  1. Looks good. I wasn't really thinking about getting this, but at this point I'm tempted since I quite like it and I still don't have the new version of Vader. In addition, I'm really happy to see new (relatively) stuff from Empire, I think that's a good sign.
  2. Haven't seen Temple of Doom or BvS, but yes, LotR is absolutely darker than the rest of those films. It's stupid to get wrapped in how dark movies are, but RotK gets pretty dark--they straight up catapult severed heads into Gondor, and even if it's not shown, it's absolutely a little unsettling, especially for 7 year olds.
  3. Kind of a crucial part here though, I must admit. I'd love a full theme, I would probably even trade in Star Wars or perhaps a couple toes for one, but I don't think it has the same cultural appeal with younger kids. I didn't get a chance to watch to watch the trilogy till I was a teenager, whereas I have always loved HP and SW and even wanted Super Heroes sets before I had seen the movies. I think Lego's hesitance to make a full castle theme may speak to the fact that they are worried classic fantasy selling well with children, and they have largely gone adult with that era. LEGO is probably pretty hesitant to make themes that are aimed more for teens, rather than all ages--just look at the difference between Overwatch (even ignoring Blizzard being filled with scumbags) and Minecraft. Then again, it's entirely possible you are right here, maybe kids just have not been given a good chance to get fantasy sets and have not really explored it yet.
  4. I don't know, it kind of depends on how big the theme goes. I know the movies were not particularly loved (though Lego constantly makes sets based off of bad movies, even old ones), but I also feel like they lend themselves pretty well to sets. I don't think the 2012-13 Hobbit sets were particularly good, but there is a lot of potential for improvement to do more. In addition, the figures are insanely expensive, so even if that's not a great metric, it certainly shows there is some demand for more. Now, if Lego just goes the route of one set a year or so, I can see them ignoring the Hobbit, but if we get a full reboot like HP I doubt they would ignore the Hobbit, particularly considering that I really doubt LotR can last for more than 4 years on just the trilogy alone. I know Fantastic Beats (typo, but a hilarious one) was relatively ignored, but the HP films on their own have almost three times as much content to make things off of than the trilogy. I also feel like its worth mentioning that although the Hobbit wasn't loved, it certainly was not absolutely despised or just straight up hated, at least not the way some mediocre franchise films are. Given it's an adaption of a book, it still is an integral part of the LotR universe, and it seems to be for better or for worse, getting the Reddit-Prequels treatment.

    Marvel Superheroes 2022 - Rumors & Discussion

    I'm worried this got lost, but I was joking when I said it was an Among Us reference.

    Marvel Superheroes 2022 - Rumors & Discussion

    I would say they are closer to Among Us than anything. Anyways, the trailer. I don't actually love the Bowie--maybe it's weird, but I kind of just prefer the regular Ravager birds. With that said, if the set looks cool, I might be interested. Regardless of how good the movie is, a well built lego spaceship is a well built lego spaceship.

    Marvel Superheroes 2022 - Rumors & Discussion

    One of the angles on the quinjet makes it look like it's the best version of it ever made, but the other angle makes it look absolutely terrible, and I cannot decide which one it is... I think I need to see more photos to decide, but I'm leaning towards not getting it. The Morbius set is of course absolutely necessary, I might grab the Ghost Rider one if I get a chance and have the cash, and although it's neat, I already quite like the old Hulkbuster, although I must admit, the Bruce is quite good.
  8. I wasn't on EB then but I was paying attention, and IIRC this is correct. We knew the Final Duel was a retail exclusive and had piece count, price, and number, but did not know until it leaked, and we had no idea that there even was something coming for the Transport.
  9. Generally. He doesn’t usually get big scoops, but sometimes he gets things before everyone else does, and doesn’t usually seem to just make random stuff up. I’m willing to buy into it for now, considering no one has disproved it yet.
  10. You know, I'd hazard a fairly reasonable guess that if there is a D2C coming, it certainly isn't going to be coming out until at least May or so. Unless Lego is going nuts about keeping this secretive, I'd assume we would have information about it coming in January or February, or at least a tiny bit more knowledge about what's going on if it were after that. Then again, maybe I'm entirely wrong and we're just in that leak drought time of the year.
  11. Add me to the list of people who would be interested in Luthen's Ship at some point. I haven't been keeping up with Andor (bit burnt out on the miniseries, but I might try it since it's supposed to be good), but that ship looks pretty neat looking, I like the general look of the show, and anything that ties into Rogue One would be neat to get since it may be a while before they return to that. That being said, I suppose at some point Lego will likely return to it, Solo, and the ST.

    LEGO Videogame Tie-Ins - Rumors & Discussion

    Apparently, one of the canceled sets, 76979, was called Battle for Rio. Given Lucio's origin of Brazil, I assume he would have been included in that set, which might still come out of Blizzard can pull themselves together and Lego decides to start making sets again. Provided those two things happen, it would be nice to get a Lucio, seeing as he is one of the few characters that really cannot be made using purist parts. On that note, I messaged Lego a while back and asked about the status of their deliberations over Blizzard. They pretty much said the expected thing, but it caught my eye that the representative I spoke to stated that they would announce their decision publicly, meaning we probably will hear something about this again.

    CM4SCI seems to have shown an image of a minifigure scale Fortnite Battle Bus on his story from the Walmart app. I guess it is happening, just not in the way Greekbricks made it seem.
  15. This is really wonderfully done, I really love the concept and the execution is flawless. I would probably get this if it were a real set. It also raises the question, "How many dated sets could be redone like this?" A lot of them are just ships which get constantly redone, so it would probably have to be something kind of out of the way, like this, the Endor set, or the old Hoth Sets from 2007, 2009, 2010, etc. Anyways, fantastic design.
