Within the past few days, a great number of LEGO sets scheduled for this summer were revealed and have been added to the Brickset database. Below, I have included a summary of all the new sets that we know about so far, along with links to Brickset to see additional pictures we don’t have room to include here. Looks like LEGO fans have a great (and expensive) summer to look forward to! 🙂
➡ LEGO ARCHITECTURE 2018 SUMMER SETS: Two new LEGO Architecture sets coming this summer; the #21041 LEGO Architecture Great Wall of China and the #21042 LEGO Architecture Statue of Liberty. The #21041 LEGO Architecture Great Wall of China is particularly interesting as multiple sets can be locked together for a longer wall. It appears that the #21038 LEGO Architecture Las Vegas set is still delayed. Also, don’t forget about the recently released #21039 LEGO Architecture Shanghai set, at the LEGO Architecture section of the Online LEGO Shop.
➡ LEGO CITY 2018 SUMMER SETS: The LEGO City Arctic sub-theme is coming back this summer, with a fantastic selection of new sets, including new prehistoric animals! It’s also nice to see that the sets have the same color scheme as the previous LEGO City Arctic releases, so you can combine them for a larger layout. Check out those cute floppy eared hats, awesome animals, and massive arctic work vehicles! Pictures are available of all seven sets in the Brickset database, and they will be available this summer at the LEGO City section of the Online LEGO Shop.
➡ LEGO CREATOR 2018 SUMMER SETS: Three new LEGO Creator 3-in-1 sets have been revealed, including the #31083 LEGO Creator Cruising Adventures, the #31084 LEGO Creator Pirate Roller Coaster, and the #31085 LEGO Creator Mobile Stunt Show. From the three, the #31084 LEGO Creator Pirate Roller Coaster looks the most interesting, with a good selection of the new rollercoaster track pieces and a customizable layout. I also heard that there is going to be a separate track pack to allow expanding the roller coaster layout (much like the trains track packs). The new sets will be available at the LEGO Creator section of the Online LEGO Shop.
➡ LEGO DC COMICS 2018 SUMMER SETS: There are a couple of new LEGO DC Super Heroes Batman sets we can look forward to; the #76110 LEGO Batman: The Attack of the Talons and the #76111 LEGO Batman: Brother Eye Takedown with a new Batwoman minifig! The #76112 LEGO App-Controlled Batmobile is also coming, but no pictures are available yet. The new sets will be available this summer at the LEGO DC Comics section of the Online LEGO Shop.
➡ LEGO DISNEY 2018 SUMMER SETS: Two new Disney sets are also coming, including the #41156 LEGO Disney Rapunzel’s Castle Bedroom, and the #41157 LEGO Disney Rapunzel’s Traveling Caravan. I really like the caravan, and the included minifigs! Both sets will be available this summer at the LEGO Disney section of the Online LEGO Shop.
➡ LEGO ELVES 2018 SUMMER SETS: LEGO Elves also gets two new sets; the #41195 LEGO Elves Emily & Noctura’s Showdown, and the #41196 LEGO Elves The Elvenstar Tree Bat Attack. Both sets are additions to the currently available selection with more brick-built magical creatures at the LEGO Elves section of the Online LEGO Shop.
➡ LEGO FRIENDS 2018 SUMMER SETS: The summer sub-theme for LEGO Friends is all about go-karts racing. The section includes the #41348 LEGO Friends Service & Care Truck, the #41349 LEGO Friends Drifting Diner, the #41351 LEGO Friends Creative Tuning Shop, and the #41352 LEGO Friends The Big Race Day. See pictures in the Brickset database, and keep an eye on the LEGO Friends section of the Online LEGO Shop.
➡ LEGO JUNIORS 2018 SUMMER SETS: LEGO Juniors for younger kids is getting a good variety of new sets with the #10762 LEGO Juniors Belle’s Story Time (LEGO Disney), #10763 LEGO Juniors Stephanie’s Lakeside House (LEGO Friends), and #19764 LEGO Juniors City Central Airport. All of them will be available this summer at the LEGO Juniors section of the Online LEGO Shop.
➡ LEGO NINJAGO 2018 SUMMER SETS: Ninjago will have a large selection this summer, including new type of spinners with wings, new dragons, and two large sets; the #70654 LEGO Ninjago Dieselnaut, and the #70655 LEGO Ninjago Dragon Pit. I only included a couple of set pictures here for reference, and you can check out the rest at the Brickset database. They will be available this summer at the LEGO Ninjago section of the Online LEGO Shop.
➡ LEGO NINJAGO MOVIE SUMMER SETS: The #70657 LEGO Ninjago Movie Ninjago City Docks is meant to further extend the already massive #70620 LEGO Ninjago Movie Ninjago City set for an even larger display. Add the beautiful #70618 LEGO Ninjago Movie Destiny’s Bounty, and you have the ultimate Asian-style city display! Currently, we only have one box image for Ninjago City Docks, but details should be coming soon. Keep an eye on The LEGO Ninjago Movie section of the Online LEGO Shop.
➡ LEGO UNIKITTY! SETS: Unikitty from The LEGO Movie became so popular that since the release of the film she got her own TV show, and this summer we are also getting five Unikitty sets related to the show, along with a series of Unikitty collectible characters in blind bags.
Awesome selection, isn’t it? Please note that these are not the only new sets we are getting this summer, just the ones we currently have pictures for. We can also look forward to other sets within the themes mentioned here, as well as new themes like the upcoming LEGO Harry Potter collection, and the soon-to-be-announced #10261 LEGO Creator Expert Builder Roller Coaster with over 4,000 pieces. As we get closer to the summer months, more information and images should be trickling in. Having some preliminary information is helpful to see what to look forward to and what to budget for throughout the year. And of course, there are also plenty of amazing sets released already this year, which you can find under the what’s new section of the Online LEGO Shop.
