Just like I said back in the day about the Sea Cow: No matter how well-designed it is, nobody will buy this after EOL, not for himself and not for his kids.

I have to agree but maybe we can allow them a pass on one D2C set no one wants every year. 2014 was Seacow, 2015 was Temple of Airjitzu, 2016 was Batcave, 2017 Joker Manor,  2018 Hulkbuster.

This set will probably spark a Sea Cow bump.  Even more if there is a TLM3 and a D2C#3.   I never picked up a Sea Cow and that was one of the first things I thought of when I saw this.  

But this set is way cooler.   It's so out of the norm for TLG that I bet there were some epic fights between the design team and the executive team to get this released.  Look at all the non-standard building techniques!   Probably gave the instruction designers nightmares...

AMAZING-looking set! But the big question is...will I buy it at retail? Wait, anyone know the MSRP for this set yet? I'm guessing $199.99 but it might end up being $249.99.

Based upon the fact that Ninjago Docks (internal licensed LEGO set) has 375 more pieces and +1 minifigures and is selling for $229 US; I'll bet you're right @ $199 for this set. 

Of course, the Sea Cow was only 2700 pieces and sold for $249 US.  So who knows...

Good point on the Ninjago Docks set. I think this will be $199.99 which is not too bad of a price point, but I'm almost positive this will be discounted at least 20% down the line.

Sea Cow is pricier because of the large boat pieces.
