From what I've read in the forums thus far, the timeline round LEGO figures and sets is not consistent with real life timeline, even if it throws references to real life (i.e. the Detective's Office referencing American Prohibition with the smuggled candy).
I noticed in set 60026 Town Square there is a statue with a tile marked "1432" (https://farm6.staticflickr.com/5614/15615378405_67635808f7_b.jpg)
. I'm curious if there's a way to find out who this figure is, by use of any other LEGO sets made or other LEGO-related material. It looks like the figures from Castle 2013, so would that set that theme in 1432 LEGO years? I know I'm jumping the gun on that, but I'd like to know if anyone else thought about it or knows why they chose that date.
Another thought is in the Scooby-Doo "Mummy Museum Mystery" set (can't remember the number). Part of the stickers shows Johnny Thunder with a plaque stating "1922" (http://alpha.bricklink.com/pages/clone/catalogitem.page?P=75900stk01b&idColor=0#T=C&C=0)
. Has the years for the Adventurer's theme been established officially or is this the first time? As stated before, the vehicles and fashion make it look 20's-40's (especially compared to Indiana Jones in the theme's nature), but it does not always relate to our real world timeline in terms of development.
Just food for thought, and discussion.
P.S. I run a group of LEGO fans called Brick Theorists and we discuss things like this in LEGO themes. Sometimes relating them to real life, like "what would a flick fire missile in real life look like?". So this is a common type of thinking for us. Also, I've seen similar types of timeline posting on Eurobricks, notably here: http://www.eurobricks.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=76493
That's just a guess of course, because I don't know of any other significance to 1432 (I don't see anything that jumps out in Danish history, for example).
