It's 1998 and you are in charge of Lego themes, you get a memo about a new theme that the company have invested in, some stupid space movie called 'Star Wars' You've been asked to make a list of all the sets Lego will have to make for the first 2 years of the star was licence. (2 waves every year 5-7 themes per wave.)
What would you decide to include? Would you have the Falcon in the first wave? Endor bunker in 2000? No UCS?What minifigures would you include or remove from the official sets. As a reference here are the sets released in 1999 (13 sets) and 2000 (23 sets).
Here is a quick template you can use, as well as my example
Set Name: 7787 Red Squadron
Wave: Year 1 Wave 1
Minifigure list: Luke Skywalker (pilot) Biggs Darklighter (pilot) Wedge Antilies (Pilot) R2-D2 Wedge's Astromech Bigg's Astromech
Set description: 3 X-Wings with the relevant pilots, for the Death Star Trench Run from ANH. It's an easy way to bulk buy x-wings and can be combined with 7878 Darth Vader's Tie Advance and 7879 Tie Fighter to create the battle for Yavin. Luke's X-wing will also be available separately (Like the Podracer set's were)
Obviously here are a few things you have to be aware of:
- No Crazy Futurist Talk i.e No episode II/III/Clone Wars ect.
- Be Realistic. Think as if you were in charge of the business and have to make a profit, nothing stupid like 40 battledroids for £7
- Episode I was released and you MUST include some sets from The Phantom Menace
Thanks for reading and I hope this begins a huge discussion, my choices will be posted at a later date and i'm interested in hearing yours!
