  1. Hey everyone, I know we have a running thread of various users modifications to the UCS Millennium Falcon from 2017, so I thought it would be a good idea to get something going for the newest system version of the set from The Rise of Skywalker. I think it definitely is the best model of the ship you can get besides the UCS model, but it definitely is a blank slate for modifications, fixes, etc. to make it a better model and more film accurate. So let this be a thread for discussion and a showcase for the changes the community is making to their small-scale falcons. If anyone has done anything interesting with the 2011, 2015, or 2018 models, this could be a good place to share those as well, especially with interior modifications as they could be applied and adapted to the newer set. Looking forward to seeing everyone's unique changes!
  2. Pretty sure all of Kylo's prints are new. The torso and legs both feature tears and scrapes from battle damage. I agree though, it's a nice little vignette and I hope they do more of these. It's a cheap way to get important characters and it works really well as a display, similar to 75229.
  3. Generally the more expensive/larger sets (other than UCS) are released in the summer wave. Winter wave is pretty much always cheaper sets or less than $100. Then the fall wave for Episode IX will be more of a full wave with a wider range of prices.
  4. Yeah, probably around January or February, although we could see a release as earlier as December.

    Harry Potter 2018 - Rumors & Discussion

    I tried to measure the model. My guess is that it's close to 64 studs wide, the same width as two modulars next to one another. The only difference is that we are seeing 5 buildings shoved into that space making the buildings look smaller, but I'm fairly certain this model (preliminary or not) is NOT meant to be mini-scale at all. This model just features smaller buildings (similar to how 76108 features a very undersized Sactum Sanctorum in height and width, they most likely have normal minifig sized doors and whatnot, just some of the exterior detail is downsized in order to maximize the pieces of the potential set and make the build have that cramped feeling that the movie setting has.
  6. Of course it’s just assumptions for now but there’s no reason to believe it will differ from previous years. Most likely there will be a Winter wave in either December 2018 or next January, a Summer wave in June, and Force Friday III in September.

    Harry Potter 2018 - Rumors & Discussion

    Exactly this. D2C sets are and have always been beasts of their own. A D2C Hogwarts has to stand on its own, not connect to other sets, and the fact the we are already getting a Great Hall was enough to tell us this D2C is going to be something different than what we’ve gotten before, and that’s a good thing. D2C’s are, at the end of the day, giant display pieces, so it just makes so much sense to have a full model of Hogwarts to put on a coffee table or in a display case. To those that are upset at Lego for not listening to fans, you’re getting your Hogwarts too. Buy the minifig scale sets and show them you want more. I think it’s a great idea though and I can’t wait to see the final product.

    It looks to be boggart Snape dressed like Neville's grandmother.

    Harry Potter 2018 - Rumors & Discussion

    So I've been thinking more about the D2C. What if it isn't a system scale set, but instead a miniature, architecture line styled set of the entire castle? Similar to this Ideas project or this model from the Nobel Collection. Lego has made sets based of off non chosen Ideas sets before (Ghostbusters HQ, Hulkbuster) so it could be possible.

    This has me thinking that the D2C could be Diagon Alley instead. Combined with the fact that many others have brought up which is why would they release a set without the most iconic parts of the castle (Staircase Tower and Great Hall)? I get that they have done it before, but there are already two sets with parts of the castle and it just makes more since to me to have Hogwarts split between smaller sets, it makes it much more accessible to people. Diagon Alley doesn't have to be that. It isn't the most iconic setting, or the most memorable, but has a lot of potential and the original is a really fun set. I agree with people that an updated Diagon Alley NEEDS the Weasley shop, so maybe they'll break the rule of years 1-3 for the D2C or it'll be it's own set at some point. Ultimately, I don't believe that Ollivander is a CMF, and unless there is some unknown wand shop set, I can't think of anything else related to the first few films that he would be included in besides Diagon Alley.

    Marvel Superheroes 2018 - Set Discussion

    They could've just reused the Antman helmet mold with trans yellow replacing the trans red. Would still be inaccurate but much better than the Iron Man helmet.
  12. Most sets, including UCS, usually have a lifespan of around 2 years. With how special this set is I would think it would be around a little longer, but two years from release at least. You have plenty of time.

    LEGO Star Wars 2017 Pictures and Rumors

    You mean the weekly hints? They've done it with both 21137 The Mountain Cave and 21309 NASA Apollo Saturn V leading up to their announcements, I can't say if they've done this before with many other sets though. Someone else would know more than me. Usually we just get a press release and a designer video with sets like these.

    Disney's Future with Lego

    I would hope that the continued partnership between Lego and Star Wars would keep Disney in the game as a whole for the foreseeable future. For the future, I would obviously like to see the continuation of Star Wars, Marvel, and the Disney Princess/fairy tale lines. Incredibles 2 seems like a bit of a stretch honestly, but I think it might work well as a mini juniors wave as some have mentioned. I think that Toy Story 4 is highly likely to get something (but molded heads or regular minifigs this time around?) I'd like to see them branch out to the other live action movies Disney has made, such as Tomorrowland and the upcoming Jungle Cruise movie, although I can understand why they haven't yet. These movies don't do as well or receive as much attention as the Princess movies do. I'd also like to see Disney return in a second wave of CMFs as well as a second D2C (I'm thinking the Disneyland Train Station and train). All together I see Disney's future in the Juniors and Minidoll lines for most themes going forward, with the more adult oriented properties getting system sets or D2C's like Pirates did this year. But Lego, please, give us at least one National Treasure set.
  15. I think the idea of a one off, D2C Hogwarts sounds like a decent idea. Like the Silent Mary set, just for Harry Potter instead. We aren't getting more HP movies, so I don't think a whole wave is necessary, but one large $300-$400 castle could be a really neat model.
