I wish they'd include some of those trees, lol. I can always use more scenery. I like the figs, but the designs are pretty simplistic, although I still like that little cart.

What do you want to bet that when the Balrog comes out, it's all Bionicle / Hero Factory style.

This line is kind of strange. It's very reminiscent of the 80s and 90s castle, but with a few newer pieces thrown in (patterned bricks, cheese slopes). I kind of like it, but it seems like a weird decision to take a step back in terms of appearance. I guess they're trying to separate it from the LotR line by making it look more "Lego-ish".

On another note, I thought we'd have to wait a lot longer to get armour for the new horses. Glad to see I was wrong. It does look a bit Playmobil-ish, though. Also, pearl gold claymore.

Also, why would you not link to the new Galaxy Squad stuff?

Well, keep in mind that the aliens seem to have biomechanical vehicles. Have you ever seen an ant, or a daddy long legs?

Makes sense to me. As for the actual Lego version, It looks like it's on wheels, and that the legs move when you roll it. I actually prefer that, because switching that function out for posable legs on a creature that scuttles that low to the ground would be a waste.

I keep thinking of these insectoids as allies of the pwnies. In any case, I'll probably keep buying Galaxy Squad.

I really like the look of the new castle sets and the Galaxy Squad stuff looks pretty cool, but I'm not sure that I've seen a bug thing that has impressed me yet.

Man, Lego does everything they can to kill my wallet...

Everything about that castle line looks fantastic. I'll definitely be getting some; I only have two crown knights and now I can have a great force of them. Better start making more shelves.

How about the old Insectioid line? I wonder how closely related the two are.

So far, only the Lone Ranger stuff has really caught my eye. I can mix it up with the Pharaohs Quest and Indiana Jones stuff (yeah, I have already made myself a heretic by mixing peach and yellow without giving it a second thought).

Hmm...

I do like the looks of the new LOTR Corsair ship - King of the Dead would make a great Wight Lord for an Undead Army, something useful OTHER than more zombies/skeletons/vampires.

I have to see what will happen, but as always, there are more sets I want than my budget can afford. :P Lucky for me, my wife likes Lego, and is okay with me buying more as long as I don't kill the budget. ;)
