    Hogwarts Icons Display Option

    Can anyone who has Hogwarts Icons show some possible display options with other HP sets? In particular, with Diagon Alley and parts of Hogwarts, but other options are welcome too. I'm considering how best to display it.

    Harry Potter 2021 - Rumors & Discussion

    Slightly off topic, but can someone who has the Hogwarts Icons set send a picture of it next to Diagon Alley and perhaps some other sets. I'm trying to figure out size comparisons with some of the other main sets from the line for display (as well as what it looks especially nice next to).

    REVIEW | 10294 Titanic

    A primary reason I have heard for why LEGO uses such a myriad of colors inside sets like these are also simply because of costs. If they can use a color that may be slightly cheaper to manufacture, or one that is, perhaps, overstocked in the factory, it lets them reduce the set cost for the consumer and for the company.

    Marvel Superheroes 2021 - Rumors & Discussion

    My expectation is that we’ll get the ubiquitous spiderman set that will be a “Wolverine Team-Up,” thus putting him in another set.

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

    Does anyone wonder if maybe LEGO has made less sets for Bad Batch to start in response to poor sales of Rebels sets around the same time in the series? Maybe LEGO just wants to be safe to prevent petering waves of low sales? Also, do many other companies seem to be making much merchandise in regards to Bad Batch? Maybe it isn't just LEGO avoiding merch for this series at the moment (and if so, maybe there's a bigger reason).

    Harry Potter 2021 - Rumors & Discussion

    Honestly, with how many sets are releasing in November, I would be surprised if it was a new set, but you never know. Unless it's a January set but they are revealing it soon? Though of note is the fact that the Remembrall was originally considered for the D2C that we have seen, so that was probably where that rumor originated.

    Honestly, these sets sound like they could be really nice. While the minifig selection isn't anything to write home about, it's also the minifigs that make sense for the scenes, so it's not like they could have really done anything else, and who knows- maybe we'll get some nice variants from these sets (I could see them giving us a new Luke for the trash compactor to represent his and Han's dirty stormtrooper armor and Luke's attack by the Diagona. I could also see a nice R2 with printing for the swamp. These should honestly be really nice, and I'm hoping that LEGO continues the trend of nicer sets like these and makes good displays.

    I wouldn’t be surprised if they don’t release the other NWH sets for a few months, but then they just go all out with spoilers. I’d much rather they did that then release sets earlier that are just incorrect.

    DC Superheroes 2021 - Rumors & Discussion

    I hate to be that guy, but why is this one of the best DC waves (except for the fact we just haven’t gotten a ton of DC lately). All I’m seeing is three Batman sets that look about as well done as any other sets…

    71033 LEGO Muppets CMF Series - Rumors & Discussion

    I honestly wouldn't be surprised if we see a Walter figure, especially with him being more prominent with the more recent Muppet movies.

    I hate sand... Yeah. I don't know that it would really happen either way, but we'll see. The release of Ben's hut made me more hopeful for a set like that.

    LEGO Star Wars 2021 Set Discussion - READ FIRST POST!!!

    I'm honestly kinda intrigued to see what LEGO can do with this Landspeeder set (assuming the rumors are true). The way I see it, LEGO has done all of the main OT ships and vehicles (with the AT-AT coming this fall), so it makes sense to do some of the semi-iconic smaller vehicles from that trilogy. While I know a lot of people want more prequel UCS sets (though I don't really hear about many people desiring sequel UCS sets (which I feel would have some pretty cool vehicles)), the fact is that LEGO seems to really want to focus on the older adult market with these sets. Yes, people who watched CW and the sequel trilogy are going to be 20ish now depending (at least), and I'm sure they will get UCS sets in their time, but for now, LEGO has a track record of OT UCS sets selling well, and I think they want to maintain that for their "collectors" line. Like they said (however you want to get annoyed with how they phrased it (whether rightfully so or not-I'm not going to start a discussion about this) ), the Gunship is going to tell them a lot about prequel UCS sales. This isn't to start a discussion about the gunship. It is to say that they have a point. From a business perspective, LEGO has been selling OT UCS sets quite well - to the point where they can remake an R2-D2 set from 2012 and very few people really complained that it "took a UCS slot." They haven't had much in the way of prequel sets. It's kinda a "if it ain't broke" situation for them. The gunship is a way of testing the waters to see if large scale UCS prequel sets can do well by making a very iconic vehicle from the prequels and CW (which is pertinent right now). Another way I was thinking about it was that the Landspeeder is Star Wars version of the Aston Martin or the VW bug. It's the closest to an "iconic car" that Star Wars has, and they know how well that kind of simple but nicely designed vehicle sells, so they are just expanding that to the Star Wars line with this vehicle to test (not that they have many other speeders they could really do). It's honestly an understandable business choice with a well-known vehicle that many people recognize and/or have seen real versions of at exhibits around the world. It also gives opportunity for a lot of really cool building techniques. While this would be cool, I don't see it happening so soon after the Cantina (another Tatooine MBS). I certainly wouldn't object to a nice Lars Homestead though.

    Modular Building Sets - Rumours and Discussion

    I wonder if a Cafe Corner redesign could be in order as a hotel for the 15th anniversary. Considering how much LEGO is willing to do rereleases/remakes of late, I wouldn't necessarily be surprised...

    LEGO Star Wars 2021 Set Discussion - READ FIRST POST!!!

    Honestly, a part of me wonders if this could be due to the issues with Assault on Hoth a few years ago. They feel like they want to play it safe by releasing everything at once so that there can't be issues with no Rebel/Imperial sets to go with the given UCS at release.
