    It is still the 20th anniversary of The Phantom Menace, and we just had a podracer. It isn't out of the question.

    That First Order megablaster in the advent calendar is pretty slick...

    I don't think the figures in the first TLJ wave were particularly bad. The only significant figures we didn't get in the first wave were Phasma and the Praetorian Guards, and of those the Praetorians were the only loss; Phasma was barely in the movie, and is essentially the same figure as the TFA version anyway. The only set the Praetorians would've been appropriate in is the First Order Star Destroyer. They could've replaced the medical droid and one of the stormtroopers with a pair of Praetorians, but even as it is five of the eight minifigs in that set were new, including Snoke, so I wouldn't say it needed it.

    That doesn’t have a Bricklink entry, so I guess it’s new. Where did you find it? Is it available now, or something for an upcoming event?

    There’s been an idea going around for ever that upcoming UCS sets are teased in some way on box art months or years before they come out, but if there’s any actual correlation there nobody’s ever presented any kind of evidence for it. My personal view is that if you want hints you’ll have better luck if you sacrifice a dove and examine its entrails, as the gods intended, than if you just look through officially released materials.

    That’s a good thought, but I don’t think it is. Look at the tips of the ears—this one has a 1x8 brick at the top edge, while the Target one has a 1x4 and then drops down. The eyes here are more recessed as well. This one looks somewhat larger overall. This thing, for anyone else who’d never heard of such a set: https://www.bricklink.com/v2/catalog/catalogitem.page?G=yoda&name=Yoda (Glued)&category=[Glued Model][Star Wars]#T=S&O={"iconly":0}

    The May the 4th set is the blockade runner. They aren't calling it a UCS, but there aren't going to be two >$200 Tantive IVs in one year.

    It wouldn't make any sense as a 20th Anniversary figure, but it should've been a chrome Phasma...

    I am certain that LEGO has done the surveys and crunched the numbers and determined that these brick-built things are more effective promotions than minifigs by some metric. I just have no idea what that metric is, or where all the people are who prefer a microbuild to an exclusive figure. There has to be some demographic that wants that and doesn't post online about it, or else LEGO wouldn't be marketing to them... printing a new figure is obviously expensive, but surely it isn't so many hundreds of times more so that these microbuild sets are cheaper for LEGO to manufacture.

    We know it's big, but lots of things are big. The Death Star, SSD, Sandcrawler, etc are all about that size. An AT-AT could also easily be in that range, or they could be making something from the Sequel Trilogy. I'm not trying to criticize anybody; we just need to keep in mind that there isn't any information distinguishing between those or anything else before people get their hearts set on an ISD for Christmas.

    All reasonable people understand that. But lots of people are total idiots incapable of understanding context, who take literally any mention of something that sounds like an upcoming set as God-given truth. See, for example, the rumored upcoming UCS Star Destroyer, which is based entirely on completely unfounded speculation from this very thread but has been repeated to such a degree that it’s treated as confirmed.

    The main Christmas minifig is the GONK droid, which is wrapped as a present. The porg just comes with a Santa hat.

    Wullffwarro and the other Wookiees in 75084 Wookiee Gunship each have a printed band on one arm, for some reason. Other isolated examples probably exist. But they're certainly not common.

    And the ship in Revenge of the Sith isn't even the Tantive IV. These things happen...

    It takes a while, but it definitely happens. The stickers on my 2002 Republic Gunship are disintegrating, and they've been stored in pretty ideal conditions in a dark closet for that whole time. The dark red stickers seem to be particularly prone to damage, for some reason; they aren't cracking yet on my 2011 Republic Frigate, but they're all peeling off, and several other sets are the same. I'm less worried about the big stickers on the Tantive's cockpit than the smaller ones running down the sides in that regard. The transparent stickers hold up very well in my experience, even after decades. They're just going to be really annoying to apply well in this instance. This is discussion directly relevant to a 2019 set, in the 2019 set discussion thread.
