Wow that mini cooper is spot on!

Ooh, the Paris architecture set is a big tick. I never much cared for the original Ultra Dragon (the individual dragons just look so much better), and I confess, the new one doesn't really grab me either. But some of those new Speed Champion sets look like you *don't* need to apply 400 stickers to complete the model, so that's a win in my book.

The Mini Cooper and fhe F40 are definite purchases. Wasn't there a modular tease announced for Dec 1st?

It's good to see that the Speed Champions line continues, the sets look great once again! I just hope to see some cars from Nissan, Honda, Mazda, Opel and Renault in the future.

The new Architecture skyline sets are amazing too!

Are those new DUPLO-style eyes in the LEGO Classic sets? That looks like a pretty exciting line-up, assuming the original Creative Brick Boxes aren't being phased out at the same time.

The LEGO Friends Heart Boxes will be a fantastic source of tiles, round plates and macaroni bricks in several different colors, and the Heart Box Friendship Pack looks exciting, too. I don't have experience with minidolls; are those accessories compatible with both minidolls and minifigs?

41365 Emma's Art Studio appears to have roots in the LEGO Creator 3-in-1 buildings starting from 31026 Bike Shop & Café and ending in 31065 Park Street Townhouse, being built on light grey plates, having a fire hydrant that's almost identical to the ones in those sets, and having a similar general aesthetic. And it one-ups those sets by having a removable second floor. The color scheme is also TDF, but that's just my love for lavender/medium lavender and medium nougat speaking.

I also like the dark azure window frames in 41369 Mia's House!

I really, really like all the Speed Champions sets! Not sure we need another drag race set, but I'll take it anyway :) The F40 also looks a bit weird (too short maybe?), which might just be inherent in this style of building.
The Ninjago Ultra dragon is a bit over the top maybe? :) But again, Ninjago looks very promising for next year, as do some of the Friends sets.
Creator is a bit disappointing in my view, but then I might just have too many of these sets already...

On the note of the Ninjago stuff:

The new Ultra Dragon looks great! It looks like the tail swishing and wing flapping functions of the original have been kept in tact, but the necks actually have some mobility (which was the biggest issue of the original.) I'm a little disappointed in the brick built heads but they aren't the end of the world.

The Training set is a bit repetitive of stuff we've seen before, but I gotta say I love that they included the Samurai X Armor. I suppose Nya comes with it anyway in 70665 but It's still nice.

On the note of the new spinners, I adore the fact that they actually look like Tornados this time around! The concept that the attacking is focused on upgrading the spinner instead of just giving the figures a weapon is neat, and the fact that it can support four armed characters is fantastic. However, I'm really bummed that there are no cards. The card game was a part of what made old Spinjitzu special, if for nothing more than some cool art of the characters. Definitely a missed opportunity.

New road plate packs, I would buy a couple of straight/T junction packs and perhaps one or two curve/+ packs. It is a real shame we can't buy them apart yet or like it was with double straight.

What is with the forced perspective on the San Francisco set (the 2 bridge towers are not the same height) that is super weird. Will have to rebuild that.

By in United States,

^^ Mr Classic Agreed. I would rather have a . set with a couple vintage Minis (ala Italian Job) instead of the buggy...which I don't think translates very well.

By in United Kingdom,

Maybe I'm not up to date, but the Speed Champions McLaren Senna looks like it's got a few new parts?

