The Capture of Sophie Jones

©2017 LEGO Group

A selection of Elves images have now been revealed. Next year's range is centred around mischievous Goblins and the first wave, presumably to be released in March or April as in previous years, consists of five sets.

You can view images of all five sets after the break or find them here in the database.

Note: We are aware there are images of Rogue One sets doing the rounds but because they are of dubious provenance and the likelihood of being asked to remove them is high, we have decided not to display them here yet.

41181 Naida's Gondola & the Goblin Thief

41182 The Capture of Sophie Jones

41183 The Goblin King's Evil Dragon

41184 Aira's Airship & the Amulet Chase

41185 Magic Rescue from the Goblin Village


The Elves sets continue to impress! Share your views in the comments below.

Wow hugely impressive sets I must say. That airship is a thing of beauty.
We haven't seen a lot of vehicles that were that elegant lately ...

Beautiful stuff!

The Airship is pretty similar to the Ninjago set though, even with the missing baloon piece under.

Very pretty! I've never been big on elves before, but I really want that dragon.

Solid! Best original theme going. Hope it continues for a long time!
I haven't been let down yet when building.
More More More!

Love those trolls! Kinda weird that the goblin king is a human.

Great sets. That goblin village is an incredible playset. On thing tho... In the emily jones gets captured set, are the cherries the same color as the goblin? If so.. Are they cherries or the Goblins reproductive organs, surgically removed?

I'm going to assume that the goblin in Aira's Airship lost an eye due to a well-placed flick fire missile in a previous battle with the elves. The elf in the goblin king's evil dragon is excellent. The golden filigreed horn (part 24204) is a great new part. The Elves are the best theme ever because of the colors and parts. I would not have said that until I got some of these sets and built them.

About time for goblins to appear! Great looking sets, btw.

They all look excellent! I'm still missing most of this year's sets, but I've just put all of these on my want list as well :)

Where were these sets found? They look really cool.

Excellent, i've been hanging out for pics of the upcoming Elves sets! :) Liking the models, especially the airship, although the little troll dolls i can live without. Good to see some more spring green and bright light blue. The gold curlicue will be very welcome too. I'm assuming the balalaika in the goblin village is two pieces not one?

I knew it this series will give us a lot of lovely pieces!
Acorns and bug in jar prints, new stem pieces...
Shame the village is not as colorull as it was on preliminaries though.

TROLLS ARE SO CUTE! Like Smurfs <3

Got to admit that the Dragon looks great.

Is that a 2l bar on the dragon? The curlicue in gold is a beautiful steam punk accessory. The polar bear cub is so cute! Great looking sets

Damn, those are wicked!

I have only one complaint: I'm disappointed the Goblin King doesn't look like David Bowie.

Elves is an excellent theme. Vechile, building, and scenery builds make the play world seem complete.

Wow, they look awesome. The goblins look really cute, I like that one of them have a balalaika-looking guitar.

@donutsftw: that made me laugh out loud.

These sets look wonderful! I can't wait to get them!

The elves sets continue to impress me. Sophie Jones appears to be a new human character. At first I though it may be a misprint for the title of the set, but then I noticed the minidoll does have a different hairstyle than Emily.

Gravatar
By in United States,

Wow, these all look incredible! My favorite parts of the Elves theme are the sets that feel like a fantasy version of Town and next year's do not disappoint. The detail in the goblin structures is awesome!

Exciting stuff!

Naida's Gondola is a nice smaller set, though its play features are nothing too exciting. Naida's new costume looks great, and it's the only of the new elf costumes we really get to see in great detail since these pics generally seem smaller than many of the pics we've gotten for other themes. Each goblin seems to have some sort of dispatch from the Goblin King (marked with his eye insignia).

The little shop in "The Capture of Sophie Jones" is quite nice, and makes good use of that new curve piece from the Volkswagen Beetle. The purple squirrel is cute though we have had a squirrel in the Elves theme before. I guess he sells acorn butter? The return of the little gold acorns is a nice touch, as is the new portal. Sophie is a cool new character but would be more distinctive if she were more visibly younger than Emily.

