    Marvel Superheroes 2023 - Rumors & Discussion

    The only ones he guessed correctly were Avatar and Indy, which were both VERY obviously getting sets. Broken clock and all that I have some secret insider knowledge too: CA:NWO and Thunderbolts will get sets! Incredible, right?! Hey, Dune is pretty popular! I don’t know how well a LEGO theme would sell, but the recent two-part adaptation is excellent IMO and well-liked. B2T: Still not sure what to make of that X-Mansion. Some of the minifigs shown here would be cool to get, but the model itself needs some serious work. If this was the only leak, I wouldn‘t believe it was real

    Lord of the rings sets returning? *Updated for 2023

    Um, no. Don’t get me wrong, it’s a great piece, but it doesn’t fit the Middle-Earth style of Orc at all, in my opinion. Looks more like the WoW orcs with their tusk-like teeth

    That Sailbarge set is definitely one of the few among the survey leaks that could still reasonably be released this year. It would fit in perfectly with the 40th anniversary of ROTJ and the alleged Max Rebo leak Then again, it looks decisively less polished than a lot of the other sets and as has been pointed out before, TLG is notoriously nonchalant about celebrating anniversaries Exciting times either way!

    Latest news about Lego animal moulds

    The theme codenamed “Sparkle” is allegedly based on Gabby’s Dollhouse, a Netflix show produced by Dreamworks. Never heard of the series before, but it features a lot of cat characters, so we might get some interesting new cat pieces here

    Lego [codename] Sparkle

    Exactly. We’re definitely not the target audience for this, but the cat pieces could be interesting! This would mark the fourth Netflix collab then, after Stranger Things, Camp Cretaceous, and Queer Eye

    Lord of the rings sets returning? *Updated for 2023

    Exactly! I’ve seen comments that this set should only be $300 or less. Come on, this is 80cm wide, at least 40cm tall, and pretty deep too! I think the price is justified, especially with the piece count and number of minifigs in mind Edit: It’s actually either 11 or 12 Hobbits tall, depending on which one you pick as a reference Hoping for the former, would save me a headache

    I was surprised too! It doesn’t look that tall, but the tower on the left is 12 Hobbits tall …I hereby propose to use Hobbits as a measuring unit. You’re welcome.

    Lego [codename] Sparkle

    According to fanklockow.pl, the theme is based on Gabby’s Dollhouse, a Dreamworks show. Never heard of it

    Lord of the rings sets returning? *Updated for 2023

    I hope they only slightly tweak the old faceprints, as they were all pretty much perfect In general they’ve been really consistent with faceprints for the last 10+ years, so the 2012 ones wouldn‘t look out of place at all. Heck, they’re still using the 2012 Bruce Wayne faceprint! Pretty stark contrast to the dark times (pre 2010), where nothing was consistent and every theme had different styles Btw, is my estimation correct that Rivendell is roughly 42 centimeters tall? I found some shelf space, but if the model is any taller, I’m screwed

    Lord of the rings sets returning? *Updated for 2023

    I was too busy gawking at the other leaks to pay proper attention to the Rivendell one. Man, this is such a gorgeous set! I was expecting a microscale model with 3-4 minifigs, so this by far surpasses all of my expectations! Not only do we get the entire fellowship, but so many other cool minifigs including the long-awaited old man Bilbo. And the build itself is phenomenal! Amazing colour scheme too. The choice to restart the theme with Rivendell felt weird to me ever since it was announced, but after seeing this, I have to say they made the right call. Can‘t wait for official pictures Hope the leakers are right and we get to see it next week. And then there‘s Barad-dûr. If this doesn‘t get released, I will personally lead an Orc army into Denmark

    And if they don‘t, their licensing partners will Disney and Nintendo in particular ain‘t huge fans of this sort of breach

    Marvel Superheroes 2023 - Rumors & Discussion

    On top of that, as others have pointed out before, including Rivendell would be an incredibly boneheaded move if this was all just a troll. Why purposefully include a set that will reveal the truth in less than a month? Had Rivendell not been included, we could’ve stayed in the dark for an entire year!

    Marvel Superheroes 2023 - Rumors & Discussion

    Nah, look at how detailed and massive some of these are. You don‘t design something like that in just a couple of days, this must at least take months! Sure, the X-Mansion looks pretty rough, but all the others look like they have a lot of work put into them
  14. BrickBob Studpants

    Wizarding World 2023 - Rumors & Discussion

    Have you seen all of them? Because they‘re so detailed and well-designed, it‘s almost unthinkable that somebody would put in this much effort just to troll people. There’s real talent and passion behind them. I‘ve said it before, but if they‘re fake, the person responsible needs to be hired by TLG immediately

    DC Superheroes 2023 - Rumors & Discussion

    Same! The Vidiyo slime head would work really well for him. Would be pretty silly not to take advantage of that before the mould retires Other formerly Vidiyo-exclusive parts have started to show up in other themes, so this wouldn‘t be too far-fetched

    Marvel Superheroes 2023 - Rumors & Discussion

    Keep in mind that it could well be a DC set The theme does return from hibernation, after all

    Disney Properties 2023 - Rumors & Discussion

    Of course it looks similar, it‘s based on the same source material The optics aren‘t great though, that‘s true. Maybe the set was already in early development when the project hit 10k and they rejected it for that reason

    Indiana Jones 2023 - Rumors & Discussion

    My point was that these will likely be officially revealed very soon, so there‘s no real point in hoping for a leak

    Mask of the Phantasm has its 30th anniversary this year

    Marvel Superheroes 2023 - Rumors & Discussion

    I've been following leaks since 2005 (the ROTS leaks to be precise) and I can attest that something like this has NEVER happened before. Heck, we didn't even know surveys like that were a thing! Maybe they've been doing it for years and this just marks the first time an actual AFOL participated Yeah, we were quick to judge, but we've seen these schemes plenty of times before. After a while, you know how to spot one, but still, this was a clear false negative. Pretty rare, but it can happen. Again, sincerest apologies to @JeanGreyForever. This cannot be understated.

    Which would be terrible. Honestly, I'd rather not know about a set than having one leak that doesn't end up happening

    The OoT version somehow looks very bland compared to the BotW one. I know which one I‘ll be displaying

    If this is the work of a troll, they need to be hired by TLG this instant. Those are some of the best-looking sets I‘ve seen in my life
  24. BrickBob Studpants

    Indiana Jones 2023 - Rumors & Discussion

    Except for Rivendell. And some of the Disney ones have to be 2023 sets too, due to the anniversary. Same goes for the BTAS set, which would coincide with the 30th anniversary of Mask of the Phantasm

    DC Superheroes 2023 - Rumors & Discussion

    Drat! I display the Art sets in my hallway, but since this monstrosity includes minifigs, it has to go in my LEGO room. But I don‘t have any wallspace in there… Maybe I‘ll stick it to the ceiling
