  1. I'm not sure if we know the bag color of this series, but I would love the plate have some way to indicate the series that it is for, either by color (ideally matching bag color) and/or a print (like batman series 2 or brickheadz). For my current CFM display, I add plates under the black baseplate that closely matches the color of that series. This way, if I ever take out a figure from the display or mix up figure from different series, I have an easy way to quickly return each figure back to its series. I don't think they have repeat the same bag color yet for the main CMF series, but for the sub-series (the licensed ones) and repeats, they can just put a logo or number there. I know you hate the logo but you can either turn the plate around or bricklink a ton of the generic black ones.
  2. LEGO Ninjago 2018

    Does the lack of a detailed description of the Ninjago City Dock imply that it wasn't shown at all at the toy fair, either physically or a as photo, and at most was only mentioned on during a presentation in the form of some bullet points on a slide?

    That may be true, but I also don't think it's random chance that the pin placement is 100% modular compatible.
  4. Lego BrickHeadz 2018 - Rumors & Discussion

    Regarding the current Rey + Ren Collector's Pack, that is exclusive to Target, will it be broken up to separate normal sets? I would hate to wait and then to find out that the pack was my only chance to get those figures.

    Regarding the red mailbox in the DD: Post Office Confirmed for 2019!

    Not sure about online, but at the store, you will see the starter kit with a sticker on the box displaying aquaman. I don't know if aquaman is actually in the box or if they just put the sticker there and then give you aquaman separately at checkout.

    First you guys were like: "hate it, first modular I will not buy." And then you get a little peak and suddenly you're like: "buy two on day one baby!"

    While I don't consider Market Street to be good enough for me to get, it is considered part of the modular building timeline. Have we forgotten these photos already?
  9. LEGO Dimensions Discussion

    I've collected all the sets but am waiting to get a console to finally play them. Regarding the emulated arcade games in the midway pack, are the originally multi-player games, like gauntlet, limited to one or possibly two players? If so, then if I want to have 3-4 players, then I'm limited to the season 2 battle arenas?

    When I think of art deco buildings, I think of miami beach. So shirtless man next to beach is ok with me. We can even stick the fun-at-the-beach set in front of this.

    They will issue a press release once SWAT has secured the leaker. Any moment now...

    Actually, I prefer the updated faces. I suppose it helps tell a better narrative. But the big joke in the Detective Office set is that the wanted poster shows the classic face that all the minifigures have. And wouldn't it be funny if all the heads are dual-sided with the classic faces on one side for purists?

    What do you mean 'ninjago is everywhere'? It's not as if there are ninjago police, fire, and construction sets. For city-focused builders, ninjago sets have some useful design elements: More variety of city clothing (yellow-skin compatible!) and characters City-related builds The same can be said of the first LEGO movie, where we got nicely designed ice cream and sanitation vehicles and many interesting city characters. And I have incorporated the 'future' police vehicles into my city... kind of like bladerunner or minority report. Not much from the LEGO Batman movie, unless you're interested in police-related items. LEGO should use their midway license (from LEGO Dimensions, rip) and create a video arcade or put some arcade cabinets in the back room of a store. I have fond memories of visiting a local italian knick-knack shop after school to play their arcade games in the back room. Kids these days won't really know what an arcade is. Heck, they may not even know what a see-saw is. But these throwbacks should appeal to the AFOL.

    Not sure if this is a good strategy, but I usually buy full-price items like the modulars on VIP 2x days and use the points later for other sets when they are discounted. But sometimes LEGO may force my hand like with the detective's office, where they offered the companion flower cart set and the holidays already drained me of any non-modular sets to buy. I think that this is the only time LEGO has released a companion set to a modular building before. Didn't we at one point tried to use this set to forecast an upcoming building? Didn't work. :)

    In regards to the fear of a clone maker releasing a set based purely on pre-release info, has that even happened in the past? They can probably reverse engineer smaller sets based just on just photos, but a modular building would be pretty hard. Of course, I'm not counting the inside-job possibility, where the clone maker can obtain parts or even the instruction booklets from manufacturing. Too bad the price of modular buildings don't usually go down over time. At most you would time your purchase to coincide with other promotions like double points and promotional sets.
