More from Nuremberg

Posted by ,

Andres at zusammengebaut.com is getting to the end of his reports from the German toy fair and by the looks of things has covered most of the new sets.

Here's what he's added today:

He's continuing to send through photos of boxes which I'm adding to the database as they arrive.

You can view some of the new videos after the break.

Still waiting to see pictures of the new sets for Lego Elves!!! I hope to see them soon.

Where's Doctor strange?

The vehicles in that Killer Croc set are kind of a disaster, but the minifigures will be hard to resist. Also just noticed Ben Reilly (Scarlet Spider) even has the blue hood, nice that they include that.

Ugh, the bridge set just demands two to be bought for it to look like a legitimate bridge, lol. expense on top of more expense, but it looks awesome.

Wow, Belle's castle is a lot more pink that I had hoped. I love everything else about it, all the creativity and characters...but the pinkness just ruins it for me.

And I can't wait for that Spider-Man/Doctor Who crossover set!! :P

I'm liking the second wave of Nexo knights even more than the first!

Also, when will TLG let people take picture of the Star Wars sets? The New York toy fair?

Hoth bricks have star wars even though there are clear no photos signs.

Belle and Beast translated into minidolls wonderfully. That new gown skirting piece is perfect. The brick-built characters are pretty great too. The castle *is* underwhelming, but it could be worse (like Rapunzel's set...).

I absolutely love that bridge! That has to be the best Super Heroes play set yet and the minifigures are wonderful. I would like two but probably won't be able to afford it unless it is discounted significantly.

I look forward to seeing the Doctor Strange set.

Those Marvel sets are great - the bridge especially. Its refreshing to see them being non-vehicle centric, and the character selections are great! The DC sets are bit less inspired, but with Captain Boomerang, Killer Croc, Red Hood and Blue Beetle at least the minifig selection is good!

@AgentKallus: Thanks! They look pretty good to me!

I must be the only one that thinks the bridge looks terrible. Too many colors mish-mashed together. The idea of the set is great. The figure line up seems great, so I'm sure I'll end up getting it but will hopefully find a sale.

The DC sets look okay, but again mostly buying them for the figures.

Disappointed in the Belle set. I was hoping something more grand like Cinderella's castle, with tan or light bley walls and dark red roofing like the Thomas Kinkade Disney puzzle. Clearly to aim at girls you have to have PINK...seriously?

The figures look fun though, so that is the selling point, yet again. But the build looks pretty sad. And rapunzel's set, really sad. I know I'm not the target audience, but they could have done better.

The SW sets on hothbricks look okay. Interesting figure line up. The ships don't do much for me.

EDIT: To add...we are getting 3 new Spiderman sets and none of them have the red dual molded legs like the Sandman set? I'm contemplating if I need to get him separately or if I could wait, but it looks like I should pick him up even though there are a million Spider-man(s) out there.

@Sethro3 I noticed that with Spider-man's legs too. I wonder if there's any chance that's just for the unfinished display sets, or if that's definitely the final design.

it's interesting that those double barreled stud cannons are becoming a staple of big SW vehicles because there's one on the CTT.

Looks like the most expensive year yet. Lots and lots of great sets. Just when I was trying to pare down my purchases. Lol silly me

Gravatar
By in United States,

Ha I feel your pain. Only sets it looks like im getting are the small DC ones...and maybe some star wars battle packs

The Disney Princess sets are just horrible. They're pink, the faces are really generic, and Rapunzel's set has no relation to the film whatsoever.

Loving the crossbow plane, rest of the Nexo Knights stuff is a pass.

Saw the Star Wars sets... like much of the summer stuff, I just do not care. Well, maybe the X-Wing... but none of the rest look any good.

It seems LEGO has realized the Sandman set is a bust, and are making the dual-molded legs exclusive to it. That is both brilliant and sadistic. Ghost Rider's motorcycle looks good and the bridge set is very good, but I don't like the other SH sets at all. I'm noticing a trend with this stuff.

I agree - this bridge is far from being perfect. I don't understand this excitement.
And the Beast - ugh... What a wasted potential! I hoped it will come in minifigure form (in Disney series)

^^Hater gonna hate.

Rapunzel swings on her hair in the film. Rapunzel swings on a swing in the set. Not an exact relationship, but it's a relationship. When I saw the minidoll on the swing, this Disney fan instantly went there.

There's the "Wanted" poster with the nose wrong like Flynn says "They always get the nose wrong."

There are paints and a canvas.

Yep. No relationship to the movie.

Spoiler for the 2016 SW advent calendar coming up below so avert your eyes now ....

Is that snow wookiee I see?

i thought that was Peter Capaldi's head in the Spider-Man set.

My major problem with the Spiderman bridge set is all the spiderwebs! ;-) Hopefully what's underneath are properly finished areas so I won't have to reface the pillars as well as buy two sets worth of bricks!

Sethro ... no, I was pretty underwhelmed by the bridge set as well. It's a real hodge-podge of colours and pieces that don't really look like they belong in the single set. Nothing's coherent about it, it looks like there was an explosion in the factory, that day, and the designers grabbed whatever pieces were lying on the ground nearby.

I do like the figures, though (Scorpion? Kraven? Spider-Woman? I'm on that like a fat kid on a cupcake).

@ericjohn: I admit, I don't like either of the new Disney Princess sets. I understand that this is related to the movie... but so is Iron Man Extremis Sea Port Battle, which is also related to that movie, and is clearly a very poor representation.

But eh... I am biased against the Disney Princess line, mostly because of the extreme pinkification and the minidolls, so bear that in mind.

OMG! I am so excited for the Beauty and the Beast set!

By in United Kingdom,

There was so much that they could have done with Killer Croc and yet make a travesity of a set. Have none of the creative team watched any of the newer batman animated series or movies that have been made? The scarecrow one isn't too bad at all. I'll be buying these purely for the figures.

The spiderman bridge is going to sell out fast as its so good.

So no Star Wars images?

By in United States,

The bridge has gotten some complaints about looking messed up with colors that don't really match...
It is going through a pretty major battle with explosives involved so I doubt it will look in mint condition.

Can somebody tell me please if I have to ask permission from the websites to use the images or do I just give them credit in the video.

Could somebody help me please?

The Beauty and the Beast characters all look great, but what is that castle monstrosity?! It is seriously hideous, and I don't understand the sudden swerve to pink for this one - none of the other Disney princess castles have been turned to pink. It really is horrid.
