I just finished covering the LEGO Friends line from Toy Fair and you can catch all the photos and details at our sister site. The one set I’m looking forward to is 41015 Dolphin Cruiser. Pleasure craft, yacht, cruiser, whatever you want to call it, it’s awesome and looks like it’ll be lots of fun. There are thirteen new sets with over a hundred pictures to peruse through, so head on over to HeartlakeFriends.com and take a look at what’s coming in 2013 for LEGO Friends.

Tonight was the industry awards show for the American International Toy Fair where they give out awards for Toy of the Year in various categories as well as induct any new inductees into the Toy Hall of Fame, and The LEGO Group walked away with three out of the twelve categories. It should be noted that no other manufacturer won more than one award. Top Honors for Toy of the Year went to LEGO Friends for which I’m very happy about. LEGO also won Activity Toy of the Year with LEGO Friends, Girl Toy of the Year with LEGO Friends, and Specialty Toy of the Year with LEGO Architecture. And that my friends is how this post is relevant.
After the great coverage of both the London and New York Toy Fair’s by our intrepid reporters Pete, Don and Ace it was easy to forget about the one held in Germany. Francesco “Frankie” Fondi (awesomely alliterated alias award) sent a heads up about LEGO’s occupation of the Nuremberg airport baggage area, which was overwhelmed with LEGO Star Wars statues. You can check out the rest of the shots at his site. I’d guess these are statues that may pop up in LEGO stores quite often, but I’ve never seen one in person and the thought of them invading an airport just seems like an odd publicity stunt. Neat nontheless.
It’s sad because they used to be so close…
