    2017 City Sets - Rumours and Discussion

    That exclusive jungle set is just stunning in my opinion. I really thought that the Exploration Site would be my favorite, but this drop helicopter set is just amazing. A tiger, crocodile, spiders, flytrap plant, and two motorcycles! Seven minifigures and all that scenery! Plus vehicles?! I absolutely love this theme!

    Marvel Superheroes 2017 - Set Discussion

    FYI everyone, As the new GOTG movie is now out in some places, please be courteous and use spoiler tags when discussing the sets in relation to the film. Not everyone can see the film immediately, so let's try to avoid discussing spoilers in public. Remember if you wish to openly discuss the film, you can do so in the Culture & Multimedia forum. Thanks!

    The LEGO Batman Movie Set/CMF Rumors & Discussion

    When some news shows up! I don't have any insider information on future LBM waves, or if we are even getting anything. Eventually something one way or the other will leak, but there's no set date for stuff like that. News comes when it comes.

    71040 The Disney Castle Discussion

    No fears! This set is absolutely not being discontinued at this time. D2C sets have an average lifespan of two years, and extremely popular ones like the Disney Castle can (and most likely will) stay around for a longer time than that. As for the back order label; its simply on back order. Lego apparently has low stock at the moment, but will evidently have more availabile to ship and sell on the 16th.

    Marvel Superheroes 2017 - Set Discussion

    I've said this before, but let's try to avoid statements of opinions phrased as facts. That doesn't make them facts. Just because we get an MCU Vulture body does not mean we will be getting a character specific "Adrian Toomes" head, previous comic book set version, new print, or otherwise. Until we can actually see what face print is under the mask, it's foolish to assume we'll get a new, old, or even remotely accurate face print for the character, including however much Lego wants us to use our imagination. We all remember Gandalf Ant-Man don't we? So less talk about assumptions, more set talk about things we can see.

    Star Wars Rebels

    The end is near! It's not really surprising I suppose that season four will be the last, as the storylines have been driving headlong towards that type of scenerio. But like Filoni, I would (and always) prefer that a show can end on its own terms in the appropriate story manner. That said, IGN tells me there will only be 15 episodes (as opposed to 22) so that's somewhat alarming... Although not as alarming as Hot Kallus' new look (and apparent official nickname)! I cannot wait to see where his storyline goes. Appropriately I hope we also see more of Zeb, as he was really shuttled towards the back in season 3. Trailer wise I was honestly disappointed, as there was no big "humpf!" punch to it, and it was largely recap. Good recap, but still. Granted topping Thrawn's reveal from last year was almost impossible. I do find the worrisome (but very much welcomed) inclusion of Warwick's Rukh to be suggestive of Thrawn's possible end, but considering what happens in the EU, Thrawn's fate most likely will be changed to match the Bendu premonition, hopefully.

    Marvel Superheroes 2017 - Set Discussion

    Everyone take a chill pill please. This is getting ridiculous. Whether the film shows a green or blue suit, we've received a blue suit from Lego. So let's discuss the merits of the figure itself as opposed to having a screaming match over the color wheel. Aside: please do not quote pictures. That's my biggest pet peeve; it's unnecessary to have duplicate images on one page. Thanks!

