    Which set should I buy?

    A cheaper alternative to acquiring the turtles is to buy the keychains and pull out the pin on the top. The downside is a hole on the top of the fig head and the fig's legs are glued to the torso.

    What's your latest acquisition?

    That's some great cat-mouflage and looking forward to seeing what you think about the set.
  4. Thank you for your effort in bringing us reviews on this new theme, I enjoyed reading your commentary. For the cost of this set, the gatehouse is a bit underwhelming. I would have loved to see more meat in the design. That being said, the figs printings are great. I am a big fan of the new battle helmet for the horse and I may get a few more off of BL. My opinion on the barding is going to be biased - It looks alright but not great. It's a little hard for me to accept this change since I am so used to the old design. Maybe it's just me, but what do you other castle enthusiasts think?

    Disney franchises selective?

    Disney does look like it has the lion's share of the liscensing pie - that is if you count SW among the liscenses it owns. I am sure TLC does not want 1 company to monopolize sales, but the success of the other liscenses rests in how well their media counterpart is received among kids. LOTR is a proven winner among AFOLs though I am not sure how well TMNT will do. In some ways TMNT is very similar to Ninjago (a theme TLC have invested a lot of $ in marketing) in their bulky vehicles, fantasy like characters, and the general ninja theme. In regards to your second point, I am sure both Disney and TLC does extensive research on how appealing their products will be to their target audiences. And like you've said, they can't fulfill all expectations which is why we had PoP going on clearance at all major stores.
  6. Thanks for sharing the deal. It looks like BOGO applies only to Galaxy Squad and City sets.

    I can also confirm that the b-wing will be half off this weekend. The set didn't really sell all that well.

    Lego Superheroes 2013 Rumours & Discussion

    I can somewhat relate to your frustration as I am waiting on the release of the comic con exclusive figures into the mainstream sets. We can only hope for the longevity of this theme so that more figures get released. On another note, does anyone know when preorder begins or when the video game officially hits the shelf?

    TMNT 2013

    just2good, you should be renamed just2fast! Thanks for doing the video reviews, I am definetely going to pick up one of each set from shop@home. Oh and Michelangelo's weapon is the nun-chuck. If anyone else is looking into buying the sets from TRU, they're doing a promotion with Wendy's. You get a $10 gift card if you spend $75 on toys. If anyone is interested here's the link to the info.
  10. Yoyo30 coupon seems to only work for new customers.

Captain Nemo; Instantly recognizable and a job well done on creating a brick version of Mad Love. MstrOfPppts; Nicely done on the shadowy figure on the other side of the door. Good luck to everyone who entered!
