  1. I really love the Scrooge minifig. Does anyone know if there will be chase figures in this set? I know its a bit early but if a distribution count per box has been rumored yet.

    Lego BrickHeadz 2018 - Rumors & Discussion

    Barnes and Noble in the US have been putting out the Mickey and Minnie brickheadz early. There are 2 per store I picked up a set yesterday. Built Mickey and it was really neat how they designed it especially the tail.

    Lego BrickHeadz 2018 - Rumors & Discussion

    Anyone know why the sets that were to be released tomorrow have now been delayed to Oct 1st? The only set that is still scheduled to be released tomorrow is the Minecraft set which ironically enough was the last new set to be added to the lego website. Even the Rocket and Groot set which was up on the website for the longest time has been pushed back to Oct 1st along with the 3 new Star Wars sets and Jack/Sally (though I dont disagree with this set coming out in October vs August) I was looking forward to getting these sets tomorrow outside of the Minecraft ( not into that at all) which is now the only one releasing tomorrow

    The LEGO Batman Movie Set/CMF Rumors & Discussion

    Picked up the batwing a few weeks back when walmart and amazon were having their sales. I think it was around 45 bucks. Barnes and Noble in the US has had the lego batman sets discounted 30% for the last two months, most of the good sets were snatched up really quickly. I don't know how but there was a Barnes about 20 miles away that still had the ultimate batmobile in stock. With my barnes membership discount it came out to 88 bucks. Pretty pleased with both finds and planning to build them both sometime in the next 2-3 weeks.

    BTTF wasnt exclusive in the US at least, they were sold at Target stores. It was immediately back ordered online (along with Little Mermaid) when they went on sale so I am guessing that they just didn't have much stock to ship out to retailers yet if its meant to be a non-exclusive set. Though I have yet to see the Tactical Batman/Superman combo in stores here either just at the Lego shop and online. BTTF may have been a lego store and target exclusive as I haven't seen it anywhere else here.

    Lego BrickHeadz 2018 - Rumors & Discussion

    not sure about lego stores but at least in the US S@H immediately had that set and the Little Mermaid set on backorder as soon as it went on sale on the 1st. I was refreshing the page like crazy to pick up those along with the Star Wars and HP Brickheadz. The Ghostbusters were temporarily available yesterday and my order was shipped. But now the Ghostbusters are backordered again. My guess is there probably just wasn't much produced to begin with and Lego didn't anticipate the demand for it considered it was dropped 3 other major franchise Brickheadz releases on the same day (HP, SW, and Frozen). I should hopefully have mine late next week.

    Where did you hear about the Homer/Krusty set? Also being Walmart exclusive? I made a MOC of Homer actually two weeks ago would be nice to compare how it would look to an official lego creation. Hopefully a picture comes out soon.

    21311 - LEGO Voltron

    180 isnt too bad of a price point for this set. I am definitely getting this, I know I saved up my VIP credit for a reason.

    Simpsons sets that NEED to be made

    Disagree with your #2 and #1 options mainly because i dont view them as "iconic" Simpsons landmarks. Moes Tavern would be great but I don't think Lego would do a bar given its family friendly outlook. The Nuclear Power Plant would be another good option for a larger set along with the Elementary School In terms of vehicles: The School Bus, Mr. Plow as you mentioned, the car Homer designed (green car with a dome and multiple horns), Honestly what I would love to see is a UCS-sized Futurama ship before any more Simpsons sets

    I agree about Rocket i think the colors for his fur look off. It seems a bit too brown for me. From what I could tell in pictures he isn't the traditional black/gray in raccoons but he certainly isnt that brown. I am not sure if Lego was trying not to create a new color just for that set or what. Felt a bit disappointed since they've been pretty on point with the recent brickheadz reveals (outside of the Jack one)

    Looks like the Lego Twitter officially announced The Little Mermaid double set. I like the look of Ursula but not sold just yet on Ariel. I dont know when it may be actually released though. Anyone have an idea?

    BrickHeadz 2019 - Rumours, Speculation and Discussion

    I dont disagree with what you said I am sure though if anyone wanted GoT brickheadz it would be fairly easily to make with the different parts out there and swords being available thanks to the castle/knights line. I think Lego will always stick to their family friendly themes unless they really hit a snag when it comes to sales, but right now it doesn't appear that way though. Back to the original topic of "desired" brickheadz It would be neat to see Lego venture into getting some anime licenses like Naruto, DragonBall, Pokemon etc. I've been thinking of trying to build one of Naruto myself.

    BrickHeadz 2019 - Rumours, Speculation and Discussion

    Older stuff is shared with the younger kids but they do not attach onto them the same way. When I tried to show some of the more classic/iconic 80s movies to a younger generation they just weren't impressed whether if it was the special effects (usually the case) or the story itself. But with all things when it comes to kids a property like Back to the Future isnt "cool" now or something that is popular for them to talk about at school etc. So while they may be aware of older movies or shows those products are not going to really sell that well among that demographic.

    Lego BrickHeadz 2018 - Rumors & Discussion

    could be the case i wonder if the Ron/Dumbledore set was supposed to be a TRU exclusive. There are plenty of pictures of the box and sets online. The other 2 HP Brickheadz sets though have been up on the lego website as "coming soon" for a while though. Hopefully they are up on the 1st because right now it seems I'll be buying quite a few new sets on the first otherwise.
