    Marvel Superheroes 2022 - Rumors & Discussion

    Right, I would never expect LEGO to make sets based on an R rated movie. I was addressing people who were saying that because there are R rated movies featuring Deadpool, we can't or won't get anymore Deadpool minifigs, comic versions or otherwise.

    $14.99 Deadpool mech set with a comic-accurate minifig, boom problem solved. Afterall, Deadpool has also appeared in a number of Marvel's children's cartoons over the years, there's no reason why both the kid-friendly and not so kid-friendly versions of characters can't exist simultaneously. Look no further than a character like the Joker. In some versions, he is a moustache-twirling, silly Batman villain and other times he is a very violent, sadistic, dark character. LEGO has no problem selling Joker minifigs as long as they are the former rather than the latter... except for when they made 2 Heath Ledger Joker figures.... LEGO isn't exactly consistent with these rules, people. Yes, The Dark Knight was not rated R like The Joker was which is why we would never get THAT version of the Joker but it was still a very violent, dark, sadistic take on the character that was not exactly kid-friendly. They aren't always consistent with how they apply their rules on what they're willing to make sets and figures based on.
  3. The Razor Crest does look amazing but is so far out of my price range it's hard to pay much attention to it. What I am focusing on is the build for the Bluurg and the pram. It's disappointing that the Bluurg has an exclusive eye printed piece, that will make recreating them accurately more difficult, though I imagine the set will come with at least one extra that I'm sure many will sell on bricklink. I really like the build of the Bluurg, it looks so much better than it appeared on the blurry leaks. I would still vastly prefer a specialized molded creature especially for consistency with other Star Wars creatures but I'll take it for now I don't like how squared off the pram is on the back but overall it's a decent little build. Regarding the figures, Kuill still looks like his face melted and is still way too big. The new Mando looks fantastic but it's already making me a little mad because the updated helmet print is excellent but I know they're going to go right back to the absolutely awful printing for Mando season 3 sets. Prove me wrong LEGO!

    A single piece mold for a baby Brachy(Firecracker perhaps) along the lines of the baby Triceratops would be great.

    I also prefer molded parts to brick-built for LEGO animals but in the case of the Brachiosaurus, I don't think they could reasonably do that, plus with the inventory of parts they have access to and the relative size the Brachy would need to be, I'm confident they can make it a pretty solid, smooth build that can fit fairly well alongside the molded dinosaurs.

    Johnny typically doesn't have spikes and his contemporary look has more of a double-breasted leather jacket with a rectangular outline and black leather pants. Danny has the metal spikes and gray pants and a different looking leather jacket. Danny's look became the difinitive Ghost Rider look, so much so that when Johnny became Ghost Rider again, he borrowed elements of it. Also the Nic Cage Ghost Rider movie used Danny's look for Ghost Rider instead of Johnny's. Also, for a time Danny had blue flames and spiked armor. If LEGO decides to give us Danny, they could give him spiked shoulder pads and gray pants to better differentiate from the previous figures or even go a step further and give him blue flames. No, Robbie's skull was his typical skull for the most part. There was a couple comic covers around the time that made it look like a regular skull though and the recent Avengers Forever comic series(of which he is the main character) depict him with a more human-looking metal skull. He's also about to get a new look as he's about to become the All-Rider.

    Based on what little we know, I definitely think it's just going to be a regular mech with a bike large enough for it to ride and 1 Ghost Rider figure. It's clearly listed as a bike and not a car so it's definitely either Johnny Blaze or Danny Ketch. My hope is it's Danny since we've already had Johnny and Robbie. I would also love it if it came with a minifig-compatible bike along with the mech-scaled bike, even if it's a generic minifig motorcycle in black with flame pieces clipped to it. Ideally, I would love a new motorcycle cowl piece based on Danny's bike but I wouldn't count on it. I didn't like Robbie's metal skull when it was first introduced but it grew on me eventually and now I really like it. He's always had it in the comics but depending on artistic interpretation it sometimes looks more like a real skull, just made of metal. In the Agents of SHIELD tv show, he had a "real" skull.
  8. It looks incredible but it's way too expensive for me. I like the figures and I love the brick-built Blurrg and pram. I'll definitely build those 2 things for myself once I can get a better look at the pieces they use. Even though they would have been much better with new molds, I'm kinda glad they didn't so that we can just recreate the "official" LEGO models without having to sell an organ on the black market to afford a UCS set.

