2018 LEGO Batman Movie Sets Revealed!

After much speculation last July on what could be included in the list of LEGO’s 2018 sets including those from the LEGO Batman Movie theme, we now have a pretty good look at the latest TLBM sets that are slated for release in January. Courtesy of The Brothers Brick, this next wave of sets from the LEGO Batman Movie includes a very nice collection of minifigures that most fans are waiting for. Other than the 2nd series of TLBM Collectible Minifigures, these sets have an awesome roster of new minifigs that will complement both Batman’s Rogue List and those from the Justice League. We don’t have a piece count, pricing and official product description just yet, but we’ll sure keep you posted once LEGO officially releases them. For the mean time, let’s enjoy these images.

The Bat-Dune Buggy (70918) 

Minifigures: Batman, Captain Boomerang

The Justice League Anniversary Party (70919)

Minifigures: El Dorado, Green Arrow, Hawkgirl, Superman, Wonder Dog

The Egghead Mech Food Fight (70920)

Minifigures: Batman, Condiment King, Egghead

Harley Quinn Cannonball Attack (70921)

Minifigures: Batgirl, Crazy Quilt, Gentleman Ghost, Harley Quinn

The Bat-Space Shuttle (70923)

Minifigures: Batman, Batman (Firestarter Suit), Batman (Space Suit), Dick Grayson, Reggae Man

For what it looks like, the Bat-Dune Buggy is perhaps the smallest build in this series, with a closer to the film rendition of Captain Boomerang as compared to how we see him in LEGO DC Comics Super Heroes Killer Croc Sewer Smash (76055). The build of the Bat-Dune Buggy is also kind of sleek and will be a good addition to the theme’s other smaller builds such as the Catwoman Catcycle Chase (70902).

It’s nice of LEGO to finally grant what most LEGO DC fans are asking for with the inclusion of a Justice League Anniversary Party set. However, I must admit that the overall build of this set is a bit of underwhelming. I’m glad that we can somehow complete our roster of JL minifigures, but the stage itself is a bit out of proportions as we see in the film – smaller than what I expected. But for all it’s worth, and especially if you’re aiming to collect all known LEGO Justice League minifigures and see all of them hanging around, then the Justice League Party (70919) is a good set to begin with. Too bad there is no Gleek minifigure, to accompany Wonder Dog.

The Egghead Mech Food Fight (70920) will probably be my personal pick. LEGO nailed it with this one, combining both the intimidating features of a battle suit and the wackiness of having fried eggs as your armaments of choice. The build of Egghead’s mech suit is reminiscent of 2007’s LEGO Exo-Force theme were LEGO explored the possibilities of creating high tech mechanical battle suits piloted by battle-ready minifigs. Since it is supposedly a food fight, take it to LEGO to throw in one of the experts in the field (pun intended): Condiment King. It was already teased several times that the dispenser-wielding baddie will be part of an official LEGO set and I’m glad that he finally did. The stud shooter is one of my favorite piece/element in any LEGO set, but I feel that it will be much better for Condiment King if he will be holding a pair of actual dispensers instead. Nevertheless, I love this set and I hope to have my hands on this one once it goes for sale in January.

Those who are looking for Gentleman Ghost will be delighted to know that he is now officially available as a minifig that comes with the Harley Quinn Cannonball Attack (70921). Not only that, but LEGO throws in another new minifigure in the character of Crazy Quilt. I have to say that LEGO did a really nice job in offering a crazy cool collection of baddies in this series.

For what it looks like, this last set in this series is the second TLBM set that offers a sort of bat suit collection, next to the earlier Batcave Break-In (70909) set. The Bat Space Shuttle (70923) not only offers a nice addition to the Dark Knight’s collection of signature vehicles such as a kayak, cart, and a space shuttle (I just couldn’t imagine why Batman will need a space shuttle in his Batcave), but we also have another collection of Batman’s outfits such as the Firestarter, Reggae Man, and the Bat Spacesuit. Know I’ve really lost count on how many LEGO batsuits are there in existence.

The 2018 LEGO Batman Movie sets are expected to hit toy stores in January next year so we can expect to see more official images and product descriptions during the next few weeks.

Chinese Toy Manufacturer Xingbao Launches LEGO Ideas-like Website.

