The 2013 Lego Friends Sets continue the theme’s diverse focus and colorful design sense.
While the last wave for 2012 seemed to focus on Horse related buildings and accessories, the first wave for 2013 seems to have no uniting theme, choosing to cover alot of interests. Presumably this approach is to gauge where the Friends theme will head into the future.
The Lego Catalog for Summer 2012 contains a whopping six pages of Lego Friends sets!
For a theme which only launched this year that is amazing and demonstrates how successful the sets have been with their target market (anyone who loves beautiful Lego designs!).
In comparison Ninjago also has six pages, Super Heroes takes up five pages, Star Wars covers an expected 10 pages and Lord of the Rings is stuck in at the back of the book (almost as an afterthought) with three pages.
If you are like me, then you love looking at the official Lego catalogs for their colors, designs and the way they integrate sets into Lego/CG backgrounds. So here are the Lego 2012 Summer Catalog pages featuring Friends sets (click on them for full sized images).
