  1. DC Superheroes 2017 - Set Discussion

    Out of curiosity, would you say it's worth its full retail price? Or wait till a discount of, say, $99.99?
  2. LEGO Ninjago Movie Videogame

    Seeing as how this game will tie into the movie, similar to the previous The Lego Movie game, I don't expect any innovation. Maybe some new puzzle gimmicks, but that'll probably be the extent of the new content. Movie tie-ins are always rushed, but I don't think the game will be bad. Just more of the same.
  3. DC Superheroes 2017 - Set Discussion

    After everything we've seen thus far, I really don't think getting your hopes up for anything extraordinary out of these sets is a good idea. Pray for the best everyone, but bridle your expectations. Otherwise, these forums are just destined to be riddled with more disappointment.
  4. DC Superheroes 2017 - Set Discussion

    I think the sets will be fine. From my perspective, making these sets great is a requirement. Given the controversy behind the DCEU, Lego can't solely rely on the property to sell itself. Spider-Man / GOTG V.2 sets on the other hand, absolutely. Those properties are way too popular with consumers that Lego doesn't really have to put as much exertion into them, because they'll be purchased regardless if the builds are decent, or even if the films they're based on aren't well received. (Fat chance of that though) Justice League on the other hand, at least I would assume, is very sketchy territory for investors. If it flops, there's no way casual consumers would purchase garbage builds with decent minifigures. They'll put their money towards something else. Look at prior movie sets from Lego, particularly the one's that only get one wave of sets. Lone Ranger comes to mind, as those sets were really awesome. The movie not so much, but Lego put a lot of resources into those sets because they had no idea if the movie would be that good where the sets would sell themselves. Even GOTG 1 sets were way more masterfully crafted than the latest ones; Lego just didn't know if their sets would sell if the builds themselves were bland. I suppose it's just a matter of being comfortable with the particular theme, something Lego clearly exercises with Marvel. It's such a household franchise that they probably don't really care as much. But that's something they cannot afford when it comes to this Justice League movie. Hell, I wouldn't be surprised if BvS took a lot of manufactures by storm, as a title and concept like that would surely make money. But, it probably wasn't what they anticipated or hoped even to sell. I'm expecting high quality stuff in order for the sets to stand on their own.
  5. The LEGO Batman Movie Set/CMF Rumors & Discussion

    While I appreciate all the unique variants, I would really love a Beyond suit too...Considering it's in the trailers, it'd be nice to have something that's practical alongside the goof suits. Summer wave I can only hope.
  6. The LEGO Batman Movie Set/CMF Rumors & Discussion

    Apparently, Target's in OH are running a special 20% off on all existing sets. Anyone per chance know if this sale is applicable to the four released Batman sets? Given that they're not even supposed to properly be released, I highly doubt it. I'm heading up their tomorrow to face the truth. If it's true I'll contemplate pulling the trigger on the more "costly" ones. But if anyone has any knowledge about the deal, I'd very much appreciate it.

    Guess Batman has more than one butt after all.
  8. Rearranged Lego Death Star Scenes

    Oh and when it comes to uploading photographs, I suggest using this for reference
  9. Post your general LEGO Star Wars questions here

    I highly doubt Lego would request the locking of a thread purely based on criticism. It's probably just because there were a plethora amount of comments dedicated solely towards pictures that were unlicensed by Lego themselves. Lego could probably careless about what owners of the previous set think regarding the "new" model.
  10. Rearranged Lego Death Star Scenes

    Coincidentally, I also started to clean off my Deathstar. I suppose the anticipation for seeing the same model in a new box motivated me to do so. Anyways, I must say you managed to do a much better clean up job than I did; still got some dust lurking on the edges of studs. Regarding the photographs, I love the simplistic look, reminds me of when I first got the set and would pose the minifigs in a similar fashion
  11. Marvel Superheroes 2017 - Set Discussion

    For sure, but I don't necessarily think that's the issue. Lego has already proven they can loophole their way around getting what could be regarded as "not kid friendly" characters into sets. Take a look at Suicide Squad from DC, they managed to make a set featuring many of the characters who appear in the upcoming movie, but didn't tie the set into the movie itself. (Personally I don't think that's an issue, or that SS is pushing the "kid friendly" but there are some that would argue that). What I'm saying is if Lego can create a set featuring "darker" characters into a normal comic based set, surely they could sneak some Defenders characters into Comic based Marvel sets.
  12. Marvel Superheroes 2017 - Set Discussion

    At this point I feel getting a Coulson figure was so long overdue to the point that I could really care less to get one. 2-4 years earlier and I would be on board, but now I would much rather have another Comic/TV themed character (DareDevil, Jessica Jones, Punisher, Zemo etc.).
  13. The LEGO Batman Movie Set/CMF Rumors & Discussion

    Already I love that new face print, much more accurate to Bruce Wayne compared to the last one. Fingers crossed this makes the chance of getting some form of Wayne Manor as a set more likely.
  14. Marvel Superheroes 2016 Rumors And Discussion

    Yes please! Where did you get it from might I ask?
  15. The LEGO Batman Movie Set/CMF Rumors & Discussion

    Dang. I was seriously hoping the Joker would be a Duplo figure, that'd be hilarious. But in all seriousness, they look good. Just vastly different to the norm. I wonder which Robin that's supposed to be, since the design is really similar to Carrie Kelley. Doubt it's her though. I'm not entirely certain, but is that hair piece for Robin new? Would make a great hairpiece for a teen Peter Parker.
