Last year was a bust, they have a long way to go to try and redeem themselves.

I think I started watching at a good time because the reveals started happening. I was hoping for more CMFs, I think they only showed 3 of the next series.

 

I'm excited for the castle and classic space. Nostalgia is a helluva drug.

The $50 price increase on the castle feels 😒 but … probably still going to buy it. On the fence I guess … will probably wait and buy it in-store rather than preorder.

The Forestmen GWP is rumoured to return for the castle.

Interior shots include updated versions of classic shields from the yellow castle, with the exception of no white knight's cross. Lego just gonna sidestep that one. :- Just like they're lion knights now, not "crusaders."

Does anyone have the McDonald's from 1999? This one USED is $120! I have two used (somewhere) and one in the box.

I have one. I think it was only available through S@H? That's a pretty crazy price since the value is all in the stickers and those seemed pretty rough/crooked.

I bought three of them because they were only $10 but were a S@H exclsuive. Even the torso is a sticker. I thought a new one was going for that much.

Send them over to me for authenticity verification.

 

Also, I wish Castle had some sub-$100 sets. I don't care for Castle at $400.

While it’s true that you could buy the Creator 3 in 1, to n64ra’s point, it would be nice if LEGO resurrected Castle or some fantasy variant of it as a theme. There really isn’t a way to easily do army building for any of the knight factions or Forestmen at this point.

I was looking back at the Castle sets from 10 yrs ago or so and man, we were spoiled. That marketplace, the orcs and goblins, the cool armor sets … wish I’d bought it all, but then that’s how I feel about so many past lines … Space Police, etc

Keep an eye on the pick a brick on Lego.com. The black Falcon torsos had been in stock a week or two ago. Right now it’s just legs and helmets. You could build a fig for about $3. Also, there’s a new Falcon torso showing up in the store build a fig stations. (As well as a wizard and queen)

Castle is my favorite theme and I’d love a full line. Since we don’t have access to actual data, I can only guess that the “recent” past lines hadn’t been a hit with kids, or maybe Lego has determined there’s not enough worldwide appeal (cough, china) for a new castle line. My hope is the popularity of the blacksmith and creator castle changes that.

It's been 15 years. :lol:

LEGO designers already came out and said that they don't think classic themes like Space and Castle, and I guess Pirates, sell well enough anymore. So the solution to make everyone happy is to add them to the Creator line a set or two at a time.

An interesting interview about the new spaceship. You can actually build other things with instructions that will be online.

And because someone asked about the baseplate...
 

 

Focusing first on this reimagining of 497 Galaxy Explorer, or 928 Space Cruiser and Moonbase, was consideration given to including the moonbase mentioned in the original European set name?

Mike: Initially, we were considering including the ground structure, which also meant bringing back the old moon baseplate. We know that people love that plate and we certainly do too. There would be complications in doing that, but it is certainly not impossible. Nevertheless, including the crater baseplate ultimately seemed weird, especially as the vehicle had become bigger, relative to the original model. Also, the conflicting grey between the Galaxy Explorer and the baseplate could create issues, so we thought about changing the colour to tan because that complemented the ship, but updating the colour of something so iconic felt wrong.

I don't know what he means about 'conflicting greys'. Was the baseplate going to be in old light grey?

You can also preorder the ship. If you do today and spent $50.01 on a current in stock set you can still get the Forestmen set. Last day to get it is today. (Rumoured to come back with the castle.)

That was me on the baseplate. I guess I'm stupid. Why make the ship bigger than the '79 version if that's going to cause problems with the moon baseplate? I also don't follow what the grey vs grey color issue is. Agree changing to tan wouldn't work.

 

Re: Castle

Very sad that it doesn't sell enough. I'll take Creator 3 in 1s, but I need a $20 set, and a $30, and a $50, etc



#18411 TheBigD  

Posted 22 June 2022 - 05:44 PM

It's not stupid. LEGO could have made a brick built baseplate or the ship smaller. Many things LEGO could do and don't.

I don't think LEGO's reason for no Castle is based on anything besides some lame focus group studies. They now make three classic Castle torsos, some updated ones without the factions and viking torsos. There is no excuse for not having smaller sets. A $30-$50 Creator set that can be a batting ram, boat and a tavern would be easy enough.

I’d like a line of just the base plates … fancy base plates all around … build your own adventure base plates. Kind of like those flat landscape plates that LEGO released through Xtra a few years ago … but you know, actually usable to build things on. Base plates!

Yeah the gray thing doesn't make sense regarding baseplates.

 

Looks like Forestmen set is gone from the site.

 

And last Vidyo non BeatBox is finally sold out. RIP.

People see it sold out on LEGO.com and assume it’s rare or retired. If only that had happened with Optimus Prime … but nooo … pretty sure Optimus is going to transform into a castle in about a month.

Amazon Germany is having a massive sale on sets that were already 40% cheaper there than in the USA. LEGO really likes fucking with North America and Adult Fools of LEGO keep making excuses.

LEGO is bringing back that horrible Santa's Front Lawn set for Christmas in July. I can't read the dates but the total you need is $220! :lol:

Fuck off LEGO. Seriously.
