    Some Rude Moderators?

    Thank you (and the other members) for your input. In relation to your question about my standards of the Licensed thread: it is my personal objective to ensure that members conversing in the Licensed forum (specifically the 'year' threads) focus on official information first and foremost, as much as possible. Discussion of non-official info, such as that provided from members (while appreciated), often causes the thread(s) to derail. Members not participating in the discussion actively come to me, the thread itself, or through use of the report button, to ask questions about the validity of claims and/or to report to the staff that the thread itself has become too confusing for them to follow. My intent behind keeping the threads on topic is to ensure that they are easy for anyone to understand at a glance--not only for those members actively participating in the discussion, but also for the many more members and site visitors that read the thread but don't actively participate in the conversation. When I see that we are getting reports of off-topic conversations and when I see members asking if unofficial information is 'true', I know that it is time to step in and attempt to sway the conversion in the right direction. This is not an easy task to do--which is why I become (clearly) frustrated when the discussion does not change after I ask members to focus on the central topic on hand. I apologize to those who have been offend by my statements, that is not my intent, and for the record I do not come to Eurobricks to harass other members. I do not intend however to change my core principle of keeping the thread focused. All that said, I will attempt to do so from now on with a more cordial tone, as per the request of the Licensed community. So what does this mean going forward? I don't have any problems with people discussing various topics across the forum, I only ask that they be discussed in their proper place (to the best of one's ability). The Licensed forum already contains many underutilized threads where the conversation on unoffical information (etc.) can be openly discussed, such as: the Marvel Super Hero General Discussion, DC Super Heroes General Discussion, Future Marvel Super Heroes Discussion, Future DC Super Heroes Discussion, Marvel Super Heroes Wishlist, DC Super Heroes Wishlist, among many others. It is also entirely appropriate for members to create new threads to discussion topics that they feel are not applicable in any of the current threads. Incidentally, we also have the movie threads in the Community forum for DC and Marvel, which I often point towards when discussion gets too spoilery or too speculative for the year threads. I understand the close relationship between the movies and the sets makes this separation difficult, but I and many members would appreciate if spoilery material could be left to these two threads, whenever possible. I hope this helps clear up my stance on thread discussions, but I am always available here or through PM if anyone wishes to further discuss this or other mod-related conversations with me.

    Marvel Superheroes 2016 Rumors And Discussion

    I don't know what to say. Clearly people don't seem to grasp the difference between on-topic and off-topic discussions. Or more likely they just choose to ignore me completely. SO I'm just going to hide away all the off-topic garbage that people keep dumping here. If you want your posts to show up in the Licensed forum, you better damn well be sure they're on topic. We'll see how many people read that I suppose.

    Marvel Superheroes 2016 Rumors And Discussion

    Personally, I wish we didn't have any members posting information from "sources" (ergo leakers). Or the ramblings of uninformed Toys R Us employees for that matter. They cause nothing but rampant speculation and endless postings of questions like "what about the polybag?" when there's no indication, whatsoever, that we are getting such a set. All that said, last time I checked this was the Lego Marvel 2016 Discussion thread--so let's focus on the sets shall we?

    Marvel Superheroes 2017 - Set Discussion

    Here's a thought...no spoiler tags should be used at all! Because this is not a movie discussion thread--you shouldn't be talking about spoilery plot points in the first place! This is a Lego set discussion thread. Talk about Lego Marvel 2017 sets, or don't talk at all. Simple as that.

    REVIEW: 41492 Iron Man & Captain America

    Great review Oky! I find the box art rather hilarious, so I hope they keep the 360 degree photographing going on for the actual line. That being said, I don't really care for the styling or concept really of these figures in the first place. As a convention exclusive--they're great. As a full line? Rather derivative of Funko and not original--which really seems off for Lego. So it will be really interesting to see the reception of the full line and how well they seem to sell.
  6. After fighting his way out of the labyrinth of lines that is SDCC, Eurobricks Review Academy teacher Oky presents his review of this convention exclusive set; a set which foreshadows the upcoming Lego Brickheadz line, to be released in 2017.

    The LEGO Batman Movie Set/CMF Rumors & Discussion

    As always, the only confirmed information is what has been posted to the first page of this thread. Everything else is just conjecture, speculation, and baseless wishes--and should be treated as such. I've been getting a lot of reports coming from this thread so I'll say it now, again, and clearly since members choose not to comprehend my posts: This thread is not for wishlists. This thread is not for speculation. Discuss the sets--the ones we actually know about--or don't discuss anything at all. Take the movie talk to the right place. Thanks.

