Being planned to be on stores next April, finally we can have a deep look at the first official pictures about all the sets of this first wave of the Lone Ranger Theme. Despite some of its details are already known, most of all, thanks to the last Toy Fair event, it is always great to see some new pictures and with a better resolution of the new sets.
As it concerns with my expectations, the Colby City showdown looks a good set to add a couple of new and different building to my city and the Constitution Train looks definitely a very accurate machine. What a pity that it’s not powered!

All of them are expected to be on stores next May, and according to the pictures the expectation will be huge. There are all kinds of sets sizes, the smallest has a price around the fifteen dollars and the biggest (the train chase) around the hundred.
Let’s have a quick look to all of them, Continue reading
