LEGO Star Wars 2022 Set Discussion - READ FIRST POST!!!

Recommended Posts

Well, I’m glad that I don’t have to worry about hunting down the Deluxe Edition anymore. I’ll happily take whatever promo and the Blue Milk Luke figure for May the 4th when I get the Cantina and UCS R2-D2.

I know most of the discussion about the March sets has passed, but I picked up Boba Fett's Throne Room at Costco a week or two back and just built it over the weekend (well, 5/6 bags, I still have to finish that last part).  I'm really pleased with this set, it looks a lot larger in person.  Even seeing it on display at the Lego store, it's quite a bit bigger actually having it in hand (possibly because it was in one of the display cases only visible from the front, not the 360 degree view cases?). 

The middle section goes back a lot deeper than I was expecting and I like the door section a lot.  The figures are fantastic and there's a greater level of detail in the palace than I would've guessed from the box.  I also love how most of the figures could interchangeably be used as RoTJ figures.

$100 is still a bit much, but getting it at 20% off was pretty much perfect.  The box pictures really undersell the actual size of this thing.  I didn't own the 2012 version of Jabba's Palace, but I feel like this one just has more going on with it, since you've got three sections and a little bit more detail, since it looks like the main throne section of that set was left fairly empty to be able to fit Jabba.

A reply from Lego CS that was posted on a Dutch FB page said this regarding the Blue Milk Luke:

”Unfortunately we are not able to send out the minifigure as we don’t have any outside of the physical game packaging as they were packaged together and due to the licensing agreement for the game. The only way to acquire the minifigure would be to purchase the physical copy of the game when it comes back into stock at a local retailer or through LEGO.com.”

So I guess that would strongly contradict it also being overproduced and a May the Fourth promo?

Hmmm, it could just mean that customer service was lead to believe that the polybag isn’t going to be available elsewhere or they just don’t know that it’ll be released for May the 4th. Or maybe that particular region won’t be getting it?

That or Fulcrum just missed again. I wouldn’t worry yet though.

Yes that’s true, it will probably remain a Schrödingers Luke till May arrives :’)

Though if true, the licensing thing could be a real obstacle.

So the big $530 set is now rumoured to be a UCS Razor Crest

i wonder how it will compare to Jerac’s. I am imagining more studs for sure.
Having built Jerac’s I can’t see how Lego can even come close. It’s probably the single most impressive thing I have ever built from Lego. 
Saying that I’m sure I will end up getting it if true.

According to whom? That sounds like an absolute nightmare.

Wait, according to who? I haven't seen a single post about this aside from this one.

UCS Razor Crest was my wild card guess for the fall D2C this year, but yeah, I’ve seen nobody reliable even mention this yet. I’d love for it to be true though.

Might be total bs but It’s a fresh rumour found on r/legoleak they tend to be pretty spot on eventually

I’ve seen the mutterings of this rumour, but nobody reliable has said anything. The fact they have not, could mean there’s something to it.

Doesn‘t sound believable to me in the slightest. Not that the ship wouldn‘t deserve the UCS treatment, but that price point would be a bit much :tongue: A $300 one would be more appropriate IMO. And there‘s no reliable source attached to this rumour

Exactly. $530 sounds absolutely insane for a Razor Crest UCS. I mean the Republic Gunship is 4 meters longer in universe, and it was absolutely massive at $350.

 

The Hasbro Razor Crest, which had to be crowdfunded (and was funded at the height of its popularity, before the ship was destroyed on the Mandalorian) only sold for $350.

To be fair, if they do it justice, it will have a full interior, etc., which will bump it up a lot from the gunship, which had just empty space.

Jerac's is 4,888 pieces at minifig scale, so I guess $530 with the Star Wars tax isn't out of the question. This just feels way out of left field. Razor Crest would be worthy of UCS, but I'd have to think there's a few other ships higher on people's wishlists.

Personally, I really hope it's not true. I'd much rather have an MBS after two straight massive ships last year.

The r/legoleaks thread referenced above lists the rumor's source as "brickcatch.com", but a quick visit to their site has zero information on the 75331 page which would indicate the set is the Razor Crest. Zero trust in this rumor at the moment.

to be fair the razor crest actually doesn't have a canon size and it’s calculated through the hasbro one and iirc the scale kinda looks off on it 

that being said, i have my doubts on this one. I HOPE it’s true, i’m not a big fan of MBS sets, but razor crest doesn’t seem that likely to me. Guess we’ll see where it goes

Yeah this really sounds like BS (Bricks Seperated :wink:). Brickcatch isn't a leak site, and they aren't a site where it would realistically make sense for them to be the first to know what the D2C is anyway. The fact that the info isn't even on there at all makes me pretty confident that it's fake. My studs are still on it being either a new death star or endor.

Should I cancel my dagobah pre-order and get it on may the fourth? I want to get a promo, especially if there's multiple like has been rumored, but I'm worried it'll be out of stock.

That's a pretty unique opinion, I'm interested, why don't you like them? The only thing I can think of is that they could be seen as taking spots from more traditional UCS sets. No hate, I just haven't heard this before.

Honestly, it’s just me personally preferring vehicles over location based sets. There’s nothing actually wrong with MBS sets, Cantina set is objectively great imo, they just aren’t what I personally collect

For clarification, the rumor has come from a couple of different sources, including Republic Studs, who rumored it on a YouTube video, and BrickClicker talked about that rumor from RS in a recent video (which is where the Reddit thread picture came from). 
 

While I’ve heard that it’s possibly coming from a couple of sources, at this point it isn’t definite.

I'm still dubious but I do hope my prediction ends up panning out. I couldn't tell you why but more and more, I just get the feeling that this won't be a MBS  playset. The two big guesses are Endor or Geonosis but I'm not as sure of those anymore. I just can't see us getting a large playset bigger than a Death Star, which my gut also tells me that this isn't a new version of that either. 

I think it's going to be a ship and to me, a Razor Crest is the most plausible for the price point. Lego has exhausted just about every realistic OT UCS set, besides the Nebulon Frigate or some starfighter remakes or variations that we haven't gotten before, none of which I see costing $530. It's probably too soon for Lego to have another prequel UCS set ready and there's not much there that I think could exist at such a price point. The only sequel UCS sets that I think are plausible (besides the ST version of the Falcon which is represented by the UCS set) are X-Wing and TIE Fighter variants, which again wouldn't fill the price point. Meanwhile, The Mandalorian is a huge success, the third season will be arriving not too long after this set would launch and the play scale version is on its way out. Sure, the Crest got blown up in the show, but it's still an iconic hero ship and like the UCS Falcon, it would have plenty of interior space possibilities. I could be completely wrong and I probably have some confirmation bias here as like I said earlier, a UCS Razor Crest was my wild prediction for the fall.

 

Also, besides D2Cs and 18+ sets like the Compacter or Dark Trooper Helmet, do we think we're going to get any retail exclusives this year? The only retail exclusive Star Wars set I recall from 2021 was the Armorer's Forge and I remember in summer 2020, we got an extra $100 set that we weren't expecting (the Galaxy's Edge IT-S Transport that was exclusive to Target). I just wonder if we could see something similar here.

When you say Republic Studs rumored it do you mean he is claiming to be the source of the rumor himself or is he just sharing something he heard? I would never trust a youtuber's rumor video as a "source" (especially from a M&R copycat channel), youtuber's like to cling on to any potential rumor or image so they can make a video about it, regardless if the rumor has any real merit to it.
