    DC Superheroes 2020 - Rumors & Discussion

    I wonder if the Snyder Cut news/release will drive up aftermarket prices on those three sets.

    Marvel Superheroes 2020 - Rumors & Discussion

    Really liking these new sets. - Non-MCU inspired Hulkbuster with the flat head is great, along with a more "classic" Rescue. - Avengers Tower looks like a huge upgrade from the underwhelming 2015 version based on Age of Ultron. The minifigure selection is alright. - Loving the Iron Man helmet, and the fact that the Helmets line seems to be expanding beyond just Star Wars. Interesting that the box uses the "IRON MAN" logo from the 2008 film, yet the display plaque uses a different Avengers logo.

    Super Mario 2020 - Rumors & Discussion

    I would imagine a D2C would buck the trend of electronic toy/game and do something more traditional. Bowser's Castle sized for minifigs would be the first thing I can imagine, though an airship would be great as well.

    Super Mario 2020 - Rumors & Discussion

    Pokemon usually has its merchandise licensing handled separately from the rest of Nintendo's IPs though. I know that was a reason that the World of Nintendo toy line from Jakks Pacific a few years ago couldn't use anything from Pokemon. It's more hoops to jump through because of the Pokemon Company. Speaking of, that toy line actually gives a pretty good benchmark of what Nintendo has full control of for merchandise, and therefore what could show up in Lego form. The franchises featured there included Mario, Zelda, Splatoon, Animal Crossing, Star Fox, Pikmin, and Metroid. Notable absences were Pokemon and Kirby. Fire Emblem wasn't included either but that might have just been a choice on which figures to make.

    LEGO and Universal sign new deal

    This is disappointing news for me, as I was looking forward to seeing what else would come of the current franchise. I assume this means the Billion Brick Race and Batman sequel are all canned?

    LEGO Masters US Show

    So my thoughts on the finale... Excited for season two!

    LEGO Masters US Show

    I'm finally caught up and very excited for the finale tomorrow. Still sad that (and they would have been so good in the Star Wars challenge!) but the three remaining teams should put up a good battle for the finale. I am especially impressed with the progress that Sam and Jessica have made over the course of the season. I remember thinking in the first week that they would be the first team to go home. They've really stepped up their game and their Crait model was my personal favorite of the Star Wars scenes. Will Arnett has been an amazing host for the show. I love all of his meta quips and jabs at typical reality shows, as well as his interactions with all the teams while the build process is going on. To be honest, I'm not a huge fan of some of the guests that have come on the show. Obviously for me, Phil Lord and Chris Miller were the shining examples because they have a strong connection to Lego and that worked perfectly in with the "movie genre" challenge. The others, such as Terry Crews and the woman from the Storybook episode (blanking on her name at the moment) are fun but ultimately just feel thrown in to bring in viewers. It's understandable, but sometimes I wish it was just Will and the Brickmasters. Overall, I've had a great time watching this show and it's brought Lego back into my mind more than it often is recently, which is probably the point. I can't wait for the finale and I hope a second season comes along just as exciting as this one! Huge thanks @KotZ for filling in a lot of my behind-the-scenes questions.

    The figure in the video looks strange, but I am still very excited. Especially if this leads to other Nintendo properties as themes.

    Marvel Superheroes 2019 - Rumours, Speculation & Discussion

    One point I will add to the "Rescue was based on concept art" debate: I've seen a lineup of Endgame Hot Wheels at my Target which depicts characters as cars. Rescue has a blue car with her art clearly being blue on the box. Unless Lego does stuff way before other companies, the blue color was known. Overall mixed feelings on the set. Color aside, it is nice to get Rescue, and Hulk with the gauntlet is a great surprise, especially the new gauntlet mold. Only wish he was wearing the grey and purple suit instead. The rest falls flat for me but does give hope of other sets released alongside to fill in some gaps.

    LEGO 2019 Stranger Things Rumours Discussion

    This is the most exciting thing about the whole situation for me. I like Stranger Things, and if the leak is real the set looks pretty great, but I'm really looking forward to see if this opens the gates on some "adult" licenses.

    Rick's Portal gun

    This is amazing! Instantly recognizable, and really clever use of that dome piece.

    Vulture looks alright, nothing too special. But that Sandman is fantastic. That's what I've wanted since Lego started making Spidey sets again.

    Hopefully, it's real, I need some news on this thing. I've been holding off on buying any more IW sets until I find out what the requirements for this set will be.

    Maybe we'll get them with a werewolf Lupin since they love giving HP so many new molds.
