    Thank you @Scarilian!

    Marvel Superheroes 2022 - Rumors & Discussion

    For me there is a fine line between between letting too much out of the bag, and dropping hints to get people interested. Personally, I think that they should have released at least a couple of accurate NWH tie-in sets. I am quite happy waiting for sets if it means some other folk got to enjoy their movie experience more, but feel we could have received at least some of the the villains that appeared in the trailer. I do get a kick out of being surprised by movie appearances that I didn't see coming. I don't do social media, and I don't view websites other than tech companies and LEGO, so it is really easy for me to avoid spoilers. This meant that I wasn't aware of some of the appearances in NWH, other than those that were dropped here (wouldn't have known about AG or TM otherwise) and showed up in the trailer. I now skip the eurobrick threads until after movies have released, and only browse for admin posts, @Scarilian's updated list posts, or comments from FalconFan. There are two sides to every coin, some of us just like not knowing anything about movie before we watch it, some people don't mind knowing a little about the movie, and other people don't seem to mind knowing everything about the movie. Agree with this. They could have done at least some accurate sets with GG and DO, and then released a second wave down the track with AG SM/TM SM/Lizard/Electro etc.

    Yeah, I ordered my Eternals sets straight from LEGO, and have resorted to that for a few of the new releases, including the Daily Bugle and the FRIENDS apartment sets. I normally also get a discount from Toyworld, but they aren't getting the stock down here for the sets I'm interested in at this stage, which is why I have been going to LEGO directly. My minifigs arrive this coming week, also have a box on pre-order. Haven't shopped at Toyco in a couple of years now.

    I've been going into Toyworld weekly. Just saw a few minutes before that Toyco had them in stock, so should have mine in a day or two. Also pre-ordered a box, so will let you know the distribution. I also wish that they included less of the what if characters, though I wouldn't have minded as much if they included The Collector. Really want a Agatha Harkness minifig I'd love any of these characters in any form, but also prefer when they are closer to comics than the movies. I have the 2015 Winter Soldier, but I had always assumed him to be Winter Soldier based, specifically at the end of the car chase scene. Learnt something new reading your post

    I also BrickLinked the pieces I needed, which were only about a dozen in total, so built the 89 GWP. Have both '66 batmobiles, the 89, the new small tumbler and the Batfleckmobile all lined up in my display cabinet. Just waiting on the The Batman to round out the collection. @Moon_Knight - nice!

    I like your choice. Mine would be; Lady Blackhawk, Hawk and Dove, Dark Archer, Zatanna As far as The Batman wave is concerned, overall very happy with it. I'll be getting most of the sets day 1, with the exception of the Selina Kyle chase as there are no exclusive characters.

    Sure, might be a badly kept secret, but one I still wouldn't have spoilt if it hadn't been for people not using spoiler tags. I have no issues whatsoever with it being discussed at all, but come on, spoiler tags exist for a reason, and that is what those of us that don't like spoilers have always said Exactly! Some of us don't spend time trying to find out about a movie we are going to watch before it comes out. Wouldn't have been the case if people followed the rules to begin with, so the point you are trying to make is moot...

    Still annoyed about inconsiderate people "blurting" it out on this forum. I avoid the internet (I only visit bookmarked tech/LEGO sties), so if it hadn't been for some inconsiderate individuals on here it would have bee a great surprise when watching the movie/trailer. Going forward I'll just avoid this site as well when the next big Marvel movie comes up for release. Not sure why it is so hard for some individuals to understand that some of use want to know about the leaks for budget reasons and get far more enjoyment from a movie that we haven't seen yet. I now skip so many pages trying to avoid leaks that I might just as well not bother with this thread anymore.

    Can you put that in spoiler tags. I don't want to know what might happen in a trailer. You continuously seem to miss this point

    Marvel Superheroes 2021 - Rumors & Discussion

    Exactly! I make sure I watch everything I care about before I visit these forums because of the number of inconsiderate individuals blurting out details I want to discover for myself. Won't be on here until after I've watched BW tomorrow night.

    Vey well analysed. This has already been my most expensive Marvel year to date, and it it's not letting up.

    I don't see your point. 50 minutes is a lot of time out of the day for those of us that work and have young kids. Don't follow other media, so your second comment is also redundancy. I guess I can see why it is easy for someone without other responsibilities to assume that everyone has time to drop everything in life when an episode comes out, but that is not the way the world works when you grow up. This probably wouldn't even have been a point of discussion if people that have time to follow others on sm had the extra three seconds available to use spoiler tags. Thank you!

    I believe it is the following Monday, so gives people about 5 days to see the show. I am just grateful that we get the show in NZ before all the other countries as it means I almost certainly get a chance to see it before others start leaking spoilers. The last two pages prove that it is very easy for a spoiler to break into the general chat because some people are either ignorant/foolish/selfish and start replying without the tags. I think a hard and fast "Monday following the episode" rule is ideal. Any leaks or discussion about properties not yet released should be banned on this thread.

    I have literally skipped the last few pages, and only look for your or FF1414's post just to be sure someone doesn't ruin anything for me. I enjoy watching a show or a movie and thinking, hey, I didn't know they were going to be a cameo or that was going to happen. There are a couple of people who's posts I completely skip over without reading purely because I know that they are more likely to drop spoilers. Yes, I am up-to-date with all things MCU, but I can still understand that there are people who may not have had a chance to catch the latest episode yet.

    I like the Hulk-buster mechs too, so glad I'm not the only one. Besides, we have so many sets this year with great minifigs that even if the odd one sucks that is OK. Exactly. Keeping in mind that Marvel has a final say on what minifigs etc. we get in the sets, and also has final say in choosing the IP that get sets. I am definitely not surprised that the animated series is the one that gets the most sets. My daughter wants the Marvel mechs over any of the friends sets, so there is always an audience in unexpected places. We've bought almost every single mech that has come out, and she still isn't bored of them. As an AFOL I prefer building and structural sets, but we typically get those in the more expensive sets, which I buy for me.