- 2x2 triangular tile for the wing endplates
- something strange for the thin front lights
- Something else strange just underneath the top centre of the nose

Wow! 31 sets with less than 300 pieces. And plenty of the 87 ones that don’t show their piece count look fairly small. I hope Lego doesnt mess up the price per part on those sets and that there are more than the 28 larger sets coming next year. I almost feel like Lego is slowly making most of their sets the Juniors/4+ style, excluding Creator Expert and Ultimate Collectors Series and other adult focused lines. Let’s just hope that isn’t the case. I do love the Sky Police Subtheme and the new skylines. I’m really waiting for more modulars and also some minifigure series, including one for Lego Movie 2. Also another Unikitty series would be cool. The new Minecraft buildable figures are quite cool, and so is the pirate ship. I’m excited to see what Lego is doing for Avengers 4 and for more DC comic sets. Also can’t wait to see what Brickheadz Lego comes up with. Hope Lego also does some more Boost comparable sets. I’m guessing that if/when they make Toy Story 4 sets they will practically all be Juniors/4+ style like they did with Cars 3. The ONE thing I desperately want Lego to do is make an agreement with Nintendo to do Super Mario Movie Lego sets in 2020. But it is highly unlikely, considering Nintendo tried to make a similar brick style system a while ago, and because knex, I believe, currently has the rights to use the Mario characters in their kits and figure packets. :( Still crossing fingers for the possibility since there is a while before then. Very much can’t wait for these sets to release!

In all these sets, I haven't noticed any of the "medium" minifigure legs that were released in the latest Harry Potter collectible minifigures. Of course it's hard to see, in some of the photos. But in Creator and City sets (and others) it would be nice to have family members other than regular and short.

Even though the Disney range aren’t the big next year they’re still amazing some of them. And hopefully, the sets does not have a huge price like the past years. Really like the Tiana figure and really looking forward the Jasmine and Aladdin set. Really excited!

^^ The absence of the new color vibrant coral from all but the LEGO Movie 2 sets is equally stark. Probably LEGO playing safe by limiting its use for its initial run...

Cinderella's carriage again? they really need to have some more variety with the Disney Princess sets

I like how the Speed Champions MINI rally car set has tires appearing to be secured to the car using rubber bands.
also that ultra dragon looks neat, interesting that the heads have been changed to resemble Iron Baron's throne from Dragon Pit
also the heart friendship box has a lot of usefully generic accessories

Gravatar
By in United States,

What’s modular?

Gravatar
By in United States,

I love nearly all the new Speed Champion sets! Great looking Mini, Ferrari F40, Dodge Challenger, and Camaro (I love the printed tires!). Aladdin and Jasmine's palace looks pretty nice, and the new Skylines sets are both great.

Gravatar
By in United States,

San Francisco really caught my eye, as did the ultra dragon, some of the creator sets (especially the sunset racer which I plan to seriously mod), and the speed champion's sets. It's also nice to see police trying something new, and that diamond heist set in paticular looks amazing! And I know this was revealed a while ago, but I'll say it again because it's so awesome: BENNY'S SPACE SQUAD!!!

Gravatar
By in United States,

I like the skylines! And I love that they’ve included San Francisco.

I wonder if they’re introducing a new theme to replace Elves, as I don’t see any new ones here.

Gravatar
By in Netherlands,

I actually think the forced perspective on the San Francisco set is really clever. It makes it instantly recognizable in a way it wouldn't be if they just built it straight on.

Just google "golden gate bridge" and look at literally all of the photos, you won't find a single one where both towers are visually the same height, because the bridge is just that long. The perspective is one of the most iconic things about it.

Gravatar
By in United States,

Hurrah! More Speed Champions released! The F40, Dodges and Mini sets are definite buys for me. Even though the MINI Monte Carlo would look better in 4 wide as opposed to being 6 wide. Hope the NASCAR Camaro wheels are stickers so I can create stanced out MOCs.

Some great stuff, some mundane, some hits, some misses, but new sets are always fun to look at.

But...

STRAIGHT AND T-JUNCTION! Again?

DID EVERYONE NOT SHOUT LOUDLY ENOUGH FOR LEGO TO HEAR LAST TIME?

