  1. No need for Boba if you have the UCS Slave I. My top four picks would be Lando, Bespin Leia, Bespin Luke and Hoth Han (just for the pants).

    Yea, way to alienate the most hardcore customers.

    Harry Potter 2018 - Rumors & Discussion

    Don’t want to pile on, but there is a Gryffindor Common Room in 71043. It is across from the library and behind a sticker of the fat lady. There are some things I don’t love about the set (WAY too many stickers), but as a display piece it looks fantastic. It overshadows the Orthanc and Disney Castle I have it next to. It rivals the UCS Falcon as the most impressive set I have. Don’t really understand the hate. They are coming out with minifig scale sets or get the 2011 set. It seems to have want you want. Also, if you are the biggest HP fan, I’m still guessing you’re in Slytherin 😉.
  4. A little disappointed they didn’t update Han in carbonite for the new hair piece.

    You were able to deduce that it was micro scale after nano figures leaked. That doesn’t exactly make you Sherlock Holmes. Also, the large tower off the Great Hall is the Main Staircase Tower, not the Gryffindor Tower, which is different.

    I could see them adding a few more sets to the system scale castle but it won’t be anywhere close to complete. First, the two components we already have are slightly awkward to display together and that issue compounds the more sets you add. Second, they won’t want to cannabilze sales from the D2C set. This is the best we are going to get and, frankly, I’m fine with it. Also, if you want more of the castle to be there, build it.
  8. Hogwarts is VIP release August 15th. Last year, the Falcon’s VIP release was mid-September (what a clusterf@ck) and images appeared in late August, right before the official announcement. So basically two to theee weeks before the VIP release and a month or so before the full release.
  9. Anyone else receive the VIP email about the DJ minifig promo?

    [REVIEW] 75192 - Millennium Falcon

    The first image is from an earlier source material from the 80s. Here is an article detailing the history of the changes of where the escape pods are. Once Lucasfilm started taking other materials more seriously and worrying about canon vs non-canon, the escape pods have been in the rear. http://livingwithstarwars.blogspot.com/2013/01/where-are-millennium-falcon-escape-pods.html?m=1 Haynes’ Owner’s Workshop Manual (a great pod and nice companion to the Falcon) has great information on the escape pods.

    [REVIEW] 75192 - Millennium Falcon

    Great review of an awesome set! Kudos to building it in 17 hours! It took me about 20. One minor correction - the side circles are airlocks, not the escape pods. The escape pods are in the rear of the ship (that’s why the escape pod hatches are in the engineering compartment).

    Image was taken off Reddit due to a copyright notice. Seems like unofficial confirmation that it is legit.

    Don't think they would release Han Solo sets in September to cannabilze sales of the inital TLJ wave.
