Ice Skating

The second of this year's free Christmas sets, 40107 Ice Skating, has apparently been sent out in error with a shop.LEGO.com order to LugPOL member len in Poland. If last year is anything go by, it will be available to the rest of us free with orders over a certain threshold placed during the Thanksgiving weekend in November. Thanks Bart and Bacon for the news. ...

New Brand Store model on the way

Posted by ,
LEGO Brand Retail Store

Instructions for a new LEGO Brand Store model, 40145, have been found on the LEGO Customer Services site by Brick Builder. I'm guessing that it will be used for brand store openings from next year (it states (c) 2015 on the back), replacing the current one, which has been around since 2012. Check out the image from the back of the instructions that shows interior details after the break. ...

New images of Minecraft sets

Posted by ,

Russian toy shop Mir Kubikov (a chain of franchised LEGO stores) has published new pictures of the forthcoming minifig-scale Minecraft sets, including out-of-the-box and of the minifigs. They are not the largest but you'll get a good impression as to whether the sets are for you or not. There are, however, larger images of the boxes in this news article on the site, which I've added to the...

Rocket Raccoon polybag turns up in TRU

Posted by ,
Rocket Raccoon

This Guardians of the Galaxy Rocket Raccoon polybag has been spotted on eBay from a Canadian seller. It's labelled as a Toys R Us exclusive so presumably it's been found in a TRU in Canada already and might turn up in other countries in due course. The minifig is the same as that in the SDCC exclusive Rocket Racoon's Warbird so its appearance in this polybag will be good news for collectors...

2015 Friends sets

Posted by ,
Heartlake Lighthouse

Images of next year's Friends sets emerged last night after my bedtime. After their jungle adventure the girls are back in Heartlake City looking after animals, running pizzerias and getting their hair done. The stand-out set is definitely the lighthouse, although where in the world do they paint their lighthouses white and pink? The hot air balloon is an interesting concept but the balloon...

2015 Elves sets

Posted by ,
Naida's Epic Adventure Ship

Overnight, images of four sets from the new theme for 2015, Elves, emerged, courtesy of just2good. This is the third range of sets to feature minidolls which suggests that, despite what we AFOLs who'd rather have minifigs think of them, they are popular with the target audience. While they will not be to everyone's taste it looks as if, like other minidoll sets, they are chock-full of...

2015 Creator sets

Posted by ,

Finally, we've beaten just2good to a 2015 image reveal :) Images of four of next year's Creator sets have turned up at the back of a PDF instruction manual: a go-kart, a parrot, a dragon and a car transporter. I'm a fan of Creator animals so it's great to see that we'll be getting at least two new ones next year. The parrot looks great, doesn't it... Thanks Brick Builder...

2015 City images

Snowplough Truck

Tonight's video from Just2Good shows us what we can expect from the January release of City sets. It is a known issue that there are several sets missing, and we can apparently expect a sequel video in due course. We will aim to get up-to-date with adding the past few batches of 2015 images to the database over the next day or two. As before, you can see them right away in the video below. Let...

Amazing Spider-Man 2 Electro polybag found

Posted by ,
Electro

NuffSaid1996 over at Eurobricks has discovered an eBay listing for an Electro polybag for The Amazing Spider-Man 2 that we haven't seen before. No indication of how to get it or if it's exclusive to any region. If any Brickset members know how to get hold of one of these, let us know in the comments! Edit: It was pointed out on Eurobricks that this was given out at Kids Fest. It's probably...

2015 Chima images

Flinx’s Ultimate Phoenix

just2good continues to trickle out 2015 images via video and imgur. Tonight it's Legends of Chima. It seems there are 5 regular sets and 4 'battle packs' containing 3 minifigs. I guess these will be the £7.99/$9.99 replacements for the legend beasts. It's interesting that no details have emerged about Speedorz sets although there are supposedly three set numbers allocated...

Elsa's Sparkling Ice Castle

just2good has now published a video with images of next year's Disney Princess sets. The big news here, of course, is the Frozen set 41062 Elsa's Sparkling Ice Castle, which contains Elsa, Anna and Olaf, the snowman. I'm sure I don't need to tell you that Frozen was, unexpectedly, a hugely successful movie. Many toy manufacturers and retailers, who had presumably dismissed it as...

just2good has released images of first-half-of-2015 Technic sets in video form, or you can view them here in the database if you prefer. They look to be a mixture of 'more of the same' (race truck, quad bike and loader), innovative (Arctic truck and 24hr race car), and the 'can't have too many of' (motorcycle). ...

Speed Champions images

Ferrari F150

Images of the Racers replacement theme Speed Champions sets emerged overnight in another video posted by just2good. It seems they are all minifig-scale and feature a plethora of new parts -- windshields, mudguards, wheels, new curved plates and probably much more besides. They are also plastered in stickers. Meiko has posted an article on Brickipedia comparing the models to the real vehicles...

Gorilla Grodd Goes Bananas

just2good continues his series of 2015 official image reveals today with a video of the upcoming DC Universe sets. The focus for next year seems to be Justice League, which is pretty cool since it gives us some nice new figures and pieces. Not only are we getting new big-figures of Gorilla Grodd and Darkseid but we also see new figures such as Black Manta, Cyborg, and many more. I haven't managed...

2015 Bionicle set images

Tahu Master of Fire

Following his LEGO Movie video, just2good has uploaded a video showing finalized images of 2015's Bionicle sets. Definitely some good improvements over what we saw in earlier leaks. Doesn't look like there are final pictures of the "Protector" sets (presumably 2015's Matoran) though. Hopefully we'll see those soon, but for now it's great to see the final images of the...
