  1. I see what you mean, but even Sideshow, or Hot Toys for that matter, is a poor example. I mean, when is the next cycle for the OT stormtroopers gonna be? Cause I wasn't collecting HT back then and I would like a couple now ... and demand is clearly there. See what I mean?
  2. Please don't give them ideas. I'm a figma and figuarts collector as well, and Im pretty ambivalent about the supposed benefits of preordering. What if, as often happens with the Japanese stuff, preorders close early and you don't get your order in? It happens often with the more popular figures. Would hate it to happen with Lego. The beauty of collecting Lego is that the stuff is always readily available, with the rarest exceptions like the Saturn V set and this one, and it's only a matger of time till they're available again. On the other hand, as you surely know, goodluck getting your hands on a figma once they're sold out, unless you buy it for double the price on the aftermarket.

    Online they are. Hopefully the EU will eventually see to these silly geoblocking shenaningans on the part of companies though.

    Yeah. As someone has already suggested, probably those who still live with their mother.
  5. Voltron & Ship in Bottle IDEAS approved

    Love the Voltron. Hopefully it's the classic version they'll go for, not the reboot. I can't understand all the hate either way. Lego fans can be a boring fuddy duddy bunch sometimes.

    I doubt the last jedi will do as well as the force awakens. the hype will be much less this time around, as will the excitement.

    The MF has been unavailable for YEARS. The Sandcrawler has only recently reached the EOL after being available for much longer than the MF ever was. I managed to get one with X3 Vip points or something like that, last year.
  8. What's your recent LEGO Star Wars Purchase?

    Finally pulled the trigger on Krennic's shuttle. 60€ from Amazon.de. Possibly the best model from that wave, but no way was I gonna buy it at full price.

    people who buy these sets (first day buy!) and then spend the run-up to the release of the UCS MF complaining about not having the funds, deserve a thwack on the head.

    R2 will be in Yoda's Hut. He can't also be in the Jawa battlepack. Or can he? Are there precedents to the same named character appearing in more sets from the same wave?
  11. LEGO Star Wars 2017 Pictures and Rumors

    a droid will surely be R2D2 ... oh well, you cna't have too big an R2 army.
  12. LEGO Star Wars 2017 Pictures and Rumors

    ha, no way. i'll wait for double vip points. 80 euro-ish worth of vip points, almost enough to get a decent lego ideas set, or half a modular house. ive been waiting for years, i can wait a couple extra months.

    I can imagine many people not wanting to buy it ... until it's discontinued. Then off to sell a kidney to buy one from the secondary market, or bricklinking it for double the price (unless they go for a fuchsia satellite dish or something like that). Me, I will be buying one for sure. Anyone who wants one badly, and is squandering his lego money on the recent underwhelming waves instead of saving up for the UCS MF and then complains about the price ... eh ...

    what a lame calendar this year. bought six last year. this year probably only one, if.
