It really is just an incredible show.

I thoroughly enjoyed it too, and have complete faith that it will continue to be great. 

Regarding the set, I just wish the wings were a little longer and it came with another enemy/guard figure.

It was a really cool scene for sure.

I can totally see why people would want to buy multiples as someone above has done :)

Probably a good candidate for a 2023 (or more painfully 2024) Advent Calendar like the Bespin Guard and Cloud Car Pilot. 

I thought that as well, since I am not sure where else additional Corpos could be included (particularly since it seems like all shots of them in the trailers are from the first three episodes).

We need

Luthen's ship

as a set ASAP, though I worry that lego will decide the show is too mature.

I doubt that LEGO would decide now that the show is “too mature”, since they must have seen material from the first three episodes in order to make the set that we already got.

You may call him an anti-hero or something, but I call someone who

executes an unarmed opponent begging for his life at point blank just to eliminate a witness an outright villain, and an unlikable one at that.

 

I actually like what appears to be a reversal of typical character roles between Cassian and Syril, since it is introducing a lot of grey into the (normally) black-and-white Rebels vs. Empire conflict. (Also, I think that Cassian is starting the series more as an anti-villain protagonist, who will grow into an anti-hero by the end of the show).

I root for him to get his comeuppance, but of course that’s not gonna happen

That is still possible; while we know that Cassian cannot die (Spoilers!), there are people who he can lose as a result of his actions (which we seem to be seeing a bit of towards the end of the first arc).

Honestly I think it got progressively better.

The lack of more Corpos is the biggest issue, I think. It should have had two soldiers, at least. I'm definately trying to wait until it goes on sale.

Not necessarily. They could have just been shown bits that weren't too mature, I mean heck, it's not unlikely that they were just shown concept art and costume images.

Exactly. it's so nice to finally have a show where the hero and villain aren't straight up good and evil. Like, from Syril's perspective he's investigating the deaths of two officers, and even as the audience we know Andor did kinda shoot an unarmed, pleading man in the head, attempted extortion notwithstanding. And so far Andor really hasn't done any heroism. It's cool that Luthen, who's definately more of a Saw Guerrera type of guy, is going to start him on the path to becoming a more heroic guy than he is.

That is definitely possible, but if we can get RotS Anakin and the 501st, I think that we will be able to get more sets for Andor. LEGO’s policy regarding violence and other mature themes seems to be that the characters/vehicles/settings/etc are fine, as long as the actual mature content in-question is not depicted.

I particularly like seeing someone on the Empire’s side who is actually a decent person - We have gotten a lot of defectors who have seen the evils of the Empire, but in cases of people like Iden Versio (who served until after Endor), I find myself wondering how they can be loyal to such a cartoonishly evil organisation for so long. Andor seems to be answering that with Syril Karn, and I look forward to when Dedra Meero shows up.

And if you want a show about the early formation of the Rebellion, have you watched Rebels' later seasons? Just don't get frustrated that there's no LEGO for most of it... sigh.

I get frustrated about this every time I rewatch the show. I can't believe we only got Kanan's character design from Seasons 3 and 4 as a minifigure.

Speaking of Rebels, I think it's really funny how this show is taking place around the same time as Rebels season one, which was a lot more light hearted and accessible to young fans. I love both though. It's cool seeing different sides of rebel cells rising to fight back against the oppressiveness of the Empire.

So about Andor:

I love that they use BBY instead of whatever Disney was trying to change it to.

 

Disney never tried changing it. They used a different dating system specifically for one visual dictionary and some people got up in arms about it, but it was never intended to replace the current system. I like that they used BBY on screen too though.

Exactly. In any typical story, Cassian would be the clear-cut villain and Syril would be the clear-cut hero. 

Cassian murdered two Corpos, though one of them was an accident and could kinda be considered self-defense, and fled the scene. Syril is an ambitious fellow who refuses to sweep these deaths under the rug to make their company look good. The nuance there, however, is that Syril doesn't really care that two people died, he cares that two company people died. He's loyal to his institution above other human beings, while Cassian is mostly just self-serving at this point, but will eventually go on to sacrificing himself so that the Rebels have even the smallest chance at destroying the Death Star.

As much as I like my big galaxy-sweeping, Jedi vs. Sith stories, I really like seeing this smaller scale story showing how these big galactic events have affected the lives of the average, everyday people. I like the amount of variety we'll be getting with these Disney+ Star Wars shows in the next year or two. We've got our gritty rebel spy thriller here, we'll get our gunslinging western with The Mandalorian, we're get our mystical spirit quest with Ahsoka, a Stranger Things-esque coming-of-age space adventure with Skeleton Crew and something completely new with The Acolyte.

He's definately one of the highlights of the show. While watching it I was worried people would just decide he's a bad guy (which don't get me wrong, he's doing bad things), but people seem to agree that from his perspective he's doing the right thing.

Spoiler

He gets manipulated by the irish dude into being too rough with the locals, (And even then the irish dude just seemed to be saying what he thought Syril would want to hear to get a promotion, when really Syril was out of his depth and struggling for what to do) but we see that he really cares about his fellow troops when the bomb goes off. 


