    Until the past year, I’d been a die-hard LEGO Marvel Super Heroes collector, but I’ve fallen out of love with the theme this year.
    I now find myself diving full-scale into LEGO Star Wars sets.
    I love both Marvel and Star Wars movies, and own a framed copy of each MCU movie poster. I enjoy sports like tennis, soccer, and swimming. And while I don’t drink, I enjoy mixology and bartending.

  1. After the breakout success of Venom in fall 2018, they must’ve ordered more Venom-centric products. Which would be fine if they were actually appealing after the first one, or at least unique.
  2. An upcoming Character Encyclopedia, releasing in April 2020
  3. Just purchased 75254 at my local LEGO store to get the Obi-Wan polybag! I don’t care if it runs for another month and a half, I’m not chancing promos anymore after last weekend’s disasters.
  4. I usually stick to BrickLink and local deals, but I recently found a page with Black Friday sales that were just too good to pass up. Has anyone had experience with Instagram sellers, and if so, which ones? I’d be excited to hear your stories as I anxiously await my order! Note: the seller I bought from has about 16,000 subscribers, so I’m fairly certain it’s a trusted seller (they’ve been active for 3 years now).
  5. And it’s for sure a retailer exclusive from Marvel? Have we gotten any updates on the Zebra theme yet?
  6. I spoke to a representative who is fairly sure the Falcon should be on sale once a day through Cyber Monday. I’d check back tomorrow around the same time. They also told me they had a slew of complaints about the Falcon in particular today. It sounds like a lot of us were unhappy. They said that since the demand is clear, Amazon will more than likely continue to discount it over the weekend. However, they didn’t have access to the information on the number of stock that was discounted, so I can’t tell anyone the odds for tomorrow.
  7. Do we know if this will appear on the “upcoming deals” list before it drops? The list allows an 11-hour heads up for products before they go on sale, including Prime-Only deals.

    What's your recent LEGO Star Wars Purchase?

    I just bought a couple of big buckets of Lego from Facebook Marketplace. Upon investigating, there are over a hundred minifigures in there, and I can identify the following sets: -2009 Venator Cruiser -2005/2006 Clone Turbo Tank -2008 AT-TE -2007 MTT -2007 Hyperdrive Ring -2002 Bounty Hunter Pursuit -2003 Jabba’s Palace -2003 Jabba’s Message -2006 Jabba’s Sail Barge -2004 MOs Eisley Cantina -2009 AAT -2006 Slave 1 -2002 Ewok Attack -2007 Echo Base -2007 Sith Infiltrator -2009 Assassin Droid Battle Pack -2005 Darth Vader Transformation -2005 General Grievous Wheel Bike -2004 Millennium Falcon -2009 Battle of Hoth -2003 Geonosian Fighter -2007 Naboo Starfighter -an unidentified TIE fighter plus some Harry Potter (including the 2004 Hogwarts Castle), Batman 1, Spongebob, and Indiana Jones sets (including the Temple Escape). This was all $75 for the 2 buckets.
  9. If anyone has been waiting to pick up the UCS Hulkbuster (76105), Walmart has it for $80.
  10. Yep. They even had Darth Vader’s Castle, the Amazon exclusive set. Retailer exclusives can be purchased right from Shop@Home
  11. I like the Hawkeye minifgure. Nothing too special, but the face print is especially nice. But wow, I love the Spider-Noir minifgure. Can’t wait to get that one, and hopefully we’ll get some other surprise variants, like last wave.
  12. First of all: wow does that Iron Man look great! The silver highlights really make it that much better. As far as Deadpool, no, his popularity is obviously not comparable to the Joker. I’m just proposing that given tonal shifts in recent iterations of the character (both on page and on screen) that have climaxes with R-rated Joker, we may see a re-evaluation of what LEGO deems within their range. While I don’t believe we’d ever get a Phoenix-inspired variant of Joker, there will undoubtably be a tainted perception of the character moving forward, likely with this dark and gritty portrayal fresh in the minds of consumers. If that’s the logic LEGO had around the release of the Deadpool movies, it’ll be interesting to see what their products contain in the near future, what their saturation of certain mainstay characters is, and the standard that they will set.
  13. Stranger Things is TV-14. More mature audience, but not a materially restricted one.
  14. I feel like there’s a new argument to be made for Deadpool after the Joker movie. There is no way LEGO will never make another Joker minifigure again, just because he’s been the focus of a rated-R movie. We’ll have to wait and see going forward.
  15. Santa-Pool is begging to be made.
