Tom and Jason did an excellent coverage of what is hot at the LEGO booth at the New York Toy Fair. Now that the 2016 Toy Fair comes to an end, let’s look back at the highlights of what LEGO has in store for this year. Here’s a round up of what we gathered in the NYTF.

One of the most anticipated LEGO sets revealed at the NYTF is the UCS Assault on Hoth (75098). Excitement was steadily building up to the day LEGO unveiled its latest Star Wars-based Ultimate Collectors Series. As it turned out, there were some mixed reactions about this ranging from sheer joy, to downright skepticism on what LEGO is actually offering with its newest UCS. This informative diagram is circulating a lot within Lego Reddit circles. Though we don’t know exactly to whom the credit belongs to for this photo, we’re sure that s/he has a very interesting take on what LEGO came up with in its Assault on Hoth UCS. Just send us some leads if you happen to know the source of this.

With that being said, let take a look on what LEGO has revealed so far during the 2016 NYTF. Tom Baker did an excellent overview of these new LEGO sets, with Jason and Stephen covering the heat of the action at NY.

LEGO Maze tn_omlYquW_jpg

LEGO Maze is on its way! The upcoming Ideas based approved project was hinted by the brick giant on its Facebook page announcing its release sometime on April. Coded as 21305 LEGO Maze, this cool contraption is the brainchild of Jason (who goes by the name JK Brickworks via Flickr) and comes in 769 pieces.

Its official entry as a LEGO based Idea proposal was originally named as “Labyrinth Marble Maze”. It’s an interactive maze build where the object of the game is to simply ensure that the ball goes from point A to point B. Of course, it may sound simple as it may look. With mazes that are highly customizable and interchangeable, players have unlimited options on how they want their labyrinths to be challenging. According to Jason, “Having an interchangeable maze system means you can customize the maze as you see fit, build additional mazes, and make them as simple or challenging as you want. Check out these pictures of Jason’s customized labyrinths.”

The mechanics of the game is fairly simple. Using a set of LEGO Technic axles and liftarms, players can control the movement of the ball inside the maze. It has a pretty impressive, smooth and accurate control over the movement of the board.

LEGO has not revealed yet on how the LEGO Maze (21305) will actually look and work. For sure they’ll be throwing in some modifications of their won and some probable adjustments in the gameplay. Perhaps they’ll be throwing in some limited edition minifigs. We’ll see. However, what we’re sure of is the fact that the basic gameplay will still be the same. We’ll be updating you soon on the LEGO Maze but for the meantime, check out this video demonstration by Jason on how his Labyrinth works.

Winter Village Train Coming Later This Year?

Yesterday, Eurobricks user nesquick posted that the 2016 Winter Village set will be a Holiday Train.



Nesquik has been a pretty reliable source in the past. A Winter Village train is something we have mentioned a number of times in our videos and would be a great followup to the disastrous re-release of the Winter Top Shop (10249).



LEGO Star Wars Rogue One Set Numbers Surface

I’m not really sure what the point really is when this happens, but we’ll post it because I’m sure some of you are interested. LEGO set numbers have surfaced for the LEGO Star Wars: Rogue One film. Just set numbers…no names or any further details. Sets will be released in October.

Here you go:


One thing to note, these three will be build-able figures.
