    The Lego Movie 2 - The Second Part 2019 Set Discussion

    I just got all of the regular sets (minus the building boxes, Rex’s Rexplorer and the big Metalbeard set, both of which are probably retailer exclusives) at my local Migros (Swiss retailer)
  2. It’s one of the regular IG sources (who doesn’t post publicly, it’s always someone else who copies their intel). I think this year the CC rumour surfaced before the Y-Wing one, but I‘m not 100% sure that was the case, please correct me if I‘m wrong
  3. There‘s a rumour circulating in the usual place, claiming a 4000+ pieces D2C set is going to be released next October (75252). I wonder what location/large ship could justify such a high piece count?
  4. Marvel got one last year, albeit based on AoU rather than IW It also makes sense for DC to get a new one in order to compensate for the relatively small winter wave. It has also been a while since the last DC D2C (60‘s Batcave), the Joker Manor doesn‘t count since TLBM was its own separate theme
  5. I think they will stick to the earliest versions of the minifigs for the anniversary sets, so it‘s probably more realistic to expect the regular 2000 Boba rather than the 2003 CC version
  6. That seems plausible since they didn't reuse the video game version and his hat isn't a new mould

    Lego Overwatch 2019 - Rumors & Discussion

    Seriously? If the mere mention of Gibraltar would cause such a controversy, TLG wouldn‘t have planned to release that set in the first place It‘s just a space shuttle for crying out loud, the only thing „Gibraltar“ about it is the set‘s name and the location in the game (which I haven‘t heard any complaints about either).
  8. To me, it sounds like those figures are added as a bonus and thus probably don’t necessarily replace minifigs we would have gotten otherwise I highly doubt the discussion went like this: „let‘s include Gasgano in the podracer set!“ „Nah, he gotta go, bring in yellow Ani“

    Harry Potter 2018 - Rumors & Discussion

    I agree, they’ve introduced so many new reusable moulds this year that there’s no real need for new ones apart from animals and fantastic beasts Most characters they haven’t done yet can easily be realised with existing moulds (e.g. Sirius, Tonks or Bellatrix), so that should leave a substantial portion of the budget to creature moulds. Of course one could argue against that by citing the circumstance that the 2011 wave didn’t do this either, but then again the 2010 sets only introduced three moulds (the now overused slicked-back hair, Bellatrix’ hairpiece and the updates owl) and 1 new cloth piece, so obviously the budget is much much higher this time around
  10. I think it does, don’t two of the rumored sets use placeholder names like ‘hero vehicle’ and ‘villain vehicle’? As far as I’m aware, this kind of placeholder has only been used for sets based on upcoming material, at least up until this point
  11. I think that‘s the more likely scenario as well, but then 2019 would be the first year without a proper Summer wave To me, the April wave is the weird part, why not in June/July as usual? It made sense this year due to Solo being released in May, but it’s pretty weird to repeat that in 2019. Unless the original 1999 sets were first released in April, but I can’t remember

    Harry Potter 2018 - Rumors & Discussion

    It‘s really hard to tell if those are previews for next year‘s sets or just the artist‘s interpretation (and I agree, the artwork is fantastic!). Instead of redesigning Buckbeak, they could‘ve just repurposed the 2004 mould, but they chose not to. Let‘s hope this is indication for what might await us Moreover, this year‘s sets have been more creature-focused than previous iterations of the theme (Aragog, the Basilisk, Fawkes, a Thestral, Hedwig, Scabbers, Nagini, Crookshanks, a Niffler, a Bowtruckle, the suitcase beasts and a Dementor), mainly to tie it in with FB in all likelihood, but maybe that trend continues next year
  13. Based on previous years, I think it‘s about time for the next set lists to pop up, isn‘t it? I‘m still wondering if there‘s going to three or four waves in 2019. The latter (i.e. January, April, June and October) would be a bit overkill IMO, but then again, it‘s the twentieth anniversary, so they might go all out
