  1. It seems you are thinking that the set will only consist of the cantina. We have no concrete evidence regarding this, but with the rumored piece-count of 3200+, its way more likely that the set will include some other elements of Mos Eisley than just the cantina. This was discussed some pages back. Either way, I am very much looking forward to this set, and I absolutely love the other SW location-based UCS/MBS sets.
  2. Figs look great IMO! I am honestly stunned TLC would make Ponda and dr. Evazan. I always thought that arm-choping scene was too bloody to be made into Lego form (even if the arm must stay on). If we get any more new moulded minifigs in this set, then it’s really a bonus IMHO
  3. We have discussed the minifigures, but not so much the build. At this point it is, ofcourse, just speculation, but given the 3200+ pieces is correct, then in my opinion the set must have other builds than just the cantina. Some rumors also also point towards a «Mos Eisley» set, and not just a cantina set. in my opinion its more likely That we will see a build containing parts of the streets of Mos Eisley, some allys, and some other buildings than the cantina Itself, maybe even a mini hangarbay/space-port. I personally would love the Ubrikkian trade tower to be part of the set. At 3200+ pieces its even likely that we would see some mini spaceship builds, a-la MBS cloud city and UCS DS.
  4. I agree 100% with your post.
  5. These are no good arguments. TLG have released many system-scale sets of ships that are way less «iconic», and that has way less screen-time than the TIE-bomber or the TIE-interceptor. For example the 75221 Imperial landing craft - a ship from the OT with almost no screen-time, and in the same (high) price-range that a doable TIE-bomber could (and should) be made. The comments from TLG employee in the interview regarding the TIE-Bomber is just utter nonsense. The Bomber is a very iconic craft, with lots of appearances in both the canon and the EU. Sadly, at this point, I think our best chance for a TIE-bomber would be if it appears in some new film or series. I’ll cross my fingers for an appearance in Mandalorian season 2.

    The triangle-shaped shadow in the teaser video is a pretty clear indication that it will be the Imperial Star Destroyer. I don't think we've had any solid proof like this before (just rumors). I would call that "new information"

    I agree that it is most likely that the rumored Star Destroyer will come with a small selection of minifigs and a partial interior. This is consistent with TLG recent releases of similar types of sets, like the 2011 UCS Super Star Destroyer, the UCS Slave-1 and the UCS Falcon. Regarding the leaked T-16 skyhopper pilot head: This looks like nice, and slightly better than the last skyhopper face. It looks like this will be yet another set with the old rebel helmet (since the visor is printed).

    Don't forget the old helmet also appeared in 75240 Major Vonreg’s TIE Fighter (as Buckets helmet). So that's 3 of the latest sets using the old helmet mould. We cant rule out the new helmet will be coming back in future sets, but as of now it seems the old helmet is the current one in use.

    Yeah, I agree - OT TIE bomber and interceptor are ridiculously overdue. But Vonreg's TIE does look good. Almost like the Royal guard TIE interceptors from the EU (or is that canon now, I don't remember) Leia looks absolutely superb. Strange that they waited so long before they introduced the skirt piece. Everything is pointing towards a remake of the UCS Tantive IV. The listed D2C set in May has 1768 pieces, wich is about 500 more than the original Tantive IV had. And that increase fits well with today's set designs / piece count (with more smaller parts, internal technic pieces, etc.).

    Yes, that is another possibility. But I really do not hope so. If TLG is going to be constantly "updating" existing sets (like the strange situation with the resistance bomber), that would be a total headache for us AFOLs...

    It was posted by the same guy that posted pictures of the new Shadowtrooper, new Leia, new Kazuda Xiono, etc. But yeah, I see your point... It could be made up from existing parts...

    Zuckuss looks just perfect. Great job TLG! I'm however very dissapointed with the new Imperial and Rebel Snowtroopers. It's so weird that Lego keeps changing colors... Now the rebels are back to tan legs and hats, and the imperials have tan hands... why? BTW: There is a picture of a new Han in Stormtrooper disguise minifig - with the new helmet. Does that mean the last unnamed anniversary set is a Death Star detention block set? Or is it the minifig from a polybag or something?

    I can think of a couple of villain ships from the existing movies that have NOT been coveren pretty well... Hint: It starts with "TIE" and ends with "bomber" or "interceptor"... Oh well, I can hope can't I...

    So many slave ones... Three in less than a year... I'm really looking forward to seeing what type of sets the Juniors are going to be... (Is it micro-scale, midi scale, or close to system-scale but with a simpler build...?).

    I haven't watched any of the new animated SW kid-shows. But that trailer looks very good. And, I love the potential this gives us for new SW ships, aliens and locations in Lego-form.

    Wow. IMO this looks beautiful. Dual-molded legs with side-printing for Han? Yes! Thank the maker! PS: I hope this opens the door for more side-printing/dual molded lego sw minifigures...

    I've been out of the loop for a week, and the news of the winter wave is just great. I always liked microfighters, wich is a great way to get minifigures. If the rumoured Slave-1 is true, then it may be likely that a mini Slave-1 is not included in the UCS Cloud City? (IMO that would be better, since it would leave more peace for the actual city) Oh, and I can't wait to hear what information is coming tomorrow!

    Most likely people employed at the factories that produce the minifigures / pieces, who stole them from work and are now selling them.

    Future Star Wars Minifigs

    I would love it if TLG would make the characters from the ongoing Star Wars Comic Series "Doctor Aphra" in minifig form. That would include: Dr. Chelli Lona Aphra 0-0-0 aka. "Tripple-o" (basically an evil version of C-3PO, in black with red eyes) BT-1 aka. "Bee Tee" (evil version of R2-D2) Black Krrsantan (an evil Wookie bounty hunter) I know it's highly unlikely with sets based of this comic series, but you newer know with Lego. We've had sets from "The Old republic", ships like the TIE-defender and the E-wing (jek-14's stealth starfighter), etc. It's also possible we could get the charachters in polybags, or maybe a "look-a-like-charachter" from other Lego SW series like "The Yoda chronichles". But, yeah, still pretty unlikely.

    Both are sold in Norway (i got them both last week, from a normal toy shop).

    I guess it’s supposed to be the Ugnaught on the left. I don’t know his name. I dont think the face-printing on the leaked minifig is very accurate though...

    We all know that today’s sets use a lot more smaller bricks, and have more details than sets did 15 years ago. The price per brick has also gone up. My point is: The new CC will not be close to five times as big as the CC from 2003.

    But that means it will be small! No! The Death Star was €500, and that was 2 years ago... I don’t want to be the guy that says «it’s too cheap!» (LOL), but i want the Cloud City set to be a large UCS, not a small/medium one... I now fear the set will be closer to Assult on Hoth, rather than the last Death Star.

    So the name "Imperial AT-hauler" obviously means it carries imperial AT's. Does that also mean the lego version will somehow fit together with an AT-vehicle? Perhaps a yet unreleased AT-vehicle?