    Marvel Superheroes 2017 - Set Discussion

    Let's all focus on the sets we do know about, and not debate how many sets we think we will get... Thanks!

    LEGO Disney minifgures series 2 List Rumors

    These are really just unsubstantiated rumors--and as seeing as we are still months away from 2017, I'm going to close this thread. If anyone wishes to further discuss this rumored list, please use the Disney CMF Wishlist thread. Thanks!
  10. Captain Nemo

    DC Superheroes 2016 - Rumors and Discussion

    That is more of a discussion for the minifigure customization forum. Please only set discussion here! Thanks!

    [MOC] And All the Powers of Hell!

    "Now, shall you deal with me, O Prince! And all the powers of Hell!" Herein lies proof that I don't just show up to adjust conversation discussions , but that I do, in fact, build things too! This Sleeping Beauty creation was built for, and displayed at, Brickworld Chicago 2016. At the convention it won the award for Best Vignette.

    71040 The Disney Castle Discussion

    Incidentally, for anyone intending to buy two castles in order to place them back to back--do note the castle is asymmetrical...as in it won't work without tremendous effort! That would be an expensive mistake!

    Marvel Superheroes 2017 - Set Discussion

    Let's move the discussion away from wishlists and more towards actual set discussion shall we? Thanks!

    LEGO Dimensions Discussion

    Are we seriously...collectively...asking for someone to LEAK PICTURES?! I don't even know what to say to that, except everyone asking for this knows it is not something they should be doing, but they clearly don't care. If anyone posts leaked pictures, they will be banned. Simple as that.

    The LEGO Batman Movie Set/CMF Rumors & Discussion

    Everyone please stop asking questions and digging for information from sources. This thread is turning into nothing but questions. Also, be advised that none of this information is actually confirmed. We've been burned before by grandiose claims coming out of nowhere. This feels like one of those instances to me. Thanks!

    Cars 3 2017

    Last I checked this was fake. That was made abundantly clear. Please do not open new year threads based on hunches and hints. If and when we get any credible tangible info on this theme, I'll consider opening a thread.
  18. Captain Nemo

    DC Superheroes 2017 - Set Discussion

    Appreciate the enthusiasm! However, I'm going to hide that thread away until we get more substantial information that demands a sub-theme specific thread be made. In the meantime, all the "DC Superhero Girls" discussions can continue on here, in the overarching DC Superheroes 2017 thread. I've merged the previous Girls discussion over. Thanks everyone!

    Ghostbusters 2016 Reboot discussion

    How does this contribute to a productive Ghostbusters film discussion at all, in any way? Everyone: I've been watching this thread for a while now, and it's really spiraling out of hand. If you like the movie great, rejoice, talk about it. If you don't like the movie, ok, talk about your dislike if you wish. But don't come here to tell people that they're wrong for liking the movie or worse yet, use this thread as means to incite anger because its supposedly besmirching a 'classic' through the use of actresses. Thanks!

    The LEGO Batman Movie Set/CMF Rumors & Discussion

    Time to change this inappropriate conversation. Talk about the sets. Talk about Lego. DO NOT talk about gender inequality or sexual preferences. I don't know why I have to point out that this is clearly not the place for that kind of discussion.

    DC Superheroes 2017 - Set Discussion

    Let's move the discussion away from the clearly (and confirmed) fake Croc figure. Shall we? Official set discussion only! Thanks!
  22. Captain Nemo

    Marvel Superheroes 2017 - Set Discussion

    Guys, please focus on the sets we do know about, not ones we hope to get. There is no indication--at all--that we are getting any Marvel D2C set anytime soon. So let's not run off tying to guess what the non-existent set will be. And as always...keep the movie talk in the MCU discussion thread. Thanks!

    Hagrid's Hands

    Hello, welcome to Eurobricks! While your input here is appreciated, please in the future do not reply to threads that are many years old. Thanks! And hope to see you around!

    The LEGO Batman Movie Set/CMF Rumors & Discussion

    Guys, this is not the place to post wishlists. Actual set discussion please. Thanks!
  25. Captain Nemo

    The LEGO Batman Movie Set/CMF Rumors & Discussion

    I will just say this--the issue of fake leaks are exacerbated when everyone jumps to conclusions and takes unverified information as fact. So...let's focus on the sets we do know about. No more leak talk please.
