    2014 LEGO X-Men Minifigures

    Van De Ven Jari from Belgium provided us an image of two LEGO X-Men 2014 Minifigures: Magneto and Storm. Although there’s only just an image of the minifigures, note that this could still be a rumor. However, there’s a good chance that we’ll get some LEGO X-Men sets soon considering that X-Men is part of Marvel (and LEGO currently has the Marvel license).

    Forum member dehnehsu found an image of the 2014 McDonald’s LEGO Movie Happy Meal toys earlier this morning. These LEGO toys will be part of the next Happy Meal promotion. So it looks like we won’t be building anything with LEGO, but instead we get cups that have LEGO Movie Characters on them. There’s 8 cups in total for you to collect. From an adult’s perspective, these are probably way better than the other toys they give out as the cup is actually something useful. Their Happy Meals do make a nice complete snack when you crave some McDonald’s.

    If you live in Canada, Happy Meals are only $3.99 CAD and comes with choice of 4 pieces Nuggets, Chicken Wrap, Cheeseburger or Hamburger, Small Fries/Apple Slices, Yogurt, Child’s Drink and the Toy.

    The next Happy Meal toy will be Adventure Time and Paul Frank (January 17) and will then be followed by The LEGO Movie.

    Toys R Us Hong Kong has revealed a new LEGO Star Wars promo minifigure known as TC-4. The red droid will be part of a Toys R Us Hong Kong promotion where if you spend $1200 HKD or more on 2014 LEGO sets, you have the possibility of getting either a free White Boba Fett, Chrome Darth Vader or TC-4 (first 150 customers). The free minifigure will be random. Thanks to Eurobricks user bkctsang for the news.

    LEGO had sets and toys for girls in the past, (LEGO Belville) however, it was only really in 2012 when LEGO succeed in capturing more of the girls market. With better designs and sets that are desireable, LEGO Friends became one of the hottest toys and “must haves” for girls. This not only helped LEGO to continue its increasing popularity, but it also helped LEGO continue to expand its profits and business portfolios.

    Of course, a new launch is often times met with criticisms and challenges. There were issues with gender stereotypes, how LEGO Friends didn’t have the traditional LEGO minifigure and many more. In addition, many competitors seeing the significant popularity with LEGO Friends have made similar products such as Mega Bloks Barbie. LEGO though was able to overcome many of these issues through innovation and constant maintaining its highest quality standards from their toys to customer service.

    Beginning this year, LEGO has launched a new theme known as LEGO Disney Princess which primarily targets girls. More sets from the popular LEGO Friends line have also been released with focus on interior, allowing lots of playability.

    Disney Princess

    Six new LEGO Disney Licensed Princess sets have been released ranging from $12.99-$69.99. The sets are built with standard LEGO pieces like LEGO Friends, but you don’t get minifigures. Instead, you get mini LEGO dolls as “minifigures”. The sets are similar to LEGO Friends, but the theme is different as it focuses more on fantasy with princes and princesses. These new Disney sets certainly look promising and with 2 strong brands together, these sets would most likely sell well.

    • 41054 Rapunzel’s Creativity Tower
    • 41053 Cinderella’s Dream Carriage

    • 41051 Merida’s Highland Games

    Unlike Disney Princess, LEGO Friends is based more on a typical City life. Eight brand-new LEGO Friends sets have been released in the January wave. All of them can be easily obtained from most of the big box retailers with the exception of 41056 Heartlake News Van. This set is only available at LEGO Shop at Home, LEGO Brand Stores and one big box retailer (either Toys R Us, Wal-Mart or Target). The largest set in this wave is Sunshine Ranch. However, we’ve received quite a few similar sets like this already including 3189 Heartlake Stables and Toys R Us’ exclusive 3185 Summer Riding Camp.

    We also get a cool 41035 Heartlake Juice Bar building which would complement existing sets like City Park Café and Downtown Bakery sets. Like previous waves, LEGO has once again produced 3 standard $/£9.99 sets featuring one minifigure. Amazon has them marked up to $11.99, so if you want one of these small sets, your best bet would be to get it directly from LEGO and other retailers.

    The best set out of this wave appears to be 41037 Stephanie’s Beach House. Priced at $39.99, you get a two story building with lots of play functions. You also get a windsurfer! This would definitely go well with the Dolphin Cruiser.

    Hungarian Toy Shop has revealed a list of some of the 2014 Summer Star Wars sets. The list is a rumor and prices are only estimates. A good chunk of the sets are remakes, but most of them were produced quite a while ago except the AT-AT (8129 AT-AT Walker from 2010). Nothing too exciting with another Snowspeeder since we’ve got several of those in Hoth Rebel Base, Wampa Cave and Battle of Hoth already. However, its nice to see remakes of Mos Eisley Cantina and Imperial Star Destroyer as its been a long time since we’ve had that. Quite a good wave for the summer. What do you think of these new sets? (via FBTB and Groove Bricks)

    • 75048 – Phantom ~20-30 EUR
    • 75049 – Snowspeeder 278 pieces ~30-40 EUR
    • 75050 – B-wing 448 pieces ~50-60 EUR
    • 75051 – Jedi Hunter 490 pieces ~60-70 EUR
    • 75052 – Mos Eisley Cantina   615 pieces ~70-80 EUR
    • 75053 – The Ghost piece number unknown yet ~90-100 EUR
    • 75054 – AT-AT  1138 pieces ~110EUR
    • 75055 – Imperial Star Destroyer ~120EUR

    Shown below is the 2006 Version of the 6211 Imperial Star Destroyer. Hopefully with this new version, they will fix up the stability of the bottom of the ship (which they did in the 2009 Venator class Republic Attack Cruiser). Quite an optimistic wave for the summer. What do you think of these new sets?

    A picture of a new LEGO Movie set was posted by Eurobricks user Carlos S. LEGO 70810 MetalBeard’s Sea Cow contains 2741 pieces which will make it one of the biggest LEGO Movie set so far. No price point or any other info has been released yet, but with the number of pieces, you can probably expect this to be around the $249.99-$349.99 USD range. Thanks to Patrick and Legolas for the news.
