Bricktober Mini Modular Sets Coming Soon

Lego has done it again. They will be partnering with Toys R Us again this year to bring us another wave of mini-modular sets. The previous wave (October 2014) was super popular so it’s a no brainier for Lego to bring them back this year. These will be available in October at Toys R Us stores. No word yet on the exact dates or what purchase amount will be necessary to get the set free. Without further ado, here are the images of the 4 upcoming sets.

Lego 2015 Exclusive Sets List

Lego Exclusives Banner 2015

Lego will surely have another big year with exclusive sets (aka the ones that will cost you an arm and a leg but be totally worth it in all their awsomeness). So far in 2015, Lego has released the USC Star Wars Slave I and the Detectives Office modular building. Here is a list of what is rumored to be coming out throughout this year. Note that some of these will surely be available to VIP members before the specified month.

March – Marvel Superheroes Helicarrier (see my post about it here https://connorslegoblog.wordpress.com/2015/01/29/lego-avengers-helicarrier-revealed/)

May –  Simpsons Kwik-E-Mart and USC Star Wars TIE Fighter (Assumed to be released on May the 4th)

June – Creator Ferris Wheel

July – Ferrari F40

September – Ninjago Temple

October  – USC Star Wars Hoth Echo Base and the next Winter Village set

I’m most excited about the Hoth Base personally. I collect the Hoth sets and this one will surely put me back a good chunk of change. I just hope they include some new elements that weren’t in the previous version 7879 Hoth Echo Base.

What will Lego be releasing in January 2015?

January is usually a really big month for new Lego. Here is a compilation of what we know we will be seeing when the new year rolls around.

Lego Star Wars – UCS (Ultimate Collectors Series) Slave I –

Lego UCS Slave 1

This set has been a long time coming for Star Wars fans. All 1196 pieces will be available for $199.99 on the first of the year.

Lego Disney Princess (Frozen) – Elsa’s Sparkling Ice Castle –

Lego Frozen

I have a feeling that this one is going to be insanely popular, considering the movie was outrageously popular.  The set includes 292 pieces and is priced at $39.99. All the main characters from the movie are included, Elsa, Anna, and Olaf.

Lego Ideas – Birds –

Lego Ideas Bird

This is the upcoming set from the Lego Ideas line, which if you don’t know is the site where users can upload set ideas, and then have other users “support” them. Once an idea reaches 10,000 supporters it’s reviewed by Lego, and possibly made into an official set. This set includes 3 bird builds and their stands. A bluejay, a hummingbird, and a robin can be built out of 580 included pieces in this set. A meager price tag of $44.99 can be found on this box.

Lego Bionicle – 13 Brand New Sets

Lego Bionicle Reboot

Lego Bionicle is getting a re-boot in 2015. 13 new sets are planned for January. The set pictured is called Protector of Jungle and will be available for $9.99

The Lego Movie – Double-Decker Couch + 2 Other Sets –

Lego Movie Jan 2015

The Lego Movie will be getting 3 new boxes on New Years Day. This set is the one I am excited about, it’s called Double-Decker Couch, and will have 197 pieces for just $19.99. I don’t really buy the Lego Movie sets but this one I plan on picking up. It has most of the main characters, and a couple of cool builds that are in the movie. It’s also fairly cheap considering it has 4 minifigures, 1 figure, and a couple of builds. Another set is Batman & Super Angry Kitty Attack, which will include 115 pieces for $9.99. That set will include a brand new version of Batman, which will excite superhero fans. Finally, Bad Cop Car Chase, will be include 292 pieces, and cost $29.99. Lego is still trying to keep The Lego Movie theme alive until the second movie is released. They aren’t doing too bad of a job either, I’m still interested. 🙂

Lego Creator – Detective’s Office –

Lego Detective's Office

This will be the newest edition to the Modular Buildings collection. It has 2 building, the detectives office, and a barber shop, both are connected with a build that appears to include a couple of balconies and a walkway. The set will have a whopping 2262 pieces for a very reasonable cost of $159.99.

Lego City – Swamp Police and More –

Lego Swamp Police

Lego is moving on from the Forest Police sub-theme, and moving to the swamp. 6 Swamp Police sets are planned including the one pictures which is called Robber Swamp Hideout. 5 “Construction” themed sets, and another 7 sets are also planned for 2015. Note: 5 of these City sets were released on Lego.com, but are already back ordered.
