    Marvel Superheroes 2021 - Rumors & Discussion

    It’s rather difficult to quantify such a demand, to be honest. My 3 year old daughter likes to pit Joker and Harley against Batman and Batgirl, because she knows that heroes have to stop the villains and she’s all about girl power. Without measure, it would be folly for Lego to crowbar him needlessly into sets if kids didn’t like him. Same with every other toy company that has a DC license. The world is a big place, just because you don’t experience something does not mean that it doesn’t exist.

    That would be ultimate trolling on Lego’s part. “What do you want?” ”Daredevil! We’ve been begging you for him forever!” ”Here he comes... “ I just went onto the site you got yours from and it’s the exact same photo! Not just the same figure, but the same photo. What a doughnut.
  3. It was established a while back that Lego would only be making humans with standard heads, something started with the Disney CMF. While Yosemite Sam could be done this way, Elmer would require a new mould. It works with Marvin on account of him not being human, but to have a mix of both would be a strange inconsistency. While it’s a bind to miss them, I can see the dilemma.

    You’ll find us in the DC thread.

    Very nice! I hope to do something similar at some point. Food for thought. Good use of colour, and a good scale.

    No worries. You’re on point about the satire though. The whole thing is a satire of different characters, but we’ve morphed into a world where you’re not allowed to take the mick out of deserving subjects because you might be perpetuating the bad part of the stereotype

    Not seen Shazam yet, that’s next. I quite liked it, for an Aquaman film I’m not sure what people were expecting but there was a lot of good water effects, a lot of mental sea creatures, Orm being a tool with a cause, the birth of Black Manta done in a pretty decent way that gives scope for a return. It’s not without its faults, but I’ve seen worse. A big, solid tank, not the weird folding battering ram thing from a few years back.

    We finally got round to watching Aquaman because it’s free on Amazon Prime and I’m a tightwad, and we got so far through thinking that our young son would enjoy it, right up to the desert scene when Aquaman drops 3/4 s**ts. Now about that Bat tank...

    An element of collectability, a sense of nostalgia, a reward for fan loyalty. I feel that they add nothing to you, but they do to others. You not liking something doesn’t make it irrelevant. It could be argued that by having a Harry Potter theme at all, Lego are cashing in.

    If there’s a second series then I would suspect that they would go more for variants than new. Granted there are plenty of missing characters, but with some of the omissions being on a hit list they would have to reconsider. As cowboys have been in the CMF before, I can see Sam being made, and with a standard head. A holster belt mould would be a good addition. Duck Dodgers would be an obvious one, as much as the Loontern is on my list. Porky as Space Cadet is the only alternative I can think of for him. Granny with a standard head would work. Bugs in a dress would be a good callback, but I reckon that would be a bit of a hot potato. Elmer would really require a head mould and a hat mould, as would Hazel. Foghorn is a possibility. Gossamer would need a pretty big mould, and as has been seen from this series the moulds have come at the expense of everything else. Additional characters and any other alternates would be a stretch, so I’m not sure another series would happen.

    Like when we were told that the 4+ set was 1966 based, or the guesswork surrounding the D2C. I’ve never second guessed the legitimacy of the D2C, in fact a few pages back you’ll see that I said that I went all in on it being the ’66 Batmobile, something I still stand by. If the last twelve months have taught me anything, it’s not to be surprised by anything Lego is prepared to do.

    Given the misinformation that has been circulating this year with various themes, I’m not entirely convinced. Anyway if it proves a popular and successful film then there is hope.

    We don’t, but we could use the cartoon as a good example of no means no, that women are actually worthy of respect not sleaze. Pepe is unaware of his stink, but he’s also unaware of the continued rejection he receives. We learn from that, not emulate it.

    We got Deadshot, Captain Boomerang, Croc, and Katana in n tie-in sets. There is a teeny bit of hope. Is that right? I’ve not seen that. Bummer if it is.

    Really? Petunia was in very few animations and did pretty much nothing for the best part of thirty years because she was a secondary character to Porky, and his popularity waned in the Forties. And even then she didn’t become a recurring character until another thirty years had passed. She’s had more attention in the last twenty years than in the previous sixty, by a significant margin. I don’t think you’d have to look too far to find people who could recognise Daisy before Petunia.
