  1. It's quite easy: The first post in the news thread is going to be updated with the latest set infos and you can post actual news there if there is news. This thread here is for discussing said news (and nobody stops you from posting the news here as well). That way people can subscribe to the news thread and get notified when there's actual new info, rather than getting notified every single time someone starts rambling and getting off topic in the discussion thread
  2. And what about it? If you guys don't want to discuss your and others' opinions, nobody forces you to read or comment in a discussion thread I personally really like the wave. I think the heavy scout walker will have to grow on me first, and I simply don't like its minifig selection, just minifigs we already had before (I wouldn't count Hux with Obi-Wan hair as "new").
  3. My guess is because it'd be so popular. UCS sets don't get sold in every store. A lot of kids probably would want it for the holidays, and Lego will probably sell a ton of it.
  4. Might be possible it's coming in the Winter Wave instead what you? So they simply swapped stuff? Or just a heavy redesign?
  5. Some of the new figs being from microfighters would make a lot of sense. And I'm really curious where some of the figs we've seen and not seen yet would fit in (e.g. Tie Pilot, Hux, Phasma). Why so aggressive? Firstly, I was merely suggesting something, not "telling you what to do". Secondly, we were referring to the 2018 "news" thread, where posting stuff other than news is forbidden, sorry if that wasn't clear.
  6. Thanks for the new setup indeed! I agree, locking the other thread and copying/moving news posts over there might be a good idea to avoid it becoming cluttered.
  7. Great to hear that we're getting Dagobah Luke!
  8. Indeed, SvL can't just spill all the beans or else he'd get in trouble. I wonder whether Yoda's hut comes with Dagobah Luke.
  9. We had a meaningful discussion about rumors of upcoming sets and users speculating what could be in those sets, based on the information we had. This is not randomly making a wishlist. All this complaining about users alledgedly posting "wishlists" here and all bickering what is and what isn't allowed in this thread, which has been going on in the last couple of weeks, is in my opinion much, much worse than the actual occasional off-topic posts. I think we're at a crossroads here. There either should be more discussion allowed and encouraged, and avoiding all the bickering what is allowed and what isn't in the thread, or we should strictly stick to the known facts. The latter would be boring, though - there's already a first post and there's not much discussing need there. People would probably just discuss rumors on other forums or reddit, then. But maybe both is possible? A "2018 rumor & speculation" thread, that is a little bit less strict, and a "2018 announced & recently released sets thread", where people could discuss the official images & their own opinions on recently released sets without having to make a review. On topic: Whoa I need to get the hut! Seems Lego finally listened to us
  10. Maybe we'll be getting a new Imperial battle pack in January? The TFA First Order BP was also retired for the latest one. Unless the movie is postponed, it seems we'll be getting a Han Solo wave on April 20th: http://www.brickfanatics.co.uk/lego-star-wars-han-solo-movie-launch-date-rumoured/
  11. Awesome work, looks great! How often did it fall apart when assembling? :D
  12. I just noticed the Imperial Officer from the Advent Calendar is different from 75055, it has 4 red/blue squares on the plaque rather than 75055's 3, and it has 2 code cylinders instead of 1.
  13. Yep, with swapped dark tan arms :) And the hair is from Mr. Incredible (someone suggested that earlier in the thread).
  14. Thanks! Yep, couldn't find a more fitting one with blonde eyebrows.
