  1. 😂 That's interesting about the Hasbro poll. Fortunately I think there is enough desire for the Gunship that it would sell well regardless. I personally voted for the Gunship because yes I did want to signal to Lego that we need more prequel era sets, but also because I would be interested in buying the set.
  2. All of the new Star Wars sets from the end of 2019 / beginning of 2020 have used the old style capes. I haven't bought any sets from other themes so I can't really comment as to whether this seems to be a definitive change across the board or a SW thing. Anyone else have thoughts on this? I definitely prefer the soft capes too.

    Harry Potter 2020 - Rumors & Discussion

    I know! Then what will we do. Seriously though, we could obviously just wait for the sets to come out and then enjoy them, but this whole leaks and discussion thing just adds a whole other level of enjoyment. I saw this page a few weeks ago and all I can say is, they better not be exaggerating getting our hopes up like this!

    Harry Potter 2020 - Rumors & Discussion

    I'm thinking maybe the best we can hope for is if someone leaks info of what they see at the London Toy Fair at the end of this month. Trouble is, leakers have become scarcer on here and in the Star Wars forum now because of the vitriol they have received. :(

    Lego Licensed Parts available from Bricks & Pieces

    Found an interesting item available on B&P this afternoon; Kylo Ren's crossed lightsaber blade is available to buy. I don't think it's always been available and I thought it would be classed as a Star Wars piece and be unavailable.
  6. Now that's interesting.
  7. My love or not of the media attached to sets definitely affects my decisions. For me, I buy sets specifically because of how I feel about the media. Sets and material objects only hold value to me because of the memories or feelings attached. Each set I own is a bit like a memory capsule, not only because of how I feel about the source material, but because I can almost always recall when, where and how I was feeling when I built a set. So until I saw The Rise of Skywalker I had no attachment to the new sets apart from the fact that they are Star Wars. That was enough for me to want to add the minifigures to my collection, but it wasn't until I saw, and mostly liked, the movie that I decided I wish to add some of the sets to my display too.
  8. I guess they made the Tie Dagger instead because of how similar the Whisper is to Vonreg's Tie. Still it would be great to get the Whisper even though ...

    What's your recent LEGO Star Wars Purchase?

    Finally got my UCS Millenium Falcon; now just to build it! :)
  12. I'm very impressed with how well the sets so far have covered TROS in terms of vehicles and minifigures. No slip ups or irrelevancies this time around like with Kylo's Shuttle in the FA wave and the First Order Heavy Scout Walker in TLJ wave. :)

    Thank you! I think it looks pretty good, especially how you've filled in the body. :) Great job!

    On a different topic, has anybody else actually bought the new Frozen Jewellery box to use the horse as a patronus? Does it look good next to the stag? :)

    Harry Potter 2019 - Rumors & discussion

    Me too. Not because those sets have been done before exactly (they are so old now, although still good in their own way), but because like you say the later movies have never really had any real attention. And I would like this theme to continue for at least another couple of years and whilst there are still new FB movies coming out, there is really no need for Lego to rush the theme. They could do years 5 and 6 in 2020 and then year 7 in 2021 and then if FB gets the five movies planned still go back and go over the movies again. Personally I am very excited to see what we get from the later movies from here on as I have never owned any sets or minifigures relating to years 5-7.
