Cool! I wonder, is that creator carousel a big D2C set or a smaller 3 in 1 set?

Gravatar
By in United States,

Ooh! Can’t wait for the DC sets. And hope city space will be more like classic space with neat spaceship designs and not just another round of lame shuttles.

Petrol. Just the thing a company from Europe would say. Ever heard of a gas station? Ah the difference between different dialects is fascinating.

€449.99 for the Liebherr?!?!? Must be a typo or Technic fans are going to be outraged.

Gravatar
By in Belgium,

My wish-list is way too long. Poor wallet ...

By in United States,

I’m looking forward to seeing how these Friends animal rescue sets compare to the jungle theme from several years ago.

Also kind of surprised to see a rehashing of an amusement park already for the Friends theme.

Gravatar
By in United States,

Moonbase? Intriguing...

Gravatar
By in United States,

Believe it or not, there's more to DC than Batman.

Gravatar
By in Netherlands,

Literally none of these sets interest me, still waiting for those Jurassic and Harry Potter sets...

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

42096 Car Transporter - 2493 pieces
42097 Spider Crane - 920 pieces, 89.99€
42099 Extreme Off-Road Vehicle - 958 pieces, 229.99€

Guessing either 42099 should have more pieces or 229.99 is the price for 42096?

Gravatar
By in United States,

Jurassic Park and Harry Potter sets are coming later, I got some info on the Harry Potter sets this morning though.

Gravatar
By in Indonesia,

Some of the Friends sets sound interesting, looks like there's the first set to break the $100 price point since the hotel a few years ago. I'm surprised to see so many returns to previous sets - the lighthouse, amusement park, and yet another restaurant. I'll be interested to see some of those plus the submarine and the rescue boat. Also looking forward to the Creator townhouse and pet store.

Gravatar
By in United States,

I’m actually happy that not much of this interests me! I still have a bit of catching up on retired sets, so my LEGO budget can be directed towards that!!! :D

Gravatar
By in Japan,

Very excited to see the City Space sets. And am intrigued by the Doughnut Shop. Could be great, but 80€ sounds a bit steep for what I'm hoping for.

Gravatar
By in United States,

Love the sound of all those summer Star Wars sets and can’t wait to pick up some of the anniversary ones too!

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

Love me some more space stuff.

Gravatar
By in United States,

I expect that the first of those Overwatch sets, being described by Zusammengebaut as a bike, might be Junkrat and Roadhog's motorcycle, considering that they're both characters who were in the game at launch yet were absent from the first wave of Overwatch sets.

The Friends animal rescue subtheme sounds interesting, especially considering one of the sets is a submarine (a first for the theme).

The Batman sets sound slightly unexciting but perhaps some of them might include secondary villains or allies who haven't appeared in sets before, like Firefly in the recent mech set.

Gravatar
By in United States,

I'm curious if there will be any new/original series in the coming year? Something like Nexo Knights, Chima or Galaxy Squad?

Gravatar
By in United States,

Cool Star Wars sets! Hopefully they will be cheap in the u.s.

Gravatar
By in United States,

I'm surprised that they have Major Vonreg's TIE Fighter (from the Resistance animated show) without a counterpart Resistance ship like the Fireball? Maybe it was omitted and will appear?

Gravatar
By in United States,

No photos were allowed, huh?
(Then why do we have images of these)

Gravatar
By in Netherlands,

oof oww my wallet

Gravatar
By in United States,

$20 that 'moonbase' is a vehicle, because for only $50 it would almost have to be a vehicle with big wheels.

Glad they are remaking the Friends Amusement Park with real coaster pieces.

Sad to see that Disney Series 2 CMF will only have 18 and not 20+.

Gravatar
By in United States,

No ninjago? :(

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

Major Vonreg? Is that from one of the games? I have no idea who that is
Also, think that shield generator set will have four components or three like Assault on Hoth XD

Gravatar
By in United States,

A lot of interesting titles across a number of themes. Finally an Endor set - I think the last one was Ewok Village.

