Translated From French Via Brickset User Rancorbait
"2014 will mark the arrival of the range Ultra LEGO Agents , which kockamania.hu has unveiled the logo above on his facebook page .
Brought up to the day of the outing 2008/2009 Agents range? New Action / espionage oriented concept? Want trampling flowerbeds Playmobil whose series Top Agents and Top Agents 2.0 are marketed since 2010 and are probably themselves inspired LEGO products Agents?
If I believe the first descriptions of sets 2014 published on Eurobricks , there is a similar content to that proposed by LEGO in 2008/2009: An impressive truck type Command Center , the mechs , planes, etc ...
Color side Black and Lime apparently coast on these new sets, two colors that are also found on some sets of Top Agents range from 2.0 Playmobil.
However, keep in mind that the visuals that are described are from the catalog retailer and are therefore not the final sets that will be marketed versions:
70160 Riverside Raid - 88 pieces
70161 Tremor Track Infiltration - 241 pieces
70162 Infearno Interception - 313 pieces
70163 Toxikita's Toxic Meltdown - 429 pieces
70164 Hurricane Heist - 589 pieces
70165 Ultra Agent Mission HQ - 1048 pieces"

Re: 2014/15 Theme Discussion

Post by Octan on 1/22/2014, 10:46 pm

Yesterday, myself, DrDaveWatford, 'Big' Pete from FBTB, and Gary, the Brickish Ambassador, visited the LEGO stand at the London Toy Fair. I got back late and was tired hence not posting this until today.

It's the first toy fair of the season (Germany is in a couple of weeks and New York a couple after that) and for reasons I've never been able to fathom, LEGO does not allow photography which is rather odd given that in a couple of weeks, they do. Also, much of the what's on show is very much pre-production with blank minifigs standing in for the real ones, prototype pieces in the models and so on. Nevertheless, you can get a good impression of what's coming and in this article I will attempt to remember what I saw and give you my opinion on it, with the help of set listings from All About Bricks who have done a great job of capturing prices and other details.

So, here goes...

Star Wars

75048 The Phantom £19.99
75049 Snowspeeder £34.99
75050 B-Wing £49.99
75051 Jedi Scout Fighter £59.99
75052 Mos Eisley Cantina £64.99
75053 The Ghost £69.99
75054 AT-AT £109.99
75055 Imperial Star Destroyer £119.99

The original trilogy sets look pretty good. The Cantina was perhaps a little on the small side, but does come with three band members, Greedo, Han and a couple of other figures. It's a 'concertina' design so can fold into a square building, or fold out into a long wall. It comes with a sandspeeder which looks much the same as all the others but featured new 'salmon pink' parts.

The snowspeeder and B-Wing looked okay, but much the same as previous versions, the ISD was smaller than the previous minifig one but, according to DrDave, a much sturdier design. The other 'extended galaxy' sets were just plain weird and did not appeal at all. The AT-AT was also smaller than previous versions.

Legends of Chima

More Speedorz and constraction figures which AAB has listed but which were of little interest to me, and

70141 Vardy’s Ice Vulture Glider £17.99
70142 Eris’ Fire Eagle Flyer £24.99
70143 Sir Fangar’s Sabertooth Walker £34.99
70144 Laval’s Fire Lion £39.99
70145 Maula’s Ice Mammoth Stomper £69.99
70146 Flying Phoenix Fire Temple £89.99

Apparently a crack has formed in the earth's crust and the Chi has fallen into it. Thus the lions and eagles are battling with long-extinct animals, mammoths and sabretooth tigers that has been awakened (or something like that!). It looked pretty awful and far too abstract if I'm honest although it did have some cool figures, including a mammoth but they were only visible in pictures.

Friends

41030 Olivia’s Ice Cream Bike £9.99
41031 Andrea’s Mountain Hut £9.99
41032 First Aid Jungle Bike £12.99
41033 Jungle Falls Rescue £17.99
41034 Summer Caravan £19.99
41036 Jungle Bridge Rescue £24.99
41059 Jungle Tree Sanctuary £24.99
41038 Jungle Rescue Base £44.99
41058 Heartlake Shopping Mall £79.99

The girls have taken to the jungle. There were some interesting new vine pieces evident, but not many actual animals: just monkeys from the CMF series (IIRC) bears and pandas, so God only knows what part of the world it's set in!

The Animals collectables looked interesting and series 6 will feature a lion, seal and panda.

