Halloween must be just around the corner (!) because this year's seasonal All Hallows' Eve set, 40260, has been found in the wild and as is usual for seasonal sets its instructions provide an image of the next one in the series, which will be 40261 Thanksgiving.

It consists of a vegetable patch, cart, autumnal tree, scarecrow, turkey, two minifigures and a pitchfork.

Review: 76085 Battle of Atlantis

Three Justice League sets will be officially released on the 1st of August, the smallest of which is 76085 Battle of Atlantis. This contains 197 pieces and is priced at £19.99 or $19.99 so seems to offer reasonable value, particularly given the generous inclusion of four figures. Moreover, most of these minifigures are exclusive and Aquaman in particular looks marvellous based on the official set images.

However, the standard of Super Heroes sets is usually very mixed and many of those we have seen based on the DC Extended Universe have been disappointing so I remain cautious about the quality of the three Justice League sets. Hopefully this example will impress...

The first LEGO Boost product, 17101 Creative Toolbox, is officially released in a few days although some retailers are shipping it already and I believe pre-orders from shop.LEGO.com have been received too.

I purchased one from eBay at the weekend and received it on Tuesday. I've not therefore had much time to evaluate it fully but I thought it would be worth writing something about my first impressions.

Images of The Last Jedi sets now available

Posted by ,

A number of toy store webshops have published pictures of The Last Jedi sets and I suspect they are all over Facebook, Reddit and Imgur by now as well, judging by the emails we've started to receive about them.

Even though they are now as good as in the public domain, they've been published ahead of the embargo, which we believe is September 1st, so we won't be displaying them here or providing links.

Search for Lekmer or Planeta Klockow if you wish to view them.

It's the 40th anniversary of LEGO Technic, so you would hope that this year's flagship model is something rather special, right?

After the exceptional selection of sets released last year, it's going to take one that's really extraordinary to surpass them. Let's see if 42070 6x6 All Terrain Tow Truck does so...
