    Looking at the menu, I’d be a bit concerned which way the products were being cycled!

    I'm just enjoying the fact the town is called 'Newbury', like it's the most generic placename they could imagine (it IS rather a genetic town to be fair, for me the best thing about it is they bypassed it!). 
    I’m sure you me meant the bypass was the best thing to happen to Newbury as now it’s a pretty town in rural West Berkshire and one of the most important places for the development of technology and the digital economy and one of the Sunday Times top 10 places to move too in 2018. I’m sure that’s what you really meant 😉

    and now its also been immortalised by Lego!

    New (for me) observations:
    • The bosses in each level of the app are called "Boosses", which is such an insanely cheesy pun. I love it!
    • There's also… hmm… a disc launcher inside the haunted porta-potty that shoots a… reddish-brown round tile… o____o
    • I've been wanting to see a minifigure like the sea captain with the gaudy yellow hat and rain slicker for years now, and the tentacle piece he has for when he gets possessed is pretty spiffy!
    • I love the ghost dog!!! One of the boxes shows its name as Spencer.
    • Other supporting character names are El Fuego (the janitor/maintenance worker in green) and J.B. (the scientist).
    • One of the kids in the school has Rocket Racer logo on her jacket, and as I saw someone else call out on Twitter, a kid in the diner has a Pepper Roni T-shirt from LEGO Island. Neat references!

    Take a look at Lego's Instagram story. There's a Q&A plus a few more images and short videos on the sets. Not sure if anyone's mentioned this yet, but it's set for release "late summer," so about August.
    I'm a little disappointed by the diner - it's smaller and blander than I expected. However, it looks fun to build and if the game turns out to be interesting, an excellent example of a level.
    The train also appeared to be a bit dull but the pictures @Aanchir linked to prove me wrong. I'm pleased to see it can run on track as well.
    Overall, I'm thinking the lab will be an instant purchase for me, followed by the boat, and if those turn out to be as fantastic as they appear, I'll keep going...

    I like that there is a new theme.

    I like that theme.

    The sets range from good to great. However, all the sets in the theme are $450 and that's too much. And it looks like you get the same two kids over and over so there is little reason to get multiple sets so I'll probably limit myself to only a few sets and no more than $100 total. The best looking sets are the cheapest three and they total $80.

    Anyone have any idea what colour the trans-yellowish heads are? They look a bit too neon for actual trans-yellow, but there's no other colour which is close.
  • The_RancorThe_Rancor Dorset, UKMember Posts: 1,262
    I thought the heads were trans neon green. Possibly the same green as the more recent lightsaber blades? But otherwise a 'zombie' colour.

    I like facades builds, you can easily see the inside. like arkham asylum (10937 I think?) is a great example.
    I think @Aanchir's right. I remember playing an Xbox game years ago that had the same conceit - you played a photographer investigating a haunted house, and you could only see the ghosts through your camera...

    maybe project zero / fatal frame?
    That's the one! :)

    I think the boat is going to be a must-buy, to go with the Fishing Store. I'm a bit less keen on the High School now I've seen how similar a build it is to the Temple of the Ultimate Ultimate Weapon, but I do like how they well they used the space to show all the obvious school settings.

    At first I wasn't as invested as I was with Chima and Nexo, but the more I see of this the more I'm impressed with the ideas behind this Theme. Also that Train gives me serious Time Twister vibes and I'm loving it. Not sure if I'll buy it yet, but I'm definitely aiming to get the school, diner and boat sets.

    They're Transparent Fluorescent Green (Trans-Neon Green), but with some Spring Yellowish Green (Yellowish Green) printing over top of it, same as the ghosts from the 2015 Ninjago sets.

    One thing Ill say about this theme which Im sure even the big fans will agree is that Hidden Side lacks a 'WOW' factor.

    Yes, the builds are very good overall, yes they will go great in a city setting, yes theres cool minifigures but I do think it will become another Ultra Agents like theme that dies after a couple of years and is primarily forgotten.

    In saying that, naturally it will be remembered for at least a while after its ended because it is a different idea and lego fans seem to love spooky themes.
  • BrickchapBrickchap AustraliaMember Posts: 287
    An interesting thing I just noticed (probably not the only one) The fishing boat has the same prawn logo as the diner and the possessed diner cook and the fisherman have the same face (still waiting to see the diner cook, waitress and fisherman's regular faces...) so they are probably connected.

