Speak for yourself, I knew nothing of it until people mentioned it here. Where its not necessary to mention it. 

Therefore, not everyone knew about it. 

 

But good people and their good considerate nature towards other people never fail to do their bit for fandom and inform those lesser informed people to keep them up to speed whether they want to or not.... :thumbup:

Oh I agree fully. Deja vu for us two this is. I remember when we got shot down for arguing this case aswell. Surprised we both stayed on the forum.

Is it even still a spoiler if official merchandise like the black series figure outright confirms it?

It's a set discussion forum, we're discussing a set that has all of the bad batch except crosshair, as well as an imperial character with what looks like crosshair's helmet. They aren't really hiding it.

Oh come on. I love you bro, but this is wrong. Please be more considerate. Many people have no interest in black series; you’re trying to claim as if it’s some holy grail which everyone looks at to get info.

Good to know. For future reference, how do you do that on mobile?

Use {spoiler} *spoilery text* {/spoiler}, just with square brackets instead of the curly ones in my example :wink:

Higher-res pics of the ads are out from last night - It's still a bit blurry, but Echo definitely has arm printing :wub:

[Ahh, thank you for that]. 

Edit: how many other lies have I been told by the council! I must be doing it wrong.

It looks like Echo has the cybernetics printed on the front (and I'm almost sure - the back) of his head. There's also some kind of web-like design printed on the sides and the top of the cockpit. I wonder what that's about...

The 3d Model's texture appears to have a small web-like pattern on the panels, my guess is that this print is LEGO's interpretation of that style, and this makes me hopeful the red windows are printed too. I would be so stoked if there are no stickers on the shuttle.

Also I love all the detailed head prints. Can you see what his robot arm looks like, did they give him a gray hand?

I encourage everyone to use spoiler tags, but y'all also have to understand that if you come into a thread devoted to discussing upcoming Star Wars products you are going to come out of it with info about upcoming Star Wars products. That's the whole point. It's one thing to not want to see in-depth plot leaks that somebody's pulled from a Reddit thread or whatever, but the fact that

Crosshair is wearing a black uniform and the others are shooting at him

is plainly visible just from looking at the box. If you consider yourself 'spoiled' just from knowing the contents of an upcoming set, no amount of spoiler tags will make threads about upcoming sets good places for you to hang out.

I hope so too!

It's definitely just a normal light gray hand. I see a red stripe on the shoulder at the very least, but maybe there will be some mechanical detailing on the arm.too

Looks like the $30 retailer exclusive is a Mandalorian Forge...So, I guess that means the Armorer is coming? *huh*

Not sure of the credibility of the source but the rumor also says 3 figs so (speculation now), yeah, likely Mando and Armorer, and perhaps Paz with the Wrecker armor piece?

 

Also, a while back I speculated that they may create a Mando helmet with a stud on top for Gar Saxon's horns and that'd allow them to use the Black Panther ear piece for an Armorer figure - excited to see if that's what's happening.

Well this is random. Armorer and Mando are obvious, but who could the third figure be?

Probably a stormtrooper? Maybe the flametrooper? Honestly I really hope it's the flametrooper since we are already getting the mortar trooper. Really pleasantly surprised with this set, looking forward to the Armorer!

Imagine how cool would it be if Mando came without the Mudhorn print on his arm. That would make for an interesting variant actually.

It’ll probably just be the original Mando variant from the AT ST and RC. Watch them not put arm printing on the Gideon’s shuttle variant tho-

I completely agree, the box art clearly shows the "spoiler"

Guys, it doesn't matter if 90% of you know the "spoiler." Until 2 weeks after the show's release we ask that you use spoiler tags. It's the polite and considerate thing to do. That and it's a rule here. So stop breaking the rule.

