    Marvel Superheroes 2024 - Rumors & Discussion

    Well, there’s no guarantee we’re getting a new modular next year in the first place Sure, there’s been one every year since 2021, but that doesn’t mean it’s still continuing as a yearly thing Next year’s D2C set might as well be a new Helicarrier

    But how can a train set be standalone without a locomotive? So it’d be the same set basically, just without the locomotive or the coal thingie? And there‘d be another big issue besides @JeanGreyForever‘s point, namely the interior. One of the main features of the HE set are the scenes with the quotes on top. Which other scenes would an expansion depict? The Death Eaters stopping the train in DH1?

    They‘d never sell a set that absolutely requires already owning another one, let alone at this price point. I’ve said the same thing about a microscale Hogwarts extension before, but this would work even less NOBODY would buy this set unless they have the other one. Plus the sales would have to be below the HE’s since not every owner of that set would go out and buy the extension.

    2 points about that: The two random students didn’t have any new prints or pieces, so it’s not comparable to random professors or ghosts who’d definitely need that. Making unnamed characters out of existing parts makes sense, spending part of the theme’s budget on them does not The choice was not between these two students who added nothing to the budget and adult Ron & Hermione who would’ve needed four new prints. If you wanna blame other minifigs for their exclusion, blame some of the ones that did get new prints

    My point is just that it wouldn’t make much sense to give us unnamed professors, students, and ghosts when there are still quite a few named ones they could do first I doubt there are many people who’d prefer random teacher #5 over Vector or random ghost #3 over the Bloody Baron. Sure, their screentime may be comparable, but the fact they’re named helps

    Only after we got at least one version of each of the named characters Even random unnamed characters would require new prints and recoloured pieces, so it’d be kinda silly to spend part of the budget on that when we still have missing named characters

    I must rewatch the movies at some point because I really thought the only ghosts we see are the four house ghosts and Myrtle Whoopsie. Still, I refuse to believe they’d include a random ghost and some unnamed extra over actual named characters

    LEGO Star Wars 2024 Set Discussion - READ FIRST POST!!!

    Exactly, there isn’t any wiggle room! Either the new rumour is wrong, or either Young Leia or R2-KT aren‘t part of the anniversary roster after all. If Leia isn‘t an anniversary fig, her set would have to be LO-LA, which is kinda too late However, R2-KT not being counted as one of the six would make some sense, since she‘s technically not a minifig and the only character not to be included in a regular set.

    The current rumour is 10, so there’s no reason to expect more, unless you want to be disappointed

    Both dwarves have mid-legs (i.e., the cleric in the set and the barbarian in the CMF), whereas the halfling druid in the CMF and the gnome fighter in the set both have short legs. It’s all consistent

    I have to admit, I‘m curious how they‘ll handle it, since they seemingly confirmed that Gardner will have his signature bowl cut Based on that alone, I assume his role will be rather comical. It‘s exciting to think that TLG may be working on the sets as we speak, since I‘d assume them to launch next May. I really hope they‘ll have somewhat of a budget for the subtheme, given they have to share it with Marvel who undoubtedly is gonna use quite a big chunk of it for the F4 sets alone

    Batman (DC Superheroes) 2024 - Rumors & Discussion

    @legoturtle: 4 points: That trailer is fake/fan-made. It even has the old title Gunn confirmed that Batman is not set to appear in this movie. Batman being involved or not has no bearing on the sets we might get. Superman should be able to sell merch on his own Even if Batsy was in the movie, he’d not have a big enough role to warrant a set. The movie gets released next summer, so why would there be sets this year already?

    There are some unnamed teachers seen in the GH scenes, but definitely no generic ghosts, since there are only 5 ghosts at Hogwarts And why would they do an unnamed background teacher if they could include Vector? Granted, that used to be an unnamed extra too, but thanks to the LEGO games we now know it's her, same with Sinistra

    I fully expect them to recycle one of the three Jonkler minifigs from last year Batgirl hasn’t shown up since 2021, so the chances for a new design for her aren’t too bad I think

    Good question I hope grey, since it’s the only colour we have more than one ghost in (blue: Myrtle, GITD: Nick, grey: Myrtle, Nick, & Grey Lady) If it was a GITD Bloody Baron, we’d also need a Grey Lady in that colour to match them
