    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 big...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 :)

    The Flintstones - LEGO Ideas

    Hello, do you think that we'll get the Bart's slingshot as seen on the fan model ? I mean, there are some pieces released under licences, that we never see after the first release. I thought that slingshot was a piece that we could have seen in several themes (City, Creator, even Friends, etc.) then nothing after the CMF Simpson Series 2. The same for some hair (Alice, Mr. Incredible, Aladdin...) If we finally get it in a set, is it the kind of pieces that we get one more ?
  3. I would also like to see more Castle / Fantasy characters like evil king, evil fairy, evil genie, ice king, but I would say a statue, stone or terracotta statue, an historical character would be great too.

    Future Simpsons Lego- Rumours, discussion and wishlisting

    It is quite surprising to me to see The Simpson coming this years in a new theme (BrickHeadz) after having nothing in 2016 and 2017. Do you know how long lasts a licence possessing ? With that surprise, do you think that we can expect anything else, and for how much longer ? Thank you in advance :)

    Guess the next animal mould round 3

    It's been a while, about 25 years ago, that I'm waiting for theme like "Zoo" or "Farm", but now after reading this up, it could just be a sub-theme for City, it seems very logical, like a part of the town. With all the Zoo subtheme things, it could have a bus and bus-stop, foodtrucks for hot-dogs or ice-creams...a plenty of "City" theme things. About the vehicles, in addition to the bus, Zoo bus stop, it could have a vet truck, a animal transport truck (for terrestrial or marine animals), even an Zoo copter for emergency, a cleaning-vehicle...? Well, there is always something to do for having a nice subtheme. :)

    Future Licensed Sets ?

    Thank you, this is exactly the topic I was talking about when I say "general Licensed topic". Thank you for this topic, I obviously have been searching with the wrong "word key". I would be surprised by a BrickHeadz set because it would be the second green witch in BrickHeadz after the one for the next Halloween. Few years ago, I talked about a serie of Minifigurines for 2019, but I've been convinced in here that LEGO could rather do a few sets like they did for Scooby-Doo. It is possible to delete that topic that I created for nothing ? Or replace it in another maybe ?

    Future Licensed Sets ?

    I've been searching a general topic in this LEGO Licensed part in vain so I decided to create my first one. Maybe it could be used as a topic for future new licensed sets before they have their own topic. Originally, my question was about the future of The Wizard of Oz with LEGO in 2019 ? With the reappearance of the license The Simpsons after 3 years without one Simpsons set and the 1939 movie anniversary next year, is it possible to have something more than 71221 (Dimensions 2015) and 70917 (TLBM 2017) ? We have great molds for the flying monkeys from 70917, we have the Wicked Witch of the West, we have Toto, we have an anniversary next year (1939-2019) but do we still have the license next year ?

    Harry Potter 2018 - Rumors & Discussion

    I've been surprised by brickbuild Fawkes in the Great Hall, do you think it could be a new Fawkes mould in the D2C ? The FB set 1 was the very first set of the line discovered, while we still don't have official images for FB set 2 and Aragog, that new calendar seems logical.

    Wasn't the same with Disney CMF in 2016 ? If I remember well, we've had the list and photos only one month before the release

    About LEGO and the Back to the Future License

    I just finished the Indiana Jones trilogy (video game), few weeks ago it was the 2 triologies Star Wars and now I'm on the Batman game. I still don't have played Harry Potter and Jurassic Park/World but a I would love a new game with the BTTF trilogy plus a 5 sets wave (like Scooby Doo).

    Harry Potter 2018 - Rumors & Discussion

    Thank you, I should have thought about this specific reason (before / after Christmas) but I didn't know that was variable. Since 2013 (for the far I know) in France, it used to be Jan/May/Sept which was exactly 4 months between each series. About the WW CMF, I know there is a lot of eventual Minifigures, a large choice, people are speculating about their own favorite characters, and when I see those complaints about the Minifigs in the sets, I can guess some people will still be disappointed. But I was wondering, don't you think that there are 22 Minifigs this time, it is because there are gonna have maybe 2 or 3 versions of Harry Potter ?

    Harry Potter 2018 - Rumors & Discussion

    Does anyone has an idea about the reason the CMF calendar changed ? April for Series 18, now August for Wizarding world. We had January/May/September and now December/april/August, that's it ?
