I have Stormer XL, and I'll probably wait for some sales for the rest of the summer sets.

Also, they added another "Omega Recon" report. I still can't figure out who/what the heck "Omega Recon" is, but at least they didn't have the horribly confusing "Alpha" bit.

Today I bought Core Hunter couse I got school scholarship :D He's pretty nice! So badass! He was sold for a little bigger price than It should be. It is 52 zlotes (around 13,40$).

Well, that's much better than "he was imprisoned together with his bike".

"Ultra-Mach Speed Cycle", eh. Flashy name, I like it :laugh:

Funny how they included the Wing Blades in the bike description. Aren't they supposed to be those huge gold Ninjago katanas SD wields? How are they considered part of the bike? :wacko:

Oh yeah, we discussed that, didn't we? =P. It was referenced in the latest mag issue too (where it was claimed that the designs themselves were stolen, not a prototype, but I'm generally more inclined to go with the website on this one.

Interesting to know there are more books and I guess Omega Recon Team means Rocka.

Nah, the Omega Recon guy is a different dude. He's following the Alpha 1 Team on their adventures, but whether or not it's a bunch of guys reporting for a single team or just one dude in general is something I don't know.

Also yaaaaaaaay more books.

Those are the same prelim descriptions that were originally featured for both of the first two books, if I remember correctly, in which case they probably aren't even plot-relevant. We may get more accurate descriptions in time, although I'm not totally sure since the description for Legion of Darkness implies it will have a lot of modern-day heroes, while the introduction to the preview in The Doom Box suggests that the story will be entirely a prequel about the origins of Alpha 1 Team. Of course, it could be that the synopsis given in The Doom Box is the inaccurate one.

They're especially unlikely since

After the seeing the spoiler I need to get me some of those books.

By the way, you might want to add some of the info from the book on HEROsector.

I'd like to do so very soon. But I've got quite a lot on my plate currently-- in addition to schoolwork, I'm in the process of writing several set reviews for The Ninjago Wiki, and I've got not one but two Ninjago graphic novels to work on articles for there. So when I do get free time when I happen to have those books available, I still have to be selective with my time.

I really should stop making excuses for not contributing to wikis, though. I haven't done any casual editing on either site in quite a while.

Back to work, slave.

But seriously, gotta learn what happens in those books, man.

C'mon, guys, do you want me to spoil the whole book for you? I'm reluctant to share everything in the book, but I guess I probably should since I don't know its publication status in Italy or other European countries.

Explaining how this event takes place would sound severely underwhelming without the context of the rest of the book, so be warned that major spoilers lie ahead. If you have any inclination to buy the book for yourself and don't want all the most suspenseful mysteries of the book revealed, read no further.

I don't like the whole
Spoiler
thing going on there, but the rest of the plot seems interesting enough.

I actually expected something more focused on Core Hunter's hobby- extracting cores and disabling Heroes. Something more focused on Core Hunter and Bulk. I know it's unlikely that LEGO would ever consider something so violent, but I would have liked to see Core Hunter disable Heroes sent to aid Bulk in his mission, then Bulk beat Core Hunter down and rip out his core! OR just shoot a hole through the Hunter. Either way, that would be bad-A. Am I right?
