I'm sure they can't call it "creature from the black lagoon" but I found images of something similar!

Oooo, that looks like an awesome head. Is that supposed to be in the Monster Hunters as well?

Y'know, it would be amazing to have a minifig with all crazy parts.

I hope they'll include regular arms and legs and maybe some robot arms/legs to add as one may wish. I can see them being fun to use for customization but I also love the 1920s clothes unaltered. I'm excited about this theme maybe more than any other system themes in a long time.

Well it looks like the only one with a robot arm is the Lumberjack, so unless you consider plaid clothing from the 20s...

Plus, you could always try to force the arms out of two similar figures and swap them.

In regards to the new vids:

6. Ninjago mega-dragon and Jabba's palace (and desert skiff) are MUST-HAVES
7. Monster Hunters castle and new elements are SWEET
8. Ghost Train screams WH40K Necron units
9. Moonstones undoubtedly based on Atlantis keyes
10. Samurai Mech is MUCH COOLER than I originally thought (MW4:Mercs Victor?)
11. Giant White Ninja-Tank thing is also a must buy
12. My wallet is doomed.

Well it's settled. I will not go to university, work three jobs and live off of McDonald's and Mr. Noodles.

A summary of those videos:
Ooooh! Oooooooh! Ooooooh!



I really like the look of all of these sets. The Vampire Castle looks really amazing! And finally ghosts are coming back! I'm going to start saving now and keep my eyes peeled for sales and deals going on because I want everything!

Alright, so I now know I'm getting Jabba's Palace and the Desert Skiff. And the Ninjago dragon and tank are extremely tempting. Also that monster hunters car is great. Ghost train looks nice, too. On second though, I'm with Silva on this one.

You're saying this like you've never attempted to do so before.

My girlfriend doesn't let me do it to her figs! Or switch out legs from hips! She thinks it's gonna break them or something.

Meanwhile all of the monster hunter sets look totally fucking awesome. That's the gnarliest spike pit I've ever seen in a LEGO set!

The mega-dragon could make an excellent skeletal chimera wyrm with a few tweaks. Want.