We’ve recently talked about how The LEGO Company has managed to gain a significant security measure for their intellectual property in China, with the awarding of the “well-known trademark” distinction. This meant that they have gained greater leeway in pursuing instances of copyright infringement regarding knockoff products in that country.

They might just be getting their first significant challenge to their well-known trademark status. Earlier this year,  Chinese toy company Xingbao, created a lot of buzz within the LEGO community when it announced its own line of LEGO-imitation sets based on the designs of some prominent international LEGO AFOLs, who willingly sold several their MOCs to be converted into packaged Xingbao model building kits.

It’s bad enough that Xingbao is under the umbrella of Meizi Model, the same Chinese business conglomerate that owns Lepin, another LEGO  copycat manufacturer that LEGO has taken to court over their blatant replicas of their official products.

However, Xingbao has taken the blatant imitation on a whole new level when it created a web page that allows their customers to submit customized MOCs in hope of seeing them become official sets. It’s called Xingbao Ideas and yes, it sounds like LEGO Ideas.

As can be seen from the screenshot above, the Xingbao Ideas website lets the public upload their own Xingbao brick builds in the hope that they garner enough interest and approval from members to convince the company that an official set from the idea is viable for sales.

Some of the submissions come from actual LEGO AFOLs, although the website’s layout and Chinese language make it difficult to determine how well a submitted design is doing towards becoming an official set. The similarities to LEGO Ideas is quite plain to see, however, and time will tell on when the company will take action on this.

Here’s a Sneak Peak at the LEGO Batman Movie CMF Series 2.

So, it has finally come down to this. After months of speculation about Wave 3 of The LEGO Batman Movie sets, it seems that we now have our first, ‘unofficial’ confirmation of TLBM’s Series 2 of Collectible Minifigures. Though we’re still months away before they are supposed to be released in the market, one Reddit user – hiroki1998 – managed to have his hands on the series’ checklist/flyer. Just in case we are not making the brick police (aka LEGO’s legal team) jumping off from their seats again, we will take down this post anytime if the good guys in black suits will politely ask us. Check this out.

The way I see it, this next wave of TLBM collectible minifigs are way better in some aspects compared to the previous one. Where Series 1 capitalized on the many minifig variations of the Dark Knight himself, Series 2 pays homage to the rest of the heroes and villains that Batman has brushed shoulders with in the film. I reckon LEGO has a good pulse among the community when they sense that we are getting too saturated already with so many bat suits. In fact, we only have 2 Batman costumes out of 20 in this latest series. The rest were either iterations of the Bat Family as seen in the movie, or some selected members of the Justice League Party (also portrayed in the film), and some baddies that Joker himself introduced.

Here’s an “unofficial’ list of TLBM CMF Series 2 character names as they appear on the flyer.

  1. Disco Harley
  2. Disco Alfred
  3. Clock King
  4. Hugo Strange
  5. Mer-Bat
  6. Swimming Pool Batman with Dolphin
  7. Vacation Joker
  8. Vacation Robin
  9. Vacation Batgirl
  10. Vacation Alfred
  11. Soccer Mom Bat
  12. Killer Moth
  13. Jayna
  14. Zan
  15. Apache Chief
  16. Jor-El
  17. General Zod
  18. Doctor Phosphorus
  19. Black Canary
  20. Black Vulcan

There are so many minifigures here that I really want, its kind of hard to zero-in on one particular minifig! For starters, I’m sure I’m getting that Clock King, Swimming Pool Batman with Dolphin and Vacation Joker mifigures. What do you think brick fans?

More LEGO Nexo Knights 2018 Reveal – the Twinfector (72002) and Axl’s Rolling Arsenal (72006).

More and more images of LEGO Knights 2018 sets are now making their way online. After the official reveal of the LEGO Nexo Knights Berserker Bomber (72003) from Toys R Us, we now have reports that other Nexo Knights sets have been spotted in the wild, apparently in an unnamed TRU branch. Thanks to Eurobricks forum member Robert8, we now have several box art images of two other Nexo Knights sets, leaving us with only 3 more sets out 6 waiting to be revealed. Please take note that this are not in any way can be considered as leaks, since they are now officially on display for purchase.

Here’s how they look.

