Eight standard sets and four Spinjitzu Slam packs have been revealed, including the brilliant 70676 Lloyd's Titan Mech which is shown on the right. You can view the other images after the break...

Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace was released twenty years ago and the exhilarating podrace sequence is probably among the most well known scenes from the movie. However, it has only inspired a few LEGO models so 75258 Anakin's Podracer - 20th Anniversary Edition is an interesting prospect.

This rendition of Anakin Skywalker's podracer appears somewhat similar to the version from 7962 Anakin Skywalker and Sebulba's Podracers, albeit with some additional colours. It looks marvellous though and the minifigures are impressive, particularly since Padmé Amidala now includes medium legs and a new hair piece.

Fifteen excellent Iron Man minifigures from the Marvel Cinematic Universe have been produced since the range began in 2012 and these figures are certainly collectable. 76125 Iron Man Hall of Armour is therefore an exciting set, introducing four new Iron Man armours inspired by various different movies!

This rendition of Tony Stark's workshop appears similarly impressive, featuring details and references from across the entire Marvel Cinematic Universe. Furthermore, the set includes 524 pieces and it costs £54.99 or $59.99 so seems to offer reasonable value, especially given the inclusion of six minifigures.

Our list provides the year that sentient species was introduced and a representative character for each species. Several have appeared on multiple occasions, in which case we have chosen the earliest or most prominent example.
