Honestly Yularen is kinda low on my list- I know the previous version is a little pricey now but if it's a choice between him or someone with never had (e.g. Motti or Tagge) I'll always pick having a new character. 

Since uniformed officers are so omnipresent in the Death Star scenes, I feel like we'll get a few. My prediction is a new Tarkin, Motti (everyone remembers his scene, fun alternate face), and an unnamed Imperial Navy Officer - specifically, the one who stood guard at the Detention Block.

I get it it’s a good chance to get characters not done but for me 90% of imperial officers are generic white guy in grey uniform which vast majority of casual fans would not know who’s who. I wouldn’t/ couldn’t care to tell them apart at least with Yularen he’s appeared in TCW, rebels and Andor and his white uniform is again unique to add something different to the set

That's very interesting.

The rank plaque isn't right (but when is it ever with lego imperial officers) but you can't tell me at least one of the officers with this head isn't supposed to be Tagge.

Unfortunately he can't have an alternate face due to the officer hat not covering the back of the head enough, but maybe we'll see him with a single face.

Motti never wears an officer cap at any point in the movie.

If he were included he'd definitely have a hairpiece, same goes for any of the other named officers from the original movie if they end up being included: Tarkin, Yularen, Tagge, etc.

The parts count of the Dark Falcon makes me think that they must have made some real improvements to the design, compared to the 2019 version. I don't expect they'll sell the novelty Dark Falcon for more than a year or two, so I bet we get a standard Falcon with some pretty big improvements by 2026.

I wonder if the Death Star build could be a multi-level thing with the back wall being a facade of a sphere section when viewed from the rear.  Like, think dollhouse style construction, so the front side is open to access the interior rooms, while the back side is gray walls with a little bit of curvature.  I don't know how feasible that is with the piece count, but that would probably be the best way to include the turbolaser.

My mistake- you're right.

I believe the same, especially considering they've been running the TROS falcon for almost 5 years now. 

Ironically I'm at the point where I want them to do a new OT falcon, which is funny because most of this forum seems to hate re-releases, but aside from my general subscription to the "kids should almost always be able to purchase an X-wing, TIE, Falcon, and Jedi Starfighter without buying secondhand", the only falcon I've got is the TROS falcon, and while the 4x6 wedges are an excellent step in the right direction, there's still room for improvement (and even though we're reaching 5 years I still never finished modding it to have the OT design)

Bad Batch Season 3 trailer dropped.

 

 

We got appearances of a Turbo Tank, V-Wings, and Commander Wolffe. Not to mention another surprise at the end that'd be cool to see in Lego.

  • I've seen a lot speculation about Wolffe because Fox, Palpatine, Rex, and others appeared in the new Clone design in a Star Wars mobile game a while back.
  • I've seen a lot speculation about a new Turbo Tank and, additionally, it including Wolfpack troopers.
  • I've seen a lot speculation about a new V-Wing with Commando and/or TK Trooper(s).

I've been hopeful about these but I wasn't sold on them happening. Well, all 3 just got a big boost.

 

A Clone Wars Turbo Tank that has topical Wolfpack overlap + a Bad Batch Imperial V-Wing would be a great (while still relatively minimal) way to conclude the Lego coverage of the series.

 

I just really, really hope they address the kama issue if we only get Wolffe and no new Wolfpack troopers. Then you could take the cloth kama off, buy a Wolfpack helmet (from the old AV-7 Cannon or 3rd party), and have yourself a modern enough Wolfpack trooper. That's not do-able if Wolffe has a printed Kama.

Maybe next year, especially the turbo tank, we don’t appear to have a September wave this year.

I feel like if they put any parts at all into the exterior it'll be light gray walls done with curved slopes, however for stability's sake I doubt it'll be any more spherical than that

Yeah, based on the leaks especially, this year is unlikely.

Lucasfilm seems to keep TLG in the dark a lot. Based on recent sets/years, it's possible Lego just sometimes only receives hints about vehicles/characters to revisit (e.g. Mandalorian Starfighter for Clone Wars + Mando Season 2, Cad Bane for Bad Batch + Book of Boba Fett, maybe even the Republic Gunship for the Grogu-Coruscant flashback).

Since the Justifer presumably didn’t go so well previously, they might've been hesitant BUT given that the larger vehicle is already popular on its own, and smaller vehicle is a low-priced ship that's been in a fair amount of media now... I could see the BBS3 appearance(s) making them topical enough for TLG to give them the green-light for 2025.

If they do the turbo tank with shiny clones it could also double as a ROTS set for the 20th anniversary.

Crosshair is in his OG armor in the trailer really hope LEGO gives us this in the future to complete the crew(2024 hopefully)Wolfee and the turbo tank are long overdue and would pair nicely as well.

