The Nuremberg Toy Fair – known as Spielwarenmesse – recently took place. The event was the first official look at sets being released in the second half of 2017. While I couldn’t attend in person, the good people at Promo Bricks have allowed other LEGO sites to share their pictures from the event. Click on any image for a larger version.

The Creator lineup for the second half of the year looks great. I’m a big fan of space sets so I can’t wait to see more of 31066 Space Shuttle. 31070 Turbo Track Racer looks great too.
There is also a nice lineup of Creator Houses; the small 31067 Poolside Holiday, medium sized 31068 Modern Home and the largest 31069 Family Villa.
The City sets for the second half of 2017 will feature two sub-themes, as well as some generic City themed sets.
LEGO are following up the success of Fun At The Park with Fun At The Beach. Hopefully these minifigure heavy sets continue, as I’m a big fan. There is also a new Bus Station set with plenty of minifigures.
The second sub-theme is something a bit different – Jungle. The sets feature a range of vehicles, and the largest set also includes a crashed plane. Being LEGO I’m assuming everybody survived the plane crash and are just waiting around for rescue. The LEGO City sub-themes that take place away from the City are always interesting.
A few Technic sets were on display, picture below is 42070 6×6 All Terrain Tow Truck and 42069 Extreme Adventure. There is also 42068 Fire Rescue Vehicle, but I was unable to find a clear picture of that.
While there were no actual pictures of the sets, LEGO did reveal that there would be a series of Cars 3 Juniors sets. The lineup appears to include 8 different sets.
There was plenty that was shown as either blank boxes or just not shown at all. There are no pictures of The Last Jedi sets (unsurprisingly) and a lot of the Marvel/DC sets are yet to be unveiled. We do have a picture of the Guardians of The Galaxy vol 2 sets.
It has also been revealed that the Friends sets for the second half of the year will be snow themed.
