Believe it or not, there are still Summer 2016 LEGO sets I took photos of at the NY Toy Fair 2016 and still haven’t talked about. Doubly shocking is a few of those sets are from the Star Wars theme! That ends now, as tonight I’m discussing the Eclipse Fighter on my Star Wars blog, and over here the main ship from this year’s Freemaker Adventures cartoon: the LEGO Star Wars Star Scavenger 75147!

Now that I’ve given the LEGO Friends Summer 2016 sets some much-deserved love, let’s go back and talk about one of this year’s two big City themes: LEGO Volcano! There’s a variety of neon green vehicle sets coming as part of this range, but only the largest set of them all comes with an actual volcano–the centerpiece of the theme is the LEGO City Volcano Exploration Base 60124!

LEGO Friends Amusement Park Space Ride 41128 Box

Earlier this week I talked about the magnificent centerpiece of the Summer 2016 LEGO Friends Amusement Park–the Roller Coaster set! But hey, what’s a centerpiece without complementary sets on the side to enhance it, right? And while the LEGO Bumper Cars set is a retailer exclusive that we can’t see just yet, the super-cool LEGO Space Ride 41128 was on display at New York Toy Fair 2016…

LEGO Friends 2016 Advent Calendar 41131 Box

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!

41130 LEGO Friends Amusement Park Roller Coaster Set Box

When word leaked out that a LEGO Roller Coaster set was coming later this year, collectors went positively wild with anticipation. But when people found out it was a Friends set, the crowd went, well… mild. Even so, despite the lukewarm reception and criticism it’s received from some, I was extremely impressed when I saw the Summer 2016 LEGO Friends Amusement Park Roller Coaster at New York Toy Fair 2016 last month…

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!

LEGO Batman Summer 2016 Sets: Killer Croc Sewer Smash!

LEGO Killer Croc BigFig 2016 Minifigure

Yesterday I posted my full hi-res photos preview of one of the two LEGO Batman Summer 2016 sets shown at New York Toy Fair 2016, and I figured I might as well talk about the other set while I’m still in a Batman-kind-of-mood! As cool as 76054 Scarecrow’s Harvest of Fear is, this set is a little bit bigger and more expensive, but is it actually better? It’s the LEGO Batman Killer Croc Sewer Smash 76055!

LEGO Disney Summer 2016 Sets: Rapunzel’s Best Day Ever!

LEGO 41065 Rapunzel's Best Day Ever Summer 2016 Set

With the monumental reveal of the LEGO Disney Minifigures Series 1 being the talk of the brick-collecting world today and all, I thought now might be the ideal moment to talk about the other Disney Princess Summer 2016 set. It’s much smaller (and cheaper!) than Belle’s Enchanted Castle, but the Tangled LEGO Disney Princess Rapunzel’s Best Day Ever 41065 has a real charm for a small-sized set!