Gravatar
By in Brazil,

Fantastic SW sets! Can't wait to get the Slave I. Also, amazing the retro figures in the sets!

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

Wow, the Star Wars set prices feel really rip-offy.

Gravatar
By in Brazil,

On other hand, I'm disappointed to see that only two new Overwatch sets are going to be released. I really hope that the theme continues for a long time and not just this year.

Gravatar
By in Poland,

@Huw Luke magazine gift should be in 2019 sets beacuse he was in SW Magazine 2/2019

Gravatar
By in United States,

We're already getting another Clayface set? They first teased that fig digitally way back in '08 with the videogame and fans had a to wait nearly a decade to get him with The LEGO Batman Movie a couple years ago, but it's already soon enough to warrant a new one? I wonder if it'll be the same design from the movie and just built into new positions to slither through the Batcave or if their downscaling him from brick built to minifig? Either way, looking forward to it.

Finally a Bastion minifig! After getting to giant display versions of the character I was wondering when we'd get a more accurately scaled one, looks like I didn't have to wait long.

Gravatar
By in United States,

Wonder if we'll see more Unikitty?

Gravatar
By in United States,

100 different rides they could add to the Amusement Park theme and they decide to do yet another Carousel? Quite the let down after the roller coaster last year.

Gravatar
By in United States,

Any updates on the Jurassic park/world sets yet?

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

?Just heard the Post-Brexit price for the Liebherr though. £500 for less pieces than the £350 Porsche...? ?is this the future for UK Lego sales, an import tax premium?

Gravatar
By in Denmark,

"€449.99 for the Liebherr?!?!? Must be a typo or Technic fans are going to be outraged."

I would say they are going nuts!! 7 motors. YES! YES! YES!

Finally something really out of the extraordinary.

Gravatar
By in United States,

Sounds like it's going to be an expensive summer for me.

Gravatar
By in Netherlands,

Set number 42096 is the Porsche 911 RSR right? Would it be reused for the Car Transporter?

Gravatar
By in Germany,

Can't believe they still don't upgrade the 4500 Snowspeeder, it's almost the same model from 15 years ago!

And why the old style rebel helmets? New ones seem to be too big to fit into the cockpit construction. So one option was to redesign the Snowspeeder, but they went with the old design and the old helmets? Puzzled..

Gravatar
By in United States,

The townhouse and pet store seems to be another mini-modular like the older bike shop and cafe. I’m looking forward to converting it to a larger building to fit with the other modulars. I’d imagine the carousel to resemble somewhat of a smaller version of the one in winter village market, so it has the potential to be quite nice even with its limited number of parts at €50. The new technic flagship looks promising, but I wish they’d gone with some other color instead of white.

Gravatar
By in Singapore,

A TIE Interceptor set after 13 long years? Well it's about time. I still prefer the original trilogy version though. Normally I would buy the cheaper alternative, but googling Black Ace seems to show a different ship. Looks like this Major Vonreg (whoever he is) is the only option, but the price of the set is as always very discouraging.

Gravatar
By in United States,

ZUCKUSS!!!

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

All the dc ones sound epic.. Hope the batmobile vs joker pursuit has a new joker vehicle maybe a brick built motorcycle or van i made the Joker a van last year and a quad bike 3 years ago, also some of the friends sets sound cool for my daughters..

I would love to see more of the other heroes gets sets like Green lantern, the flash, maybe a Titans set and the legends of Tomorrow would be great in lego form ..

Gravatar
By in United States,

Ahaha yes! Some of those SW sets made me laugh with nostalgic joy (the Imperial Dropship? Yes Please!)

Gravatar
By in United States,

The Creator Carousel definitely seems to be a smaller one, given the price point. As such it won't really be in the same line as the Creator Expert sets.

