Mega Blok’s Power Rangers theme continues with the release of the Super Megaforce Sky Ship Showdown set (pictured above). The set is based on the Power Rangers MegaForce TV show that airs on Nickelodeon.
Also available on store shelves now is the new Adventure Force line from Mega Bloks featuring Police, Fire (Fire Station set pictured above) and Military themed sets. The new Adventure Force sets are now available at Wal-Mart and are priced between $9.97 and $49.97.
Mega Bloks Barbie has been considered Mega Brands answer to the wildly successful LEGO Friends theme. But it seems Mega Brands plans to attack the dominance of the LEGO Friends line on another front, with the release of a new theme, Mega Bloks My Life As.
Taken from a line of dolls available at Wal-Mart, the My Life As line features figures that are oddly enough less doll like compared to the figures in the Mega Bloks Barbie theme. The new theme from Mega Bloks is even odder given the fact that the my Life As dolls resemble and compete with those made by American Girl, which is owned by Mattel, who also owns the Mega Bloks. But given that only four sets of My Life As have been released, it may be too early to ascertain the motivation for its creation. The new Mega Bloks My Life as sets include:
The sets will be priced between $19.97 and $39.97.

A new series of Mixels is slated to be out next year. Each of the characters in the upcoming Series 4 release features a clever name, likely thought up by a McKinsey consultant (maybe by a younger Jørgen Vig Knudstorp?). Sets that will be part of the Series 4 Mixels line in 2015 include:
LEGO Creator returns in 2015 with a mix of animals and retailers. A colorful tropical parrot along with a frog will be one of the new creator sets released next year. Those critters will be joined by a Toy and Grocery shop, a set surely to whet the appetites of LEGO City fans. The two new sets are:
