    71040 The Disney Castle Discussion

    Let's keep the discussion here about the Cinderella Castle set, not about Dr. Who wishlists or other potential Disney possibilities. Yes, very much not official, as they note in the article.

    71040 The Disney Castle Discussion

    Please don't bicker about the lack of inclusion of the Cinderella character. The set is clearly the based on the theme park building named Cinderella's Castle, rather than the movie/characters from which it takes its name. There's really no point in dragging out this issue. Thanks!

    I don't want anyone posing any suspicious photos of the set here please. We don't want to antagonize Lego...or Mickey Mouse.

    Guys please do not just list out your favorite minifigures here. It fills the thread with clutter. Thanks!

    The point of this thread is to discuss Lego Dimensions, not Dr. Who companions. Focus on the game please!

    Marvel Superheroes 2017 - Set Discussion

    Guys for the second time today...focus on the 2017 sets. Not the movies, not the TV shows, not gender/race inclusion or lack thereof. 2017 Marvel Set discussion only!

    Marvel Superheroes 2016 Rumors And Discussion

    So I guess this is the 'annual' two year X-Men set we should expect...and they managed...for a third time...to include Wolverine and Magneto. On the plus side though--classic Iron Man!

    Lego is just unveiling these at SDCC--they will not be sold at the event and will not show up on store shelves until January.

    DC Superheroes 2017 - Set Discussion

    Despite what Lego may have you believe, Superheroes with no space is the standard written format, and the standard that has been in place here for a long time. Which means I intend to keep that standard in place, now that I know it annoys people. As for pinning, no--we switched over to the Tower format simply because there are too many themes in Licensed to realistically pin all of the threads at once. Let's talk about sets please. Seriously, we actually have stuff to talk about now--stay on topic.

    SDCC Superheroes Exclusive Minifigures Guessing Game 2016

    Guys, please do not attempt to solicit information from other members. This is a "guessing game" thread (whatever the point of that is), which means that you should not expect anything in this thread to be confirmed information anyways. I don't particularity like threads such as this as they only spread false rumors, but in the interest of keeping them contained here, I'm going to leave this thread open for now. Do remember however, nothing listed in this thread should be treated as fact. Thank you!

    Everyone, please focus on the sets here, not SDCC figures that we know nothing about. Thank you!

    The LEGO Batman Movie Set/CMF Rumors & Discussion

    Speculation? Mmmm...no. We are clearly getting closer to actual set reveals--so in light of that, please do not post "speculation" wishlists in this thread anymore. It's only going to cause great confusion. Thanks!

    LEGO Star Wars 2016 Pictures and Rumors

    Well they basically are. The people who build the sets are not the same people who determine prices, make the box art, take the pictures, or write the set descriptions. While as builders/collectors it may be more interesting for us to see them including info about the new techniques or the great parts being used--that's not necessarily something that will help inform parents or buyers about what's specifically included. That's how we get things like "includes a wrench!" or my personal favorite, "Also includes a cat" in regards to the 60's Batcave.

    LEGO Ideas Discussion

    Isn't that the point of Lego Ideas? People don't want new ideas, they want old ideas in the form of "new" Lego bricks. The fact that Lego's Ideas sets are based on the same source material as those examples means they will be similar (although Lego clearly wears it better!); that doesn't mean Lego should not make sets based on them. So you would rather Lego not make Scooby-Doo, or Dr. Who, or Beatles because some other toy company already (failed) at making them first? I don't care if some company made toys first, as long as we get's Lego's good version eventually! On the Jurassic Park vehicle, it's unfortunate that it was not chosen. Although I think we should consider that perhaps it conflicted with licensing agreements of the Jurassic World sets (which we may or may not be getting more of for the sequels). It could easily the be true reason for the rejection.

    LEGO Dimensions Discussion

    The world does not revolve around Dr. Who. And again, Lego would get far more people playing the game by adding in more and more wide-variety franchises than building up one that less people may be interested in. In regards to Simpsons, I agree it may have been better to use Marge or Lisa as opposed to say Krusty, but it does appear Lego was very limited in regards to their Simpsons options as they lacked the ability to use the voice actors (with the exception being ‎Dan Castellaneta), which not only made the characters rather quiet, but severely limited the level options. It's seems clear that some franchises are one-off's and others are not. Apparently. There's a good amount of options on who it could include. I'm hoping for the Ice King, although I could see him being used as the level villain instead (if not the Lich, as indication from Finn's box art).

    LEGO Dimensions Discussion

    Every franchise has tons of characters they could do. I don't know why there's the continual assumption that they will go back to "old" franchises to make more characters. Lego will (and should) only go forward with new franchises to entice more people to join in to the game. Plus they've already made full games for Harry Potter, Jurassic World, LotR, etc. so making more packs for them is rather redundant. Not that I don't appreciate their inclusion in the first place.

    Wow, impressive line up. Not only in terms of the quality of the physical parts, but the new franchises too. Left speechless, not sure what to say!

    DC Superheroes 2016 - Rumors and Discussion

    No, we do not need to start a 2017 now. It's June. Most of the new sets have yet to even make it to stores, so we are jumping the gun a little bit--especially since I've yet to see any info on potential future sets that would warrant the need to create a new thread at this time. FYI Everyone: However, when the time comes for a new thread, we ask that Clone OPatra or I are the ones to create it. Previously, this was just done by various members rather spontaneously, and while that was appreciated, we would like that to not be the case in the future. Having a staff member create the important "year threads" ensures that we are the only ones (without the aid of the third-party member) able to update the all important first page, and thus keep all the necessary standards up in regards to format and release (or removal) of sensitive information. Thanks!
