  1. Big box on Lego Facebook?

    Between all the grey bricks in the preview today and size, it's the MF.
  2. Disney's Future with Lego

    The question I would have is given Disney's interest in it's own streaming service and they're own action figure line (Star Wars Elite), could Disney one day develop their own brick-built product and abandon Lego? Disney is really able to do anything right now and their only recent product failure was Infinity, but that was plagued from the beginning.
  3. Lego appoint new CEO

    I would venture to say US sales number declines are in part because so much hype occurs for each movie that people are moving on from licensed set to licensed set too fast. Right now summer SW sets are shelfwarming because people are saving up for Force Friday when the new hotness drops. We're seeing the same thing in the action figure market with SW and Marvel - it's hard to move slow product when all slates have to be wiped for new stuff. There used to be more time for stuff to sell through because there wasn't always the next movie deadline.
  4. I'm hoping for an anniversary set for each of the major themes - City, Castle, Space, etc. Kinda like the small white-boxed promo minifigures and sets from the past couple years - Space for 2014, Castle for 2015, Pirates for 2016. It could be a great re-occurring theme of anniversary sets or reissues.
  5. I compare it to what Funko has done with rainbow Batman Pops. They just used the same mold and re-colored so it felt lazy and like a money-grab. At least here Lego is providing advanced printing and new accessories.
  6. Marvel Superheroes 2017 - Set Discussion

    But concept art doesn't count - only what actually ends up in the movie...
  7. Marvel Superheroes 2017 - Set Discussion

    I'm sure once we see Hulk in action in the Thor movie, people's opinions will change and this figure will be sought after. We'll be able to overlook that shade of blue.
  8. I thought the movie was great and handled the mythos of Batman almost better than some of the live-action stuff. The fact that DC/Warner could poke fun at themselves and Batman was refreshing. This CMF line also supports that concept. The character selection is goofy enough that it works and all the various Batsuits are very well done. I'm definitely more of a Marvel guy, but collecting variations of Iron Man suits and other costumes every movie gets alittle boring. At least here, I'm starting a Batsuit collection and it's both fun and engaging.
  9. [MOC] Batman Forever Batmobile

    Batman Forever is a pretty good movie and I thought Val Kilmer pulled off Bats and Bruce Wayne both equally well. This version of the Batmobile looks great. It's very sleek and detailed and looks like a rolling missile. Very well done!
  10. LEGO BrickHeadz Wishlist and Ideas

    X-Men all day. Doctor Who. Ghostbusters. Lord of the Rings.
  11. THE GREATEST CMF ROUND 3

    Elf. I remember hunting those down back in the day. And the printing still stands up today.
  12. [MOC] Judge Dredd Brick Built Figure

    That lower lip is hilarious and appropriate. Very well done - it looks great.
  13. Future Star Wars Sets

    Palpatine's Areest would be a great set to update, as Anakin and Kit could both use a once over. Maybe even updated Jedi with robe printing instead of capes. On the flip side Invisible Hand with Grievous caped would be awesome.
  14. LEGO Star Wars 2017 Pictures and Rumors

    Printing on Boba Fett for the UCS Slave I was a win, here the extra printing is not so much.
  15. Marvel Superheroes 2017 - Set Discussion

    Agreed that the hair and face printing isn't really working on that figure. It looks like it needs more "glam" like the character seems to have.
