    non, a new one would have been better and within Legos capacities to produce, unlike helmets which are not oversized - this is hard due to proportions as said. But yeah, I'd have prefered the "young" Ahsoka piece for all figs. But until Lego decides to make a new piece for her or a new helmet for Mando - we are stuck with what we have. Anyway cool about Saxtons headpiece. I really thought they'd reuse some random one as they did for more important characters.

    besides the BB team looks quite nice. I'd actually prefer some consistancy between all the different helmets (BB just don't look like clones to me with original armor). And about Tech; these kind of helmets are always oversized. It's due to minifig-proportions. With Ahsoka on the other hand; her Lekku are just looking bad. And TLG could do better. They just didn't reuse the old mold (which were also printed much better I might say) again - unfortunately. But in that case at least it's quite easy to get one online.

    DC Superheroes 2021 - Rumors & Discussion

    not a DC fan here but the Lego movies were among the best and most creative enslish language movies of the last 10 years I think. And TLBM I think was the best in terms of execution. Really sad to see but I didn't expect any sequels. What I don't get is that the movies actually did make money - was it the sets that didn't sell or what? Because only TLNM and TLM2 were not tooo profitable but they still made enough to justify the production.

    Oh for sure. I never understood why TLG didn't make molds more costumizable.

    I think they don'T sacrifice new-mold budget on UCS ships for figures. Like never. And for Cody you need that new mold. So what do people expect?

    Ninjago getting more popular?

    In general: I think it's similar to cinema. There's just so many products out there; you always need a recognizable brand - otherwise noone will see your expensive "John Carter" movie and you'll loose your investment. Like cinema - Lego deals also with an international audience so you gotta satisfy many tastes but at the same time refrain from pushing away as many diverse people as possible. I doubt classic themes can stand alone - so everything is covered by licences. While those are limited by source material, themes like ninjago can give us something more creative and diverse (colourful vehicles and creatures instead of the bland grey with a little white, blue, black and red vehicles. Also they come from Lego's own inspiration and themes; they don't have to pay big money to disney so there should be some motivation to promote this (which is why I think some licence themes get a bad treatment). Other then this you got your classic stuff - police, fire trucks, cars, etc. ________________________________________________________________ ..getting more popular - I have no accurate numbers and I think this is always difficult to say. Many TV shows or movies were flops and cancelled but became incredibly popular afterwards. Some maybe only stayed niche products and therefore remain through a vocal minority but would not sustain themselves again. Who can say what is what? Again I'd need numbers. The drastic price increase since this wave could have many reasons - like other themes with more effort effecting the pricing. Proper availabilty on a reachable streaming service for sure is a good indicator for a wider range. Ninjago - until now - has always sucked when it was about "HOW can we watch it". New episodes are available on Youtube long before anywhere else.

    can you explain this jar-jar phenomenon to me? I only follow this thread more since short time, I consider myself traumatised from the prequels (great designs though) and I don't know much about brickheads? So there was a campaign or something? And there is a jar-jar leader/cultist or what? I just saw the gunship vote

    Looks dark azure to me - but then again the lightning makes the difference. In promo pictures the blue always looked like the same as the ship to me (standard blue). And in TLG's defense.. colour's are also defined by the licence owner plus Bo's armor looks quite bland - except for the helmet in "reality". the lighter silver on Mando (most here prefere it anyway I think) surely "pops" more on the dark brown while gun metal grey would have looked good on black. Gun metal grey would have worked better for Bo's base suit

    It may not be accurate but I think the Armorer would look great with any of the brown or gold shoulder accessories. Notably there's the piece Wu used last year. I think her show appearance is a bit messy anyway. I'll probably put the helmet on some golden figure.

    that piece would be great.. but on the other hand people would complain about no printing on the one-colour headband. I don't think. On Saxton it looked to me like it's gun metal grey-black dual molded (which I doubt now). But the Armorer has a different shape of visor etc. - so I think it would not work well with dual molding. Overall I think we have just been spoiled by all he beautiful dual molded pieces from Star Wars and ninjago Printing and printing quality on "old style" helmets isn't the same anymore. Then again helmets might become bigger with dual molding and people wont like that.

    oh that was exactly my suggestion before naja looks really good anyway. anyway - so far we have gotten Mando helmets in: standard green, sand green, white, silver - Boba, Mando and Jango dark azur, standard green, light grey, dark orange - Mando battle pack gun metal grey and grey - TCW and gun metal grey also for Mando's first version And now it looks like standard blue (or again dark azur), again gun metal grey, black/red, gold and sand blue will be added

    Wow could you maybe post a picture of the cape "spread out"? I pushed away doing the same with a spar black cape for some time now - shouldn't be too hard but I think you nailed it! set leak: I'm so happy finally that we got such decent images as leaks! At least from the picture I think the Armorer helmet looks a bit like a knockoff. What I really miss are finer printed details on helmets - some Mando helmets look a bit comica. But still Im very happy we get such obscure side characters. And I don't have to use a golden knight helmet anymore. Cool also that Paz really does use that shoulder piece. Might have been designed for him. Interstingly the jetpack looks gun metal grey to me - I wouldn't mind but I'd be sad for some people who don't own any Jango Fett.

    But how many costumers are thinking about the aftermarket? And for sure there will be different versions. Like there are different versions of Boba Fett between the movies or between the releases. For people simply buying sets this is a nice one because figs have something else about them. But I guess it's different factors, different tastes etc. About the cape: Fortunately as there will be many Mandos one could simply cut parts off so that it's similar to Boba's.
