The Fire Brigade (set # 10197) has a furnished interior but is unusual in that it only has two floors instead of the usual three. This is due to the first floor having raised ceilings to allow for the entrance of the fire truck. The top floor is superbly decorated with a small kitchen and recreational area including a couch and ping-pong table for the firefighters! The fire truck has some wonderful vintage details and the bell and water barrel on the roof and American flag on the front really add to its overall charm.
The “fiber optics” in this this Technic kit are actually clear plastic tubes that connect to a battery-operated LED-light pack. These specialized parts cost more to produce than the entire set was being sold for.
One more themed set before we finish up our list, and what would we be without mentioning one of the newest Lego sets out, celebrating the new Pirates of the Caribbean movie, Dead Men Tell No Tales. While previous Pirates sets have focused on the set pieces from their respective movies, Lego’s flagship (pun intended) set for this year’s release is one of the best we’ve seen yet. Silent Mary is the name of one of the newest ships from the film, and Lego have gone above and beyond in recreating this destructible, decaying set. The entire piece comes with eight minifigures, two ghost sharks (as seen prominently in the trailers for the film), and a rowboat used in the film by Jack Sparrow and his two new friends, Henry and Carina. From the cannons to the three masts of the ship, it’s an excellent build, measuring in at 26 inches long and 18 inches high, and including nearly 2,300 pieces for fun building excitement. We’re big fans of the appearances of masts and the wrecked sales, so if you’re a Pirates fan—or you love ships—you’re sure to have fun building this massive set.
I’ve just asked Lego Direct about it, while on the phone to them placing an order, and I spoke to a most apologetic man, who said that he had no idea when sets were retired, but Exclusives were normally 3 years and normal sets 2. I don’t know if you just got lucky with who you spoke to on the phone @winter_zombie, or maybe they were wildly speculating. He said the Death Star had been around for ages and was still going strong which would imply that he hasn’t heard of it going anytime soon. I have to admit I was hoping that the DS and EN would be included in the sale, but no luck…
Personally I don’t care for the Emporium. It is big, and looks fine on the outside, but it is too empty inside. The more recent modulars are a lot more interesting. Plus, the Emporium is a corner building, so unless you get at least one other one with it, it wouldn’t look right. If you can only get one modular, get the Parisian. It is a very sweet set both inside and out, looks good from three sides, and is perfectly fine as a display piece all by itself. And you will have several more years to buy it. 😉

Another great entry in the Lego Star Wars series, the Death Star set promises to be just as much an exercise in nostalgia as in patience and puzzle-solving. Constructing the 16″x16″ round orb of doom will take plenty of weeks, with over 4,000 pieces to construct and assemble as you build not just the outer shell protecting an entire planet-destroying laser, but also the interior, complete with plenty of Lego figurines and small details familiar to the star Wars super-fans inside of all of us. With over 23 mini-figures, a control-room for the laser, hangar bay with a movable launch rack, and even a detachable TIE Fighter for Lord Vader, the Death Star set is one of our favorite Star Wars sets ever constructed. It’s no secret when it comes to Lego kits, it’s the little details that count, and the Death Star is full of hidden easter eggs that’ll leave even the most dedicated fans of George Lucas’ space opera series giddy with glee. As you can imagine, something with so much intricacies and detail won’t come cheap: those 4,000 pieces will run you a cool $499, one of the more expensive sets still in production from Lego. It might sound expensive, but for the Star Wars fan in your life, this is a must-have gift.

Starting in 1958, the hollow-based plastic brick with top studs became known as the Lego Brick. Since then, the simple form has been inspiring generations of builders to create to their fullest potential. With the addition of the standard smiling minifigure in 1978, Legos became a plastic representation of human possibility. With a little imagination and a lot of Legos, the possibilities were endless. The first Lego space set became available in 1979. This was the first themed set; available with special features and bricks that were unattainable elsewhere.
With the popularity of LEGO Modular sets with the LEGO Creator Detective’s Office (10246) becoming the latest set released this year, LEGO has announced that they are bringing back some of the more popular Modular sets including Cafe Corner (10182) and the Green Grocer (10185) with a new theme/subtheme called Revival. This weekend at LEGO Stores and [email protected], they’ll be selling the sets for a limited time for VIP members. The only catch is there’s no word on what the pricing for the two sets will be. Hopefully, they’ll be the same as before but considering inflation since they sets were first released, I bet they’ll be slightly higher than before.

