Who wants to wait until June 1 anyway? The big LEGO Summer launch seems to have already happened at Smyths Toys, with the popular toy retailer offering the new NEXO KNIGHTS, The LEGO Batman Movie and CITY sets among others.
These have been turning up in stores, but now fans can pick the sets up online too. So there are images and prices available to check out. With Summer being the time when the LEGO Group typically release higher-priced sets that will sell at Christmas, there are lots of big, impressive sets to keep fans satiated.
60162 Jungle Air Drop Helicopter from the LEGO CITY range is exclusive to the retailer.
The reason for the early launch is unclear, but it is very common now for select toy retailers to get an exclusive early launch window for specific launches, which varies from territory to territory. It seems that in the UK and Ireland, Smyths Toys has got the jump on the competition this time – unless this is all an error which seems unlikely.
