    Star Wars Anthology: Rogue One

    Is there any way this movie is actually going to have a good plot after that trailer? Obviously it isn't going to reveal much of it, it was just a teaser. But the Force Awakens trailer was simply intriguing. This was painfully, painfully generic. The forced, cheesy line about rebellion needed to be not in the script at all, and the fact that it made it into the trailer is beyond ridiculous. Rey was a strong female character, but this just looks like a duller clone of Katniss. Surely with all the interesting stuff in the Star Wars universe they could have given us a more original protagonist and a better story than this appears to be.

    Disney CMF - Wishlists

    1. Scrooge McDuck, my number 1 priority. 2. Goofy (I think this is a guaranteed) 3. Edna Mode-- another personal love, not likely but still possible since we've seen some Incredibles. 4. Frozone, Elastigirl, or Dash-- really more likely than Edna but I'd rather her 5. Mulan-- my favorite princess and relatively likely 6. Carl Frederickson (I'd also like to see Ellie but I don't think it likely) 7. Russell 8. Winnie the Pooh-- iconic, easy to do, pretty likely 9. Tigger-- they already made the tail piece for the regular minifigure series 10. Hiro 11. Sorceror's Apprentice Mickey, gotta steal that one from your list 12. Mary Poppins-- I don't see this as very likely but more possible than my addendum stuff at the end of this post 13. Cruella De Vil 14. Mad Hatter 15. Any Inside Out emotion. 16. Belle 17. Lilo 18. Oswald (not very likely but possible) Ones I think likely but aren't super high priority for me-- Jack Skellington (they merch him a lot) Moana, for movie tie-in Woody, similar design to the one from a few years back Pinocchio Mowgli, considering there's a remake coming. Probably original cartoon design though Jasmine Snow White or Evil Queen Merida Queen of Hearts Ones I'd love but I don't see happening KUZCO, KRONK, YZMA Ellie Long John Silver from Treasure Planet Chef Skinner Captain Hook with an actually drawn nose, since this one looks really nothing like one of my favorite characters Judge Claude Frollo Gaston Cory Baxter

    Post your general LEGO Star Wars questions here

    I'd really like to add a Venator-class Star Destroyer to my collection, but I'm not a huge fan of the official model and all the MOC versions I've seen have been either midi or huge. Has anyone ever seen or made a version that's closer to the piece count of the actual set? I'd like to bricklink one around that size, and I may just end up designing it myself. Of course, odds are I'll just get the original version if a cheap one pops up on eBay due to the higher cost of bricklinking, but if there was a good design around that size I might have to get the money.

    Hey man, I have an extra I could maybe send you if all you need is the head. PM me if you can't work it out with the seller.
  6. My main disappointment in this set is how much the price is brought up by the lack of design focus, even though it was obviously intentional. I really want a batcave, not a fan of the prior one and not willing to pay the markup for the original, so I was hoping for this one to be a good one for around 100. I would have much preferred them do a 100 dollar 66 Batcave with a more singular design and a say 120 dollar Wayne Manor one that connected together.
  7. I can't tell if these means amazingbricks has info that there will be sets in 2017 (which would make my life) and is telling us to look forward to then, or if he's just looking forward in vague hopes also.

    Least Accurate Sets Based on Movies

    On the topic of chamber of secrets, I like the LEGO basilisk way more than the movie one, honestly. It's much more like I pictured it reading the book, and actually has significant fangs, which is sort of an important thing the movie one was lacking.
  9. I'm not complaining about the most recent Hogwarts, I loved it, and I already acknowledged the hollowness of the original. I currently own them all and they're all set up together, I can compare them quite easily. My point is simply that one thing I think a UCS Hogwarts could do would be to return to a greater height but with a larger level of detail. I know people have different wishes, but I would personally like it so that a UCS one still wouldn't be dwarfed in height by my others.
  10. That's what was originally said and what seems to still be prevailing, but at some point after that they directly contradicted it and said it wouldn't be a trilogy. I think (and hope) it still probably will be, but it's not really confirmed right now.
  11. Piece count wise, I know it is. But even *not* placed on top of other sets, the older castles are still taller. If you are to stack the first, which already stretches the highest, you create an even greater discrepancy, making a display particularly difficult. There is no height comparison on the sets alone. Obviously this is due to piece density and detail in many ways-- the original is quite hollow-- but my initial point that the new one is the shortest can't really be contested.
  12. When displayed with any of the older Hogwarts though, the 2010 one feels exceedingly short. I'd like to see a taller one again.
  13. I very much want this. I've been planning on making basic common rooms for the houses in the old sort of modular style of the early theme, so it would be quite nice to actually have the torsos for each house.
  14. I've been clinging on to hope ever since I saw this. http://potter.vanill...-news-thread/p1 (How do you link under names over here? I tried the methods I'm used to but they didn't work.) I want a return of Harry Potter so bad, although I'm afraid it would just be another Hogwarts if they did. I would still certainly buy it, but in all likelihood it would be quite similar to the most recent one.

    I'm honestly of the opinion over here that they'll be regular. Everyone's focusing on height proportion, but let's not forget how absurdly skinny his legs are. I think short legs would be jarringly disproportionate in that regard and regular, although not height-accurate, would create a better overall impression.
