First Look At Ford Speed Champions Sets

We’re still not sure if these sets will be showing up in Australia (they weren’t in the Australian catalogue) but we now have a first look at two of the 2016 Speed Champions sets featuring Ford vehicles.

The details come from a cute little video posted on twitter by the global Ford account. The included sets are 75871 Ford Mustang GT and 75875 Ford F-150 Raptor & Model A Hot Rod and according to the tweet they will be released on March 1st.

LEGO have just launched a new page on their website with a heap of new details about the Angry Birds Movie sets coming out later this year.

When the theme was first announced there was a lot of negativity but as more information comes to light the sets start to look quite tempting. They all look like really fun builds with lots of play features.

It’s unclear if the movie will be a success or not but these sets have the potential to be hits with younger LEGO fans.

So far there are 6 sets announced:

  • 75826 King Pig’s Castle
  • 75825 Piggy Pirate Ship
  • 75824 Pig City Teardown
  • 75823 Bird Island Egg Heist
  • 75822 Piggy Plane Attack
  • 75821 Piggy Car Escape

We’ve included a main image of each set below but head over to the site for a lot more information.

1H 2016 Catalogue Thumb

There are lots on exciting LEGO sets being released this year and while some of them are now available online there are usually savings to be had if you can find products in a retail store. Thanks to the latest Australian retail catalogue we now know when the various themes and sets will be released, at least for the first half of 2016. This is a retail catalogue so no exclusives unfortunately.

We’ve included a full breakdown below with every set. It’s a comprehensive list with links to every set’s product page. It certainly looks like it’s going to be a busy start of the year.

You can check out the catalogue for yourself here.

Note: In the table below the links are automatically generated, and not every set will be on the LEGO site yet. There are also some sets with no thumbnail image yet. For a better look at those sets check out the catalogue.

LEGO Catalogue For First Half Of 2016 Now Online

1H2016 Catalogue

LEGO has released a copy of the catalogue for the first half of 2016. The catalogue shows off all of the sets that we’ll be seeing in stores up until June.

This seems to be a generic catalogue with no specific release dates. Also, because this is not specifically Australian there is no guarantee that we’ll be getting all of the sets.

Plenty of first looks at new sets here, including a Captain America Civil War set that may contain spoilers for the film. There are also more pictures of the new Nexo Knights theme.

You can check out the catalogue for yourself here.

After you read the catalogue let us know what 2016 sets you are excited for.

First 2016 Sets To Go On Sale December 26

2016 Set Details

While doing an update on the database that used for managing sales and set information we discovered that prices came through for a heap of the 2016 sets. It’s not uncommon for these sets to appear online a little early, but it was quite a surprise to discover that these sets are all due to be released at the online LEGO store on December 26th.

We’ve compiled a list of the sets and their official Australian RRP. Obviously with the range of sales we have in Australia it should be pretty easy to grab these sets for 20% at some point when they show up in stores.

Click on any of the thumbnails for a larger look at the sets, or we’ve included a link to the product page for each.

2016 Set Images
