I never saw any exclusive set, even if there is TRU in my country... Even for things like SW's Black series figure, they keep the unsold Finn's and constable Zuvio's one and they'll not take newer until everyting is gone.

At one point you could get the complete figure minus hair through Bricks & Pieces. Most of the parts are out of stock now, but you might be able to order them if you call it in.

Sir Von Lego confirmed on EB that Harry Potter will be an whole wave.

What I heard was that the Nexo sets are actually in the European catalog, and set for a January '18 release date. Then there's the fact that given LEGO's established release scheme that a delayed American release would mean a whole year between wave releases.
Could they be coming to America? Sure, but I'm preparing myself for a Nexo-free 2018.

Just checked on BL, she's in there, could live without her set.

She'll be on my "Really want it" list with Salacious Crumb and Luna Lovegood. That kind of fig that i want but i never thought about them when i'm taking a BL order.
>>
>>6512834
Funfact: the reason the black knight mech sucks compared to the king's mech is because execs meddled with the release schedule.
The BKM was designed first by Mark Stafford based on the original concept art and Junya Suzuki then modified it into the King's Mech which had much better articulation and was supposed to come out in the summer wave.
Stafford even apologized for it on Brickset.

It's not like that's actually a bad thing considering how cluttered the Lego shelves are these days, for the longest time we had Nexo Summer '16 sets deeply clearance to make room for Winter '17.

The american catalog which was leaked only covers the first half of the year so NK and Elves might still be released in USA in july or later.

This being said, since Ultra Agents has a final wave which was USA exclusive, it's not unlikely the NK and Elves sets are indeed euro only, especially since both themes will likely end this year.

>>6512848
Suzuki might be one of the best designers Lego has now, he's behind the battlesuits too. There was a lot of various prototypes at his panel on Japan Brickshow earlier this year.

Which I fully grant is possible, but like I said, a year between waves seems excessive and out of character.

They really should have turned that recolored King's Mech into a real set.
>>
>>6512866
There were some themes with waves separated by a whole year instead of 4-6 months, but it's been a while since the last time they did it - Agents and Mars Mission were the last case, and the latter only because in some european countries one small wave was skipped.

I somewhat doubt this, if only because a Euro release still requires an English Language version of tie-in material to be produced, so it's not like those can't also be sold in North America.

>>
>>6512928
There was a horse in a 10$ from the lego movie, I think less horses is the price we pay for a lot of new animal molds in city and cmf. Also, friends horses might be at fault too.
>>
>>6512928
i see a few from time to time on city sets when i browse, and even the castle sets that i see have maybe 1-2 at most. 2bh i haven't browsed online in awhile, so most of what i've seen has just been in walmart or whatever. i picked up quite a few of mine up on ebay some years back, but them shits have really gone up in price.

The new System horse mold is perpetually rearing, which I don't like as much as classic four-hooves-on-the-baseplate horsies even if it is more dynamic of a pose.

100% this. I'm not a fan of this or the trend creating big molded pieces that are designed for a specific set. I wish they'd do a limited re-release of some of the classic sets like they did in the early 2000s. I got 6074, 6067, and pic related for like $110 combined.

But I want classic horses. Fuck off with this sci-fi fantasy bullshit

>the trend creating big molded pieces that are designed for a specific set

This is by no means a new trend, do you remember Fabuland?
>>
>>6512959
The strict separation of sci-fi, horror and fantasy is a relatively recent, synthetic concept :^)
>>
>>6512959
Check ebay. Been browsing a little today and one guy has a lot of 9 for buy it now $27, but no saddles included (reeeee). Otherwise, a lot of people seem to be charging around $4+ per horse. Shit sucks.
>>
>>6512813
how do you find nexo content in lego worlds? on what kind of terrain/biome?
>>
>>6512960
Yes, but for my purposes I don't really consider duplo and the little kid shit to be LEGO. I'm thinking about sets like pic related. Nowadays it seems like the majority of vehicle sets have a giant nose/windshield piece that used to require 5+ pieces.
>>
>>6512969
>Nowadays
Since 90s.
>>
>>6512969
The whole boat is a single piece, 1987.

There were sets with pieces that only serve one purpose for basically as long as minifigs, with time we forget the shittier old toys and only remember the good ones, often additionally idealizing them through nostalgia. There are problems with modern Lego, like heavy reliance of shit licenses which usually only lead to crap sets (TLBM was the only capeshit line with decent sets for example, imo), but this is not something new, and also hardly a problem, kids are meant to start with the simpliest stuff and gradually move to more complex builds - planes and ships with a few huge pieces like that are a middle ground, basically.

