Gallery of Hi-Res 2011 Set Pictures

Below are a few examples from each theme.  If you thought the Toy Fair 2011 pics look good, then of course these hi-res official photos look wayyyy better.

There is also a hint of more pics to come with this statement from Gizmodo: “There are a couple more secret models, but we will show those to you at a later date“. 

Hmm… I hope they don’t mean the Cars 2 range or the Spongebob sets that were not included in gallery…

You can get the full range of 2011 hi-res pics from Gizmodo’s write-up here.   Anyway for your convenience these link directly to the respective galleries:

LEGO City Hot Chase Mini Movie

Thanks to delta for sharing this video.

For City fans. 🙂 

Hey, I feel like a 5 yo too… 😀

LEGO In-Store Adverts & Animations

Thanks to someone from Toysrus Hong Kong, we have these in-store video ads and animations.  So instead of standing around to catch all the adverts in the store, you can now do so in the comfort of your home.  I suggest you find a quiet place, get a drink and get comfy before starting on the videos…  😉

I’ve included all the new 2011 ads as well as some of the 2010 ads and animation that I particularly liked (do watch them, these are the best of the dozens of clips I went thru).  I’ve not seen most of them before… maybe just not spending enough time in the store?  Anyway loads more in the TRU HK Youtube channel if you are interested, just do a search/filter for ‘LEGO’ among the 333 videos. (Great job TRU HK!!) 

Warning: You may experience slow loading time after the jump.  Too many deeplinked vids I guess but since I don’t believe in multiple posts on the same topic just to increase my post count…

More 2011 City Sets

Lightningtiger from EB shares pics of sets 3648-Police Chase and 3661-Bank & Money Transfer. 

I’m actually quite disappointed at 3661.  At 1st glance it reminds me of 6566-Bank.  And it looks to be a ‘stickered’ set as well.  What do you think?

2011 Police Sets Out in the USA

Brickset reports that the new Police sets are now available on TRU USA (link to Brickset news) – as predicted by some AFOLs that ‘2011 sets’ will start appearing before Thanksgiving in the USA.  In case you really haven’t seen them before, here they are:

7498 Police Station

7288 Police Truck

7279 Police Minifigure Collection

Like Huw, I’m not thrilled about the Police theme but I do like the new dog (hey, it has a printed face and I love printed faces).  So I think I may get the Police Station to add to my MOC, and the Minifig collection for the cash and the dog – provided they are on sale of course. 😉

Modular Police Station & Amazing Lego Street

This MOC by Johan_vd_Heuvel (Teddy) features great interiors. Really good reference for the Police HQ MOC I am still working on tho I don’t think I’ll be doing much interiors. 😛

What really caught my attention though is his Lego street. You don’t often see Lego creations that makes the Lego Modular series look lousy in comparison but I think Johan’s creations top those. Judge for yourself:
