It's a me, Mario

With the announcement that Nintendo and LEGO have partnered up there is an interview conducted by Brothers Brick (an extensive one) that aside from seeking more intel on future Nintendo sets (the designers says they didn't make a partnership for jus one line) to the fact that this design er worked on Dimensions and LEGO is adapting the concept of Toys to Life even further (this coyld mean they are exploring more possibilities) this interview is awesome, please, chime your thoughts:

    One is from a Brickset article the other is a general discussion and this one is discussing an interview from The Brother Brick.

    Here’s a good indicator: if no one ‘likes’ your post but posts that say your thread is redundant is ‘liked’ repeatedly, I would probably just drop the argument and move on.

    If the LEGO group still has the Dimension technology maybe that signals to me that they may be constantly looking how to use things like Galidor and more failed LEGO properties.

    This doesn't use the same tech as Dimensions. The Mario fig has a barcode scanner, not an RFID reader.

    But they mention in the posted interview that the man who worked in the Dimensions line is the same who is working with these sets, they wanted to take the concept of the Toys to Life method further after the fast burn of the line.

    Well, yes, it's not like they fired all of the people who worked on Dimensions. There are still people at Lego who worked on things like Galidor too (understandably, since several of them had been responsible for many more successful and iconic elements like the Lego skeleton or crocodile long before being assigned to the Galidor theme).

    As they mention, they were going with a somewhat inverse approach to this (more life-to-toys than toys-to-life), with the digital elements augmenting the physical play rather than vice-versa. So in a sense this is more informed by the lessons learned from Dimensions' failure than from the specific tech behind the theme.

    Indeed, while we are in that, what things could make it back? Because we all know that while the products may not have been a hit then they can be a hit reworked. It also interests me how many teasers they threw that there are more to come.
