  1. [MOC] Hide and escape

    pretty nice I have to say, the Falcon too, but maybe a cone element would be more effective as the cockpit?
  2. LEGO Star Wars 2017 Pictures and Rumors

    Exactly, because they want to CRUSH the resistance! (and also because merchandising) But good call updating AT-ST-s, and AT-AT-s, they can come in the next waves. I wouldn't count on them. Screentime doesn't really correlate with the prominance of a set. (Think quadjumper....but if you think about it, the Slave-I didn't have too much screentime either, nevertheless, it's one of the most iconic SW-ships)
  3. [MOC] Leia's Shuttle

    Simple, but pretty effective, one question though: what is Thrawn doing on the ship just chilling like that???!!
  4. Thoughts on The Last Jedi Sets

    It's a pretty obvious one really. I am actually happy there hasn't been a Nebulon-B in Lego form yet, it would disappoint (much like Han Solo as a father). Especially after Mortesv's Nebulon-B...

    oh, someone already created a topic for mods, better grab your popcorn right meow, this is where the fun begins
  6. Thoughts on The Last Jedi Sets

    Well, the display value of the Destroyer is questionable, with that flat bottom...on the other hand at least it doesn't need a stand. I am actually quite glad that I don't like most of this wave's sets,(even more glad is my fiancee :D) because I'm starting to outgrow my apartment with LEGO But the bomber will fit for sure once a bigger discount is available
  7. Thoughts on The Last Jedi Sets

    The whole line in itself is just overpriced. And I'm not saying this in an "it was all better in the past" way, it's objectively, even compared to the previous waves overpriced. That said, I surprised myself with a Silencer for my Bday using some VIP points. That way it was ok. But - sorry for repeating myself - the full price is appalling, and the underside and back of the ship are very unrefined in my opinion. Haven't seen the source material of course, but I can't imagine it would be close to those chunks of linear surfaces at the back. This wave has a few nice sets, (BB8 as mentioned, the Bomber) but I only recommend buying at a discounted price.
  8. LEGO Star Wars 2017 Pictures and Rumors

    Thank god for that...just wait until everyone built their MF and they start to nitpick it
  9. I snagged a TIE Striker for almost 50% off, still not one of my favourites, but having built it, it's not too bad. Especially for this price.

    *enters, checks to see if the UCS Falcon mania passed yet ...nope. exits*
  11. LEGO Star Wars 2017 Pictures and Rumors

    I really don't want to pour gas on the big dumpster fire that is this price discussion, but this kind of thinking is just obnoxious. Just because you or I live in a country where that might be true, trust me, that's not the majority. I come from Hungary, where most people don't even make this kind of money in a month. The people who can - and will - afford this set are obviously over-represented on this forum for the simple reason that it's pretty much dedicated to them. That doesn't mean there are tens of thousands who will buy it. But that's ok. It's an insanely priced, but also insanely high quality, niche set, LEGO knows their collectors, and for the some who are longing for such set since years, it is a treat.
  12. My birthday haul: Kylo's TIE, FO battlepack, plus a FO snowspeeder microfighter just to reach the price limit for the free walker. Not my best purchase, if it weren't my bday, I wouldn't have bought it, and not even going to buy anything else from this wave until they're discounted.
  13. Post your general LEGO Star Wars questions here

    Which region? I'm getting mine today, I sure hope not...
  14. It's a very creative rendition of an otherwise terrible, horrible, no good scene The waterfall (?) could use some more transparent bricks though, but you've clearly built from a limited selection of parts, so credit is deserved.
  15. Next UCS Set

    That's Vader's TIE Advanced 10175, pretty clearly. But if we follow this logic it could also be a huge Stormtrooper head... About the sets on the packaging...these are obviously sets that can be connected to the current release. As some pointed out, the Falcon was not the next set after the DS re-release, but if we keep saying "the next UCS is going to be the this or that" it will inevitably become true eventually. So go on, one day you will be right. Also, I'm not sure this warrants a new topic in itself but I just couldn't refrain from commenting...
