    DC Superheroes 2019 - Rumours, Speculation & Discussion

    Oh, wow. My local Targets are still overflowing with CMF19. Hopefully those clear out during the holidays.

    DC Superheroes 2019 - Rumours, Speculation & Discussion

    Still about two months before the DC CMF drops, right? And are they $5/each as rumored?
  3. While, I would like a "Hall of Fame" series with the best figure from each of the past series just so I can get another shot at some of them, I feel like that would be a bad move by Lego unless they wanted the line to end at 20. A better bet would be the usual assortment of figures. If they really go $5 a piece, they should play it safe, so I'd expect alot of staple characters or multi-purpose characters. For example, as much as I like the ghost knight from CMF19, he's really limited unless you get other hands/heads.
  4. X-Men and Fantastic Four are getting alot of love in action figure form and even games like Heroclix. I'm betting they're gonna be making a huge splash in Lego too as the next big MCU properties.

    Is LEGO getting to inaffordable for kids?

    There's so many Lego bricks out there and for cheap, it'll never be unaffordable. And even if all you can get is a $10-15 set, you still have tons of possibility and alot more playtime than a number of comparable toy products out there. I didn't have a ton of Lego when I was a kid, but I had enough for days worth of entertainment and creativity provoking - more than any other action figure or video game.

    Which Themes Deserve a Reboot?

    Fantasy, like the stuff from 08. Orcs, trolls, etc.

    LEGO BrickHeadz 2020 - Rumors, Speculation, and Discussion

    Exciting news. Maybe Lego pulled the plug, but fan reaction got them to reconsider? Personally, I would have been fine with just the seasonal ones, but more licensed figures would be welcome, provided there is some kind of soft reboot. Some of the figures, like Star Wars Captain Phasma just don't hold up and maybe getting back to basics, like they started to with the Star Wars OT characters would help.
  8. The problem will be if the print is of poor quality, it's a design flaw and not something that would be worked out in another print. Just like the Captain America heads, this one with light printing over dark may be hard to match against other figures. It may look out of place.

    Lego Keychains

    Anyone collect Lego keychains? I’ve picked up a couple and they’re a nice sort of inexpensive impulse item. Easier than the build-a-minifigures, because I can just grab and go. Plus there’s a ton of characters and minifigure types out there.
  10. I think just the two movies, yes. I don’t even know if BW has started shooting yet. With Disney really pushing their streaming service, I think we’ll see a lot of product tie-ins.
  11. We might. Lego/Disney might need something to hold us over till the next big series.
  12. 20th anniversary Podracer. 2019 marks twenty years of Lego Star Wars and ten years of me collecting Lego.

    BrickHeadz 2019 - Rumours, Speculation and Discussion

    FYI - Walgreens in the US has started getting last year’s Easter Bunny in their Easter section. First time I’ve seen that set outside a Lego store.
  14. Hey, topic to discuss Funko collectibles. Funko makes a number of assorted items from popular IPs in different formats - Pop, Dorbz, Wacky Wobblers, mugs, keychains, etc. I thought this would be a good place to add a discussion, as the collectibles themselves remind me a lot of Lego, since they look like stylized versions of the IPs - kinda like Lego minifigures in a way. I personally have been collecting Pops for about a year and really started when they released the Marvel Collector Corp program. It's a subscription program where once every two months they send you a box of products, primarily with a Pop but also containing other Funko collectibles. Similar to Loot Crate or Nerd Block, but only with Funko products. I've enjoyed that enough that I've also subscribed to their Smuggler's Bounty program, which is the same just with Star Wars. Currently, I'm hunting down some of the Star Wars TFA and Marvel Civil War retail store exclusives. I mostly keep the exclusive ones boxed and open non-exclusives. My wife even has some that she displays at work. So, anyone else into Pops?
  15. $240 US for the whole wave kinda hurts and there’s nothing super new, except Zuckuss. Not sure if I want to be in, because if I am, I’ll have to be all in for the special anniversary minifigures. Also wondering if there won’t be a GWP promo minifigure offered at the same time as the sets; like maybe a Tarkin or Ben?

    Harry Potter 2019 - Rumors & discussion

    I’m surprised that even though Lego has/had a serviceable Star Wars Dewback mold, they went with a brick-built Dewback for the set. Makes me wonder if we’re likely not to see larger molds in the future, such as could be the case for HP dragons.
  17. My minifigure sets from the Lego store grand openings at the Alderwood Mall in 2012 and Southcenter Mall in 2015, both in WA. The Alderwood Mall set has a cool skyline of Seattle on the background, while the Southcenter one is fairly generic. I also really like the chrome red VIP keychain Lego mailed out to VIP members back in 2013. Then lastly, polybag Hulk from 2012.
  18. Not set related, but is there a thread for the LEGO Movie 2 trading cards? Just got three packs and each one had a gold foil, so seems those aren’t super rare if they’re one per pack. I did get a duplicate in the same pack, so that was too bad. The card stock quality is not the same as most trading cards and maybe comparable to something like a MTG card.

    BrickHeadz 2019 - Rumours, Speculation and Discussion

    I’ve seen the Clown, Dragon, and Dog at the Lego store. They also had a couple of the season-based ones from last year on clearance. The only licensed ones the Lego store here has is Leia. Glad I got Marty/Doc for clearance $15.

    Review: 70841 Benny's Space Squad

    Great review and a worthwhile set for the minifigures. If anything monochrome minifigure collector’s could find some value in these parts.

    BrickHeadz 2019 - Rumours, Speculation and Discussion

    I’d like that. LEGO could find a lot of success with their own home-brewed characters. For example, Brick Beard or Johnny Thunder - they should make the most of their own characters.

    Lego vs Zuru

    I don’t know why Lego would be worried. They beat out Hasbro’s Kreons and those are no longer produced. Bridge Direct and McFarlane both have failed lines, especially with TRU gone. Mega Bloks is the only competition and that’s just barely. Lego has no other company that can compete anywhere close to their product or licenses. Lego should pass on a lawsuit and just let these guys take their chances. Then when Lego crushes them, it’ll set yet another example.

    BrickHeadz 2019 - Rumours, Speculation and Discussion

    Thrilled the non-licensed Brickheadz are still going, since I have all of them so far. I can do without a Thanksgiving one, since I’m not savvy on it as a holiday in the first place.

    BrickHeadz 2019 - Rumours, Speculation and Discussion

    At least if anything the Brickheadz line can continue in custom builds by the fans. With the exception of some printed pieces, everything else is common enough.

    Post your general LEGO Star Wars questions here

    I think the past years have had a better main “Santa” figure that helped. Santa Yoda or Santa Vader were obviously good choices, for example.
