A few upcoming LEGO themes have had set pictures surface these past few days, most notably Unikitty! and LEGO City. Princess Unikitty of The LEGO Movie fame will have sets based on the TV show Unikitty!, including 12 collectible minifigures, reports The Brothers Brick. Also, LEGO City is going back to the Arctic with some digging machines to get a hold of a wooly mammoth and saber-toothed tiger, shows the Brick Show. If you have any other leads that are not leaks of upcoming sets, please pass the news along to BZPower.

Those Arctic sets look fantastic! I'm glad they stuck with the color scheme from a few years back; that orange is really eye-catching.

So excited for Unikitty! Bionicle fans, take note that Puppycorn's tail is a Bionicle ball joint, adding blue and teal to the colors that part's available in…

I still need to watch that TV show, though… it's hard to keep up with TV at college. :(

Those collectible minifigs are going to be fun to try to guess from feeling the packages... :P

That teal Bionicle ball joint is beautiful! Is it the same shade of teal as the teal from 2001 Kongu and Tarakava?

 

Also, is it just me, or is there a new neck piece on these Unikitties?

Summer can't come soon enough. I really like the arctic sets. For some reason, these remind me of the series from around 2000 more so than the more recent incarnation of the arctic theme.

I've heard it's a 1x3 inverted tile with a hole in the center that attaches to the 1x1 round plate with a bar.

Rumor has it that the Docks has twice as many easter eggs as Ninjago City itself. Nick Vas is a big LEGO nerd. :P

That sticker of Mata Nui is almost tempting enough to purchase the whole set, for me at least.

Same. Pretty clever selling point, I must say! And interesting how they're catering to different types of Lego fans with these easter eggs in Ninjago sets.

I think Lego knows they have a faithful base of fans in the BIONICLE community, plus, per Lego's own people, it is the theme that saved them from bankruptcy.

If you can't get the whole set, there's always a certain other Brick marketplace you could turn to. :P No selling required!

Why sell a kidney to buy the set when you could buy the set and exchange everything but the sticker sheet for a third kidney?

I am alarmed by how many members of this forum appear to know the black market street value of a kidney.

We may need someone to build a ball joint ball color chart.

Don't worry about the kidney values. Were only selling mega blocks fan's kidneys. :P

Also the only colors I know to be in ball joints are black, red, light tan, and now this new teal color.
(I might be missing some please correct me if I'm wrong.)

Curiously, it appears that several non-production colors are available on BrickLink. I suspect spray paint may be involved, although mislabeled colors pop up often enough.

 

Note that the printed versions would have different BrickLink catalog entries.

I reckon some of those are unprinted versions of printed ones (either ones that escaped the factory or ones with the prints removed). Dark Gray, Orange, and Sand Blue ones have appeared in sets with prints but not without. The only ones beyond that are Yellow, Neon Green, and Flat Silver, and the latter two at least are most likely just misidentified.
