    Harry Potter 2020 - Rumors & Discussion

    Fawkes is gorgeous, and I quite like the books and the lion mask! Hope to get a recolor for a Lion Suit Guy. This next minifigure series is looking pretty great! This will be the first year since 2015 that has three series with only 16 minifigures each. I’m wondering if this was an intentional decision... it certainly makes the box distribution predictable.
  2. Some questions/observations: is Green Brick Guy’s hair new? Otherwise, waste of a spot IMO. The keytar has a pin on the back that makes it look minidoll-friendly. Love that turtle with the diver! It looks like she has a piece that allows her to be displayed on the mini figure stand with her flippers on, which has always been an annoyance with me in the past... The accessories that come with the animal and food suits this time around are uninspired. Why an apple with the Pea Pod Girl? The drone makes clever usage of the hat propeller! What is the other thing that guy is holding?? Overall, my feeling for this series is about the same as Series 19, which was largely mediocre. The ideas are great, but the execution on most leaves me wanting more... Maybe that will change once I find them in stores.
  3. The Nunchaku Guy seems interesting. Like the hair recolor and a new nunchaku piece. I hope he gets two of them! This is a personal ideal for me, but a nice middle ground could be alternating between licensed and regular, so one year has R-L-R and the following would be L-R-L, possibly allowing themeing in both based on seasons, like we’ve seen in some regular series.
  4. Love that piñata, and the neutral colored sombrero. Wonder what the poncho will look like? Thanks for all the info so far! Happy to hear that we're getting even gender ratios, and sad to hear that we're not getting many animals. Series 19 was rather average for me, so Series 20 is sounding to be more of the same... I hope we get to see official pictures soon! ...so like the Goblin?? Or better?? Am I remembering correctly that you got over 50 of those?

I really want these figures to become part of a series! Basketball Player Blacksmith Broccoli Man Cow Suit Lady Cupid Evil Alien Fairy Queen Fashion Designer Friendly Ghost Gardener Ice Knight Ocean Warrior Ogre Outback Guy Pharmacist Pirate Woman Pilgrim Edit: totally forgot the S19 old woman was the "Gardener." meh. Added Pirate Woman!

    DC Superheroes 2020 - Rumors & Discussion

    My local Walmart had them out with a price sticker of $2! I couldn’t believe it... I wasn’t too thrilled with this series so I was about to skip it, but couldn’t say no at that price! Felt through all the bags they had, and I believe I’m only missing Green Lantern. Haven’t opened them all to confirm such, but the three I’ve opened so far (Huntress, Miracle Man, and Cheetah) all look pretty great. I do wish the dollar sign was printed on both sides of the green sack.

    Good round! Series 15 has my vote... I would say this is my second favorite series overall, right behind Series 13. The Faun is amazing figure, and perhaps one of the last truly innovative figures. Shark Suit Guy is one of the better costumed characters. Flying Warrior, Clumsy Guy, Tribal Woman, Laser Mech, Ballerina, Frightening Knight, Jewel Thief, and Janitor round out my favorites.

    I didn't have times to give my thoughts on the last group, but I ended up voting Series 13... It's my favorite of all the released series thus far. There isn't one in the group I don't like. Series 15 is a very close second, and I also like some figures from Series 7. Out of this new group, the best one is Series 12. Battle Goddess, Wizard, Hun Warrior and Spooky Girl are my favorites from that one.

    I voted for Series 10 this time. Medusa basically made that decision for me... But I also like the Sea Captain, Paintball Player, Bumblebee Girl, Tomahawk Warrior, and Sad Clown.
  10. https://youtu.be/_U4OFU4r2To Just because I'm curious... This reviewer opens the Fox Suit Girl at around 12:30 and she doesn't have the inner bag. So there's definitely something going on with the manufacturing process that's not a sure thing... It's a shame he edits out the building process to showcase the tail's flexible nature, which is assumed since all other tails of that kind have been made of softer plastic. I'm fairly certain the Gardener's flamingo is also made of a softer plastic, but the opening video shows that it is not separate. Hopefully someday, LEGO will give us context on these packaging changes; I'd love to hear it! I forgot to mention - I like how the Monkey King's tail has gold painted on the front of the part, akin to how Scrooge's McDuck's tail from Disney Series 2 was painted with blue. Little details like that make all the difference to me!

