    Got my Edna Mode polybag yesterday, for a reasonable price from Ebay. Haven't seen the Incredibles 2 yet but hoping to make it to the cinema soon. I agree that Frozone is a sad absence from the minifigure selection.

    Maybe they'll include him if they ever  get around to the second series of Disney CMFs? (wouldn't be among my first choice of Disney characters for a CMF series but frankly I'm giving up hope of ever getting any more so I'd take it)

    I suspect the decisions on the Minifigures was very much down to the Juniors branding - in the game Brick is a big fig, Mr Incredible is done with a large torso like some of the TMNT villains or Axle from Nexo Knights.

    Also I suspect Disney were behind Helen Parr being in the "Mrs Incredible" costume rather than the Elastigirl outfit as all the toys on the shelves seem to use the red costume established in the first film.

    For an example of a minifigure really not working for a Pixar Character look up the in game version of BingBong from Inside Out! Terrifyingly bad.

    I don't have The Incredibles game yet as I always wait to buy the Lego games until they are discounted - also gives time for TT Games to fix (most of) the bugs. But had to look up Bing Bong and @Shib is right that it's terribad:



    Sorry everybody if this will now haunt you in your nightmares!

    They should have just taken this one from Lego Ideas:



    Not perfect, but at least not nightmare fuel.

    I like the use of the plate/dish piece for the ears!

    Overall though, as with most of the Brickheadz, just not all that impressed.

    I'm going full-on conspiracy theorist again, with my prediction that Stitch will get approved from the Ideas review to be announced later today.

    The original Lilo & Stitch film was released in the UK on **4 October** 2002 (as tweeted by Disney UK today)... Coincidence??
    Also seen so much Stitch merch around the last few months, he is incredibly popular, and I believe a live action film was reported just yesterday.
    And I reckon they'll include a new version of the CMF with the model. (Elvis Stitch? With Lilo??)

    Maybe I just live in Fantasyland....

    What I really want is more CMFs but any Disney Lego = fine by me.

    It seems very likely that Stitch will get approved. Unless there are bigger plans already in place for more Stitch based sets to coincide with the film.

    However, an Ideas set now could also be a good teaser to remind people of Stitch ahead of the new film.

    Wall-E was approved - and there was no 'new' promotion related to that franchise.
  • SMCSMC UKMember Posts: 1,802
    I am leaning towards stitch not passing but as we only have a hour to wait I won't waste any time writing why but if it does pass I will be buying one.
  • SMCSMC UKMember Posts: 1,802
    Although @LostInTranslation has me second guessing with the date conspiracy.

    I think the problem with stitch is that you could have made a number of Disney characters in the same way and if it has passed you would have seen a number identical projects for other characters. I know its very different but you also have brickheadz which are brick built and could include stitch. I think Wall-E just fitted better being a (machine) box on wheels with compartments that opened. Also I think steamboat willie has a good chance as its celebrates Disney as a brand and is unique so maybe they were thinking ahead and didn't want two Disney idea sets to add to tron if its still around. At least this is something people can make themselves so its not the biggest lost, although I do love stitch.

    I'm hoping the creator for stitch just posts or sells the instructions.

    Or maybe LEGO already has one in the works?

    The custom will still probably be better and potentially cheaper :)

    New Princess on the block.... Tiana!!

    Could do with more new characters but at least we're getting there.

    And before I forget, seems like Eurobricks is abound with rumours of a second Disney CMF series in April/May. I really really hope that's true.

    According to Eurobricks and leaks on Instagram there is also a larger Palace set #41161 with Aladdin and Jasmine minidolls too. 
  • jnscoelhojnscoelho PortugalMember Posts: 461
    Yeah, #41161 is the only Disney set that satisfies me... All the other are disappointing. Especially the one with Tiana, they mixed leftovers with a new princess that many will want just to sell out excess pieces...

    I have seen a leaked image of an Aladdin minidolls so that makes sense.

    I've seen the front and back images of #41161. It's a cute set.

  • FauchFauch FranceMember Posts: 2,384
    surprised to see studs inside technic holes in 41159. this technic is only legal if you use a single point of connection I think, but kids won't know that, so they may try to reproduce it and get their pieces stuck.

    Seems rather expensive though. What do others think about this price?

    21317 Steamboat Willie, 751 pieces
    US $89.99, CA $119.99, DE/FR €89.99, UK £79.99, DK 749DKK, AU $129.99

    Flintstones, £55 for 748 pieces including 4 minifigures.

    Steamboat Willie, £80 for 751 pieces including 2 minifigures.

    That's almost a 50% increase in price per part, with less minifigures too.

    LEGO and Disney clearly think Disney fans are there to be fleeced.

    And I bet you the set will be out of stock for a while...
    At that price, I'm sure I'm not buying it.
  • pxchrispxchris Oregon, USAMember Posts: 669
    I'm actually very pleased with the look of the final model. But, I will almost certainly be passing this one at that price. It really doesn't look like a $90 set!

    I was looking forward to the 156 piece set the designer submitted. The 751 piece final product looks great, but it is a far cry from "The model designed to be tiny, easy to build and playable.", as described by the designer. It seems like the Lego Ideas crew is not paying much attention to the winning entries, and are making their own MOCs that bear a vague resemblance to the sets people supported.

    Don't forget that they have a lot of data we don't have access to. Every one of the 10,000 people that voted for the set gave an idea of how many pieces they'd expect the set to contain and how much they'd expect to pay. Those results could have indicated that more people wanted a larger set than the actual submission.

    only the system dont ask for that info anymore......
    i backed 3 set 2 weeks ago and did not get the old promt for that info.

    also, well over priced. we was all wating for a 200 at most piece set for about £20.
    not a £80 whatver this is....

    There was a 582 piece Steamboat Willie submitted that only got 193 supporters, and the released set looks more like that one than the one that got approved.

    As always, though - Lego have more information than we do. There's a reason they did the set this way, beyond just "the designed liked doing it that way". There are a hundred reasons why the larger Steamboat Willie ideas set didn't get anywhere near as many votes that aren't related to "people don't want a big set".

    I think it looks great, and I think it's overpriced. But I still think they know what they're doing.

    I am excited for the Jasmine and Jafar and the Nightmare Before Xmas pair but are you kidding with the black and white Minnie and Mickey?!? What is the point of doing those twice? It makes the Ideas set so much less special plus it is just boring.

    Agree that the Mickey & Minnie are an odd decision given the ideas set. Edna seems a little odd too given the recent polybag, although the CMF one does look a little better IMO