Gravatar
By in Bulgaria,

I am so hungry for some genuine Lego Space even the City subtheme excites me.

Gravatar
By in Germany,

I read this and thought:

Technic, my once favorite theme, is really of no interest to me anymore. I mean, those prices must be a joke. If not, do TLG really believe anyone is going to buy these sets?

Architecture, Friends, Creator: all seem to yield at least some nice sets.

Superheros, Star Wars, Overblown: totally forgettable as per usual.

Then I saw City and went "WHAT". Classic space (sort of) integrated into City?
If done right, this could be a real winner. Finally.

Oh and @Your future president: Gas is used for heating homes. Petrol or Diesel is what powers the dinosaurs of the car world. But I agree, one day people (at least in the US) will ask "Remember what a gas station used to be?"
;-)

Gravatar
By in United States,

@The Teenage Brickster Based on the price, the carousel is probably a 3 in 1. It's hard to imagine them doing another large carousel so soon after the last one.

Gravatar
By in United States,

Are we getting anything for the 30th anniversary of Pirates?

Gravatar
By in United States,

I suppose the Marvel sets (not listed) would contain spoilers for Captain Marvel, Endgame and Far From Home.

Gravatar
By in United States,

Star Wars has been really disappointing as of late. Every "new" set is just a rehash of something they've already made. I understand that there are only so many sets you can make, but there are plenty of sets and minifigs they have missed on. Only new fig is Zuckuss and of course they put him in the most expensive set. I will buy the clone walker and that's it. Waiting for Jurassic, Harry Potter, toy story and disney minifigs.

Gravatar
By in United States,

A Bastion minifgure? Heck yeah!!

Gravatar
By in United States,

I am so excited for all of the Star Wars sets. I will get them all. A new imperial drop ship. I have seven of the original 7667 sets, so it looks like I will need to modernize my fleet!

Gravatar
By in United States,

My thoughts:
60231 - Why didn't they have this with the other fire sets in the winter???
60232 - At least the higher PPP was will truly be offset with larger pieces (unless it's more like 30 cents lol) (looking at you, 60132!)
60233 - Likely the $100 set like the Hospital in 2018 in the US.
31095 - Guess this will be a mid-sized one, around the same size as the yacht from 2018.
31096 - Been a long time since we had a larger 3 in 1 helicopter.
31097 - a 31026 successor maybe???

And 41327 might the the biggest Friends set ever, if it's going to be $150 in the US.

Gravatar
By in United States,

What I'm excited about:

1) Creator Carousel: The amusement park in my city is 3 x 2.5 baseplates (96 x 80 studs) so I don't have space (let alone the money) for the Expert amusement park rides. I currently have the Creator Pirate Rollercoaster, the Friends Space Ride, the Friends Bumper Cars & Swing Ride, and the Ferris Wheel from the Friends Amusement Park set. At this price point, I'm assuming it will be small enough to fit in my park. I just hope it can be motorized. I actually designed a fully-functional 24x24 stud four-horse carousel in LDD and planned to piece it out on BrickLink. Depending on how this looks/works, I may get it or I may just use my MOC. Since last year's roller coaster was an homage to the classic Pirates theme, I'm hoping that this year's carousel will be an homage to the classic castle theme. Then--between my roller coaster, my carousel, and my Friends space ride--I'll have a trifecta of classic-themed rides for my park.

2) City People Pack - Theme Park: Yay! People to enjoy my amusement park!

3) City Doughnut Shop Opening: This sounds really cool. The City theme needs more non-emergency buildings like this.

4) Creator Townhouse and Pet Store: This sounds like it's going to be another one of those 3-in-1 modular buildings. This subtheme has been disappointing since the Corner Deli, so I hope this puts it back on track. Small buildings are always a good thing for my city (though I already have the Pet Shop/Townhouse from the Expert subtheme).

