Lego City sets have been the foundation of Lego since it’s inception and the theme replaced the similarly themed “Town” sets in 2005. Lego City sets feature life in large towns and cities as kids and their parents would experience them.

The Lego City sets are made up of sub-themes like Airport, Construction, Farm, Fire,Police, Space and Train.

Lego Catalog Summer 2012 – Lego City Sets

The Lego City Summer 2012 sets have been showing up in stores for some weeks but we finally have a look at the catalog for these latest releases which presents the new sets against beautiful “natural” environments.

I’m not entirely sure if this is a locally, Australian produced, catalog but my son and I have great fun going through each time looking at the sets in situ and also finding all the errors.

This catalog seems to have more than it’s fair share of problems and I’m wondering if it was rushed?

Anyway, gripes aside, here are the latest Lego City Summer 2012 sets in all their cataloged glory:
