No General Release For Monkie Kid In 2020

In the new LEGO catalogue for the second half of 2020 there was one whole theme that seemed to be missing – Monkie Kid.

I decided to get in touch with LEGO Australia to see if there was a particular reason for that. It turns out that there is… Monkie Kid will not have a regular retail release in 2020.

What does this mean? If you want to get some of the Monkie Kid sets you are going to need to head to LEGO.com directly [affiliate link] or head in to your local LEGO Certified store. It also means that there isn’t much chance of getting these sets at a discount.

I was informed that currently there are no set plans for 2021, so future waves may or may not be released. Also it’s possible that plans can change and somebody will be stocking Monkie Kid in the future, but the current plan is definitely no general release.

All The Interesting Stuff From The 2HY Catalogue

Release Schedule For The Second Half of 2019

2hy_2019-cover

The new LEGO catalogue is out now online, which means we now have the full retail release schedule for the second half of the year.

Edit: For some reason the catalogue is no longer online, but you can find a PDF copy here. Warning – It’s a 72MB PDF file.

The catalogue features the sets that will be widely available. Retailer exclusives and recently announced sets are not included.

I’ve done my best to get pricing and a thumbnail of what I can but there are a few of these sets not yet up on LEGO’s servers.

I suggest checking out the catalogue for yourself as well as the full list at the end of this post.

There’s no look at Star Wars sets just a teaser that new products will launch in October.

We also get our first look at a Technic set using the new Bluetooth components.

The catalogue also has more details about the Hidden Side theme.

Retail Release Schedule For The First Half of 2019

au-1hy-catalogue-cover-thumb

It’s become somewhat of a New Years tradition that I spend ages hunting down the newest retail catalogue so that I can share with you all of the details on what sets are released when.

Well here it is – the release schedule for the first half of 2019. These are all the sets coming to general retail.

Firstly there are a few observations from the catalogue…

The LEGO Movie 2 sets coming in March

Yes, they are available online now but the retail release is delayed just like the film itself. You won’t be seeing any of the sets in-store until at the very least late February.

No Benny?!

Benny’s Space Squad is probably one of the most highly anticipated sets of 2019, and it’s nowhere to be seen in the catalogue. This means that it’s going to be some sort of retailer exclusive. Unfortunately I probably won’t be able to find out who that set is going to until February.

First look at The LEGO Movie 2 Minifigure series

tlm2-cmf-series-teaser

This new Minifigure Series looks great and will be available to buy from February. There certainly doesn’t appear to be any sort of chase figure in this series which is great. I love the classic Wizard of Oz characters.

No Overwatch

A few people have been asking about the retail release of the Overwatch sets and they are nowhere to be seen in the catalogue. This may mean they are a retailer exclusive but I haven’t heard anything about that at this stage.

Star Wars 20th Anniversary sets coming soon

star-wars-20-teaser-catalogue

No pictures yet, but a tease for new sets coming in April to celebrate the 20th anniversary of LEGO Star Wars

You’ll find the full release schedule information below.

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.

Release Schedule For First Half of 2018

CATALOGUE 1HY2018 Cover Thumb

It’s the new year, which means that I have been constantly checking the LEGO 3D Catalogue app hoping that the new catalogue for the first half of 2018 had been released. Sure enough while checking today I got exactly what I was after.

I have gone through the catalogue and compiled an extensive list of the release schedule for every set featured in the catalogue. You can find that full list at the end of the article. It’s over 130 sets so I have made it sortable and searchable for you. You can search by month, set number or a specific theme.

Hopefully the sets that you are interested in aren’t too far off. Note that these sets are available online from LEGO if you are impatient.

The catalogue also features some additional information about themes that haven’t had their sets announced yet…

LEGO is going all out with the Jurassic World Fallen Kingdom sets – there will be Duplo, Juniors and regular sets all released related to the movie all in April.

CATALOGUE 1HY2018 Jurassic World Duplo

CATALOGUE 1HY2018 Jurassic World Juniors

CATALOGUE 1HY2018 Jurassic World Regular

With the Han Solo film out this year the tie-in sets will also be released in April, specifically April 13th. Hopefully we’ll see these before then.

CATALOGUE 1HY2018 Solo

Speed Champions fans will be pleased to see that there are more sets coming in March.

March is also the month for Avengers Infinity War sets.

The catalogue also confirms a new series of Minifigures will be released in April to follow on from the Batman Movie series 2 minifigures.

Release Schedule For Second Half of 2017

2HY 2017 Catalogue Cover

Over the weekend the LEGO Catalogue app on my phone was updated to feature the new catalogue for the second half of the year. Unfortunately I haven’t been able to find a PDF version online but I have gone through page by page to compile a list of all the release details.

I have also included the June stuff, even though it should already be in stores. While some of the City sets showed up for the Toy Sales, the full range should be released this month, along with the coast guard sets. The new LEGO Batman Movie sets should also be appearing soon.

The only hint of The Last Jedi sets is a page saying they will be revealed in September. There are also details of the three Justice League sets coming out in August.

If there is a set not in the list below that likely means that it is a store exclusive or not coming to Australian retail. The catalogue is for the general release sets.

You can view the full list of 90 sets below. The list is searchable and sortable if there is a particular set that you are looking for.

Release Schedule For The First Half of 2017

1HY 2017 Catalogue Front Small

It’s a new year, which means a whole heap of new LEGO sets. Any LEGO fan will already know that while new sets show up online January 1st, they are released to stores in batches. The LEGO Retail catalogue is always how we know what sets are hitting stores when. You can’t view the catalogue online yet but it is available via the LEGO Catalogue app on iOS or Android.

Most of the sets we already knew about but there is a teaser promising Guardians of the Galaxy 2 sets in March.

I’ve gone through the catalogue in detail and added the release month to my database of set information. Below you’ll find a list of just under 150 sets and when you can expect to see them on store shelves. There are a few sets with no images or pricing on the LEGO site so there are a few gaps in the data. I regularly update my set database so as soon as I know those prices I will update accordingly.

For those who can’t see the table below here is a quick guide;

  • Disney Moana – January
  • Friends – January
  • City – January
  • Nexo Knights – January
  • Batman Collectable Minifigures – January
  • Star Wars – January
  • Classic – February
  • Duplo – February
  • Creator – February
  • DC Super Hero Girls – February
  • Ninjago – February
  • The LEGO Batman Movie – February
  • Disney Other – March
  • Elves – March
  • Technic – March
  • DC Comics Super Heroes – March
  • Marvel Super Heroes – March

Release Schedule For First Half Of 2016

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 Dimensions Release Schedule

We have received some information from Warner Bros games that, depending on your opinion of LEGO Dimensions, is either going to be great news or terrible news.

Rather than flooding the market on day one, the release of the various LEGO Dimensions packs is being spread out over 5 waves. With so many different packs announced there was some concern that picking up everything was just not going to be feasible – at least by spreading it out there is more opportunity for kids to save up their pocket money or add packs to their Christmas wish list.
LEGO Dimensions LOGO Small
The bad news may come in for those LEGO fans interested in the packs as LEGO products more so than gaming products – some of the more highly anticipated sets won’t be released until early 2016. For example the Slimer pack won’t be available until May next year. That’s a long wait for those looking to grab a Slimer to go with their Ecto-1.

We have included the image with this release schedule below. It’s quite large so click on it for a readable version. We’ve also included a text breakdown below.
