    Lego City 2019 - Rumours, Speculation and Discussion

    Probably! They last updated them several years ago, this could be a different road configuration that still works with the current plates or a new system entirely. Excited to see what it ends up being.
  3. Yikes. I really don't like this. The set itself is okay, but the price is just ridiculous. $350 for a set with 2800 pieces? Also, there's hardly any details for what is supposed to be a collector's item. Just look at this image: The entire back half is nearly blank. I get that part of that is the landing pad, but there's barely anything in what looks to be a sizable portion of the interior. The landing pad itself is also a weird shape and throws off the otherwise circular structure, and the bit where Luke and Vader duel is within arm's reach of the Carbonite Chamber. Here's what really gets me. Some will argue that it's a playset, but I don't see many parents spending $350 to get their kid a relatively obscure city when they could get the Death Star or another more iconic set. Others will argue that it's a D2C, but it looks nothing like Cloud City, mostly due to its lack of roof panels, and it has almost zero display value because you have to look closely to even figure out what it is in the first place. To be honest if kind of looks like someone attempted to MOC Cloud City out of a destroyed Millennium Falcon. Needless to say, I won't be buying this!

    I love the layout of the site and it looks like you put a lot of hard work into it! Will you be adding anything from after 2000?

    Harry Potter 2018 - Rumors & Discussion

    Thanks for the picture, it's much appreciated. Based on this I think it'll be minifig scale and about $200. I also think that it'll be the only set released this winter, and more HP will be coming next August.

    LEGO Ninjago 2019

    Ninjago is related to Ninja, but Lego never said that Ninjago was a Castle theme. Ninja was only really a Castle theme in the first place because it was set in roughly the same time period, but Ninjago is set in some sort of futuristic City. Nexo retained its Castle vibe by presenting itself as a far future in which society still stuck to medieval practices...Ninjago didn’t. Ninjago is its own theme, Nexo is a subtheme of Castle. I don’t think the world will implode if a new Castle theme and Ninjago ran side by side next year.

    LEGO Ninjago 2019

    If you want to get super technical, there were Castle sets released this year. Now I’m not even going to attempt to convince you that this year’s NK sets have even a smidgen of Castle-y theming, because they don’t, but in Lego’s mind, it’s a Castle theme. Therefore, Castle is still an evergreen, and it was even confirmed a while ago that regular Castle was just taking a breather during NK’s run. I can’t be the only one around here who’s positive, right?

    If that's the case, you probably won't be seeing those in the winter. The set names revealed so far are already enough for a large wave, and with TLM2 coming out in January I don't think TLG would go much bigger than that.

    He's certain it's fake because he's just2good. You gotta trust him on these things

    Winter Village Sets - Rumours and Discussion

    That's disappointing if it's true. I get that re-releases appeal to newer collectors but I own all of the buildings (besides the Toy Shop remake) and it does nothing for me. Simply changing the color and a few minor details doesn't warrant a re-release. However, if they're going to make a significantly different cottage, I would probably buy it. That would satisfy both new and old collectors of the theme.

    Future Star Wars Sets

    That's a reeaally light wave. Mostly just Juniors stuff and Microfighters. Interesting. I'm not getting my hopes up just yet about the Clone pack, but if it's all 501st I'd be stoked.

    Johnny Thunder and the Lost Tomb of Ramesses VIII

    Great work as usual, Gary! You've really nailed the realism on this, aside from the mummies of course.

    Harry Potter 2018 - Rumors & Discussion

    My bad, didn't look back at the original post when I was typing that. It's currently planned as a trilogy, that's why I said that. I guess we're in agreement, no?

    Harry Potter 2018 - Rumors & Discussion

    "Evergreen" is a very specific term that only Lego can determine. Just because something has run for a long time doesn't mean it's evergreen. To date, the only themes officially declared as evergreen are City, Space, Castle, Star Wars, and Ninjago, if I recall correctly. If JW is not evergreen for that exact reason. Lego only makes sets for each new movie, and they don't make JW sets in years without a JW film. JW is a trilogy, and after the final film comes out in 2021, Lego will discontinue the theme.

    Harry Potter 2018 - Rumors & Discussion

    Minecraft and Speed Champions are not evergreen, and I actually see Minecraft ending the second kids stop playing the game, which could happen soon. Jurassic World will likely be discontinued after the third and final JW film is released. You likely won't see more JW sets until if/when Universal decides to make more movies. Yeah, it'll last as long as NK for sure. Evergreen is another story.
