I'm totally in for most of the LOTR Lego sets. The Helm's Deep and Weather top sets look awesome!

The Marvel sets are hit and miss. The Quinjet set looks really good. The Hulk set . . . not so much. Can't believe Deadpool's getting a figure this early. Somebody at Lego must be a fan. :mrgreen:

Star Wars is a bit disappointing. But after so many years there's not much left undone. If Jabba's palace was bigger, more elaborate maybe. So at least I'm saving money somewhere.

I was hoping for more DC Universe stuff, like Green Lantern and Flash.

Seconded.

And....ARRGGGHHHHHH!!!! :twisted: There's a VERY cool Lego Toy Fair promo pack with Iron Man and Captain America minifigs in it. Only it looks as if they won't be in the actual line. I hope they see some sort of release elsewhere.

Sorry 'bout the double-post.

It's good for those of us that skipped the yellow face era though. And they do seem like upgrades in many respects.

Jabba's Palace and the Skiff are the ones that get my attention.

Actually thats my favorite set-- ( I might actually keep it (or at least the throne room) instead of just stripping the minis out of it-- That GG and Jabba are leaps and bounds better than the previous versions...

Ive noticed however that it looks like the helmets are starting to be a bit oversized..

That Helms Deep looks insane. I am going to be all over that.

Especially since I just realized one of the other sets connects with it to make it even bigger!

Where the heck am I going to put all these LEGOS? :shock:

Look at the Orc Army set. There's a section of wall there.

That section connects to the rest of the wall in the larger set.

They started doing this with Harry Potter, and I'm glad to see it continue here.
