    LEGO Ninjago 2021

    Wow, surprised to see these this afternoon! Nobody asked, but here's my take on each of the new sets: 71753 (Fire Dragon): This looks like a solid dragon, although nothing super innovative here. I like the wing design. Shame that the minifigures are slightly disappointing, but I suppose that was expected. 71749 (4+ Bounty): Not much to say here, I'll definitely skip this one. Odd that they're sticking with Legacy 1 suits for the ninja here, would have been a good opportunity to get some more Legacy 3 suits. 71739 (USR): I agree with a lot of what's been said already that the squat appearance is a little shocking, but after getting over the initial differences it actually looks like a decent model. Most exciting here for me is the fact that the two villain minifigures have a good chance of being new Serpentine, seeing as they are solid white in the prelims and existing figures tend to be shown in full. Some signs point to them being Constrictai, including the trans-orange fang blade and catapult similar to that in the OG Samurai X Mech. However, they also don't seem to have short legs, so they really could be anything. As long as they aren't the same 3 snakes we've been getting for the last few years, I'll be happy. 71734 (4+ Blade Cycle): Nothing to say here, other than nice to see Rattla pop up again. 71756 (Bounty): I'll admit that I was a little skeptical of the Hydro-Bounty when the name first leaked, but I think they've done a good job here. The white color scheme is striking (although the lack of red is a little upsetting). I am definitely a fan of the mini subs dispersed throughout the sets, and with 6 of them I'm hopeful we'll see one for each ninja. The villain chariot is very cool and the return of the stingray element is a welcome sight! 71755 (Temple): This is definitely my favorite set of the wave so far. The giant snake/eel/monster looks really cool, and I like how spread out and open the temple is. I think a lot of people are disappointed in getting snake villains again, but I think it's nice that we now have matching fire and water snake tribes, right down to the giant snake creature. I'm intrigued by the figure floating in the middle with all the water effects... I wonder if it's going to be some sort of powered-up Nya? Because that would be amazing. 71754 (Water dragon): I'm just really happy we're finally getting a water dragon. I like the idea someone mentioned about Nya transforming into the dragon. It would certainly help differentiate this dragon from all the previous ones, story-wise, and might even be able to tie into the Akita lore from S11. I'm not yet sold on the wings, but I look forward to seeing this set from other angles. 71752 (Jay's car): Another obligatory ninja vehicle. I might pick this up, depending on price and the included minifigures. Could end up being a cheap army builder. 71750 (Lloyd's mech): The obligatory ninja mech. It's pretty small and doesn't seem to include anything noteworthy. I would have preferred these smallest two sets to feature villain vehicles, something that has been lacking recently, really since the Hunted subtheme all the way back in 2018. Overall, I'm impressed with these sets, especially the larger S14/15 ones. Just how this subtheme compares to other recent ones will likely depend on the quality/distribution of the minifigures (please please please include all 6 ninja). For now, I'm very happy with what we're getting, and I'm excited to see the final products!

    I wonder if there’s any chance the fire dragon is Kai’s elemental dragon from S4/5/6 rather than Flame from the pilots. Although it was never released as a set, it would give them a chance to release Legacy 3 Kai. Alternatively, if it is based on the 2011 design, then I’ll be disappointed it doesn’t include the whole Fire Temple. That was arguably the most iconic set from 2011 and would be an excellent capstone to the 10 year anniversary.

    Harry Potter 2021 - Rumors & Discussion

    Why isn’t anyone talking about the most obvious set: The Battle of the Seven Potters Battle Pack, featuring seven identical Harrys and one dead Hedwig. Or, perhaps even more frustrating, seven Harrys wearing the same outfit but each featuring a unique torso with slightly different creases.

    Sad, hope they bring those back soon. I wonder if the last few haven’t sold as well.

    Have there been any rumors about an accessory pack to go with the winter sets? For a short stretch we were getting one with every wave, but we never got one for last summer. I’d hope to see something in March with at least one exclusive character.

    I ordered Thursday morning in the US and just got a shipping confirmation today. That was a pretty quick turnaround!

    In recent years we haven’t gotten gimmick sets for all 6 ninja. It’s a bit of a sore point with some fans, especially for popular ones like the arcade pods. It’s unlikely we’ll see Epic Battle sets for Lloyd or Nya. (An even bigger issue is that Nya almost never gets these variants. She only ever features where all 5 other ninja do. Maybe this summer will fix that?)

    Agree with this. It looks like a great continuation of the other two NC sets. Will it be as great as the original? Hard to say with the low quality images, but it certainly is not substantially worse.

    The minifigures are hard to make out but I have a feeling they won’t be anything special. Some new casual ninja variants and gold Wu look to be the most promising. A few people have mentioned a new Ronin, which would be nice. I’m still hoping for maybe Borg, PIXAL, Antonia, or Dr. Julien.

    I haven’t seen it mentioned yet but based on the new images on S@H, it looks like all 3 ghost minifigures have the same head, which is unfortunate. On the bright side, we were correct that the overlord has a new head. I wonder why they decided to change it.

    I think brick built dragon heads work well for the larger dragons where they’re given more pieces for greater detail. The smaller dragons need more creative solutions, which sometimes work but other times fall short. So at least for some smaller dragons, I can support the moulded heads.

    The only leaks of golden Nya and Zane I’ve seen have been suspiciously blurry. Of course, it’s totally possible that they’re real, but I have my doubts. Considering how long ago the alleged leaks surfaced, I would have expected clearer pictures to come up by now.

    For a lot of Legacy decisions that I’m not a fan of, I can chalk it up to not being in the target demographic. For example, of course I don’t care very much about the new Kai Fighter. It wasn’t produced for people who had the original, it’s to give kids who are newer to the show a chance to get some of the cool older vehicles. But what I don’t understand are some of these decisions with characters. If I were a kid, I’d definitely want to have a chance to get Chen or Skales or Samukai. The coolest part of the theme that young collectors would be missing are the villains, not the ninja.

    LEGO Ninjago 2020

    Have to agree with others, the dragon is indeed underwhelming. I’ll probably still buy it, depending on how it looks once we see higher resolution images. I do hope it sells well and indicates further demand for legacy villain sets and legacy sets not based on previous sets.

    Where were these confirmed?
