Amory looks great, Mando gets his jetpack! Also, I really like the blaster and build for Paz. Looks great and the use of the "buff-up" piece that was used for the Dark Trooper and Wrecker.

 I don't think that the angle does the Armorer's helmet justice, but these minifigures look so good! Easily one of the best waves ever 😁

I've done this with my Mando minifig personally

 

Wow could you maybe post a picture of the cape "spread out"? I pushed away doing the same with a spar black cape for some time now - shouldn't be too hard but I think you nailed it!

set leak: I'm so happy finally that we got such decent images as leaks!

At least from the picture I think the Armorer helmet looks a bit like a knockoff. What I really miss are finer printed details on helmets - some Mando helmets look a bit comica. But still Im very happy we get such obscure side characters. And I don't have to use a golden knight helmet anymore.

Cool also that Paz really does use that shoulder piece. Might have been designed for him.

Interstingly the jetpack looks gun metal grey to me - I wouldn't mind but I'd be sad for some people who don't own any Jango Fett.

oh that was exactly my suggestion before :pir_laugh2:
naja looks really good anyway.


anyway - so far we have gotten Mando helmets in:

standard green, sand green, white, silver - Boba, Mando and Jango
dark azur, standard green, light grey, dark orange - Mando battle pack
gun metal grey and grey - TCW and gun metal grey also for Mando's first version

And now it looks like standard blue (or again dark azur), again gun metal grey, black/red, gold and sand blue will be added :pir-huzzah1:

Oof, Armourer looking rough. Printed horns on a normal Mando helmet would've looked better. And the bad angle strikes again! Everyone looks like they have a massive forehead.

Damn, The Armorer and Paz look fantastic!
Can't wait to get my hands on that set, even if the build is crappy.

Also, is there any indication where Crosshair's head will appear? I wasn't aware another Bad Batch set was in the works...

Mitch

Crosshair's head is from the shuttle. Someone got it early :)

I think The Armorer and Paz are looking pretty slick even if the angle isn't doing the former any favors. I like the selection of figures in that set a lot, so that's probably a snag.

I've only seen the figures (don't know if the whole set leaked), and they look brilliant!

Sure, the Armorer's horns should be gold, but I like the contrast. And printing them would've looked a lot worse. This is more visually appealing.

Paz is excellent, hoping the set comes with his rangefinder, but if not, I've got plenty spares.

Actually, the horns appear to be (dark) metallic grey on comparison pictures, so I'd say that's pretty accurate :thumbup:

Paz looks fantastic. I think the eye holes are printed too low on the Armourer's helmet though, it makes it look like she has a bit of a fivehead.

I agree with the vast majority. Amorer and Paz are absolutely fantastic! Horns in particular are exactly what is needed!

:laugh_hard: I might steal this one

The armourer and Paz look great :thumbup: And looks like they found a way around the cape & jetpack problem: not including the former at all :head_back:

OP may know this, but for those who don’t, the Italian word for lawyer is l’avvocato, from the Latin Advocatus! So Devil’s Avocado is not that far off!

This mandalorian (the people not the show) minifigure wave has me more excited than any wave in recent memory, love Paz.

The Armorer looks great, the helmet works perfectly. And yes, the horns are actually black in the source material. She should've her fur tho, she looks incomplete without it.

Paz is amazing, nothing more to say. Love it.

I also hare how Mando's jetpack is darker than rest of his armour, in the series it's clearly the same colour.

Is there something that could be MOC'd to make the fur?

I’m not convinced they changed the Slave 1’s figure selection in the last minute :tongue:People say that potential storage space for Carbonite Han would be proof of that. I say there could be proof to the contrary: if there’s a feature to drop seismic bombs, then by the same token the set must’ve always been intended as a Mando tie-in :grin:

Not sure what happened with the prelim info anyway, the rest was accurate to a tee after all. Either a misdirect or a wrong placeholder (anyone remember the prelim Cato Parasitti minifig that stood in for Sugi in the 2011 1HY catalogue?)

Oh man, I hope it has a seismic bomb drop feature! I'm so sick of cargo holds for Han in carbonite. It could have storage space for weapons instead though. 

I love the figures of the Armorer and Paz Visla! Sadly I was right about them omitting the cape for Din entirely. I really wish they gave the Armorer a fluffy collar piece, heck they gave one to the Ranger Troopers in the Solo train set even though they appeared for 5 seconds...

I look forward to seeing the forge. Hopefully it has a hammer and tongs for the Armorer to use as weapons and I expected it with have some sort of smithing play feature.

Also, Crosshair's face leaked and it looks pretty good.

There will absolutely be sets to tie into tBoBF. It's one thing for LEGO to not want to take a risk on a new series with new characters like the Mandalorian until after it airs and then realize it's insanely popular, it's another entirely when a new series is being made for a legacy character people already know, especially someone with the inherent popularity and insane marketability of Boba Fett. Now they may only do one or 2 sets to start based on what little info and concept art they get and do more sets after the show ends like they did with the Mandalorian, but I don't think LEGO is stupid enough not to cash in on tBoBF. 

Agree, also with Mando acting as a soft pilot of sorts for the show, it's way less risky.  In addition to Boba being a popular character, people have already been introduced to Fennec Shan and seem to like her as a character, and people have been mostly satisfied (from what I've seen, at least) with Boba Fett being brought back and the way that he's been handled.

Even last year, it was also kind of screwed up, we thought the X-Wing was only Luke and R2-D2, we ended up getting two more figures, and the placeholder image for the TIE showed the silhouettes of the figures from Luke's Landspeeder, prompting a huge discussion about what figure could possibly be included in the set that featured short legs (evidently that was a picture of a Jawa).  I think it's possible that the info was either wrong or it had placeholder silhouettes for two figures and someone made an assumption that the non-Boba figure was just Han (since obviously you know one of the figures is confirmed as Boba Fett).

Set 75369 is a retail exclusive then, I take it (if it's still coming that is)? Because if it wasn't, its minifig selection would have leaked too, unless it doesn't feature any :tongue:

Crosshair's faceprint looks excellent btw, good to see they went the extra mile and gave all of them the unique faceprints they deserve :thumbup:

Someone's posted a picture in the usual place of a caped figure as a suggestion of what could be used for the Armorer. The cape itself is a bit longer than hers, but the front looks like it would work to me!

edit: Legonoki is the person who posted the pic/suggestion.

Why would a set originally intended to be TESB-themed feature them?

Well, I don't know why, but the one from 2006 (6209) does have them, so that definitely isn't definitive even if it doesn't make a lot of sense.

If the Armory figures are in the back of the Shuttle instructions, then it likely also has HD pics of the rest of the wave's figs. Hopefully that means better pics soon!

Huh, you're right! Totally forgot about that feature, even though I have that set :blush:
