New 2014 Sets: LEGO Creator

The UK Version of Amazon has released a heap of new set details, and we are going to go through them all for you.

Here are the Creator sets coming soon

The new Bike Shop and Cafe set looks like the stand-out in this wave of sets. The set looks like a scaled down version of the popular Modular Building series. We suspect there will be a lot of people adding this to their City line-up.

New 2014 Sets: LEGO City

The UK Version of Amazon has released a heap of new set details, and we are going to go through them all for you.

Here are the City sets coming soon

Looks like the citizens of LEGO City are heading back to the Arctic for the first time since 2000. We also have three new sets that are all perfect for train fans.

New 2014 Sets: LEGO Ninjago

The UK Version of Amazon has released a heap of new set details, and we are going to go through them all for you.

New Ninjago

Not a lot of new sets, but the Battle for Ninjago City set looks great.

New 2014 Sets: LEGO Chima

The UK Version of Amazon has released a heap of new set details, and we are going to go through them all for you.

A heap of new Chima sets

We aren’t big fans of Chima, but these sets look great. Some really interesting designs here.

New 2014 Sets: LEGO Friends

The UK Version of Amazon has released a heap of new set details, and we are going to go through them all for you.

First up we have LEGO Friends.

These sets seem to be a bit mixed. Firstly, it is great that the Friends girls get to go one some adventures. That was one criticism of the theme from when it was first released. Unfortunately it’s not all good news; there are still a lot of stereotypically ‘girly’ things like a shopping mall and the caravan set which talks about sunbathing and sharing secrets by lamplight.
