    Winter Village Sets - Rumours and Discussion

    The next Winter Village set was the train, so I wonder if it was related to the specialised train pieces. It could be that they weren't due another production run for the tracks or wheels and couldn't fit one in before launch. I imagine they produce a large number of those parts only once or twice a year since they're used in so few sets. The only set that isn't a train that includes those wheels is the Batmobile.

    Winter Village Sets - Rumours and Discussion

    Wasn't the Toy Shop re-release only because there were some internal issues and the alternative was no set at all? From what I remember, it wasn't an active decision to re-release the set from the beginning, only once they determined there wasn't an alternative. Edit: I've found a source for the info: http://thebrickblogger.com/2015/09/brick-breakdown-lego-winter-toy-shop/

    Marvel Superheroes 2020 - Rumors & Discussion

    When they've used stand-ins before, they were just unprinted minifigures and there was a blocked out minifigure in their location on the box. There is no space for the skeleton on the box, so it is likely just a skeleton that Venomsaurus ate.

    Marvel Superheroes 2020 - Rumors & Discussion

    Does that mean we won't be getting any info on what the Zebra sets are at the toy fair?
  5. You'd think so, but look at the rising price of X-Wings over the last few years.

    Marvel Superheroes 2020 - Rumors & Discussion

    The first show doesn't release for more than 6 months. We likely won't be seeing any related sets until after the next wave of sets.
  7. I think most people would accept Rex's AT-TE as an AT-TE. The extra parts for the upper deck don't account for such a significant change in price. The general increase in Star Wars sets, however, does. Nobody expected to see an X-Wing that costs £90, but we have one on the shelves right now.
  8. Brickheadz don't need new moulds. A minifigure would. Since no toy company was producing Baby Yoda products before the show aired (since it was kept a surprise), it will take a long time to produce a minifigure mould for him. A Brickheadz is pretty easy to design and develop by comparison.
  9. I don't think there was ever a real rumour about it, people just started talking about it or making assumptions whenever we heard there was any battlepack in the next wave.

    Apparently a lot of people have received an additional bag of LBG 1x1 bricks. I assume there was a production error on a batch of 1x1 bricks that was caught and corrected, but some were still missed.
  11. The inconsistency in Europe still doesn't make sense. Why would one $30 set in the US cost £25 in the UK or 25 Euros, but another $30 set costs £40? Taxes don't account for that.

    Likely not any time soon. They've now got the winner, but won't have modified the build to be suitable (if necessary) or designed instructions/packaging etc. I wouldn't be surprised if it was the GWP for next year's modular. To give some context, the Lego Moments in Space contest was run in January/February of 2018, but the Space Rocket Ride GWP was not available until June 2019.
  13. To back this up, apparently it claims It's not impossible, but I would say it's unlikely based on what was seen on-screen.
  14. It's an oddly "normal" name, like when Game of Thrones introduced a character called "Harry Strickland". It's so ordinary that it takes me out of the world for a moment. It was a cool looking ship, though, so I'd like to see a set based on it at some point in the future.

    We don't know what techniques are used in the new set, and the Creator shops are always very shallow. The Book Shop may not be double the height, but it will be double the depth.

    It's also not the first time it was used like this. The fur collar was also used as a bird's nest in the Fantastic Beats suitcase set.

    Modular Building Sets - Rumours and Discussion

    In fact, they frequently have both a UCS set and a system scale set available at the same time. The Y-Wing and TIE Fighter spring to mind. In Marvel they had the large Hulkbuster and minifig scale Hulkbuster at the same time. For the new UCS Batmobile, the GWP was literally a smaller version of the same set, while a very similar Batmobile is on sale in system scale.

    I assume he means as in "stop wasting our time."

    DC Superheroes 2019 - Rumours, Speculation & Discussion

    I wonder if that was part of the reason they chose to have it on a raised base.

    Modular Building Sets - Rumours and Discussion

    I would say that, for the purposes of discussion here, a modular is one of the sets that Lego included in the lineup of modulars when announcing Assembly Square. That did include Market Square. https://ramblingbrick.com/2016/10/18/10255-10-years-of-modular-building/

    DC Superheroes 2019 - Rumours, Speculation & Discussion

    Officially, no. But a lot of the GWPs do make a reappearance if they don't sell out. For example, the Avengers Tower recently reemerged. I assume Lego is leaving all its big announcements for after the Black Friday sales. I'd expect to see the new Modular announced next week and the CMFs shortly after.

    DC Superheroes 2019 - Rumours, Speculation & Discussion

    It makes sense. it's a 366 piece GWP so it's logical for Lego to value it around $30.
  24. These sets are definitely aimed at a younger audience (even the non-4+ Spider-Jet). I'm not interested in any of them for the builds, but I guess I'll pick up a couple of the Spider-Man sets to get Noir, Spider-Gwen and Mysterio, since I haven't got round to getting those 2 yet.

    Modular Building Sets - Rumours and Discussion

    There's a difference between showing a building that is used as a hotel and casino, and showing minifigures huddled around a poker or roulette table.
