Coming in 2017: The Future…

Over the last couple of weeks, official photos of many of 2017’s sets have come to light: Creator,  Lego® Technic (celebrating 40 Years), Elves, DC Superhero Girls, City, Disney, Marvel Super Heroes, Nexo Knights, Architecture, Star Wars, and LEGO Batman movie.  I have lost count of the number of reveals that have occurred.

If you don’t like spoilers, look away now.

There has been a steady reduction in the number of unknown unknowns, with an increase in the known knowns, and clarification as to the nature of the known unknowns.

Some of the my highlights in the reveals seen to date:

LEGO® City has 40% female minifigures in the sets revealed so far. [Great for girls and their families who are not fans of minidolls]

The LEGO® Creator Expert 10255 Modular Assembly Square has so many great new pieces.

LEGO® Friends is no longer restricted to the bright pastel palette, and some more traditional colours are coming into play in 41311 Heartlake Pizzeria.  There are 3 male minidolls, and 6 puppies to add to the collection in the sets revealed so far for 2017.friends

LEGO® DC Super Hero Girls will add a some additional heroism, and villianism(?) to our minidoll collections.

This year’s Creator Ocean Explorer 31045 has grown up into next year’s Technic Ocean Explorer 42064

Elves continues with Goblins, and Emily’s little sister Sophie. More great fantasy landscapes and transportation

LEGO® Ninjago sets seem to be a little darker this year… mainly in palette

The LEGO® BATMAN Movie will bankrupt many of us with great looking sets and TWENTY, yes I said 20 Collectable Minifigures to collect…

These are the things that have made ME look up and take notice. Many new sets have been previewed on other LEGO® News Websites lately. What has grabbed your attention?

And what other treats may there be to celebrate to 10th anniversary of ‘the really cool sets catering for AFOLs’ such as the first modular building sets, 10181 Eiffel Tower, 10182 Hobby Trains and of course 10179 Ultimate Collectors Millennium Falcon. I’m sure there is much left for us to see.

What are you looking forward to?

 

Play well

One thought on “Coming in 2017: The Future…

  1. Lots to like, certainly. The Elves airship is a cracker, and i’m looking forward to that new curlicue piece. I also like the look of the Architecture London set (#20134) – good looking and comes with 4 white flex tubing? Yes please! Speaking of white re-colours, nice to see white telescopes becoming more commonly available (10 in the micro Y-wing, #75162). I would be more excited about the Assembly Square modular too, but as i still haven’t got the Brick Bank, i don’t want to get too ahead of myself! 😉
