LEGO sets are loved by lots of people across the world and LEGO fans are always waiting for LEGO’s new releases.
They come in small and simple sets, while others are large and complex, with some reaching up to more than 5000 pieces which can be very complicated to be built, especially for those who are new to LEGO.
This year LEGO releases lots of brilliant sets from the Star Wars, Creator – Expert, LEGO exclusive, Architecture, Harry Potter and LEGO City series that attracts my attention.
My favourites are the James Bond Aston Martin DB5, the Bugatti Chiron, the Statue of Liberty, the Roller Coaster, and the Hogwarts Castle.
Listed below are some of the top new releases from LEGO this year, including the ones which are due to be released soon.

There are lots of discarded flip-flop slippers washed up on Kenya beaches everyday.
A small company in Nairobi is collecting those discarded footwear and recycling them into colourful and cute toys.
To me, it’s a very nice idea for it won’t cause extra pollution from factories to make new toys.
