    Wizarding World 2022 - Rumors & Discussion

    They probably hadn't finished the proper renders yet; this set wasn't supposed to be revealed for a few days. Hopefully they'll update the official site, those renders are terrible... although it makes you realise how good they usually are!

    Marvel Superheroes 2022 - Rumors & Discussion

    We're apparently getting a new Sanctum Sanctorum which is partially based on Multiverse of Madness, set 76218. But yes, it's almost certainly to avoid spoilers. We only got one set based on No Way Home (and two sets "based on" earlier Spidey movies but with outfits that he wears in No Way Home), and the latest Disney+ TV shows haven't had any CMFs or sets (yet). A lot of Marvel merchandise is nowadays being released long after the initial theatrical/streaming release of the film/show, anything which may be considered a spoiler. Hopefully we'll get sets later rather than not at all... if we DO get a MoM Sanctum this year, I'm hoping it means we'll also get a NWH final showdown set with all the heroes and villains!

    Maybe it's an early version sent out to reviewers in advance? I always assumed they got a "regular" production run of the sets they review, but maybe not, because that does NOT look official. The Hogwarts with corners is such a marked improvement, though!

    The T-Rex should be dark tan, not reddish brown in my opinion, plus it would make the grey joint pieces less obvious. Everything else about the set is awesome though, so I might try to MOD Rexy when I get it.

    Book exclusives don't get new moulds, and Klarion will (hopefully) get a unique hairpiece for his devil-horn hair. If Klarion had come in the book, he would probably have gotten Wolverine's hair or some other existing hairpiece, so I'm happy he's NOT in the book! Lets just hope we get some other Young Justice characters in whatever set he eventually comes in; that show has been long overdue some Lego sets!

    Marvel Superheroes 2021 - Rumors & Discussion

    Peni Parker pilots a mech. Lego loves mechs. I'm just shocked it hasn't happened yet. I don't know if Peni is in the new movie(s), but even if she's not, I'm hopeful that Lego will include her in a tie-in set. Due to the complicated relationship between Disney/Marvel and Sony (Marvel makes the money from Spidey merchandise, not Sony, who only profit from the movies themselves), they may not make official sets based on the movie. This may have changed in recent years; after the whole "Spidey's Leaving the MCU!" fan outcry when Far From Home came out, the two seem to have a renewed partnership which may extend to better merchandising. But there's no way Lego won't make some sort of Spidey sets for this, and if they're not "official" sets but just tie-ins like last time, that actually makes it more likely they will include characters that were only in the first movie (although I'm still hoping Peni is in the sequel!)

    New Wolverine is crying out for the new shoulder pad 41637 in bright blue, but I'm loving that it's based on his original 70s' costume, not a repeat of the Astonishing one as was originally reported!

    I'm imagining a small wave of sets first to test the waters, to see how well the revived series goes down with the Lego-buying public. £20 "Wolverine vs Sabretooth", £35 "Juggernaut Rampage", and £50 "Magneto vs the X-Men", something like that. If they are popular (the sets AND the show itself), I'd imagine a D2C X-Mansion to cash in on adults who are nostalgic for the original show will follow. It took ages to get a Spider-Man D2C, so I don't expect Lego to do this immediately for X-Men, but I'm sure it'll come sooner rather than later.

    I hope TLG takes note & makes their own version; that looks incredible! Either a £130-ish playset version with just Gringotts and a single underground chamber, or a £200+ D2C with more detail as a minifig-scale display piece like Diagon Alley. I know one of the designers said they weren't doing Deathly Hallows stuff, but I hope that's just Lego's usual secrecy about upcoming waves. Even if they were telling the truth, I hope this MOC shows them the error of their ways!

    They won't do it while Diagon Alley is on shelves (in case someone much richer than me buys it JUST for the quidditch uniforms), but afterwards a new set or minifig pack with all four house quidditch teams represented would be ideal. Stick Harry, Draco, Cedric and Cho in a minifig pack, maybe add the padding the quidditch players wore in later films for variety, and done! (Bonus points if Cedric comes with a burned stuck-by-lightning head print!)

    Harry Potter 2021 - Rumors & Discussion

    "Something very special indeed for Harry Potter fans"... My dream would be announcing an updated LEGO Harry Potter video game, using the new mechanics for the Skywalker Saga game and with the newer character designs from the revived HP theme. Worst case scenario, they're announcing the winner of the fan designing contest. Either way, it's exciting times!

    I'm digging the prices. £85 RRP for the two bigger sets with all seven minifigs, and the sets all look accurate (from what we've seen) to the movie. Okay, the bikes are fugly as heck, but that's the movie's fault, and since Catwoman is in the batcave anyway it doesn't matter to me. If these sets was for a new Star Wars movie, each single main character would be in a different £100+ set, so I'm more than happy with sets that are a nice balance of accurate yet affordable! I just hope the movie is as good...

    I guess they're testing the waters, seeing how well Wolverine sells to kids nowadays compared to better known heroes from the MCU. Looking forward to getting a comic-accurate Iron Man; the Mighty Micro version was close, but the helmet print was too cartoony for my tastes.

    Gotham City Police headquarters. A tall gothic building with the Bat-signal on top, and various supervillains attacking / escaping the cells. I'd love a Daily Planet (the Superman family and their rogues don't get nearly enough love), but it would probably be too similar to the Daily Bugle.

    Harry Potter 2021 - Rumors & Discussion

    Some people predicted that the "Icons" set might be the Horcruxes. What nobody guessed was that the Horcruxes would be released one at a time in different sets! The diary in this one, Hufflepuff's Cup in a "Treasures of Gringotts" set in a few years, Ravenclaw's Diadem in a "Room of Hidden Things" set a few years after that, etc (I'm joking... I hope!) The set is a nice idea, and I love that Hedwig, but I can't help but think they could have given Hedwig a better perch than several random school books. Harry's trunk, or a cauldron, would be more interesting. The vibe of you going off on your own adventure to Hogwarts is brilliant, but unless you're Hermione, you'll want to pack more than JUST books!