    Jurassic World 2022 - Rumors & Discussion

    So it sounds like we may be getting sets next year that correspond with the 30th anniversary of the original JP movie which is a very exciting prospect. Hopefully not all of the sets will be based on the 1st film as there is so much that still needs covered for the entire franchise but at least 3 sets for the 1st film at different price points would be great. Personally, I would absolutely love a brick-built Brachiosaurus with a set of specialized molds for the head and throw in a JP jeep with Allen Grant, Ellie Sattler and John Hammond minifigs for around $60-$80 replicating the scene where they see a living Dinosaur for the first time. The body of the Brachy could be done similarly to Lloyd's Legendary Dragon from earlier this year and utilize the same new technic ratcheted piece fro the front limbs. Other than that, I still think a large playset of the visitor's center based on the final moments of the movie would make for an awesome $130-$150 set. Aside from that, there is a ton of stuff they could do for smaller sets like a $20 JP Jeep with Nedry and a Dilophosaurus, a $30-$40 set with the sick Triceratops and one of the Ford Explorers, I could go on. I'd also love it if they reissued 75932: Jurassic Park Velociraptor Chase since I missed out on it back when it came out and it goes for pretty high prices now, however it's much more likely they'll remake that set entirely or make sets based on those scenes individually rather than the smaller combined model we got in 2018. Also, sorry for the long post but I have a lot of thoughts on this theme and where they could go with it.

    Oh wow, I actually really like this set! The warship looks very cool and in some ways reminds me of the Nautilus from the League of Extraordinary Gentlemen and I really like the drones too, those really make me think of Atlantis the Lost Empire. It does look like it will be deceptively larger than I think people realize and we have yet to see what's in the interior. The figures look good but man, how I wish they included Kraven's fur piece was included for M'Baku and he really needed leg printing. I'll just have to give him one myself. Also, really? Namor is fighting all of this by himself? Really LEGO!? You couldn't even include Attuma for a 3rd time? Talk about a one-sided battle...

    Agreed. That's a huge miss. We could have at least had one generic Talocan soldier thrown into each set.

    I'm very glad to hear the theme is continuing! Until a new show/movie is announced, there is so much they can do with the theme in the meantime. It would be awesome if it operated like Star Wars and Harry Potter with each wave of sets having a healthy variety of representation from movies and shows. Give us a grown-up Bumpy(I want this more than anything and would not require any new molds please, please, please LEGO!)vs Scorpius Rex(basically reuse the Indoraptor molds but with a new head) set from Camp Cretateous, a JP3 Spinosaurus attack set(reuse the Baryonyx head if need be), a LW Stegosaurus encounter set with a baby and adult Stegosaurus(they could even use the belly and legs from the Ankylosaurus and give it a similar tail gimmick) give us a playset of the visitor's center from JP based on the final scenes of the film(conplete with a Raptor, Rexy and falling banner gimmick), not to mention all the capture vehicles from LW and the classic vehicles from JP--- with 6 movies and 5 seasons of the cartoon there is no shortage of content for set inspiration and that's not even including things like Legends of Isla Nublar which I could totally see them doing something like that again.

    Sounds neat but man, how I wish it was a war whale instead...

    You're forgetting Elsa Bloodstone in Werewolf-By-Night, she's also a main character right alongside WBN. Honestly, I would prefer WBN get it's own set since it's a Halloween Special and not a series like the rest. I Am Groot and the tGotG Holiday Special both got sets but then again, WBN looks like it'll be pretty dark and push the limits of horror on D+. Maybe they didn't do a set for the Halloween special because they thought it would be too scary for kids, which I get but maaaaaannn I would have absolutely loved that...

    I doubt it considering the memes are fairly recent and the set was designed a year ago.
