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

Recommended Posts

After the sandspeeder anything is possible. I hope this one pans out, it could be the best set in a while if true. I’d be taking no chances on it this time, I’d buy the max allowed from s@h day one since Australia is still waiting on 501st battle packs and the AAT.

If Republic tank rumor is true I’m happy, finally a winter set not based on Ot! As for minifigs, Mace is a boring choice and has been in a few sets in past 3-4 years. As for clones, I doubt LEGO will make 187, but rather Maces troops from CW season 7.

The same reaction as many - hopeful scepticism. The tank with Aayla in it is one of my favourite LSW sets ever so I hope it could live up to that. It is an odd choice with the current wealth of more canon vehicles out there though.

Since it's supposedly the 'Jabba's palace' leaker, and that set ended up being Boba's palace, it's conceivable that the 187th is there either as a mistake or as a red herring. Did Mace even have a clone legion in TCW (or other canon material)?

He did, but they are unnamed, a link was shared on the last page. I agree it is a strange vehicle, if I am correct it never appeared in mainstream canon and has had three sets now.

If republic tank rumor is true, then i think there are gonna be 1phase clones instead of 187 ( becouse of 20 anniversary of  Attack of the Clones) also it could be a good support for Gunship (  as the battle of Hoth sets support AT-AT )

I would be overjoyed if LEGO made the 187th Legion, but that doesn't seem very plausible to me. The 187th isn't just not canon, it's never appeared anywhere in Star Wars; it was created by Hasbro for a figure pack in 2006 and has never been used by anyone but them. More importantly, the Bad Batch arc in Season 7 of TCW showed Mace leading a currently unnamed unit, which has presumably replaced the 187th in current canon. If the rumor is correct at all, it's much more likely that the clones would be the ones from TCW. The color is similar enough to the 187th that somebody could have misidentified them.

 

They do it because people like me want them. They've already made figures of the 91st Recon Corps; surely something new is better than a repeat? That said, the Geonosis troopers are a bad example of anything because LEGO pulled them out of thin air, so you're right that nobody was asking for those.

The 187th battalion seen in Season 7 is the 91st Recon Corps I'm pretty sure. In canon Mace Windu doesn't have his own legion, he just commands part of the 91st.

I agree with this. Was hoping to pick up a new Fett. Don't want to pay $60 for a slave I when I have the UCS, and don't want to spend $100 on a palace I don't want! lol. I was also hoping for a small $30 range set to grab Fett!

Yeah, same.

It kinda sucks that the only set for a new series that we're excited for is a 100€ palace... not very one wants to buy a huge playset just to get a representation of this series.

I hope they make more sets based on this series down the line.

To be clear, there are still some sets on the rumoured list that don't have rumoured names attached, including a $30 one, so there still could be more than one BoBF set.

However, given there's a known $100 one, that does lower the likelihood that all the cool desirable characters would come in another set too. LEGO wouldn't put Boba and Fennec in two sets, so a $30 alongside the $100 one would most likely have Boba and some other characters.

We'll just have to wait and see.

The Republic Tank rumor is very exciting, especially for the figures! The previous tank was excellent, I wonder how they're going to improve it.

If the Republic tank rumour is true, I will be very happy. I hope the colour Medium Lilac is used for the purple printing. I imagine something like this:

the_187th_by_axemeagain-d7yvqo6.jpg&f=1&

This would be best case scenario for me (since purple is my favourite colour and Phase 2 and Airborne Helmets are my first and second favourite Clone Wars Helmets repectively).

The oldest images of a Phase 2 Gunner I’ve seen are also from action figures & they included that in the last Republic Fighter Tank.

Also, a Lego Star Wars Visual Dictionary-type book appropriately had that tank as a Legends set. Perhaps this is TLG’s ‘vehicle’ for including non-cannon stuff.

 

I’m hoping its the 187th as it’s way less likely to happen if it’s not now—since I’d eventually like to see both variants of Windu’s troopers. Sounds like a buy, either way… if it’s real.

