  1. The LEGO Batman Movie Set/CMF Rumors & Discussion

    I'd have preferred it if they gave him some kind of water blast effect myself, as water is my favourite "classical" element, but I appreciate Zan was never a good representative of the element's power. I second this, as Terry is easily my favourite version of Batman and Batman related character in general. It's bad enough Bizzaro was one (fingers crossed they'll one day correct this by including him in a set) but I really hope they don't do something like that again. I believe any sort of exclusive should be restricted to variant costumes as it's otherwise shooting collectors who can't go in the foot. As for the wave, the Batman, Batgirl, Alfred, Joker and Robin figures are all passes to me but the villains and especially heroes are all must buys.
  2. LEGO Nexo Knights 2018

    Same here. I think I said this before, but I love elemental based super powers, especially for the "overlooked" ones like Water and Wood. Considering all the great new Lightning parts we got with the stone army and the upcoming Fire and Ice ones with 2018 DC, it would have been great to see what they'd have done with Wood and my personal favourite, Water. That's not to say I'm not interested in the Techno Vampires. I'm not up to date on the latest leaks but they do sound like they'll be interested, especially if we get some new parts, but I'd have still loved to see Water and Wood as well as Fire and Lightning.
  3. LEGO Ninjago 2018

    Second. I'm always happy to have more ninjas in my Ninjago Minifigure display. I'd love to have figures of Skylar and Nelson in "film versions" of their ninja garb, even if they don't get a role in the film and it's more of a "what if".
  4. LEGO Ninjago 2018

    As someone who generally prefers mini figures to sets I am glad we're getting SoG as well as/rather than another movie wave. I also have to say that I prefer how the costumes look in the leaked pictures so far. I feel the movie suits are all too dark, bland and similar due to their heavy usage of black/dark colours, with the exception of Zane who in turn sticks out like a sore thumb (note I don't own Nya yet, so this opinion may change). I much prefer how the 2018 suits are looking due to how colourful and, in turn, more unique they all come across. I'm also curious about the new spinner you, especially if it provides us with a cheaper way to get the six ninjas or an alternative design like Airjitzu did a few years back. Of course my opinion could change when the photos are released but for now I'm liking what I've seen.
  5. LEGO Ninjago 2017 Discussion

    I feel the same way. While I do like how the new suits look, I have to say I'm pretty meh on the wave in general so will focus more on the the cheapest sets to get me the six ninjas and/or buying them loose on eBay, and maybe get two of each so I can give them their old faces and hair. I have also been curious about the future of Ninjago after the movie; will it continue with the "old continuity" or continue to follow the movie one? Personally, I'm hoping for the former and treat the movie as it's own separate iteration.
  6. LEGO Ninjago 2017 Discussion

    I'm surprised the upcoming figure is Lloyd, as they've not done him before. In fact I ended up making my own "version" as I wasn't expecting them to make one of him. The Vermillion figure does look great and I will get it, but I hope this doesn't mean they'll skip Nya. I know I can just buy one off eBay, and I am looking into it but she's seemingly rare and expensive so one from a magazine will be a little easier on the wallet.
  7. LEGO Ninjago 2017 Discussion

    While I agree, I am glad to see Lego add a Dao to their lineup of molds, and hope it means some kind of Chinese Warrior is on the cards for a future CMF line.
  8. Oh you're not alone; I think he's one of the best in the wave (but then I am very picky on which ones I get and 90% of the "City" ones are an instant pass for me). I can see him working well in my "warriors" display (even though I've avoided gun wielding characters, at least until now). It's a simple design but one I like and I may get a second to try and customise him into an assassin, as I've heard some make the comparison. I think the problem is, as others have said, Lego bending over backwards to hide him for reasons that still baffle me.
  9. I agree with both, but at least the review says it's a common figure. I never bothered with Mr Gold due to how rare (and admittedly unappealing) it was.
  10. LEGO Ninjago 2017 Discussion

    As someone who played (and loved) Final Fantasy VII, that isn't the first time I've seen a ninja fight with a pin wheel . I have the Zane from the "Titanium Ninja Tumbler" who I've been displaying unmasked with Cole and Jay. I'll likely pass on that pack and instead get the two golden gun parts to make my own version of the dual golden pinwheel.
  11. LEGO Nexo Knights 2017 Discussion

    Funnily enough, I was thinking of something similar earlier. As a fan of element based powers, I've always felt there is more merit to the "under used" elements than the overused three (fire, lightning and ice), especially as they require a bit more understanding of the "science" behind it than just "Hit the opponent really hard with Fire/Ice/Lightning". I would like to see Nexo go to four years so they can do a year of water and a year of wood; as I've said elsewhere I'd love to see what new parts they could come up with for those elements. That being said, I do agree with you that to the average kid probably wouldn't have the same level of interest in seeing originality with elements and, like my younger self, wouldn't see how "powerful" water or wood would be.
  12. LEGO Nexo Knights 2017 Discussion

    Same here. I would like it to continue, especially if the Water and Wood monsters a companion book refereed to pan out. I love the new lightning piece and would like to see other "new element pieces", especially for underused elements like water and wood.
  13. LEGO Ninjago 2017 Discussion

    Someone earlier in this thread said something about a 1st of March release date, so I'm going to start browsing the sites after then. The number is 853687-1 which should help when it comes to finding it at launch.
  14. LEGO Nexo Knights 2017 Discussion

    I had not, so thanks for that. I really liked the five battle suits released so far, and was a little disappointed no more were shown during the Toy Fair. I will definitely look at getting that one; do you have any idea on when it will be released?
  15. I clean forgot about him, and I did get one for my "Horror" display to portray him and the creepy girl as the children of the vampires. However I was thinking more classic Universal style monsters like the Invisible Man or an Aquatic Creature. However I appreciate that discussion is better suited for the wish list thread.
