Well, here is what we have been waiting for; most of the first wave of the 2014 LEGO sets are now available! I will show you some of the highlights, then we can talk about which ones are our favorites. So let’s dive right in! 🙂
➡ 2014 LEGO CITY SETS: All of the first wave of the 2014 LEGO City sets are now available, and there is a very nice variety and selection. Of course there are new LEGO City Police and LEGO City Fire sets, but also new LEGO City vehicles and trucks, and even a new LEGO City Camper Van (the previous one was very popular – this one should be as well, as it’s a nice design). I also like the little six-stud-wide #60053 LEGO City Race Car. I already got three of them and plan to make different color combinations.
➡ 2014 LEGO CREATOR SETS: In the LEGO Creator line there is a lot to look at! First of all the #10241 LEGO Maersk Line Triple-E is now available, as well as the lovely #10243 LEGO Parisian Restaurant. The 3-in-1 sets are also particularly sweet this time; especially the two animals sets. A great way to learn how to build animals and birds from LEGO – not an easy feat!
➡ 2014 LEGO CUUSOO SETS: The #21104 LEGO NASA Mars Science Laboratory Curiosity Rover is now available. This is a particularly interesting, LEGO-fan and NASA-engineer designed set we talked about before (see link at the end of this post). If you are interested, I would suggest you pick this up right away. I expect that it will sell out quickly. Here is the direct link: Buy LEGO Curiosity Rover
➡ 2014 LEGO FRIENDS SETS: All of the new sets are now released. Don’t miss out on that cute little scooter in the #41027 LEGO Friends Mia’s Lemonade Stand! It is such a nice color, and the only other set it appears in is the #10243 LEGO Parisian Restaurant (in red).
➡ 2014 LEGO NINJAGO SETS: These have been released last month, but I thought to mention them anyway as they are very popular. They have been available at most LEGO retailers (although some are just starting to stock the shelves with 2014 sets), and you can also get them at the Online LEGO Shop.
➡ 2014 LEGO THE HOBBIT SETS: These were also released last month, but might as well add them here due to their popularity. I don’t want to offend any Tolkien fans by excluding them. 🙄
➡ 2014 THE LEGO MOVIE SETS: The awesomest and wackiest things of the year! I really enjoy these sets and I would recommend you check them out. The 2-in-1 sets are particularly interesting.
➡ 2014 LEGO DISNEY PRINCESS SETS: These charming sets are finally available! Please note that on the USA site they don’t have their own category as of this writing, but you can go to the What’s New section at the Online LEGO Shop and you can find them there.
The 2014 LEGO Star Wars sets, the 2014 LEGO Super Heroes Batman sets, the 2014 LEGO Legends of Chima sets, and the 2014 LEGO Technic sets are currently available worldwide except in the USA and in Canada (no fair!), but hopefully they will show up shortly at this side of the planet too. 😕
So what do you think? Are you excited? Which one of the sets are on your “must have” list? Personally I feel that the #10243 LEGO Parisian Restaurant is one of the nicest sets LEGO ever produced (make sure you read the review linked at the end of this post). There are also many great sets at smaller price-points in the LEGO Ninjago, LEGO Friends, LEGO Hobbit and The LEGO Movie line, so there is something for everyone. So what’s on your shopping-list? What did you get already? Feel free to share and discuss in the comment section below! 😉
