    Harry Potter 2021 - Rumors & Discussion

    Ideas sets have a very low budget in general and compared to HP, most sets there have never a new mould that is why there is so shocking when one set gets 5 of them

    LEGO IDEAS - The Medieval Blacksmith

    While most of what you say probably are true, a goat would drive sales of any set I do not say that the Blacksmith needed 5 new moulds, but with a similar budget like that it could easily included a goat or two and 3-4 other animals and still had not used half the budget of this set, not very fair is it

    LEGO IDEAS 21326 - Winnie the Pooh

    I agree it looks good and better than the submission however I think the tree look great with the coral piece in green for the first time 5-6 new molds and several printed parts, too bad the Blacksmith and B-Bay did not get the same budget as this and Sesame street

    LEGO IDEAS - The Medieval Blacksmith

    I agree, the sets themself with the actual build would probably not be any better, but the details would improve a lot with the same budget. B-bay could not bring back the monkey, gold coins etc and had to leave out soldiers and several animals because of the low budget. Likewise the Blacksmith could not bring back the goat, recolor the hare or include hens and other animals and more figs

    60303 is listed under Wildlife Rescue so it is probably that unless we get even more in the subtheme

    Latest news about Lego animal moulds

    Maybe Most likely it is a limited set that is only at sale from Lego and selected stores in every contry, those sets are not in the retail cataluge and therefore leak late or not at all usually

    Future Castle Sets?

    Apparently or the budget for Creator 3in1 is that low I do not follow the theme closely, but my impression is that they never have new moulds, rarely any new printed parts and not many part in new colors

    Future Castle Sets?

    I have not given up hope yet! When they did see how well the B-bay set sold, they may have started to work on a new set to go with it. However that takes time and it will not hit the shelf before next year

    Future Castle Sets?

    From my translation the 1500 parts was just a guess from their side, so take that with a lot of salt Well it is because they where in the ideas set that we get them here, to save money. Creator 3in1 probably have a small budget, there is however a small change for a new civilian fig torso I would say

    Latest news about Lego animal moulds

    Speculate away When it comes to animal moulds there is definitely a pattern that animals showing up in Friends get one in City sometime later. Subthemes like veterinary, horse-farm, dog-show etc on the other hand I unfortunately do not see moving in to City anytime soon

    Harry Potter 2021 - Rumors & Discussion

    She is in 4 sets so far and even if she was somewhat rare at that point Lego of course knew that she would come in the AC later in 2020 and the book at the beginning of this year (etc?) so they put a very common character in the set I would say even if it did not look that way at the time Another example; Cho and Cedric in the books did not make sense at all since they are not in the same year as Harry and Co other than that Lego did not want to waste new characters on the sets. As I have said previously we are in a marathon now, but we will get all the likely and unlikely characters in HP eventually along the way

    Harry Potter 2021 - Rumors & Discussion

    The worst part is that it is no joke, I do not see them "wasting" more than one new character on a set like that

    Future Castle Sets?

    The horse would have been brickbuilt so not much point anyway True, but that was only because they did not have the budget to mould them then. They came in 7189 Mill Village Raid a few years later and a similar set as MMV today would never have had brickbuilt animals. To me they and the duck always looked out of place with the moulded animals in the set. However this is Creator 3in1 and they never come with any moulded animals with print anyway, so was not expecting any

    Lego Licensed Parts available from Bricks & Pieces

    If they do not make money on the horse piece that cost over 5$ a part then they are doing something really wrong! I do not think the price or earning money is the problem, but the limited space and the number of people allowed at work because of the pandemic

    Latest news about Lego animal moulds

    I agree with @williejm However there is a moulded ladybug in "Friends Accessories, Flowers and Insects, 20 in Bag (Multipack)" from a few year back. I usually do not use Friends animals, but the multipacks are fine I think. I do not have it yet and it is without spots so maybe the printed part in the CMF is more useful anyway
