But I can see my stepson wanting them lol
Toys"R"Us is becoming a disgusting place. I looked at a Canadian Tire flyer and they were advertising 20% off their stock of Starwars sets! Now if a store like Canadian Tire, who only orders small quantities for a limited time of the season, can afford to discount Lego sets AND STILL make a profit... can't a store like TRU, who ordering several 0 digits more Lego, afford to do better? So why has there been year long sales of only 20% off in Canada? Why does TRU decide to mark up certain Lego themes? We all know the answer. It's because people will keep buying Lego from them anyway. Screw the rest of us.
These better come out during the spring in the US, because I seriously can't afford all this January 2013 goodness!!!
70700 reminds me of Atlantis, just that now the bugs have got the vehicles. Very similar colour scheme too. Then again, it is also very similar to AC. They could easily have called this "Alien Conquest 2. Man Fights Back."
I wonder if this will be a new element on box design. I know they have previously had the minifigs on the top of the boxes, but to have them prominently displayed in a corner, it seems like it is another way to really sell the boxes.
Yes, it does have some of the Atlantis/AC look. I will need to see more of the sets, but if the insects come across as more alien than insect, this may be a winning line over here. If they are too insect like, it may be a dud.
Not too enthused about the alien vehicles, but the human ones look like they have some cool play features, and quite swooshable.
Are we assuming this to be a one and done series like AC? It has that feel and look to me. Perhaps its heading more down a related releases route - ADU on earth last year, these guys in space fighting insect aliens now. Perhaps next year similar good guys but fighting a blacktron style enemy. All black with black GP armour or the robot(?) armour above would be awesome.
To me the spaceships (subs in atlantis) are always the best parts and the creature like vehicles pretty rubbish. With a blacktron enemy we could double up on the good and eliminate the bad.
@caperberry i was thinking that... I wonder if they'd click neatly onto the male side hinge brick
I do like the different colours though - harks back nicely to the classic space and futuron days.
