The largest toy company, Mattel, creator of Barbies and Hot Wheels toys has purchased Mega Brands. Mega Brands produces a variety of products, most notably building blocks which are compatible with LEGO pieces. Its a direct building blocks competitor for LEGO as many of its products and theme lines are very similar to LEGO such as Mega Bloks Halo Wars & LEGO Star Wars and Mega Bloks Barbie & LEGO Friends.
Hasbro, the third largest toy company has Kre-o as its building block toy brand. With LEGO’s soaring popularity and profit each year, its no doubt that many other companies also want to take a share of the pie. What will this mean for LEGO and will it still be able to continue to differentiate itself from the other clone brands?

The 2014 New York Toy Fair started today and is well underway. ToyArk has posted many images for many of the upcoming Late Spring/Summer 2014 sets. These include LEGO Chima, Ninjago, The LEGO Movie and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.
Most of the LEGO Super Heroes (Marvel and DC Comics) on display were seen before and are already available for sale in the United Kingdom (and starting to become available in North America now). However, they did have a new one that was not revealed yet and that’s the LEGO Marvel Super Heroes 76022 X-Men vs The Sentinel set. FBTB reports that this new LEGO X-Men set will be released a little later in June and will be priced at $49.99 USD.

The LEGO Disney Lone Rangers line has been discontinued making this one of the shorter lived themes as it didn’t even last a full year. All sets will be retired. The Lone Ranger Movie was released back in June 2013 and the sets were released a month earlier. Box office sales for The Lone Ranger did not even cover production and marketing efforts as the movie didn’t do as well as expected. Rather than hold on to a struggling line, its good that LEGO decided to retire it sooner than later.
The LEGO Lone Rangers sets are no longer available for sale online at LEGO Shop at Home. Though, if you are still looking for some of these sets, Amazon.com, Target.com and many Brick & Mortar stores still have them instock. Thanks to forum member StClair for the heads up.
