To celebrate Toy Fair, LEGO invited press representatives to a big event before the show even opened at the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center. Filled with rows and rows of brand new sets, the big reveal came in the form of the Saint Mary ship, based on the upcoming “Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales.” While the set was presented in in a cloudy box, the company also released some nice press photos to really show off its ghost ship. Captain Jack Sparrow and Captain Armando Salazar will also make their way into the Brickheadz line.
Speaking of Brickheadz, ten more takes on the buildable characters were also on display. Batman, Batgirl, Robin and Joker jump into the action in their “The LEGO Batman Movie” forms. Meanwhile, Hulk, Black Widow, Captain America and Iron Man will enter the fray based on films like “Captain America: Civil War.” Each box comes with around 100 pieces that you use to create the hero or villain.
For the second week in a row, “The LEGO Batman Movie” topped the box office charts and the company had plenty on display at the show for fans to get their hands on later this year. Huge sets include The Batwing, The Scuttler, The Batcave Break-In and The Ultimate Batmobile. That last one comes not only with a vehicle that can split in to three different parts, but also Flying Monkeys and the Wicked Witch of the West from “The Wizard of Oz!”
Other Bat-sets feature The Batmobile and villain-themed altercations like Scarecrow Fearful Face-Off, The Joker Balloon Escape, Mr. Freeze Ice Attack, Catwoman Catcycle Chase, Riddler Riddle Racer, Joker Notorious Lowrider, Killer Croc Tail-Gator, Clayface Splat Attack, Bane Toxic Truck Attack and Two-Face Double Demolition! A new wave of Batman-themed Minifigures will also hit later this year.
The Dark Knight might be dominating the box office right now, but expect a pair of Marvel features — “Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2” and “Spider-Man: Homecoming” — to do so in the spring and summer. LEGO revealed some sets from those films to get viewers excited. Our space-faring heroes will come together in sets like Ravager Attack, Ayesha’s Revenge and The Milano vs. The Abilisk while the Wall-Crawler jumps onto the scene in ATM Heist Battle and Beware the Vulture. Nothing was revealed, but LEGO also promised that they’d have “Thor: Ragnarok” products closer to the film’s November 3 release.
Additional Marvel-based sets include Iron Man: Detroit Steel Strikes, Hulk vs. Red Hulk — which comes with red and green She-Hulks — and Captain America Jet Pursuit complete with Ms. Marvel Minifigure! The Marvel Mighty Micros line of dueling characters in fun vehicles will also add Spider-Man Vs. Scorpion, Iron Man Vs. Thanos and Wolverine vs. Magneto to the race.
LEGO will also expand the Mighty Micros line across the aisle for DC sets like Superman vs. Bizarro, Batman vs. Killer Moth and Wonder Woman vs. Doomsday. The company will also have “Wonder Woman” and “Justice League” to reveal later on.
Different versions of the characters will also be available in the “DC Super Hero Girls” style. Smaller sets include Lashina Tank and Bumblebee Helicopter, moving up to larger ones in the form of Wonder Woman and Harley Quinn Dorms, Batgirl Batjet Chase, Harley Quinn to the Rescue and Batgirl Secret Bunker. This line also had three of the biggest, coolest sets with Lena Luthor Kryptonite Factory, Super Hero High School and Eclipso Dark Palace which comes with Wonder Woman and her Invisible Jet!
Star Wars fans have a lot to celebrate this year. Not only is it the 40th anniversary of “A New Hope,” but also the highly anticipated release of “The Last Jedi” on December 15. In addition to all that, there are also plenty of LEGO sets to look forward to ranging from the original films to the cartoons and into “Rogue One.” Of course, “Last Jedi” will also be covered at some point, but not just yet. First off, feast your eyes on the new Buildable Figures of Chirrut Imwe, Baze Malbus, Scarif Stormtrooper, Stormtrooper Commander and Scout Trooper with Speeder Bike.
Other “Rogue One”-inspired offerings include Imperial Trooper Battle Pack, Rebel Trooper Battle Pack, Y-Wing Starfighter and Battle on Scarif as well as the U-Wing, Y-Wing, TIE Striker and Krennic’s Imperial Shuttle from the Microfighters line.
If you’re looking back to “The Force Awakens” for building inspiration, sets like First Order Transport Speeder Battle Pack, Jakku Quadjumper and Rathtar Escape are for you.
The other films will also be represented in boxes called Bounty Hunter Speeder Bike Battle Pack, Yoda’s Jedi Starfighter, Duel on Naboo, Darth Vader Transformation and Republic Fighter Tank. The current animated shows also made their presence felt in the form of The Phantom from “Star Wars Rebels” and Tracker I and The Arrowhead as seen on “Star Wars: The Freemaker Adventures.”
The LEGO Ideas imprint, which allows for fan-created builds to be voted on by other fans, showed off two epic entries in the imprint: The Beatles Yellow Submarine including Minifigures of the band members each with their own accessories and and “Adventure Time” set complete with Finn, Jake, Princess Bubblegum, BMO, Marceline, Lady Rainicorn, Ice King and a penguin, probably Gunther.
Finally, fans of the toys-to-life adventure game “LEGO Dimensions” will be excited to hear that new additions will come in the form of the Sonic Level Pack, the “Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them” Story Pack, “The LEGO Batman Movie” Movie Story, Excalibur Batman Fun Pack and, most exciting for fans of over-the-top 80s TV, the “Knight Rider” Michael Knight Fun Pack!
