    New LEGO Speed Champions 2022 Rumors, Speculation

    What else is driving me crazy are lifestyle photos, DB5 has not alligned properly grill stickers and some pieces are not put together perfectly on both cars. Its really shame that they are lowering effort.

    I bet there will be brickbuild solution by cobi...Probably any other company will do it this way. I awaited for figures of Bond and Dom... But looking at these low key effort cars I probably give it pass... Price increase it even make worse.

    This dont feel like regular speed champions sets, but more like knockoffs. It feels like straight out Cobi set especially DB5. I was very tempted to buy these two, but maybe I buy another speed champions from this year instead of these. But stickers as grill of DB5? Why we need to suffer?

    Lego prices increase in half of 2022 is just bad scalping of buyers. Ok, how interesting it will be when they charge every set with one or two euro increase. Logical or boring isnt it... No they are charging sets, that will sell with various price increase, probably bigger seller, bigger increase. They are not even hiding it and inflation is really high here, so good luck with our local nonsense prices....

    I think lego shot itself with strict no gun policy in non licensed sets and no religion themed sets... Osprey fiasco made me twist my eyes... There are so many beautiful cathedrals and churches, that can be pinnacle of architecture series. That theme is 18+ so I dont see problem in this. I dont want from them Noe Arch set and wedding in church, like playmobil have...

    Unpopular Opinions about LEGO

    I think lego sponsored reviews are just shilling, I rarely see reviews that pinpoint major problems like clutch problems, colour inconsistencies or pricing. Also they dont make sense, it seems like they give sets to any media and these reviews feels like copy/paste...

    Definitely buying Charger and DB5, this is something I have waited for . Im not fan of that Craig figure, because it feels old and tired. But first bond figure its something.
  8. Seriously I dont see logic in these ultra duper ucs sets anymore... Very basics technic functions limited by real car, crude interior as always... Fancy box, first time it has charm fourth time I dont know? These cars will be better under creator labels, because this is about look not functions.

    Ninjago compared to Monkie kid, looks like poor man's job. When I first saw these sets, I was baffled how elaborate these sets can be... And I had same view, Asia buyers are probably very rich... Not my cup of tee, but some mechs looks awesome... I can say these poor market/rich market doesnt make sense either. We are post communist country, and we are still past western countries... But we have prices on par with Denmark... As I said worse prices than Germany... But Poland, have best prices probably from any European country. These sets looks like they are on permanent sale... Lego just wants maximize profits, probably from strong markets. I dont know better explanations. Its funny thinking in times of Amazon.

    Maybe not unpopular opinion, but lego local pricing is weird as it can be... It killed my joy for lego for second time. I live in Czech republic, but we have some of worst prices among neighborhood countries. For example sets, that cost 139 euro in Germany, cost here 3890 CZK which is roughly 157 euro. They are totally out ouf touch, Germans with better income have cheaper sets than here... Im furious, when Im checking prices. Just give us German prices for f sake. I can easily go to Poland, which is cheaper of all. But Im not interested in wasting my time for another bricks. We have here joke, that lego bricks are made of gold. Thats why lego is so pricier here.
  11. Seriously lego is total out of mind, local price for pyramid here is 3890 CZK which is 157 euro. It worse price than in Germany, that is our neighborhood country... Im speechless and angry, we had here joke that lego bricks are made of gold... Im quitting this hobby again, for these bulls*it prices also again...
  12. Its not, I count 2x pyramid set as only option. Both falls into architecture centerpiece of room. I count 2x pyramid set with discount here to have full pyramid.
  13. Well I count whole pyramid, thats only solution for me. I dont want cut pyramid. I can buy these set here for 70 euro from regular online stores. This pyramid, well if it goes around 120 euro here it will be miracle. Again 210+15 euro instructions vs 240 euro, also better price for one piece. Im talking of these sets as potential architecture centerpieces of room.
  14. Sets looks very great, but that price is totally out of touch thanks to adults gimmick. For lower price, I can buy 3x Creator castle set and build for example this moc https://rebrickable.com/mocs/MOC-101775/Madewithbrix/black-falcon-knights-castle-31120-medieval-castle-alternate-build/#details .
  15. I remembered, about six months ago I stumbled about helicopters webpage on lego site. Way back any confirmed Avatar rumours, they had photo of MOC of attack chooper for avatar and its still there. https://www.lego.com/cs-cz/categories/vehicles/helicopters-and-planes Is this just coicidence, or its placed here by purpose?
