    DC Superheroes 2022 - Rumors & Discussion

    It shouldn't be too surprising that there were no Black Adam sets. It's been reported that it initially received an R rating and it wasn't until several weeks before release that they were able to get it down to PG13 (and it's still plenty violent). Like others, I'm hoping that in the next year or two Lego will release some of the characters as 'guest stars' in other sets. However, there is a bright spot on the superhero horizon. The DCEU has been rebranded as The DCU with James Gunn and Peter Safran taking charge on Nov. 1st. We won't see anything under their leadership hitting theaters until as least 2024, but hopefully they can breathe new life into the DC universe, which in turn would hopefully lead to more DC Lego sets.

    Wizarding World 2022 - Rumors & Discussion

    The term "HP Experience" brings to mind app based sets like Hidden Side and Vidiyo. I hope that's not the case.

    Q&A: Lego City Survey

    I said a modular Zoo (which technically would be more than one set, but lets Lego know what I would like).

    Lego City 2022 Rumours, Leaks, Information And Discussion

    According to Promobricks the Barn set is 49.99 euros, which should be the same in US dollars. Looking at the link you provided they also state that 60345 is 49.99 but Promobricks says 29.99 (Promobricks also list all 3 farm sets 60344, 60345, and 60346 as being released July 1, not June 1).

    2022 Friends Rumours, Leaks, Information And Discussion

    According to Promobricks it's 99.99 euros, which means it should be the same in US dollars. They are also listing a June 1 release.

    2022 Friends Rumours, Leaks, Information And Discussion

    Andrea's Theater School does look like a great set. I'm going to have to get one just to MOD it into a Muppets Theater to hold the new CMF figures.

    Latest news about Lego animal moulds

    That's what the reports are saying: 18+ diorama set - hence the brick-built T-rex. It's supposed to be revealed along with 2 JW sets tomorrow (or today since it's after midnight), so we should know soon!

    Latest news about Lego animal moulds

    I doubt it since the scene is said to portray the T-rex wrecking one of the Ford Explorers. By that point rexy had already eaten the goat.

    LEGO Spice Girls Tribute (40548)

    Hmmm.....<wonders how to get Matthew Ashton to become a hardcore DC Superheroes fan>
  11. I saw them behind the counter at a Barnes and Noble today.
  12. That is correct. Which is why I believe the fourth series for the coming year will probably be this women's soccer one-off. However, it should be available in all markets (unlike Team GB and DFB) since LEGO is no longer doing regional exclusives. I also wouldn't mind being wrong about this since I would like to see four series per year (especially with series now coming with only 12 figures).
  13. Wasn't there an announcement or leak earlier this fall that LEGO was partnering with a sports league (women's soccer?) in 2022? I figured that the fourth CMF would be for that, just like Team GB in 2012 and the mens soccer CMF in 2016.

    VIDIYO - Universal Music 2021

    Today I found Bandmates series 2 at Walmart. They weren't in the Lego aisle; they were near the Christmas section, in the main aisle in a blue cardboard display with some other Lego ($10.00 sets, polybags and Marvel cmfs). They weren't in the display box - they were all loose (so no taking one row of the box to get a full set).
  15. The new Monkie Kid set 80032 Chang'e Moon Cake Factory has a new hairpiece in black with a crescent moon decoration. I wonder how it would look on the moon warrior?

    Harry Potter 2021 - Rumors & Discussion

    That's good to know. My guess would be that with the current delays in shipping worldwide, LEGO isn't sure that the sets can get to their intended destinations in time for an October 25th promotion.

    VIDIYO - Universal Music 2021

    They weren't on the shelf at my local LEGO store so I asked an employee if they were going to carry them. He said they received a memo from corporate stating that Walmart would be the only store in the US to sell Bandmates series 2. If true, that is going to be a headache.

    DC Superheroes 2021 - Rumors & Discussion

    While technically true, does it matter? I think most people consider all 109 episodes to be under the umbrella of Batman: The Animated Series (in fact the Blu-ray collection labels BTAS as BTAS season 1, The Batman and Robin Adventures as BTAS season 2, and The New Batman Adventures as BTAS season 3). If LEGO were to give us sets and/or a CMF series for BTAS I would hope they would be free to choose material from all episodes (and things like Mask of the Phantasm). Unfortunately, I don't think LEGO will give us BTAS next year, but i'm crossing my fingers that I'm wrong.

    DC Superheroes 2021 - Rumors & Discussion

    If the Klarion minifig is a tie-in to anything, I'm hoping it will be a recognition of the 30th anniversary of Batman: The Animated Series. Lego sets and/or a CMF series celebrating what many fans consider the best iteration of Batman and his world would be most welcome.

    Lego City 2021 Rumours, information and discussion

    It's two eggs, one upright and one on it's side. The upright one has the reptilian eye print that leaked awhile ago. I'd love to see Lego make a hyena. Then Harley Quinn could be reunited with her 'babies'.

    VIDIYO - Universal Music 2021

    Nice list. Two missing in action: Zombie Dancer and a stage for Tropicon. As for each genre being limited to 6, I wouldn't think so. That would mean if we get sets in 2022 there wouldn't be any new figs for Candy Pop, K-Pawp, Monster Metal or Pirate Punk, and I just can't see that happening. I really want to see more figs for the Discowboy genre. Figures like a Rodeo Clown Dancer, Horse Fiddler, Bull Drummer, Cow Keytarist, Coyote DJ, etc.

    VIDIYO - Universal Music 2021

    My box was a complete reversal of that image. Instead of the Ice Cream guy being at the very front and the Werewolf at the back, the Werewolf was in the front and Ice Cream guy in the back (with all the minifigs in between being reversed too - like a mirror image).

    VIDIYO - Universal Music 2021

    Vidiyo is its own thing and won't be taking any of the standard cmf slots. Those are: January 1: Series 21 CMF May 1: Looney Tunes CMF Sept. 1: Marvel CMF In March the Vidiyo theme will release 43101 Bandmates series 1 cmf at $4.99 and 6 Beat Box sets at $19.99. In June it appears there will be 2 more Beat Box sets plus 5 regular type sets (I don't know what they will be but have read that at least one will be a large stage). Finally, in October there is set 43108 which is listed as 12 pieces (my guess is that it will be Bandmates series 2). My knowledge of sets and release times comes from Promobricks (guesses are my own). The red panda is right below the shark, next to the banshee. The yellow figure you are talking about has been called a tiger by some, but from the photo of the box front I think it's supposed to be a cheetah.
