Beru was just about the last Original Trilogy character of any importance to not have gotten a minifig, so that’s a pretty big milestone. Who would be the next most significant omission from the OT? Sy Snootles, maybe? It’s somebody way down there.

What dollar amount is it to get the Blue Milk polybag?  $75?  I don't know if there's $160 worth of SW stuff that I really need/want at the moment, but I've been eyeing the Mandalorian Fighter, so I could maybe grab that plus the Hoth BP and get the Blue Milk Luke, at least.

70 USD I think is the rumor.

The promos seem to be at $40, $70, and $160. 40531 will be the $160 promo, and I would presume Luke is the $70 one.

Right, agreed. 70 for the Luke.

Probably Moff Jerjerrod, Admiral Ozzel, or Nien Nunb.

He was in the Kenobi trailer maybe he’ll come in a summer wave set.  

It’s not excluded that both Owen and Beru will both appear in a future set (making Beru not any longer exclusive to this GWP).

I wonder if there won't be some sort of homestead set released in the next couple of years. So far the UCS Sandcrawler is the only set to include either Owen Lars or a Threepio variant with his restraining bolt printed on the torso. A homestead set would be perfect for both those figures, as well as another one for Beru for those that pass on/cannot afford the GWP set with Beru. That said, I think the homestead would be difficult to pull off, being split-level and quite spread out. And, honestly, I don't see much play or display value in a moisture farm. It'd probably be best as a few different rooms rather than trying to do the entire thing.

And just like that, the price for Owen Lars on Bricklink has shot up.  The average is now $90.  as opposed to $25 over the past 6 months.

Yeah very glad I got my Owen about 6 months ago to go with a Sandcrawler MOC. Brickfanatics reports that the thresholds are 40, 70 and 160 dollars (ouch) being the ATST polybag, Blue Lip Luke, and (a diorama) respectively.  So its gonna be big spending time to get Beru. Might have swung me on several sets I was undecided on. Bo Katan's fighter and Fett's Palace? Hopefully some meaningful discounts on some sets other than the bare minimum. 10% seems to be as far as they are willing to go.

Cody is Beru confirmed? Jk. Honestly relieved all the speculation is over (for this at least) I really love the idea of multiple levels of gifts, the final being a small vignette with an exclusive figure. Definitely make me look forward to some future ones as well. *cough* Dexters Diner *cough cough* 

I haven’t participated in a May 4th event for LEGO in a while. Do they still do a small discount on older sets for the event?

In terms of what sets to buy to reach $160 usd, I guess Lego's plan - especially given the subject matter of the GWP - is that everyone will buy the UCS Landspeeder to meet the threshold, assuming it releases at the beginning of May.

The Dioramas come out around then, too, don't they? That's my plan for $80 of it at least.

Well I think a Darth Revan - type character is perfect for a special promo because it is so cool and desirable in its own right, but also not integral or long desired by anyone.

I'm pretty sure a similar number of people want Revan as want Beru, if not more, even right now with a Revan already having been a GWP twice (IIRC they redid the promo in 2016 with an even more limited stock). Revan is a MUCH more popular character than Beru, which is why I like that she's the promo. A nice character to have to sort of capstone your collection, but no one's favorite character.

How dare you disrespect Nien Numb in such a manner! Until Lord Numb is released, we will never have the holy trinity of Gonk Droid/Nien Numb/Pit droid. :grin:

(Jokes aside, I would say Nien is the next one from the OT. He was one of only 7 heroes in battlefront 2015, he was one of the main characters in a middle-grade novel I read as a kid, and he's been in a fair amount of other games, books, comics, etc)

Promobricks has listed the Obi-Wan & Darth Vader BrickHeadz for May 1st. Hoping this means that it will arrive in time for the promotions, instead of releasing later in the month which was previously suggested.

Is it $160 in Star Wars sets or $160 in (all) Lego sets?

I’m keep hoping for General Calrissian & Nien Numb in the next Falcon set whenever that may be.

It’s usually just Star Wars sets.

I’m still waiting on RotJ Boba with arm printing, but that’s a variant. At this point the most important characters we’re missing are some rebel pilots and imperial moffs but that’s about it. Plenty of aliens to ask for but most are unlikely because of the moulds.

So, just so we're clear, we are all going to collectively agree to ignore the fact that Codyleaks actually got this one right...right?

That would be nice. I don't usually get brickheads but if it's better than the family guy looking previous Vader brickheadz, maybe I'll get it.

I think it's usually specific to star wars, but I might be wrong.

He originally said it was going to be a commander cody minifigure (That's why his account exists) and then just jumped on the bandwagon of skywalker homestead leaks. He's fake.

I think he's an asshat and all around, a fraud with almost nothing reliable, but there was no bandwagon of a Skywalker homestead--I certainly didn't see it here, nor on IG, not to mention he got the exact info correct, one figure and the kitchen. My theory is that someone with good intel decided to give it to him as a joke, or, in a more sinister fashion, to throw discord with the community. I mean, can you imagine if like the National Enquirer had scooped the Times or Post during Watergate? It obviously did not have a major effect, but he really did get us this time. The question is, how...

Maybe it wasn't Fulcrum or Promobricks, but I saw a ton of people saying they thought the May the Fourth promo would be a skywalker homestead, and a few even mentioning Beru as an exclusive figure. I think he just saw that, made a post off the rumors, and got lucky that it came true.

UCS Landspeeder pics have leaked. It looks great, but not terribly compelling in the way most other UCS ships do. I'll be picking it up and can't wait to see better pictures.

Also, it looks as though there are only (2) GWPs - Beskar Keychain for $70 and Lars Homestead for $160

Yep, that is indeed what Luke's landspeeder looks like. And that's pretty much the sum of my opinions on the model.

I have to agree, it's accurate, but Luke's landspeeder just isn't the most engaging vehicle. I'm still glad we're getting one, just since it's a pretty iconic vehicle to have, but I hope we get something more visually engaging next year. The AT-ST is due for a new UCS model, and if the gunship sold well I'd say May 2023 might be far enough off for them to crank out a UCS ETA-2 or something.

Luke’s Landspeeder looks great. If I were interested in the oversized UCS Vehicle sets, this would be the one I’d want the most.
