The 2013 New York Toy Fair has kicked off and YourCreativeFriends has sent us some videos and images from various LEGO themes such as Castle, City, Legends of Chima, Lord of the Rings, Star Wars, and The Lone Ranger. YCF notes that the Marvel and DC Universe sets were strictly off-limits to any photography. Attendees to the LEGO VIP Collector’s Event received a couple of gifts including a Yoda minifigure standing on the sidewalk wearing a white “NY I Love” sweater. The other gift was a carded Darth Vader minifigure wearing a medal from the The Empire Strikes Out animated show. Check out all of YourCreativeFriends’ videos to see which set(s) you might be wanting to pick up later this year.

Groove Bricks has revealed the lineup for the return of the LEGO Castle theme. There are no details of the sets as of yet but we’re pretty excited about the lineup for this wave.

LEGO Castle Returns In 2013?

With only a few Kingdoms sets released in the last two years, fans of the Castle theme weren’t satisfied over the lack of medieval sets despite the release of the Lord of the Rings sets. The wait for new Castle sets may be over in 2013 because over on, they have listed 5 “new” Castle sets that have an expected release date of August 1, 2013. The same sets are also listed under the “Legends” category, which are sets that are re-released due to it being very popular many years after their initial run. There’s no details about the sets but there’s speculation that the upcoming Castle sets could be a re-release of the older sets or a release with updated pieces. This is definitely unexpected news and we’ll be waiting to hear more about them.
