  1. Harry Potter 2018 - Rumors & Discussion

    Lego intentionally waits until after Christmas to increase sales. If new sets come out December 1, those are the sets that get bought for kids for Christmas. If new sets come out January 1, the sell lots of September releases in December, and then people buy the new January releases once they come out. They essentially make it so people who want January releases, buy something else for Christmas and buy the new sets as well when they are released.
  2. Lego BrickHeadz 2018 - Rumors & Discussion

    I’m close enough to a lego store and discovery center I’ll be able to get one. So you know what it is? Please just tell me it isn’t a brickhead Geoffrey. The insistence on it being a TRU exclusive has me worried after the last Geoffrey set LEGO made.
  3. Harry Potter 2018 - Rumors & Discussion

    It is a bummer that we get the same minifigs in this set, but it should be expected to get a lot of Harry Potter minifigs, as he is the title character. It is just like the Lego Batman Movie sets, in which 20 of the 24 sets included Batman with only 4 variants (only facial expressions were different, the torso, legs and cowl were all the same). In the end these are toys made for kids (granted there is a growing number of sets that are targeting AFOLs), and kids want a Batman, or a Harry when they are playing. As an AFOL these sets need to be appreciated for what they includes for builds and non Harry minifigs, and just accept the Harry minifig as an bonus piece that you get.

    so will it be available through The Lego stores and shop@home, or are we SOL on this one.

    going to go out on a limb and guess that this set is not a TRU exclusive
  6. Eurobricks: A Visual User Guide

    I was trying to figure out what the 1x1 brick/plates mean before a topic. It seems to only address a couple of them, but not the ones that are a different color stack of 1x1 plates. Where can I find that information?

    It appears to use the regular train wheels so I assume it would fit on tracks The box art does not offer up any indication that it is compatible with a power function like it did for the Christmas train or other trains, so it would have to be all on you to mod it (no extra instructions in the book to help you). Also the tinder car appears to be too small to fit a battery pack do that would definitely need to be lengthened to make it work.

    I’ll take your word for it because I can’t make out the rounded end. But it does look like the printing on the body is a sticker (I think I see the edge of the sicker).
  9. Harry Potter 2018 - Rumors & Discussion

    Is it? I thought at first it was, but it doesn’t look like it has the taper the new piece has. Could just be they way the picture is taken though?

    I just did a google image search for "Lego 75956" and pictures were in the first couple of pictures.

    Joker Manor which was a D2C released December 2017(November 15 for VIP members) was officially announced on September 26. SO i would assume around the same time fram, which means you won't know at the time of the first wave release. When you go to the Lego store to make your purchase, ask them for a free shipping code, then you can wait until the release and make up your mind, order online, redeem VIP, points and get free shipping. Saves a trip that way.

    You only earn points on what you actually pay for. So if you buy a $100 set and use $10 worth of VIP points you earn 90 vip points for that purchase. And not that I really care, but I'm sure others will get angry about the "off-topic" conversation, you might want to take future VIP related questions to a related message board.
  15. DC Superheroes 2018 - Set Discussion

    Maybe it’s that the batman Lego movie sets have made my expectations much higher for batman sets, but these new reveals are terrible. I will be passing on every one of them (unless I see the one with the dog deeply discounted).
