  1. [MOC] [WIP] The Command of the AT-AT

    Just checking in and hope all is well! I'm currently working on recreating your excellently designed snow speeder. I've got a stud.io file complete just need to order parts. Have you worked on your AT AT in the last year? No doubt you had more important things to do. It's hard to make time for Lego anymore.

    I won't believe the rumors until we have more evidence, but the V19 set sounds like it's describing a republic attack shuttle rather than the V19 or a RGS.
  3. TIE Fighter & TIE Interceptor

    These are definitely next on the build list! Absolutley beautiful!

    I'm looking forward to whatever that winking smile is suggesting

    Huh, as excited as I am that we are getting a new X-wing, I've got some serious reservations about it. It's great that they're finally modeling the correct sized engines and have the astromech in the correct seating position, but it just seems a little chubby around the astromech port. Also, I find it odd that they copied the same construction from the recent T70s for the laser canons as well as the forward fuselage. There's a lot of excellent new parts that have come out in the last few years that could achieve better shaping for the nose and fuselage and I find it somewhat strange that the designer didn't use them. I'm curious to see more of it at Toyfair and better assess it in hand when I buy one, or two, or more haha. The new sand crawler is pretty great. Ironically I was looking for a UCS one last week. Now the battle pack makes sense with the Jawas. The 501st construction figure with AT RT is really a neat inclusion. I didn't see that coming. What's the expected price on that? I'm thinking $80-100 USD? Also, are the sets coming out in August? That's what the catalogue states, but I remember last years summer wave came out around May - June in the US.

    Yes, thank you very much gentlemen @Milan and @Stash2Sixx. You don't hear as much praise as you mods deserve for your work. Thanks again for resolving the problem as soon as you were able!
  7. Jango & Boba - Merry Christmas

    I love the candle on the fireplace mantel. Such a great use of parts!

    Thanks for the great pics of the cantina! Are those new hinge pieces connecting the rooms in the cantina set? I haven't seen those pieces before.
  10. What's your recent LEGO Star Wars Purchase?

    Color me Impressed! That's a steal!
  11. Definitely going to take longer than 12 parsecs.
  12. @BigEl and @Lahh001: Thank you very much gentlemen for enlightening me on the subject. I appreciate it!
  13. I'm hoping the best for everyone in their attempt to get the set within the next couple of days! Stay positive and remember if you don't get one on release day, you'll have many opportunities to get the set during its shelf life. Wish I could go and see the wheel cart box in person. Biggest set they have ever made, and I'm more interested in the box. Help me. If anyone attends the launch events, would it be appropriate to post pics here? I think I'm not the only one who'd like to see photos. Also, let us know if you're successful. Best of luck people! Concerning the exclusive VIP card what exactly does LEGO imply with this statement: "You'll be entitled to Star Wars themed offers, gift with purchases, and more." Does anyone know what entitled Star Wars themed offers a cardholder would be entitled to, that say a normal VIP member would not? Also, is the gift with purchase just VIP points? This statement is incredibly confusing to me. I'm currently a VIP member, as I'm sure everyone on here is, but it sounds like only holders of the exclusive falcon card get certain promotions going forward. Is there any more news or clarification about this statement?
  14. Future Star Wars Sets

    After looking at the second trailer rebel's last season, we definitely need a tie bomber now considering this is the 2nd year in a row it has popped up. There's x wings in the series now so who knows? Maybe we might get an OT x wing from rebels although I doubt it. It'd at least be a somewhat reasonable excuse to do an x wing again and we could get some new pilots to boot. The tie defender is back so that's definitely up there for them to do as well. There's a new AT DP looking walker with a disintegration beam on it that could be a set as well. That's about all I saw from the trailer that could warrant a set. However, with TLJ and the Han Solo movie coming out in the Spring, I think Lego has completely abandoned ship as far as rebels is concerned. Kind of a shame really, as they could have made some great sets from the later seasons. We're getting too many movies and series anymore for all vehicles to be covered. I hope we'll get callbacks like you suggest because we need some of these ships as sets. I'm still holding out for cloud city. I know many people believe it's not likely that a modern rendition of the playset could make a comeback, especially with he carbon freezing chamber being it's own kit, but I'm going to hold out hope. They had the final duel kit out the same time the death star playset was out, and they had the hoth attack set out at the same time as the assault on hoth playset. They could include a twin pod cloud car and add a couple of rooms like the one where 3PO gets busted and the entryway rotunda where luke runs into boba, in addition to what the original set had--just updated and more detailed--for around $300? They could include R2, Luke, Vader, 2 stormtroopers, 2 cloud city guards, Lobot, Wilrow hood, 2 ugnaughts, Han, Chewie, Leia, Lando, Cloud car pilot, some cloud city citizens too?
