Off topic, but I’m looking at the new 4+ Electromech they did in Ninjago, with the new Mech leg pieces, and am I the only one thinking that those parts might be foreshadowing a 4+ AT-AT?

The ball joints? I could definitely see that, and it would probably be the first and last 4+ set I buy.

There goes my Americanism making me think we're the center of the world. I do apologize for that as I know the forum is made up of people from all over the world. I appreciate many things about living in America like deep Walmart discounts on Lego sets. But the arrogant American attitude is something I'm working on shedding.

lol, dude, no worries, I thought it was funny so couldn't help to comment on it, happy I didn't get banned for it though ;)

Unless they've gotten rid of the molds, I'm betting it'll be ezra's cadet helmet.

I believe he's got an a-wing in the concept art, although I'm sure he'll fly a variety of ships in the show.

@Sneakguest if you really want to get rid of the figure, I'd be happy to have another! :laugh:

Haha, I think the problem is the postage, its up to 40 euros for shipment to US :laugh:

Does anyone have any idea when May or summer pics usually drop? Just curious, I’m on the edge with the ITT and a few others and want to be able to plan. 

Also do we know anything about there being a vignette promo like Hoth, Endor and the Trench Run? Or will that just be the Lars Homestead?

The May UCS (which I believe is the gunship?) tends to usually get a reveal in late April, typically UCS stuff doesn't really leak or if it does, it's very close to the official reveal date.  For example, the cantina had one of the promo shots leak like two weeks before the reveal and I think a blurry picture of the set as a whole came out about a week before the official reveal.  I would assume that the Lars Homestead is indeed a vignette, since I highly doubt they would make one of the most requested locations into a set that is super limited in quantity and only available with the purchase of a UCS set.

Last year, we got a very blurry picture of General Grievous' fighter right around this time, but that was highly atypical if I remember right.  We had the 501st set officially revealed in April, I believe the AT-AT revealed in mid-May, and then everything else leaked at like the end of May/early June.  I would assume some stuff might trickle out in the spring, but the safest assumption is just early summer for pictures.

I think the May UCS is R2-D2 (someone correct me if I'm wrong) and the Gunship should come later in the year. Leaks started in February last year with Grievous's starfighter and the spring wave. I remember D-O leaked on February 21st to be exact lol so I think we should be seeing helmets soon. It will be a long time before the summer pictures come out though, probably May/June :look:

I don't think so, those would be some pretty small legs, even for a 4+ version of the vehicle.

This is correct. The May UCS is R2, the fall UCS is the AT-AT, and the gunship is like an "extra" UCS because of the fan vote, coming after R2.

The vignette is the lars homestead, I believe.

I believe we'll have pics for the non-ucs may sets anytime from two weeks to a month from now, but UCS sets have managed to avoid having leaked images recently, so it's unlikely we'll see the R2 until a few days before it releases. I don't remember off the top of my head when the summer wave releases, but I'd guess we'd get leaked images around two months before they release.

Finally finished watching The Clone Wars and that final arc was incredible. I’m now even more excited for this years sets coming. I already thought they sounded great, but now I’ve actually seen them in the show, I can’t wait to have them all on display! :grin:

The Cara Dune black series figure was cancelled, so the probability that she won't be in the Arquitens set is increasing. It's not like Lego's figure actually looks like her though lol

Good. Now they should add Bo-Katan (the same minifig as in the TCW set) or a second Darktrooper and nobody shall miss her presence :grin:

I’d prefer a dark trooper, as long as the Bo from the fighter has the owl markings (it seems to be S7 based so it should). Dark troopers are better to have more of IMO because anyone who’s buying the Arquitens will probably buy the Fang anyway, so more troops is better then duplicates of a hero.

Was it the figure shown in the article with the “who farted, yall?” look? If so, they did the world a favor.

I could also see them adding a certain spoiler-y figure, since it wouldn't require a new design or anything, but it depends how soon after the release of the season finale that they still consider it to be spoilers.  A second Darktrooper, to me, is probably the best choice, since there were multiple onboard the ship and we're not going to really have an opportunity to get more of them in any other sets unless they did something based on Episode 14 (the first one with Boba Fett).  Plus, keeping Bo-Katan exclusive to the Mandalorian Fighter entices people to buy that (and thankfully it's only $60, if I remember right).

It would honestly be really stupid not to have 2 dark troopers in the set regardless of whether Cara Dune appears in it or not. Every set which introduced new troopers (Krennic's shuttle with the Death troopers, Battle on Scarif with regular shoretroopers, Imperial conveyex with range troopers, AT-Hauler with Dryden's guards just to name a few) had a pair of two which is the bare minimum. If they have already developed a new mold why give us only a single trooper, it's not like the set is amassable. If they pulled something like with the Sith troopers in Kylo Ren's shuttle, with 1 appearing in the set and putting them in battle packs shortly after, then it would be okay. However, something like that seems unlikely at the present and there just aren't that many possible sets which can include them down the line. I would be very surprised if we only get a single dark trooper in the set. Or better yet, not a single one :devil_laugh:

He seemed to be wearing the outfit from the beginning of ROTJ rather than the outfit from the end, and they haven't made that one in years. It'd be nice to get it again honestly.

I think MandR said it, so not confirmed but likely and pretty much certain.

Agree, and since battle packs aren't around any more. Normally when only singular troopers appear it is in cheaper sets, with one of them only in what will be a relatively large set it would be bad to have just one.

Thanks. 

As to your second point, what about GG’s starfighter?

We did get the airborne trooper in a battle pack previously, albeit a different variant and some six years before the starfighter set. It is a rare example though, but there are some others, like the yellow 212th trooper in the umbara cannon..

The airborne trooper in the starfighter is actually slightly different, although you are correct about the yellow 212th.

No. 

It's an assumption made by MandR, but he wasn't sure who that last minifgure was.

does anyone think and hope the new ahsoka from the duel set will have dual molded legs as the ones from hermione from the cmf will be perfect with the ahsoka leg print on them

It's been a while since I've read through this thread, and even longer since I've bought a Clone Wars set. I've noticed a few comments saying that Bo Katan is confirmed to not be in Gideon's ship, only the Mando fighter (which as I understand it is a Clone Wars ship). Does that mean there's a risk of the figure having that horrible Clone Wars art style that seemed to be everywhere on Star Wars figures a few years back, or have they switched to making the figures fit with live-action characters? It would be a shame to finally get Bo Katan and have her not be compatible with the other characters from her most widely-seen appearance.

They stopped making those cartoon-ish figs back in 2014 (I think) thank god :iamded_lol:

Don't count on it. Star Wars almost never has dual molding, I believe the only exception so far has been Han from Betrayal at Cloud City.
