Pictures from the German toy fair

Posted by ,

As suspected, images are starting to surface from the German toy fair that started on Wednesday.

The first gallery to be brought to my attention is at a Slovenian LEGO site, Kocke Klub where you can see overview pictures of the displays.

Looking at the images, one thing's for sure, LEGO spent way more time and effort on the display than they did for London!

I believe the show runs until Saturday and I suspect more images will appear online then. So, keep an eye out and let us know when you find them! (Thanks RJH)

Update: for some reason the source site has removed them: "Sorry guys. Because of stupid member who wrote some unreal comments on other forum, I decide to remove pictures. " Not quite sure what he's referring to, hopefully nothing to do with Brickset...

Update: Smashing Bricks has reposted the images and added a few more.

LOTR spider (Shelob) and the Monster Fighters Train look incredible. Not enough to see in Dracula's castle but I am waiting for that one the most. The flying machine ( I hesitate to call it a plane) from the monster fighters looks absolutely dreadful.

The Monster sets look better than I thought they would be.
Love the look of the LOTR series. Only wished they had the license years earlier.
Are they going to be releasing Super Hero minifigure packs?

Monster Fighters sets looking great. Ghost train and Castle/Haunted House now pencilled in on shopping list.

They went all out with the Friends theme, didn't they? ("I'll be there for youuuuuu...") The seaplane looks a little unsafe, heh.

Looks like there's a couple more Star Wars planets, which I think are nifty.

The Monsters plane-thing looks pretty bad, yeah. But the train looks amazing! I'm still not sure I'll get it, but they went all out. And from afar, Dracula's castle looks pretty awesome too.

And there's the new Mining sets. Pity they're not likely to sell that giant rocky mountain along with the trucks and little underground railway set, eh?

Pity there aren't more pictures of the LotR sets ---- but Shelob looks AMAZING. Moria and Weathertop look good too.

I was quite pleased to see how good the Malevolence set looked - it was a 50:50 for me as to whether I'd get it but I think I'll have to have it now.
Apart from that, LotR looked very promising although I was disappointed not to see any pictures of the Marvel Superheroes sets. Just dying to see those.
Not really too interested in the Mining subtheme of City, Friend (although this looked really good too!) nor Monster Hunters. Hoping that more pics will surface soon!!

i actually really liked those monster fighter sets. The castle is HUGE.

Everything looks good!

Like the look of the train! Any ideas on the Star wars red x-wing looking ship and who are the figs?

Gravatar
By in United States,

LotR looks fantastic from this closer view. Good to see Shelob with brown legs instead of red and black, hopefully that's how they'll keep her.
Also excited for the new Star Wars planet sets. Please tell me that's Lobot in Bespin and not an Imperial Officer - I can't really tell which one the figure is right now.

Weathertop appears to open.

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

It is Lobot and it looks like the other is Endor and at-st, does it look like the at-st pilot has a new helmet?

Gravatar
By in Sweden,

That castle set from Monster Fighters looks awesome.

As does the LOTR Shelob build.

Gravatar
By in Singapore,

Yeah, LOTR sets look fantastic. I'm loving the Weathertop build.

Deepdalelegend, the red ship may be the 9497 Old Republic Star Fighter. If you do a Google image search, you may see some preliminary images. Not sure about the minifigs, check older posts that listed them for some sets.

The red Star Wars fighter I think is from the new The Old Republic game. Can't remember the characters at the mo. Also coming from the game is this ship:

The red ship looks much better than the leaked promo box shots so can't wait to see the final Fury!!

I agree, they knocked it out of the park with Shelob. Not sure about Monster Fighters yet, mainly looking at that theme for the minifigs. Same with LOTR really, unless they can make one really outstanding set to display them all in. Not sure how I feel about Helm's Deep yet. Wish there was a Rivendell or Lothlorien set. Even a Mordor set! Maybe if there is a second wave. Since I don't play the game, probably won't invest in the Old Republic sets. I do really like the look of the Malevolence though! Might just try to score minifigures from most of the sets, especially LOBOT WITH FLESH COLORING! I have the yellow Lobot, so this one was a few years in the making. So happy to see it, but not a fan of the orange twin pods. I'll stick with the classic red set.

Actually, on second thought, a Gondor/Minas Tirith set would be AWESOME. Aragorn, Gandalf, Hobbits, orcs, dragon, troll, catapult, city wall, siege tower... There was a dragon, right?

Gravatar
By in United States,

OMG ISENGARD, SARUMAN THE WHITE, TREEBEARD.

And Sauron's tower, Crack of Doom/Mount Doom/Destruction of the Ring.

Why doesn't Lego ask me for ideas?

Ok done dominating this post.

