LEGO Star Wars 2021 Set Discussion - READ FIRST POST!!!

Recommended Posts

Leaked photos don't always show every detail. It's possible that the cover photo for the Bad Batch set has them with heads and hair pieces but that their helmets are also included in the set. That's speculation based on possibility, not a solid rumor. Just to be clear :grin:

LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga has been delayed once again. This hardly comes as a surprise and the devs should definitely be taking all the time they need for the game but putting this out near the end of the previously communicated releasewindow is very unfortunate and a bit disappointing.

Oh man. What worries me is that they haven't attached even a vague date to that (three months, six months, whatever), which suggests to me there's a lot of stuff to fix than they thought. As you say, glad that they're fixing it, but still. At this rate they'll have to release another holiday special to make blue milk Luke relevant again! :laugh:

I haven't bought a LEGO game on release for a long time, have any been delayed this badly before?

I mean it’s pretty likely nonsense because a) the batch batch wear their helmets most of the time and b) didn’t a gunmetal grey p2 helmet leak ( and was logically assumed to be bad batch, probs Hunter).

Sabine should’ve had her helmet but Lego only gave it to us once, but she did get a new melded hairpiece ( and hopefully Lego have gotten better since then) . That said I don’t think that they’ll give us hair, I mean Hunter’d look best with a new part like ninjago movie Cole but without the bun but if they do include hair and I doubt they’d give us a new part for that.

This is correct, a gunmetal grey clone helmet did leak as a test mold for Hunter long before the set was announced. Some people theorized that it was actually an unprinted Gree helmet, but this is untrue, as his is silver plastic.

I’m gonna hold out faith that they’ll have helmets. If they don’t, I’ll be VERY unhappy.

Two things:

One: I just realize that if they don’t put the Bad Batch helmets in the HV (if this rumor is true), then we will almost certainly get more sets, which I see as a fair trade off.
Two: I’m kind of worried about if we will end up with some kind of Cyberpunk 2077 or Avengers game thing with the Skywalker Saga. It’ll keep getting delayed, and we will keep building up hype for it, and then it will be disappointing.

That's make sense! But on the other hand, it seems like Disney very likes to support its products such as movies/cartoons,series,so it's hard to believe they will not make more sets of Bad Batch

 

By the way,people don't talk much about that here,but i'm pretty excited to get the information about future advent calendar set.Especially intresting what troopers they will add to it (there are usually 1-2 of troopers in advent calendar)

I wonder if they’ll do Christmas sweater Boba with his new helmet for Book of Boba Fett. Just a thought.

Just wanted to say that the gray helmet isn't necessarily for the Bad Batch set.  I agree that the timing probably would line up with that set, but there's numerous examples of prototypes in random colors made all of the time that don't have any real relevance to a set.  It could just be a case that someone took a picture of it and a leaker thought it was indicative of a Bad Batch helmet.  I agree it would be very strange for them to not have helmets, but I'm just saying that the helmet picture doesn't confirm or deny anything.

Nope this is the first time. It's understandable with the pandemic and all that but it's the huge lack of communication that's pissing off the fans now.

It's understandable not giving a release date at this point as they'd only be setting people up for more disappointment if that future date also isn't met. Much better to wait until they're sure rather than continuing the cycle of announcement/postponement.

I think the advent calendar figures were rumoured as Anakin, Luke and Rey in two variants each, but I cannot be sure and Boba Fett seems likely as a candidate for a Christmas figure.

So they would delay it again?

The game will be finished when it's finished. They said they'll give us further information as soon as they can.

If there's nothing to communicate outside of 'we can't meet the deadline' then they shouldn't be communicating anything else. They're handling it well; unlike CDP / CDPR who were churning out Cyberpunk 2077 marketing to hype up the audience while the game was being continually delayed as the development team slip further behind schedule, knowing they can't meet the expectations being set by the marketing department. It's also not just the pandemic, they're building this game on a new engine which is a notoriously difficult process that almost always holds up development even in a non-pandemic situation. I can't imagine how difficult it must be developing the game in the current circumstances. I understand you may not be complaining yourself, but it's worth putting this out there because clearly a lot of people need to hear it.

