Ten must-have LEGO sets from the summer 2019 launch

The LEGO Group has launched a whole range of new sets this week – Brick Fanatics lists 10 of the most appealing releases

Yesterday saw a whole new host of LEGO sets released, with many appealing new models for fans to add to their collection. Brick Fanatics has taken a look at all of them and selected 10 of the most appealing sets that are available now at shop.LEGO.com.

LEGO Creator Expert 10269 Harley-Davidson Fat Boy

10269 Harley Davidson Fat Boy Brick Fanatics Magazine 2

Starting with the obvious, 10269 Harley-Davidson Fat Boy is a faithful recreation of Harley’s most iconic bike. Brick Fanatics has reviewed the new set, that is based on the motorcycle that became a worldwide icon in Terminator 2: Judgement Day. With 1,023 pieces it offers a decent build but at £84.99 isn’t at the insane end of the adult-targeted price spectrum.

LEGO Technic 42099 4×4 X-Treme Off-Roader

LEGO 42099

The LEGO Technic design team gets better and better each year at impressing with the summer wave and appealing to those who do not usually indulge in the complex theme. 42099 4×4 X-Treme Off-Roader looks like an awesome, impressive vehicle, with the added bonus that it can be controlled with the new CONTROL+ system. If the functions live up to the billing, this set will be a blast.

LEGO Hidden Side 70425 Newbury Haunted High School

LEGO Hidden Side 70425 High School 1

So many of the new LEGO Hidden Sides look fantastic, it is hard to know where to start. The school though, Newbury High, seems to be the focal point location for the story and as a model looks really impressive. Converting from a regular looking school to a spooky iteration, 70425 Newbury Haunted High School demonstrates the changing nature of these sets at a decent size.

The LEGO Movie 2 70848 Systar Party Crew

The LEGO Movie 2 70848 Systar Party Crew 2

The LEGO Movie 2: The Second Part has been perhaps the best theme of 2019, offering a huge selection of sets that are almost all of an exceptionally high standard. In the case of 70848 Systar Party Crew, the core characters are included in their Systar System appearances. These are some of the most desirable looks that the characters have in the film, making this a must-buy set for fans of the flick.

LEGO Harry Potter 75958 Beauxbatons’ Carriage: Arrival at Hogwarts

LEGO Harry Potter 75958 Beauxbatons Carriage 2

Another two new LEGO Harry Potter sets have launched, as the Wizarding World continues to expand. Not only does the carriage itself in 75958 Beauxbatons’ Carriage: Arrival at Hogwarts look great, but four desirable characters are included – Hagrid, Madame Maxime, Fleur Delacour and Gabrielle Delacour. The two Abraxans add to the appeal of this release too.

LEGO Ideas 21318 Treehouse

LEGO Ideas 21318 Treehouse 17

A theme that never seems to fail to impress is LEGO Ideas, and it does so yet again with 21318 Treehouse. For a full verdict, it is worth reading the Brick Fanatics review, but suffice to say the largest pice count in the theme so far is put to good use. An impressive model when finished, it would take a miserable outlook not to feel joy from this delightful model.

LEGO Technic 42098 Car Transporter

Given that 42098 Car Transporter is completely huge, it is worth consideration. While size isn’t everything, it certainly helps for a vehicle such as this one, as the Brick Fanatics review explains. £149.99 for 2,493 pieces is a fair deal and it is hard to imagine anyone feeling short-changes after indulging in building this behemoth.

LEGO Minecraft 21153 The Wool Farm

It does not take a Minecraft fan to see the fun in this bizarre set, that features a giant blocky red sheep overlooking a field, that contains small, regular-for-LEGO sized sheep in various colours. It is off the wall and fun, which makes 21153 The Wool Farm worth consideration.

LEGO Hidden Side 70422 Shrimp Shack Attack

LEGO Hidden Side 4022 Shrimp Shack Attack 1

Given that newbury is a coastal town, shrimp is on the menu. This Hidden Side set looks neat thanks to it representing a typical looking American diner, but as is expected in this theme, it has a ghoulish secret. 70422 Shrimp Shack Attack balances a nice design with some fun features.

The LEGO Movie 2 70849 Wyld-Mayhem Star Fighter

The LEGO Movie 2 70849 Wyld Mayhem Starfighter 1

This neat looking spaceship appears during the final action sequence in The LEGO Movie 2: The Second Part, explaining why the set was not released until now. For a spacecraft, 70849 Wyld-Mayhem Star Fighter has a unique mant ray shape and a nice colour scheme that reflects both Wyldstyle and Sweet Mayhem’s personalities.
