Summer set names just hit instagram (from promobricks) half airport half water marine research. Was really hoping for a dock cargo, but at least we get a boat.

So, looks like this year's "exploration" subtheme will be marine-based eh? :thumbup: :shrug_oh_well:

So basicly Divers (2015) and Airport (2016) revisted, okay then.

Passenger Airplanes and larger Ships been missing from City for a while.

Oh wow! I thought airport wasn't supposed to be back until next year along with coast guard.

I guess my calculations were wrong. 

Disappointment intensifies. I was kinda hoping to see a Harbor or a construction site or something else that would utilize the new magnet piece. 

I guess I should've really been prepared. But honestly? Another explorers theme? It seems like City is too repetitive.

So is this the extent of the summer range or can we expect a few more sets beyond those listed above?

2015 Divers seemed to be one of those 'one-shot' kind of subthemes to me... I didn't expect LEGO to come back to it. Kind of a boring choice, really. 

Although, I happy they're doing Airport again.

I wouldn't say its boring! But it isn't really interesting as its marketed as just another explorer's theme. Its actually called Ocean Explorers according to Brickfans.com.

They actually brought it back early. For the past few airport waves, they've released them every five years. Its only been four since the last airport wave, which was in 2016.

Will these be the last City sets this year, or might there be something still to be revealed?

We still have the two town sets that need to be revealed and the two MDPs.

I hope there's more, no mention of people packs :cry_sad: 

Also Ski Resort came later in 2019.

I'm not too bothered about explorer subthemes, in fact I kinda like them (unless they repeat themselves). Jungle Explorers subtheme was great, 2014 Arctic was neat, and the Space sets weren't bad either. 

But I wasn't the biggest fan of the Deep Sea subtheme. None of the sets really stood out to me - except for the 60092 yellow submarine (pardon the pun). That was indeed an awesome set.

Yeah, I don't think those are all the sets. It's a weird list and there should be more sets.

But the last Marine theme was great with the big boat (60095). One of my favorite sets ever. And after the very nice looking Friends marine rescue theme I have high hopes. Just expecting more sets.

I'm pretty sure LEGO releases airport sets every three years. 

2007 - passenger transport

2010 - passenger transport

2013 - cargo subtheme

2016 - passenger transport

3-4 years yes, 2006 instead of 2007 tho .

So it's been 4 , 3 , 3 , 4 year inbetween in 2020. :thumbup:

I couldn't imagine a year without exploration subthemes from City, and nor would I want to see one without, as they're the only thing that keeps me interested in the theme.

Not at this point, I couldn't....and I wouldn't be surprised if I saw another wave of police sets next year.

Roughly translated from https://zusammengebaut.com/live-ticker-lego-news-toy-fair-2020-87064/

A red car can be loaded into the large passenger plane at the rear.

 

The Research Vessel is very large and darkblue and floats and apparently has waterproof stickers.

(wonder if it's the same hull as 2015, or maybe a return of the largest hull from 2007.)

6117617 4503919

Yellow buildings.

(I assume for the base).

Themed police is almost guaranteed inbetween regular City Police, so maybe a Police Boat theme for 2021 (last one was Prison Island 2016) , which came out 1 year after Deep Sea.

@TeriXeri @Digger of Bricks

As long as the City theme exists....from the 2010s onwards, we can gurantee a few things. 

  1. Police - surroundings may change, but the story stays the same! BORING!!!!!!
  2. Great Vehicles - those are actually interesting. Especially the ones in 2020
  3. Explorers or Expedition - guaranteed since 2014. However, they were still technically town subthemes back during the 90s and early 2000s. So I kinda understand why they are here. 
  4. Nothing New or Interesting - unless it has to do with the environment that the police are working in - the objective is still the same, what natural resources the explorers are studying, some great vehicles, the town sets and the annual mega sets

I'd hope it's the longer boat hull as we got the other one in dark blue last time.

The airport won't make up more than 10% of the set. If it's $100 set, the plane sounds like it's the big huge type, that would be $70 of the set at least right there.

I'm hoping it's a medium size plane so we get a building and not just a wall.

Let's hope one of the new ocean explorer set include some kind of marine life form.

*huh* Wait, I'm confused. Is it airport and plane in one set or both are separate sets?