The Monsters sets look excellent.
Helms Deep is a total win.

My goodness the sets that I can see all look superb!!!

Huw, I did manage to get a glimpse of the pictures, but I believe they have been deleted now. I tried searching through the website, but I got lost (language barrier). Monster Fighters look the best IMO!

Gravatar
By in United States,

pstrickler, the pics were nabbed by other bloggers, just Google image search "Lego German Toy Fair" and a few will pop up.

Gravatar
By in United States,

brickipedia has s star wars pic, and one the lord of the rings, but you cant see them very well.

Gravatar
By in United States,

Hmm, I was able to Google search and find the LOTR image. It's aweome! So Sam won't be having blond hair after all, which is strange. Shelob is the best giant spider they've ever made; partly because of the size. The second Aragog was not much bigger than a CD. Yes, I am definitely getting as many of these LOTR sets as I can.

I wasn't able to find any Monster Fighters pictures. <|:{(} <--In case you're wondering, that's Gandalf with a sad face.

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

Can some one tell me, how many images were there on the website, the only one's I have seen is the 1 on fbtb.
If anyone has any other photos then can you PM me.

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

I thought the lord of the rings sets were going to be bigger :( I'm still not sure what to make of the montser fighter theme - it looks kinda a like a jumble sale of pieces all thrown together to me

Gravatar
By in United States,

Still no Marvel... :(

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

@TheCahleySlash there are 9 images and all on the link above ;)

Gravatar
By in United States,

@RJH - is there any way to see bigger pictures on your site?

Gravatar
By in United States,

I dont understand the ghost train. what theme is that for?

Gravatar

^ monster fighters

The monster fighters sets are really cool. makes me wish I had more room to put stuff so I could have more sets

NO!!! THE PICTURES ARE GONE!!!! Dang it. I really wanted to see the NRG ninjas.... :(

Good thing I save the pics. :D

Gravatar
By in United States,

If someone was allowed to take those pictures, why aren't there lots more somewhere?

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

Thanks RJH

I think there is a picture of new set from the marvel line as seen on http://www.brickheroes.com
(the quinjet or something similar?)

Look behind Thor and Iron man in the picture. I think it has a women with red hair in the cockpit.

Gravatar
By in United States,

Man the SW sets look awesome.

Gravatar
By in Germany,

@RJH - just a thought - copying and hosting someone else's pics is one thing but keeping the original file names and even hosting a pic of the guy you nicked them from might be considered taking the mick...

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

@bahnstormer, might want to check how I obtained them before assuming things! Plus the guy in a picture with the oversized hobbits is from another site again no full facts before pointing fingers please.

Monster Fighters:

These set's look absolutely incredible!. I know some of you said the ''Plane'' look's weird, but honestly the Theme is meant to look strange and peculiar adding to the effect. It look's to be set in the 1950's or so, so the technology is suppose to be whacky and intriguing, like the Original Studio Monster/Fantasy Theme. Really Really looking forward with that series. The Train looked incredible, better than what I imagined, and it looked huge!, as with the Castle!. I loved how they made the Castle in a sort of angular positioning, where the two large sides with gates led up the the 1st tall tower, then the 2nd tall tower, that looked amazing. All of the set's in that Theme look VERY good!

Lord of the Rings:

WOW!, Just WOW!, They look absolutely sensational!. I love how the ''Battle for of Helm's Deep'' Set had many curves and all these thick part's and it just looked like a really large set!, which make it look very large and well thought out, I'm loving that set!. I love all of the Lord of the Rings Set's, so many new Customizations and Molds, and to think we have more Waves coming!.

CITY:

To be honest I was disappointed with this Years City set's. I guess all we can do is wait, hopefully set's like the long awaited Hospital will bring my expectations up.

Star Wars:

WOW!, Once again!, Another fantastic Year for Star Wars. The Maleviolence actually looked quite good, and the Star-fighters looked very intriguing also. Let's hope the Jabba's Palace looks good, and also the other Star Wars set's.

Technic:

I'm 50/50 on this one. The Helicopter and 4WD looked quite good!, but I'm not entirely sure about the rest of the set's. I think it was a weaker year for Technic.

Ninjago: WOAH!, Where did all these fantastic set's come from?. LEGO really did themselves with Ninjago, sending out quite a large range of set's, which all look very good!.

Friends/Creator/Hero Factory/Others.

All in all the Friends, Creator and all the other set's out seem to be really well done. I love the new molds for the Hero Factory, and the inclusion of so many rare pieces in the Friends Theme. Look's to be quite a good year for LEGO.

Gravatar
By in United States,

I really hope that with some Old Republic sets, we'll see some Knights of the Old Republic sets. Imagine a Lego Hammerhead Cruiser or a Lego Ebon Hawk! I can't say much about the actual sets, seeing as I arrived too late to view the images, and it's driving me crazy. I fail to see how, "Good things come to those who wait," applies to Lego :P

Gravatar
By in United States,

Loving the Friends sets! At first I didn't like the horse riding sets but the look wonderful! Especially the large "country club" lodge! I also can't wait for the new Ninjago sets! The large dragon and snake set looks great! The large vehicle thing is cool too! (although it's a little too Exo-Force looking IMO)

Gravatar
By in Canada,

Lasha's Bite Cycle kind of reminded me of the Fangpyre vehicles. I thought it would have a different design since it was a different tribe but, oh well.

Gravatar
By in Australia,

:O! Can anyone tell me why there is so many new Ninjago Mini-figures in the new Link?. There's so many new ones?, What set's can they fit in?, there's about 40 or something it's crazy, some are completely new with new mold's, or perhaps the 3 new Summer set's just have a lot of Mini-figures :)

Gravatar
By in United States,

I am not a technic fan, but that remote control off broader looks pretty sweet!

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

I'm guessing that from the monster fighters image here http://smashing-bricks.com/files/2012/02/nurem5.jpg its good to see that Marvel don't have a monopoly on certain 'superhero themed' new moulds/parts like the Star Wars and Indy licences. Some nice figs, and with wolverines claws and Thor's hammer as well!

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

I can't get over how good the new ninjago sets look!!! I especially like the purple snake and ninja lloyd figures and the samurai mech looks awesome as does the giant snake!!!

Gravatar
By in Australia,

New pictures!

Does the Samurai Mecha actually come with that giant snake? 'Cause that would be most awesome set this year, hands-down.

I'm not yet sold on the four-headed dragon. But no, the new Ninjago sets are ROCKINGLY AWESOME.

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

As long as that Old Republic Trooper has a helmet in the actual set I'll be happy.

Gravatar
By in United States,

if you look in the background of the marvel statues, you can see part of the quinjet aerial assault!

Gravatar
By in United States,

I'm loving the Bite Cycle, because I like the Venomari, and 'cause it apparently costs $19.99.

^Zordboy: it does not come in that set, but it comes in the Epic Dragon Battle.

Gravatar
By in United States,

I am not at all into Ninjago but that super sonic cycle looks pretty damn cool. Also I have been looking for a good set with tank type treads for an moc. I also kinda like that 4 headed dragon too. I will stay reserved on it till I see better pictures. Speaking of better pictures...All the pictures are the exact same. were cameras not allowed and these are generic "press photos" or something? I would love to see opposite angles on a few of those. Anyone know where some are?

Gravatar
By in United States,

I love City! Its one of the only kind of sets i buy. I looked through all the pictures and the only one that really made ma interested is city. I think that all the new city sets are AWESOME. The mine looks awesome with the low slung drilling thing! When i was looking through city i saw in 2005 that there was a large dump truck, now i have a chance to get a NEW version. Now i must say that the excavator looks a little weird but ill still get it for the truck! Well over all i think that the mining theme is something that I will get.

Oh ya i didn't forget about the hospital, i think that that is AWESOME AND MODERN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Gravatar
By in United States,

at first i thought the name "epic dragon battle" was kinda cheesy, now that ive seen it. it deserves the title! the minifigs are great! pythor is no exection, i think he's the best one right next to the green ninja!

Gravatar
By in United States,

Great pics - though I have to admit i wish i could see the new creator house.

Gravatar
By in Netherlands,

Yeah! Very good picture! Nice Helms Deep set! I can't wait!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I gotta get all the ninjago sets.
And Malevolence is awesome.

Gravatar
By in United States,

@ legogeek: Thanks! :D Those pics are AWESOME. :D

:D X ninja (:P)

Gravatar
By in United States,

Okay, now I've seen the sets. I'm kind of disappointed that there is only one picture of LOTR. But besides that all the sets look great. I really like the monster fighter sets, and City is improving from Cops and Robbers Syndrome. The Malevolence is a lot small then I thought, from what I could see it looks like it's only one foot long. Still, it's a very sleek ship that resembles the original amazingly.

Gravatar
By in United States,

Despite my hate of the mini-dolls, I liked the big Friends setup. The Malevolence's big cannon seems quite small. It should have been taller, IMO.

And I WANT THAT 4X4 CRAWLER!!!

AWESOME NEW PHOTOS

Jabba's Palace looks incredible in the video....they said they have 10 figures with 7 new figs. (maybe they're counting Hans Carbonite Chamber as the 10th?). Looks like there's a few fun play features too. Must get for me!

I'm buying every single one of these when they come out. I want to see some better photos.
