I dont really care about the "Hidden Side" aspect of these sets, but the builds look on point. Seeing these new images is making me reassess whether I will buy any.

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

cool like the boat and the Lab

Gravatar
By in United States,

The highschool looks similar to a ninjago set of the ghost season.

Gravatar
By in Netherlands,

The fact that it can be used as a normal set with normal people adds to the value, a single picture doesn't really show that.

Each "civilian" has a green head/hairpiece, as well as a normal one included.

Also the green parts are only shown when triggering some built in mechanism, so the school and train could just be a regular school/train (with some stickers that give it a more dirty or worn look)

Gravatar
By in Czech Republic,

Is there any way to know which of the prints are stickers?

By in United Kingdom,

Love most of them hidden side is a great theme.. HOWEVER with some tweeking that boat would be perfect in an Aquaman creation: Hugo strange could move into that lab: spiderman Hanging off a side window of the school bus: that truck would make a great set of wheels for Harley Quinn and the bike could easily Ghost Riders : & theres always a Train for superman to prevent from being Derailed, and Lastly post Apocalyptic WAYNE MANOR:

Awesome lego..

will likely get the boat, skip the others. no smartphone and my old tablet probably can't run the app, so might just wait for double VIP points to get it

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

Does anyone else find the hoodie-hat combo a bit 'down with the kids'? Or am I showing my age? :p

Gravatar
By in Netherlands,

I'd buy the graveyard and the boat with no consideration for any app involved.

Gravatar
By in United States,

I'd comment about how these sets don't fit my needs and I don't like the essence of them but I know I'll be smeared as an immoral individual for not bowing down to every pile of plastic bricks so I'll refrain from commenting so.

Let me just say this: I'll spend my money elsewhere.

Gravatar
By in United States,

If only they would put a Zero head on that ghost dog, it would be perfect

Gravatar
By in United States,

I’d love to see just a normal high school. I guess I could get this one and remove all the non normal parts and it might look ok. I don’t know still though.

Gravatar
By in United States,

@Your future president

Part of the play feature of the high school is that it can transform from a regular high school to a spooky one

Gravatar
By in United States,

I like to put out a Halloween display in October with the 10228 Haunted House and 75903 Haunted Lighthouse, and I think the Hidden Side Graveyard would look really nice between them. I like the minifigs that this series has, and the ghost dog is great.

Gravatar
By in United States,

These look good, but I have zero interest in getting any.

Gravatar
By in Netherlands,

Hadn't even seen the ghost dog. Probably pick that one up on clearance too.

Gravatar
By in Canada,

Love the first three, the others don't do anything for me.

Gravatar
By in United States,

@Misterbricks: Is it? I’ve seen that look around here and there since my childhood in the ‘90s, so I wasn’t under the impression it was some sort of recent trend.

That said, I’m always a fan of trendier/more casual fashions in Lego, since themes like City often tend to be dominated by professional uniforms for the dominant subthemes, while many other themes tend to favor fantasy/sci-fi/historical clothes instead of modern fashion. I remember being excited for the Agents Robo Attack set back in the day for including three whole civilian figs each with brand-new torso prints.

Gravatar
By in Canada,

Very cool idea for kids but not for me...nice hoodies though, I gotta say.

Gravatar
By in Singapore,

What baffles me the most are the generic single-word names for these sets. Are they seriously the final names?

Everything else, I like and/or see potential in, including the AR aspect.

Gravatar
By in United States,

Maybe the boat, and I would modify it into a tug for my harbor. Minifigs are fine, but that 'captain' with the tentacles would go in the re-sell pile.

Gravatar
By in United States,

@earth_girl83: Don’t be so quick to resell! Every “possessed” fig also comes with alternate “normal” faces and headgear. Which means a fair deal of new civilian figs for people who prefer more grounded subject matter.

Gravatar
By in United States,

Besides for the train, the PPP on all of these seem excellent.

Gravatar
By in United States,

Thinking of getting the lab, but probably nothing else. I hope Lego gets what it deserves for these sets. They put a lot of thought into the builds and play features.

Gravatar
By in Netherlands,

Love the graveyard for a Halloween display, the school looks great but I doubt I'll buy it since it doesn't fit in with the rest of my collection. Cool new alligator with the boat and really like the hoodie based on pictures. The diner looked cool in early pictures so waiting to see how it turns out

Gravatar
By in United States,

I like them. Plus, no Disney tax.

Gravatar
By in Netherlands,

I love the bus! Not enough in my LEGO world so definitely pick that up. Probably the grave yard to go with the Haunted House (Monsters theme). And the boat. What the hell, I'll probably click 'add to my basket' when the time comes ;-)

Gravatar
By in United States,

Finally...so many crimes and fires in my city, now something for my Ghostbusters to do! Seriously digging nearly every one of these sets, well done!

Gravatar
By in Italy,

Great builds: the bus, the high school, the boat... Just about all of these sets may very well integrate with various themes like city, monsters, ninja and so forth. Now, about the hidden side playability, I'll leave it to kids 40 to 50 years younger than me.

