    There's already been an image of other WW movie merchandise, on the web showing Ares. Lego are not the first.

    It's possible Hades could be behind things. If I'm not mistaken, Hades & Ares have teamed up a couple of times to tangle with Diana. 

    Sigh...Why come Kratos can get a movie :(

    I HATE I repeat HATE, the stud shooters on the front of the plane. They ruin the look of a otherwise flawless model.

    They actually are representative of the actual machine guns those planes had in WWI. What I am loving is Ares, hope I can make something similiar to him.

    Doesn't look too hard to remove them. Hopefully there's room to mount one or two Brickarms Lewis guns there.

    I think Ares as a villain in the film could be a big help, from the trailers it's looked a little too much like Captain America: The First Avenger. 

    Unfortunately I have zero faith in the DC cinematic universe - despite being more of a DC fan than a Marvel fan in general. There have been too many misfires already. Man of Steel got Superman just so wrong, Suicide Squad was trying too hard to be Guardians of the Galaxy meets Deadpool and frankly I've not wanted to pay more than £3 to see Dawn of Justice so I haven't watched it yet...

    What scares me is that if it does end up lackluster and performs poorly in the box office, there's a very real risk of WB taking entirely the wrong lesson from it and assuming "superhero movies with female title characters don't sell". At present there aren't really any other DC or Marvel movies to serve as an effective counterpoint.

    This set looks neat, and I'm intrigued by the WWI setting, so I have my fingers crossed that this movie could be the exception to the dour offerings in the DC cinematic universe so far. But I'm not totally counting on it.

    I watched the film last night (really enjoyed it) and now I have an urge to buy this set. However, since it's a TRU exclusive, what are the odds of it being discounted soon? And does anyone else find it disappointing that the only set from the film is a store exclusive?

    Just buy it from lego S@H, I don't have a TRU near me so it was the easiest way for me to get it. 
  • Th1nDieselTh1nDiesel UKMember Posts: 129
    That's probably what I'll end up doing, unless I get a TRU voucher, but it just surprises me that Lego would choose to make the only set from the film a store exclusive. I don't understand the logic behind such a decision.

  • SumoLegoSumoLego New YorkMember Posts: 7,841
    The Dr. Strange set was a Target exclusive, and the Batman/Ra'al Al Ghul set was a Wal-Mart exclusive.

    The 'exclusive' distinction is paid by the vendor - so it the impact has two sets of marketing folks driving it.

    Has to be said, film was awesome and highly recommended. Got the set at the glasgow store the other day with the wife with the plan for her to build it after seeing the film. Unfortunatly life has other plans :(
  • LEGO_Dad77LEGO_Dad77 Northeastern CaliforniaMember Posts: 217
    I picked up this AWESOME set a couple weeks ago; didn't care for the stud shooters' placement right behind the prop. Guess you gotta be really desperate to fire upon the enemy if it means crashing your own plane? XD But the plane is otherwise another excellent addition to my LEGO aircraft sub-collection, and the giant Ares minifigure build was so cool! (I never got the Civil War set with Giant Man, so this was a first for me.)

    Having said all that, I saw the pretty great film last night, and was slightly disappointed to find out that the set is not movie-accurate. I know they have a bit of free reign design-wise with everything also existing in the comics, but was looking forward to seeing onscreen representations of specific aspects of the set. Basically they have the minifigures of Diana and Steve correct, and that's it. :/

    Still a great little set - was always going to be an instant purchase for me, but without spoilers I can't say much more. ;)
  • SeanTheCollectorSeanTheCollector BirminghamMember Posts: 456
    ^ I was also disappointed that Aries in the set bears no resemblence to how he appears in the film. The movie is great and I recommend people see it but I will probably give the set a pass unless i see it heavily discounted at some point. I suspect LEGO had scant information available when they designed the set.

    An actual known issue in WWI, but by WWII the issue was mute due to synchronization.
    Interesting stuff, always fascinated me as a kid - my grandad was in the pacific with the navy in WWII, and he had quite a few hairraising stories that he shared - the older us grandchildren became.