The Goblin King's evil dragon is quite fearsome indeed! Lots of great Spring Yellowish Green parts in that set, including CCBS shells. The goblin king is a neat design and his crown is similar to Ragana's, though it is somewhat curious that he's not as colorful as the other goblins. Maybe an elf usurper? Great use of the Nexo Knights pyramid piece on the crystals in this and other sets.

Aira's Airship is fantastic, and I love the curvy gold railings that meet at the prow of the gondola! There seems to be a pretty cool function with the dragon wings on the sides. Cool recolors for the dragon wings, boomerang, crossbow, propeller, and more. The new art vine/railing piece is fabulous! The set as a whole feels delightfully steampunk and art nouveau. It's also cool that Emily now has a new piece for her amulet! Previously it's just been printed on her torso.

The Goblin Village is fantastic. Their little houses are a much different style than the previous elf buildings, and are just as charming as their cobbled-together machines in the smaller sets. The goblins themselves are adorable and packed with personality. This set has two great new animal recolors (a cat and a lizard). The environment is also really distinctive and different from past Elves environments, with venus flytraps and spooky Earth Blue trees with red thorns. I love that one of the goblins has a guitar, as I've been wanting the Elves theme to include more musical instruments for some time!

Overall, I think all of these sets are on my wish list, at least until we find out about the summer sets at New York Toy Fair. I'm super excited for both these sets and the corresponding Netflix series!

Such nice parts usage on these sets, and I still love the look of the Dragons. But I just wish they weren't all comprised of eye-searing colors... The only thing stopping me from getting them.

I'm in love. The goblins, the dragon, the little buildings, the animals... so sweet! And I really-really hope that one day LEGO will release an ultimate Elves set, like the beautiful LEGO Ninjago Temple of Airjitzu.

@LegoLover58: Umm, no, not at all? CityVille Kreons have blocky feet, cylindrical heads and bodies, and a chiseled jawline, while these goblins are curvy and organic in shape like the mini-doll. CityVille Kreons have rotating hips and heads and interchangeable hair/headgear, whereas I don't believe these goblins have any of those. All in all, the new goblins are more like a blend of the Nexo Knights Scurriers and the mini-doll than a copy of anything Kre-O has made. Literally the only things the goblins and Kreons have in common are their size and the fact that both have moving arms.

Overall I like these sets a lot. They've certainly moved away from the overly girly colors and themes of the first wave. Only thing I'm not too thrilled about is the dragon, I was hoping for a four legged one that resembles the ones from the previous wave. This one looks too much like the old Castle dragons or a Ninjago ones.

@MattJek82: Just out of curiosity, what about the first wave's colors made it more "overly girly" than this wave? The way I see it, it's still using many of the same colors as it always had, including quite a few in the purple/pink color family. But even in the first wave those colors were balanced out by other colors like blues, greens, reds, browns, and tans. Naida's Gondola and Aira's Airship in particular are basically the same colors as their Adventure Ship and Pegasus Sleigh from 2015.

The biggest color change I see between these sets and previous waves is a lot more Spring Yellowish Green for the models associated with the goblins — but even that is one of six colors that was introduced with LEGO Friends in mind, and no less girly than the other green colors used in the first wave. These sets also use Medium Stone Grey as the default stone color rather than this year's Lavender and Dark Stone Grey, but Medium Stone Grey was the default stone color in the original 2015 sets as well.

I am a huge SW collector and have many Indiana Jones sets, so don't get me wrong, but I think themes like this or Ninjago is where Lego really shines. I love the colors and the overall vibe of the Elves sets a lot, and they're getting better and better!

Gravatar

Its a lot easier to fit and mix these sets into other, more conflict centred LEGO themes. There is a lot more potential for conflict with an evil looking dragon and nasty (but cute) looking trolls than there is with lets say a spa, a workshop or a bakery from the first Elves line.

the Elves theme just continues to be some of the best stuff LEGO is producing. Great imagination and creativity.

Everything is awesome!

I really like how they're building on the theme here. 41184 is decent, with some nice detailing on the airship, the two smaller sets are pretty neat, and 41183 is just downright NICE (and you might guess my sentiments on dragons already). Really like the goblins as well, and the introduction of a "Goblin King" has a nice, Labyrinth-y vibe to it. :P