It’ll likely come with the 41st. I know it’s a far cry but a UCS turbo tank would be my dream set next to an MTT

It seems to be an HCVw A9 in the trailer, not the HAVw A6 from RotS.

I’m surprised there hasn’t been more TBB sets especially as we seem to be in a boom time for P2 clones. I’m partial to a V-wing, and I don’t have a turbo tank and I had my hopes on one being the big summer set this year. Maybe next year we might get a couple as remakes of v wings and turbo tanks but based on different characters like the last lot of clone related sets we’ve had in the past 3 years. 
 

honestly though I think if Lego ever intended to release anymore TBB sets for the final series March/May waves would have been the perfect logical time to release them and as we know most sets until August now I think we’ve missed an opportunity with these series for some good sets

At the end of the day, the OT will always be the best selling sub genre of Star Wars sets. Lego very likely prioritizes these and mitigate their risk towards things like Andor, TBB, etc. that don't reach as wide of an audience

We need Clone Commando and TK trooper battle packs!
Also, 

 

She is alive!? The Dark Disciple arc takes place before the rise of the Empire (as Dooku is still alive), so Ventress should have already been dead. She could have been revived with Nightsister Magick, but I feel like she would have had green eyes or something of that nature if that were the case. This may just be a retcon, which I am fine with - Especially since Ahsoka is featuring the Nightsisters heavily!

It’s true, also one of the few downsides of having so much SW content being released these days. I can only imagine what a full Jedi fallen order, full TBB, full Andor and even a full TBOBF waves would look like. 
 

If anyone from Lego is reading this all series need the film wave treatment that new releases get. I don’t who you guys need to talk to but sort it out :)

It was absolutely shocking to me that they revealed this in the trailer, albeit likely accidentally. 

Spoiler

If crosshair's rejoining the team that soon, I can't wait to see what's happening this season.

Lego seems to be making up for the weird prevalence of the 41st by just not including them at all since lego's "put clones in everything" era began. I wouldn't be surprised if we do end up getting the wolfpack before them, even if not in a Turbo Tank.

I can promise you this has absolutely zero bearing on whether or not lego releases a turbo tank anytime soon. Most casual FANS wouldn't notice this, lego knows the average consumer will not care in the slightest.

Hopefully we at least get a battle pack with something like 2x TK trooper, 1x commando, 1x elite trooper.

As much as I'd like a full wave of bad batch, there's too much material releasing. If lego made a full wave for each series that released, that would be the majority of sets each year dedicated to new material, and I can promise you that sales wouldn't be as good as they are for pumping out stuff everyone recognizes.

To be fair they were last represented in 2019 sets, albeit in the old, pre-2020 angry clone style. I think next year’s ROTS anniversary would be a good excuse to see them again.

Wouldn't surprise me if the turbo tank scene shown at the beginning of the trailer is just part of a random mission that opens episode 1 of the season, kind of like how the beach crabs from the season trailer were prominent but ultimately part of a throwaway mission to open season 2. Not that that would stop Lego from making a tank, if anything it might even make it more likely as a potential TBB set as Lego seems to like (or are given permission) to do fairly unspoilery early in the season sets as tie-ins.

Spoiler

Wonder if 4L bars in trans-yellow will now see a big price jump on BrickLink?? :head_back:

I don't think the Dark Falcon will stick around for much longer than a single year. So if it retires around until the end of 2025, I could see Lego holding off on having a play-scale Falcon on shelves for a year so they can do a new "special" classic one for the 50th Anniversary of Star Wars/ANH in 2027, and then that one can stick around for a few years like TROS one did. I'm honestly surprised that they didn't replace TROS one with one with OT characters sooner honestly.

 

I'm not a huge fan of the show, but I'm interested to see how Season 3 ends The Bad Batch storyline. Very little chance that Lego will do anything else for TBB sadly, so here's to hoping that the next ongoing animated series, whatever it may be, will have better luck. Tin foil hat time, but the fact that it ends right before May the 4th makes me wonder if we could get an announcement for the next animated project after the finale ends (not counting TOTJ Season 2). Similar to how TCW S7 partially served as a backdoor pilot of sorts for The Bad Batch series, I wonder if the reappearance of a certain character will lead to another TCW spinoff of sorts if you catch my drift.

Specifically an adaptation (and possible continuation?) of Dark Disciple. I have thought it was interesting how much more Asajj Ventress has been appearing as of late. She had a live-action namedrop in Ahsoka and has been appearing in more books and comics in the last few years. Maybe a psuedo-buildup to see more of her character.

Seriously, I can't even get a single, PROPER tBoBF set, let alone one based on the Battle of Mos Espa, and as bad as we all want the Fondor Haulcraft, that's sadly never going to happen either, I feel. We'll be lucky if we get a single set based on the final season of Bad Batch at this point.
