  1. I saw that promobricks recently went to the Cologne Lego store that reopened and they had the CMFs presorted by figure, but were limiting purchase to one of each type. I'm curious if this is unique to the Cologne location, or if others will be doing that Edit: Commentor said the Berlin store confirmed by phone they are also doing this

    Modding the Barracuda thread

    Is it possible to get a copy of the original pirate bay entry that you guys have masterfully recreated? I'm wanting to use it as inspiration, and would love to get a closer look

    Lego Shop already had an order backlog before the set launched. I think with so many people stay at home, physical stores closed, and the double VIP points promotion that just ended, they've seen a big increase in online orders. I placed an order for US delivery on March 28th, shipping label wasn't generated until April 4th, and it wasn't picked up by FedEx until April 6th. I ordered Pirate Bay a few minutes into April 1st, so best case I'm not expecting any movement on the order until tomorrow at the earliest, if not a few more days or even into next week. I miss the Lego Stores being open, as I have one only a few miles from the house I haven't made any specific plans for my build. I do plan to build it out as the bay, then convert it to the ship. At that point I want to try to rebuild a custom version of the Bay/docks with what I have on-hand. Not identical to the original Ideas, but something to put a building or two back. I might also customize the ship, change some parts/colors. I want to display it with 6271 Imperial Flagship and Renegade Runner, both of which I just rebuilt for the first time in probably 25+ years

    Super Mario 2020 - Rumors & Discussion

    I don't get classic NES style Mario from this figure. It looks more like a Duplo figure based on the Brickhead style dressed as Mario

    Super Mario 2020 - Rumors & Discussion

    At this point I'm going to assume no minifigs until we see them, but that would be nice This is an interesting and novel concept, but I'm not sure what I think about it or how it will be received. It feels like this set is going after kids who might not already be into LEGO, but enjoy games and Mario. So it will be interesting to see how it does. I'm not sure how I feel about the style of Mario. It seem just seems far off from most of the recent versions of Mario. Blocky and more like a Duplo figure

    I know this theme is Super Mario not Mario Kart, but I'd really love at least one of the sets to have karts

    I was just curious what issues there might be. I think they can move forward without having it finalized. It's not uncommon to see companies request trademarks long after a product or brand has been on the market

    Super Mario 2020 - Rumors & Discussion

    I never claimed anything other than anecdotal, easily clued into with the specified sample size of 2 nephews, though I probably should have counted the 3rd. He likes Mario too, it just wasn't on his christmas list. However I didn't approach it with much of a bias other than curiosity. You seem to be coming at it with a negative bias against not just the Super Mario theme, but any theme that is not one of "your" themes. If it wasn't Mario, Trolls, and Minions it proably still wouldn't be additional Star Wars, Space, and Castle. TLG tries to keep their offerings diverse and what's popular, which is why there are always movie tie-ins.

    Super Mario 2020 - Rumors & Discussion

    My nephews (7 & 8) were all about Mario last year for Christmas. It's still a very strong property. They also like getting the Pokemon Mega sets. Unless their tastes have changed, I think they'll be really excited about this theme, and they are right in the middle of TLG target demographic. As someone who's first love game console was the NES (wasn't my first, but the first I really got into), I'm excited to see what they do with this line. You mentioned earlier some of the other tie-ins, I think my niece (almost 5) might like the Trolls line, she was big into it after the last movie and she's just getting old enough for LEGO. Not sure if any of them are into Minions right now, but that also has a new movie, so we'll see. Though my partner has expressed interest in one of the Minions sets, and she usually only wants NASA type space sets, plus the occasional dragon or beast

    This has been officially teased by LEGO and Nintendo, and I would assume Mario and Pokemon are entirely seperate licenses. Isn't Pokemon a joint venture partially owned by Nintendo versus Mario being solely Nintendo's?

    New LEGO Awesome Activity Book with Pirate minifigure

    Ollie's Bargain Outlet near me carries these right now for $2.99. Currently they have this pirate, Superman, Ninjago, and Star Wars (R2). I've also seen Batman and a few others in the past. I regularly check there for minifig books. Five Below is also know to carry minifig books, but they charge $4.99
