    New themes in 2022?

    Call it an exaggeration if you will - I more or less just count the times there were plans to cancel the tv show timeline. Which has never been executed as we know. But if you watch some of duckbricks videos or other stuff, you'll see there were plans a few times - sometimes more and sometimes less concrete.

    BAM Exclusive Parts Index

    how do you guys and gals get the parts? When I was at a Lego store, they just sold complete figs in boxes. When I asked they said I cannot swap or modify them. But I dont want to buy several boxes of 3 figures if I just look for like 2 parts in each of the boxes.. Oh I didn't read that before making my comment. Unfortunate because BAM was the only good reason to go into a Lego store for me.

    VIDIYO - Universal Music 2021

    the sales are just crazy. I got the robot car thingy for 6 bucks. Didn't even care for the build but the figures were too cool to pass for 3 bucks each.

    New themes in 2022?

    I mostly take longer videos from Tommy Anderson and duckbrucks as a source and I think I remember like SEVERAL times where they kind of wanted to cancel the series in the current form. Like it was unclear what would happen after skybound, then it was unclear again after hands of time and if they would just take the ninjago movie universe and basically cancel the tv show universe, etc. I got the impression that the creators were under constant pressure until like s11-12, when TLG seemed to have realized that they have a constant source of income with ninjago. Even if it does tank at one point - I'd never believe ninjago to be dead, as long as Lego exists, because they could relaunch it at any point even with a break. Anyway - I'd still hope for some kind of spinoff from either ninjago or City - make an adventure theme; in combination with board + card games (=very cheap and simple production) they could also have the flexibility to touch on several "classic themes" from different periods. I think that would be the safest bet. I'm thinking a pimped version of Johnny thunder, related with either ninjago or city universe, so that it's not something completely new and unrelated.

    Updating Your Minifigs

    I was still too lazy/busy to make some kind of flickr. I wish this forum could just take uploads from us! but as soon as I get around to it, I'll upload a bunch of my modified Mando troopers

    LEGO Ninjago 2021

    in the last years we got so many rare/expensive figures in magazines - this year unfortunately not a single one of the rare versions. ...but the december version shows we'll get Ronin, from the ninjago city set. Pretty cool as non of the pieces are available on bricks & pieces!

    but it takes work. Like think of how long and diverse ninjago has served Lego. It was a really weird idea to begin with and they put a lot of effort into it - music, voice casting, lore... ...and TLG wanted to cancel it at least 6 times. If something weird as ninjago worked out like gold, I'm sure there are other formulari. But they needa good team with ressources for developing them.

    LEGO Star Wars 2022 Set Discussion - READ FIRST POST!!!

    Do people really think Lego makes sense for a small group of AFOL's that want to buy every single set and are dissapointed if not every single one is up to their standards? Don't get me wrong, I understand that you dislike sets we get and would like others. But Why you bring moral in so much? They did do sets for CW7, Mando and TBB. Just that they are careful; it's not clear whether those sets would sell well on the market. Think of how bad the Rebels sets sold - and I love Rebels! Visions is something even weirder and more experimental - also a bit brutal and adult, from what I've heard. Why would Lego be the only company doing sets for this? I think SW is a mess for toy companies: all the new movies have been about rehashing old ships so all the big budget went into random alien, FO stormie and Ressistance molds. Would the designs have been half as creative as the prequel designs I'm sure toys would have been more of a success. As for new shows, they never know if it is something kids will like, probably they have very limited access to material as well, which makes planning a mess. Probably this is one OT-style wave and then there's the option of newer sets, maybe even bad batch (if the numbers were good). And no - both affordable scale plus the dioramas are something new. I was able to get a Slave one with better proportions and better figures than the bigger one for less than half the price. And before the Bespin duel, we never got any good "location" sets. Lego "listened" to fans who liked this set and now the make them for the whole market. Now people complain even about that...
  10. if those days are gone though: why does it work with Playmobil but not with Lego? And you could also say the same with any other "classic" theme, once Lord of the rings, GoT or whatever is "out" for some time. Anyway: LR was still a "classic" line up of sets. Could not have been more classic. Could have brought out every set without big changes and noone would have noticed ....I dont have numbers! Maybe I'm wrong. Just the fact that those relaunches were shortlived and Lego didn't continue something similar afterwards. Like with NK they didn't seem to have had enough trust for a purely medevil theme. Other than this my own experience was that many sets of those themes were heavily on sale - comparable to the last HS or NK waves, where you could see them sets like 50-80% off. As I travel due to my work throuout Europe and visist many shops when I can; that's not nothing but of course it's no objective number. What I find sad is, that Lego and the community seem unable to establish communication, where we could get proper answers to this kinds of questions. Maybe I'm wrong and they would say "we want to do something different". As it's a huge pile of money though - I assume if they don't produce it, they don't see money in it.

    LEGO Star Wars 2021 Set Discussion - READ FIRST POST!!!

    honestly: the genius way of how angles are achieved, how much detail they managed to put in - even really good SW sets are no match for this kind of set. I even understand a UCS Landspeeder - the UCS/Creator car sets are quite popular and this is just a sci-fi car. But even if 4 legs, a trunk and a head would work for me - the recent AT-AT set with some mods is really great and its not small anyway. I'm happy if you guys and gals are happy but I never understood why there's even demand for building them legs 2 hours 4 times
  12. Even before the complete take over of licences/blockbusters and cinematic universes, Lego's "classic" themes failed or at least weren't that profitable. Among them being Galaxy squad, pirates and castle. The latter two were pretty conservative and could have used more creativity/detail and personality like we get with Ninjago. "Lone Ranger" portrayed - though being a licence - a pretty classic western scenario and according to the word failed pretty badly. I think Lego is on the right track by using existing themes for new interpretations of classic themes. And if a medevil wave of Ninjago and some Creator sets works have success - then they'd get motivated into doing an independent theme. I think it might be also a factor that Lego is simply too expensive to successfully start a new project. Playmobil also ain't cheap but from them or other brands you get quite a lot for your money anyway. If buy a decent castle from Lego, you gotta grab deep in your pockets. The solution I think would be an inclusion of more bricks per set, especially location based sets. From alternative "Lego" brands you get an awesome huge dinosaur for 50€ while you'd pay 200€ from Lego.

    When do you consider a MOC "complete"?

    Never. I tell my partner always "it is done now" and then months later after some new parts came out I get asked "did you change again/it looks different". There's a bunch of heavily modified/almost MOC'ish sets I want to get rid off (selling, once I find a proper page) so I simply had to put them away or I'd put more effort/time/money into them.

    [Ninjago] Should I get 2x Water Dragons?

    I wasn't the biggest fan of the set due to the build being more "messy" and less colourful, than I would have liked. But it's a very decent build anyway (I got very high standards ; ) and I couldn't do much other then chaning some colours, changine/adding some detail. I'm sure there's ways to make it even much cooler but you'd have to completely redesign the body. The existing structure isn't so easy to change all that much.

    price increase in Europe

    I just think this could play a role in the potential demise of TLG. Not saying it's like that; again maybe vidyo was just part of a "throw away budget". But can also be that they did lose a lot of money and maybe it is an early 2000's situation. I don't know - let's see. But the existance of proper alternatives, now even having decent infrastructure and communication within Europe doesn't make it easier for Lego.
