    LEGO Hidden Side 2020

    Those have already been announced, a full set of shorts for the new wave plus a longer special (rumored to be a Halloween special) im banking on this being something else since he’s the one who announced those things already and was fairly open about it at the beginning of the year.

    The docks and the city both look great on their own, I highly doubt the gardens will be worse. If anything I would guess the gardens will be a “new start” of sorts for the city since it is likely to be rebranded as a series/legacy item instead of a movie one

    LEGO Hidden Side 2020

    https://mobile.twitter.com/TommyAndreasen/status/1305590480391016450 so we are getting SOMETHING new. I have to wonder if the reason we aren’t seeing any hidden side leaks is because this is the end of the story, and will pick up with a retooled version of the theme under a new name later next year. It’s not like LEGO doesn’t listen to fan complaints sometimes, so to see the theme retooled to ditch the app focus and introduce some new villains/monsters/whatever wouldn’t surprise me. Heck, if this story ends with them sealing away the ghosts for good then it wouldn’t even make sense to keep calling the theme hidden side.

    Monkie Kid TV Show Thread

    A trailer for season one has dropped online, no English version yet. It doesn’t show too much plot-wise but definitely does still have stuff held over from wave 1 along with the new wave 2 stuff, and seems like it will be expanding on the iron bull plot a good bit as well as introducing the new villains that were hinted at in the pilot and intro. Given they know they’ll have atleast 2 seasons to work with now, I would expect the pacing to be far better than the pilot which HAD TO showcase everything in some way or another.

    Who plays batman in the Lego Movie?

    The likely reason for the multiple answers is because Batman is played by different people in the different movies. The ones in the “LEGO movie” series are will arnett, but the cheaper, direct to dvd movies use someone else, if not multiple other people, who I’m not sure the names of. He was also voiced by different actors in the games based on the LEGO movies and the LEGO dc games, which may add to the list.

    I’ve only seen the smaller sets at Walmart (one Walmart had the fire-stone mech and that’s the biggest of anything that showed up) targets have been stocking them consistently though in my area, all of them have atleast most of the sets.

    LEGO Monkie Kid 2020

    For now, we know that flying bark studios is producing at least 2 seasons of the show (it’s unknown if they got picked up for 2 after the pilot or 2 MORE after a season 1 that they’re already working on.), and it’s HIGHLY unlikely LEGO would sink the money in to production if they weren’t going to make sets. Plus, there are still a couple villains introduced in the pilot who haven’t hit sets yet, and one of the heroes too. all in all I’d be very surprised if this wasn’t continuing for a good while. Atleast a 3 year series if I had to guess.

    LEGO Monkie Kid 2020

    Considering they’ve now ordered multiple seasons of the cartoon, and the stuff said about crazy turnout for the launch events, and the “bonus” 4 set wave releasing just a few months afterword, I would guess they are doing pretty well so far in China. lego listens to fan complaints pretty frequently too, so I’m sure by now they’ve heard the want for smaller sets and will likely make them. One thing you can get from that documentary is that the second wave of sets was developed with the first and held back a few months for whatever reason. They present the flaming foundry and cloud roadster as if they were part of wave 1 in that special. I think that goes a long way to explain why they “didn’t listen” to fans saying they wanted small sets yet, since they’ve not shown anything yet that was designed after the series initial reveal. so for now, I’d say things are looking pretty good for the future of the theme. it’s got room to grow, sure, and time will tell how the so far positive western reception will impact the release of future waves or media, But it’s quickly gaining a following, the designers are putting out some stellar models, and the people working on the show are making some solid content.

    The documentary thing that was released did show the animated version of kid wearing a helmet and, presumably, a new outfit to go along with it. Hopefully those make it into sets.

    More LEGO Ghostbusters in 2020?

