Lego Sets: Favorites This Year

0 Flares Made with Flare More Info'> 0 Flares ×

Lego is a fun, creative game for all ages. Perhaps even more than on younger kids, it has a unique appeal on adults who grew up playing with these magic little bricks. Because of this, the enduring magic of Lego has to be associated with its history and the way it shaped the childhood of millions of people around the world. With more technological games out there, I think that Lego’s current approach goes in the best possible direction; by making the most of its unique features, Lego has teamed up with successful franchises which remind many young adults of all that was good back when they were kids.

With so much cooking in terms of new series and special editions, I have decided to do a round-up of the best new Lego games out there – after all, grown-up life can be pretty boring. It’s finally time to have some Lego fun!

There is surely one saga whose greatness children of the 80’s can all agree on. Star Wars is in fact one of the reasons why I love ‘the decade that style forgot’. Now, Lego Star Wars has been around for a while. But as part of this toy saga, the fantastic news now is that a limited-edition Red-Five X-Wing Starfighter, straight out of Episode IV, will go on sale from May for nothing less and nothing more than $200. With 1,558 pieces, the spaceship is rather bulky (26cm x 52cm x 46cm) and does justice to the original one – take a look at this video to have an idea of what this fabulous set is all about.

If you were born a bit later in the 80’s, chances are that the Teenage Ninja Turtles were the most exciting presence on your television screen. The cartoon became such a success that it soon inspired a film saga of three episodes between 1990 and 1993. Having since disappeared from most TV channels, Teenage Ninja Turtles remained in the hearts of fans ever since. That’s why Michael Bay (Transformers) is now working on a sequel which will also see Megan Fox starring in it. Expected for summer 2014, the film has already inspired Lego to release a new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Shellraiser set comprehensive of 620 pieces. Allowing you to build the ninja van and including all four mutants, the set also includes enemies of old such as the Foot Clan ninjas and Kraang. Cowabunga!

Finally, a special mention for all those who think Lego is a lot of fun, but times are moving on and there’s nothing quite like virtual reality to take your mind off more stressful matters. Expected to be one of 2013’s major gaming hits, Lego Marvel Super Heroes will be the first videogame to make all of Marvel’s legendary characters take life in a virtual Lego form. From Spiderman, to Wolverine and Hulk, if you’re a fan of the Marvel heroes you better look out for this videogame, which will be released in autumn for Xbox, PS3, Wii U and PC.


  1. My nephew is a Lego whiz – I am always amazed at what he is able to design and build on his own (he is 8). He is getting a Star Wars set next time I see him!