2. He’s been in 2 sets. The combat speeder and the UCS gunship. Hardly a boring choice when they could just as easily give us Anakin, Obi-Wan or farm boy Luke.

I'm could've sworn they were in BF 2005, but apparently that was a mod as they aren't in it according to wookiepedia. That said, we got airbourne geonosis troopers, a p2 gunner, and.... a vehicle based on a prototype action figure vehicle. The 187th is definately possible, but it's also certainly possible it was a mistake. Personally, I'd prefer some canon clones, but I suppose we'll see.

As someone who's mace is currently the TCW mace with the generic reddish brown head they used for the FO officer in the 2016 battle pack, I can second the fact that he's not exactly readily available. The combat speeder was almost 3 years ago (and also a horrible, overpriced set), and the UCS gunship is not something you would buy because you wanted a mace windu.

If the rumour is true, in addition to the Clone Troopers being from TCW s7, I will buy so many of this set!! 

I have been banging on about these Clone Troopers in the future Star Wars thread since the Annaxes arc, so I’d be thrilled. 

Fingers crossed over here.

I'm a little late to the party and am glad the discussion has moved on to true rumors. But for the record, we don't know for sure what Lego's agreement is with Disney and/or Hasbro for CMFs. Let's pause that speculation for now. Also, please be careful not to devolve into wishlists about future CMFs or minifgure lineups. We have a dedicated thread for that.

I remember this, it's not a battle pack but at least it's got a good amount of troopers! The only thing that makes me think it really is the 187th is that supposedly it's got an airborune, but given that both the 7

th sky corps and Mace's legion were on Anaxes...

I'm hoping that there is....Boba's one of my favorites but I'm running out of shelf space...

Aren't the Hoth Scout troopers an only toy design from Hasbro? And they are confirmed to be in the next battlepack, so I assume the 187th troopers are on the table as well. I like the purple design for them. A good set I didn't expect it.

I like this approach of releasing sets which "combine" with the UCS Gunship and AT-AT. Given there is still no snowspeeder (it may be in the final set), do you think there might be an snowspeeder in the UCS AT-AT set? It would use only an small part of the piece count.

This is what I was thinking, as well: The 187th Commander wears Airborne Trooper armour (Source). If this and the 212th accessory pack rumours are true, LEGO could be setting an interesting precedent with regard to Republic forces, as both sets would include a unit commander, two of their standard Clones, and an additional character. I can see immense potential in such a format!

It does seem a bit weird for Lego to make a fighter tank model out of the blue with legends exclusive Clones. For the 2017 set, there at least was BF2 coming out which was planned to have it (although, it was moved to a dlc update years later). It really sounds like the most wish listed set idea in a while, however stranger things have been randomly released (Sandspeeder, the Azure Angel).

Nah, they were actually featured in the old incredible cross sections book on the OT for the AT-AT page. That's where hasbro got the idea from and now LEGO is following suit. 

Excited about the prospect for the 187th as well, as this may mean we might be getting some more variants down the line. I hope to see modern revamps of all the OG 2005 clones at some point.

Where did you hear 212th accesory pack rumors? Great if true, though.
Aside from being a great set, it'd be absolutely hilarious if all these people spent all this time complaining lego doesn't care about prequels only to get two sets of 2 requested legions with troops and a commander in a single wave! :laugh:

I'm going to float this idea out cautiously, but do you think since MandR knows at least the list of the winter wave, there is a possibility his 'ideas' for the accessory packs are what we're actually getting? 

On 9/20/2021 at 5:49 PM, roboticserpent said:

A 212th accessory pack with 2 regular troops, an airborne trooper and Cody. And a Bad Batch pack with Howzer, a regular white phase 2 clone and an elite trooper.

Very optimistic I know, but it's weird how he only gave two ideas for these rumored packs instead of listing a bunch of potential variations we could get. I'm not getting my hopes up, but it's interesting

Three, actually, if the Howzer pack is also real!

I strongly encourage everyone to avoid getting their hopes up about either the 187th or the 212th. These rumors are not backed by any reliable source.
