    LEGO Ninjago 2019

    It is actually among the top selling themes, it just wasn't put on Lego's infographic for some reason.
  2. I personally always found it odd that the Oni were hyped up as the embodiment of destruction, yet throughout March of the Oni, they don't physically destroy a single thing. In addition, the tornado of creation doesn't 'create' anything either, unlike when it was used back in the early days of Ninjago. Speaking of the March of the Oni special though, it appears that it will finally be airing in the UK in a couple of weeks on both Cartoon Network and CITV (Starting Sep 1st and 3rd respectively). It's a shame that it took this long to come to the UK, hopefully we'll get the Secrets of Forbidden Spinjitzu soon as well.

    HIDDEN SIDE - 2019

    The minifig parts don't even show up if you go through the 'broken bricks' section where licensed parts would be present, so I assume that they just don't have any of the new parts available just yet.

    HIDDEN SIDE - 2019

    When do you think that Hidden Side parts will appear on bricks and pieces? Just built the shrimp boat and while the build itself is great and well detailed, I was disappointed to find that Lego is still having issues with the quality of the minifigures. A few of the printed parts came with the black lines being all fuzzy like they didn't put enough ink on, and one of the torsos of the sailors came with chips and dents round the base. I was hoping to buy some of the other sets too but I think I'll wait until the parts appear on bricks and pieces so that if I inevitably come across more defective pieces, I won't be waiting too long for replacements.

    Overwatch 2019 - Rumors & Discussion

    Was just typing my thoughts on the Promobricks article when the leaks popped up. I think that an explanation for poor sales from other retailers would be that the target audience for this theme (generally) don't shop at toy stores and have instead been buying online, hence Lego's descision to sell the sets to consumers directly. With the leaking of more set numbers for Overwatch, I am optimistic that this theme will continue further. If the rumours concerning Overwatch as a franchise as a whole turn out to be true, I think that there is no reason to be worried about the fate of the Lego sets.

    Overwatch 2019 - Rumors & Discussion

    I believe that it is simply a piece used to cover the mechs 'eye' when in ball mode; attached to the yellow stud on the front of the mech.

    Overwatch 2019 - Rumors & Discussion

    Wow, both sets look fantastic! Roadhog has got to be one of the most detailed bigfigs ever made, tons of new moulds just for that one set. I also really like the inclusion of the pachimari. Wrecking ball also looks good, not sure if the sand green is the most accurate colour they could have chosen but the transformation function looks very well done at least. The Hammond figure also looks very cute.

    Their wording definitely implies that. Comic-con reveal perhaps?

    So, according to Promobricks, the two sets for the next wave are: 75976 Wrecking Ball 75977 Junkertown Bike Wrecking Ball is certainly a surprise, but a welcome one for sure because I've been playing as him quite a lot lately.

    LEGO Ninjago 2019

    Here is a short thread on why, straight from one of the Lego designers. On the topic of LLoyds Mech, I personally won't be buying it regardless of how good it is aesthetically due to its size. I've already had to replace the joints on my Fire Mech and Garma Mecha Man sets multiple times already as they just became too loose. Another problem I have with large mechs are their lack of posability which is probably the most important aspect of a mech or figure.

    LEGO Ninjago 2019

    So, I've been digging around various shopping sites that sell Lego, looking for official summer set pictures, and I came across all the sets for Ninjago. Enjoy! I'm going to keep looking around that site for the rest of the June releases for other themes. Edit: Links removed, all the pictures are on the usual places now anyway. No other June releases seem to be on the site.

    Harry Potter 2020 - Rumors & discussion

    Last year, official pictures for June releases were found around April 20th, so with any luck, we could see the new sets in as little as three weeks from now, but of course it could end up being longer.

    Nya is back to her gunmetal colour, all of them use a new shoulder armour piece to go with the new hoods, these look great!
