    Marvel Superheroes 2020 - Rumors & Discussion

    How do we know for sure that this is Marvel, much less MCU? As much as I hope it will be, from what I understand, the only reason why people are suspecting this is Marvel is because the previous two D2C sets were DC-themed - but for all we know, it could be another 1989 Batman themed set to go along with the Batmobile and Batwing, such as an 89 Batcave akin to the massive scale of the classic series Batcave a few years back. If it is MCU, I'm really curious as to what it could be. I doubt they'd do a large Sanctum Sanctorum given that's mostly a Doctor Strange specific thing and they'd probably want to focus on Avengers. I don't see them doing Thanos's Sanctuary II warship as focusing such a large set on a villain-centric vehicle is a risk I doubt LEGO is willing to take. Avengers Campus, despite the alluring minifigure possibilities, is probably too boring of a build for them to do, although the whole quantum tunnel setup could make for a fantastic build if done right. That leaves... another UCS Helicarrier? Or maybe a UCS Avengers Tower, which despite not being super relevant in the MCU nowadays is still an icon of the MCU and they have made D2C sets in the past focusing on older MCU movies (i.e. the Ultron Hulkbuster). If it's not a traditional building or vehicle, the only other thing could be a display model, although it's almost certainly not a bust (too expensive) or mosaic (already covered, and set number/price point doesn't match). I guess it could be an Infinity Gauntlet, but I'm not sure if LEGO would dedicate a $300 set to it. If I had to predict, my money's on a large-scale Avengers Tower, but only time will tell.
  2. While I can't attest to this instance in particular, LEGO has been known to run closed "market test" surveys, and even can run market test ads in certain regions to gauge interest for products that don't even exist yet, like the recent Mindstorms car. I wouldn't be surprised if this was a packaging style they considered/are considering, but hopefully the very negative FOL community reaction to it has taught LEGO something - if anything, that image leaking has given them even more market research than they would have gotten with that one closed survey.

    Haha yes I changed my name to coincide with my YouTube channel but yes, I could definitely see it maybe being printed but at that point we’d still have a hairpiece that only applies to this new season sadly. Looking forward to seeing leaks of the figures!

    The headband looks great! I can imagine them reusing the movie Cole hair+headband piece for Cole, so they wouldn't need to make six new molds per ninja, but honestly it could go either way. And this means we will almost definitely get a silver movie Zane hairpiece - but with a headband, which is really a shame as a lot of fans have been looking for that to use for their own figures. We'll also be likely getting a face for Zane that's new but has face paint/markings - which is a shame as the extremely angry one really doesn't fit the character except for very specific circumstances.

    Thanks for commenting and checking them out! The next review for Makuta Miserix is up!

    Agreed, earlier this summer it took upwards of two months, but now it's getting a lot faster and is almost back to relatively normal speed, which is really nice.

    So bizarre how they chose to use the regular face and not a new print, given that she's clearly a lot older during that flashback portion of the show. It's also a little strange that they chose this over, say, future Kai or Zane, which had their full bodies shown and would fit in more with future Jay, but perhaps they're saving those for when they can do arm and leg printing again, which I would also prefer. Still, nice to get another missing figure variant!
  8. Huh! I have to say, I’m really pleasantly surprised! I was pretty let down by the TIE and figured all of the other cheaper sets would look like that, then LEGO pulls off this great-looking X Wing at such a lower price than before, and despite a simple and blocky body, the Shuttle isn’t half bad either.
  9. Apparently the gift box is only for stores in the Russian Federation, and might not even be official... so much for all the speculation then.

    LEGO Ninjago 2020

    Fair enough, I guess I'm just more excited for that one than, say, Kai's X-1 Ninja Charger, which is just the red sports car, for example. Hoping the Overlord dragon sells really well to show LEGO that villain-focused Legacy sets are viable!
  11. All we have is the official description, mentioning a "set based on one of the important battles" (likely one of the past Endor/Hoth/DSII GWPs), "the characters of the Saga" (probably some old minifig GWPs, although we haven't gotten one of them in a while so it beats me as to what this would be, and "exclusive gifts" (guessing it's the same as above). Given that BB-8 is on the box, we might get the BB-8 buildable polybag? But it's all pretty much conjecture at this point. Guessing this will be some sort of Christmas buy exclusive, although it's a bit of a shame they didn't release it with, say, the Cantina, as there aren't any new Star Wars sets coming out between now and the end of the year (the Child can already be pre-ordered today), so for fans caught up with the set releases I'm not sure what opportunities there will be to even get it.

    Harry Potter 2020 - Rumors & Discussion

    Having a very experimental winter wave plus a full nine set summer wave is a good sign for the theme, and it must be doing incredibly well to warrant this. It makes me curious as to what other licensed themes could potentially use a refresh and reinvigoration (cough LOTR cough), seeing as there's massive demand for Harry Potter with no new Fantastic Beasts movie currently out the the HP movies themselves getting older each year.

    LEGO Ninjago 2020

    My thoughts exactly - I was really feeling the classic Pirates vibe with that one, which is a good thing! I'm also curious to see why people don't seem to be liking Zane's Mech - from what I can tell, it has knees, and for a $60-70 set like that, it's a step in the right direction in my opinion. I was also pretty glad they didn't include the ghost mech this time around, as in the last set, that one ate up most of the parts budget and I'm curious to see what they can do with dedicated the full budget of the set to Zane's mech alone.

    Thanks so much for sending the doc! Shame about no discount, but at least it's more convenient given I was buying thousands of the same stud part for a mosaic.

    Harry Potter 2020 - Rumors & Discussion

    What are the odds of us getting expansions to Diagon Alley, like Gringotts? I keep finding it strange how arguably the most or one of the most iconic buildings was omitted from this set, other than the layout wouldn't quite work out. Are they saving it for the later movies as a standalone set with the dragon?
