If these were LEGO Star Wars sets it'd be the same story, and that's one of the LEGO Group's biggest themes year after year. So let's not start thinking that printing vs. stickers is a reflection of how much the LEGO Group cares about or invests in the theme. Clearly they invested enough to create at least nine new molds, and I'm sure that cost them way more than printed parts would have.
With that said, yes, Scooby-Doo was obviously not a high-profile license on the level of, say, Star Wars or Super Heroes. I expect the Mystery Machine will probably have the most lasting value as far as sets are concerned, since it's so iconic.
In remembrance of this theme, let's all raise our glasses to the time the LEGO Maniac teamed up with the Scooby-Doo gang against the Insectoids.
And also much different than Minecraft. SD I'm sure sells well, but I'm sure Minecraft is in an entirely different echelon of sales.
Other retailers are selling the Castle and Mystery Machine for about 20% right now too. I'm gonna grab the collection, since I don't have the Castle yet. IDK about the castle, but I'm fairly confident the Mystery Machine will be a hit with kids and adults alike. I certainly like the Mystery Machine the best.
Scooby Doo was my #1 show when I was young. Must have watched at least a thousand hours of it as a kid.
it looked tempting.
The discounts have the same pattern as the year-ends on Chima, City and Ninjago.
(Not quite as drastic as the Galaxy Squad.)
And for the love of all that is holy, don't say anything like Scrappy Doo or Scooby Dum.
I'm of a similar opinion, and i say it as a big fan of both the Scooby Doo and Monster Fighter themes. Like a few of the licenced themes they suffer a little by being more about minifigures than builds, by doing a single wave they avoid too much obvious rehashing of ideas.
in fact I can think of only two other obvious sets for Scooby Doo, Abandoned Amusement Park and Pirate Ghost Ship.
they might have (and potentially still could) get away with a second wave, but sometimes I think it's best for them to step away before it falls apart.
I am curious to see if the Dimensions connection leads to any other Hanna Barbara stuff but not going to hold my breath.
I'd like more Hanna Babara, too. Lots of fun characters there. That's a whole CMF line in itself.
Ha, pretty much. They just wouldn't have much appeal as minifigures I don't think.
As an aside, at my local TRU there's a side-kick display with some off-brand minifigure knights in CMF packaging. It's right in the middle of the Lego section, so one could be easily confused into thinking these are Lego product.
Funny thing, not ONE of them has moved in the last month.
I hope we get to see the Mansion on discount before its wiped. Would really like to have the whole crew .
Though, the better deal, if you didn't own the Mystery Machine yet, was the Scooby Doo three pack (mentioned a few posts above) on shop.Lego, which was recently discounted down to about $105 plus double points, though the Mystery Machine is temporarily sold out until at least after Easter (March 28th).
