We have discussed the LEGO Lone Ranger sets that are tied in with the upcoming Lone Ranger movie scheduled for release in July. The LEGO Lone Ranger sets will be released a bit earlier in April. You can see the preliminary images of all the sets here: 2013 LEGO Lone Ranger Sets Pictures!, and now let’s take a closer look! 😛
Last week detailed images of a couple of the LEGO Lone Ranger sets started circulating, but since I was out of town I didn’t have a chance to share them with you. However it is better later then never, so I thought to discuss them here. As a reminder, here is a list of the LEGO Lone Ranger sets:
- #79106 LEGO Lone Ranger Cavalry Builder
- #79107 LEGO Lone Ranger Comanche Camp
- #79108 LEGO Lone Ranger Stagecoach Escape
- #79109 LEGO Lone Ranger Colby City Showdown
- #79110 LEGO Lone Ranger Silver Mine Shootout
- #79111 LEGO Lone Ranger Constitution Train Chase
One of the LEGO Lone Ranger sets that we have a close up for now is the #79108 LEGO Lone Ranger Stagecoach Escape. In my opinion this is one of the nicest LEGO sets of this year. The stagecoach is wonderfully detailed and comes with 3 horses and 5 minifigures: The Lone Ranger, Tonto, Red, and two bandits. Red being one of the most extravagant female LEGO minifigures I have ever seen. I would say it doesn’t even matter if the Lone Ranger film flops. This set would be still excellent for any LEGO Western fan! Once available the LEGO Lone Ranger Stagecoach Escape set should be retailing for $30. (Click image for larger view.)
The second LEGO Lone Ranger set with better images is the #79111 LEGO Lone Ranger Train Chase. The set comes with a train including the locomotive, a coal-wagon, a trailer with a giant gun (I guess it will be clear from the movie how this fits in), and another car. There is also a full loop of train-tracks, which is always nice to have. And there is a water-tower and 7 minifigures: Captain Jay Fuller, Tonto, Latham Cole, Butch Cavendish, Rebecca Reid, Danny Reid, and the Lone Ranger. This is another excellent set for LEGO Western fans that could be easily incorporated into any LEGO Western diorama, and the minifigs are lovely as well. The Train Chase set will be also available in April and for $90. (Click image for lager view.)
Here is the official description of the set: The chase is on to save Rebecca and Danny from Butch Cavendish and his gang of henchmen onboard the speeding train, Constitution! Help Tonto to place the dynamite and blow up the water tower to stop the speeding train in its tracks! Ride to the rescue with the Lone Ranger alongside on his trusty horse, Silver. Jump aboard the highly detailed locomotive with 3 cars and dodge the gatling gun! Uncover the secret coal wagon hideout, blow the prison wagon door with the dynamite and escape to safety with Rebecca and Danny!
There are also bit better pictures of the other LEGO Lone Ranger sets that are worth to take a look at.
As I mentioned above my thought is that no matter if the Lone Ranger movie will be great or a complete disaster, LEGO did a great job with these sets and they should be a favorite of LEGO Western fans. The sets are solidly designed and the minifigures offer a wide variety to populate any LEGO Western town. What do you think? Share your thoughts below! 😉