    Review: 41591 Black Widow

    BrickHeadz is an exciting new Lego theme that depicts our favorite characters from movies, TV shows, games, and comics into fun and stylized collectible forms. Each set contains a brick built figure with a build-able base, that includes a printed tile piece denoting the figure's wave number. Wave one consists of twelve unique and colorful characters based on The Lego Batman Movie, the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Disney's Beauty and the Beast and Pirates of the Caribbean. BrickHeadz is an exclusive theme from Lego, which means that you can only find the BrickHeadz sets at Lego brand retail stores and online from Lego Shop. Before I begin this review, I would like to give my sincerest thanks to The LEGO Group (TLG) who have provided this set, and other wave one BrickHeadz sets, to Eurobricks making this review possible. The opinions expressed in this review are my own. Introduction While being one of the only female Avengers, Black Widow has shown her own in the kicking and pain inflicting department, for which she's been rewarded with a top spot among the first four Mavel BrickHeadz. Lego's 41591 Black Widow also manages to capture the likeness of it's film inspiration--that of Scarlett Johansson--very well, which only adds to the appeal of the figure. But if you're not convinced she's a useful Avenger BrickHeadz yet, read on and let's see if we can change your opinion... Set Stats Name: 41591 Black Widow Theme: Licensed / BrickHeadz Year: 2017 Pieces: 143 Minifigs: N/A Price: USD $9.99, CA $12.99, DE 9.99€, UK £9.99 Resources: Brickset, Bricklink, Lego Shop Packaging As with all BrickHeadz, 41591 Black Widow comes in the standard BrickHeadz box--one that includes a thumb open tap, large BrickHeadz logos, and that wall of ugly text. Still, the blue of the Captain America: Civil War backdrop allows the black and orange figure to pop nicely, as does the image of Scarlett Johansson as Black Widow, for which the figure is inspired by. Inside the box you'll find one instruction booklet, two bags--one big and one small--as well as a loose 4x6 black plate which will be used for the figure's base. Interesting Parts 41591 Black Widow is one of the most part heavy BrickHeadz and she also manages to come with numerous desirable pieces in Dark Orange. Most of these dark orange pieces are various slopes, such as 1x2 slopes, 2x2 slopes, and 1x2 arch slopes. Aside from all the standard inclusions (modified bricks in light bley, BrickHeadz eye tiles, and of course the 2x4 wave tile), Black Widow comes with two uniquely printed pieces. The first is a 1x2 brick which depicts her torso and belt design, and the second being two 1x2 tiles in dark blueish grey that are printed with a depiction of her electrified gauntlets. While still being accurate to the character, the gauntlet tiles are generic enough to find numerous uses elsewhere--which is a plus. Build As with all BrickHeadz, the bulk of the building is focused on the head construction--or rather in the case of 41591 Black Widow, the hair. Using a massive number of slopes, tiles and plates Lego has managed to very accurately depict the hairstyle of the character from the Avengers films. Surprisingly, despite the bulk of the hair, I've not experienced the tendency for the figure to tip over backwards, which is unfortunately the case of other large headed figures like 41588 Joker and 41586 Batgirl. In addition to the hair, I found the belt/waist design to be particularity notable, in that Black Widow does not use a 4x4 plate for her main waist piece, as is the case with most BrickHeadz. Instead, she utilizes four black modified 2x2 plates, which allow for the attachment of a rather low riding belt. I'll also note that I found the transition from the main 1x2 printed brick to the adjacent bricks to be very well done. The black and dark bley colors flow really nicely into the print, creating a very streamlined look. And yes, you also build that base too, with only four pieces. Completed Figure First impression--lots of hair! But in a good way. It's been meticulously sculpted and as a result it has turned out to be very reminiscent of Scarlett Johansson's Black Widow. As I just noted, the streamlined feel to the figure is very nice, and her torso print and pieces are used very well. I also particularly like her leg pouches, which add to the character's armed feel. In that regard, Black Widow also comes with two rather generic accessories, 4 length bars in standard black, for her stun batons. Conclusion 41591 Black Widow is a detailed BrickHeadz with gorgeous dark orange hair and great graphic design. She'll be a welcome addition to any BrickHeadz collection. Score Design: 5/5 - Lots of work went into the hair, and it was worth the effort. Parts: 5/5 - Tons of Dark Orange? What's not to love?! Build: 5/5 - Black Widow utilizes different techniques than other BrickHeadz making her build uniquely interesting. Value for Price: 5/5 - One of the most part heavy BrickHeadz, you get the most for your money. My Score: (20/20) A Eurobricks BrickHeadz Reviews: 41585 Batman, 41586 Batgirl, 41587 Robin, 41588 The Joker, 41595 Belle, 41596 Beast, 41589 Captain America, 41590 Iron Man, 41591 Black Widow, 41592 The Hulk

