In a time that the end of the year knock the door, the new 2019 are gradually being unveiled. Let’s have a look at the new Star Wars, Ninjago and Tehcnic sets , even that the set list, looking to the range, is far away from being completed.
As far as I can see, overall, this new wave of Lego sets didn’t excite me too much with the exception of a couple of them, namely the Technic Chevrolet Corvette (42093) and the Ninjago Jay Storm Fighter (70668) which are definitely very good.
Some of the new 2019 Lego sets have finally been unveiled and according to the pictures that are surfing in the net, some of them are already available on shelves. For now it is possible to have a look to some city and creator sets, which, with the exception of one or two, I must say didn’t excite me at all.
City show the traditional new round of Fire sets as well as some new great vehicles boxes , with the biggest until the moment, the Downtown Fire Brigade (60126) to ensure all the attention . In terms of creator nothing to much appealing, just five 3*1 sets but I’m sure than soon well some much more not only from these themes but also from the rest.
Lego has just unveiled a new Ideas set, totally different from everything, the Pop Up Book. This new concept is considerably big, eight hundred and fifty nine pieced and features a buildable book with two scenarios that includes four mini-figures (Little Red Riding Hood, Grandmother, the Wolf, and the Giant), a micro-figure and some nice details to enjoy.
The base of those scenarios are two old fairy tales: Little Red Riding Hood and Jack and the Beanstalk, whose respective parts can be built separately and then attached to the book, one at a time. Personally, it’s not my concept of Lego, but I must say that the book, when closed, looks absolutely beautiful.
What a great surprise in this afternoon! Lego has just unveiled the new Creator Expert Set, the Vestas Wind Turbine. And it’s not just another awesome set. It is also the first Lego set that presents new “plant to plant” elements which according to Lego are made of plant based plastic which the source is sugarcane.
The set itself has around eight hundred pieces and features a new turbine with one meter tall, a nice and cozy house with a big patio in the front and plenty of rocks and vegetation in the back, a white van, three mini-figures with the usual bunch of accessories and last but not least the always pleasant power functions kit to give some movement to the set.
Its release date was already known for a while and finally, here we go for the new Creator Expert Set: the Winter Village Fire Station, a seasonal set with exactly one thousand and hundred and sixty six pieces, considerably more than in other years, but with plenty of great details to enjoy!
The box contains a beautiful vintage building with two distinct floors and a big red door, a fire truck that keeps the same but usual seasonal trend, with some nice but old details, a nice iced fountain , a Christmas tree, a Dalmatian and seven mini-figures (four fire-men, a lady with a baby, the ice hockey boy and the grey statue in the lake).
