I know we have talked about many of the exciting new LEGO sets released recently, but I thought it would be helpful to have a comprehensive overview on what is new. This way you can see them all in one place, and we can also discuss them easier. Most of these new sets should be now available at the largest LEGO retailers, at official LEGO stores, and at the Online LEGO Shop. So let’s take a look! 🙂
➡ 2014 LEGO NINJAGO SETS: Two new LEGO Ninjago sets have been released this summer; the #70727 LEGO Ninjago Kai’s Ninja Charger and the #70728 LEGO Ninjago Battle for Ninjago City. Kai’s 2-in-1 vehicle looks excellent, and the temple is a gorgeous set. You can see more here: 2014 LEGO Ninjago Summer Sets Coming! and LEGO Ninjago Temple Video-Review, and if you are interested to see more pictures or to buy, visit the Ninjago section of the Online LEGO Shop.
➡ 2014 LEGO SUPER HEROES SUMMER SETS: Several new Super Heroes sets are out in the Guardians of the Galaxy collection, with some very unique minifigures including Storm, Cyclobs, Star-Lord, Drax, Gamora Sakaaran, Ronan, Rocket Raccoon, and more. If you are interested to see details or to buy, visit the Super Heroes section of the Online LEGO Shop.
➡ 2014 THE LEGO MOVIE SUMMER SETS: These sets have been on pretty much everyone’s wanted list. Especially Benny’s Spaceship. Get any of them, you will not be disappointed! You can see video-reviews of all three sets here: The LEGO Movie Summer Sets Video-Reviews, and if you are interested to see more pictures or to buy, visit The LEGO Movie section of the Online LEGO Shop.
➡ 2014 LEGO ULTRA AGENTS SETS: We have discussed this brand new theme before, but yeah, LEGO Ultra Agents are out! These are fantastic sets with very unique minifigures and a lot of play-value. You can read more about them here: LEGO Ultra Agents Available Now!, and if you are interested to see more pictures or to buy, visit the Ultra Agents section of the Online LEGO Shop.
➡ 2014 LEGO CITY ARCTIC SETS: This is another brand new theme. I haven’t mentioned it much before because I just felt weird talking about Arctic sets in the middle of the summer, but this is actually a very solid theme that I know a lot of LEGO fans appreciate. Also, the new huskies are very sweet. If you would like to see pictures or to buy, visit the City section of the Online LEGO Shop.
➡ 2014 LEGO TMNT SETS: These sets are not exactly new, but they have been released fairly recently, so I thought to add them here for LEGO Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles fans as some people may not be aware that they are out. If you are interested to see pictures or to buy, visit the TMNT section of the Online LEGO Shop.
➡ 2014 LEGO MIXELS SETS: Three new Mixels tribes have been released today; the blue Frosticons, the brown Fang Gang, and the orange Flexers. I know a lot of people collect these cute little buggers (including myself), so it is great to have them finally available. If you would like to learn more about the news tribes go here: LEGO Mixels Series 2 Characters Coming!, and if you are interested to see more pictures or to buy, visit the Mixels section of the Online LEGO Shop.
➡ 2014 LEGO CREATOR SETS: The two most interesting sets in this wave are the #31026 LEGO Creator Bike Shop & Cafe, and the #10244 LEGO Creator Fairground Mixer. We have discussed both sets at length here: LEGO Creator Bike Shop & Cafe and Unveiling of the LEGO Fairground Mixer, and if you are interested to see more pictures or to buy, visit the Creator section of the Online LEGO Shop.
➡ 2014 LEGO TECHNIC SETS: In this wave we get smaller, cheaper Technic sets, and they are a great way to get introduced to building with Technic. Also, several of the vehicles come with pull-back motors, so there is also a potential for action and play! If you are interested to see pictures or to buy, visit the Technic section of the Online LEGO Shop.
➡ 2014 LEGO IDEAS SET: The highly anticipated #21108 LEGO Ghostbusters Echo-1 set is now available. I have already gotten and built this set (review will come soon) and I can tell you it is worth every penny. LEGO Ideas sets are also reat investments as they are highly desirable and sell out quickly. If you have never bought a LEGO Ideas (formerly LEGO CUUSOO) set before, get this one. You can see full description and pictures at the Ideas section of the Online LEGO Shop.
➡ 2014 LEGO JUNIORS SETS: This is a theme we haven’t really talked about as of yet, but they are definitely worth mentioning. They are designed for younger builders (both boys and girls) who are just transitioning from DUPLO over to regular size LEGO. The sets are easy to put together and provide a lot of play-value. There is one thing about these sets that may be interesting to older builders too; there are many really nice prints in these sets, but they are not stickers! They are printed right on the elements! If you dislike stickers (like I do), this is a major plus! If you are interested to check out the whole collection visit the Juniors section of the Online LEGO Shop.
➡ 2014 LEGO DUPLO SETS: This is another theme we haven’t touched on for a while, but it deserves to be discussed because DUPLO knights are back! Well, at least a few of them. I will write a separate article about this as it’s an interesting topic, but there are definitely some nice new sets here for younger builders. You can see all the new offerings in the DUPLO section of the Online LEGO Shop.
So as you can see there are quite a few new sets to choose from, along with several brand new lines of products. What do you think? What’s on your summer LEGO shopping list? And what did you get already? Feel free to share and discuss in the comment section below! 😉
