  1. I think you must be looking at incorrect photograph. https://www.brothers-brick.com/2020/07/01/lego-art-revealed-as-mosaics-of-the-beatles-marilyn-monroe-star-wars-sith-and-iron-man-news/lego-art-31200-star-wars-the-sith-t9avn-3/

    As far as I am concerned, the more the better. Lots of projects reaching 10k is a sign of a thriving program and it is better for the consumer to have those in charge have too many projects to pick from from rather than too few.

    Bionicle, being a Lego nostalgia product, would attract zero new customers to Lego. People that would have loved the bionicle set will likely just put the money they would have spent on that set into some other Lego set that appeals to them The three selected submissions all share the fact that they have sizable fan bases that potentially currently have no or little interest in Lego; thus drawing new customers and money into the hobby.

    I am old enough to be quite experienced with typewriters. The model which was approved no longer has motors either. The question that you asked was what the crank on the right side of the model is for. The answer is that it moves the type bars and carriage as shown in the video link which I will attach again. The designer initially motorized those functions and then switched them over to a manual crank mechanism. The model isn't meant to be a one to one creation of a functioning typewriter; rather it is meant to be a representation of one. https://www.flickr.com/photos/138645704@N05/48136302128/

    I think everybody understands that there will almost always be significant differences between Lego items and the real world objects that they are modeling. That said, the typewriter instantly is an impressive representation of a real world item even if it is not absolutely photorealistic. Having every single key would quickly make the thing unnecessarily unwieldy and piece intensive. Of the three sets announced, the designers give the impression that they are most excited about what they can accomplish with it.

    Sam discusses this in broad terms beginning at a minute fifteen in the announcement video. It is a much more involved process than it would initially seem.

    Tom Hanks is definitely ecstatic but I'm severely disappointed that Planet Express ship didn't make it. I will still likely purchase one of each of the sets announced today: typewriter will display nicely with piano, Seinfeld will display nicely with Friends set and I generally can't get enough of the big structure builds. I am surprised Seinfeld doesn't seem to be well known in Europe. In the US, it was a hugely influential sitcom and is, generally speaking, held in higher critical regard than Friends.

    There is only one that I can barely live without: Futurama Planet Express delivery ship.

    Harry Potter 2020 - Rumors & Discussion

    Always said "Coming soon" on the Harry Potter theme main page but very recently changed from "August 1st" on individual set listing pages to "Coming soon" as well. Hopefully that means sooner than August 1 rather than a push back after August 1 due to supply concerns.
