All right, it is time for the Toy Fairs! As you probably know already, January/February of every year is when the various large international Toy Fairs happen; first in London (January 20-22), then in Germany (January 28-February 2), then in New York (February 14-17). Why is this important for LEGO fans? Well, because this is the time when LEGO themes and sets for the new year get revealed! 🙂
The London Toy Fair is the first one on the list. LEGO doesn’t allow any pictures/videos to be taken at this event as many of the new sets and minifigures are still in prototype stage. However this is still an important event as participants can get a good idea of all the news sets and themes. A couple of weeks later at the German Toy Fair, and even later at the New York Toy Fair, pictures and videos are allowed on some of the new products, and usually by this time most of the sets and minifigures are finalized for the year.
So although we don’t have any pictures yet, let’s talk about what has been revealed at the recent London Toy Fair. Thanks to Huw and CapnRex101 from Brickset, and Barry from BrickFanatics, who have attended the event, we can at least get a description of what they have seen (again; no pictures/videos were allowed). So let’s begin!
➡ 2015 LEGO STAR WARS SETS: As we have discussed previously, 2015 is going to be big Star Wars year. This is of course because Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens film, but LEGO will be bridging the gap with plenty of other LEGO Star Wars sets even in the meantime. Please note that no Episode VII sets were revealed at the toy fair. Those are still under wraps and are scheduled for the fall/winter. The 2015 #75097 LEGO Star Wars Advent Calendar will have C-3PO as Santa, and R2-D2 as a reindeer.

➡ 2015 LEGO NINJAGO SETS: At least to me, this line sounds really interesting. The main badguys in this wave are ghosts, and a largest set is an updated version of the Destiny’s Bounty. The special ninja power will be Airjitsu with spinners that are operated by a rip-cord and can fly!

➡ 2015 LEGO JURASSIC WORLD SETS: By all reports although the sets look nice, they are very expensive compared to what you get. This is most likely due to the new moulds for the dinos, but it is still disappointing. The sets are similar to the previously released LEGO Dino sets, but the color scheme is dark-gray and blue. The main character played by Chris Pratt (Owen) only appears in one set. They will be released in May.

According to those who have seen them already, the sets look excellent with a classic ’70s vibe. The characters themselves will be actual minifigures and not mini-dolls. The monsters chasing the gang include Dracula, Black Knight, Headless Horseman, Lighthouse Keeper, glow-in-the-dark ghosts, zombies, and mummies.

➡ 2015 LEGO CITY SETS: LEGO City is getting two sub-themes later this year, one is space related, and the other is about deep sea exploration. From all accounts I have read the space sets are geared towards younger builders and are somewhat juniorized. The deep sea explorers are excellent with a nice yellow color-scheme and some very well designed sets. There is also another very interesting set, the #60097 LEGO City Square, which includes 14 minifigures, a coffee kiosk, a LEGO store with a Pick-A-Brick Wall and delivery van, garage with a truck, and an orange/black trolley with a stop. This set is reportedly similar to the #60026 LEGO City Town Square released in 2013 but even larger.
