    LEGO IDEAS - Dinosaurs Fossils Skeletons

    What often helps me is, when I see a set in the store that has been build. But if you still don't like, just don't buy it. Nobody forces you to pay for it :)

    LEGO IDEAS - Dinosaurs Fossils Skeletons

    I agree with you on the stickers, that really shouldn't have been a problem to make the name tags as prints. As I heard though, the towballs or sockets are tough to make with different colours as they change the material properties quite a bit, can't tell you a source though. I guess by now they would've made them in different colours if it was easy. There are quite a few sets where grey doesn't fit the scheme of the build. But in the end, it is Lego and you don't have to buy it if you don't like it, or do buy it and change what you want ;) Well, but that is just "taste" I think. I agree that they don't look as "bony" now, but I can also see why they changed it so much. The project was all digital, I don't even know if it would have been possible (even with the supports) to make them at all standing the way they were designed by the fan. I see the set as great starter set, that you can alter, change parts or extend with more dinosaurs if you like.

    LEGO IDEAS - Dinosaurs Fossils Skeletons

    I think what people should realise is, that a LEGO "Ideas" project is just an "idea" for them to make a set upon. I'm sure LEGO does not have the urge to stay as close as possible to the project. Instead they take the idea and make a set out of it, that goes along with their standards of quality like sturdiness, playability etc. And they have to look economically at it. There is an interesting article on Brickset saying they would have to make 46 parts new in tan, that haven't been produced at all or just way back in comparison with the actual set. Imagine how many new parts they wood have needed for something close to the project?

    So, what are Leaf, IP-2 and Zebra?

    I think that could be related to Wall-E, so like single Disney brick-built characters. Imagine the Star Wars BB8, Porg and Yoda (which btw is also Disney), but with characters like Mickey, Donald, Stitch, you name it....

    Latest news about Lego animal moulds

    The Harry Potter people in the Licensed thread say it's not Errol. As I wrote there, I could imagine the Bulldog in the Modular Building, and the owl maybe to a possible Winnie the Pooh ideas set, that just reached 10.000 votes. But Hidden Side seems plausible as well.

    Harry Potter 2020 - Rumors & discussion

    In know that the regular Ideas timeframes work like that, but Steamboat Willie was like already on shelves, pretty much right after the announcement. As this is also Disney this COULD happen ;)

    Harry Potter 2020 - Rumors & discussion

    I could imagine, that the bulldog belongs to the creator expert modular building that is due in January. That would fit the time of the leak and last years modular also had animals (parrot, bunny and shepherd). The leaked "robber", that came along with the bulldog could also fit the modular building. I guess the owl doesn't look old enough to be in a possible Winnie the pooh ideas set, does it? Because one reached the 10.000 votes lately.

    LEGO 2019 Stranger Things Rumours Discussion

    The "Westminster Quarters" are still a bit irritating then. Looking at the wiki article, there's no connection at all to Russia. In the US there's a connection to the Yankees and Lakers, but I kinda doubt both. Maybe it is this (taken from the wiki article): "Some electronic civil defense sirens in the United States manufactured by Federal Signal Corporation such as the Electronic Outdoor Warning Siren (EOWS), Modulator, and the Directional Speaker Array (DSA) sound off the chimes on a daily basis." https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Westminster_Quarters

    I'm really digging this "we're not in Hawkins anymore". In addition to the Big Ben sound makes me wonder if they actually will be in London.
  15. There was an interview about the Lester availability at the store opening, which I‘m now to lazy to search for, but it said the following: Originally it wasn‘t planned to release the fig physically at all and was just meant for promotion. When they realized how popular it was they decided to make it physically. Only problem was that the they had less than 300 black bowler hats in storage. Time was too short to make new ones in time for the opening, but printing torso and head wasn‘t a problem. So that limited number of 275 was due to the shortage of the hat. As they were expecting a lot of people for the opening, they came up with the scratch lottery that not just the first few people get them, but you had the chance all over the opening weekend to get one. As soon as they had the capacities for the bowler hat, lester was put in polybags for everyone to get.
