Lego IDEAS Sets

I was in my local Lego store in Columbus, OH earlier this week and I was told by the manager that they will be receiving a new Lego Idea's set in a month. Could this finally be the Wall-E set or Big Bang Theory set we've all been waiting for? If anyone has any concrete info, please share. Also, would be nice if it was Doctor Who....

    It might be one of those, although designs are normally revealed earlier than one month before hitting shelves. Or it might just be new stock of the exosuit, or a ploy to get you to come back and spend.

    Rumour has it the TBBT set will be out in mid-August.

    Yes, I heard late summer too, nothing as early as June.

    Although I'm a TBBT fan, I'd be surprised if that sells well.

    Honestly, that is quite disappointing that Lego decides to make a set for a show that throws "intelligent" people at the bottom of the totem pole.  Kinda tarnishes the image they are after, no?  Of course, most people are successfully brainwashed into hating on smart people these days with not much effort.

    I thought that show praised smart people? I've only seen season 1, so I guess I must be too "stupid" to not realize what you are saying.

    I love the show. Shows the smart people as flawed and normal with quirks.
    pretty much treated like any other sitcom character really.

    I also don't really see how TBBT throws intelligent people at the bottom of the totem pole. The characters are all interesting in their own ways and if anything it seems to shine a hilariously accurate light on what I consider nerd / dork culture. That isn't a bad thing. Having been one of those guys that went to the comic store every Wednesday with friends, I think the show is pretty spot on. I still don't think the set will sell well beyond investors expecting it to do big things, but who knows. It isn't a set I expect to still be relevant or sought after in 5 to 10 years.

    I get the sense it is a trial balloon for similarly-themed pop culture tribute sets. 

    (There have been many Lego-friendly references on the Big Bang Theory over the years.)

    If it sells off the shelf, maybe we'll see display vignettes for other popular television shows or movies.  (Firefly!)

    Big Bang celebrates the quirks of these particular characters.  I certainly wouldn't take it as a slight against theoretical physicists, mathematicians, engineers, pharmaceutical reps, etc.

    I wouldn't take Brooklyn Nine-Nine as an indictment of police investigators.

    I think BBT will sell quite well.
