    Lord of the rings sets returning? *Updated for 2023

    As much as it is exciting that LOTR seems to be returning, we do need to temper expectations... For all we know, it will be a Stranger Things situation of one D2C and a couple of Brickheadz, and that would be it. We don't know enough to speculate on tons of battle packs, and considering how few battle packs LEGO does for even Star Wars, I wouldn't expect much on that end... Also, 500 posts - Woo

    We'll almost definitely see something Ashoka-based this coming year, but I do wonder at what scale/context.

    Marvel Superheroes 2022 - Rumors & Discussion

    I would honestly expect to see some comics-based set with Deadpool in it, but I highly doubt we will see a set based on the movie. Maybe an 18+ mask for Deadpool, but probably not an MCU figure until he inevitably appears in some PG-13 MCU film.

    Marvel Superheroes 2022 - Rumors & Discussion

    This is true, but between there only being so many CMF slots per year, as well as the fact that they can bet on many of these characters appearing at a later time, there isn't as much of a rush to use budget and design resources for the figs. Also, if LEGO wants to keep up with CMFs generally being exclusive, they may want to wait to know if the same design will be used later before they put them as a "CMF exclusive" that falls flat. To some degree, this may be why they feel comfortable doing more What If figures: They know they will generally stay exclusive, and they are something more unique as a result (and inherently, considering some of the What If designs).

    Oh now I'm just wondering if they would possibly do a Winter Soldier based Quinjet... I would be so happy with that. It's not likely, given that the Quinjet wasn't the most prominent in that movie, but we'll see. My guess is either AOU or A1.

    Wizarding World 2022 - Rumors & Discussion

    I think price point is the biggest question here. If they did a nice $250 Gringotts with the Ironbelly being built at full scale, it could easily just be focused on those two builds, with Gringotts maybe having a full bank interior and some track. I feel like LEGO would focus on adding a good Ironbelly to go with the bank rather than building up an extra building for the set.

    Marvel Superheroes 2022 - Rumors & Discussion

    Simply put, the Spiderman figures aren't meant for us. They are meant for kids. I totally get that they're not what a lot of people want, but just like mechs sell, these will sell - not just because they're big LEGO action figures, but because they are SPIDERMAN big LEGO action figures. I highly doubt that these are why the Sanctum didn't get a ton of new prints. More than likely it's due to budget being allocated to some other sets (whether the $500 or the January wave or something - they are releasing 3 Marvel D2Cs in one year, and they only have so much budget. I think a lot of people forget that LEGO is given specific budgets for themes/waves.)

    LEGO Star Wars 2022 Set Discussion - READ FIRST POST!!!

    Honestly not all that great of an advent. While I get that they aren't made as army-builders, generally that is one of their great qualities, and this one, with its four Christmas figures, kinda fails at that. The mini-builds are okay, but it needed more figures of value to be worth it in my opinion. I personally like the fact that they have the Snowtrooper, battle droid, etc. (though bringing back more B2s after all this time would be nice), but I would have preferred a general P1 Clone instead of the commander, and another army-build figure like a Hoth Rebel or even a Stormtrooper instead of the "Summer Vader."

    Honestly, as much as I feel like the heads aren't the best, I really like these as well. And as much as the Iron Man one didn't necessarily sell the best at $40, I think these will do a lot better at $25-$30 - especially since they are Spider-Man.

    What's your recent LEGO Star Wars Purchase?

    Finally got 75192 Millennium.... Haven't gotten a stand for it yet though. That will be somewhere down the line.

    Lego James Cameron's Avatar II 2022 - Rumors & Discussion

    Agreed on this. I think Avatar has some beautiful sets, but it's not going to sell as well as LEGO hopes. The first movie was a "flash in the pan," and as much as I'm sure a lot of people will go see the sequel because the first one was "the big movie" for so long, I really don't expect it to do that great, unless it truly has some amazing story and not just cool visuals. Not enough adults will care enough for these sets, and not enough kids will likely want them either. I think they're banking some on the cool helicopters and creatures, but even that won't save a theme from being a clearance buy for a lot of people.