    I really wish the locations were made spooky by the possessed minifigs and not the buildings. Like the 'possessed' prawn sign just detracts from the model. And this stupid app business is annoying in regards to the wasted pieces necessary in every set to have the changing coloured tiles.

    The school is a good build but again, the emphasis on the Monster House idea ruins it and since its such a large build it would take a lot of pieces (and money) to make it into at least a closed 'dolls house' building.

    Plus its too American for my liking. Come to think of it, why does everything Lego nowdays have to be Americanised? Whats wrong with a more generic spooky theme that will appeal to everyone?

    I see what you mean about it lacking a "wow" factor despite its unique concept - the builds are generally small, open and dull in colour. However, I think their drabness contributes to the small-town-horror theme well. I don't think it's fair to compare this to Ultra Agents, which was essentially a combination of Nexo Knights and Agents, lines that were both considered mediocre by the AFOL community but lasted multiple years. This is more Monster Fighters 2.0, a theme that was very well received by AFOLs but only got a single wave.
    The whole point of Hidden Side is for the buildings to become possessed, and I certainly don't think it's an inherently bad concept. If the non-possessed models happen to be really good, that's hardly a bad thing, and if you don't want to pay for the parts that don't contribute to the particular model you want, then your issue lies with Lego's entire business model. Besides, most sources I've seen describe the app positively, and adults aren't its target audience anyway.
    There's no reason for the school to be enclosed in the official set. Lego have always made their playsets open-walled, and most of these sets require many parts to enclose.
    "Americanised"? What exactly about the line is American? I can see the schoolhouse/bus are kind of cliche US style, but Lego weren't exactly about to build a Metro replica...

    My first thought when I looked at the colours and basic design was Winter Village too, though I wasn't sure exactly what. A Santa's Workshop expansion makes a lot of sense. It certainly has a lot more going for it than this years Fire Station, if unintentionally.

    Yeah, the seafood diner and shrimp boat in particular give it a very Louisiana vibe. Which isn't a bad thing—Southern gothic makes for a very spooky sort of setting, and a good fit for a theme like this in my opinion.

    I wouldn't say the theme lacks a wow factor, though—the transformation function of the school alone gets a big "wow" from me! Each of the sets seems to be packed with hidden details even without taking into account the additional playability the app is supposed to bring, and I'm extremely excited to see where the theme could go from here.

    I dont necessary have a problem with the drabness, it wont fit very well in my city, but thats no fault of the set.

    I compared it to Ultra Agents as it has a large emphasis on technology (apps etc.), and appears to be intended to last a couple of years, no more. Plus while many AFOLs like this theme or are curious about it, I do think that overall, especially with the test of time, the consensus will be that it is/was a mediocre theme.

    Ok now about the buildings. Well, even if the main point is for the structures to become possessed, well the actual play features arent that good, such as the school; a couple of claws come out, some eyes and some stickers with teeth. And? It doesnt really do much except bump up the price and waste pieces that could have been used for more interesting 'spooky' features. Plus, if these possessed building features are supposed to go with the app well maybe they will look cool in the app but as a plastic brick toy company Lego's focus should be on what one gets in the tangible Lego product, not what it might be able to do if you hold a phone over it or whatever.

    Going off that, I know that adults arent the target audience, except the funny thing is, I dont know who is. I would guess the main demographic to be around say ages 9 to 12 which is also the rough age group of Strangers Things, monster house, scooby doo, etc. But my point is that that age group will not be interested in these sets. The whole basis of the theme in regards to kids is the app but kids are going to choose to spend their money on better ghost fighting games (eg Luigis mansion) rather then a 'meh' Lego set just to get the characters they want and turn some tiles to go up a level or whatever. Now I personally (for the most part) think these sets are pretty good, but kids wont. Younger kids may go for the big truck and bus, maybe the lab but other then that it wont be that popular.

    There is a huge apathy towards Lego after the age of say, 6 years old from both parents and children alike, especially in my country. Trying to compete with Nintento or Xbox doesnt help with that. And after all, Lego is one of the few things that (until recently) doesnt involve a kid going on a screen for hours. But now Lego appears to be going that way, technology first, actual Lego second. 
    We should also remember that all themes with an app/game focus have failed in the past, or at least barely run for more then 2 waves. 

