I think the Ahsoka VS Maul set isn't getting talked about enough. This will probably be the best duel set. I wonder if the Darth maul will be a repeat of the crimson dawn one without the necklace?

Hopefully they at least keep Maul's face print from the Crimson Dawn figure. It easily the best design they've done for him to date.

I don’t think anybody is talking about the Mandalore Duel because we got Ahsoka last year, but hopefully this one will actually be available in Australia after day 1 unlike the AAT. I’m most excited for the Mando fighter, I’ve wanted a Bo-Katan figure since her debut all those years ago. Also keen for Gideon’s cruiser, love the big ship builds and Gideon is probably my favourite character out of anything Disney has produced with the Star Wars licensed. Really hoping Cara Dune didn’t get axed from it if only for the fact that it’ll really piss off the vocal minority. Planning on grabbing the whole wave sans the Slave I provided that Australia actually gets stock.

I feel like getting them day 1 is a thing in Australia as retail barely have any to buy most times these days.

It’s a set that I’m looking forward to.
I hope Maul uses the demogorgon's legs, but I don't think it's going to happen. The set will also have the prison in which Maul is. Maybe a new mold in the same genre as carbonite ?

Why would he use those legs though? He has perfectly "normal" legs in S7. Ideally, they would be dual molded but one can only dream.

I also thought about the prison cell thingy. Since this would be the smallest duel set by piece count (147), making that out of bricks wouldn't leave much for the throne room itself. And considering how bulky it would need to be to fit an entire minifigure, I'm really curious to see if they went ahead with a new mold. It definitely is a set I'm really looking forward to seeing!

Yeah I’m thinking the same. Here’s hoping they don’t shaft us with the exchange rate again because I really dislike paying the full retail price for system sets. Might just go through s@h or a certified store for a change to get the points and be done with it. Just a little hesitant since I want to get the gunship and AT-AT too, also didn’t pick up the new helmets and probe yet either (opted for the 66 batmobile and 66 robin off of bricklink instead). 

Feeling a little backwards this year as I’ll normally go for the D2Cs day 1 and hold out on the system sets, but as of late the D2Cs are the ones that are consistently in-stock. There’s clearly an abundance of the cantina here since it’s already being discounted by all major retailers.

I'm so megablocking excited for the Mandolorian fighter. But they're probably gonna change the color from white to light grey.

Me too. I'll be ready to buy the set just for his miniatures. I have been waiting for Gar Saxon and Bo katan figures for years.

Does anyone think there is a shot the BB shuttle will seat 4?

The body of the ship will fit two if its a similar design to the lambda from march but the cockpit is bigger than the lambda and looks better designed, watching JANGs review of the lambda, he was of the opinion that cockpit could have easily fit two figures with a better build. Does anyone think this cockpit has been reworked to fit two, or maybe one and the gonk. It would just be nice to have a shuttle that can actually hold the team, but that green speeder makes me suspicious that it will only fit 3.

Tech has that huge backpack so maybe there isn't room up front and he is intended to be the pilot and take up all the space.

There are only 3 places in the shuttle, one in the cockpit and the other 2 places at the back of the ship. I know this from other leaks from this ship.

Oh, I see. I haven't seen any of those leaks yet, so I assumed it was still up in the air. Bummer, but good to know.

Someone on the LSW subreddit found a bunch of links to pre-set product pages for the summer wave, and it looks like the Vader Meditation Chamber is only going to be $50 and the AT AT is confirmed. 

The website with "links" is literally my rumors from January just... written on a website.

Ha, Yeah that list didn't seem official.

Love your channel BTW. You and Jang are my go-to reviewers. I'm looking forward to this summer wave. I do really hope we get official BB shuttle pics on the 4th so I can finally confirm how many figs fit in the shuttle.

How long do you think the Summer 2021 sets will be in stock in Australia? I ask this because most of the 2020 summer sets (501st BP, AAT, Knightbuzzard, IT-S Transport, Final Duel) are just gone from most retailers and I want to know whether I should wait for sales to get the sets I want or to buy them all to be safe.

You said Vader was going to be $70 but I digress.

I’m buying them day one to be safe and I’m in America. I can only imagine the chaos that will be Australia.

I tried looking for the original video about the leaks but I think the channel of this mandy products persona is gone. As far as I understood there were some people just taking the info and making their own videos but the details of descriptions were different from the original leaks video.

It's crazy - here in Germany SW sets used to be available for around 2 years, some much longer. Some bigger and smaller sets last year were gone before the summer wave released. Some didnt even appear. And I am talking about the big toy stores. Lego shelves have become super big for some years and within 2-3 years they have become smaller then they were ever since I can remember. I think the market might just be jaded with Lego which is a very bad sign for the future of our favourite hobby.

I got 501st BP, Knightbuzzard and Final Duel all at 20% off or better near release, so if you're a little patient you should be able to pick up this year's "Summer wave" at a discount before they disappear. FYI ATAT is available right now on Amazon for 33% off and they still have the Nightbuzzard almost 20% off too.

It seems after Xmas supply tends to drop off a bit on some of these sets but if you buy before then you should be ok.

If the past few years are any indication they’ll be in stock for no more than 2 hours, if that. If you want them you’ll need to grab them ASAP.

If you can buy them, not too fussed about some price point go for it. Each to their own I guess.

It looks like Lego has put some effort in to their supply issues here. The summer 2021 wave seems to be mostly available where I am, at least online. In addition, the helmets and probe droid are still available at s@h and the only out of stock set is the 501st. 75257 is also hanging around for a long time for anyone that doesn’t have Boolio.

It is still probably a good idea to get the winter sets as soon as they’re available. Another issue may be that sometimes non-movie sets have a limited distribution(eg. 75262, 75254, 75280). Therefore the Mandalorian fighter might be hard to find as it’s more obscure than an X-wing or Slave I.

New Bad Batch Promo - The Havoc Marauder is in it for the first couple of seconds and it definitely looks sand blue to me. There's also some gray on it too so maybe it did get a paint job?

Would really love some Jedi spirit characters...

I think you're confusing winter waves and summer waves. The winter wave is the January wave (winter in the northern hemisphere) and the summer wave is the August/September wave (summer in the northern hemisphere

They’re not confusing them, they’re just going by the seasons here in Australia. Just go with the flow mate, we Aussies always gotta do a bit of mental gymnastics when someone posts a price in USD or some other currency and we never ask anybody to change up they way they talk.

I feel like they have to be imminent. There have been so many great methods introduced to potentially make “ghostly” minifigures. The blue hues on Moaning Myrtle last year, the glow-in-the-dark Peeves this summer, and translucent minifigure parts.

Translucent arms have been around since Electro and Jek-14, and one of the Ultra Agents and some China figs had a translucent leg. But now there are multiple Vidiyo band mates with both legs translucent. LEGO has plenty of options at their disposal.
