    Nexo Knights 2016

    First: Thank you Klaus-Dieter for the description! Second: This description really leads me to believe this will be Chima 2.0. Still holding out for pictures before fully condemning this theme though... But it's becoming harder to stay positive with each new bit of information released. I don't get it when people say this. That's like saying: "I HATE movies." Or: "I HATE TV shows." You're saying you hate something that presents every genre. All anime aren't Saturday morning mindlessness like Naruto. Now, if you dislike the manga art-style, then that's another thing I guess.

    Perhaps it was a first for Lego, but color coded heroes are by no means a new idea. I know what you mean. I'm mostly hoping for nice, castle friendly prints. Torso, shields and such. If we do get nice castles and buildings instead of vomit vehicles, that's a bonus.

    Bionicle 2016 Sets Discussion

    I disagree. The original leaked images of Bionicle's reboot created an extremely high energy atmosphere was really fun. (albeit a bit silly most of the time sometimes) Imagine this subfourm during that time if a rule barring discussion on leaks was in in effect, this place would have been a ghost town. And for what reason? In case they turned out to be fake? As for a rule that would allow sharing of leaks while simultaneously preventing this kind of trolling... Maybe I'm falling short here, but I can't see how that would be at all possible. This isn't something site policy should try to fix IMO. Anyway, the death of Trollchir's leaks means that dark colored shells are a possibility for the Toa again! Is anyone else hoping for this? I've always thought that Dark Red and Earth Blue look so nice.

    Happy early birthday CM4Sci! Trans-yellow being abundant was the best thing about Trollchir's fake leaks. Sadly, I'm back to fully expecting trans-blue overuse.

    But the purging of the Keetorange was the best part of this "leak."

    Moc: Sword of Blizzard

    Very nice! I like the use of the transblue boulder for the pommel. Works really well. Like others have said, I'd make the handle a tad longer though. Still, great work!

    I'm with CM4Sci, I'll need proof before I believe such an outlandish claim! Really though, pretty smart Lego.

    Any chance of this theme being steampunk is dead. (unfortunately) Just look at the logo. Also, Nekchir has said there is abundant use of transyellow parts, that doesn't sound steampunk-y to me But that doesn't matter. Short of someone writing their name and store address on the catalog before leaking it, how would TLG ever pinpoint which store leaked any pictures? Judging by Nekchir's cautiousness, I assume it is possible, but I just can't think of how. Secret Danish spy technology?

    I could have sworn that the first leaks of Bionicle's reboot were stamped "Classified." Those pictures were posted around this site no questions asked. Has something changed or am I remembering something wrong?

    Same here. I was hoping for a flying/levitating castle, or moving legs. A castle on wheels doesn't sound nearly as appealing to me. But the golems sound great. Can't wait for pictures to leak!

    Hahaha So true. Awesome. Thanks Jagger. A mobile castle done right could be really neat. Note to self: The best way to get info on release dates is to start arguments. Preferably about gender, or possibly religion. Can do... Can do...
  12. Wow, these are popping up already huh? Better check my local Target and Walgreens. The cashier went on your word alone? "Ahem, yes, I believe they are 1$ each..."

    Aha. I knew it would be something obvious.

    REVIEW: 71010 LEGO Collectable Minifigures Series 14

    Thanks for the great review WhiteFang! Not a huge fan of this series overall. A lot of the figures are well designed, but don't appeal to me personally. My favorites are the Gargoyle, Fly Monster and (surprisingly) Monster Scientist. I'm still undecided on the Plant Monster and Banshee. I consider the Gargoyle to be one of the best minfigs this entire series has produced. These close up pictures only strengthen that view for me. The Fly Monster, while not super useful for my castle oriented world, is just too well designed to pass up. The Monster Scientist really grew on me. When I first saw him I thought he was terrible... Now I actually like his super weird appearance. The only real disappointments for me are Squarefoot and Specter. The former could really benefit from some torso printing, and the later just outright looks bad in my opinion.

    Thanks for posting this! Interesting. "Paladum" is probably a play on/combination of paladin and dumb. Or maybe palladium? But what about Mixadel? I can't think anything castle related in that name.
