Here’s Another 2019 LEGO City Firefighter Set – The Fire Plane (60217)

Over the past week we have covered the release of the first full images of so many LEGO sets that are officially coming out throughout the beginning of the coming year. Among those lines is LEGO City, which boasted an impressive number of upcoming sets, themed around firefighting and police. While the batch updates of 2019 LEGO City sets seem over and done with, individual sets are still being presented, such as this impressive firefighting set featuring the impressive LEGO City Fire Plane (60217). Listed by Toys R Us  Canada, the Fire Plane is a shout out to those extreme machines that are deployed to fight forest fires in national parks.

The Fire Plane (60217) evokes the “water-bomber” firefighting aircraft, amphibious planes that can land on a body of water, fill up its internal tanks, then fly over a large blaze to dump the water onto the fire (represented by transparent dome pieces).

Also included in the set is an all-terrain buggy with an all new 3-stud shooter. As for what these vehicles will be trying to put out, the set includes two trees of varying sizes (with a resident skunk), dotted with these awesome “fire pieces” found on the other LEGO City firefighting sets.

The LEGO City Fire Plane (60217) also includes three minifigures: an aircraft pilot, buggy driver, and an on-foot forest fireman. Here’s the set’s product description as mentioned by TRU Canada.

More Police and Firefighting 2019 LEGO City Sets Revealed

If you’ve been keeping pace with our updates on what LEGO sets are scheduled to officially come out in 2019 (or unofficially, be already available in toy retailers from, say, Canada), then you’ll know that many of the upcoming 2019 LEGO City sets have common themes: action and adventure, judging from the various firefighting and police operation sets in the previews.

As it turns out, the action-packed and adventurous LEGO City sets for next year are just getting warmed up.

2019 LEGO City Official Images Now Up

Following the release of a good number of 2019 LEGO Creator official set images, we now have crisp, set images for the 2019 LEGO City scheduled to arrive this December. Since spotted at the store shelves of Mastermind Toys in Canada, last week, early rumors are now confirmed that the first wave of 2019 LEGO City sets will follow the usual Police and Firefighter themes that LEGO has released before.

Though the LEGO City theme is beginning to be a bit redundant having the same old themes being released again, one couldn’t help but notice how these sets evolve throughout the years particularly with the inclusion of new pieces and building techniques. Somehow, LEGO managed to release new sets that are based on old themes, and still offer a new and exciting look given their new elements and designs. I’m looking forward to the Downtown Fire Brigade (60216) which is not featured here since there are no official images of this set as of this posting; the Snow Groomer (60222), and the Harvester Transport (60223). These sets include several interesting pieces like the rehashed light bricks and the clever use of Nexo Knights shield pieces, to name a few.

These new 2019 LEGO City sets are expected to be available in LEGO Stores and at shop.LEGO.com before the year ends.

 

Jet Patrol (60206)
 
Drone Chase (60207)

Barbecue Burn Out (60212)

2019 LEGO Creator Official Images Released

A few days ago, we reported on how the first wave of 2019 LEGO Creator sets was spotted in a Mastermind Toy Store in Canada. It was immediately noticeable that LEGO is continuing its line of 3-in-1 Creator sets, ranging from vehicles, a boat and a sea creature can transform to a shark, angler fish, and a giant squid.

I’m particularly interested with the Deep Sea Creatures, Underwater Robot, and Riverside Houseboat so I hope to grab these sets as soon as they are available. These new 2019 LEGO Creator sets are slated to be released before the year ends, so I guess I better save up for the holidays. Thanks to Candid Bricks for the tip.

New 2019 LEGO Architecture Sets Listed in Austrian Online Retailer

As we approach the final leg of 2018, it looks like LEGO and its retailers are giving us a sneak peek on how the brick landscape will look like in 2019. In this case, the latest reveals are now coming from the 2019 LEGO Architecture line where we are given a glimpse of the initial sets to be offered next year, particularly from the Skylines subtheme.

If you recall, one of the most recent LEGO Architecture Skyline set release this year is the necessarily delayed Las Vegas (21047). The delays due to the necessary redesigns for the LEGO Architecture Las Vegas are understandable, and hopefully, LEGO is now back in track with its release schedules as we can now see from an early listing from an online Austrian retailer.

Austrian online marketplace Alternate.at has put listings on upcoming LEGO Architecture sets for tagged as LEGO Architecture San Francisco (21043) and Paris (21044). No images were provided but they did indicate the number of pieces, product description and the set price of €49.99 for both of them. Here’s a brief description of these sets as published by Alternate and posted here via Google Translate.

LEGO Architecture Paris (21044)
