    DC Superheroes 2018 - Set Discussion

    I don't have an issue with anyone discussing this game here, in general, considering how little news there is to discuss in regards to DC Lego, but: Mind your expectations. In that, rarely if ever, do we see TT Games designed character materialize into physical minifigures. Excluding Dimensions and Pre-Order figures, we almost never get any of the character designs shown in the games. Even if we get the same characters--again the designs are often lesser or completely different. So long story short, don't expect to be holding these figures in your hands anytime soon. That said--looks like a great game!

    @sousmarineuse I have removed the link in question. Although, per site policy we do not close accounts on request.

    Why are we listing names and when did we decide Copperhead and Grundy were happening? Let’s keep the speculation to a minimum—so as to not get our hopes up or cause confusion when those hopes don’t happen. Thanks!

    DC Superheroes 2018 - Set Discussion

    The Jessica Cruz figure will be packaged with the Lego DC Aquaman Rage of Atlantis film—which releases July 31st. Super Lex is most likely the pre-order figure for the Lego DC Villains video game—that does not yet have a release date, but presumably it’s late 2018.

    Doctor Who CMF Campaign

    I appreciate the effort that Bill put into these example CMF figures, which look great--so let's focus on those specifically please. Using this as a platform for promotion or (worse) yet some type of "validation via argument" wordplay for why this theoretical series should exist does not seem like a productive use of a thread...

    Mmm...we don’t need two threads for this. Let’s use the other one please!

    why does lego lord voldemort have a nose?

    With a few exceptions, “human” minifigures do not have printed noses—because it should just be assumed that they have noses. Likewise minifigures don’t have printed ears, but many hair pieces are molded so as to give the impression that they have ears. Just because something is not focused on, does not mean it doesn't exist. For Voldemort (and a few other characters such as Mummies and Skeletons), Lego prints holes or slits to emphasize the lack of human features which we would normally just assume to be present. So putting slits on Voldemort’s face is meant to make it off putting and inhuman in comparison to typical minifigures.

    Harry Potter 2018 - Rumors & Discussion

    Let's move the topic away from Advent Calendars--there's a 0% chance we are getting a Harry Potter themed one in 2018--we would have heard about it yesterday when Lego unveiled all of the other calendars for the year. So let's pick that conversation up in 2019 please. Thanks!

    Everyone, please do not quote pictures--it only fills up the thread with duplicate images. Thank you!

    Making Eurobricks More Active

    I would like to add on the "Leaks" topic: The reason we as staff are quick to shut down anything close to true leaking (which would be images), and ask that members not post links or blatant instructions on how to find leaks--is due to the "blame game" factor. The Lego Police, who search the web looking for Leaks tend to (in our experience) dig to find the Leak and then they just stop digging. So for example, someone posts a Leak on Instagram--then a member here posts the same image on Eurobricks. Well in like a week we get an email from Lego saying what is essentially, "what the Hell Eurobricks, you posting leaks!" because they saw that image here first so they just stopped looking. So no, Eurobricks is not leaking. But Lego views the image on our forum, stops digging, and then just points the finger at us. Which is ironic, considering Instagram and Reddit are just littered with leaks. --- Anywho, thank you everyone for the constructive feedback, opinions, and answers to my impromptu questionnaire. Myself and the staff are reading all of the responses. Please keep up the discussion! --- Just for the record: Fabuland is dead and buried! We did a collaborative Eurobricks Fabuland display at Brickworld Chicago a few years back, mind you the world's largest Lego convention--and all we got, not stop, were side eyes and whispers of "That's not Lego..."

    Making Eurobricks More Active

    Thank you @LegoModularFan for opening this thread up for discussion (somewhat ironically ). I'm sure some of the other staff will have input--or would like input--from the Eurobricks community in general regarding this topic. I've been a member of Eurobricks since 2011 (which is a full year earlier than I remember it being!), and I have been the Moderator for Licensed for a few years now. I will say that I, and the staff as a whole, have noticed the general shift in conversation "styles" and activity (and all the things that do come with that) increasingly over the past few years. This is something we have and are addressing internally, and we are looking for ways to reinvigorate the community on the whole. While I do not speak for all of the Forums, I will note my views on the changing of Licensed: Over the last few years I've noted a change in the style of discussion--in that member discussion in general was focused on what's potentially coming and not what we have now. Speculation is fun, when appropriate. Perhaps this is my rose-colored glasses, but I don't remember it being this way previously, at least not to this extent. I personally see this as a negative, as first and foremost I believe this place is meant to be about Lego discussion, rather than the stuff that orbits the product. -- Without trying to derail this, I do have some random questions for the members, if anyone is interested feel free to reply here or to me/staff directly: Would you like to see more contests? What is your opinion of Tags (those small images on the left <---)? Do you use, if ever, Eurobricks reference materials (ie. lists of Reviews, lists of MOCS, lists of Forums)? Have you participated in games on Eurobricks (ie. Role-Playing, Mafia, etc.)? Do you use/visit the Eurobricks Facebook page? Eurobricks on Flickr? etc. Do you post MOCs online? What hosting platform do you prefer to use? Do you prefer broadly defined threads or multiple specialized threads? What is the first page you visit when opening Eurobricks on your browser?
