    10302 Optimus Prime Rumors

    It's been delayed to June (not sure exactly when), so I assume we'll probably get something halfway through May or later.

    [MOC] Honda City Turbo & Motocompo Scooter

    [MOC] Honda City Turbo by Admiraltyphoon, on Flickr The Honda City was a popular subcompact hatchback released in 1981 for the Japanese market, but it did get to the West under the name of Honda Jazz in 1982, followed by the City Turbo the same year. I always thought it was a good model to remake in bricks, with surprisingly little to no other minifig-scale builds by others, and it ended up being a good lesson in hinges and angles when it came to doing the bonnet/hood. [MOC] Motocompo Scooter by Admiraltyphoon, on Flickr [MOC] Honda City Turbo by Admiraltyphoon, on Flickr The boot can hinge up, and whole roof can easily lift as well to show the interior with the big space at the rear to fit in its most known function: a Motocompo Foldable Scooter! [MOC] Motocompo Scooter by Admiraltyphoon, on Flickr The Honda Motocompo is a mini scooter that was produced and sold between 1981 and 1983, and was designed to fit in the trunks of its cars. It folds up into a clean, 45kg (or 17 pieces in this case) rectangle on wheels for commuters in Japanese urban spaces. The main aspect for me was mainly to make a model with rolling wheels after seeing the Creator rover drone using the same wheel technique.

    Disney Properties 2022 - Rumors & Discussion

    More pics of Buzz have shown up in the usual places, this time focusing on the backpack. Surprising to see that it's an entirely separate part with 2 antistuds, and with very detailed printing to boot - the rear part of the wings is also printed with the hazard stripe, so thankfully they aren't blank like the last time we saw it. 2 minifig leaks and they're very detailed, which makes me wonder if the set build budget will suffer a bit or if these sets are gonna be stellar.

    Marvel Superheroes 2022 - Rumors & Discussion

    Even if there was some data on popularity/market for X-men, Avengers and Spiderman are still much more popular right now with both kids and adults thanks to the mainstream media, with the latter probably at its highest peak with NWH and Spiderverse in these 2 years if you will. It makes more sense for them to ride out this wave of popularity as much as possible and then start with the X-men the moment they join the MCU, since there'll be new fans on top of the "veteran" ones who will still be waiting for lego to do more sets on them. As for the $500 set, my bet is either on a "Definitive" Avengers tower or Asgard

    Would be very interesting especially if they do the whole underground hall of armor, and honestly I feel it's a good candidate for a future D2C set (next year is IM3's 10th anniversary, or even further in the future if they wanna do some sort of "Iron Man Legacy" type of set).

    I wouldn't be so quick to dismiss it - a while ago we got our first look at some Lightyear toys: https://www.cbr.com/disney-pixar-lightyear-mattel-merchandise/ And buzz does indeed seem to have grey wings - now whether they're actually grey in the movie or just a case of early concept art is another matter. What weirds me out with this fig is how big the armor is, making his shoulders look disproportionate, not to mention the plainness of the armor & wings is weirdly contrasted with the detailed torso & legs.

    Weirdly enough it looks like trans. dark blue, but I'm happy either way. I know many still want a proper ronin/Natasha figs, but this is still a great pack.

    So it seems the rumor of that laser shark set with a certain greek god was fake...a shame, but still happy you get both Thors in a relatively cheap set!

    Wowowow another HoA set? Sounds amazing! Kinda hoping Ivan gets his bird! I also hope they go a bit crazy with the interior of the sanctum set, but I'm sure the main 2 pieces will be the entrance stairs and the top roof with the window.

    [MOC] Ultimate Hulkbuster

    Taking inspiration from more than 8 different designs from across comics, MCU, concept art, and games, I designed this hefty Stark piece of machinery! [MOC] Ultimate Hulkbuster by Admiraltyphoon, on Flickr [MOC] Ultimate Hulkbuster by Admiraltyphoon, on Flickr What was before a MOD to the IW set, the main challenge for me was also to prove that the 2020 6x6 dish head could be implemented well in a hulkbuster design compared to the actual set. [MOC] Ultimate Hulkbuster by Admiraltyphoon, on Flickr [MOC] Ultimate Hulkbuster by Admiraltyphoon, on Flickr I called it "Ultimate" because of the variety of designs it takes inspiration from, but also because I'm going to consider it my definitive version for quite a while (unless Lego brings out another specific piece that inspires me to rework it yet again). [MOC] Ultimate Hulkbuster by Admiraltyphoon, on Flickr If you're curious about instructions, I've put them up on Rebrickable! https://rebrickable.com/mocs/MOC-91791/Admiraltyphoon/ultimate-hulkbuster/#details

    [MOC] The Red Italian

    Amazing! I don't think anyone has ever made the Multipla in brick before. I always found it odd in a cute way when I was a child. And I have to agree, the design is spot on!

    Interesting - I'm curious to see how they pull off a mech-sized glider. Also every time a new spidey mech shows up I keep hoping it's either of the SP//DR designs. It's astounding to me that they've had 2 canon designs (one of which actually showed up in a movie that was well-received) and we still don't have official sets of them.

    10302 Optimus Prime Rumors

    This is some sort of fever dream, I never thought TFs would be licensed to Lego. There could be an assumption it's the G1 design to get a wider fan & casual audience, but considering it's in May and with the fact that we might be seeing merch for the Rise of the Beasts movie show up soon (the delay to 2023 was so abrupt Hasbro couldn't stop the retailers from halting sales until next year), I'm inclined to believe we'll be seeing his movie design, especially since it's basically the G1 one but with movie detailing.

    iron man Mk1, War Machine, Star lord's, Thor's, and Cap's helmets as well as Ultron's head (with extra parts to do either blue or red light) would be good candidates to follow the iron man helmet series (assuming it sold well), object-wise I can only think of Redwing, the orb, Mysterio's drones, and the nano gauntlet.
