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 –
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 –
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 –
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 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 –
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 –
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 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.
Lego Minifigures Series 13 –
