The Tantive IV set is not a diorama though, it's a playset :wink:

Righty-o, time to delete Discord after all that chaos. @Classic_Spaceman, kudos for trying to keep track of it all during the weekend, it’s much appreciated.

Now that we ‘know’ the Temple and Z-95 are completely false, the summer wave therefore remains completely unknown. 

Extremely bummed out that the Chimaera ‘leak’ was completely fake, but joke’s on me after what we’ve seen this weekend. I do wonder how many of the reputable leakers know what’s coming next August.

Which makes sense. It‘s a bit too early for any info besides set numbers and price points, considering we usually only get good info on the August wave in spring :classic:

Yeah the other two being fake was understandable. Now, the headhunter was at least realistic, but it still seemed too early. 

Would that mean these other sets are may? I could honestly see the Rex set being january if it wasn't for how late in the game we found out about it.

The “no ahsoka sets” was a red flag for me. Fan requests for Thrawn have to be at least as popular as fan requests for Gideon

Not that they couldn't have hypothetically had something planned before, but if they didn't, we've seen time and time again that lego's turnaround time is over a year. No Way Home, Mando S3, etc. I would be shocked if something as big as the Chimera released less than a year after it's appearance in Ahsoka.

Was there anything in specific that ruled out the Z-95 other than it sounding unrealistic?

So, which info came from that disputed source again? The Z-95, Jedi Temple, and “nO aHsOkA sEtS iN 2024” rumours, right?

Update: The original source of the rumours said that they are real, but the person who reposted the rumours on Discord double-checked with their own sources, and none of them had heard of the Z-95 or Jedi Temple sets. I am now convinced that these two sets are fake, and that any future information from this original source should be questioned until a more legitimate source backs it up. 

On that note, the original source has now said that we are getting an Endor bunker set (75389, $799.99); Includes the bunker, a small AT-ST, and a small Ewok catapult - Minifigs: Endor Han, Endor Leia, Chewbacca, R2-D2, C-3PO, Wicket, Logray, Kazak, 1x Endor Rebel Trooper, 1x AT-ST Driver, 2x Imperial Officers (black uniform). 
IMO, this is also fake; not only is the price absurdly high for what is included, the hero-villain balance is off - Where are the speeder bikes, Scout Troopers, and Stormtroopers?? 

Edit: The price is now $170, but I am still suspicious.

The logic is sound, but this also makes me think of examples like Mando S2. The ‘spoiler’ sets for the season released less than a year after the show aired. 

Overall, I think the distinction lies in whether or not Lego’s first exposure to certain things for the first time is on the big / small screen (No Way Home and Luke’s appearance in Mando S2 come to mind, though outside of his appearance the Light Cruiser set is more or less fully accurate to the finale). I know there’s that Brick Fanatics article on Mando S3 from earlier this year that mentions the LSW Design Team’s reaction to the finale, but it doesn’t strike me as them necessarily saying they saw all this stuff for the first time when we as consumers did.

Plus, given the June release date for the spoiler Mando S3 sets coupled with the usual 18-24 month turnover time to conceptualise and produce a set (plus the litany of new moulds we’re supposedly getting in those two spoiler sets), it seems likely the LSW design team were given material to work with prior to April 2023.

Tying back to Ahsoka, we’ve already seen from Funko and Hasbro that toys based on Enoch, the Night Troopers, and Thrawn are already pipelined. I’m sure these characters weren’t completely withheld from licensees until everyone saw them during the spoiler episodes of the show. But hey, when it comes to Lego, who knows?

I’m rambling a lot of words to basically reiterate for the thousandth time how much I’d love more sets from the show lol.

Reaching out on behalf of the server. 

 

Brick Tap does not exist to serve the Eurobricks community. Go ahead and delete if you want. We, the admin team only make posts when we're confident in our news/reveals section, or posts on the reddit community. Discussion in the channels is just merely discussion of rumors and leaks, when we have decided something is confident enough to confirm, we make posts. Leakers of any credibility are welcome to talk about the rumors they've heard about in the server, but we don't confirm/deny them until we've made a post. 

 

The jedi temple and z95 rumors are completely fake.

 

Harassment of users, and brigading for your own gain is not tolerated in the Brick Tap community. Please leave our members alone. Playing telephone between different platforms helps no one.

Sure, it may not have been the first time they saw this stuff (it certainly wasn't the first us fans had heard of it, we'd known Thrawn would have kintsugi stormtroopers and a golden-faced stormtrooper captain for FOREVER before the show premiered) but unless this is the first time they've been provided with the info, I can't see us getting stuff before september at the absolute earliest, as much as I'd love it.

