There appears to be a leaked catalog page showing some Technic sets in pretty good quality as well. If the catalogs are starting to show up in the wild, could this mean we will be seeing pictures sooner rather than later?

I would hope so. There have been some prelims for a while, given that MandR and others specifically said they were looking at images. I imagine they’re in that catalog featuring the Technic sets as well.

Solid Brix just dropped a video based on an exclusive interview with Lego SW designers. 

As for this year's releases, Gunship info will drop mid-summer.

It’s only 5 minutes long so probably worth the watch but here’s the TLDW

1) Battle Packs are coming in the future. No specifics as to when only that they’re not dead.

2) LEGO does not look at aftermarket prices of minifigures to determine what figures to make, instead working from the questions “Have we done it before? If yes, how can we make it better?”

3) Gunship info coming specifically “mid summer”, speculated be July or August

 

my thoughts:

1) duh. Glad this argument can finally be laid to rest. They were a staple of the lineup for 14 years and the current ones are clearly selling well, they were never going anywhere 

2) Probably the biggest news from this. Maybe having heard that question they will take note of the ludicrous prices of some figures and reproduce them. Really hope the designers take this one to heart and do something about it. Anything to shaft those selfish money hungry POS who decide to send a figure “to the moon” by buying literally all the stock available. 

3) just confirmation of what we already knew. I get why they don’t show photos but they could at least tell us the price of the set in the different markets, this interview would’ve been a perfect opportunity to do that. Would love to be able to accurately budget these things ahead of time instead of working off of uncertain conversions of rumoured American prices.

If this is the case, wouldn't that mean we could expect the AT-AT to be released sometime probably late in the Fall, or is it just the info of the Gunship that would be releasing Mid-Summer? I always have been under the impression that a UCS info release is shortly before the actual release.

Turns out, surprise surprise, @MandRproductions was full of shit on the CMF thing. Cue three pages of argument on the subject and the mods locking the thread.

So shocked (sarcasm). Ever since he got kicked out of LAN, he seems to hate Lego Star Wars fans with his trolling and lies.

I'm glad to hear they aren't scrapping Battle Packs just yet :excited:

Very glad Battle Packs aren't dead as well. What are some people's dream battle packs? Any remakes you'd all like?

Stormies, but that’s just bc I got really hard into the Imperials recently. ARC troopers. More mandalorians that aren’t neon colors. Battle droids. FOR THE LOVE OF THE FORCE BATTLE DROIDS. You cannot release 6 clone troopers in a wave and only four battle droids. That’s ridiculous. Battle droid armies are meant to outweigh the clones by orders of magnitude because of how they were produced.

Leaving insults out of it, can you share what exactly he was wrong about and where you got this information?

Oh where to start? Endor Rebels, Hoth forces, Fleet Troopers, Phase I & Phase II Plain Clones, Battle Droids, 327th Star Corps, and Galactic Marines, Death Watch, the list is remarkably long.

Lies! Deception! :head_back: The guy with an obvious hate b*ner for TLG lied to sic his obnoxious fanbase on them? I‘m flabbergasted, I tell you :laugh_hard:

Glad to hear that BPs aren‘t dead yet :thumbup: Let‘s hope they return next winter in full force!

They already do, no need for a BP unless it includes something interesting like a new variant or a super tactical droid :tongue:

Oh, but it is! :laugh: Doubt we'll see it in a set until 2022 at the earliest though.

Of course he was, half his stuff is clickbait.

The battle packs are the best news I've had in a while...

So much potential now with all the shows coming up.

Nice to see Battle Packs aren't dead, though I'm still hesitant we'll ever get a full on Clone one any time soon considering how well a 30$ set sold with 4 in it. I think the Rebel Fleet Troopers or standard B1/B2 Droids need a new BP the most.

I don't understand hate towards MandR,he said LEGO stopped making battlepacks for now which they did,he never said they won't make them ever again.
He is right about LEGO selling minifigures too,it's really weird how other companies can make figures,but lego can't. Just look up Kubricks Star Wars figures,hot toys,star wars miniatures etc,also how can LEGO individually sell 20th anniversary Obi ? Or make figures in magazines without builds? Your opinion of him on the side,something is really off here,LEGO designers say 1 thing and proof + logic says the other..

I am super happy they will make battlepacks again,those sets are my favorites cause i love army building and ton of kids can get into LEGO cause of it's price like i did when i was a kid.

20th anniversary Obi had a build included (the stand) and the magazine extras are just that: extras. What you actually pay for is the magazine. Besides, it's in the contract, what more proof do you need? :tongue:

Also, as I said when this came out, it would make literally no financial sense for them to not sell these figures by themselves.  By all accounts, the HP ones sold really well (at least, based on how people here talk about them, they were very popular) and SW is even more character-driven than that.  As long as they didn't go the DC route and go too obscure on some of the characters, they'd be flying off the shelves.  Can you imagine if they stuck in a P2 Rex or something?  It'd be annoying as hell to find, because inevitably the "resellers" would be buying all of them and selling for $20 each, but it'd at least drive the price down on the secondary market ones.

Figures from companies like Hot Toys, Kubricks, Funko and Sideshow are intended to be collectibles for display by older collectors, not toys to be played with by kids. And from what I recall they all still had to go through Hasbro first before they were approved to sell Star Wars merchandise.

After a few episodes of the Bad Batch, have opinions changed on the Lego set?

I'm very glad that Gonky is included, I'll say that much!

 I wasn't really interested when the descriptions of it leaked, I became more interested when the show premiered, and I do really love the figures and the design looks good.  I feel like if it goes on discount on Amazon or at Target or something I might end up getting it, especially because previous iterations of main ships from TV shows (the Twilight, the Ghost) have only been made once.

Was going to say this in my prior comment, too.  It's a totally different market, as none of those figures are really playable, and some of them, if I'm not mistaken, are almost $100 each (I think the Sideshow or Gentle Giant busts are super expensive, if I remember correctly?).  On the subject of Funkos, from what I gather, too, the reason the SW ones are bobbleheads and have display bases, whereas all of the other Funko toys are just stagnant figures was because they might quality as action figures?  I'm not positive on that, but that was what I saw somewhere.

I'll get a copies of all the different contracts each company has so we can really parse it out.:devil:

In the meantime, 2021 sets, eh?
