Some nice new fig parts
I also agree with andhe - I like that Lego gets my kids away from starring at screens. Think I need to see more but I'm not massively excited ... which is a relief, I already have too much on my want list!
I think the range looks fantastic! The augmented reality element does not interest me but I love the individual sets, perhaps even more than Monster Fighters. Hopefully the ghosts will also appear as physical minifigures.
I think it's a positive step forward though, and if it works across all platforms and if it gets kids interested in playing with LEGO and distracts them from their smart phones for ten minutes, then great!
I have big concerns that Lego will cease to support the app in years to come, and future phones will no longer support it, which undoubtedly will happen. But I mind this less if the builds are excellent by themselves. These definitely are.
Tho wouldn't really be newbury without me and @Shib scouting out cheap lego sets!
In fact, I just had an epiphany — I think the reason the heroes carry smartphones is that the ghosts are invisible to the naked eye even to THEM! Thinking about that kind of makes the idea of the ghost figures not existing physically go from "okay" to "brilliant"!
@klinton Mostly what I was referring to was that its not a complete building like the Haunted House was.
maybe project zero / fatal frame?
Yeah, a full building would have been cool, but they do need to keep the price somewhat reasonable ($129 is still a lot) since it's probably geared more towards younger Lego fans. Money was also spent on the app itself.
Lego: “Here’s a completely un-leaked awesome new ghost theme out of nowhere”
Rancor 2 days ago: “WE GOT ONNNNNNNNNE!”
I think someone used more or less the same analogy but this is extremely exciting to me. Hope the app works well but the sets already look really cool and interestingly in their own right. I laugh at how a certain demographic now assumes any given yellow school bus is ‘basically the Fortnite battle bus’.
