    LEGO Ninjago 2020

    They've been doing that for six or so years though. Kids have short attention spans

    MOCpages HAS BEEN DELETED!!!

    Sorry to hear that. Unfortunately that would mean we've now lost thousands of images that were posted on MOCpages and linked to this forum. As EB gets older, all of those early hosting services will have died out, so maybe the Admins should look into a way to keep those images backed up or something. It would be a shame to lose every piece of media posted on this forum.
  3. Welcome to Eurobricks @Hanwasyellowfirst ! I'm glad that another Castle fan and Ideas builder is joining the boards. Hopefully the Mods institute the "10k Badge" so you can get one

    LEGO Monkie Kid 2020

    Hate to say it because I'm a big supporter of original themes, but I hope it does too. The "mechs and bikes" thing is beyond played out and it's time to stop. This era of Lego is going to age horribly in the future because every single theme they put out now is Sci-Fi. Additionally, it looks like they used all of their resources perfecting Monkie Kid's designs, while they left some interns behind to slap together sets for the summer wave of Hidden Side. Now that we know they're capable of this much attention to detail and commitment to fleshing out a theme, I'm going to hold them to that standard in the future, but I'm pretty sure they're only doing this because they're desperate to finally break into the Chinese market.

    LEGO Monkie Kid 2020

    That certainly seems to be their strategy. AmeriJago is going to be an interesting theme when they get around to it. The Baseball Stadium-tank with hot dog cannons and a robotic Thomas Jefferson is going to be at the top of my wish list.

    Future Action and Adventure Themes

    I don't recall Monkie Kid being at the Toy Fair
  7. A huge congratulations to The Mountain Windmill, which has reached 10,000 supporters and is headed to the review stage! The creator, hanwasyellowfirst, now has three (!) projects that have reached 10k. I believe that's a record! The first project got rejected, but his Windmill and Zelda project are both in the upcoming review. Lego would be pretty heartless to reject all three, and I doubt they would be willing to make a Zelda set from an Ideas project, so that should improve the Windmill's chances considerably
  8. The Mountain Windmill by Hanwasyellowfirst has now crossed 9,000 supporters! Link to support it is below: https://ideas.lego.com/projects/f966f364-7cee-44ad-8870-6d7ff1cfe053 We can argue about whether or not this is properly medieval but I think that it is. It's inarguably a bit fantastical but it wouldn't look out of place in the countryside in a Castle-themed layout.

    LEGO Hidden Side 2020

    I look at those sets past the nice box art and presentation and I see a million stickers, huge wall panels, and poorly designed interiors, but I'm well aware that I'm in the minority Hidden Side has quite a few clunkers but its best designed sets are better than those.

    LEGO Hidden Side 2020

    I don't really agree with that. I've never been a huge Harry Potter guy but even from a design standpoint the newest wave is pretty weak and probably the worst one they've made since the line came back.

    LEGO Hidden Side 2020

    So, any theories as to who the new faction of villains are? The black knights show up in three sets and it seems like their leader is the Slenderman-type figure.

    Hello community!

    Hi there @tomaaki ! Nice to see another Castle fan joining the boards. Do you have a favorite set or subtheme in particular?

    LEGO Hidden Side 2020

    The castle looks better than I thought it would. A little too similar to the Monster Fighters version though. There's someone who's clearly important on the balcony, but I can't tell if it's Lady E. Two of the knight figures are included as well.

    LEGO Hidden Side 2020

    And if we were in 2006 you would have told me the exact same thing about both Space and Castle. This forum is getting old enough to the point where it's starting to repeat itself I'll quote this in a few years for ya.

    LEGO Hidden Side 2020

    If they knew that with the kind of accuracy you claim they have, there would never be a Lego theme that sold poorly. Clearly that's not the case. Companies can make mistakes, or lose their way. Lego freely admits that that applied to them as recently as '04. We'll probably never know how well Hidden Side actually sold, or why it kept going and bucked the trend of short-lived action themes. That's ridiculous and defeatist.