Gravatar
By in United States,

Buss and that is it.

Gravatar
By in Turkey,

I Love these sets, they look like many hours of play for a kid. I know I would be very captivated by that theme as a kid. I wonder if this isn't too similar to rumoured Stranger Things theme, the premise for both themes is quite similar.

Gravatar
By in Brazil,

They're all very interesting, but I really want to know why Lego choose such generic names for the sets, it's funny.

Gravatar
By in Germany,

Part-wise some really cool sets there, don't know about the actual play feature tho but who cares, right? ^^

Gravatar
By in United States,

Definitely some good piece to price ratios on these sets . . . with the exception of the train.

I still think that the AR aspect of these sets is a bit of a reach . . . not sure how many kids have access to an AR capable phone?? Or how many parents do either??

Gravatar
By in United States,

So many of the sets look good to me. The boat, bus, and high school are standouts.

Gravatar
By in United States,

So glad you get a ghost dog in EVERY set!!!

Gravatar
By in Poland,

This theme is so good for idea but Im not sure if I like how lego focuss on app once again.

Gravatar
By in United States,

@SinKiller Nick

Nonsense, plenty of kids have access to AR capable phones. In fact, the rise of mobile devices is arguably what's killing the toy industry right now (see: Toys'R'Us)...

Gravatar
By in United States,

That train is one of the ugliest railroad-related sets LEGO has ever released. And that's saying something...

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

Love the bus.

Gravatar
By in United States,

@lordofdragonss: I don't really see what makes it too different than the many LEGO.com online games in the 2000s. LEGO is simply adapting to changes in what platforms kids are going to for entertainment, as well as to new technologies that help them reduce the gap between the sorts of electronic gaming experiences kids have enjoyed for decades and the physical experiences that remain the core of the LEGO brand.

Gravatar
By in Switzerland,

I'm looking forward to having this new piece: the "train ramp", I hope that they will really release it as the piece shown on the train picture (far right) is apparently a prototype only, there is no Lego logo on the studs yet, perhaps a test mould piece...

Gravatar
By in Canada,

The sets look great, but I am most interested in the graveyard. It would be perfect to use to do build a scene from The Graveyard by Neil Gaiman.

Gravatar
By in United States,

The seafood diner is my favorite. Hopefully we get the official images for that soon!

Gravatar
By in United States,

@Robot99 . . . having access to a mobile device is very different from having access to an AR capable device. To have AR you need a very recent iPhone model that in most cases is upwards of $1000. My phone isn't even AR capable . . .

Gravatar
By in United States,

@SinKiller Nick: Not quite... ARkit is supported on iPhones as far back as the $250 6S. Which, yes, means that iPhones from before 2015 (including my own) won't work, but you don't necessarily have to spring for the latest and greatest either.

Gravatar
By in United States,

What is that rail piece on the train? Is it intended to transfer the train from the rails to say a table or the floor were kids may push it?

Gravatar
By in United States,

@xboxtravis7992: Yes... and vice versa. I reckon its inclusion in this set is because the train has to be arranged straight on the rails to be detected by the app, and thus pushing it up the ramp makes for a simpler and more reliable way to ensure that all the wheels are positioned between the rails correctly. But it should also be useful for train fans, especially for re-railing long custom trains without having to do so manually for each car.

Gravatar
By in Austria,

THIS is lego for me, so creative! i haave to have this :D

Gravatar
By in United States,

That ghost beard will work tremendously for Davy Jones!

Gravatar
By in United States,

I hope someone online re-builds the bus to make it look like a normal school bus.

Gravatar
By in Australia,

Love the tug boat. The school and train are ok. Especially once all the silly bits are removed from them.

Gravatar
By in Germany,

Besides that I just don't like the theme, is it really a good thing to put the same minifigs into every single set?

Gravatar
By in United States,

Not really interested in the sets themselves, but there's loads of nice parts in them. I'm especially fond of the tan alligator.

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

The sets are kinda cool, but still think that the AR aspect of them will bomb, and the box art really doesn't help.

Gravatar
By in United States,

@wasn: I mean, yes, every set contains Jack and/or Parker, but they're the main characters, so that shouldn't be surprising (much like you wouldn't be surprised by Indiana Jones showing up in every Indiana Jones set, or Batman showing up in every Batman set). And there's actually two variants of each of them (with jacket/without) spread between the sets in order to lower the amount of repetition a bit.

Gravatar
By in Australia,

So is this the first official 3D Printer in a set? Might have to open up a 3D Printing Shop in my Lego City now.

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

That boat is great, superb design and really good colour palette used.

Gravatar
By in United States,

Cool looking sets, but have you seen the box art? Put your logo back where it belongs, LEGO.

Gravatar
By in United States,

The boat is one of the best looking sets of 2019, for $24 it's an awesome fun looking set.

But yeah the boxes are the worst in LEGO history.

