    The Lego Movie 2 - The Second Part 2019 Set Discussion

    The set in question was sold on two separate, publicly visible, eBay listings--how those two sellers acquired the set to sell is their own business, if it was though illegal means then it is up to eBay and the appropriate authorities to deal with. Once the images entered the public consciousness however, they are out there. Please do not call out other members as thieves for seeing something with their eyes on Instagram and then wanting to talk about it here. -- Back to set discussion everyone. All set discussion.

    The Lego Movie 2 - The Second Part 2019 Set Discussion

    Well I don't know about anyone else--but I think this might be the best Lego Movie set yet! I hoped we would get some great Mad-Max builds, and while the first wave sets didn't have much of that, this D2C has it in spades! The build is so dense and I'm very impressed that the detail continues 360 degrees around--the back looks just as good as the front! An instant buy on sight for me! Also--the famed return of the barbed wire piece!

    The LEGO Batman Movie Set/CMF Rumors & Discussion

    Let’s take that tweet with a grain of salt for now...developing a film is way different than actively working on a green-lit one. So that is by no means confirmation a LBM2 is happening.

    Harry Potter 2018 - Rumors & Discussion

    Don’t read too much into that artwork. Stuff like that is not made by the set design team, rather outsourced artists. They are given lots of leeway in their ability to design and include characters in styles and costumes that were never intended to come to fruition—at least as they are show here.

    We’re getting a Duplo Classic Electro? I must have missed that news. Either way, I would not take that to mean we should expect a Minifigure version anytime soon...if one recalls, the preliminary images for the Spider-Trike originally showed a Classic Electro figure, new helmet and all... But ultimately the final set gave us...the Ultimate version.

    Awesome! I spent the afternoon taking some interesting photos, I just need to actually figure out how to screenshot them after the fact. —— I’ve noticed some weird occurrences with the customizer too, but only ever regarding the abilities. I’ve been able to get bolts to fire from a single weapon, but I’ve not tried duel wielding. I think a big issue is that the abilities can often accidentally override each other without notice, which causes all sorts of issues. So basically it’s super important to be careful when selecting buttons and their corresponding actions. —— I haven’t checked, but presumably it is somewhere considering the fact its built on the loading screen’s micro scale model. I’ll have to look around.

    I've finished the story and have spent the last day or so free-roaming around. Overall it's been great fun--the story was well done, if a bit anticlimactic I think. I do wish it had a level or two of just villains being villains. As really exploring what a world without the Justice League would be like. We got a little of that, but I just wanted a bit more as the second half of the story is far more heroic based. There were lots of plot twists and crisscrosses which was amazing however! Some random thoughts: Omega beams chasing through the speed-force! "Look at all those posers--I liked Kite-Man before it was cool! Kite-Man...heck yeah!" Driving is utterly impossible. I've taken to riding a bike everywhere. I could fly...but this is better. Plus it has a turn radius and a bell. My main crew is Captain Boomerang and the Riddler. I take them everywhere and when I must fly I use Banshee. I love Boomer and I absolutely love Riddler's Rebirth design--kinda hoping we get that physically...seems lazy enough for Lego to release. Aside from liking his design, Riddler's search ability is necessary for those quests where you have to track down like five people--they're otherwise impossible to find! Calendar-Man blowing up my phone with his dumb-ass texts about his made-up holiday. Literally stealing candy from babies...I love you TT Games! Last one: I've never seen/used the Camera function before (Although I think it was in Marvel 2). Still it's super fun to use, and at times utterly hilarious. I've been thinking of whipping up a spontaneous Caption Contest--members screenshot some pics from the game and then we put up a thread in Licensed for others to write captions for? Prizes would be tags. Anyone interested in this?

    I’m loving the game so far! Particularly the amazing voice cast and writing. I’ve played five or six levels so far, and all of them have been both engaging and surprising. I’ve not really free-roamed yet, but the hubs look spectacular and I love that you are required to traverse the hub to continue the story missions. I will say though, driving is super difficult and all the cars seem to have the turn radius of a mountain. Other random thoughts: I love the main theme song from the menu and the Hall of Doom. It’s probably from somewhere, but it’s spectacular! The level/set design is awesome—I particularly love the Iceberg Lounge. The last Lego game, aside from Dimensions, that I’ve played was Marvel 1–so I’m a bit surprised at how many actions/abilities can now be used with just a few controller buttons...although I find it annoying when you keep accidentally shrinking or growing when you are trying to do something else. The character creator is great! But my imagination was limited at the start—I basically just made Catman...the creator at the start seems rather limited and I didn’t want to make a half-baked character from the get-go.

    DC Superheroes 2019 - Rumours, Speculation & Discussion

    There’s a big difference between a Theme and a Themed Wave. The first wave of DC Superheroes was a Batman themed wave. We’ve had a Justice League themed wave. The upcoming wave of Marvel Superheroes is a Spider-Man themed wave (again). Having a wave be themed does not mean it constitutes a new Theme entirely. I wouldn’t put any stalk in the “rumor” that we are getting a solely focused Batman Theme—we already got that in 2006. Everything is under the banner of “____ Superheroes” now—it’s just that at any given time some things can take up more space under that banner than others.

    Yes...? I didn’t buy those games, but from the reporting I’ve read and researched about this game—I believe that to be the case.

    LEGO DC Villains (Videogame)

    From my understanding, the Deluxe Edition includes access to the DLC content and it is also packaged with the Lex minifigure. So any "basic" Deluxe Edition copy should include DLC and Lex. Certain stores/websites offer additional pre-order bonuses (such as a tin-case from Target or early DLC access via Walmart). i.e. I don't think it is necessary to pre-order the game itself, rather one just needs to buy the Deluxe Edition to get the figure. I'm on the working assumption that he is literally packaged with the physical Deluxe Edition copy of the game (apparently LMSH-2 did the same thing with its Giant-Man figure).

    Anyways, just as a refresher—this thread is not for spoilers. Talked about leaked figures all you want; there is no need to extrapolate that conversation into one of leaked set photos/plots etc. So, talk about the sets here, not the films. Thanks!

    That would be an option... If the DLC packs had not already been named.

    LEGO DC Villains (Videogame)

    Me don't like that roster. There are some really cool additions...and utterly baffling omissions. No Mad Hatter. No Man-Bat. No Killer Moth?! That doesn't even make any sense--there's a physical version of him and the Scarecrow in this game is the version from the same set! Why would you just leave him out? Those three have been in every game since its inception! I used to think that the TT games would essentially be required to include the latest (applicable) characters who could be found physically in the brick--because kids (or myself ) who own them would expect to be able to play as them in the game. It would also explain why there's just boring lackluster physical figure designs (such as Penguin and Killer Croc) oddly included next to highly detailed in-game-only characters. But what the hell! This makes no sense--obviously they must be picking names out of a hat at random. For a villain game, there are way, too many heroes taking up the roster for my taste. I know the Flash is popular--but we need him to take up three different character slots? Multiple robins? Multiple Wonder Women? Uh! That and no Catman. I'm just really disappointed!

    I really hope the free roam is more akin to Batman 2 than Batman 3... I hate it when TT games either smashes locations together (in a horribly ugly waste of space) or gives us these dinky planets with literally nothing happening. Half those Lantern planets were basically empty rocks. Honestly I would be fine with just Gotham and Metropolis if they were full worlds. Granted, juding from the trailers, it looks like we are getting tiny smashed locations.
