My son and I are already playing with our LEGO Indiana Jones playsets… okay, he’s only 8 months old, so most of the playing is being done by your’s truly. In addition to more Indiana Jones sets coming this year, LEGO has also announced new sets from its other licensed toy line, including Speed Racer, and you don’t want to miss the new Batman line that will feature the first Harley Quinn minifig.

LEGO momentum grows with new licensed lines in 2008 as LEGO INDIANA JONES™ and LEGO SPEED RACER™ hit the bricks. Eight INDIANA JONES sets – four classic and four inspired by the May 22 release of Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull, will appeal to collectors of every age. As the classic SPEED RACER property rolls into theaters for its first-ever live-action film debut, so will four build-and-race LEGO playsets inspired by the ultimate racer and his competitors.

Recreating the classic franchise and the forthcoming television series, LEGO STAR WARSâ„¢ excitement only gets stronger in 2008. Classic vehicles, like the AT-AP and Hailfire Droid are followed by five models, complete with all new minifigure characters, inspired by the groundbreaking new STAR WARS: THE CLONE WARSâ„¢ animated series, which is expected to have its television debut this year.

The wacky adventures of LEGO SpongeBob SquarePants continue with two new additions – Bikini Bottom Express and Rocket Ride, featuring the new minifigure, Sandy Cheeks. Trouble is brewing in Gotham City™ with four new BATMAN™ sets, including the introduction of Harley Quinn™ as a minifigure.