    Actually, Yoda, a vast majority of sets DO have walls, just on the sides (which is fine) and sometimes part of a roof. Im not expecting them to make a modular out of every building, I just meant from a MOC perspective its going to be a tad more difficult then say, the diner, to make a proper building.

    What about the line is American? Hmmm, lets see, just about everything. As J0rgen said, the school is very obviously Victorian/Colonial American architecture and is very reflective of an American haunted house, rather then a school. The diner, bus and train are also all highly American. Actually, the train is an exact copy of the 2014 City cargo train, surely there are other styles of locomotive they could have done? (such as a Santa Fe Super Chief style since its haunted it would make sense to be older)

    The protagonists are about as American teenagers as one can get and the overall theme is heavily based on these American spooky shows.

    My annoyance is that almost everything Lego does is very heavily American influenced, even the Lego Ninjago movie was somewhat more American then Chinese/Japanese overall. The last two modulars have been specifically American. Now having American sets is fine, Im very happy with the last 2 modulars but take Old Fishing Store for example (I know its Ideas but its still an official set). That was designed by a chap from the Netherlands, based on what he had seen there. Yet the fishing store would very happily fit on an American, British, Continental European or Australian beach. Yet these sets and others are very limited in their location and thus in their broad appeal. Theres no reason why Lego could not have done, for example, a more generic school, or maybe one based more on an English boarding school (far more likely to be haunted) for a change. 


    Yes, southern gothic isnt necessary a bad thing, but as I just said, its very limited to location. Look at Monster Fighters. It was most likely based on the old American B movies, yet could really be anywhere in the world.

    Also, just as an Australian thing, 'shrimp boat' is an American term which triggers us Australians. There called prawns... XD

    I respect the theme having a WOW factor for you, although objectively, one has to admit, overall there really isnt one.

    I highly agree about each set being packed with hidden details, I am not at all arguing that these are bad sets. However, the app will bring no additional playabilty, and, at least I believe, will actually pull kids away from the cool features of the actual sets (and Lego in general) for yet another video game.

    The Southern USA vibe reminds me strongly of Scooby Doo - more specificallly one of my favourite films as a kid Scooby Doo on Zombie Island (I think it was straight to VHS). There was a swamp boat, graveyard, fancy (though not a school) house, maybe a diner briefly and a couple of other vehicles involved.

    The transforming function is actually pretty significant. You flip a few switches and the model goes from mundane schoolhouse to big scary monster. I doubt it'll be the only play feature, either; it's a large set with many rooms and minifigures, not to mention a toilet that shoots out brown 2x2s...
    I don't think the transforming features are "supposed" to go with the app, but rather the app plays on those features. Sure they'll look cool in the app, but because it's an AR app, it won't look much different in real life. I'm sure they've focused on these models as well as any other, and merely adapted the app to suit the playsets.

    The target audience would be the same as any other big bang theme. I'm not sure how the inclusion of a videogame would repel kids that want games any more than sets lacking a connection to games entirely. It's not really fair to compare this to actual console games, since this is a physical product that happens to work with a free game, rather than Dimensions sets which were game expansions that happened to include physical products.
    You could argue that kids would rather spend money on games than any Lego set. Nevertheless, the brick remains the world's favourite toy. Okay, the dreary buildings might not be as popular as bright City cars, but they still satisfy a well-liked genre among kids today.

    I'm from Australia too, and while I have to agree that screens are becoming more and more ingrained in children's lives, I don't see much of a detrimental effect on Lego's popularity. Pretty much every kid I know under 11 or 12 still plays with sets. Perhaps the target age-range is a fair bit smaller than, say, that of City, but Australia isn't exactly Lego's biggest market. The app certainly isn't designed to compete with major game producers like Nintendo and Xbox (in fact, even those two aren't really in competition).

    Yeah, I see what you mean. I guess Lego's major target is the US, and a lot of stuff in the small-town-supernatural-mystery genre is very US-specific. It's alright to have themes around certain styles, like how Ninjago was based on ancient China/Japan and now has a lot of modern Japanese influences. Although TLNM was oddly American.
    Brickchap said:

    I wouldn't say "objectively", but I largely agree with you on this part. The concept is very unique, but the sets at a glance kind of look like they were made by City designers who were having a bit of a gloomy day. Which is the point, of course, but I don't think their first impression is flashy enough for them to immediately jump out at you in comparison to brighter, more colourful lines like Friends. I suppose that's why the box art advertises the app so distinctly and leaves the set image with slightly less space than other themes.

