    MOC: Wolverine vs The Sentinels

    Wow this looks great. Now I really want a UCS style Sentinel set.

    LEGO Nexo Knights 2018

    That's pretty sweet actually. Can't say I'll be picking up the set since well, Overwatch does nothing for me, but it's still neat so see Nexo Knights specific pieces used in other themes.

    In fairness you could probably get away with using these legs from one of the Samurai X figures, or these legs from the Ultra Agents figures. They both seem to flow pretty closely with Robin's torso print and they've even highlights in the right colors.

    Yeah, I'll second you there. I feel like she could have replaced Jestro in Axl's Rolling Arsenal, or been packaged in with the Tech Wizard Showdown.

    So now that I've gotten my hands on a General Magmar figure, I can start messing around with his amazing face guard piece. I've tried combining it with the gargoyle head pieces as well as the virus vampire helmets and neither seem to be compatible. Does anybody know any headgears that are compatible?

    Harry Potter 2018 - Rumors & Discussion

    The sets have finally started appearing in stores in my area as of yesterday. I went to my local mastermind to pick up the Great Hall and Womping Willow and they were already running out. Thankfully one of the guys who runs the place knows I'm a huge Harry Potter fan and was nice enough to keep one of each behind the counter for me. I haven't had a chance to go through the CMF line just yet, but just glancing at them most of the figures aren't doing it for me. Most of them don't really fit into the Hogwarts display that I now have so I'll likely only be feeling out teachers and students that didn't already come in sets.

    That would actually be a pretty cool figure to have on its own. Definitely comes very close to being a physical Monstrox as well.

    LEGO Ninjago 2018

    That's fair, either way the cobbled-together feel that the villain sets have this year is very appealing imo. That alone makes them far more intriguing to me as a consumer than the last few waves were.

    LEGO Ninjago 2018

    Since it hasn't been posted just yet, Jang's started reviewing this new wave of sets: Honestly I've gotta say I'm pretty underwhelmed by this dragon. It just feels like a worse version of the Green Dragon Mech from the movie sets. I think its the neck and head that really kill it for me, they just don't seem to match the flow of the rest of the build. I do love how the spider looking guy is called Daddy No Legs though. Side note I'm absolutely loving the mad-max feel that this season's villains have. They're aesthetically similar enough to the sky-pirates' steampunk-esque (or is it more deisel-punk this season?) vehicles that I'll likely pick up at least a few of their sets.

    There's been quite a lot of discussion about this since the theme was cancelled. The general consensus was that there may have been a planned smaller final wave for year 3 with a vehicle for Macy and a big set for the villains. Of course we don't really know for sure but I doubt that they would have given us so many new theme specific molds for this year if there hadn't at least been plans for a second wave in 2018. Of course, we'll probably never know for sure, but the new molds have been appreciated regardless.

    I don't watch the show but I'd imagine that the physical context is that the year 3 battle suit print is the only version of Clay that we've gotten in set form and it would be a waste for them to print a new torso and legs just for the magazine. That weapon though is... umm... I mean, I guess you could flip it around and it would be a pretty cool banner for one of his bots to run around with?

    This. The theme had so many great parts but it was a pain to get them from sets since all of the sets containing those parts in certain colours were really garish to look at.

    New Pirate Theme?

    Yes that, although there's certainly quite a few examples of space pirates in popular culture. The people over at TLG are pretty imaginative though, so I would think that they'd have their own lego-esque feel to space pirates even if it did take some inspiration from Kaizoku Sentai Gokaiger, in the same way that Nexo Knights took some very clear inspirations from 40k without actually feeling like a 40k ripoff.

    New Pirate Theme?

    I'm in the boat (heh) with people who wouldn't really mind a new pirates theme with some form of technological elements to it. Something like steampunk or even space pirates has the potential to be pretty fantastic provided it's handled correctly. Steampunk pirates seems like the obvious choice but my understanding is that steampunk doesn't really test well with kids, so maybe some kind of space pirates theme along the lines of that one season of the Japanese version of Power Rangers would be cool? I dunno, I love traditional pirates but there's been a lot of Lego doing mash-up themes lately, and I wouldn't be overly surprised (or that upset, assuming its well done) if pirates was next.

    So around a week back I got my hands on General Magmar's Siege Machine of Doom at a pretty hefty discount. It's my only year 1 NK set and I've gotta say its fantastic. Its so unique and has so much personality to it in the same way that The Three Brothers does, and looking back on the entire line the villain sets as a whole are all pretty great. Here's hoping that the next big bang theme has minifigs and sets that are as awesome as NK's villains did.
