    Marvel Superheroes 2021 - Rumors & Discussion

    Some small news about Tom's brother in the movie makes me want the webbed-up upside-down drug dealer in one of the sets. Not likely to happen, but I foresee that being an MOC in the not too distant future.

    Future Castle Sets?

    Most of the panning of KKII was the "jelly bean" knights in the first two waves, and a few ridiculous small builds. The third wave gave us better designed good guys. It just took too long for the fig design to truly work. The structures in the sets were pretty good, even though they relied on a couple of pieces that could get warped easily. The larger of the two seems to have been permanently retired. Vladek and his army were awesome, and still make it into my builds today (literally). Dracus had one of the best dragon heraldry shields ever, even though he and his minion's legs made it seem like they were only wearing thong underwear. Even the large figure shields and armor are great pieces for MOCs.

    Marvel Superheroes 2021 - Rumors & Discussion

    I expect one of the cast to say it's Spider-Man: Home Alone.
  4. Commodore Hammish Grei strides in with righteous intent, carrying the same reports he had last session, now all crumpled and folded. He heavily plops them down on the Independents' desk, and sits with his arms crossed, glaring about the assembly hall. Viscount Doblin and Lady Cantoni enter with more reserved measure, but their concern over recent events is well etched in their gaze. Viscount Doblin nearly stumbles getting into his seat. Lady Cantoni adjusts her seat slightly, and gives Hammish a one-handed shoulder rub to get him to sit more calmly.

    Latest news about Lego animal moulds

    You'd think it was Year of the Monkey. City: New monkey mold Raya and the Last Dragon: three different monkey-like creature molds Monkie Kid: The Legendary Flower Fruit Mountain has 7 monkey character figs I'm expecting lots of Planet of the Apes MOCs to show up here in the next several months. Now if only Lego would reissue Welcome to Apocalypseburg!
  6. It is entirely possible that the leaked image of blind boxes with Series 19 printed on them could have been an early box test for Vidiyo. Working out how display might have to differ from the other blind purchase products. There are a number of reasons why Lego might have used in-house imagery for this, especially if they needed work with outside interests for this testing.
  7. I think the worry that Vidiyo's blind boxes extending to the CMF line is just borrowing trouble. If Lego were going to make such a drastic change to an established theme's format there would have been some kind of announcement. At minimum retailers would need to be informed because it would affect the display format. If Vidiyo's format were going to be applied to all blind purchase items, such information would have leaked from a retailer long before now.

    Marvel Superheroes 2021 - Rumors & Discussion

    Well before the pandemic there had been rumors of some of the voice actors from the 90s TV series being in talks about reprising their roles. A 30th Anniversary event would make sense for all parties. That doesn't mean anything came of it, but given the current level of contractual quiet Marvel keeps its actors under, the lack of news on that front gives it even odds. This added to other stated reasoning suggests that an X-Mansion set is at best a year away. The discussion being of anniversaries, this year is Deadpool's 30th. Make of that what you will.

    Marvel Superheroes 2021 - Rumors & Discussion

    A non-MCU Marvel D2C could be just about anything. It could be a model of the very first comic appearance of Iron Man for all we know (unlikely). What If . . . will be a cartoon, and because of the nature of the stories, won't be part of the MCU or 616, so the quite low probability of an Uatu build has increased somewhat. Remember that AFOLs that are also fans of Marvel are just a portion of the overall adult Marvel fan market. To truly have an understanding of what to expect of the Marvel D2Cs we need to understand who the target demographic is. A large portion of the general movie going fanbase are unlikely to purchase a $300 Lego set, even less probable now given current economic conditions and major delays in movie releases. The ideal buyer is someone with a willingness to spend on a Marvel product without the additional promotion that comes with the release of a movie, or other commercial property.

    Future Castle Sets?

    Lego redesigned the over-the-fig ghost mold for Monster Fighters, but I didn't necessarily mean that. Ghosts these days use the dual molded tail piece. For nostalgia, I would think a modern design ghost might be one of the old theme's kings. Okay, now I'm picturing Hamlet in my head.

    Am I the only one considering the plausibility of a comic/cartoon Sony characters Spider-Man set? Yes, the movies got repeated delays, but since the sets for those characters don't directly reflect them, we could still see that as well. I'd love to have a winged bat-faced Morbius fig.

    The Spider-Man sets are usually where we get the non-MCU Sony Marvel characters. One of the delay release dates for Morbius had been March 5, so a Spider-Man set featuring him could be in the upcoming offering. There are a few scenes from the Morbius story run in the 90s cartoon that I would enjoy seeing in Lego.

    Someone was able to capture, and even enlarge a bit, the images for these and repost them to IG with the usual hashtag.

    Latest news about Lego animal moulds

    Not a true animal leak, but an image of the upcoming Ninjago "scuba suits" makes the characters look like frogs. The figs look like they are actually built more like the Nexo Knights scurriers.

    Just saw an email from last night from Marvel Entertainment. It is the 30th Anniversary of Deadpool. Fingers crossed for an updated fig.
