LEGO Star Wars 2023 Set Discussion - READ FIRST POST!!!

Recommended Posts

I still don't believe this. Honestly, at this point, and given how absurd these choices are, I might not believe it until images leak even if a more reliable source confirms it.

EDIT: Aw, falconfan confirmed? Baffling fig selections then, but we'll see. Might have to pick up that Ghost, figures be damned.

Promobricks has just confirmed on Instagram that this is not fake.


I hereby revoke my comments that lego hates TCW fans and 2023 is a golden age of lego star wars for clone fans.

This is every hardcore LSW fan’s dream wave. It’s kinda blowing my mind that this is real. Wow.

Yup, we got got. That's insane that it's real, I mean... whoah. Those are some WILD figure selections. I will complain to no end about the loss of Zeb and my second favorite legion being locked to a very expensive set, but honestly, they're doing what the fans called for in general, to the extent that with something like the Venator they might be sacrificing sales for pleasing the hardcore fans. My only real complaint is if Rex doesn't appear in any cheaper sets in 1HY 2024.

Surely they dont keep Rex exclusive to a $650 set though????????

I imagine only the head with a Bandaid and maybe the arm printing stays exclusive.

For people worried about the Rex issue, Promobricks has been saying "we'll see him in another set within a year" since the beginning.

Shock Troopers and Padme!! Hell yes!

332nd is honestly disappointing to me, but whatever. I may still get it. UCS Venator? I'll be honest, I haven't bought the Gunship yet (probably won't with the new one coming), but I'll be damned if I let this one escape my grasp. The Ghost I really couldn't care less about, unless it's got a decent interior I'll pass.

 

Honestly one massive W for Lego Star Wars.

This just in: Lego does NOT hate the Prequels.

Does not hate the Clone Wars***
 

I’ll be that guy and point out that the Venator and Gunship sets are based on Clone Wars season 6 and 7, respectively.

Thoughts: 

 - The Swamp Speeder Minifigs are a weird choice and a missed opportunity to get the 327th or 41st variants, but I do appreciate being able to get 332nd Troopers at a reasonable price (along with Vaughn).
 - I am VERY excited to be getting a Gunship and the Ghost! I do hope that we get Shock Troopers in a less expensive set, though. As for the Minifigs in the Ghost, I wonder if the weird choices (Quarrie, Jacen) are due to LEGO trying to avoid spoilers for Ahsoka while also including desirable characters. I suspect that we will get another set with Sabine and Ezra, though Zeb's absence is disappointing. 
 - Rex being (currently) exclusive to the UCS Venator is extremely disappointing! I just hope that we get an unbandaged version in 1HY 2024. 😬

I am now wondering who the mystery figure in the Ghost is. Ezra would make sense, but I am not sure how Promobricks would not recognise him. Maybe Ketsu Onyo? She makes as much sense as Quarrie, and her short hair could have caused the person who saw the set to mistake her for a Male character. 🤔
