  1. Actually, the next magazine is no. 80, which will be published in Germany on Januar 29. I'm not too excited for no. 81, though. because the price of the magazine is higher than the current price of the trooper on Bricklink.

    Star Wars

    I agree. For me, episode 3 was the worst so far. On scale from 1 to 10, I'd rate it between 3.5 and 4.5. What bothers me is that at least since "Winter Soldier", Disney's stance on the display of violence seems to be that if the result of an action doesn't show effects of violence, the action cannot be considered harmful and violent. I first realized that when Joaquin Torres was kicked in the head by a super soldier while lying on the ground, an attack that, in the real world had a good chance of being deadly or resulting in serious brain trauma. The "slap" of the wookie that made Boba and others fly several meters through the air, again, in the real world, would have crushed bones and smashed internal organs. This development makes me feel uneasy because this way, children, teenagers and even adults are given false impressions on the effects of certain actions.

    Star Wars

    I found the first episode, well, not good. Sarlacc and Boba's escape reminded me of a trash-movie from the early 80s. If this was intended, well, then it was executed very well. Boba wants to rule by respect. Like he earned the respect of the sandpeople back then. Yeah. I got it. They were supposed to be evil, but you can earn their respect. Great idea, I am so thankful for that [/sarcasm]. And the idea that Fett can become the local crime boss without having any base of power is stupid, even for Star Wars standards. Not to mention some glitches, e. g. the fight Boba observed in the desert with the Tusken-guy. If I had to rate on a scale from 1 to 10, it'd be 6.5 or 7.0. Favourite character so far: Mok Shaiz's Majordomo
  4. ..and the Cloud City price. Cloud City was released in 2018, the Cantina in 2020, so an Endor MSB set in 2022 would so to say complete the OT and be consistent with this line of reasoning. A "Geonosis" playset covering different locations from AotC and/or TCW series seems less appealing to the demand-side of the market to me. Thus, I wouldn't bet on it.
  5. I'm fine with one design for characters from different sources. As I wrote nearly 10 years ago: Personally, I'm not quite happy that Lego makes such a distinction at all. I think that Lego is the perfect platform to melt the different universes (TCW, PT, OT) into one, but apparently, that's not gonna happen. I couldn't imagine it back then, but it happened. So my point is not about accuracy. It's more about whether I think that the new design is an improvement of the last design, and I don't think so.
  6. I like the Hoth rebels set. I do not like the Clone Commander, I prefer the 2013 design (yellow, silver visor, torso print).
  7. I'm fine with the three helmets. They may not be accurate, but I don't believe that helmets on Lego minifigures will ever be "accurate", and to me, the helmets look pretty good in their own right.
  8. The stromtrooper still has that oversized dual-molded helmet, So just like 75262 etc., this set is a clear pass for me.
  9. I'm fine with printed karmas, though I'd prefer if the sides of the legs were printed as well. I'm under the impression that Lego's current rationale is whether or not a minifig is meant to be placed in or on a vehicle. That would exlain why Echo and the snowtroopers in the recent AT-AT have printed karmas and Airborne Trooper in Grievous' Starfighter doesn't. I'd prefer a consistent solution, though.
  10. avengers777 spoke of 12 am pt, which is in ~10 hours.
  11. I do not really see the point in commenting this rumor. Either he is right, and the Bad Batch doesn't come with helmets. If this is true, a number of people won't buy this set, and there will be a low demand for the minifigs on the 2nd market. Or he isn't right, and the whole issue is just, well, a kind of a phantom menace. But I'm confident that in either case, we will learn soon enough.
  12. I think that because of Disney+, the destinction "current" and "not current" can no longer be made. It's all available and current. And to some extend, even older stuff like TCW is new: As Dave Filoni pointed out in an interview, there are Star Wars fans who learn about Ahsoka the first time in The Mandalorian, and if they become curious, they can move on to TCW to learn more about her story. For children, the animated series will most likely the first things they will see of Star Wars. With Disney+, all stories playing in the SW universe are available at the same time, in the present. New series and films are enhancing or expanding this universe. In the past, it made sense to focus on what you call "the current stuff". In times of Disney+, that may have changed. But that's an empirical question.
  13. Due to promobricks, the UCS Gunship will come with Mace Windu and a clone captain (red markings).
