    Latest news about Lego animal moulds

    Yeah, Errol is a gray owl in the movies, so jury still out there. From the markings I’d guess it’s supposed to be a great horned owl - or something similar. Bulldog I have no idea about. Seems a little odd to get a bulldog so soon after the French bulldog ...

    That’s a different deer mould.

    DC Superheroes 2019 - Rumours & Discussion

    These are all awesome so far, and for the most part just what I was hoping for from this series. Seems clear they’re testing the water for further series by being quite specific with variants.

    ... and cats, and dogs, and some convenient new patronus moulds too
  7. Hey @Roebuck you know I share some of your likes, especially when it comes to animals, but I really can’t get my head around being negative about any themed or licensed series in this way. Especially ahead of seeing what we are getting! To my mind, there’s usually *something* we wouldn’t get otherwise, and quite often some nice surprises (dolphin in TLBM CMF2, the awesome mouse in series 18, and Toto in TLM2, for example). I guess I view the figures as much as parts providers as I do the complete figure. I never realised for example, how much I *needed* the trousers with the printed check shirt tied around that’s in s19 until I saw the programmer figure - a figure which, if i’d just heard the name of, I could have dismissed. Yet she comes with those legs, great new face prints, *and* an easy way to get that new hair piece. Thanks for doing the extensive listing, it’s interesting to see these in the round, and it does show how some themes are less or better represented than we often think! I’ll be commiserating with you when we get a themed series that just gives us a new ‘space kitty’ mould, though of course. 😉

    Fingers crossed for Batmite
  9. Indeed. And it’s a figure with leg printing, a printed fabric towel piece, a recoloured duck accessory and two face prints. Hardly scrimping.

    Yeah that list has too few female characters to be real, too.

    Pretty sure they are the faces for the two ‘balloon kids’ in CMF series 18

    Including main characters in each series is sound marketing, nothing else.
  13. Indeed. Though I think her bike mould was actually introduced in the ‘outdoors’ people pack ...

    Another good measure of what works in DC collectable series for general audiences are the series of Imaginext DC figures in blind bags. Each series (usually 6 in each series) has obscure figures but always features at least two or three ‘big hitter’ character variants ( batman, joker, superman, WW repeatedly). That said, it has produced some we have yet to see in Lego such as Dr Fate, Black Adam, Black Lightning, Vixen who I wouldn’t be surprised to see in a CMF series. I think some of the characters who are in current / recent tv adaptations, such as Young Justice and Arrowverse are quite likely too.
