Scooby Doo, Where are you? - general discussion

Recommended Posts

I think part of it is trying to force sets into particular price points, and it is a licensed theme, so definitely some restraints.

That's the same disease LotR suffered from. There are some themes just not fit for small scenes.

When are these being released?

 

September.

 

Oh wait, about one/two months before October 31st. How surprising.

The sets may be small but the content and character is there. The 'monsters' will make nice additions to any Halloween or costume party scene aside from just being cool as is. The Headless Horseman is an immediate no questions asked must have purchase for me. I'm sure his head also has other uses like decoration. I just hope with so many Shaggies each has a different expression. That would be perfect for animation.

I'm definitely digging the minifigs, but I have a special place in my heart for all monsters. ;)

Me too.

As an investor I have to thank TLG for another avenue to introduce AFOL's to the product-line as a whole.

 

As a fan...

 

Man, they are nailing it. As an eighties kid, Scooby Doo basically defined after school and Saturday mornings. My current son- 3-years old- loves the show. Incredible how well TLG is reaching out to so many different generations and demographics.

I hope this will help give a boost to the MF sets...especially the vampire castle.. =)

 

After the initial announcement I was worried, but mostly I think this theme gives a nice overall boost to the MF line. I can't remember where I read it, but I seem to recall that Halloween is the second most popular 'decorating' holiday in US/CAN, and who wouldn't want a large layout?

Halloween is the second grossing holiday in total revenue-- http://www.fashionavecpassion.com/halloween/ (beauty/fashion article but some good stats). So yeah, bring on the spooky LEGO!

The plane looks pretty weak, but overall, I'm excited for these! I expect a bump in MF sales too. These don't compete with MF so much as compliment them (except maybe VC and the mansion).

Ill probably be buying the figures off bl for me, looks like Velma will demand a premium depending on the price of the castle.

This is not my original idea (stole this from Eurobricks), but...wait for it...

 

Who wants to see Scooby-Doo and Batman MOCs?

 

Me!

And Phyllis Diller, and Mama Cass, and Don Knotts, and The Three Stooges.
