Each January, LEGO releases a new Creator Expert modular building. Last year’s 10255 Assembly Square looked to the past and celebrated the 10th anniversary of the line, beginning with 10182 Café Corner. With 10 years full of European-style architecture, replete with curlicues and fluted columns, the line heads in a new direction this year with 10260 Downtown Diner, taking obvious inspiration from the American West of the 1930’s through 1950’s rather than pre-crash Paris or London (or even New York or Boston). 10260 Downtown Diner includes 2,480 pieces with six minifigs.
We have some very fun details on a bunch of the coming 2018 summer LEGO sets for the Avengers: Infinity War film. We are not allowed to post the images but here is what we know.
76101 – Outrider Dropship Attack
Minifigures: Captain America, Black Widow, Outrider
Summary: Small buildable dropship as Black Widow and Captain America fight an Outrider over an Infinity stone.
76102 – Thor’s Weapon Quest
Minifigures: Groot, Thor, Rocket Raccoon
Summary: Thor is zapping some sort of portal with Rocket flying in on a space vessel similar to the Necrocraft from the 76081 in The Milano vs. The Abilisk set. However, this one is colored light grey and orange.
76103 – Corvus Glave Thrasher Attack
Minifigures: Vision, Black Panther, Corvus Glave, Outrider, Shiri

76108 – Sanctum Sanctorium Showdown
Minifigures: Dr. Strange, Iron Man, Iron Spider, Black Dwarf, Ebony Maw
Summary: Impressive Sanctum Sanctorium building that looks like it could fit in with other LEGO Creator modular buildings (although not quite as big). However, I can’t see the back of it to say for sure. Definitely the most exciting set in the wave!
