    Super Mario 2021 - Rumors & Discussion

    I think a 2x2 round head with removable hat/hair like the Trolls figures would make the most sense.

    Harry Potter 2021 - Rumors & Discussion

    This is kind of random but I modded the Prefect's bathroom from the clocktower set to fit the new 8x16 module style. I love the print for the mermaid but the version of the room in that set is so small and doesn't really show off the window well.

    1x5 brick incoming?

    Nicely spotted! I hesitate to place too much weight on these sort of things but it certainly seems odd to picture a brick that doesn't exist.

    I know, I said that in the same post you quoted.

    Lego City 2021 Rumours, information and discussion

    I think it is interesting that the stunt bikes are friction drive / flywheel instead of pull back. In my experience with my sons' toys, friction drive goes faster for longer so it makes sense. It looks a little weird how the rear wheels are small and the bikes are long, though I expect it is to resist wheelieing too much. The ramps look useful for anyone making a skate park, and I expect they will be a lot of fun for the target audience. It's interesting they are made from two pieces, so the initial ramp can be removed and flat tiles used to connect two ramps into a half pipe. Personally I like the two bikes going through the ring (60299), the bikes are good colors and I like the enduro style that comes in blue there and otherwise only comes in one individual bike in purple. One thing I'm wondering us if the monster trucks have a pull back or friction drive mechanism, nothing is indicated in the catalog.

    Lego City 2021 Rumours, information and discussion

    I didn't know these had gotten so expensive, at $30+ vs $5-10 for the other big cat figures. What is weird is that LEGO hasn't bothered to put one in another set despite using the mold regularly, though I suppose the tiger is one of the more expensive variants with its significant printing. I had to double check that I really owned one, and found I had paid $15 US for it in October 2017. I'm sure I questioned the expense at the time, but it pays to get in early with unique animals.

    Today I saw the rubber ducky piece from one of my son's LEGO sets and that made me wonder, why not recolor it white if they can't make a whole new mold? It is small, but still would have been better than the dove I think. This piece:

    Honestly there are not many scenes in the bedrooms or bathrooms. I don't recall ever seeing the inside of Joey and Chandler's bathroom. There are some good scenes in Rachel and Monica's bathroom though. It's just quite hidden when the set is on display so I understand them not including it. The main setting left after this set would be one of Ross's 2nd apartment, the one across the street. That would honestly be a pretty small set since it would only need to be the living room. I doubt they'll make a set of that but it is amazing we're getting a set of the main two apartments, so who knows!

    Future Castle Sets?

    There is a leaked picture of the castle 3 in 1 on instagram. I think it looks awesome! There looks to be 4 figures, two black falcons soldiers, one civilian, and a skeleton. The civilian looks like a pirates torso but since it's a prelim, may change. The castle has some wattle and daub over the gate and a side section like a mill with a water wheel. There is a brick built green dragon and some brick built chickens. Hard to see the alternates but one has a tall tower and what looks like a trebuchet attacking it. Very nicely done overall!

    I pre-ordered the Luigi set from Target. Last year they shipped much sooner than S@H, where things tend to hang around "in warehouse."

    Thank you! I kind of merged two characters, both of whom sometimes have a bucket for a hat. Snow Pokey, and Mr. Blizzard

    Lord of the rings sets returning?

    Not sure about worldwide, but The Razor Crest is a notable Amazon exclusive in the US. I don't know if Amazon being a major LEGO retailer will influence the odds of sets being made for the show, but it can't hurt.

    Lord of the rings sets returning?

    Yes, but not just that they sell LEGO but are very likely in the top 3 biggest LEGO sellers. They are also one of a handful of retailers with a history of having exclusive sets. How many other retailers also make their own shows and movies?
