    LEGO Hidden Side 2020

    Some sets are already listed as Sold out on the European LEGO.com, including the Castle. The Train set is also listed as Sold out on the US site. Sold out certainly is a big sign of retirement, compared to Temporarily out of stock. Especially combined with the European site also listing multiple sets as Retiring Soon, and some of those are -15% or Sold out already. Now, this doesn't mean that sets are instantly gone at January 1st 2021, but I expect more discounts to sell the remaining stock around Black Friday/Christmas and beyond. Some LEGO Movie 2 sets were still sold up to April 2020, but over time, less different sets were available on LEGO.com. (not including other retailers)

    Is LEGO using the 18+ rating wrong?

    To me, another big factor, is how widely a set is sold on the market. It can be a big difference if a set/theme like Monkie Kid is LEGO exclusive, vs a theme like Creator 3-in-1 or Ninjago getting 30-40% discounts elsewhere (especially during 2019 that was common to see). Yes, LEGO did have 30-50% off on their own website sometimes, but usually that's for common sets that would be cheap elsewhere as well. As far as 18+ goes, it doesn't bother me.

    Lego City 2021 Rumours, information and discussion

    It certainly is an interesting concept, and using old designs is likely part of the experimental phase, but those small scale Police and Fire buildings are pretty good.

    Future Castle Sets?

    I actually hope it gets a little bit more of a Guarded Inn approach. I expect the piece count likely gets cut down a bit in terms of little wall/roof texture pieces, and maybe less printed wood tiles indoors, and less small pieces outside. The Tree House final result wasn't as cluttered on the base compared to the original, I expect a similar base/terrain build. I wouldn't mind a bit smaller simpler build if it means they can add at least 1-2 more horses, and keep the other animals around. The tree likely will be smaller or simpler as well. Would even be more of a surprise if they can make it a 2-in-1 build like Barracuda Bay, or add some seasonal pieces like they did for the Tree House.

    Lego City 2021 Rumours, information and discussion

    I agree, sets of different themes are being directly compared and dismissed, especially see it when it's comparing a Creator Expert Modular versus a City/3-in-1/Friends building, but also with Winter Village sets. I don't think it's right to compare sets of such different scale/prices directly. And while it's true that even within the same theme, like 3-in-1 had both Hinged and Open back buildings, still can't compare them 1:1 with Creator Expert Modulars imo. I agree that City might not offer the most size/volume for the cost of the buildings, even in a large set like the 2020 Main Square, it's fair to be critical of that, but even then I feel comparing a set that costs less like again, a Creator Expert Modular, is unfair when it comes to pure buildings. Also see it happen on Brickset random set of the day, which displays older sets, when a Town set appears it's usually a mixed reaction of awesome, nostalgia, or calling the set too simple/small/juniors when it's just a typical 80s/early 90s set.

    Future Castle Sets?

    Wouldn't surprise me if the attraction is something like a 3d cinema , which then could be further expanded to a Augmented reality LEGO set theme, as in the replacement of Hidden Side. Maybe even something like LEGO's version of Pokemon Go / Minecraft Earth to go beyond just scanning LEGO sets.

    Lego themes that we would like to happen

    I Never said that Starcraft is "too old" of a game/franchise to have LEGO sets, but when a company announced their main Starcraft game gets no new content updates (posted 15 October 2020), that means they are looking toward either a sequel or a new game entirely, they even say so in the article : https://news.blizzard.com/en-us/starcraft2/23544726/starcraft-ii-update-october-15-2020 Just bad timing to release LEGO Sets on a game on "life support" (still balance updates etc) when other Blizzard games have new expansions coming out and much more "hype" around it. Is Starcraft 2 a dead game? no, it's just not in the spotlight right now. I still believe the planned 2020 Overwatch sets weren't 100% canceled, but moved towards Overwatch 2 release instead based on the original set names having Overwatch 2 elements in it. Blizzcon is usually the place they announce new games/hype but this year it's canceled, moved to early 2021 (Online February 19-20) Overwatch sets were showcased at Blizzcon 2019 as well, with 1 Blizzcon store exclusive LEGO set. As for the NES, yes it's old but also brought back into attention with games like Mario Maker having the 1985 level style, and Mario celebrating their 35 anniversary, perfect timing with the LEGO Super Mario theme. NES games also can be played on Switch.

    What does NES have to do with this? Blizzard didn't even exist in the 80s, they had some games on the SNES in the 90s, but it was not their main platform.

    While I agree Starcraft is a cool universe for sure, unless there will be a Starcraft 3, I highly doubt there would be SC LEGO sets before Warcraft , SC2 just announced that there won't be any content in the future so basicly means the focus is off that game right now. Not trying to shut down your wish here, SC2 is a great game, considering the age of it, and personally still think it's a better universe for LEGO sets compared to Diablo. Of course a 1-off display set would be cool, like a Terran Battlecruiser or something, Overwatch had the larger Bastion display model as well. Personally I like the Warcraft universe a lot more, and it seems a bit more relevant considering Hearthstone, World of Warcraft + Classic still get content updates/expansions. Warcraft could tick boxes with Fantasy LEGO fans, while it's not exact Lord of the Rings or Warhammer, it does contain elements of each + more things like C'thulu/Old Gods, Pirates, Steampunk, and some Planets/Spaceships as well.

    Jungle was done in 2017, Mining was done in 2018

    Lego City 2021 Rumours, information and discussion

    I don't think so, Ice Cream truck is the current food van that followed up the Pizza Van after 3 years, and the Ice Cream truck is still there in 2021. There will be a Pizza building in one of the Town sets however.

    Future Castle Sets?

    The C looks quite a bit like the current Creator C font as well, but thinner.
  13. Jangbricks did a comparison in his review, it does make the Creator set look quite small, but I don't think it's a bad set at all, especially at some discount. Still planning to get the Barracuda Bay myself, but I love the Pirate Ship set for sure.

    LEGO Ninjago 2020

    Austronesian culture covers thousands of years of human history, they were the first to sail the oceans at that scale and distance , it covers an enormous area, from Hawaii to New Zealand, and from Easter Island to Madagascar. Certainly isn't based on Disney, Moana is based on Polynesia of course, but history goes so much further then that. LEGO had Islanders in the 90s as well. I don't think it's that weird to have a spin-off fantasy version via Ninjago.

    Question about vintage photo

    I looked at the Brickset catalogues, none have this particular diorama, but found some details: Certainly is from the year 1979 or 1980, based on the Snackbar set that came out in 1979, and the yellow Fire Station (374) was replaced with a red one in 1981 (6382). Must be from Europe as well, as US had a different red Fire Station (580)
