2013 LEGO polybag sets for your collection!

by admin on January 7, 2013

in LEGO Exclusives

(Written by HP)

We have talked about many of the regular 2013 LEGO sets, and today I would like to show you all the small 2013 LEGO polybag sets, thanks to Flickr member motayan, who posted the pictures. Some of these are released already, and some will be available a bit later in the year. :P

:arrow: 2013 LEGO Seasonal Polybags:  There are a couple of polybags for this spring. The #4002 LEGO Springtime Scene contains a tree, fountain, a boy and girl (if we would have a cheesy smiley it would go here), some fences and foliage. Overall a cute little set, especially if you would give it to a special someone. The #40053 LEGO Easter Bunny with Basket is going to be available for Easter – obviously.  The Easter Bunny is not the cutest LEGO ever made, but it is a nice little set for some fun building.

:arrow: 2013 LEGO Lone Ranger Polybags: You already heard about the LEGO Lone Ranger sets coming, right? (You can read about them here: 2013 LEGO Lone Ranger Sets Pictures!) Besides the sets there are also going to be a couple of polybags. The #30260 LEGO Lone Ranger’s Pump Car is going to be very useful for LEGO Western building, and it also includes the Lone Ranger himself with his awesome new gun. The #30261 LEGO Lone Ranger Tonto’s Campfire includes Tonto! Have you seen his hairpiece?! EPIC! Also comes with a campfire and a chicken-leg.

:arrow: 2013 LEGO Super Heroes Polybag: Only one polybag for Super Heroes, the #30167 LEGO Super Heroes Iron Man vs. Fighting Drone. This would be the cheapest way to get Iron Man, and if you love flick-fire missiles and tiny drones, this is the polybag to get!

:arrow: 2013 LEGO Legends of Chima Polybags: As you probably already know from the previous posts here, LEGO is pulling out all stops as far as advertising the new LEGO Legends of Chima theme. Besides the regular sets and Speedorz game-sets there are also 6 polybags, each of them including the new CHI piece. The #30250 LEGO Legends of Chima Ewar’s Acro-Fighter set is a cute little build – get this polybag if you want Ewar. The #30251 LEGO Legends of Chima Winzar’s Pack-Patrol includes Winzar the Wolf and a little sled for him to ride. The #30252 LEGO Legends of Chima Crug’s Swamp-Jet includes the only brown Crocodile and a small boat. The #30253 LEGO Legends of Chima Leonidas’ Jungle-Dragster includes one of the main Lion characters and also some nice light-orange parts. The #30254 LEGO Legends of Chima Razcal’s Double-Crosser – I love how awesome the Ravens are, but I don’t quite get why Razcal has to drive a vehicle when he has wing. But I guess that’s why it’s called the Double-Crosser. The #30255 LEGO Legends of Chima Crawley set is the smallest of the Chima polybags and includes Crawley, a CHI piece, and his cool brick-built gun.

:arrow: 2013 LEGO Creator Polybags: The #30183 LEGO Creator Little Car comes with a cute little car for racing down the hallway. The #30184 LEGO Creator Little Helicopter is great for swooshing around. The #30185 LEGO Creator Little Eagle is my favorite LEGO Creator polybag. It looks exactly like his bigger brother in the #31004 LEGO Creator Fierce Flyer set.

:arrow: 2013 LEGO Friends Polybags: The #30106 LEGO Friends Ice Cream Stand comes with Emma, a new ice-cream cone piece and a sweet little ice-cream stand. The #30107 LEGO Friends Birthday Party – I can’t believe this is a birthday party; there is only Andrea all by herself and one gift!  How can this be a party without at least one another person?! The balloons are nice though. The #30108 LEGO Friends Summer Picnic comes with Mia chilling out on her blanket with a bunch of food. :roll:

2013 LEGO Friends Polybags

:arrow: 2013 LEGO Star Wars Polybags: The #30240 LEGO Star Wars Z-95 Headhunter looks just like the bigger #75004 LEGO Star Wars Z-95 with a nice assortment of pieces. The #30241 LEGO Star Wars Gauntlet is a mini version of the #9525 LEGO Star Wars Pre Vizsla’s Mandalorian Starfighter. This set was originally named incorrectly, so it was later renamed the Gauntlet. Comes with a good assortment of dark-blue LEGO pieces. The #30242 LEGO Star Wars Republic Frigate is a mini version of the #7964 LEGO Star Wars Republic Frigate - not the best mini-set in my opinion, but it has some useful pieces. The #30243 LEGO Star Wars Umbaran MHC (Mobile Heavy Cannon) is a cute little version of the #75013 LEGO Star Wars Umbaran MHC set, with positionable legs.

2013 LEGO Star Wars Polybags

These are 2013 polybags we know about at this point. I’m sure more polybags will be coming out this year, but since we don’t have pictures yet we just have to stay tuned for more info. A lot of LEGO fans collect polybags as they are fun little sets and they don’t take up a lot of space. They are also a cheap way to get minifigures and nice pieces. It sometimes takes a bit of hunting to find them all, but they are usually available at LEGO Stores, the Online LEGO Shop, and some retailers. They are even given out as freebies at times. Currently the #30250 LEGO Legends of Chima Ewar’s Acro-Fighter is available with your order at the Online LEGO Shop.

Free LEGO® Ewar's Acro-Fighter with a $75 purchase. Offer valid January 1-31 2013 or while supplies last.

LEGO polybags can also be found on eBay, and often in bundles. This is a great way to pick up a whole set of polybags to start your collection. See below some of the current eBay listings.