Or bricklink for much less
Never buy lego on ebay unless it's less than bricklink. It's just filled with scampers preying on the uninformed
>>
>>6512969
Creator sets almost never use large molded pieces, city sets are just plain shittier and are meant to be more like action figures and toy vehicles than building sets
Also jack stone and around 2000 lego was much much worse. The new sets are vast improvements across the board in building techniques and design

Because they weren't tied to any existing designs and could just go wild.
>>
>>6512976
meh, this seemed different to me. stuff like pic related that i got as a kid never bugged me. it made sense because the solid hull made it float. i'm probably just blinded by nostalgia and my fondness for the old stuff. i 100% agree about the license issue though. seems like all i ever see in stores is star wars, capeshit, creator, and rehashes of the same city shit.

Don't get me wrong, I know City is and will always be a staple. But I miss the old days of castle, pirate/armada/islanders, adventurers, and western. Even the stuff I didn't buy very often like exploriens and aquanauts just seemed so much cooler than what's introduced today. Meh. Nostalgia is a bitch.

Anyway, enough of my incessant bitching about current set quality.

I'm >thisguy >>6512899 from the previous thread. I cannibalized a few parts from other customs last night and managed to get enough black pieces to cobble together another tower. Also, converted an old castle series boat into a dragon catapult.

Additional structures are going to be a bitch at this point. I have a fair amount of city doors/windows and colored pieces, but I'm pretty fucked on black and gray bricks.

Most of them look pretty good, especially the ponytail that usually comes in dark red and the standard blonde hairpiece.

Elves hair looks good too but the ears make the amount of heads that you can use with them without this detail looking weird much smaller.

Almost 100% compatible, but the longer ones restrict what kind of stuff you can have attached to the torso.

So... I've finally managed to finish this modular I've been working on. Kind of. I never had an official modular before and made it from parts I had on hands, so it's far from perfect and there is planty of fillers/placehoders and things to be improved.

What really needs to be finised mostly about interior, as it's pretty empty, especially second floor. The kitchen turned out well, I think, just needs to be filled with some kitchenware. But I haven't touched it for like a month. Anon with his stackable mini-skyscraper thing, and the one with his expanion of ninjago city inspired me to post this, as well as gave some nice ideas.

Went on a building spree this weekend and knocked out a bunch of sets I'd been sitting on. Love the deep-sea theme sets! I want to complete it, eventually.

Still gotta get around to the Town Square set (60097) and I also picked up Rex's AT-TE for 60 bucks the other day at Target, which I'll probably tackle first as I'm really eager to add it to the Star Wars shelf. Love Clone Wars vehicles, but trying to limit myself to Imperial era sets, so the AT-TE was a perfect compromise, haha.

Also great piano and computer station thing.
>>
>>6512826
>>6512835
I know Andrew (https://www.flickr.com/photos/[email protected]/) sells some of his instructions.

The thing about selling whole kits is that you have to become a store, and spend time buying parts and assembling kits. But instructions is a purely digital business, so your costs don't linearly scale with your sales.

Also, I would question the assumption that by selling kits with pieces you would make more money. Instructions are FAR cheaper, and can even be an impulse buy, whereas if someone is spending 50+ dollars on a full kit, they're going to think about the purchase.

Fuck that is sick news, i really hope that we will get some sets from the first few movies redisigned, there is a lot of potential for castle builders, and maybe hogwarts express for train fags. I hope that we will get redisigned cerberus dog, nagini, basilisk, troll, hypogriff and so on because those designs should be updated. The theme has got great potential but we will see the final outcome. Lego hp was released during my dark ages and i regret bitterly not owning a single hp set, especially the old ones have great minifigures and charm to them. I just hope we wont get some shit 800$ ucs sculptureshit which only few people can justify spending that much money on.

The roller-legs have a lot of potential.
Judging from the double-clips sticking at the side of the feet makes me think you are already trying to make some posable coverup on the sides of the feet of sorts. If some sort of rounded shaping can cover up atleast the upper technic-axle it might look smoother.

Have you thought about making the torso part slightly bigger? 5-wide or something?

So it's my birthday today but Uni already started and most family is away unavailable or whatever. I planned to order Ninjago City the first of september as a gift for myself, but then let it slide thinking it wouldn't be that fun without celebrationtraditions surrounding it.

