Hamleys Toy Shop in the UK has revealed images of two new upcoming LEGO Minecraft sets. They are LEGO Minecraft 21114 The Farm and 21113 The Cave. Looks like these will be the first LEGO Minecraft sets to feature LEGO minifigures in them. The site also had product descriptions along with retail prices in British pounds. (via youtube user thethreevirtues, eurobricks, thebrickfan)

Yield renewable resources with The Farm! Youll need food to survive, so fence in the livestock and channel the flowing water to nurture the crops. Harvest pumpkins, wheat, sugar cane and carrots.

Rebuild the set for more LEGO Minecraft creations or combine with 21115 The First Night and other sets in the series for an even bigger Minecraft adventure!

The LEGO Ideas Blog has confirmed that while both 21109 Exo-Suit and 21110 Research Institute are sold out at the moment, they will be getting more in. If you are wondering why they are not taking more backorders, the reason is most likely because the next batch of sets being produced have all been ordered by the “backorders” already. So fear not! The two new LEGO Ideas sets will be available again in the future once they have caught up with the demand.
On August 1st, LEGO Ideas launched two sets: #21109 Exo Suit and #21110 Research Institute. Currently, both sets have sold through their initial stock and are back-ordered. This means that more sets are on the way, so we hope you will be able to secure these and other special sets from LEGO Ideas.
Thanks to ncbarrett for the heads up!

August 13 Update: We’ve removed the images as per LEGO’s request. These images apparently got leaked from the Mexican factory. They are not to be shared until October 15th, 2014 as per LEGO’s agreement with their license owner. We ask that if you still have the images, please delete them and refrain from sharing it with other people. Doing this would really help LEGO out during this crucial time.
These new Hobbit sets will be based on the new Hobbit The Battle of the Evil Armies movie, the third and final installment of The Hobbit. The movie will be released later this year on December 2 in the UK and December 17 in the USA. This means that the sets should be available sometime during October/November. From the pictures, what do you think of these sets?
#79015 LEGO Witch-King Battle
- 101 pieces, 3 minifigures
#79016 LEGO Attack on Lake-Town (this looks like an extension to the current 79013 Lake Town Chase set!)
- 313 pieces, 5 minifigures
#79017 LEGO The Battle of Five Armies
