Hi there, Count Empire, I do have one question, why do people think Lego stopped producing Batman? it was such a wonderful theme aand I'm sure it also boosted sales for city sets(everyone wants to build gotham).

Cheers.

What do you use to make your own lego molds, like Brickarms or Brickforge

I have a partial answer to your question: Lego ran out of ideas for LBM. I also think that the sales were okay, but not as good as they were expected to be. As for boosting City sets, that's a good point, but, they could've made a special edition Gotham City. Hope this makes sense.

It sorta does make sense, but I believe the problem was the molds, if lego wanted to keep making minifigs they'd have to make new molds so what they did was make digital molds and sell the game so everyone was happy, I just feel that the game opened me more to the Lego Batman audience than ever before and then my dreams were crushed when, in the summer of 2009 I didn't see new sets...

But with "The Dark Knight Rises" in 2 years, we might still be able to see some more batman.

I don't think they will continue Lego Batman when the movie comes out, I think that's the reason itself! I think that LEGO doesn't want to promote such violence and mischief of the new Batman movies, that's why it stopped, because the making of the Dark Knight. They don't want to promote it. So I think Batman is gone, unless they make it for TB&TB, because they have a "team up" with CartoonNetwork, with Ben 10 and TCW. But i wouldn't buy from TB&TB, though. Too childish, didn't like the series at all.

No it would not. The company founder {I seem to forget his name} said "War is not Childs play!". Meaning no war for lego. I know there are starwars and Indiana Jones but there rule is no modern themes based on war. That is also why there were no green bricks for many years. So No, no war themes.

Thanks, both of you, but I already know THAT!. I know that there are model tanks, fighter jets, etc, and that kids do them (That sounds funny Grin ). Also, a lot parents don't really care about violence, or their kids wouldn't play CoD all day. I'm kinda suggesting a history theme here when I mean military, like in terms of having famous war icons, like the USS Enterprise.

The pride of making your own Lego-compatible weapons? Priceless.

Sorry, I couldn't resist. I actually agree with you. Just shell out the money for Brickarms, Will does a great job on them.

I've been wondering myself. I don't think there has ever been a set released like that recently. Except the Castle and Pirate advents a couple years ago. Also to take into consideration that it's a licensed set makes it ever odder. I would think that it'll be available in the US within a month or two.

If you are logged on in the U.S, it says that "This product is not availible in the United States".

Unfortunately this is the first time a star wars set has been released in the UK and not in the US for such a long time. I think they will eventually sell the set in the US though.

Now let's see how many are airline exclusives... yeah

Also, the EU is more divided than the USA(the USA doesn't have state exclusives, the EU has 27 countries with exclusives, what did you expect?!?)

Only three Airline exclusives to be exact. I will admit that through your continents diversity, your country probally only receives a few of those sets.

I'm confused because I think there is a bigger SW fan base in the U.S. than the UK. Also Henri, like JCC said, please do not take it out on us. We didn't do anything to affect which sets were to be U.S. , or UK exclusives.

That is true, but the prices over here are much higher, I pay 20 more dollars than you for almost any star wars set, the BHAG and the T-6 Shuttle are just outrageous, I pay 35 more dollars, maybe that's why they are making it an EU exclusive...
