LEGO Carousel 10257 Box Front 2017 Set

If you ever go on this thing called “the Internet”, you very likely have seen leaked information and photos of a mysterious addition to the LEGO Creator Fairground sub-theme of amusement park rides. Out of respect for TLG’s wishes, I haven’t talked about that set at all. But the time for secrecy is over, as TLG has officially dropped the curtain today, revealing what’s bound to be one of the most popular and best-selling sets of 2017: the LEGO Creator Carousel 10257!

Toy Fair LEGO Batman Movie Summer 2017 Sets: Batwing!

LEGO 70916 The Batwing Box Batman Movie Summer 2017

As we’re just a couple months away from the LEGO Batman Movie Summer 2017 sets being launched, I want to finish my previews of the sets this weekend. And next up is the largest and most expensive of the mass-release sets! It’s a new spin on one of the most iconic Batman vehicles of all-time, and it has one of the best price-per-piece values of the year: the LEGO Batman Movie Batwing 70916!

LEGO City Summer 2017 Sets: Bus Station 60154 Photos Preview!

LEGO City Summer 2017 Sets: Bus Station 60154

The LEGO Group broke with tradition just a little bit at New York Toy Fair 2017, in that for the first time since I can remember, not all of the summer sets displayed at the event had corresponded boxes next to them in the booth! No, it’s not that the boxes weren’t ready or that TLG didn’t want to display them–there were just so many sets that debuted that there simply wasn’t room to show all the boxes! And one set that went box-less at the show was also one of my favorites: the Summer 2017 LEGO City Bus Station 60154!

But hey, one good hit deserves another, right? And this August, we’re getting it: the Summer 2017 LEGO City People Pack Fun at the Beach 60153 is on the way!

LEGO Batman Movie Two-Face Double Demolition 70915 Set!

LEGO Batman Movie Summer 2017 Sets Two-Face Set Box 70915

The last half-decade has been good to me as far as seeing things in movies I’ve waited my entire life for. I finally got to see that amazing deleted scene with the Wampas from Empire Strikes Back when Star Wars launched on Blu Ray a few years ago, and this winter I got to see something I’ve waited almost as long for: Billy Dee Williams as Two-Face! I was pretty distraught when there was no LEGO Batman Movie Two-Face Minifigure announced in the first wave of sets, but luckily he’s coming in the Summer 2017 LEGO Batman Movie Two-Face Double Demolition 70915 set…

With The LEGO Batman Movie hitting theaters a week before the 2017 New York Toy Fair, TLG had already spilled the beans and revealed the four upcoming LEGO Batman Movie Summer 2017 Sets before Toy Fair even began. But while we knew what was coming and had seen a teaser photo of the summer sets, I got to be up-close and personal with each of them at the Toy Fair–including the LEGO Batman Movie Bane Toxic Truck Attack 70914 set!

LEGO Summer 2017 Sets: Modular Family Villa 31069 Photos!

31069 LEGO Modular Family Villa Summer 2017 Set

The focus of my LEGO Summer 2017 sets photo previews thus far has been primarily licensed sets, so today let’s step back today and take a look at a set that’s about as unlicensed as you can get. It’s the Grand Poohbah of the classic-styled LEGO Creator Summer 2017 sets, and a set that had three awesome possible builds–it’s the LEGO Modular Family Villa 31069!

LEGO Star Wars Summer 2017 Sets Scout Trooper Speeder Bike!

LEGO Star Wars Summer 2017 Sets Scout Trooper & Speeder Bike

I’ve been moving a (dead) snail’s pace in my New York Toy Fair 2017 LEGO Summer 2017 sets photos preview coverage, so I’m going to try to bang out previews for a few sets today while I have some spare time. And with that in mind, let’s talk about two sets in one preview! Not only is the popular LEGO Star Wars Buildable figure line continuing this summer with the Stormtrooper Commander, but we’re getting our first-ever vehicle set in this sub-theme: the Scout Trooper & Speeder Bike!

LEGO Pirates of the Caribbean Silent Mary 71042 Set Box Photos!

LEGO Silent Mary 71042 Box Pirates of the Caribbean 5

While many fans were expecting the “big” set revealed at the New York Toy Fair 2017 LEGO booth to be the LEGO Star Wars UCS Snowspeeder, that vehicle actually didn’t make an appearance. One set that did make its debut, though, is the 2017 LEGO Pirates of the Caribbean Silent Mary 71042 pirate ship! Better late than never, right? So although you can see official photos online already, let’s take a look at a compilation of my in-person photos from Toy Fair, along with fresh photos of the box that just hit the internet today…
