LEGO Galaxy Squad
A new bugs in space LEGO theme for 2013
LEGO Galaxy Squad is a new LEGO theme that we were expecting for 2013. But there are already sets available from this bugs in space theme.
From what I can piece together the theme involves human spacemen in colored teams (red, green etc) who must battle ialien bugs to defend the galaxy.
So we'll be getting cool bug vehicles and humanoid bug minifigures - very good. My kids are fascinated by bugs so I can see this range really appealing to them.
This will be the replacement for the Alien Conquest LEGO theme so give us a new set of space heroes and alien enemies.
I'll be updating this page as I find our more about LEGO Galaxy Squad.

LEGO Galaxy Squad on eBay
LEGO Galaxy Squad isn't released until 2013, but you may find some sets or minifigs available early on eBay.
Is LEGO Galaxy Squad Official?
Well, there has been a small hint towards this theme from LEGO - some artwork appeared in a comic strip in the LEGO Club magazine that shows alien bugs.
What is more, a Toys R Us store in Canada is reported to have put Galaxy Squad sets on it's shelves for sale - you can see LEGO Galaxy Squad pictures showing the sets in the store.
At time of writing it is also possible to see the LEGO Galaxy Squad product description in German on Amazon.de - see here for links.
And BrickShop.nl is reporting the names and Euro prices of the sets.
So it looks pretty likely. I'll be looking out for more official information from LEGO.
LEGO Insectoids (retired)
This isn't the first time that LEGO has developed a space bugs theme. The now retired LEGO Insectoids range featured bugs and spiders in space.
