  1. I read the last 2 pages and saw nothing, didn't think Brickset was that behind the news. I guess it's the price of having to clear every news item with TLG to check if it's a leak or not...
  2. Nobody has mentioned the 4 Spider-Man sets with pics shown on Brickset? I hate the vehicles, but some of the figs look appealing. Will need to see that Sandman in more detail... https://brickset.com/sets/76134-1/Spider-Man-Doc-Ock-Diamond-Heist https://brickset.com/sets/76133-1/Spider-Man-Car-Chase https://brickset.com/sets/76114-1/Spider-Man-s-Spider-Crawler https://brickset.com/sets/76113-1/Spider-Man-Bike-Rescue

    Stretchers of that style are still in use around here, I saw EMTs using one not three days ago.

    I can't stand that animation style and the Dimensions Teen Titans minifigs were horrible.

    Harry Potter 2018 - Rumors & Discussion

    Thank you for the insights! This set looks great, can't wait to see more of the theme. And I am saying this even though I am not a huge HP fan and don't own a lot of older HP sets (2010 castle and a handful of others).

    Maybe some bizarro EU regulation that they cannot include the word just in one language

    Not directly related, but I just realized that the new CMF18 Cat costume + this Catwoman head + this hair gives us a decent Marvel Black Cat stand-in:

    Damn. Will have to get them all, including at least one more Sanctum without figs in order to make a larger building (or two).

    That Ninjago bigfig doesn't even look like LEGO anymore.

    [PRESS RELEASE] 10260 - Downtown Diner

    There are many diners incorporated into multistory buildings. I am currently leaning towards buying 2, I'm just not sure if I want to make the ground floor symmetric or just have one huge diner window with a door to one side. I'd also like to see how it looks with white instead of tan for the upper floors...

    Modular Building Sets - Rumours and Discussion

    Every single kid I know GREATLY enjoys switching minifig parts, faces included. You are describing one possible play pattern which is supposedly more valid than the other, I posit that the "snapshots" play pattern is far more prevalent than you are willing to admit, especially with the older audience (which modulars are explicitly aimed at, they are 16+). Also, why don't you answer my premise that smiley faces are incredibly inappropriate as the "neutral" expression? Could it be that they are not, in fact, neutral?

    And if you rename Palace Cinema "Empire" you can stage a certain event from Bruce Wayne's past there...

    Modular Building Sets - Rumours and Discussion

    Yeah, because it was so easy to project whatever we wanted to the smiling faces of Lion Knights and Black Falcons while they were disemboweling themselves. Or the smiling face of a Dragon Knight who ran into a ghost. Or the smiling face of a Futuron monorail operator being held at gunpoint by Blacktron raiders. Even if LEGO City is supposed to be a Roddenberry-style utopia (and it's not, it's a police state run by the Octan corporation), smiley faces look ridiculous in many other themes. Now, if the default face had a neutral expression instead of a smile, your argument would have merit. This way, it's purely nostalgia speaking.
