Release Schedule For The Second Half of 2018

2HY 2018 Catalogue Cover

The latest LEGO Catalogue is out, which means we now have an official source on the release schedule for the the second half of 2018′s sets.

Considering that they are already in most shops it will come as no surprise that Creator is scheduled for June. This lineup includes the Pirate Roller Coaster as well as the other 3-in-1 sets.

LEGO Train fans will be hanging out for July when the new City range is released. The lineup includes the new Arctic sets as well as new trains, City Hospital and the new people pack.

July is also the month for new Friends sets. The 2HY 2018 Friends range focuses primarily on the racing sub-theme but there are also some interesting sets like 41346 Friendship Box or 41347 Heartlake City Resort.

Lastly for July is new Ninjago sets. Some great looking sets including 70652 Stormbringer that can be integrated with Boost.

You’ll have to wait for August for new Star Wars including the great looking 75216 Snoke’s Throne Room and an all new Sandcrawler.

August is also the scheduled month for new Technic sets such as the massive 42082 Rough Terrain Crane.

Unikitty! is another August release with both the sets and blind bags on the way.

Lastly for August is 4 new Juniors sets - 2 Disney Princess sets, a Friends one and 10764 City Central Airport.

The last sets on the schedule are the new Minecraft sets due in September.

You can check out the catalogue for yourself here or see a full list of the included sets below.

Exclusivity Information For June 2018

Detective

Despite what a calendar will tell you June officially kicks of the second half of 2018 for LEGO. That means that there are a heap of new sets coming out.

I have previously done up a list of sets that are on the LEGO website but thanks to LEGO Australia I have information on who will be stocking what sets.

Big W will be home to the huge 76105 Hulkbuster: Ultron Edition from June and fingers crossed they offer a good discount on this set during their toy sale.

The new BrickHeadz continue to be exclusive to Myer, David Jones and specialty toy stores.

Target gets an exclusive Creator set (31078 Treehouse Treasures) and an exclusive Friend set (41343 Heartlake City Airplane Tour). Joining the Hulkbuster at Big W is Friends set 41350 Spinning Brushes Car Wash.

The 76109 Quantum Realm Explorers set from Ant-Man will be available from Myer, David Jones and specialty toy stores which is great considering the original Ant-Man set wasn’t released here at all.

Myer will also be exclusively getting 10875 Duplo Cargo Train, for the younger LEGO fans.

Perhaps the most intriguing part of the list is that Toys R Us will be getting 5 exclusives (see the list below). If Toys R Us can’t find a way out of it’s current situation then it will be interesting to see what happens to their exclusives.

You can see the full list of exclusives below. If there is something not on the list then it is either a general release or not yet decided.
