Summer 2011 LEGO Ninjago Official Pictures

Here are pictures of the upcoming LEGO Ninjago although there are some pictures still marked with confidential and prelim stamp especially the spinner set but anyway, the picture below are clean and are able to be posted over here.

#2506 Skeleton Monster Truck

#2507 Fire Temple

#2508 Blacksmith's Shop

#2509 Earth Dragon

#2254 Mountain Shrine

There are some changes in Mountain Shrine as the skeleton minifigs was replaced with some skeleton dummy. I suppose this shrine is for training and for some set I think the amount of minifigures included are great.

Summer LEGO Ninjago 2011 Images

This is somewhat a weird theme where a gang of good ninja fighting a modernized evil army of skeletons. There sure is some interesting pieces in the upcoming set which is the dragon sword (I suppose). Images below are taken from FBTB's Flickr stream:

515 pieces
Another alternative for you to get Garmadon which I think is pricey as well. So the best alternative to get Garmadon is through the spinner set and the Skeleton Monster Truck looks good actually, is not that bad looking.

1174 pieces
The design of the temple sure do have some Asian taste and indeed is very nice. But why they add a dragon into the set which is not that necessary to add one.

189 pieces
No idea what this blacksmith's shop have for the both factions to fight for it. I do see some weapon additional weapons from the box art.

227 pieces
I'm not sure if this have the look of a dragon but it sure seems like a wild beast. But good thing it is siding the good guys. It sure have nice parts to be collect especially the modified slope part.

169 pieces
I think those hanging around are some traps as I never see such thing hanging in the shrine. In this set you get new weapon and a spinner which I think is worth getting it.
As for the spinner set, here's the link to the pictures. They do have nice spinner.

LEGO Creator 2011 Pictures

Here are the pictures two Creator sets which will release August this year. I do like their idea to release more house-related set like Log Cabin and Lighthouse while it is normal to see more cars. Anyway, below are the pictures of the both set from FBTB's Flickr:

554 pieces
The design of the Cool Cruiser really are nice and cool of course. I guess these cool cars are always in white, red and yellow color are mainly in reality they are mostly in this color.

518 pieces
The look of the lighthouse is amazing and of course it do look like one of the lighthouse. Maybe a little spacious will be better.

Name of sets are link to more pictures.

LEGO Harry Potter 2011

There are too many pictures coming at one time but I do not have that much time to post them all here. As a result, news here will be little bit slow. Below are pictures of the LEGO Harry Potter set that due to release this year from FBTB's Flickr:

64 pieces
The functions is about the same as Dobby Release where it send Lucius flying which now is to send Harry off from where he is standing. But is an improve version where we don't have a long stick stuck out from the back.

257 pieces
Good set to get purple parts and some nice new minifigs although many says the design of the bus is not as good as compare to the one of previous release.

466 pieces
I as a minifigs lover sure would gonna say that this is a good set, as I like the minifigs while for others maybe is another set to complement with your Hogwarts Castle collection.

Name of the set are links to pictures set.

LEGO Spongebob 2011

So there will be two SpongeBob sets release this year which is a good news for SpongeBob fans but some of AFOL just don't like the theme. Anyway, below are pictures taken from FBTB's Flickr:

95 pieces

169 pieces

The minifigs sure are attractive to me but the set looks a bit weird and seems to have not much of a brick. Minifigs collector might want to get them.

LEGO CITY 2011 Pictures

They sure release the police force early and I do expect them to release the space team early too but it turns out that I'm wrong as they will be release this August. Below are pictures of the space theme taken from FBTB's Flickr gallery, (I suppose this is the safest post):
37 pieces
165 pieces

231 pieces

494 pieces

I think this is not something new and I suppose everyone have seen them as there are already official pictures surfacing in the internet. While on the other hand, here's something which is quite new, although there is a leak from the retailer's catalog:

34 pieces
Back to water again and this one might be useful especially when you have Coast Guard team in your collection. 

64 pieces
The design of the fishing boat looks great but they are fishing for shark and I suppose this ship can float on water. Kids might love them.

254 pieces
They seems to like to have transporter for all the sets, but it looks good as well and very useful for boat lover and this is how the boat are transported to the sea.

294 pieces
I think this set is the best among all the set that will be release. It's like a reissue of Paradisa. This will be a useful set to add into collection as it do add some new amenities into your city especially to those newbies that start not long ago.

551 pieces
Boring, is the same thing we get a few years ago just a little modification on the harbor and the ship itself. I wonder if they are out of idea or the previous harbor sells very well.

Name of sets are link to the photo set of respective set that contains more picture and hi-res picture.
