Got these in the last few days:

Lego Castle King's Castle Seige





Lego Club Magazine and 2009 Catalogue



Nothing really special for the first half of 2009 - seems like Power Miners is the big theme for 2009 with a whole 7 pages devoted to the line in the catalogue. New Pirates, Castle, Agents and Space sets are noticably absent so I'm guessing they wont be due down under until the 2nd half of 2009.

Awesome find Fungal. I'll assume you got it outside of retail? Hard to find that set.

And Digger. I thought that set was a bit overpriced for what you really get. I know there's a lot of peices for the base/stand but they always charge like 25% more for the Star Wars license.

From the past couple of years it appears taht Lego waves come in 3 distinct waves. Early on the year have a few sets from the last wave of the previous year mixed with a lot of new sets for the year. Then more new sets mid year, followed by a few more that overlaps to the following year.

I'm pretty sure Agents will see at least one more wave. Not sure they will have more after that to be honest. I was really surprised Exo-Force went for 3 years.

Got this as a Xmas pressie:



Set 10187. Pics when its done.

Saw him the other day in Kmart, but he really doesn't feel that heavy for such a big box/for such a large price. Any good, or was he a simple build?

I'm pretty sure I read from either brickset or some other Lego site that there would be new Agents sets - there was even a listing for the 2009 sets with set numbers and descriptions. Just a bit disappointed that we have to wait till the later part of the year to score new stuff, particularly Pirates and the new space line. And yeah, I scored the Castle set from Legoshop.com - cheapest I could find MISB with shipping and since I bought other sets from them as well, shipping wasn't too bad.

Ah won't know for a few months yet mate. Not until we move house again. No room to put him anywhere if I did build it.

That's strange because the Pirate sets have appeared in stores in America. They should be at the Start with the new Star Wars, Bionicle, Farm and Power Miners (or what ever they are called)
Agents and Space are understandable though because we haven't even seen pictures yet (right?)

I was aware of new Agents sets listed. But I think the last wave of the line was so recent that it will be silly to release the new wave this early.

I haven't seen a single picture of new Agents sets or Space. I'm excited by what they are going to do with those two lines actually.

I wonder if there will be Castle sets this year? Or will the Pirate set be the "period" line for the year?
