2013 LEGO sets & minifigures videos

We have talked about the 2013 LEGO sets coming up later this year extensively, but I also wanted to share with you a few videos from Spieletest.at to give you an even better idea of what’s coming. Spieletest.at is one of my favorite channels on YouTube as they always have excellent coverage of the toy fairs, and this year is no exception. Just take a look! 😀

2013 LEGO Sets - Nurnberg Toy Fair

2013 LEGO STAR WARS SETS & MINIFIGS: there is a nice assortment of sets and a full array of minifigures in this theme. I have been very impressed with the LEGO Star Wars minifigures in the past couple of years and LEGO is not disappointing this year either.

2013 LEGO MARVEL & DC SUPER HEROES SETS & MINIFIGS: the sets are on the smallish side in this wave, however the minifigs are just excellent. And there are a lot of them! Any LEGO Super Hero collector should be in ecstasy- at least that’s what I think! 🙄

2013 LEGO LORD OF THE RINGS SETS & MINIFIGS: to me this is the most exciting collection this year. A lot of fans are complaining that the Lord of the Rings sets in this wave are too small, but I’m quite happy with them. Small means more affordable so I can buy a greater variety. And one can always buy multiplies of each set to expand a scene (like the one with the Black Gate). The minifigures continue to be absolutely fantastic – I mean really; LEGO is going out of its way to make Lord of the Rings fans happy.

2013 LEGO CASTLE SETS & MINIFIGS: this video actually only shows the minifigures in the now LEGO Castle line, but you can look up the previous discussions for the sets themselves in the LEGO Castle section.

2013 LEGO LEGENDS OF CHIMA SETS & MINIFIGS: here again the focus is on the minifigures, but we discussed the sets already anyway. If you missed them check out the LEGO Legends of Chima section.

2013 LEGO FRIENDS SETS & MINIFIGS: more sweet sets for girls! The LEGO Friends sets have been a huge success since their launch, and looks like LEGO is still full of ideas for interesting and innovative sets to build up Hearlake City. I particularly like the school in this wave, and we finally get some boys included! 😛

So what do you think? How do you like the upcoming LEGO sets, and especially the minifigures? Are you planning to collect them? Which ones? Feel free to share and discuss in the comment section below! 😉

    The summer definitely made up for the Winter releases, the only thing I really loved about the winter was TMNT, Spider Cycle Chase, and Arctic Batman, but now they are almost last in my list. Let’s see, this is what I am looking to get:
    All Castle sets
    2 Councils of Elrond
    Iron Man Malibu Mansion
    …In that order of priority.

    • Micho February 19, 2013, 10:21 AM

      I forgot to mention the Pirate Ship ambush, but I am waiting on that to be clearanced and I’m planning on converting it into Sao Feng’s pirate ship from POTC.

      • admin February 19, 2013, 1:18 PM

        That’s a great idea! 😀

  • Micho February 19, 2013, 11:03 AM

        I got brick beards bounty and the soldier fort, but it would be nice to have some more sets! 😉

    • admin February 19, 2013, 1:19 PM

      Yeah, AFOLs are such a whiny, never satisfied bunch! :mrgreen:

  • Fire Ninja Jedi February 19, 2013, 11:24 AM

    That’s a great bunch of sets and minifigures! I’m planning on getting some!

  • percy jackson February 19, 2013, 12:42 PM

    hmm… in still disapointed that there is no NINJAGO 🙁 but the castle theme (well the minifigs) are awesome! and lego friends…. yuck yuck yuck. (sorry about that lego friends fans) and LOTR cccccooooooollllllll! last but not least STAR WARS! I WANT THEM… ALL! (ok maybe not, but most of them) STAR WARS!

  • The Yellow Ninja February 19, 2013, 1:53 PM

    This looks AWESOME!!! What is that AWESOME looking set at 1:01 in the star wars video? Not to mention the AWESOME new LOTR minifigs! But wait! Is that an upcoming cruise ship I see at 1:30 in the friends video? This year is gonna be EPIC! 😀

  • tgb.legoguy February 19, 2013, 2:19 PM

    I don’t really like the new santa jango. Too many colours, but maybe it would look good with one of those red mandalorian helmets from the darth maul set

    • Fire Ninja Jedi February 19, 2013, 2:37 PM

      Yeah, I agree, the blue Jango head does not match at all! Good point about the other Madolorian helmets though!

