    What's your recent LEGO Star Wars Purchase?

    Bought 75018 Imperial Troop Transport (i don't like their design. Would have taken 5 BPs if they were OT style) 75019 Shadow Troopers some time ago. Today caught 2 x 75081 T-16 Skyhopper on a sale.

    LEGO Star Wars 2015 Pictures and Rumors

    Honestly spoken, i don't think that they would go that path. The SW line of TLG is heavily focused on minifigs. Most sets are being designed around them and not the reverse, i think. I actually don't know if that Echo base rumor is reliable. If just a rumor - why not expecting a new Cloud City?! ESB most likely the most famous episode. While the battle on Hoth is pretty memorable, so is Bespin and the movie scenes on it. I pretty much prefer this over the x-th Echo Base incarnation. By the way, i am surprised that no SW-pics from the toy fairs trickle through. Isn't at least the first supposed to be over already?

    From the (blurry) pics i have seen so far, i can safely say that i will have to get the Tydirium and the final duel set. They both look awesome and are must-haves for an AFOL, i think. Regarding the design, the Lambda class shuttle might appear to be a little oversized but it is full of details such a shuttle is supposed to have. The final duel reminds me of Palpatine's arrest, which i actually like a lot. I have no problem with TLG's general tendency to make the sets more playable. At least they have found ways to keep them accurate and displayable so far. This mixture makes for success as the ISD and Mos Eisley have shown. The flash speeder looks interesting - also because of the minifigs to populate our shelves. The Naboo fighter insted does not interest me at all. The Gozanti cruiser gets me intrigued. While i don't like the rebels series (it simply is not pointed at my age range), bigger starships remain rare but are an important element of that universe. Since interior matters a lot to me, i wait for better pics. Pricing remains an issue and the price/part ratio not always makes for a good indicator, since pieces have become smaller (several pieces are used instead of one - although one would be available). I am interested in the prospected pricing in Europe. Hopefully they won't slap us here. The last wave was kept within the reasonable - i take this as a good sign.

    It might have already have been discussed and been missed by me: Do we already know whether the named sets we do know of yet will be microfighters? I think of the Flash Speeder, TIE Fighter and such... While the now available Shadow Trooper Set shows connection to "The Force Unleashed" - i wonder whether this might also be a hint at upcoming story arcs of EP VII...

    What's your recent LEGO Star Wars Purchase?

    At 29.6% off i couldn't resist. I have spent years waiting for a new ISD. 6211 reached astronomous prices here in Germany. I rather buy muliples of sets i like than going for something different i basically don't want to have at all.

    What's your recent LEGO Star Wars Purchase?

    Just ordered another 2 x 75055 Imperial Star Destroyer (for a total of four) and 2 x 75052 Mos Eisley Cantina to make Tatooine a more lively place. These are really lovely sets!

    Not necessarily and i hope they don't do that. Just have a peek at this great review: http://www.eurobricks.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=44199 Twelve years before the 2015 waves, they managed to create the excellent result with a mere 700 pieces. With today's pieces selection and building techniques at hand, they might very well achieve a great result without making the set too expensive. 2012's Jabba's Palace is a great set and very well can stand on it's own. I like it very much and own two of it. Counting the pieces it was too expensive, yes, but has a great number and selection of rare minifigs and special pieces in a rare colouring. It's main drawback is the separate Rancor's pit which was terribly overpriced (i speak for Europe of course) and offered too little (only the Rancor himself) for a high retail value. Spreading Cloud City over several sets and maybe even several waves would be the worst decision TLG might make, i think. I hope they will go the more obvious - and in regards of expected sales - more promising way.

    Basically you are right. Nevertheless - in this special case - an OT fan could be disappointed without even seeing pis. If this really were a REBELS set, we can expect to get the stormie design of the series. This would disappoint people like me who long for a small set containig regular stormies of the new OT design. Except for the ISD they are hard to get. But OT fans want them and intend to buy multiples of a BP or at least small set. We want the 'original' soldiers and not the comic dudes. With the REBELS series deserving and getting a lot of attention in regards of upcoming sets, there is plenty of chance to throw in a stormie here and there. Meanwhile OT sets become few and far between. Therefore i see enough reason to be disappointed by the mere knowlegde of the ITT being one more REBELS set.
