    • admin May 27, 2013, 1:51 PM

      New Star Wars sets came out in May on Star Wars day, and more will come out in August. 😉

  • Kimono Jay- MOUTH OF LIGHTING May 27, 2013, 12:26 PM

    it wont let me view the castle sets on lego.com! 🙁

    • Kimono Jay- MOUTH OF LIGHTING May 27, 2013, 12:37 PM

      wait nevermind. I can now.. :]

    • admin May 27, 2013, 1:55 PM

      Actually I had that problem too. For me the Castle page just comes up blank. That’s why I suggested going to the New Items page where they show up just fine. 😉

  • The brick guy May 27, 2013, 12:31 PM

    AWESOME that means a week or so for the UK!
    I’ve been trying not to buy anything till these and the others came out so now I can go crazy and buy a truckload!!!!!!!!!!!!! 🙂
    Now which ones?!?

    • admin May 27, 2013, 1:55 PM

      Yeah, decisions, decision… let us knwo what you decide! 😀

      • The brick guy May 28, 2013, 1:54 PM

        Will do 🙂

  • legostuff71 May 27, 2013, 12:33 PM

    I just got the dragon mountain from the castle series. I think this set is the coolest of the castle series because everything else is just repeats.

    • ninja of stealth May 27, 2013, 12:38 PM

      hello legostuff71

      i’m interested in the dragon mountain, is it a good set to get? i’d like to hear back from you! if you want to explain in detail that’d be great!!

    • admin May 27, 2013, 1:56 PM

      Nice! How do you like the dragon? 😈

  • ninja of stealth May 27, 2013, 12:36 PM

    I getting overwhelmed with all the sets coming out and the one’s I want! so overwhelming!!!!!!!!!!! and so little time! :0

    • admin May 27, 2013, 1:58 PM

      Yeah, I know what you mean. I always make a list of the sets I definitely want, because so many new sets coming out can be quite overwhelming. I focus on the theme (does it fit with what I collect already?), the usufulness of the parts, and the minifigs. From this wave I’m getting the Galaxy Squad Mech, and the Lord of the Rings Council of Elrond for sure. What about you? What’s on your wish-list? 🙂

  • Kimono Jay- MOUTH OF LIGHTING May 27, 2013, 12:38 PM

    man…amazon doesn’t have then yet..(the castle ones) and i wish the star wars sets would be available now! it’s so hard for me to not spend my money on other legos before the one set i want comes out… 🙁

  • Kimono Jay- MOUTH OF LIGHTING May 27, 2013, 12:39 PM

    lol…I just realized my name says “Mouth Of Lighting” lighting….lol

  • Kimono Jay- MOUTH OF LIGHTNING May 27, 2013, 12:39 PM

    there. fixed it

    • admin May 27, 2013, 1:59 PM

      Your name is so long I never even noticed that! 😀

  • Meneldur son of Garamar May 27, 2013, 2:48 PM

    Wow! I just checked out Lego.com yesterday and finally found the new sets out! This couldn’t have been better timing, Admin. What I’m wondering is where the Lord of the Rings sets are? There are also many other sets not yet on Lego Shop. How come?

    • admin May 27, 2013, 5:32 PM

      Meneldur, I’m sure the LOTR sets will be listed soon. That is why I recommend checking the New Items section often. 🙂

      • admin May 27, 2013, 5:38 PM

        I just checked and the official release date is is June 1st for the LOTR sets. 😉

        • Meneldur son of Garamar May 27, 2013, 5:47 PM

          Thanks Admin!

  • Darkon May 27, 2013, 4:00 PM

    Nice. Sounds like I need to get to ToysRUs and see if they’ve gotten any of these sets in. On another note, Kre-o Transformers Minifigures series 2 just came out last week! Series 2 has a lot more Autobots than Series 1, including Arcee, Bulk, Hoist, and Perceptor. It also has Decepticons Breakdown, Hardshell, Blotch, and Lugnutz! Blotch looks awesome! I love it how he can transform into a giant swamp monster, and Hardshell’s goliath beetle mode looks really nice too! 😀

    • Meneldur son of Garamar May 27, 2013, 4:06 PM

      You’re really into Kre-o aren’t you?

  • Darkon May 27, 2013, 4:49 PM

    Actually, I’m just a huge Transformers fan. I’m only excited about Kre-o because their quality is equal to Lego, and Lego does not make Transformers sets. Basically I just want Lego minifigures of all my favorite Decepticons, and that is exactly what Kre-o is doing. I really hope 2014 brings us the Dinobots and Unicron! 🙂

  • legostuff71 May 27, 2013, 5:44 PM

    Hey, ninja of stealth . I like the dragon and the fact that the set seems somewhat incomplete. That’s great for me because , I can add to it with other sets. I am however disappointed that when the kingdom series came out they did not have a green dragon. As for so many choices of the other sets. I’m waiting for the lord of the rings and some of the star wars sets to come out. The hard part is to pace myself.

    • Meneldur son of Garamar May 27, 2013, 5:48 PM

      Yeah! The Hero Factory dragon is neat! It’s strange though that Lego doesn’t put Hero Factory products in the catalogs anymore. In fact I’ve noticed they actually have been leaving some sets out.

  • legostuff71 May 27, 2013, 5:47 PM

    Did you say june first? yeah, the LEGO god is smiling on me.

    • Rainbow Dash May 27, 2013, 8:10 PM

      Why is that your birthday or something?

  • Meneldur son of Garamar May 27, 2013, 5:54 PM

    I’m really glad that the LOTR stuff is coming out on June 1st. Perfect! Then I can get the Wizard Battle and Council of Elrond for my birthday right in time!

  • NRG kai May 27, 2013, 6:29 PM

    wow! love the castle and LOTR sets. im sooo happy castle came back!

  • lego trooper 91 May 27, 2013, 8:03 PM

    i just spent all my mony my brother selld me some lego star wars minifigures and i ordered a lego minifigures series 10 im brok 😀

  • Rainbow Dash May 27, 2013, 8:09 PM

    Interesting especially the Constracion figures Castle and LOTR

    In my opinion Star Wars is starting to get repetitive

  • MixBrix May 28, 2013, 12:28 AM

    I just checked it out too, thanks! I should mention that the Summer sets for Galaxy Squad are also available! Boo. Yah.

    • Meneldur son of Garamar May 28, 2013, 9:09 AM

      Yes! Yes! Yes! Galaxy Squad is so awesome! But where the heck is the Galactic Titan?

      • admin May 28, 2013, 9:43 AM

        Meneldur, the Titan is not yet released. I think it should be uploaded soon though. Galaxy Squad is also my favorite theme this year. 🙂

        • Meneldur son of Garamar May 28, 2013, 11:37 AM

          Okay. I have my eye on that one. 😀

  • crazy bricks May 30, 2013, 1:23 PM

    non of the new lord of the rings sets are are on the website exept the tower of orthanc but that is not available until July 1st

    • admin May 30, 2013, 1:46 PM

      I have read they will be listed on the 1st of June (beside the Tower, which will be available July 1st).

  • lego man awesome May 30, 2013, 9:29 PM

    What do you think is better lord of the rings pirate ship ambush or the council of Elrond AND the black gate.

    • admin May 31, 2013, 9:03 AM

      Hm… tough choice… it really depends what you want. If you like ships, the Pirate Ship Ambush is a great set! The ship is really beautiful and would fit well with other ships even if you want to change to theme from LOTR so regular pirates or Castle, or something. So it is very versatile.

      If you are really into LOTR as a theme, then the Council and the Black Gate would make more sense. They depict iconic scenes, and you would get many of the major characters of the saga. 🙂
