Tomorrow, it's Toy Fair!

Posted by ,

The first toy fair of the season, the London Toy Fair, starts tomorrow and I will be there. I have an appointment at the LEGO stand and I'll be reporting what's on show.

If it's anything like previous years, I won't be allowed to take photographs so don't expect any images but I do intend to make copious notes and will describe what I see there tomorrow afternoon or evening.

If there's anything you want me to look at specifically, post a comment and I'll see what I can do.

The other toy fairs coming up are Spielwarenmesse International Toy Fair in Germany on 1-6th February and the New York Toy Fair, 12-15 February. LEGO is usually a bit more lenient at these events and phototography will probably be allowed so you won't have to wait too long for pictures to appear.

What expect, new Sw, city mining, some more Ninjago , big technic, big creator as well as the already existing dino and also more sup hero, the awesome lord of the ring and the strange new monster fighter theme.

Sadly, I don't think any more Harry potter, dino or Alien conquest will appear for the summer.

Please look for the LEGO Phineas and Ferb board game/sets, Monster Fighters, and Superhero sets!

I don't mean to ask for much, and if you think it's too much then by all means forget my request, but, I'm interested in any The Lord of the Rings stuff on display and Star Wars. That's pretty much it. OH and if you see anything Super Heroes that has to do with The Flash, PLEASE let me know. But since he's DC, and this wave (I think) is only Marvel, they may not have him. Thanks Huw. :)

Do they have any limited stuff give out in the event?
And what did they have last year on the counter?

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

Totally psyched about the Marvel wave!! Especially the Avengers sets, hopefully there will be some TDKR sets too!

Gravatar
By in United States,

If it wouldn't be too much to ask I'd like to hear what the Phineas and Ferb game, Star Wars and LotR. Also any Creator houses. Thanks a lot!
EDIT: Oh and maybe HF and those Minecraft sets.

Please find out information about the 2012 Summer Star Wars sets and minifigures as well as information regaurding the UCS B-Wing and R2-D2. Thank you very much.

Gravatar
By in United States,

Gravatar
By in United States,

Can't wait to hear about the fair. :D

Also the New York Toy fair is where pictures will be taken. I want to see the big Technic set this year, among other sets too :)

Gravatar
By in United States,

I'd like to know about the apparent functions for all three Technic sets, and the color scheme and wheel sizes for 9393 tractor. Any information about the motors used in 9397 off-roader set (any new ones?) would also be nice to know about.

Gravatar
By in United States,

Can you find the hp character book? also can you look for the phineas and ferb board game? Thanks!

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

It goes without saying I'll be looking at LOTR and SW sets!

Gravatar
By in United States,

I say that you should find anything Star Wars, particularly if there's any Old Republic ships/scenes, Marvel, particularly Spider-Man, and any Lord of the Rings/Hobbit sets (with Gandalf).

Gravatar
By in United States,

Hey huw, see if you can find any marvel superhero sets.

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

Pricing and release date for the new Modular would be very helpful! Also any other exclusives for the rest of the year with the exception of the 5 we know about so far.

Gravatar
By in Canada,

Ooh, let me see here, back in a sec...

OK. The 2nd wave SW sets and LOTR sets, of course would be nice, but also 10226 Sopwith Camel. As well, the 2 SW UCS sets, the B-Wing and R2-D2. Thanks, Huw.

Gravatar
By in United States,

ALL STAR WARS! Get as much swtor as possible

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

Any specifics on the marvel and monster fighters sets naturally. I think collectively we want details on everything Huw. ;)

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

^^^^^^ and ^^^^^ I doubt exclusives will be there, as they are only sold directly by LEGO, and the point of the Toy Fair is to advertose new products to retailers.

Gravatar
By in United States,

I'd quite like to know about the Marvel sets, especially minifigs and what US price points it looks like they're going to be at. LOTR as well, of course.

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

See you there, hopefully :)

Gravatar
By in Australia,

As one or two others have said, any info on the Monster Fighters theme would be greatly appreciated if it's available.

Gravatar
By in Canada,

I want info on the Ninjago spinners. There's a possible chance you can at least see their character cards. Also, no one knows how set 9447 Lasha's Bite Cycle looks like.

Gravatar
By in United States,

I would like to humbly ask for information on the new heroica sets, if its not too much to ask.

Gravatar
By in United States,

PLEASE LOOK FOR ANYTHING WITH TRAINS

That includes:

*Track

*City sets

*Exclusives

*Accsessories

THANKS SO MUCH (sorry for caps want it to catch your eye ;D)

By in United Kingdom,

I'd be interested in the Marvel stuff, having had descriptions. And whether the leaks we've seen of LOTR and monster fighters have any resemblance to the actual products. I'll also second the interest in Heroica and other interesting board game sets. Please! :D

Gravatar
By in United States,

Please check out the Ninjago sets! Thanks!

Gravatar
By in Australia,

Lord of the Rings, Marvel and Star Wars. That's what most people are interested in.

Gravatar
By in United States,

Huw, can you please take notes on Hero Factory, Collectable Minifugures, and Monster Fighters? I'd be thankful if you would.

Gravatar
By in United States,

My question is: Is the legs of the new horse mold fixed?

Gravatar
By in United States,

I just want to know if there will be any more Dino sets!

Gravatar
By in United States,

All of the above! :{D At least LOTR, but Star Wars and Marvel too, if you get the chance. Definitely LOTR, though. If you could only choose one theme to see, choose LOTR! :{D

Oh, and I would also like to know the answer to @lisqr's question.

Gravatar
By in United States,

I'd love to know about Pixar, Disney, Brave and if there'll be anymore Cars sets.

Gravatar
By in United States,

please look for monster fighters! Thanks! :)

Gravatar
By in United States,

Please look at the Ninjago sets. (And everything else!)