Assuming they knew: Unless this is the first time they've been given that, we can look at their track record for older sets. Mando S3- 14 month turnaround for 2 small sets. Mando S2- 9 month turnaround for less spoilery sets- I think the only thing not in trailers was the Dark Trooper- 16 month turnaround for fully spoiler set. All that said, I think the absolute earliest we could see something like the Chimera is September 2024, but I wouldn't get my hopes up for any spoiler content before January 2025.

TBOBF is an interesting outlier here, with Mando's N-1 releasing only 6 months after it aired, but I have to assume they knew about it well beforehand and lucasfilm didn't consider it a spoiler in the way they did all this other stuff.

Assuming they didn't know: Look at how long it took them to do Baby Yoda, maybe the single most merchandisable thing to happen to star wars since it's inception. Took almost a full year to add the fig to a set that was almost certainly already coming, and like 10 months just to get a brickheadz out.

It's also an absurd amount of detail for something assumably coming in 11 months.

Why are we giving this guy any attention? Does he have any record at all?

Honestly it sounds realistic enough to me but the issue was the source had absolutely no reliability as far as I'm aware. It'd be like me saying that they're doing a new Millenium Falcon this summer. It sounds plausible enough, but I have no actual info on it, and no record of getting things right.

@Kaijumeister did absolutely nothing like this on eurobricks. No one is harassing members or anything on this site, unless it's all happening via direct message.

Then again, I'm fairly certain I heard somewhere that the N-1's development was very rushed. People were churning out MOCs of that thing within hours of its first appearance, and everyone I talked to was dying for a set of it. Furthermore, the end product did seem like it was probably designed very quickly, and things like the darksaber remaining not-updated was probably also because of that.

To my know knowledge, no one has harassed any users or brigaded the server; the server is public, and Eurobricks members who join for the information available should be allowed to do so. Also, cross-platform telephone is inherent to the discussion of leaks. 🫤

Apparently he did prior to posting the Z-95 and Jedi Temple, which is why they were believed so readily.

Unhelpful vague statements are also not productive. I know people don't like this sentiment but im glad more people are speaking out about this. I'd rather the discussion be dead than filled with aimless speculation about a very open ended remark by someone who was claimed to be reliable. It happens every year on these forums with the same counter arguments  I stand by my point and will drop this topic to discuss credible information that comes out

I personally find the tabloid style leaks “you guys won’t believe this upcoming set/minifigure!” with no hints or direction to be annoying and not conducive to a productive discussion

Just wait until you all find out who does come in 75388.” is as clickbaity as can be. It’s not cryptic, there’s nothing to decipher, which is why the conversation derailed to this point where we’re talking about literal blue curtains.

100% with you. Its always done for clout, cm4sci and many others acted the same and were also as credible. Theres always someone willing to prove they could get the same prelim images with enough digging and connections.

If someone is being vague to protect a job then don't say anything, fake information has been spread to pinpoint inside leakers. Otherwise give an obvious pointer through a reference, not this blue certain vague stuff

Here's my personal opinon on the leaker topic (mods please delete if it doesn't fit here):

If a leaker has something to say, then say it. Evereything else is kindergarden level. Reading LSW threads in this forum can be tiring when there is endless speculation about which leaker said what on reddit/insta/discord and whatnot.

Either say whats actually going on with the set or don’t say anything at all, some leakers just enjoy watching useless speculation and arguments about it

Personally not a fan of the bible, but good on you for not taking any of that stuff to heart. We love you, mate. Your hints are much appreciated.

I think it originated on Discord, and now The Brick Reporter has picked it up. It could be legit, but it also feels like a safe bet for a fake leak. We wait. 
 

BTW, there is no anniversary Minifig in Grogu’s escape (Beq, Grogu, 2x Shocks) - Are Fives and Malak the only ones that we are getting?? @Renown

A quick search in your Discord server unearths a comment from yourself which states: "funny that that renown guy implied the z95 was real tho", accompanied by some daft reaction image of Jake Gyllenhaal from the "my reaction to that information" meme. 

I've taken the liberty of quoting my original post, and the post to which it was replying, to course correct the narrative questioning my authenticity that you're peddling in your Discord server. Although I think most people with half a brain could discern this, I'd better clarify that my initial response to Classic_Spaceman was in relation to his direct question for me, and was not entertaining this Z-95 rumour. Now, at this moment in time, I don't know enough about the contents of 75388 to say for certain if it is or is not a Z-95; it could well be, and might well be within the realm of possibility for all I know, *at this moment in time*. That said, I do know enough about the fig selection in 75388 to say that the community is in for a nice surprise. I'll leave it at that for now. 

In brief; you seemingly question my track record in your backwater Discord server, and are yet to proffer any information of your own. So, you'd best get your cards on the table.
