Leaks/Rumours/Upcoming themes Legoman 03/11/2020 (Wed) 20:35:06 No.320
Post the latest Lego leaks, rumours, or upcoming themes here. Lego's just announced a Mario line and this is the rumored set line up. 71361 is a CMF wave according to the rumors, which should prove interesting. CMF Series 20 was revealed at the NY Toy Fair. The Mandalorian is getting 2 brickheadz and the long-awaited Razor Crest

New Centuar piece (finally!) from Harry Potter Leaks for the new Ninjago Wave look cool. Hope that anon wasn't lying about a redesigned Vladek's helmet in this wave...
>>326 Where's Gay Bar anon, he's going to LOVE the pirate torso. Also, big pity about the delay. >>344 Those robes scream 'warlock' and I love it.
>>348 Don't give gaynon anymore ideas his bar is crowded enough as it is. Hopefully those robes somehow make it to the BAM bins (or even better a recolour) because it would definitely make some cool looking warlocks.
The creator of the minifig died last month.
>>349 Minifigs don't need social distancing so Gaynon can do whatever he pleases.
>>354 On the upside, he doesn't have to witness this virus outbreak bullshit. So far it just inspired me to make this abomination along with a new disease for BrikWars which is just Corona but lore-fitting.

>>355 I've heard that it's evolved into a plastic form... >>354 He seemed like such a cool guy, it's a genuine shame. According to one Lego designer they only got to meet him once but as they were walking through a display of some kind he stopped to take apart a Classic Space set and rebuild it because it was built wrong, even though this was something like 20 years after the set came out.
>>366 You know when you just get the feeling scalpers are going to be all over a set? This set is giving off this vibe
>>366 Star Wars is LEGO's clingy third wheel friend. It'd be so much nicer to play with LEGO if fucking Star Wars didn't pop up everywhere with its drooling meme-spouting fanbase following suit.
>>368 And by producing this set Lego has acknowledged them, thereby giving them this false sense of "we ARE the Lego fanbase". Licensed IPs were a mistake.
>>369 >Licensed IPs were a mistake. I agree with you while making exceptions for silly IPs that give us crazy and unique bricks to work with. But Star Wars is just generic spaceship bullshit with a license paint job. Maybe a few interesting parts but those'd be diamonds in a pile of shit, and better worth ordering seperately from any brick vending site.

>>370 >making exceptions for silly IPs that give us crazy and unique bricks to work with. Unfortunately they're very rare. And when we do get a wacky/silly theme with decent, colourful parts it's usually got shitty figures crammed in (Angry Birds, Trolls, etc). Star Wars was a can of worms that shouldn't have been opened because we're now in the position where licensed IPs are expected by many people. Gone are the days when people would try to re-create an IP using what was available in Lego as now they can just post it on Ideas and try get the IP the lazy way.
>>372 >Gone are the days when people would try to re-create an IP using what was available in Lego as now they can just post it on Ideas and try get the IP the lazy way. Okay, this part is especially true and sort of sucky. As for the sucky custom minifigs, I just see them as expendable. The Trolls mermaid is kind of fun, especially because she has a pretty mermaid tail that you can fit on other minifigs.
Saying licensed IPs were a mistake is like saying flesh was a mistake.
>>377 Flesh tone is perhaps the worst thing Lego has done. If every figure was yellow there would be a far greater inter-changability of parts and pieces. I'd be far more accepting of licensed themes if the figures were yellow because the minifigure pieces could still be used, but instead you're left with pieces that can only ever be used with a specific flesh tone. Either that or you have to erase some of the printing which is a pain sometimes.
>>377 >>378 >Complaining about Peaches when we've had blue/red/black minifig heads and parts for ages thanks to ancient Space-themed sets. Now settle down here, children. Let grandpa tell you about a time before every space-themed set was fucking Star Wars shit.
>>379 Hey, that second one is gypsy moth from the first lego racers games. Man seeing it gave me some nostalgia. Thanks anon
>>380 Glad I could bring back some memories. I sorted out all the LEGO heads I had, and I completely forgot about the "Cowboys vs. Indians" theme they had going for a while too.

