  1. LEGO Star Wars 2017 Pictures and Rumors

    Right at the beginning
  2. He was talking about the retro-engineered one.
  3. From the interview that came with the press release:
  4. FYI it's also 329 in Belgium.
  5. It looks very much like a sticker, it has some thickness to it:
  6. He's talking bout the sticker with the key figures: This is different from a UCS set, where the sticker is applied to a separate support.
  7. It's listed as cancelled or postponed to 2017 on Brickset.
  8. Very nice replica of the set. Regarding this set being cancelled, it did actually show up in Nuremberg in late January! In this , if you watch carefully, you'll see it on the screen behind the Lego employee: It might eventually show up later than expected.
  9. No way there are two color schemes in the box, changing only the panels would leave you with lots of beams and lift arms in a different color. Including two sets of all the pieces required to change the livery would increase the the part count by at the very least 25%. The only color-related speculation I might buy into is a limited edition in prototype livery and a standard color for a standard set (and although I hope it turns out to be true, I'm not holding my breath on that).
  10. 75098 Assault on Hoth

    Not even close, 10188 stuck around for more than 7 years.
  11. 75098 Assault on Hoth

    Well, I feel like Lego hates France, hiking up the price of Slave 1 and trying to offload that abomination of Assault on Hoth at a "discount"...
  12. 75098 Assault on Hoth

    I don't know where you got those numbers from, but Slave 1 is 219,99 and Assault on Hoth 249.99 in France.
  13. Lava Orange is the showcased color : http://www.porsche.c...s/uk.aspx#intro 8110 and 42030 are not products that anyone can recognize at first sight. They are well known among enthusiasts, but they have nowhere near the fame of a 911. Also, the colors on 8110 and 42030 are almost exactly the same as the real models. That's not the case for Lava Orange, Lego's Bright Orange (id-106) is not red enough IMO. Finally, this set seems to be given some sort of exclusive treatment so far, I don't see why TLG would not issue a new color for it, never to be seen again.
  14. If it's Lava Orange (I think it will be), it definitely won't be the standard Lego Orange. Manufacturers have patents on their colors. Porsche will not allow TLG to release a product that does not comply with all their graphic design guidelines. That would weaken the brand in their eyes. You have to remember that this is a Lego product as much as it is a Porsche product.
