Just so's you know. The 75204 Sandspeeder is the T-47 variant and it's not tied to TLJ. I think they're just experimenting with new things, which is good! :)

Where did you get this info?

Wait a sec, you mean it's based off this unreleased Kenner toy?

I hope so, that'd be sick.

I'm hoping we get the ski speeder from crait as a set in the second wave of tlj sets, seeing as the already rumoured one is going based on that kenner toy.

Maybe there is a recolored T-47 in Rebels?

That's actually a very interesting idea! I was pretty disappointed with this news at first, but now I really hope it is Rebels based!

Any word on what the other 2 retail exclusives (75203 and 75205) are?

I have a feeling that if they do a Rebels set in 2018 it would probably be something like Zeb and Noghri speeder bike chase

Anything Noghri and I'm sold.

If this is legit, it would be the perfect opportunity to finally create a proper System-scale T-47 cockpit canopy piece (18 years overdue!).  The one with the UCS Snowspeeder is great, and I'm sure that TLG could give us a beautiful scaled-down version, much as they did with the X-Wing for 75102 and 75149.

If they include a new canopy and new Rebel helmets for a small/mid-sized set, I will buy at least one without a doubt!

As long as Thrawn gets a corrected torso, Rebel set torso prints don't have the best record.

It would be easy for them to give Thrawn the white and black sushi chef legs too.

I've not seen any evidence for this rumour, I don't think people should speculate too much over it. The likelihood is that the speeder is the Last Jedi one

@Catanas is a very reliable source. Besides, everyone just assumed it would be TLJ related. I highly doubt they would make a retail exclusive TLJ set. This is the most solid rumor we have for this set right now.

Cat doesn’t always leak too much but if she’s posted this then she must be pretty sure... and knowing what she does I trust her as much as any other bringer of news.

If it doesn’t surface as Cat has suggested then I’d say it’s down to something changing rather than her being misleading.

Fair enough, I'm still new here so wasn't aware. Will be a very interesting set to say the least. Maybe a new T-47 means a new AT-AT in the future?

There are 3 pix of new (?) minifigs in the Facebook group "Lego Star Wars Collectors"

-TLJ Rey with a different hairpiece than the one in the Walker set

-A pilot; blue suit, red X-Wing helmet

-another pilot; red/white A-Wing helmet

They were posted there, could be customs, could be leaks.

I’m not part of that group. Any chance they can be shared somewhere? Would that red helmet resemble John D’s Red Four?

I even hope they are customs since I actually had enough of TLJ pilots, it's like a third of all TLJ mini figures so far are pilots. =(

Cheers, fella. It is indeed John D's helmet. So now we just need Red Leader. Very interested to see what set these are coming in as the pilot jumpsuits are quite pale colours. Both female pilots too. 

Insignia on the B Wing style helmet definitely looks more 'Resistance' than 'Rebel' to me. Could these be the pilots in the T-47 speeder set? If they're TLJ I'll just pick up the red helmet.