    Will certainly be picking this set up at some point.

    You will probably see it at 20% off eventually, as TRU does those discounts rather frequently. However, it may or may not have also gone up by $5 in price by then, so the savings could be minimal.

    I watched the film last night with my family and we all loved it. Diana's upbringing, the fight on the beach, the move to London and then onwards to the true battle was a compelling story, well told and acted, and with emotional beats that matched the physical action on display. It is easily my favourite DC film yet (I know this is not saying much at the moment though!) Without heading into spoiler territory, I think the set does the whole story justice, and I will pick this set up as I buy at least one set from each superhero movie I see. Some I get more than one from, and some I get all of them. I would get more from this movie if they were made available...

    I loved the movie! Brb moving to Themyscira!

    Shame about the set's inaccuracies, but I'd guess it's the usual suspects of it being designed before the film company wanted to release many details, plus piece-count: either of the planes I'm thinking of from the movie seem like they would've taken a good few more bricks to render accurately.

    Having said that, it seems like it has a lot of play value in its own right and each aspect of it is nicely designed in itself - Ares's headgear is particularly cool, and even if I resist the set (think Ideas will get most of my Lego money this year), I'm definitely going to  have to get my hands on that Wonder Woman figure.

    I think the set does OK but the film, ultimately it is one set trying to capture the overall essence of an entire movie, and with the figures and vehicle included kids can layout the opening and end scenes relatively well, and with a bit of imagination some of the interaction between WW and ST in-between, not movie accurate, but certainly movie representative.

    The film itself was very good. The best DCU film by a long way and a very enjoyable 'action/comic-book' film in its own right. Good writing and some cracking performances with a strong narrative. Hopefully all DCU films learn from this.

    You know, I think I'm doing the film a disservice if my opinion appears to be nothing more than "It's better than the other rubbish DC put out". It's actually a lot better than that, and better than a fair few Marvel movies as well.

    The set pieces are well staged/filmed/edited/acted, the emotional beats hit home and are believable, the acting is generally good (Chris Pine) to great (Gal Gadot), and the story is intelligible and it's even more impressive when you take into account that they have to do an origin story.

    It's not perfect (there's an uncanny valley effect at one point, but no worse than that one in AoU) and I'm sure repeated viewings will make me see holes in some places (as I do in most films like this TBH) but I'm tempted to see it again at the cinema, and will definitely buy it on Blu-ray.

    Final point: That theme music!

    To me WW is on par with AoU. Really high expectations but ultimately disappointing. Pine and Gadot had good chemistry, majority of dialogue and acting left a lot to be desired, the flow of the story was decent, but man... Ares was awful, and the ending was blah. Looking forward to buying the set though lol

    I finally saw WW, and it's just as terrible and unintelligible as MoS, BvS and SS.  It pains me to say that 'Man of Steel' is the best of the lot.  (The plot of MoS is the simplest, although Superman is a miserable, miserable, insufferable character.  I happen to like the Jor-El/Krypton parts of the movie.  Frankly, an entire movie revolving around Krypton would have been more compelling than the morose and impersonal destruction of parts of Metropolis.)

    Fundamentally, my worry about comic book movies is reconciling the fantastic with 'realism'.  WW just gave up on that altogether.  Not to compare it to Captain America, but doing a period-piece comic book movie is incredibly tough.  Captain America has its faults, but Wonder Woman randomly running across 'No Man's Land' and smashing German lines had me looking for the exit.

    The Wolverine movie did a better job with Logan and Sabretooth traversing recent history via a war montage.

    I was always skeptical that an Avengers series could incorporate Thor and the Cosmic Universe characters without being completely laughable.  But Thor has proven to be a jovial Superman.  (A respectful alien - but not particularly exceptional in a physical sense from his race.)  The Cosmic Universe characters (GotG, Ancient One, etc.) are also just aliens with powers and abilities explained in a scientifically plausible manner.  

