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

    Found them in my local Tesco in the Midlands but had to hunt for them as they weren’t in the aisle with the rest of the Lego stock. They were in a Display area on their own with the Solo sets. Read on FB that other stores had a similar set up so worth just asking or have a wander around the whole store if you get blanks stares from the assistant
  2. LEGO Star Wars 2018 Set Discussion - READ FIRST POST!

    It says: sometimes referred to as system scale. And the citation used is a car. Obviously Lego has a massive range of themes and so there will be a massive range of differentiation in what system scale means within each theme. Add to that ratio factors: a smaller 1 man craft and the difference between system and Minifig scale is much harder to notice/ see. The example given is perfect illustration with the falcon, but any large set will show that system is not default Minifig scale: AT-AT, ISD, The Ghost even. I think Robianco maybe right that the New UCS Y-wing looks closer to the mark than the RO version but is a little oversized to be true Minifig scale
  3. No sadly it requires that 2 of the feet from the left hand side of the Falcon be removed, front and rear (the more central one can remain) as can the other 4
  4. Obviously it will vary country by country but it seems Lego are finally on their way to meeting demand. I say this as here in the UK it has been available for nearly a week in the online store where previously it’s been a matter of a couple of hours and most Lego stores have also been carrying stock. I know that’s small comfort for you in Canada but it is indicative that it will readily available within the foreseeable future

    Thank you for the info @Space_jaco much appreciated and will keep that in mind about the hoses 😉
  6. Post your general LEGO Star Wars questions here

    Are there any unique / really expensive pieces in the UCS R2-D2 ? Never bricklinked anything before but tempted to as the price is starting to get prohibitive on second hand market. Or considering the popularity of the brick built BB8 and the rumours for a similar set for a Porg later in the year, is it a possibility Lego will release another R2 like this?
  7. Finally managed to order one yesterday when they came back in stock. Double VIP was a nice little bonus too. As with most folks all I have to do now is work out where the hell its going to fit 😉
  8. The LEGO Batman Movie Set/CMF Rumors & Discussion

    Is that info from Lego themselves? Or just what the store says as I find that hard to believe. Here, in the U.K at least, when a new CMF range is released if you go to an actual Lego store I have always found that the Lego employees themselves will willingly assist in helping you to feel for specific characters and seem well practiced and far quicker than I so it’s obviously something they do a lot. Seems to me more like an excuse from the retailer to stop theft. Anyways, managed to pick up what I thought were all 20 of 2nd series my local Entertainer after 40 mins of squishing bags, but got home to realise I’d mixed Swimsuit Alfred with Hugo strange ( thought bottle was his glass) and Zanya for Zod ( record cover for newspaper ) not bad success rate though 18/20 rectified this morning at local Smyths and got Alfred and Zod so all good
  9. DC Superheroes 2017 - Set Discussion

    Flying fox is £60 at John Lewis in U.K. Which makes it a considerably more" stomachable" purchase
  10. Interesting as this is in direct conflict with information posted by another user that the Leicester Square store was opening at midnight on the 14th and that sets would be available to be signed by the designer. All too aware from past experiences that different Lego employees give differing answers to the same question ........Would be interested to know which is correct Personally I can't believe that having made the release such a "BIG" event with the slow burn of teasers etc. That Lego would choose not to have the set available in bricks and mortar stores :/
  11. What's your recent LEGO Star Wars Purchase?

    Picked up Rebel Trooper Battlepack 75164 for £2 at Asda ...........don't usually bother with battlepacks but £2 seriously who can say no to that? Plenty on shelves nice lil army sat for folks that way minded apologies for quote box can't seem to get rid
  12. Post your general LEGO Star Wars questions here

    In th UK It's readily available at most places you would find magazines. It's totally kid centric and aimed at young children with short comic stories and colouring activities etc. After a bit of googling it appears it is produced by a U.K. Based publisher so it maybe it's not available in other countries.

    It is indeed the "free gift" with next months copy of Lego Star Wars magazine. Release date is 8th March. Current gift is a micro scale Ghost

    Not sure what country you are in but Ikea are pretty multi national no? So should have you covered ? They look like Ribba box frames to me from IKEA. Good price and wide range of sizes.
