The new LEGO catalog is out, and I'm afraid I may have to find some way to get some. The first exciting thing is a new theme: Atlantis. Evil, LEGO, Evil.
Now, the Manta Man doesn't look like much, but he could be a Black Manta's lackey. The Shark Man is a dead ringer for King Shark, and I think I need one of him. There's also a squid guy, but he's not as adaptable to the DCU.
Also of interest: Toy Story. I don't care about most of them, but I really REALLY want a couple of set of those Army Men. Heck, I'd like a dozen of those sets. I'm not sure why, but they appeal to me on many levels.
If I had a lot of money and space to put it in, I'd definitely get the new Imperial Flagship. Awesome looking set!
Overall, I'm really liking the new LEGO this year. Lots of houses and buildings in the Town sets, instead of just cars. I wish I could afford the Medieval Market Village. I drooled over that set when I first saw it at a LEGO con a year ago. I'm disappointed in the direction the trains theme is going. I didn't like the RC trains when they first came out, and I still don't like them. But other than the trains, I think LEGO has a good collection of sets coming out this year. Wish I was still a kid!
