One of the surprise hit themes of 2015 was the LEGO Scooby-Doo sets, which generated an enormous amount of buzz and flew out of stores quickly. Even so, there aren’t any new Scooby-Doo sets announced for 2016 or even rumored for 2017, so the theme may be at an early end. However, there’s still one more item on the horizon: an exclusive LEGO Scooby-Doo Minifigure and movie combo pack is now up for order!Continue Reading →

As I was looking over my articles and reviewing what was left to talk about as far as LEGO Summer 2016 sets go, I was shocked to discover that there was an advent calendar I hadn’t talked about yet! Yes, I covered the LEGO Star Wars 2016 Advent Calendar and LEGO City 2016 Calendar last month–but that’s only two out of three! Completing the trio as usual, the LEGO Friends 2016 Advent Calendar 41131 is coming our way in September 2016!Continue Reading →

Before moving on to discussing other themes, there’s one more set in LEGO Creator Summer 2016 sets range that I really want to talk about. While it’s definitely not as big, fancy or expensive as the previously-previewed Vacation Getaways and Lighthouse Point sets, I think that this set still has a lot of charm and personality that deserves to earn it quite a few purchases later this year. Coming in August: LEGO Creator Treehouse Adventures 31053!Continue Reading →
