    James Bond 2018

    That's interesting, since those lines are from Goldfinger which would imply the upcoming set is the DB5, but the silhouette on the Creator page says otherwise, and hints towards a DBS/DB10. Having a DB5 in Creator scale would be good as it would allow all the various functions to be included and work.

    James Bond 2018

    Definitely seems to be one of the two, it could even be the DBS from Casino Royale. The DB10 would make the most sense since I guess it’s the most recent iteration, but either one would do. It’d good they’ve gone for the creator scale since if they do move round to doing the DB5 they’ll be ab,e to include all the various functions and gadgets, something a minifigure scale car might not have been able to do. Maybe they might include a minifigure on a stand, like they did with the Tumbler. The DB10 had an ejector seat, so I guess as well that makes it unique to Bond.

    [Ep XVII Freebuild #2] Belly of the Beast

    Excellent build! The photography and use of forced perspective here is brilliant , and I love that shot of the Death Star from the inside of the shuttle - just like in the films.

    Cataloging the LEGO licenses

    Excellent list! James Bond has (sort of) been confirmed to have at least one Aston Martin set. So I guess that could fall under corporate brands too. But no pictures have yet been released.

    James Bond 2018

    I'd love to get the Lotus Espirit from the Spy Who Loved Me, it would be nice to get at least one car from each Bond. The DB10, the Vanquish, etc. I hope they throw in some villains as well.

    Episode XVII: The Battle For Endor

    Big congratulations to the Rebels! It seems very fitting you guys won this being Endor . Huge thanks to MKJoshA and all the Judges for running the contest , just by looking at the full map it's clear it was a big task for everyone involved. I really loved the format of the game, it also encouraged a lot more team communication. It's been fantastic building alongside everyone and definitely can't wait for SoNE 2.0!
  7. You can always be sure when a battle has truly ended, wounded soldiers retreating, remaining ships escaping. The Battle of Endor was reaching it's conclusion, the Rebels had got switch to deactivate the generator and we had still yet to find ours. The Emperor was planning something, that much was obvious, Star Destroyers had moved away from the surface of the planet. Was the Emperor planning to annihilate the planet? Surely not, although that hadn't stopped Tarkin during the Battle of Scariff. But now we had too get up the mountain to see if we could find the switch.

    Harry Potter 2018 - Rumors & Discussion

    Dean Thomas, Crabbe and Goyle are potential characters that spring to mind, or maybe even the original, older version of Flitwick (since he has a different look for the rest of the film after CoS)

    I think the other was Ron winning the House Cup or something like that.

    Harry Potter 2018 - Rumors & Discussion

    I really hope so too, as well go a more spacious interior it would also be a good way to get Buckbeak. I feel like the troll from the dungeons might have been a better inclusion than the Basilisk, but otherwise I think it’s a great set nonetheless.

    The box art for the Great Hall just makes it looks even better! Really string wave we’ve got here so far

    Harry Potter 2018 - Rumors & Discussion

    IIRC Lucius Malloy, Fudge, Dumbledore and Harris were in the scene prior to the Aragog scene, so I guess it wouldn’t have been too much of a stretch to slip one of them in. Overall I like the set, Aragog is a good update and there’s a good amount of Spider pieces in here.
  14. The Imperial Hauler looks interesting. The brown undersecretary almost gives it a steampunk feel. I'm guessing Lego were going for a more rusted effect? but I guess come Friday we'll know. I like the new X Wing Helmets, but I agree they're huge in comparison to previous version , like some sort of optical illusion. Nonetheless the X Wing loos fantastic, definitely the best version we've had so far.

    Harry Potter 2018 - Rumors & Discussion

    Too argue the flips side of the coin here, a lot of people disliked Assault on Hoth for that reason. Ideally a D2C set should be able to look impressive and eye catching on its own, without having to rely on other sets to make it look good.

    Harry Potter 2018 - Rumors & Discussion

    Yeah, that would make sense, I'm kind of hoping if Umbridge is included in a set it's with her office, the last one they made was 2007 and that was a good addition to the castle. I think he was meant to be in the movie but his scenes were cut. But like you said it's only based off Years 1-3 here. A book figure would make sense, but it depends what type of book it was, Visual Dictionaries tend to include varients of the main character i.e. Yule Ball Harry, Gold Medal Luke, Batman etc. But something like a minifgure encyclopedia would make sense.

    I think in the movie, her wand was brown but there was a pink gem in the centre.
  18. An excellent selection of sets here, X wing and the Throne Room are definite pick ups for me. The Sential Shuttle is a nice surprise, I'm glad they're running over a lot of the Tatooine sets. Do we think Lego might be releasing different parts of the Hoth Echo Base that can all be connected together? It would seem kind of odd to only release the medical bay and nothing else.
  19. Thanks for the feedback Bob, definitely want to come back and play the next game! I remember the good ol’ light up figures... until the batteries wore down

    The Sirius Black poster is a good touch on the platform, is there some kind of rotating wall mechanism between the two platforms? Or have they just included both.

    Harry Potter 2018 - Rumors & Discussion

    These sets looks excellent, much like the Great Hall there's so many good things going on here, I like Snape's Office and Classroom and the Dormitory they've included. The Quidditch set looks great too, the scoreboard and snitch are great touches.

    If we do see her in the CMF line, I hope we see her Animagus Cat as well. The same goes for The Marauders. I know we never saw James's Stag, but it would be cool to have them all.

    [Ep. XVII] [Empire] [Week 23] Almost There

    Thanks! I’m really pleased with the way the first shot turned out too, I was going for a more in depth, cinematic look.
  24. According to one of our night patrol groups, the Rebels had got stuck and hadn’t made any movement, so we had the advantage this week, we had searched the area and we finally felt we closer to getting the switch that deactivated the shield. Movement: Can we got down to K22 and then across to K24 to collect the bonus there.

    Harry Potter 2018 - Rumors & Discussion

    That's sounds right, plus since Terrence Higgs is the other seeker, so I'm guessing Lego want kids to recreate the fight for the Golden Snitch. I'm not too bugged about the lack of leg printing, since what I don't want is for it too look unatural like some of the older Clone troopers.
