Thanks Moedred!

If they fakes, then why the catalog. The perp would have a lot to answer for since there are numerous Pirate and Star Wars sets also included in the catalog.

Well no more than. I'm forking out alot of money for LEGO. I want a bit of a mixed bag. So yeah if I have to pay almost $40 for a TOD car chase then no I wont buy it. Frigin minecart rampage....something. I dont look at it as a blessing that we got a TOD lego. How is that anymore distinctive than the Raiders chase other than the characters?

Lego 2009. Now it is down on that site.

That means that something should not have been posted. Hmmmmm...

How is it more distinctive??

Try the vehicles for one. Not to mention that this is a scene from a movie that so little merchandise has been produced for.

I'm still saying vehicles and nothing else makes for a pretty boring idea. I have alot of the sets. alot of them include a vehicle, but also a nice little building or fort ect ect. Lego could do more with it.

Even a Temple of Doom track with mine cars would be something more than just another vehicle. The Kali Ma Temple would be awesome.

I have two of every Lego set, even the TRU exclusive plane. The Lego line does seem to be selling very well.

How long did it take you to put together the Akator Temple? Im in the process of building the Temple Adventure. Jocks plane was fun to put togther but I'm glad I have a building to construct as well. I like fortresses and caves ect ect. Lego always was money for the secret passage as well. Imagine a Kali Ma temple?!

So far, I have not put them together yet, because we might be moving in a couple of months. One is displayed boxed on my shelves and the other is packed away, so it will remain "case fresh".

Here's what I rigged up with the Jungle Duel, River Chase, and Jungle Cutter sets:


I just had to get the extra green base from TRU, but it makes a good little jungle scene. I got one gripe with the Jungle Cutter thow, you can't fit a Ruskie in the cab, there's not enough clearance. A few bricks should have been included to raise the roof a little.

I like this. I actually have a lego table. My father built it for me when I was little. It has 6 of the green tiles together on a nice little table. Good way to have a whole set sit together. Looks cool Goonie.

The fact that it's been removed really points to either 'it's been a fake all along' (as some of the Pirates fans are pointing out issues with their 'leaks') or that this stuff has already been killed, or changed beyond recognition.

The product-code numbers, for instance, seem to have already used by the Lego Space line... :S

I thought the only only rumors of a line being killed, were the Hasbro figures. The Lego line is doing very very well and almost always sold out in the Chicago area.

I'm hoping the FW will be released. If the Hasbro one won't come out ( ), then at least release this one!

If these were all a fake, which I really really doubt, then this is the most elaborate fake leak we've ever seen.

I agree. Why the catalog and why fake so many different other lines?

Nice. Considering my love for LEGOs, I am amazing bad at buiding from my own imagination and could never do that.

OKOKOK have a REAL look at that flying wing picture. It has a frigin swastika on the wing! Why would lego ever release a picture with one of their sets having such a symbol? Especially since the line is aimed towards kids. Now I really wonder if this is nothing more than a fun photoshop project.

My flying wing is on Ebay right now (I'm suffering a severe room shortage with everything, sadly). It's not super-detailed (pictures in the lego customs thread), but I think it came out better than the one shown in the 'catalog'.

Kev's is kinda cool, but I actually think it's a little too 'busy' in the design. It tries too hard to be 'real', as it were, rather than being a LEGO flying wing. But that's just me.

I will have to check out your version of the wing. My LAST CRUSADE MK VII tank came out better than my wing.....

http://www.brickshelf.com/cgi-bin/gallery.cgi?i=3311810

But I still like my wing. The only thing I would change would be the aft turret and add some finishing tiles. Funny you say mine tries to be too "real"...most of the wings I see look unfinished, or not like the movie wing at all. Straight wings on the model don't look right in my opinion. Watch the movie again...it's the wings on this plane that make it special!
