  1. Guess the next animal mould round 3

    Do we know it will be a mold, as opposed to being brick built?
  2. True, there are a lot of great parts, and its good we are at least getting a yellow-skinned series. I guess I should count my blessings.
  3. Sushi chef is the clear winner for me here. He is the only figure I like as a whole, instead of just some parts. I have no clear runner-up. Not a bad series, but not really excited for it - waiting for a regular CMF series, however far off that may be.
  4. 2018 City Sets - Rumours and Discussion

    The thing with a desert subtheme is that the animals should be a threat to the explorers for more conflict, like the big cats and crocodile in the jungle theme or the polar bear in the arctic theme. But dont really know of such a big animal which would warrant new molds for a desert theme. The obvious dangerous desert animals are snakes and scorpions, but we have molds for those. Maybe coyotes or jackals. A safari subtheme would be better in this regard, but it seems to close to this years jungle subtheme, so I would give it a few more years.
  5. Could the "Yellow Brick Road" mention in the London Bus set be a hint towards a Wizard of Oz series (or future set/theme/whatever)? Granted, its a year off, but is that unprecedented? (Factoring in with how long it takes to develop a CMF series)
  6. Pirates of the Caribbean 5

    I wonder what explanation the sharks will have in-universe. As in, why were the sharks cursed along with the crew? Were they simply in the wrong place at the wrong time?
  7. Is there any info to back up a 2nd series of TLBM?
  8. Bummer, if so. Then my guess would be Disney S2. Another LBM series doesnt make sense to me, one year after the movie. Though it could always be a themed Historical/Castle/Fantasy/Pirate/Western/... series!
  9. Pirates of the Carribean 5 Sets Discussion

    The top gray blur could be one of the stands, as was mentioned a while back. The bottom blur could be a cresting wave (since both the dark part at the top of the blur and the lighter part at the bottom seem to extend beyond the marked area, and would thus be too long for a shark). Just a hypothesis; personally I hope and expect the shark to be in the set.
  10. Pirates of the Carribean 5 Sets Discussion

    The ghostly crew are neat, and well-made for army building. Though I was hoping for one of the half-faced crewmembers from the teaser. And I dont really recognize Salazar – I think the Snape/Dastan/Norrington hair would be a better fit than this new mold (I assume its new?). And I would have used black as the base color for his torso. And Henry as a minifig seems much older than IRL.
  11. I feel the same way about fleshie torsos (especially with LotR and PotC). But yeah, that would be a good solution.
  12. Collectible Minifigures question

    If thats the case, then But Thanks! It was fun compiling this list anyway
  13. I dont understand why Disney is making these live action remakes in the first place. To be clear, I dont necessarily think its a bad thing, I just dont get the thinking behind it. Just because it hasnt been done yet (at least by Disney)? Or as an easy way to make Money out of a safe or known property?
  14. Star Trek

    A new Star Trek series. For myself, I will probably be content if it is set in the prime timeline, and if it doesnt feel more futuristic than the "future" series, something that bugged me a lot with Enterprise. ST:TNG is the gold standard for me, but i will try to avoid letting nostalgia color my feelings for Discovery. A well-done prequel series could actually enhance the grand "operatic" feeling of the franchise, which I hope will happen.
  15. I also want to thank @Itaria No Shintaku for the guessing game, even though I usually dont like these games and I didnt take part. But this gam had the right kind of clues to make the figures guessable, why not being spoliery. On another note, glad to see the "dislike" for the corn suit guys face being balanced out in the last several posts (count me in as another admirer). What do people have against him anyway?