Twinfector (72002)191 pieces

Those who are familiar with the Blacktron II theme from the 90s will easily recognize the apparent similarity that the Twinfector has with the classic Space subtheme. In fact not only this set, but even that of the Berserker Bomber and that of the Vyro Glyder from Axl’s Rolling Arsenal. It’s all too familiar trans-neon green on black color scheme brings back nostalgic memories. It further gives credence to the idea that LEGO intends to fuse the classic Space and Castle themes in a combined format with the hopes of making it appealing both to AFOLs and a younger generation of LEGO fans.

If there is anything that excites me about this upcoming wave of Nexo Knights sets, it is perhaps the look and feel of Knighton’s baddies, the Cyberbyters with their mysterious weaponry. It also includes a rather interesting new piece which seems to be the bane of Knighton’s champions – the tech-infected Critters. I’m surely looking forward to see how the rest of the Cyberbyters’ gear will turn out.

Axl’s Rolling Arsenal (72006)604 pieces

This set is the largest set that we have seen yet, coming in at 604 pieces. It is somewhat bulky, considering that it is literally a 4-in-1 vehicle set. According to the description provided in LEGO Life Magazine, the set includes Axl’s Tank, the detachable Jestroyer apparently piloted by Jestro, the Critter Trapper which is stored inside Axl’s tank, and the Vyro Glyder. Personally, I do not find Axl’s Rolling Arsenal really that appealing due to its yellow and gray colors, but the number of vehicles that goes with the set is a good deal in itself. Also, this is the first time that we see Jestro siding with the heroes of Knighton, which also somehow reflected in his more ‘knightly’, minifigure form.

If LEGO plans to release the Berserker Bomber (72003) on November 25 as announced in the December Store Calendar, then it is not a long shot to consider that we will be seeing the rest of these sets anytime next week.

  • Lance’s Hiver Jouster (72001)
  • Tech WiZard (72004)
  • X-bow (72005)

Are you excited about these latest LEGO Nexo Knights set? I’m definitely looking forward to see the rest of the sets, especially those Cyberbyter mech and ships. We’ll keep you posted as soon as we have more info within the next few days, so be sure to hit that Subscribe button down below, and stay tuned here on the Brick Show!

5 LEGO Sets Named as Finalists for 2018’s Toy of the Year Awards.

It has been customary for the Toy Industry Association Inc. to recognize certain toy manufacturers for their outstanding contribution to the toy industry, and LEGO is one of the industry leaders that have a legacy of being recognized time and again as a Toy of the Year (TOTY) awardee. Last year, we saw LEGO bagging not just one, but two awards with the beautiful and mechanically impressive LEGO Friends and Amusement Park Roller Coaster (41130) earning the title of Construction Toy of the Year Award, while the grand LEGO Disney Castle (71040) received the Specialty Toy of the Year.

As it seems, it looks like LEGO has earned a greater chance of bagging the same title again. Earlier this week, online voting for this year’s TOTY has officially begun, and LEGO once more dominated the nominees’ list with five sets under various categories. Nominated for Collectible of the Year, we have the LEGO Batman Movie Collectible Minifigures (71017). For Construction Toy of the Year it is everybody’s favorite droid in brick form, LEGO Star Wars BB-8 (75187) and Captain Salazar’s dreaded ghost ship, the LEGO Pirates of the Caribbean Silent Mary (71042) that has made it to the cut of being qualified as nominees. The still elusive, and hard-to-find, LEGO Star Wars UCS Millennium Falcon (75192) also made it as a nominee for Specialty Toy of the Year, and the LEGO Boost Creative Toolbox (17101) was named as a candidate for Tech Toy of the Year.

2018 TOTY Finalists: Tech Toy of the Year

LEGO Boost Creative Toolbox (17101)

 

It should be noted that a LEGO-compatible product also made it to the roster of TOTY finalists with the Mayka Toy Block Tape by Zulu. The concept behind a LEGO-tape is relatively new and has recently caught the fancy of builders both young and old.

The voting process officially began last November 3, and will end on January 5, 2018. The voting will include not just Association members, retailers, and journalists, but also the consumers. The winners will be announced in a formal presentation ceremony on February 16, 2018. You may refer to this link for the complete set of guidelines on how the Toy of the Year finalists were selected. Consumer voting is on-going, and if you wish to show your support for these LEGO sets, then head over to the voting page for the Toy of the Year Awards.

LEGO Nexo Knights Berserker Bomber (72003) Official Images Now Up!

