  1. Emoji Movie

    I personally think dreadful animation is what held the first movie back from being a decent kids movie.
  2. Updating Your Minifigs

    I bet Lego will release them in those colors soon enough. You are absolutely right though in those colors it would be perfect!
  3. Star Trek

    When it comes to Klingon diversity remember the Klingon Empire is as vast as the Federation. Nigel Paige implied the Klingons we see in Discovery are not from Qonos.
  4. LEGO Star Wars 2017 Pictures and Rumors

    There will always be a chance for Rogue One sets in the future from now on. Of course they will probably be released sparingly and far between in the coming years but just like the first two trilogies, they will certainly continue making new one. Especially when anniversaries come up.
  5. Star Trek

    As a TOS purist I'm actally super okay with the new Klingons. Probably for similar reasons as @Capparezza. I'd like to pose my reasoning. Humanity is incredibly diverse with many, many variations of our species across the globe. This is ultimately what Star Trek celebrates the most and always has. Gene Roddenberry advocated humanity's many differences. Humanity is boldly going together in our many shades looking forward to the future and progress. If Starfleet and the Federation are meant to represent what humanity could and should be the Klingons originally were always meant to embody much of what we shouldn't be. Militaristic, feudilistic, fascist, and highly traditional and backwards looking. So if Starfleet is incredibly diverse why would we assume that the Klingons are? What if the Klingons we saw throughout most of TNG, DS9, VOY and Enterprise are just one racial group that happens to be the most populous or most powerful within Klingon society's hierarchy? If Klingons are so warlike and traditional, just like similar cultures on Earth they're probably very xenophobic and discriminatory to other Klingon racial groups. We wouldn't know because as demonstrated on the show the Klingons are very private regarding internal matters. This would explain why the Klingons in the Motion Picture and Undiscovered Country (really any of the Kirk era movies) largely look so different. They're simply different races we don't see often. In the new Discovery trailer it looks like there are different kinds of Klingons present such as those with the crystal skull heads and others with more human like heads. The main Klingon we keep seeing appears to get beaten up as a child in the trailer so I think we're going to be shown a lot of the inner power plays and turmoil from a Klingon perspective which I'm really excited for.
  6. What was the last movie you watched?

    Dunkirk - phenomenal movie that I can't recommend enough.
  7. Post your general LEGO Star Wars questions here

    Has anyone ever compiled a list of all the major characters and important minor characters we don't have minifigures of?
  8. What Video Game(s) are you playing?

    With all this talk of Dishonored 2, and me not owning anything that can run it, i've decided to replay the original. Definitely a favorite!
  9. I am curious how the inevitable 2018 Han Solo lego sets will be affected by all the hullabaloo with the changing of directors. Presumably not much but you can never quite tell with these things.
  10. LEGO Star Wars 2017 Pictures and Rumors

    Kylo has proper robes now and last movie had a hood so chances are its simply a hooded Kylo. No need for TLG to make a new mold.
  11. Woohoo Female Doctor! I'm excited! I am surprised and disgusted though at the level of misogyny leveled at Jodie and the BBC by some of these fans. Its one thing to not like the pick of that particular actress but most of the comments i've read are strictly due to her gender and sex.
  12. Game of Thrones Discussion

    Its that magical time of year again!
  13. Star Wars

    ACKBAR'S BACK BABY! Yeah i'm really hyped. Not thrilled by the lack of OT aliens other then our beloved Mon Calamari though. Where the heck are the Bith and Ithorians? Other then that though it looks super. I'm glad the First Order Officer corps appears to employ more grey and dark blue uniforms this go around, wasnt overly keen on all of them being in black always.
  14. LEGO Star Wars 2017 Pictures and Rumors

    Well yes I'm very much aware of that I'm speaking more as to why does he not have a new one?
  15. LEGO Star Wars 2017 Pictures and Rumors

    I'm curious as to why Kylo doesnt have a helmet? Also evil BB8 is apart of his Tie? Does that mean the droid is Kylo's personal droid? I'm curious as to what the Gorilla Walker looks like on screen cause right now the Lego set looks like someone's semi decent MOC of an AT-AT. The kind that is impressive that someone built but a little mugly to ever buy. Like the head and front legs are just so over designed and busy looking.
