    Marvel Superheroes 2021 - Rumors & Discussion

    Who am I to disagree with such a passionate argument? lol. I agree there are some flaws but with a $30 dollar price tag I feel the designers did a pretty good job. Yes there are some details that don’t match up but we get that with almost every set based on a tv or movie. As far as the figures, we will get a more accurate Captain Carter with the CMF so that’s not that big of a deal. I think the majority of the hate comes from the fact most people just didn’t want another mech. I like it, you hate it. To each their own.

    Marvel Superheroes 2021 - Rumors & Discussion

    I just built the Hydra Stomper after watching the first episode and I have to say I don’t get all the hate towards it. Sure, it would have looked more accurate if they had used olive rather than the darker green but the mech is cleverly designed and a fun build. The set also gives us variants of two characters that we probably won’t have a chance to get again. Personally I’m really hoping for more What If sets in the future.

    Marvel Superheroes 2021 - Rumors & Discussion

    With Marvel’s What If show just around the corner I’ve been inspired to build a more accurate Erik Killmonger minifig based on his appearance in the What If trailer. I have the figure from the royal talon fighter set but I’m looking for a head and hairpiece that are closer to the mark. There don’t seem to be any good existing dreadlock pieces out there but I’m willing to purchase a good custom hairpiece or go for shorter hair if anyone has any suggestions. Thanks in advance!

    Harry Potter 2020 - Rumors & Discussion

    I’m a little surprised and disappointed that we didn’t get a Grimmauld Place or Tonks and Kingsley for this wave. I’ve literally been waiting 13 years for an official version of that set and those characters. But the inclusion a CoS version of Privet Dr. gives me a small hope that it may be made in the future. I have followed most of the well-known Lego leakers for years and I’ve never heard of these folks, does anyone know if they’ve ever scooped anything before? They seem like they’re legit so hopefully their list comes to fruition.

    Harry Potter 2019 - Rumors & discussion

    If anyone is interested, Amazon US finally has all of the Harry Potter sets in stock. They are a little tricky to find right now however. I had to search for them using only the name of the set without the word Lego or set number. But they’re all in stock and if you’re a prime member they have one-day shipping for them. I’ve been sitting on several hundred dollars worth of Amazon gift cards to use for these sets so it’s been a long wait for me ?.

    They are incredible and well worth investing in them all, especially based on the resell prices of Harry Potter sets in the past. Quite honestly for what you get in each set the prices are quite reasonable as well. The detail and thought that went into each set is light-years beyond the older versions. For example, I have the 2001 Hogwarts Express and side to side the 2018 version is so much more impressive, just the locomotive alone.

    For those interested, Target has the Hogwarts Express in stock online. Hurry, it says there are only 3 left.

    Listen, I work in administration and I know that it can be a taxing job to have to manage a large group of people. Sometimes you just have to take a firm tone when you were dealing with an issue. So I have no issues with the way you approached the problem. In fact, I appreciate how efficiently and effectively you and your staff run this website, especially since you do it for free. All I am concerned about is that we part ways on this topic with no hard feelings. Thanks for your time.

    I respect your point of view and I appricate your tact in addressing the matter.

    The person suspected of creating the leaks themselves posted here on Eurobricks that exact link to that thread, accusations and all. Otherwise I would've had no idea whom the leaks could have come from. Listen, I I have nothing but the utmost respect for you and your staff. And I certainly wouldn't presume to tell you how to run your site. That there is a possibility that a member of this site was the origin of leaks that it caused a certain level of chaos on many Lego fansites is disappointing. This is your site and your rules and I'm happy to drop the topic.

    With all due respect Hinckly the accused is the exact person who I received this information from. I'm sure you have seen the link to the thread all over your own site, not to mention many of the other main Lego fan sites. I did not name the person but simply posted the exact information that the person posted themselves in the form of the link. Nor did I accuse the person of the wrongdoing, merely stated that I hope that the accusation is wrong.

    Really disappointed that line was based on a fabrication. The whole thing originated from this thread with some strong accusations towards a Eurobricks member potentially creating the false leak. I for one, would be very disappointed if the accusations turn out to be true. https://boards.4chan.org/toy/thread/5808966/lg-lego-general-take-my-money-editon

    Wow, that list was very helpful! Thanks! I would much rather see another Black Pearl than a ghost ship. Ghost ships don't seem to translate to Lego very well. But I'm crossing my fingers for a Dying Gull...

    Wow, so many amazing ships! So Lego has made Queen Anne and the Black Pearl already, correct? So I'm guessing that it would it be more likely that we will get Jack's Rainbow Gypsy and one of the newer larger ships rather than a remake of the other two. Besides the ships it would be great if the made a set of a dock or harbor. I've always wanted a set of one of those...
