2014 set rumours

All of a sudden there seem to be a lot of rumours detailing some of the late-2013 and early-2014 Lego sets. Below you'll find details and set lists for new themes including Disney Princess, The Simpsons, The Lego Movie, as well as all the returning themes: Star Wars, The Hobbit, Batman, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Friends, City, Legends of Chima, Ninjago, Junior, and Creator. Keep in mind though these are rumours at this stage.

Continue after the jump for a theme by theme listing. Updated October 9th.

Star Wars

The only set revealed so far: 75043 AT-AP
Flickr user David Hall posted the following list, complete with set numbers. There will be the usual assortment of minifigure sets based on Star Wars vehicles, largely based on Revenge of the Sith this time. There will also be several new minifigure heavy battle-packs, and a new series called "Microfighters". The latter is apparently a replacement for the planets series, featuring under-scaled rendition of vehicle which seats a related minifigure, in the same style as some of the recent convention exclusive sets - Bricks and Bloks posted descriptions of these sets. The Brick Fan has also posted suggesting a UCS Slave 1 might be on the way.

The Simpsons

It would appear the rumours of The Simpsons Lego are ture, and although Lego haven't official announced the series yet, they have talked a little about it to the press, as Brickset reported. Reddit user LegoCody posted the following list of expected sets in the first wave of releases, including which minifigures will be included:
  • Bart's Skate Trick (Bart and Millhouse)
  • Homer at the Control Panel (Homer, Mr. Burns, and Smithers)
  • Lisa's Sax Performance (Lisa, Marge, Sherry and Terri)
  • Springfield Shops (Bart, Krusty Burger cashier, Krusty, Apu, and Nelson)
  • Simpson's House (Homer, Marge, Bart, Lisa, Maggie, Grandpa, Flanders, and Santa's Little Helper)
Contrary to this list however Nerdly suggests there will just be one set, initially, a Lego direct exclusive Simpson's House. However they also report that series thirteen of the collectable minifigures will be a The Simpsons wave!

Eurobrick's Klaus-Dieter has reported that Series 12 will be the one getting this treatment.


      All About Bricks reports this is the new name for the Bricks and More series; the basic intro to Lego sort of sets, which focus more on creativity than making a single detailed model. Interestingly some Super Heroes characters will be included in this range in 2014:
