  1. Future Star Wars Sets

    So, this rumour of a Feb 2018 Super Star Destroyer eh? That would be a bad release. I'd buy it for the collection, but it's quite a boring looking ship, tbh. The Imperial would be much better - the MOCs out there make a mockery of the official one. Lego did a great job on the Millennium Falcon re-release. Let's hope the other rumor that it WILL be an ISD is true. 10,000 piece kit? How awesome. LED lighting system? Incredible but unlikely. If they followed that up with a UCS TIE bomber or similar in Spring....... I would tip my hat to Lego.
  2. 21309 NASA Apollo Saturn V (LEGO Ideas)

    Lego uk online has orders for the Apollo again but limited to 1 piece only
  3. Future Star Wars Sets

    The Naboo Royal Starship doesn't fit into the Star Wars universe at all - in my opinion, those 3 middle films are best forgotten altogether!
  4. Future Star Wars Sets

    if they packaged and marketed it right, it would probably sell almost as fast as the Millennium Falcon did! (well, maybe not quite) But I think from what I've read it's never gonna happen.
  5. 21309 NASA Apollo Saturn V (LEGO Ideas)

    so it is - limited stock it says - what the hell does that even mean? they found some more out the back or........ Lego can only produce like a batch of 10 every couple of months or something??
  6. 21309 NASA Apollo Saturn V (LEGO Ideas)

    So... there is a new Taj Mahal coming out (yeah wrong thread I know but.... it has more pieces than the Mil Falc so kinda relevant!) It also casts doubt on the validity of collecting Star Wars Lego now as it can be assumed every 10 years it'll be re-realsed if popular. Bah!
  7. [REVIEW] 75192 - Millennium Falcon

    Good review. I wonder if I'll ever build mine................ hmm.
  8. Future Star Wars Sets

    I'm old-skool so mostly prefer the older ships but Kylo Ren's is a nice ship. A UCS of this done absolutely correctly would be welcomed.
  9. 21309 NASA Apollo Saturn V (LEGO Ideas)

    I'm on holiday in Vietnam and found a toy shop with Lego - they have 2 Saturns left! But RRP here is like $400 each! WTF.
  10. Next UCS Set

    What didn't you like about the most recent Sandcrawler? It's awesome!
  11. 21309 NASA Apollo Saturn V (LEGO Ideas)

    It says temporarily unavailable on Lego UK - so is this set planned to come back?
  12. Next UCS Set

    2015 was an awesome year for UCS with the Slave 1 and the TIE Fighter 2016 appeared to suck BIG TIME with the re-release of the Death Star and Assault on Hoth 2017 has been a great year with the Snowspeeder and the Millennium Falcon So let's just hope 2018 is not a "suck" year! 2014 only had the Sandcrawler which although fantastic... is just one UCS! Seems even years are worse than odd numbered years...... : \ My 2018 dream: May release - 6000+ piece, minifig scale AT-AT October release - 10,000+ piece ISD / Harrower Class Dreadnought / Resurgent Class Battlecruiser The world's going crazy... why can't Lego? :)
  13. Next UCS Set

    Apparently Cavegod's is 2 x minifig scale. This guy copied CG's and made his own version, that is true minifig scale - I think it's awesome, especially the interior detailing: Lego need to get onto this ASAP. I mean, if strength and stability and weight are the key issue, just build some custom plastic pieces, or use Technics parts, that build a solid frame for the whole thing that everything else is built around. The core of the legs don't need to be actual lego pieces, they can just clad the outside. Can't be that hard!
  14. Next UCS Set

    Definitely. Bur if it doesn't have Leia in slave costume with a chain around her neck.... I'd consider it a failure. Look at the last Sandcrawler - I imagine that level of detail and excellence but in Sailbarge form! It would be an awesome UCS contender for sure... ;) And the FULL-ROSTA of figures this time!!
