    Future Constraction Sets?

    Gutted that a 501st Clone Trooper was on the cancelled slate, and we even got prelims for it... I wonder if Constraction and CCBS will have any place in LEGO's future lineup now. When was the last time we even got a CCBS element in a system set, minus the odd armor detailing here and there? Even the remake of Ninjago's Thunder Raider wiped the set of any trace of CCBS like it had in 2014.
  2. It's high time for an updated gunship, not to mention the possibility of the phase II clone becoming more prevalent in sets (bugs me how the plain one was only in an advent calendar and a wave 1 microfighter), as well as clone wars minifigures with normal faces, especially Ahsoka and Maul. Let's hope Lego will give us a good number of Clone Wars sets in the coming waves... (Not to mention it's the perfect time for a 501st BP)...

    LEGO Hidden Side 2020

    Yeah, if anything for me it was really cool to get a non-production color set of parts, just really strange as that rarely, if ever, happens.

    LEGO Hidden Side 2020

    Did anyone else get spring yellowish green Hidden Side ghost accessories instead of transparent green in some of the new sets? The instructions, box art, and official images all show these components as transparent, but oddly enough, I received some in a solid color. The subway is the only set I’ve gotten so far that has the accessory pack in the seemingly wrong color. Is this a factory mismold? https://imgur.com/gallery/aFVzBOK

    LEGO Hidden Side 2020

    I believe this is because the soul artifacts were centered around the ghosts being forced to bring Lady E back - now that she’s in the “Into the Hidden Side” set, there is no need for any more soul artifacts I guess. Too bad, as getting cool recolors of existing parts was nice

    LEGO Ninjago 2020

    That being said, sets take a lot of time to develop, test, and put into production, and what I’m speculating is that there potentially could have been a draft of the script they were going for that ended up with Zane dead, but they backtracked not necessarily last minute, but late enough that changes to the sets couldn’t be made. It would explain the weird editing/non-conclusion to the final episode, where Zane is magically back to normal and faces no consequences or repercussions for his actions, and his absence in the sets. Now, if S12 starts off with him being unable to travel to this digital world for story reasons and explores something unique in terms of his story, I’ll take this back - but the image of him in a suit just like the rest of the ninja suggests otherwise. As for the 2020 sets, if you are in the US and haven’t found them yet, my local Kohl’s was stocking every $20 and under 2020 Ninjago set, and you can even check online and do in-store pickup to get the 2020 sets you want.

    As an aside, does anyone know if the sets supposed to come out on December 26, or January 1? I know S@H says Jan 1, but it also says that for Hidden Side, which in a press release were stated to come out on Dec 26, so I’m not sure. Located in the US and been trying to find them at Targets to no avail.

    A new magazine was just released and it shows a picture of Digi-Zane, the one figure missing from this wave. I wonder if this means we will be getting more sets in this style, if there’s a previously unheard of retailer exclusive, or if the rumored disconnect between the show supposed to have killed him off but changed their mind and the change not reflecting in the sets is true... Edit - ninja’d, but yeah, pretty strange how he’s not in any set so far.

    Yeah, but in the old Legacy outfit, not the new redesign for Rebooted/Tournament. Seems odd to include a second Lloyd in the Rebooted-Based Thunder Raider and not a new Zane

    The Best and Worst of 2019

    Best Theme: Don't know anything at all about the game or story, but going with Overwatch. A really impressive lineup of insanely detailed minifigures, new molds, and really cool mech builds that were somehow priced really well too. Add a triple-molded bigfig into the mix, and I'm sold. Best Minifig: Ice Emperor from Ninjago. Really slick dual-molding for the Helmet/Armor and overall a great concept and execution of an evil Zane. Best Set: 75810 The Upside Down. Really interesting and unorthodox design from a license I never expected to see in LEGO form. Worst Theme: Hate to say it, but Marvel Superheroes. It seemed like the theme was really at odds with itself: the majority of the sets had builds ranging from good (Quinjet) to decent (Molten Man, War Machine Buster) to unnecessary (Avengers Bike, Helicopter, HQ), but with largely really, really unimpressive and undetailed minifigures. The Quantum suit figures were a complete joke, and it sucks that for certain dead characters like Cap and BW, it will be a while until we get MCU suits from this film, if ever. At the same time, we had the Hall of Armor set, jam-packed with amazing minifigures and an Iron Man fan's dream, but with a really boring and lackluster/repetitive build. As much as I like Marvel and collected all the sets, it was a real mixed bag for me, and the lack of a good D2C or bigger adult-oriented set was the final nail in the coffin. Worst Minifig: Probably Happy Hogan; I understand not wanting to make new prints, but there were a bunch of preexisting recent hair and head combos that are far, far better than the weird, beardless, generic official one. This isn't even a concept art/MCU being secretive issue; dude's been around since 2008 and looks basically the same in all his appearances. Worst Set: The Star Wars "Action Battle" sets are clearly not targeted at me, so I won't fault them for that, but it seems like a strange gimmick to put such a heavy focus on those ancient Technic competition cannons and I can't help but feel like they took up slots where more interesting Star Wars stuff could have been put out. 2020 Most Anticipated: Aside from what's already been revealed, like Gamer's Market or Mandalorian Battle Pack, I'm super curious to see how those rumored busts for Star Wars and Marvel turn out, as well as the strange "Leaf" and "Zebra" adult-oriented themes as well as the cryptic Bionicle 2020 hints Faber has been dropping heavily on his Instagram.

    More upset/perplexed about a lack of Grimfax (Especially with three General Vex figures scattered throughout) as that would really only require a reprint; the helmet is molded in the correct colors already. Would have liked to see Sorla or Kataru as well, although the latter is understandably far less likely due to the new mold...

    Oohnorak

    Love the very organic look of the model, and the fact that some semblance to Rhotuka has still been kept. Ingenious use of Slizer/Throwbot visors as well.

    LEGO Ninjago 2020

    No, it was just a leaked set name and item number, hence why I was speculating whether or not there would be more than one exclusive minifigure.

    LEGO Ninjago 2020

    No, apparently it's a new minifig pack as well, like Clutch Powers, the Skylor/EMs pack, etc

    LEGO Ninjago 2020

    There's a new four pack coming out apparently, similar to the Clutch Powers one this year - let's hope it includes more than one exclusive minifigure this time
