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.

My Mace is the exact same :laugh: the TCW Mace was from a magnet set from LEGOLAND.

Another point on the Mace front, is that purple is also rarer colour of lightsaber to get.

I'm gonna believe in the tank rumour for now, it seems random enough to make sense for lego. If it turns out to true, great I like those tanks (I remember really wanting the cw one, when I was a kid,) and the figs sound good, if it turns out false, so what, it'll be a shame, But I don't care that much, and hey I'll have 'saved' the money I would've spent on it.

I don’t buy the fighter tank rumours, but the 187th honestly doesn’t seem that far fetched for lego to put into a set. We got the sandspeeder as a set, as well as the geonosis phase II clones and the hoth scout that we’re apparently getting in the battle pack 

I just find it to be overall too good to be true and the 2022 wave has been overwhelmingly OT based. I’d love to be wrong because this set sounds great but I’m just not holding my breath

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

Ahh, ok. I suppose it's possible then, but I wouldn't get my hopes up, as much as I want everyone's favorite based clone.

(And the 212th is better than the 501st...fight me!)

Dude, no way, that's how I got mine! I remember being extremely disappointed as a kid, because I got a ninjago pack and they all ended up being glued together.

+1!

The thing that strikes me as odd about the tank is that it's so out of place for a single set in a run. If we were to get one TCW-era set in a wave, why pick a vehicle that is on the fringes of canon at best? It doesn't really tie in with the Gunship since they're from different points in the timeline (and it would be weird to have Mace in both sets), and the last relevant media was Battlefront II, which came out four years ago. Equally, unless the AAT has an usually long shelf life there won't be any separatist forces to oppose it, unless they throw some droids in as they did with the last one.

I guess it fits the price point (assuming it's the 30EUR set) well for a GAR vehicle that isn't an AT-RT, and in that sense I could see it being the successor to the 501st pack. It does feel very wishlisty, but those normally get found out pretty quickly, and it seems quite persistent.

To be frank, I don‘t buy any of these most recent „rumours“. I mean, Cody in an accessory pack? Come on, we all know his P2 helmet requires a new mould, so let‘s drop the pretense :tongue: The rest doesn‘t sound particularly realistic either

I think you hit the nail on the head with "why pick a vehicle that is on the fringes of canon at best". That's just something Lego would do cause they're lego. If it were to happen then I think it would have to be more expensive than $30 and it would end up being 75325, the set without a price tag, and I'd price it at $40-$50. There's no way they would sell 3 clones and Mace for $30 cause they like to be stingy with clone figs and these clones would be flying off shelves.

P2 Cody in a 15$ minifigure pack just seems unrealistic from every view point. If Lego ever makes him, he's going in a 100+$ set like an AT-TE or Gunship. Lego rarely puts named Clones in cheap sets, let alone one as demanded as him.

In recent years, no, but barc speeder and sidecar, battle for geonosis, geonosian cannon, geonosian starfighter, and battle on salucemi we’re pretty cheap, right?

Exactly :laugh: We all know the day Cody makes his debut, Lego will want him to be in the priciest set they can get away with. I’m sure he’ll be the straw that breaks the camel’s back regarding Lego’s reluctance to revisit the P2 helmet mould with accessories. 

Interesting rumour about the Republic Fighter Tank. Whilst I can’t deny a set like this sounds appealing, I’m bemused at the prospect of Lego opting for something like this and not something from canon media. 

@Brickroll You have a point, except none of those sets required a new mould for the clone characters. If Lego do decide to tackle Cody, I’m sure they’ll introduce a new mould for it. Of course, they could just go the lazy route as per 2013 Rex and this year’s Crosshair and pretend standard helmets without attachments are passable, but Cody’s helmet is too distinct for them to do that I think.

The helmet made for Boushh Leia is an excellent example of what they've been able to do with a single mould and some paint, IMO a similar approach would be fine and possible for Cody.

