➡ 2019 LEGO HIDDEN SIDE SETS: This is a brand new theme for the year we first heard about during the New York Toy Fair. LEGO Hidden Side is an augmented reality-enhanced LEGO play theme where kids must turn a haunted world back to normal, one ghost at a time. The sets include some really well designed new characters and locations, and they work with the LEGO Hidden Side app that can be downloaded at the Apple App store or the Google Play store. There is a haunted high school, a ghost train, a school bus decked out to intercept paranormal activity, a graveyard, a wrecked shrimp boat, a ghost lab, and more! I highly recommend checking out this theme, as they have so many interesting features. Visit the LEGO Hidden Side section of the Online LEGO Shop.

Find it at The LEGO Movie 2 section of the Online LEGO Shop.

The set can be rebuilt into a compact tower crane as an alternate model. The second set is the #42098 LEGO Technic Car Transporter. It may not be clear on the pictures, but this set is huge! It measures 8” (22cm) high, 33” (86cm) long and 5” (13cm) wide. That’s almost three feet long! The alternate model is a truck and show cars. It’s also worth noting that the blue car in the main model is the same scale as the orange #42093 LEGO Technic Chevrolet Corvette ZR1. If you get the car transporter, I would recommend getting this set as an add-on. You an find them at the LEGO Technic section of the Online LEGO Shop.

Rex Rampage set, the #75253 LEGO Star Wars Droid Commander set, the #80103 LEGO Chinese New Year Dragon Boat Race set, the #10265 LEGO Creator Ford Mustang, and the whole new LEGO City Space Exploration collection.

What happened to the Leibher excavator announced in London, January of this year?
Not sure. It supposed to be released today, so my guess is that it will be coming soon.
UPDATE: Release was pushed back to October due to some production issues. My guess the issues are with the new Control+ system, but that’s just my guess.
What about the olive green Land Rover? Isn’t that supposed to be released too?
I think that set is scheduled for September. It was leaked a while ago, but the pictures have been taken down.
If I recall correctly, the set was leaked even before the real car had been revealed, so it was doubly embarrassing…
Yes, that’s what I heard as well. I’m sure the Land Rover guys weren’t happy…
Yes, September is what I heard as well.
Oh, man, so many great sets. I’m very curious about Hidden Side, the Jurassic sets look great (especially the mech), creator sets, city, even friends. I should probably just send my paycheck to Lego directly at this point.
Me too 😫
Ha-ha! Me too! Is that a good thing or bad? It’s good, right? RIGHT?! 🙄
Oh, yes. My mom ordered a few hidden side sets and the donut Shop grand opening set( I think ) it’s for my birthday .( shhh) I’m not supposed to know. Lol! She did have trouble with getting my VIP points and to use them. My mom wasn’t happy about it and called customer service to complain. I’m getting a free hidden side set because of the glitch in the system. A Jedi mind trick works great on the weak-minded. Lol!
Ha-ha! Not a bad deal after all. The new VIP system is going to take a long time to get used to. I know their customer service is flowed with complaints. They are also getting a lot of flack on social media. Hopefully they will be able to iron out the kinks soon.
Actually I take that back. Lego did try and fix the problem the best they can. So, thank you lego. I guess they had a lot of unhappy customers on the lines today.
Just FYI. You didn’t mention the new Technic off-roader. I know it was released a little earlier, but it’s technically (see the pun?) a new set.
Yes, that’s correct. It’s another Technic set that was recently released. A good one too! 😀
OMG I love everything, pretty much! So I’m going to need over time & weekends to afford it all. 😫😫😫😫😫😫
Yes, please! Hidden Side! I’m so looking forward to these sets and very curious to see how the virtual reality aspect works. Previous lego virtual reality sets didn’t work very well. Dimensions was pretty good, but there was not much interaction.
Seems like the app was programmed to work with certain monochrome fields, so there were several monochrome tiles included in the sets to interact with the app.
Hidden side sets for us as well. The kids are fascinated by them. It’s not that the other sets are not good, but we have to stick to a budget. I think the Friends sets look amazing.
Just picked up the people pack- fun fair set. I couldn’t resist it’s so cool. I’m planning to save for 3 in 1 UFO carnival ride set to go with the fun fair set.
Those age good choices! I like the UFO ride too. It’s pretty neat! 😀
