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.

Res-Q Wrecker

Big Sal has published the second part of his series of articles which aim to debunk the commonly reported view in the media that 'it was all basic bricks in my day'.  This part examines the percentage of low-use pieces that have appeared in sets over time. As it turns out, there were more basic bricks and plates in sets back in the olden days, but the number of specalised...

It does not seem like very long since the second series of Mixels became available, but the hotly-anticipated third series is now making its way into stores as well.

Although the release appears to be fairly patchy,...

Review: 75055 Imperial Star Destroyer

Posted by ,

The Imperial Star Destroyer is a real favourite of many fans, and it is therefore no surprise to see that LEGO have at last returned to this iconic vehicle by releasing 75055 Imperial Star Destroyer. The last edition in a similar playset style was 6211 from 2006, and despite the fact that the two are based on the same source material, they vary enormously. This new version is priced at £119.99...

The LEGO Neighborhood Book

Posted by ,

No Starch Press should be congratulated for providing so many AFOLs with an outlet to publish LEGO-related books. Their output is as prolific as DKs but because they are 'unofficial' books they cover a far wider range of topics and are generally more geared towards, and appealing to, adults. The latest book to be published, The LEGO Neighborhood Book -- Build your own...
