  1. 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.
  3. Harry Potter 2018 - Rumors & Discussion

    Yeah, they just posted closeups of all of them, it's definitely a new teacup. Bogart Snape looks awesome!
  4. Harry Potter 2018 - Rumors & Discussion

    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.
  6. Harry Potter 2018 - Rumors & Discussion

    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.
  7. Jurassic World 2018 - Rumors and Discussion

    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?
  9. Jurassic World 2018 - Rumors and Discussion

    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.

    To be fair, she has dirty blonde hair and there's not a good color in the Lego palette to represent that. I'm more bothered by the fact that 3 of the 4 minifigures seem to have the same hair color. I think Tim's hair should have been more orange, fortunately I can swap a more suitable color in. I think I'll take the games suggestion and replace Alan's hair with Emmet's.

    They couldn't even print the Barbasol can, it's official, I'm salty. Then again, who can afford those expensive Barbasol rights? I guess we'll just have to settle for 'off brand Spider-man water bottle' instead.

    So they included the Embryo Cold Storage, but no Nedry to steal the Embryos. The included a ladder, but no ceiling to climb into... I just don't know how to feel about this set. I mean I believed the rumors fully and was super excited and yet I'm somehow underwhelmed. Still, I love the $40 price and I actually feel like I'm getting my money's worth, so I'll be happy with it. I wish they hadn't bothered with Alan's hat and given him a double sided head, his happy face is just so wrong for the content of this set (Notice his hair is present as well). Ellie's hair doesn't really fit. All I can say is that this better not be the only set. I still need Nedry, Hammond, Malcolm and a Jeep. No, but I'll read your magazine.
  14. Harry Potter 2018 - Rumors & Discussion

    In fairness, there were times in the past where Lego wasn't great with it's usage of female characters. There were definitely times where they were favoring male characters over female characters (Though that was a prevailing trend in toys for quite some time and still is for some companies, thankfully Lego has improved on that front and is much more progressive than that). So I can see how a person might interpret fewer features for a female character in comparison to male characters as a slight against women, but I definitely don't think that's what's happening here. In terms of unique features Hermione got a completely new hair piece whereas Ron only received a recolor. So if Hermione does have only a single sided face she still comes out pretty even with Ron. Honestly though, I don't see a way that Hermione doesn't get a dual sided head.

    It occurs to me that they didn't bother to give Hermione or Susan skirts. Which seems a little odd given how prevalent the short dual molded legs have become. It's too bad really, they could have done dark grey and flesh molding and then printed the shoe (Like they did for the PPG legs) and then thrown in a cloth element. Hopefully they're just saving it for the CMF, it's not like it wouldn't be useful given that half the students wear skirts.