If Boba is being included, what better variant than the one that actually appeared in the original Holiday Special? It'll never happen but one can dream.

Concerning the helmets of the Bad Batch, I think Hunter and Echo could probably use the existing Phase II helmet with new printing. Wrecker could use the Mandalorian helmet if no new mould will be introduced for him. Crosshair could use the Flametrooper helmet with new printing, but then he would not have a rangefinder. Only Tech truly needs a new mould.

I somehow don't doubt that Lego would skip out on the helmets considering they did for Rex, Gregor, and Wolfe in the Rebels AT-TE set, two of which would've required a new print only. 

There's a difference there, as in those episodes the clones didn't wear their helmets most of the time. Rex went on to wear his often in the latter part of the show, but for the episode the AT-TE is based on they didn't wear their helmets for most of it.

The phrasing here gave me the sudden idea of a princess bride type thing for book of boba fett, where the episodes are flashbacks bracketed by an elderly boba sitting there in a sweater reading "the book of boba fett" to Fennec or his kid or whatever. :grin:

Wait, when? I don't think we've ever had multiple character variants in an advent calendar before, this would be interesting.

If they somehow threw out any remaining pretense of Star Wars being a franchise that takes itself seriously and did that I would be over the moon. Princess Bride is amazing.

I don’t think even TLG is insane enough to not put their helmets in. I’ve seen arguments revolving around Sabine but Sabine spends a lot more time with her helmet off in comparison to the BB. Hair pieces I think is a bit out there as a possibility but if there’s no helms they’ve actually lost their minds.

Yup, it's a great film. Maybe they could even do what they did with deadpool and have Boba Fett kidnap the guy who played the kid in that film and forcibly read him the book of boba fett. :roflmao:

another thing people don't seem to remember is that only 60% of the bad batch would use hair pieces in the first place, since Wrecker and echo are bald. It'd be really strange if they didn't include their helmets.

What do you guys think the hair/headgear molds will be? Personally I'm leaning towards:

Helmets: Hunter and echo using the basic p2 mold, Crosshair using the ARC mold or a new mold, Wrecker with the invincible iron man mold and Tech with a new mold. 1-2 new molds total.

Possible hair theory: Hunter using either a new mold or the old luke hair (Dark brown) with his bandana printed on his head, echo with no hair (printed cybernetic stuff like lobot), crosshair with the old ben hair in LBG, wrecker with no hair, and Tech with the Tarkin hair in brown.

While looking at the hair I realized there's some more skin tone variance as well. Most of the batch definitely would be most accurate with the current clone skin color, but tech looks like light flesh would work in some images. Echo honestly could use LBG or white as a skin tone at this point, my man CT-1409's looking rough :sad:

It would just make people even angrier when they delayed again, which I believe is inevitable based on how things have been going.

I recall this was mentioned earlier in this thread, but I cannot remember whether it was either a rumour or just a suggestion, though I believe it was speculated their would be a child Anakin and adult Anakin, desert Luke and ROTJ Luke and a TFA Rey and a TROS Rey.

Also, on another note, the Razor Crest was back in stock at my local Target, and there were multiple copies. Its the first time I've ever seen one in a store.

And Happy Easter to all.

I think it will be a while. I believe that we only got leaks for the I-TS transport minifigures last summer and that was after the official pictures came out

The Marvel sets are scheduled for June whereas the Star Wars sets will be released in August, so no :shrug_oh_well:

Last year we had the Grievous fighter leak with a super blurry picture in February, official reveals of the Razor Crest/501st Troopers sets in the spring, and an official reveal of the AT-AT in May.  Everything else leaked in June, we knew the sets, price points, and piece counts, but there was no details on figures or anything with the builds.  It wouldn't surprise me if we got a reveal on one of the larger sets in like May (maybe the Bad Batch shuttle, to coincide with the release of the show?) but it seems like June-ish is probably a safe bet for when we'll get some leaks.

This is what I'm guessing. Bad batch officially revealed in the first 4 days of may, the other sets leaking in june.
