  1. I highly doubt 75309 is the gunship. First off, there's no reason a republic gunship should cost that much. Secondly it's $349.99. There have been only two other Star Wars sets ever released at that price. These are 75222: Betrayal at Cloud City and 75290: Mos Eisley Cantina. Both are also the only two Master Builders Series sets ever released. This would mean 75309 is likely another Master Builders set. Maybe Yavin IV or Jabba's Palace? I'll take either? If anything the gunship is likely 75303, which MandRproductions claims isn't releasing this year (as far as he's aware). In the first few minutes of his 2021 leaks video, he explains this happened to 75144. 75144 was initially said to be released in 2016 but got "canceled", only to be released the year after as the UCS Snowspeeder. If I'm right, we may have to wait until 2022 to get the Gunship. Maybe I'm wrong, But I have a feeling I'm not. Anywho a UCS AT-AT? How exciting! I didn't think they'd actually do it!
  2. In Solid Brix Studios’ new livestream we can see 75297 and 75302 in the instructions for 75299. He shows it about an hour in. The shuttle looks decent, but the figures are lame. Luke, Vader and a pilot. It doesn’t look like Vader has arm printing.
  3. Is this new TIE fighter the rumored Moff Gideon TIE, or are they two separate sets?
  4. Is there any validity to the CMF rumor? I thought there was little to no chance of a Star Wars series ever happening.
  5. Thanks. Found it. Very cool set! I wonder how common that Vader figure will be in the future.
  6. Ugh I can’t find pictures anywhere! It seems everyone deleted them already. Would anyone be willing to dm me a pic? I’d love to see this set.
  7. I feel like LEGO waited so long to release this set, it would be met with criticism regardless of quality. This set’s quality is just as good (if not better) than most modern Star Wars sets. Sure it’s a little overpriced, but every Star Wars set nowadays is overpriced. I think everyone’s forgetting that this isn’t a UCS set or a MOC. It’s a mass produced item designed mainly for kids. And judging it as a mass produced item designed mainly for kids, I think LEGO did a fantastic job. On a side note, now that we’re closer to NYTF, does anyone know if seeing summer sets is a possibility? I’m very curious to see what these new sets look like!
  8. For a playset this looks phenomenal. I was expecting a much smaller and less detailed set for $70 or so, but LEGO surprised me with this behemoth. Really the whole existence of this set is a big pleasant surprise. I think the figures could be a little better (in quality) but it seems it’s possible that one or two are not finished. Waiting six months is cruel.
  9. I’m not too worried. The 2011 Sith infiltrator and the 2016 Resistance Troop Transporter were both $70. Those were good sets that are in-universe somewhat comparable in size. I’m sure it’ll look good.
  10. Oops, I missed that! Looks like you’re probably right then. It’ll be nice to know what set it is so far in advance!
  11. It is possible for the Gunship to come out this year? LEGO definitely had all three of the sets ready to produce, and the set was said to be one of the next UCS sets. Additionally, LEGO is giving out 3 UCS LAAT sets at random along with 3 75255 Yodas (seemingly at the same time). That set would be retired in a year wouldn’t it? Would LEGO give out a retired set? Maybe I’m off my hinges but it seems like LEGO accidentally pinpointed a relative release date.
  12. @jdubbs yesterday’s leak was a great surprise, but when can we expect more leaked images like it? Do you know?
  13. I was also thinking it might be a Venator. The pricing lines up pretty well to ships at that scale. It’s possible it’s a ROS Star destroyer, but I doubt it. I guess we’ll see.
  14. I’m awfully disappointed by the minority of TIE Bomber fans. I absolutely adore the vehicle, and I think it would look fantastic in UCS style. Oh well. In 2009 Home One was released, the year after, the Slave One (minus a landing pad). Palpatine’s Arrest wasn’t released until 2012, but it was released. I’m sure we’ll see all of these sets in the next 3-4 years based off that 2009 vote. On a side note, all three of those 2009-2012 sets had fantastic figures. Does anyone remember if minifigures were part of the 2009 vote too?

    What happened to the 4+ Slave I? Is that still a thing, or is it coming out later in the year?
