As you can see from the article below, LEGO has added inventories to its customer services site and among the new ones are some for several previously unknown polybags which are now in the list of 2014 polybags. We don't have images yet but you could have fun trying to guess how to make the set from their inventory.

This Architecture version of The Eiffel Tower is now available at shop.LEGO.com and also brand stores and, I believe, selected stores in Paris. The LEGO CEE team has kindly sent review copies to selected AFOL sites.
The Eiffel Tower is arguably the most recognised and famous man-made structure in the world. Built in 1889, it was supposed to stand for just 20 years before being dismantled, but Eiffel successfully persuaded the authorities that it was useful for communications and scientific experiments, so it still stands to this day.
This is the second model LEGO has produced of it, the first one being the 1:300 scale, 3400-piece behemoth 10181 released in 2007.
This one is to a much smaller scale, and stands at just 300 mm high.

Hungarian online LEGO webshop legomarkabolt.hu has added a lot of second-half 2014 sets to its listings, including the return of Agents and City Arctic, City trains, Star Wars, Chima and more. They are listed in this list of unreleased 2014 sets. Set names are translations from Hungarian so won't be exactly right.
Meanwhile, this picture of a forthcoming LEGO Movie set has surfaced and is said to be a LEGO exclusive. There are pictures of others in a TLM book that's just been published. I don't have a copy yet so I can't provide better scans, so for now you can see photos of the pages at The Brick Fan.
Happy New Year!

Following on from the reviews by CapnRex101 and Huw, I’m going to take a look at 70806 Castle Cavalry. This set is one of a few that offers a “2-in-1” build. At 424-pieces, this set sits in the mid-size category and has a price point of £24.99 / $29.99 (US). The main model I can only describe as “pod racer” looking, castle ship, cavalry, thingy… When Huw told me I was getting this set to review, I was quite excited as I thought it would be cool to have a castle that turns into a vehicle! Sadly now I have built it, my enthusiasm has wavered a little. Also in the main build is a Robot drone belonging to Lord Business – the main antagonist from the movie. The other build of this set is the “Castle Tower” as it’s referred to in its description. This is essentially a castle gate with a tower either side, and also includes a small catapult to help defend the gate! Where the gate leads to – who know’s! I guess we’ll find out when the movie hits our screens in February!
EDIT: I made a call on not including pictures of both builds as I felt the interest would probably be focused on the main build and not the alternate. It was the wrong call. I have now uploaded pictures of the alternate build for everyone to see which I hope makes up for it. As for the tone of my review, it was honest. It's how I felt as I built it and afterwards, and I stand by what I have said.

Brick Heroes has uncovered this new Batman polybag which was listed at eBay.fr. It looks pretty cool, doesn't it?
Clearly polybag collectors are going to be as busy in 2014 as they have been in 2013: we already know of four other new ones and the year hasn't even begun...

When The LEGO Movie (TLM) hits theatres and cinemas in February, it will be the biggest thing that's ever happened in the LEGO world and will focus the mainstream media's attention on the LEGO brand and its products. It will either flop badly, or be a huge success and draw many more people into the hobby.
I fear that it will be full of wise-crack one-liners and silly visual gags at the expense of a coherent script, but I really hope I'm wrong.
LEGO has released the movie tie-in sets in most markets already and has kindly sent them out to a number of AFOL sites, including Brickset, to review. CapnRex101 kicked things off yesterday with his review of one of the smallest sets. CapnRex, DrDaveWatford, Kempo81, Matthew and I will review the others over the next couple of weeks, rather than publish them all now and give you too much to take in all at once.
When I first saw pictures of 70803 Cloud Cuckoo Palace, my immediate reaction was 'what on earth is that all about?!' I have to admit to thinking that about most of the TLM sets but this one provoked the strongest reaction. Now I've built it, does it all make sense? Read on to find out...

Before I get into the review, a huge thanks to the LEGO CEE team for sending the new LEGO Movie sets to Brickset for review, and to Huw for sending a couple of them onto me.
The LEGO Movie sets have been highly anticipated, and should prove popular thanks to the diversity of themes which the film is encompassing. One of the smallest of the thirteen sets which have been released is 70800 Getaway Glider, priced at £11.99 or $12.99, consisting of 104-pieces. As the least expensive of the LEGO Movie models (equal with 70801 Melting Room), this will perhaps be a popular starter set to the theme, and I think it is a great introduction! Not only is Emmet, the protagonist in the film, included but we are also provided with a pair of Lord Business' sinister robots in the form of Sheriff Not-a-robot and Deputron which will provide potential for plenty of entertainment.
This is an excellent little set actually, among the best I own at this price point. There is plenty of playability to be had with a model which looks excellent on display, and there is a brilliant selection of parts as well for such a small model, so I am very impressed with the Getaway Glider as a whole.
