Bear in mind the sets release a month later this year, so what leaked in July last time around likely won't come until August this year, what leaked in August won't come until September, etc. 

Do we even know why it's in october this year?

Could be Disney and Lucasfilm trying to keep a lower profile this time around. Maybe there are certain things they don’t want to reveal until then.

Falconfan has a mysterious 18 hour countdown going right now. I don’t want to assume too much, but it could be for a leak or reveal of some kind. But then again, we’ve read too much into these things in the past.

I believe there was pushback from Hasbro (among others?) that releasing the toys so far in advance of the movie — at a point when there wasn't even that much marketing from Disney — was negatively impacting sales. I don't know if LEGO felt the same way since their Star Wars sales weren't reported to be terrible like Hasbro's were. 

And, this year's Force Friday also includes The Mandalorian show and the Fallen Order game, so timing may have worked out all-around better for them.

Actually Rian Johnson took the fun away from it...but I digress. I can’t imagine it will be too long before we get official descriptions and images. The UCS reveal is probably going to be pretty soon too, I feel like it kinda has to be.

Completely agree with both parts of this comment. didn't we get set leaks for the three biggest TLJ sets in may though? even pushing back a month, that's only june.

Don't forget a anakins sudden force ghost!

If this is the thing where he shows up on endor it's because he was redeemed, but that's getting away from actual rumor/speculation discussion. As to the possibility of lego force ghosts with presumably luke in the TROS sets, I don't think we'll get force ghosts (at least trans-blue ones) anytime soon.

I was just going to say force friday is in october but yeah this is alot more detailed and makes sense. Pushing out sets for a specific film when there's no marketing except a single trailer and some posters isn't going to make it a bestselling set, no matter how iconic it is, moreso if it's a figure like zorri where the general public wouldn't even know who it is.

I think we got extra-lucky that year because the boxes leaked directly from the printer (they were still flat and unassembled if I remember correctly). No doubt that leak was sealed immediately since LEGO is reported to have gotten in a lot of trouble with Disney over it.

My guess is that Falconfan’s cryptic countdown is for the Disney D2C, and not anything SW. At first I thought it would be for the UCS but it’s probably the Disney one

That can’t be it since pictures of the Disney D2C have been all over IG for several hours now :laugh:

The countdown is still on, but the Disney D2C leaked.

That leak was something that very rarely happens, it wasn't an official picture leak (like the ones that Lego and retailers use), but rather it was only the packaging itself, probably directly from the factory. Leaks like that don't happen usually. If we get set leaks before the official reveal (and I heard some people already have the pictures of the sets), they can leak like a week before Triple Force Friday.

Some TROS info - Lando won't use the white cape that he leaked with, he will use a cape similar to the one from "Solo" Lando minifig, only the blue will be lighter.

A riddle for you: What’s green — or white — and head all over?

Is it the rumored busts for 2020 in the same vein as this year’s Vader and Sith Trooper busts that are speculated to be Boba Fett and a Stormie, precious? :head_back:

I think the countdown was for the official reveal, not the leak. The countdown is over and the train is the only new thing that’s been posted, so I can only assume that’s what it was, and the timing just didn’t add up perfectly.

Could be, but honestly why have a countdown if it does not know that more or less exactly the timing does match, otherwise it just looks stupid

disney d2c (a train i think) was leaked before the countdown finshed...

If this is more busts like (stonewars.de, maybe? i forgot who) claimed a few days ago, I'll be happy. I really like the look of that sith trooper bust, and some actually commercially availible ones like it would be great.

That’s because it wasn’t a countdown to the leak. It was a countdown to the official reveal.

If the next UCS set is indeed a classic Star Destroyer, it may well be the vehicle only without minifigs as we've seen no leaks so far save for episode 9 figures and it's sure to be announced shortly given it will likely be a September release.

1st October 2019 is the official release date.

The First Order Stormtrooper has gotten a minor upgrade with black and red markings across the chest armor.

Neat :thumbup: Is the helmet in the TFA or TLJ style? I‘d prefer the latter

fits the addition of red to enemy troops.

eah, TLJ style is so much sleeker-looking for the mouth, TFA style looks almost cartoonish to me.

The torso on this stormtrooper is identical to the one on one of the jetpack troopers. I think one of them is probably wrong

I think you're right. I'm thinking this one just has the wrong torso on it.

The Jumptrooper already has a specific torso created for him that looks very different to a regular FO Stormtrooper torso. I think the second variant of the Jumptrooper is wrong and that the Stormtrooper-esque torso with the new black and red markings actually belongs to the new FO Stormtrooper.

Also, the (TLJ variant) helmet printing has been updated to show a bit of reflection in the lenses.