Question does anybody think the $800 UCS will be reason enough for TLG to separate X-Wing and Snowspeeder Pilot outfits again? If Luke is included I'd love him to have the printed arms like Zev and Will, But since 2019 Lego has done away with differentiating these outfits. I'm getting pumped up for this set now and while there aren't any "exciting" minifigs I could imagine  being included (unless they go Vader Hologram piece) I'm simply interested to see what they decide to include. I can think of scenarios from 2 - 5 figs that aren't generic snowtroopers, and then of course there could be anywhere from 0 - 8 of those. If snowtroopers are included I'm not too hung up on whether or not these guys get there skirts back, but I do want the backpacks. In my display of all my Star Wars figs the snowtroopers are currently the new torso with the old backpacks.

It's becuase there aren't many GAR vehicles that work at that price point.

I most certainly hope the rumours of a Clone Fighter Tank set in 2022 are correct, as having two would make great additions to my Clone Army! :classic:

It's interesting to see that other than the 4+ X-wing back in January, there's been no suggestion of any Sequel Trilogy sets this year at all. Like the lack of Sequel content in the lineup of Disney+ shows announced last year, I have to think that that's a statement on Disney and LEGO's assessment of people's level of interest in the Sequel era generally.

I kind of doubt it. We only got a few sets in (I think) 2007 for the PT, the usually just like to give time to breathe. It also could be that there is such a crazy amount of new content that last year wanted to focus on things that hadn’t been before.

The rumoured Death Star Fight Scene set could well be from TROS, but Disney's moved on so Lego will probably just throw in a token set here and there like with PT stuff.

In 2006, the only PT sets were a re-release of the Clone Turbo Tank without the light-up minifigure, and the V-Wing Fighter. First wave 2007 had the two battle packs and Grievous' fighter, and then the second wave of 2007 was pretty much entirely Prequels. And then the Clone Wars came out, so there was new content for Lego to focus on

I'm not a huge fan of the sequels but it's kind of a shame, considering there is a ton of potential for stories to be told in that time period. Moreover, there are still a ton of potential sets we never got from the trilogy. I don't even like TRoS, but I'd totally buy a set of the fight with Palpatine just because it would probably look really cool.

As others have mentioned, same thing happened with the prequels. It's not so much that it's a "statement" on the sequels (kids 6-12 generally don't have strong opinions on the quality of certain segments of media from what I've seen, at least from personal experience they love bb-8, kylo, and the first order just as much as clones, stormtroopers, and jedi). It's moreso that they spent 6 years saturating the market with sequel releases and now they're letting it breath, just like they did with the prequels.

Is it possible the 187th are being included in the set (if true) because they make their appearance in The Bad Batch?

Now that I’ve said it, it seems unlikely, especially since they’re including Mace Windu.

That would be so exciting! A duel-style set with Rey, dark Rey and Kylo (with stab wound?) would be a set I’d actually go out and buy

aren’t there still loads of TROS sets still on shelves? Surely that’s a more likely reason for the lack of new ST sets

Another reason is that the ST has been covered VERY well, especially when compared to the early days of OT and especially PT sets, which took years to get to a similar point (and one could argue the PT hasn‘t reached that point yet with the amount of stuff still missing). I mean, it took them 13 years to finally release a Queen Amidala minifig! :laugh:

Of course it‘s not really fair to compare sets released between 2015 and 2020 to ones released in the early 2000‘s due to the massive increase in budget and new moulding techniques, but still :tongue:

There‘s still some stuff from the ST I would like to see in set form, but I‘m ok with it taking a backseat to Mando, TCW, BB, and all the upcoming shows of course

New rumor from a trusted source ( LEGO_Fulcrum) a dark trooper battle pack for 20$. 
I personally don't like them in the mandalorian so i don't really care about the figures, but i know lot of people will be excited cause they wanted multiple of them and the prices were insane on bricklink.

Dark troopers in a 30EUR set... I wonder if it'll be based on Tython seeing as we've already had the cruiser.

Equally, I guess this puts paid to the Republic tank rumour, as this takes up the price point I assume it would've had. Oh well.

No the tank has said to be bigger than the last one which was $30, so the $60 slot could still be open. Even though it’ll probably be overpriced at that point, but knowing it has a decent amount of clones in it that would be a shock.
