  1. More than anything else Im just really excited that the 4x4 TIE top hatch dish is finally going to exist in light grey.
  2. TIE Fighter & TIE Interceptor

    Those interceptor wings are a work of art.
  3. Lego r2d2.... store display??

    Im quite confident Ive seen this design in a store display. So, given that I live in Australia, I think its a fairly safe bet that there were more than two of these. Im also pretty confident that that was in 2001 or 2002, although I cant guarantee that your specific one wasn't put together for the 30th anniversary. Also, how novel to see someone here worried about the integrity of the glue. I totally understand why, but still, not something you see every day.
  4. Is it possible to sort the search result by latest? I havent been able to find a way to, it insists on showing me "best"
  5. I was on the fence about the UCS BB-8 up until now, but I need this in my life.
  6. I think the dumbest thing about the FO AT-ST is that its going to be on shelves next to a whole AT-ST, for the same price.
  7. Im fairly sure we're allowed to tell people that r/legoleaks exists. We just cant link it
  8. 75192 - UCS Millennium Falcon 2017 MOD/MOC

    Possible solution for the corner problem While it can certainly be done better, I believe this piece holds the solution to the corner problem. Unfortunately I dont have any more of them to explore the solution further. Its "available" in light bley in the upcoming SDCC-exclusive carbonite Han brickhead, but since SDCC exlusives dont get exclusive molds, I would expect it'll be available in retail sets relatively soon

    Hopefully that means it'll be available in the discovery centre too. Although that thing's surrounded by so many stairs, the cart wont be much help.

    Or you could make a vip account and hit refresh on sep. 15th.
  11. LEGO Star Wars 2017 Pictures and Rumors

    Lego confirmed that its only available online and through Lego stores. We do usually get D2C sets in regular stores here, yes, but this was in response to someone asking if it would be available in Mexico, and their answer was no, so I'm thinking it probably wont be available in Australia except online and at the certified store in Dreamworld and the discovery centre in melbourne. IN any case, we can probably get it cheaper by importing it from the US here anyway, at least once its readily available and the scalpers have moved on.

    Nobody will ever have such a clue, Lego doesn't publicly discuss such things. Or much of anything else for that matter. But basically, the answer to any "does anyone know why lego did x" will always be "no"

    Exchange rate is not, nor should it be, the only deciding factor in pricing between different regions. Australia has a higher minimum and median wage than the US, as well as higher import and sales taxes. Its also a small and isolated market, meaning shipments here are more expensive and less profitable. Also note that you'd be hard pressed to find a country which gets lower lego prices than the US, and also that US RRP doesnt even include sales tax.
  14. LEGO Star Wars 2017 Pictures and Rumors

    IMO there's no reason to at this point. The falcon's the last lego Star Wars set to be announced for 2017. From there on out, its all 2018, which already has a separate discussion and news thread. Once the falcon's officially announced, there's nothing left to leak for 2017, so its not like anyone needs to stick around here for news.

    Personally Ive been burned too many times by all D2C set selling out in seconds the moment there's any discount on them. 10% off just isnt worth waiting for IMO, especially on a set that size (like, if I can pay $1440 for it, I can just as much pay $1600 for it)
