LEGO Star Wars 2021 Set Discussion - READ FIRST POST!!!

Recommended Posts

Other than Jabba's palace posse and the imperial dignitaries, another OT based figure I'd like to see would be some baby ewoks from the but where 3po is telling the story.An  Ewok battle pack sounds good to me.

I was hoping we'd see more Bad Batch sets this wave, and maybe we still will but so word of any yet it seems.

People are expecting 9516 but we’ll probably get 4480.  Not that there is much difference between the two now that I think about it.

Yep. The disdain for these sets when none of them have been released, no photos have been leaked, and the titles aren't even final feels a little petulant. 

See it from my POV, you grow up watching episode 1 (1999), episode 2 (2002), clone wars (2003), episode 3 (2005), the clone wars (2008-2020), rebels (2014-2018), the force awakens (2015), rogue one (2016), the last jedi (2018), solo the star wars movie (2018), rise of skywalker (2019), the mandalorian (2019-) and The Bad Batch (2021). While you didn't enjoy episode 8 or 9 you loved everything else. With all that in mind see the rumored sets for next year: EP5 battlepack, EP5 AT-ST, 2x EP5 Helmets, EP5 Yoda's Training, EP4 Landspeeder, EP4 Death Star Battle.
Ofc i have instant disdain, nothing they put inside will interest me in the slightest. Not my childhood, not my star wars. I understand people are different and they like different things and it makes me happy that some people are excited about the next year, but it's just depressing to me especially since the same thing happened last year.

You can quote me on that, just saying. Still doesn’t change my opinion on him, he clearly knows something we don’t and we know he gets off on holding it over us. 

Yeah, but why do you hate his fans for pointing out the truth and connection? If he leaks sets he is an %$/&, if he doesn't he is an %$/& that holds it over us, if he complains about the set he is an %$/&, if he doesn't point out the flaws he is an %$/& . Can this dude catch a break? He is on youtube since he was a 12 year old child ofc he will say and do stupid stuff like all of us did, but this amount of hate where he is hated if he does 1 thing and hated if he does the other is just ridiculous.

Looking at the rumoured lists, I am hoping the other stuff will be Disney+ material as well...

Right now for the sake of diversity I would take anything from any of the following (I know it's wishlist territory):

The High Republic - if we can get a Galaxies Edge set why not...

The Knights of the Old Republic - they made TOR sets, battlefront, TFU so go there... Revan's minfig costs $$$

He'll even Marvel comics material.

Just something new and not a heap of OT rehashes... I like Mos Eisley, it was a great play set but no more sandcrawlers, Landspeeders, cantina scenes for a couple of years please.  There's plenty between PT, ST and D+ as well as RO to cover off.

Licensees follow the money. We got a Galaxy's Edge set because Disney committed to tens of millions of dollars in marketing spend to promote the park, essentially free advertising for any products related to it. And if I'm not mistaken, the set was meant to be an exclusive, only available at the park... until COVID mucked things up and the exclusives all got re-routed to Target...

I think having the Dark Side Cave scene with Luke versus Vader in the Yoda's Training set would be superb, it's a key scene in Empire and one that we haven't had before, to my knowledge.

I'm excited for these rumors to learn more. I wish more PT stuff/TCW material but still waiting for more info. 

W.R.T. MandR's potential leak scheme. I think it is nice that we are getting the word out in a coded way (if true, which appears to be so). Sure there are controversies, but can we appreciate and be thankful as a community for what we do have? It's not perfect and likely never will be. But we have something that brings us together for sharing or love of LEGO and appreciation of its diversity (PT-OT-ST). 

Cheers all and have a good day/night.

Counter point, can people stop bringing up everything he does in this thread? I don’t watch his videos but it feels like I know about it all because people keep name dropping him here, in a thread meant for set discussion. He’s not providing us set info we’re not getting from other sources so why does he keep coming up? He’s a YouTube personality, this thread doesn’t need to chronicle his every move.

Yeah my guess is it's basically just the credits shot from the Mando finale. The throne and steps, Fat Bib, Fennec with hair and Repainted Boba, maybe a veryyyy small side build.

The fact it is based on a new show (even if it's Boba's) also makes me think the set will be small ($30), instead of the $100 one. Personally I hope that's the case (a cheaper way to acquire new Boba fig). But who knows, maybe there are two Palace sets who can connect, since the two previous Jabba's Palace LEGO sets had multiple sets which connected to each other.