Gravatar
By in United States,

I definitely still want to see more pics of the Ultra Dragon since much of its body is obscured by the wings and shoulders at this angle, but it manages to meet most of my expectations! Certainly, it takes lots of creative liberties from the original Ultra Dragon's appearance in either #9450-1 Epic Dragon Battle or the show, but in doing so it adds to the complexity and uniqueness of the four elemental dragon heads. The elemental motifs are now further reinforced not only by the heads' accent colors, but also the colors of the stud shooter breath attacks, 2x2 boat studs/skid plates inside the mouths, Tr. Flu. Green lightning bolts for Wisp, Tr. Flu. Reddish Orange flames for Flame, Tr. Light Blue swords and pyramid slopes for Shard, and Reddish Brown 2x2 rock plates for Rocky.

The wings also don't appear to be able to fold closed like Firstbourne's were, but it looks as though the original set's highly unique functionality (in which the wings spread when you lift it by its handle) is preserved. And yes, the lifting handle is more obtrusive than we're used to on other Ninjago dragons since the original version of the Ultra Dragon, but I suspect that was needed not only for the function but also because its waist is almost certainly bigger around than most other Ninjago dragons. By contrast, I've seen quite a few criticisms of Firstbourne's "wasp-waist", which seems like a practical consideration so that even tiny hands can hold her securely and still use the same hand to press the wing-flapping trigger.

Posable claws on its front legs have taken the place of the claws on its wings, which felt rather redundant for an already four-legged dragon. Lloyd's saddle is now more clearly differentiated from the dragon's physical body both in terms of color and placement. The tail swinging function also appears to have been maintained. The new design has more substantial legs and necks than the original, and more coherent colors, rather than the torso and legs being so much darker in color than the heads.

Price-wise, the value seems quite fair, even if it makes this the most expensive dragon set since its previous set appearance, which was packaged together with a much larger prison structure and the legendary Great Devourer. Overall there are definitely some aspects that surprise me, having expected perhaps a more Firstbourne-like wing construction and flapping function, but overall I'm pretty pleased not only with the features I expected but some of the ones I didn't.

The Spinjitzu sets are also very exciting, and a great lower-priced range to keep in mind if I ever want to de-stress with a new set without splurging on a higher-priced item. The parts value seems very good for $10 and $20 sets, particularly compared to past spinners which had either a pre-assembled spinner base with a release mechanism for when the spinners collide and a weighted ring to keep them spinning longer, or much bigger and more specialized parts to enable ripcord-powered propellor or wheel functionality and keep the minifigure securely enclosed for outdoor play.

These do away with the more gimmicky battle or stunt driven elements in favor of more customization-based play, which is a nice compromise and one of the ways I enjoyed playing with the original spinners in the first place. The tornado elements also feel more accurate to the show and story than any earlier spinner sets, and also their more representational than decorative or symbolic design should make them a lot more versatile for many types of MOCs.

Definitely one of the main themes I'm looking forward to!

I do wish those Chinese sets were gonna be released worldwide though. They look really nice but I'm not paying aftermarket gouger prices for them.

Am I the only one who thinks that reaper's guns in the overwatch set look HIDEOUS? Also, what's up with the ninjago sets being re-released, and them basically bragging about it on the boxes? I will say, some of those sky police sets and that Batman mech look sick.

@demohound: The whole Ninjago: Legacy wave is meant to tie in with the upcoming four-episode special event/TV movie that will bring the show to its 100th episode, which is a pretty big milestone. The sets are celebrating that milestone by revisiting several of the most iconic sets and villains from the pilot and the first two seasons.

As a bonus, this also makes a lot of the most desirable stuff from those early seasons more accessible to people who only got into the show more recently, and gives the designers a chance to update a lot of those sets so that they're more consistent with current design standards and/or more accurate to how they appeared in the show.

This is hardly the first time the Ninjago theme has re-imagined some of the characters and builds from earlier waves, of course. The Destiny's Bounty (originally introduced with the Season 1 sets in 2012) was redesigned for both the Season 5 sets in 2015 and the LEGO Ninjago Movie sets. The Ultra Sonic Raider (another standout from the Season 1 sets in 2012) was redesigned as the Ultra Stealth Raider for the "Day of the Departed" Halloween special sets in 2016, as were a lot of the classic villain minifigures from the pilot and Seasons 1 through 4.

