New sets in Germany

Posted by ,

60026 in the wildDarthbrickus reports from the Frankfurt brand store that 60026 Town Square is on the shelves, along with the Super Heroes summer sets, Lone Ranger, Galaxy Squad wave 1, and a few of the other summer City sets.

I think LEGO are rubbing it in, aren't they, releasing them in Germany now but not the UK :-)

Lego aren't treating the uk too well in 2013 so far.

Even though i'm not British, it is unreasonable. Their giving Germany all the good stuff. Britain doesn't have the lone ranger.

Or made available in the US.

Looks like they gave 60026 a more economical box size, very good Lego!

might be because Germany still is Lego's #1 market.

btw, trade fair season has kicked off here (music fair last week, butchery fair next week) and frankfurt has a massive footfall as it is only 20 odd metres from poshest hotel in town

^ It does seem somewhat unfair though, seeing as it is rumoured that some resellers in Germany are to blame for some of the reduction in AFOL discounts. How many of these sets will end up on eBay for resellers to sell at inflated prices until they become readily available elsewhere?
The words "shooting yourself in the foot" spring to mind.

I think they know what they are doing. They are the #1 toy company in the world now.

I might possibly get it if it's cheap enough, if not hope to get just the bus on eBay when it is widely available. Imma getting the race truck tho, it looks nice...

At the current exchange rate €99 is about $130. Does anyone know if that will be the actual cost in North America?

With this pic, we know there is a new Octan station this year.

^ Sorry, I'm not seeing anything regarding Octan in that picture. How do you know that?

I have the City Corner and the Building site already, so apart from the statue, I can't see any real reason to buy it, other than updated versions of what I have already. I wish that they produced more City themed buildings rather than redesign old ones. Although here in the UK on most high streets in towns and cities, they couldn't do much else apart from a LEGO charity or coffee shop!

@ L i T

more than likely it is now the sheer number of AFOLs that reduce the level of discount. think of it like the black market for illicit substances , once you're addicted the free samples stop ;-)

Galaxy Squad was already available in the Netherlands in March.

A nice set. It just needs more bicycles.

My guess is $120, though that would a bit too rich for me.

One store in Frankfurt does not establish a trend for entirety of germany.

@Bahnstormer

Huh? What AFOL discounts are these that you're referring to? Am I missing something, i've never been offered an AFOL discount before.

Was this the set that was the result of the competition to choose 1 out of 3 potential new sets such as a town centre, a truck stop and something else which ran a few years ago?

@tomahawker:
When the firts pics of this set where released, an Octan station was on. many asked if this one was part of this set.With the definitive box, we know this station will be a different model.

From the official pictures in Lego Shop it seems, that the bicycle mold was redesigned. Check the from light stud.