    • admin February 19, 2013, 3:03 PM

      Yeah, I was thinking of that too. When I first saw images I was hoping that this is a proto and LEGO will change the printing on the helmet to something like red and orange – or something compatible with the Santa-suit. Unfortunately that doesn’t seem to be the case. 😕

  • Legoman640 February 19, 2013, 3:49 PM

    Lego is going all out with these awesome sets! I definitely am getting these sets!

    I’m thinking on getting some Castle,Star Wars,and Galaxy Squad sets. I have to get those. I’m really looking forward to the Star Wars sets. I’m a Star wars fan and I hope on getting some of those sets. Oh,and I forgot to mention the Palace Cinema. (i’m planning on making a city so i’m definitely getting that.)

  • Legoman640 February 19, 2013, 3:51 PM

    I really hope they bring out these sets quick in Nassau. 🙁

  • Ninjoey February 19, 2013, 4:27 PM

    the lord of the rings minifigures ARE AMAISINGLY DETAILED!!!! me likey the white wizards!!!!!!

  • Legoman640 February 19, 2013, 5:12 PM

      I would love to see the witch king of angmar in minfigure form as well, maybe with a fell beast. But I’m pretty sure you are referring to the mouth of sauron being realeased.

      • admin February 20, 2013, 10:21 AM

        Yes, it is the Mouth of Sauron that is being released in this next wave. I also heard rumors that the Witch King and a Fell Beast will come in the wave after this. 😉

        • pythor953 February 20, 2013, 2:30 PM

          Really??? Wow thats a rumour that I really hope is true 🙂 I never understood the reasoning for a mouth of sauron minifigure anyways. I mean it isn’t even in the trilogy, it’s in a deleted scene. It isn’t something I’ve seen lego try before.

          • admin February 20, 2013, 8:46 PM

            The Mouth of Sauron is actually in the extended version of the movie, not in a deleted scene. Most likely most LOTR fans would have the extended version, so he is not entirely out of place. I do agree though that the Witch King and the Fell Beasts are a lot more prominent then the Mouth of Sauron, who only has like a 5 minute role in the whole movie.

            • Pythor953 February 21, 2013, 7:47 AM

              Extended version? I had no idea there even was one. I think I should definetly try and see that.

              • admin February 21, 2013, 10:00 AM

                Yeah, you should definitely watch it. I HIGHLY recommend the extended version. There is just so much more goodness there! 😀

  • 2x4 Brick February 19, 2013, 6:28 PM

    JABBA THE HUT SAIL BARGE AND WAS THAT A NEW YODA HEAD I SAW?!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! 🙄 I know just a teensy bit over-excited! 😛

  • NoahNace10 February 20, 2013, 10:14 AM

    I want the LOTR sets so badly!!!

    • JediToa February 20, 2013, 10:33 AM

      Me too! The hard part will be not buying other sets!

  • Håkan February 20, 2013, 1:54 PM

    I couldn’t watch the Superhero clip for some reason…

    • admin February 20, 2013, 2:21 PM

      Hm… it was working yesterday… I’m not sure why they set it to private today. I will monitor it in the next couple of days and see if they un-private it. 😕

      • Håkan February 20, 2013, 5:07 PM

        Yeah, it’s odd…

        • admin February 20, 2013, 8:48 PM

          I read somewhere that the Super Hero sets and minifigs featured in the video are actually under some kind of no picutres/no video embargo, so perhaps LEGO asked that the video be taken down. At least for the time being…

  • Håkan February 21, 2013, 7:57 AM

    Oh well, thanks for the info.

  • Micah February 26, 2013, 8:00 PM

    I hope the fox is in a cheap lego set because that’s my favorite minifigure so far! 😀

    • admin February 27, 2013, 12:55 PM

      Yeah, I like the fox the most too. Very cute! 😀

  • Bilbo Baggins of the Shire March 27, 2013, 9:20 AM

    I am a k.f.o.l.

  • ian June 8, 2013, 4:39 PM

    hey anyone know where i can get the rotating display for the minifigure. AWESOME IDEA!!!

    • admin June 8, 2013, 6:55 PM

      Ian, those are LEGO’s own displays. I’m not sure if you can buy them anywhere, but I don’t think they should be that hard to make. Just a circular platform with a little motor to go around… doesn’t seem difficult. 🙂