Ultra Agents

70160 Riverside Raid £9.99
70161 Tremor Track Infiltration £17.99
70162 Inferno Interception £24.99
70163 Toxikita's Toxic Meltdown £34.99
70164 Hurricane Heist £49.99
70165 Ultra Agents Mission HQ £79.99

The return of the popular and, it seems, successful, Agents theme. However I was very disappointed with them. There was no coherent design or colour scheme that had made the previous theme appealing, they were just a mish-mash of odd-designed vehicles in strange colours. The big selling point seems to be not the contents of the sets but an 'augmented reality' mission based app that is activated using codes in the boxes.

Ninjago

70727 X-1 Ninja Charger £34.99
70728 Battle for Ninjago City £89.99

I can remember nothing about the former set but the latter looked pretty similar to the last Ninjago temple, a oriental-style building set on a rock and thus fairly boring.

City

60032 Arctic Snowmobile £4.99
60033 Arctic Ice Crawler £9.99
60034 Arctic Helicrane £24.99
60035 Arctic Outpost £34.99
60036 Arctic Base Camp £69.99

Now things start to get a bit more interesting. These sets are not unlike the previous Arctic range from 2000. They are predominantly orange and the designs look realistic, particularly the ice crawler. The story here is that the Arctic is being mined for crystals found in blocks of ice. It features polar bears, the same as the new-style bear, and huskies which were very cute.

60050 Train Station £49.99
60051 High-speed Passenger Train £99.99
60052 Cargo Train £139.99

Train fans will be pleased by the news of a new range of City trains but I suspect will be disappointed by their execution. The station in particular was very disappointing and like no station I've ever seen. The passenger train consists of three cars which are white. It uses a new huge great nose piece for the front and back and thus stylistically looks the same as every other City passenger train we've seen over the last 10 years or so.

The cargo train, however, was much better. The locomotive is blue and yellow and based on US-designs, like the Maersk and BNSF locos. It comes with three wagons, one for carrying cable drums, one for containers (in this case a small tank which fits on the back of a truck) and an open cattle truck complete with cow. While this looked great there hasn't been anything even remotely like it on European railways since the 19th century. It also features an overhead gantry crane a bit like this one, track, motor, battery and remote control.

Creator

31023 Yellow Racers £19.99
31024 Roaring Power £19.99
31026 Bike Shop & Café £64.99

The first two are 'more of the same' but the bike shop and cafe were quite interesting. They are a bit like mini modular buildings, fairly realistic with a lot of internal details. They are hinged so can fold into square buildings or out to a single wall.

Mixels

All 27 mixels from the first three series were on show and to my mind they were 'best in show'. They are innovative, cheap, highly collectable and most of all fun. The first series features red, yellow and black creatures, the other two contain purple, lime green, blue, brown, orange and another colour that I can't remember. Apparently the cartoon will air in the UK, on the Cartoon Network. To be honest, these were the only sets I saw that I can't wait to get hold of.

HERO Factory

44023 ROCKA Crawler £8.99
44024 TUNNELER Beast vs. SURGE £8.99
44025 BULK Drill Machine £12.99
44026 CRYSTAL Beast vs. BULK £12.99
44027 BREEZ Flea Machine £12.99
44028 SURGE & ROCKA Combat Machine £24.99
44029 QUEEN Beast vs. FURNO, EVO & STORMER £34.99

The second half of year HF sets see our heroes heading underground to battle with fearsome creatures. The most interesting aspect were 'cocoon'-like pieces that the HF minifigs can be put inside once captured.

The Hobbit

Three sets will be available in October. They did not have names. One was a small rock piece, the middle-priced one was another part of Lake-town, a tower IIRC, and the largest featured Smaug. It was a nondescript structure made predominantly from sand green. I'd like to tell you what minifigs are included but I can't remember.

Turtles

There are two different Turtles series -- actually three if we count the one coming out in the 'Juniors' range -- this year: sets based on the cartoon which feature bright colours, and sets based on a movie coming out later in the year. These were just labelled 'Ninja Turtles' and were 'darker' than the cartoon ones: even the turtles, which are dark or olive green.

Super Heroes

Two ranges of Super Heroes were on display which I didn't much attention to to be honest. Under cover, but revealed to us were the three Guardians of the Galaxy sets. As usual with SH sets they looked to be very minifigure-focussed with weak supporting vehicles, although the largest, some sort of blue and yellow spacecraft, looked fairly interesting. These are apparently out in June.

Technic

Three sets to be released in the summer: a bulldozer, a 4WD pickup truck and a Volvo-licensed remote-controlled trench digger.

