  1. I only want the minifigs but I hate buying them loose. :( Will we ever have a movie minifig that is not sold with a ginormous set that costs a fortune? Begins Batman, TDK Joker, SS Harley Quinn and now these 3... that's starting to get old. Even the Arkham Knight Batman was sold in an overpriced set.

    TLG acquires Bricklink

    Like many, I don't really know how to feel about it. BL wasn't broken and worked really well from my pov, so any change is a potential source of issues. I can't predict the future though and maybe TLG will make it even better somehow. I almost exclusively use BL to buy retired sets so my biggest worry at the moment is whether or not this purchase will affect how those are priced and sold in the future.
  3. Is there a plan to make the new sets appeal more to younger children? The 2020 City sets look very childish as well, almost like they're all Juniors/4+. I wonder what caused it, is it a decision made by the higher-ups because they wanna try something new and possibly noticed preteens might prefer video games to actual toys... or is it due to a new team of designers or something? I just hope that's not the start of a new trend and that other themes won't be affected by it. Of course we're obviously not the target demographic and are mostly just along for the ride but it would be a shame if your average LEGO set were to become more simplified.

    Harry Potter 2019 - Rumors & discussion

    Yeah that's the problem with free mobile games, none have good gameplay and they all rely on microtransactions. This one is no exception but it's at least playable without spending money unlike something like Gardenscapes. I don't have high hopes at all but I'm thinking if that ever happens, a polybag is the way to go. The only other option I can think of would be one of those exclusive minifigs that accompany guide books. They could also add one in the CMF line or in a Bricktober pack but I can see why they would rather use those spots for pretty much any movie character instead.

    Harry Potter 2019 - Rumors & discussion

    I don't think we'll ever see a set from that game but yeah a polybag could be cool. We've seen weirder things in the past and it's kind of like the Star Wars EU in a way. Also considering FB3 won't come out for another 2 years and we haven't heard much about that open world game since last year, it's one of the only active HP material at the moment. Ben could indeed easily be made, it's too bad he's probably everyone's least favourite character lol. I could see them go for Penny or Merula. The Hufflepuff or Slytherin robes alone would be a major draw for collectors and army-builders, even if they don't know the characters or care about them. TLG will probably avoid making Badeea though as they tend to stay away from religious symbols. Charlie would be a good choice too and he has an interesting outfit but we would still be missing 2 Weasleys: Bill and Percy, although those two could still appear in future sets.

    How popular was the doctor who TARDIS set?

    Yeah there's definitely more than that, like the car brands used for Speed Champions, the Flintstones or, like you said, Minecraft. Wonder what the situation for Pirates of the Caribbean or Scooby-Doo is though.

    DC Super Heroes Wishlists

    I would love to get a GCPD set. I was thinking of something similar in style to the Brick Bank (10251). It could include a simple patrol car and famous members of the GCPD like Bullock or Renee Montoya alongside Gordon and a couple of regular officers. When it comes to minifigs, I'd love to see: - Raven (the regular one), she's way overdue - Deathstroke (more modern outfit, maybe with an actual helmet) - Mad Hatter - Hush - Ventriloquist - Batman (Beyond) - Owlman - Catwoman (TDKR)

    REVIEW: 75965 The Rise of Voldemort

    Wait, there's a baby Voldemort in this set? That's awesome. I couldn't find this set at my local store when I last went there unfortunately and the pics I saw online didn't seem to include one. Man, they're really doing a good job with the new HP sets. As for the rest of the set, it's pretty perfect for that scene. A great update on the old GoF set with an afforable price that focuses on the important part of the scene. My only little complaints would be about the death eater... it would have been nice to get a second one (although I get 5 minifigs for a set this small is too much). Also I'm still not fully convinced by his hat. Not sure if that's because they didn't want the minifig to look too much like a KKK member but it's not completely movie-accurate as a result. I'm even wondering if the old medieval princess hat piece wouldn't look better on them...

    Harry Potter 2019 - Rumors & discussion

    So realistically what are the chances of TLG making at least 1 character from the Hogwarts Mystery mobile game? It seems to be somewhat popular even if it likely appeals to a much smaller market. I reckon they must be pretty low but you never know, they could always make a popular character in a polybag or something...
  10. Eh, it starts out strongly but ends pretty poorly and in a rush. It has some great moments but looking back at that last couple of seasons, a lot of people would probably advise you to not even bother. Still the whole undead-looking knight + ice combo made me think of that.
  11. Oh yeah, the emblem on the shield definitely is a nod to that but back in the day, those knights were typically regular humans (and a witch) with cool helmets. This possessed/reanimated knight in rusty armor wielding an ice sword really screams GOT to me.
  12. It's nice to see more original minifigs after all this time. I still liked the licensed CMF's, don't get me wrong, but some variety is always welcome. I can't wait to get my hands on the mummy, the monkey king, the adventurer and especially the black knight (clearly inspired by GOT but I'm thinking that armour might be perfect for a vampire warlord) and the bounty hunter. That last one made me realize that helmet could be a decent base for an Arkham Knight minifig too.

    [LDD] Jurassic World Vehicles MOCs

    I did not make the Pinzgauer, this was Imanol's creation. All the vehicles I made are in the file I posted in the original message. :( I'm currently remaking the G-wagen though so maybe I'll post an update if I'm happy with the end result.

    Harry Potter 2020 - Rumors, Wishlists and Discussion

    Oh, well that's a little unfair if the fictional and historical characters are allowed to get drunk but the City minifigs aren't. Yeah I was thinking about that too, the 3 Broomsticks Inn and their butterbeers are pretty tame. Although I remember Slughorn somehow got a bit tipsy in the 6th movie... but maybe he was drinking something stronger.

    REVIEW: 76112 App-Controlled Batmobile

    That's definitely a good price. I'm sure it probably looks better in person, many sets do. It's on my wishlist, just not a high priority atm.
