  1. It's so hilarious to me that every time, I end up using all of BrickLink's advanced search features, then copying the IDs back over to B&P. Their search is so inconvenient that I'm using a competitor's shopping service just to learn the parts. Like, thanks, Lego, for having two concurrently running ID numbers for the same part, and only having half the colors being available under each one, and not bothering to link the two pages. Without BrickLink, how could I possibly even realize that?

    It looks like this torso from the rebel battlepack.
  3. There's a handful of exclusive printed pieces from the Disney castle- Donald's torso and legs, exclusive panels, some kind of storybook text, exclusive clock faces, etc. Nothing that really grabbed me, though.

    Looking at the Sanctum build, it's significantly more accurate than I was expecting. (If you have it available,) compare the build to the MCU's Sanctum: It has the first floor, third floor, and roof level, with many, many details copied from the real thing. It has the curved roof to the balcony, the off-white pillars with crowns against a brick-red exterior on Floor 3; on the top, it has the grating along the roof edge, the windows flanking the Seal, off-white trim, and multiple sets of chimneys in groups on the corners of the roof; and the ground floor has the funky and dingy parallel lines represented in gray tiles. Heck, even the breaks between floors are pretty well represented by the studs out construction. Pretty much the only egregiously inaccurate things about the exterior are the size (unavoidable), that floors 2 and 4 are missing (unavoidable for same reason), and that the roof isn't green. The last is the only thing they could've really done better about the facade on their budget, and I'm not sure why they didn't fix it.

    Weird. Why are they using the Mark 43 armor? It's 4+ armors behind. This is the first I've seen of it in Infinity War in any marketing/promos/leaks, etc. The Mark 43 with chest plate removed was used in Age of Ultron inside the Hulkbuster, and there's a new Hulkbuster in IW, so it's plausible, but I'm still skeptical. Uh, they totally have, but the body of that fig is the Mark 43, which is the suit those legs originated with. They've only been reused once outside of that suit, on the Mark 46 in Civil War. TLG used different legs in all Tony's other suits since then (Mks 45, 33, 47, Scuba, Space, & ANAD). Who is this AfroMan who posted the Iron Man originally, and are we confident they're legit?

    Darn, the ring pieces do have a designated spot for holding. That means they won't be useful as a structural or connective piece. But they still are a cool accessory and can be used for decoration, so that's a plus!

    Nice job on those, @Drsam92! I think they're all good, but Beast is my favorite. I don't think I've ever seen that Chima head used for him before, but it's perfect!

    99% chance they're talking about the thing that appears to be a MagLev train that rushes by and separates Panther and the suited-up Killmonger near the end of the second trailer. Apparently even Wakandan mine carts are so advanced they beat Japanese bullet trains, which is pretty cool .

    Hey guys, check the top of the Rhino box: is it just me (or an illusion), or does Okoye have toe claw prints on her legs that you could easily swap onto Black Panther? Also, are Nakia's rings just an accessory with a single grab-point, or are they smooth rings with constant bar-width? Because the latter would be amazing for building.

    Printed Cowls: Every Flash/Reverse Flash cowl Every Iron Man/War Machine helmet Vulture, Detroit Steel 60's Batman, Glam Rock Batman, ElectroSuit Batman Bunny Suit Guy, March Harriet, Easter Batman EVERY SINGLE Legends of Chima character And a ton I forgot Printed Cat Ears: Black Panther Checkmate, Atheists.
  11. Oh man, if that torso is unmarked, it'll be the first generic heroic torso in seven years! The last one goes for $7 on BrickLink by itself)! I love this wave. The '78 Jor-El and Zod are the highlights, but I also like Killing Joke Joker and Black Canary, and I'll grab one or both of the Wonder Twins. And if that torso is the real deal, I will pick up several, but I don't want to get my hopes up yet. Are there pictures of it in the movie or in that concept art book to either give us further hope or to dash it?

    Can we be sure you're not talking about this unrelated Creator set coming next year?

    If you want to see what they'd look like, Lego included Odin and Heimdal in their equivalent poster for The Dark World. No real pieces were used to make either character, so we can't emulate them–even Odin's hair is a recolor that doesn't exist physically. Interestingly, Heimdal's sword is a recolor of one of the Knight's Kingdom swords, which is a cool choice I wouldn't have thought of. Also, the jet on the real poster doesn't quite match the jet from Ultron– for whatever reason, it lacks the prominent red accents from Ultron. However, Lego's AoU jet (76032) didn't have the red accents either. In fact, almost all the toys from Ultron show the Quinjet with this omission, so I assume Marvel gave the toy companies inaccurate concept art. Weirdly, the Quinjet seen in Civil War (the movie) look almost exactly like the design used for the Ultron toys (and consequently, this poster), while the paint job the Civil War toys got are way darker than the on-screen design, and therefore don't match anything. That's all to say, you're right– they should've used the Ultron set, both because it matches the poster (they're both inaccurate in the same way), and because it is the plane Hulk used in-universe. And now for the minor detail I don't love– I don't think Thor's new haircut looks like that piece. I think the Sleepy Hair is better.
  14. Elsewhere on the same website, it also says: Meaning they do consider Nexo Knights to be licensed (even though my sense is that it's really not).

    They've introduced a number of pieces designed for small mechs since then; I bet if they re-issue the suit, they'll redesign it to incorporate some of the new pieces.
