New sets announced for third quarter '08

Postby Almighty Benny » Tue Apr 01, 2008 12:24 am

Apparently Lego announced that they've just bought the rights from <a href="http://disney.go.com/disneypictures/narnia/">Disney</A> to produce toys based on the Lion the Witch and the Wardrobe and Prince Caspian movies! Maybe this is where they'll introduce the Lego elves from that other topic we were talking about.

(Keep in mind that these are just prototypes, but they look freaking awesome!)

<a href="http://popefools.ytmnd.com/">Prince Caspian's hideout</A>
<a href="http://popefools.ytmnd.com/">Poseable Azlan</A>
<a href="http://popefools.ytmnd.com/">Telmarines Warship</A>
<a href="http://popefools.ytmnd.com/">Prince Caspian minifig</A>

Wow! Those are awesome!

I try to keep an ear to my contacts inside the company so I can get heads-ups about stuff like this, but I had no idea that these were on the way. Even in the prototypes you can see how much better their construction techniques are getting every year.

I should've figured it out from the fact that Mega Bloks already is making Lion the Wich and the Wardrobe.....

According to Brother-Bricks...

The LEGO Group has announced that the stud is being discontinued. Making the biggest change ever to their iconic “System of Play,” the company said in a private phone call to a select group of fans that the time of the stud is over. They will be releasing a new brick that sticks together with internal magnets.

Bjorn Kjeldsen, head of LEGO’s Magnetic Research Department, listed several reasons for the shift:

First of all, magnets are much more fun. What child hasn’t spent hours attaching and reattaching piles of magnets? They are much easier for small children to use than the current studded brick. Secondly, people equate magnets with fun and style. Not so with studs. Studs are old-fashioned. They are so 20th century. Magnets will take us through the 21st century and beyond! Lastly, there is the engineering issue. What with the recent decision to transfer production from Mexico to Madagascar, we needed a new brick that required less manufacturing precision. These new magnetic bricks fit the bill perfectly.

I guess this gives a whole new meaning to studless creations…


Yes, this is real. Actually, nope, it isn't.

The problem with that oen is it's too over-the-top. Now, this one is much more believable.