    Some good points and thanks for not just getting triggered like Lyichir.

    I will explain my point on games better; "I'm not sure how the inclusion of a videogame would repel kids that want games any more than sets lacking a connection to games entirely." Fair enough. But I guess my point is that, realistically, there really isnt all that much to attract kids to the sets as lego sets. Like they will sell, but definitely not as well as other themes I dont think. I may be wrong.
    Lego has put huge emphasis on the app part and we know the app part will 'fail' since kids will undoublty choose other games over it. Theoretically, the only people who will buy these will buy it for the set but as I just said, well not very many people are going to do that either.
     
    Now I know that this is not a console game and I do agree it is not entirely fair to compare this to say Nintento, but kids will compare. Do I want to play a unheardof rip- off Lego version of Luigis mansion? Or an FPS ghost hunter game on my Xbox?

    Aussie Aussie Aussie! I wont argue whether apathy towards lego occurs where you live but it certainly does where I do. For example, news reports on Lego expos tend to have a somewhat negative vibe "its a kids toy" (by which they mean very very young kids) and at least in my experience, young parents (say aged 20-40) have that opinion that one should 'grow out of Lego' by at at least 9 years old. This trickles down to the kids themselves.

    "Pretty much every kid I know under 11 or 12 still plays with sets." well theres a problem, shouldnt Lego be able to encompass up to at least 13? (maybe 14) Again, of what I know, they barely accomplish getting a target market above 8 years old. Not that that is the fault of sets (although combining Juniors into their specific themes such as City doesnt help....but ill leave that argument for another time...)

    I know the app isnt designed to compete with gaming brands, I just think that in this technology-obsessed world where toddlers learn to use ipads but dont know what a book is, keeping Lego 100% purely focused on the actual brick is highly important for the System of Play rather then System of Getting Kids on Phones as Quickly as Possible Then Wondering Why they have Trouble Learning and Socialising.

    Im glad you agree about the everything being Yank-ified. LOL Its funny how you say Lego's major target is the US when currently they seem so very focused on China. XD
    But yeah, the US is ONE of their major targets (the uppercase is to remind Lego, not to get angry at you). Like seriously, for a European country we dont actually see very many European things. Come to think of it have we EVER had ANYTHING Danish come from Lego? (apart from Vikings which arent danish specific)

    I am fine with certain styled themes, but as I said it feels like just about everything that isnt Ninjago (asian) is American. While Id never expect anything to have any kind of reflection of Australia, it would be nice to occasionally have something more reflective of Britain or Continental Europe. (or South America, maybe India)

    Also thanks for agreeing about there not being a WOW factor. Ok, take out objectively but the fact still remains, other then personal likes, there isnt anything that stands out really. I dont think of the drab colours when I think of it not having a WOW factor, its just more "O ok, Lego Stranger Things/Gravity Falls etc. That boats nice. Right. what else is on the shelf?"
    As for the part about the app taking up space on the box, well thats my point, if the app is just supposed to complement the set, then the set should be the main focus, otherwise (in my opinion) your basically just selling a video game. And there have been somewhat less colourful sets in the past and they didnt need to half hide the set in those cases.

    It's rabbit that I don't understand how people eat. It's just the most unappetizing meat on the planet. It tastes like, I dunno, a random shoe found abandoned in a derelict cabbage factory that someone decided to grill up. It's just bland and earthy.

    It's rabbit that I don't understand how people eat. It's just the most unappetizing meat on the planet. It tastes like, I dunno, a random shoe found abandoned in a derelict cabbage factory that someone decided to grill up. It's just bland and earthy. 
    You've never had it prepared well then :) 

    There is a restaurant locally that has rabbit when it's in season and it's pretty tasty.

    I can't sleep unless I've had my nightly snow leopard steak and bowl of leatherback sea turtle soup garnished with grated white rhino horn.

    Slow cooked it is wonderful. Almost as good as pheasant. So long as you don't swallow the lead shot.

    In season?  That sounds like a punchline to a silly cartoon.
