Aussie toy shop reveals more 2012 sets

Posted by ,

Toys n Bricks, FBTB and loads of other sites are reporting the appearance of 2012 sets in the Hobbyco site's LEGO listing, including Cars, Super Heroes and various others. I'll get them added to the database here soon.

Update: Doh! Looks like they are already in the database, thanks Grahame!

Meanwhile, pictures of 2012 Star Wars boxes have surfaced on Eurobricks. They aren't watermarked but I suspect they were obtained illicitly. I believe they may have originated on this Japanese site.

That's a chinese site. And from the pics you can see that it's from a chinese mall or something along that line.

@lisqr: Oh, China, that explains everything. :P

Those unwatermarked boxes beg the question: Have LEGO already finished designing those sets? Do they just have to do the promo images (LEGOShop.com), and that's it? Or have the watermarks been expertly removed via Photoshop or physical removal?

Oh, wow. You normally can't get pictures of next year's sets this early, can you? Those just look mind-blowing. I will certainly be buying a few of those...

@lisqr: So... they are already out in China?!? :/ No, that can't be right... Are they just ads or something?

@lisqr: Hmm... no watermarks, but few "special effects"... suspicious. The boxes have very little "special effects" on them. Probably they just have to finish them?

EDIT: Look at 4438. The motorcycle doesn't seem to be moving, it seems immobile while doing a wheelie. They just have to finalise the box art.

@lisqr: Where did he get that ARF Trooper?! FROM THE 2012 SETS?!?

EDIT: Nevermind, it's in a 2011 set. :P

EDIT 2: I had a look, and it seems he lives in China. There's a folder called "Shanghai-Office".

Loving the City Sets and The Super Heros, The ambulance is a nice set to the collection but I wish they wuld have made a whole line to City just for EMS, I need a Hospital, they could of made a helicopter, maybe a boat and some other stuff. But the Police is just as good, and the other City stuff.

I love having all these new animals...is this the year we get a rancor and a bantha?

To me. Lego probably has a reason for not making as many EMS sets as we like: beacause most kids want to be firefighters and policemen, not EMTs. That's probably why we are seeing police and fire sets more often than EMS oones

It's strange that LEGO haven't badgered in and demanded the removal of the images yet. Usually, they would be all over it, instead...
