  1. The falcon exclusive black VIP card will grant ''special offers'' through 2018 on star wars stuff. You'll be able to get one only in 2017. What exactly? No idea, and it's kind of weird to offer an unknown timed promo at such an outragous pay wall.
  2. Talk about a release debacle; the official reveal leaked before the hyped announcement, weeks of teasing on social media and marketing = not even an handfull of sets delivered per store and the official release date of october first won't even matter as they won't be back in stock. High five to marketing and the production teams, you guys shot yourself in the foot real good.
  3. Next UCS Set

    Wow Cloud City hasn't been mentionned on this page yet? Let me fix that right now for you guys
  4. Star Wars

    At the rate they are going Disney may noy even be able to shoot the things, the Director for episode IX has been cast aside because his vision clashed with Kennedy's, same thing for the Han Solo flick, Rogue One went through some major reshoots. This is painfull to watch...
  5. TLG to Axe 1400 Jobs

    What caused this 5% diminution aside, they were booming by the double digits year after year. The executives made a motherlode of cash these last few years, and now the people at the bottom of the chainfood is paying for it. Maybe there's other stuff behind the scenes that would help explainning this better, but firing 8% of your total staff for a 5% diminution in profits seems petty. They could also give a call to Disney and tell them to price down their boring new trilogy Star Wars sets, that would help.
  6. What would you like for the next Castle line?

    Castle quality varied wildly, the 2013 line was crap by most accounts; extremly generic and dare I say boring color palette? (Red and Blue is a bore). Kingdoms however may not have featured an elaborate ''castle'', in fact I think that 7946 is too generic, but sets like Mill Village Raid, Kingdom Joust and I'm going to shove Medieval Market Village in this is what I personally want to see Lego get back to; scenery adds a lot to a theme's personality. A gothic medieval town theme would be great to that effect. Lego never dabbled much in that building style and knights with Teutonic gear cutting down the remnants of the Wolfpack would please a lot of people
  7. Post your general LEGO Star Wars questions here

    If they are giving out Yularen now it's because they are out of stock in your region.

    Interior for 75190 is leagues better, I prefer the exterior of 75055 though. 75055 also has a better source material IMO. Mini-figs wise both are on the same level, although 75190 has Snoke in it so I give it an edge. I'd go for 75055, since $$ isn't an issue.
  9. Star Wars Rebels

    Killing Thrawn in Rebels would be an abbysmal decision, especially financially. Disney knows how much that character draws attention, and killing him in Rebels, a series that had a very limited success, that would be idiotic. Who knows what Thrawn was doing else during the galactic civil war now that the old EU is dead, both the galaxy and the Empire were very vast.
  10. Emoji Movie

    What was Patrick Stewart thinking into accepting to voice a literal animated piece of shit is the only impression I got from this thing.
  11. Star Wars

    I hate to say it but it's an under budgeted kids show. The thing with Star Wars is that it's supposed to please adults as much as kids; they tried pleasing the adults with references such as Thrawn and the likes but it's written for kids ; protagonists are never in danger, antagonists are incompetent idiots, most of the main cast are unlikable ( Ezra could die in a corner for all I care, Zeb is an idiot, Sabine is too good at anything and Chopper is an megablocks ). The only 3 characters that feel human are Kallus, Hera and Kanan. They even managed to screw up Grand Admiral ''Let them Escape'' Thrawn for the entirerity of season 3; I kept waiting all season long for them to use him properly, only to end the finale having the cast saved by an angry space magic creature, Thrawn giving command of vital assets to incompetent fools and the main cast destroying a freacking interdictor class cruiser with thermal grenades FROM THE EXTERIOR HULL. That's coming from someone that loves Clone Wars, that show was brilliant although rougher in some early season parts. I'll watch season 4 to hopefully witness Ezra's agonising demise.
  12. What's your recent LEGO Star Wars Purchase?

    I grabbed the scarif stormie and regular stormie constraction figure to be elligible for force friday promo.
  13. That's a rad looking VIP card right there, I doubt it has additionnal perks though. ( Insane after market value aside ) Uh, intriguing.
  14. Post your general LEGO Star Wars questions here

    I didn't wanted to start a topic on the subject so I'm going to throw this here, What are you guys buying for Force Friday II? Is it gonna depend on what's on sale? I really want to grab the Stormtrooper commander or Scout trooper constraction figures if they are on sale, The Last Jedi sets leave me cold other wise, plus I really want the Scarif Stormtrooper promo, I'm not paying 10$ for it on bricklink for it
  15. LEGO Star Wars 2017 Pictures and Rumors

    I can already hear the pissed off wives when AFOLS with giants grins on their faces come home with this beast. But Jesus that set looks awesome,
