    Unpopular Opinions about LEGO

    Not Monkie Kid, but a similar thought on the Chinese New Year sets - these are the best sets that Lego currently produces. Spring Lantern Festival is far and away *the* best set Lego have made in years. I love it. But the cynic in me says there's a reason they put their best designers on that line and the prices are so keen for your return. When I saw that I thought, "Dayum, Lego *really* want to get a foothold in the Chinese market. Which brings us to here: As much as I can praise their toy for being timeless and educational. As much as I'd praise their customer service for being above and beyond most companies - it boils down to this quote.
  4. Animaniacs had a recent revival if we're going that route.
  5. That was just the easiest example to pick from many overhyped comments in the thread is all. It's not about ruling out particular numbers, it's about not getting so hyped with expectation for *whatever* feature that you then end up disappointed.
  6. I know, but one can dream. Even if the castle had to be cut back - like say, a Gatehouse & Front Walls only - I'd like that. Everyone else would hate it though :P
  7. You are not the only one. Some of the wishlists in this thread are not even close to realistic. 20+ minifigs? come on now I just hope people are treating them as wishlists and not setting them as expectations or there's gonna be a lot of disappointed/angry AFOLs who only have themselves to blame. My wish (in no way an expectation, but it'd be neat) - is that the Castle is scaled to the Blacksmith house. When you place them side by side the Blacksmith doesn't look stupidly large like it does beside anything else.

    [MOC] Mage Tower

    Fantastic work. Love the sorcerer's apprentice getting swept away. Fantasia vibes.

    [MOC] Red Falcon's Castle

    Love your work. The swirly gold dish is the obvious highlight, but I'm a big fan of the bare outward facing studs for detail too. Does it have an interior?

    Ideas for new City sets

    Here's the original submission: https://ideas.lego.com/projects/a8055a23-30d5-45a4-b046-7f5988722a3f I gotta say it's pretty great, and the one I am looking forward to the most of the current 'under construction' batch.

    Ideas for new City sets

    You'll be glad to hear there is a lighthouse in the works via Ideas. However, based on the original submission, it is unlikely to be minifig-scale. Perhaps it could work in the distance.

    LEGO Ideas Discussion

    I'm a big fan of the airship, but it seems to have been re-entered with zero modifications. If it didn't pass the first time through, why would it now?

    From the new train. Is this an existing piece, or something new?

    Lego Pick a Brick problems?

    I can still see that message on the Irish site (Lego.ie). It's on the screen where you start selecting bricks: https://i.imgur.com/629YMnZ I wouldn't waste time worrying about all of this. They are clearly having some handover issues between their old system and new. Give it a few months, this is a massive operation and a logistical nightmare. I'd like to hope they are automating the 'picking' parts of the service in this downtime, but outside their communications (which will never be 100% factual), it's all speculation on our parts. In the meantime, there's always Bricklink.
