    Kind of sad Frog Thor and Croc Loki don't have head gear but uh yeah I live.

    Do like Wanda and Gamora but undecided on whether I'm going to hunt for them. No interest in the rest.

    Throg is OK without it, at least he has a tiny Mjolnir.
    Croki is just a plain baby croc with nothing to indicate he is a Loki.

    Not interested in that CMF series, save for the guy with the coffee mug and the Frog. (Loki, as I understand) And that interest is only because he looks regular enough to use for whatever I want.

    Is it bad that I'm actually tempted to pick up the Bugle sooner rather than later, just to get this sailboat GWP? Gosh darn it, it looks good. Curse you, Lego!!

    Lego doesn't think it is bad. Honestly it is a good idea to pick it up for the sailboat.

    The Sailboat looks real nice, but I don't know if I have $200 worth of "must get" right now to get it.

    In other news I found the new Mario Series 3 blind packs at Target the other day but was street-date blocked at the register. The associate was really apologetic and offered to hold a couple for me but I just said no, that's ok. But yeah, those should be out on/around August 1 which is Sunday (what?!?).

    Well that is good that they're already distributed. Hopefully they'll be able to be purchased on the 1st.

    The information for upcoming releases in this line appears to be in flux. My best guess would be that we’re getting wave 2 as planned, then the line is ending or going on hiatus next year, and we’re getting a similar but different toyline in 2023. It’s all worded rather vaguely, IMO.

    As long as I can get these sets, I care not how they rebrand. But yeah, the wording is somewhat weird.

    I got the Seinfeld apartment set from the FedEx guy moments ago. Looks like it'll be a lot of fun. My only gripe is that Newman should be fatter than an average minifig!

    Strange. I don't know how preorders work on Lego.com, but I placed a preorder for the Mandalorian Forge. It's been 2 hours and I still have not yet gotten a Confirmation Email.

    I wanted the sharkhead guy and the boombox. So yeah, hoping for this wave at least.

    Awesome! Thanks for the link.

    As for the confirmation email, I have seen them delayed for hours or half a day. Best way is to check your account and see if it shows up there. I always take a screenshot of the order number just in case. There was only one time when the order actually never showed up in the account or even their computer system. Luckily I could reorder the items.

    This is a pretty awesome set. I even agreed with my family that this is what I should get for 2 of my little cousins for Christmas this year.

    Also, at the moment, it's not showing up on my account.
