Not really enough information to make a quality comment. Definitely not interested if it's OT based, would be cool if it's Boba Fett show related, but again no price point, no figure info or set info.

I mean the palace looks the same in the Prequels, swap Bib for a protocol droid add Dooku, Anakin, Snips and both the real and fake Rottas and bam the climax of the CW movie. Though the official Rotta is hard to come by so he might have to be a blob of green bricks. (though a new Rotta would be nice).

Yeah, but atm we don't know anything except that the palace is coming supposedly. This can be a tiny 30$ playset, 250$ MBS set, a small may the 4th promo vignette or a 1000$ UCS set. This makes it hard for me to comment on or to be excited about. I loved the mandalorian so if the same people are working on the Boba show and this is a Boba set i will definitely be happy to get and build while watching, but LEGO  sucked all the hope and joy i ever had in this world so i expect nothing or an OT remake that i will vote with my wallet against knowing that it won't change anything.

I reeaally hope that Jabba's Palace rumor is true. I've been kicking myself for missing the last one and I've been tempted to bricklink it lately. I had hopes we might get one next year for TBoBF so I definitely hope/expect it to be based on that with a nice throne for Boba. The question is, would it be a full palace like the last one or a small diorama display with Boba's throne and a couple of walls?

Yeah, I feel something like the Duel on Mandalore, or slightly bigger, with no exteriors, would be safe, taking also into account that the show is new.

I suspect we might get Jabba's Palace as the MBS set for next year, particularly if it's heavily featured in Book of Boba Fett. It could be similar to the Death Star featuring ANH and RoTJ scenes in that it allows you to recreate scenes from both the RotJ and BoBF timelines.

It's also possible we'll get a smaller throne set ala the ending featured at the end of Mandalorian Season 2 in January.

Not sure if this is the right place to ask... but, ive just ordered the razor crest and considering ordering the Slave 1 (boba fett starship). For anyone that has both, do they look good together? Or is the scale just too off? Dont want to get it if they arent going to look nice together. Any opinions would be great. Thanks.

Based on the episode where you see them both together I’d say the scaling will look off (Slave I being too small). The 20th Anniversary Slave I would probably be a better match up.

I feel like with these leakers, if they know it claim it... just say what you've heard and we can all move on.

 

But then they wouldn’t get to be part of the club who knows something we don’t and they can’t hold it over us.

Given their reluctance to do anything too heavy for anything not film related, I'd say with almost certainty that it will *not* be an MBS set, but just a small location style set, no bigger than the previous, but probably a bit smaller. Even if the possibility is there to do it linking both OT and BoBF, they just won't. 

Anyone pinning hopes on it being an MBS style set are setting themselves up for disappointment.

Well this star wars figure pack is quite frankly a incredible opportunity for Clone Troopers. It’s what the fans want, a solid clone trooper figure pack. It makes all the sense in the world to do it, storm troopers for it are acceptable as well in my eyes. If Lego doesn’t do either of them, it is just frankly Lego being tone deaf and out of touch once again.

I'd guess you're correct in that this winter set isn't an MBS set, there's no precedent for that at all, and that would be way too soon of a D2C release (assuming this AT-AT is indeed coming?), since it'd be squeezed in between the AT-AT and the Landspeeder, and we still have the Gunship, Cantina, and Falcon on shelves (and the A-Wing too?).  

If the pattern holds, we're supposed to get an MBS next fall (since we had Attack on Hoth, then the Tantive, then Cloud City, then the Star Destroyer, then the Cantina, and now the AT-AT, if my memory serves me correctly), which could certainly be Jabba's Palace or Sail Barge (if they go the OT route, which seems most likely, my money is on one of those two or an Endor Bunker set), but there is almost no chance we'd have that info already.  For whatever reason, the MBS stuff seems to take forever to leak - Cloud City wasn't confirmed until late summer of 2018, and the Cantina was supposedly an Imperial Shuttle until about August, so I would highly, highly doubt any leaks coming out are for MBS style since that would be a massive departure from the precedent we've had for a couple of years now.

Imo, I wouldn't beat myself too much for missing the jabba's palace. For a 2013 set the build is sort of really "basic" for it's time. I'll willing to bet lego's next version will do it tremendous justice.

I do hope we get another jabba's palace set, but I hope it won't be an MBS, but if it is i'm hoping that the number of MBS sets increase. Having one every two years with two consecutive ones being desert themed seems bland

Ah yes, the eternal wait for new versions of iconic clone wars vehicles. At this rate my children will be the ones to buy a venator at RRP. Can't believe it's approaching 10 years since the only set with a white phase 2 clone

Just opened the Duel on Mandalore, I always like LEGO releases non vehicles star wars set.  I wonder if they going to do more of these in upcoming sets.

I'm usually all for being open minded to believe that lego won't always stick to precedences that they've set and that they do go outside of them and change things up and do the unexpected, but this one is just too obvious that it won't be an MBS. Besides, as you point out, where would they squeeze it into? 

But it has got me wondering what the next MBS might be.

I equally love all the OT/PT and the sets for them (and the mandalorian), however I'm certainly on the same boat as wishing they'd do more PT for a bit as OT has had its share of the spotlight far more than necessary.

As a OT fan, I know that if I miss out on most sets, I can just wait for it to be re-released in probably at most one year. If I wanted an  AT-AT at any time, there's probably one on the shelves or one coming soon.

As a PT fan, some sets get regular re-releases like grevious' starfighter, but for other sets like a AT-TE, obi wan's fighter, or even something as basic as a white clone...well we all know (still waiting for another endor bunker as well :pir-cry_happy:)

According to how many support a new AT-AT get, for my it's obvious that the next MBS will be based on Hoth..

Interesting that no one has mentioned it, but we're getting Luke Skywalker's buildable lightsaber. An image of it leaked.

Apparently, it's a regular set (the box definitely looks like it). The image also comes from a retailer, which means it probably won't be a GWP nor a Lego exclusive. 

This might be the mysterious 75396 set.

Looks pretty cool!

I wonder how many of these they'll do. I feel like this is the sort of alternative SW set that will make a lot of people very happy. 

edit: the name is also interesting, with Luke also having the green saber. I guess they figured it would sell better this way as opposed to titling it Anakin's or (not trying to trigger anyone here...) Rey's :tongue:

Look at the GWP for the Nou Camp set, that came in a proper box.

Isn't star destroyer supposed to be gwp with UCS AT-AT? 

I'm going to find it disappointing if it is a gwp in any case - this would make a great lightsaber series, like helmets, with which we could expect some variety and quantity. If lightsabers are only going to be handed out as gwps this means we'll get way less of them and in longer intervals

The Star destroyer rumor never made any sense….this makes soo much more sense
