We have covered the London and German Toy Fairs (see links at the end of this post) and today we will talk about some of the sets that were revealed at the recent New York Toy Fair. As you probably know already, these are the events where we can get a first glimpse of the new LEGO sets and themes of the year. While many of the sets were showcased at the previous toy fairs, the New York Toy Fair had even more. Please note that we will only focus here on the LEGO sets we haven’t seen before, for the previously revealed sets you can check out the earlier toy fair reports. I also recommend watching the video coverage from the BrickShow as they filmed all of the new sets at the toy fair. Pictures have also been added to the Brickset database. So let’s take a look. 🙂
➡ 2015 LEGO JURASSIC WORLD SETS: As we have discussed previously (see: LEGO Jurassic World Sets Coming in 2015!), LEGO is releasing a series of six sets based on the new film. Five of the sets were showcased at the toy fair and you can see them below: #75915 LEGO Jurassic World Pteranodon Capture, #75916 LEGO Jurassic World Dilophosaurus Ambush, #75917 LEGO Jurassic World Raptor Rampage, #75918 LEGO Jurassic World T-Rex Tracker, #75919 LEGO Jurassic World Ultra Dino.
➡ 2015 LEGO SCOOBY-DOO SETS: This is another brand new theme for 2015 that we have discussed previously (see: LEGO Scooby-Doo Sets Press-Release & More!), but now we have more pictures that you can see below: #75901 LEGO Scooby Doo The Headless Horsemen, #75900 LEGO Scooby Doo Mummy Mystery Museum, #75904 LEGO Scooby Doo Mystery Mansion, #75903 LEGO Scooby Doo Haunted Lighthouse, #75902 LEGO Scooby Doo Mystery Machine Escape.
I think the LEGO Jurassic World sets look good. The blue and white color-scheme is a bit bland and too similar to LEGO City Police sets, but that’s just the result of this being a licensed theme. The dinos look great with the detailed printing. And I’m pretty sure the LEGO Scooby Doo sets are going to be a favorite for a lot of people. There are so many winning details, nicely designed minifigs, and great accessories!

➡ 2015 LEGO SUPER HEROES SETS: LEGO Marvel Super Heroes and LEGO DC Comics Super Heroes are also getting a lot of new sets this year. We have discussed some of them previously, but more have been revealed at the New York Toy Fair: #76034 LEGO DC Super Heroes Batboat Harbor Pursuit, #76035 LEGO DC Super Heroes Jokerland, #76036 LEGO Marvel Super Heroes Carnage’s Shield Sky Attack, #76037 LEGO Marvel Super Heroes Rhino and Sandman Supervillain Team Up, #76038 LEGO Marvel Super Heroes Attack on Avengers Tower, #76039 LEGO Marvel Super Heroes Marvel’s Ant-Man.
There are some really excellent sets in both the DC and Marvel line-up. I’m particularly impressed by the Ant-Man set; it includes some incredible minifigs and the addition of the large LEGO bricks is brilliant.

➡ 2015 LEGO STAR WARS SETS: Star Wars is a staple theme at LEGO, so it is no surprise that are getting a new wave. This is the first time we see pictures of most of these sets, so it’s quite exciting. Some of them look like real winners, while others are somewhat boring, and even controversial: #75091 LEGO Star Wars Flash Speeder, #75092 LEGO Star Wars Naboo Starfighter, #75093 LEGO Star Wars Death Star Final Duel, #75094 LEGO Star Wars Imperial Shuttle Tydirium, #75095 LEGO Star Wars TIE Fighter, #75097 LEGO Star Wars Advent Calendar, #75106 LEGO Star Wars Imperial Assault Carrier.
➡ 2015 LEGO MINECRAFT SETS: We have already talked about the upcoming LEGO Minecraft sets. This is the second wave of LEGO Minecraft sets that are minifigure scale, featuring more landscapes from the Minecraft terrain: #21119 LEGO Minecraft The Dungeon, #21120 LEGO Minecraft The Snow Hideout, #21121 LEGO Minecraft The Desert Outpost, #21122 LEGO Minecraft The Nether Fortress.
The LEGO Star Wars Ultimate Collector Series TIE Fighter is absolutely huge! We will talk about this set separately in more detail. The LEGO Star Wars large-scale buildable figures are an interesting idea. I think Darh Vader is fine, but Luke Skywalker looks kind of creepy. We will see how LEGO fans react to these. As far as the LEGO Minecraft sets, they look good. While I liked the micro-scale LEGO Minecraft sets, they were more a niche item for collectors. The minifigure scale sets appeal more to kids as they can build up large landscapes and have real minifig characters. Also, the color-schemes are really nice.
