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

Recommended Posts

Not going to quote a bunch of folks here.  Honestly too time consuming from my perspective.  

I appreciate that we are finally getting sort of back on track with the discussions about Lego and what the future may hold for the star wars lines.  My only comment on the folks who give us hints, and it has been said already, is let them provide their hints.  We are all able to separate the wheat from the chaff in order to determine who to trust and who not to trust.  We don't need to bash anyone for what they bring.  Time will always sort things out.    Ok, off my soapbox.

I have noticed discussion on what could come out of Andor for future sets that would appeal to kids.  I actually see quite a few other areas that would make a good "play set" for kids outside of the haulcraft.  One is the Quad Jumper after they make the escape from prison.  The two fishermen would be an interesting set of minifigs.  Also the Quad Jumper could tie into the one that gets blown up in TFA.  Another one could be the "Heist on Aldhani"  maybe focusing on the ship and the escape rail.   And finally, something related to the Narkina 5 prison room.  (now admittedly this may not make the greatest play set)

For Ashoka there seems to me to be a lot that could be done to create sets with what hasn't been done yet.  I could see something like the Noti moveable homes.  (That could give you Ezra).  Also the Eye of Sion would be a great set as well, (could give Thrawn and a great mother).   I agree the Chimera is likely going to be held for a future time.  

Those are just some thoughts I had.

Hate Marvel but the Avengers Tower looks phenomenal and I get jealous, I wish LSW wasn’t so damn focused on ships when its locations are just as iconic. Cantina released three years ago, where’s our version of Rivendell?

Cantina is a great set and once it retires I am sure another great MBS set will take it's place.

I too think that LSW is too much focused on ships! Seeing all those cool big location sets of other themes i come to thing what would be possible in the SW universe if we get sets with the quality of Rivendell, Sanctorum and alike as well as location playsets.

2025 at the earliest, unless Sail Barge rumors are false. Tbh I wouldn’t mind dropping a UCS set every other year if it meant an MBS set once every two years.

Ewok Village, Echo Base, Cloud City all reserve remakes, Jabba’s Palace, Yavin Temple, Petranaki Arena, Theed Palace, Jedi Temple, come on Lego.

I must admit I've always preferred location based sets over ships. I would love to get a Battle of Endor remake. I wonder if they would give us a Jedi Temple for the 20th Anniversary of RotS.

I used to think a UCS Venator was a pipe dream but we have one available right now. A MBS Geonosis set is definitely plausible in my eyes now. It would probably have to be preceded by some AOTC sets so they could reuse some of those figures in that set. 

 

I'm late to the party but getting fan-favorite characters for the 25th Anniversary of Lego Star Wars is a pleasant surprise. I never would have thought that we'd be getting an official Fives figure but here we are. I'm happy for the KOTOR fans to get Malak as well.

The Tantive IV playset is something that keeps getting better and better. A playset that could be expanded like the Dark Trooper hallway was already a lot more appealing than the previously rumored diorama format. Now we know that the set includes Vader, Antilles, TWO Stormies and TWO Rebel Fleet Troopers which is already a much more generous minifig selection than I was expecting. Now we know we're also getting a (presumably P2) Fives figure in this set!? Seven figures in a $55 playset? Honestly sounds like a pretty good deal for a Star Wars set. The only way things could get better is if we get a proper ANH Vader in the set since most of the figures will probably be reuses anyway.

Hopefully the build is pretty solid. I think I might get extras like the Dark Trooper Attack set to make a longer hallway. It'll also be great for army building. Between this set and the Clone/Battle Droid set, it's already looking like a pricy year for us army builders.

Yes Star Wars need more location sets but in the same breath this forum absolutely slaughtered the only location set we’ve got (rightly/wrongly so). It’s easy to do a location set badly but it isn’t as hard to cock up a ship design. Do Lego look at these forums? Do they listen to feedback?

Dang it! I was really hoping Fives was in the Invisible Hand. I have little interest in the Tantive IV hallway diorama. Guess I'll end up getting him on bricklink...

I agree, personally I like the MBS concept more than UCS in most aspects, I would rather have affordable midi-scale stuff for display-only vehicles instead of giant UCS sets, a midi-scale venator and invisible hand would be way cooler on a shelf than two giant UCS sets that take up half a room, midi scale is perfect for fleet building and creating space battle displays. Playscale stuff begs for good MBS location sets, it's one of the things that makes the cantina so great imo, you can create so many cool displays with other sets, the scythe or the falcon or the crest or best of all, luke's landspeeder.

I wish they hadn't whiffed so hard on that kenobi duel because I would have loved a duel set for the stonehenge starmap cliff with the trees from the first 5 episodes of Ahsoka, Lego does a great job doing fall colored trees. I am glad they are doing more dioramas because those are location based, but I just want them to do more locations in general.

OK, who scared @Renown away?! They were posting fairly regularly, then just vanished a few days ago after posting this:

A word to the wise: if you lack the intelligence to interpret the nuance in an "unnecessary riddle", it's probably best not to slate people in Discord servers. 

 

Star Wars fans and bullying people offline; name a better duo. 😠

I wondered the same thing 😔

I really enjoy the clues and trying to guess what could be coming next as the information drips through. 
 

On the topic of MBS, I think Hogwarts and Rivendell have solidified the concept of location based sets from fantasy themes being very popular, even if there aren’t two opposing factions.

I hope this will finally open the door to more location based sets like the Geonosis Arena and Jedi Temple, Theed etc

I think it's most likely he just finished the information he was comfortable giving out, but on the off-chance he did actually decide it wasn't worth getting insulted over... just reread the pages where he gave out the info.

I'll trade you a Fives for a Malak. No interest in the R2 set but I'm getting 2 Tantives.

He was posting about bring insulted, though, so I assume that he was paying attention.

No one should ever be insulted over something as trivial as Lego Star Wars... :pir-hmpf_bad:

I think this is what drove some leakers away in the past if I remember right. It’s the double edged sword we are lucky they share their info but when you go cryptic with the leaks people tend to get to obsessive with it the point of insults

If you don't insult people within the fandom regularly, can you truly be a Star Wars fan?
