New LEGO Elements in 2015 – Part 2

(Written by BLProductions)

Today we are going to continue out previous discussion about new LEGO elements coming in 2015. In Part 1 of this series (see: New LEGO Elements in 2015 – Part 1) we covered nine new pieces. At the time of writing that article I knew of only about 18 new elements, but since then I have learned that there are at least 31 (4 of which are minifig parts)! This time I will attempt to cover more of these new pieces – particularly the interesting ones – and since there are quite a few, instead of listing them all separately, I will put them into categories. Hence the parts’ names are now in italics. Also, if a part has a Design ID listed with it, you can find in the Brickset.com database by searching the ID. So, let’s get to it! :)

#31030 LEGO Technic

:arrow: LEGO Technic Parts: There are six more new LEGO Technic pieces, in addition to the two we discussed in Part 1. The first of these new parts is Cross Axle 2M W. Snap W. Fric (Design ID 18651), which comes in black and is basically the opposite of this year’s Con. Bush 2M Fr. + Cross Axle. It appears in the #31030 LEGO Creator Red Go-kart, #42031 LEGO Technic Cherry Picker, and #42038 LEGO Technic Arctic Truck. The next three are Gear Wheel Z16, Double-sided (in red); Driving Ring 3M (in dark-stone-grey); and Cross Axle, Extension, 3M, 3 Ribs (in white). All three of these pieces appear together in the #42038 LEGO Technic Arctic Truck and the #42039 LEGO Technic 24 Hours Race Car. The #42039 LEGO Technic 24 Hours Race Car also sports new Curved Panel 3X13 W. Holes in bright-green. The below video shows most of these parts, and also the Peg Bush we talked about in the previous article.

:arrow: LEGO Assorted Elements: These parts don’t really have a collective category, so I’ll list them together. First off, the most useful piece in this category, Plate 1X2 W. 2 Shafts Ø 3.2 (Design ID 18649). This is an official part, and comes in black in three sets: #31028 LEGO Creator Sea Plane, #41531 LEGO Mixels Flamzer, and #41534 LEGO Mixels Vampos. Next is Bearing Element 2X4 Mini Snap (Design ID 18892), another official part, which appears in black in the #60075 LEGO City Excavator and Truck and #60082 LEGO City Dune Buggy Trailer.

#31028 LEGO Creator

Another official part is End Piece for Truck Body (Design ID 30022), which comes in orange and bright-yellow in the #60083 LEGO City Snowplow Truck and #60075LEGO City Excavator and Truck, respectively. This part happens to be the second part that I have found on LEGO Digital Designer before the piece has been released (the first was the Techno-blade piece).

#60075 LEGO City

The last three of the assorted LEGO elements I will discuss here are all from the new LEGO Elves line, to be released in March 2015. The first is Stalk with 6 Stems. It is similar to the regular flower stalk with 3 stems, but this time it comes with 6 stems, and in dark-green. I’ve found it in #41075 LEGO Elves Treetop Hideaway and #41076 LEGO Elves Fairan and the Crystal Hollow. The second part is (or what I call it) Fancy Handle, which looks like a shovel handle and appears to be special in the LEGO Elves story. It comes in aqua (for water), orange (for fire?), and bright-yellowish-green (for leaves); one color to each of these sets: #41073 LEGO Elves Naida’s Epic Adventure Ship, #41074 LEGO Elves Azari and the Magical Bakery, and #41076 LEGO Elves Fairan and the Crystal Hollow. Finally, there are some new leafy fence pieces that appear in #41074 LEGO Elves Azari and the Magical Bakery in gold, and #41075 LEGO Elves Treetop Hideaway in sand-green.

#41075 LEGO Elves

:arrow: LEGO Animal Parts: Excluding LEGO Friends, Disney Princess, and Elves mini-animals, there is really only one new animal this year, but it is a good one. It’s a new alligator design found in the new LEGO City subtheme Swamp Police. It is made up of three parts: a body, an upper jaw, and a tail; all of them are in earth-green. These alligators appear in #60066 LEGO City Starter Set, #60067 LEGO City Helicopter Pursuit, #60068 LEGO City Robber Swamp Hideout, and #60069 LEGO City Swamp Police Station.

#60067 LEGO City

So these are 12 more of the new parts for 2015 sets. It looks like there will be plenty of new elements to get next year, and plenty of sets to get them from. As we have discussed earlier, some of the 2015 LEGO sets are already available, and you can check them out at the Online LEGO Shop.

Just a quick note that many of the 2015 LEGO sets scheduled for release on January 1st are now available for pre-order on Amazon. If you have ever pre-ordered LEGO from Amazon before the release date, you know that they usually send out the sets earlier then expected – so you might even get them before Christmas, or shortly after. :)

LEGO 2015 Sets Coming

:arrow: 2015 LEGO STAR WARS SETS: Many of the 2015 LEGO Star Wars sets are already listed, including the #75081 LEGO Star Wars T-16 Skyhopper, the #75084 LEGO Star Wars Wookie Gunship, and the #75090 LEGO Star Wars Ezra’s Speeder Bike. In addition, all of the new LEGO Star Wars Microfighters sets and many other small to mid-size 2015 LEGO Star Wars sets are also listed. You can find them all under the NEWLY LISTED LEGO SETS ON AMAZON.

