I think so. But I'm sure it's every time you earn or spend it resets the timer

They also email you when the expiration gets close

There's none of the proper hero outfits (pink Batgirl rather than the classic outfit, for example), no Alfred, and the most C-list of the C-list villains. Seems like they've left all the best minifigs to encourage people to buy the sets :(

They did a similar trick with the Simpsons Minifigs, in the house set they all had stupid expressions, the proper ones were in the blind bags that followed.

Yeah they expire but they do give you plenty of warning, I had a handful of points expire the end of last year but I got a bunch of emails about it so they shouldnt just disappear from your account.

£10 each as well. I know Lego is generally expensive but they're taking the piss a bit.

Seems reasonably priced for the number of pieces compared to other sets to me, also I can't be the only one who thinks they look pretty damn good surely?

I like them. I'll be getting the Beauty and the Beast ones for my niece for her birthday. Her name is (Anna)Belle, so she'll love it.

I can't stand Funko Pops, either. That kind of super-deformed "chibi" style had never really appealed. Maybe they'll do some decent ones later on down the line but we'll see.

I don't think it helps that they've spelled the name with a "Z". That on it's own puts me off :slol:

They look like the custom figures from China

I'm tempted to order the set for investment purposes, but I'm pretty sure most collectors have the same idea and it's not really worth buying to preserve.

I've seen a few of these Star Wars sets in the shops, Buildable Figures or something like that? They just distress me, it's not Lego!

I've got one of them, no matter what you think about it, its a pretty cool thing. It might not be classic Lego, but you do build it.

Also I don't care, I've wanted a large scale Speeder Bike and that seems to fit quite well.

Oh yeah and its unlikely to happen, but this is currently going through Lego Ideas...

...as you can see its real Lego sized for the buildable figure of Rey. I want it.

The buildable figures are an evolution of the Slizers (and then the Bionicles), really. They're not massively traditional but that kind of set has been around for going on 15 years. Some of them are pretty good, but it definitely depends on the subject. General Greivous is great, and the troopers definitely work a lot better than the human characters do. The Rey figure is shocking :dread:

Vader and Stormtrooper are mint...

Agree that any of the human faced ones are pretty terrifying though...
