  1. I totally agree that they are pricing themselves out of the impulse buy market. In general, under 10 dollars is what I consider impulse buy territory but the price creep on minifigs is making them unreasonable for the general population. Said the Mom that spent more to buy the ones I/ my kids wanted of Bricklink and just quarantined them for a week or so before I gave them to my kids. But that is only because I'm a more engaged Lego fan than a lot of parents. I'd be annoyed to spend that amount of money and get something my kid was disappointed in. In general, I think blind bag culture is making our children entitled, chronologically disappointed little monsters so we just don't engage with it as much as we can beyond the occasional small treat.

    What about Monkie Kid? Listen, I'm no expert but based on how quickly Lego clamped down on Monkie Kid leaks and the content they generated I wouldn't be surprised to learn a Monkie Kid movie is in early stages of development.

    Friends 2020 - Rumors & Discussion

    The alpaca set looks great! I think every single one of the jungle subtheme has a ton to offer- so much nature scenery! I bet $2 internet dollars my fam enda up with every set, jungle cubes included.

    Friends 2020 - Rumors & Discussion

    I would say so- as a parent I don't necessarily care about PPP for sets less than $20. There is a a lot of play value in the portability and $10 is prime impulse buy range. My kids have really taken to them- so much so that I hope City produces some similar vignettes. I think it is a neat way to produce some pieces that would fill some niche desires. There doesn't seem to be a huge will to create a library set for example- I think a cute city Library cube would be a day 1 purchase for us!

    Friends 2020 - Rumors & Discussion

    You'd appreciate Animal Train Town, our little layout based on my two kid's respective obsessions- the Dragon and Dinosaur district is a personal favorite of mine! : ) My gal is legendary for her love of all things animals especially in Lego form. She got 4 duplicates of the Turtle Rescue for her birthday from uncles and friends! (kept two, returned the others to use towards a Jurassic set!) Both of my kids can't wait to get their hands on the upcoming sets for the animals they have their eyes on- I notice my nieces and nephews are the same way! Seems like this year we are getting so many fun animals that maybe we can anticipate more and more great animals based on continued interest from kids (and their adults!!)

    The waterfall looks really awesome! My kiddo pointed out that it looks like it comes with 5 animals which meets her gold standard. Excited to see the waffle House/ restaurant in particular!

    Add me to the camp that hopes the National Geographic tie in continues and we get these animals in ecology/education themed sets.

    Latest news about Lego animal moulds

    Yes!!! I really love this idea and would think it would have widespread appeal from Duplo age- AFOL age. I think this would be a great way to avoid the negative attention a zoo theme might bring while encouraging the deep connection people feel to animals and their welfare. I do think Lego avoids it quite nicely with the yearly animal rescue theme within Friends so I'm sure they could really do a nice job within City. A nice animal rescue, nature preserve or wild life rescue, perhaps?

    The poly bag has the National Geographic Logo on it. Lego and National Geographic seems like a slam dunk partnership. Could this be the way we get many exotic animals in Lego form? Education and conservation paired with the platform Lego has? I am really excited at the prospect!
