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

The DC CMF action pose piece is being reused in this series too. New hat + hair combo, pinata, viking helmet and llama hat pieces.

The Mario line is at least attempting to be innovative rather than just a load of half-assed minifigure sets. He has some sort of scanner that detects where he is placed.

Pirate torso out of the upcoming Pirate Bay set? Also forgot to post this but the blue guy and ox are supposedly from the upcoming Monkey Kid theme, which seems to have been pushed back due to the coronavirus.

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?
