    That looks stellar! The price really stings though.

    Nice! I voted for the Gold Spaceman and the Kraken faction for Castle. Needs us some medieval ship sets outside of Vikings, and the Krakens would be perfect for that purpose.

    Worst timing from Lego to drop a Zelda set ever… guess I’m out $300.

    Way too expensive for what it is. And I am a huge zelda fan. It is even kinda boring to look at.

    I don't remember who was asking but the Water Park GWP is now live. Spend $100 on CITY, Friends, DreamZzz, or Ninjago to get it.

    https://www.lego.com/en-us/product/water-park-40685

    Zelda Lego is a dream come true. I wonder if they will have a special GWP for it. $300 for 2500 pieces and only 4 minifigures is a bit steep though. Definitely will wait for double VIP or some "spend $200" GWP.

    They didn't have any special GWP since the preorders went live today. My wife didn't wait for any double points or GWP to get this one.

    Shoot, that was me. I've been ogling that Waterpark GWP for months. Sadly I don't have $100 worth of Lego sets in those categories that I can justify splurging on right now. I see cool stuff, but nothing I planned to buy. I just spent $50 on Lego for my boyfriend's birthday AND bought that Creator set on sale at Target. He'd kill me if I bought a bunch of sets just to get a GWP. If Creator sets were included, I'd splurge on that Space Rollercoaster. But that said, I added up all the smaller sets I planned to get down the line (including the new bus coming out June First) and it came out to $69.97, so I'd STILL need to find something in that price range to buy within those themes.

    Yeesh, talk about first world problems. Still sucks though. If anyone happens to score one, I'd be happy to purchase it from you for whatever you fit its worth shipped. I'd even give a shout out to you on my YouTube channel with its wide viewing audience of like 6 people haha.

    I was so trepidatious about this vote because I was so torn. Space I flip flopped abd originally wanted Gold for MOC purposes, but the space logo is lost on it and Cyan is my favorite color so I went with the Blue.

    I was more torn between the Medieval Factions. I really love the idea and logo of the Kraken Knight, but the off green comics and pale logo just put me off. Abd as much as I love crows, we already have Black Falcons. I never got the collectable Crow Knight, but I wouldn't be mad if we ended up with him again because crows are awesome.

    Had to vote Griffin even if I didn't love the colors. It's a wild cool mythical Medieval type of creature and always been a favorite of mine. I always told myself if i could haveca mythical familiar or a Zord, it would be a Griffin. I would have rather had a Hippogriff just to further differentiate from the Lion Crusaders and the Dragon Kibgdom logos, but it's different enough.

    I wish the Griffin colors were a bit different, but I dig the overall color scheme. I would have switched out the gray for gold, but I really dig em.

    I AM HYPED.

    An X-Mansion was my #1 dream wish for a set. Still a few months away, but can't wait to see how this turns out, even though that price seems like too much, and 10 minifigures is nowhere near enough (should've had 20+ like the Bugle, to be the ultimate X-Men set just like the Bugle was for Spider-Man).

    I voted for the teal spaceman, and for the Griffins as well. The Krakens look awesome and I'm sure they'll win, but I wanted to show Lego there's interest in the Griffins too. Hopefully both those new factions materialize somewhere eventually. The more Castle in our future, the better!

    Nice. Thanks for the heads-up and the link!

    I was torn between the teal and gold spacemen… went gold only because I feel we’re less likely to ever get it in another set, whereas teal (or the others) might have a chance.

    Went Griffin for the Castle faction, but would also be totally fine with Kraken winning.

    I just made a video overview of my Fright Knight style MOC before I tear it apart (to of course make it bigger and better).

    If anyone wants to check it out, I would appreciate some comments on it and possible advice/positive criticism. I want to improve my builds while still maintaining fun playability and within a budgetary scope of limited parts/funds

    As a fellow Griffin fan, I spent an embarrassing amount of time searching for the Chima Lion.

    The LOTR set went up last night and the GWP sold out by sometime this morning. I decided to pass on it.
