    LEGO Hidden Side 2020

    Yeah, I even posted a review of it on my YouTube channel *cough*shameless self promotion*cough*. Long story short, I really really like it. Like Fenghuang0296 said, there's lots of space on the lower levels, some of it a bit under-utilised. In contrast, my biggest complaint, is the top floor is too crowded. Especially when the floor space is so shallow. despite that though, it is an excellent set. Definitely one of my favourite in the theme so far.

    Soft Sail Material

    I'm looking to replace the paper sails on my Black Pearl with some custom ones. Don't worry, I'm not binning the originals! I'm planning on storing them away safely. They're not the most durable and I don't want them deteriorating whilst the set is on display. So I want to make templates of them and then make some out of a material like the one LEGO uses for the soft, spongy capes. Any suggestions on what material would be suitable? Been looking to try and find the name of the material LEGO uses for the softer capes but no luck so far!

    I agree, the lack of physical big ghosts is one of the things holding this theme back I feel. Still can't believe we never even got a minifig of Lady E in the end...

    Jurassic World 2020 - Rumors & Discussion

    Definitely gonna be getting the Indominus Rex vs. Ankylosaurus set. The missus got the original 2015 Indominus, but I think this one looks sooooo much better. The Ankylosaurus looks pretty awesome as well and I remember she was the first one to put up any kind of fight against Indominus in the film. The main build looks good as well. Still, it's interesting that this is almost a remake of a previous JW set and is based on the first film. Everything else is based on the cartoon, right?

    THE PIRATE BAY IS GOING TO BE AN OFFICIAL LEGO SET!!!!

    I think the set looks great! But my first reaction was that it looks like more of a shipwreck whereas the original submission looked like a pirate port that had cannibalised bits of ships into the structures. Then I saw that you can actually turn this into the complete ship and it kinda validated my original impression. I think this looks like a brilliant set and I love the tributes to the old Pirate theme in the packaging design, minifigures and the way that when in the ship configuration this is basically a remake of the classic Black Seas Barracuda. BUT it's so far removed from the original submission this almost feels like a set they were already planning and just slapped the LEGO Ideas banner on when The Pirate Bay passed 10,000 supporters. The original submission felt like a little pirate town that different ships would visit, whereas this feels like the pirates have just been shipwrecked and are making the best of the situation.

    Loving the look of the new Hidden Side minifigures. Especially Vaughn Jackson. The character looks epic, but could also use those prints for some customer Western characters.

    LEGO Hidden Side 2020

    Just watched the latest episode! That Ghost car looks like it would make a brilliant set! and I'm excited by the introduction of the new Ghost-hunter ghost character. He definitely does have a Monster Fighters feel to him. I might be over-reaching here, but could Rami be a nod to Sam Raimi, director of The Evil Dead? The names aren't exactly the same, but it's what I instantly thought of when I read it. Considering all the speculation of this theme getting cancelled, it doesn't feel like this is winding down anytime soon!

    Did another World Tour idea video if anyone fancies a watch and a giggle!

    No Doctor Fate in the Poll options? Nooooooo!

    LEGO Hidden Side 2020

    *loud sigh* I get that they're giving kids the core characters outside the sets and that's nice and all but this is disappointing. Hopefully as she's the last one of the main cast we can look forward to some more unique minifigures. If they are insistent on only giving us wave 1 minifigures, at least make it something interesting like the train driver ghost or the chef from the Shrimp Shack ( I didn't get those two sets so would actually welcome the figures from them ).

    LEGO Hidden Side 2020

    Interesting that different countries are getting different minifigures. Besides the pizza delivery guy, which was a mash up of different minifigure pieces, all we've had so far have been the core characters from Wave 1.

    Boo-yah! This is fantastic news!

    Harry Potter 2020 - Rumors & Discussion

    Series 10, 17 and 18 all had 17 minifigures. Seeing as Series 20 is another milestone series like Series 10, I would have expected more than 16.

    Harry Potter 2020 - Rumors & Discussion

    Interesting that they've dialled back both the DC and now HP minifigure series to 16. I wonder what the reasoning behind the scenes is for this and if Series 20 will also follow suit?

    Harry Potter 2020 - Rumors & Discussion

    Yeah, but I see it as kinda in the same vein as them producing a set based on Anakin vs Obi-Wan in RotS, or Vader vs Luke vs Emperor in RotJ.

    Harry Potter 2020 - Rumors & Discussion

    Little disappointed that the Observation Tower isn't being based on Dumbledore's death scene, judging by the minifigure selection anyway.

    Vote for next UCS at Lego ideas

    Dang! I thought voting was open until the 31st, so I missed out! My vote would have been for the Republic Gunship. Which confuses me because I'm a massive Empire fan and love that scene where Luke get's his robotic hand... but yeah i just think the Gunship would make for a better LEGO UCS set.

    DC Superheroes 2020 - Rumors & Discussion

    Yep, I said as much in my video. It would be a complete no-brainer. I loved finding the Blaze Comics store in LEGO DC Super Villains and seeing all the LEGO'fied comic covers. Just need some more real life printed tiles now!

    DC Superheroes 2020 - Rumors & Discussion

    Thanks @J4ck! Glad you like the idea. I do agree with @Guyon2002 though. This price increase seems to be unjustified. Yeah, we have those new pieces that allow the minifigures to be posed differently. But that doesn't maych the price increase and the minifigures themselves are lacking in terms of development compared to previous series'. I don't think I've ever seen a series that reused so many existing pieces and prints before!

    Would love to know what people think of this idea. I think that it really could have improved the DC minifigures series!

    Great review! Love all the photos! Superb quality. I'm a massive fan of this set. Love all the different references. And the minifigure selection is great!

    Hidden Side Hopes/Wishlist

    The artist that draws the Hidden Side comic commented on my latest review video and said that he designed the latest villain Colonel Vendette himself based on the writer's description. Which is pretty awesome! But I'm also kinda sad as it lessens the chance that we'll be getting a big-fig of the character in an upcoming set.

    Baby Triceratops? Like the Duplo one from before? Or actual LEGO system style?

    DC Superheroes 2020 - Rumors & Discussion

    I really hope it's not another plane but let's face it, it's gonna be! Do we think they'll even commit to it being invisible by using all trans pieces? Or that it's gonna have a coloured technic frame, similar to the "clear" bit between the twin engines of Anakin's podracer?
  25. I hope it's okay to share this here. I just bought and reviewed DemonHunter Bricks' Luke's Lightsaber (Return of the Jedi) LEGO replica set. It costs £49.99 in the UK from their site with free postage. They email you a pdf file of the instructions and then ship you the parts by post. Would love to know if any other LEGO Star Wars fans on here have bought any of their sets. I've also bought Han's Blaster (DL-44) and will be reviewing that soon in a separate video.
