    As someone else suggested, this Sandspeeder variant of the T-47 could be something from Battlefront II. It wouldn't surprise me if there was some sort of repainted variant for the Jakku maps they introduced. Could also be from the campaign. It doesn't seem like LEGO have any sets we know yet lined up for the release of BFII like they had for the last game (Battle Packs), so releasing a vehicle that's making its first appearance in that game would be a somewhat logical move to put something new out but also promote the game.

    I actually really quite like that Sandspeeder set. It's a pretty good T-47 model, and it's refreshing to see it in a different colour than the usual white/grey we usually see in Airspeeders. The figures are nothing to shout about though, it would've been cool to have some named figures in there rather than some generic pilots, but since it's presumably an EU set and nothing out of the movies I imagine LEGO weren't able to put anyone named in that line-up.

    Interesting. Is there a source to this? Hopefully we aren't get an ISD, we need another Cloud City. There are plenty of Star Destroyers, both Imperial and First Order ones, that have been released.

    Really dislike the new Phasma, the helmet just looks so stupid and doesn't look right at all.

    Meh. I guess if there's one thing, it might finally give us a Zuckuss minifig that we've been drawing ever closer to.

    Oooooh, a new Cloud City rumor. Hopefully it'll deliver, if y'all have seen me post on these boards before, you'll know the one set I want most is a new Cloud City set. The Supremacy Battle set sounds intriguing, but one would hope it'd have Snoke or some Praetorian Guards at least. The set having Rose, Finn and some executioner stormtroopers would be pretty disappointing, in my opinion.

    Hmmm, that sucks I guess, but the fact it's a playset somewhat makes up for it. Do we know what the set will consist of in terms of the build? In my head I'm picturing a temple structure/part of a temple structure, but I'm probably wrong.

    Hmmm, I need to start checking back here more often :p So, the Luke minifig is... ok. I actually really like the torso print and face print, but my big gripe is the hair. It doesn't fit the figure at all. It's really just the front of the hairpiece really, it's way too tall - while Luke's hair does take that kind of shape, it's nowhere near as towering as that. It just makes the figure look strange. However, I'm sure there'll be a hairpiece out there that can rectify that. The new Mace is really everything I could've hoped for, it's fantastic. The prospect of a cheap Ahch-To set really excites me, since I kind of would've expected LEGO to slap a high price tag on a set that'd undoubtedly contain Jedi Training Rey and probably the most sought after figure of the TLJ line, Luke. Honestly I wouldn't be too disappointed if we didn't get Porgs in that set, but it would be nice to have 3 minifigs in that set, or something like some Porgs that'd equate to the standard 3 minifigs. Perhaps one of the Caretakers could make for an interesting figure. I feel like I've talked about another Mos Eisley recently here before, but this also excites me as someone who stupidly didn't buy the 2014 version. I'd love to see another version brought out.

    Wow, haven't checked this boards in a few weeks now and come back to see talk and images of a possible new Cantina set... interesting. It could be from Solo, but I'd guess it's just a normal set from the Winter Wave. It would make sense though, we don't exactly know where the movie will finish up, we could have the movie finishing by Han and Chewie coming into the Cantina or something to tie up the movies, like Rogue One did to tie in with ANH. It's possible the set could be from Solo, but yeah, I think the more likely possibility here is of a regular Episode IV set. Seems strange they'd do another one though after only discontinuing the last one less than 2 years ago now.

    Some sets aren't, but I'd expect this one to definitely pass 5 years on the shelves before it gets retired.

    Not too different, but I think people have said the torso print and possibly the leg print are different, so it's not just some polybag of an easily accessible figure on a stand, by the looks of it.

    Yeah, the Scarif Stormtrooper is apparently something you get with an in-store purchase, and you get the FO Walker polybag for a qualifying S@H order... That sucks, because that poly really doesn't interest me. Hopefully they'll make the Scarif trooper more widely available in the future, because, well, I don't live anywhere near a LEGO Store, so there's no way I'm getting that.

    There's the problem right there. LEGO can get away with selling Ninjago products cheaper because it's not licensed, whereas all this Star Wars stuff which is licensed and will also likely be sold like hot cakes is going to be a bummer when it comes to money.

    So, the prices for the regular System sets for TLJ in the UK are (prices are in bold, left some of my personal thoughts in regular font): - Resistance Transport Pod (75176): £39.99 ---> This is an absolute joke. These days you can find the Resistance Troop Transport on Amazon discounted for the same price, which has better minifigures and a compressed version of the Pod itself included with it. This is one I doubt will sell like hot cakes here, even with Rose in there. Definitely one I'll pick up on discount, if I find I even want it, it's a pretty bad set anyway. - First Order Heavy Scout Walker (75177): £49.99 ---> Definitely one of the better priced sets of the wave. 554 pieces for £49.99 is pretty good going. Though, not one I'll personally pick-up, too strange for me. - Kylo Ren's TIE FIghter (75179): £74.99 ---> Not the best in terms of price per piece, however I think it's just about acceptable enough, since the build is pretty substantial in itself, and it's a very cool set nevertheless, that'll probably sell pretty well. - BB-8 (75187): £84.99 ---> Really, that's an absolute bargain. £84.99 for 1106 parts is very good going. - Resistance Bomber (75188): £99.99 ---> Not the greatest price, 780 parts for £99.99 isn't great, but it's a pretty hefty build with two great minifigs in the form of Poe and Holdo, so it just clears it, I think. - First Order Heavy Assault Walker: £129.99 ---> The walker is a big, incredible build, and it does well in terms of price per part, just below 10p per piece, and with a great figure selection I think this is pretty fair. - First Order Star Destroyer: £129.99 ---> I could not be happier with this price. I was expecting something in the £140-£150 region, but this exceeds all expectations. Definitely a set I'm going to strongly consider picking up. Also, for those who haven't seen, the Falcon is £650 here in the UK, which, quite frankly, is an absolute bargain.
  15. This is a really quite marvellous model, even if it is out of my price range. The addition of an interior is awesome.
