    Batman (DC Superheroes) 2024 - Rumors & Discussion

    I feel like maybe everyone is quite a bit more surprised than we should have been at this, there’s really not much else that made a ton of sense at this time in the theme’s lifecycle and the piece count/price other than maybe a BTAS or 2022 Batmobile.
  2. Seems unlikely. I don't think the AT-TE info came out on April first, and Promobricks got some criticism for leaking the actual list as a double-fake-out April fools day gag. I have a feeling they won't do it again, and it seems kinda pointless to do the same joke two years in a row. I also think it worked particularly well last year since many of those sets (the UCS Venator, the Ghost, Republic Gunship) have been heavily requested online for a well, so it seemed kind of like a wish list leak wave. But then again, I'm willing to be surprised.
  3. ...I don't think we know enough about the set to really make this kind of judgement yet, really.
  4. Another good question to ask is why FF would exclusively post that in the LSWLeaks subreddit and not just the standard r/legoleak? Maybe he did and it got taken down, but I think it's a bit odd that he would go there. I've never gotten the feeling that he heavily prefers any one theme over another, and if he did, it seems like the logical one would be Marvel, given his name and the fact that his old profile picture was of Falcon. I know he's gone on stream with people like Lifebricks, who almost exclusively focus on SW, but I don't know if FF is that way. The style of writing is sketchy too, doesn't feel like the way Falcon writes and I've never seen him sign off with "may the force be with you." For that matter, why would it be coming now, weeks after he's gone silent? As for R2-K2, I wasn't sure at first, but after finding out the context, I'd say that it's a fairly fitting choice and a sweet tribute, and also adding that the set should have a portion donated to cancer research. I heard she'd be coming in a Rebels vs Stormtroopers set, can anyone verify?

    Indiana Jones 2023 - Rumors & Discussion

    Apparently the set may not be revealed on April 1st. The leaker said that people (specifically the ReleasetheToD account) were badgering them for images, and he had revealed the image of Mola Ram which was leaked without his consent. On one hand, I do feel for him, and I think that sharing images that you were given confidentially is objectively a bad thing, but I'm also kind of skeptical that the leaker had the full image in the first place, if I'm being completely honest. Too many things just kinda point to them not being trustworthy either.

    Jurassic Properties 2024 - Rumors & Discussion

    I haven't paid a ton of attention to JW lately, but is there any chance the trailer is based on the scene from the Lost World, or do we think it means a trailer for a t-rex, rather than a trailer with a t-rex?

    Marvel Superheroes 2024 - Rumors & Discussion

    Nah, you read it right, yet that's a fair point. But I suppose the discussion has been put to rest by Brick Clicker's resurgence. In any case, I'm not sure about these sets as a whole anymore. I like cheaper Iron Legion figures, and I'm riding on the Milano being one of the best sets of all time (I certainly don't object to a Baby Groot, they're shockingly expensive right now for what they are), but the battles seem ludicrously expensive and overpriced. Potted Groot and Helicarrier are fine I suppose, I doubt I'll get either unless they're absolutely amazing. On the other hand, I suppose these aren't bad for people new to the hobby, and it's really neat that there's a set less than 500$ with all of the Avengers, but It'd be nice for IW to get some new stuff as well. I'm typically someone more focused on the builds, and as is, I just don't know how many of these outside of the Milano actually have the capacity to be great. The leviathan might be okay, but it sounds like most of the AoU one is focused on terrain, which is typically a recipe for a kind of mediocre set. On the other hand, this is admittedly not terribly far off of what we got for the IS wave, and honestly, as long as the Milano is good, I'll be pretty happy.

    Brick Clicker did post yesterday. It wasn't a leak, but he did update on info a GWP.

    Yeah, seconding the usage on the Ninjago pieces. Your usage of light here is really fantastic, and I love how luminescent it all feels with the trans-clear bricks.

    Isn't that already confirmed, or am I hallucinating?

    Marvel Superheroes 2024 - Rumors & Discussion

    I've had my suspicions for a while, but I'm still going to have to make you one of my Prisoners (2013). Perhaps that one was a tad forced. In any case, I'm still kind of shocked how little we have discussed the sets lined up. This year feels like Infinity Saga part 2 to me, I'm beyond hyped to see the summer wave and D2C.

    MCJ user spotted on the LEGO Marvel thread, I’m revoking your Kino Card. Hand in your copy of Paddington 2, please.

    Batman (DC Superheroes) 2024 - Rumors & Discussion

    I don't know about the shadow box. I love Batman Returns, and had always wanted sets based on it so I could get the Catwoman and Penguin designs, but when the set was revealed, I really didn't love it enough to buy it. I really think a sweet spot could have been achieved that was much smaller and more palatable, but I don't even know if I would have been particularly interested in it if it were over $200.