#75084 LEGO Star Wars

:arrow: 2015 LEGO DC SUPER HEROES SETS: The highly anticipated #76028 LEGO Super Heroes Darkseid Invasion is now available for pre-order! The other 2015 LEGO DC Super Heroes sets should follow soon. You can find them all under the NEWLY LISTED LEGO SETS ON AMAZON.

#76028 LEGO DC Super Heroes

:arrow: 2015 LEGO BIONICLE SETS: A good number of the LEGO BIONICLE re-launch sets are now available for pre-order. This includes #70784 LEGO BIONICLE Lewa – Master of Jungle, #70785 LEGO BIONICLE Pohatu – Master of Stone, #70786 LEGO BIONICLE Gali – Master of Water, #70787 LEGO BIONICLE Tahu – Master of Fire, #70788 LEGO BIONICLE Kopaka, Master of Ice, #70789 LEGO BIONICLE Onua – Master of Earth, and #70790 LEGO BIONICLE Lord of the Skull Spiders. BIONICLE fans can hardly wait to get these! You can find them all under the NEWLY LISTED LEGO SETS ON AMAZON.

#70790 LEGO BIONICLE

:arrow: 2015 THE LEGO MOVIE SETS: There are three small and very affordable sets coming out in January. Two of them, the #70817 The LEGO Movie Batman & Super Angry Kitty Attack, and the #70818 The LEGO Movie Double-Decker Couch are likely going to be flying off the shelves as both are real winners. The third set, the #70819 The LEGO Movie Bad Cop Car Chase should be popular with those who like Bad Cop and the police faction of The LEGO Movie. You can find them all under the NEWLY LISTED LEGO SETS ON AMAZON.

#79818 The LEGO Movie Details

:arrow: 2015 LEGO TECHNIC SETS: Many of the 2015 LEGO Technic sets are also listed, including the #42033 LEGO Technic Record Breaker and the #42034 LEGO Technic Quad Bike – both with Pull-Back Action. You can find them all under the NEWLY LISTED LEGO SETS ON AMAZON.

#42034 LEGO Technic

:arrow: 2015 LEGO CITY SETS: There is a particularly sweet Police sub-theme of LEGO City coming next year with all the action happening in the swamp. A couple of the sets are already available: the #60067 LEGO City Helicopter Pursuit and the #60069 LEGO City Swamp Police Station. May of the other 2015 LEGO City sets are also available. You can find them all under the NEWLY LISTED LEGO SETS ON AMAZON.

#60069 LEGO City Swamp Police

:arrow: 2015 LEGO CREATOR SETS: Most of the 2015 LEGO Creator sets are also available, including the awesome #31031 LEGO Creator Rainforest Animals we recently talked about, and the #31032 LEGO Creator Red Creatures. You can find them all under the NEWLY LISTED LEGO SETS ON AMAZON.

#31031 LEGO Rainforest Animals

:arrow: 2015 LEGO DISNEY PRINCESS SETS: LEGO Disney Princess is coming out with a particularly strong wave in January. The #41060 LEGO Disney Princess Sleeping Beauty’s Royal Bedroom, the #41061 LEGO Disney Princess Jasmine’s Exotic Palace, the #41062 LEGO Disney Princess Elsa’s Sparkling Ice Castle, and the #41063 LEGO Disney Princess Ariel’s Undersea Palace are all going to be very popular sets. You can find them all under the NEWLY LISTED LEGO SETS ON AMAZON.

#41062 LEGO Disney Princess Elsa's Castle

Again, please note that these sets are all for pre-order. You will likely receive them before January 1st, but can’t depend on it. However you will avoid having to hunt them down after the official release. We already know that some of them are going to be very popular: The LEGO Movie, the LEGO Disney Princess, and the LEGO Star Wars sets will likely sell out fast. By pre-ordering you avoid all the driving around looking for them and fighting the crowds. Through Amazon you will also get free shipping over $35 and no sales-tax in most states. You can find all the 2015 sets under the NEWLY LISTED LEGO SETS ON AMAZON.

So what do you think? Are you looking forward to the 2015 LEGO sets? Which one(s) are you planning to get? Will you pre-order any of them to make sure you get them as soon as they are available? Feel free to share in the comment section below! ;)

We normally don’t talk about the basic LEGO Creator sets in detail, well, because they are basic. Make no mistake; LEGO Creator is a wonderful theme, and it is the closest to LEGO sets of the past, with mostly standard elements and instructions for multiple models. So yes, they are great, and I highly recommend […]
