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

Recommended Posts

Well that’s weird. 
I have no interest in the Swamp Speeder or Venator. It’ll be cool to see Young Yularen in Lego, even if he’s going to be ridiculously expensive on the secondary market. They have to release a Rex next year or it’ll be very bad.

Ghost is obviously an instant buy. I’m not particularly into the Gunship, but a good Palpatine & Padmé might be enough to sway me.

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. 🤔
 

I mean it could just be a new character from the Ahsoka show that hasn’t been revealed yet.

Sooo what troops are we supposed to fill our gunships with? Considering it’s shock trooper themed. 

Most LAATs have the same design (though some have different paint-schemes and nose art), so it can be used for the 501st or any other Clone unit that LEGO has made (lack of pilots notwithstanding).

Oof going to have to start saving,these and yavin I’m probably going to pre order, thank the heavens I didn’t pay for the 2013 one just recently and held out.Did not expect fox to come before a wolfee or a bly at all.The last time a atte and gunship were out I was too young to get them myself but the times finally come to get a few of each.
 

edit:not having to spend 60+ for a outdated shock is also great.

This just went from one of the worst waves to one of the best sounding waves. A LAAT, the Ghost, Yavin 4, UCS Venator, all in one year.

Maybe, but the other characters in the set are established and not spoilers for the show; I assume that the same is true for the mystery figure. I could be wrong (again!), though.

That’s what I was thinking, only problem is we STILL have no clone pilots!

True. Yeah, maybe it’s Ketsu then. If it’s based on Rebels it sucks that it doesn’t include Zeb or Kanan though.

Oh, great, I just spent $158 in the last week on LEGO, and now we've got two $150+ sets that I'd love to get with the Ghost and Gunship.

Will wait for pictures on the swamp speeder, I have a 332nd from the AAT and it's a cool figure, and I'd love to add Vaughn, but like some folks have said, it wouldn't have been my first choice of figures.

Yavin was also already of interest to me, and then possibly the Yoda Starfighter if it's based on the Young Jedi Adventures (no, that's not a joke, I think the 4+ figures were awesome and would love to get them).  I also really want that new Bo-Katan figure, so I might very well end up grabbing the Spider Tank too...

That's not to mention some of the older sets I've had my eye on recently...

Zeb can appear in another set (along with Sabine/Ahsoka/Ezra/etc), but I definitely agree about Kanan. 😕

WOW I was so wrong. They really picked a horrible time to release this list.

Swamp Speeder: I am super happy with Vaugh and 332nd troopers, will be getting either 5 or 11.  (helmet holes or not idc)
The Ghost: pass, I just don't care about it without Zeb and Sabine 
Republic Gunship: I am incredibly excited as this would be my first sealed gunship playset, getting 1 if they are phase 1 and 2 if they are phase 2.
Venator: pass


LEGO 75348 Mandalorian Fang Fighter vs. TIE Interceptor got leaked on youtube, it will have a tie fighter pilot, black astromech, Mando and 1 more figure. It can be found on youtube if you type lego 75348 and filter the results to this week.

Fang Fighter and TIE builds look solid, it's a shame the minifig selection isn't as epic as I'd hoped

Where are you seeing this??

Agree on Kanan specifically, because he's presumably not going to appear in any new material soon unless it's a flashback scene, and it seems unlikely that there would be a flashback scene substantial enough to actually warrant a set based off of it.

If it is Rebels based and they didn't want to include Zeb/Ezra/Sabine, I think my ideal figure lineup would've been Hera, Chopper, and then Kanan, AP-5, and like Ketsu or something, since Jacen and Quarrie weren't really major characters.  Of course, if it's Ahsoka based, it could end up making sense later (like how a Gonk droid being included in the BB shuttle didn't make a ton of sense until the show came out).

Thank you for the link, but I would recommend removing it and just describing where the video can be found.

I've been gone for like 2 weeks cause of finals and it took even longer to go through all the discussion but boi was it entertaining and I'm glad to be back :laugh_hard:

In more pressing news I just saw that the stuff promo bricks posted was real meaning this is the single greatest year of LSW in my adult collecting life. This takes me back to the waves of sets we used to get during peak Clone wars except this time I have a job and I can actually buy all of it. Personally, I'll be buying all of them but specifically 10 of the swamp speeder cause I live in the 332nd troopers. Also, I really hope that everyone who's talked about wanting prequel stuff and different clone battalions goes out and buys these sets cause the only way to actually get more is by showing TLG that we like this without wallets. I genuinely crying tears of joy nobody will fully understand how happy I am to get a Captain Vaughn because I think it could genuinely open TLG up to making more clone figs like him.

Minifigs for the Fang Fighter vs. TIE Interceptor are Din (with Darksaber), the leaked blue Mando (called a "Mandalorian Fleet Commander"), a TIE Pilot (appears to be the same design as in the Bomber), and an Imperial Astromech named R2-E6. 

Both ships look good, but the TIE Interceptor is definitely the stronger of the two. The entire back of the box was not shown in the video, so I am not sure if the Fang Fighter's wings can spin.

There are 3 videos on the channel and the entire back of the box was shown. (Don't think it can spin)

To be fair to LEGO, though, Kanan can appear in any number of Rebels sets, while Jacen and Quarrie (and Keysu, IF that is who the mystery character is) really cannot. 😕

That is disappointing.

Interceptor vs. Fang Fighter looks good build-wise, although the minifigs aren’t really interesting at all. I’d probably rather pick up the TIE Bomber and the Snub Fighter for the same price.

Bit disappointed w/ the fang fighter's fig selection and inability to spin, but it looks pretty good anyway. Shame that they didn't keep the Bomber's new cockpit style for this set and just went back to the other design.
