While we’re on the topic of the bad batch shuttle I saw someone on Facebook suggest that it’s releasing on May 4 to tie in with the show. I don’t think it’s true, because when has a Facebook comment section ever been a reliable source, but just thought I’d check here with the bothan spies. It’s coming August with the rest of the 2HY wave, right?

I’d doubt that’s true, but it’s possible that they might officially reveal the set on May 6th. The Star Wars YouTube channel has a weekly show called “This Week in Star Wars” that announces upcoming merch and other content.

I don’t know if it’s been confirmed or not, but the shuttle could be this year’s Amazon exclusive Star Wars set, although the past two were both $130 USD while the shuttle set is rumored to be $100 USD.

So do we think that there is a 130$ set coming out this year we don’t know about? I would guess that it would be an At Te, as the last two gunships have been released with one in the same wave, although a lot had changed since then, and we have no large OT system sets confirmed.

I doubt there’s another set, since MandR’s list for the summer/fall wave seems complete. Amazon could just be keeping the Razorcrest around for longer than most Lego sets (which typically get discontinued after approx. two years).

I’m well aware of the YouTube videos, gotta know where to find them if you want to downvote them. We could see a reveal of the shuttle soon, we saw first pictures of the Razor Crest around this time last year even though it was a September release. 

There’s no $130US set but there is a $30US store exclusive that we don’t know the contents of, right?

Yes there is a $30 Target set. My guess is Obi-Wan’s starfighter but as others have pointed out that isn’t likely granted that Anakin’s is still on shelves.

Thought so. Interested to see what it is. Obi Wan’s starfighter would be good to see again for those who missed it last time but it’s probably just going to be another Snowspeeder :ugh:

Or it could be Cobb Vanth's speeder or better yet, a battle on Tython set with Boba Fett. You never know. I probably wouldn't think much of it until we know more.

(insert “but Lego never has good ideas” joke here) 

I don’t see Tython as a set. It’s not a very visually interesting place and there isn’t much opportunity for play features, ya sort of just have the little altar thing Grogu’s on and that’s it. Cobb’s speeder with a micro scale krayt dragon to go with ToT tho…that would be brilliant.

Honestly if it was a $40 set I'd say they could easily do the Imperial dropship, Boba Fett and a couple Stormtroopers for a Tython set. At $30 I think it's certainly less likely unless they make a really small dropship or make the shrine with Grogu instead as the build. As far as features, how about Boba Fett to wreck some Stormtroopers, do we really need any other features? :tongue: I don't think they'd make a tiny Krayt dragon but they could include a Massif, we've never gotten one in LEGO before.

If that hypothetical set doesn't include a new mold for shattered Stormtrooper helmets we riot :devil_laugh:

Hahaha I think the best we could hope for would be a printed crack over the helmet but I seriously doubt LEGO would go that violent :laugh: besides, I'd rather they put the budget toward printing for Boba Fett. This is all speculative though, I hope the $30 Target exclusive is remotely as good as what I've suggested but we just don't know.

I just recently added the new topics, so I'm going to use this as a training opportunity.

I agree

But it's still legal to dream, no? And they have to do it at some point.

I think that with the rumored Vault set, the Kom'rk Class Fighter, and the Trouble on Tatooine set, it's pretty likely. They'd probably have to replace the rumored Cara Dune with a Dark Trooper, Koska Reeves, or Luke.

You can dream, yes. But please do it in the appropriate thread.

...dare I hope for Rex...I know it's almost definitely not based off S7 but hey a guy can dream...it would probably be Grand Moff Tarkin honestly he seems to have a decently sized role in the show. 

You can hope, but please do it in the appropriate thread.

While it would be really cool to get either Rex or Cody with the Havoc Marauder (Cody is the one they reported to in Season 7 of TCW after all), I can see an extra minifigure being one of the Elite Squad Troopers from The Bad Batch show. It’d make sense to include someone for the Bad Batch to fight, but I suppose the inclusion of a sixth figure is conjecture at this point anyway.

This is in the gray zone. By your own admission it's conjecture. And it's mostly a wishlist. Probably belongs here instead. Thought you could probably also throw it here.

And that's how false rumors start. A wished for set slot and a wishlist set to fill it. All pulled from thin air. That kind of comment certainly belongs here.

I’m sorry about that, @MKJoshA, I suppose that was a bit of a pathetic reach on my part.

Does anyone know when the magazine with Palpatine is supposed to release in U.K. and Ireland? One site lists March 17th but it already seems to be out in Germany.

With the new Slave 1 coming out this year, with the rumoured minifigs somewhat lacking in the having anything new area, what are the odds we get an updated Han in carbonite piece?

Whether or not that'll be the case has already be determined, so the odds are either 0 or 1.

I do not understand why people keep asking for this, it's utterly unnecessary. The one we have is perfectly accurate, rewatch that scene or do a google image search, When Han goes into carbonite, it dosen't preserve his perfect perm,  it smashes his hair down and looks just like the old Han hair piece.

Exactly this. I don't understand why people would want a new mold specifically for the hair piece update. The only upgrade I could see is making it a 2 piece thing, where you could close off the underside so Han isn't visible and possibly include some anti-studs so you could pose it like it's levitating.

Just Boba Fett and Han Solo

Ah, that’s what I would have expected.

I think Germany gets it (the magazine) a month before the UK. It was the same with the Bespin Luke figure I believe.

So I saw on Instagram that the helmets and the probe droid are coming out in April? That doesn’t seem right though because usually the pics get dropped on Lego.com the month before and we have yet to see any of them. I’m guessing the acc was wrong and they’re still set for May but I was just curious if anyone else knew anything about this.
