  1. Makes me wonder if Lego intentionally added pieces to reach that piece count! USD$120 for 1969 pieces is amazing! Props to Lego for not inflating the price for this.
  2. I don't think we saw the prices, but I'd say that the price points are pretty good indications of box size. A CCBS/Technic vehicle for $35 would mean that either the figure or the vehicle would have to be really small, so my bet is on a larger figure...
  3. Can't wait to see the large figure! This will be our first large CCBS SW figure since Grievous and Vader.
  4. Delta is great but it's not him who released the new images. Look here for the complete images: http://www.brickfinder.net/2017/04/22/lego-star-wars-jedi-starfighter/ It's lovely and I love that it includes Jango and Boba. But that price is downright ridiculous! The fact that this is an exclusive also probably means that it'd be harder to find it at a discount, in my country at least.
  5. Right, I didn't realize that. Thanks for the heads-up!
  6. Thanks for the info! Though I thought that Delta's leaks said that the arena set is the smaller one, while the ship build is the larger set? These set numbers seem to suggest otherwise...
  7. That's a good indication on roughly when we can expect to see pics this year - thanks for trawling through the old thread for the dates!
  8. Stumbled onto this thread and I just want to add my two cents. As a regular visitor to the Licensed and Star Wars forums, I've fallen foul of the off-topic rule in the Rumours threads on a couple occasions. It happens; I get too caught up in the thread. The thing is, with so many people posting in the Rumours threads, it's so easy to go off-topic. But I appreciate that when I did go off-topic - I can't remember which forum it was - but a mod PM'ed me and noted that I was a long-time member who hasn't had a bad record, so he gave me a chance and didn't take any action. I'm thankful that I was given that chance; just an anecdote to everyone posting negative things about mods in this thread. Also, while warnings are greatly appreciated, I note that it can be very tedious and time-consuming to give everyone a warning instead of suspending them immediately. So I do understand when mods suspend off-topic posters to 'clean up' a thread. It can be heavy-handed and harsh, but it's probably the most efficient way to do things. Mods have real lives to deal with as well; they can't constantly police threads. Plus it's not like we don't have threads to discuss (almost) everything under the sun - that's what the General Discussion and the Wishlist threads are for.
  9. Yipes. That's gonna cost a bomb over here in my country... Still figuring out if I even have the space for it. But thanks for the info!
  10. I don't think that has been confirmed yet. I don't buy it... Anyway, Lego Ragnarok Loki's costume is not the one seen in the trailer when he's wielding the two knives, but his outfit when he's watching the gladiator fight next to Grandmaster. Makes sense for us to get that costume in the gladiator ring set. He also wears that costume in the EW pics we got a few weeks back.
  11. Are you Santa? That's the best news I've heard all day! I'm getting tired of seeing trucks/Quinjets/generic spaceships. It's refreshing to get something unique for once. This makes the wait for pics so much less painful!
  12. Hopefully we get that ship with the circular ring in the larger set. The other ships look very plain and forgettable; I really want to see a unique Asgardian design!
  13. It's not just about lost profit, but lost hype. People have been clamouring for a UCS MF for years. The new UCS Snowspeeder would get easily overshadowed if a UCS MF were announced before the Snowspeeder was released.
  14. With the Death Star it's about not fixing what's not broken. Structurally, playset designs haven't changed much over the past few years. However, the internal structural design for spaceships has come a long way since 2008. I have old sets that fall apart at the touch of a finger, especially when transporting them around, or even during play. I don't own the original UCS MF to know this for sure, but given the advent of so many new pieces and Lego's improved internal structural designs, I'd wager that there'll be significant improvements to the UCS MF's structure that increase its sturdiness and hopefully also allows for more interior space.
  15. I love those fish villains! They look hilariously stupid, yet very unique and with nicely crafted headpieces!
