    They have the Nintendo license, and say NOW is not the time to do a Metroid set? :rolleyes:

    Does anyone have any good Batmobile MOCs they know of? I was thinking about the new Tumbler, but there's also some cool custom ones out there I've been exploring. A lot of BTAS stuff that looks interesting.

    Just for Super Mario, but that might change in the future depending on their partnership’s success.

    This guy has a ton of cool Lego replicas of various Batmobiles. I just discovered him earlier today. His instructions all cost though

    I'm hoping Lego will eventually make a minifig-scale TAS Batmobile, to go with the '66, '89, Tumbler, etc.

    I meant that I literally built it, (and can thus recommend it as being a good one) not that I designed it. I'm not Jerry. :)

    Meh. I have no interest in modern TV sitcom sets. Get back to me when it's The Munsters.

    Pretty "meh" on the Jazz one, too. But, I recognize these (and most Lego sets) aren't always going to be something I want. I think I get about 15 sets a year, they make a few hundred varieties.

    Any thoughts on the Technic Liebherr 9800? I'm a bit tempted to buy and build a giant technic set and the new bulldozer seems less exciting.

    If you get it at a decent discount and can live with the fact that you don’t get a remote to control it but an app that Lego could shout down at any time render your set functionless it is a good set.

    I built it when it first came out it's quite a cool set. One thing to be wary of, though, is that unless they've updated the control app in the two years since it came out you have to have all motors connected to the control hubs in order to carry out the test phases, even when you've not actually used them in the build. It seems (or seemed at the time) that it determined which hub to control based on which motors were connected, rather than by dedicated pairing; it makes setup simpler, but means it can't identify the hubs if they don't have their final configurations. I did actually email Lego about this as a problem, perhaps others did, too; they may have changed the app to make it testable at the points the instructions say to test it.

    Thanks for the input guys. I'll look if I can find it for a decent price and then decide.

    I had a good day picking blind bags today! Bought 8, only one duplicate. I’m 10/12 of the way there! Side note: could there be any more characters with shields this wave?!

    I’ve been going back and forth on it in my head for a couple weeks now but I think I’m going to pass on the UCS Tumbler reissue.

    It’s like $373 in Canada after tax. Which is fucked up because:

    89 Batmobile is $250 USD and $300 CDN

    Tumbler is $230 USD and $330 CDN

    The crazier thing it the 89 is larger, has like 1000 + more pieces and 3 minifigs. Plus I got the free minifig Batmobile with it.

    It’s just bananas. I even emailed LEGO and all I got was the basic corporate response. So yeah man, gonna pass.
