Ninjago has become one of the most popular LEGO themes of the past decade, with a range of excellent sets which generally appeal to children and adults alike. The latest and largest of these is 70751 Temple of Airjitzu, a 2028-piece set recreating the Temple on Haunted Hill which appeared in season five of the TV show.
The spectacular oriental architecture is hugely impressive and will probably be the most appealing aspect of the set for most adult fans, although the play features are also very enjoyable and there is a brilliant range of figures too. For those reasons I suspect this set will sell rather well as there is a substantial potential market for it in my opinion, despite the fact that Ninjago is typically aimed at younger buyers.

LEGO has just published an electronic edition of the latest paper catalogue at shop.LEGO.com. In it, you will find full details of The Force Awakens sets including images, prices, minifigs and descriptions.
However, the embargo still stands, and remains in force until the 4th of September, so we won't be publishing them here. Instead we will direct you to the LEGO server where you can ogle them to your heart's content.
Someone explained to us why Disney does not want information about TFA merchandise released until the products are actually in the stores: If you know in advance what's going to be available you can evaluate the products beforehand and rationally plan your purchases. If you don't know, you will head to the shop on September 4, see all the shiny new merchandise and fill your shopping cart with stuff you wouldn't have bought otherwise. So, unsurprisingly, it's all about making you spend more on the day...
Update: The catalogue linked to above has now been removed.

I'm catching up on news today having been in Billund for the last few days on the Brickset tour of the factory and Idea house, which was a fantastic event. Thankfully nothing major was announced while I was away, which makes a change!
The most interesting news is that this year's Halloween seasonal set, 40122 Trick or Treat has been found in the wild in brand stores and has been reviewed by TheBrickFan. Its instructions revealed this year's Thanksgving set, 40123 Thanksgiving Feast, pictures of which can also be found at TheBrickFan.
Information about this year's Christmas seasonal sets has also been found somewhere: I see Grahame has added four other sets to the database over the weekend: 40124 Winter Fun, 40125 Santa's Visit, 40138 Christmas Train and 40139 Gingerbread Man.

These projects will join at least six others in the next review:
- Brick-built Adventure Time figures
- Caterham Super Seven
- Modular Library
- LEGO Physics
- Ghostbusters: Stay Puft Marshmallow Man
Two other projects have been doing quite well in the last week and they both happen to be fictional submarines: The Nautilus and Beatles Yellow Submarine. The Yellow Submarine crossed the 50% mark last week and The Nautilus (thanks in part to Brickset readers) is less than 100 support away from the 5000 support milestone.
