    10497 Galaxy Explorer 90th anniversary set

    Just noticed something; the set may be labeled 18+ (for no other reason than to pander to adults who are insecure about buying toys), but the boxart isn't a black void! It looks like a proper set in every way!!!
  2. With the exception of the Snowman, this series is an utter fail to me. And it's the de facto 90th anniversary one at that. I mean, four (arguably 3-5) Christmas themed figures? Really?! That's fun!
  3. Who said anything about getting three at once and through preorder? Also not available for preorder in Europe.

  5. (Glad to see I wasn't the only one thinking of getting three )
  6. Just saw that this is a Mike Psiaki! That dude is probably the best designer at LEGO right now. Still a bit heartbroken he wasn't the one to design the DeLorean and that set just turned out very basic.
  7. Oh, that is gorgeous.

    Marvel Superheroes 2022 - Rumors & Discussion

    Hey, it actually looks pretty alright. I was incredibly disappointed by the Daily Bugle, but this one actually looks like I imagined it. Price is awful though. Absolutely wouldn't spend more than 200€ on it.
  9. They're still on promobricks, since they're not part of the LEGO network anymore. Man, I hope they planned to reveal the other sets at the Con, otherwise what's even the point now?
  10. Oh. Oh nooo. They look weird. The bodies are fine by themselves (what's weird is that people only seem to mention the long legs and not the long arms?), but those faces. The set itself is also nice, but I don't know if I can get over those faces. And the horse is also way too blue and bland. I imagined it as more dark blue with purple details because that's how I remembered them. The dragon thing looks a little stiff as well. They also came up with a new element for that bio-link Pandoran fauna has? Seems like an odd piece to include and assort design/development budget to. Maybe a new bow, or plant piece would've been a better choice? Also, so much for LEGO Con.
  11. Well, it's not as terrible as I thought. Still looks pretty sad. No red eyes for Vader :( I expected someone to mention it and nah. That set gets a bad rep, but it's really not that awful. Price was atrocious, but that was nothing new for Star Wars This one is worse.
  12. Wow, that has got to be not only the worst Star Wars set by far, but, just like, one of the saddest sets ever. Not complaining, just my opinion. Designers probably didn't have that much to go off in the first place. I liked the scene, but it wasn't exactly the most exciting location. Geez. Is it at least a not a store exclusive? 25€ (on sale) would be too bad for Vader with printed arms, Obi-Wan, Tala, and the loader droid.
  13. I'm really pumped for this. Mostly because it is a new theme.

    Disney Properties 2022 - Rumors & Discussion

    Is there a chance we'll get (minifigure-)sets for this or would we have already heard about 'em?
  15. Doesn't even go that far back. Pink only started to become a "girly" colour in the 50s. Largely popularised among girls and women in the US by then First Lady Mamie Eisenhower. Through American-imperialism/global-Manifest-Destiny/cultural-exportation the idea of pink, and other colours between red and blue, as intrinsically "female colours" spread across the world.
  16. I think it is. Specifically the price increases for playsets. I couldn't care less if they put another 200 bucks on the Titanic or another 50 on the typewriter. That's how they should offset rising transport and logistic costs. But not the small stuff. The stuff a poor kid asks their parents for twice a year, where 5 euro can already make a difference. Having been that poor kid I see this issue very clearly, and if you don't then you likely come from privilege.
  17. Is there a eurobricks topic where we can discuss the price hikes? I think it's absolutely outrageous TLG is doing that after two years of record revenue, inflation be damned. It's an expensive toy in the first place and sets are getting bigger and more expensive every year anyways. Now they're raising prices on regular playsets? Disgusting.

    LEGO 2019 Stranger Things Rumours Discussion

    Let's be real, neither Mando, nor any of the MCU shows are anywhere near as graphic as ST4.

    LEGO 2019 Stranger Things Rumours Discussion

    Yeah, y'all should probably give up hope after Stranger Things 4. The new season is extremely gruesome right out of the gate. Not that I wouldn't love a Creel house set, but I'm absolutley certain the theme is pretty much done.

    Bricklink Designer Program 2021 Discussion Thread

    On my LEGO order page all my orders are listed as "backordered", except for the diner which is listed as "waiting for new stock". What does it say on y'alls orders?
  21. Oh, awesome. Now the black classic classic Spaceman is the only one left. Plus 3 helmet colours for legacy classice Spacemen.

    LEGO Ninjago 2022

    So will this be the final season in this continuity? Will there be a reboot afterwards? I'm over 5 years behind on the show and I don't think I'll ever catch up, especially since I left the target demo a long time ago and don't enjoy the show anymore. Just curious if this is the ending, because would probably tune in for the last couple of episodes if it is.

    Woah, another thing I was wrong about. I assumed this round wouldn't sell out due to the high prices. 4 out of 5 on the first day! Probably a lot more resellers than last time, though hopefully also just more regular fans.

    Bricklink Designer Program 2021 Discussion Thread

    Welp, I did it. I ordered all of them because of FOMO. I will probably end up cancelling most, if not all because I do NOT have that kind of money. Or impulse control. Altough the Observatory is pretty nice. That may be the only one I'll get. But because the market is so f***ed right now I don't know if I'll be able to bring myself to open it. For that same reason I can't bring myself to open the canopy of my UCS Slave I. 200 frickin bucks for a single piece. I hope TLG re-releases that piece soon, so I can just open mine and finish the damn model!
