  1. LEGO Star Wars 2017 Pictures and Rumors

    I was talking about the Geonosis Troopers and Senate Commandos battlepacks, which are technically part of the CW line but do not have cartoon faces.
  2. LEGO Star Wars 2017 Pictures and Rumors

    Yeah, I was just hoping this would be a cheap way to get a CW Yoda since I've recently been buffing up my CW collection and don't have a Yoda yet. ...But I also don't have a prequel Yoda, so it all evens out.
  3. LEGO Star Wars 2017 Pictures and Rumors

    *Sigh* I was worried that would be the case. Don't get me wrong, I love how all the Rebels figures fit in with the film figures, but that was set from the start. Considering that there has only been ONE other CW set released with normal-eyed minifigures, I'd like the cartoon eyes trend to continue or for LEGO to release all the major CW characters with normal eyes... just pick one or the other! Now I have to BL a CW Yoda just so the ship can fit in with all of my other CW sets.

    Since the final CW sets had non-CW faces, does that mean the Yoda Starfighter will have prequel Yoda instead of CW Yoda?
  5. Misleading Lego Play Features

    The 2014 Vulture Droid has a cockpit... which is completely wrong (and makes the model look awkwardly bulky). Vulture Droids pilot themselves in-universe.

  7. MOC AT-TE Midi scale

    This straddles the line between extremely cute and just plain awesome - the use of flick fire missiles as the main cannons is a simple yet inspired solution. Great work!
  8. Star Wars Rebels

    There are a couple small things that bug me about Maul's character design --- his teeth and his legs. His teeth are cleaner and straighter than they were in Episode I! And while it's very possible that he could've had an upgrade to his legs, that just doesn't fit with the way he's portrayed. He's supposed to be a deranged hermit now, right? Shouldn't he be like a grungy old man with rusted, squeaky metallic legs, maybe even with some chipped/broken horns? He looks so clean! I guess there's a spa on Malachor...
  9. LEGO Star Wars 2016 Pictures and Rumors

    Yikes... $80 for Encounter on Jakku? I love the set and the figures, but that price is a little hard to stomach. I was hoping the Episode VII prices would go down in subsequent waves, but it looks as if that's not the case...
  10. LEGO Star Wars 2016 Pictures and Rumors

    Maybe I'm wrong then - I thought filming for Episode VIII hadn't begun (except for a couple plate shots on Skellig Michael).
  11. LEGO Star Wars 2016 Pictures and Rumors

    He shaved after the filming of VII, but is growing it back before filming of VIII begins. The Resistance X-Wing is a little disappointing honestly. I hoped that it would have corrected some of the problems from Poe's X-Wing, but it seems to just be a color swap. I'll get it, but I wish I was more excited about it.
  12. LEGO Star Wars 2016 Pictures and Rumors

    Sure, adults can buy figures off of Bricklink, but shouldn't we think of children WITHOUT that luxury? What about children whose parents don't frequent AFOL sites but still want a BB-8 figure? Not all LEGO fans know about Bricklink - especially young fans. And while I'm okay with spending $80 on a LEGO set, I'd venture to guess that most kids don't have that kind of money. LEGO fans need to think a little more about the product's primary demographic: kids.
  13. LEGO Star Wars 2016 Pictures and Rumors

    It looks like the Rebel outfits in the new battlepack are modeled after the Battlefront Jakku DLC. And the packaging looks like a sandy landscape. After seeing the trailer for the DLC on YouTube, I'm 100% more on board with the Rebels battlepack.
  14. LEGO Star Wars 2016 Pictures and Rumors

    At least the printed head showing Kylo Ren's mask will still be exclusive to the shuttle - now everyone is happy! It's a little unfortunate that the figures can't stand up inside of the troop transport, but it still looks like an alright set. I'll definitely be getting both.
  15. LEGO Star Wars 2016 Pictures and Rumors

    I think it comes down to the brutality of the scene. Blowing up a planet is violent, sure, but the scene isn't. And thus LEGO produced a Death Star set. Killing some Tusken Raiders is technically less heinous, but the scene is graphic. Shmi is bloody. Anakin cuts down Tusken Raiders as they scream in pain. It's the same reason why there won't be an "Anakin massacres the younglings" set.