I hope you enjoyed this article. My name is HP and I’m a KFOL (Kid-Fan-of-LEGO). I will be a TFOL (Teen-Fan-of-LEGO) in June. This is my second post here at theBrickblogger. You can read my first post LEGO Building Technique: Forced-Perspective. Let me know what you think of the LEGO polybags and if you collect them. Would love to hear your thoughts, so please share them below! ;)

I thought it was a good post, I might get the Chima polybag with Crug. I wish they had one with Erin because she only comes in one set that I don’t really like.

Not to change the subject . but is there any more news on the lord of the rings/ hobbit sets.

Yes, there is some news on the summer sets but at this point it is so convoluted with rumors and speculations that I just don’t feel it’s right to post them here. When the dust settles a bit and we can see some larger official images I will update you guys. ;)

Are there any Ninjago polybags?

Any why is Lego working so hard on Chima publicity?

Brickipedia has some pictures of Galaxy Squad polybags that I am keeping my eyes open for.

I like the lone ranger handcar and the chima ones with crawley and the one with crug! and the frigate is cute though i am disapointed that there is no ninjago polybags

Polybags are used to create extra publicity for LEGO’s themes….the reason why there isn’t any Ninjago polybags listed is because LEGO is trying to focus on getting publicity for the new Legends of Chima theme (that’s why it has 6 polybags -Chima will eventually replace Ninjago). Hope this helped. ;)

Hey admin! How did you add in that eBay listings thing? It looks really cool and I think that I might be able to use it on BE. Thanks. ;)

Do you have an eBay affiliate account? You need to be an affiliate to use them. If you have an account I can tell you how to set them up. ;)

I tried to become an eBay affiliate a few months ago but they declined….I’ll try again soon…. :)

admin, do you know if the friends hair is able to be used on minifigs? if so i might get a few of the friends polybags.

Reply

admin January 7, 2013 at 5:36 PM

Ninjoey, the Friends hair pieces fit the exact same way as regular LEGO hair pieces. They are made of the more rubbery plastic, like the Exo-Force hair pieces, and they look really cute on regular minifigs. I also bought a bunch of extra just for that purpose. All three of of those Friends polybag hair-pieces are super nice on minifigs, and you can also put regular minifig headgear on Friends. You will love them. ;)

thanks admin! i’ll be sure to put aside a bit of mony for polybags.

Um… Admin this is toatally off topic and i have no idea where it would go, but how did you make this blog? And did it cost you any money? if so how much? THX

admin January 8, 2013 at 2:12 PM

TBB is based of Wordpress. Wordpress is free, however the theme and hosting is not. If I remember correctly the theme was around $100. That was a one-time fee. Hosting and other fees per month are $150 right now. It will likely go up again as traffic grows. However our readers are kind enough to use our LEGO and Amazon links when they shop for LEGO, which helps with covering the fees every month, and I very much appreciate :)

Are there images with higher resolution somewhere? These seem a bit too small to me…

I tried to find some Hi-res images of these polybags too…..but I didn’t really find any….it seems as though motayan is the only person with images…. :S

Arrrrrrrg!!!!!!!!!!!! I dislike CHIMA :( Their game they include (the motorbikes) are not nearly as cool as the spinners, and I wasn’t even a fan of ninjago really in the first place :(

Apart from that I really cannot wait to get my hands on those lone ranger polybag :D

as far as i know, most of the starwars polybags ever made were micro-scale (exept for darth mul and white boba fett)

gid617 January 8, 2013 at 5:35 PM

Thought this was so funny I just have to mention it; not sure if it’s a mistake on LEGO’s part or not, but opening the LEGO Home page…
The four slides are all chima; all three “popular products” are Chima, all three side bar references are Chima; all four “what’s new” – Chima as well, and all three shop references – you guessed it – Chima! :P :P
I though it was really funny! Sure, Chima might be popular…
but every single thing?!?!. (If you miss it, here’s a screenshot…)

Ninjoey (the lego block head) January 8, 2013 at 10:25 PM

i just went on there as well!!! i agree! very funny

Reply

admin January 9, 2013 at 9:49 AM

Yeah, they are definitely pushing Chima! Buy them, or else! :twisted:

Reply

Strider January 9, 2013 at 10:00 AM

I like Chima. The minifigures look really detailed.

Reply

lego chronicler January 14, 2013 at 6:03 PM

I like the minfigures themselves, but the sets are absolutely abysmal, I mean why do are the sets “large monster truck in the shape of a snake” It is completely unrealistic, and a large part of the problem I have with ninjago, the sets seem to be created for 6 year olds! At least put in a building or two that has oriental architecture in it, thats why the older sets were better! More realism, cooler sets, and less crappy vehicles, etc. (many of the good lines that LEGO made were going easy on the vehicles!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!)

admin January 14, 2013 at 7:36 PM

Ninjago is actually made for 6-year-olds. ;)

2x4 Brick January 14, 2013 at 8:38 PM

hey i noticed two completely different wolves in the catalog with the same name! dont know if anybody else noticed it but i thought it was funny that lego actually made a mistake

Reply

admin January 15, 2013 at 8:39 AM

Was that in the LEGO Club Magazine or the Retail Catalog?

Crystal February 5, 2013 at 11:15 AM

I found the lego friends ice cream one at Target and the balloon one at toysrus. Any idea where the picnic one might be?

admin February 5, 2013 at 1:58 PM

Crystal, polybags are often hard to hunt down as retailers vary greatly on availability. If you can’t find it locally you can always check eBay or BrickLink. ;)

Anna February 12, 2013 at 5:46 AM

When are the friends sets out in the uk ? Where do you buy them from.

Reply

admin February 12, 2013 at 9:14 PM

Anna, so sorry, but I’m in the USA and not familiar with the UK market. Maybe some of our UK readers can give you some suggestions, but I would assume your best bet would be calling your local LEGO store. :)

Hey guys, you can get most of these at Target.
