    Army building issue?

    I started my collection seriously back in 2014; the gap from there to today is not noticable to say, swap the 2014 stormtrooper variant to the 2019 one. Both versions blend somewhat well. It's only prior to 2011 that printing style really stands out, Clone wars especially.
  2. I don't think the mini-figs are lacking, my problem is that the sets are almost 1/1 the wave we got in 2015. Kylo Ren's shuttle, poe's x-wing, speeder set with rey and bb-8 set on a sandy planet, a-wing, y-wing. It's boring.

    [SPOILER] The Mandalorian Discussion

    I think the child + faceless hero combo works well. Some of the action and dialogue is a bit corny but overall it's endearing. There a nice contrast with the main character that had a very crappy childhood that has a chance to protect the child and keep him happy. The show offers us to see character progression too; The mandalorian is not an ultimate badass with no chance to grow; he gets his megablocks kicked and he takes more than he can bite. This is unlike the vast majority of star wars stories where the heroes simply fight their way in and the stakes are very low (Rebels and Resistance, a big chunk of clone wars too ) Cara Dune is show regular so we are going to see more of her, hopefully they team up I enjoyed her character a lot. Overall it's a 8/10 for me so far with the promise of getting better, and it's IMO a lot better than the rehashed ideas with misused ( or plain boring ) characters we got to see from Disney until they aquired the license.
  4. Really interested seeing the mandalorian battle pack, the rest of the sets are a hard pass; except maybe Ben's hut at a discount. Nice wave for newcomers who like tatooine too. I'm hyped for the end of the sequel trilogy so that we may get mandalorian and fallen order stuff, those are way more appealing imo.
  5. Nice to get the helmet for Wedge in a cheap set; although it pisses me off to no end that NAMED pilots still have that terrible generic pilot face. Sassy smile and goofy terror expression. Even with UCS sets Lego doesn't bother with their face printing, like gold leader for the Y-Wing. Hell the TIE UCS pilot has ''rare'' variant of angry clone face that's more interesting. Wedge is featured in all 3 movies, only guy to survive both death star battles and wasn't blown to pieces on hoth and still gets generic goofy Mcdude printing. The least they could do is re-use the much better facial print used for the first x-wing microfighter ( Theron Nett )

    Should LEGO Star Wars take a break?

    There's plenty of rooms for interesting sets or due remakes, the problem is new content banking on the old designs or Lego being lazy. My last purchases were two of smaller 20th anniversary sets, I don't own a modern version of the snowspeeder believe it or not hahaha, and the battlepack. The new trilogy does not have me hooked enough to justify spending money on it and I feel that's a big issue for a lot of us.

    It's an incredible looking ship and I want it bad, but I'm not willing to bend over 975$ CAN for it. Also daily reminder that the Saturn 5 costs 120$ USD and is also a massive set. I can't justify the purchase for what they are asking. 600$ Yeah sure, but that's not possible for me.

    Holy crap that's a big boy. The shape from the top is pretty much perfect. Definitly hyped for the HD pics. The two mini figs seems to be a storm trooper and a storm trooper officer maybe? He's definitly wearing black. It would make sense as it's the only time we see them and the tantive IV being included means early sequence of a new hope.

    As far as a UCS set goes there's few as enticing as the idea of owning a Star Destroyer. I'm actually pretty excited to see how they are going to tackle this one.

    The viewership for the show dropped dramatically after season 1, retailers wanted nothing to do with Rebels. The associated products sold quite badly. Sure it had cool designs but it's understandable why they didn't produce that many sets. Hey at least we have lego Thrawn.

    I'm no fan of the new trilogy but the sets look near for what they are. A bit disapointed they they keep reusing the same designs but oh well. Depending on how the mandalorian show holds on I might very well get the AT-ST, I'm a damn sucker for anything underworld related and that vehicle looks like something a warlord might be using during and post empire era.

    When I first opened the article I thought both the landspeeder and hut came together for 30$.
