    Toy Fair 2017: Collectibles
    Hot Bionicle NewsSunday, February 26th, 2017 at 1:36pm by Andrew, BZPower News Manager

    We're getting close to the end of our coverage of the LEGO booth at Toy Fair 2017. (But there will be a bunch of other cool stuff from the show we'll be looking at!) Today we're sharing the more collectible lines that LEGO has right now: Architecture, Minifigures, Ideas, and BrickHeadz. Each offers a unique experience for different types of fans and brings something different to the table. Let's go check them out!

    Architecture

    Toy Fair 2017 Architecture 01

    21032 Sydney

    Toy Fair 2017 Architecture 02

    361 pieces. Age 12+
    $29.99 (USD) $39.99 (CAD)
    Available in January

    The Architecture skyline sets are returning in 2017 and Sydney is certainly a city worthy of representation. I like how the opera house is further out in front to represent it being right on the harbor. The teeth pieces used as sailboats under the bridge is brilliant too.

    21033 Chicago

    Toy Fair 2017 Architecture 03

    444 pieces. Age 12+
    $39.99 (USD) $49.99 (CAD)
    Available in January

    It's a little surprising that Chicago didn't make the first round of skyline sets, but we've got it now. Willis Tower of course is the dominant building, but they even have little details like using a silver ball joint to represent The Bean.

    21034 London

    Toy Fair 2017 Architecture 04

    468 pieces. Age 12+
    $39.99 (USD) $49.99 (CAD)
    Available in January

    London is another city that fits very well in the series, even if it doesn't have massive skyscrapers like the others. The build for the London Eye looks really cool and the mini Tower Bridge is adorable.

    21035 Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum

    Toy Fair 2017 Architecture 06

    744 pieces. Age 12+
    $79.99 (USD) $99.99 (CAD)
    Available in April

    We're getting some normal Architecture sets this year, and first up is a new version of the Guggenheim Museum. This one has almost four times as many pieces as the 2009 version, and it shows in the smooth, studless look and the flowing curves. I especially enjoy that they included a street with a couple of cabs and even the crosswalks!

    21036 Arc de Triomphe

    Toy Fair 2017 Architecture 05

    Age 12+
    $39.99 (USD) $49.99 (CAD)
    Available in August

    Somehow, this is the first time this iconic Parisian monument has appeared in the Architecture series. The nanofigs are the perfect scale for statues, and I love the use of the hinge piece base to represent the finials and other details.

    Collectible Minifigures

    Toy Fair 2017 Collectible Minifigures 01

    71017 The LEGO Batman Movie Series

    Toy Fair 2017 Collectible Minifigures 04 Toy Fair 2017 Collectible Minifigures 05

    Age 5+
    $3.99 (USD) $5.99 (CAD)
    Available in January

    I think at this point just about everyone has seen the LEGO Batman Movie minifigs, so there's not too much exciting to see here.

    71018 LEGO Minifigures

    Toy Fair 2017 Collectible Minifigures 02

    Age 5+
    $3.99 (USD) $3.99 (CAD)
    Available in May

    This is our first look at the Series 17 collectible figs and there look to be some great additions. Everyone will have their own favorites but I like the French bulldog, the rocket costume, and the 80s cell phone.

    71019 LEGO Minifigures

    Toy Fair 2017 Collectible Minifigures 03

    Age 5+
    $3.99 (USD) $3.99 (CAD)
    Available in August

    Rumor has it that this series will be based on the LEGO Ninjago Movie, so you can expect different versions of the ninjas and hopefully a wide variety of badguys.

    Ideas

    Toy Fair 2017 Ideas 01

    None of the upcoming LEGO Ideas sets were shown, only the ones that are out already. I'm really looking forward to that Saturn V...

    21306 Yellow Submarine

    Toy Fair 2017 Ideas 02

    553 pieces. Age 10+
    $59.99 (USD) $74.99 (CAD)
    Available in 2016

    21307 Caterham 620R

    Toy Fair 2017 Ideas 04

    773 pieces. Age 12+
    $79.99 (USD) $99.99 (CAD)
    Available in 2016

    21308 Adventure Time

    Toy Fair 2017 Ideas 03

    496 pieces. Age 9+
    $49.99 (USD) $64.99 (CAD)
    Available in January

    BrickHeadz

    Toy Fair 2017 BrickHeadz 01

    41585 Batman & 41586 Batgirl

    Toy Fair 2017 BrickHeadz 05

    91 pieces. Age 10+
    $9.99 (USD) $12.99 (CAD)
    Available in March
    99 pieces. Age 10+
    $9.99 (USD) $12.99 (CAD)
    Available in March

    Straight out of The LEGO Batman Movie, our two heroes are pretty adorable in this format. I really like the purple Nexo Knight shields on Batgirl.

    41587 Robin & 41588 The Joker

    Toy Fair 2017 BrickHeadz 06

    101 pieces. Age 10+
    $9.99 (USD) $12.99 (CAD)

    If you're looking for some curved slopes these two sets will be right up your alley. It should be interesting to see how people reuse some of the printed parts.

    41589 Captain America & 41590 Iron Man

    Toy Fair 2017 BrickHeadz 02

    79 pieces. Age 10+
    $9.99 (USD) $12.99 (CAD)
    Available in March
    96 pieces. Age 10+
    $9.99 (USD) $12.99 (CAD)
    Available in March

    Moving from DC to Marvel, two of the biggest Avengers get the BrickHeadz treatment. I really like how Iron Man's armor is represented with the different slopes and the printing.

    41591 Black Widow & 41592 The Hulk

    Toy Fair 2017 BrickHeadz 03

    143 pieces. Age 10+
    $9.99 (USD) $12.99 (CAD)
    Available in March
    93 pieces. Age 10+
    $9.99 (USD) $12.99 (CAD)
    Available in March

    Rounding out the Marvel lineup are Hulk and Black Widow. I like how Hulk uses a different arm build to show off his big muscles. Black Widow has a lot of great Dark Orange parts in her hair, making her a good buy even if you're not into the series.

    41593 Captain Jack Sparrow & 41594 Captain Armando Salazar

    Toy Fair 2017 BrickHeadz 07

    109 pieces. Age 10+
    $9.99 (USD) $12.99 (CAD)
    Available in April
    118 pieces. Age 10+
    $9.99 (USD) $12.99 (CAD)
    Available in April

    We discussed these two in our Pirates of the Caribbean coverage, so we won't rehash them again here.

    41595 Belle & 41596 Beast

    Toy Fair 2017 BrickHeadz 04

    139 pieces. Age 10+
    $9.99 (USD) $12.99 (CAD)
    Available in March
    116 pieces. Age 10+
    $9.99 (USD) $12.99 (CAD)
    Available in March

    Even though these sets look to be based on the animated film, I'm sure the timing with the live action version this year is no coincidence. We get more Dark Orange with the Beast and I love the construction of Belle's dress.

    We hope you've enjoyed this look at the collectible themes LEGO is offering up this year. We'd love to hear your thoughts in the Talkback and to hear which are your favorite. If these sets aren't your thing, make sure you check out the rest of our Toy Fair 2017 coverage and keep checking back for more!
