Here is another new theme for 2013, which seems to be TLC's official realization of the Space Marine project on Cuusoo.http://www.flickr.co...ton/8201537201/http://www.flickr.co...ton/8202630924/(Note: before anyone asks, these images are 100 percent legitimate. They were taken at a TRU store in Winnipeg, Canada, which means they are available for anyone to buy)

I have slept for so long. My dreams have been dark ones. But now I am awakened. Now the scattered elements of my being are rejoined. Now I am whole. And the Darkness can not stand before me.

Looks awesome. Glad to see some official pictures for this, finally. Unfortunately the CUUSOO Space Marine project is now quite unlikely to be approved...

Well, looks like a great line. I must agree with Chro, above me: Space Marine Project on CUUSOO is now, kind of, fired. :PJust a thing: am I the only one who sees a resemblance between that robot-thing's helmet with one of the helmets of LEGO Universe ( and I don't think I'm wrong if I say Space Marauder's )?

I'm going crazy over that new helmet for the good guys, along with the blue marine (who looks like a cyborg). Not to mention all that other cool stuff.

I'm so hyped for this. However, I think the Space Swarmer is the only one that truly has amazing design. The entire design is compact yet incredibly detailed for a set of it's size. Plus, that dark red is beautiful.Also, you can report your topic and state that you'd like the title changed.

Whoa.. Those are pretty cool. I wasn't particularly interested in this theme, but those sets are starting to change my mind. :P

Nice pieces... Glad to see a more Space-y Space theme (unlike Alien Conquest, which was more earthbound). Reminds me a bit of Insectoids.I'll definitely be asking for some of these VERY soon.

So it appears that each set has it's own "unit", each with it's own robot helper. However, I find it odd that none of these larger sets really hold any interest for me. The only set I would consider purchasing is the Space Swarmer.

My favorite so far from what we've seen is the set next to the green marine in the instructions, with the tank and mech. But all of them look decent.

The trans-purple cocoon things remind me of Tridax pods, actually. Anyone else see that?

Dude these are cool. Really channeling some old school space in there (like how the ships can combine and un-combine). If I have the spare cash for these I might pick one up.

8204803542_6aa98af920_z.jpgI'm hyped for this theme. ^_^Edit: And yes, these pictures are also fine, they're only of sets purchased at a Toys R Us in Canada, and their instructions. Nothing leaked.
And of course, Jamesster contributes the most in this thread, defending his titleas the "Ultimate LEGO Nerd".And I'm glad that the humans don't have just one color scheme for this theme.

This theme looks fantastic. It could leave a legacy among space themes for some time. :)-Gata signoff.png

The Green squad looks awesome, as do the robots. I'm glad that this is the Monster Fighters replacement, as that theme was kinda lame.
Er... it looks to be the Alien Conquest replacement, actually, in terms of general theme. The only correlation with Monster Fighters that I see was the comic in the Lego Club Magazine, in which Lord Vampyre's evil plan (which is still laughable) culminated with the summoning of the bug aliens. I see that less as a story tie-in and more as a forced means of getting a preview out. :lol:

It's like attracting insects to a bright light, is it not? :PC'mon. I can't be the only one who made this connection.

I think he ment as the replacement in the series of six-month themes we've been having lately.As in: World Racers>Pharaoh's Quest>Alien Conquest>Dino>Monster Fighters>Galaxy Squad.Anyway, I like these. They call me back to Insectoids. I'm mostly inerested in the wasp, though.

Rumor has it that this theme may be planned for more than six months.

Man, I really hope so. This theme has so much potential.And besides, I want to see more squads, like perhaps a purple one. ;)

Oh no, you're not the only one. I just thought the overall plan from the Monster Fighters story was kinda silly. They always are, though, so whatever.Actually, come to think of it, this one was actually more terrible than most- permanent night means no sunlight, causing everything to die.Wow.

Keep in mind that the people behind that plan were monsters and most of them were either already dead/undead or somehow supernatural. ;) And besides, that was really just a frame story to provide an excuse for a theme about steampunkish heroes fighting classic movie monsters. Which, for an adult fan, should be plenty enjoyable even if you ignore the story entirely.

I still want Legit steampunk LEGO, though. And overlooking Monster Fighters' story (I still think they should have called it "Monster Hunters"), the sets were actually pretty good.

Yeah, it was a neat idea. As for the plan, that's what I was saying- if he succeeded everything but the undead will die. :lol:

The minifigs certainly look cool, but I already know that my money for LEGO in 2013 will be going to a few last Ninjago sets and Legends of Chima. I probably will get at least a few Galaxy Squad sets though. :)

I like the all-round look of the sets, the alien reminds me of the Space Police sets. However, the human's helmet looks like a monkey, and i subtract kudos points for that....Unless by then apes have taken over the earth, in wich case it will make for some interesting comic dialogue.

LEGO Planet of the Apes!Though now that you mention it, they do look sorta ape-like... mainly bluebot.

Those are robots, not humans. The humans have the same helmets as the second year of Space Police, but in awesome colors. The robots and bugs have special head molds.

Speaking of awesome colors and robots, I wonder if (as I said earlier) there'll be new squads in the second wave (assuming it happens, and I hope so). Purple, maybe azure? I'd suggest a yellow squad but that'd look a bit strange.

So, do we have a release date?
Not yet, as far as I know. They're out in Winnipeg, of course, so depending on location I figure they should be out by the end of the year, easily.
