    LEGO Monkie Kid 2021

    That mountain set is fantastic, good choice to keep the Sci-Fi out of that set so it will appeal more as a standalone set. Other sets certainly are good but as with the other waves, the theme's exclusivity will make me fear the overall pricing.

    LEGO Titanic 2021 Rumour

    I'm not offended about Titanic, but a real world tragic ship/event shouldn't be advertised around a fictional hollywood movie or it's actors. Now, that's not to say that the story cannot be mentioned anywhere, but at least mention the real story/technology from a 1912 perspective, not a Cinematic perspective. Space Shuttle models are fine, but Columbia or Challenger also shouldn't be advertised around STS-51L or STS-107, both had other succesful missions (see Women of Nasa set for example).

    LEGO Titanic 2021 Rumour

    This happened in real life, and people died, this should 100% never be related to the movie and it's actors.

    LEGO Creator 2021 - Rumors, Speculation, and Discussion

    Certainly an interesting set, and the darkblue/yellow color scheme works well with the 2015 Beach Hut and 2017 Island Adventures if people happen to have those sets.

    Mountan Fortress disappointed

    The Castle that always impressed me the most in catalogs was 6090 Royal Knight's Castle , but it's from 1995. I did get smaller sets from that year, like the King , the Skeleton Surprise and the Drawbridge, definately one of my favorite faction of sets I actually had.

    How common are missing pieces?

    Only had it happen once in 5 years, and that was 1 piece missing (2x2 L corner brick) and an extra 1x6 plate was included that wasn't part of the set, so might have been a piece swap incident somewhere.

    Lego City 2021 Rumours, information and discussion

    I like the cars and the building ,but the helicopter is just not needed in that hideout set, never liked those cockpit parts either, but gotta admit the parts use for the rear shape is clever using those long triangle sloped parts. But still might consider it if the interior/figures are good, and on a sale, seems like a great set with 30% off or more.

    LEGO IDEAS - The Medieval Blacksmith

    I like it a lot, the original was a bit too large.

    LEGO Xtra 2021

    Looks like 2 new Xtra sets appeared for 2021. (images from Brickset) A new variant of Food 40465 And Chinatown 40464 Overall I love both of those in terms of pieces, and both are massable. Bananas are the only repeat item, compared to 2018, but even the apples are different color, so that's nice, also very likely to have a spare sausage / melon slice / cherry included. As for the Chinatown set, nice selection of parts, crate is always nice to get, multiples of teapot+cups won't look odd in a porcelain type shop , and lanterns/fences/bamboo would generally fit nicely. Just like Plants got a second version in 2020, this will be the second variant of Food , so far looks like the theme is here to stay longterm for now, the only change looks to be the retirement of the cardboard roads in favor of the new City ones. Maybe we'll see a new variation of Traffic Signs / Lights as the 2018 sets are likely due to be replaced soon like the food and plants already did.

    LEGO Ninjago 2021

    Actually looks much better in review then just pictures, nice size for sure.

    Lego Classic 2021

    I agree there for that polybag. As for Classic theme sets themselves, the huge color variations they have does allow great mini builds, but generally Creator sets, while still having lots of colors, work a bit better for larger cohesive builds. But comparing the 2015 and 2021 larger Classic sets, overall looks like LEGO has toned down the number of different colors a bit to have more parts of the same colors. I still personally think the 2018 Building Bigger Thinking sets were the best so far, but partly because of the generic minifigs+accesoires included. But I do applaud LEGO for at least trying different "themed" Classic sets like wheels, windows, eyes, lightbricks, transparent sets, and the return of the €5 "colored" small sets. (green/blue in 2020 , white in 2021) The more I look at the 2021 11013 Creative Transparent Bricks , the more I start to like it. Also 11014 Bricks and Wheels does seem to use some newer and different colored wheels again, so variation is good.

    Oversimplification

    3-in-1 sets can be built without numbered bags if you start alternate build first, If I only have 1 set, I still build the main build myself however, just as a check of completeness, building is more interesting then counting pieces. As for extra steps in instructions, I like it, as sets have gotten bigger , especially the piece count picture per step helps a lot. I certainly have noticed "weird colors" in sets, especially City, where insides of cars are green and such while the main build is grey/white. Long past are the days where a set only had a handful of colors, could be seen as either a downside or upside however depending on the goal. I will be very sad if LEGO stops paper instructions however, they make a great archive, long-term, especially on more recent sets with a set's parts counts in the manuals, even while it won't cover spare parts and such, it does make LEGO somewhat timeless being independant of an electronic device. There's just something special about rebuilding old LEGO from paper manuals after a long period of time of let's say 20 years.

    Lego City 2021 Rumours, information and discussion

    After seeing official LEGO.com prices, certainly there's some variation between sets and countries again, US and NL City prices being generally worse then Germany's, especially sets above $30 / €30. I like the boat, but not at €55. On the other hand, the €10 and €20 range sets look pretty good value , Police Transporter especially, 4 figs, 2 vehicles and a motorcycle for €20 , for me, this would be a good set to finaly get a duke detain and snake rattler. As for the road system, I'll probably skip the largest sets unless there will be heavy discounts, probably get some of the €20 road packs instead.
  14. Nexo Knights had a few Castle sets, but it was still far from a true Castle theme. But the few sets like Knighton Castle, Jestro's Volcano Lair, and even the Fortrex (with modifications), can serve as Castles, if you look past the color schemes, especially on the Knights side. The Fortrex had potential where it could be expanded with the Library set, but there were never any more smaller buildings since, beside a small Tower and Tree sidebuilds in the stone monster season. The neutral knights and villains can easily fit into Castle themes as well, the smaller vehicles were sized like something you'd see in a Castle theme with different colors. The larger vehicles were something completely different however, and indeed closer to Sci-Fi/Space compared to Castle. Especially the 2018 villains could easily have been a Sci-Fi space faction on it's own, a set like Berserker Bomber could've easily fit into another sci-fi/space theme. Still , I loved the theme, but going forward, I would greatly prefer location/buildings over vehicles if another theme comes around. Currently since 2018 Harry Potter sets have the expandability/modularity of traditional Castle sets, where walls/towers can be re-arranged with technic pins in the walls, now I hope they will continue that system if there eventually migh be another Castle theme or single large Castle set. I personally don't think the Harry Potter sets work great as a Castle theme however, while there are some great Wizard figures, Centaurs and magical things in some sets, overall for me, it doesn't bring me in as a Castle fan unlike sets like Knighton Castle or Jestro's Lair.

    LEGO Ninjago 2021

    I can certainly see it will attract people for the old Islanders vibes, and I think the sets will work great with other Pirates sets as well. Using the Ninjago way to approach one-wave "subthemes" , is a great way imo, and since Legacy also exists, seeing something different in the newer seasons is nice. Having seasons like 12 - 13 - 14 being pretty much standalone subthemes, will also be easier to attract new people into Ninjago.
