    2016 Friends Sets - Rumours and Discussion

    You are absolutely right, CM4Sci! I totally forgot about Arendelle Castle Celebration Anna, and the new girl's wig is definitely Anna's wig in black! Sorry, my bad! So, does the presence of a school bus imply that Heartlake City is somewhere in the US or Canada?

    What a great find! Thank you! I think so! At first I thought it might be Cinderella's wig, but the bangs are parted on the wrong side, and it doesn't look like the new girl has a bun or the headband like Cinderella. Anna from Frozen has a hat and two braided pigtails. And Anna from Friends has a short bob haircut. The new girl seems to have a new hairpiece that looks like a ponytail. I can't wait to see a clearer image.

    Yes! The big image shown on the back of Puppy Day Care shows Mia scooping up some dog poop, and I thought that was funny. What a way to use the chocolate ice cream piece...

    It's not the same one as the one you are talking about. The new waffle/apple pie piece is a quarter of a flat round tile. You can see the close-up image of the pieces below: http://news.toyark.c...-friends-192303 See image #17.

    Yes, it does look like a waffle in that official image of cute items in the set. But see how the grid pattern is placed diagonally in the image I enlarged from the Toyark's Toy Fair photo: The thickness of these pieces is more like that of a Belgian waffle, but the surface pattern makes me think of an apple pie. I guess the official product description will soon tell us what it's supposed to be. :) (edit: I tried to post the enlarged image, but I couldn't do it... Sorry!)

    I thought they were waffle pieces, but upon closer look, I have to say they may also be apple pie slices based on the diagonal pattern. Either way, it's a new food piece, so I'm happy! I think these pieces are too small for stickers. :)

    I know! I think the new one is a quarter waffle piece, and with four of them, you can have a whole waffle! I've been excited about it since I saw it in Toy Fair pictures. :)

    LegoMyMamma posted a few images of 41133 Amusement Park Bumper Cars on this post: http://heartlaketime...iends-sets.html Here's one of them: The cotton candy wagon! Too bad the new character Ben appears to be just Julian with a different colored wig.

    Lego Elves 2016

    There is a new polybag coming out with Sira! 30375 Sira's Adventurous Airglider
  10. The cover of the second chapter book is out. :) It looks fantastic!
  11. I got the Elves Activity Book #1. It's only 32 pages long, and the majority of them consist of puzzles and similar activities. It also has a few story pages in the beginning and a couple of comic pages at the end, and the story is based on the mini-movie "Unite the Magic". The official LEGO Elves artwork is used here and there throughout the activity book, but you will see more additional artwork done by different people. Some of the LEGO books, like this activity book, are produced by AMEET, the Polish publisher, and they often contain artwork specially prepared for their books (not by LEGO). I personally prefer the stunning official artwork done by LEGO, but the AMEET artwork blends in pretty well. The problem is that there are only three or four different versions of the official LEGO artwork of the characters. So you see the same old artwork in this activity book as well as in the two magazine issues. There are plenty of kids magazines in the US, but I have noticed none of them come with any decent free gifts. If they did, the free gifts would probably get stolen anyway, in huge bookstores or places like Walmart where sales clerks are not watching over the customers. I don't know the real reason these LEGO magazines are not offered in the US, but if they ever come here, they will be sold either without the free toys or the magazines will be wrapped up in plastic.
  12. You are right about white being associated with the wind creatures! I was just thinking about lavender being the main color for the wind element, and it didn't occur to me that a white dragon with icy features can be a wind creature. The fifth element being love may sound cheesy, but I think it makes the theme more relatable for the target audience. After all, love is the only power even ordinary humans like us can possess. Webisode 4 is also quite interesting: the four elements cannot be combined unless Emily’s fifth element is there. I wonder if we will indeed see that come into play in 2016. I still hope there's room for yet another new element to be unveiled in the future. I thoroughly enjoyed the first LEGO Elves chapter book; Like you pointed out, it gives a lot of great details that the 22-minute mini-movie simply cannot cover. I think I grew to like the characters even more after reading the book. I’m definitely getting the second book when it comes out in January.
  13. Oh, that's exactly right! Now that you said it, I could hear it! Thanks!
  14. This is perfect! There's a part in Webisode 5 that I couldn't quite understand and I wanted to ask someone. What exactly did Farran say after saying "it's a stick" in the scene where Emily was opening the gift? It's interesting how Skyra (whom I believe to be a wind elf) is so powerful that she can control what happens in the sky (hence her name Skyra?) and can make snow appear! When I first saw that, I thought she might be a snow/ice elf as she can give the first impression of being a little cold-hearted. Did the snow she created awaken the white dragon at the end? Its white and icy design definitely makes me think of ice. I'm not familiar with the concept of elementals, but can ice be a new element to be discovered next year? The white dragon is clearly an important part of the next year's storyline, as its picture is included on the new box design. I think it would be cool if the dragon turned out to be a fifth elven friend of Emily's who had somehow gotten trapped in the dragon body... I'm not really into dragons, but since I like LEGO Elves, I'm looking forward to what will happen in Elevendale next year.

    19 new sets?! That's a lot more sets than usual; typically, there are 9-14 Friends sets per wave. During the two years when we had the animal packs, we had only 7-10 regular Friends sets, and in 2015 we got 12 new sets each wave. Perhaps the Friends line is expanding... Or this new list contains a few items for the second wave. I also feel some more sets may be missing; it's hard to imagine they come up with Amusement Park Hot Dog Van without other amusement park sets... If all those sets are supposed to be released in January 2016, I wonder if a few of them are actually small foil pack type sets under $5. Party Cakes and Party Styling sound like very small sets. I noticed that there's 41113 Party Gift Shop and 41132 Heartlake Party Shop... ???