    I voted for Series 17 this time. The detail on them makes them incomparable to Series 4 or 5, and I really like the Retro Spaceman and the Elf Maiden. Series 5 is a close second for me, with a ton of iconic figures, like the Graduate, Ice Fisherman, Lizard Man, Egyptian Queen, Gangster, Gladiator, Lumberjack, Detective, and Cave Woman. They just suffer from a lack of detail that we've come to expect with newer series. Series 4 is too horror and sport oriented for my tastes, but still has some great ones, like the Geisha and the Hazmat Guy. I am always reminded of Series 5 when I see Series 17. Firstly, the bag color, and secondly, the Dance Instructor, Roman Gladiator and Battle Dwarf being reminiscent of the Fitness Instructor, Gladiator and Evil Dwarf. Though it appears that's where the similarities end...
  12. I remember my Swamp Creature from TLM2 Series had an inner bag, with the whip being separate from the other parts. The tails from Kitty Pop and Cowardly Lion were also separate. Could be because all those parts are made from a softer plastic, and thus are made somewhere else in production like the textile elements. And even though the crayon suit is hard plastic, there must be something about it, perhaps the dual-molding process, that made it necessary to be produced separately. It makes sense for the Shower Guy, Monkey King, and Mountain Biker to have an inner bag with this context: the towel skirt for the Shower Guy, the rubber bike tires for the Mountain Biker, and both the cloth element and the tail for the Monkey King.

    I missed the last few rounds, but I'll give my votes for those anyway. A: Series 6! I missed this series, but found it to be one of the most intriguing to complete when I started collecting. With my favorites being the Butcher, Surgeon, Clockwork Robot, Leprechaun, Minotaur, Lady Liberty, Classic Alien, Roman Soldier, and Genie. B: Series 9! This was the first series that got me seriously into collecting and the first I collected all 16. My favorites in this one were Forest Maiden, Cyclops, Fortune Teller, Mr. Good and Evil, Plumber, Waiter, Heroic Knight, and Mermaid. C: Series 11! Another excellent group of figures, and contains my favorite two figures of all the released series, being the Yeti and the Island Warrior. I also liked Gingerbread Man, Scarecrow, Grandma, Holiday Elf, Pretzel Girl, Welder, and Scientist. I quite like this game!
  14. In the Mummy Queen renders, her face is much yellower, almost indistinguishable from the minifigure yellow skin. In the real-life pictures and videos we've seen, her face is much more apparently golden as opposed to yellow. I feel like the Galactic Bounty Hunter is another example of poorly-rendered metallic printing. The dark gray and red colors on his torso and legs in the renders appear to be more titanium and copper respectively in pictures and video. The yellow just seems to be a combination of poor lighting mostly, and possibly poor printing quality? That mask discrepancy seems like a last-minute change or a mistake. I think I prefer the black, but that may change once I get the figure in my possession. I quite like the face print though, a much better alien look compared to the Alien Avenger. Yes!! Hope to see some early releases in stores soon. It feels strange that LEGO hasn't revealed them on social media yet...
  15. You're right, I definitely missed that one. Thank you! I clearly don't pay any attention to Overwatch sets... So that makes 11 then, and definitely on the lower end... Even so, I think that we shouldn't expect a high new piece count all the time. It depends on what figures the LEGO designers want to make within a series, and other factors aside, they consider what's available in their current library. Reusing parts for different contexts can be successful, and for me, the Pizza Guy and Bounty Hunter are examples of such successes, even if the former was inevitable, and the latter is really just another formulaic space character with a gun...