Some of the sets listed below are still available at Lego stores worldwide, while some are out of production. But you may find retired sets listed for outrageous prices on Amazon or eBay, though, those ones are arguable the best LEGO sets. Once Lego stops selling an item, or if produced in limited quantities, third parties grab those products and jack up the price depending on demand. You’ll find Lego sets a purchase limit per customer on certain items.
maybe the NeXT block bring to us someting completely different with modern building agaist the first one.or even better,lego could monetize the theme and make buildings of great brands like mcdonalds,Apple,CVS,pizza hut etc…isnt awesome?
The creator series Big Ben is an unimaginably accurate model that will take multiple days to complete. The set has been designed and scaled to pair with Lego’s Tower Bridge, so you may continue the fun after you have completed the build.

The only surprise here is that 2011’s Volkswagen T1 Camper Van was given the redesigned box treatment. It has been widely expected that this set would retire soon, and it still may, but an updated box does potentially indicate that there is still some time left on that set before it retires.
I bought this set to go along with Lego City Undercover on the Wii U, which is a must have game for anyone! If you buy this set with the Wii U game, you unlock the two vehicles in this set! Even at my older age, I absolutely loved building this set and using the code found on the police vehicles license plate in game to unlock the vehicles I just built. This was my first Lego set in probably 10 years and I’m absolutely in love with Legos again! It amazes me at how good Lego has gotten the sets and the details found on the cars etc. Buy this, and buy the Wii U and Lego City Undercover as well!

My 6 year old son just had a major surgery, and so he got lots of “surgery gifts” after. This was one of them. He asked me for this because he is a huge lego fan. This set has a TON of pieces, but he was able to complete it on his own. The functionality of this set is really cool. Lots of moving parts, booby-traps, etc. I was playing with him and was enjoying messing around with all of the gadgets on this one. It also comes with several of the batman characters too. It will take a young kid about 2 hours to build, due to the amount of pieces. If an adult or older child helps you can probably knock it out within an hour. Very cool set!
So what do these box redesigns tell us about the modular buildings series? Well, the simplest conclusion to draw is that the Palace Cinema, Parisian Restaurant, and Detective’s Office are here to stay and the Pet Shop is likely retiring soon. After all, why would LEGO update the boxes of sets just to retire them immediately after? And similarly, why would the Pet Shop be the lone modular using an old box design?

@drdavewatford, the reason for the great choice and appeal to AFOLs stems from Jamie Beard (according to “LEGO: A Love Story”), an AFOL turned set designer, argued with LEGO on our behalf to get us sets in the rare colors. You can also thank him for the small windows, which were created for the sets at his strong suggestion.
The Super Star Destroyer is a massive Lego set with 3,152 pieces and five mini-figures including Darth Vader, Admiral Piett, Dengar, Bossk and IG-88. You’ll spend most of your time building the interior structure of this ship (which in the end you don’t even see), but the results are an extraordinary detailed rendition of the massive ship from the Star Wars saga that measures almost 50-inches and weighs almost 8 pounds. The Super Star Destroyer sells for $399 US.

If you haven’t checked out Lego sets since you were a kid, you might be pleased to know they just aren’t for children anymore. Just like puzzle sets, there are a ton of Lego sets that are created and reproduced for a teenage or adult audience, those capable of handling the small details and thousands of pieces included in each set. These aren’t small, hundred-piece sets: they’re incredibly challenging, with long manuals and tons of pieces. Some are incredibly difficult to build without the focus and attention that comes with adulthood, while others include pneumatics and other moving parts that are challenging to children to create and enable. Some of them are even themed to suit adults, those of us who have interests in cars or architecture.
