Hello, just2good here, and today we’re taking a look at the Top 25 LEGO sets coming out in Summer 2018 which I want the most. The sets that won’t appear on the list are ones I already own, and some that haven’t been revealed at this
time, which are from upcoming movies. Without further ado, let’s get into this! [intro music] Starting off the list is The LEGO Star Wars Snoke’s Throne Room. I think many agree this is the best scene
of the Last Jedi, so of course I want to own it as a LEGO set. But it’s seventy bucks. Seventy bucks for a set of this size, with only about five hundred pieces? Well yep, that’s LEGO Star Wars for you. It’s missing those awesome red walls, and it’s twenty bucks overpriced. If those weren’t the case, this would easily be in the Top 5 of this
set. Sure, the Praetorian Guards are some of the coolest looking figures of
this year. And sure, this has that updated Rey with the
newer hairpiece. So I still want it, but I’ll pick it up on sale, and that’s why it’s so low. [transition music] The LEGO City Capital set is a good looking
set, but there’s enough weighing it down that I know I’ll wait for it to go on sale
to pick it up… if I could find it on sale. So like, I love the Hotel, even though it’s pretty darn small. The food stand where you can grab a SLIZEE, the little icey stand, and the tour bus are both great. But there’s pointless additions that bump up the price and take away from
other builds, like this random out of place halfpipe and
the crane. That wouldn’t be a problem if it was a cheaper
set, but it is one hundred and fifty bucks. And all these builds do is take away pieces from something like the Museum – which, come on. They used the excuse that it’s being built to make it a very shallow build. Like, I’m glad they included the exhibit, but with nothing else inside it’s disappointing. I wish I was more inclined to get this set, but oh well. [transition music] The LEGO Ninjago City Docks is a set I almost feel obligated to get, since I love the regular Ninjago City set. But this one has a lot more generic buildings
and such, that I’m much less interested in picking
it up early. However, it is smaller, and about 120 bucks
cheaper. There’s a couple of interesting minifigures, and the overall look is still a great stylized
set. And, one thing I noticed pretty late on is the Johnny Thunder references. There’s two. I’ll keep one a secret, but the other one is this billboard right
here. If this is a direct to consumer set like the
first, I’ll have to pay full price, so I might just wait ‘til Christmas time or if there’s a good LEGO Store promo. [transition music] The LEGO Batman Attack of the Talons is a 20 dollar set with a build I don’t
care about, but some great figures. Welcome to LEGO DC Super Heroes. The armored Batman is cool, the Talons are a lot like TMNT foot soldiers, but Ace the Bathound is super adorable in the coolest way possible. He has basically sold this set to me. Yeah, I may not get it over some other sets, but I don’t mind paying full price – it’s only twenty bucks after all. [transition music] The Unikitty Party Time set has a cute build. It’s not amazing, but I like how colorful and fun it looks. However, the best build of it is Hawkodile
– who is exclusive to this one. With some of those pieces I don’t even know how they’re doing it. But it’s really just an interesting build
overall, so I want to buy it when it releases – like I said with the Attack of Talons, it’s only twenty bucks after all. [transition music] he LEGO Ninjago Golden Dragon Master is almost a necessity to me. Whenever they release one of these new… spinner of flier toys for Ninjago, I make sure to get one. I wanna see what the playstyle is for each, and this is no different. And y’know, I don’t feel bad getting one, since this also has a great minifigure. I don’t know who it is, but the exclusive gold head wrap and outfit is really neat. I don’t like how this is fifteen, five more than expected, but it’s not too bad of a deal. [transition music] The LEGO Batman: Brother Eye Takedown is a
weird set. And I like weird sets. Well, the Brother Eye build is the oddity. I love the creepy eye at the middle. But I just don’t care for another Batwing, and that build is most of the set. I like the minifigures, especially Batwoman. This dude is a crazy looking figure, and that’s his draw, since he isn’t a super iconic character. But again, it’s about thirty bucks, so I don’t mind getting this for the figures and the weird build. I’ll just use the Batwing for pieces. [transition music] The LEGO Star Wars Hoth Medical Chamber was missing from the Assault on Hoth… a bit late making this add-on, LEGO, but still, it’s a nice playset that basically is all I need for the base. I can easily mod it to be just a regular Hospital
Room. The exclusive Luke has interesting printing, the Leia figure will be one of my first, surprisingly, and the Hoth Medical Droid is a nice design as well. This would be higher, but I have a habit of buying these twenty to thirty dollar LEGO Star Wars sets and not building them, so I’m a bit scared that’ll happen. I do wish it was cheaper than 30 bucks, though. [transition music] While I try to collect all Brick Headz, the only ones on this list is this two pack. More specifically, that AWESOME Dumbledore. I love the rob printing all over, and the beard is excellently done. I also adore when LEGO use a different mould to illustrate other existing moulds – and that’s what they did here with the glasses. It’s a niche thing I appreciate. Ron is fine too, but it’s just Albus who’s more interesting, and for twenty bucks, these will be fun to build. [transition music] The fact we’re getting LEGO Powerpuff Girls
