  1. The Lego Ninjago Movie (2017)

    This is an aside, but the CMF Master Wu actually does have the printed arms, just not every other variant in the sets :)
  2. LEGO Ninjago 2018

    Had to resort to YouTube to find it. Since I do watch a number of Ninjago videos, it popped up in my feed, but seemed to be a screenshot originating from Instagram, a platform Iā€™m very much not active in. It has a giant ā€œ@kattman4ā€ watermark over it if that helps.
  3. LEGO Ninjago 2018

    YES!
  4. Oh my.... Today I learned of this technique. Thanks so much! Now off to the ironing board with dozens of capes I go...
  5. LEGO Ninjago 2018

    Yeah, I'm thinking this is the Spinjitsu variant and all the other ninja will get similar variants. Wait..... that's the exact variant that Tommy Andreasen debunked as a concept... huh.
  6. LEGO Ninjago 2018

    Thanks man! The villain looks really intriguing - I'm excited for 2018! I love the print detail and pink/purple color, something really uncommon to Ninjago villains. It looks great!
  7. LEGO Ninjago 2018

    Happen to remember who posted it?
  8. LEGO Ninjago 2018

    They aren't in the usual places, but I assume they'll show up soon. Was this 4chan?
  9. LEGO Ninjago Movie Videogame

    I'd try the Nindroid's Abandoned Factory Dojo... ;)
  10. LEGO Nexo Knights 2018

    The person who posted it also had posted a lot of TLBM 2018 figs early, such as Hawkgirl and Egghead. I actually have it saved - I can PM anyone who's interested.
  11. LEGO Ninjago 2017 Discussion

    Yup - they were the planned villains had the movie been released last year - I kinda wish that's what happened. I know they're more snakes, but I kinda prefer the designs here to the Shark Army.
  12. LEGO Ninjago 2017 Discussion

