  1. Harry Potter 2018 - Rumors and Discussion

    Just something to keep in mind while discussing 75950 (Aragog kit) - it's $14.99 US and 157 parts. It's not that big, and for what it's worth, the rest of this anonymous fellow's speculation doesn't sound particularly accurate to me.
  2. Aw yeah? Why is that, dude? Lmao, Denny's is probably way more trustworthy, because it's official. :P Anyways, she's female, as confirmed by a number of official product descriptions. (including some Hasbro products)

    We appreciate the update; lol. Real quick, yup; the image that I posted is a low-res shot of the upcoming product page tile for lego.ocm; Elsa is shown from a rather unassuming angle. She's better the side. :P
  4. Glad to hear that; lmao. You seem really passionate. Most folks on EB don't like them too much, no, but that certainly isn't necessarily representative of the AFOL majority, especially considering the nature of the site's structure. :P Irrespective of that, it's fair to say that most folks are a little disparaging around SWC as a vehicle for SW in general - even folks who love CCBS aren't too big on SW constraction, and I can get behind that. believe me, I want constraction out of SW as well, but I try to be a little careful about how I say it. Since TLG has been making CCBS sets for years outside of SW, and since it's blatantly clear with the last couple of waves that there's been no decline in the quality or quantity of SW system, nah, I doubt it'll effect any changes. Heck, if anything, TLG has been setting aside more in the way of budget and manpower behind SW as a whole. After all, there have been 6-12 constraction sets every six months (at least) since 1999. :)
  5. That's not how it works. And y'know, if you can manage to imagine it, some people do like them. :P
  6. Lego Powerpuff Girls 2018

    Yup; I'm with you on that one. Not able to see much in the designs here; as a rule, they seem to feel as though they're really backed into a corner with licenses such as these. Mojo Jojo is fantastic, though. :) 41287 is $19.99 US and 144 pieces. 41288 is $29.99 US.
  7. Man, that sucks. If you were in the states, it wouldn't be quite as bad, but it still isn't fantastic. Over here, they've stayed steady since the What were the RO figures? I'm looking at $24.99 US for Han or the Range Trooper. Doesn't matter; it's significantly better. :) Sure, the piece counts are moot point with this wave, but the trooper is pretty fantastic as far as MOCing potential is concerned. Maybe? I don't know as much about TLG's profit margins on licensed kits as I do about the setup on their mainline sets, but it's worth noting that the vast majority of the cost that they'll incur while producing a kit is in the marketing, and SW certainly runs very high on that. Realistically, it's costing TLG less than $5 US to crank out a single $25 CCBS kit, but that doesn't take much into account in and of itself.

    Please put any text that you add to my quote in obvious brackets, dude. Most folks who understand TLG's priorities can see that you're blatantly wrong. If there's a chance that TLG can make sets off of KOTOR and the old EU for Star Wars, then there's little that would stop them from implicitly asserting that it would be good for the brand to produce Cursed Child sets; getting the rights in question wouldn't be too challenging, especially in the wake of FB and its sequels. While instantaneous plans for Cursed Child sets are unlikely after the release of the Crimes of Grindelwald sets, there's certainly plenty of precedent for releasing obscure tie-in material on TLG's part - particularly if the parent theme is as well-known and as profitable as HP. After all, it was TLG's top line, with respect to gross sales, in 2003. Essentially, everything on that list is wrong. They do tend to have access to internal info, but a list that includes 41624 Luke Skywalker, 41625 Princess Leia, and 75951 The Crimes of Grindelwald is sloppy. Once they take the March sets off of the list, then I'll give it another look. :P When they added 71043 as Hogwarts three or four months back, they were guessing in the dark. That said, I am still relatively confident in my belief that 71043 is a D2C Hogwarts kit. :)
  9. Harry Potter 2018 - Rumors and Discussion

    Personally, nah, not really... that said, I can certainly understand getting sets to admire how they look on display/posed a certain way. I'm hoping that we get some kits; there's certainly a very solid chance that TLG will adapt them, especially as it's still a visible bit of HP. :) Heck yeah; I liked it. :) Lmao, dude; the description has nothing to do with it; are you serious about this? As per usual, plenty of different people have access to dozens (or hundreds) of unreleased minifigures; Afroman is one of them. :) There's obviously no way that someone could fake that, unless they had a factory setup on hand.
  10. LEGO Ninjago 2018

    Yup, that's the date; as per usual, official images will come in mid-June or so. Here's the breakdown for piece counts/USD prices: 70644 - 92 pieces, $14.99 US 70645 - 92 pieces, $14.99 US 70646 - 92 pieces, $14.99 US 70647 - 92 pieces, $14.99 US 70648 - 92 pieces, $14.99 US - last spinner 70650 - 181 pieces, $19.99 US 70651 - 221 pieces, $19.99 US 70652 - 493 pieces, $39.99 US 70653 - 882 pieces, $69.99 US 70654 - 1179 pieces, $109.99 US 70655 - 1660 pieces, $129.99 US 70657 - 3553 pieces, $ US - Released in June as a D2C kit; based on TLNM. ...And a few other sets are coming as well. I'll say more when I can. :)
  11. Harry Potter 2018 - Rumors and Discussion

  12. I would always assume that it, as well as any other "wish list" kit, is absolutely false and completely unreliable without further confirmation. That said, if SvL says that it's coming, than that does make a difference. I would frankly love to see it; with the release of 75216 and 75230, I would suspect that TLG has plenty more planned for TLJ. :P Aw yeah? Would you happen to have a set number behind that, seeing that it isn't 75215?
  13. Harry Potter 2018 - Rumors and Discussion

    Nope. No, believe me, I certainly get that sorting out the real info can be tough and confusing, but it shouldn't just run off as a "blank check" of sorts to ignore folks who likely do have a basis in fact. I'm not annoyed, because at this point, yeah, I haven't been around for as long as SvL or Cat; however, I don't really think that you needed to add that. Just ask. If you're in doubt, I won't worry about it too much; however, I'd invite you to check out my post history if you so desire. :) Well, I mean, the suitcase is already a $70 set; if I had to guess, TLG is going to really push the whole "create your own beast" deal. Very curious to see how they do the box... maybe like Go Brick Me? USD Prices are as follows - 75950 [Aragog] - 14.99 US 75951 - $19.99 US 75952 - $49.99 US 75953 [] - $69.99 US 75954 [] - $99.99 US So, there are a couple of different embargo dates (set for info/descriptions, not release) that I'm seeing for HP/FB, but one thing that is consistent is that the FB sets are under wraps for a bit longer than the HP sets. (Usually from a couple of weeks or so.) 75956 has the same date as the HP sets; not the general release FB sets that we're aware of at the moment - 75951 & 75952. It's not something that I can conclusively lean on right now, but I'm keeping it in mind. :)
  14. Harry Potter 2018 - Rumors and Discussion

    Yeah, not gonna lie, I have no clue. I am, but I don't see why that has to invalidate anyone else, right? I'm just trying to help; if you'd rather that I don't, I don't have to. :)
  15. Harry Potter 2018 - Rumors and Discussion

    I've had the piece counts for a few months, along with all the rest. And no, I haven't seen any of the August sets yet, as incredible as that would be. :)
