  1. From the main Star Wars thread - 2018 stuff, I presume: And just so there isn't any doubt:
  2. Hi.  Thank you so much for the previous translations you have done.  I'm wondering if you could please translate Jim Spaceborn 2, judging by some of the pages it looks interesting.  Thanks for your time and consideration in this matter.  http://www.brickshelf.com/cgi-bin/gallery.cgi?f=556523

    And also how is the hunt for the rest of the Time Cruisers comics?

      Hey! I've been holding off on Jim Spaceborn 2 because I know there are English versions out there that might be scanned someday, but I guess it'd be something to take one sometime if I'm able. It's just the spaceborn stuff is a lot more time-intensive to translate than time cruisers! 

      With regards to the latter, there was a listing on eBay a while ago that may have had the missing comics, but it was out of my budget range so I had to pass it up. I'm still keeping a lookout for them, though. I'm sure someday I'll get a hold of the rest. :grin:

  3. At least in the US, all the episodes are available for viewing on the Elves website. Just go to videos, click through to the year you want and scroll down to "minimovies."
  4. Did we have the prices for the last jedi sets before? LEGO Star Wars 75526 - €19.99 - (£14.99, $19.99) LEGO Star Wars 75528 - €24.99 - (£19.99, $24.99) LEGO Star Wars 75529 - €24.99 - (£19.99, $24.99) LEGO Star Wars 75530 - €34.99 - (£29.99, $34.99) Looks like we have another larger model to look forward to.
  5. This is just idle speculation, but whenever I've been to the Lego aisle at different stores the shelves always seem packed with unsold Star Wars figures and I wouldn't be surprised if they've cut down the number of sets they are launching to better match demand.
  6. This is fabulous. I love the colors, and that parrot especially is top-notch. Some real nice parts usage with the Technic chain as dreadlocks and the nexo bot shoulder for the bottom of the beak.
  7. It can take a while for Lego to get prizes sent out. In this case especially, we don't know how far along the artbook was in production at the time it was announced. It could be a super last-minute thing that they need all the time they can get to put together. I'd give it another month or two before getting worried.
  8. Official pictures of the 2017 lineup on Brickset. They also have six more listed for the summer - not sure if that's news or not.
  9. I mean, I guess they could be fake, but they look pretty darn legit to me.

  11. They're distributing the DVD version, just like Netflix distributes the digital version. Warner Bros is in charge of Lego DVDs for the most part these days, but in 2009 - 11 or so it was Universal, and they seem to have held on to the vestiges of that contract. See their re-release of Clutch Powers last year or their re-release of (surprise!) The Legend Reborn this year. Them publishing something they didn't originally publish is new, but there's no reason to think it's a bootleg - unless the bootleggers have access to Universal's library of TLR material and also cared enough to make their packaging look authentic and even use the Universal logo.
  12. It isn't a bootleg. The DVD has Universal branding, and they published The Legend Reborn. They just reused assets they had lying around from that movie, because why bother when A) Bionicle is dead and B) the DVD seems to only be getting a limited Australia release. It reeks of "nobody wanted this, but it's some weird contractual obligation. let's get this over with and pretend it never existed"
  13. Oh, of course! That makes sense then.
  14. I just want to point out that compositionally, this image is very similar to the fake leaks from just a while ago - the ones with Sports, Cars and PoTC. Also in both cases, there are convenient reasons that no actual products are shown. Some of the wording in this one strikes me as rather unprofessional, too, but maybe Lego's standards for that kind of thing aren't as high internally. Since when has D2C ever been referred to as a part of the company, with the ability to "reveal" something? D2Cs are handled by the team that works on the actual theme (Creator, Star Wars, whatever it is). Also, the RRP is $2,699 dollars. Which is absurd, unless that somehow represents something different in a way I'm not aware of. I'm not convinced, but I guess we'll see!
  15. With regards to the kinda subpar animation, I wouldn't be surprised if this went into production on short notice when the movie was pushed back. They might not have had enough time to add as much polish as usual.
