It's not a minifigure series. The image is public, guys.

Sorry, I was unaware there were images already.

No, or at least Grond isn't, he commanded troopers on the moon of endor and wasn't a tie pilot at all.

.

DS-181-3 & DS-181-4 are.

They're mentioned as wearing black Imperial Navy Crewman outfits
The old Decipher ccg has them as part of the 181st (although given the treatment of EU stuff...)

....and now I want an Imperial pilot with a moustache.

Oh okay ,well that's weird that they wear the same Crewman outfits whilst not being the same rank or navy troopers but it means one can use this figure (with different faces for each) for different imperials.

My info was also legends, so it might not apply in canon but that doesn't really bother me. :wink:

Maybe the Bigs face from the next X-wing (although you'd need to remove the second face).

Now we know box sizes, so here are probably prices for summer wave:

75214-25$, 30€

75215-25$, 30€

75216-50$, 60€

75217-60$, 70€

75218-60$, 70€

75219-110$, 110€

75220-150$, 140€

I think they are pretty accurate and reliable.

well, we've known the box sizes for about a month now, but i'd be relatively happy with those usd prices if they're accurate. but i think on most you've underestimated it ...

I LOVED that game. I collected every card from every expansion. Been sitting in my basement untouched for 15 years now...

Thanks for the info. I hadn’t thought of using the ccg cards for officer reference, but this is a great excuse to get them out again and try to make sense of these minifigures.

Okay, thanks!  It is very strange how we are getting another Sandcrawler though, I mean I will probably pick it up but it's just a little weird how we are getting one this soon after the last one which was a UCS version.

It will have been over four years since that one by the time this version comes out. Plus, a lot couldn’t afford the UCS version. I think there’s an appropriate amount of time in between.

Has anyone read this article: 

https://www.thebrickfan.com/is-a-lego-star-wars-ucs-cloud-city-set-coming-soon/ 

Is it just wishful thinking or is the Lego employee actually saying "Bespin City" in the "bleeped out" parts of the video (like thebrickfan article suggests). 

I, for one think "Bespin City" would be a rather odd name for a UCS set...

But Lego has indeed given us these kinds of hints before (like the pictures of the UCS Falcon box, where one could just make out the box art through the white "wrapping")...

Agreed on the odd name, however maybe it's to disambiguate between itself and the original Cloud City 10123 which came out 15 years ago (also the semi-recent Carbon Freeing Chamber). With the name, Bespin City it's easier to imagine a large scale kit like Ninjago City with heaps of rooms/features. Let's hope that it leans more towards Ewok Village and less towards Assault on Hoth in terms of quality and execution of the build. It's exciting to think about the possibilities but I've been waiting for this release so long that I'm jaded. I'm not going to believe Bespin City even exists until we see prelims, however far off that is.

On the other hand, if TLG wasn't going to do a complete and inclusive large scale Cloud City, then why didn't we get smaller kits like Luke vs Vader on the wind vane as a follow-up to the Carbon Freezing Chamber? It's arguably the single most important scene in all of Star Wars, ever. There are genuinely arguments for and against getting this release in 2018, but Lego must be tired of listening to us ask for a new Cloud City. *Luke, I am your father* takes place on that wind vane. 

 

Just checked the video as suggested and it's not just wishful thinking, it sure does look like Hasan is saying Bespin. He also gestures and makes a "dome" shape with his hands. He does it twice. Interesting they framed him with a "city" behind him! 

"So we really wouldn't want to ruin the surprise for everyone." ;)

Just watched the video... not sure about the second bleep, but the first bleep definitely looks like he's saying "Bespin set".  I - 2 years though? (hopefully sooner!

I believe it's this year as a reliable person confirmed it on Instagram.

Does anyone know why they would call it Bespin City?  It better just be a big Cloud City and nothing else!:damn:

Considering the other projects; yeah, it's definitly hinting at something Bespin related.

We just got a big Nasa set and the other stuff is highly unlikely.

No worries; they're a bit buried by now. You should be able to find them on r/lego without too much trouble if you go back by a month or so.

Are you serious? I can promise you that it's definitely not. What a bizarre screw-up for TLG to have made...

Except that "Bespin City" is just wrong. It's called "Cloud City"; "Bespin City" would just be a mistake; that's not the city's name.

You guys are aware that TLG has a policy of never even considering the idea of approving potential Ideas kits if they already have the relevant license, right? It's almost as though folks are thinking that Hasan and his colleagues are just really, really stupid...

Yes, we may very well be getting a UCS Cloud City later this year, but this official LEGO announcement has nothing to do with it.

I doubt he is saying anything,if they didn't want the bleed they would re shot, its intentional done by tlg as a joke, not trying to hide what he is saying, but the scenario he suggested could only really space to 'I am your Father' or the space shuttle so it could be a subtle hint or tease but listening to the bleep won't reveal any secerts.

*Luke, I am your father* takes place on that wind vane. 

Sorry to be a pedantic big behind but the line is 'No,I am your father' as it is a reply to Luke stating that Vader killed his father.

@Azani said: You guys are aware that TLG has a policy of never even considering the idea of approving potential Ideas kits if they already have the relevant license, right? (I meesed up the quote ,I know)

No I'm afraid that that's not actually quite correct the policy only apply to ideas uploaded after 05/04/2017 (the 5th of April not the 4th of may :hmpf_bad:) so the I am your father project still had the slim potential to be chosen (I not saying that they actually would have as that would not make business sense, just that i was up for consideration) otherwise why would it have been allowed on ideas in the first place, it would be a pretty obvious red flag rather than something to check later likes Luke's diner. And just in case you don't believe me then here is the note from the ideas website.

Is there humor/sarcasm where you come from?

Yes this is called humour. And I am quite aware that his comment was sarcastic - hence the crying with laughter emoji.

The video was clearly tongue in cheek - this video was clearly carefully scripted and Lego would not be foolish enough to let out spoilers they don't want. They obviously intended on 'beeping' out the words and letting people speculate.