But in general, it's normal for any huge, long-running theme to keep revisiting or re-imagining its most popular and iconic subjects: police and fire vehicles and stations in City; X-Wings, Millennium Falcons, and TIE Fighters in Star Wars; pirate ships and colonial soldier forts in Pirates; castles, carriages, and siege engines in Castle; Batmobiles and Batcaves in DC Super Heroes/Batman; etc. There's no reason to think Ninjago would be exempt, and a 100th episode celebration seems like as good a reason to revisit those classic subjects/concepts as any.

@Nick The term "forced perspective" means that a specific angle that is not natural is put into something to make it look like a different angle than it is naturally. The photos you are referring don't have a forced perspective, they just have a perspective because they are taken from a certain angle. The lego designer put a forced perspective into the set by making the tower shorter on the right. In reality the towers are the exact same height, I should know, I am from the bay area and lived directly across the bay from the golden gate. I am going to tweak this so it is more like sydney and london where the bridges are seen completely in profile.

The more I see the Sky Police sets, the sillier the whole thing is getting. I know it's Lego City, and all, but this town's budget must be a work of art if the city can afford jet packs for its police officers! I don't mind the little police car (that's kinda cool), but I will definitely be skipping the rest of them.

60209 defiantly mirrors that of Rex Fury's flying mobile in the Lego City Undercover video game. Anyone else see the resemblance?

I gotta say, I wasn't too pumped about 2018, but 2019 has a LOT of sets with a lot of interesting parts that I really want to get. I thought I was losing interest in sets, but dang they just keep finding ways to reel me back in.

Gravatar
By in Australia,

I think EdwinJackson is right and there will be plenty of Italian Job MOCs built next year. I will buy at least one of the Mini set, to rebuild the cars as classic (and modern) Minis. I also like that the Friends line is a large range of smaller, simpler sets. These will appeal to the main buyers - kids and parents.

@bananaworld: It's a little different this time, it's a straight paired with a T as opposed to a straight paired with a 4-way. I doubt we're ever getting 2 of a kind anymore, but I have a feeling straight and T will sell much, much better than any of the other heterogeneous road plate sets that have been made. Not sure how well the curve and 4-way will do on the other hand...

@bricksaber: Where did I say the photos had a forced perspective? I said the set had it. I think you missed my point.

I know both towers are the same height in reality, obviously! The point is that the perspective view is the most iconic view of the bridge because that's how everyone sees it, due to its gigantic size and common locations it can be viewed from. That is how it is most recognizable. Again, go and google image search "golden gate bridge" and honestly examine what visual elements make it the Golden Gate bridge.

Of course I don't care what you personally do with your set. But the fact is that Lego's designers knew what they were doing in this case. This is the best way to replicate exactly how people remember the bridge in a Lego set that is clearly way too small to actually show this perspective normally.

The 1967 Mini Cooper S Rally is a work of art.

Shame it comes with a hideous 2018 Mini John Cooper Works Buggy and some other pointless nonsense.

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

Que countless Italian Job MoCs. Maybe the 2019 Modular could be the Fiat factory with a rooftop race track or the Gothic arcade where they evade the police. Perfect. Now I gotta go looking for white and blue pieces to match.

Gravatar
By in United States,

@Nick @bricksaber I also think the tower is uneven in an attempt to visually balance out the set from left to right. If you notice the lower tower is almost even with 555 California. Maybe the perspective effect would have worked better if the bridge was slightly rotated from foreground to background to mess around with the depth?

Gravatar
By in United States,

Both of those Architecture skylines are pretty splendid—notwithstanding Paris's much disliked Tour Montparnasse. Nice thing also is that the radiator grill element #2412 is stocked at Bricks and Pieces currently in red, white and blue for creating one of the Eiffel's evening light treatments—which I already did with the standalone Eiffel using respective tile elements. But maybe worth instead to light up this new City of Lights with some sparkling LED droplet lights....

