You’re ok with things being stolen? That’s despicable.

If some of the bigger LEGO channels/blogs post about it before it being officially revealed, it seems they are ok with this particular "leak".

They all say Found on Ebay, like it truly was. How it got there, is an entirely different story.

MandRProductions apparently bought one copy of Apocalypseburg and is going to build and review it this weekend. Lego is not going to be happy about that.

The LEGO Movie 2 Emmet's Piece Offering (30340)

 

Source: Brick Fan

Emmet just murdered the queen, turned her into an art project for his girlfriend, and is hiding his insanity behind the standard always-smiling minifigure face.

We need more of this type of true love in the world!

Some of the minifigure parts in the D2C set could actually be quite useful for Castle builds.

Nope. Wouldn't be surprised if he got removed from the ambassador program (and rightly so, since he's making profit of stolen property). But I don't think he's going to cry and whine about it like BrickQueen does

If he knowingly buys something from the grey market(I'm sure everyone here knows it's not supposed to be released yet), that's not quite right. 
I mean talking about the image which is on public domain is one thing but buying a product that is quite obviously stolen and benefiting the supposed thief is a different matter altogether.
This encourages the thief to continue with this activity. That being said, set is AWESOME.

The set in question was sold on two separate, publicly visible, eBay listings--how those two sellers acquired the set to sell is their own business, if it was though illegal means then it is up to eBay and the appropriate authorities to deal with. 

Once the images entered the public consciousness however, they are out there. Please do not call out other members as thieves for seeing something with their eyes on Instagram and then wanting to talk about it here.

Back to set discussion everyone. All set discussion.  

If you read my post, I never called x105black a thief, I just said it’s despicable that he’s ok with Lego being stolen.

Might I ask you a question?

What, exactly, do yòu intend to do about it? Heck; what do you expect any of us to do about it?

Because what you're doing right now amounts to telling us we're all horrible people for looking at pictures on the internet. How does this benefit anyone? 

You're entitled to your opinions, and this is a forum of public discourse. But if all you have is insults for your fellow AFOL and TFOL, please, keep them to yourself

I’m not attempting to insult anyone, if you’re offended that’s your problem I’m just pointing out facts. 

What do I intend to do about? I intend in having conversions with Lego and as I previously stated screenshot the evidence and send it Lego’s way.

As Ben Shapiro says “Facts don’t care about your feelings.”

Can we please just stop whining about leaks and continue with a normal discussion?

The sources of leaks are wrong, since the leaked figures/sets are almost always illegally obtained. But we're all in a way profiting of them, since it gives us something to talk about. And be honest with yourself, without these leaks this forum wouldn't nearly be as big as it is now.

And as LEGO fans we can't do anything about leaks going online, so there's no need to call out other people on it. 

Also, reporting people to LEGO will only enlarge the problem J4ck. You're reporting people who send the leaks around, why? They haven't stolen anything and therefore aren't doing anything illegal...

In respect of the mods, shall we move this to DMs? I’m more than happy to carry on discussing it.

And you know, what's even more funny*, another LEGO youtuber even admitted to buying one of the Ebay sets.

* Doesn't mean I support putting the physical thing for sale, or buying it, not to mention reviewing it.

People know where these sets come from, they’re just turning a blind eye. So sad.

Don't think that's okay at all. Buying it is directly supporting leaks much moreso then a picture that already went viral.

The Apocalypseburg set is really cool, and I'm glad the location and citizens get covered extensively! Superb figure designs, they look.. how should I word it... super tough! :wink: The Statue of Liberty (most notably the shoulder and arm) seems to rely quite a bit on large specialized parts for its shaping, which contrasts with the finer, denser builds of the living containers. Anyway, what's really impressive is how the set appears to have an overall non-rectangular grid, closed up (complete and displayable) for the full 360 degrees, while also providing interior and connectivity of the levels from ground to top. 

I don't know if this was mentioned already, but the barbed wire is back (look next to the cloth curtain), for the first time since 2010:sweet:

Certainly looks like an impressive set. Can't wait to see all the interior details.
