    Harry Potter 2020 - Rumors & Discussion

    Yeah, I’ve never understood the theory that a new mold being introduced in a licensed theme can’t be used anywhere else. Obviously many of them are very specific to the theme like hairpieces or helmets, but even the HP wands have been used in sets like the Treehouse, Corner Garage, and some Marvel sets. I don’t think introducing a piece in a licensed theme means it can’t be used anywhere else.

    I was pleasantly surprised when the Magical Treasury book showed up at my door yesterday, since in my experience books ordered from Amazon never arrive on their release day and I was expecting the package to be something else I had ordered. I haven’t even taken the figure out because I want to wait for the new sets to arrive before pulling out anything HP-related and making a mess, but luckily my sets have been cleared after being at customs for two weeks so hopefully I’ll have them soon!

    I think we’ll see the advent calendar first since the Star Wars one has already been revealed, and I’m expecting the CMF and D2C reveals to be very close together. I’m not expecting the D2C reveal before July 25th.

    Marvel Superheroes 2020 - Rumors & Discussion

    Now that I’ve built the new Avengers Tower set, I have to say that I don’t like it as much as I thought I would. While it’s nice that it’s bigger than the 2015 one, the old one was much better in terms of features and what you could do with it. The blowing out the windows function on this one doesn’t work anywhere near as well as the old tower, the top floor of the new one is just wasted space compared to the stud shooters and deplorable drone on the original, and there was also a better deployment function for the Iron Legion suits in the 2015 set. The new set is definitely a great build, but it just doesn’t feel like as good of an upgrade as I expected.

    Yeah, I agree with this for sure. I LOVE the 2010-2011 sets as they’re the most nostalgic from my childhood and never had an issue with them as a kid or even now. The new sets just try so much harder to give us new things and more accurate designs and I really appreciate the love and attention poured into this theme, which is why when little things fall short of expectations like reused faces it doesn’t bother me too much. The only gripe I have with the reboot is the unprinted dress pieces on figures that really need printing.

    It’s listed as September 1st on the US website, but the August 1st date is probably still correct for other countries.

    Same here, they’ve been there for over a week. On one hand, I wish I had paid the €8 extra for DHL Express shipping, but on the other I was insanely busy in June and wouldn’t have been able to properly appreciate the sets when I was so stressed out. July is a lot calmer and I’m just hoping the sets come soon. I don’t regret importing them (yet) especially since all the August sets appear to be delayed until September here in the US.

    DC Superheroes 2020 - Rumors & Discussion

    Yeah, I’m also disappointed that they never made a Bat-Train, although I do love the Bat-Space Shuttle set. I think the concept of a boat mobile command center is a lot cooler than a semi truck. I do like this new set, but my main gripe is that the space could’ve been used more efficiently, as it was in the original Agents set and the Ultra Agents truck. It particularly annoys me that the cab only has room for a single figure despite being absolutely gigantic.

    Jurassic World 2020 - Rumors & Discussion

    Exactly, that’s why I’m excited. Even characters from The Lost World would just be more minifigures in generic tactical or adventure gear or whatever, and I honestly believe there’s not really any figures worth making from the third movie. I most certainly don’t need minifigures of the annoying Kirbys. I think Dominion will give us a lot more variety in figures than we’ve had in the past which is where my excitement is stemming from.

    Jurassic World 2020 - Rumors & Discussion

    Well, we’d hopefully be getting new variants of characters like Maisie and Zia, but I’m excited for figures like older versions of the original trio, Lowery, Dichen Lachman’s character, and now Dodgson as well. I don’t particularly care about getting characters from The Lost World and Jurassic Park III as minifigures to be honest, except maybe Sarah Harding.

    Jurassic World 2020 - Rumors & Discussion

    Oh yeah, Zia is definitely a standout of the line and I love Ellie’s figure as well. I’ve just never really been excited about the figures because honestly after 2018 I just feel like it’s such an Owen and Claire overload, and they barely get new variants and don’t get new face prints. I’d really like some different expressions for Owen considering how many sets he’s been in over the last couple years. There are some nice figures occasionally like the park visitors in last year’s wave but this is the first time I actually care about seeing the figures instead of just the dinosaurs, if that makes sense.

    Wow, I ordered the sets yesterday at 9:00 AM and one of my packages is already out for delivery with the others coming tomorrow. That’s the fastest shipping I’ve ever seen from LEGO! Hopefully it’s a sign that things are slowly getting back to normal with their production and delivery.

    Yeah. Being able to rebuild it into three different suits was cool, but I was like “no, you have to resist”. Then I saw that you can make the giant mosaic out of three sets and now I’ll cave. I’m hoping they go on sale at other retailers eventually though.

    Jurassic World 2020 - Rumors & Discussion

    Honestly, I think that the Dominion wave for next year may be the first time we care about figures in Jurassic World sets. Obviously we all wanted the original Jurassic Park characters as figures and we eventually got them through the D2C and velociraptor set, but this is the first time I’m actually excited to see the figures and not just the dinosaurs for this theme. That’s not to say the minifigures in the sets are bad, but they’re very expected- too many Owens, several Claires, some other main characters and then the army builder figures. However, Dominion’s massive cast really has me excited to see the figures for the new sets!

    I can’t believe they’re going to make me buy three of these mosaics...and I can’t believe I’m going to do it because I’m a sucker for LEGO Marvel. I do think $120 is a bit too expensive considering they’re pushing consumers to buy 3-4 copies of each set. $100 would be a lot better.