    Review: 41590 Iron Man

    BrickHeadz is an exciting new Lego theme that depicts our favorite characters from movies, TV shows, games, and comics into fun and stylized collectible forms. Each set contains a brick built figure with a build-able base, that includes a printed tile piece denoting the figure's wave number. Wave one consists of twelve unique and colorful characters based on The Lego Batman Movie, the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Disney's Beauty and the Beast and Pirates of the Caribbean. BrickHeadz is an exclusive theme from Lego, which means that you can only find the BrickHeadz sets at Lego brand retail stores and online from Lego Shop. Before I begin this review, I would like to give my sincerest thanks to The LEGO Group (TLG) who have provided this set, and other wave one BrickHeadz sets, to Eurobricks making this review possible. The opinions expressed in this review are my own. Introduction Iron Man is arguably one of the most popular Marvel characters now, due in large part to his appearance in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. With that in mind, it's no surprise that 41590 Iron Man is one of the first Marvel BrickHeadz (second only to 41589 Captain America, make of that what you will), and for good logistical reasons too--he just looks great. Iron Man, due to his bulky armor, expressionless face, and hot rod color scheme translates to the BrickHeadz style far better than most. 41590 Iron Man is one of the best BrickHeadz, period. But I guess I do have to say a bit more, so read on... Set Stats Name: 41590 Iron Man Theme: Licensed / BrickHeadz Year: 2017 Pieces: 96 Minifigs: N/A Price: USD $9.99, CA $12.99, DE 9.99€, UK £9.99 Resources: Brickset, Bricklink, Lego Shop Packaging As with all BrickHeadz sets, 41590 Iron Man comes in the standard box with all the appropriate logos and walls of texts. Included is also an image of the inspiration, that of Iron Man mark whatever (I lost count, and I don't care to know anymore!) from Captain America: Civil War. Inside the box you'll find one instruction booklet, two bags--one big and one small--as well as a loose 4x6 black plate which will be used for the figure's base. Interesting Parts With a great color scheme, 41590 Iron Man also comes with numerous intersting pieces, both standard and printed. On the standard side, he come with the Brickheadz cornerstones such as the wave tile and fourteen of those modified bricks in light bley. But unlike others, instead of the round BrickHeadz eyes, Iron Man comes with two 1x1 trans-light blue tiles which are actually printed with a simple white square on top of them. This subtle print creates the illusion that they are actually lit by lights, which is very cool. Standard part wise, Iron man also comes with six headlight bricks in Bright Light Orange and eight in Dark Red. Additionally, various Dark Red modified plates are included, which are nice to have. Build Like all BrickHeadz, 41590 Iron Man features a standardized build structure, although he does feature some unique deviations to depict his bulky armor. The numerous headlight bricks also add an added twist on the BrickHeadz mold, which makes constructing Iron Man more interesting than some other figures. Of course, you also construct the standard BrickHeadz base. Completed Figure Overall very nice figure. 41590 Iron Man fits very well in the BrickHeadz template, and that's largely due to the bulky armor which looks nice when dropped into a rather square mold. The level of detail is just right, and the Bright Light Orange pops expertly well against the dark red. Lego could have used Pearl Gold instead, but I appreciate that they went with a brighter, if slightly less accurate, shade instead. Now unlike his SDCC counterpart, this Iron Man unfortunately does not come with repuslor blasts as an accessory. I would have appreciated those being included, but thankfully their absence is not as egregious as Captain America missing his shield or anything. Conclusion Disputed leader of the Avengers, 41590 Iron Man is both a necessary inclusion in any respectable Marvel BrickHeadz collection, but also a very well done figure in his own right. Score Design: 5/5 - The Iron Man armor translated very well to the blocky style of BrickHeadz. Parts: 5/5 - Dark Red and Bright Light Orange? Sign me up! Build: 5/5 - Despite on the surface reading mostly as just tiles, there's lots of nice interesting bits just under the surface. Value for Price: 5/5 - A good number of parts in uncommon colors and a great figure to boot means this is worth the cost. My Score: (20/20) A Eurobricks BrickHeadz Reviews: 41585 Batman, 41586 Batgirl, 41587 Robin, 41588 The Joker, 41595 Belle, 41596 Beast, 41589 Captain America, 41590 Iron Man, 41591 Black Widow, 41592 The Hulk

