    Monkey Kid (“Leaf”) Theme Discussion

    Just read that Monkey, the ‘80s cult tv series adaptation of Journey to the West, was actually a Japanese TV production of the Chinese story. So maybe we should leave Asian cultural definitions and arguments well alone and just wait to see what this Lego theme brings.

    LEGO Hidden Side 2020

    There’s actually episodes 12 (El Fuego’s Stunt Plane) and 13 (Doom Buggy) on YT, but you’ll have to use a VPN set to outside of Europe to view.

    LEGO Hidden Side 2020

    I made the “mistake” of letting mine know about the castle coming in the summer. Cue the very first time he’s agreed to start saving his pocket money

    LEGO Hidden Side 2020

    Generally I have no interest in lots of other hugely popular themes like Harry Potter, recent Ninjago etc. Which is why I don’t read, never mind actually post in those areas and if I did, it wouldn’t be to say “what’s the point of this theme?” Seriously, why bother? It’s basically thread-crapping. Me and mine too!

    Potential LEGO Scooby-Doo comeback in 2020?

    Not quite. Mystery machine was the big seller, then mummy museum (cheap impulse buy) and then the lighthouse. The mansion was a shelf-warmer given it’s high price and poor execution, and ended up deeply discounted.

    Reading that brickset article, it seems these are empty boxes shown in Copenhagen as a concept to test the market interest.

    @Falconfan1414 are you able to say when details (if not images) will be made available? Nothing before NYTF in a couple of weeks?

    Lego Architecture 2020

    I'm not surprised he's gone his own way (the Atom Brick) and partnered with the FLW foundation. Those sets look nice but I'd have preferred to see them in Lego brick form. The Architecture theme used to make gems such as Falling Water and Robie House. Then came were then sets some like Trevi Fountain and Guggenheim (latest) to balance architectural merit with commercial interest. Recently, other than Trafalgar Square, churning out dull uninspired stuff like a large scale Empire State Building and yet another White House, is a big let down. I don't mind the skyline series as a successful way to keep revenues up and maybe subsidise larger more interesting sets, but even those are creeping up in price, the Tokyo/Dubai sets now at 60 notes. There's been a bit of soul selling of the theme IMO.

    Better comparison is the yellow typographic outline on the box’s LEGO logo. That too “looks” slightly cool yellow but we know it’s not.

    That logo is taken from the artwork in the recent IP filing by Lego so I’d say that’s final.

    It’s a tough call but to my eyes/screen, the rear box pic suggests it’s normal yellow unfortunately.
