    LEGO Speed Champions 2020 - Rumors, Speculation, and Discussion

    I have been able to stay away from this theme for the most part (I've bought 2) because I could not stand the terrible proportions. This is no longer the case for me. The new 8 stud wide builds look leagues beyond the previous 6 stud wide cars in terms of scale, proportion, and accuracy. I will probably be picking up most if not all of the coming wave and may also get them as gifts in the future. Just thought I would share my thoughts as someone who has always seen potential for the theme but hasn't truly been on board with it until now.

    I am modifying my UCS Slave I but I guess my question really wasn't LEGO related was it, sorry.

    These are what Jango's Slave I used but Boba Fett's Slave I was rebuilt and I can't find any solid information on whether or not it uses these as well. I think Boba Fett's Slave I may have used space mines in the EU but after the Attack of the Clones and Disney buying Lucas Films, the new cannon might suggest it uses the seismic charges but I can't find anything definite. Maybe seismic charges are considered space mines? All I know is that the Slave I has a minelayer and there are no illustrations of it. This image has the mines listed as seismic charges in the information box (it doesn't really say whether it is Boba's Slave I though) http://vignette3.wikia.nocookie.net/starwars/images/0/09/Slave1TechPlate.jpg/revision/latest?cb=20150825223957 This Link says minelayers use space mines http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/Minelayer_(weapon_system)

    Does anyone know what kind of "mines" Boba Fett's Slave I uses? I have looked online and have found sites that say it has seismic charges and ones that say space mines. So is it the latter, former, or are they the same thing? Thanks in advance.

    I found the clip and think your right about it being an air vehicle. To me it looks kind of like a helicopter, but there is no rotor...? The windscreen on the head must be for the squire-bot and/or battle suit combination. Looking at the scene with the vehicle, it looks more bird-like than dragon. Thanks for pointing that out Boogly22238, I appreciate it.

    LEGO Nexo Knights 2017 Discussion

    ToysRUs in the USA, just bought it there the other day. Regarding the silhouettes of the three summer sets in the back of the 2017 sets' instructions: In the top "locked" silhouette, I can just make out Axl protruding from the top. The vehicle also looks like it is based off Axl's crest, using the drill pieces as horns of a bull's head on the front. Lastly from what I can make out, it has linked treads like these supporting the middle and probably wheels in the back. In the middle "locked" silhouette, I can't make out all that much do to it's scale. The vehicle looks like a huge buggy of some sort using these as it's wheels https://www.bricklink.com/PL/2515.jpg?1. Through the process of elimination, I think this vehicle belongs to Aaron as each knight has one vehicle depicted here for the combinations. In the bottom "locked" silhouette, I can make out Macy's helmet at the top/middle under this screen https://www.bricklink.com/PL/6070.gif?0. The vehicle looks defiantly dragon inspired but I cannot tell if it is a ground or air vehicle. It has a mace https://www.bricklink.com/PL/98578.jpg?1 ended tail on the back. The rest of the build I cannot make out. Anyone notice anything else?

    LEGO Star Wars 2017 Pictures and Rumors

    I looked up images for Boba Fett's ROTJ helmet and you are right that it is darker than the ESB version but it doesn't look to be quite as dark as the armor. So with existing colors, olive green would have probably been a better color choice. Sand green looks perfect for the ESB version though, so I am not sure why you say a recolor should have come earlier unless your referring to the previously released skiff. As for the colors of the skiff and Sarlacc, I agree with you. Besides the odd color choices the set does look more accurate, then previous versions, to the movies IMO.

    LEGO Star Wars 2017 Pictures and Rumors

    Boba Fett wears a different suit in The Return of the Jedi. This suit has gray sleeves and pants, a blue jet pack, red gauntlets, and a different cape. The gloves are gray but have tan fabric on the back of them. So I believe this is accurate to the film except for his jet pack not being blue. I am torn whether to get the set or wait until he gets his red gauntlets printed on.

    The LEGO Batman Movie Set/CMF Rumors & Discussion

    Hmm, that's very interesting, thanks for telling me:) I am still waiting for a official LEGO Lotr Sauron minifig so this gives me a little hope we may see one in the future (even if not through this movie).

    I personally like most of these new monsters better than the "lava" ones. I like that they are less organic and more elemental, this is probably why I like Moltor and Flama best from the first year. Just imagine if these would have been the lava monsters though. I may be getting extras to paint. How do I post the images without it showing as a link? I haven't posted a picture since before the update.

Is there a place that has all of the technical names of the sections? I must of mist seeing the updates that had the pieces I mentioned. I was just happy to get these pieces but now I feel stupid knowing they were there this whole time, lol. @Brick_Classics, your welcome. Thank you for being so courteous, it is likewise appreciated.
