    Not always, they can jump about a bit, often sets can be delayed or take longer to be released (Betrayal on Cloud city is a good example of this, it was several numbers behind many previously released sets).

    I'm in the UK also... I made the decision a month or two ago to bite the bullet and buy a few packs on Bricklink for Europe (cost me about 50 euro each including postage. Was able to keep one and sell the others to allow a few others to get them at a cheaper price than the scalpers on eBay. I would do it again as I do not believe that they will ever become available in the UK.

    Good call, called my local WH Smith and they've put aside a box for me! Apparently another retailer broke the embargo so they did too, not sure who it was though.
  6. Would be good to see Jabba though right? It would be nice to get a new version of the fantastic bigfig from Jabbas palace.
  7. If the main droid in the trailer is DD-BD then lego’s version in the KRMF is VERY different, unless it has the ability to retract its head and limbs into its body! Also, if the lead antagonist is Moloch then there’s been some significant changes there as well. Poor lego, they’ve made some very cool molds and prints based off - what appear to be - outdated characters... I hope I’m wrong.
  8. Solo teaser trailer just dropped, it’s over on the brickfan’s site
  9. Just watched the video... not sure about the second bleep, but the first bleep definitely looks like he's saying "Bespin set". I - 2 years though? (hopefully sooner!
  10. Guavian soldier ice skating on the frozen river? (wearing skates?)
  11. Any more info on the creature? Brickbuilt or molded? Colour, terrain etc? Exciting!, love the new clone!!! More info on the creature please! Brick-built or moulded, colour, terrain etc!
  12. Picked up all of the sets including half an AT-ST :( from my local TRU yesterday, now just need some time...
  13. Picked up Ahch-To set in Smyths toys today, it was the only new set they had.

    Has anyone seen the notice on LEGO Shop? "Early Access for VIPs starts from 7:30 am on 14th September" so it seems there's no need to wait up until midnight tonight, Happy Days! Good luck to our fearless brothers and sisters queuing up out in the cold around the world tonight ;)

    So, has anyone translated the Promobricks article regarding the Berlin flagship store accepting reservations for 30% of their 100 MF sets? Is this a thing elsewhere? If so I'm gonna be pretty cheesed off as I contacted LEGO UK at head office to check on the details of release here in the UK and nothing was said about a percentage being available for reservation! I'm hoping my local (80 miles away) store has not done this as it appears they will only have 16 in stock on the 14th, which may now be down to only 11 or so... anyone out there know anything about this?

    I was initially disappointed with the missed opportunities with these minifigures (i.e. dual moulded single silver leg for Threepio), and the lack of effort with the TFA line up, but the exclusive Han and Leia, Porgs and Mynock are awesome, looking forward to getting my hands on these!

    Forgot to mention, I walked passed an indy toy shop on the Monmouth high street yesterday, they were already selling the SW advent calendar £24.99, Escape Pod £39.99, FO Walker £49.99 (eek!), and the Pretorian, Rey and Chewy construction figures.

It's big! week 2: guess what? ...it's big! week 3: you'll never guess... it's big! week 4: just in case you hadn't got the memo... it's gonna be big! it is possible to tease something other than it's size you know, sheesh!

    Spoke to local Lego store this morning, all they could confirm is that there will be 3x VIP points on all SW sets, with the new wave looking in the region of £600 (minus BB-8 for me) then a vIP haul of £90 will do nicely!
  21. I wonder if we might get a shorter version (using a similar body to Maggie Simpson, or even a micro new baby body so that Yoda could fit into Luke's Dagobah training backpack! Also wondering if a brick-built swamp dragonsnake creature could feature? Would love a dirty Dagobah R2! or something at least that will make him different from the hundreds of the standard one we seem to get in dozens of sets, the last variant was to change the colour of his eye to lilac in 2016, c,mon give us collectors something to get excited about.

    Okay, so some sites are reporting on the 2017 SW Calendar (75184) being available from Aros in the UK... turns out that Argos have it listed, but as 'coming soon'. I spoke to an employee this morning who confirmed that no stores would have it in stock before August 28th! meaning that it will be 'coming soon' for over a month. What really gets me is that this item is currently part of their 3 for 2 offer, which the employee also confirmed would be long gone by the time they are actually available. Is it just me, or does anyone else think practices such as this are ridiculous?
