While the sets definitely have a Time Cruisers vibe to them, they don't look like the parts dump that that theme turned out to be. There are too many new parts and in new colors, (Cloud Cuckoo Palace, for example), and the parts all seem to fit together more thematically than in TC--the quasi-Western steampunk glider, for example; all of the pieces in that set look like they could
be part of a saloon, even down to the dartboard, whereas in TC there was an obvious glut of pirate ships, castle walls, BURPs, and Aquazone/Divers parts just thrown together. Only Bad Cop Pursuit looks like it could have come from an overabundance of City Police set leftovers.
I will definitely try to pick up multiples of several of these sets, particularly the glider and Metalbeard's Duel. And I'll have to pick up at least one Cloud Cuckoo Palace. Heck, I'll have to pick up at least one of all of them. Hopefully the movie is really good (i.e. wife likes it), so that she's more willing to let me spend money
