    LEGO Ninjago 2021

    For a €140 set the bounty does look small imo. It looks good, but not full-price good.

    LEGO Creator 2021 - Rumors, Speculation, and Discussion

    So far those polybags seem to be linked to the LEGO explorer magazine, I really wish LEGO would sell them directly via their Polybag section on the shop, I think the magazine is available in Germany and maybe UK, but that still means limited distribution. Even within the same theme, last year the City magazine had only 6 issues in NL while some other EU countries had 12, so it's heavily depends on publishers as well, and UK has another different distribution with 2 foil packs per magazine.

    Couldn't have said it better here about Disney and HP , I see it the same way.

    I don't think a comparison of a traditional LEGO Castle to a set like Disney Castle or Harry Potter is accurate , they look like Castles but that's about it. If you meant multiple Harry Potter minifig sets as a $300 castle, then sure, I can understand it (if you add your own figures etc) , but the microscale hogwarts isn't even remotely close to a Classic Castle set. Harry Potter does have Dragons, but still isn't really about knights. Many people here don't even consider the 2 big Nexo Knight Castle sets as Castles (Jestro's / Knighton) , and to me they come a lot closer to a Classic Castle playset compared to Harry Potter, even while the colors might not be very historic, but especially the Jestro's Lava Lair works very well in a Fantasy setting. That said, IDEAS got Lowenstein , and potentially will get Castle in the Forest via Crowdfunding starting next month , so if LEGO decides not to make their own designs, I can see more IDEAS Castles end up there.
  5. I agree they currently do match tiles, and that makes sense, and for roads they look fine. I still think they probably look great as underlayer, like open dirt or grass patches, but then adding some angled/rounded plates on top for texture/shapes, and unlike a 8x16 regular tile, some small plates can be easily added in the middle on top so there's definately a technical benefit (and potentially more colors available when time passes) I just think using them without a top layer might look a bit strange in a "natural" environment, especially multiple 16x16 with just tiles, depending on lighting also. Then again, it won't really affect me as I don't have huge terrain layouts but I can see where the shinyness could be a concern in large numbers of road plates in an area if people opt to use a lot of them.

    Unpopular Opinions about LEGO

    Monkie Kid is the closest to fantasy Space right now, and has some crazy colors going on, 80020: White Dragon Horse and 80022: Spider Queen's Arachnoid Base are certainly very Sci-Fi / Space to me, but the exclusivity (full price) turns me away compared to other themes.
  7. I agree the road plates are too shiny for old paths , I wonder why they didn't opt for a matte texture as seen in 8x16 tiles or 8x6 ramps etc, old baseplate roads were never so shiny either. Blue or Dark Tan works fine as normal or muddy water , might look too shiny for large amounts of dirt/grass however.

    Lego City 2021 Rumours, information and discussion

    While all sets have Acacia in the box art , I think the wider Trees (especially the ones in the Wildlife Camp set) are supposed to represent Baobab, which are very rounded and straight, and some very wide short ones exist as well. The 4+ set trees are probably acacia but it's a 4+ set so they use simple parts.

    I think it also highly depends how big the Crowdfunding will be for the Castle in the Forest AFOL designer project. (which would be the second castle after Lowenstein). I could see more Castles still have a chance there.
  10. There are 2 wall panel with window in white in the 60308: Seaside Police and Fire Mission, or alternatively 2 in 43184: Raya and Sisu Dragon

    Also the alternate builds on the 3-in-1 shuttle are undeniably on purpose based on the Apollo Lander and Saturn V rockets, just at a smaller scale, even to the point of the color scheme using yellow pieces for the lander, instead of being a leftover build.
  12. It certainly could be an interesting build, but that horse stable set doesn't come in cheap at €65. Of course the idea/instructions can always be used as inspiration however.

    Sets can always still get a second chance via the AFOL Designer Program , part of which depends on Crowdfunding (while IDEAS voting is 100% free, and sets can reach 10k in mere days sometimes) Right now it's in it's second year, and might well be a big reason why LEGO had so much interest in Bricklink in the first place.
  14. The introduction of the 16x16 regular plate in 2011 also helped that fact, it certainly benefit a lot of sets, alongside 8x8 and 8x16. Most Friends sets that involve buildings are based around at least 1 16x16.

    Future Castle Sets?

    I think the addition of the armor and helmet really helps bring a similar style to this part of the alternate build vs the 6041 set, it's not 100% but it's close enough in terms of weapon/armor available (there's also a sword on a clip on the left side of the armor) I really do hope that Creator 3in1 at some point does include horses however if they make more Castle-theme sets. Or Battle Packs for Castle knights.
