    LEGO Store "Build a Minifigure"

    I just got the mariachi(x3) and while they’re supposed to be dead, since they have the white hands, I put yellow heads on them. I may or may not switch out the hands & just have the White be gloves...even though that doesn’t make sense. The Dia de los Muertos could also be used as a living person, just someone who really goes all out on her costume.

    Winter Village Sets - Rumours and Discussion

    It’s not like the interiors of businesses past have been full of details, they’ve all been sparse. The houses are a different story. I’m loving it even more now but as mentioned above, a new instrument would’ve been been more than welcomed. I do love the new sweater prints though. And the Charlie Brown like one I’m glad to have...eventually.

    Winter Village Sets - Rumours and Discussion

    First world problem incoming! Is this really coming on October 3rd/8th?! I’m already going to be at the store on the 1st...and all the other sets(bar Visit which was already released by this time last year) have been Oct 1st. What are they doing?! I hate waiting for shipping.

    Winter Village Sets - Rumours and Discussion

    Oh man, that looks to be the best WV set we’ve gotten. I love it. Bonus is outside of winter, these buildings can work well in a city setting. And a cable car. Looking very forward to getting this one.

    Winter Village Sets - Rumours and Discussion

    Yeah, that’s the least exciting bit about this set. A third* toy shop is a lot. I’m very intrigued by the rest & even still, I’m sire the toy store’s building will look good.

    Marvel Superheroes 2022 - Rumors & Discussion

    Huh? That set is directly targeted towards the average Eurobricks user. Unless you mean that the average user isn’t into Marvel sets. But using Brickset, where the poll was cited, your example of polling MCU fans doesn’t match up, because Beickset(much like here) is a site for all LEGO fans. And they have a wide variety in most cases of themes they collect. I love the Marvel theme but I have zero interest in this. The helmet sets don’t interest me at all...and a bugger version is no different. And it’s price is insulting & just them trying to capitalize on the character. I’m not so sure that the average non LEGO buyer that loves BP would even throw that amount of money at this set. They could buy some amazing statues for a lot less.

    REVIEW: 76218 Sanctum Sanctorum

    I agree most with your minifg lineup. Not having Kacillius at all is definitely unfortunate, maybe we’ll see him in a CMF. Leg & arm printing is a plus, but we really didn’t need another Spidey. And considering we have the book with that spell & the doors, Kacillius would’ve been perfect for this set. Onto the building. It’s fantastic. The angled bit is well integrated. I like interior during the build process, but that’s it. So I’m glad they paid extra attention to the exterior.

    Wizarding World 2022 - Rumors & Discussion

    While I can’t really envision a set built around a banner, I’m certainly intrigued due to the books being quite neat & fun builds.

    LEGO Store "Build a Minifigure"

    I’ve seen it before, but seeing the BaM station at the new Leicester store really makes me wish we had that here in the States. Digging for parts it tough in that cramped little tower. It would be so nice to have trays with all that extra usable counter space. AFOL problems....

    Wizarding World 2022 - Rumors & Discussion

    Have you gotten around to messing with yours yet? I still don’t have the new Buckbeak set but I arranged it as it’s shown in the back of the manuals both to see how it looked & to see how I might be able to rearrange. And I can’t find a good cohesive spot for the Staircase.
  12. Hmm...I always assumed they all got the same stock of stuff. A buddy was at ours the other day & it had the Bad Batch Shuttle & Imperial Light Cruiser. It would’ve been nice to get the Scythe for as cheap as Costco, as it’s a deal even at normal price. Speaking of...... I really do want the Justifier but man, that price to piece count is hard to swallow. The ship looks to be big enough to make it seem worth it & Fennec with her helmet & Todo 360 are huge draws as well. I’m really hoping it shows up at Costco so the purchase won’t hurt so bad.

    What's your recent LEGO Star Wars Purchase?

    75333 Obi-Wan’s Jedi Starfighter & 75336 Inquisitor Transport Scythe. I preordered them because I figured they’d be on the price hike list...turns out they weren’t. But hey... Both are Greta sets & builds. JSF was a really neat build. It’s so much better than the old ones, which is to be expected with that kind of time in between. Taun We is fantastic & a long overdue addition. The Scythe is just awesome. Minifigs are amazing. Build was a lot of fun, especially that nose. They ship is bigger than I expected which was a surprise to be sure, but a welcomed one. It feels like a great deal at $100.

    Wizarding World 2022 - Rumors & Discussion

    I’m a bit disappointed by the Calendar. As others have said there isn’t much usable stuff here. The mini builds are fine, just not anything really exciting or useful. The best is chair Slughorn. Minifigs are mostly good, but can Sirius please get a new face print already. The GoF paper print tile is cool as well. But this especially underwhelming when the price is $45. They were already hard to swallow at $40. They need to do better if they’re gonna charge us this kind of money.

    Unpopular Opinions about LEGO

    Oh man, I am with you 1 million percent. That JP mech set is a good example. While I like the molded dinos(as well as all the babies) I have no desire to get that volcano. I would’ve been all over the set had it just been the mech. And while it wasn’t in your exampes, those big “square” City sets. They usually have 20-30% of a $150+ set that I actually want/use. If they broke those down to smaller, individual sets that would make them so much more appealing. I also agree completely on your conflict angle. So many toys didn’t need that. G.I. Joe, Transformers, & Exo Squad popped in my head right off the bat.