sets this summer seperate from their brief run in LEGO Dimensions was a total surprise, and the smallest of the bunch is Bubbles’
Playground. I do wish the builds were better here. A yellow mech is a cool idea, but this one is too puny. I do love the Morbucks minifigure, with that crazy moulded head, and good enough deal for twenty bucks. For me, I’m more inclined to get sets on
a new, strange cartoony license than some of the smaller additions to past
licenses, keep that in mind. My priorities are all over the place. [transition music] The Arctic Exploration Team is the only LEGO City Arctic set I really
want this summer. It’s cheap as heck and gives me a taste of the awesome minifigure
designs being sprinkled throughout the sets. The new aviator hat mould is fantastic, and the other outfits are cool. Pun completely intended. The builds are lacking even for a starter
set, but hey, cute lil’ husky! Those aren’t in too many cheap sets these
days. [transition music] The Unikitty Fair Ground is definitely the most interesting building
set of the series. While I wish the coaster was more complete, it would fit nicely as something in a kiddie section of a theme
park. The side build fits with that as well, and it’s a dream of mine to make a LEGO
Amusement Park set up. I don’t get the two random go carts though, but they’re not too annoying since the set is only forty bucks. It’s also the way I’ll be getting Richard
the Brick and Dr. Fox whom I always thought were silly
designs. [transition music] The LEGO Ninjago Throne Room Showdown is definitely my favorite of the new wave. It’s like Kryptarium Prison – a little playset build with five minifigures, all for 20 bucks. I especially like the girl with white hair, and since I’m not getting any of the other
sets, this will give me some of those new Ninja
outfits. I do wish the build was a bit more interesting
– like, it’s even more basic than Kryptarium
Prison, but it’s not terrible overall. [transition music] The LEGO Creator Pirate Rollercoaster is a lot of people’s favorite this year
– as it’s a cheaper alternative to the big
D2C coaster, but still has the unique pirate flair to hold
on its own. I think it’s a decent price for 90 bucks, and while I wish the rollercoaster had more
tracks, and was automated with different mechanisms, the que line may even be better than the D2C
coaster’s since this one has more style to it. This is a set I’m going to really want to buy multiple copies of, since the other two builds are completely different roller coasters – though those are smaller, so I’ll wait ‘til I can snag extra copies
on clearance. [transition music] The only LEGO Friends set I really want this
Summer is the Drifting Diner. People always complain that there’s too
much pink and purple in LEGO Friends. Well, get a taste of this set – pun also intended. This set can be integrated into any LEGO city. I love LEGO restaurants, so this is up my alley. The burger design is really well made. The little theater screen is cute and a unique
idea. The go kart side build is pointless, but it fits the theme so I don’t mind. And finally, that older lady’s hair piece is the return of Holtzman’s hair! But it’s in a new color now, so this has that added flair – a new hair piece. And it’s only thirty bucks! With all of that considered, you can tell why this is so high on my list. [transition music] The LEGO Harry Potter Quidditch Match set is my least favorite of the Wizarding World
bunch, at least of what we’ve seen so far. I’ve never really cared for the Quidditch
scenes in the movies, since I’m not much of a sports
guy. With that being said, I want to get all of the Harry Potter sets this time around, so that I can make a proper Hogwarts display. With that in mind, I’m gonna need the Quidditch Field. It’s not even a bad deal for forty bucks
– there’s 500 pieces and it’s a pretty substantial
build. But it also seems like a very repetitive build. Still, I wish Hooch was in this set and not that mysterious four pack. But I’ll need it to go with the other sets, and the new Snitch mould is friggin’ awesome. [transition music] The only LEGO Fantastic Beasts 2 set revealed at the time is Grindewald’s Escape, and this set is a fun one for 20 bucks. The Thestrel Carriage is perfect in my opinion
– the center build has a nice gothic flavor
to it, and the exclusive thestral is friggin’ cool. Not only that, but the Seraphina minifigure is a standout in this new Wizarding World
line – that sandblue looks so pretty. [transition music] The biggest of the new Powerpuff Girls sets is the better one. You know Mojo Jojo is a physical figure I wanted for a while. Well, this set finally has him! But it’s not a set I want just for one minifigure, because the build of the Diamond Store is
adorable. It’s like the one from the 20 dollar LEGO
Batman Movie set, but a bit more complete. I do with the other builds were more interesting
– they’re not bad, don’t get me wrong. I also wish that Blossom and Buttercup had different facial expressions from their LEGO Dimensions sets. Still, 30 bucks, I’ll take this one. [transition music] The LEGO Harry Potter Hogwarts Express set is a very nice set for 80 bucks. It’s lower in my priorities than some other bigger Harry Potter sets because it’s not essential to a Hogwarts