    Promo image of the original 4 ghostbusters and ideas ecto 1 fighting a non-LEGO stay puft has shown up on legos instagram. That combined with the gb’s being the first ever licensed characters in LEGO legacy is definitely lending credence to the idea that the line isn’t finished just yet.
  11. It was hated for being, largely, everything bad about thunder cats, with few of the redeeming qualities, a bad tv show that managed to alienate fans of both the (at the time) current thundercats and ninjago, being seen as a lackluster attempt to replace both without understanding what made either good. the show was awful, with grating voices, unlikable characters, botched drug allegories, inconsistent tone, and a predictable story (oh, the conflict of the season is over, but the villains throw the chi away to where the NEW villains are, rinse-repeat) the sets on the other hand, start off great. Then they keep going. And going. And going. With similar parts and homogenous designs for each tribe. I get that the gimmick is “the vehicles look like the animal!” But man it got old, especially once the garish orange fire add-ons got introduced. Oh you have 7 vehicles shaped like a lion already? How about MORE OF THAT, but with WORSE COLORS. While the builds are solid on their own, it just felt like wave after wave of very similar vehicles with very similar minifigs. while similar problems would crop up in themes like nexo knights (similar colors and unfitting accents in some waves) or ninjago (repetitive themes for some story arcs), chima got hit with it essentially right out of the gate, not giving people the time or motivation to get invested in the characters or story to a point where they could look past those things. As 1 dimensional as the characters of nexo could be, they were decently voiced, had good, if standard, plots to react to, and each had a distinct personality, without introducing so many characters you can’t keep track of. As repetitive as ninjago could be at its worst, by the time it hit That point the Characters were fleshed out enough that a whole season could get by on how the focus character is dealing with that problem/villain differently than other characters (contrast the tournament of elements to skybound, both have a quirky antagonist crew picking off the ninja one by one, but since one focused on Kai and one on jay, they ended up very different, one deconstructing the “designated main character” tropes, and one focused on “what happens if you break the comic relief character” chima on the other hand came out of the gate with a TON of characters all vying for attention, starting off with a betrayal plot that doesn’t work because we don’t KNOW the characters yet. It felt bloated and weird, as if there were missing chapters to the story, and again, I can’t get over the voices, watching More than a few episodes of the show At a time gave me headaches. tldr, and sorry about the wall of text: Add together too many characters to actually care about starting out, botched morals, pissing off multiple potential fan groups by releasing at a bad time, repetitive builds with garish gimmick-overdosed “fire and ice” add ons later, and you get legends of chima. A series who’s good ideas were constantly buried under strange missteps and a combination of all the major problems LEGO themes face at once.

    LEGO Ninjago 2020

    Yeah I can definitely see the fire-stone mech being miscommunicated as “stone mech with one half covered by fire” or something similar to that, leading to the show crew seeing “all stone mech but with magma and fire covering one side” and the set team seeing “mech that is half themed to earth and half themed to fire”

    LEGO Monkie Kid 2020

    Bull king is just a large brick built figure, but yeah other than him it’s all vehicles, even if some of the vehicles pull double duty as a base or have environments as side builds.

    Dream Lego Licensed Themes

    Mostly agree With your points, as much as I want it to happen it’s not realistic, unless the odd amount of new merch for the show is because of plans for a new one after the movie (those “fright feature” figs for afterlife certainly do have a cartoonish art style, like halfway between real and the idw comics...) the similar products thing I do disagree with though. although all the playmobil stuff says real ghostbusters on it and uses the cartoons as character Design inspiration, all the sets are original vehicles to playmobil, leaving stuff like the toon ecto 1, 2, 3, ichi, aquatic ecto-1, any of the large ghosts, or play sets bases on any of the locations actually from the show (power plants, labs, etc.) as fair game.

    Dream Lego Licensed Themes

    I would absolutely love a wave of “real ghostbusters” sets. They’ve got a lot of material to work with, with more vehicles and large ghosts that could be brick built than the movies had, and the colorful jumpsuits and blue proton packs would be distinct variants from the movie minifigs. Plus they’ve already got the ghostbusters license so doing a wave based on the show instead of the movie shouldn’t be impossible, and with playmobil and hasbro both releasing products based on the toon, those designs will be back in fresh circulation.
