LEGO Star Wars 2016 Pictures and Rumors

Recommended Posts

Everybody posting fake lists is verging on spam. Stop. Now.

Woof.

Isn't that very similar to 75085, TIE Advanced Prototype from January, seems like a waste of a set.

Well, it's probably different enough to warrant it's own set. Besides, they gotta start pumping out new TIEs with that new windscreen. :moar:

And is that 75144 Snowspeeder thing legit? We just got a FO Snowspeeder this year, and an OT snowspeeder last year. :wacko: Two options: Rebels, or something new? [let speculation commence.]

No. Both of them are called TIE Advance but their are not the same thing. Vader's TIE Advance has solar panel for both inside and outside surface of the wings but the TIE prototype only have solar panel for inside surface of the wings. Plus, both of them has their design been different enough to have a set for each of them.

Didn't someone already say it's a UCS Snowspeeder?

Regarding the potential new death star, what I'd really want compared to the last one (even though I love it and have it displayed ever since I bought it) is to have the exterior façades. Maybe it could simply split open in the middle to reveal the rooms, or each room could have a smaller movable facade. I don't know. But that's the only thing I'm guessing they could do to really improve from the last iteration and make me buy it (again).

+1, thought the same myself.

If i see another fake setlist i will leak the real one!

I was gonna suggest someone to do this but...

There will be Finn and Rey Battle packs each with 4 exact copies of each figure.

Also, there will be a "Jar Jar Jar". It's a cookie Jar molded like a LEGO Jar-Jar.

In addition, a new ship, the Minimum Falcon will be a set. It's the Millennium Falcon but only with the bare parts needed for flight. They Hyperdrive, steering mechanisms, engine, etc.

And finally, a snowspeeder.

EDIT: I think you'll all like the Jar Jar Jar. It's quite a jarring product. Don't leave it ajar though, or the cookies might get musty and dank. Excuse the jargon, by "Musty and Dank" I meant stale.

I literally LOL'ed at this.

Nope. That would make sense.

:laugh: :laugh: :laugh:

Don't forget these:

75153 Star Speeder 1000

75154 Trawn Returns to Canon

75155 Marvel & Star Wars Crossover

75156 UCS Jar Jar Binks

:laugh:

75156: (most possible Lego model EVER) With movable tongue feature!

Oddly, I'm sure this would sell pretty good. If made right.

Summer set list should be out soon for everyone to see, get excited.

Audience on edge of seats: "remember when we waited a year for the Star Wars trailer? This should be nothing!"

But still super agaonizing

And finally, a snowspeeder.

:laugh:

A review for 75137 Carbon Freezing Chamber will be up on Brickset soonish.

I really want to see what the functions are.

Don't forget the posable ears and extending eye-stalks! :laugh: They could kick it old-school, make it like the old Darth Maul bust.

I think what happened was a new Snowspeeder was rumoured and someone jumped to the conclusion it was a UCS set.

This. Why would they put out anoter one? Sure, they put out another UCS X-Wing. But that ship is probably the second most iconic ship in Star Wars after the Falcon, plus, the first one was released back in 2000(when I was 6 years old, still bugs me that I missed out on so many of the older sets at normal prices).

I think you are talking about something that I wrote. I said that it COULD be a new UCS Snowspeeder. And I still think it would make sense. :wink:

I am really curious as to what the new Death Star will be like...I don't see how 10143 could be improved!

Minifigures in old set really need an update. Lego has improved minifig quality since 2008. Plus some play features might be updated with new stud shooters and flick fire misiles. And they are probably going to make whole construction more stable. For me it's going to be great if they only update minifigs of the set, but they are more likely to redesign it a bit.

Yes, THAT set needs improvement. But I doubt they would make another minifigure vignette version, considering they are just now retiring it. I was thinking they might make an Episode IV Death Star.

Please can I remind everyone that this thread is for 2016 Pictures and Rumours only, thanks :classic:

If you want to talk about the availability of the new sets, there's already a dedicated thread (here). I'll move some of the recent posts across to it shortly.

Is it confirmed that the set will include minifigs? Perhaps it's not a playset but rather a 10143 Death Star II display piece.
