  1. Future Marvel Superheroes Rumors & Speculation

    I'm really hoping for this Gwen Stacy variant in one of next years sets, but it's probably unlikely given the focus on the MCU stuff next year. Still, one can dream.
  2. Honestly, I think had Lego made Luke's robes tan, than it would have looked just as inaccurate. I just don't think Lego currently produces a color that fits Luke's robe color. It's tannish, but not as tan as the Lego tan. It's whittish, but not as white as Lego white. The color of Luke's robes sort of sits between those two color choices, so no decision the designer made was going to be completely accurate. Even the higher quality action figures of this Luke variant are all over the place on color, it just seems to be a hard color to match in plastic. I think in a lot of ways this costume has the same color issues as the ANH Luke. That being said, out of the two color choices, I'll gladly take white over tan. There's an unending amount to of tan Jedi robes floating around already, at least the white stands out amongst a sea of beige.
  3. I don't mind the color choices at all. Luke's clothing is white and tan and either color stand out in different lighting conditions. So it was either going to be too white or too tan and at least this stands out from the dozens of other tan Jedi. As for the hair color, I'm glad they went this route. Luke's hair has a lot of gray, but it also has a good amount of his original brownish/blond in there too. There's just not currently a way to show that type of color variance in a hair mold. So, like Leia in TFA, they had to choose a solid color in between the gray and brown. This is a decent choice to me.

    That hairpiece looks good on the Joker, I might have to buy Beetlejuice just for that.
  5. The LEGO Batman Movie Set/CMF Rumors & Discussion

    In fairness, leg printing is pretty standard, whereas arm printing isn't as common. Too, in the movie, the printing on the arm wraps further around than actual arm printing does, so it doesn't seem like he was designed with the intention of being an actual release. I was more angry when they didn't bother to do side leg printing for Poison Ivy. They finally created the ultimate Poison Ivy variant, and then they cheaped out on the leg printing. So close...

    I'm wondering if the final version of Hawkgirls helmet will have the printing it had in the movie. It would be a shame to lose that, it helps sharpen the look of that mold.

    That looks okay, but the color is probably more suited for 66 Joker, I might try that combo. I bought the Starfire fun pack and immediately put the hairpiece on the Jokerland version. It actually looks really good. Raven looks pretty decent lined up with the non-dimensions Titans, though the face is a little off. The printing quality isn't exactly great for the face. Also I think the white skin for the legs is oddly bright, a light gray might have looked a bit better. Hopefully the new Titans series prompts Lego to make a slightly better version.
  8. The LEGO Batman Movie Set/CMF Rumors & Discussion

    I like the scowl, I mean I would have preferred a smiling face, but this isn't really out of character for him either.
  9. For the price, the minifigure updates are pretty underwhelming. Leia's leg printing is great, but the white torso seems a little off to me, the Hoth base version seems superior to me. The mask printing for her and Han are good though. None of the other minigures do anything for me, pretty lazy. The build is awesome, but I don't like the scale of it, I prefer the regular system scale. Granted, I definitely will see if I can get a hold of the new cockpit piece and try to adapt it to my 2012 MF. I'd like to get a hold of the chess table and sticker sheet, so I can build a moc of that interior room.

    I wouldn't be entirely surprised if we saw the sitting mold of scooby doo used with just a new head. Both Ace and Scooby have a similar build and shape, so it could work.
  11. Disney's Future with Lego

    If there is one bright side to them being Junior sets, at least we'll get some nice printed elements. And honestly, so long as the minifigures match the style of the Disney CMF one than I'll be perfectly content. I do hope that if we get jack-jack they'll use the existing baby mold as it would be nice to get some variation for that mold.
  12. Disney's Future with Lego

    I don't mind the Incredibles 2 being Junior sets so long as the characters are minifigures. I'm pretty impressed with the other Disney sets. Cinderella's castle almost looks like a regular Lego set, the building techniques in this theme are finally starting to mature. Too, the color scheme is starting to look a lot better, much closer to the movies. And the fact that they're regularly including side characters and villains is a vast improvement.

    The hat is similar to Penguin's, but it definitely has hair molded on the back.
  14. The LEGO Batman Movie Set/CMF Rumors & Discussion

    Strange, Gentleman Ghosts top hat has hair molded onto it... Looks at avatar quietly... Anyways, I don't see myself getting the bat shuttle. Cool build, but too many variant and not enough new characters. The other four sets are awesome though. I'm mad at myself that I'll have yet another bat dune buggy, but I really want Boomerang. The Justice League party is easily my favorite of the bunch, cool build and good minifigure selection. Though honestly, between Harley's truck and the Egghead mech there's no shortage of awesomeness in this wave. Now, if the CMF can include Cyborg, the Batwoman styled Batgirl variant and a flesh tone baby then I'll have everything I want from the movie.

    That's an excellent idea. Likewise I hope it comes in brown, so I can make a Mei custom. Really these minifigures are making a number of Overwatch characters possible.