The LEGO Movie

Just the three sets we already have pictures of. Benny's Spaceship looked bigger than expected and will cost £70, IIRC.

That's just about it. By all means ask questions but don't expect me to remember every little detail, but hopefully DrDave will be able to pitch in too.


Thank you Brickset for this wonderful report!

The LEGO Movie opened this Weekend at #1 with rave reviews. It looks like the large way (15-sets!) has paid off and as the movie has been a surprise smash hit across the boards, with a 95% on rotten tomatoes! There is some rumors of a sequel in the works so we might just be talking about these sets round two this time next year!

Toyark has posted some great pictures from Toyfair, despite smothering the images with their watermark. They show some unseen views on this years coming sets that should get you really excited for the summer wave!

Mixels and most other early summer waves are up for sale, finally, in the US. They are very cheap, compared to what we have seen in the past, so be sure to grab some and post here with your results.

May 26, 2017 apparently will be the date of the release of The LEGO Movie 2! After smashing the box office and getting early-awards buzz no one is surprised that a sequel is not that far off.

Apparently my years old Doctor Who april fools joke, check the front page, wasn't too far off as LEGO is now allowing Cuusoo sets to feature the Doctor. This is a rather weird development as a clone brand "Characterbuilding" seems to hold those rights currently. We are really not sure what is going on, or why this suddenly hit with nothing motivating it.

It looks like we will be getting our first Miniland scale yet in the form of a park promotional after years of the size being a mainstay at parks and conventions alike.

"The decision has been made to change the packaging for future “LEGO exclusive” Star Wars sets to include the UCS seal and de-link from the core Star Wars packaging. In addition to the packaging change, an update has been made to the building instructions. The building instructions will have additional pages detailing the model’s connection to the movie and its development process. Much as the Creator Expert badge differentiates the larger models from the core assortment, the goal of this change is to better communicate to builders that these sets represent our biggest building challenge in the LEGO Star Wars theme."

LEGO just the following concerning the designation of the Sandcrawler as USC despite not having the tell-tale plaque that every set prior had.

The Brick Popper! by Brickset, on Flickr

Brickset has posted about a new third party brick separator that I think would be of interest to all of you. I am not sure why you would need one, nor how long it will last will all that copy write misuse, but it sure looks more durable then the LEGO one!

LEGO has seemed to really fall for value packaging this year with Shop at Home adding upwards of ten Product Collections that combine several sets for a lower cost. I am surprised they are pushing this so hard, as in the past it has never worked, but I guess it will same some of us a lot of money.

Just quick update on the Volvo Backloader, eurobricks (tiss tiss) staff member Superkalle has had a hand in the development. He is a top notch engineer and technic builder so this model will be great to get our hands on for sure.

We just got some interesting news from Brickset about the LEGO Movie Blue-Ray!
"
We've just received interesting news about the Blu-ray release of The LEGO Movie from someone in the US. Unfortunately they haven't provided a name or email address so I can't corroborate it, but it seems plausible:

"A friend of mine just took a survey about the collector's edition of The LEGO movie, and showed me an image of the package, including the exclusive minifigure. It's the prologue version of Vitruvious with normal eyes, wearing a grey headband, has a printed amulet and robes. It appears that it's only included with the collector's edition that includes DVD, Blu Ray, 3D and digital copy of the movie.""

Here is some leaked, possibly fake, box art for the special edition release of The LEGO Movie. We can see the touted Vitruvious figure prominently displayed taking up over a forth of the box.

Due to several errors it is probable that this box art is fake. Noted is the red logo on the red hat, the lack of studio branding and the departure from the rest of the marketing material. This also brings into question that we may get a better minifigure then the one shown!  Scream

Bristol Post is apparently offering free polybags next week (Monday-Friday). We are not sure what polybags will be offered, but it sure seems strange for a local post to offer a promotion like this. It is questionable if this is in cahoots with TLG or rather an independent promotion using store purchased polybags. Question

LEGO just released a regional (norse) video for The LEGO Movie with some additional content western audiences have yet to see! It is worth it for the voice acting alone, despite not being able to understand it.

Brickset has posted pictures of a rather rare Hero Factory polybag featuring the new minifigure sized figures! It appears to not be listed on Bricklink yet, nor for sale on Ebay so this may be our only look at this model for a little while.

Here are the first pictures of the new Simpsons collectable Minifigures! They look really good, and the heads appear to be the higher quality ones despite the complex molding. We can't wait for them to reach the market.
