    LEGO 2019 Stranger Things Rumours Discussion

    I'll have to disagree, I think the set is superb as is. A regular house & car would have been just boring compared to what we got. The set captures the essence of the show in a single build that I think looks great on display, and it was fun to build as well. I don't expect to see any more Stranger Things sets unfortunately, even though personally I would have like to have more ST minifigures. We can always hope though, maybe season 4 will have some memorable scenes just begging to be made into sets.

    LEGO 2019 Stranger Things Rumours Discussion

    An interesting tidbit from the Q&A sessions with Jamie Berard and Jan Beyer at Skærbæk; Jamie asked if we liked the Stranger Things set (which a lot of people did, no surprise). He then talked a little about how it was an exciting time at LEGO, that they now are able to do sets that previously would not have been possible to do (I understood this as a change in internal policies with regards to sets aimed at adults, but he never said so directly as far as I can remember). The Upside Down was the first of these, and it was brought to market in about 6 months which is a lot quicker than what is normal for a LEGO set. He hoped they would bring us more sets like that in the future. Just to be clear, he was not talking about future Stranger Things sets, but in general. Pretty exciting stuff I think! Stranger Things is my favourite set so far this year, and I would love to see more high quality D2C sets from other current IP's. A quick disclaimer: This is all from memory (which has been proven poor on occasion), English is not my first language and so on. Maybe if someone else was there they can add their 2 cents.

    DC Superheroes 2019 - Rumours & Discussion

    The 89' Batman & Joker figures looks great! A Michelle Pfeiffer Catwoman would be fantastic! As for the CMF's... well... I'm starting to realize I don't know much about the DC universe. None of the figs so far excite me.

    Should LEGO Star Wars take a break?

    They should just keep going as long as the market is there. Sure, after years of buying LEGO SW sets I'm getting tired of repeats too, but imagine children discovering SW and no products on the shelves? Or fresh AFOL's coming out of their dark ages with only the secondary market - that would suck. Plenty of AFOL's who could benefit from taking a break from LEGO SW though, and that is easy - just don't buy the sets.

    DC Superheroes 2019 - Rumours & Discussion

    Except for Sinestro, I haven't even heard about this lot... Still, I love that we are getting figures other than the usual suspects - might be a cool series after all.

    new VIP system

    To me it really hasn't changed that much... GWPs or exclusive sets have always been the only reason to shop at S@H, better discounts can be had elsewhere they still have regular GWPs instead of just a small discount on future orders, points can now be used for extra GWPs which is better in my book (the Iconic VIP set was great) There are a couple of things which I would like though: There should always be at least one GWP small set or polybag available, just keychains, posters & prints doesn't do it for me Get rid of the downloadable colouring sheets I'd be up for an e-mail notification when a new GWP (with actual LEGO bricks or figures) was available Why not offer some of the awesome posters they have on the walls at the LEGO House, those I would actually like to hang on my walls

    Lego Licensed Parts available from Bricks & Pieces

    Lots of complaints, that is what is needed... if you want B&P to go away forever that is. What about cutting LEGO some slack? I love B&P because of the low shipping costs and wide selection of parts. It would be a huge loss if it was closed. Most of the time B&P turns out cheaper than Bricklink for me since I'm not ordering huge quantities of parts.
  8. Looks like the Ghost is back now (at least in the Norwegian shop).

    Yeah, that helmet is... something else. Hopefully it will look better when we get better pictures.

    Will be interesting to see how quickly it sells. For me the new UCS Falcon certainly had a bigger draw, but even then I didn't rush out to buy it (not that I could anyway, with no LEGO stores in Norway S@H is the only option at launch). Given that the MF sold out quickly I can imagine someone will try to flip it for a quick profit - can be somewhat of a gamble though.

    I think the ISD looks good, and the plate style is what I expected. I would have liked it to be a bit bit smoother in areas, and certainly there are mocs out there which looks better (and uses way more parts, so no surprise). Overall I think the designer did a good job, and appreciate them remaking the ISD after all these years. I will most likely get it at some point, but with no place to display it I'm in no rush.

    Lego Licensed Parts available from Bricks & Pieces

    I agree about having the parts is enough to build & enjoy a set, doesn't matter if the parts came packaged in the same box or not. I prefer building with digital instructions even when I have the instructions as it saves desk space and I don't need to weigh the instructions down to keep them on the correct page. I usually get the actual sets though, since I love minifigures and in many licensed sets there are figures unique to that set.
  13. Received my box today, and a few comments after looking at the actual figures: - Really disappointed by the fox figure. This was one of faves from looking at the renders/photos, but it is just too orange. The "white" print on orange looks almost pink - really ruins the figure for me. - The render of the bounty hunter gave it a Blacktron vibe I liked, other photos online made it look very generic. The actual figure looks good, Blacktron vibe intact! - The torso of the knight looks good. - The mummy looks better than expected. There was something with the face I didn't like in the renders/photos, but the actual figure is ok.

    LEGO Star Wars 2019 Set Discussion - READ FIRST POST!!!

    Looking at the pictures of the new sets, I think LEGO Star Wars has just about fizzled out for me. None of the sets really excite me, and It's not because I think the sets are poorly designed or anything, just an overall lack of enthusiasm on my part. There are a few figures I would like but that's about it.

    You can still find it in the menu under Support -> Replacement parts, but I agree it is rather well hidden - unless you know what you are looking for you probably won't find it. I am not at all convinced they turn a profit on B&P. As you say they have to have the missing parts service, and B&P probably just offset the cost of keeping that running. From what I've been told in Billund they have retirees hand picking the orders, so part courtesy to us AFOLs and part community service. How it is now with people reporting they are shipping B&P orders from more locations than Billund I'm not sure.
