    Imma be real upset if Series 2 doesn’t happen! Please someone get a lifeboat! Save the Vampire and Dragon! Maybe the Gummy Bear. Everyone else, fend for yourself. But seriously, the worst thing about S2 being potentially canceled is that we’ve already seen it and can never un-see it.

    Ok, we’ll we tried apparently. Some people didn’t and clearly won’t. I’ll unlock this thread Monday? We’ll try that? Also, don’t worry I’ll be back later this weekend when I’m not sick and have some time to devote to banning some people. Sorry everyone, we tried.

    The Loki show is not relevant to discuss HERE at all. We are not getting sets based off the show. We are getting two minifigures as part of a CMF series. That’s it. This is not the place to discuss the show itself and spoilers from it. This is a Lego discussion thread, one that specifically gets highly agitated when members start casually whipping out seconds old spoilers. I can’t remember how many times I’ve had to address this. I won’t be addressing it anymore. Post spoilers and you’re out. Be respectful of your fellow members everyone. Thanks.

    I mean, these are dinosaur sets all right. I’ll buy all of them, but I won’t be happy about it.

    I will clarify one more time and I will not clarify again: Out of respect for our members, at their past, current, and continual direction, myself and the other MODs expect you not to discuss film spoilers in this thread. This is not a film discussion thread. DO NOT discuss film spoilers in this thread. Be respectful of your fellow members and the many many guests who drop in and out of this thread expecting and deserving to see LEGO discussion. It is not unreasonable to expect that one can enter this thread and NOT have the next ten years of MCU films ruined for them, not have each and every secret cameo screamed at them from the heavens, and not be hit in the face with IMDB's rating of next year's leaked script and how it's already dumpster fire. In the past, the Staff has temporarily closed this thread around the release dates of MCU films, typically for the release weekend. This process worked well, for members and staff, especially for Infinity War/Endgame, as it gave everyone a reasonable chance to see the film and have a reasonable expectation that said film would not be blatantly spoiled for them upon opening Eurobricks in their browser. This is something we can continue to do in the future, it is something I expect we will do in the future. Alternatively, I can remove one's ability to discuss anything on this website ever again, if continual discussion of spoilers continues to be a problem. Thank you!

    I say it’s not fine—or rather just not really relevant! There is no reason to be discussing leaked film plot elements here, regardless of them being in spoiler tags or not. It will only invite such information to be openly discussed, which no one wants. Please take film discussion over to Culture & Multimedia—this thread is for Lego set discussion. Thanks!

    FYI—I removed an image of the set posted here. I know it is everywhere online, but please do not post leaked images here. Discussion can continue here; FYI there will be a dedicated press release/discussion thread when(ever) the set is officially revealed.

    I would have exchanged like 10 of the civilians for like two new or updated heroes/villains. You don’t HAVE to put in 25!

    I’m still medium on this. I love all the details I’ve seen, though I’m not looking really deep at everything because I still want to be surprised when building it—but the newspapers are a huge standout. Hopefully they’ll be on B&P because I’d love multiples upon multiples. Also the sticker sheet is amazing—more stickers Lego! Put stickers on everything! I do really dislike the lack of any depth in general. The interior is extremely cramped. Even though the top floors get even leaner, I do like that tiered look the back has. Having a lean style in itself is not bad, but the massively wide sign doesn’t help. Does it overhang on a 32 baseplate?! Damn! Change the font size maybe? I have to admit the windows are unforgivable in my eyes. I display at many conventions, and one of my biggest pet peeves is seeing custom skyscrapers built seemingly entirely from 1x2x2 window panels. It always comes off as very cheap, basic, and thrown together. Trans-clear is my favorite color, but in the instance of panel stacking, it always looks terrible. The visible lines it creates on what should be a smooth window pane are just horrible! So I really wish the windows were designed in some sort of interesting way to clean up the look. Not just stacking panels. I like the new minifigures. I mean like the five new ones, the heroes. All the the civilians are utter throwaways. But now I’m just complaining. Good set in general I think.

    I mean that’s a build. There are some not necessarily “odd” choices being made, but some choices were in fact made. The red is rather bold. Not at all what I expected and I don’t know if it’s what I wanted either. But for sure, it is a thing.

    These are medium to me I think. In general they're all pretty good, but they could all use some touchups. The Iron Monger set is by far my favorite. I love all the gunmetal and the oversized weapons. Yeah, he needs to work on his abs and get some muscle under the arms, but I think he's pretty good. Stane is a nice minifigure too. The Flyer is well built, but you're just buying that for Shuri. The Gauntlet is surprisingly good to me, considering it was an "I don't care" set by the description. I do think it's pretty ridiculous that Lego is going to cheap out on the side of the build specifically and use curved slopes in dark tan instead of metallic. Like you really couldn't have just included two more metallic pieces that you already use in the set? I don't care if it's a budget thing about saving pennies on the dollar; Lego you're just purposefully making ugly sets. Where are the standards? That said, I'll pick this up. Along with some extra slopes! The Endgame battle I think is just ugly, but that's me. It's really really bland, from a build standpoint. Like please Lego Gods, throw some stickers on the side of that van! I don't like that the building is largely spotless and yet there's an odd entirely destroyed section next to it. To me it should either all be destroyed or all spotless. Thanos is questionable. The concept works, but I think the execution on the face lets it down. The head is sunken in a bit, so I think the face print should compensated by being raised up a little bit to get a better focus on the prominent Thanos chin, which currently disappears into the torso. Also the mouth is a weird cross between a smile and a scowl, so again, pick one Lego. I do like the inclusion of studs on the back--could be a signal Lego intends to use this new setup for more characters down the line, hopefully.

    Hard to tell frankly, because the castle is covered in watermarks, but this set is, I think, medium for me. Regardless of it including minifigures or minidolls, I did not have any doubt that the build would be very well done, and it appears to be. Is there too much white? Maybe, but I personally think it’s early to judge yay or nay, at least from this photo. To clarify/elaborate my position on minifigures vs minidolls—here in this specific set—I wish they were minifigures. My opinion, since the first rumblings of this set on the horizon, has been: for the sake of “newness” this set must include minifigures. I’m tired of buying the same set over and over again. What makes this castle different than last three? four? Elsa castles we already have—the price and literal scale yes—but what is exclusive? Unique? Why buy this over the others; why buy this if I have the others? And look, that was always going to be a problem because of the subject matter; Elsa’s castle is popular and we’ve understandably received other versions already. That doesn’t mean we cannot or should not have this version. But it means this version should have something more. Something fresh. Inherently, this castle should be empty. Elsa did not conjure up furniture or paintings for the walls. Despite what Lego would have you believe, there is unfortunately no ice cream machine within the castle walls. So how could we add something fresh? Other than by simply making it taller and more expensive? The characters! Minidolls however limit that; Lego for whatever reason, most likely cost, doesn’t want a minidoll set to have more than the bare minimum included. Where is Hans? His exclusion here is egregious. Where is marshmallow? Where is Sven? Why not have the whole gang finally together at last in this, the ultimate Frozen set? Sven has more screen time with the castle than the Snowgies—they’re not even in the movie! Snowgies are here because Lego already made them, rather makes them, for the other multiple current and upcoming Frozen castles! I could ramble about this for a while, and I suspect I will again; I’m clearly very cynical about the Disney (princess) theme. So I’ll end for now with this: set is mmm... 8/10. Lovely box art. Will buy.

    Ugh! Really Lego? Wake me up when Disney CMF series 3 arrives I suppose.
