Sounds like the remaining 5% was right.

Ya know, sometimes I wonder which leakers are Deep Throating (NOT the sex term, the guy in All the President’s Men and Watergate, Mark Felt) us, by waiting for the right time for the info to be most impactful, and which are just trolls with info. I’m not pointing names here or anything, just something I’m curious about. 
To keep this on topic, I think the 30$ set will be something we really aren’t expecting. We can rule out:

Snowspeeder

Jedi Interceptor

Battle Pack, since it is retail exclusive

I could see it being:

A home or hut, but the Lars homestead couldn’t really be that small

A small Naboo starfighter in the new style

A terrain set like the 2014 one with the BARC trooper.

I’m really just not sure.

Speak for yourself.

My sarcasm clearly failed sadly. 
 

@Brickroll I imagine it’s nothing really that good that’s meant the leakers aren’t revealing the info (my guess, of course)

Wait, MandR is allowed to share info but doesn't? Why? *huh* Sure, he doesn't have to, but it's still a bit selfish to hold back that information for no good reason. Is it really that entertaining to watch us guessing blindly?

For someone that cynical, it probably is. :sad:

Maybe :shrug_oh_well: Well, then let's continue to entertain our evil shadowy overlords :snicker:

Judging by the fact that nobody rushed in to share that info, I think it's safe to assume it's nothing particularly newsworthy. So a set based on Mando, TCW, or The Bad Batch can probably be ruled out. @Brickroll might be on the right track with his "home or hut" idea, seems like the ideal price point for something in that style. When in doubt, OT is always a safe bet :tongue:

My ideal $30 'home or hut' would be some sort of Jedi Council room - they could fit in all the seats, Anakin, Obi-Wan, and maybe Yoda or a clone trooper.

I normally defend MandR cause I think the hate for him is kinda overblown, but...if he can tell us what the set is and just doesn't want to.. thats pretty crappy

Again, and once again I say this as someone who finds MandR pretty annoying most of the time, I think he's just trolling.

No way they fit all the seats in there for $30. Given the massive amount of prequel sets this wave already, I'm guessing a smaller TROS or OT set.

What's crappy is that there's hate at all - for any LEGO content creator.

I reserve my hatred for hollywood baby f**kers, mass murderers and politicians...you know, the reeeel bad guys.

Don‘t give me hope :cry2: I still haven‘t fully recovered from the utter betrayal that was last year‘s Death Star Duel set. The opportunity for a Duel on Exegol set was RIGHT THERE and they skipped it in favour of a mirrored rehash :tongue:

At least here in the US, it seems like stores have finally started to get their supply chain under control.  I still have yet to see the TIE and Imperial Shutter, but stores near me have finally had the X-Wing and Trouble on Tatooine reliably in stock, and plenty of the 2020 summer wave sets.  I saw Grievous' fighter for the first time in a while today, and stores have had ample supply of the AAT and 501st Troopers.  Just hope that this carries over to the summer wave and they can get the supply out there, because clearly the demand is higher than ever.

Hate is maybe the wrong word. Disdain or revulsion might be better.

Yeah, my order of 75299 and 75266 just came in today - I ordered them back in March.

I second this. I don't really understand the hate for someone who provides mostly quality info from what I've seen.

It seems to me like people dislike him just for the sake of it, or maybe because his content might appeal to a younger audience.

Is there even a single prequel set this year? Unless you mean the UCS gunship, which is not part of the wave, or the Mandalorian throne room, which is merely from the same era. I'd love to see at least one real PT set.

There’s a couple major reasons I’ve seen. 
 

1. He complains A LOT in his reviews. People find this petty and I can see the argument but tbh we are indirectly paying him to review a product (ad revenue) and I’d like to know all the flaws. Some of his criticisms are majorly petty (box art consistency?? because that affects the set??) but still. 


2. His campaigns. Personally, I love the 501st pack bc I just got out of my dark ages and just saw TCW so unironically thanks for being a stubborn troll Ryan. I do see how annoying they can be tho. 
 

3.  There’s an element of appealing to children. 
 

4. He’s kinda cocky and people don’t like that???

Anyway this whole discussion is so bloody middle school. The set will be what the set is and we’ll find out in a month or three. Chill.

I think we should all be grateful that we have rumour lists at all. Like someone else said, since no one is talking about it, the set probably won't be too special.

By the way, since there's supposedly no $30 battlepack this summer, do you think they will go back to making $15 battlepacks in the winter?

Unless the $30 set is a prequel set (my completely uninformed guess of what it is is that it is (by that confusing yet correct sentence I mean I think it will be a true PT set)), there is no rumoured PT set besides the gunship, unless you count the Vader helmet and R2D2.

I think Lego classify TCW as prequel. Explains the lack of AOTC sets and ‘prequel’ sets more generally. Makes sense just for fans of those three films it’s a tad frustrating.

Or maybe it's SO special, they're holding off on talking about it until it gets released!:sarcasm:

I know that was meant jokingly, but between now and the set releases there will be a lack of news for SW rumours so it could be used to fill that gap for leakers’ content if it is interesting, hence why they are not disclosing it by choice

It wasn't even the duel, which would have been interesting, it's just the tractor beam thing and cannon.

...yeah, there are a lot of prequel era sets this year. This upcoming wave is plurality TCW which is prequel era, and yeah ofc there's the gunship too.

It’s like watching a bunch of school kids who never grew up.

This is exactly why so many people I met from the community are no longer there.

I remember the communities I used to run used to have a respectable age range from 15-45 year olds all actively chilling and able to share experiences while having lego and upcoming sets as the uniting topic that brought us together. I remember so many nights where we would share stories about travel, cuisine and culture after an image or new set info would leak and thats the kind of thing that got me into leaks when I was an awkward and lonely teenager.

People started splitting when the toxicity of information and elitism started coming up, suddenly you were allowed to act like a pompous douche just because you had info no one else did? Its a mindset that still exists to this day even with the smallest leak. It astounds me how alot of these guys are roughly my age and yet haven't moved an inch in their personality after all these years.

Im at a stage where if I see the pictures, ill be happy but im not going to actively hunt or beg for them because eventually they come out and till then I have plenty of other things in life to keep me busy.

Look at me ranting about immaturity on a toy forum, I need to stop wasting my life on this shit. 

If you feel that way, take a step back away from all this and after some time has passed, ask yourself if you want to come back to it. That's what I did and now I only ever come to get my account removed/banned/post quote filled to change my name. Cant use my Internet name without people finding this on a Google search and this amazing forum doesn't have a basic account removal feature.
