    LEGO City 2020 - Rumors, Speculation, and Discussion

    Well I certainly would like to be proven wrong!

    He is right though. I think it is unlikely that Lego will do "yet another school" so shortly after the HS one. I hope we get one sooner rather than later, I just doubt it.
  3. Simple and easy, I quite like it.

    Harry Potter 2020 - Rumors & discussion

    Yeah, I'm curious about that books minifig since we heard about it some weeks ago. I quite like the "Old Harry" idea, since I also hope Lego never wastes a set on that one silly scene.

    Harry Potter 2020 - Rumors & discussion

    I think you missed the point. It is not about exploring more details when watching a movie again, it is about a movie not making sense the first time you see it. This would be a different discussion for movies tackling deep topics - but the HP/FB movies are entertainment. Entertainment should be understood the first time you experience it, not something you need to repeat before it even makes sense to you. Again, I have no issue whatsoever with movies that have many layers of details, which require multiple watching to appreciate them all in depth. To me, the LotR movies do this brilliantly, but the HP ones certainly try their best too. CoG definitely fails as a movie when it can not provide a coherent experience because it tries to ram too much stuff at once down your throat. I have other problems with the FB movies, but this is really not the place for that discussion... And to get back on topic: I have no doubt we will get HP sets for many years to come, the movies provide enough material for it.

    Then it is a bad film. You can of course still like it - there is no point in discussing different tastes - but if I have to watch a movie multiple times because it has too much stuff in it to make sense with one viewing, it is objectively bad.
  7. I just want to chime in with some general praise for this whole thing! It is great to see how much activity and enthusiasm this has sparked already, and I feel like we are just scratching the surface for now. Many thanks to all who help making this possible, most of all to @Ayrlego for kicking it off and keeping it on track.

    That's what you get for living in upside-down land.

    LEGO Hidden Side 2020

    The German page Promobricks has detailed set descriptions, part counts and prices. I assume these details will show up in English in no time. For the set names, parts and prices: If recent sets are the norm, you can convert the prices 1:1 to $ US.

    Account Summary

    Thanks for the quick response. A better tracking of troops was sorely needed, so this is excellent news. I also noted that - for the first time ever it seems - troop upkeep is done in the main spreadsheet? Good to see that implemented as well!

    The HP movies have enough to offer to support a Lego line for decades to come. Just look at what they just made in terms of sets for PoA and GoF alone (and what they did not - so much left out!). A similar treatment for the three later movies, plus all the stuff they have yet to do in the "current style" for the first four... that's not done before 2024. Thinking conservative here. Then there is always the option of remakes or D2C "luxury sets" on top of all that. In short: Lego HP has enough to work with for years and years. The actually important question is whether it sells for years and years...

    The new Account Summary is up, thanks a lot for that! However... my troops are down from 140 to 120, and I don't remember disbanding or losing any.

    LEGO Hidden Side 2020

    I'd love to hear if we get some more characters than just more Jack and Parker. Same for brickbuilt or minifig ghosts.

    It's the heavens weeping, for your cursed criminal of a character runs free once more! P.S.: And yeah, while the british weather is not quite as bad as its reputation, rain is quite frequent...
