Sorry to ask an annoying question, but since we didn't get a look at summer sets at the NYTF this year, is there a usual period of time when decent resolution pictures of summer wave sets leak every year?

We can see them anytime. Maybe tomorrow, maybe 3 months from now... It can basically happen anytime.

So it appears for the solo sets we are getting them starting April 20th which is Friday but it will be apart of an event called “Wookiee weekend” instead of force Friday

Yup 4:20 :D

The Wookiee Weekend thing was started by JediTempleArchives.com in August last year. It was a joke. There's nothing official about it.

Not to add fuel to the fire, but when in the past has there ever been "fake leaks" before? I remember a couple fake Falcons last year, the Throne Room (which I think is real, but even if it isn't we'll be getting something similar anyway) and that's it

They've certainly been around for as long as EB has existed.

I asked this last year as well, but does anyone know if there’s been any talk of a TLJ poster for May the 4th or April 20th? They gave away the force awakens Lego movie poster on May the 4th, 2016... then skipped Rogue one last year (boooooooooo). This spring would likely be when they would do TLJ, but I’m worried that with the Solo movie they will skip/abandon doing the posters... which is a shame to stop now since they’ve made them for movies 1 through 7...

Considering they skipped Rogue One, I think it's more likely that TLJ would get a poster than Solo messing with anything.

Definitely most excited for the patrol battle pack, the imperial in me can't wait for more officers, crew and trooper variants!

But cages for the Corellian hounds sound cool

That's not right, is it? Or did they change Tobias's outfit?

i noticed that too ... i'm just wondering based off the leaked fig if the word stormtrooper shouldn't be there ... and some marketing bozo goofed ... i highly doubt the place i got them ad-libbed the descriptions - most likely an intern copy/pasting text direct from the mothership ... ***insert shrug emoji ...
