Early this morning Collider had the pleasure of checking out the Lego display prior to the start of Toy Fair.  The company is rolling out its largest collection yet, 246 new products in total with a number of standouts in the mix.

We’ve got photos of all 17 The LEGO Movie products including the Toy Fair exclusive reveal, Metal Beard’s (voiced by Nick Offerman) pirate ship, the Sea Cow.  The Star Wars line welcomed pieces from the new Rebels television show as well as the Microfighters, a series that offers smaller versions of much larger ships like the Millennium Falcon and the X-Wing Fighter. Also in the spotlight at the event was the LEGO Ghostbusters Ecto-1 set and the house from The Simpsons, a design that folds open, letting you check out the iconic living room, kitchen and more inside. But then of course there were also some hot ticket items that weren’t ready just yet so couldn’t be photographed, but you can catch full descriptions of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and Guardians of the Galaxy products after the jump.

The movie-specific Ninja Turtles display featured three items.  The Turtles’ lair set-up included minifigures of Leonardo riding a skateboard and Donatello donning what looked to be night vision goggles.  The building was a two-story structure with a slide for easy ground floor access on one side.  One small detail worth noting is a gold sword that slid underneath the ground floor, presumably for hiding.  The second package came with two vehicles, a large van and a smaller truck.  The truck belonged to the April, Leonardo and Raphael minifigures and the van to two Foot Soldiers and a character that could possibly be Minae Noji who’s rumored to play Karai.  That larger van opens up along the side, revealing an extensive laboratory including tiny bottle cap-like pieces representing the ooze.  The final set included yet another vehicle, a green Humvee of sorts for Raphael and Michelangelo.  We’ve also got a Foot Solider manning a security tower attached to a drive-thru gate.  In between that gate and the Turtles is a fourth character trapped in a chair, possibly Will Arnett’s Vernon Fenwick, suggesting that the sequence of play is meant to be the turtles driving up to a Foot facility to rescue Vernon who’s trapped inside.

Guardians of the Galaxy got three Lego sets as well.  There was a 665-piece version of The Milano with Gamora (Zoe Saldana) at the controls inside while Star-Lord (Chris Pratt) floated nearby with a laser in hand so that the two could battle Ronan the Accuser (Lee Pace) in his own smaller ship side by side.  A second set called Nowhere Escape Mission showed off a three-minifigure-high Groot (voiced by Vin Diesel) as well as a Rocket Raccoon (voiced by Bradley Cooper) riding in a bubble-like vehicle.  The centerpiece of the set was a two-story brown and gray structure with Sakaaran manning a laser on the second floor.  The box art put the set on a dirt floor surrounded by trees suggesting that the movie action could take place in some sort of forest clearing.  Last up was the Starblaster Showdown package featuring a blue and yellow ship with a Nova officer inside.  Star Lord is again seen floating outside the vehicle, but this time he’s holding a simple, grey ball.  Across the way is the enemy component of the set, a small black, brown and grey ship with noticeably thin wings belonging to Sakaaran.

The  LEGO Ghostbusters Ecto-1 is going to retail for $49.99 (US) and it will be in stores in June.

Hopefully we’ll have images of those to show you soon, but for now, check out the rest of the Lego line-up in the ones below.
