  1. I was full excited for the Space Palace, yo! I actually arrived late to work due to rushing to pick it up on release day. Hahaha. Your own indifference to something doesn't imply any sort of universal 'truth', eh? ;)
  2. Yes. An 84 page thread is clear indication of the general online indifference towards the theme. :p
  3. What would you call the last page of overreacting to a nonexistent 'issue' with tales of cancelation and anecdotal assumptions about overall sales? It's baseless hysteria. The sets have sold briskly here, with only two notable sales (for 20% off of sets priced 49.99$ or lower only, at TRU) and otherwise full price consistently. Obviously, the reports of slow (or rapid, for that matter) sales in one town are not a universal reflection of anything. There was never going to be another wave this summer, and there will never be a wave bearing the 'canceled' set numbers. The theme will retire before it reaches those numbers, it was always going to. There will be a third 'wrap up' wave at the end of the year, just like every Lego film before this one. Everything is perfectly in line with what we've come to expect from movie themes.
  4. The additional three supposed TLM2 sets were a miscommunication from the start. Before the Triple Decker Couch Mech was revealed, the three supposed other sets were 70847, 70848, and 70849, one of which would have been the couch mech. The numbers are wildly out of sequence with the rest of the releases in the theme (the next one will be 70843). Nothing has been canceled nor changed. These sets never existed in the first place. Everything is fine. There is no need for hysteria.
  5. The only retailer exclusive (Target/Lego Store) set in the wave is 70842, Emmett's Triple-Decker Couch Mech. The other three are general release. I'd assume that you guys are on the same release timeline as the rest of the world, now that the film has released there? I thought the delayed release was the reason the sets were held back?

    REVIEW - #70828 Pop-Up Party Bus

    I have to agree with Anchir on this one. I mean, are brick built figs like Groot, Ares, Giant Man, Queen Watevra, Metalbeard, Unikitty, ect, ect, ect, really any less relevant and collectible in their respective themes than the average minifig? It seems bizarre to insist on drawing arbitrary lines based on which specific Lego pieces are required to build which characters. If you're collecting TLM2 figures, the miniolls and brick built figs are just as key as everyone else. /shrug.

    REVIEW - #70828 Pop-Up Party Bus

    This was the very first set I bought from the TLM2 theme. Having built them all (except the spring wave coming next week), it is still my favorite set in the theme! It's just so unique looking. The play features are intuitive and perfectly executed. This, above all other sets in the theme, is the one you need to own. :D
  8. He just posts udates in the "Lego Status" thread. There's a wide shot of it on this page, about a third of the way down. There are several pictures across the last few pages though. :D https://forum.brickset.com/discussion/2510/whats-your-lego-status-today/p362
  9. There's a poster over on Brickset who's been posting progress shots of his build of the Bathemoth. It's amazing stuff! I'm sure we'll see more custom builds soon, when the film is released for home viewing.
  10. Of all of the polybags, the Rex/Plantimal one makes the most sense to include. There are plenty of Duplo critters in the line (including an entire set of actual Duplo bricks), so the Lucy/Duplo poly would be overkill. The two 3in1 polys are pretty common, and are kind of pointless to stockpile. The Starstruck Emmett poly could be cool, but again, there are the little Star critters in several commercial sets. The heart set might have been acceptable, but outside of the context of it's in story significance it's not overly appealing as a set. Plantimals are pretty scarce, appearing in only 2 commercial sets. Even if you've acquired several through purchases at the Lego Store, another pack of parts in Plantimal colours is most welcome.
  11. Nope. The combined model uses only parts from the actual builds. The extra pieces are indeed just extras.
  12. Yup. I just built this one yesterday and was unnerved by the left over pieces. I combed back through the instructions several times, double checking my work on the bag. It was highly unusual.

    DC Superheroes 2015 Rumors & Discussions

    Hahaha. Yeah, that was my first thought too: Batman is insanely anti-gun. But, I get where Wilson's coming from. The design is clearly inspired by Burton's Batmobile, which did, oddly enough, feature hood mounted machine guns. I'd imagine part #4569407 would suffice for the gun itself.

    DC Superheroes 2015 Rumors & Discussions

    Right? It was actually the tipping point for me with this set. I've somehow never aquired a Batmobile despite having a slew of DC Superhero sets. I've got Bat-planes, Bat-copters, Bat-mechs, Bat-boats, Bat-subs, etc, etc...you name it, but no straight up Batmobile. I really, really wanted Starfire and Beastboy, but little else in this set. That gorgeous Batmobile model helps to assuage the exorbitant price of the set though. Hahaha.
