    Hi everybody, I'm John, 31 years old (2015), I live in Lille, north of France.

    I had my first Lego at 5 years old, I tried some themes and get stuck on Castle Theme when I was 9, Majisto was the first with his little shop (obviously named Merlin when I was 9) and a minifigs box with 3 Dragon Knights and one Wolfpack Renegade guy. The wolf guy and Majisto was good guys.
    Then at 11, I had in about 2 years the entire collection of the Lion Royal Knights, so my medieval story began :-)

    About 4 years ago, I finaly had the Dragon Knight Castle I so wanted when I was 11 so finally there was the good Lion guys on the hand, and the bad Dragon guys on the other hand.
    So, I completed my originals sets with other different themes sets or minifigs you can create in Lego Store (queen, prince, princess, maids, witch, castle intendant...), and minifigs from the series (mermaids, centaur, ogre, witch, female bohemian, forest female, leprechaun, genie, scarecrow, fairy etc.. etc.. now I have a good collection CMF).

    Later I realize Merlin couldn't live at Lion castle, with his family&friends, too many people in the Royal castle, it's not so I customed him a real lair combining 4729 Dumbledore's Office and 4867 Hogwarts. With that, all the magic family has a real place.

    Ditto with the bad guys, so many characters and stories now, there wasn't so place in the two big Dragon Knights sets, so I turned 6097 Night Lord's Castle into the Dark Castle with sorcerers, vampires, demons, witches, subordinates etc...

    Now I'm 31 and still add some characters and sets in this medieval story, changed since 3 years ago as a "Medieval Fantasy Story" with spatiotemporal flaws [allows me the include Castle + pirates (collection when I was 9 + new) + City (cmf, costumed guys, TBBT, Space..) + LOTR/The Hobbit + Harry Potter + Pirates of the Caribbean + Elves + Star Wars + Super Heroes + BTTF + Scooby Doo + Santa Claus + Indiana Jones + Ninjago + Simpsons + Ghostbusters + Egypt + Female Scientists + Disney Princess + Friends + The Lone Ranger + The LEGO Movie + Scorpion Creator or just Creator + dinosaurs + ... ]

    So I kept the storyline I had when I was kid [I was also playing with the other themes I had (pirates, town, aqua-thing...), Merlin has had some issues with magic and brought some people of other worlds and other time.]
    Now, the spatiotemporal flaws have different origins, and the story is much more sophisticated. Finally all is about family, friendship, maybe love but included in family, friendship, relationships, noble-mindedness...

    Soon, I'm gonna take in shop the Doctor Who set to add him in the Medieval Fantasy Story, more for the set, less for the characters except that wonderful angel :) That's all folks :)

    LEGO Ideas - Central Perk Coffee of Friends

    The hair color for Rachel is great but the back is too short for the character, I think Marceline's hair (71285) recolored would have been better about the back.

    Which is the best CMF Series? Which is the WORST?

    It starts well ! To me, series 6 is one of the best series ever.

    Ideas for CMFs

    I was going to say the same thing, this is really nice to have that kind of collection on long term. I'm totally fan of the chess and the pigs. Do we're going to have the Big Bad Wolf or the last little pig the next time ? This series is again a great series, just wow. I'd take 15 on 16 but it's not a surprise to me anymore, I get used to be a big fan of your work. Clever reuse of Spy hairpiece. The accessories are as great as the minifigs. Thank you and Bravo !
  4. Same here and I couldn't be more agree with @Itaria No Shintaku too. That City thing in the CMF begins to be too easy. I am more excited by @Robert8 new series ! About that bear, I didn't read everything but it looks like a LEGO version of a Care Bear, the color, the rainbow and heart on the chest + in pieces, everything is here to be a Care Bear. (Plus I've just seen on Wiki a 2019 relaunch of the show, maybe it's all about that?) The Pizza guy is also easy, a pie would have been great, with the poop piece as cream. It's nice to see that LEGO continues the couple, this time we have the female mummy that responde to the series 3 male mummy. But it's not nice to see a new game player, we are waiting for the Player 2, not a green haired new one. This series is better on accessories than for the minifigs. With my medieval fantasy theme, I should take 4 minifigs, but it's gonna be more with all the animals or accessories. That flamingo lady, a pair of fairy wings and she will be the 17th fairies (4 fairies in TLM2 CMF)
  5. I don't think the language is the real point, it's just the 3 same languages written on every box. One number, one language, three numbers, three languages, it's just that simple than that.
  6. I think you're right about that new piece. I was thinking too about the cream piece but it's too round compared to the poop.

    Harry Potter 2020 - Rumors & discussion

    That reason could be they want 75949 for another set, maybe the graveyard ? But why not to keep 75949 for the Knight Bus and give 75957 for that maybe-new set ? Giving 75957 for the Knight Bus lets think that we could expect a non-unveiled set, the actual 75949.

    Right, I didn't notice thank you. 75949 is still missing, that's a good news :)

    What could be the 7 sets between 75948 Hogwarts Clock Tower and 75957 Knight Bus ? Are we expecting another Wizarding World wave latter this year ?

    LEGO Disney Minifigures & D2Cs - Rumors and Discussion

    Just ordered a box, I can't wait ! I won't choose between one or another, I love both series for different reasons. Don't you think that Scrooge's hat is a little bit too small for his head ?

    LEGO Disney Minifigures & D2Cs - Rumors and Discussion

    At first look, I was positively surprised by the series but disappointed because of my own expectations (Goofy, Beauty & Beast, etc.) Now I'm just enchanted by this series. I still can't tell (and vote) which one I prefer. I have a question about Dewey's accessory : it is the first time we see this slingshot since 2015 when it once appears in The Simpson Series 2, why ? I'm very happy to see it at last, but I'm often wondering why we don't see this piece in City or Creator sets ?

    Harry Potter 2020 - Rumors & discussion

    Exactly this part, thank you ! I'm telling this because me too, I would love a new crow mould, but I read that the budget mould was mainly for Buckbeak, maybe Fang, so we cannot expext a new crow mould.

    Harry Potter 2020 - Rumors & discussion

    Even without new crow mould, LEGO could still put some old crows by using the little piece (the one used to put a crown) to make them stand up, maybe it could do the job ?

    LEGO Disney Minifigures & D2Cs - Rumors and Discussion

    When I say "replaced", it's because of a lot of thing : with series 1, we had 18 minifigs, 8 couples + 2 alone. Two "plus", we was all enchanted about two minifigs more. We had "couple", without being "couple". For example, we had "Aladdin + Genie", Aladdin but no Jasmine, we had "Buzz + Alien", Buzz but no Woody, we had Stitch without Lilo, etc. With all of this, some of us thought "if series 2 comes, some of couples will be gathered", Jasmine, Woody, Lilo, maybe Aurora, Wendy, Eric... With the Toy Story sets and Woody, it changes that kind of thinking, so I used the term "replace" .
