    Marvel Superheroes 2020 - Rumors & Discussion

    Wow, seeing these pics now I definitely agree with both points. Maybe I’ll pick it up and display it at a sale instead of just trying to get Rescue separately. Also, Lego will apparently have at least a minor presence at SDCC at home with some posters being sold online by artist @danveesenmeyer on Instagram for a limited time. He has a Spider-Man print and Mandalorian & Baby Yoda print.

    Ah awesome, I appreciate it. Will do.

    Oh wow fair enough then, I actually didn’t know any that. Hopefully fans have seen design manager Samuel Johnson’s tweet on the topic and will make and support more Bionicle projects in the future and not give up hope. I can definitely see where the community is coming from now.

    Lego Ideas seems like it is Lego’s way of being able to sell products to audiences who may not usually buy Lego, therefore the product choices are usually more adult/teen oriented and therefore they tap into either nostalgia or making Lego builds that are more “serious” for lack of a better word. The former is the case for Seinfeld and Home Alone (two of the most well known pieces of media that get mentioned on social media and in real life year after year, especially by millennials). The latter is the case for the typewriter as it falls into the same category as the Maze set or the piano or even the ship in a bottle where it is Lego that is displayable and workable. It is more along the lines of Lego as a medium of art. I am not a fan of those sets but I’m sure Lego has the stats to show they sell well and sell well with a group they may be trying to target. Bionicle was fun while it lasted but constraction themes sadly don’t seem to sell too well in the modern era of Lego; if they did we would have them. Hopeful Bionicle fans’ reasoning for it getting chosen was that Lego wouldn’t need to get a new IP (which is weird because Lego has no problem getting one for Ideas sets) and that it would test the waters for a Bionicle return. There was a Bionicle return in 2015 and it went under again, what could have changed in 5 years time? Also, the Home Alone set is so well designed, I was very happy when it hit 10K and now when it got approved.

    Just realized from Ashnflash’s video that the mystery tile is cylinder head Tony was fixing on his hot rod in Iron Man 1. I suppose it could also be the head gasket since its just a 1x2 tile so its really thin.

    No problem, and same here but probably with the comics Mary Jane hair instead of the rubber Friends one. It almost looks like the arms are meant to go with the movie figure, it makes BW look more like how she does in the movie poster. I think the MK2 is pearl silver, the same color as the stud shooters on the hot rod. As for the other 2 questions, I’m not sure. The 3D printers a good call, I just thought it was a specialized display since the suit is so much smaller than the others. The tile is confusing me too. Is it a remote for the lab? Is it a remote key for the car? Is it some kind of computer chip Tony’s in the process of programming?

    Super Mario 2020 - Rumors & Discussion

    I’m very back and forth with this theme, but after seeing the reviews, I find it very hard to believe that kids will enjoy playing with these more than once or twice and want all the expansions. Seeing Just2Good use the Boomer Bills set play feature made me realize how not fun it really is. Its either far too easy or too hard to be fun depending on whether you place Mario on the studded side versus the tiled side. I truly cannot see anyone having hours of fun with these compared to a regular $10 Lego City set Integrating tech into physical toys is many companies’ current strategy of trying to be a part of the digital age that we will always continue to be in and compete with phones and video games, but those are so convenient and require no real set up unlike these sets. Not to mention how the box art is all one color. Every time Lego uses a solid colored background its either meant for an older, adult audience like they are doing with some expensive collector sets this year; or their Educational line of sets for schools. They probably figured it would help sets stand out and help parents see the value in all that they are getting in the set, but I think its sending mixed signals to kids and they will probably associate it with school or learning and not fun and play. (Not saying learning can’t be fun but it just doesn’t seem to be the goal for kids with these sets). The best parts of this line right now for people who wanted it to be minifigure scale are the Banzai Bills, the finish line Castle, the finish line flag(s), Mario’s house, the power-up blocks, the arrow signs, and the prints on the front of the Thwomp. Those are all awesome. The Blooper blind bag build is also really nice as a display with its underwater coral feature, but everything else is either too big or two square.

    DC Superheroes 2020 - Rumors & Discussion

    Don’t know if its been mentioned here already but Lego has been selling polybags on their site recently and one of them is The Lego Batman Movie Disco Batman/Tears of Batman one. Its $3.99, pretty great deal especially if anyone missed out on it. Much better than ebay and even Bricklink prices. As I recall it was a GwP. https://www.lego.com/en-us/product/disco-batman-tears-of-batman-30607?CMP=AFC-AffiliateUS-oSv/vWYkQIY-2014326-115554-30607

    For sure. I especially like that they made whats inside each floor pretty easily removable to let buyers customize whats inside. This set has definitely grown on me. Does anyone know what those small metallic things are meant to be near the hinges on each floor? Security cameras? If so that is pretty cool for some reason

    True, they were probably looking at this and got lazy with the reactor so they went with a repeat torso. And after a quick search I realized the Prototype armor is named that in the game too and looks fairly accurate.

    I would welcome comic AIM figures with open arms. Especially if they looked really good. Its the same reason I didn’t mind so many Outriders in the last 2 years. As for the Armory. I really like the hot rod build and its creative use of stud shooters in the front. The colors and transition to the flames looks really clean. Tony Stark’s shirt is definitely inspired by the game just without the arc reactor, which would’ve been cool if they included it. But, even though the “MK2” looks nice and I might try and get the new Rescue, I still can’t see myself adding the new figs to my own HoA MOC because of the helmets.

    Rescue is my favorite aspect of these sets. The bright red and shiny silver contrast is amazing. Looks accurate to the comics, might have to Bricklink it. Not a fan of the MCU suits with comic helmets. I understand why they did it but its gotta be one or the other imo like Pepper or the Invincible Iron Man. Blue Steel I might have to make an exception though because it looks so unique with the color and shoulder pads, but probably won't make it into my HoA. Hulkbuster was good looking until the awful helmet. That said, it still might be my favorite set of the wave. Avengers Tower just looks like the many, many so-so MOCs I've seen of the original version.

    I like the shaping of the top of the helmet and the shaping of the face plate with all the gold, but it kind of falls apart towards the bottom “jaw” part because the angled red pieces make it look too thick. Taking them off and only leaving the thickness of 1 angled red plate on each side might make it look better. Regardless, not a fan of what it is for the price so I can’t see myself buying it.

    I remember his sketches on Flickr, they’ve always been so good. I’m glad he became a designer this theme is a surprise but really great so far.
