  1. Looking back at catalogues between '83 and '88 (when I was a child enchanted by Lego) there was a simplicity to the sets that included a much higher proportion of low to medium priced items, compared to more expensive sets, than are available now. There were suggestions for alternative builds. There were few stickers that restrict the utility and re-use of bricks. In the current era, across a vast range of themes Lego has failed to deliver pocket money affordability (CMFs have limited playability) for today's children and they need to look at having proportionately more sets in the €10 to €20 bracket. I think that more useful classic and creator sets need to be released (we don't need 42 colours in each set) and a limit on the number of licensed themes to help keep price per part costs down. There will always be bigger sets for special occasions and always room for AFOL-targeted mega sets but the bigger picture needs to be smaller.
  2. My Hopes for LEGO Batman Movie Minifigure series 2

    I think maybe that's what @Catanas was hinting. Very hard to see what else will now make up the 20 with few villains left, no Phantom Zone villains, and unused preliminary sketch villains excluded. Please let it not be more Super Friends.
  3. My Hopes for LEGO Batman Movie Minifigure series 2

    I think they will go for the wackiest remaining unreleased batsuits for the CMF (I'm still amazed that 3 of the best ones are in the Bricktober set), most likely we'll get 5 like last time so I'm hoping for the following 1. El Murcielago 2. St Batricks 3. The Batriot 4. Mayor-disguise Batman 5. Silent but Deadly I think the first 3 are highly likely but I wouldn't be surprised if we got Krampus Bat, Racer Batman (Bat-Hurst 1000), Mer-bat or SWAT Batman.
  4. The LEGO Batman Movie Set/CMF Rumors & Discussion

    Wow, if these are leftovers from the CMF series 2 we have reasons to be optimistic!
  5. My Hopes for LEGO Batman Movie Minifigure series 2

    It's looking like we may get way fewer villains in CMF series 2 than in the first series (11 rogues) Correct me if I'm wrong but those that have been confirmed are: 1. Clock King 2. Hugo Strange 3. Killer Moth 4. Zod 5. Possibly "tropical" Joker hopefully we get Dr Phosphorus ( would be great with Ghost rider moulded flaming hairpiece) but any ideas who else could make up the numbers if no Phantom Zone villains? Another Harley variant? Other unreleased Arkham variants eg Scarecrow? Non-licensed Phantom Zone folk such as Swamp creature? For team Batman I hope we get 60s suit Alfred, trenchcoat Barbara or Soccer Mom, and winged avenger Robin.
  6. The LEGO Batman Movie Set/CMF Rumors & Discussion

    Excuse my ignorance but who are the characters above and below King Tut? I don't recall them in the movie so I guess they have a slim chance of making it to CMFs

    Ok apologies but with conflicting messages and talk of placeholders it s sometimes hard to keep track.

    Has this person also confirmed Crazy Quilt for the Harley Quinn set?
  9. The LEGO Batman Movie Set/CMF Rumors & Discussion

    So, considering there are few other remaining villains (apart from Dr Phosphorus which could be a great CMF) we can reasonably expect a Robin, Batgirl, Alfred variant, possibly another JL party figure, and if we are not getting Phantom Zone villains then perhaps we are looking at 6 or 7 batsuits?

    Thanks!! I ordered a Water Strider and Jelly Sub combo for €15 discount and got free Kai dojo pod and the iconic Cave"people" set. Great deal.
  11. My Hopes for LEGO Batman Movie Minifigure series 2

    Well, sounds like the words of of someone who has seen the entire set. Sounds like FaF figures are off the table. Now, I would hardly expect a full reveal but could you confirm a few bits of information? 1. 16 or 20 CMFs? 2. Number of batsuits? 3. Number of minor villains?
  12. I think you may have nailed it with this prediction. A museum or gallery celebrating the history of Lego and perhaps a gala opening party happening on one level seems highly plausible. I think it's more likely than some type of retail store unless it's a modular Lego store.
  13. 2018 City Sets - Rumours and Discussion

    I think you can readily predict that we will get all of those types of sets. Colour scheme for Arctic will probably be orange/blue as before. What I really would like to see is more brick built snow/ice scenery, new animal moulds and an igloo would be great.
  14. 2018 City Sets - Rumours and Discussion

    Wow, thanks for this. An early return to Arctic is a surprise - I hope they have a new angle and it's not just cracking ice blocks for crystals. Maybe Antarctic with penguins/seals/whales?! Any details on special non-theme sets like the minifigure collections or gas station/cargo terminal/bus station sets that we have seen in the last 2 years?

    This is like the Turin Shroud of Lego!. People will be really disappointed when they reveal Lego Friends Ultimate Shopping mall.
