I don't think Galaxy Squad, Architecture or TMNT will do anything at all
TLR could do very well, some of the sets look amazing and I'm willing to bet the movie does a lot better than Prince of Persia or John Carter. Those series are so unique, they might be too involved for average people to care. The Lone Ranger seems like it will appeal to a bigger, more generalized audience and it also seems more action packed. People like action and guns, storyline - not so much.
Monster Fighters may do very well too. I've been slacking on MF and I'm regretting not buying the train from WM. Sales for that series should do very well around October.
ME Lego sets would be awesome. I also know that like Futurama sets, they will never happen.
Gameplay-wise, I discovered that Kaidan was way better in 3, whereas Ashley had turned into Garrus-lite, making her really redundant. I still usually don't stick with Kaidan, though, just because I can't separate him from Carth Onassi and his mid- to late-game tantrums.
It also means...
"May the spirits of our ancestors guide and protect us."
"May fortune smile upon us"
It means different things to different people based on context.
It can also be taken for "I understand" without having to use further words, between two people who "get it" without further explanation.
Garrus does have a great story and is quite funny, Ashley needs to take a chill pill, maybe a vacation, or something.
Fully agree on Ashley, I always saved her over Kadian, but when three came out I redid a save saving him jsut to see the story difference. MY God how terrible they made her and how tolerable they made him.
Pretty much the only one I could never stand was Tali and to a lesser degree Jacob.
Jack was fun to have in the party for her comments, as was Zaeed... Jack's Shockwave was very useful as well.
I often played 2 with Jack and Tali. Tali's Combat Drone was nice for forcing enemies out of hiding.
"Go get 'em, Chiktikka! Good girl!"
"Nothing's faster than Chiktikka vas Paus!"
"Go for the optics, Chiktikka! Go for the optics!"
2 I used Legion and Jack mostly for asthetics.
3 I usually ended up playing with Liara and Javik, those two just tore things apart.
I'd be happy to drop 300 on a good UCS Normandy.
On-topic, the DINO sets seem to finally be creeping above RRP.
I'd easily spend $200-300 on a bad ass SR-2.
Also, is there a reason the forum doesn't have a "Lounge" type area to talk about stuff other than Lego?
I've suggested it, both publicly and privately to the admins, but never gotten a reply either way about it.
So I'll toss it out again... We need a lounge, we are a community of people who love LEGO, but also love other things (clearly Mass Effect is one of them), it would provide a place to move these things to and keep the family together.
Of couse the downside is I have to read oodles of spoilers on Mass Effect since that game has been in my "to play" pile for how many years now :p
And it would accomplish two things immediately:
1) Allow the on-topic conversations to better stay that way
2) Allow Admins more options in handling off-topic conversation that does crop up in other threads - redirect people to the O/T area, and/or split the thread directly into that area.
Politics, much the same thing, with maybe ever so slightly more chance of change. Or maybe not... :)
Mass Effect doesn't cover either topic. :)
It would be reasonable to have an off-topic area that was anything but religion and politics, I can see keeping those two out, anything else could be fair game. Well, get off your duff and play. Mass Effect came out 6 years ago, get on it! :) Then you too can say Keelah Se'lai and understand what it really means. :)
Keelah Se'lai Indeed.
Just don't bring up the Enkindlers, lest you want things to devolve into a religious brouhaha.
@mathew I totally agree with how things are run around here, it makes little sense to me. They jam threads together then spread other apart, say not to ask opinions on sets (which if I'm not mistaken is a part of what a forum is for?) and just general do some head scratching things.
Keep calm, and skim/scan on.
1) The concept of the BOGO has diminished greatly the last couple years with restrictions on many themes and or bigger sets (TRU mostly here)
2) Limits on purchasing ([email protected], Amazon, TRU, etc.)
3) Banishment of people from some retail outlets ([email protected], Amazon)
In 2010 & 2011, it was much easier and frequent to find deals on resellable sets bought at that point. 2012 was less so and 2013 is even harder.
The more interesting aspects, I think, are on the demand side. Will future post retirement demand begin ebbing?
1) has LEGO over supplied? Kept some sets active too long (DS and others), and simply over supplied other sets.
2) has LEGO shot themselves (and resellers) in the foot with too many themes? I mean, your average LEGO customer isn't going to buy more LEGOS just because there are more sets to buy, are they? I'm not. I become more selective.
3) is the demand for LEGO ebbing?
Resellers are going to go after the hard to find sets most times and only a handful of those sets are worth it. While some resellers buy copious amounts of smaller sets to hope to strike it big, and I think those people will most likely be pinged by this glut of lines, but I think there massive resellers know what almost always sells and what to buy regardless of the lines out there.
I think LEGO is really shooting themselves in the foot with too many lines because you dilute your own buying pool.
You make all of these lines that may sell marginally instead of dedicating to a line to make that line great.. The got this right with Ninjago, but then decided Chima had to be introduced.. which was a mistake IMO.
Ninjago was not losing popularity so why make a line that could compete for dollars against the line selling insanely well?
I get that you want to do lines like MF which was a hit but for every one of those you get a PoP and Atlantis.
I say you keep MF going and make a cartoon for it, and keep selling the lines.. Im sure they could do more if they set their minds to it for MF
