    I'm pretty sure merch from Bandai had R2 flying with Poe

    I'm pretty sure there were some regular Henchmen in the Hank Pym trailer
  3. We're probably gonna go back to 2 waves per year with the larger/exclusive sets spread out throughout the year for the next few years, outside of TV releases we'll be out of the big movie merch roll-outs of recent years, as well as Anniversaries such as 20 years of Lego Star Wars, well unless there's a sudden big push for the ESB anniversary, but that doesn't seem likely outside of some of the sets being sourced from ESB.

    Now that the new trailer is out, I'm even more irked we got the Death Star turret instead of a Orbak set at the same price point.

    The Iron Man looks pretty good, perfect addition for my Hall of Armour, plus the mech might be good for a more bigfig-scale Hulkbuster. Thor is a good start, the blank legs are dissapointing though, but I probably have some knight/warrior legs to fix that. Black Panther is fine, the only real addition I could think of is toe printing for claws and some texture on the legs, and even then I think that's a nitpick. Still unsure on Caps design overall, so the courts are out on that one. Anya Corazon is a nice suprise, the white torso threw me off at first though. Yeah, the AIM designs are just dull, that's on the game though, not Lego. Hawkeye is pretty good, once again only leg straps could make it better, maybe the arms from Ethan Hunt to give him his T Shirt look he currently has.
  6. A factor, yes, but personally I don't think it was a notable one compared to the other 3. As for Rogue One, I was going off the critical response compared to the prior 3, I wasn't trying to tread on anyone's toes here even if it isn't my cup of tea.
  7. Firstly, from my observations I'm seriously doubting your claim that there's no hype. Secondly, Solo underperformed due to a lackluster marketting campaign, a very troubled and costly production and from a critical persepective being the weakest film since TFA, which I kinda agree with. As for the Lego, Star Wars is still a top performer, from both the 2018 annual results and according to the report in September about the first half of the years admidst profits somewhat dropping which leads into my final point. Times have changed and as previously mentioned toys aren't selling as well as they used to across the board with kids looking to digital stuff/games like Fortnite, with Lego even getting to try that outlet with Boost (I think) and Hidden Side, as well as having strong... Competitors isn't really the word with Marvel cause Disney ownership, Rivalry maybe? Anywho, what I'm saying is there are other brands now that have been built up. Basically, I don't think there's anything to worry about. Lego Star Wars will still go on.

    For the most part I like the series, my only big complaints are a lack of Barda, as well as Cheetah, Sinestro and Rebirth Superman feeling a bit boring for me. I get another Superman was pretty inevitable and he'd use a lot of existing parts, but we could have got something like Kingdom Come Supes, or maybe the black suit from the comics, complete with Old Luke/Sirius hairpiece in black. I get why Cheetah and Sinestro were used too, but admittedly neither are my favorites, I'd have liked to have gotten Circe from the current JLD story in Cheetahs place, and maybe one of the other Lanterns like Larfleeze or Atrocitus, maybe even a hero as a lantern instead of retro Sinestro. Aside from that, if I was gonna get really nitpicky, I'd say put someone else in Metamorpho's place, he really feels like a bit of a niche selection. Maybe have Constantine or Zatanna in his place, they wouldn't need new pieces like Metamorpho. I'm really suprised we're getting TDKR Joker though, I'd have thought he was a bit too dark for Lego.

    You're kinda right, normally in the comics pre-ITSV he didn't have a hat and his mask had more of a stitch pattern, save for maybe a cover or two to the best of my knowledge. It's curious, I have no idea how the licensing would go down so it's possible they might have just tossed a hat and had the webs on him for recognisability.

    Harry Potter 2020 - Rumors & discussion

    There's really not a lot to do so, there's no expansive and growing roster of vehicles and locations they can pull from (Star Wars, DC Comics) and they can't toss in random original creations for sets (Marvel, JP). A lot of HP's sets are locations, most that won't fit into smaller sets. Plus right now the quality of the HP line is very good, it'd be better if the time is taken to preserve that quality.

    Now that you mention it, there is a bit of a smear going onto the hip piece from a edit, my bad then!

    Not sure if anyone has seen, but a new Rey minifig has popped up based on her wearing Finn's jacket in TFA, not sure if it's legit or not.

    Surely just Santa would be fine, he is the most powerful mutant.

    Alright, I like that we're finally getting more comic-based Marvel sets (That aren't Spidey), and since the leaked Thanos is comic-book based I'm hoping the Iron Man from his mech will be too. The Spidey stuff is okay, but not a must buy with repeated villains, unless they're good variants, of course.

    I like the new Anakin, but it really is a missed opportunity to give him a new hairpiece.