Most of the parts in the torso so far is just a substitute for pic-related, since it's not in LDD yet. I'll probably replace it with something else down the line.
>>
>>6513580
Honestly I'd just keep that part. Sort of keeps the nexo knights thing you have going. I like the idea of everybody getting an upgraded battle mech. Are you going to keep going for the rest of the group? And if so, still centaur-based? Or more closely themed with their weapon?

Well how I figure it, you'd be playing a "Tower-Defense" style of game.
Your character would build Defenses, Resource Generators, and Mob/Vehicle Spawners around a particular Objective, then either go on the Attack with their Mobs Swarms or stay on the Defensive, giving simple orders to Mobs as needed.
A Player Character dying won't directly loose them the game, but respawning might cost a side time or Resources.
>>
>>6512994

some people, man

can't you just talk them down into letting you send them that one last brick for free?
>>
>>6513635
when you say moba i think tf2
the only thing i've seen of league are the salty players

but i was thinking it was gonna stay an rts, with each unit being controlled manually a la fat princess
to introduce a hero unit with a higher priority than any other would screw up the balance

First of all, why is your example of an RTS a weird indie PS3 title (or the less good sequel)

Second., just give them different abilities than the base class. It's an RTS, so something like Starcraft? Different units can do different things. Where did you get the idea that you can only have low-tier minions?

That's something I've been working towards since around April, actually. Lance will probably end up being the only one with anything centaur-based, though.
>>
>>6513649
another anon said fat princess would be a good example for gameplay

i think i might be confused on the second part
in lego battles there can be only one of the hero class, balanced out by the fact that they can automatically heal units in close proximity and can use spells to increase defense, attack power and whatnot
so they're more of a supporting role to the rest of the army's raw strength
that and there really is no "base class" in lego battles, its just soldiers and vehicles
>>
>>6513666
Alright I am super confused, because there are more people in this discussion than I thought (the starcraft comment was my first time chiming in)
I've never played lego battles, but I didn't think you'd be restricting yourself to that style of gameplay
>>
>>6513672
okay here's my understanding
i posted >>6513342
this guy >>6513499 suggests it should be an rts moba, and i immediately thought of fat princess since it fit the type

but he more than likely meant something else

Did anyone think of this, too?:

2012:

Dino, Monster fighters

2015:

Jurassic World, Scooby-Doo

2018:

Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom and it was going to be S.C.O.O.B. but because it was delayed for a 2020 release we don't have any monster theme. The only case can be the new 2018 cartoon Ghostbusters:Ecto Force or another Scooby doo cartoon.

I made this because there's a Dino and Monster theme every 3 years from 2012.

What do you guys think?

Why doesn't LEGO focus more on adults? I Think that LEGO would make a pretty substantial amount if they made LEGO sets catered to adults, like Breaking Bad or Game of Thrones. I also think it would have sold to people that aren't usually into LEGO (how that now is possible)

It's over, Lego is finished
>>
>>6515640
Nope, it just needs to reconsider all fhese licences. And movies. Hell, this year we got two of them.
Also, this is why next year Nexo and Elves are EU-only and Super Hero Girls is US-only. They're doing the right choices to try reducing losses.
>>
>>6515640
I think that a lot of lego sets are unaffordable for children these days, and lets face it, afols make up 1% of lego buyers. Lego should make more 10-50$ range sets and sell them in large quantities rather than making 300 dollar sets. Few years ago most expensive and flagship sets costed around 100 dollars and that is top price most parents would spend on a toy. Only few 100+ dollars should be made in a year

Did you even read the article? It says the " LEGO Batman movie products also saw a great response from consumers."
>>6515691 is right though. There are a lot more $100+ sets on shelves than there used to be. It's hard to pump out entire waves of $15-20 sets though,(like with Exo Force) without there being some loss in quality. Something has to give.

Every single time I bother to pay attention to others in the toys aisle, it's parents letting the kids pick out whatever. Then they negotiate on price, 'get something smaller' not 'get something that's a Real Castle Theme™ reee'
>>
>>6515721
If anything they should make more 5-30$ sets from themes kids are more likely to buy. I hardly see small City, Ninjago or Friends stuff shelfwarming, but big SW or superhero sets are still arund after two years quite often. Some of the stores in my area still have the First Order transporter.

>>
>>6515640
>>6515746

Just a reminder that Lego is seeking fansites like TTV and BZP to help make an effort to better sell their SW Ultrabuilds. Why? Because they're overpriced (around $10 more than a Bionicle set of the same size) and as attractive as Galidor figures. Reminder that they prematurely cancelled Bionicle G2 due to poor budgeting and most likely not wanting their SW figure having any competition with any in-house theme. Reminder they brought this on themselves.

