Reminder: a whole bunch of new LEGO sets are launching on Monday

Here’s your friendly neighbourhood reminder that a brand new batch of LEGO Star Wars, Batman and Marvel sets are launching in just two days.

For what may well be the first time ever, April 26 marks a pretty big day in the LEGO calendar. We’ve already seen the LEGO Group split its January wave of sets into two launches – one on New Year’s Day, then again on March 1 – but this is perhaps the most prominent example of a release day outside the start of a given month in recent memory.

A total of eight different sets and one blind-bagged series are launching across four different themes, all of which represent licensed LEGO properties. A fifth – consisting of three long-delayed sets – was also originally scheduled to go live at at the same time, but the trio of expected Minions: The Rise of Gru sets have now been pushed back again to May 24.

I like to think of myself as a journalist first, LEGO fan second, but we all know that’s not really the case. Journalism does run through my veins, though, like some kind of weird literary blood – the sort that will no doubt one day lead to a stress-induced heart malfunction. It’s like smoking, only worse. Thankfully, I get to write about LEGO until then. You can follow me on Twitter at @brfa_chris.
