LEGO Star Wars 2016 Pictures and Rumors

Recommended Posts

Just got Star Wars Advent Calendar and its a pretty awesome set! First, the minifigure selection is great: Cloud City guard, OT Stormtrooper, Snowy Chewbacca, Death Star trooper, ep 2 C-3PO( best one of them all), Luke (repeat from 2015) and the rest. Builds are cool as well, especially Slave I and Tantive IV. Being my first Advent Calendar I love it, and hope to see some ep 7 stuff in next years calendar!

Are you sure it's an episode 2 C-3PO or just a regular silver protocol droid? I hope it's a Threepio.

Nothing is said on the box, so I assume it's ep 2 silver C-3PO. After taking a closer look at the minifigure I can see a lot of wires in a belly area, just like 3PO in ep 2. Edited by benderisgreat

From a manufacturing standpoint, it's probably a pretty different set. It's not without precedent; we've seen sets rereleased under different numbers before. What if they just wanted to change the number to reflect their new numbering scheme?

there is no need to explain what LEGO is doing. They just do what ever they want and that is a fact... and its an end of the story...

honestly if you will be LEGO, will you ever care about the opinion of 100 fanatics from the forum, if thousand or millions are buying your sets anyway ???

Great! I was wondering where you bought it, I'm going to LEGO store today and was thinking maybe they had it out early.

Hasn't it already been confirmed that it isn't 3PO in the calendar?

Everybody agreed to disagree if I remember correctly. On a picture you can't see details on the torso very well, but once you have it in hands you'll definitely see its silver ep 2 C-3PO!

I thought it was supposed to be E-3PO to tie in with the Bespin guard.

Double VIP points for october and a free calendar, all in conjunction for the RO wave?

Damn! Thanks Lego!

Oh and CM4, you have any idea on that 20$ gift you get by purchasing the Death Star in one of the promo for the set?

K what?

Not surprised at all.

K :tongue:

Exactly why I said K.

This isn't a chatroom, guys.

Isn't that just the amount you'd get back in VIP points?

Nah that would be 25$. Anyhow I would be amazed if someone would buy this before the VIP points event 2 weeks later, you'd save 50$.

The calendar is released october 1 though, doesn't seem to fit with the early acces.

Actually, aren't you a penny short of the $25? $499.99 would equate to $20 in VIP points. They don't round up (at least, they never have on my account). I just assumed that the promo is saying you would get (correctly so) $20 in VIP points.
