Three Juniors Incredibles 2 sets were released last week and the main reason that many of you reading this might consider buying them is just for the minifigures.

That's because, being Juniors sets, they offer little in the way of building experience and are not something you're likely to want to display. They are, however, packed full with playability as you'd expect for sets aimed at kids from age 5.

But as they are not the target audience here I'm just going to take a look at the minifigures in all three sets in this review today.

Italian store RadioKontrol.it has now published images of the six City Arctic sets we were awaiting pictures of.

As you might expect, the sets all feature vehicles, and all are involved in exploring the ice for frozen specimens, the most impressive of which are a sabre-tooth tiger in 60193 Arctic Air Transport and a wooly mammoth, in 60195 Arctic Mobile Exploration Base, right.

Take a look at the pictures and let us know if you spot any cool features or new parts.

Italian toy retailer RadioKontrol has also provided us with our first look at 70657 NINJAGO City Docks.

This confirms that it'll not be a direct-to-consumer set, like Ninjago City, but instead available in all good toy stores.

The price and piece count is not stated but I suspect we are looking at north of $250 / 250€.