>>379 Difference is they are for non-humans so the coloured heads make sense. Plus the robot heads could always be used as masks or something. Flesh heads just don't mix when you already have yellows as established normal humans. >>381 Those Indians with the noses are ugly as hell. What was Lego thinking?
>>383 >Obligatory Jew nose comment Oy vey. But yeah, LEGO wasn't really subtle back then. Remember the islanders from the explorer sets? With the spears, hair that could fit horn decorations, bodies that definitely screamed "native primitive islander" and the big red masks? As for the flesh skins, I find it hilarious how BrikWars solved it: With pure utter racism. >Flesh skinned minifigs are referred to as "Peaches" and are a minority race treated like shit in the past >Their skin colour is a mutation caused by playing basketball (I believe that was because the very first flesh skinned minifigs were based on famous basketball players but not sure.)
I really dislike Mario and video games. Hopefully this abomination doesn't intrigue scalpers into looking at our hobby because of this

Obligatory Monkie Kid mention. I'm definitely getting Pigsy's Food Truck, solely because it's a food truck and it'll look great right next to the rest of my food truck parking lot.
>>458 Not going to buy any of MK set, but if I would it would probably be the truck. Earlier, I was considering the HQ cargo ship, but then I found out that it just opens up as a whole and the boxes are not separate from the ship.
>>428 >Implying they aren't already doing it because of any other licenced themes.
>>428 there have been some Mario K'nex toylines with actual minifigs (that got super scalped fast) >>458 >Monkey Kid so, LEGO is also going for the CCP money now?
>>514 >so, LEGO is also going for the CCP money now? They've been courting them with more Chinese influences in Ninjago, but with China staring to open up to the West, Lego is trying to really capitalise on their brand image (high quality, educational toy) by pushing a specifically tailored theme towards rich Chinese parents to drive home the perception of their brand. From a business perspective it makes sense. Personally the sets are alright but they don't interest me greatly, especially with the higher prices and the quite forgettable looking villains. How will the theme continue after the first wave? I assume from the wave lineup that it covers the entire first season of the show, but where next?
Series 21 CMFs. Looks like they're cutting them back to only 12 minifigures a series.

Series 21 CMFs. Looks like they're cutting them back to only 12 minifigures a series.
Wait, aren't they releasing the minifigs in boxes now? Is that bag a scrapped idea or a mock-up?
>>792 The only reference to them now being in boxes instead of bags is from 4chan and a bad render to back up such wild claims. I'm more than certain this was made up, and it wouldn't be the first time fake leaks have cropped up there.
Open file (11.88 MB 1913x2400 ClipboardImage.png)
Someone call /co/! Upcoming Looney Toons CMFs. Willing to bet these will be the new Disney CMFs, which seemed to flop massively. There's some stores that still have the Disney ones in stock despite having them at like 50% off for years now.
>>789 >#5 Finally. Articulated child legs.
>>1066 Anon, where have you been? These have existed since 2018 with the first Harry Potter CMFs.
>>1067 It's just the first time I've seen short poseable legs. Every set I get with a kid or an elf or something has those unbendable legs. Even the second minifig on that same image has them.
>>1048 Yeaaah I'm not seeing the appeal in these, feels like they're trying to cash in on Space Jam 2. Unless you're a hardcore Looney Tunes fan (doubt there's that many) this one feels like a hard pass, the minifig parts would require a lot of imagination and lack of fucks given to MOC with.
>>1074 I feel like your post pretty much describes all of the recent licensed Lego sets. Is there really that much of a demand for Winnie the Pooh or Sesame Street? The same as the Disney CMFs clogged shelves massively and series 2 was badly received. Even the local Lego store struggled to shift them.
>>1076 >Is there really that much of a demand for Winnie the Pooh or Sesame Street? The keyword here is 'nostalgia'. These IDEAS sets are references to childhood franchises for people who are already balls-deep into AFOL territory and don't mind spending money on display pieces. My main concern is...Who the hell is that eager for Looney Tunes besides people that get off on Lola Bunny or want Speedy for the printed cheese pieces (rumors that the fact he's being removed from the cartoon series for being a 'problematic stereotype' are also a reason)
>>1077 >Who the hell is that eager for Looney Tunes Surely it is as you said, nostalgia? Rather than put out a Looney Tunes set it seems they've opted to go the CMF route instead. Any AFOL buying these is probably buying these to complete the series and they'll end up display pieces too. As for eagerness, take a look at Ideas. Some people are so desperate to see [tv show/movie/cartoon/comic book] as a Lego set rather than trying to create their own version. It's emblematic of the modern AFOL and how they've just became consumers rather than creators, especially moreso of those that have grown up only ever knowing Lego producing licensed themes. I know many in the Lego community shit themselves in rage when you even remotely defend bootlego, but I think it serves a much needed purpose and Lego should stop trying to cut them out. As far as I see it bootlego serves a purpose in providing people with licensed stuff (Lego just doesn't have the designers, the lawyers, or the money to even compete with the amount of licenses and IPs bootlego companies have yes they infringe copyright, but who really gives a fuck?) that would be too niche or just unacceptable for Lego's standards. Bringing it back to the Lonney Tunes minifigures, these could've easily been left for a bootlego company to make and Lego could've focussed on fixing their shit, because god knows why they are still sticking with this AR crap.

I think it's absolutely solid; hopefully the pricing isn't completely fucked.
>>1081 >Castle >Windmill/village >Lighthouse Well, they've got my interest. But I'm simping for a ninja this summer, no regrets.
>>1048 Sometimes I wonder how much of LEGO's attention is solely on unique minifigs. This shit is like that pokémon card scalping outrage that happened some weeks ago waiting to happen again.

So do you think these were too far in production to cancel or Lego is completely tone deaf heh to how badly Vidiyo is doing?

>>1085 >>1086 How badly IS Vidiyo doing, like are there actual stats instead of rumors and a couple of entitled AFOLs cutting boxes? Do I honestly need to check the app to see how active things are? And take a good look. Two genres/factions are getting normal beatboxes (Monster Metal & Fantasy Folk). I see five of the six formerly released beatbox genres are getting stages, is there a Tropicon one that isn't leaked yet? It's not too farfetched to predict a third wave with Discowboy & Samurap beatboxes at the very least.
>>1087 As far as I know there's no stats or anything, but bear in mind that even Brickset published an article about Vidiyo possibly flopping. https://brickset.com/article/58772/has-vidiyo-flopped-already Though I think its not too hard to see why a ridiculously overpriced, badly marketed theme is flopping already. Amazon discounted them from day one and stores have been discounting them recently, and it doesn't help sales that rumours of box cutting are going round. The app suppsodely suffers like every other Lego app - barely works, heavy on space and memory, only works on the latest phones, and the AR gimmick just doesn't integrate nicely, which is yet another nail in Vidiyo's coffin. I'm not holding my breath for a wave 3.
>>1088 Counterpoint: The way they had wave 2 ready and the amount of content released in it, I think they split up their originally prepared product into three pre-made waves to extend it as much as possible. There's apparently going to be an in-game store outfit update this Saturday and people still seem to be making videos too, so the app's not as dead as everyone proclaims.
>>1089 So each wave is like a DLC of sorts? I guess we'll see this Saturday if the app is as dead as everyone says it is.
>>1090 >DLC Sort of, except it's more testing the waters and extending the product's life for as long as possible by not releasing one huge wave of sets at once. (Imagine being a kid and trying to collect it all, ouch.) If they can make it until after the COVID situation is over, it'll be a blessing for them.
