  1. LEGO Star Wars 2018 Set Discussion - READ FIRST POST!

    I really can't understand the need to re-buy every rebel pilot helmet in the new design if you have the old one already. I have a real problem collecting rebel pilots and I'm at 25+ but I'm looking forward to a change in design. They are a rag tag group anyway so the mishmash of helmets makes sense to me.

    Once we see helmet pictures from the back or side on we will see how much volume they have. All Rebel helmets look weird from the front on shots and always look better in hand. That visor is a beauty though.
  3. 2018 City Sets - Rumours and Discussion

    The prehistoric animals will make a nice new addition within an enclosure at a Lego Jurassic park.
  4. [MOD] The Twi'lek Bombshell

    A fantastic MOD of the only new ship a like from the latest films. Your version looks a lot more streamlined yet heavy hitting at the same time, especially the great upgrades done to the turrets. I believe the film makers were going for a WW2 vibe with these ships and you've taken it to a new level with the B-17 style artwork which looks great. I was luck enough to receive this set as a gift and like everyone else I feel it would be overpriced if i had to buy it but once built it really is an amazing set with some great figures.

    The new Star Wars train has no track? Lego are really upping their efforts to sell half a set for full price! First an AT-ST with no head and now a train with no tracks?

    Is it me or is the back of the rear nacelle already drooping in the promo shot?
  7. [PRESS RELEASE] 75192 - UCS Millennium Falcon 2017

    At this point that's all the black card is, a nice souvenir to look at. Heading 4 months into the exciting year of perks and all we have to show for it is a double VIP offer we see throughout the year anyway. Don't get me wrong, I didn't buy the falcon for a nice card but Lego needs to start delivering on the black card hype they advertised. Here's hoping they surprise us with something interesting going forward.
  8. Updating Your Minifigs

    Trying to work out the in film cannon of each type of character in a Star Wars flick can be a fruitless endeavour. I can image a bloke from the 70's with a fag hanging out his mouth just handing extras "stuff that looks similar". They had no idea how ranks or job roles worked or cared if they didn't look the same, as long as it worked on screen. A lot of props were also reused for different characters so that just adds to the confusion. 70's Britain was a very different place compared to the super micro managed Disney of today

    Well Lego did pull a lot of his previous reviews of stuff he had bought retail prior to release date and threatened his channel. I think that disclaimer just proves how much they goofed up
  10. Updating Your Minifigs

    Screen Shot 2018-03-27 at 12.51.59 by That Orange Thing, on Flickr The new Stormtroopers in the Tie fighter set look amazing, however, they do have a new helmet mould. It seems Lego has a new standard that could be an interesting for fellow army builders going forward.
  11. What I expect 75222 to be

    The Death Star has the most play value I've ever seen in a Lego set and is not meant to be a representation of perfect looking Death Star as it takes massive cues from the original Kenner lines. I see why a detailed exterior of Cloud city is appealing but be careful what you wish for as you could end up with a big white ball instead of big black ball. For me it's the attention to detail in each room that is the most charming and interesting aspect of DS. In my head, CC would be similar to DS as it has too many interesting scenes that could be built. Obviously they could tidy up the edges a bit and maybe throw in a removable exterior panel or two.
  12. 21314 - LEGO® TRON: Legacy

    Leaked box art has two bikes, two riders and a woman fig holding a sword so the third figure may push up the price a bit.
  13. Whats going on with the 75192 Falcon availability??

    It sounds like a good idea until you have to buy that many parts. The logistics and time involved is just immense, not forgetting that there are some rare parts in the new falcon that cost an arm and a leg. Gathering that many parts from multiple sources soon becomes just as expensive.
  14. Updating Your Minifigs

    The boots look great. Are they ghostbusters legs or is there a cheaper option to use now? I still have 4 to do for my Empire army

    I believe many take the rumours far too seriously and as such nobody has information that will change the Lego world. We should take the recent cancelled Vader pod as the prime example of rumours getting out of hand. I'm certain that rumour started with someone writing a blog with a theory that it will never see light of day because of contract disputes between Lego and Hasbro. Within days all the usual suspects were shouting from the roof that this was 100% cancelled because they had heard it from a mystery source. Its all a bit too much plumage shaking and strutting around here at times. Just sit back and enjoy the nonsense.
