The neck can bend up and down and rotate (most likely a ratcheted technic pin joint, just like the mammoth head).

I very much hope the neck is shaped better than on the mammoth which was truncated in such a way that it left a large, flat area on the back-of-the-head but rounded withers, and a sizeable gap between them. Looked awful which is why I didn't get it.

And welcome Eliza Thornberry and her family too. :) 

I had no idea what that meant so looked it up. It means I'm old! :tongue:

Whaddyamean? There’s an ostrich, flamingo, owls, eagles, parrots, penguins ...🦅🦉🦩🦜

Are you very sure? There are no solid evidence to link modern birds to their “dinosaur family”. And you forget one speices: chickens. :)

Pity Nickelodeon went to Mega Brands. I'd love to have the Thornberrys in Lego.

Same here!

LOL. As a kid, I used to love that Wild Thornberrys tv show. 

Too bad, Nickelodadon is stuck with Mega Bricks. 

Funny thing, I remember Avatar theme was produced in mid-2000s.

I think the elephant might fare better, like the triceratops does with the frill , having the ears as a foil

I found an image of the back of one of the boxes and there is a shot - or render - from a different angle suggesting that the neck is indeed better than the mammoth’s. It’s still not certain, but seems that way.

Looks like the new friends (TV show) set comes with a dog, hen and a small bird all in white, to bad they did not make a duck mould for it:wink:

Yeah, surely even a white recolour of the rubber duck would have been better than the small bird?

Of course. But for this set - the part used wasn’t even the best they could

Probably for budgetary reasons, because the bird mould obviously already exists in white whereas the rubber duck doesn’t :shrug_oh_well:

Nah, no duck mold.  We can keep dreaming about a duck mold until it comes true...

An image of six of the new monkeys has surfaced, 3 Tan and 3 Dark Tan. The Dark Tan we've seen quite well, but now we have a better look at the Tan. I want.

Same here! I mean it’s really nic to have monkeys in different colors. So I could populate jungle with monkeys.

I wonder if those in USA can buy the animals from B&P before August since the sets are not released there even if they are much earlier in Europe :shrug_oh_well:

The delay looks to be a production availability issue, because Marvel is getting the same delay, so I think B&P may take even longer.

Imo this year TLG really overbild itself with offerings so many hillarious animals! :wub:

I hope that TLG will do the same next year, too! Since I'd like to get a seal, an orca and a big pot whale.

It’s so hard to predict what animals will show up where (which is part of the fun 🙃) ... yes to all of these, but I think the ‘pot whale’ is least likely (sperm whale In English, cachalot in french is the nicest name I think ;) )

I agree. 

Orca was supposed to be included in largest Artic set a few years ago but it was replaced with woolly mammoth tho! 

For forest, I would love to see bison, fox, white-tailed deer, raccoon, hedgehog, squirrel, and more. 

Of course, we know nohting about next year. Even we don’t know anything about new subtheme for City next year.

We are well over do for a proper squirrel mold. The city modulars are screaming for  some pigeons too.