Fans of the LEGO Nexo Knights theme are in for an early treat. We already know that LEGO has slated 6 sets to debut anytime soon, as part of the theme’s Season 5 offering, 2 of which were revealed already – first with Axl’s Rolling Arsenal (72006) featured in an issue of LEGO Life Magazine, and the Berserker Bomber (72003) on the page of the December LEGO Store Calendar.

This time around, Toys R Us has officially released our initial set of official images of 2018’s first LEGO Nexo Knights set, the Berserker Bomber (72003). This set comes in at 369 pieces and is expected to retail for $29.99. Check out the images below, together with its product description.

Prepare for high-flying action with the Berserker Bomber, featuring a detachable winged eye, dual 6-stud tech infection shooters and movable wings, plus a detachable Vyro Suit for the MechaByter. Attach the jet pack to Macy and send Berserker flying back to Monstrox! This popular kids toy includes 2 minifigures, a MechaByter figure and 2 scannable shields.

  • Includes 2 minifigures: Macy and Berserker, plus a MechaByter figure.
  • Weapons include Macy’s Mace, Berserker’s cleaver and the MechaByter’s spear.
  • Place the MechaByter in the Vyro Suit, attach it to the base of the Berserker Bomber, and fly into battle.
  • Scan shields for the NEXO Power Orbital Strike and Merlok Power The Mace of Merlok, and power up in the LEGO(R) Nexo Knights(TM) game!.
  • Berserker Bomber measures over 3 inch (8 centimeter) high, 9 inch (24 centimeter) long and 8 inch (22 centimeter) wide.

The heroes of Knighton are up against a new foe in the form of a computer-like virus. As it seems, their newest enemy also has the tech to match the heroes’ arsenals, and this particular Berserker Bomber is up to the task. The ship’s design is indicative of the level of tech that this latest enemy has under its belt, with the Berserker Bomber having a design that will put a smile on Batman’s face.

The Berserker Bomber (72003) is slated to be available at LEGO stores on November 25 onwards, so we can expect to see the remaining LEGO Nexo Knights sets from this wave any time soon. Stay tuned here at the Brick Show for more LEGO news and updates.

Registration Now Open for Tour Dates of LEGO Inside Tour 2018.

When a company has such a rich and vibrant history behind it, they can certainly put that to good use by inviting their loyal fans and followers to tour that history with them.

That’s pretty much the main deal with The LEGO Company and their LEGO Inside Tour, a wondrous excursion that the company describes as a once-in-a-lifetime experience. They’ve got several tour schedules set up for next year, and registration is open.

Yes, there’s already a  LEGO Live event happening in New York in February next year, but for longtime and dedicated LEGO fans with some money saved up, the LEGO Inside Tour 2018 could stand to be another pinnacle of their total lifetime experience with LEGO and their products.

 

Throughout the following year, The LEGO Group will be guiding five groups of about 80 or so attendees at a time through some of the most memorable locations in the company’s long history as one of the world’s major toy brands.

It all takes place in LEGO’s home, the town of Billund in Denmark, and will include tours of the house of LEGO founder Ole Kirk Kristiansen, exhibits of original 1930s LEGO sets and models, and an excursion through a modern factory with chances to meet personally meet LEGO personnel and set designers. Each tour session lasts 3 days, so groups will be staying at Billund’s Hotel LEGOLAND in between company visits.

At the end of the tour, participants will receive an exclusively numbered set produced specifically as a gift for the LEGO Inside Tour, and in close collaboration with Kjeld Kirk Kristiansen. This year, tour participants received the LEGO House Tree of Creativity (4000024), a shout-out to the grandiosity of the actual  15-meter, brick-built Tree of Creativity nestled right in the middle of LEGO Square.

2017’s LEGO Inside Tour Exclusive Gift Set – The Tree Of Creativity (4000024)

Here are the five LEGO Inside Tour schedules throughout next year, for your reference:

  • May 23-25
  • May 30-June 1
  • June 13-15
  • September 12-14
  • September 19-21

Note however, that the registration period to join one of these tour groups is really short. It starts November 6 2017 at 10 am until Friday November 10 2017 at 10 am. All dates and times are at Continental Europe Time.

Do note that participants will need to arrange their own travel to Billund, as the LEGO Inside Tour only kicks off from the starting point at Hotel LEGOLAND, not far from the town’s international airport. Visit LEGO.com for more information, and then sign up for registration here.