Gravatar
By in United States,

I like the look of these. I am thinking the boat will go very well with the Old Fishing Store. I’ve been hoping another similar building or related item would come along. This may just do the trick with a few slight adjustments.

Gravatar
By in Singapore,

@SpaceCadet: Heh, you would have hated G1 Bionicle. The LEGO logo NEVER appeared on the top left corner of any Bionicle set box that didn't have the LEGO TECHNIC branding (and even some of the sets with that branding put it in a different corner).

Oh and LEGO Dinosaurs. Those canisters were so unusual you wouldn't even realize they were LEGO until you looked in the right places (on the lid, which had LEGO studs, or on a non-obvious side of the canister where the logo was printed).

@Lyichir: I'm glad I'm mostly OK at rerailing trains as it is, because I don't have room for a siding dedicated just to that helper part. (My train layout has no sidings at all!)

Gravatar
By in United States,

Am I the only one who saw that bus and immediately thought, "Miss Frizzle"?

Gravatar
By in United States,

Love the Graveyard. Might get the School. The Lab is pretty interesting too. A few of the others have some interesting parts so maybe if I get a good deal on them. I have zero interest in the AR aspect of these sets, I just want the unusual bricks. When they first announced them I was afraid the prices were going to be higher to pay for the app.

Gravatar
By in Austria,

I'll probably get the boat. I think it'll look great next to the old fishing store on my shelf.

Might get the graveyard and add upon it on a 16x32 baseplate to even out the 48x32 Assemby Square in my town set up.

Gravatar
By in Australia,

That bus is cool, and Lego’s first school bus apart from Friends?

Does it have a “normal” mode though?

Gravatar
By in Australia,

I genuinely don't mind the train.

What worries me is that Lego will use the "augmented reality" thing as an excuse to jack up the prices to ridiculous levels. I mean, then it's just a matter of waiting them out (because the stores will end up clearancing them out once they sit on shelves gathering dust for long enough). I feel like there's potential, in these things, for some good additions to a normal Lego city. I like the graveyard, I like the fishing boat, and I like the train (some diesel engines aren't as pretty as others. This one has a low-cost, industrial vibe to it, and I like that). The spooky side isn't doing much for me, and I do worry about the cost.

Gravatar
By in Canada,

Wow, this is a must buy series, the sets look wonderful!!! Very cool series... can't wait.

Gravatar
By in United States,

These are actually really cool and pretty well priced in the US

Gravatar
By in Netherlands,

@Zordboy
The prices on this theme are not jacked up at all, and well within non-licensed averages.

Only the train set is quite a bit above the norm, but that might have it's reasons due to larger parts, and train wheels/magnets and such.

Gravatar
By in Australia,

I just really can’t understand.
Bus has 9 less parts and is $30 USD cheaper than the train.
You can’t tell me some track is worth $30 extra USD, I hate to think of the price difference in AUD, and poor New Zealand.
Even bigger parts and magnets and wheels, as just mentioned, cant be $30 USD more per set.

Gravatar
By in Latvia,

Why do these photos look like renders? No matter, I really like the school! It will look great in my town

Gravatar
By in United States,

@Jhandford: I feel like even besides the track the train set seems bigger overall. The locomotive (excluding wheels and track) is around 6x25x8, with two cars each measuring around 6x10x7 and a station measuring around 10x16x11. Contrast with the bus, which excluding wheels is about 8x34x7 with a 4x6x7 port-a-potty. Overall the train set adds up to a much bigger playset even if it’s separated into smaller individual builds.

The reason the piece count isn’t also higher probably has to do with the number of larger parts in the train set — not just the five pieces of track, but also the 6x24 locomotive base, two bat/dragon wings, four 1x6x5 boxcar panels, two 6x8 station roof slopes, two 2x4x5 half cylinder panels, 8x16 station platform plate, eight 3x6x2 wheel holders, etc.

By comparison, the bus seems to use a whole lot of smaller bricks, plates, and windows to form its overall shape/structure — I’m sure there are some large plates or Technic bricks holding the chassis together, but not a whole lot else stands out that would add a whole lot of size/substance with not a lot of pieces.

Gravatar
By in United States,

It's like these were made just for my creepy kid (and me). Love love love.

Gravatar
By in Australia,

@aanchir,
Yea you make a very good point, I didn’t take any of that into account. I’ll still get both =]

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

School and boat look great. Also, anyone else astonished by the value for money, particularly in GB? Very nice

Gravatar
By in Australia,

Couldn't they think of better names.Bus.Truck.Very original.

Gravatar
By in United States,

If the theme continues for a few years we will get 'Blue Truck' as a set. Is that a better name? ;)

Gravatar
By in Australia,

@TeriXeri

"The prices on this theme are not jacked up at all, and well within non-licensed averages."

Yeah, but the Australian prices aren't listed. The train will easily be over a hundred, and probably over by a *lot*.

Gravatar
By in United States,

Someone should tell Warner Bros Animation and Cartoon Network about to do a TV adaptation of LEOG's Hidden Side pronto!
