    LEGO Ninjago 2021

    This whole wave is giving me a full dose of Atlantis/agents vibes! I love the hydro bot, although I find the aircraft hull piece a bit large and out of place given the size of the bot. The cole car is easily the weakest set to me, honestly looks like a junior set to me. The water dragon set is meh, but the temple set is the most playset-y playset ever and I love it! The bounty looks totally different than what I was expecting, but still great. I also love how they went with a totally different colour to keep things fresh on top of the underwater setting. It initially reminded me of 60266 the first time I saw it. I love the ninja suits, and the underwater guns remind me of agents, with the circular (staffs?) reminding me of Atlantis. A great nostalgic and also well designed wave.

    LEGO Ninjago 2021

    I’m also a bit confused, I remember there being a post with information on both the piece counts and the prices of the summer sets, but I can’t find it now. I think you’re right about the $70, and I believe the Bounty was $130?

    LEGO Ninjago 2021

    Given that the water dragon is supposed to have 737 pieces, that implies an absolutely amazing PPP of 0.068! Hopefully the rest of the wave follows suit and gives us excellent prices like these. I’m disappointed in the temple set not looking similar to the city of Atlantis, however the colour scheme provided by legofania makes me think of the portal of Atlantis, but probably smaller given the side builds. I’m also wondering what part lego could use for the dome covering the deck of the bounty and this one comes to mind immediately.

    10283 Space Set????

    I for one am absolutely ecstatic about the $270 price point. Given the excellent PPP of recent creator expert sets, this could very well place the amount of pieces at around 3000, which is honestly a dream for someone like me who missed out on sets like 10213 Shuttle Adventure. I also expect the set to be revealed sooner than later, as the recent creator expert Porsche 911 was revealed on January 28th, with a release date of March 1st. If the set does release in early or mid April, then I expect more info coming soon and a reveal within a month.

    LEGO Monkie Kid 2021

    The Mountain looks like one of those Friends jungle sets mixed with Jestro’s evil lair from Nexo Knights. The arachnid base isn’t really a base and looks like it’s been plucked straight out of Chima. The other sets either look way too blocky or way too colourful and messy (cough cough guardian lion). Not a fan of this wave at all :/

    LEGO Monkie Kid 2021

    Not a fan of the animal look of many chima sets, and I’d much rather the evil base be some ancient temple looking build then I what I think it’ll be. Who knows honestly, maybe I’ll be surprised.

    LEGO Monkie Kid 2021

    I think the Monkie Kid sets have proven themselves as being well designed, differently styled but similar to Ninjago sets. My only problem was the lack of any playsets! My favourite set was actually the large Mech not only because of the mech itself, but because of the excellent residential side build. I’m very happy that we’re getting a mountain set and also that it’s the largest side of the wave. If it has around 2000 pieces like the HQ set from last year, then that’s well into D2C piece count territory, and could end looking really good! Not too excited for the evil arachnid base, probably because I’m getting Chima flashbacks. Other standouts include the lion guardian and the dragon horse jet, excited to see what those look like.

    Lego Ideas 90th Anniversary Fan Vote

    I’m looking at all of the many problems created with this campaign and agree that the goal of celebrating Lego with this vote has not really been achieved. I think that the problems come in that Lego has a massive fan base of different ages and different tastes, and has accordingly given many options, but why only with only one set being created at the end of it all? I think that lego could have done two things: 1. Pick the top 3 or 4 most popular themes and make a couple sets 2. Or assure people that just because a theme doesn’t win doesn’t mean that the voices of those who voted will not go ignored, that every vote is being taken into consideration, and that remakes of old sets could come in the future (this could stop people from voting for only one theme, or feeling as if voting for what they really want is a waste of a vote and they need to vote strategically for something that might actually win) Just my two cents!

    10283 Space Set????

    No, I absolutely, totally agree with you. Upon hearing of the Columbia I was absolutely appalled. This is just as bad as making a Challenger set in my opinion. Just because the Colombia disaster is less known doesn’t make it any better. Imagine knowing some of the people on that shuttle and seeing this set at the mall... There are so many other space shuttles to pick from, and I hope this rumour comes out false.
  10. This whole wave seems very nice, most excited for the Mandalore throne and Vader’s meditation chamber. l’m really really hoping the $800 dollar set isn’t a Death Star or AT-AT, as we have gotten tons of those and having potentially having a new vehicle or location in this incredibly high price range is interesting to me. Is there any chance of the $800 dollar set maybe being the Nebulon B? That would be a dream come true for me..

    Even though I was disappointed by the brightening up of the blacksmith set, one set I have been excited for ever since it’s release is the Winnie the Pooh set! The show and books made my childhood, and I think that a lot of the things that ruined the blacksmith with benefit the Winnie the Pooh set. I want this set to be as bright and colourful as it gets. Also happy about the precedent set with Sesame Street to allow for new molds. I’m hoping we get a ton of characters, although I’m not sure how you’d do someone like tigger, hopefully a new molded tail that he can stand on! Any guesses as to a release date?

    LEGO Ninjago 2021

    There was a 136 day gap between promobricks first revealing the sets existence and the catalogue photos being revealed. Honestly feels like quite a journey.

    LEGO Ninjago 2021

    I think that people complaining about the minifigure selection in the gardens need to remember that it is coming in at an absolutely unheard of 5.3 cents per piece, and some stuff needs to be done to cut down on costs to make that price.

    I for one don’t like it very much. It looks too clean, and doesn’t have the grit, wear and aging of something in those times that was so well captured by the original. The roof is the biggest offence to me. I knew that they would have to change it, but it’s so oversimplified, and the use of 2x2 wedge pieces and shields in such a uniform and boring way doesn’t work for me at all. Not sure why this the case, especially when sets like the old fishing store pull off a worn roof look so well. Even though I was incredibly disappointed with what they did to Barracuda Bay, it works very well as a massive love letter to classic pirates, and I’m happy that fans of classic pirates got a massive set to celebrate their love of the theme. I’m not sure who this set is made for though, and I don’t think the alterations made to it are justified.

    LEGO Ninjago 2021

    I’m honestly excited as can be! A wave of steampunk ninja Aqua Raiders sets? What’s not to like? Wondering what a hydro bounty would look like.. hoping they still include a deck with sails and the like, but everything’s underwater.. I do hope 71755 is some sort of play set though, as the wave seems very focused on dragons and vehicles.
