    Jurassic World 2020 - Rumors & Discussion

    Sounds awesome; I expect he'll get a minifig in the most expensive set (ala Lockwood Estate). I hope the movie Dodgson meets the same sticky end as his book counterpart!

    Harry Potter 2020 - Rumors & Discussion

    Hopefully we'll get more student packs in the future; representatives of the four house Quidditch teams, winter theme with hats and scarfs, Battle of Hogwarts fighters, that sort of thing. We could easily get obscure students that way rather than being shoehorned into the regular sets, such as the Quidditch players or Dumbledore's Army members.
  3. Is anyone else disappointed they missed the chance to put the Sith holocron wayfinder behind a panel in the Emperor's throne room?

    Marvel Superheroes 2020 - Rumors & Discussion

    Maybe, but the first two were movie tie-ins. The new CMF is strictly DC Superheroes, and I was wondering if that was treated differently by Lego from a licensing perspective. Like THELEGOBATMAN says, it's only a matter of time until we get a Marvel CMF, I was just wondering if the solo DC CMF was a hint that a Marvel CMF would be sooner rather than later, per the sharing of the Lego Superheroes brand.

    The Superheroes brand includes both Marvel and DC. Although the two lines are not identical in terms of number of sets, pricing etc, does anyone know if DC getting it's own CMF this year increase the likelihood of Marvel getting one soon for "balance"? Surely Marvel wouldn't want DC to be seen to dominate a corner of the market?

    Harry Potter 2020 - Rumors & Discussion

    They made a reuseable body for bigfigs where they just have to change the head, like Marvel's Hulk or DC's Killer Croc or Disney's Maui, so clearly they can use that across various licensed themes without a problem (with different heads and printing, obviously). They could possibly use it in Harry Potter, but I can't think of too many characters / creatures it would be suitable for. The existing Hagrid mould is better than the bigfig mould (I can't imagine Hagrid with those huge beefy arms!). The troll in the bathroom might be a good shout, though, that's a possibility when they do more Philosospher's / Sorcerer's Stone sets.

    DC Superheroes 2020 - Rumors & Discussion

    They have had sweepstakes on Lego's new VIP site for older SDCC exclusive figs, so maybe they could do it this way? But Guyon2002 is probably right, they could just skip this year, there's nothing year-specific about the SDCC exclusives.

    If it means getting most of the missing Endgame versions of MCU characters (chainmail Cap, fat Thor, etc), and maybe some missing characters from earlier films, I'm all for it.

    DC Superheroes 2020 - Rumors & Discussion

    Kids do care. One shop in my town STILL has leftover Star Wars Episode I merchandise they haven't been able to shift, and Star Wars was (in theory) a guarantee of huge toy sales. A good movie sparks the imagination and makes kids want to make their own adventures with those characters; bad movies don't. And so far, the DCEU has either failed to spark the imagination (BvS, Justice League), or hasn't made much of an impact in the public conciseness (Shazam, Birds of Prey... both which didn't get Lego sets). Hopefully 'The Batman' will do both and generate interest in all further DC movies, but until then, it's gonna be Batman or nothing, sadly.

    Marvel Superheroes 2020 - Rumors & Discussion

    I wonder if the CMF will be based on the comics or the MCU. There are so many comics designs we'd probably never get any other way (Scarlet Witch with her classic tiara, stuff like that), but then there are so many missing MCU outfits too, including a lot of the Endgame cast and Spidey's bosco suit. Comics would be more colourful for kids, but Disney might prefer MCU to help promote Disney+. Anyone got any thoughts which it might be?

    Maybe they thought that having two mostly red busts would look too similar on shelves, so they went with red and green so they stand out. If they sell, I'm sure Spidey will be in a second wave.

    Licensed CMFs are almost always accompanied by a D2C. If HP CMF series 2 has been delayed, does that mean the D2C will be held back?

    Tom Riddle looks great! Wish he came with an undamaged diary, but that's the only niggle. Amazed to see he doesn't re-use the General Hux / Professor Snape legs!

    Is the Venomsaurus Rex in the cartoons now? It was introduced in the decidedly non-kiddie-friendly Old Man Logan comic story, and I was wondering if this is just Lego's dark humour (like putting Joker in his Killing Joke shirt, and with a camera, in TLBM CMFs)? I love that they gave Spider-Ham his hot dog from the "Caught in a Ham" cartoon!

    Maybe, but the antenna would need to be printed on, and it would need a new custom body with wings anyway; we'll probably get a whole pixie someday with the same sort of scale and detail as baby Groot from the Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 sets (either in a Defence Against the Dark Arts Cornish Pixies set, or with Lockhart in the next CMF series).