    Review: 41592 The Hulk

    BrickHeadz is an exciting new Lego theme that depicts our favorite characters from movies, TV shows, games, and comics into fun and stylized collectible forms. Each set contains a brick built figure with a build-able base, that includes a printed tile piece denoting the figure's wave number.

Before I begin this review, I would like to give my sincerest thanks to The LEGO Group (TLG) who have provided this set, and other wave one BrickHeadz sets, to Eurobricks making this review possible. The opinions expressed in this review are my own. Introduction Yes, Hulk smash. Its a catchy catchphrase and decorum requires I write it here at least once, so I'm getting it out of the way now. Anyways, Hulk is a cornerstone member of the Avengers from the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and so it's no surprise that he's one of the first four characters to make the leap the film screen to Lego BrickHeadz, in the form of 41592 The Hulk. But while his straightforward dialogue and poppin purple pants have made him a crowd pleaser, in my opinion, they don't seem to have made the transition to BrickHeadz particularly well. Why should you ask? Well read on... Also quick aside, do note I apparently inaccurately placed Hulk's thumbs in my images...whoops... Set Stats Name: 41592 The Hulk Theme: Licensed / BrickHeadz Year: 2017 Pieces: 93 Minifigs: N/A Price: USD $9.99, CA $12.99, DE 9.99€, UK £9.99 Resources: Brickset, Bricklink, Lego Shop Packaging Color. The reason is color. Cutting to the chase, 41592 The Hulk is intended to represent the film version, specifically the one from Avengers: Age of Ultron (and as such has a unique red colored box), but he just doesn't cut it color wise. This is most evident on the box art itself, which while showing all the standard staples such as the BrickHeadz logo and that ugly wall of text, importantly shows the character inspiration image--one which is clearly depicts an olive green Hulk as opposed to the Lego green Hulk. It's a subtle but significant difference. Lego Marvel Superheroes learned this lesson after their first Avengers set wave in 2012--in which the first Lego bigfig of Hulk was inaccurately molded in bright green--only to soon be switched over to the correct olive green shade for the next film sets. Now you may be saying, "well so what, he's still green". True, that is a valid point. But in my view the fact that he is not the right green is a significant issue as the figure is billed as, and is meant to accompany other figures being billed as, versions from the Avengers/MCU films. This is not a film Hulk, this is comic Hulk. But I digress. In the meantime on the actual subject of packaging, inside the box you'll find one instruction booklet, two bags--one big and one small--as well as a loose 4x6 black plate which will be used for the figure's base. Interesting Parts Considering that he's basically just green skin and purple pants, one doesn't go into 41592 The Hulk expecting the greatest new pieces ever. And I'm not going to try and dispute that. Hulk comes with the standards, such as the wave plate, BrickHeadz eyes, and those modified bricks (fourteen of them). He does have two nice hinge pieces in green, but that's about it. Printed parts: just two 1x4 bricks that depict his muscular torso. What you see is what you get with this guy. Build 41592 The Hulk is perhaps one of the simplest BrickHeadz to construct, which is not surprising considering he's basically just giant-sized normal person, well with green skin. There's no interesting new techniques, although he does feature some abnormally large arms and hands for a BrickHeadz, which I think work well as they give the impression of a bulky person without actually changing the standardized scale itself. Completed Figure I mean, does it look like Hulk? Absolutely. But I cannot shake the feeling that he should have been in olive green. Consitancy wise, all the other Marvel figures are based on their popular film appearance looks, and Hulk just stands out because he's too bright--he has not been appropriately muted down to match the film. Does he make a good figure himself--yes. Does he fit in with the movie specific figures? That's a tough question and frankly one that's up for everyone to individually decide. Conclusion 41592 The Hulk may have smashed expectations with his recent appearances in the Avengers films, but I don't think he's the breakout start of the Marvel BrickHeadz wave. Score Design: 5/5 - Overall, it's hard to get the Hulk's shape wrong, really. Parts: 2/5 - Green? Wrong--Olive Green is right! Build: 5/5 - Simple, but that's expected for a character like Hulk. Value for Price: 3/5 - Is it worth adding to your collection, when he doesn't fit in stylistically? My Score: (15/20) C Eurobricks BrickHeadz Reviews: 41585 Batman, 41586 Batgirl, 41587 Robin, 41588 The Joker, 41595 Belle, 41596 Beast, 41589 Captain America, 41590 Iron Man, 41591 Black Widow, 41592 The Hulk