Will Fox Finally Give In to Disney?

Recent insider news cited by CNBC hints of the possibility of a merger, or acquisition of 21st Century Fox by Walt Disney Co. According to the report, though some sources say that the media giants are currently not talking at this very moment, previous discussions about the acquisition of the former has been happening under tight secrecy. The talks have been said to have taken place during the past few weeks, with no clear indication that will reach a deal.

However, the same sources have clarified that the buyout will not involve the entire assets of Fox, but only ‘portions’ of it. It is not clear as of the moment what these portions are but one thing is certain: if Disney has set its eyes on Fox, then that means it is primarily interested only those parts of Fox that will add value to its already existing production assets. As CNBC notes,

“For Disney, the opportunity to take control of another movie studio and significant TV production assets as it readies a direct-to-consumer entertainment streaming offering is attractive as is Fox’s significant exposure to international markets, such as the U.K., Germany and Italy — both through its networks and 39 percent ownership of Sky. Disney recently announced it will pull all of its movies from the Netflix platform and will establish two direct-to-consumer offerings: one for sports and one including its key franchises such as “Star Wars” and Marvel.”

Undoubtedly, Disney’s acquisition of prime titles such as Star Wars and Marvel has proven very lucrative to say the least. With the MCU and Star Wars seeing more films in the next 3 to 5 years, the company needs to expand its offerings beyond what the current franchises offer. Needless to say, a deal that could see film rights for iconic titles such as that of the X-Men and Fantastic Four transferred to Disney, will positively boost the roster and reach of Marvel’s Cinematic Universe.

Spider-Man: Daily Bugle Showdown (76005)

Now the big question remains, especially on this side of LEGO Marvel Universe: will we eventually see the X-Men and Fantastic Four superhero teams in their actual LEGO forms? Will these dream sets finally become a reality for thousands of fans of the LEGO Marvel Superheroes theme? The prospect of seeing these sets centered around the X-Men timeline is something to look forward to. True enough, we have a couple of LEGO Marvel sets that are not based on the current MCU timeline, such as Spider-Man: Daily Bugle Showdown (76005), Wolverine’s Chopper Showdown (6866), and X-Men VS The Sentinel (76022) that features unique minifigures characters tied with the X-Men and Fantastic Four, i.e. Dr. Doom, Wolverine, Cyclops and Storm. But having Disney buying the cinematic rights for all of them, only means that LEGO may likewise have more room to expand its LEGO Marvel Superheroes theme.

Wolverine’s Chopper Showdown (6866)

Then again, bear in mind that these are just speculations that will be left hanging until we see clearly the direction that these media giants will take in the very near future. So what do you think brick fans, are you looking forward to see more LEGO X-Men sets? How about the Silver Surfer, or the Fantastic Four? Do you think this buyout of Fox by Disney will eventually happen? Share what you think in the comments below.

Thanks to Screen Rant for the heads up.

LEGO Ideas Women of NASA (21312) Tagged as Best-Selling Toy By Amazon.

If you’ve been keeping up with LEGO set news, then you know that the newest set in the Ideas lineup, featuring Women of NASA, was released at the beginning of this month. You also know that it depicts two real-life female NASA astronauts, an astronomer and a software engineer, along with representations of their work, from program manuals to scale models of the Hubble Space Telescope and the space shuttle.

What is only known just now is that this LEGO Ideas set, conceived as an inspiration for girls to become interested in STEM careers, is now the newest best-selling toy in just 24 hours as cited by CNN.

 

Proof of the Women of NASA set’s popularity was easily found at the LEGO Store in Manhattan’s Flatiron District, where Maia Weinstock, MIT News science writer and major LEGO fan-girl, was present to autograph boxes of Ideas set 21312 as they were sold in October 28.

LEGO Ideas fan designer Maia Weinstock at the Flatiron District LEGO Store during the launch of the LEGO Ideas Women of NASA (21312).

Everybody, from parents wanting Women of NASA for their daughters, to older women wishing that the set existed during their childhoods, were extremely appreciative of Weinstock’s brainchild and told her so. Lines for the Flatiron LEGO Store actually went round the block, and customers worried that the stock for 21312 would run out before they could reach the counter.

Social media was also very abuzz at the selling power of Women of NASA, as well as very appreciative of this theme to empower and inspire women’s interest in STEM fields. Customers proudly posted their packages as they got them, and science agencies like the Smithsonian were full of praise.

At only $24.99, LEGO Ideas 21312 is the number one toy on Amazon right now; they are also sold out over there. As of this posting, Women of NASA is still available at the LEGO Store website, but who knows how that might last. LEGO sure hit the jackpot with it.

 

Last LEGO Store Calendar of the Year Now Available!

UPDATE: The official December LEGO Store Calendar is now up on LEGO’s servers. I’ve updated the images below to include those that are actually found on the calendar.

LEGO caps off the year with a string of promotionals that you can find in the LEGO December Store Calendar. This year’s last LEGO Store Calendar offers a mix of freebies coming from the LEGO Ninjago, Creator and Star Wars themes. Plus, it gives us an early access to some of LEGO’s 2018 sets. Check the images below, or you can download the entire calendar in PDF format right here

December 1 to 7: Free Master Wu Keychain (5004915) with a purchase of $35 or more of any LEGO products.

As we previously reported, the Master Wu Keychain is part of the series of freebies tied-in with the LEGO Ninjago Movie, earlier announced last July. Frankly speaking, there not much of a difference between this keychain counterpart of Master Wu as compared to those included in three TLNM sets: Master Falls (70608), Green Ninja Mech Dragon (70612), and Destiny’s Bounty (70618) so I expect that this will not be highly sought out for as compared to the LEGO Ninjago Movie Kendo Lloyd (30608) polybag.

The free Master Wu Keychain is valid from December 1 to 7 or until supplies last.

December 5 to 6: VIP Monthly Model Build is a Train (40250).

To reserve your spot, simply register for the December MMB by visiting shop.LEGO.com/Minibuild-Registration starting November 15. The LEGO MMB is meant for children ages 6 to 14, and must be completely built in store.

December 8 to 10: Double VIP Points on Everything.

If you still have time for some last minute Christmas holiday shopping rush, then you may want to go over your LEGO Christmas shopping list once again. For three days, you can earn those double VIP points while bagging those sets included in your LEGO wishlist. Let’s just keep our fingers crossed for that UCS Millennium Falcon.

December 8 to 17: Free LEGO Creator Mini London Bus (40220) with a purchase of $75 or more, or while supplies last.

Rolling out of its garage is the LEGO Creator Mini London Bus (40220), and it is back once more as a free promotional for a price point of $75 and more. It’s kind of nice of LEGO to bring back this younger sibling of the LEGO Creator Expert London Bus (10258) and have it offered once again with the same qualifying purchase when it first went live in 2016.

If you can hold on to that next LEGO purchase, and if you can add $40 worth of LEGO sets in your shopping bag, then this freebie is a better offer than that of Master Wu Keychain earlier mentioned.

December 15, 2017 to January 14, 2018: Free LEGO Star Wars Darth Vader Anniversary Pod (5005376) with a LEGO Star Wars purchase of $60 or more.

This fifth and latest promotional pod is a nod to Star Wars’ 40th anniversary, with the iconic Sith Lord being the highlight of this minifigure promotional. This latest minifigure version of Darth Vader seems to be a redesign over previous ones, and bagging this freebie is the best way of adding him to your collection. The smallest set by far in which you can add the Sith Lord in your roster of LEGO Star Wars minifigs is thru the Darth Vader Transformation (75183) set retailing for $25. For a price point of $60 and above of any LEGO Star Wars products, this is certainly a good catch.

Lastly, LEGO certainly knows how to end the year with a bang, with several 2018 sets being available as early as November 25. I am particularly excited for the LEGO Creator Modular Skate House (31081) which is a part of LEGO’s early reveal of its 2018 LEGO Creator line-up. Of course, we also have the re-released LEGO Creator Expert Taj Mahal (10256) – the now 2nd largest LEGO set ever made, having been bested from its throne by the UCS Millennium Falcon (75192) – scheduled for another run starting November 27.

The December LEGO Store Calendar also gives us another treat by giving us a peek of one of the 2018 Nexo Knight sets which is the Berserker Bomber (72003). It was previously reported that the Nexo Knights theme was given another year, with six additional sets slated for next year accompanying a new story arc.  We’ll talk more about that later in my next post.
