    What's your recent LEGO Star Wars Purchase?

    They could not have a big hole and handle on the top of it for starters. Obviously I'm being a little facetious as it's a great model but to intergrrate the wing locking mechanism without it being an eyesore is the holly grail of system x-wings. R2 pointing the right direction is a great upgrade though.

    The hairy chinstrap. It's just crazy enough to work. I think you found your new avatar @DrMuttonchops

    What's your recent LEGO Star Wars Purchase?

    I finally caved in and got assault on Hoth after going back and forth since it's release because of price/value. As a minifig army builder I got one off eBay for £144 as it was cheap(ish) and fills in a lot of fig gaps for me . The figures from an old millennium falcon set were also pictured so it will be nice if they show up too but I'm doubtful. I'm still hoping I made the right decision. Jeez,this set has really hurt my head over the past 2 years.

    The Reddit list has to be a fan wishlist because those battle backs are a wet dream. Plus, scout troopers in multiple sets seems odd.

    Glad I didn't procrastinate too long on getting the new helmets before they went out of stock. I also chucked in few cheeky arms whilst I was there. If the response from this forum alone is anything to go by this could be a very lucrative line for Firestar to pursue. Edit: just out of interest how many helmets went up for sale to begin with?

    Someone needs to send Lego a dictionary just so they can double check what exclusive and exciting mean. Even though I'm a black VIP card holder I'm so happy the benifits are so pathetic. A VIP club inside a VIP club is a disgrace in the first place, especially when it has a £600 buy in. Hope Lego learn from this mess. There are far better ways to reward loyal customers.

    Rio Durant has to be pick of the bunch. Goggles on his adorable little head!

    Thanks @Robianco. Just had a quick look at it on youtube and it looks really useful for Rebel pilot fans.

    Just out of interest what is the visual guide everyone keeps referencing?

    They look fantastic Robiano. What is the fit like once you make the switch? Are they tight and move in the same way to the original or are they loose and flop around? I get disappointed when I swap arms with my spare minifigs and the fit is bad but to upgrade to these is a huge financial investment so I'd like it to be worth the upgrade.

    If all the beasts and hut fit inside the case when closed then that would be the cherry on the cake. Well done to the designer of the set as they have elevated something as trivial as a suitcase to the next level.

    [MOC] Assault on Hoth

    Phenomenal recreation of these vehicles at this scale. The AT-AT in particular is outstanding. The onecase spelt in bricks is a nice touch.

    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.

    The prehistoric animals will make a nice new addition within an enclosure at a Lego Jurassic park.
