    [CATC] Monster Racers

    This is one of the best posts I have seen on Eurobricks in a while! If this were a real LEGO theme, I would certainly buy it. The use of pumpkin pieces as wheels for the Headless racer car is low-key brilliant!

    [MOC] Toa Nuva on Mata Nui

    Wow, this is awesome! I've seen plenty of brick-built Toa MOCs over the years, but never have I see one where there's also a full-on brick-built background for them! Nice work!

    Lego Ideas 90th Anniversary Fan Vote

    Well... It seems like my prediction ended up being accurate. I fully expected they would make a large D2C Castle right after the poll ended, and as it turns out, I was right. It just seemed like the most obvious choice and the easiest to market. Congrats to all the Castle fans who finally will get the set they've been waiting for so long, but... this also puts the final nail in the coffin for Space and Bionicle...

    Rumoured New In-House Theme Discussion

    Are those rumors actually reliable, or is this another case of some random user posting fake rumors online only to admit lying and then request to be banned? That just recently happened, so I am a bit skeptical about any new rumors. Four sets and one Brickheadz doesn't exactly scream "New Original Theme" to me either.

    Dang, what's taking them so long for just one set? The Poll was held all the way back in February of last year. Assuming the set choice was made immediately after the poll closed, I don't see what could have possibly taken then so long to design the set. The thought that it will probably be revealed only In May at the earliest and most likely even later than that is just mind boggling to me.

    Future Castle Sets?

    For the record, we just recently had the Baracuda Bay set, which is basically the best Pirates Anniversary Tribute set you could ask for. I think making another super big set for that would be kind of redundant, unless they make it an Imperials-focused set instead (which I am not sure Imperials is a popular enough subtheme for them to consider it). My guess would be something more like: 40% Castle 30% Space 20% Bionicle 10% Pirates

    I really like the use of the Bionicle Skull Spider mask as a shoulder pad for the Big Orc!

    Fantasy Pirates: A LEGO World Builder Project

    Apparently, once a world gets selected for development, it get publically removed from the site so it can be developed more "secretly", I guess. But as someone who kept up with the platform, I can say that the original submission was titled "The Missing Piece: A LEGO Christmas", barely had any presentation images, and got a whomping 7 likes . I think that tells you everything you need to know about this platform and what they select from it... If you are dead serious about bringing "Timequake" too life (sounds like a really cool title btw!), I would suggest writing a book of sorts based on it instead. I know it doesn't sound as exciting as a Movie or TV Show, but hey, we all gotta work within our limitations.

    Fantasy Pirates: A LEGO World Builder Project

    This one turned out to be the winner (out of 20 projects that qualified for the pitch fest): Personally, this feels like a big missed opportunity to me... Out of all the ideas that were submitted, this one was honestly one of the least interesting ones. I honestly don't know what prompted then to select this one over all the others...

    I mean... obviously, but why not just straight up release it now in early 2022?

    We are already passed the 1 year anniversary of the poll, and we still have no clue about what set are we getting... Why is LEGO waiting so long to reveal the thing? I do not believe producing a set takes that long, and neither have they focused their resources on building up hype for the set. I feel like it might just get revealed at a completely random date and promptly forgotten about as soon as it hits the shelves (especially if turns out to be a disappointing choice).

    Fantasy Pirates: A LEGO World Builder Project

    Thank you for still being interested in my idea! So what basically happened was that I tried to pitch my idea to LEGO, but I got turned down simply because I was "under 18", which also resulted in my World Builder account getting taken down. I was very disappointed with that, but I still held out hope that I could pitch it again this year... But after seeing which projects had ended up being selected from the the pitch fest my world was part of, I lost all my hope in the platform. From 20+ incredible original ideas, they only approved a single one, and it was honestly the lamest possible choice they could have went with. So honestly, I don't really have that much hope left in the platform, so I decided to take the matter into my own hands and write my own fantasy novel based on the idea. I wrote about eight chapters thus far, and hope to publish the book before the end of this year. I don't think a novel based on my idea would have been nearly as successful as, say, TLG turning it into a LEGO theme, but hey, at least I'll have full creative control to do whatever I want. So yeah, if you are still interested in the idea, and appreciate more serious storytelling like I do, I feel like you might want to check out my novel whenever I get around to publishing it. Do note, however, that the novel will be its own thing, not related to LEGO in any way.
  13. I am very skeptical about the whole "LEGO wants both boys and girls to play with mini dolls" idea. For the record, we only got that announcement like a few months ago, and it seems to me like they just kind of rushed out in order to get a new theme with that idea. And will the theme feature bright "girlish" colors, or will it be like a normal theme, but with mini dolls? I have never been particularly a minidoll "hater" myself but this rumor strikes me like a weird experiment that has the potential to fail miserably. The prices for those sets also look unusually high for an original theme, which also could be a big turn away point for many people. But hey, don't judge a book by its cover I guess. If this rumor is true, than I'll wait until we get actual pictures to pass my final judgement.

    You know, now that I think about it, a special CMF series based on Classic themes would honestly be amazing, and would more or less please everybody. Why not just remake classic characters with a more modern design? They already did that with a few Minifigures such as Johnny Thunder already, why couldn't they make an entire series of Minifigures like that? And while we're at it, throw in a special "chase" minifigure like Mr. Gold for good measure. A special gold edition Classic Spacemen, perhaps?

    Lego Ideas 90th Anniversary Fan Vote

    Last year LEGO held a poll where fans could vote for their favorite vintage theme to be made into a special 90th anniversary LEGO tribute set. They didn't say anything about there being any new Mr. Gold type figure. If there was, it would probably be end up being included in the set that we will get, but not as a part of any upcoming CMF series.
