Every year in October, LEGO fans start to wonder what the following year will have in store. We have already seen leaks with set names, but now we have pictures to go with them.

In this post we are going to look at the Star Wars range for 2015.

Star Wars

Unfortunately Star Wars Episode VII isn’t scheduled for release until December 2015, so it is too early for sets based on the film. What we do have so far is a collection of sets from the existing parts of the Star Wars universe, including more from the new Rebels cartoon. There is also a second series of Microfighters sets.

Technic

The 2015 range has quite a diverse collection of subjects. There should be something here for you no matter what type of vehicle interests you.

In this post we are going to look at City, Ultra Agents and the return of Pirates.

City

LEGO City in 2015 appears to have two main areas; Swamp Police and Demolition. Some of the swamp police sets look nice, but generally we don’t have a heap of interest for police sets. The demolition sets have a lot of character – that LEGO port-a-loo is hilarious.

In this post we are going to look at Friends and the new Elves theme. Both of these themes focus on pink and purple colours, so we thought it made sense to group them together.

Friends

After the adventures that the Friends characters went on last year, these sets seem quite tame for the most part. Lots of stereotypically ‘girly’ subjects like the hair salon. The hot air balloon is quite interesting.

Ninjago

The 2015 Ninjago sets will see our favourite plastic ninja’s taking on the snake inspired Anacondrai. Certainly some interesting sets here.

The LEGO Movie

The film may have been a 2014 release, but the tie-in sets will continue in 2015. The Double Decker Couch seems to be the standout, with a great selection of characters in what should be an affordable set.
