  1. I heard Hasbro just renewed their license, so I wouldn't hold my breath.
  2. Sadly, S20 sounds like a disappointment on the order of S19... And S19, to me, was the worst series probably since S10. To echo what others have said, considering we only get one regular series now, it sucks that Lego is choosing to focus the selection so much on City. I actually liked S18, but this means that the last time we had a solid, regular diverse series was in 2017 with S17. Add to that the price increase, and it's icing on the cake... I became a fan with S1, and I have been collecting for a decade now. However, this theme is starting to veer off from what made me fall in love with it: a varied set of characters that diversified my minifigure collection. If this is going to become a City subtheme, I will be very disappointed and might stop collecting altogether.
  3. Thanks for the info. This is incredibly disappointing. There is a great appeal to completing a series (they even prompt you to do so in the advertising), and this makes that close to impossible for most. I thought Lego had started to realize what a bad taste artificial scarcity creates in its customers.
  4. When you say Mr. Gold like, do you mean equal in rarity, or more like the policeman? I sure hope Lego doesn't pull that "only 5K minifigures released" crap again. At least one per box should be the minimum.
  5. I am so glad the polybag will be available for purchase. Also glad to see we got Vers. I feel bad for those that spent a lot of money on Vers, but in the future please remember that so far the only Marvel and DC figures with exclusive parts that have remained exclusive are those that come in the clam shells, not in the sets. Until we see a year in which they stay exclusive, I'd advise against buying those sets for the figures.
  6. That piece is awesome. I hope it turns out in a series because otherwise I will feel compelled to get the version in the Chinese set by virtue of being a new costumed figure.

    That is very hypocritical of M&R, because I remember he made a very smug video when The Brick Show got their channel suspended for supposedly putting leaked pictures in their channel. Purchasing stolen sets is unquestionably worse.

    More LEGO Ghostbusters in 2020?

    Hmmmm, I wonder what kind of sets we'll get, assuming the rumor is accurate. Could they take another whack at the Ecto-1? Also I have no money in my budget for this theme!
  9. Well, technically there isn't a precedent for a minifig in an exclusive set remaining exclusive. If anything I believe Rocket in 2014 was the only precedent and he turned up in a polybag. I like many others have expected Vers to pop up because she came in an exclusive set and wasn't given away as an exclusive minifig. Granted Lego has clearly not been completely systematic.
  10. Nope, that specific Batman variant remained exclusive and was never seen again. Also, if I recall correctly the packaging for Bard and for Azog were different from those for other SDCC figures and lacked the word "exclusive" or something like that. Superman does seem to break this pattern, but that was back in 2011.

    DC Superheroes 2019 - Rumours, Speculation & Discussion

    This set looks like a must-have to me! The high-quality pictures would need to be terrible for me to be dissuaded!
  12. I don't believe this guy scammed them from Lego, unless he used multiple addresses. Lego asks for proof of purchase for replacement pieces for licensed sets and has even flagged people making legitimate claims from the system (I believe there are some posts here with stories like that). I don't Lego would be easily fooled into providing multiples of a licensed torso in a limited set for a clearly fraudulent damaged piece claim. If these people did indeed use the replacement pieces service from Lego, I'd expect them to have purchased them directly. Maybe there was a hiccup with the system and the piece showed up in stock. I'd only expect this to be possible if Lego was producing more of Vers. Otherwise, they wouldn't have had an incentive to make more than 1500 torsos, or whatever the limited quantity was. TLDR: Given the high quantity of torsos I doubt these people scammed them from Lego, and if they did not get them in the set this is a good sign if we want to see the torsos pop up again.
  13. If it's not an all-star series, and if it is called an anniversary series, I wonder what could it be? S18 was similar in both of these regards. I don't think they'll want to do something redundant. I agree with Roebuck that updated versions of classic characters like the S19 Johnny Thunder would be a possibility, but as he mentioned we'd have expected them to save him for such a series. How about counterparts for figures that haven't had any? Something like recolors, gender swaps, or figures that compliment popular figures? For instance, a blue spaceman in the style of the S1 spaceman.
  14. Well, with the SDCC 2014 Rocket he showed up in a polybag eventually. I would expect something similar since it is the only precedent we have.
  15. Ooooooh I missed that! Nice! Crossing my fingers! If this figure remained exclusive, it would break the pattern: historically the only minifigs that remain exclusive are the ones that come separately, not the ones in exclusive sets. (The exception would be last year's Aquaman, who doesn't include exclusive pieces anyways). The guy is trying to sell his 6 minifigs on BL for a non-negligible price. He didn't have Rambeau last time I checked. I don't think he got them from the set. Also, he didn't reply when someone asked if they'll come in an upcoming set...