5) Friends Amusement Park: I'm very curious to see how they updated this subtheme of Friends. If it comes with a good Ferris Wheel, I may trade in my current Friends Amusement Park set.

@CapnRex101 You should also mention that the Technic 4x4 with 3 motors (and a hub) is also Control+ app controlled. :)

Echo Base? Because it sold so well last time, eh? Looking forward to Zuckuss and... ah that's it.

Gravatar

Doughnut shop opening - I knew we wouldn’t get away without a Police City set.

By in Ireland,

I'm foaming in the mouth for the Imperial Dropship and Clone Scout Walker!

Gravatar
By in United States,

I’m excited for the City Space sets, and I’m preparing for them to let me down...Mars themed sounds good, but I’m thinking TLG will botch it...

Gravatar
By in United States,

I’m thinking City’s Mars Mission will use the redesigned Classic Space helmets that appeared in Benny’s Space Squad, perhaps with a new visor that fits better than current visors? They’ll probably be in white, though...

Gravatar
By in United States,

None of this looks interesting :(

Gravatar
By in United States,

Space? Maybe I'll finally be interested in City. That moonbase sounds very promising.

Gravatar
By in Netherlands,

So, after the 20€ "juniors" garbage truck this winter, we're now getting a 40€ "junior" gas station in the summer? I am an advocate of the "they're also toys" school of thinking, but these "not juniors in name" 4+ sets are taking up slots of "normal" lego sets, and I'm not sure I like that very much...

Gravatar
By in United States,

Any news of the (pirate?) ship

Gravatar
By in United States,

EXTREMELY happy that the 20th anniversary Star Wars minifigs are actually normally in sets, unlike 2007/2009.

Gravatar
By in Puerto Rico,

Lame that they reused Jyn Erso's head on Padme. It looks nothing like her.

Gravatar
By in France,

Lando with the snowspeeder ? What the Heck ?

Gravatar
By in Canada,

I'm a big fan of modding the creator line into full modulars. Can't wait to do that with the Pet Store and Townhouse. I hope to see plenty of brown and sand blue bricks in that set so that I can create it as I imagined!

Gravatar
By in Australia,

I hope the space/moon sets are realistic, or we received something special for the 50th anniversary of the moon landing. I'd love to see a UCS style lunar module/command module combo this year. The 20th anniversary SW sets are just rehashes, but the others interest me.

Gravatar
By in United States,

Hopefully echo base isnt a miserable flop

Gravatar
By in United States,

Another Batcave! I need to still finish my Batcave moc, but I’m hoping this one comes with another Alfred minifigure and I’m hoping Clayface is a minifigure or big figure. Really all I’m looking for is the DC sets.

Gravatar
By in United States,

Well...a lot of good titles, but I’ll have to wait and see details/pictures.

The Star Wars sets could be interesting although those prices are not to my liking. Since I’m only a partial fan, I may or may not get any.

And after seeing that list it will be an expensive summer, and that’s not counting HP or Marvel sets! Grrr...I guess I should start saving now.

Gravatar
By in Australia,

More Batman sets......yay :/

Gravatar
By in United States,

Major Vonreg is apparently from Star Wars Resistance, a kids TV show.
Same for the Black Ace ship

Gravatar
By in Canada,

Awesome, a Hoth Shield Generator set! Wouldn't it be funny if it was the missing 4th shield generator segment from Assault on Hoth, ONLY?! Hahahahaha....

All joking aside, I hope Lego gets it right this time.

Gravatar
By in Canada,

Jeeze. That DC lineup is just depressing. Not a single Shazam set even. Just a pile of tragic Ratman retreads. Again. :/

The TLM2 sets will surely impress though. So, I can deal with another horrifying wave of DC sets while waiting for next year's Wonder Woman offerings. :D

Gravatar
By in Australia,

I am going to get the clone walker and snowspeeder, maybe echo base and anakins podracer!

Gravatar
By in United States,

Ninjago is going to be ice/fire?
Sounds familiar.

