Finally made a trip out to my local Toys R Us and Target to check out there stock of the new LEGO 2011 sets. Toys R Us had a full lineup of them.
I absolutely love the new Kingdoms sets, which are very similar to the Medieval Market Village. I do have to wonder how many barns & windmills they will sell compared to the more castle-themed sets. Toys R Us had these, and many of the newer sets displayed in the front of the store:
Some of the new city sets, including the Harbor. I have the original this is based from, which came out in the late 1980’s, I believe.
A closer look at the Marina:
The Space Center seems like a scaled-down version of the shuttle sets I remember buying in the 1990’s. Not a fan of those huge molded plastic pieces used to makeup the rocket here:
Ah, Alien Conquest. These sets simply look incredible. The headquarters truck looks huge, there is something so retro about all of this. Somehow a combination of 1950’s alien theme, and 1970’s LEGO space colors and styling. I don’t usually pick up the LEGO space stuff, but I will likely make an exception here:
Ninjago continues to sell:
Collectible Minifigures Series 4 were plentifulL
Tons of train stuff. LEGO seems to really be embracing this – there are so many train sets in their current lineup, including this station:
The Public Transport set is destined to be a classic. Something about it is very Playmobil, there is a lot of realism to it:
The larger Atlantis set is really nice:
The Creator Lighthouse just hit stores.
Creator Log Cabin:
LEGO Harry Potter is back in stock after the holidays wiped out most stores. And of course, Pirates of the Caribbean is now in stock. These are some nice sets, and LEGO put a huge focus on creating tons of original minifigures for them:
I can’t believe Prince of Persia is still on the shelves. Who is buying these at full retail?
A pretty good sale on the At-At, I believe it’s $89.99 and the sale runs for nearly a month:
Funny to see Series 3 Collectible Minifigures still plentiful, even as Series 4 are on the shelves, and photos of Series 5 are all over the web.
Okay, moving over the Target – they had an end-cap display of Pirates of the Caribbean:
But very few other new sets. LEGO has an entire aisle on both sides at Target, so I was surprised to not see any new Alien Quest, Kingdoms, City, etc.
