    LEGO Monkie Kid 2020

    Well now the sets are listed at shop@home in the U.S. https://www.lego.com/en-us/themes/monkie-kid The release date is listed as September, not August. Also, the speedboat is indeed $60. Yay.

    Yeah, I saw that too. I have no idea where those prices are from. Even the sources he links in his video don't have any prices. He could just know through his connections, but then it's also weird that no one else is saying that either. Beyond that, I like these sets. I thought the cloud dragster would be a boring build, but it looks great! I'm not going to get it l, but I'm impressed. Sandy's speedboat looks nice to me, I like the more unique build, and the spider queen minifigure is really good. I'm slightly peeved they didn't include pigsy's pitchfork though. The flaming foundry is kind of disappointing. I don't like how the mini demon bull king looks, the head especially, and the base feels kind of empty. The only one of these I'm considering is the speedboat, but much less so of that $60 price is right.

    I think this is like how the Lego Movie 2 had 2 summer waves, (one in april and another in august) so my guess would be soon, maybe when the other episodes of the show start airing, since the first wave was just the pilot episode. I also noticed, looking back, that the Malaysian shop@home page doesn't have any prices on it (I guess they can't ship to Malaysia?) So maybe the lack of pictures is a mistake? It could also be that July is the release date for Asia and that they'll be released later here, that would make some sense.

    Exactly, and it would also be strange to not even know these exist, let alone see them, by now, since it seems that even September releases have official pictures up. For some more context, the posts are from detective_azani, and the pictures are the same ones we've been seeing of the shop at home description, but then the caption says "Coming to LEGO brand stores and Shop@Home in July of 2020!"

    LEGO Monkie Kid 2020

    So... I found a post on Instagram that says these are for this month? And it's not just some random account, it's from an actual leaker, but I'm not too sure about it. Then again, we've already had this happen before (remember the price discussion?) so I don't want to immediately dismiss this, but it just doesn't seem right? It could also just be an assumption on his part, but I don't know...

    Yeah, I just found that too, but to me it looks like a GWP, it's really just a handful of pieces, maybe another poly bag even. I'm really looking forward to Sandy's speedboat, since I was thinking of getting the iron bull tank just for him, but this sounds much more interesting. I also want to see the foundry, I've always had a soft spot for the massive base vehicles, but couldn't afford the $170 HQ. I'm also glad that we're getting more, especially with better villian variety, only 2 bull clones in the whole wave! I wonder when these release... not too far in the future, because else they wouldn't be posted, but September sets are already up with images, so maybe October? Or with that extra minecraft set in December?

    Ouch, if that's the case, then I guess I won't be buying as many as I thought I would... They aren't too terrible for value, they've got the parts for sure, and their size works out ok, it's just that there are so many more large sets than cheap ones that it gets hard to get more than a couple of sets. Seriously, we need more small sets in general, I think they can have a ton of value for their size. But, here we are, 3 sets that cost more that $100 dollars in one wave.

    But the past hulkbuster models already use that smaller piece? Because this is the only piece like that windscreen but smaller, https://brickset.com/parts/6244781 But that's the piece that the other hulkbuster heads were, so there would be no difference, in that respect. I'm confused...

    Super Mario 2020 - Rumors & Discussion

    Yeah, I have no idea where he got that from. I haven't heard anything. If it's true, I'd love it, but I don't want to be let down by this theme yet another time...

    Future Action and Adventure Themes

    Yeah, but his point is that not everything was shown at toy fair. Mario wasn't there either, there's been loads of surprises this year. Then again, part of me thinks he might be referring to the adventures Easter eggs in the haunted house drop tower? I'm just not sure...

    I think we can definitively answer this now look at the blue print image here: you can see that the helicarrier has wheels on the bottom, the tires are visible underneath the model. I think the pieces are meant to be put on the bottom to keep the model from rolling around, in order to display it easier. It's a nice inclusion, I don't think we usually see things like this very often. Another thing I notice, you can see in the top half of the image that an axle runs right through the middle portion of the ship, that's why the space there is unusable. It's a shame that so much of the space inside this thing is just empty for the sake of fitting a few gears and axles inside. Maybe you could change the mechanism to open up more space?

    LEGO Hidden Side 2020

    They are already on Instagram, check Falconfan's page. Whoever noticed the castle was mostly grey was right, and I'm really liking that figure with the funky leg piece, it's cool. I'm interested in who these new villains are, too. I also like how it can close/open up, the model's more dynamic that way.

    Yeah, they don't look very much alike... If you look here at the various comic designs over the years, I think you can see a little more of what they were going for https://marvel.fandom.com/wiki/S.H.I.E.L.D._Helicarrier

    Marvel Superheroes 2020 - Rumors & Discussion

    I've given myself some time to really get what I feel about this set, but I'm still not sure about it... My biggest problem is how rectangular the body is. If they just had some inverted slopes on the bottom, or some curved panels on the sides, I would like the overall shape better. MODOK's face is too recessed into the build, the rectangular shape of the rest of the body compared to the cylinder head doesn't work and it's weird how the windscreen colors are inconsistent between the helicarrier and the small jet. However, I think some of the stranger design choices can be explained. The open space at the back looks to be prison cell for MODOK, it's big enough, and the technic beams are meant to be bars. The rotors are so high up because they can be pitched forwards and back, the front left rotor in the video is leaning slightly forwards. With all of the gears in the model as well, I hope there's some mechanism to move and rotate the rotors in unison, that would be impressive. I feel like I need some more pictures to really know what I think. What is the interior like? What can the model do? What's with all the yellow plates? I'm just not sure if I want this set yet.

    Thanks for putting the links to these! I really find it a hassle to get good looks at things like this on Instagram, so having these in the original quality is much better. If only I could find these for every theme... About these sets, any interest I had in them is down the tubes. The penguin one is OK, but there's no way I'm getting that batbuggy 2.0. Maybe next year...