>$700 UCS set has 7 minifigures
>2 of them are new
>>
>>6515640
Does anyone feel like they're releasing so much stuff now that it's hard to keep up with it all? I have a feeling that may be why there are more unsold sets. They're all cool, but there's no way the average person can buy all of it. The price points are on the higher side also, so parents might only get one from a given theme and that's it. Themes that have a lot of cheaper sets could move more product probably.
>>
>>6515824
And they have made cool small harry potter sets which could be joined with hogwarts castle to make expansion, sets like clasrooms and dorm rooms, those were nice.

Also, what do you think, do lego employees browse lego general on /toy/ for feedback or is it pretty unknown

>>6515843
I'd rather have shitiest and worst of bionicle than star wars junk.

And there are idiots willing to buy that set for that price... it is beyond my comprehension that such idiots exist
For 800 dollars you can buy 15-20 really good sets and end up with 40 minifigures and fuckload of parts for mocs. Also you can buy lots of cmfs and so on... that millenium falcon is such a stupid set only degenerate consumerist could buy. 800$ can make all your childhood dreams come true and some idiots would burn it all on a single ugly grey statueshit which is unswooshable and only use for it is sitting on a shelf

You know what would save Lego tons of money? Ending the current Ideas program. Half of the approved projects that have gone into production were based on licensed IPs that Lego did very little with outside of Ideas (BBT, WALL-E, Beatles, I'm looking at you). The majority of projects that reach the review stage are rejected outright due to Lego's internal criteria, but it's still a waste of time and resources to go through the motions and consider them. Ideas gives lie to "the wisdom of the crowd." What 10,000 individuals like does not necessarily reflect what the public are willing to buy.

Lego should move Ideas to a "pay to play" model like a crowdfunding platform. It would be harder for shit projects to reach the review stage if everybody had to put their money where their mouths are to support a project, and there would still be no guarantee that a project would go into production. Funds collected by the rejected projects could even go to defraying the production costs of the approved projects.

>>
>>6516117
I seriously miss the days of Lego making cute caricatures of SW vehicles and locations. Small, compact, and simple. I miss when the idea was to take the Lego aesthetic and transform something and make it different. Not make fucking scale models that need to be super accurate to the source material right down to the fucking vents and control panels.
>>
>>6516138
Yeah, that aestethic was great, it was in spirit of lego and lego version of star wars,with very little special pieces. Now it's overdetailed and overdone. It feels like lego is forced to adopt to star wars aestethic rather than translating star wars iconic moments and locations to lego
>>
>>6516144
It's not just Star Wars. If we're going to discuss Lego sets being too expensive, you can translate the trend of hyper realism to almost all the themes. Where? Scale. A LOT of sets make huge vehicles and whatnot to be 1:1 with minifigures. I say in the world of Lego, cars can be tiny, planes can be 6 studs wide. Starter sets with lines like City are all I ever feel like buying these days. Why? Because a $10 buggy with a set piece is way more fun and affordable than a single huge ass something for like $30+
>>
The main problem i see with licenced Lego sets is they are "good" to make to make vehicles and ships but for some scenes recreation, they suck.
Now ok, for Star wars it kinda works, people mostly wants spaceships and stuff. And kids prefer to buy ships than scene. But they just don't try for scenes, remember Assault on hoth. A disaster. The only one actually good i remember was Ewok tree village.
Now the Super Heroes series, they try to apply Star wars logic to that, almost no scene but vehicles. I bought nothing in 2017 in that serie and i'm fan of comics. Last set that really excited me was Web warriors bridge. Why selling the hulks with horrible motos ? They barely fit on it. Oh and that Thor ragnarock arena... 60$ for a wall + figs. This is airport hero battle 2.0.
Then again i can understand, kids love everything that roll or fly. But for me, i just reduced this year to buying stuff for my city.
>>
>>6516236
i agree with you, but i think you forgot to mention LotR, which i think had pretty good scenes
>>
>>6516245
Harry potter had some pretty decent locations because there isn't much vehicleshit except for hogwarts express and ford but those were good actually and we rarely get cheap trains. Also potc had some really good sets too, shame we only got silent mary from this movie, it could have been made instead of fucking moana
>>
>>6516245
And i forgot to mention, lotr was absolutely the best, but lego really is retarded for missing barad dur and minas tirith opportunities and balrog set, i believe army builders would sell like hotcakes also.

