    Lego Licensed Parts available from Bricks & Pieces

    70838 - QUEEN WATEVRA'S ‘SO-NOT-EVIL' SPACE PALA and other new lego movie 2 sets are now available via B&P. The white batman gown is listed but out of stock. Same as the leg just doesn't have the torso. Hope they become in stock in some weeks. Unfortunately, the clear crystal hair piece is also not listed =(

    Can you tell me what step that issue was in? The engine can handle R40 and up but yes, it does look great on R104+ -Jeffinslaw
  4. As I said, they’ve included exclusive minifigs with the microbuilds for recent Harry Potter and Marvel promotions so I can’t see it being a cost issue. And surely the cost of including ~200 parts (including increased logistics costs) outweighs the cost of printing on a 3-5 piece minifig. In all three cases the microbuilds have printed non-minifig elements too. I suspect it’s more a case of it’s still economically viable to not include a Star Wars minifig because Star Wars sets sell regardless, particularly with the hype of May 4th and co-offers such as 2x VIP points...and a poster.

    Harry Potter 2019 - Rumors and discussion

    I haven't seen the advent calendar. What addition? Looking at the tiny builds that are par for the course with City, Friends and Star Wars calendars, I don't see why we should expect the advent calendar to come with anything that could be added to the Great Hall and/or Clocktower as a room in Hogwarts . . unless you know something I don't? As far as sets go, Expectro Patronum is the real standout. I'll probably get the Horntail set for the minifigures and to MOD the dragon. That crappy tent is gonna be scrapped so hard. Knight Bus is meh, Hagrid's Hut and the Clock Tower are both great, but I won't get either because I don't have any room for them in my layout. Sorry Lego, you tried. Still, happy for all of you who the Clock Tower does work for, and if I could accomodate it I definitely would get it.
  8. I heavily suspect we'll get one soon. Between there being a classic set unrevealed and the dino mech being colored like the Explorer, I really suspect we'll see one this year.

    2019 Friends Sets - Rumors and Discussion

    Pretty impressive wave I'll admit. The restaurant is easily the standout. I like the new shopping cart piece, hopefully we'll see that recolored at some point.

    Nice build. These are 6 wide? I like the b unit. I'd definitely be interested in the LDD file.

    Harry Potter 2019 - Rumors and discussion

    I had hoped that in seeing the final product, that I'd be okay with Hermione's face, but unfortunately I hate it more than I did when it leaked. I get that they had to reuse heads because of the budget, but honestly, it just doesn't work. It makes her look too young, which when paired with Viktor Krum makes it look like he's taking a child to the dance... I'll definitely be swapping the head out. I can live with all of the other head reuses, oddly enough. I love the texture in the builds, it really makes these locations spring to life. All the new arch pieces are used brilliantly. I love pretty much everything about the clocktowers design. The rooms feel better designed this time around too, not as cramped as usual. The tent design is pretty poor though, doesn't look much like a tent. The new pumpkin are awesome! Plus a golden egg! Knight Bus is average! Don't care for it! So close Lego, you almost went an entire wave without including a vehicle. Can't wait to see the Advent Calendar!
  12. So let me ask you guys this: Do you think we’ll ever get the Ford Explorer from Jurassic Park as a set? It’s really the only Jurassic Park set I’d care about. Part of me thinks it’s a huge possibility because of the interest shown in the Lego Ideas. Part of me thinks no because we haven’t gotten it yet. I ask because brickdesigners.com has a pretty good design of the Ford Explorer but I don’t want to put a large amount down on it if we’re going to get an official set someday. What do you guys think?

    LEGO Star Wars 2019 Set Discussion - READ FIRST POST!!!

    I am certain that LEGO has done the surveys and crunched the numbers and determined that these brick-built things are more effective promotions than minifigs by some metric. I just have no idea what that metric is, or where all the people are who prefer a microbuild to an exclusive figure. There has to be some demographic that wants that and doesn't post online about it, or else LEGO wouldn't be marketing to them... printing a new figure is obviously expensive, but surely it isn't so many hundreds of times more so that these microbuild sets are cheaper for LEGO to manufacture.

    Definitely getting the patronus set and multiples of it for the dementor's and stag. Hagrid's Hut looks great too, I love all the details especially that pumpkin patch. The Buckbeak looks fantastic. The clock tower looks great too, figs look great and interior has some great details. The Horntail is going to get some modding to make it look better. Probably going to wait for the bus to go on sale to buy.
  16. On the fence is how I feel too. If other themes can justify including an exclusive minifig with the microbuild (and I’m going to hazard a guess that Diagon Alley and Avengers Tower were hugely successful promotions for TLG) then I don’t see why SW doesn’t get the same love? As it stands I’ll probably wait until I can get the Tantive IV on deep discount once it shows up in other retail channels. If TLG are truly listening to AFOLs as their press release this week states, then I suspect they suffer selective hearing loss when it comes to Star Wars, based on the number of people I see here and on other forums pleading for the return of the May the fourth minifig.

    Harry Potter 2019 - Rumors and discussion

    I'm definitely all for the Patronus set. Hands down a great one; Harry Potter sets always had good small builds. As good as these sets are, there are some WEIRD problems that just don't work. I know everyone's already been commenting on them, but that Horntail's head is an abomination. Weird that the new brick build would be so much worse than a nearly solid, non-posable mold from FOURTEEN years ago. And the normal gold goblet with an unscaled blue flame looks a tad odd for what they were trying to adapt.

    Don't really know why that was necessary. Just wanted to share my thoughts for those interested... But I guess I'm sorry for the long post?

    LEGO 2019 Stranger Things Rumours Discussion

    That’s a great idea, I hadn’t even thought of that! I really hope they don’t hold back on this set because it might be our only chance to get these builds.
  21. The trend for RC and motors for the 2019 sets are only maybe 2 sets I can think of.. Maybe next year the Power Up technics set might spring up..

    LEGO Star Wars 2019 Set Discussion - READ FIRST POST!!!

    I was confused as to how my comment spurred an entire page of discussion. It wasn't exactly a force ghost solo, but you're right about people seeming to take speculation as rumors, and rumors as fact. We make our own force ghost solos. I am so very on the fence about it, as I was hoping to use the profits from selling my old republic frigate and that hasn't sold yet, but that GWP moves me closer to the edge. If the GWP had a minifigure, I'd buy it, but right now I'm still not sure.
  23. Any sets with more then 2000+ pieces would be a bit more challenging!!

    Good places to purchase Lego in the US?

    Lego is sold extensively in my country, but the two sets I mentioned are harder to get / more expensive on the after-market. I'm also hoping to pick up a Lego souvenir from the US, anyway. Thanks for the replies! I've seen that places like Walmart tend to have big sales - where would I get information on those?
  27. I like all those options and I am glad that LEGO sees fit to offer so many different sets so that hopefully there is something for everyone's taste. I imagine no matter what they do though there will always be some who will be critical of their offerings.