Display, but still, it’s a beautiful build, and I do want to get it on release. The Hogwarts Express is satisfying – surprisingly not too cramped on the inside. But if I had to be honest, the best part is the Platform 9 and 3 quarters
build. Oh my gosh, yes yes yes. Finally. This one is more of a complete station, and I love stuff like the bridge and the fact that you can go through the walls. So cute. The dementor figure, who only appears in this set of the stuff
revealed so far, is great as well. Properly spooky. [transition music] I love the idea of LEGO hospitals, but there’s so few recently, I’ve never been able to get my hands on
any. However, I think the one releasing this summer for City is the best of the three. It’s not perfect, and if it was cheaper than one hundred bucks, it would be a lot higher. The inside is cramped, but I like clever inclusions like the light brick for the x-ray slides, and the smol cafeteria. The exterior is just about perfect though, and that’s what draws it to me the most. I’ll need to make a little city shelf, and this would be one of the centerpieces. [transition music] The LEGO Harry Potter Whomping Willow set is basically the smaller Hogwarts attachment
of the year – but it’s still great. While I wish the inside was bigger, the potions class is perfect, the Gryffindor House has good stuff but gosh, I wish it was expanded, and finally, a proper Filch. The Whomping Willow is a fun build, but of course, the iconic flying ford is flawless… say that three times fast. All for seventy bucks, which will go perfectly with a set you’ll see later on in the video… [transition music] The LEGO Unikitty blind bags are placing high up on the list! It ain’t LEGO Minifigures, but they’re still four buck blind bags. They’re less useful than LEGO minifigures
for myself, but still collectible – and some of these designs are adorable. My favorites include the reptile suit, camo suit, and hawaiian shirt outfits for
Unikitty. Oh, and Puppycorn as… chocolate cake? I don’t even know. There’s great printing on these fellas! And it’s always fun opening up blind bags
on camera. [transition music] It’s the season of another LEGO People Pack, and this one is Outdoor Adventures. This one is probably the best of the three, like, I’ve gushed about this set in videos
before, so let me keep it brief. Lots of amazing prints here. And pieces. Some highlights include the new hair piece, the baby holder with a new baby color, and a new eagle mould, and a printed 1×1 sunny side up egg. So yeah. Forty bucks, and it’ll be great to use to make new minifigures and vignettes. [transition music] The LEGO Harry Potter Great Hall set is frigggggggin’ awesome, even for its one hundred dollar price tag. The outside is instantly recognizable and makes for a great centerpiece for that display I want to make. I love the fact it conntects to the Whomping
Willow section. The dining hall interior, which like the one in the Whomping Willow, I wish was bigger, still gives enough room
to play around. Of course, the minifigures are phenomenal. Now, I don’t know how much of these will
be in the LEGO Minifigures Series, but the Hagrid is SO good, as is Dumbledore – and for the sets, both are exclusive. For other exclusives, Mcgonagall is great, Quarrel is great, Nearly Headless Nick is great, the gosh darn sorting hat is great… great great great great. just2great! [transition music] My most wanted set of Summer 2018 is… the LEGO Creator Expert Roller Coaster! When I was younger, I would always play a game called Rollercoaster
Tycoon 2, where you could create your own rides and
parks. And, it was so fun doing that – I still play the game ‘til this day. So with this huge push of LEGO roller coasters
this year, it’s like a dream come true. And this is the most ultimate of coasters. Sure, it’s a hefty 380 bucks, but the size and such makes it clear that it’s worth the price tag. I love the dips they give for maximum amusement, and the fact that you can add power functions
– which I will be doing. And the side builds are pretty excellent – like the little cotton candy stand, which brilliantly reuses the beehive mould
in pink. I’ll just say I want this set so much, I may already have it coming in the mail. You guys will have to wait and see. And that’s it!

  1. Hey, commenting from August 2018, and I didn’t buy the Grindelwald’s escape set only because the price was to much, $20, and the only thing I wanted in it was the Thestral.

  2. No idea when it releases (or if it will even be approved, hopefully yes), but my most wanted set is by far the Lego Ideas Falcon Heavy for now.

  3. WOW! Snoke's Throne Room – 500 pcs. – $70; Harry Potter Quidditch Match – 500 pcs. – $40; LEGO has some issues if this is their pricing!

  4. You want to buy girl Lego’s ?πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

  5. 1:35 Oh yes. The Exhibition Meuseum of Windows. With a white pillar and black carpet, it truly stands out as the smallest and most pointless building of all time.

  6. I may get the Throne Room! And The Dragon Master Jay! I already have The Golden Dragon Master and The Destiny's Wing! And i may get the Stormbringer? I guess?

  7. β€˜Just too great’ I thought your name was β€˜just too good’ πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

  8. Ninjago City Docks was the best set of last year lol. If you didn't pick it up your bad luck. I got two. Stomps anything done by Creator Expert to date. As did City!
