    What about Nova Corps Officer?
  2. Well, some could say that "inappropriate" is very nice euphemism. She was not trivialising the Holocaust, her post was about spreading hate. She was not comparing Republicans to Jews during WW2, she was comparing spreading hate towards Jews (the thing that started long before the WW2 and Holocaust) with spreading hate towards Republicans or people with conservative political opinions, supported by far leftists and progressivists. We could argue that those are not comparable things, but on the other hand I don´t think she should be fired for this. I´m not defending other stuff that she wrote (like some anti-mask or vote fraud nonsense), but I don´t like nowadays simplifications like "she is trivialising the Holocaust" or "she is comparing Republicans to Jews in WW2!". Sorry for the OT. BTW I agree with that Darktrooper.

    Lego 90 year set voting split and throughts

    I don´t like this voting, because there were LEGO themes and subthemes mixed together. There should be only themes (Castle, Space, Bionicle...) or subthemes (Black Falcons, Forestmen, Blacktron, M-Tron, Agori, Barraki...). They mixed them together and that doesn´t make sense and it is not fair, because most votes from castle fans were split between subthemes. But...they have now information which subthemes are the most preferred, so maybe in future we will see some CMF figure based on some of the old factions.
  4. Guyon2002: Thank you. If this new list is legit, then the summer wave will be much better than I expected!
  5. There is another list of summer SW sets, some sets are same in both lists, some are different or have different set number, for example: 75309 UCS Republic Gunship x MBS Attack on Endor / 75310 Mandalore Throne & Vault x Rebel Ambush / 75316 Mandalorian Fighter x Revenge of Palpatine...I wonder which one is the correct one. I´m sorry if this was discussed before.

    LEGO IDEAS - The Medieval Blacksmith

    This. It is not the same so that one from the joust set can be used for a faction on it´s own.
  7. No all tuskens had it, so it´s OK. I would prefer Mando set from season 1 (animals/vehicles: molded Blurrg, imperial speeder bike; minifigures: Kuiil, The Child, Full beskar Mando, Scout Trooper) but I am happy that we get updated Mando in a cheaper set.
  8. However, there must had been some exception for free promo stuff like polybags with only figure without any other parts than figure itself (+ accessories).
  9. Hmmmm...If it´s OK to sell things like this: https://www.lego.com/en-us/product/obi-wan-kenobi-minifigure-30624 then I see no problem with regular CMF line. If it would mean that the stand for minifigs will be brick-built like that instead of classic CMF plate...well I can live with that.
  10. Redroe: I remember that...Orc Forge!
  11. That Mandalorian set is the same price as 501st "battle pack". It would be nice to get similar concept there - more good guys against fewer villains + some vehicle/build. I would like to see the forge with Armorer, Mando, Paz Vizsla + 2 Stormtroopers.

    75290 Mos Eisley Cantina

    My only complaints are: 1) They could give us more complex built with more inner sections (there should be 4 + 4, not 3 + 3) 2) Arm printing, arm printing and arm printing (and dual molding) - why is Han in this expensive set without his dual molded legs? Ponda Baba and Greedo would look better with arm printing, too. Come on, it is not a battle pack, it´s huge exclusive set. I don´t think that anybody wanted new dewback prints.

    Unpopular Opinions related to Lego Star Wars

    I don´t think that anybody expected that old 2013 501st trooper. But army builders expected that LEGO will release new 501st troopers with better printing, using existing visor design (used before for Phase II clones, Kashyyyk troopers, Commander Gree, 212th Battalion, Geonosis troopers and Clone Gunners). Instead of that, they made completely new design.
  14. I remember that there were Aqualish senators in prequels.
  15. + they changed helmet design of FO Stormtroopers in 75166 from TFA to TLJ version.

    Coloring of the helmet is great, but the visor is too high for me, so I don´t like the helmet as a whole piece. I made some quick correction - the visor is now a little bit lower and the bottom curved part is more subtle. I would love if we could get an official helmet like this.

    Marvel Superheroes 2020 - Rumors & Discussion

    Nice, I made custom Iron Man using Macys´ legs from Nexo Knights. I don´t know what real suit it could be, but I think it looks good. I also added Monkey Kings´ arms to MK42 to make it more golden.
  18. C-3PO polybag, because of all those prints.
  19. Beskar forge...what if that "amazing first" thing is a light brick? :D :D

    Future Star Wars Sets

    There was not controversy...just some stupid people blaming LEGO for something inspired by the movie from the fictional place and time.
  21. I take SW UCS sets like large display models, so it´s good that it lacks play features, play features belong to MBS sets, imho.
  22. I don´t think that people are strictly against comic based sets, but they would rather welcome more Endgame sets now. Why? Because they want to complete their collections of their favourite characters from the last Avengers movie. From the biggest super heroes movie. From the movie which made $2,794,895,335 and still counting. They want original LEGO movie accurate minifigures, maybe even some nice builds. But when they will not get them, what then? Bootlegers are super fast - I see plenty of various MCU characters bootleg figures on instagram every day. I´m against all those knockoffs, bootlegs etc. and I would never buy them. But I don´t understand, why TLG doesn´t capitalize on this kind of demand. As a LotR and LEGO LotR fan (we never did get the 3rd wave with the Gondor), I fully understand the feelings of MCU LEGO fans. TLG can release some comic based sets literally anytime, but 2019/2020 could be the last opportunity for the Endgame sets.
  23. Or there will be two different versions of them in two sets - just like with the two variants of Death Trooper (battle pack/bigger set).
  24. It IS just "watermark", it was confirmed by the original poster on FB...so keep calm and enjoy new 16 minifigs.

    [PRESS RELEASE] 75936 - Jurassic Park

    ...and I disagree. As an AFOL, I don´t know why should I see some storytelling in this set. What I see? Iconic T-Rex...brick built T-Rex with great shape and even movable. Iconic JP gate. Finally not some down-scaled version of gate. I could live without those scene-vignettes in the back of the gate, but I take them as some kind of homage to the original Jurassic Park film. They are not meant to play with them. They are just there to remind us the original Jurassic Park film, full of mystery, adventure and fun. This set should be displayed on shelf, it´s not targeted on kids, I really don´t get all that disappointment (or even "frustration"...come on!). As i said above, I would be more happier, if they included Ford Explorer and the minifigs/display stand had more accurate JP logos on them, but I really like this set.
