  1. Lego BrickHeadz 2018 - Rumors & Discussion

    Numbers 39 and 40 are Han and Chewie from the Solo movie era.
  2. Harry Potter 2018 - Rumors and Discussion

    Yes I found that odd too; it seems strange that they would make a new piece for this year and then not use it to its full potential. The Basilisk also seems like a strange inclusion to me in a Great Hall set and a odd build; as someone who once owned the original Basilisk, this version looks stumpy and just plain. It seems like a set that tries to cover too many bases so that those who cannot afford the D2C can get a good minifigure range, but at the same time it won't provide much play value as it is too cramped. It's clearly meant to be an add on to the bigger D2C, but it won't leave those who cannot afford to pay £500+ with a very good play/ display piece. The first HP sets were by no means perfect, but they did provide more of a modular experience so that you could build your castle up or just have individual play scenes. That being said I am grateful that the HP line is being revived, it just feels a bit half hearted. Still it's hard to form an opinion without seeing the D2C, but I think it's fair to say that if this wasn't packed with minifigures there would not be much appeal. I think we now know why the set is so generous with its minifigure!
  3. I think that is meant to be their skull. From Wookieepedia: 'Their most striking feature, however, was their large and tapered skull, with an undersized face'.
  4. Yes I wasn't sure, hence the ?. The prelim pic was too blurry to make out. Thanks for the insight :)
  5. The leaked pics show 7; the four shown on Brickset plus a white droid, a red (what I think is a) droid, and a hooded? figure.
  6. Lol :) I think he's okay as a fig, at least it's nice to get another wookie variant. I know Chewie is younger in this movie, but the film itself doesn't seem to really acknowledge this in his look too much, but I suppose they had to make another figure if they were going to accurately depict his double ammo belt and they tried to age him down a bit at the same time.
  7. Hhm, I can't find this. I just saw that he said that there was a set he had never seen before and couldn't identify ...
  8. How do you know this if you don't mind me asking?
  9. I like the sound of that :)
  10. The leaked Lego catalogue lists the Jedi battlepack and Yoda's Hut as coming out in April as originally stated.
  11. LEGO Elves 2018

    The signs certainly don't look good :( Either way though, I don't think the theme gets the credit or marketing it deserves. I was considering just getting the minidolls, bats and animals off ebay and Bricks and Pieces as what with the Harry Potter revival and the sheer number of Star Wars sets, not to mention the rumoured Cloud City and Hogwarts D2Cs, this year is going to be hard on the purse. But now I will probably just have to pick the sets up as this may be the last we see of Elves. Will have to wait for Lego to do double VIPs or something.
  12. LEGO Elves 2018

    The new Elves sets are going to be exclusive to Argos in the UK which is very annoying because Argos rarely offer significant discounts on sets and don't get me started on the box condition. When you would like to get all the sets because they are just so beautiful this means the whole wave is going to cost more or less RRP. Also, I hope this does not suggest a winding down of the Elves theme. I agree with previous comments that the marketing for Elves seems lacklustre and chaotic which really does the sets a disservice.
  13. Lego Licensed Parts available from Bricks & Pieces

    The mynock wings from 75192 UCS Falcon are also now available if any wants to make some of the little critters. :)
  14. Lego Licensed Parts available from Bricks & Pieces

    If a part is available in Pick a Brick then you are meant to order from there anyway I think. At least that's how I read it: 'Double-check that the parts you need aren't available through Pick A Brick. If the bricks are available on Pick A Brick you will need to order them from there.' Going to go check out some of those parts :)
  15. Yes I saw that on Zusammengebaut, but all I could really tell was that they thought it was a good model. So I take it that that confirms the rumour. No mention of the Transport Ship or V Torrent though and I wouldn't say it exactly confirms them because the Throne Room rumour was right as everybody was expecting a throne room set. Perhaps the only thing that makes the leaks more believable is that the right set number was attached to the Throne Room set.
