It's too bad that each boom! has come at the cost of a regular systems line, i.e;, Pirates and Kingdoms/Castle, two excellent lines in their own right.
Finally, as someone else mentioned. I wonder what they will use for The Rings? Some kind of bracelets? The minifigs have no fingers, which seems to be the one issue to me when considering a storyline focused on Rings of Power.EDIT: Or maybe they will try to avoid actually dealing with a ring at all and just have a print of it on Frodo's necklace (and just say it is in Bilbo's pocket)!
2012 licensed themes then seem to be:Star WarsSuperheroesLord of the Rings/HobbitCars (anything past the early wave?)seems about right, there were 4 in 2011 as well:Star WarsPirates of the CaribbeanCarsHarry Potter
Unlike Star Wars or even Ninjago, there is no cartoon tied to them that immerses kids in them every week. !-Dan
To be honest, I'm really not bothered about LOTR. I'm just sad that there's no more HP....
I don't think Kingdoms is on the way out though, as there hasn't been a January Castle release ever in my memory. I'm thinking we'll get more Kingdoms info at the Toy Fairs with the summer sets.
Am I the only one not interested in LOTR?
