  1. [MOC] [WIP] 140cm X-wing

    I'm always in awe, when looking at this beauty, can't wait to see the finished model! My opinion: the left side with the sharp edges looks more accurate.
  2. [MOC] Jedi High Council

    Simple, but effective design, this I could imagine ironed out as an official set one day.

    Ok, well that is, if it's valid of course, anyway we'll see soon. With all this fuss around it I don't think they'll risk it being smaller, especially that they're boasting about the size for weeks. Don't want to fire up the price discussion again, but that's really the big question here. In any case, I started playing the lottery, who knows
  4. LEGO Star Wars 2017 Pictures and Rumors

    To be fair, it doesn't say it will be the biggest LEGO set ever, it says LEGO Star Wars is assembling IT'S biggest set ever. So according to my logic, that just means it's the biggest LEGO Star Wars set.
  5. LEGO Star Wars 2017 Pictures and Rumors

    That is also a fair point. But I have no doubts since the last teaser image that it will be a Falcon. "Search your feelings. You know it to be true."

    Fair enough, but these are the older UCS sets, since then, they got progressively more expensive, except for the snowspeeder. It's not entirely impossible though that they kept the price of that at bay, so the Falcon can get more expensive again. I think they know how far they can push it, and I bet they will, because for all the people who have been waiting for this set, price will be secondary. The most annoying thing about early VIP release was to me that the Saturn V e.g. was not even announced earlier to VIP-s, and they started selling them on S@H half a day early. Obviously, by the time I got to it on release day, it was already backordered. I know this will be probably available to VIP-s earlier but the S@H site is still a mess, it's sure to break down on release day if the demand will really be that high...
  7. I mean that was already rumored for this year, is it now confirmed for 2018 from a reliable source?
  8. Boy, this thread is getting out of hand really fast...I can already barely follow, what is this with the Yoda hut again?

    Since the trooper there has not been named officially, we can safely assume that he is Rex. If that makes you feel better :) I always feel a bit of cringe with these, retconning established characters to older chapters of the saga just makes its world ever smaller.

    We're ending up with just that periodically every month or so :) I'm beginning to think the UCS Falcon is the embodiment of the ghost of some Sith Lord, destined to tear this forum apart from the inside I can already see this thread will be locked down for a while after it comes out, then a couple of people will try to open separate threads to vent, those will also be shut down, and the posters blocked, and after a month or so we might be able to have normal conversation again. It's sad really, that everyone thinks their opinion is better, that's why we can't have nice things...

    When exactly have you seen a high-profile Lego set ever sell on half price?
  12. Post your general LEGO Star Wars questions here

    OK, that's just insane
  13. LEGO Star Wars 2017 Pictures and Rumors

    Definitely. It's not like they can screw up so badly that people will turn from them. Making electronic devices is a tad more complicated than selling plastic toys, in Lego, it will always be a question of personal taste, even if 90 percent of people think it's bad, that 10%, who already saved up the money in months will buy it anyway. Heck, if TLG decided to put it up for preorder based on just the one teaser picture we've already seen, it would sell out in minutes. That's how dangerous this fandom is

    There was a guy here in the recent purchase thread who posted some crazy hauls as well, but 250 ewok villages.....damn
  15. LEGO Star Wars 2017 Pictures and Rumors

    Interesting then, that for almost double price (?) they would release a set with no interior and similar size. (If true of course)
