    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. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. Stranger Things is TV-14. More mature audience, but not a materially restricted one.
  4. 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.
  5. Santa-Pool is begging to be made.
  6. If you look directly by name, rather than sw#, they should all be on there.
  7. I noticed that as well, it seems to be more of a cloudy blue.
  8. My review of Kylo Ren’s Shuttle, I’d anyone is interested. I can’t say enough about this set.
  9. I wholeheartedly agree. I prefer the older LEGO style of blockier, gap-filled builds. Sure, the improvements make for nice models, but in creating more specialized pieces for efficiency and appeal, sets lose that classic LEGO look. And I didn’t grow up during the 70s or 80s. I’ve hardly been alive for the entirety of the Star Wars theme, so I have no attachment to the older, less advanced styles. I just think that they lose a certain LEGO feel.
  10. Instructions for the Luke Skywalker timeline build https://www.instagram.com/p/B3P7cOzJ4nu/?igshid=1b8b54cb98i3b
  11. I went directly to my local LEGO store, they had the physical bag promo there.
  12. I’ve got it at 47cm wide, 36cm tall. I grabbed the new Millennium Falcon, Kylo Ren’s Shuttle, Pasaana Speeder Chase, Anakin’s Podracer - 20th Anniversary Edition, and the Inferno Squad Battle Pack this morning, and got 3 Battle of Endor promos and 2 leftover tote bags.
  13. Amazon has the UCS Tantive IV for 10% off at $179.99
  14. All we know is that the Hulk Helicopter Drop will be released on Black Friday. I don’t know if the rest of the wave is coming that weekend too.
  15. Congrats on your finds! My Target is still stashing them away, but I personally know half the staff and may get lucky. With th the recent Triple Force Friday promos being revealed, what do you think we’ll see discounted? Will it be a plethora of sets like May 4th? Or should we expect sets from that rumored retiring soon list?
