I can't imagine a direct rerelease, they've never directly rereleased anything (other than the taj mahal? Although the rerelease did come with a brick seperator! :laugh:) there's always been some slight variance. Although it certainly can't be dismissed, it could be a straight up rerelease... For me, I'd be inclined to believe they had a target piece count and it coincided with the previous, but am seriously hoping it's been improved upon... Or I'll be saving some money. 

They’ve directly rereleased a few things in the past so there certainly is precedence, most recently the Taj Mahal, Vestas wind turbine, Ideas Saturn V and ship in a bottle. The Star Wars line is no stranger to rereleases either, I’m pretty sure the original TIE Advanced vs Y-Wing had 3 set numbers over the years. If there were any UCS set to do a direct rerelease without any new design work 10225 is a one of a handful they could get away with, especially since the inside of that model is already built with bright colours to help differentiate the parts during building.

2021 UCS R2 piece count is supposedly the same as 10225 at 2127 pieces... so if that’s correct it’s either a massive coincidence or 10225 is getting a direct rerelease. I’m inclined to assume rerelease but it’s still too early to tell.

Two of the AT-ATs have had the same piece count despite being completely different designs. 10178 and 75054.

You fool! Clearly it'll be a 1700-piece minifigure scale gunship with 260 clone troopers! :laugh:

I'm optimistic about slave one, since I couldn't find the 2019 one for a good price I might end up getting this one if it's large enough.

And that AT-AT is going to be a sight to behold...I'm wondering as how they'll do it, seeing as most larger mocs use glue.

I was thinking an updated 4490 Mini Gunship with a few thousand clones

Am absolutely stoked about the ucs atat/gunship. Both my favourite star wars vehicles, coming out the same year as ucs versions that I honestly never thought they'd ever do! 

 

 

I'm looking forward to the 1700 piece gunship with 260 clones......... :laugh:

They did rerelease two Ideas sets - Saturn V and the Ship in a Bottle - same exact sets but different Lego #. But for star wars, it'd surprise me for an exact re-release, especially from a set from almost 10 years ago.

The Taj Mahal timeline was similar. I could see this being a direct re-release since they are already doing 2 original UCS sets for 2021.

I don't think so. Even as a re-release, it would have the brick separator and have 2128 parts.

Yes.

True, although those were both pretty close to the original releases, and as ideas sets I feel like it's a bit different.

Saturn had a slight difference with it's rerelease, it had some slight modification to do with the capsule mounted to the top of the rocket. No idea on the ship in a bottle though...

Either way, I'm happy if it is a rerelease as others will get the chance to get a good set and I'll save money, or if its not a rerelease, I'll still probably be happy (if its an improvement) although may have to forego getting it as I want the ucs atat/gunship more

Of course!  And they're all the elite battalion of clones of Clone Commander Cody!  (What's a clone of a clone called...?)

I would bet that R2-D2 is similar to how the Death Star re-release was handled.  That one I guess is it's own precedent because I don't think they've ever retired a set to replace it with a direct re-release (like, not even retiring that 2005 X-Wing after 4 years on the shelf to bring out an updated model, but literally retiring it for the exact same thing plus a couple of slight changes), but I think there's only so much they can really do to improve upon that set, at least based on how people talk about it.  Maybe just simplify a few parts (like, things that took more pieces than necessary, to make them look a bit more streamlined or continuous with newer parts) and then add some more detail in other sections and leave the overall structure more or less the same.

According to the excellent heir to the empire trilogy, they would be called commander Coodys, (Spoilers for that trilogy follow, I highly encourage reading it so don't open that spoiler unless you read them)

Spoiler

ala Luuke Skywalker or Joruus C'Baoth

But you're right, I made a mistake. It's actually a 1700 pc gunship, as well as The following figures: Rex, Cody, Vaughn, Doom, Thorn, Gree, Lock, Wolffe, Bly, and Bacara, each with 2 pilots, 2 airborne/flametrooper/ARC troopers, 1 AT-RT driver, and 20 clone troopers for each faction.

They were a bit more about lego underestimating demand and then re-releasing (or more like resupplying) the sets shortly after retiring them, too. I'm thinking the dome, at least, will be altered somewhat.

Do we know what figures are coming in the Darth Vader Meditation Chamber?

I think I've seen that it's Vader and an officer, with leakers saying most likely Admiral Piett

I thought I saw that it also included a stormtrooper too, though that was some time ago so it may be correct. I think I have heard of admiral piett inclusion as well,.

There is probably a high degree of uncertainty as to whether the Darth Vader rumour is correct!!

We’re really not sure on the Vader one, or on the inclusion of black pieces. I’ve heard rumors of a majority of neon green pieces and Rose Tico, a Porg and an unnamed purple Ewok being the minifigures.

It may be fake, but it looks like Maul just leaked. If it’s real, it looks to be the best iteration yet.

Edit: never mind, I think it’s fake

Is the Darth Vader Meditation Chamber an actual set which you can buy on Lego.com or is it some exclusive you can only get through shopping in some store hundreds of miles away

I’m hoping it’s a proper available set and not like the Bespin Duel set

Bespin duel was a convention exclusive that was only released online due to COVID restrictions cancelling the convention. This is a set actually meant for consumer release.

Is there any news or rumors of an upcoming convention exclusive? Be curious what they will do now they know SDCC is virtual in 2021.

I think in general, convention stuff tends to only get revealed/leaked very soon before the set actually comes out, probably because they don't appear in any sort of retailer catalog and I'd assume people working in and around a convention either don't know what the exclusive will be/are much less likely to breach an NDA since they wouldn't want to mess up a relationship with a company that wants to be at their convention. 

I know last year we got info on the Bespin one in like late July or something and the set came out in August I believe?
