It may be accurate to ESB but the figure is based on the Mandalorian and the freshly repainted armor which is consistently dark green on the helmet, jetpack and torso. I feel like LEGO should have picked one color or the other because as it is the figure is jarringly inconsistent color-wise. As far as the jetpack goes, I guess that's true but if there's any character that deserves a unique jetpack mold, it's Boba. Hell, I'd be happy with them bringing this piece back in an appropriate color and adding a couple other pieces to give it the proper tall missile. Minifigure Jet Pack with Nozzles and Stud

At least, if they didn’t want to produce Mandalorian helmet in new color, they could give him green helmet + new print, because they produced that helmet in green for Mandalorian battle pack. And green would work better for repainted Boba than sand green, IMO.

Ming Na Wen posted the leaks on her twitter, surprised the Lego/Disney snipers haven't got her or the person she retweeted yet

Sniping a sniper ain’t easy :tongue: Besides, TLG leaked the catalogue themselves, so going after people who reposted it doesn’t seem worthwhile to me

Isn't this like the 2HY catalogue? Lego's 2HY started 6 days ago, so it definitely should be officially out :tongue:

Not a leak I'd say, it's just Lego being stupid again (just like with Eternals).

I guess the set they'll reveal will be a UCS / D2C set, as it would be pretty underwhelming to reveal like a single The Mandalorian set.

The next UCS set we know of is the Gunship. So I guess it's just 2o days until wee see it :excited:

I would temper expectations that the Gunship reveal is at Lego Con...

Yes, standard green might actually be the best choice since the details would be washed out on dark green, especially with a printed black visor and dark green cheeks. Either would have been better than sticking with sand green though. I really don't know what they were thinking.

Overall I'm just happy we actually get a new Boba instead of just the old one, as it was reported by leakers and as we all expected.

And best of all: one of not many SW figures with arm printing (so far only Greedo, 3x Boba, Vader, 3PO, 2x Wookies, 1x FO officer, 2x Maul, Bescar Mando as far as Im aware of)

But yeah, would have been cool to get dark green helmet. It's hard to say and depends on the versions of the movie/lighting anyway what kind of green Bobas armor is anyway. To me the ESB version always looked like a matt dark green in general.

Hmmm…that means that either it could be just a tease, but lego themselves have said that they will reveal a Star Wars set…that must mean it’s something else. It’s probably too early for the AT AT, so the question then stands, what could be important enough for them to reveal there?

If not the as-yet-unknown 75369, I'd say either the forge or Gideon's cruiser.

Could be the 2hy d2c (AT-AT, right?), the armorer's forge, or even something they managed to keep secret from most leakers.

Unless that additional set of which we know nothing about is something that special and warrants a reveal as advertised, not revealing the UCS Gunship then would really be an extremely stupid idea. And the AT-AT wouldn't make sense if it releases later.

Does anyone else think it's possible that he haven't seen all the advent calendar minifigs? All the minifigs rumoured were in the catalogue picture (and usually they keep one or 2 hidden from such pictures) and they're aren't as many figs as usual even if we count Grogu as a minifig. Also the marvel colander from the same catalogue doesn't show all it's figs... maybe they're could be another minifig? maybe even a new one, like Cobb Vanth or something, it wouldn't be the first time we get 2 new figures with a calendar, marvel's one comes with Christmas iron man  and a new jacketed spiderman, and there was the one with both poe and Vader in Christmas jumpers. 

Also an unrelated question... Have we seen the back of the wrecker armour? Cause if had a stud (or another useful connection point) then it could be used for Paz, and attach a brickbuilt jetpack at the back.

I'm not sure it would be stupid, we still haven't had a leaked release for it as far as I know. For all we know it could be coming in September with the AT-AT in like November, in which case it would probably be revealed around the last week of August. UCS sets are rarely revealed or even leaked more than two or three weeks in advance.

Suppose it could be sets we have already "seen" from last weeks leaks...that would be less than ideal. Moreso that we have seen those and not much new information (could be more set / figured details that we have not seen yet).

Possible but I doubt it would be a new one. I think advent calendars are limited to 2 new printed pieces and Mando and Grogu already use that up. As much as Cobb Vanth would have been a perfect choice (Similar to Antoc Merrick a few years ago) I doubt we will get him.

That's true. But what other set would make sense to be hyped up for the reveal like this? Hey, look at this exclusive 30$ Forge, the 4th set to feature your favorite character - Beskar Mando. And if you preorder now, you'll get this amazing farm boy Luke polybag, you know, cause the game won't release anytime soon and we have to get rid of these. Jokes aside, honestly, I'm really curious to see what they have planned for this. 19 days to go I guess :shrug_oh_well:

I think 2 studs are visible in one promo picture of the set.

Unfortunately - I would have liked a "clean" piece; similar to the 2 armor pieces ninjago has given us in the last few years. I think the piece used for Wrecker is just too similar to the Galaxy police piece.

but yeah - brick built jet pack ahoi - the question is just how to build a jetpack with two studs? I have many brick built jet packs that Im proud of; but they are all with 1 stud connection.

If it's not a D2C, then we have 3 options:

1. One of the August The Mandalorian sets, which leaked some time ago.

2. Mandalorian Armory.

3. 75369, the unknown set we know is coming.

1x2 plate, two 1x1 clips, two lightsaber handles. Voila.

Honestly, I think the Cruiser would be a prime target for a reveal. It's big, it's impressive, it's got three exclusive figures, it's been in the works for two years. It's no gunship, but it would make sense. Which annoys me because it means we'll probably have to wait another three weeks :hmpf_bad:

Promobricks just published a story on LEGO Con today with the title "LEGO CON 2021: Presentation of the UCS Gunship is coming!" Are they off? They didn't guarantee it, but sounded pretty confident the Gunship will be the revealed set.

I think there are more characters, but I doubt they've got new prints. That said, Mando's scarf print could work for Cobb IMO.

Are people really complaining about beskar mando? He's going to be in most mando sets for the same reason that spider-man is in most spider-man sets, and he's a great figure. (Plus every copy of him I get is a new pair of arms to put on a printed-arm-lacking other mandalorian character.

You can just use a jumper plate.

In general, I prefer the armor parts to have stud connections where it makes sense. Allows for more customization and makes it look more like actual legos.