By in United States,

I wonder how the Golden Gate Bridge model looks in person versus in photos. I also wish it was the regular shade of red, even if that would end up being too bright (versus too dark). I've wanted a rendering of the Golden Gate Bridge for a long time, so I'm... happy?... to finally have one? Do we have one? That set strikes me as so strange.

By in United States,

Another thing less specific to the themes I collect: I LOVE the new construction for the magic carpet in the Disney Aladdin and Jasmine set! When the tassel piece was first introduced in LEGO Ninjago, one of my first thoughts was how great it would be for the magic carpet from Aladdin, and when the wavy panel piece was introduced in The LEGO Batman Movie I thought the same thing. It's great to see both of those hopes come to fruition!

Also, with Aladdin being as good a movie as it is, I'm glad to see a set that features more potential to act out various scenes from the movie, even if it's still highly stylized compared to the designs, color palettes, and scale of Agrabah and the Cave of Wonders in the movie itself. I also love some of the new parts in that set, particularly the 3x3 curved version of the Elves theme's ornamental fence/railing piece, which will be excellent for MOCs both as a counterpart to the 1x4 straight version and as a rare example of a 3x3 quarter circle piece.

With all of that said, I would love to see future Aladdin-inspired sets featuring figures of characters like Jafar, Genie, and Iago… not to mention a new version of Rajah at a more accurate size and with more accurate decorations than the previous depiction, which just reused the tiger from the LEGO Friends animal packs. Maybe when the Aladdin live-action movie is closer to release?

It's great to see Tiana in a set, although having not seen The Princess and the Frog, I am not really qualified to speak to how well suited the corresponding scenery is. It's also a bit of a bummer that she just uses the standard Medium Nougat skin tone that's been used for previous darker-skinned mini-dolls, since I was hoping that Tiana's eventual appearance in the Disney theme would be an opportunity to expand the range of mini-doll skin tones even further with a darker color like Reddish Brown.

Just last year LEGO took a big step in expanding the range of skin colors slightly by giving Olivia in the Friends sets an intermediate Nougat skin color, but even in that case they have been slow to follow through by introducing a wider range of characters using that skin tone (Jasmine does seem to be using that skin tone now, which is an interesting choice but not necessarily a bad one). I get that it's easier to mix and match parts when there are fewer skin tones to choose from, but I also think it'd be nice if darker-skinned people of African/Asian/Native American descent, or people of any race with more intermediate skin tones, had more options to create custom figures that more closely resembled them.

On a final Disney-related note, while we've had so many versions of Cinderella's carriage before, and the newest 4+ one is not too extraordinary, I am really happy to see it introduce a more accurate, sly-looking version of Lucifer the cat, as well as Cinderella's mouse friend Jaq (even if the party hat piece isn't a great substitute for the Phrygian cap he wears in the original movie.

I LOVE how they made San Francisco look like an actual cityscape versus just lumping a bunch of buildings side by side.

For the few who mentioned "forced perspective," making the right tower smaller and creating the illusion that the bridge was receding into the distance was the only way to give the bridge an impactful presence within the scene. Sure, they could have made both towers the same size, but they would need to be much smaller to keep the bridge from looking horizontally compressed. Making the bridge that small would have diminished it's role in the cityscape which is sacrilege when it comes to the Golden Gate Bridge and San Francisco.

The mini cooper looks great but what's that other thing in the set?
When will we see a Speed Champions Lamborghini? Jaguar E-type? Caterham? Impreza? RS2000? Lancia Stratos?
DAF Turbo Twin? ;-)

Anyone else think that Speed Champions 1970 Charger RT could easily be modded into a ‘68 Charger? It would make a perfect companion piece to last wave’s ‘68 Mustang (if anyone else is a fan of Bullitt).
