I guess we'll wait and see what happens with pricing and release dates.
Images of the minifigures have finally been released for 'The Big Bang Theory'; I reckon it'll be soon that we can expect to see images of the set, I am looking forward as the minifigures look absolutely fantastic. Expect to see pictures of 2 more minifigures tomorrow and hopefully after that it'll be the build. https://ideas.lego.com/blogs/1-blog/post/31 :smile:
"Ahead of the toy giant releasing the first look at Leonard and Sheldon’s LEGO living room set on Wednesday, EW has an exclusive sneak peek at some of the mini-figures that will be included"
I'm a fan of The Big Bang Theory and I didn't think this show made a good idea for a LEGO set and still don't!
No what would really be cool....is if these "room" sets could replace, or be an add on floor, to one of the modulars.
Think Leonard could have been better with a different hairpiece, and didn't Penny have a haircut? (or at least she did in the last episode I watched a while back).
It should really be swept the other way though for Howard.
There was a lot of debate about the right hair for howard and I think they probably made the right choice (short of a new mould) while his parting isn't as distinct as that it does have a distinct direction to it, the Ron Weasly one (http://brickset.com/parts/4153400) would be lacking in that respect.
Leonard I'd have probably given (what I think of as) the Mutt hair piece (http://brickset.com/parts/4535553)
Giving Penny the new short hair would have been a mistake, she might regrow her hair which means it would lock the mini figure to only a couple of seasons.
Even that they could have made a better LEGO version of. If you actually look at the real lantern it doesn't look like this set's version at all.
The creator of this set must have watched the one episode where Penny wasn't wearing short sleeves and shorts or a short sleeved dress or a T-shirt with dorm pants and slippers. I would have given her a "Penny blossom" for her hair and maybe a thermos for her morning coffee when she drives to work with her check engine light on.
Leornard should have a tile that says "SARCASM".
Sheldon should have a laptop, unless that's included in the set on his desk.
Raj is spot on except I would give him a wine bottle instead of that dog so he can talk to women.
It kind of feels like a $60 mini-figure set to me.
LEGO dropped the ball a bit and rehashed parts. While I understand why they need to do that, they really need to better match.
Howard should have a bowl cut, and I'm sure they could find more places to use a hair piece like that. Leonard should have something more akin to the 'sleepy boy' from CMF, Penny should have something more akin to the 'pop star' hair from CMF. Amy's they got spot on (then again I'm pretty sure that is from the 'female scientist' in CMF that looked suspiciously like Amy to begin with), same with Sheldon I think.
Raj has the dog because in many ways that is who he is in a 'relationship' with.
Overall I think this set is fitting for where the set could go. It is pretty true to the IDEAS version too. I'm still surprised they are doing this as a set, but I'll take one.
I'm not over impressed with any of the female minifigs. Amy and Bernadette are better than Penny, but still not great.
Actually, I dare say a few AFOLs might have some thoughts on the matter.
Sheldon should have the hairpiece that was originally used for Bill Murray by the creator of the Ghostbusters set which LEGO should have used as well but changed.
If Sheldon let his hair grow as long as this set portrays he would feel like a hippie.
I could forgive the table not being transparent if it weren't also too small.
There should definitely be a TV and Sheldon's desk should be there. If he's not in his spot on the couch, he's in front of his laptop the majority of the time.
The kitchen is definitely part of that room and probably would have made the set look complete.
