Lego Sets New For 2016 Available From July - Technic, Nexo, City

It was with great excitement that the 2016 second half Lego catalogue arrived, this has pretty much all the Lego in it from July to December with all the big sets for Christmas.

Mixels Series 8 and Series 9 will be the last to be produced, the shine has definitely worn off them, as yet no replacement has been announced.

While Mixels has its own video-game, Calling all Mixels, the Angry Birds game reverses the relationship. The popular app game finally gets a LEGO treatment via The Angry Birds Movie and whilst nothing hugely revolutionary is here seeing how Lego pull off the various bird and pig characters will certainly be entertaining.

LEGO Nexo Knights is the big story in 2016 with a cartoon series launching in February and an app game, the top set for Christmas is a Nexo castle to make siege of. We hope that Nexo will help to rejuvenate the tricky Castle theme. We suspect this will appeal to Ninjago fans. Other sets include Jestro's Volcano Lair  and Axl's Tower Carrier.

In more traditional territory, LEGO City had updates for its Airport range which also includes a great value Lego Air Show set. Continuing on from the Arctic and Deep Sea explorer range Lego Volcano sets erupt onto the scene with some great price points and interesting vehicles.

LEGO Technic is always a popular end of year product will adults and children and 2016 is set to be the best yet with four great sets, we thought the super-sized excavator set was fantastic value, this is not only impressive in scale but also because it is motorised and comes complete with to-sacle dump truck. Also in Technic is the Claas rear loader, again motorised, and a JCB digger complete with pneumatic arm. As if this is not enough then a super secret fourth set sneaks in which very little is known about, this set is a huge Porshe car, set to coincide with the launch of the real thing, and comes complete with working flappy paddle gear box!

Super Heroes for DC and Marvel had a variety of sets. The Mighty Micros were the most eye-catching with miniature “pocket-money” sets featuring iconic heroes from both comic-lines.
