    Minecraft 2019 - Rumours, Speculation and Discussion

    I'm surprised to learn that the Taiga set is the smallest of the wave. I'm expecting something like The Melon Farm and The Nether Fight based on the description -- basically a tiny square of terrain and the four figs/mobs. The Panda Nursery sounds like a missed opportunity by only including one panda considering there are multiple expressions for the pandas as well as baby pandas. Can't wait to see some pictures though!

    [MOC] EVA Unit 02 & Tokyo-3

    I dunno if there just aren't many Evangelion fans on here or what, but this deserves a ton of love! I played with the action figures a lot as a kid, so this brings me way back. Very accurate to the source material and just an excellent model all around, and your microscale work is superb!

    Haha I thought the same thing when I read his post, it's such a crazy coincidence. Also, only six sets are named but there are seven slots for this wave according to Brickset, numbers 21156 through 21162. Maybe it's just a polybag, but I wouldn't mind another D2C set personally.
  4. That MOC is breathtaking in its entirety. I love the interior and all the details, thanks for sharing the original post! I saw the post when it was less than 10 minutes old and no one had commented yet, so I thought I was on the cutting edge. But after commenting on here I went back to the post, only to see it debunked. I was intoxicated by the thought of being the first one to break the news on these forums as I'm usually the last to find out about leaks haha Also, Brikkyy13, is MILF really what folks call the Millennium Falcon for short?? LMAO!
  5. Thanks for the clarification. I had just edited my initial post when I got your reply.
  6. Unless it's a hoax, the first pic of the box has surfaced on instagram. Looks like an impressive model, but the figures included are scant.. for $700 I wanted a lineup like the Death Star. What does everyone think? EDIT: Another insta user has since come forward to declare the box a fake. Sorry for the false alarm, just got off work and was juiced to be the messenger.. guess we'll all have to wait until the actual release date, but it's so soon now that I'm not bothered.

    Rotting Leviathan

    What an awesome concept and superb execution thereof! This build really speaks to me, I just had to show some love. Great work!
  8. There's way too much to comment on, so all I'm gonna say is gapless paneling on the Millennium Falcon

    The Wool Farm is apparently available in the US but the other two sets from the wave are no where to be found.

    Hmmm.. I came here with the same concerns as everyone else, and it looks like we'll just have to wait and see. As long as we get a Roadhog and/or Junkrat before the license ends, I'll be happy.

    Good point, Lego-Freak! On further inspection, I'm starting to appreciate the parrot statue and may opt for that build, also liking the inclusion of random blocks of dyed wool. I guess I just had high hopes since I really like the Chicken Coop model and feel like that chicken statue was perfect, not to mention it had a cool play function built in. It doesn't seem like the sheep statue does much, but we haven't seen the back of the box yet either. Also, it's nice to get new wood and fence types in this wave, with birch in the Wool Farm and either spruce or dark oak in the Creeper Mine.

    The set picture leaks are everywhere now, should be very easy to find. Here are my thoughts: 21153 - Really? It's like they didn't even try with that sheep statue. It looks terrible to me, but since the set will likely go on sale immediately and has a new sheep plus bricks for the stock pile, I'll be getting this one for sure. I believe this is the first time we're getting a baby sheep in Lego form as well. 21154 - It's just a mashup/ rehash of past nether sets, but with some nice additions. The new blaze design is an improvement in my eyes and I'm thrilled to get two. I also appreciate the inclusion of more of the new pixelated fire pieces. I really like the falling gravel mechanism, but the overall execution is a bit unsightly. It's also a missed opportunity to get a micro blaze and blaze spawner block, but the substitution for a play feature is fair and I get why it was done for this medium-size set. 21155 - I'm 50/50 on this one. The build looks really cool, but it's entirely too grey for being in a mesa biome. New figure skin but the same old Steve; new husk but only one. The play features look like great fun for kids, but the main one is really silly (mine for gold then carry it way up to the top of your statue, where it will go down a waterfall to land inside a chest at the level at which you mined it ) Does this mean we're getting a hopper though? I could go back and forth on this one for a while. Overall I'm a bit disappointed with this wave, but I hope they sell well enough for Lego to continue the license. There's so much potential. What do you guys think?

    Hmm interesting. I both like and dislike the inclusion of statues because it gives Lego the ability to keep releasing sets similar to past sets but with one notable twist. Repetitive but effective, and I'm sure kids like the statues. However, I think there is still plenty of potential for new sets that haven't been done at all in the theme, especially now with all the updates to villages. It makes me feel less bad about missing out on the original The Village set, now that they've changed so much in game. I'm still hoping for a Woodland Mansion and End City in the future though! Plus I'd love to see a Lego rendition of that large beast from the newly implemented raids, as well as the Phantom mob.

    I suppose summer leaks are still surfacing, but I'm seeing nothing from the Minecraft theme. I hope it continues, even in small waves.