>>6516245
Well i won't mention dead series for today problems, but yeah it was nice for "Medieval" building. Only point i didn't like is we didn't get any "full castle" but only front gates.

I like the ideas project personally. But they could be a bit more strict with the rules for uploading.
It's not a project they have to put very much effort into if they don't want to. It's basically a waiting game of people having fun with an arbitrary milestone to weed things out. I got my aunt the beatles sub and she really loved it and built it together. The fishing store is great. While the mech wasn't for everyone, we got a classic space set out of it.

Also Voltron is probably the least Weeaboo gook IP around. It's the 80's nostalgia equivalent of calling Pokemon or Powerrangers Weeaboo.

>>6516174
I have the same right now, sort of. My own cars and models tend to be exactly in the middle of them. Way more dense and detailed than city, but much smaller than the giant overscaled stuff.
For buildings this isn't really the case though. Modulars make me cream myself a little, while the price is very very high, the attention to detail and complexity demands my respect and appreciation. Made just a small spacedoor diorama the some time ago with the partsbudget of a current 80+ pricerange set.


>>6515691
This guy is spot on. Much like why i thought people female figures were so rare (this has really changed in the last years though) and might have sold less, pretty much all female figures were in the €20+ sets. Not everybody buys the more expensive sets, i had for the most part had 90's equivalent of smaller up to €20ish sets growing up with maybe one big castle or technic set. I do absolutely love the superdetailed extravagant sets we see today though, we truly live in a goldenage for Lego at the moment.

Reminds me of the Aachener Dom a bit.
The classic colourscheme and clean use of surfaces is very nice.

I personally wouldn't have used tan for the lions. Also the white squares that are flush to the black/red timberframing next to it feel a bit abrupt. Maybe using one consistent colour for wood elements might make it more cohesive. Now the back tower has both brown, white and black for wooden elements.

I think Lego needs more open-ended themes that don't already have a story built in. I remember liking the more generic pirates, castle and ninja themes as a kid as I could really create each character and make my own adventures from scratch.

>>6517111
I dont know why lego ditched all those classic lego themes, sure we've got ninjago and it has got some great sets, but at first ninjago was made in some fantasy setting than it was later set in some futuristic world, but at least it is the best theme with city nowadays. Atleast we could get 1 classic theme every 1-2 years, i mean playmobil is doing just that and i dont see them bankrupt or something
Also i would really like those themes return aslong with western which everyone forgets about and in my opinion it was a great theme

They brought this upon themselves, because they removed their own themes so they would not make competiton for licenseshit. At first licences saved lego now it will be their doom if they dont make changes to their business. Also with more licences the price of sets go up, and less parents are willing to buy those sets and find something cheaper instead because they dont see value in those sets. For example in my country jokers balloon escape costs 20€ and small city starter set is 10€, is that joker balloon escape worth twice as much and is twice as good as the city set? I dont think so and so do a lot of parents, this was just one example and there are many more

So one of the things on my long list of shit to do/work on is a Lego amusement park.
Of course I plan to use the Friends amusement park stuff as a base, but then build extra attractions myself.

One of the ideas I had for a ride would be a licensed ride. Or maby it's not licensed and the park owner/carnies just built it to cash in, I don't know yet. Either way, the idea was for a Star Wars themed ride, similar to the Friends Space Ride set.
So I got one of the Space Rides, then modified a Microfighters X-Wing and Y-Wing that I had kicking about and this is what I got.

The SW ships are noticeably heavier then the ones that came with the sets and you can see that they kinda make it "sag" a bit more then it should.

So I'm looking for feed back.
Should I ignore this and just keep the basic ride like this?
Or should I try and build something different? I was thinking maby some sort of junior/kids ride, that just goes around in a circle, maby a little gentle up and down.

And a close pic of the Y-Wing.
I want to also replace the domes behind the "cockpit" with some of the original Astromech prints later on, blue/R2 for the X-Wing and Red for the Y-Wing.

If you live in the US, are you able to order from the EU version of the site and still get the 2018 sets?

I think so. But I'm not sure because I live in EU.

Lego can't make a lot of new moulds. Lego choose the Rock Monsters because it was cheaper.

We can only hope so. I suspect the color scheme will stay, but the designs will be less undead horde and more technical doo-daddy.