 

Also, when Yoda's training set was revealed, I remembered of a Just2good podcast, where Jangbricks was talking about over saturation of sets and said "I like the new X-Wing. But please Lego, don't make a Dagobah version of it next year!" I guess Lego understood it the other way around! (You can see at 30 min).

Nah bro. It’s all relevant. Get over it. You don’t get to dictate what goes on in this thread, nor do I. 
 



Are we now only missing 3 sets from the wave, or is it less? Cheers

Just the 3 I think, one of which seems to be Boba’s Palace / Throne. 

Holding out for a Bad Batch set, please Lego..

Oh please no, there are already 2 X-wings on the shelves right now (Poe's and 2021 version) we don't need one more! 

Is Yoda's training confirmed to be Degobah or is that still just conjecture?

Just conjecture I think. Someone knows, but nothing definitive has been said in this forum.

Hopefully there’s a bad batch set in there.You could do a lot minifig wise with the imperial attack shuttle which seemed to be the most predominantly used ship in the show and would hit the $60-80 range.

This would be a perfect way to include a pretty satisfying cast of characters. Elite Squad Troopers, regular clones, Rex etc. However, I can see Lego avoiding another tri-wing shuttle when we’ve already had the Havoc Marauder and Lambda-class Shuttle this year alone.

Are the three sets really all that‘s left? Pretty weird wave with only one MF and one BP :shrug_oh_well:

So far there's:

UCS Landspeeder

Boba Fett's Palace

Hoth AT ST

Yoda's Training

Death Star Battle

Helmet 1 (AT AT Driver?)

Helmet 2 (Mandalorian or Rebel Pilot)

Snowtrooper BP

Razor Crest MF

Figure pack 1

Figure pack 2

Luke skywalker's lightsaber (GWP)

 

Four regular system sets was what we got last year (X wing, TIE, Shuttle, and trouble on Tatooine. The three other sets are presumably another MF and a BP, and maybe a 4+ set or third MF set.

Yep, definitely can see your point of view. I grew up with my favorite Star Wars being AotC :sweet:, which has since changed to ESB. Still, I enjoy watching the prequels and would love seeing more system scale/UCS sets from those movies. I can see the disappointment, but I guess I take a long view with this stuff. Prequel stuff isn't "in" right now, but I have to think those sorts of sets will have a breakthrough sooner than later. So, I'm willing to wait and see what this next year is like before making a call, prequel or not. And if this year's sets are a snooze, more money for the better (hopefully) PT/OT sets down the road (not a fan ST, but that's just me).

I believe the helmet sets are meant to come out in April but are being moved up to make the wave more robust. Also Covid production issues are now more behind us so more lego in Jan and no mini-march wave.

However the fact theirs 3 sets left and none rumored areBad Batch does not bode well for the D+ shows this year. I'm holding out hope but it does not seem to be following the mandalorian run of sets.

Also the chances of Kotor sets is not all gone since lego gaming is now a thing and it would fit under that theme as well as SW.

To be honest I'm not expecting to see much more from the Bad Batch. There's only so many sets they can release and I imagine the focus next year will primarily be on Boba Fett, Andor and Kenobi.

It was indeed a new minifig, but I wouldn’t call it “exciting”, personally :grin:

These are all 1HY rumours :classic:

Speak for yourself, I've wanted ranking rebels for forever. Still hoping for a home one cruiser sometime, partially so we can get mothma and/or madine.

No, we've even had leakers hint it's more exciting in response to all the "ugh it's OT" comments, so it might not be dagobah at all.

Keep in mind the minifig packs which honestly might just be BP replacements.

Keep in mind that Mando only had 2-3 sets origionally planned, one of which being a battle pack that, given the colors, honestly seemed closer to TCW or Rebels, and that Bad Batch, while a good set, is nowhere NEAR as popular as mando. They'll wait to put stuff out until they can ride season 2 hype.

If I'm interpreting the info correctly, I don't think these two are January wave sets.

The Landspeeder is supposedly the May UCS (which fits the pattern, those tend to be the oversized vehicles, and also it would be way too soon to put out a UCS in January, since the A-Wing, Cantina, R2-D2, Gunship, Falcon, Star Destroyer, and AT-AT would all be on shelves at once.  That's 7 UCS/D2C items on shelves at once.  I'd imagine the A-Wing will retire soon-ish and the Landspeeder will fill that price point.  

The Lightsaber is unclear, but given that we have pictures of it, it would make the most sense for that to be a GWP for the AT-AT.

The list is just 1HY sets, when I wrote it I thought helmets would be April release. The lightsaber would probably be with the ATAT or the Landspeeder so 2021 or May also.
