  1. Marvel Superheroes 2018 - Set Discussion

    Are we sure that that doesn't mean "Good Guy Seriously Huge Investment of Parts?"
  2. DC Superheroes 2018 - Set Discussion

    I've collected the whole line, and I've never paid more than 70% of retail price for any of them. And I haven't had to wait more than a month or two from their on-sale dates. I love the concept, and I'm totally in favor of it, but I've never seen a theme get discounted more steeply or more quickly.
  3. Marvel Superheroes 2018 - Set Discussion

    EDIT: Just double-checked the listing, and it has photos of the minifigs and boxes, and it's fulfilled by Walmart, so it appears to be the complete set. But thanks for the heads up!
  4. Marvel Superheroes 2018 - Set Discussion

    Black Panther Royal Talon Fighter Attack (76100) is available for 20% off at Walmart in the U.S., but it's listed as "Black Panther Good Guy Vehicle" on the website.
  5. Future Marvel Superheroes Rumors & Speculation

    I'd love that, but that seems really, really optimistic. Lego needs much longer than 6-7 months to design a licensed set, get it approved by the licensors, and produce it at the volume they need to support retailers across the globe. Plus, I don't think there's currently any kid-friendly FF or X-men TV shows or movies to help drum up interest. Those characters aren't even in the most recent Lego Avengers game. We're probably at least a year and a half out from any significant FF or X-Men sets.
  6. Future Marvel Superheroes Rumors & Speculation

    Also (and I'm not entertainment lawyer), I think the bigger concern was that profits from any FF merchandise that was sold would have to be split between Marvel/Disney and Fox, as the distributor. Even if Constantin retains their FF movie option, I don't think that impacts merchandising proceeds.

    Considering that Thanos was created as a second-rate knockoff of Darkseid, this would have been the funniest and most appropriate thing Lego could have done!

    If it actually goes through (and that's a big if), it certainly won't hurt the chances of that happening.
  9. LEGO Dimensions Discussion

    Is it the same Aquaman from the Fun Pack (71237)? https://www.toysrus.com/buy/lego-dimensions/lego-dimensions-fun-pack-dc-comics-aquaman-1000561492-68635526
  10. The LEGO Batman Movie Set/CMF Rumors & Discussion

    It's actually a pretty diabolical scheme - if you only collect the CMF, or if you only buy the Manor, you can't have the full set of FaF minifigs. Lego is extraordinarily good at separating us completists from our dollars...
  11. DC Superheroes 2015 Rumors & Discussions

    Hey, if you live in the U.S. and missed out on your Lightning Lad Target Gift Cube, it's back in stock! https://www.thebrickfan.com/target-2015-lego-minifigure-gift-box-5004077-available-again/
  12. The LEGO Batman Movie Set/CMF Rumors & Discussion

    I just found out the hard way that, as of October 1st, you can no longer use Toys R' Us rewards toward the purchase of Lego sets. BUT, you can buy Dimensions sets with them, since they're categorized as video games, not Lego. So if you've been saving up the points and haven't yet purchased the Lego Batman Movie Story Pack or the Excalibur Batman Fun Pack, those are your best bet for using your rewards for TLBM sets.
  13. LEGO Dimensions Discussion

    Here's a tip for any of you who, like me, had saved up a bunch of Toys R' Us Rewards for holiday shopping, only to find out that you can no longer use them on Lego: Dimensions sets are considered video games, not Lego sets. So you should be able to still use your Rewards points toward them.
  14. The LEGO Batman Movie Set/CMF Rumors & Discussion

    I hope you're right. The novelty of wacky batsuits has worn off for me. Also, it makes it so much harder to feel for the ones you actually want. And now that the keychain is in wider distribution, I'm going to bet five spacebucks that Kiss Kiss Batman shows up in the CMF. I can't think of any other keychains that weren't also traditional minifigs at one point or another.
  15. Lego Licensed Parts available from Bricks & Pieces

    Sorry to go off-topic, but what's the brand of desk mat that you've got there? Looks like it would be super-handy for quickly estimating element dimensions!
