    40580 Buildable Tahu: Bionicle returns in 2023!

    hold on a minute - a full re-release? Though only a rumour I can say that this would win me over any subscription the come up with (well, not any subscription but my tolerance would be higher in this case). Although I feel like just straight re-releases may become lacklustre after a while and would need to be balanced with something else to win over younger audiences at least. Interesting prospect though

    40580 Buildable Tahu: Bionicle returns in 2023!

    With recent rumours that there'll be another GWP featuring an old theme (Blacktron) could we perhaps understand this as TLG further testing the waters with older themes that could potentially lead to resurgence of fully-fledged sets available to purchase in the future not tied to any special events but as it's own line? Now the new Icons line would make a bit more sense Or I'm maybe looking into this too deeply and it's simply a few concepts that they had in the backlog for 90th anniversary that they still want to push out and it's nothing more than that

    Yeah the canister was more my wishful thinking anyway but it'd be cool if the actually went bricks-to-the-wall and did it. Although I can imagine they wish to continue to use, now standard, black boxes Combining into Tahu Nuva would be my dream come true but the proportions of the model still look off to me compared to the original model. Sure, the feet were large on OG model but this leak presents Tahu as having big red boots that go half way up his shin. The more I look at this leak the more I hope it's fake or at least a really early model. Although the box style makes me think its fake

    If this leak is true than I may've expected too much. Why is the hand so small and the feet so big? Something feels off

    I'd like to think otherwise but realistically, I think this seems the best reason why they probably made Bionicle GWP Anyhow, at least something to quench my Bionicle nostalgia! I'm really interested in how they'll approach it. I'd love if they used as much original pieces as possible but I think it'll be brick built for the most part. A straight re-release isn't an option I'd say. This isn't a reason to be disappointed yet, let's wait and see how it looks like Also, will there be a canister instead of a classic cardboard box? Bionicle was as much of a set as the packaging it came in - it'd be really cool to pay homage to that
  6. Kind of late to the party but I also think this castle moves the ante up for the theme (as it should have for the occasion). I'm very pleased with how it turned out and I'll be getting it even with no real attachments or nostalgia for the theme. I've been saving 100€ discount on lego.com and I think I now know what I'll use it on I'd love to see builds with similar modern approach as this set but on smaller scale. Bring back the castle theme in full!

    I take it that the 2 new Brickheadz are sold separately due to different brickheadz numbers (174, 175)? Edit: my bad, just saw the box. I'm not much of an expert on brickheadz to the numbers threw me off

    Both leaked sets (Inquisitor ship & Kenobi starfighter) look really good, I'll definitely buy them asap On a related note - I really hope that the white circle with age and piece count is not a part of the new box art, It takes away from the otherwise very cool box art and SW box template
  9. I'm really liking what I'm seeing with this Forestmen GWP - it is both modernised with concurrent parts yet retains the overall nostalgic design. I can't wait to see the Galaxy explorer!
  10. Am I understanding this right - the forestmen hideout will be GWP for this set?
  11. Great news! Although I think we'll only get a description of the set rather than any pictures but still, we'll have something to base our expectations on!
  12. just a potential heads-up for anyone wanting to secure the set beforehand via a physical Lego store - I went to my local Lego store a couple of days ago and asked if these's any possibility of being put on a waiting list for the set when it comes out (I remember this was the case for Titanic and UCS AT-AT) but the answer was negative. I know this used to be a practice because when I usually inquired about larger sets before release (even when only rumoured) the store employees always offered me the possibility of waiting list but this time it was different I'm not sure what the practice is in other countries but I thought this was something worth sharing
  13. same here brother. We're all expecting great things of this set I imagine

    Thanks for the info. I'm very sceptical of the rumour still, way too many things at play for now I second this line of thought. For 530$ the thing should be massive. In my opinion, way too massive and frankly unnecessary at this point unless there's something in the plot of S3 that could turn this around

    I hope you don't mind me asking (since I don't read all the posts here, especially when there're a lot of new posts in a short time) but who's the source of the UCS Razor Crest and what's their reputation? The idea seems a little... weird for a UCS set. Not saying it won't happen but this seems a bit like the UCS Imperial shuttle rumour-type situation form a couple of years back