    I just can't get past the outmoded 'hidden city' nonsense of Themyscira.  And I'm probably going to detest the Atlanteans as well.  (Although, ironically, Aquaman looks awesome in the Justice League trailers.)  If you're on a hidden island for millenia, it should look more like a technologically advanced MCU Wakanda, than classic Greece.  And someone should have invented bullets.  Arrows are stupid.  (And yes, that applies to Hawkeye.)

    Nonetheless, I digress.  I hate that despite millenia of nothing happening, Captain Kirk washing ashore suddenly reveals Ares as the 'mastermind' perpetuating/instigating WWI.  Ugh.  

    And nobody is going to report a woman deflecting bullets, lassoing people with a day-glow rope, the ability to jump high buildings, and move at the speed of the Six Million Dollar Man?  There is no way she could be an ignored curator at the Louvre.  She'd be a celebrity -- as famous as Captain America or Iron Man.  Ugh.

    And the whole Dr. Poison plotline is Ugh.  Danny Huston's character is Ugh.  The backstory is Ugh.

    I am not looking forward to some LotR-style horse-battle between Atlanteans, Amazons and Parademons.  There's a reason we don't run around prosecuting war with swords.  Ugh.

    On the plus side, if they copy the Batman/Flash relationship from the Iron Man/Spiderman relationship, atleast I'll have a few minutes of something to enjoy.  And I think an entirely different movie with Gal Gadot and Chris Pine would have excellent potential.  Just not this one.

    Jeez, this was a long post.  My apologies!

    (Also, Lexi Alexander directed Punisher: War Zone, so Patty Jenkins was not the first woman to direct a comic book movie.  But she deserves credit for putting a comparably bad, highly profitable DC movie out for public consumption.  Kudos!)

    Maybe Joss Whedon can save the day.  I hope.

    Yes - I like the set itself.  And my guess after coming off of no 'official' Suicide Squad sets, Lego probably would have done better with more than one WW-themed set.

    Or perhaps one/two mini-doll based sets.

    If you like the movie-based version, I would get the Ares set.  Or you could wait until the Justice League sets are announced.  I'm sure she'll be featured.

    I enjoyed wonder woman. I'm not entirely sure what you were looking for as all super hero movies are inherently ridiculous. This one at least had done heart to it as well.

  • SumoLegoSumoLego New YorkMember Posts: 7,841
    Plausibly ridiculous?

    Actually, I completely get your point.  Maybe childish or just lazy is what I'm trying to put my finger on.  I expect it from the Pirates movies, but I don't like it in Star Wars and Superhero movies.  I would like everything to be internally consistent.

    ^ Thanks for the review @SumoLego - obviously I disagree but that's what opinions are like. Just to inject some useful info, and based on your statement about a movie focussing on Krypton, you might wish to keep an eye out for the TV series coming next year: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Krypton_(TV_series) if you want to see more of the planet before it was destroyed...

    Also, I'm not sure it was childish - childlike maybe, but that (IMHO) is because of her sheltered upbringing. Lazy and internally inconsistent writing... I would agree with you there for some of it, but for me the positives outweigh those by such a large margin I don't really notice. Just watch the Everything Wrong With channel on YT and you'll either hate all movies, or more likely accept that most movies have lazy writing in there somewhere, but no-one cares because they're having too much fun!

    Actually, don't watch EWW - it's very cynical.

    SumoLego
  • SumoLegoSumoLego New YorkMember Posts: 7,841
    I was referring to the jumps in the plot, not the WW character.  Important elements of the story are childish and lazy.  

    The WW character is actually one of the internally consistent aspects of the DC Universe.  Much like Thor in the MCU - both are aware of their perhaps naive approach to good and evil, but have convictions that reinforce their actions.

    (More to the point, Captain America was famous in his day - which makes more sense that an extraordinary person would garner much attention.  I have the same problem with Man of Steel - an extremely poignant moment illustrating restrain with Jonathan Kent ultimately is a throw-away scene that Superman repeatedly ignores.  The wanton destruction and indifference to human life in the Metropolis fight is also internally inconsistent with what Superman ought to value.)
