Recently on display at Toy Fair in New York, the 2013 LEGO Lone Rangers sets look pretty nice. I have to admit, I don’t have high hopes for the film itself, but do look forward to having LEGO Lone Ranger minifigures. All these sets should be on store shelves in April.
79111 Constitution Train Chase
- $99.99 USD
- 699 pieces
The train itself looks really nice, and it has a great assortment of interesting minifigures. The set seems to be on the expensive side. I’ll personally wait to get this if I can find it at 30% off.
79109 Colby City Showdown
- $49.99 USD
- 587 pieces
This is the set I’m most looking forward to. It has a great price/piece ratio, and has lots of windows, dark green bricks, and brick bricks.
79110 Silver Mine Shootout
- $69.99 USD
- 644 pieces
Not sure how I feel about this one. Decent piece count, and great colors, but I’m not sure how useful the pieces will be in those colors. Looks like it will probably be a favorite among LEGO landscape modelers.
79108 Stagecoach Escape
- $29.99 USD
- 279 pieces
Red doors! Always nice. Most of the LEGO Lone Ranger minifigures seem to be really specialized; very unique. Because of these unique molds, I question if they’ll have much usefulness outside of LEGO Lone Ranger creations…
This looks like another gem in the LEGO Lone Ranger line. Good price/piece ratio and a nice looking model with lots of useful bits. And three new style horses!
79107 Comanche Camp
- $19.99 USD
- 161 pieces
I gotta say, this set does nothing for me. Looks like you’re paying a lot for a plastic teepee. It has some tan and dark tan pieces, but not enough to make me take a second look at this one.
79106 Cavalry Builder
- $12.99 USD
- 69 pieces
Interesting that LEGO is actually marketing this one as an army builder. Might have to pick up a few. Great price for 4 minifigures, a horse, and a cannon.
What are your thoughts on the LEGO Lone Ranger sets? I think I’m pleasantly surprised by what I’ve seen.
