    Latest news about Lego animal moulds

    How reliable was the orca rumor anyway? After all, it doesn't fit with the prehistoric theme of the animals we did get from the sets.

    [MOC] Jackal Staff Oasis

    The columns are far and away my favorite part of this build, though the lotus roof is also a stand out. But I also like the palm tree trunks and the pools with the lotus-pads. One drawback is that the roof is rather plain - it would benefit from some tiling, or statues, or crenellations, or vegetation. But anyway, it's a very adventurous-romantic build! Is it part of an ongoing story, or just a quick backstory for the set?

    Ninjago villains and future

    Sea-monster-type or other aquatic villains seem to me to be the largest gap among the potential villains the theme hasn't done yet. This would also give an opportunity to create a wacky hybrid of a diving suit and a ninja costume to stand out among the other costume variants. After that, maybe a space subtheme.

    Pirate sets you would like to see

    A merchant ship is at the top of my wishlist, with plain or neutral sails - if added play value is necessary, it could be under attack from pirates on a boat or a small brick-built ship. Otherwise, something like a small port with tavern (looking forward to the alternate build of the creator ship), or a return of the islander or armada subthemes.
  5. Intimidation! The bone-chilling reputation of Captain Redbeard, psychological warfare and all that. After all, the greatest victory is to attain ones objective without having to fight! Otherwise, a great solution, without having to mod the structure too much - provided the crew remember to approach their prey from the correct side...
  6. The second one; but the shield is regular yellow, which I think is a bit of a mismatch (though not as much as the s15 frightening knight).

    LEGO Store "Build a Minifigure"

    But this time in a new nougat color? Or is just the light?

    Hopefully this newfound enthusiasm for animals will manifest itself in a zoo theme down the road
  9. Maybe we can hope for S22 for September 2021, and the decoupling of the series number and the year?
  10. Maybe just seizing a chance to reuse the overly-specific monkey-king hair+ears mold?
  11. I'm actually surprised they haven't made a archetypical criminal minifig yet. It wouldn't be too hard to make it different from the crooks in City - give him a cloth cap (a piece I'm still waiting for), a domino mask print, and maybe a stethoscope from Friends, like for a safe-cracker. Actually, since we've got the firefighter in this series, I see a criminal as the most obvious missing Lego City archetype, along with a coast guard minifig.
  12. For me, its the usual suspects - FB and YT. But Im actually trying to cut down on both...

    Ideas for a CMFs

    Great teaser for building anticipation, but I wonder if the "rabbit-hole girl" isn't too similar to her Disney counterpart, making her more suited for a licensed Disney series.
  14. How about "enchantress"? Is that a positive term? (all this question really needs is a good thesaurus) As for a good female LEGO spellcaster, how about the fairy from series 8? And Im not sure about her characterization, but there was also the ice queen from series 16 - she obviously had some elemental ice magic thing going on. In any case, I would be all for a such a minifig of either alignment.

    Do we know it will be a mold, as opposed to being brick built?
