  1. As far as we know, there's a total of 7 being released in August: 75214 - Anakin's Jedi Starfighter 75215 - Confidential 75216 - Confidential 75217 - Confidential 75218 - X-Wing Starfighter 75219 - Confidential 75220 - Sandcrawler All of the "Confidential" sets are likely from TLJ.
  2. I am absolutely shocked at how good these sets look. Sometimes it feels like TLG has a completely different team working on the anthology film sets. The TFA and TLJ waves are somewhat lackluster overall compared to Rogue One and Solo.
  3. It's a little strange to me that 75204 is already on the shelves. Wasn't the official release date January 1st? Even if it was December 1st it'd still be too early. Also makes me wonder why we aren't seeing the other sets pop up; in image form or otherwise.
  4. I'm sure we'll see them again, especially if there's an Ahch-To set. Also, I'm guessing that Old Luke and Rey in her new outfit weren't included in the Falcon because they'll be in an Ahch-To set soon enough.

    Updating Your Minifigs

    Since I finally got around to rebuilding 10123 Cloud City, I thought it'd be a good idea to update the figs: I think they turned out pretty darn good. I couldn't find a better torso for Leia, short of using the original, but I wanted to keep the dark red. I don't currently have the funds to acquire the most recent versions of Boba Fett or Vader, but I'll get around to them eventually.

    I think we can all agree that this wave is pretty lackluster, especially when compared to TFA or RO's Force Friday waves. There are a few standouts of course, like Kylo's TIE and the Resistance Bomber, but even those have their own problems. The entire wave seems rushed & overpriced; like they weren't given enough time to work on the sets. I'm really hoping that the Winter Wave will make up for this; I want some truly spectacular sets for TLJ.

    LEGO Star Wars Pricing Discussion Thread

    My counterargument is that the Rogue One wave was FAR less expensive. I honestly believed that it was an indication of an attempt to lower prices overall. There may have been less sets, but they were priced much more reasonably. The most expensive set was $90 USD! That was such a nice reprieve from the ridiculousness of having three sets that cost more than $100 USD each. If TLG doesn't stop this trend, it could lead to decreased sales for them overall. I believe that they're overestimating their market. How is anyone expected to be able to afford a wave that costs $680 USD plus an $800 UCS Falcon? They really should start targeting lower price points. I very much miss when waves had a reasonable selection of sets starting at $5 USD.

    [MOC] Resistance Ski Speeder

    This looks absolutely fantastic. I'd need some more pictures to tell you if it could be structurally improved any, but the very nature of the ship leads me to believe that it's not going to be able to be very sturdy in the first place.

    For someone who claims to only deal with facts and not emotion, you seem rather upset. I must've struck a nerve. It doesn't matter whether or not you care about my opinion; this is a public forum and I have every right to post here and express my thoughts. I have the right to be critical of TLG even if you don't think I have a reason to. We're done here.

    You're completely ignoring the data that doesn't serve your argument. The Resistance Bomber, Heavy Assault Walker, and Star Destroyer are all overpriced. This entire wave costs $680 USD, which is a $110 increase over the Force Awakens wave. Is that not ridiculous to you? Also, this is not just a US-based problem. Prices are increasing everywhere, and have been for quite some time. I'm extremely worried that the prices will not stop increasing.

    As far as I'm concerned, Kylo's TIE is $20 too much, the Resistance Bomber is $40 too much, and the FO Walker & Star Destroyer are both at least $10 too much. This is a significant increase over the cost of the TFA and the RO Force Friday waves. I feel like we're being priced out of this hobby. I won't be able to afford most of this wave unless there are significant price drops.

    ...Source? Most of those seem ridiculously overpriced. It would only make sense if those prices came from TRU as they tend to gouge quite heavily.

    This is a very important point. The Falcon will be closer to $900 USD including tax, at least where I live. Sales tax can really increase the price when you're talking about high-dollar items.

    Yes. It was leaked a month ago.
  15. ...Where did you hear that? They've made plenty of partially transparent figures in the past, such as in Ninjago or Chima. They've even done one within the SW theme! I see absolutely no reason why they couldn't just go all the way with it. Force ghost minifigs have been asked for for a long time.
