There is some news coming out of Dutch retailer Speelgoedn1.nl of some new LEGO sets coming out later this year. The first set is the MINI Cooper MK VII (10242) which we teased about last year. Some details of the set is that it is green and white with racing stripes. The roof is removable and you can see a beige interior with details such as the gearbox and handbrake. The site also mentions that there are also fog lamps. The MINI Cooper is the third vehicle set that is not tied into a particular theme following the Volkswagen Beetle (10187) and the Volkswagen T1 Camper Van (10220). It is possible that the MINI Cooper will be available on May 15th as the early VIP exclusive set.

The next set that is mentioned to be released this year is Santa’s Workshop (10245). LEGO will be continuing the Seasonal theme again to add to your Winter Village. This set will have six minifigures: Santa, Mrs. Claus, and four elves.
