Help choose a Lego Star Wars 10th annaversiry set (2009) Part 2 - Voti
Posted 24 February 2008 - 08:25 AM
The only Star Wars movie that really brought out real emotion in me aside from the first, and yet the one with the CRAPPIEST renditions in plastic of one of the franchise's most important and dramatic scenes...
...the rebels getting their megablocks handed to them by giant, lumbering machines of death while freezing their butts off, initiating extreme survival tactics, talking to dead people, fighting hulking monsters, and ending up having to ditch on the whole place they worked so hard to maintain.
I ask you... when was the last time, in Lego or from Kenner / Hasbro, did you EVER see Hoth done justice as a playset?
But hey, if you guys are happy with a few ships blowing up over a big metal planet or some of those other revolutionary ideas, knock yourselves out.
While I remain painfully conscious.

Well the Hoth Base was a $50 set and this set has a $150 price point, so the potential is very good.

i'd propose a deathstar playset in the spirit of http://www.baronsat...._Death-Star.htm (but not at this rediculous price, after all lego produced the sail barge at 90 euro where he asks 1000 euro)

And the ISD and RC are swet sets, and for me clearly opens the way to a MF Tantive IV !!
And please guys, stop discusing what you ant to see, please reply to the poll, if notits clearly not helping ;-)

Now I'll say this. My heart screams Tantive IV, but they won't do it sufficiently, and at this point we have every necessary minifig to do it ourselves except for Captain Antilles.
We'll never get a Captain Antilles anyway... LEGO isn't about to say, "oh look, you can lift him by the neck and throw his shattered lifeless shell into the corner of the room when Vader doesn't get what he wants!" Then a little picture showing someone throwing him at their eye with an X over it. Not happening. Most iconic anniversary set possible, but they won't do it. >:-(
Endor. It's iconic enough. You can always recreate the victory party marking the end of the whole series, and it gives us what we really need, minifigs! *sweet*
Luke (new hat), Leia (same hat), Han (using that trenchcoat I keep telling them to make for Comm. Gordon), Rebel Troopers (3rd use of that hat, thus making the part worthwhile), reddish brown, dark tan, or even bley Ewoks. Throw in a couple, they're small. *wub*
Want to impress me to death? Anakin, Obi-Wan, Yoda spirits. 8-° I'll keep dreaming on that one.
THEN, early the next year you follow it up with an Endor Rebel trooper and Ewok battlepack with a couple of hokey Ewok weapons. Trust me, after the *cough*dropship*cough* they can do hokey just fine. Add a 2 Stormie, 2 Scoutie + bikes set for the Imperials. MASSIVE SALES.
Oh, and if you really want to make the $$$ LEGO... Forestmen faction for castle with a big treehouse. Yes, treehouse. Crossover sales out the wazoo as people snatch them up to create an Ewok village and fill out their forest.
Intelligent Planning Makes Big $$$ On! *y*
Shadows is looking for stalkers. Yep, you heard me right. CLICKY!

*edit* I also meant Scout Troopers. I am not sure how I at first forgot them. I must be "getting to old for this sort of thing."

I would be very happy with PT Jedi temple becuase if you think about it, the jedi temple is a set that can really only be released for a situation like this, whereas things like the Tantive 4 will most likley be released anyway as a set for the 2011 TV series.
My second vote would go to the Royal Naboo Starship although maybe to impractical because it is chrome, but i would love one anyway! *wub*

whoops! forgot the trench idea! no, too small, it would be only minis, and cost about $20... as for the "other" idea, still hoping for the all scenes set, (like 2-6 small scences from every movie) such as: ki adi mundi on mygeeto, with 2 of his batillion clones shooting him down, maybe a backround item, like a tower or something; or qui gon jinn and obi wan vs darth maul; han solo shooting greedo; han, luke and chewie in disquise. i think you get the point. i would absolutly love that!
so is this it? after a period of time (does anyone know how long?), the set with the most votes on EB, TLC will take into serious consideration? i hope so...

My Jedi Master instincts tell me we'll have 2 Endor BPs in january '09 ;-) Don't jump on my guys, its only my assumption. Why ?
* the scouties are the only troopers that never were subject to TLC's colour change
* TLC invented sweet new colours for future Ewoks: dark brown and dark tan are magnificent colours IMO
* This year saw the birth of the such anticipated Ep4 rebels, so the only rebels that need to be done are the Endor ones
* This makes a spot for a sweet exclusive set: Endor Bunker Door (like the Hoth one) - see how I look marketing strategies here ;-)
* finally, the CW made a brilliant speeder bike (no need to reinvent one for the scouties BP)
So to wrap it up, the only novelty part would be the Endor Trooper hats and thats it !! They have all the moulds for everything else ;-)
EDIT: sorry Legoman for that off topic intrusion ;-) And I was the first one to try and stop it !! My bad.
