My wife is going to buy me the Star Wars advent calendar for Christmas which is going to be awesome. It's a good start as I'm looking into buying more. The Star Wars sets are my favourite.

I think we're pretty much done talking about rumors for 2021. So I've created the 2022 topic for everyone to start using. We also have the 2022 News thread for substantiated set information.

*cries in UCS AT-AT*

And that's why I said "pretty much" instead of "completely" :wink:

Apparently this is it. Kind of funny, the "obi-wan gets ptsd" super pack.

I'm looking at that Titanic set and I'm looking at the funds I've been saving for nearly a year for the UCS AT-AT. I'm suddenly not sure if I really need more Light Gray panels and greebling in my collection.

I'm in the same boat (pun intended) and on the surface it really looks like a tough decision for me. In reality I'll probably get only UCS AT-AT just because the Titanic is so massive and I really have no space left in my room for that behemoth. I know that AT-AT won't be small either but it sure won't be as long and I'll probably be able to squeeze it on a shelf somewhere

honestly: the genius way of how angles are achieved, how much detail they managed to put in - even really good SW sets are no match for this kind of set. I even understand a UCS Landspeeder - the UCS/Creator car sets are quite popular and this is just a sci-fi car. But even if 4 legs, a trunk and a head would work for me - the recent AT-AT set with some mods is really great and its not small anyway. I'm happy if you guys and gals are happy but I never understood why there's even demand for building them legs 2 hours 4 times :pir-murder:

I turn the monotony into a challenge by assembling the 4 legs simultaneously - two per the instructions and the other two are mirrored.  Works especially well with an AT-AT.

I do this with wings, legs, engines, anything doubled or mirrored. Usually great, though I remember I looked for a missing panel on the U-wing for ages before realizing it was a slightly different pattern on the other wing.

I do that too.  It makes building X-wings, TIE fighters, and Y-wings so much faster!

Do we have any news about the UCS AT-AT ? I need to decide on the funds, should i reserve them for this thing or it will be yet another pass. I dont like this secrecy from Lego side, especially on such expensive things. The only good thing is it will be here for the next year or more, so i dont need to get it immediately. I could save 150eur on the Falcon if i did not needed it day 1 - at least it was fun time waiting 3h before opening with 6 other crazy people :D

Hopefully early November. 

It's so close to November, I'm surprised there haven't been any leaks!

Yeah, while I'm not expecting the official reveal until 2 weeks before Black Friday it is amazing that the only info we have is the price and piece count. That being said I think we only got the info on the Gunship one week before it's reveal.

Based on SolidBrixStudios cryptic post, I suspect he may have received a review copy of the UCS AT-AT.

Where is he’s post?

That surely means leaks are due any day now...

my thoughts exactly. Using a recent example: I suspect Titanic leak happened because one of LAN member's picture of their review copy got out either intentionally or unintentionally. The leak was on the 29th September and embargo got lifted on October 7th however I don't think that Titanic leak happened on the exact date that review copy was received. Taking some time buffer in account I expect AT-AT review embargo lift in less than 2 weeks from now

Good to know we're getting close to the official reveal of the UCS AT-AT. I'd be surprised if TLG announced anything before the 8th, which is when the Titanic becomes readily available in stores and online. I'd imagine TLG would want to space out the release and the announcement of their two most expensive sets of the year. Did we get a teaser with the UCS Star-Destroyer? I remember the box leaked a few weeks or days before it was revealed.

Thats what I went with!

BTW anyone keen on a day 1 AT-AT may want to observe what went down with the Titanic (Too soon?). I mean we kind of expect things to go to backorder quickly (Cantina) but last night was a speed I've only seen for highly anticipated IP sets. Throw in that SW D2Cs sell out fast in a good year it may be madness trying to snag an AT-AT.

plus, there's probably going to be a highly sought after GWP, Anakin's lightsaber (did I stutter?), and anyone wanting to get it day 1 has odds really stacked against them. I may be one of those people, if I manage my budget right this month