Gravatar
By in United States,

I'm mainly exited about the ninjago stuff although I'm ready for the Star Wars too. But hold on, this says SUMMER SETS. What ever happened to the April/May wave? I thought they released sets then too. If they only do their August wave that means we only get two waves this year as well as some sporadic. I hope this is not the case...

Gravatar
By in United States,

Looking forward to the collectible minifigs and the architecture sets. 100$ empire state building? Sign me up. Also I like the new people pack.

Gravatar
By in United States,

Star Wars is just getting so expensive. City and Batman, yes!

Gravatar
By in Canada,

Really looking forward to finding out more about this year's Marvel sets. I know we won't know anything until closer to Avengers Endgame, but I'm still getting anxious to see how my wallet will be damaged this summer...

Gravatar
By in United States,

Lots of amusement park related sets across a lot of themes! I wonder if both the introduction of the new roller coaster elements and the popularity of the various sets created to use those elements helped motivate this.

I would feel a little iffy about Friends doing another amusement park set so soon after an entire Amusement Park subtheme in 2016, but I get the sense from the packaging of the current bumper car polybag as well as previous set rumors that referred to the bigger amusement park set as Heartlake City Beach that this set will be a boardwalk style beachside amusement park like Coney Island rather than a more fairground style amusement park like the earlier subtheme. That is enough to give me confidence that it can stand out as it’s own thing… plus, I suspect LEGO can far surpass the designs of some of those earlier sets by now!

Similarly, the three new animal rescue sets hearken back to the 2014 Jungle Animal Rescue sets, but with a decidedly more nautical bent that should have no trouble standing out. It seems like it will be a nice analogous theme to popular City subthemes like Coast Guard and Deep Sea Explorers, with a lot of the same sense of action, adventure, and heroism, but blended with Friends theme’s frequent focus on animal care and encounters, which helps such jobs/responsibilities feel more believable for the theme’s teenage protagonists.

Considering the superb quality of previous nautical and beach themed Friends sets like Dolphin Cruiser, Sunshine Catamaran, and Heartlake Lighthouse, I have high hopes for these three sets, I can very easily imagine picking up one or two, if not all three (after all, I have to fill the void left by LEGO Elves’ conclusion SOMEHOW).

The Ninjago theme’s tendency towards less grounded/realistic designs as well as less straightforward set names than City, Friends, or Creator makes it harder to predict the contents of such sets. But I suspect as always they’re going to be among the most appealing sets to me from the summer lineup. Some previous rumored names for 70677-1 were Destiny’s Bounty or Landbounty, so I kind of suspect it might be something like a “sand sailer” or “Jabba’s sail barge” version of the Destiny’s Bounty, much like how Destiny’s Shadow was sort of a riverboat version.

Nearly everything I’ve seen and heard about The LEGO Movie 2 (both in terms of sets and has been really appealing, so I’m excited to see all of these, but until I’ve seen pictures of all the sets and seen the movie itself, I don’t think it’ll be easy to make any sort of firm commitment on which sets to get. Some sets even from the first wave have been obvious must-haves but others are still “maybes”.

My thoughts:
60231 - Why didn't they have this with the other fire sets in the winter???)

Reply:
My guess is they are putting this as part of the city spaceport theme, much like 6614 Launch Evac 1 from 1995.

Gravatar
By in Venezuela,

Please let's direct our attention to the TLM2 sets' names.

"Shimmer & Shine Sparkle Spa!" - Isn't that the name of a Nick Jr. show? It's probably a coincidence, since Mattel still has the Nickelodeon building toy licence AFAIK.
"Queen Watevra's 'So Not Evil' Space" - *facepalm*. Please don't tell me she's gonna do the Face-Heel Turn... C'mon, Warner, you're better than Pixar in the self-awareness department...

Okay, now with that out of the way LOOK AT THOSE CITY NAMES! M O D E R N S P A C E ! ! !
The rest is whatevs.

