    Toy Fair 2019: Architecture, Classic, Creator, and DUPLO
    Hot Bionicle NewsThursday, March 7th, 2019 at 12:57pm by Andrew, BZPower News Manager

    We still have a few themes to go through from Toy Fair, and since we want to give some of the bigger ones their due credit, we're going to try to finish up some of the themes that generally have less interest. That means today we're taking a look at Architecture, Classic, Creator, and DUPLO, which have a variety of builds, including a few licensed ones. To get an overview of what's available for the first half of the year, read on!

    Architecure

    Toy Fair 2019 Architecture 01

    21043 San Francisco

    Toy Fair 2019 Architecture 03 Toy Fair 2019 Architecture 02

    556 Pieces. 12+

    The Architecture skylines subtheme continues to grow with two new cities added to the fold. Both Paris and San Francisco have some iconic landmarks that make sense to include, but perhaps those landmarks would have been better to see on their own (which in some cases we already have, obviously). Still, these sets frequently have a good variety of parts that can make them worth picking up too.

    Classic

    Toy Fair 2019 Classic 01 Toy Fair 2019 Classic 02 Toy Fair 2019 Classic 03 Toy Fair 2019 Classic 04 Toy Fair 2019 Classic 05 Toy Fair 2019 Classic 06 Toy Fair 2019 Classic 07 Toy Fair 2019 Classic 08

    11001 Bricks and Ideas

    11002 Basic Brick Set

    $19.99 (USD) 24.99 (CAD)
    Available in January

    The Classic name means sets that are usually lacking in formal instructions but have a variety of parts and some inspirational builds to encourage creativity and free-thinking. It also apparently includes LEGO-branded merchandise that isn't tied to a specific playtheme.

    All of the Creator sets on display were of the 3-in-1 variety, ranging from creatures to vehicles to buildings. I always enjoy the bright and bold colors that these sets feature, making them great parts packs. They also frequently have some creative building technqiues, especially in some of the alternate models, so you can definitely learn something from checking them out. I'm always a fan of the plane builds, and this year's Race Plane does not disappoint on that front.

    I don't think DUPLO is of interest to many people here, and for the most part the sets were more of the same. The standouts were of course the Spider-Man, Toy Story 4, and The LEGO Movie 2 sets, which have cool iconic characters in DUPLO figure form. While the builds aren't anything special, the sets might be worth picking up from a figure perspective.

    I'm not sure any of these sets are really must-buys, but depending on what you're looking for there are certainly some great builds and great parts to be had here. Many of these sets make up the core of LEGO offerings year after year, and I would say that the quality of the sets looks as strong as always. If you're interested in any of the other themes from Toy Fair 2019, make sure you check out all of our event coverage and share your feedback in the Talkback forum!
