    Harry Potter 2018 - Rumors & Discussion

    None of the Target's near me (50 mile radius around central Ohio) had them in stock according to brickseek, but I did manage to order the great hall through lego.com, so I'll have that in a couple days. I'm guessing they weren't prepared for the release, which makes sense given that they scrambled to do this in the first place. Maybe these problems in the US will make everyone else a little less salty (though this pendulum swings both ways all the time, so we'll all be venting again next summer when Europe gets a Spider-Man set first, I'm looking at you web warriors bridge).

    It's exclusive to Target and the Lego store for July.

    All the Walmart's in my area have the sets discounted. The only ones not on sale is Lockwood estate and the T-rex Transport. The others are ranging from $5 to $15 off.

    It's a modified version of Lockwood Manor. Same door. They swapped the first floor windows with the stickered display cases and swapped the white railing for the brown.

    The leg/foot printing is strange. It almost looks like it was designed for dual molded legs and then last minute they switched to regular legs. It looks like she's wearing black sandals with pink socks... The lack of a normal facial expression is perplexing as well. There's a lot of weird design decisions to unpack here. The torso and hair looks good though, at least we have those.

    Lego Overwatch 2019 - Rumors & Discussion

    Overwatch has a lot going on in it. You can expect anything ranging from castles, a moon base, dropships, ancient ruins, futuristic cities, mech's, transforming robots and more. There's a little of everything in there. It'll be exciting to see what all we get.

    I'm excited, I've bought a few cheap customs/bootlegs, but it'll be sweet to have official sets.

    Yeah, they just posted closeups of all of them, it's definitely a new teacup. Bogart Snape looks awesome!

    Could Umbridge be holding a new teacup mold? It doesn't look like the regular cup, the handle looks different to me.

    Some of the early HP sets were particularly simple though, I mean there was like three sets that had cardboard walls rather than brick built... Which is maybe a bit more junior than some of the other sets of the time.

    The first two movies are definitely children's movies, even the early Lego sets for those movies are built similar to the Juniors sets of today. So I don't think it's unreasonable to have a few Juniors sets. It would be nice just because of the specially printed elements that always end up included in Juniors sets.

    Okay, gotcha, that makes more sense. Thought I had seriously missed something there for a minute.

    Which set has a Diplodocus? Did I miss something?

    I really wish the Jurassic Park set hadn't been a Walmart exclusive, but only because their customer service is extremely poor. According to Brickseek the dozen Walmart's in a 20 mile radius around me all have it in stock, but I've yet to find it. When I talk to customer service they get as far as verifying that they have it in stock and can sell it, but they have no idea where it's at in the store. Even worse, the last Walmart I called, when I tried to give the employee the UPC number to look it up, he said they don't use those... Honestly, a telephone psychic would have been more helpful than that last character I talked to.

    For me, dark tan is kind of a lateral move. Tim's hair I've always thought was kind of auburn, the color Lego chose is just a bit too light to me. But yeah, Lex's hair should be lighter than Tim's, Lego's choice on hair colors is off on pretty much all of these characters. Without a better replacement for her hair I figure if I go darker for Tim it'll be a better balance.
