New York Toy Fair 2013 LEGO Exclusives

Toy Fair 2013 Exclusive 1


The giveaway for this years LEGO Collector's Event is themed on the new LEGO television series and the rumour is it teases an upcoming event that will further tease reveals about the show and or marketing. It's really hard to imagine where said event could take place... It's the first encased mini set since 2010 and features a lot of great pieces I'd love to have parted out. FYI, that's not going to happen.

But wait, there's more! LEGO also included a carded version of the "Employee of the Month" Vader exclusive from the upcoming Empire Strikes Out DVD. Pretty sweet. We'll have lots of coverage coming soon, but feel free to let us know what you think of the exclusives and ask any questions. Just be patient, there's a lot of work ahead.

Onions, or whomever is lucky enough to be at the Toy Fair, could you find out who that lovely looking green jedi with the dual blades is on the background of the Yodi promotion set? Not sure if this is the spot to place questions other than SW ones but is there anyway to find out if Lego will be making additional sets based on Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles? Perhaps a new line next winter? Thanks in advance!

1. That's Luminara Unduli but we don't know why she's in white.

2. There were no new TMNT sets on display.

Thanks for taking the time to answer Don. Are you sure that the jedi in white is Luminara Unduli? The figure seems to be lacking the tattoo that Unduli has on her chin. Some folks have been discussing the idea that the figure is a new one from the Yodi Chronicles sets.
Also, I didn't think there would be any new TMNT sets on display based on the info from the German toy fair. Would there be any way to ask the Lego representative if they are planning on making another line in the future? Thanks!

I did not notice the lack of face tattoo, it is possible she's a new character after all. Not details were given. Likewise with TMNT. We've already left the event so there are no Lego reps around to question further. You know what we know.

It's... beautiful :O However certainly not worth a thousand dollars. No way in a million years.
May the mass times acceleration be with you!

Eesh! That's an exclusive I won't cough up any dough for. Cool to have? Yes. Necessary? Hell no! $800-$900 on EBay? NOPE.

I'd just like access to the yoda torso and sith mailbox =-) I don't need promo stuff, in fact i'd probably open it to get the pieces out, im silly like that. But as a New Yorker, born and raised, that figure is so very necessary! ... Off to buy lottery tickets.

I love how they mimicked some broadway shows with the billboards in the vein of Wicked and Cats.