I disagree that this constitutes a spoiler, but you're the mod, I'll use spoiler tags. Just out of curiosity, at what point would this be no longer considered a spoiler? We were able to talk about the child once his sets were leaked, so in the instance that 

Spoiler

The bad batch set pics label the figure as crosshair

are we able to talk about it then? Personally I feel that the box art (just looking at the set images, but just in case)

Spoiler

features a minifigure that at the very least clearly has crosshair's helmet fighting the bad batch on an imperial barc, and as such that alone really seems like we should be able to talk about it

, but even if that's not the case, surely the thing in the first spoiler tag would enable us to talk about it?

no way she isn't, I'm just hoping for a new mold or even printed horns, she would NOT work with saxon's horns.

most likely a stormtrooper or death trooper, but I'll say for Paz Vizla as a wild hope. Honestly we might not even get mando, just the armorer and two troopers, maybe with a set looking something like this:

Spoiler or not, our policy is to wait 1-2 weeks after a movie comes out or a show first airs before talking about details of the movie/show. This allows people to watch it on their own time table without worrying about having details spoiled. You can talk about details, but use spoiler tags for that first 1-2 weeks.

Ooh a way to get stormies that isn’t that expensive. Wouldn’t mind that in the slightest. It’ll probably be Mando and Armorer with a stormy to fight tho bc main characters sell well 🤷‍♂️

The Mandalorian Forge is a good set choice. I actually wouldn't mind if they skipped Mando out on this one in favor of getting both The Armorer and Paz Viszla. He wasn't in the battlepack or the upcoming Imperial Troop Transport so its not like he's required to appear in every set based on the show. I also like the suggestion of including the Incinerator Trooper.

Unbelievable that you guys keep doing this. How many times do we have to say that some of us don’t go looking into it as much as you? The majority of us just saw the clone wars episodes, saw the same characters in the trailer and thought “cool they’re back” and didn’t think anything of it, waiting to see the actual story.

Not to minimod but it’s the same people who do this every time. They’re not going to learn if there aren’t consequences. At the very least you should be removing the posts with the spoilers but they’re still there :(

You're probably right, can't remember if they did the Razor's Crest though...

Razor Crest could be preordered in other markets but not Australia

This Mandalorian Forge rumor is exciting! I really did not expect the retail exclusive to be something from Mando or TCW, but here we are. It’s something that I had on my wishlist for Mandalorian sets and here we are. I hope they don’t put in another Stormtrooper/Death Trooper in place of Paz Vizla though. I’ve been dying to get him as a figure. The Armorer is practically locked in and I think one of the two Din figures is likely. If we get Paz and The Armorer, then the only figures left from Season One that I would want are Kuiil, an Offworld Jawa and an Incinerator Stormtrooper.

I saw someone mention that Mando could have a silver helmet (may have been on insta I’m lowkey sleepdeprived so mods yell at me if need be) instead of the light grey they used for ToT. I’d love that but somehow I doubt they’d have the time or initiative to do a reskin simply because of the mild backlash from the weird color in ToT. It’s probably just going to be a reprint of either OG mando or ToT mando. Hoping for Paz Visla tho. With Wrecker’s armor and a jet pack attachment somehow, depending on what that piece looks like? (chef’s kiss)

I'd rather The Armorer had her horns printed on the helmet than her reusing Gar Saxon's helmet.

I really don't think that the set will include Blu Heavy Viszszszzla. Lego likes having an enemy in their Star Wars sets and I expect this is one that Mando would be in.

 I didn’t really like the backdoor pilot episodes in TCW and I fear that the whole show will be about protecting the kid in the trailer... recycling the plot from The Mandalorian isn’t a good sign when the biggest complaint on Star Wars for the last few years has been a lack of original stories.  

That's a really good point. I am hoping there is more complexity with the kid and that they don't just rehash the grogu plot. I want the story to be more about the kid becoming part of their team and stepping up to join them.

If done right the kid is a great way for younger viewers to get connected to the bad batch and invest in their story by identifying with the kid's POV which would be a nice change of pace from just oo-ing and awe-ing over Grogu. Grogu is a brilliant wellspring of future content and he is a character that will pay off huge down the line for lucasfilm since he's gonna live another thousand years and might be the next yoda-like guardian of the force, but for now he's mostly just cute. The kid in the bad batch looks old enough to have a fully formed personality and an arc through the show.

Sorry none of that was about legos, so I will also say that I really hope we get another bad batch era set with that kid, we don't get enough little star wars kid mini figs, anakin is the only one I can think of.