I'm glad the mods are letting us run with this, but I'll try to talk about the set a bit just in case. Super accurate, to a surprising extent, but it really needed 2 more corpos, ESPECIALLY if it's at a $70 price tag. Syril's at $14 on bricklink just from being a new figure in an expensive set, but I don't think he'll decrease much given that people will want to army-build. (Actually, speaking of him, he's the most inaccurate part of the set. The re-used face doesn't work well, which is annoying but a problem seen pretty commonly in themes like marvel, but then the suit is the wrong colors. Mata blue and yellow instead of navy blue and orange-red.)

One only need to look at the last five plus years to see how easy this can occur even in real life lol

Agreed on his inaccuracy but I suppose it at least gave us a torso and cap to make our own versions of his subordinates.

Have we heard anything new about the potential 2022 minfig packs? I was hoping for more clones and such before, but now I want both of them (assuming they're coming) to be from Andor so that we can get

one with some Pre-Mor employees and one with people like Bix, Timm, Brasso, Maarva, Bee, etc.

I can’t see them on the usual place but one of the Lego Facebook groups I’m in shared some new pictures of the Crest, including the interior so there are more out there. I think it looks great.

From the images of the UCS Razor Crest it appears they also included the container with the frog eggs, which I love as an Easter egg :D Overall the interior looks pretty cool if you ask me. The whole ship feels as if you could live in it while navigating hyperspace, and that’s something they did pretty well I think.

The Razor Crest does look amazing but is so far out of my price range it's hard to pay much attention to it. What I am focusing on is the build for the Bluurg and the pram. It's disappointing that the Bluurg has an exclusive eye printed piece, that will make recreating them accurately more difficult, though I imagine the set will come with at least one extra that I'm sure many will sell on bricklink. I really like the build of the Bluurg, it looks so much better than it appeared on the blurry leaks. I would still vastly prefer a specialized molded creature especially for consistency with other Star Wars creatures but I'll take it for now

I don't like how squared off the pram is on the back but overall it's a decent little build. Regarding the figures, Kuill still looks like his face melted and is still way too big. The new Mando looks fantastic but it's already making me a little mad because the updated helmet print is excellent but I know they're going to go right back to the absolutely awful printing for Mando season 3 sets. Prove me wrong LEGO!

The reaction to the razorcrest is quite funny to see. All comments are ‘shouldn’t be stickers’ ‘Lego surely don’t think this will sell for $600’ ‘too expensive’

have these people been living under a rock since 2017? There’s been 3 UCS vehicles sets over that price since then that have included stickers and sold well…and this is the cheapest of the lot, the way everyone acts surprised and like this is out of the blue is really quite humorous

My thoughts as well. You could argue, I suppose, the popularity of this model at this scale may not match the level of the Falcon, AT-AT and Star Destroyer, but I still think it will sell well. I'll definitely be picking it up with an eventual double points promo.

Maybe because other (legal) producers are putting out more and more sets with prints? I know this isn't Lego but if one restaurant serves you sushi for free if you order the main dish and the main dish is also cheaper then...

I was always fine with Lego stickers anyway - I tried to make texture with bricks and as I had some of the few older and fully printed sets, I can state that the colours were even more off than from stickers.


Razors Crest: The engines are the best so far (compared to any MOC) though I dislike the 24 dark tan tiles. There are some horrible gaps - especially the completely exposed bottom could have easily been fixed by like 8 plates. Oh and it's really weird to only have the landing gear. Like that flying shot on the boxart looks weird :pir-grin:.

Overall looks great - I hope to get to see it in a store once.

Stone Wars and other fan media reports that there will be no UCS plaque stickers anymore starting 2023 with new UCS sets.

Quote

While the UCS Razor Crest still has a sticker for the plaque, Solid Brix Studios can confirm via the LEGO Group that future UCS Sets going forward (2023+) will use printed plaques.

There will be a Leia minifigure comming with the next Lego Star Wars Magazine releasing 22th October in Germany. Looks like the Leia from the Tantive IV and 75301 X-Wing.

Looks great, however I have never collected UCS spaceships and probably never will, its too expensive as it already is, but if I would I would totally buy it, looks too me way better than most they done previously. I would of course, like most probably everybody else here, want to get the mythrol and kuill, but dont want to pay 100 € for them each, hope that alteast Kuill will appear in a cheaper set later.

The set looks awesome.

The Mandalorian looks absolutely fantastic. They improved the helmet, and the arm printing really is an incredible touch.

The Razor Crest looks absolutely gorgeous. I'm glad the brick-built Blurrg turned out looking pretty good! I'd love to put together at least one more to recreate some of the Season 1 scenes.

I'm glad there isn't a Day 1 GWP with this set, as it's one that I'll have to wait a while to purchase. But it's definitely very high on my list.

I think the Razor Crest is awesome.  I’m loving that Lego is giving us the non mini figure/mini figure scale ships with full fleshed out interiors.  Hopefully this can continue, maybe with a Star Destroyer or Invisible Hand full fleshed out interior and a big one for me would be Slave 1.  
 

I know a lot of people may say I’m picky but I would of loved the bed to be slightly left more so it could include the toilet facility to the right. And maybe even have a little shutter that comes down like in the series.   
 

EDIT: If they can do the Razor Crest in this colour there is no reason we can’t get Naboo Royal Starship like this.

Sorry I don't follow the edit comment - its in LBG so what's the reference to the Naboo RS?
