  1. If you're in the minority then I'm in it with you. The backstory in 27 was great and fleshes out who the real threat and victims are.
  2. Surprised no one is talking about Episode 16 that showed up online:
  3. Based on Tommy's comments it's not anime for the sake of anime. The narrative will dictate when/where the anime appears and doesn't appear. Insert the potential video game-theme and the answer might be obvious.

    Anyone got Target DPCI numbers for the Season 11 sets?

    A small piece count as well.

    Looks like Cole's Dirt Bike is part of an early release that's also at Walmart as of today:

    I think it's a strategy to get folks to visit the LEGO Store/LEGO Shop Online. The smaller set being LEGO exclusive for a month is the lure; they want to get folks in the door to spend more.

    Unfortunately the Ice Samurai warrior head is already sold out on replacement bricks. Some army builders must have hit that one hard.

    Last year all we got was Stormbringer, and not even all of it at that. Hopefully we get more than one set this year.

    Looks like Lego took the high road on these with a limited budget. Same torso prints, generic legs, and looks like the same heads with one repainted Oni mask and one bandanna mask. That said, glad we're getting something rather than nothing. With these the odds of Season 10-related stuff coming out next summer drop dramatically. Now I'm curious to see if the season has these three Oni ala Superman 2 or the big guy and a small army.
  11. There are several sneak peek/update shots on Borg Tower here from a while back: https://www.instagram.com/aroundthebrick/ Interiors completed are the lobby and second floor (a Mongolian Grill-type restaurant that you'll see a top-down view of). There's also a balcony off the restaurant because of structural requirements. And it's cool to put figures there. And the elevator on the back manually goes up and down and can be locked into any floor. It is currently 12 stories and will top off at 14. Unfortunately the LDD files for this were lost in a computer crash so the top 2 floors (S8 Museum and Borg's office), which I had partially designed, now have to be redone from scratch. Ugh. I'll be focusing on reworking the side attachments next so they'll actually attach without falling apart. It's nice to get back into this.
  12. Started work on my interpretation of a 48x48 baseplate Borg Tower MOC that I've been wanting to do since Season 3. If all goes according to plan it will be the centerpiece of a larger city layout. All except the top floor (Borg's office) and top (Borg Logo, which will be challenging) are complete in LDD. Most floors are empty interiors (for now) save for the lobby, first floor (a restaurant) and second-to-top floor (loosely modeled after the Season 8 trailer). I have plans for the middle floors (Nindroid factory, etc.) that I'll add in the future. Lobby and first floor pieces are either ready or on the way from BL and PAB. Will update over time as it builds up to hopefully more than a few feet in height.

    This 4-part season is where the rumored Borg Tower set could come into play. We clearly see old Cyrus in the trailer. Who knows? We're in uncharted waters here where the next sets align with web shorts and the next season's toy supplement is completely unknown.

    This feels a little bit like Day of the Departed, only little web clips designed to tie up loose narrative ends and sell a wave of toys versus a TV special.

    I definitely saw the Oni. But thus far there's no sign of an Oni minifigure. Our only hope of getting one is if there's still another surprise set we haven't seen. The throwbacks fit with the theme of Legacy. This is a celebration of the brand heading into its 100th episode. The more I think about Oni taking the form of former villains, the more I think that's what's going to happen.

    What Oni minifigures. I suspect the Legacy connection in Season 10 will be Oni shapeshifting into all the former villains we get in the Legacy sets.

    Brickseek has most of the Legacy sets in the Target system with pricing. I wouldn't be surprised if the first sighting of "in stock" occurs within the next week.

    As someone who has built well more than half of a Borg Tower MOC for mini-figures that when completed will be over 5 feet tall, there's no way a $300 or less set will satisfy the height/width needed to make it look decent. If it does then I'll be damned and we'll have our first official legit LEGO skyscraper not counting the puny Avengers Tower. I'd almost rather it be a super detailed interior space or spaces. A cross-section of key areas. I just don't see how it will work as a modular with a ground floor and the top of the logo spire without looking super compressed. Unless that's done deliberately as to invite customizers to extend its height by buying multiple sets ala Detective's Office.

    EDIT -- nevermind. It's already out of stock. Grrr. Didn't help that Walmart didn't have a limit on purchases.

    Oni Titan and Docks are the only two listed as out of stock by me. Like Ninjago City they'll probably be online only.

    I expect quite a few new sets next year based on this:

    Walmart is shipping the Dragon Hunter Polybag right now. $3.97 with free shipping over $35.

    Gotcha. Looks like Walmart via the inventory checker isn't recognizing the set numbers just yet.
