  1. ...and I wish people would stop going into the Space forum to tell people that they shouldn't want more Space sets.

    Future Castle Sets?

    Future Castle Sets?

    I imagine this will be of interest to you all:
  4. I find it very unlikely that a cancelled Castle theme got that far into the development process without us knowing. For example the "Dots" theme was cancelled right before its planned launch but by then we had the theme's name and set numbers. Here's what I think it happening: either that shield is from a S19 minifigure that was axed from the lineup at the last minute, or it's from S19 and for some reason this piece is circulating. I don't see any scenario where this relates to a full Castle theme.
  5. Is that a real piece or just artwork? If it's a piece, is it showing up in the minifigure station or somewhere else?

    Future Castle Sets?

    I get the gist but it's a little unclear. Basically we have to pledge a certain amount of money if we want to buy the set, and if enough people pledge it goes into production? If that's the case, sign me up

    Looks great! Does the winner get made into a real set?

    LEGO vs. Held der Steine

    Thank you to @kabel and others for providing context, I was having a hard time figuring out what was going on using Google Translate What I gather from this is that Lego is intimidating their critics with thinly veiled lawsuits over frivolous things. If that's truly the case, consider me disappointed, but unsurprised. I will note that I've seen a number of larger youtube channels that used to give honest reviews turn into Lego's biggest fans overnight once TLG started sending them free products and endorsing them. Having a stranglehold over public opinion is seemingly a good business tactic, but I view it as being quite scummy since much of that propaganda is aimed at younger kids. Unfortunately 2019 is Lego's worst year in over a decade for a lot of us and I'm starting to think that the company is beginning a slow spiral around the drain. This year I only intend to buy Benny's Space Squad and a couple of polybags, and nothing at all in the summer. It's a shame that Lego is losing a lot of us as customers but I don't intend to spend money on a bad product in the interim. Hopefully they can get their act together and their declining sales will push them to make some much-needed changes to their product lineup. I never doubted that this was the case, and I'll have to watch some more of Thomas's videos (Do you have any links to videos where he mentions this?). There was, is and always will be a market for those themes but Lego seems to be opting for the flashy licenses and Big Bangs to serve as "replacements" for them. It's like trying to put a square peg in a round hole.

    LEGO Nexo Knights 2018

    Thanks for the heads up, never would have seen that otherwise. I think that this might possibly be the best deal I've ever seen on S@H, I mean that's practically a dollar for a figure. I just bought several more to add to my collection.

    LEGO Nexo Knights 2018

    Here are the tweets in question: Although Jestro turning evil a third time is a bit tiresome, I found the "Jester-bot" concept interesting. I also like how Monstrox corrupts the Dragovs, who look significantly more interesting than the identical vampires we got this year. After seeing these I have no doubts that there would have been a summer wave that contained "Paladin Clay", members of the Wizard's Council, Vampire Ruina, winged vampires and a few more named antagonists. He also seems to confirm that the fifth season never aired because it lacked funds. Sidenote: Vincent Tong (Jestro's voice actor) makes it pretty clear in the comments that he wants the show to come back. Possibly an outside chance for the last season to air at some point?

    LEGO Nexo Knights 2018

    We should find out within the next few weeks whether we'll get one next year, or else I'm probably taking a yearlong break from posting on here. What happened in the last issue? I feel that Nexo got a lot of unfair hate. It turned out to be a Castle theme only in name, but I highly doubt we would have gotten anything historical in the last three years regardless. I also think that people are a little too harsh on the Stone Monsters, they were pretty good for what they were. I would have a appreciated a few more named characters and a stronghold of some kind for them, but it was really the knight's vehicles that made year 2 the worst year of the theme. Merry Christmas to everyone who celebrates it, by the way.

    The Lego Movie 2 - The Second Part 2019 Set Discussion

    Indeed I did! You all are welcome to continue discussing the morality of leaks and leakers over there.

    The Lego Movie 2 - The Second Part 2019 Set Discussion

    Well this thread has gone downhill fast I don't think it's reasonable to treat Lego leakers like they're involved in some sort of high-profile drug ring. It's really...dare I say, not important?
  14. Thanks for the confirmation. I think TLG is making the right decision to cut off Brickheadz before it jumps the shark. There were a ton of them this year to the point of oversaturation, and I think that most people ended up being satisfied with the wide range of properties Lego covered.

    Do kids today like Classic Space?

    Good question. I think that Benny's Space Squad will be a bestseller, but partially due to the fact that it is a $10 set with a main character, four minifigures and two vehicles. Lego is really only dipping a toe in the water with these two sets, but I figure that the much larger spaceship from 2014 must have sold well enough to warrant more sets.
