  1. It's in the email they sent about the VIP launch. As for cashing in points, I would do it on my phone in-store while queuing.
  2. I have no idea what you're on about. Stark only caused the creation of: War Monger Whiplash Killan Ultron Vulture Tinkerer Shocker Mysterio Klaue (to a certain extent) provided some of the resources Loki required to bring the Chitauri to Earth and had a hand in the disbanding of the Avengers after he tried to kill Bucky. There's plenty of life left in that trope.
  3. From what I understand, he's going to be a Judge Dredd style character who is never seen without his helmet. It makes sense that we wouldn't have a printed head for him. Tbh I prefer it when the head allows the minifig to look better with the helmet on. For example, the old Stormtroopers that had a black head which completed the look from the back.
  4. The wheels were only for a limited number of the set. I can't remember how many were produced, but it was only a small number per store as a novelty for the launch.
  5. They more likely just looked up the rank insignia on Wookiepedia and chose one they hadn't used before. Like you said, they don't care too much if it's been seen on screen, but they do tend to try and be accurate at least.
  6. The Falcon certainly had more appeal in terms of it being "the ship" from Star Wars and not just being a big grey triangle, but the Star Destroyer is iconic. It set the scene for the whole trilogy in the opening of A New Hope. Personally, I would go for a Star Destroyer over the Falcon for my own preference of ship (if I had anywhere to put either of them). However, as a display piece for guests to look at I think the Falcon would draw more interest. I don't think it will sell the same numbers as the Falcon, partially due to it not being quite as popular and partially due to people who have already got the Falcon not having space for the ISD as well, but it will still be a big seller.

    DC Superheroes 2019 - Rumours, Speculation & Discussion

    I'm confused. What does 76118 have to do with this?

    DC Superheroes 2019 - Rumours, Speculation & Discussion

    It's more a blend of several Batmobiles than a purely original design. The Tumbler was the second UCS Batmobile
  9. Pretty much. I was hoping for the same size, but updated to get more accurate shaping and new greebling. It would sit nicely on top of a Kallax, with just a bit of overhang.
  10. I have to disagree. Sure, bigger produces a better spectacle, but the average consumer has limits to the space they can use to display something like this. I understand that nobody wants a UCS Star Destroyer to be the size of the UCS Snowspeeder or Y-Wing. That wouldn't be big enough to convey it. But being over a metre long makes it impractical for most people. The length of the Saturn V rocket is the perfect length for something like this, I think. It's long enough to be impressive, but still small enough to display using IKEA furniture which it seems most people use for their collections.
  11. Apparently "Bosco" was a very early working title for Far From Home, so people referred to the suit as such. I only found out recently and spent a long time completely baffled by people calling it that. I figured "Red and Black Suit" was good enough as a name.
  12. I guess that's what I get for not bothering to read the email. Definitely a surprise, but likely because they know they've overstretched on the price and want to have good day 1 sales. I hadn't thought about using cashback systems. I typically buy in person from the Lego store. Thanks for the tip.

    DC Superheroes 2019 - Rumours, Speculation & Discussion

    I've been out of the loop on DC for a little while. Do we have any more news on what the D2C is?
  14. It also has a lot of large pieces. Size in Lego isn't just about piece count, either.
  15. Where did you say that? You're only getting an additional £32.50 as a result of double points. The other £32.50 you'd get whenever you buy it.
  16. Internally it'll be totally different. The old one was largely held together using magnets, which are no longer in production. Externally, much of it is a smooth surface, but it looks like the detailing on the neck has been updated.
  17. It looks amazing, but I feel like we're getting shafted in the UK by the price being the same as the Falcon. I assume it's Lego adjusting for the assumed plummet in the value of the pound, which sucks. I really want this set but don't think I can justify £650 for it.
  18. That's clearly visible in the image. I was referring to hidden features.
  19. From what's been mentioned over on Facebook, the hanger is the only interior feature. Apparently there is something in there, the vague clues given suggest a TIE fighter (or squadron of tiny TIE fighters). There could be more, but they've been frustratingly limited with the information they're willing to give out.
  20. Sounds about right. There's not much else they can do to add variety unless they add leg printing for the boots.
  21. According to people who claim to know over on Facebook, the Imperial Crew and Imperial Officer are both exclusive variants. They also say there are HD pics already leaked, but I haven't been able to find them anywhere.
  22. It's the Devastator, which was commanded by Vader himself.
  23. Using some terrible cut and paste work in Paint (and being terribly inaccurate because the image is at an angle) it looks like the ISD is around 110 studs in length, which would make it about 90cm in length. It was reported as 110cm by someone before, which sounds about right when you account for my inaccurate measurement. Edit: A more accurate attempt came out at 130 studs. That's 105cm so the 110cm report sounds right.
  24. The Star Destroyer looks awesome. Can anyone make out what the minifigs are? Is it just a generic Stormtrooper and generic officer?

    Harry Potter 2019 - Rumors & discussion

    I wouldn't be surprised if a lot of shops bought in a lot of stock, since Avengers is such a big seller. The result of that will be that the shelves remain stocked constantly.