    Uhhhh! Apologies to the on-topic members for this aside... Everyone: @Delta Customs @Amazing Bricks What is it with leakers and cat fights? It is inappropriate for members to start publicly (or privately) attacking one another. It encourages other members to join in (you know who you are) and gang up against each other. If you wish to leak info, great, go ahead. But know there's no award for being the best leaker. There's no fight tower where you have to knock each other down to level up. Every leaker who wishes to stay at Eurobricks needs to understand that. We're a community and everyone needs to feel welcome; attacking one another is the quickest way to being booted off the island. If you want to devludge info, go ahead. If the info is right, great. If it is wrong? Oh well. But it is unacceptable for these petty fights across Eurobricks to continue. I've seen this also happen very recently in the Star Wars forum, and it needs to end now. I have no patience for this type of behavior. --- Now let's all get back to something that matters: critiquing tiny plastic Danish toys. Thank you!

    Review: 41596 Beast

    BrickHeadz is an exciting new Lego theme that depicts our favorite characters from movies, TV shows, games, and comics into fun and stylized collectible forms. Each set contains a brick built figure with a build-able base, that includes a printed tile piece denoting the figure's wave number. Wave one consists of twelve unique and colorful characters based on The Lego Batman Movie, the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Disney's Beauty and the Beast and Pirates of the Caribbean. BrickHeadz is an exclusive theme from Lego, which means that you can only find the BrickHeadz sets at Lego brand retail stores and online from Lego Shop. Before I begin this review, I would like to give my sincerest thanks to The LEGO Group (TLG) who have provided this set, and other wave one BrickHeadz sets, to Eurobricks making this review possible. The opinions expressed in this review are my own. Introduction Beauty and the Beast is without a doubt one of Disney's greatest films, so it shouldn't be surprising that when Lego tackles said property head on, good results soon follow. 41596 Beast should be of particular interest to BrickHeadz fans because he's has the most non-human form of all the figures we've seen from the first wave. No doubt later down the line we'll end up with some equally challenging shapes being squeezed into the BrickHeadz mold but the fact that Beast has turned out so well (and frankly so cute), can only mean good things to come. But for now, let's take a deeper look at the Beast within... Set Stats Name: 41596 Beast Theme: Licensed / BrickHeadz Year: 2017 Pieces: 116 Minifigs: N/A Price: USD $9.99, CA $12.99, DE 9.99€, UK £9.99 Resources: Brickset, Bricklink, Lego Shop Packaging The BrickHeadz sets all come in the same sized box (3.6 x 4.8 x 3.1), and 41596 Beast is no exception. Unlike the box style used for the Lego Batman Movie BrickHeadz, such as that on 41585 Batman, the color scheme used by 41596 Beast is far more pleasing to the eye. Bright pink is used which contrasts very nicely with the blue and yellow coat worn by Beast as well as all of his Dark Orange fur. The white brick border on the bottom of the box is also of particular note, as it gives the whole set a very clean and premium feel. The front and right hand side features the BrickHeadz logo as well as an image of the Beast himself, including image of the figure's 1991 animated inspiration. Both 41595 Belle and the Beast are inspired by their animated appearance rather than their upcoming live action forms, I suspect this was done by Lego to reach the widest possible buying audience and beef up the nostalgia factor. While live action Belle may not have changed much visually, the upcoming live action Beast is certainly darker overall and would likely have created a more animalistic and possibly unfamiliar figure for the public. So in my opinion it was wise to go with the animated