  1. That's about how I expected it to look. overall it looks really good and they packed a lot of rooms into such a small space. However many of the interior space just doesn't look like what I expect from modern LEGO sets many of the rooms look like something designed from a decade ago. Definitely not as much detail as I would expect nor is there enough smooth, curved areas for such an iconic sleek location. The minifig selection is great although I am disappointed Lobot didn't get a new mold for his head and that they didn't remold Han frozen in Carbonite, but I absolutely love that midi-scale Slave 1. I like the new branding as this isn't truly a UCS in the same way that the Death Star and Hoth sets weren't UCS. Overall it could've been much better but it's nowhere near Hoth levels of disappointment. I'll be skipping it in favor of finally getting the UCS Slave 1 before it's gone.
  2. I'm still not thrilled by the prospect of a 3rd repeat of the AT-AP and Droid Gunship but I never got the previous ones. If these turn out really well I might have to pick up the AT-AP at least, especially if the minifig list is to be believed. I really hope we get a new Plo Koon head mold as the old one never quite looked right to me. I would still vastly prefer different Clone Wars vehicles though.
  3. Not super thrilled about getting yet another Droid Gunship and AT-AP when we've had those remade already and to a satisfying degree when there are so many other Clone Wars era vehicles that could be made for the first time or are in far greater demand/need for updating. I really hope those are wrong or mistranslated. The 2 battlepacks sound awesome though! Other than that it's a giant "meh" so far for me.
  4. It's not technically a UCS in the same way that the BB-8 isn't UCS but it is designed to be a UCS what with the high level of detail and the UCS plagues and accompanying minifig. They are for all intents and purposes UCS.
  5. I agree on both of those points though that battlepack sounded too good to be true, I am reminded of the Bounty Hunter pack courtesy of the Freemaker Adventures. Man the announcement really hit me in the feels, best news I've heard in a long time. I am really looking forward to seeing more sets based on the show and I suspect they'll continue making some based on past episodes in addition to the new ones.
  6. Thanks for the link. Brick Ministry did a speed build of the set but he didn't put the wings on all the way. Honestly this is my most anticipated of the new sets. I absolutely loves the Clone Wars era and I missed out on the first one and the new one is so much better. It's a great value too and I'm curious to see how it compares to the Blue Angel which was twice the price. I would've loved to see one more minifig but that's just me wanting more.

    Wow I love this set! Two awesome looking mechs(though Venom's is really just a large mass of symbiote) and all of the new web blast pieces are awesome. I think this was a missed opportunity to give us a proper bigfig Venom but I guess they kinda did in a way. It's great to get Spider-Gwen but she could've used more printing. It's cool to get her but I would've been super excited for a Spider-Man 2099, maybe in a future(heh) set. $50 seems very generous indeed, a great value. I'm very happy they managed to squeeze in at least one comic-based set in between all the movie stuff. I'm now more hopeful that we might get that Daredevil minifig that was teased in the Sanctum set.

    I like the exclusive Ant-Man set, the bust looks really cool. I don't really see any of these exclusive sets selling well tbh. There's nothing in them that a person couldn't just bricklink for a fraction of the price. I'm all for no exclusive figures but no exclusive printed pieces makes it pretty hard to justify spending so much on a fancy box.

    Yeah I love the movie sets but it's frustrating to see DC get all of these comic-based sets that allow for more flexibility with characters. I'm dying for Daredevil and Moon Knight figures! We have all the right pieces for them too with the Black Panther ears flipped around for horns, 3L bars for batons and those new crescent blade pieces from Ninjago for Moon Knight. Such potential...

    I'm really digging this set! I fully expect Firefly's helmet to be reused with Wasp for the Avengers 4 sets.
  11. This might have been discussed awhile back but I can't seem to find anything. I've been comparing pictures of the AT Hauler to pictures of the AT-ST from the RO wave(I'm a hundred miles from home for a few days right now otherwise I'd be able to look over my copy of the set) but does it look to anyone like the Hauler might be able to carry the AT-ST? If not, it could probably be easily modded but it would be far better if it could do that right out of the box. It'd be rather unfortunate if it can't be used for its original intent but it wouldn't surprise me if it can't. It would certainly make the set more enticing to me than it already is, I already like it but I'm on the fence about whether or not to get it.
  12. I was expecting more from the Conveyex but what we get looks good. For the price we really should've gotten at least one more section of the train. The AT Hauler looks great and the Swoop bike set looks great. I also like that all 3 of these sets can be brought together to pretty much get the whole sequence of events for that part of the film.
  13. Who knows, maybe we'll get a set later that features the scene in Dryden's office toward the end of the film. It'd be especially great if it featured both Dryden Vos and an updated Maul! Chances are slim though considering we haven't gotten anything for Rogue One since the initial wave and I doubt we will for a long time if ever and I suspect Solo and other anthology films will follow the same trend.
  14. The swoop bike set looks really good and for $30 USD seems like a reasonable price for a Star Wars set. I'm not a fan of the Brickheads but I have to have that Boba Fett. It looks better than the comic con exclusive one and I especially like the use of those new 2x2 triangle tiles for the helmet. Aside from this, the only way LEGO is going to get me to buy a Brickhead is if they decide to do a Ghost Rider one and I don't see that happening anytime soon.
  15. I would've thought the Conveyex set would be bigger and more expensive than the Hauler, that thing does NOT look like it's $90, sheesh. I do really like it though. Hmmm idk, the Mimban Stormtrooper helmet is barely different from the standard one yet we got a new mold for it. It wouldn't surprise me though if they reused it but it would be really unfortunate.
