    Harry Potter 2018 - Rumors & Discussion

    I went to another Barnes and Noble and Target, and bought 9 a total of new CMF bags between those two places. Unfortunately, Target put a limit of 5 bags per customer on the CMF wave. According to an employee, they had too much trouble keeping them in stock due to numerous people buying them in large quantities, and in one case, buying an entire box. Good to hear the series is selling so well, though inconvenient for me! I ended up with Ron Weasley, Neville Longbottom, Cho Chang, Dobby, Mad-Eye Moody, Invisibility Cloak Harry, Albus Dumbledore, Tina Goldstein, and Jacob Kowalski. Just 5 more and I'll have a complete set!

    Harry Potter 2018 - Rumors & Discussion

    Top 5 for me is: 5. Luna Lovegood (An overall great update on the character) 4. Professor Trelawney (MUCH better looking and easier to find than the previous one) 3. Michael Gambon Dumbledore (The new sloped robe piece, hat/hair combo, and beard piece all make this much better looking then the previous version) 2. Nearly Headless Nick (An amazing first take on a previously unmade character) 1. Mad-Eye Moody (Already a great update, but the alternate face and hairpiece are an excellent touch that make the figure even better) Honorable Mentions: Richard Harris Dumbledore, Hagrid, Young Hermione, Remus Lupin, and Invisibility Cloak Harry I also went to Barnes and Noble earlier and got a mini Hogwarts Express. Definitely a fun little build for what it is. While I was there, I bought the last two CMF bags they had left and got Hermione (with Crookshanks), and Professor Flitwick.

    Harry Potter 2018 - Rumors & Discussion

    I purchased a total of 6 CMF bags today. I found Percival Graves in the third to last bag in the left row of the box. I also got Year 3 Harry Potter, Luna Lovegood, Cedric Diggory, Quidditch Draco Malfoy, and Dean Thomas.

    The LEGO Batman Movie Set/CMF Rumors & Discussion

    The Batwing is one my my favorite sets from the line, personally. It works as both an impressive display piece and a very fun set to play around with. The parts selection is excellent. The build is great and is full of details that really add to the overall look of the vehicle. The only gripe I have with the set has is the rather sub-par minifigure selection for the pricepoint, but that's not a huge issue. At 50% off, I would definitely recommend getting it while you have the chance!

    The Lego Movie 2 - The Second Part 2019 Set Discussion

    The sets all look great! The quality of the builds look well above average and look accurate to what was shown in the trailer. I question if $70 for the Sweet Mayhem's ship is accurate though. That seems like a somewhat high price considering the build size and small selection of minifigures. It still looks like an excellent set either way. I can't wait to see what else is in store for this theme!

    Harry Potter 2018 - Rumors & Discussion

    Oof, it looks like Graves is going to be a pain to find. Getting a complete CMF set just got that much trickier, it seems.

    Harry Potter 2018 - Rumors & Discussion

    My local Target finally got the new sets in stock, so I just bought the Aragog's Lair set, and it is definitely fun to play around with. The Aragog build is great, the tree build is decent, Harry and Ron look very accurate, and getting 5 spiders in such a small set is a very nice surprise. The only other thing I wish LEGO would've included in this set is Fang, but otherwise I'm very satisfied with this as my first Harry Potter set in 7 years. I certainly wouldn't mind seeing more Harry Potter sets released at this price point if they do more waves.

    What was the last movie you watched?

    I got to see Incredibles 2. It certainly did not disappoint!

    Harry Potter 2018 - Rumors & Discussion

    Hmm, Target.com does list them as being in stock at that location. I'll have to check next time I go out there. Well, looks like I have a review to watch!

    Harry Potter 2018 - Rumors & Discussion

    I did ask, but the employee I approached claimed there was none available. This wouldn't be the first time this particular Target suffered a delay in stocking new LEGO sets, though I was hoping there wouldn't be an issue this time.

    Harry Potter 2018 - Rumors & Discussion

    I just went to my local Target, and found absolutely nothing! Not a single sign of any HP sets, not even empty spots on the shelves Maybe I'll have better luck next time...

    Wow! The CMF lineup is far more impressive than I was expecting! I can't wait for these to hit shelves

    Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom. I quite enjoyed it.

    The Lego Movie 2 - The Second Part 2019 Set Discussion

    Assuming that the sets follow the pattern of the previous three movie lines, I'm predicting that there will be between 18-23 sets released across three waves, a D2C set, and a CMF series. I would be surprised if LEGO deviated from that pattern significantly at this point. It definitely looks like there will be a nice variety of characters and vehicles to include in sets and a CMF series just based off the teaser trailer alone. Interestingly, I also just noticed that the two "cyborgs" that appeared in the trailer are recolors of TLBM Mr. Freeze's Mech with different weapons and pilots.

    I'm quite impressed with the suitcase, and all the beasts included. Definitely better than I was expecting!

    I just saw Deadpool 2 as well. I definitely enjoyed it, and felt that it lived up to my expectations.

    Harry Potter 2018 - Rumors & Discussion

    I just found the Dementor on Instagram. It uses the Specter tail, which is neat. Hopefully it's from the CMF series.

    What was the last movie you watched?

    I saw Avengers: Infinity War in IMAX. I thought it was totally awesome! I wasn't sure how so many characters and plot points could be put into one movie without coming across as rushed, but I thought it was handled really well! Kudos to the Russo Brothers!

    LEGO Ninjago 2018

    The Ninjago City Docks set looks great, though I'm rather disappointed that there's no sign of the Fuchsia Ninja or the Narwhal Soldier.

    Unikitty! 2018 - Rumors and Discussion

    Heh, true. Trying to tell the figures in this series apart through the bags will certainly be more of a pain than with the previous few CMF lines, though.

    Unikitty! 2018 - Rumors and Discussion

    Hmm, the sets and figures look nice, but how is anyone supposed to tell apart those blindbag figures?

    DC Superheroes 2018 - Set Discussion

    Batwoman, OMAC, Ace, and the Talons will all be nice minifigures to have. Grundy would be an excellent and long overdue choice to include in a set. I just hope that LEGO would make him a bigfig. Copperhead would also be a great choice, though I wonder which version would be most likely for LEGO to make.
