What do you think the minifigure selection will be? Standard two, UCS Millennium Falcon or Minifigu Scale UCS? 

Considering its $800 and could go over 1000 in certain currencies I feel like they'd have to give more than the standard two. I'd expect Veers, 2 drivers, 2 snowtroopers. Maybe they'll throw in a Pilot Luke and make it the same as the Summer 2020 model but I doubt it. As the designers have emphasized this year UCS is about the model so I don't think we'll see anything special like a mustache rebel or snowspeeder pilot.

Yikes…$800 rumored price point for the AT-AT?

At that price, I’m wondering if it will actually be 1:1 minifigure-scale, or slightly scaled up (I hope not…).

I am wondering if it is minifig scale, since the current rumor is it will have the same or similar minifig lineup to last year's system-scale AT-AT. If that's the case, I would guess it'd have to be minifig scale, as most sets with figures simply for display only have one or two. Perhaps that would mean an interior as well? If I remember correctly, all other minifig scale UCS sets have at least three figures (Slave 1, Imperial Shuttle, Millennium Falcon), so maybe this will be minifig-scale UCS number four and follow suit.

Where did this current rumor about minifigs originate?

I hope that's the case for Paz Viszla in the Forge as well!

Not sure if that will be the case since then we’d see the same thing happen in the Cruiser set, and so far I haven’t heard anything about extra Darktrooper armour pieces :shrug_oh_well: 

Maybe it was a production error that only concerns the first production batch of the shuttle, a bad batch if you will *ba-dum-dish* :snicker:

Mini-fig scale would be enormous already- virtually no chance on that. Room for 50 mini figures and 4 speeders on board? Then scaled up even further? Don't think so. 

The gold standard for a reasonable walker design right now is probably Raskolnikov's Plus Sized At-AT. 2500 pieces, good interior, good pilot area, legs articulate, standing its at the same height as the UCS Slave on its stand, so it has a nice UCS presence. For 800 bucks I would hope the Lego version is a bit bigger (but not ridiculous) with the increase in price focused on better details and refinement, particularly on the interior. Maybe with a removable side like in the drawing below to show off the inside.   

However, I think there is an exception that folks will overpay for this. My fear is because of that they will do something like the last year's ISD, which was pretty disappointing (at least to me) in terms of overall details. There are just so many ISD MOCs out there that used much better and more modern technics. I was looking forward to that one so much, but ended up getting the Monarch instead. 

Let's hope they look to the Falcon for inspiration on quality of design.

I’m kinda leaning cavegod size as much as I’m desperately hoping its more along the lines of the brickvault one in size

AT-AT is big, but it’s not a whole millennium falcon tall and a whole millennium falcon long

Official pictures of the Mando Forge can be found at the usual place :thumbup:

The Mando hologram is a nice surprise!

And the unprinted helmet, though I think someone pointed that out back when the first images leaked. I was planning on waiting for a sale, but if this has 2 of paz's armor, I might end up getting it anyway.

"Moff Gideon, You have something I want. You may think you have some idea of what you're in possession of, but you do not. Soon, he will be back with me. He means more to me than you will ever know."

Would go well with Gideon's cruiser :grin:

Indeed. I wonder why it’s included here rather than in that set. Might be for budgetary reasons :shrug_oh_well:

Damn, the Mandalorian Forge is such an awesome set, definite day one buy!
I love the Mythosaur skull print above the door way, and the forge itself looks brilliant too.
The hologram is definitely a nice surprise, love it!

And it's available for pre-order on S@H!
I'll pre-order it coming sunday, together with ordering Moff Gideon's Light Cruiser :sweet: 

Regards,
Mitch

In season one the armorer has a mandalorian hologram when making the armor, so I think it's representing that, as it's the same size and it was also of the helmet, torso, and shoulder armor. The one at the end of episode 7 was comparatively larger and would work better on a 1x2x2 panel.