Gravatar
By in New Zealand,

Still have my old Imperial Dropship battle pack so I'm pleasantly surprised they're making a new one. Nice that they're doing an army-building pack rather than including some unique figures, will definitely pick up several of those!

Gravatar
By in United States,

@MataNui2009:
After Harley Quinn in 2008, Clayface has been right up at the top of my Want List pretty much up until TLBM came out. But I wouldn't mind a smaller, non-brick-built version that I can pack with the non-TLBM Batman minifigs. And with an official Firefly to go with my two MOC versions, there aren't a ton of Batman villains I'm really itching to see made. Mad Hatter is probably top of my list now, though I know Hush would probably be a popular choice. I gotta say, though, that two Riddler sets and two Joker sets in the same wave seems a bit of a step backwards.

Gravatar

Seems like everyone is peeved over the inflated prices of the Star Wars sets.
Well, look at it this way. Now, not only does LEGO have to pay for the rights to the SW license but, BAM!, they also have to pay for the rights to use the Disney license on top of that which gets passed on to you the consumer.
Darth Disney thanks you.

Ninjago seems to have some sort of Ice Age theming. I wonder how that's gonna turn out? Hopefully it'll be different enough from year three of Chima.

Shimmer & Shine is the name of a children's show. Don't know much about it other than they've got fruit snacks based on the characters at my local supermarket that do pretty well, and it appears to take place in the Middle East. The name is probably just a coincidence, but I wonder if they'll pop up in TLM2. It would seem like a crazy crossover at first, but Agent Smith made it into the Batman Movie so who knows!

@dy_enforcer: One issue is that it's not in the same range. Though i did read that that set is part of a new City TV Series coming out (20x11 minutes). along with 60232 and 60233.

Wouldn't it be great if, for Lego Star Wars' 20th anniversary, in addition to having the special sets, they priced them like the originals?

Just a thought. I'm don't like the idea of paying twice the original price for what is practically a re-release of a great set that I already own.

As a fan of the "mini-modular" Creator subtheme who only owns the Corner Deli (and loves it), 31097 Townhouse and Pet Store has me super excited but I should probably temper my expectations just a little as based on the price, I'm guessing it's gonna be another Bike Shop & Café aka set I won't be able to afford anytime soon.

I'm curious what 60233 Doughnut Shop Opening is going to be all about with that price tag. I feel like there's going to be much more to it than just an opening ceremony for a donut shop (yes, I just used both spellings in the same paragraph). It can't be that grand all on its own, can it?

@The Teenage Brickster, benreader1148: Also based on the set number. 31xxx sets are Creator 3-in-1 sets.

@Lyonel McBaseplate-11: You mean Heel-Face Turn? FHTs are good guys going bad — the Queen is an antagonist. On the other hand I wouldn't be surprised if both Mayhem and Queen Watevra HFT'd by the end of the movie (after all this is supposed/speculated to represent the conflict between Finn and his younger sister, and you know young siblings have to patch up eventually...). I'd hate to see someone like Queen Watevra remain the bad one as it'd imply that being whatever you wanted to be is a bad thing.

Looks like a good year for Architecture...
More City Space... If we get a more Classic Space approach, yes. If it's rehashes of boring white shuttles, no.
True, it's a bit mundane, but I always liked my favourite DC character being the one with the most sets, so this Batman stuff has me relatively excited.
This 20th Anniversary stuff looks nice to me (Slave I's an improvement for minifigure scale and I really need a Podracer), but the rest sounds equally interesting to me. Duel on Starkiller, Endor Assault and Echo Base all sound like they have potential to me (not sure how they'll do the Shield Generator, though), but who is Major Vonreg?
I feel sorry for every Technic fan's wallet.

I’m first and foremost a Star Wars collector but I’m not too thrilled with a sixth Save I (even if it is one of my favorite ships) or any of the other 20th anniversary sets for that matter, but I am looking forward to finally being able to get a Bespin Lando minifig. Why he comes in the snowspeeder set though is a mystery to me...

I think they're confused between a tie interceptor vs tie fighter? I'll consider the "tie fighter" but will have to swap out the colours for those used in the last real tie fighter since it's a dead ringer for a rotj tie interceptor except for it's colours.

Otherwise I will be one of the first to buy the huge technic digger once it's on sale at least 30% off as usual. It's sure to be 750aud which is way too high for a 4000 piece technic set even with 7 motors.

Vonreg's from the new Star Wars: Resistance show, a Red Baron type First Order TIE pilot.

I'll get all LEGO Star Wars 20th anniversary sets. Gonna be expensive, but I want them all so bad!

Plus, the addition of classic minifigures is very nice and also a must have.

@aleydita - Past podracers have come with clear technic beams so most likely they will be part of the model.

Other than the two 20th anniveesatlry SW sets (CSW and Imp Dropship) and maybe Endor Assault and Both Generator I am not interested in anything else.

Good news: A Zuckuss minifig at last, the bounty hunters can be complete!
Bad news: the one figure I want, in a €120 set which has had four or five versions done already....

Well, interesting line up of sets. I'm curious about the creator carousel, will it be to small according to it's price, or is it a bargain? Space sets on the city theme? I wonder if Benny has anything to say about that. Let's see what TLG come up with this year, looking promising so far. Zusammengebaut, best spy ever!!

By in Switzerland,

Good tactics from TLG pulling the UCS Slave-I just in time for the new one to arrive, minifigs aside if one can find one UCS still on shelves by some retailer fro 200 EUR, why buy the almost half as big anniversary one?
I will be really disappointed if this is what 20th anniversary celebration means for TLG. This would be an opportunity to put down a truly great, contemporary set, and instead they are just pushing nostalgia again, and serving the secondary market with these "exclusive" minifigs.

Gravatar
By in United States,

A lot of these sets sound quite interesting, to say the least. I'm especially curious about the Creator Carousel, and what it will be like. I usually like some sets in LEGO City, but unfortunately none of the winter 2019 wave really appealed to me at all (apart from a few Great Vehicles), so I really hope that the 2019 summer wave makes up for it. The space sets we got in 2015, were IMO actually quite decent, so I really hope that this new wave will be well-executed.
I'm always curious as to what new Architecture buildings and structures will be released - Trafalgar Sq. and Empire State Bldg. sound good to me.

Gravatar
By in United States,

I just wonder why they're releasing another City fire truck for the summer wave, instead.
I almost forgot to mention, the price on the new Technic Liebherr 9800 - hmmmmmm......

An updated Slave I, my only weakness!

Gravatar
By in United States,

For those complaining about another Slave 1 and snowspeeder the fact is that it has been a while since you could get a minifig scale version of either without paying through the nose for UCS sets or Cloud City. I am excited for both.

Gravatar
By in United States,

Being a HUGE batman fan, i'm really disappointed we are getting MORE of the same Batman sets with the same villains. DC has a HUGE library of villains and heroes. Where are the Lantern Corps, other Justice Leaguer's and their villains?

Same for the Marvel sets, I get the synergy aspect, but Imd love to see more XMEN, Fantastic Four, and other non Avengers/Spiderman sets.

Oh, and YES for Theme Park people set!!!!

By in United States,

Ok, I only JUST figured out why random minifigures are included with the anniversary sw sets for example: Lando with snow speeder Luke with pod racer. There are a few possibilities 1: I believe that lego wants us to buy them all to collect all of the mini figures that we want to go with something else, brilliant move. 2: in some of the sets like the pod racer, Luke Skywalker is Anikan Skywalker's son and not only that but they're both good pilots and the kashyyyk battle including Darth Vader from III is bc the movie is about his transformation. As for the rest I think they just wanted to do all the main characters and didn't know where else to put them.
But what about the droids we're looking for, and Chewebacka?

