  1. These three Solo sets are not incredible, but all are great and balanced. We have brand new figs or interesting new design for the others. Each vehicle have design and shapes we've never seen before. There is uncommon parts and new alien species (Rio and the guards). In my opinion, there is far more fresh things in this three sets than in the whole TLJ sets, where we still looking for aliens. The AT Hauler is underscale but that was especting, we still have to see the indoor, there may have a shower . The forward arms are not accurate but it still better than cables for playability. I'm not against Rio arms, it's the best compromise for the fig shape. Val is great. Speeders are full of interesting details. The Conveyex is the best of the three for me, and maybe the best Star Wars set this year. It was expected for such set to have no tracks and just one wagon. The ones who want more troopers and wagon just have to buy several. The shape is nice, scaled, there is enough space inside the wagon and the engine. Great build, parts and figs.

    Future Star Wars Sets

    High enough to set the senate duel between Yoda and Palpatine. There's no chance that we see the senate with simple senators. We had the ''duel on Geonosis''. Considering the period and the importance of this duel, there is no reason a ''Senate duel'' set in the same size minimum never appears in shelves. I don't imagine guards with robes to be in such a set, but i highly hope we'll see Mas Amedda. After seeing "The last Jedi", it's not really difficult to imagine the set we could have this summer, due to the lack of source material. I even wonder how TLG should not give us a "Snoke throne room", with Snoke, Rey, Kylo Ren, and 3 or 4 praetorian guards (remembering the scene, two would be not enough). Something on Canto Bight would be probable also. For my own, I'd like a playset with police speeder, fathier and a part of the casino (with aliens figs at least). Of course an A-wing can be also expecting.
  3. Well, I'm wondering the same. We had nothing really new about that last summer (Quarrie was new but the fifth Mon Calamari released), and nothing at all in the Last Jedi sets. Seven new figs have been leaked right now about the upcoming moovie and nothing really exotic. Aliens are part of Star Wars DNA. About what I saw, it's becoming worrisome
  4. Well, the blue pilot seems not to be part of Resistance, nor really Rebels, so I highly suppose she's on the sandspeeder set. I can be wrong but it makes sense.

    Agreed, the colour scheme is beautiful, and I'm sure Lego can make it impressive with bricks as they did for the two Resistance T-70 X-wing. Anyway, we need a new T-65 X-wing, and it would be better if it's a new update of Luke's ship. The Partisan's is a possibility fot this next one, with general Merrick's. The Partisan X-wing is also a way to give us Saw Gerrera and more as minifig.

    Well, it's just your point of view.

    Next UCS Set

    The last UCS or big playsets were all updates, the Falcon, the Snowspeeder, Death Star and Hoth. We need something fresh, at least for 2018. Possibilities for UCS: Poe Dameron's X-wing, ARC-170, Venator, and the imperial shuttle from Rogue One are the best choices I think. Playsets: Yavin IV, Coruscant Jedi Temple, Geonosis Arena. However, I agree that new version of Tantive IV, ISD are overdue, but I don't understand the ones wanting some TIE.

    LEGO Star Wars 2017 Pictures and Rumors

    I didn't think Lego was able to do something as ugly as this heavy scout walker. When we espect the Crait vehicule, something on Canto Bight and a resistance A-wing, well, this set and a quarter of an other vessel can be disappointing, after the poor minifig range.

    LEGO Star Wars 2017 Pictures and Rumors

    The Tatooine BP is also a proove that we'll see other generic aliens in battle pack after the excellent Rebel Alliance BP. For the other one, if it's confirm to be about jedi, I don't expect clone trooper but something very new like an other jedi knight (Coleman Kcaj, Oppo Rancisis) or a generic temple guard. Clone troopers need several BP just for themselves.

    LEGO Star Wars 2017 Pictures and Rumors

    Agreed. But TLG is not helped by the source material. He was said that there won't have any important alien in TLJ, I think Rian Johnson forgot that in a galaxy far far away, there are thousands intelligent species, it's a shame. For not helping, resistance soldier outfits are really boring. By what we saw now about the TLJ, only pretorian guard could be interesting with resistance pilot helmets. It's bad after the amazing Rogue One figs range. The whole summer wave should be the worst since a while for aliens, the best opportunity was shamely miss with the absence of kaminoan in the 75191.