    Took some shots of the Making Of The Movie book, and it's full of really interesting info - I'll focus on the set design process in this thread though. Some Set Prototypes: 70607 Ninjago City Chase - I like a lot of these stall designs a lot more than the barebones one we got, but at least they provide really good inspiration for future builds - especially the octopus/noodle one. 70609 Manta Ray Bomber - The "fins" using blimp/hot air balloon elements on the right design are interesting, but something's a tad off, so I see why they didn't go for it. Still, it makes the model a lot more interesting than it is now, and I would have really liked new colors for the hot air balloon. 70610 Flying Jelly Sub - Nothing much to say about these prototypes - The one with teeth is pretty cute, but since the model needed a pilot, it wouldn't really work. 70611 Water Strider - If only we got that larger scale, but I can't complain much as the price is so good. 70612 Green Ninja Mech Dragon - A lot of the designs here look great, as well as the different color schemes - the one they went with is a great parts pack, but I like the darker shades a bit more. It's interesting how they stretched out the Lego element for the movie. The red build looks amazing, but I'm glad they went with natural green. 70614 Lightning Jet - I actually really like the design we got; the other designs don't seem as inspired as our current model, and the way they evoked electricity is great. 70615 Fire Mech - The set in the middle of the spread showing the three models most closely matches the scale we got - I only wish we got the prototype on the right, which actually matches the scale of the movie set really well. Additionally, I really like that curved, trans red cockpit - but I guess it was changed for better visibility of Kai. I'm glad they went with the mech design - Although the "fire" truck is an ironically funny concept, it's really boring. 70616 Ice Tank - I like the final aesthetic of what we got a lot more than some of the other proposed designs, but I wish the cannon opening feature was used for the final set - it makes a great play feature and gives a logical reason as to why the set looks the way it does. 70617 Temple of the Ultimate Ultimate Weapon - What we got is much better than these two, but the stone dragons on the right one look a bit nicer than what we got. 70618 Destiny's Bounty - We got such a superb set I don't have much to say about the prototypes, other than I wish we got a flying feature given that it flew in the film. 70620 Ninjago City - I really, really like the top of that right one - the tan and trans light blue windshield look spectacular. What we got was alright - the skyscraper as part of the city but in a different scale is a bit odd at any angle besides the front, but it's not a big deal. 70629 Piranha Chase - I like what we got - if only the feet moved, though 70632 Cole's Quake Mech - Again, not much to say with this one except the final design is better than the umpteenth overused Power Miners drill design - that brick-built wheel looks really sweet though. 70656 garmadon, Garmadon, GARMADON Other (Unreleased): This Nexo Knights-esque concept would have been featured if the movie was set in a more rural village, something that was considered. Some of the alternate Shark Army designs - I particularly like the Seahorse, Anglerfish, and Squid sub. This bounty hunter duo would have been interesting, but the movie was already pretty crowded and I feel like there wouldn't have been any time to explore these side characters - Plus the build isn't anything special. The parallels to Lloyd and Garmadon are interesting, however. And finally, the GREAT DEVOURER was the planned kaiju for the movie, to be replaced by the cat. Man - this would've meant an epic Great Devourer model as well as the albeit far less interesting and somewhat random robot mongoose. I'm guessing this was the enemy for the script that had the Vermillion as enemies. Figure Prototypes: Fabric/Cloth Elements: Why wasn't this a thing? Fans have been clamoring for a coat just like this since Commissioner Gordon sported one in TLBM (and probably before that too), so I can't fathom why they even made a physical element but didn't release it in sets. Same with this one - they clearly designed this skirt element to go along with General #1, but I can't understand why it wasn't actually released Kai - I like what we got, but gold and red arm printing would have been nice. Shirtless Kai is hilarious as well - I would have loved to see that variant and especially that face in the CMF line. Jay - This flight suit is sweet, and I wish we got it as a variant in the jet. The dark blue hat/mask combo is very attractive as well. Zane - That "breathing mask" design is really cool - I wonder what it would've looked like in white? Cole - Wish we got that ridged hammer, but there weren't many design variants showcased here. Lloyd - They dodged a bullet here with "emo Lloyd" - That would've been awful, and I'm glad they didn't go for it. The callback to 2012-era Lloyd is a bit funny, though. Nya - I rather like all of these designs - the armor mold is neat as well and I wish we got that as an actual part. Wu - Now this is where it gets interesting. Younger, "kung-fu movie" Wu would have been cool, but I see why they went with the traditional "Sensei" look. Garmadon - The crab helmet is alright, but I prefer what we got. Some of those illustrated helmets look great, though. Misako - All of the Lady Iron Dragon designs are so sweet - I could see them being re-used as Amazonians or Warrior Princesses - they all look so good. General #1 - I wish we got that different, Japanese-style hair, but the Zombie Businessman hair is serviceable. Other These Bounty Hunters look really cool - I wish that tiger was made into a set, and I'm curious as to why the bearded man is flesh-colored. The Vermillion here look really, really cool, and I wish that posable tail was actually made. It seems like the face prints were re-used for the Serpentine/Skulkin War flashback, which is interesting. That's it for now - I've posted a bunch more onto Flickr if you're interested, including a fascinating look at how Spinjitsu and the Tornado of Creation would have played a large role in the movie.
  13. Lego BrickHeadz 2018 - Rumors & Discussion

    I doubt 36 (wow - that many already?) is Hulk again, as the only re-releases they've done have been with redesigned Comic Con exclusives (thank god). I'm guessing it's probably Thanos, although we've yet to discover what that giant Brickheadz box is for, which really intrigues me.
  14. Future Constraction Lines

    A rumor from 4chan has about a 50% chance of being true, and especially because it's dealing with a 2HY 2018 catalogue (I'm pretty sure those are definitely not out with retailers yet, especially because retailers just got the 1HY catalogue in August/September.) Regardless, a new, original CCBS theme makes me so excited - I'm trying not to get my hopes up too high, as there's such a huge chance this is fake and it wouldn't make sense right after Bionicle G2's flop, but I'm holding out hope just in case...
  15. Classic LEGO Games discussion

    I didn't not enjoy it - it was fine, but I didn't really feel like it was the best sequel it could have been to my favorite game growing up, Lego Racers.
