    LEGO LotR - general discussion

    Why do so many people think a LOTR set cannot make it as an Ideas project? I mean, they are releasing a Big Bang Theory set for crying out loud. Anything is possible, My Friends!

    LEGO LotR - general discussion

    Thanks for those links. I have supported most of them, but I will look through and support the others I missed. They all look great!

    LEGO LotR - general discussion

    ...So many comments about the Lego Ideas Minas Tirith set that has been gaining steam. It's not a matter of if it gets 10,000 votes to be considered. It's a matter of when. When I last checked, it's support was at 8,632 votes. It's already getting Lego's attention by staying on the front page of the site. At it's current pace, it very well could hit 10,000 votes by the end of the month. It's pretty much guaranteed at this point that this project will get to review. Regardless of how you feel about the project, that alone should be encouraging to all Lord of The Rings fans. I've shown the project to non-Lego collectors, but who are big Lord of the Rings fans, and they are very interested in purchasing it, if it does become a set. The idea here is to convince Lego that there is enough support and interest in this theme to make it worth the effort for Lego. I believe there is. I always thought that this set would be perfect for a Lego UCS set, and that would not take up much shelf space. One argument has always been that it was not worth it to Lego to keep the Lord of the Rings license to develop 1 set (if in fact they are discontinuing the production of all other LOTR sets). But lets consider some of the other Lego Ideas projects that have passed review and become official sets (Back to the Future, Ghostbusters, Minecraft,etc) Minnecraft was so successful that a new Lego theme was created, and from what i've seen the Back to the Future and Ghostbusters sets have sold well. These sets all required a license in order to sell them and they are just one set in the theme....the exception of course being Minecraft. In the end, if you want Lord of the Rings to continue, support the project, and support other Lord of the Rings projects. Even if it does not pass review, it is still getting Lego's attention, and if they see other Lego Lord of the Rings projects get that kind of support, that too will send a strong message to Lego.

    [75059] Sandcrawler

    I'm quite sure it's a better value then the Ewok Village. In the US, the Sandcrawler will retail for $50 more, but will have around 1,300 more pieces. I know some pieces are larger and smaller then others, but it's definitely a much bigger set then the Ewok Village. The only thing selling th Ewok Village IMO is the minifigs.

    2013 Galaxy Squad

    Yeh, you're right. I'm sure there will alway be a space them. . And what you said about the colors...very good point. Another thing is it is not marketed or hyped neary as much as Chima and Nijago. They had a chance to make it alot better. It has alot of potential. When I first saw it, I thought, "Lego Starship Troopers"... lol.... and thought they were drawing inspiration from that, but don't think so.

    2013 Galaxy Squad

    Well, that's too bad if that is the case. I really like the Galaxy Squad theme. I know many people will disagre with me, but I find it more interesting then some of the other space themes. The vehicles/spacecrafts look more detailed and interesting then past space themes, IMO. Even the mini-figs look more detailed. no offense to any Chima or Ninjago fans, but I like this theme better. It has a lot of possibilities if they continued to develop it. But apparenly that isnt going to happen. :(

    BrickLink changes hands

    no offense, but sounds like a load of BS to me. I've tried on my home network which runs off a NC server, and my work network which runs off a server in Pittsburgh, PA. I still get a message saying the site is down.
