The 2015 New York Toy Fair is starting this weekend and LEGO has released four press releases today about the company’s growth last year as well as some themes we can expect to see at the Toy Fair. According to one of the releases, there will be a whopping 313 sets displayed at the American International Toy Fair which is the largest collection displayed so far including LEGO Elves and LEGO Star Wars.
We pretty much know about everything that will be shown at the event but one thing that’s notable on the press release is LEGO finally acknowledging The Simpsons Series 2 Collectible Minifigures (71009) which will be released in May and the Halloween-themed Series 14 Collectible Minifigures in September. So far both waves have only been rumors including the leaked image of the Halloween Monster minifigures which have since been taken down. As usual, I would guess that the minifigures will not be shown there but the boxes will be shown.
As mentioned before, we will be there indirectly as Chad from Brick Fest Live will be sending us images and videos to upload throughout the event. Our coverage will be starting around 7am EST/4am PST on Saturday, February 14.
