Those minifigs are cool as hell, but I don't really like the mech design.

AFOLs used to always be coming up to me with whatever great pet theme idea they had, and I always had to tell them the same thing: no AFOL has ever told me a 'genius idea' that we didn't already have concepted out and ready for development.

...Galaxy Squad-style Modular Space-Western?

I'm prohibited from commenting on any specific theme idea. But I'll tell you what I told everyone else: no AFOL has ever told me an idea that I haven't seen already concepted out and ready for development, and that's still true after reading your idea.

And keep in mind that I haven't seen the concept archives in years. So this is even not counting whatever new stuff they've come up since then.


What about Raccoons versus Venus Fly Traps?

What about a Lego theme based off of the tale of Genji?

This sounds like some kind of weird version of rule 34.


But who really cares anyway? Remember, it was already decided in the beginning that Space and Castle would be the best themes. They dominate the other themes with their un-matched coolness. All others are mere ants compared to the god-like Deadly Space Men from the future and the old Knights of the past.

Again, I still have not yet heard an idea that we didn't have concepted out. I'll note that K'nex ended up being the ones to get the Mario license though.

I dunno. They have some charm to them, though the fact that the parts are overly specialized kinda bothers me.

Looks like the old arctic theme is getting a new release, which is awesome. Arctic and rock raiders are the two themes that I wish I had sets from (though thanks to bricklink, I'll be getting a chrome crusher shortly), and while the power miners were a little disappointing, I have high hopes for the new arctic sets.

Has anyone else seen this minifig? Should be out in stores soon if not now.

Seriously. I want.

They made a Taskmaster minifig? That's extremely awesome, but I'm surprised since he's sort of obscure. I guess they did make a Deadpool one, so...

They've both been played up in the recent "Ultimate Spider-man" Cartoon.

I wonder if the ORANGE TRANSPARENT CHAINSAW will be making a return.

I would agree,but surely, that will drive down the value of the ORANGE TRANSPARENT CHAINSAW. Basic Economics.

Tons of NY toyfar coverage here: http://news.toyark.com/category/lego-toy-news

Personally, this thing is my new favorite: http://news.toyark.com/wp-content/uploa ... nts015.jpg

It's an official Warhead minifig AND a blade runner car, how cool is that?

It would appear there is a new dome piece on the top of that spider-thing. I have been eagerly awaiting the return of such a piece after the banishment of those cool insect eye parts.
