    [LEGO IDEAS] BRICK WATCH Lifeguard Headquarters

    Yes please. This is a great design and so much better than the majority of Ideas submissions.

    Lego City 2024

    Looks like the new Zelda set stole all the good foliage pieces that would have been great in the jungle sets! 😂
  3. Oh yes - my bad - I'm clearly getting forgetful!
  4. Any word yet as to what the assumed 3rd series of 2024 will be?
  5. Hi All, In the past year Lego has given us some figures from one of my favourite themes - the Adventurers! With Pippin Read reporting from on board the Orient Express, Prof Kilroy assuming the role as curator of the Natural History Museum and Johnny Thunder exploring the wildlife of Asia it is reassuring to think there is still interest in these characters. I'm not sure if we'll ever see a full return of the theme - perhaps the current action themes like Ninjago and Dreamzzz are more appealing to kids these days? However, I would definitely love to see more and so, just for fun, I'd be interested to know what others would like to see, based on the following... 1) A return of the theme - perhaps the most unrealistic option, but where would you like the team to re-visit or perhaps new horizons yet to be explored? 2) A one-off new set tribute for the theme (something along the lines of what the 10305 Lion Knights Castle set offered for Castle fans) - what would you want to see included? 3) A remake of one of the original sets (similar to the 10320 Eldorado Fortress offering for Pirates fans) - which set would get your vote? 4) A themed collectible minifigures series - which 12 characters would you pick and what would be included?

    Latest news about Lego animal moulds

    It's a valid question @Lion King - personally I think we will eventually see more variation in animals but not for a while as it has taken long enough to get to the stage where a number of new animals are released each year. I'm not that bothered about getting more dogs but I would like to see an alternative seagull without outspread wings. However, there are still so many 'basic' animals that are not available so I would like to see these made first (e.g. a giraffe, wolf, kangaroo, panda, hippo, zebra...). I like the fact we are now seeing young animals too and ideally more variety will follow (even if this means being able to 're-pose' the animal with movable limbs, etc, so they look slightly different, like with the gorillas).

    Another great build - would love to see some of the new crocodiles to add some further danger!

    We don't get many wolves here! My current Top 10 wishlist is as follows: ANTEATER GAZELLE GIRAFFE HIPPOPOTAMUS LEMUR LLAMA SEA LION SWAN TAPIR WOMBAT including babies!

    I live on the outskirts of London and we have so many foxes living here. I had a friend from France visit and he was taking photos as if it was so unusual and my friends and I didn't know why it was so fascinating, as it it completely normal and expected to see foxes running about here. Hopefully foxes can also appear in a Lego City (urban) set too!

    I've already been waiting for several decades! I agree about the actual absence of jungle-ness. Also, I think Johnny Thunder would struggle to find too many red pandas riding around on a quad bike!

    The new animals do look great - I particularly like the olive crocs. Lego slowly catching up with Playmobil! p.s. I might stop moaning about that one day when Lego also has their own okapi, manatee and anteater families!

    Lego City 2024

    Looking at the new jungle sets, Lego has done a great job with the new animals. Those crocs look great in olive green (a shame the junior croc isn't also the same colour). Great to see Johnny Thunder back and showing up the other minifigures in the sets as to how a true explorer should look! A bit frustrating that, rather than putting the focus on these wonderful areas of the planet and providing plenty of foliage to create these habitats etc, Lego has to always include such huge abrasive vehicles. Red pandas will become even more endangered with those quad bikes driving around the forest! I much prefer Playmobil's Wiltopia theme when it comes to showcasing wildlife exploration. However, I won't complain that Lego now seem to be introducing more diverse animals, including younger animals. Safari Park subtheme next year with smaller vehicles please, Lego!

    Lego City 2024

    Me too! Looking forward to seeing if there are any nice surprises (e.g. things not yet revealed). The tram looks a decent set, although I would have preferred a different colour but this could easily be amended.
  14. That’s interesting Slegengr. You are right that this does have a Dino Island vibe, especially with the crane. Perhaps some trees would work well to show this is a jungle outpost. I never particularly like Dino Island as a theme and was relieved when Johnny and the gang went back to ‘real world’ locations as part of the Orient Expedition subtheme. I always wondered where the next adventure would be - Polar Exploration, the Andes, Ancient Greece, Australia?

    Knowing Lego we'll get some sort of purple cyborg giraffe before a proper Minifigure-scale one
