Although we are still at the very beginning of the new year, details about LEGO set scheduled for release later in 2016 are already circulating. Keep in mind that until these sets are confirmed by LEGO, their release is not completely certain, however the information we have so far is pretty solid. The set names and details provided here come from just2good‘s YouTube channel – he has been a very reliable source of future LEGO sets, and they have also been added to the Brickset database. So let’s take a look. 🙂
➡ 2016 LEGO CITY SUMMER SETS: The LEGO City summer sets are around the topic of volcano exploration. Based on the set names, it seems the sets are quite similar to the LEGO City Arctic sets with a research base, research truck, supply helicopter, and a few other vehicles. I really like the LEGO City Arctic sets, so I’m looking forward to these as well. The color-scheme is probably going to be different though, and we will also likely get a bunch of rocky and fiery elements. Below is the list of the upcoming sets, and you might also want to check the January releases under the LEGO City section of the Online LEGO Shop.
