    Lord of the rings sets returning?

    You might be right. The Viking CMF's helm mold is a perfect copy of Eowyn's.
  2. I noticed Hot wheels blind bags have a clear patch the size of a paper punch on a back lower corner of the bag, so if you really want to, you can see what car is in it.

    Manor Von Barron Discussion

    Making this building *the actual former home* of the Baron makes no sense in the fairground/themepark setting. Even the elevator was the Baron's design?

    Manor Von Barron Discussion

    I really liked this, but am having serious 2nd thoughts about actually getting it. I guess I would really like it to be more an actual haunted house, like others have said. There's enough vertical space to put in another floor without adjusting the structural build, and the elevator could be replaced with a staircase to the attic. The organ would be tricky. Maybe someone will do a really good mod I can follow to take out the ride aspect.

    Horror/Spooky Themes

    They are also releasing *2* pirate ships this year that both officially convert into a structure/hideout/pirate base after many years without a pirate ship at all. Indeed, you'd think they would have figured out how to space this stuff out a little bit better by now.

    LEGO Hidden Side 2020

    Super cool castle. Gonna combine mine with the MF one. Annoyed that HS is getting so many cooler sets than Scooby-Doo.

    New LotR action figures make me hopeful for Lego

    Just that: the ruins easily pass for the ruins of Osgiliath, and a molded fellbeast was canceled in favor of a more traditional dragon. 6 figs makes for a nice bp as well. They've said they will sometimes use unproduced set designs in future or different lines.

    The new viking helm is a dead ringer for Eowyn's. Color it brown with a little more gold printing and you're there. It's actually possible that the helm is actually a prototype of hers from an old canceled set. There was a rumor that 2013's Dragon Mountain was just a retheme of a canceled Battle of Osgiliath set w/fellbeast.

    I think the only reason lego decided to approve the concept is because *they* had the idea of making it convert into a functional pirate ship. Without that added feature, I would virtually guarantee that the original idea would never have been approved.

    I'm sure lego wil sell at least 5x the number of sets by making this an awesome pirate ship that turns into a fort, rather than a fort made from some remnants of pirate ships. I would not have purchased the original ideas set, but can't wait to buy this. As an aside, I was about to buy a playmobil pirate ship for my kids. I bet lego misses out on a lot of sales by not regularly having castles or pirate ships in their line. They wouldn't need entire themes for them to sell well.

    Speaking of cannons, only 2 cannons is disappointing, the original had 4.

    Future Castle Sets?

    If a whole theme is too much right now, I think lego should do a big one-off, Creator 3-in-1 castle set. You could have a traditional lego walled castle design, plus one that is more a large, multi-storied furnished keep, and then a design for a couple smaller, fortified house style designs.

    Scooby-Doo retirement?

    Still a lot of crossover appeal they left on the table with this theme. SD Haunted Castle! SD Pirate Ship! SD Old West Ghost Town! SD Spooky Carnival!
  14. Hogwarts castle is confirmed to be in the next FB film. I vote for that to be the the big direct to consumer set, with the individual fig packs allowing you to populate it from the era of your choosing.
  15. Lego probably decided to make it a mystery after test screening the new figures with children, and finding that they didn't like the highwayman, and that moms were actually put off by his appearance. I only half kid.
