As part of the American International Toy Fair going on in New York City, LEGO invited press to the Javitz Center, known for housing NY Comic-Con, to preview its upcoming toy lines. Everything from LEGO DUPLO to the 'LEGO Movie' line was introduced in a big reveal of 246 sets. While we've already detailed one of the coming debuts for 'Guardians of the Galaxy,' here's just some of what was shown from the coming 30th anniversary set for 'Ghostbusters,' the new 'Star Wars Rebels' figures and more.

Hasbro invited press to its 2014 Entertainment Brand Preview for the American International Toy Fair in New York City this weekend, during which time the brand debuted all its toy lines hitting shelves this coming year.
Among the offerings were 'Transformers 4,' 'The Amazing Spider-Man 2,' 'Captain America 2' and the animated 'Star Wars Rebels' TV series. We were on hand to snap a ton of pics, and while we already detailed the coming merchandise and promo art for Marvel's 'Guardians of the Galaxy,' here are some of the other toys we're excited about.
'Star Wars' animated TV follow-up 'Star Wars Rebels' won't premiere until the fall, but after we met our Han Solo-esque "Cowboy Jedi" Kanan, the new series wants to introduce us to its Luke Skywalker, as well. Meet young Lothal con artist Ezra, our introductory link to the world of 'Star Wars Rebels'!
We've been excitedly devouring every scrap of news to come out of the forthcoming 'Star Wars' animated series, 'Star Wars Rebels,' but what of all the unreleased material from 'Star Wars: The Clone Wars'? Fans of the now-defunct series are in for some good news, as the "Lost Missions" will hit Netflix in their entirety in March, along with the complete series collection and director's cuts of seasons 1-5!
Upcoming 'Star Wars' animated series 'Star Wars Rebels' remained secretive even through its first character reveal, but at long last we have our first major protagonist, Jedi, and voice actor to boot. Prepare to join the 'Star Wars Rebels' with newly-confirmed voice actor Freddie Prinze Jr., giving life to the ponytail-wearing "cowboy" Jedi knight, Kanan!
The upcoming animated 'Star Wars Rebels' TV series has kept production expectedly tight to the point where we've only learned of the casting of a major villain and a feisty R2 unit. But where we thought the series might launch later this year, 'Rebels' may have a far bigger debut this summer. A new report suggests that 'Star Wars Rebels' will first release a feature-length premiere, followed by additional shorts and a proper fall 2014 debut!
'Star Wars' forthcoming animated series 'Star Wars Rebels' has been keeping pretty coy with its character and plot specifics, though at least one overarching theme has been inescapable: The Empire is everywhere! A new round of promotional posters for the buzzworthy new series have emerged, tasking the galaxy's finest to join up and serve on the imperial side.
The other day 'Star Wars Rebels' lifted the veil just high enough to introduce us to the "Ghost" crew's feisty R2 unit "Chopper," but as tends to be the case with major blockbusters, now LEGO has delivered a much more revealing look at the new series with fresh images of the group's Millennium Falcon-like ship, and more!
While 'Star Wars Rebels' has nothing on the secrecy inherent to 'Star Wars: Episode 7,' fans of the eagerly anticipated animation follow-up to 'Star Wars: The Clone Wars' have only thus far been treated to a solitary character. Now, the Dave Filoni-helmed 'Rebels' series chronicling the period between trilogies has unmasked our first heroic character, along with a few new details of the series' Outer Rim setting.
Chief among the excitement for 'Star Wars Rebels' is its ability to plumb the depths of periods mostly unexplored on film, particularly between the time between trilogies wherein the Empire cemented its power. The Imperials will be at their full strength when 'Star Wars Rebels' debuts later this year, and we've got the latest photo of classic Stormtroopers in action under the Inquisitor!
