New York Toy Fair this weekend

Posted by ,

The New York toy fair starts tomorrow so we are anticipating a number of product announcements beforehand. It is likely that the Pirates of the Caribbean ship will be revealed, along with this year's 'May the Fourth' Star Wars UCS set.

If previous years are anything to go by LEGO may overlook fan media sites and instead provide initial information to some random movie, newspaper or technology website. So, when the east coast of the USA wakes up later, keep your eyes peeled!

The Brickset team won't be at the toy fair but our friends at The Brick Show and Jedi News will be and will hopefully be providing us with information throughout the day. Doors open at 7am (12pm GMT) so expect the first pictures and videos to start appearing online shortly afterwards.

It should be an exciting few days!

The Brick Show present at an event where there's hardly any scalping to be done? Colour me surprised!

Does anyone know what the new UCS is rumored to be?

I've just had a thought, what if the rumoured star wars rebel hanger set is the yavin base, and is being released for the 40th anniversary as the UCS set? Maybe simpler style to Hoth and Ewok village.

It is the Snowspeeder 100%. There are already leaked Pics of the Packaging on the net.

I hope we see some more D2C sets or at least some rumours.

It'd be nice to get a Snowspeeder. I sort-of regret not getting the first UCS one, but then again, it wasn't all that great. So a revised version is a good thing. The new one looks a better shape, both at the front and on the windscreen, but kind of lacking in detail.

Yes, I so want official images of the newest Republic Fighter Tank (I am so using the instructions to make an Imperial Fighter Tank variation).

There's just something I'm not getting.

The NYTF site says the event starts on the 18th (tomorrow). So who's right? Is there early access or something?

@Penkid11, They probably have a preview day for selected media and key buyers in the toy trade.
