General Dreamzzz Discussion

With the official launch of the theme - initially just with the tv show that backs it up anyway - it’s about time we had a thread to discuss both the Dreamzzz TV show and the sets when we get chance to have them in our hands.

Personally I love the set designs and can’t wait to find out more about all the build options and the details of the minifigs. It just seems like a super eclectic, properly playful theme and it’ll definitely benefit from being backed up with animation. Ninjago is great but to me  this offers up something different.

I’ve seen the first episode of the TV show that goes with the theme on YouTube. We don’t know much about the Dreamworld yet but I did like the main characters - their introduction felt fairly organic and I appreciated some time getting to know them, balanced fairly well with tasters of the the more fantastical elements. The animation feels pretty clean and colourful too - I suspect it’s a conscious choice but it particularly stands out in the difference between ‘normal’ and dreams. I look forward to seeing more episodes and how the lore translates into the sets.

    It’s taken me a week but I’ve finally completed watching the 10 episodes of the ‘Trials of the Dreamchasers’ storyline that released last week. There’s not too much I can compare it to from the perspective of current kids TV but I have seen various Ninjago episodes before.

    The overall plot of the Nightmare King being a threat to everyone’s sleep is decent - with plenty of quests and heightening stakes throughout to keep interest. There isn’t an awful lot of a lore about the organisation the main characters become part of, but if they did try to elaborate on it too much kids might lose interest in the exposition. The real/waking world subplots focus a lot on ‘Sheep Week’ which seems to be a week long sports day - I found that slightly confusing as a non-American but there are common friend/bully/teacher themes many kids will understand. The dialogue included a few weirdly outdated terms like ‘broseph’ but that won’t matter to kids because they feel like one or two whole generations away!

    I liked the show in general more than Ninjago but I accept that there are so many seasons of that now that some will be better than others. Time will tell if the extra media gets kids’ attention for the sets themselves.

    The August range of Dreamzzz sets portrays the storyline well - there are a couple of sets with subject matter that only appears for a couple of seconds but its the variety of them that interests me most overall.

    I imagine they'll incorporate more lore as/if the show continues onward. Ninjago was pretty basic to begin with too. Of course, now it's somewhat reached a point where its lore at times makes weird leaps or mostly starts to feel like "So this thing happened to Wu and/or Garmadon and/or their father, and it just hasn't come up before".

    Finished watching the series last night, looking forward to buying a few of the related sets. One big disappointment looking at the sets is that it does not look like we are getting the classic space torso for Mr. Oz.