Gravatar
By in United States,

As always Huw: Star Wars, Star wars, Star Wars!

And also, it would be nice for info on the LOTR sets. Interested in that as well!

Amid the flood of requests to see things, I wanna say have fun and enjoy yourself, boss!

Gravatar
By in United States,

Thanks Huw! :-)

Gravatar
By in United States,

please, oh please MARVEL. We haven't had any real info on those.

Gravatar
By in United States,

And maybe Friends. (I'm addicted!) Oh I almost forgot! Please see if Lego Phineas and Ferb exists!

Gravatar
By in United States,

See if you can get any blurry, grainy, sneaky, camera phone, shot-from-the-hip-without-looking-at-the-viewfinder pictures of Monster Fighters.

Gravatar
By in United States,

Try to get descriptions and/or pics of as many ninjago spinners and sets as you can Please?

Gravatar
By in United States,

Ninjago! Ninjago!

Gravatar
By in United States,

TDKR is The Dark Knight Rises, I presume? That would be excellent.

Gravatar
By in United States,

Ditto what @legotrains said - any new news on trains would be great.

Also, new Heroica sets.

And finally - what is next for LEGO Space? If not Alien Conquest wave 2, then what?

Gravatar
By in Australia,

^Yes, any news on what's happening with Space Lego would be greatly appreciated. I just get the feeling it's going on hiatus though.

Gravatar
By in Australia,

Huw!, Please if there's Monster Fighter's tell us some more information on them! :)

Gravatar
By in Norway,

Looks to me that we are going to have a sneak peak overview. I hope for some info about the new lego City Minig sets.
Also did you see a new logo og TLC? http://www.btha.co.uk/toyfair/logos/lego.png I like the yellow minifig, but I have no clue about the Lego-studs pattern in the background. Any ideas?

Gravatar
By in Netherlands,

Hi Huw!
I would love to know what the Superheroes sets of the summer look like.
Also, could you do me a favor? Can you ask when the Superheroes sets (the first wave) are due to come out in Germany and the Netherlands.
Have fun there!

Harry Potter if there is any. The exclusive minifig in the book?
All the new Ninjago sets- especially Epic Dragon Battle!!! Also the minifigs of Acidicus (green snake general), Skalidor (black snake general) and Pythor P Chumsworth (purple snake with very long neck).
The new Star Wars (Jabba's Palace and the new Queen Amidala figure).
Board games- Ilrion Heroica.
Shelob Attacks, Gandalf Arrives, and all the other Lord Of The Rings sets.

!!!Sneaky pictures taken with a hidden camera would be useful!!!

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

Please can you get a good look at the marvel sets as I am absolutely obsessed with marvel.

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

^^^^^ perhaps first question should be are you planning to allow other retailers in the uk sell exclusives like the rest of the world? :)

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

Can you report to us on whether the new The Dark Knight Rises will have any movie characters in the sets and not just the comic book characters?
Many thanks TheCahleySlash

Have a nice day!

Any news on Monster Fighters would be appreciated!

Gravatar
By in Slovenia,

Could you please ask (or spy) for a hint on any POTC sets? I'd really be grateful to read something about it tomorrow! Even if it's a denial, I just can't wait anymore :D

Gravatar
By in Philippines,

Confirmation as to where the Queen Amidala fig (royal dress) is going to be included...and whom among the elves will be included in the LOTR (aside from Legolas).

Gravatar

Any news on new Castle/Kingdoms sets would be appreciated.

Gravatar

By in United Kingdom,

^ Urm, Andhe already posted that exact same link! :)

Gravatar
By in United States,

^^^Woa! That's awesome!! The entire fellowship!! And that Ring piece just made me want LOTR sets even more. {D}

@Pumpkin Jack: Where in that does it say anything about LEGO? EDIT: Sorry, didn't notice it at first.

Gravatar
By in United States,

Wow, Thanks for those set pictures! Awesome! Huw, could you possibly find out if there is in FACT a Flying Dutchman PotC set that has been rumored over at Eurobricks? Or.... *sniff, sniff* Harry Potter???? *sob*

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

Someone's probably mentioned these, but here's what I'd like to know:

I'd like to know more about SW. Especially new characters and your thoughts on the Malevolence
I'd also like you to have a look at the new Marvel (Superheroes) sets. Sort of things like the characters (like Iron man's helmet), new pieces and your impression of the overall sets :)

Thanks Huw! By the looks of it you'll have to make a note of every new set- best bring a notepad ;)

By in United Kingdom,

If series 8 of the Minifigures is there, I'd really appreciate some information. Also, would you be able to describe what the Black Widow Marvel Minifig is like? In the description of The Malovelence it said it included Padme. Could you tell us what she's like? Plus, any information on new female minifigures (if they have new prints, or hairpieces) I'd be interested in that.

I'm also keen to know if the Vampire castle has an interior, and what the inside of the new City hospital is like.

I know it's a lot to ask, but I'm just very excited about these sets!
Thanks very much Huw,
Gregorovich

By in United States,

Can you confirm the construction of The One Ring? Is it a 1x1 round plate with open stud, or a whole new element - hollowed out? Is it truly chromed, or is it the 'ol PotC pearl gold bait-and-switch?

Gravatar
By in United States,

Definitely the Marvel sets. I don't know how much you know about Marvel characters, but good descriptions ought to be enough for the nerdier among us to figure out.

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

If it's there I'd love the details for palpatines arrest and if you see a set with the green lantern in it, how they have dealt with the constructs

Thanks :)

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

I wonder if there will be any Technic sets there. Would appreciate if you could get any details on any 2H sets, there are loads of rumours that one of the new sets will contain new power functions motors.
