  1. There are scads of them. Everything from Kingdom Come, to Red Son, to The Nail, etc, etc... were all 'Elseworlds' stories. 'Elseworlds' was just a generic imprint when DC decided to tell a story outside of the Earth One timeline.
  2. Which Elsworlds Flash? There are many of them.

    DC Superheroes 2020 - Rumors & Discussion

    Really? I've quite enjoyed all of the recent DC movie sets. The Aquaman set was a bit meh (the JL Aquaman set was far superior, offering Atlantean soldier and Parademon army builders in a cheap set), but Mera was a most welcome addition to the collection. The Justice League sets were all fun builds, even if the Batmobile was just a tweaked version of one we previously got. The minifigs were all top shelf, with Flash and Cyborg standing out as two of the finest minifigs Lego has ever done. The Wonder Woman set was perfection. Ares and Steve were just 'must have' characters for WW fans. The BVS sets were all just fine. The Batwing set included all of the core characters and a fully fidget friendly action feature for the plane itself. The other two sets included nice useful extras like Lexcorp goons and extra Kryptonite crystals. I can't say that I was disappointed by any of them, tbh.

    Right? She looks fantastic, imho. It's very reminiscent of her appearance in the Perez issues where she debuted. I'm not at all a fan of her current look in the comics, so a bit of a throwback is a nice touch. The slicked hair is just pure 80s fromage that adds that extra kick to the look!

    HIDDEN SIDE - 2019

    It was part of his profile on the official HS page since before the first wave even hit store shelves, that he was 'the new kid in town who's mother was also the principal' or something to that effect. It was actually finally meeting Parker's parents that kind of surprised me in that episode. They've been completely absent from the narrative until now.

    I wasn't being even remotely sarcastic, actually. I freaking love the HS ├Žsthetic! I've never really been one to build a Lego city, but I'll eagerly snap up literally anything the HS team puts out in an effort to flesh out Newbury. I full on adore the small town charm of the line mixed with the horror and sci-fi elements. I can't get enough of it! I would actually kill for a small town style water tower, decked out with haunting features and/or some of JB's tech. I'm less keen on some of the smaller vignette style builds, like the lab and the subway station... but even they are gorgeous for what they are. I just have no idea how to situate them with the more robust builds without some serious MOCing. The school, the diner, the lighthouse, the train and station, the graveyard, the fairground, the portal, the juice bar... I love them all! Like, that was what drew me into the theme: the buildings and landmarks. The vehicles have all been exceptional as well, (baring the questionable promo drag racer design). Even the little side builds, like the portaloo, motor trike, go kart, and even the coastal rocks have been stand outs! That's just the builds. The characters have all been phenomenal! Every set comes with interesting new townies and thier ghoulish transformations. This side of the Lego Movie themes there has never been a theme that I adore as much as this one. I will absolutely buy anything and everything they release, eagerly adding new landmarks and citizens to Newbury.

    How could it ever get old? More of the same would be absolutely perfect! Keep churning out run down town locations until all of Newbury is represented, and I'll be happy. Just imagine if it got to the point where we're getting random houses and water towers?! Maybe a haunted old barn? There's really no end to the sets they could produce just sticking with the "anywhere USA" ├Žsthetic, and it would never, ever be enough.

    That's really all it is though. It's a matter of personal preference. Other than the Haunted House and the castle, I've no use for the builds in the rest of the line. They range from pitifully basic throwaway pap to full on eyesores. HS has a certain charm to it that has me snapping up each and every set. Outside of the current S@H dragster promo set, I've yef to be disappointed with a set in the theme. One man's trash and all that. /shrug.

    Yeah, the second wave was great! It was definitely a tonal shift from the first wave, but each set offered up something fantastic. Even the much maligned beach buggy gave us a fun little fidget toy, not to mention the brilliant two headed haunted mechanic minifig. There was no 'showcase' set like the school or the bus, but it offered up some interesting builds (the plane is my personal favorite) and some great new Newbury locales... all at reasonable price points. The lighthouse was especially welcome, expanding on the Newbury waterfront. From the digital side, the devs really amped it up for wave 2. The virtual environments for the wave 2 sets are rather impressive. I spent a large chunk of time just exploring the environmets, taking it all in. There were layers upon layers of detail in each level.

    They were in a weird place at my nearest Walmart, tucked into the Trolls display beside the Trolls polybag set.

    It stands for Evelina. It was in one of the ghost's bios.

    I hope that list is legit! All of it sounds amazing! The price points seem to indicate that these will be substantial builds, which is really nice to see after the slew of smaller builds in the second wave.

    Yeah, it's kinda random, eh? I mean, we already got his normal head with the Stunt Truck, but for people who only get him in this promo set it feels a bit... cheap. I was just happy to get a new HoH torso, tbh. I'd already planned to give it a different head to create a new gang member. The build itself is, imho, the first real disappointment in the HS line. It's very lackluster. It's hard to complain about something free though. I'll probably go back for another one this week, just for more HoH torsos! :D

    Yeah, we have excellent minifigs of the BoP ladies. Black Canary is legit one of my favorite DC minifigs. Her alternate expression, really belting out one her sonic screams, is probably the single best face prints Lego has ever done! A Black Mask would be freaking amazing though! His role in Brubaker's Catwoman run was one of the darkest stories I've ever read.

    Trolls World Tour 2020 - Rumors & Discussion

    I'm kinda hooked on these now. I picked up one out of curiosity, and have since picked up three more. I think I'll probably end up getting them all at this point. After I started building these, I investigated a few episodes the Netflix series to get to know the characters, and now I really want a Smidge minifig. i hope there's at least a second wave so they can release her, hahaha.