Don't get me wrong; I'm quite happy we get so many Mando figs - but isshhh that Armorer oO

Why do they always print the visor so low nowdays? With a better print and some shoulder piece (as they try to avoid cloth these days) the fig could have looked much better!
Also it's interesting they really didn'te recolour the Jetpack. Happy I still have the Jango one in silver

Mostly costomization can fix the issues! Any as said - happy to get more Mandos - even an unprinted helmet.

Great little build! Great details! What a great set overall.
 

It may have been unreasonable to expect some Damascus steel-looking beskar ingots, but dang, I was hoping they’d do it! Maybe one day?

I thought that the consensus was that minifigures in UCS sets don't matter and that we should mock anybody that disagrees. Flash forward to yesterday, and people were discussing the minifIgures in the AT-AT. Isn't the AT-AT a UCS set, so shouldn't we only be allowed to discuss the build and not the minifigures?

I'm not trying to "attack" anybody for their opinions - I'm just trying to point out the selective outrage :thumbup:

Well, you are welcome to discuss the build. What do you think of it?

 

The issue is people focusing only on the figures and being turned off a ucs set if they don't meet their requirements. The figures not being the focus of ucs sets does not negate the discussions of the theoretical line up.

Gunmetal ingot pieces work great. I think a marvel set recently had like 10 of them, so they're pretty cheap too.

The difference is that we're speculating what the figures could be instead of screaming and lamenting that mustache rebel isn't in the AT-AT. Minifigs aren't the point of a UCS set, we discuss it, but most people here agree that they aren't important enough to make a UCS set good or bad. The fan vote made it worse, because people who voted for the gunship were saying they weren't going to buy it because of the figures.

Oh my, this set is simply incredible. 

Minifigures are so well done. Paz Vizsla looks especially fantastic. 

The build is also amazing. So many details, I love the unprinted helmet and the hologram. Probably my favourite set of this year tbh.

I encourage people to discuss their differing opinions, and I don't think we should be harping on others for having the "wrong" opinions because it goes against the consensus of the vocal majority of this forum. An opinion is still an opinion, regardless of how many people agree with you. I don't care if someone thinks that the focus of UCS sets is the minifigures, the build, or a mixture of both. I just don't understand how a person not wanting to buy a set for themselves with their own money (regardless of the reasoning) affects everybody else's enjoyment of the set.

Sorry, I should have clarified this better. I was being hyperbolic. But my point is that since people are so adamant about the build being the focus of a UCS set, why are we discussing the minifigures and not the build?

Discussion about the figs in a ucs set is not what was annoying people. The relentless sentiment that minifig choice/ design are what make or break a ucs set was what annoyed people. Also the point has been made many times that minifig scale ucs sets tend to have more minifigs it is quite likely that an $800 AT-AT will be minifig scale. That being said, I got hoth figs out the wazoo, a snow trooper officer that matches the newer print would be the only fig I’d be particularly excited by.

Yes, the relentless sentiment does exist, but it's largely on social media and not on this forum. As I said, we're in an echo chamber. A few people comment about not liking the minifigure selection on here, and then everyone else starts ranting about the initial complaint when it wasn't a big deal in the first place. Also, even if people are relentlessly complaining, how does it personally affect you? 

I think I made my point, so I'm going to stop discussing it. I'm not here to micro-mod. I just wanted to put my thoughts out there. Feel free to agree or disagree.

How does people complaining about the complaining affect you? :tongue:

Jokes aside, no one's saying you're not allowed to complain, people are just pointing out how illogical and self-defeating it is to vote for a $350 UCS set and then not get it because it didn't have some figures that weren't in the scene, or because the commander is a different shade of orange/yellow than they wanted. And there were definately a good few comments on this thread about it...

I'm attempting to resist buying this immediately as I already got UCS slave one and the BB shuttle this summer...I'm so close to getting it, if it comes with a second set of Paz armor I may not be able to stop myelf.

Speaking of the BB shuttle... I got a notification that it reached warehouse and "should be reaching me soon". Don't tell lego, but they haven't charged me yet...  :laugh:
