LEGO Elves sets have always been a rich source of beautiful colours and interesting parts for builders who prefer to make their own creations. Five sets due for release in 2018 have been revealed, and there are some great new parts and colours to be found. The largest set, 41194 Noctura’s Tower & the Earth Fox Rescue looks to have a nice supply of Zombie Teal (a colour that is returning in 2018 after being ‘killed off‘ back in 2006). Let’s take a closer look.
41194 Noctura’s Tower & the Earth Fox Rescue
A closer look at the the tower shows a new kite-shaped, transparent part, decorated with Elves elemental icons.
Teal (also known as Dark Turquoise or Bright Bluish Green) parts include a 4×4 dish, Iron Fence 1X4X2 (Design ID 19121), Plate 1 x 1 with Tooth Vertical (Design ID 15070) and 1 x 1 x 6 Solid Pillar (Design ID 43888). It seems that the new archways we saw in the Disney sets also appear in this set in Dark Blue at the main entrance to the tower.
Many fans were excited to see a new leaf, officially known as Plant, W/Plate 1X1, No. 1 (Design ID 32607) appear in some Junior sets in Bright Green and it appears in Medium Lavender in this set. I also spotted a Lime minifigure triangular shield (Design ID 3846) and Pearl Gold 1×1 plate with rounded handle (Part 26047)
41193 Aira & the Song of the Wind Dragon
The Teal Cone 4 x 4 x 2 with Axle Hole (Design ID 3943) is a great part in this colour.
It looks as though there are 7 or 8 of the new Flower 1×1 (Design ID 24866) in Bright Light Blue and the aforementioned Plant, W/Plate 1X1, No. 1 (Design ID 32607) is present in Bright Green.
41192 Azari & The Fire Lion Capture
Another useful part appears in Teal in this set, Round 2×2 plates form the catapult’s wheels.
The Spider with Elongated Abdomen (Design ID 29111) has only appeared in Red up until now, so Bright Light Yellow is a new colour.
41191 Naida & The Water Turtle Ambush
The turtle’s shell has Round Corner 3 x 3 (Design 30357) and Wedge 4 x 2 Triple Left (Design ID 43710) in Dark Azure for the first time.
41190 Emily Jones & The Eagle Getaway
The Bat style wings are new in Transparent Yellow and appear in three of the other Elves sets above.
I haven’t counted Minidolls and their various accoutrements in the new items, so there will be other new parts to identify no doubt.
What other new parts or colours have you spotted in upcoming 2018 sets and would love to use in your own builds?