I really hate how the concept art and prototypes had a heavily industrial look with all the stuff decals, yellow trim, and warning stripes. NONE of that made it into the actual sets and instead everything is infested with neon orange.

as long as they depend on shitty licenses and shy away from the $20-$40 market. literally all i see in retail stores are heroes, star wars, city, and sets that are either $10-20 or $60+. huge turnoff for a lifelong builder. i buy more from non-LEGO sources like ebay.

Even the Stone faction had some great initial concepts. They would have required an amount of new parts that would make LEGO squirm, but the point stands.

Western is not a "classic" theme, it didn't last for long and came around the same time as Adventures and Aquazone. Some of the sets were great, though, and considering how often western-themed figures show up in blindbags I won't be surprised if the eventual Nexo replacement will be some sort of western-based fantasy theme.
>>
>>6517394
Most of the concepts were made, just more brick built than molded (especially the golems and such)
Though their whole color scheme is just off for me. all the new rock molded pieces for minifigs and stuff is purple so it's hard to use them for other things. Some more natural rock color with purple accents would have been better imo
Then again, all of next knights is pretty painfully brightly colored which kind of kills the "knight" half of the concept
>>6517325
I mean this is way better than the fortex we got. I do know that it's a kid toy and making it largely colored instead of neutral makes sense for kids, but a man has a right to bitch. (Though ninjago has the same color coded characters and their sets use color way better)
>>
>>6517206
The stuff previewed features spider-themed vehicles, so I think it'll be something halfway between these zombie guys and the unused Chima beetle warriors that had the same black/transparent green color scheme.

I really hope they'll use the orcs for something in the future, either for more NK, a new theme, or even Ninjago if nothing else. I understand why they didn't use the dragon people since Ninjago had reptile people more than once and Chima had crocs, but it's been a decade or so since the Castle orcs.
>>
>>6517283
There's more than one, CMF and Monster Fighters concept art from a while ago, that one which also showed what eventually became the Chima mamooth bigfig and the huge NK guys, featured a figure that straight up looked like a night goblin and some WH-inspired evil elves.
>>
>>6517368
Probably not anytime soon, but if they won't act after that new report it's possible they'll go back to the early 2000s problems within next 10-15 years.

a dutch website has 3 of the han solo lego sets listed as for sale with a delivery time of 8 working days ...

LEGO Star Wars Villain Vehicle Han Solo -> 48.99E

LEGO Star Wars han solo great vehicle -> 28.99E

Considering how many designers seem to like tabletop games based on the Nexo drawings and the CMF not-dwarf slayer, I think Deadlands-like cowboys vs. zombie/ghost outlaws theme with some sci-fi tech is the most likely

>>6517475
There wasn't much and almost all of it was used for sets, here it is, though
>>
>>6517481
And here's the CMF art. There was one more page but I can't find it rn, it was that one with a cyclops bigfig.

>Ninjago had reptile people more than once
The vermillion were the original movie villains before the shark army. That's why they choose to reuse them.

Idk if many of you like KKII but it was originally going to be a new wave in 2007. The main villain was a yellow knight and an army of gargoyles.

I actually forgot about the vermillon guys, I was refering to the cultist wave which had snakes in all bigger sets

Reminder that Chima was going to have fucking raptors as villains.
Also,there are a lot of reasons why we didn't get those villains like:new moulds,kids at testings didn't like them,Lego wanting to re-use old moulds,etc.

The ice stuff would suck either way, imo. In the first year Chima had a good mix of different animals but after that it got too monotonous. The beetles, rats and monkeys from concept art would be better than anything else they considered.

Source? The theme was already three years old when it ended and there was the viking one running simultaneously, so it sounds weird.

I can't find a link. I read this on BZPower around 2008. A designer of the theme showed some conecpt art at an event though we've never got pics of them.

This one?

I wonder if getting the scooby doo license stopped them from doing the parody characters
But yeah, looks like it's pretty close to the finished sets, which is a testament to how cool of a theme it was
>>
Jestro. Don't forget that this isn't all the concept art and that there is way more which might never be revealed.
>>
The lava and stone monster are pretty close to the finished product so I do wonder if the Green dead army are the 2018 villains. Of course,they won't look as cool ast the art.

What if they'll use the orcs in the final Elves wave instead of NK

>>
>>6517530
>they have little goblins
Oh yea. How did I forget those cuties.
>>
>>6517527
The goblins in current Elves sets use the same arms as Nexo small lava guys and the general mold is similar too (basically it's the same figure without the holes for horns and stud on top), if that counts, and one Friends set had the baby minifig from CMF recolored in flesh colors. Otherwise nope.
