Some thoughts on the 2011 sets:

– I honestly feel quite disappointed that the rumoured girls theme is not available.  Having seen the trade catalogue, I can verify that it’s not in the pages that were not scanned.  Any chance of a Winter release? 😦

– But it looks to be another good year, especially for Star Wars fans (loads of new minifigs and reproduced OT sets) and Harry Potter fans (3 more sets, yippee!). 

Creator is starting to look interesting too, the Lighthouse Island looks really good and it seems to be a trend that Creator sets now come with minifigs, blurring the line between Creator & City.

– Those who want to renact minifig abduction fantasies can now do so with the new Alien Conquest theme.  Again, is it meant to draw City fans into this theme?

– I wasn’t thrilled with the little Blacksmith set in Kingdoms, but there is another Blacksmith in the NinjaGo theme that looks better.  Interesting that so many of the NinjaGo theme sets are for limited time release – I’m guessing TLG thinks that limited releases helps to sell sets?

New 2011 Kingdoms Sets Confirmed!

Update on 24 Dec: Decided to remove the pic,  but the links still work.

Yeah with exclamation marks cos the sets look awesome.  The Medieval Windmill set rumour is true – Mill Village Raid looks amazing!

6918 Blacksmith Attack
7187 Escape from Dragon’s Prison
7188 King’s Carriage Ambush
7189 Mill Village Raid

However can we stand waiting till July (or later?). 😦

Thanks to Clouette from EB (Link to EB POST & FLICKR PICS)

I’ll leave the pic here as long as I can…

News of 2011 City Harbour and medieval windmill sets

Ferdik from EB shared some news of new 2011 themes and sets. The medieval windmill sounds great.

Source: http://www.eurobricks.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=45045&st=255

Harbour
* Lighthouse – with some water and a minifig. Quite small and look marvelous!

*City Harbor – Like the old one but smaller, the freight ship got shorter hull. Looking good.

*Marina – a litte shop, a surfbaord and and one or two small civilan boats. Not many parts, shop look more like a backdrop.

* Boat transport – Great looking truck with “new” bus front window. A yacht on the trailer. Great!

Not City but could appeal to city fans.
* Creator House. New white house, red roof. Quite boring architecture. The garden got a little slope (brickbuilt) and the house got stairs to the front door. Also including a small garage with a car. Minifig included.

Kingdom. A medieval windmill! New paint on animals. Dots on grey horse and on white pigs. Great Looking!
