  1. LEGO Star Wars 2017 Pictures and Rumors

    I've seen people mention a "winter village" set a few times. I don't follow the seasonal stuff so I probably don't know what I'm talking about I don't think that one counts... or maybe it does and we're going to get extremely lucky. (That Chima one was given away as a prize to a competition, was it not?)

    I think this pretty much confirms what many of us have been thinking. This will be the largest set ever... unless it refers to the winter village.

    Sorry, just saw "1 post" and assumed :/. Anyway, just putting it out there that LEGO store usually aren't the most reliable sources so we don't have another 20 pages of people asking questions that don't have answers. Can't wait to see photos, my wallet is ready :P

    While I don't doubt that the new MF will be exactly as described above, I'm going to be patient and wait for pictures instead of taking the word of someone who just created their account, sorry.

    Look sir, droids! Excellent work. Love the way you've done the sand!

    If only LEGO was as simple as the exchange rate when it comes to the larger sets. Honestly, I was expecting $1400-$1600 but seeing that excel chart I did up gives me hope. Who knows, maybe we'll get lucky with this one?

    Just popping this here in case anyone wants to look. I was bored and thinking about how much the Falcon could cost in AUD (and even though I'm usually against price per part ratio I used it anyway) so I did up a spreadsheet that I think gives us a good look at what the possible piece count could be. I've worked this out based on the average of 11 high end licensed system sets' price per piece ratio in both AUD and USD and used the maximum and minimum to exclude some data. If the set does not stray from the average price per part, the set will most likely be 7500-7600 parts and will be $1200-$1300 AUD. If not, based on the data I can say it will almost certainly be above 6200 pieces and can't be more than $1300 AUD. Here's the workbook on google docs

    Really? I was 100% positive that it was $980 retail but just went on sale that often that it was never at that price. Hopefully the new one is less than $1400 AUD (still a good deal compared to the prices of the last one).

    Price per piece is a horrible indicator of value. This set could be anywhere between 6500-8500 pieces and still fall in the range as mentioned above. What we would be better off looking at is the weights of the boxes, but I doubt anyone would be able to figure out the distribution of large/small parts. Either way, this set is probably going to crack the 6k benchmark and end up being the largest set of all time, isn't that enough?

    +1 to shop.lego.com. Really the only way to get sets like this without waiting for them to maybe show up in Myer or Toys R Us. Plus, through s@h you can get VIP points and special polybag promos which you can't get elsewhere in Aus.

    *waits patiently for someone to x-ray the new photo*
  12. Yoda and R2 will most likely be the same as always (there is the possibility that R2 could be a muddy variant but I doubt it), Luke will probably be the only new figure for the set.
  13. LEGO Star Wars 2017 Pictures and Rumors

    This is my thoughts exactly (I've been saving all year too). The Falcon set has always been a statement piece to me. "I love LEGO and Star Wars so much, here's a full blown minifigure scale Millennium Falcon." I think I'm one of the few who wants this new one to be exactly like the old one. (I even prefer a brick built cockpit to the moulded one)

    Chinese courts are notorious for siding with companies from China in cases like this one. Here's one of many instances where a Chinese manufacturer stole another company's designs and got away with it.

    Most likely September , but the case is in the Chinese courts so don't expect a fair decision
