Toymaster stores have received a delivery today containing City, Disney Princess and Friends sets along with Series 13 of the Collectible Minifigures.

2015 Set Sightings - Update #2

Posted by ,
Anakin's Custom Jedi Starfighter

There have been quite a few developments since our last 2015 set update a few days ago so it is probably time for another assessment of where they can be found worldwide. The official release dates have changed since our last update with the arrival of the German retailer's catalogue, although this does not appear to have affected set availability at all. United Kingdom: We still have...

We have reached the time of year where 2015 sets are creeping into stores worldwide, so we thought it was about time that we updated you on their progress across the globe so far. As always it is unknown whether we will see any of the 2015 sets available worldwide in time for Christmas as they have an official release date of January the 1st, but my fingers are certainly crossed. United Kingdom Nothing...

LEGO HUB Birds

Someone in Germany is obviously so pleased with their employee gift set this year that they are selling it on eBay already... 4002014 LEGO HUB (whatever that is) Birds is a set of five rather cool looking birds including a duck, robin and eagle. Rather odd that it should feature such creatures given the impending release of another set of them :-) I've now learned from Facebook that "These...

Instructions for a new promotional airline set 40146, to be available on Lufthansa flights, have been found on the LEGO server. It's been a few years since the last promotional airline set was produced so this is a welcome discovery. I wonder if, like 4032 Holiday Jet, it will be made with different stickers for other airlines? The first Lufthansa branded sets appeared in 1976. Thanks...

One of the most exciting new themes coming in 2015 is Elves, the first theme other than Friends and Disney Princesses to feature the minidoll.

A UCS Avengers Helicarrier set has been rumoured for a couple of months now and thanks to some eagle-eyed members of the Brickset forum we finally have a first indication of what it might look like. The set can be seen during the video introduction in the letter 'G' of DESIGN, where Marcos Bessa seems to be showing off the set in another designer video. Although we can only see a small portion...

It appears that sighting season has started earlier than usual this year, with the first of the 2015 sets turning up in Canadian Toys R Us stores.

Only a couple of City sets have appeared so far that we are aware of, 60082 Dune Buggy Trailer and 60083 Snowplough...

Burnard

I've just read over on French site Hoth Bricks that our favourite German toy shop website has just published pictures of Speed Champions sets. Whilst checking them out I noticed that they have also added images of series 4 Mixels. We can now see exactly what the white and lime green Orbitronz, Infernites v2 and the dark blue and glow-in-the-dark Glowkies look like! And I have to say, I like...
