American International Toy Fair Starts Soon

The American International Toy Fair (AIT) starts this Sunday in New York. I just received a copy of the PR announcement that was sent out by LEGO in advance of the event.

Much of the announcement is no news, but there were a few elements that caught my eye...
  • '...Collectors will rejoice over 48 never-before-seen LEGO Minifigures, each sold separately in unmarked packaging ($2.99 each).' - So could we be getting a look at Series 6 Collectible Minifigures, or are they referring to Series 3 (which we've seen)?
  • 'Building adventure returns to Hogwarts™ with best-selling LEGO HARRY POTTER™ as favorite characters meet three more constructible locations, available in June ($11.99 - $49.99), to support the final film's premiere.' - We've seen shots of the Hogwarts set, but it looks like there are going to be two more as well.
  • 'LEGO SpongeBob SquarePants™ is back with wacky new building adventures from two Bikini Bottom stories – HEROIC HEROES OF THE DEEP and GLOVE WORLD  – available in August ($14.99 and $19.99).' - I've seen images of the SpongeBob sets recently, but the pics were confidential.
  • '[Re: LEGO Ninjago]...Five more building sets ($19.99 - $119.99) and eight collectible spinner sets ($9.99 each) will launch later in the year.' - I'm guessing that LEGO Ninjago has turned out to be a hit.
The festivities will start on Sunday with the LEGO Collector Party (remember the flier?) We'll just have to keep our eyes and ears open...


  1. My friend Andrew (Black Six) will be there. He always posts his coverage on BZPower.


  2. ONce again, (I said this on Eurobricks too), Am I the only one that is surprised/overjoyed that the new HP sets are coming out in June instead of August?!?!?!
