I've added the latest batch of set numbers to the database so the outlook for 2013 is becoming clearer. So, building upon the article I posted a few days ago:
- Galaxy Squad: A new space theme that sounds as if it's been inspired heavily by the excellent 1997 movie Starship Troopers, i.e. space marines fighting 'bugs'. The set names suggest the opponents are some sort of vermin or bugs, don't they.
- Super Heroes: Ten sets known so far, featuring DC and Marvel super heroes, which, if they appear early in the year and their set names are quoted in the retailers' catalogue, they are probably not related to any forthcoming movie.
- Lone Ranger: No details known but the theme has been confirmed.
That being the case, I would say that the Space Marines project on Cuusoo is doomed to failure, and the Modular Western Town may pass review but won't be produced until some time after the Lone Ranger sets have ended.
Commenting has ended on this article.
