    Looney Tunes 2021 - Rumors & Discussion

    Marvin only appeared five times in the early years, and we know he’s coming. Turns out guest villains (as they would have been) were used quite sparingly. I never realised that it was that sparingly.

    You got a source for that? And by that I don’t mean some YouTube attention seeker or a comics page with a quote from a disgruntled former employee? Honestly I like reading comics and I like reading about them, but fan sites and supposed insider sites have an appalling reputation when it comes to verifiable news. Can we steer this back towards Lego inspired by comics? The last thing this thread needs is a 24 hour foot up the big behind like the Harry Potter one.

    I had it in my mind that his torso was black, I don’t know why. I think it must be that he looks odd without the skirt. Angry face, maybe just a few shirt wrinkles. Either way, Marvin!

    Having bought our son LB3 for Christmas, I second that. If not I’ll mod him without the mask. Torso isn’t right, is it? Other than that, it’s Marvin. This doesn’t make me very angry

    Meh, in 1979 Kenner bought the toy rights to Alien. I know which one I’d be happier showing to my son.

    The Disney CMF series has featured the Cheshire Cat and Alice. Nobody needs to be qualified in anything to know that taking photos of nude children is wrong. The Burton films were made with this knowledge in hand. That isn’t the issue. I would say Disney has the upper hand on this one, and there’s little else to it. Who knows why Hush has never been done.

    He was too busy crowing about Macedonia’s considerably normal and well regulated copyright laws to read it through

    Harry Potter 2021 - Rumors & Discussion

    I honestly couldn’t disagree with you more on all of that. Given how many countries have standard copyright laws, I will desist from further comment. @Lego-Freak has covered the rest.

    Harry Potter 2021 - Rumors & Discussion

    Lego has the right to be in control of when and how their products get revealed to the world, not some YouTube no mark. I dare say that there aren’t that many companies that have such a circus surrounding leaking product reveals. They are a private company, they shouldn’t have to put just as much effort into protecting product releases as they do into the products themselves. Of course a court should entertain this, it’s an ownership and privacy issue as much as it is a copyright one. They don’t owe you anything. I appreciate that this is veering off topic, and I shall return to anticipating the sets.

    MOC: Gotham City Museum Heist

    This is brilliant, so much detail to go through so I shall highlight the three things that made me laugh 1. the Spartans pointy man nipples (™️ Chandler Bing) 2. the goons err, exotic evening attire 3. the fact it took me ages to find Freeze in your initial photos, when he’s hiding right in the focal point Again, cracking stuff, always enjoy your builds, especially the DC ones.

    I’m being dim and can’t find it, does it indicate when the 230€ is due out?

    VIDIYO - Universal Music 2021

    For those who bought full boxes, there was a crapshoot regarding how many of each figure would be in there. Some would be five per box, some one (the chase figures), and despite there being a recognised order of where to find them in the box, it didn’t always happen. 16 doesn’t go into 60, so theoretically there were three full sets and twelve others in the box. With a series of 12, they go into a box of 60, and I believe that there will be smaller boxes too. Argos in the UK are selling them for £1 each.

    VIDIYO - Universal Music 2021

    All other accounts suggest the opposite, that the DC series sold well, and at the very least was not an epic fail. Lego gave a reason for the switch to 12 from 16, and I believe it involved acknowledging that some people buy a full box, and the new ones contain full sets rather than mixed numbers.

    DC Superheroes 2021 - Rumors & Discussion

    I’m surprised it’s coming, I would have thought that it would appear when the original set did. I regret not buying it now, I really should have. I’m intrigued by the choice and I’m genuinely intrigued by whether it has any relation to the other set that’s talked about. Mainly because I stated a while back that I was all in with a ’66 Batmobile.

    DC Superheroes 2021 - Rumors & Discussion

    @cosmic the AT&T thing has been a rumour for a while now, and more points in the direction of a corporate restructuring and production reshuffle than it does to them selling off DC. Comic sales in general are lower than they have been previously, the only exceptions now being the seemingly endless stream of variant covers; i.e. people are buying for resale or investment instead of for the contents. Spielberg is lined up to make Blackhawk - whether he still will is a different issue. As for what DC needs, in terms of the films, is someone with the foresight like Kevin Feige. Geoff Johns was supposed to fill that role but he has too many balls in the air to do it properly. Generally the comparison with Marvel isn’t worth it because they have a powerhouse behind them with Disney. They captured lightning in a bottle with the MCU, and there was very little DC could do to match or best it. Personally I am looking forward to seeing an Aquaman sequel that doesn’t have Amber Heard in it because Manta deserves another bite of the cherry, Black Adam because I have waited a long time to see the JSA in big screen live action, the projected interaction with Shazam, and the aforementioned Blackhawk. As for Synder’s JL, if it gets DC a few more new fans then I’m happy. If any of them help encourage someone at Lego to reconsider the lack of love towards the DC property, I will be happier still. Perhaps something without Batman in would be novel. Call me crazy.

    This could really benefit from better/professional images.

    You’d be surprised how much money there is older content. Sure Marvel is pulling in a lot more but it keeps me in pocket. I’m sticking with my original suggestion.

    That didn’t stop a Helicarrier being made before a minifigure scale one. I would however be happy with a large scale TDKR Bat. If it’s another Arkham I’d be interested if the roster is good. If it turns into a rehash of the usual gallery I’d pass. A GCPD would tempt me. It would surprise me if it’s not Batman themed, so I’ll reserve any deeper cuts into the DCU for now. For now I’ll stick with my original guesses, as that’s all they are.

    They made a Bat-Pod as a ridiculously hard to find exclusive that immediately translated into a ridiculously expensive on the secondary market set. I’ll go all in on a two way split for a 1966 Batmobile or a Jokermobile.

    Marvel Superheroes 2021 - Rumors & Discussion

    Stands to reason, we got variations of a JL line up in the DC series. Going by your suggested roster on IG, I take it there will 12 in the set?

    Or the rarest of occasions where they provide a minifigure with a limb detached for the Arm-Fall-Off Guy analogue. Seriously anything other than just Batman.

    Now everyone has finished arguing about film ratings and content, can someone clarify what is due when?

    It’s the posing piece from the DC CMF recoloured, that was its debut.
