    Legends of Chima 2013

    The presentation was supposedly only for 1st half year and there's a action theme slot in 2nd half year too. So the Polar theme could still be in there. It's not from the actual article but in the comments to this article. It's almost at the bottom of the coments

    Ninjago 2013

    Lets look back to Atlantis. It was the predecessor of NinjaGo and in january 2011 it did get a small, final, wave of five sets. In the same release Ninjago stormed into the lego universe. I don't remember with how many sets but it was well more than the five Atlantis got. And before Atlantis there were Power Miners and it too ended with a small wave simultanious with the big release of Atlantis. So the course of action has been for a while that the big action theme from the previous year is let go with a small release at the same time as the new one gets a big launch with tons of advertisments. Looking at that the rumors do make perfect sense. Legends of Chima (hereafter: LoC) is most likely the theme replacing NinjaGo. Rumors say that NinjaGo will get around 6 sets and no spinners. This fits with the previous theme getting a small release. The no spinners rumor fits with the rumor of there being a game part (Speedorz according to some claim) to LoC just like NinjaGo had Spinjitzu. Lego want to shift the kids attention from NinjaGo and Spinjitzu to LoC and Speedorz and new spinners would delay that shift. I have a hard time seeing TMNT as the replacement for NinjaGo. It's a License theme and even though it has similar foundations in the story (NinjaGo might actually have been inspired by TMNT) I still think the storielines and characters are different enough to not cause any confusion. Even though they're ninjas the heroes are turtles and the ninjas are actually found amongst the bad guys. Hadn't there been non-human characters on the bad guy side too it would almost be NinjaGo in reverse... So no TMNT is not the NinjaGo replacement. There's also the new "Galaxy Quest" rumor and it sure fits in there presuming that Speedorz is the Spinjitzu equivalent for LoC. Finally on the rumor list there's Polar Xxpress. In the Brickset posting there were said to be no polar theme. But the Lego Rep presentation that is done now is only for first half year (january - may) and there's an Action theme slot in summer/fall (depending on country) whitch might be this polar theme. So here's my prediction on how the release schedule for the rumored sets will look like this: January: NinjaGo LoC TMNT "Space Quest" 2HY (june-august): LoC Polar Xxpress

    Ninjago 2013

    Well looking back at the last few years the big action of the previous year has ended with a january release simultanius with the first wave of the replacement theme. However Ninjago is not replaced by a TMNT theme.

    Ninjago 2012

    AFAIK it takes around two years to develop a set so they would have needed to cancel the cancellation at about the same time as the theme was launched...

    Ninjago 2012

    I agree. Ninjago being replaced by a TMNT theme just doesn't make any sense at all. NinjaGo is ending because it was the plan from the start. And I think it's a good thing they're sticking with that plan because doing an unplanned continuation based only on sales/viewers/whatever always turn out badly,

    There's a new series on Nickelodeon starting september 29 (I think). That would be a why.

    Lego Polar Xxpress 2013

    Would be nice but I havent seen them do much research in Ice Road Truckers though... BTW "legomilk" are you sure that the name isn't "Polar X-pedition" like that new ride at Legoland Billund?

    I think it's safe to asume that is not a typo. If it is, someone has messed up big time. After all it's a trademark registration and you don't mess such a thing up. You just don't.

    The games "theme" isn't canceled. It's being streamlined containing fewer and, hopefully, better games. And I think Maya Mystica weren't canceled it was redesigned into that the Hobbit game.

    Kingdoms 2012?

    I would take anything that is said by Lego's customer service with a whole truck of salt. I believe that we've seen that information from that customer service to be unreliable before. Also I work at a store selling lego and 100% of the current Lego Kingdoms theme (yes, even the last wave with Mill Village Raid!!) has been put up on the "exit-list". and thats why the sets are marked sold out. Because they are and they won't return into stock.

    Kingdoms 2012?

    What they said was that Lego Castle would continue. But whatever was meant by that is debateable. It doesn't say that we'll be getting any new sets besides Kingdoms Joust and I believe that what they meant was that it would continue via the Kingdoms joust set. Yes. I think that Castle/kingdoms will take a hiatus while LotR is running and I have a hard time seeing that LotR would continue far beyond 2013. I believe we'll see the final wave of LotR/the hobbit sets in december of 2013 and canceled in 2014 and then Castle/Kingdoms will probably do a comeback in summer or fall 2015.

    Kingdoms 2012?

    I expect Kingdoms to go on clearance any day now. We got the exit-list at work earlier this week and all the Kingdoms sets were on it...

    LEGO ReBrick is up&running

    Like some others I just can't create a profile. Am I required to enter some secret password into the "About me" text box or what? When I click the "Create profile" button it just highlights the "about me" box. And it doesn't matter what I type into that @%¤#"£$ text box...!
