  1. Perhaps it's just the area where I live but I actually don't see much in the way of discounts in store. It's not really a huge deal since Amazon almost always does them, and there are some here and there at Target, but I tend to not see a lot in the way of sales. The US is a massive country though, so it might just be a regional thing.

    Marvel Superheroes 2021 - Rumors & Discussion

    It's rather early so I'm not gonna make any final judgements, but so far I'm not really a huge fan. The color is unique but does little for me, and the head area looks pretty meh. I really enjoy Lego mechs, but even I'm getting kind of sick of them, and I feel like this one really doesn't do anything to justify its existence compared to Iron Monger (which is based on the MCU movie that started it all) and the Sakaar Hulkbuster (which is pretty unique looking, even if it is another Hulkbuster). Not too hot on this one so far but hopefully HD pics change my mind. That's an insult to Bionicle.
  3. I feel like even 3 is unlikely. There aren't a ton of hair/helmet pieces that would work with a 3-sided head, but really the main thing is that it just probably isn't necessary. Most characters don't really need more than 2 expressions for one scene, so I think Lego just would see it as more expensive than it's worth. To try and get back a bit more to the actual wishlists, one thing I am desperately hoping for next year is a Darktrooper Battle Pack. Maybe this is just wishful thinking but I think it's pretty likely given that they made just one for the Gideon's ship. What I'm wondering is if the other battle pack that will go with it will also be Mandalorian themed, or if they'll go with another movie/show.

    Marvel Superheroes 2021 - Rumors & Discussion

    LEGO does seem to really like making office spaces for all of those LEGO Ideas sitcom sets, but yeah I don't think they'd go for a TVA office set unless there's a lot of action scenes in there in the future.
  5. I'm like 99% he doesn't have one in the other sets so I'm not getting my hopes up, but it would really great if he did. It just seems like a bit of an oversight for him to not get a face print when Din taking off his helmet was such a big moment.

    LEGO Monkie Kid 2021

    If I remember right the Hulk vs Red Hulk set was similar in price to the Sandy Mech, so I think the reason they didn't end up making it come with two bigfigs is because a new one was just outside their budget for this wave (or year, I'm not sure how it's divided up). Either way it's a decent set as is but I do feel like it rides a little too hard on the novelty of being a bigfig mech, as opposed to having a lot of interesting characters or features.

    LEGO Monkie Kid 2021

    I was kind of just assuming that there wouldn't be any more sets after this summer wave since we also had a second wave of only three sets last year, but I didn't realize there were two as of yet unused numbers. I feel like it would be weird to do a third wave when this current one had so few sets anyway, but Lego does often operate in strange ways. If they do end up being used I agree that the most likely result will be some kind of weird set unlike the rest of the line.

    Marvel Superheroes 2021 - Rumors & Discussion

    I think that as long as the Marvel shows end up being popular (which seems to have been the case so far), we'll probably get at least something for each show. If we get more CMF series later then they'll probably dump a lot of them there, especially for series that don't have potential for interesting sets. It might also depend on how many movies are coming out. I could see them doing a set for a Disney+ show if there aren't any movies coming out for a few months, but if it's one or the other they'll certainly pick to focus on the films.
  9. I was also thinking that it would probably be mostly D2Cs and a few reveals for later this year or early next year, but I'm still not really sure what to expect so I'm just gonna keep my expectations low.
  10. It would be kinda funny if they were planning on saving some of the new sets to be revealed at that Lego Con thing, though considering that they already revealed two of them that seems unlikely.
  11. This is definitely the first time in years where I can remember actually being interested in the majority of the sets. The only one I can definitely say I'll skip is the Slave I, because I already have one (albeit the old one from 2010), but mostly because the only exclusive fig is almost certainly coming in more sets when BoBF comes out. I also haven't seen Bad Batch yet since I was planning on rewatching Clone Wars first, but I'll probably end up liking it and caving on the Shuttle too.

    The Bone Mech is definitely the stand-out for me. It does look a bit odd in some spots but overall I think it's great based on what I've seen. I also like Sandy's Mech, though I probably won't pick it up.

    LEGO Ninjago 2021

    I don't recall any GWP-type set where you have to buy it separately either, but I very well may have just not noticed it. I think found the timing to be weird for the US, but I guess they figure it'll encourage people to spend when they didn't plan to.
  14. I agree that the recolored weapon pack katana piece would work the best for the Darksaber, but even if it is just the older design in the Light Cruiser I'd say it's highly likely that the weapon pack will get recolored in black in a different set anyway, so we can always just make a custom one once that happens.

    LEGO Ninjago 2021

    I finally purchased the Jungle Dragon today. I think my only main criticism is really the size. I'm not really the kind of person who cares too much about the PPP normally, partially because I think it isn't fair to judge items with a subjective value with money, but also just because the US tends to get the best PPP so price usually isn't a problem. That said, this set just feels a bit on the small side for $40. It's not really even poor value so much as it isn't quite at Ninjago's standard level of value. Otherwise though I think it's great. The figs are nice, the build is fun, and the dragon really has a ton of personality, moreso than any other Ninjago dragon I can think of. I don't have much else to say on the set, but if you're interested and don't mind waiting a little longer perhaps considering purchasing it on discount.
