    Harry Potter 2018 - Rumors & Discussion

    Someone on Reddit did it; I think they said they put the motor in the locomotive's tender (which they had to enlarge to accommodate it). Search Reddit for "2018 Hogwarts Express Running", here's a link:

    Simpsons sets that NEED to be made

    I never understood why Lego did this, when the Lego episode of The Simpsons featured normal minifig heads, just with new hair pieces. If this theme does ever return (after either Disney or Comcast buy Fox, probably), it might be easier and cheaper for Lego to reboot the theme without the moulded heads. Plus, using normal minifig heads would make it easier to give the characters different expressions, rather than simply "eyes open" or "eyes partly open".

    It’s from 76112, the App-Controlled Batmobile. Yes, it’s meant to be Batman’s Arkham Knight suit; Lego was never going to do a set based on those games, so including the design in this set instead is cool.

    From the official description for 76097: "The mech features... attachment points for 3 collectible Energy Infusers". So, batteries for the mech, basically.

    Harry Potter 2018 - Rumors & Discussion

    It's been claimed by Just2Good that Lego wants HP to be an "evergreen" (i.e. an ongoing) theme. If this wave sells as well as we all hope, there's no way they won't make a new Chamber of Secrets sooner or later. Given the quality of the beasts in the Newt's Suitcase set, I wouldn't even mind if the Basilisk was brick-built, maybe with a new moulded head. They only made the little Basilisk in the Great Hall because it needed a "baddie" for the heroes to fight, there's no reason to think they won't make a bigger, better Basilisk in a future set.

    Both sides have the mask, one side has a slight smile, the other has an angry expression.

    Just a guess, but a Lex Luthor minifig leaked a while ago, in a blue Superman-themed power suit from the new Rebirth comics. It’s almost certainly that.

    Future Marvel Superheroes Rumors & Speculation

    CM4Sci said on Reddit the other day, in a thread about a second wave of Infinity War sets, that “There’s only an Ant-Man and the Wasp set coming” (as has just been revealed). I hope he’s wrong for once, but I’m not holding my breath.

    Kids don't need to have read the books to enjoy HP. Give them a "good guy", a "bad guy", a cool magical animal, and maybe some of those new colourful blast pieces for spells, and they can make their own stories. Then, as they grow up, they will hopefully read the books, and want to get the "regular" Lego sets.

    Harry Potter 2018 - Rumors & Discussion

    Aren't there meant to be two retailer exclusives, a HP Quidditch set, and a FB set with young Dumbledore? If so, we're still missing the price for one set, unless I've completely misunderstood something. Sir von Lego is from Germany. Also, I don't mean to be rude, but Lego is a European toy, and you're on a website called Eurobricks. The price not being in American money isn't that unusual.

    Unikitty! 2018 - Rumors and Discussion

    I'm disappointed the Unikingdom box doesn't come with "the Dog" from TLM, but it all looks like bizarre creative fun! I hope this theme does well.

    So long as he actually looks a bit more like Peeves this time! I realise he wasn't in the films, but he was always described as brightly-coloured and solid (unless invisible), unlike the ghost minifigure. I think he had a jester's hat in the books, too; if they have a "ghost" in a new set wearing Harley Quinn's classic hat in a new colour, I'll be very happy, no matter what they officially call him!

    Hopefully, the lack of arm & leg printing actually bodes well for these being physical minifigs! If they were all dual-molded and covered in printing, it would probably mean they were just from the imagination of the game designers, rather than a Lego designer on a budget. That Ghost looks awesome, and Wasp is long overdue a minifig.

    The LEGO Batman Movie Set/CMF Rumors & Discussion

    I remember a designer called Brent Waller (no relation of Amanda, hopefully) talking last year about being approached by Lego to help design some of the various classic Bat-vehicles. I don't know how much was him, and how much was other designers, but I found a Flickr page with a few of his designs here, if you're interested.

    Harry Potter 2018 - Rumors & Discussion

    Has anyone confirmed that the HP D2C is actually Hogwarts? Lego is bringing out new trains this summer, and I was wondering if we might be getting a new Hogwarts Express / Kings Cross station? I have no insider info, this is pure speculation, but it would solve the whole "two Great Halls" debate. (Unless a trusted leaker has actually confirmed what the D2C is, in which case I apologise!)