form. Unlike the Lego Batman Movie BrickHeadz, the Disney based ones use an ugly white wall of text, as opposed to a black one. Somewhat better? The back of the 41596 Beast box features images of 41595 Belle, as well as the two upcoming Pirates of the Caribbean BrickHeadz: 41593 Captain Jack Sparrow and 41594 Captain Armando Salazar. And as with all BrickHeadz boxes, this one is opened by a thumb tab rather than tape. Inside the box you'll find one instruction booklet, two bags--one big and one small--as well as a loose 4x6 black plate which will be used for the figure's base. Interesting Parts Being brightly colored and furry, 41596 Beast comes with a number of desirable parts, many of which coming the uncommon color of Dark Orange. These include eight 2x2 slopes, one 1x2 slope, two modified 1x2 plates with side clip, two dark orange jumper plates, and two dark orange 1x2 tooth plates. Additionally, Beast comes with two white quarter melon tiles, which are used for his fangs. As with all BrickHeadz, Beast features a number of (1x2x1 2/3) modified brick with side studs (in this case fourteen), as well as the standardized BrickHeadz eye tiles and wave indication 2x4 plate. 41596 Beast only comes with one uniquely printed piece, which is his vest print on a 1x1x2 yellow brick. Build As with all BrickHeadz the underlying structure of the figure is more or less the same--it's only when one reaches the head to things really start to change technique wise. In this regard, 41596 Beast features a number of smart choices that not only make the figure fun to build, but spot on accurate after the face. The use of quarter melon tiles for the fangs, the semblance of a lower lip with a goatee, and even bushy eyebrows really sell the look of the animated character. Also of note this is the only BrickHeadz thus far that has a tail! Completed Figure He's so cute! The little bow, the fangs, even the standardized BrickHeadz eyes giving the puppy dog look! Now why wouldn't Belle love him? Ignoring the kidnapping and servitude bits of course. Still, 41596 Beast is a truly stunning figure--not only does he look like his animated counterpart, but he simply pops on a shelf. The colors are bold and the design is new and unique. What's more to ask for? Conclusion An absolute must have for Disney fans, I'm sure we'll find even marginal BrickHeadz fans will be considering adding 41596 Beast to their collection. Score Design: 5/5 - Oh how a beast could be so beautiful, and not just on the inside! Lego has captured the Beast's face very well. Parts: 5/5 - Despite having only one unique print, the large amount of Dark Orange pieces more than make up for it. Build: 5/5 - The most animal-like of the Wave 1 BrickHeadz, Beast is interesting to build simply because his face is so different and detailed. Value for Price: 5/5 - Dark Orange, cute cuddly Beast? What's not to love at this price point? My Score: (20/20) A Eurobricks BrickHeadz Reviews: 41585 Batman, 41586 Batgirl, 41587 Robin, 41588 The Joker, 41595 Belle, 41596 Beast, 41589 Captain America, 41590 Iron Man, 41591 Black Widow, 41592 The Hulk

    Alternatively, Thrawn's involvement on the ground combat mission could be seen as a result of Konstantine's failure in space. Knowing that there was already an issue with their space superiority threatening total victory, Thrawn may have decided to command the ground forces personally, so as to ensure their success. We don't know if Thrawn was intending to do that from the start, because from all indications he clearly prefers playing distant chess than in your face boxing (but is of course great at both). The more I think about it, the more I believe Thrawn really did succeed in the battle. He may not have captured the Ghost & Friends, but he did completely destroy Phoenix Squadron. That said I think we need to wait until season 4 to really see the ramifications of the battle itself. On the plus side though, this episode did give us one of Thrawn's greatest lines, in the form of his scream to "Konstanteeeeen!"