@Brainslugged:
Only the second Anakin/Sebulba matchup had clear beams. The original podracers (Anakin/Sebulba, just Anakin, or the Pod Race bucket) all used tan bricks and plates to link the pieces together with the apparent intention that they'd blend into the piles upon piles of tan baseplates that every kid obviously owns and will arrange into the racecourse.

Right on time with a City/Space theme. Four years between the 2011 and 2015 releases and now another four years.

Will it be worth getting the new sets or keeping/buying the old ones?

Doughnut shop could be a fun addition to a city scene.

Amusement Park people pack? Oh, yes!!! Wife and I try to have scenes set up. One this year will be Fairground and we really want lots of people for our fair. Perfect!

Creator Townhouse and Pet Store - Might be a pass considering the Modular Pet Store. Or... a nice townhome could be a good addition to an urban city scene in conjunction with the Modular buildings.

The Star Wars set, at least with the euro prices, are massively overpriced. Hard pass. And the Stormtrooper pack comes with studshooter guns. Double Hard Pass.

By in Norway,

I'm not sure if it's beneficial for Lego to release just the set names like this, we always gets our hopes up only to be disappointed when the sets turns out to be much more basic than we imagined. I'll guess I'm most intrigued by the Pet Store, it would be really nice it was like a 16x16 recreation of the 10218 one (somewhat like the Sanctorium Showdown), hopefully they've at least abandoned that awful "3-in-1-modular" system.

I'm a little worried that Trafalgar Square will be nearly indistinguishable from the Buckingham Palace, and a *third* version of the Empire State reeks a bit of SW rehashing. Not sure what to expect from the City-Space sets, the Maintenance Shuttle can't be much more than a polybag (microscale+minifig?) and the Moon Base can't be too spectacular either. The same with the Donut Shop, it has potential for details like a huge "lowell sphere"-style sign, but I guess that's too much to expect from a City set.

I haven't bought a SW set in 5 years, and I don't think a bunch of outdated minifigs will change my mind. OTOH I heard some (rather unsubstantial) rumours about an UCS Yoda remake on rebelscum.com, that could be cool.

By in United Kingdom,

I like the new stormtroopers - they make me think of Bandai model kits which makes me happy! That said, I like the old one as well especially with some of the less stylised prints of recent years. I have no problem with them existing in the same Nipperverse. I do wish they would pack in proper blasters as well as the stud shooters though as my children only really play with them once for a couple of minutes then forget about them - they don’t offer that much extra play value for them and even they think they look silly

Gravatar

^ @Jackthenipper, you should talk with CS and say that even kids don't like stud shooters, and they should just stop (and it's from personal experience)

By in United States,

@SinKier Nick hopefully one of the still messing set numbers will be the Fireball; wouldn’t say no to some other Resistance ships either. Of course, I still bemoan everything we didn’t get from Rebels...

Ninjago sounds like it’ll be interesting; seems like Zane might finally be getting his own bad guy rather than having to clean up after Lloyd.

And here I was thinking I didn't have to worry about spending money on any new LEGO sets in 2019. I'll have to wait to see what the City Space sets look like before I make a final decision on purchasing them but I'm tentatively excited. My wallet isn't. On the other hand, I've been toying with tracking down either the 2011 or 2015 City Space sets because I really want some City Space sets. Now I may not have to.

@ComfySofa: That was last summer's subtheme, and the storyline was resolved in the show, so it should be no surprise that the subtheme for this summer's sets will be different.

Thanks Lyichir. I was hoping for more Dragon Hunter sets and figures to expand our collection, but I guess I'll have to MOC some smaller vehicles to support the Dieselnaut now, and mix up the figures I have doubles of... :)

The reason Lando Comes with The snowspeeder is because they were put in randomly.
