2015 Disney Princess images

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...

Arctic Truck

Arctic Truck

©2015 LEGO Group

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

Posted by ,
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...

2015 DC Super Heroes sets

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

Posted by ,
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...

2015 DUPLO sets

Posted by ,
Princess Collection

Brickipedia has posted a list with official images of the Duplo set line-up for 2015. The Sofia the First sets seem to be a new license, and they also seem to have thrown in every Disney princess they could in 10596. There also seems to be a ridiculously oversized milk bottle in 10585. Of course Duplo isn't as interesting as other themes so stay tuned for more new set images! ...

LEGO publishes Bionicle artwork

Posted by ,

LEGO has just published more Bionicle artwork onto the social networks. No sign of actual sets yet, just concept drawings of masks, but nevertheless they do look quite cool. Here's a link to the gallery on Facebook. Thanks to bionicle212 for the news. ...

Speed Champions to race into 2015

Posted by ,

Brickshop.nl has once again revealed information about unreleased sets, probably before it should: this time it's details and logo of a new theme for next year: Speed Champions. The theme, consisting of seven sets which include Ferrari, McLaren and Porsche licensed models, appears to be a replacement for the old Racers theme. The sets will cost between €15 and €99 (£10 and £60)...

The Hobbit sets in stores already

Posted by ,
Attack on Lake-town

Flickr user mwheithoff has posted pictures of all four of this year's Hobbit sets acquired, I believe, from Toys R Us in the USA. There was an embargo on posting images until the middle of October but, well, now they are in the wild, that's not really enforceable, is it. Whether they should be on the shelves already is another matter, one for LEGO to take up with TRU :) Anyway, mwheithoff...

The latest Shell promotion

Posted by ,

One of the most exciting stories to break whilst I was away was the news that another Shell/Ferrari/LEGO promotion has started in the far east featuring seven polybags. The last promotion, which also featured seven sets, started in Hong Kong in August 2012 and has only just reached Germany. However I suspect that if they haven't appeared in your country yet they probably won't....

Bionicle 2015 news

Posted by ,

Super-sleuth Gatanui has found this image on the LEGO server that will be used on the product page there. It shows a mask of some sort, so I suspect Bionicle fans will be pleased to see that the theme appears to be returning to its roots, rather than brains, spinning discs and other (not so) collectables. (via BZPower/Eurobricks). ...

Bricktober sets revealed

Posted by ,

Neonape has found images of the four Bricktober exclusive sets which will be available from Toys R Us in the US, and Canada (I believe), this October. The sets are being referred to as 'Mini Modulars', though unfortunately they are on a different scale to the previously released 10230 Mini Modulars. Based on previous years we can assume that there will be one set available for...

75060 UCS Slave I pictures revealed

Posted by ,

The long awaited images of 75060 UCS Slave I have finally been revealed, unusually late for what will presumably be the Autumn Star Wars UCS model. These images were posted by just2good on his YouTube channel and will be followed by more high resolution images later. For now though, enjoy poring over the images we have so far: It appears to include 1996 pieces and five Minifigures,...

Minecraft images are back...

Posted by ,

Several YouTube users have uploaded videos containing the Minecraft images that were released yesterday before being quickly removed. If there was any doubt that the horse had already bolted, Brickshop.nl have also now listed them with the products on their website. I've uploaded the large images to the Brickset Flickr stream where you can see all six sets due for release next year. As ever,...

A new Elves theme for 2015?

Posted by ,

Hidden in the list of 2015 sets posted earlier today were five sets from a mysterious new line which seems to be based around fantasy elves. David Thomsen on Eurobricks has posted a list of English translations and prices in NZD. They are as follows: Naida’s Spa Secret (41072) – 39.99 Aira’s Creative Workshop (41073) – 19.99 Azari & The Magic Bakery (41074) –...

More 2015 set details

Posted by ,

TomKraut has sent in this link to a Swiss Toy Wholesale site, listing details of many 2015 sets that tally with the rumours previously posted here, in the forum, and elsewhere. The translations aren't the best but I think we can conclude that the sets listed will exist. The set numbers can be retrieved from the product code by removing the 411 from the front - eg: A-Wing Starfighter,...