    [MOC] [Instructions] UCS Zeta-class cargo shuttle

    The thing I love on your MOC is that it seems like an official Lego product in its technics and look, it's not common at all that MOCers do such a job. Congratulations!

    These ships are more starfighters and the UCS enables to give them more accuracy in shape and to show a lot of details. The difference of scale is significant, you have about three more times parts compare to accurate minifig scale set. there's no interior, just pilot seat. the building technics change also. The UCS scale gave to X-wing a thiner and more agressive shape with more accuracy for the reactors. The UCS Y-wing was full of details in the hullless part of the ship and the structure beams of the reactors were better integrated. The snowspeeder gave us a really detail ship. Of course some parts of the U-wing could be more accurate in an UCS scale, but the most important is the inside, passengers areas and cockpit, and UCS scale is not done for that (look at the Slave 1, Imperial shuttle and Falcon). An other problem for a UCS U-Wing would be the sturdiness of the wings. I saw with mine, open wings are not stable enough. That's why Lego made them thiner and shorter on the 75155, I'm not sure there is solution, you still have one really short rotative axis for a huge horizontal panel (mines were 58 studs long). It's a little bit hard to explain, I agree with that , but some ships are done for UCS scale, others no. Lego seems to think the same. RĂ©sistance X-wing, ARC-170 and Venator will be definitly huge UCS set, U-wing, Republic Gunship, Home One, Scimitar won't.

    U-wing is not done for UCS. You can see mine in "Minifig scale U-wing" topic, it may be improve but I shown that we can do a U-wing in minifig scale, detailed, fair to the movie in shape and for the inside, the whole for less than a thousand parts. I consider the U-wing as a "playable" ship, like the republic gunship which I don't see either in UCS. I read somewhere that Lego designers will nether do ships like the Nebulon B frigate for reasons of stability, it's understandable but bad because it's the most interesting rebel ship for UCS. On the other hand, it seem not impossible to get the Profundity in UCS, ok, the lower arrow is problematic, but we could have two high and solid stands from either side of the bridge. The ship itself has no weakness in its structure. The best RO ship for UCS still the cargo shuttle, in the same scale than the 10212 Imperial shuttle. The problem is the part count, it would be around 4000 and I'm not sure Lego is ready to make a such big set for that ship appearing only in RO, even if its the best and the one with the more screentime.

    If Lego exploited as much Rogue One as The Force Awakens, we would have high hopes to get both Merrick X-wing and the Partisan one. We could have more a Hammerhead frigate, a TIE shuttle (the one landing the death troopers on Scarif, seen as well in Kafrene), a Jedha ambush set, Saw's den, Erso Homestead, AT-ACT, cargo shuttle, TIE fighter, Kafrene assassination, sand barricade on Scarif ..... But this is not the case. To resume, Rogue One is consider among the fans as the best or second best Star Wars moovie when The Force Awakens is maybe the worst. Moreover, there's (far) more source material in RO to utilize. But sadly, TFA had a stronger promotion than RO and was clearly adressed to a larger and younger public. However, there's charismatics vehicles and characters in RO which appears both in ANH and in Rebels (and in the Prequels too). So I don't think that we will have more RO sets than TFA eventually did. But i can't imagine that Lego won't give us between 3 and 6 RO sets in the next three or four waves about Saw Gerrera, Yavin and/or X-Wing, the cargo shuttle. Hope we'll get at least figs of Saw, Galen Erso, Merrick, Draven, Deux Tubes.

    Minifig Scale U-wing

    It's on the way . The second picture is indicative. It's far more realistic than the canopy (and easy) option, and the rendering is on the line of the lower hull. The most difficult in the brickbuilt option is to do the triangular windows on each side. Their shape is really hard to reproduce, there is no much space to build them and attach them. Maybe most of people don't care of these stupid side windows but I'm perfectionist.
