What is the best place to find the most recent, hot info and pictures of upcoming sets? I want to see what’s coming out next year!! Is there a forum or a website that has scans or photos of sets that have not been announced officially yet by LEGO? I don’t mind if the pictures are blurry. Just steer me in the direction of a place I can add to my bookmarks and check every now and then to see what cool lego stuff is eventually coming my way.

Dear Bobby,

A variety of sites posted leaked product images and discussed leaked information regularly in the past.  Most will remove this information if requested by TLG.

http://www.brickset.com/

http://www.brickshelf.com/

http://www.e-klocki.com/

http://www.eurobricks.com/forum/

Other fan sites have policies guarding against spreading leaks since this information could be beneficial to competitor and clone companies.

Sincerely,

LFan

    Brickset’s policy is NOT to use leaked images, particularly if they are marked ‘company confidential’ and we act quickly to remove links to them in user comments.

    However, once images become available without watermarks they are fair game.

    We also have a policy of checking with representatives of LEGO before posting images that we are not sure about.
