Red treads? Yummie.

The gold/green dragon and the mecha thing also look very good.

That set with the insect minifig and the three-story building looks perfect. Me want.

Flaming green sword?

Thoros of Myr. I wonder what other ASoIaF surprises they have hidden away.

Yeah, Zahru posted them first, but this dude's flickr has more pics of the 2013 Ninjago, Hero Factory, and City sets, as well as some Hobbit sets.

I noticed that there is now a new wheelbarrow piece that is coming, as well as a dalmatian dog.

Garmatron and Gold Dragon are must haves, right next to Goblin king and WAAAARGHS.

That wheelbarrow has been in a few sets already, but that dalmatian does look cool. Hopefully, we'll see it in some smaller sets.

About the TMNT line: Why on Earth would they make new moulds for the heads? I don't see why the turtle heads are different enough to warrant a new mould, especially since it cuts down on versatility so much. The Shellraiser also looks like shit to me, but I may get it on sale just for the olive green and the graffiti stickers.

I'm not even going to bother with TMNT set. Sure there might be some good parts, but nothing I can't scavenge from Bricklink. Legends of Chima will probably be the same, judging from the very slight preliminary images I've seen of the line thus far.

Lego TMNT? I think I finally found an actual Lego set that I want to buy.

Just saw photos of the new Hobbit sets... all are MUST HAVES!

Can't find images of Chima and Galaxy Patrol. The GP stuff SOUNDS cool but was it executed well or just a cool name? Just saw some images of packaging for Chima. Anyone got links to show good photos of this stuff? They must have some good data to support Chima being a success because they are releasing a ton of them compared to say GP or TMNT sets.

TMNT looks OK. I'm sure I'll have a few sets.

Oh and Monster Fighets already discontinued in 2013 !? :wtc:

Yeah, Monster Fighters never really seemed like it was going anywhere. They used all the classic movie monsters, so there was just nothing left. It's not the first theme to be like that, either (Arctic and Pharaoh's Quest come to mind).

Also, I just read somewhere that there will be a Friends set called Football Training with Stephanie. Football. Goddamn football. I would love to go on a rant about this right now, both about the fact that sports are a huge gap in Lego's line-up, and that they're really making an effort to make this more than just a traditional girls' theme. This makes me happy.

Well, the set list was off of Brickset. I don't know where they're located, so it very well could be. Even so, Lego's making a pretty big push, considering all of the big sports leagues are men's leagues.

Two more TMNT sets revealed. That motorcycle thing actually looks neat, and the fish guy isn't bad either...
