    Latest news about Lego animal moulds

    Yes would be more interesting with farm sets with a higher age than 4+, but beggars can't be choosers and if we only get a 4+ set to keep the animals I will take it I think it sold really well so hopefully if Lego understood it was because of the animals There is some language problem, I think foal is called pony in USA which is really confusing. (not sure what they call a pony then or maybe they do not have them since everything must be big over there ) I actually bought some Lego at a flea-marked this weekend and in one of the bags I noticed a Paradisa foal when I got home

    I hope you are right and that Lego will give us sets like this in the future to keep the farm animals around at least;

    Latest news about Lego animal moulds

    As mention the original foal came in 2 Paradisa sets, the old "falcon" was just a gray parrot so that is completely new in my book and the foal got a updated mould.. I hope you are right, and you make a valid point with that GWP since i think that chimp was last used over 5 years before the GWP. Or was it in BAM after that? However the goat was not saved so do not feel so safe The goat is slightly different on the "inside" so they remade the mould, but made some slight adjustment and apparently that means it was it cost just as much as a new one The cow on the other hand did never go 5 years out of production, my guess the designers included it in 60052: Cargo Train to keep it in production and that set went of marked in 2018 so when 60346: Barn & Farm Animals showed up in 2022 that was only 4 years later

    Yes and the same most likely happed with this set last year, but what is your point? They have signed a NDA and have nothing to gain by leaking info so most of them keep their mouth shut (the rotten eggs are kicked out of the program).

    After a discussion in the LOTR thread @upliftingbricks pointed me to this video: Basically it explains that moulds are normally destroyed after 5 years without being in production. I would explain all the trouble we got with the goat, but has me worried for a lot of the animal mould going out of production as well. If the designers are not vigilant and include a specific animal within 5 years of its last set we could end up with a lot more "goat cases" in the future

    Seen it now and it seems legit if the source from the book is quoted right

    Saw a picture of the Johnny Thunder fig, when do we expect pictures of the sets?

    I assume it is a jaguar to be picky even if he said leopard in the video Is it a recolored tiger or a new mould? Pony and now donkey in minidolls, maybe we get them in minifigform as well down the line then They look great, hopefully we will see some set pictures soon as well.. I fear the price of the adult on PAB are going to be high if we must buy the arms loose, after seeing the orca jaw price

    They for sure have the blueprints so a identical would make more sense unless maybe they wanted to make some small improvements to it Makes little sense, there is already a eagle mould that would fit much better as a eagle (than the new raven), in addition to the giant eagle mould that came with LOTR sets a decade a go (they might have to remake that one if the 5 year rule is true)

    Definitely not, on the inside tour in 2019 I showed 2 well known designers a pictures of the thestral that came in 2018 and they apparently had not seen it and was impressed with the mould I was a Lego designer I would probably go around every week and ask the other themes if they where working on some new animal moulds

    It is actually possible that the bird in HP is a moulded one, comes a new raven in dreamzz now, maybe the buckbeak set have it in more normal colours if we are lucky

    Looks fantastick, hopefully City, CMF or similar will give us one with more useful colors 🥳 Maybe the bird in HP is moulded after all

    Thanks will look at it when I get the time It would make sense why the goat mould was lost, but up until now my understanding was that it was an exception not the rule I know parts that are not in production cost more of the budget of a set/theme to bring back, but if this is the case then they should be a lot more expensive unless remaking a mould cost little (less than they spend on storing them, strange if they just sit on a shelf unless they need a good oil-bath every Sunday )

    Have not seen the video yet, but that sound odd So when a part is gone for more than 5 years they must remake the mould to get it back?! I am sure there are a lot of parts that have a comeback after more than 5 years, e.g. the horse barding that disappeared in 2014 before it came galloping back with LKC in 2022
