    Harry Potter 2018 - Rumors & Discussion

    Might not be recognized much longer if they post press releases before the embargo time. Not trying to be snarky, but being one of the sites that actually follows the embargo—and then to be continually under cut by others and Instagram is—annoying to so say the least...

    Or you know we could always just take everything with a grain of salt. That or just focus on the actual confirmed things...

    MOC: Elves, Ragana's Shadow Tower

    As in specific details--upon request perhaps. The castle is still is my Goblin King Fortress, which I have not taken nice pictures of yet. They both recently displayed at Brickworld Chicago 2018 (and will display there again--Ragana's for the final time--next year).

    The first post of each “Year” thread often/should have that information. Rumors are not listed there however; and there is no singular tread that encompasses all themes for the year—each theme has its own specific post/thread.

    Was never happening—it was just wishlist talk.

    Not particularly surprising, considering the earlier statements of their availability. Although it is strange that Target apparently has exclusivity rights to at least some of the sets for (presumably) the month of July. I don't ever remember that happening before. But on the plus side for those in the can order them through Target! Now I just gotta wait for mine to open so I can go pick them up! Alternative conspiracy theory: Lego just didn't want us to get double VIP points on the new HP sets--because of course!

    James Bond 2018

    What does any of this have to do with Bond? Whatever, any member of age knows that we demand correct punctuation on this forum, as well as not admitting we are under age or making it blatantly obvious like saying we are not allowed to watch movies for teens. And of course everyone is of age here yes?

    Where is everyone seeing the extra accessories for Mad-Eye? Ergo the extra hair and potion? Seems weird that he would have four accessory pieces, for one figure. Duh, Instagram. -- And I wouldn't expect a chase variant out of this series. If that rumor had any merit to it I think we would have discussed it here long ago!

    Harry Potter 2018 - Rumors & Discussion

    Well, one--we have rules and regulations that our members must follow, those rules one agreed to when they signed up to yeah... And two, we are "not about" Lego's legal department knocking on our door because our members are posting links to leaked images. Lego and their license holders don't care where the leaks actually are, because apparently they don't know about Instagram--they only care that we have links to them. One of our members posted links to leaked images of the Bugatti Chiron a few weeks back. That member had just joined Eurobricks and had made a total of two posts. Does that matter? No apparently, because Lego just notices that there's a leak on Eurobricks and then the site as a whole gets bitched out because of it.

    I don't know why the hell we need to be talking about Doctor Who here at all? @LEGODalekbuster523 - STOP interjecting Doctor Who into everything. We've told you this multiple times. I'm not going to say it again. --- Now let's talk about Lego Bond please...
