No summer 2018 previews at toy industry fairs

The upcoming LEGO ranges will not be previewed at the toy fairs in London, Nuremberg and New York.

Brickset reports that there will be no previews of the LEGO summer 2018 sets at the worldwide toy fair events. Typically, photography is permitted at the International Toy Fair in Nuremberg, Germany and New York Toy Fair. It seems that this year will not give fans a sneak peek at what is coming up, according to the website’s information:

  • LEGO does not have a stand at all at the London Toy Fair (23-25 Jan)
  • Severe reporting and photography restrictions will be in place at Nuremberg (31 Jan – 4 Feb) and while some fan sites are attending, including our friends over at Promobricks, we are not anticipating that anything interesting will be revealed.
  • LEGO will not be exhibiting the summer releases at the New York toy fair (17-20 Feb). Those that are attending the preview party have been told “only products launching the first half of 2018 will be in the LEGO booth this year at Toy Fair. We will not be showing any products launching June or later”

The LEGO Group has not confirmed when the summer 2018 range will be officially announced.
