I have a confession. I have yet to be compelled to watch Cars 2. You might ask yourself, “Why then, did you, Mr. Reviewer, buy a Cars 2 LEGO set?” I chose this set because of its tangential relationship so another series of films I have seen many, many times.

With all the leaks and images floating around right now It seems fitting that LEGO would join the party on the official front and you can check out ads for the some of the 2012 offerings on YouTube. The first video features the new X-wing and TIE Fighter designs and lets you get a good look at the play features of the iconic starfighter’s latest re-release. This one is more of a tease since the street date for the Star Wars sets is still a bit off, but if the next video whets your appetite then those Cars sets are already available on LEGO S@H.
Thanks to THX 1138 for the heads up!

I keep trying to write short reviews for Cars, but I end up being a windbag so I can complain as much as possible. I will TRY to keep this one short but mostly because I told myself that I wouldn’t review the DC Super Heroes sets until I finished the Cars stuff. May contain spoilers.
