cant wait for official release info.

^^ Good point Andhe, I'd forgotten about all the syndication that goes on! It's now removed.

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

Wouldn't want you getting in trouble with TLG :) (and I'd already read the list :P)

Gravatar
By in United States,

I hope we get the official release soon. I caught the list and it all sounds great!

Should the title not be called

Lego 2012 Elusive's?

Gravatar
By in United States,

HUW! :( c'mon man plz. Okay fine I understand. I can't WAIT for the new 2012 sets. Rats. I'm the only one who didn't see it? :(

Gravatar
By in United States,

lego shouldnt care about who gives the information first.

Gravatar
By in United States,

^^Maybe someone has memorized it, and could email you.

Gravatar
By in United States,

Way to go...

Gravatar
By in United States,

I guess this is confirmation that the sets are authentic.

Gravatar
By in United States,

Well that sucks......... LEGO shouldn't release any information if they don't want people to know! :(

Gravatar
By in United States,

I got sad when I saw that the info was removed before I could read it. Then I remembered I have Brickset's RSS feed on my phone. Some cool sets coming up!

Gravatar
By in United States,

I could sure use one of them there private emails.....

Gravatar
By in United States,

I'd like to set up an RSS feed. What is the URL? Can't find it anywhere on the site.

Ah already saw it on [REDACTED]. yesterday. i don't know if they're real or not. they sound real though. i like the sound of the [REDACTED] one.

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

I did read the list earlier but have such a goldfish memory I can only remember 2 of them now :-) I do remember they sounded pretty cool though!

Gravatar
By in Canada,

Well this is odd because I swear I just read a list about the rumoured Exclusives yesterday

This is going to get deleted really soon but the new sets are:

{you're right they did get deleted -- Huw :-) }

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

^ I wouldn't go talking about them too much unless posts are asked to be removed again. The [REDACTED] should be fantastic though! I'm going to guess a really grand [REDACTED] (possibly with [REDACTED]) and lots of nice traditional [REDACTED].

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

AWWWWWWW, that so annoying! Why is LEGO so protective over unreleased sets?? (I do know why actually! But you get what i'm saying. Don't you?)

Gravatar
By in Croatia,

Well, I guess I'm lucky, since I've seen, and remmembered all of them. :)

Gravatar
By in United States,

someone send me the list kthx :)

Gravatar
By in United States,

could you at least give just a tiny hint?

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

Please don't post the list, links to the list, or ways to find the list. Aside from anything else, It's a waste of your time, as they just get deleted ;-)

Matthew

Gravatar
By in United States,

Oh great. I thought I would be one of the first to see the sets.

Gravatar
By in Canada,

ya, i agree with bionicle212, can we please have a hint, like something that wouldnt give a whole lot away :)

Gravatar
By in United States,

I'll give you a hint (and it gives nothing away)- the sets will be made from [REDACTED]...

Gravatar
By in United States,

@jrach190 -- clearly you didn't see the list then

:P

Gravatar
By in United States,

Aw, man. I had to be at school instead. This was much more interesting, wish I knew.

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

surfboy100 and Doctor Leg O'Brick, I did warn you :-)

Here's a hint, there will be a Exclusive set from a theme ;-) (You're not getting anything more out of me)

Gravatar
By in United States,

Harry [REDACTED] Ministry of [REDACTED]? :D Edit: Oh I found them, never mind. Only took me like [REDACTED] minutes.

Gravatar
By in United States,

I don't recall seeing any train stuff on it, so maybe they will add some. NYC Subway?

Gravatar
By in Canada,

I know what the sets are but I have no idea what REDACTED is supposed to mean >_<

Gravatar
By in United States,

Aw man! I missed it! Oh well, only a matter of time before the leaking info pipe bursts into the interwebs.

Gravatar
By in United States,

grrr.... the anticipation is killing me!!!! All I want to know is.... ANY HARRY POTTER?!?!?!!?!?!?!?!?!?

Gravatar
By in Canada,

I saw the list on another site. There is one set I am really excited about. I'm pretty sure I will get it (a final decision will be made when LEGO releases photos). The only way I won't get that particular set is if it is aesthetically atrocious. I highly doubt it though. I think it will look great. I'm as excited about this upcoming set as I was when I learned LEGO was releasing the Public Transport and Grand Emporium sets last year. I have neglected to name the set that I'm interested in because it will just get [REDACTED].

Gravatar
By in United States,

Aahhhhh... Lego Lego Lego, when will you stop obsessing over unreleased pictures. Maybe you should spend your ''hard earned money'' on something else like...oh say your products! I feel like this is some government conspiracy, with Lego placing REDACTED tape on everyone's mouth. Any way my favorites of the sets are [REDACTED] and [REDACTED] and [REDACTED]. But the [REDACTED] wasn't that cool, I always thought Clone Commando [REDACTED] would have a bit more grenades on his belt, oh well.
:P I never saw the 2012 sets :D and I placed the REDACTED signs :P

Gravatar
By in United States,

@LegoCoastGuard. Yep, was just trying to help the other members. :)

Gravatar
By in United States,

^^^^No.[REDACTED]

By in France,

Here is some weather forecasts for tomorrow : [REDACTED] will shine in most of [REDACTED] but some [REDACTED] will come on the afternoon.
Aww ... seems like some weather lobbies are acting here too ...

Gravatar
By in United States,

Seriously, none of you have ever used a search engine like [REDACTED]?

Gravatar
By in United States,

Stupid redacting. :P Never seen that word so many times in my life.

BTW, why do we have this little article if it's still a secret? Why not delete it?

Gravatar
By in United States,

i can not wait till we find out what lego was next year!

Gravatar
By in Canada,

haha, I always find that funny.

Gravatar
By in United States,

I [REDACTED] that [REDACTED] but [REDACTED] could [REDACTED] been [REDACTED].

Gravatar
By in United States,

Well maybe Marty McFly can fly his hover board into the [REDACTED] building. Oh wait that was Biff.

Gravatar
By in Canada,

@TooMuchLEGO- I agree with you, why is this article still up, theres no point in it because its not showing us the new 2012 sets?, and everybody is just posting stupid [REDACTED]

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

^^^ LOL! Good one! I wonder if the [REDACTED] will have a [REDACTED] on it??

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

I heard that there will be a new dino theme in 2012, or has that been [PTERODACTED]?

(Yeah took me a while to think of that one :P)

Gravatar
By in Australia,

I'm really [REDACTED] that I missed this [REDACTED] info. I was too busy [REDACTED] with [REDACTED].

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

@[REDACTED], that a very good clue from a very good film, though I like part three better. You know, I think [REDACTED] is a mix of [REDACTED]. @JDLego, this article is not [REDACTED]. Look at the posts around you and find the clues people are making....

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

That's 3 posts I've deleted and 8 REDACTEDs I've put in in the last few minutes. When will you give up?

Gravatar
By in Hungary,

Why is everyone so impatient? We all will know every future sets IN TIME!
Some missed good news today means more good news tomorrow.
By day way the moon landing was [REDACTED] in a [REDACTED] made by [REDACTED].

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

I'm not saying anyting! Ahhum [REDACTED] Ahhum!

Oh, and my Crystal Ball says that 2012 will bring a [REDACTED] and a really cool [REDACTED].

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

^^^ Matt, just delete the whole post.....

;-)

Gravatar
By in United States,

Well I just have to add my 2 cents, here:

[REDACTED] [REDACTED]! [REDACTED], [REDACTED] [REDACTED] [REDACTED]. [REDACTED] [REDACTED]; [REDACTED]. [REDACTED] [REDACTED] [REDACTED] [REDACTED] [REDACTED]? [REDACTED] [REDACTED]? [REDACTED]. [REDACTED] [REDACTED] [REDACTED] [REDACTED], [REDACTED] [REDACTED] [REDACTED].

And, yes, I did censor some pronouns, prepositions, and conjunctions in there. I know, I know, crazy right? Well, Lego asked me not to use the words "and" and "the" until further notice because they appeared in the names of some of the sets that were leaked. And also one of the other sets was just straight up called "Above, About, Among". It's a special set with bunch of random bricks that you are just supposed to scatter out and place somewhat arbitrarily.

Gravatar
By in United States,

What would happen if a new user chose the names of these sets for his username, and then posted? Would Huw change his username to [REDACTED]?

Gravatar
By in United States,

@Toomuchlego: Cause it's fun to say [REDACTED].

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

@DrDaveWatford, if you did that, you might as well deleate the news post as posts like that will pop up everytime in this topic.

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

^^^^^ That's what I meant by the 3 posts...

Gravatar
By in United States,

I liked the title much better when it contained an error - fit much better with the current state of affairs... As a matter of fact, I think that Webster has considered revising the 2012 edition to:

e·lu·sive [ih-loo-siv]
adjective
1. eluding clear perception or complete mental grasp; hard to express or define: an elusive concept.
2. a skillfully evasive LEGO set that defies recognition: The 2012 LEGO Elusives are...\

LAST IN :) :) :) (well... technically Huw is... but you know what I mean ;)

By in Canada,

I think I'll just redact the ability for people to post comments now :-)
