  1. Seeing as the new LEGO Tower game has a focus on pets and a place to enter codes, do you think that Series 19 might be tied into that game? They did it before for another short lived game.

    Future Castle Sets?

    TCould the shield be an one off such as the Leicester Square minifig with the UK flag under his suit jacket? While I would love a new Castle theme, I cannot imagine the Key Lions as a main faction. But I would be happy to be wrong. EDIT: corrected Leicester

    Future Castle Sets?

    I hope that shield in the Build a Minifig bar is a sign that something is coming soon. I did snag one at my local LEGO Store as well.
  4. That is not always the case. There was the Toys R Us signage that include a never before seen movie director. Along with it was a woman using the Statue of Liberty skirt piece. I also recently saw the wizard hat in the Build a Figure bar.

    Future Castle Sets?

    You have to enter the credit card when you pledge so you can see what the costs will be. https://www.bricklink.com/v3/crowdproject/main.page That said, both are in the 10 cents a piece that AFOLs love.
  6. Good catch on Reinhart's helmet. I am surprised that the new Lincoln top hat was not mentioned for the steam punk addition of the googles.

    EB Xmas Raffle 2018 - Your Santa MOC entry thread

    My favorite is very old school... Woden travels on Yule and leaves gifts for the kids that provide treats for his eight legged horse.
  8. I also think Castle Cavalry was intended to be a sort of bridge to the concurrent Castle theme. While that theme did not seem to gel with most of us here, that would make sense. With LEGO's increased portfolio of D2C, I hope perhaps they will feed us a nice nostalgia of a Black Falcon D2C Castle. Even if Castle comes back, I doubt it will have the target age range where the design is more AFOL friendly.

    Knights of the Round Table

    Excellent build. Have you considered adding four more knights? I do not think that would detract from the architectural part of the build but it would make it look less rigid.

    Future Castle Sets?

    I doubt horses will be redesigned any time soon as they were last updated with the Lord of the Rings sets. My ideal would be revisiting Kingdoms but they would certainly bring some more of the 80s factions into that esthetic. I would prefer most soldiers not have a faction emblem on their torsos. There has been some great chainmail prints in the CMF line.
  11. @Digger of Bricks I remember posting about that image years back when I saw it in Toys R Us. While we still might get a director using the megaphone from the Harry Potter series, that image is not a leak. As someone pointed out to me years back, the Statue of Liberty dress piece is a major clue that it is not a marketing piece.
  12. We never had any firefighters in CMFs. We could use both a modern one and a 19th century version.

    [Moc] Castle of Black Falcons

    This easily could have been a set that was released during my childhood. The retro feel is excellent.

    Gypsies

    These are amazing MOCs. I wanted to build some Romani carts myself. This may just inspire me to start them.
