Check Out These Sets Coming In 2018

LEGO have updated their servers with images of some of the sets that will be released in 2017. There’s Creator, Technic and City sets to check out. With the images of these already online it’s likely that these are all January release sets but that hasn’t been confirmed. No pricing as yet.


31071 Drone Explorer – 109 pieces

Interesting subject for a set. It seems to be a piloted drone, but there is no minifigure included. Alternate builds are a plane and airboat.


All The New Sets Coming Soon

We are only a few days away from the start of June, which means that the first wave of 2HY 2017 sets should be appearing in stores very soon.

The latest catalogue isn’t available yet, but the LEGO online store gives us a great overview of sets that we are likely to see released locally in June. You can view a full list with RRP and links at the end of this article but I’ve included a bit of a summary. Click on any of the images in the article to view a larger version.


There are two sub-themes being released and they couldn’t be more different. The first sub-theme is summery and beach inspired, with sets such as the 41317 Sunshine Catamaran.


The second sub-theme is a wintery getaway for the girls of Heartlake City. The 41324 Snow Resort Ski Lift looks particularly interesting.


Not related to either of those sub-themes is 41318 Heartlake Hospital, which is likely to be popular.



An interesting mix of sets on offer. There are some stand-alone sets like the 60154 Bus Station set but the majority of the sets fall into the two sub-themes…






I think the Jungle sets look great and a lot of people are going to want the various big cats on offer.

There is also a follow-up to the fun in the park set – 60153 Fun at The Beach.

2ND Half 2016 Thumb

Following on from our previous article about LEGO updating their online store with some of the 2nd half of 2016 sets – there are now even more sets listed.

The current listing seems to be all of the new sets that will be available online in June. Still no details of retail release dates, but at least we have pricing.

You can check out the full listing of nearly 80 sets below, each with a link to the product page.

Pricing across the board does seem to be a bit higher than people would like. We’ll be looking into that in a separate article.

Heap of New Sets Added To LEGO’s Online Store

2ND Half 2016 Thumb

LEGO have just updated their Australian online store, with a heap of the second half 2016 sets now listed.

The new sets cover a range of themes including City, Creator and Nexo Knights. Included in the batch is the LEGO City Fun in The Park set that had a lot of people talking when it was first unveiled.

Below is a list of all the new sets found so far and each has a link to view the product page in full.

There is still no catalogue available for the second half of 2016 so we don’t know when these sets will appear at retail.

Set News From Nuremberg Toy Fair

Nuremberg 2016 Thumb

While the London Toy Fair doesn’t allow photos, the Nuremberg Toy Fair does. That means that there are a heap of photos online showing off a heap of the sets coming in the second half of 2016. Unfortunately we weren’t in Nuremburg ourselves so we don’t have our own photos to share but to save you some time we have compiled some links to where you can see the sets in more detail.

First up is Promobricks – over on their Facebook photo stream they have a heap of photos from the show. You can check them out here.

The second site is zusammengebaut.com – they have some great coverage from the show with lots of great photos and videos.

There are plenty of sets to be excited about, but we’ve picked out three that stood out…

New Set News From London Toy Fair

London Toy Fair 2016

The London Toy Fair is on at the moment and all of the European based LEGO sites are checking out the sets that are going to be released in the second half of 2016. Unfortunately the Bricking Around budget doesn’t extend to having a London correspondent but we have done up a listing of the new sets that have been announced.

Of course we don’t want to take away from the hard work of those who are at the show so there are a full list of sources at the end of the this article. Those sites have descriptions from people who are at the event and seen the sets in person (there are no photos allowed at the London Toy Fair).

The full list of sets and the sources are below.

New Star Wars And City Sets In Latest Big W Catalogue

BigW 200x200

The latest Big W catalogue doesn’t really count as a sale – it’s more of a highlight of the fact that new sets are in store now.

The catalogue reveals the everyday price for a range of Star Wars and City sets. As we’ve come to expect from Big W these prices are all a little lower than the regular RRP. While the catalogue only features a few items there should be some other items from the January release in stores now too.

We mentioned that this isn’t really a sale, but there are two Friends sets reduced…

41097 Heartlake Hot Air Balloon $28.00 (RRP $44.99, RRP Discount $16.99 or 38%)

41093 Heartlake Hair Salon $25.00 (RRP $44.99, RRP Discount $19.99 or 44%)

Both of these are great prices, so stock may sell quickly.

You can check out the full list of items included in the catalogue below, or view the catalogue yourself here.
