I dunno. They have some charm to them, though the fact that the parts are overly specialized kinda bothers me.

Looks like the old arctic theme is getting a new release, which is awesome. Arctic and rock raiders are the two themes that I wish I had sets from (though thanks to bricklink, I'll be getting a chrome crusher shortly), and while the power miners were a little disappointing, I have high hopes for the new arctic sets.

Has anyone else seen this minifig? Should be out in stores soon if not now.

They made a Taskmaster minifig?  That's extremely awesome, but I'm surprised since he's sort of obscure.  I guess they did make a Deadpool one, so...

They've both been played up in the recent "Ultimate Spider-man" Cartoon.

I wonder if the ORANGE TRANSPARENT CHAINSAW will be making a return.

I would agree,but surely, that will drive down the value of the ORANGE TRANSPARENT CHAINSAW. Basic Economics.

Tons of NY toyfar coverage here: http://news.toyark.com/category/lego-toy-news

Personally, this thing is my new favorite: http://news.toyark.com/wp-content/uploa ... nts015.jpg

It's an official Warhead minifig AND a blade runner car, how cool is that?

It would appear there is a new dome piece on the top of that spider-thing. I have been eagerly awaiting the return of such a piece after the banishment of those cool insect eye parts.

The Mixel release looks incredibly cool. Lots of new eye pieces, and the second wave has minifig head eyeballs. Prepare for an army of cyclopses!

I think I should avoid this thread next year, because none of these sets (save the clone turbo tank mircofighter and some of the lego movie ones) have gotten released in my area yet, and the wait is driving me insane.

Can the gun aim upwards? Because on mine, it keeps flopping down and it's a bit annoying.

Just looked through the Lego Shop: Looks like Mixels, the Chima Spider and Rhino sets, as well as most of the Star Wars (as well as Castle, is that "new"?) is already up on their site to order. So all those releases that said "March" you can go ahead and order online from them looks like. Along with the Disney Princess Friends everyone at the show taking pictures seemed to think was "new".
