    DC Superheroes 2023 - Rumors & Discussion

    As long as it also includes a Joker...

    Lego Licensed Parts available from Bricks & Pieces

    With the Bricklink MOC Pop-up shop, I like the way they can send the parts list to Pick a Brick. It is a bit frustrating that there isn't an option to just get everything from Pick a Brick, but I can understand why they didn't want to do that and support marketplace sellers. However, I wonder if it points to eventually being able to point Bricklink wish lists to Pick a Brick, which would be very convenient.

    Lord of the Rings 2023

    There were some transparent pieces that I thought might have been 3D printed for the concept too. But yes, likely some non-produced parts, but that doesn't mean they couldn't in the future. It would also just be good to see what they had in the interior and get a better sense of the model with instructions. Or maybe a more detailed overview and photo collection.

    Lord of the Rings 2023

    It looks really good, and it would be amazing if they released instructions for it, but I agree that the realized model is better, as the detail is more interesting, any it has greater presence due to the additional height. Love that they kept the visual style and color palette the same though.

    Lord of the Rings 2023

    I would be surprised if they chose to release play sets now. Targeting children with these sets is unlikely to bring new kids to LEGO, and do for those that do get sets, they are probably just moving spend from one then to another. Whereas, if they do teen/adult focused D2Cs or dioramas, then there's a lot more teens/adults who won't be into LEGO who are likely to buy into the new theme. Especially if they can do a lower price point option. I could see a case for battle packs, add they have potential to be bought in large numbers by T/AFOLs.

    If you choose the 'this is a gift' option, they will always ship it in a cardboard box.

    LEGO #21344 - Orient Express

    That's a real shame, as it would have been a great Christmas activity. Still, as long as it's not cancelled, there is always the Christmas after.

    Super Mario 2023 - Rumors & Discussion

    It's such a great set, and actually nice that they've done it at this scale for this price, rather than go crazy and make $200. Of course, at this size and price there's always the temptation to get two or three.... No, one will DEFINITELY be enough!

    Wizarding World 2023 - Rumors & Discussion

    You know, I don't even mind that much about the trio appearing a lot, because they are often varied, they appear in those scenes, and you get a load of other characters too for variety. It is, as you say, pretty good. In fact, in a decent number of sets where you do get them, they're essentially other characters through polyjuice potion, so ignore the alternate face and you don't even have them there. They're definitely doing a great job on that front. The insistence of shoehorning lead characters that aren't connected to sets in other themes is very frustrating though. As is focusing on things related solely to lead characters at the expense of variety.

    Wizarding World 2023 - Rumors & Discussion

    I don't care what figures they produce in 2024, as long as there is an Owen Grady in a Jurassic World set and a Batman and Joker combo. The fans are crying out for these and they don't even appear in sets that they have nothing to do with!

    Winter Village Sets - Rumours and Discussion

    The interior of the lodge looks good. Much nicer than I expected for the depth of the building at the top, and the extended base at the bottom helps a lot. I think the small skating pond and jetty are lovely. Looking forward to it.

    Modular Building Sets - Rumours and Discussion

    Not convinced by the seven year repeating pattern of larger modulars. I suspect Assembly Square has sold really well and they want a flagship set that entices people to buy more. As a result, I'd be surprised (but probably pleased) if the new set was a single building, as that doesn't feel as welcoming or enticing as a collection of multiple buildings. Also, from a product perspective, they are doing large single buildings in the Architecture line, which may attract a different casual/adult audience.

    Teaser of the new LEGO Creator Pirates GWP 40597

    I'd like to see the other side of it, in the hope that there's something clever there. But it doesn't look much like a wrecked ship to me. It would be a better concept that a tiny tower though.
