    Lego City 2019 - Rumours, Speculation and Discussion

    It doesn't have to make sense to you. It's my money. The point is that I have bought most of the sets that interest me from this year and the lack of new sets or information has shifted my focus elsewhere. As opposed to peak times when new sets are coming out so I would buy sets that initially didnt interest me for the sake of expanding my city/collection. Since this time of year we usually have much more new set information the excitement increases and Im more prone to spend money. But the lack of leaks kind of tanks my interest.

    Lego City 2019 - Rumours, Speculation and Discussion

    That’s good Anyone who has spent time reading thru the forum should know by now that you dislike leaks. I don't think its necessary to restate everytime the topic is brought up. I would suspect you might be in the minority of members who do not like leaks. Perhaps you can create a new thread with a poll or something. I for one enjoy leaked information and the lack of leaks has diminished my interest to the point that I'm spending money that would otherwise have gone to Lego on other interests as there isn't much to get excited about right now. There are pros and cons to leaks but I believe the pros outweigh the cons.

    Modular Building Sets - Rumours and Discussion

    They would remain just as collectible and at the same time reduce the ridiculous aftermarket price from resellers. To me that sounds like a win for fans and Lego, who would take back a good amount of aftermarket sales.

    40178: V.I.P. theme

    I got the set last week at the Nashville Lego store for spending $40. Not a big fan of the stickered Lego sets but its nice to have some different sets for my Lego store. I love this idea. I might have to try it with my Grand Emporium.

    I am missing Market Street, Cafe Corner and Green Grocer. I would love to have rereleases because i wont pay the extortion aftermarket prices for those sets.

    The LEGO Batman Movie Set/CMF Rumors & Discussion

    This and a lot more zaney Batsuit variations.

    The LEGO Batman Movie Set/CMF Rumors & Discussion

    I like it. It fits the Lego Batman Movie theme well but not so much the broader DC theme. If nothing else it would be an excellent parts pack for creating your own Bat themed vehicles.

    My Case Against Artificial Rarity

    But you could bricklink Velma for a decent price at some point if you wanted to where as you cannot bricklink con exclusives without spending a ridiculous amount of money.

    My Case Against Artificial Rarity

    Its not about missing out. Its about it not being produced in sufficient quantities to give people an option to buy it. I missed out on a lot of cool sets in my dark ages. That kind of sucks but maybe I can find them reasonable at a garage sale, 2nd hand store, or online. I waited too long to buy the first Antman set and I missed out. I regretted not buying it when I had the chance. I made the decision not to buy it when I was holding it in my hands because I thought the shelf life would have been longer. It wasn't butthurt. I missed out and it was my fault. But when Lego makes something so incredibly rare intentionally and it is something very desirable to a large part of the Lego community then it is reasonable to be upset over a bad decision like that. A lot of Comic Con exclusive figures do not have a similar official figure available to buy at retail. Your assumption that people are "butthurt" shows that you don't really understand the point of the conversation.

    [MOC] IKEA Furniture Store

    Beautifully executed! Easily recognizable and I have never been to an IKEA store or own anything from one. @CopperTablet that is a great idea. I would love to see that as well.

    My Case Against Artificial Rarity

    I have to say I do agree with you. At one point I was 1000% a Lego purist. Everything that was not genuine Lego found its way to the trash or a garage sale. I am a collector as well and I can spend a reasonable amount of money to complete my collection. The artificial rareity you described drives me crazy as well. Because of that, if I find a reasonably priced, acceptable quality knockoff I am willing to buy it. I would prefer to buy Lego brand exclusively but when they make decisions as a company to create ridiculously, stupid, unnecessary rare, expensive items I will gladly buy a knockoff.

    The LEGO Batman Movie Set/CMF Rumors & Discussion

    Does anyone know anything about the LBM Bat Shooter ploybag 40301. I never saw it in the US and it is the only set from the theme that I am missing.
