    New Licensed Theme Rumor Mill

    I remember the video game era of the '90s, specifically the fighting game era, and just recalling rumors about Mortal Kombat... about Ermac, Reptile as a playable character in MK1, etc... rumors are not always based on "insider information" or actuality - many are based on ill-conceived fan assumptions.

    LEGO Hidden Side 2020

    Please... not these "Lego stole from this or that" again, especially as it relates to Ghostbusters. Stranger Things had the little dude as a ghostbuster first, not to mention and as already stated above, Ghostbusters and Scooby Doo came way before the craptastic of a theme.

    Will Hidden Side Age Well?

    Not when LEGO jumped the gun and already made the sets in the first place. I don't know if you've been paying attention to their corporate literature but LEGO is desperate and not in very good shape right now.

    Read the book's description. It says the TV series comes out in 2020

    LEGO Hidden Side 2020

    Is everyone aware these leaked books for the Hidden Side theme reveal a TV series coming next year? Hopefully it brings a better third wave and one that has better ghosts and not rely on the app for those. Still waiting on that large, terrifying teddy bear ghost. Book link: https://www.amazon.co.uk/Guide-Ghost-Hunting-Minifigure-Hidden/dp/1338613057 And in case Amazon deletes it: Step into the haunted town of Newbury and become an expert ghost hunter in this in-world guide based on LEGO Hidden Side toys and TV show! Plus, it includes a Hidden Side minifigure! The LEGO Group's newest IP, LEGO Hidden Side hits stores in fall 2019 with eight toy sets, followed by a TV series and even more toys in 2020! Kids can interact with these building sets using an augmented reality app that brings the models to life, using a smart phone or tablet camera to reveal a hidden world of interactive mysteries and challenges to solve. It's a whole new world of play! Welcome to the haunted town of Newbury, home of the LEGO Group's newest original IP. In this new series of adventures, kids will join brother-and-sister duo Jack and Parker as they work to track down and reveal ghosts in order to turn their haunted town back to normal, one ghost at a time. This guide will be narrated by the main characters of the toys and TV show, and work with the LEGO app for an interactive reading experience all about finding and capturing ghosts! Plus, it comes with a LEGO minifigure! FYI: If you live here in the USA you can usually buy, on the cheap, many LEGO/minifigure books from a store called Ollies. Maybe at Big Lots, I haven't checked. Dollar General/Family Dollar don't appear to sell Lego books yet. I think I have seen 1 or 2 at Gordmans.

    Will Hidden Side Age Well?

    Hate to say it but I called it! I said HS would be a fad theme and will lose relevance after the app expired, not to mention the slew of problems already discussed among us AFOLS. Had the sets been built more solid and less app-dependent it would have had a viable chance. Unfortunately LEGO invested too much money into an idea that business analysts said was a failure from the start and they are forcing themselves to release this junky Wave 2 to save face and make back all the money lost on this theme. The school would be way better if it were bigger. It's way too crowded, something LEGO has been doing. Bring back the Simpsons House or Haunted House. As for people saying MF won't age well... um, you do know most of our horror films from which MF derived are from the "gothic 30s" era right? I didn't like the steampunk component for that theme but it was still a solid monster theme where its rooms in its buildings or vehicles weren't crowded. All HS ever was is a way for LEGO to try and capture this Pokemon Go craze. Only in a safer way since the ghosts are in the set and they don't have to go outside looking for ghosts. Plus... and I have noticed this with LEGO... I feel like they will be getting the license back for the new Ghostbusters movie sets (Playmobil has it now) and they wanted a theme to carry interest into it. MF was actually more of a carry-over theme for Scooby Doo, since if you look at the original designs for the MF theme, it pretty much was Scooby Doo. Unfortunately those wacky color schemes don't mesh well with MF's seagreen colors.

    I'm not sure why links weren't posted since the leaked images are from Lego's server and not leaks but here they are: https://brickset.com/sets/year-2020?query=30000-30999 Love the hotdog stand. It will go well with the GB Firehouse. The cannon can go with all that El Fuego crap or with the Ghost Fair.

    How whem me and a lot of other people have said its a mod of the Scooby Doo lighthouse.

    Disappointing. I was hoping the Fair would be decent but am turned away. The lightjouse looks to be a solid build but practically the same one from Scooby Doo. I'll likely buy the tree portal for my forest. Not convinced yet on Ghost Fair.

    HIDDEN SIDE - 2019

    I've said that already... in one of the HS posts. As well as other fans.

    HIDDEN SIDE - 2019

    I can say that I am way more hyped for a few HS sets from the 2020 leaks than I am for 2019. The animated shorts I've seen are better than the sets. From poor box art design to there being a lot of things that don't make any sense (like the photo lab set) without having the app to fully understand it. I thought it was another Frankenstein set and realized it's a monster invading a ghost lab with 3D printing. Add to the fact these kids (the minifig kids) use their phones to zap ghosts in the real world... it's way too Pokemon Go for me. It's trying to be some kind of mashup of Stranger Things / Ghostbusters with a high school theme, not quite like Monster High but close. It doesn't do the trick. For the 2020 sets to work, they must be fully independent of the app. I mean they can include the interaction sticker but don't add things to the set (like the entire back of the ghost lab) that have no explanation to someone just looking at the set. That's why I really love the juice bar set. It stands alone great. You can leave it as a juice bar... and anyone knows it's at least a food booth. You can turn it into its haunted/spooky self... and to the lay person it looks possessed. But the "Ghost Lab?" Is it supposed to be a room for the high school because that'll be about the only thing that made sense for it. The graveyard doesn't even look like a graveyard. I still have the Zombies set from MF and the original Graveyard Duel from Harry Potter - those are graveyards. That is just a joke. The high school is crammed with too much in such little space. I know it's to save money but holy cow, give me some Leo bricks with my Lego accessories. The school bus... too bulky although I'm aware it's used to hunt ghosts. The diner looks like a shrimp shack I ran into on the north shore of Hawaii. Not someplace you really want to stop at. These are just a few examples of how the first wave fails. The second wave, with finally mixing a circus theme with horror, shows promise.

    HIDDEN SIDE - 2019

    Well this definitely makes the theme much more sppealing and interesting.

    HIDDEN SIDE - 2019

    Yes, according to the English translation from the article, which I posted above, they are fire ghosts.
