  1. I think this year has been great up to this point. We got some really good stuff like the Boarding The Tantive IV, Sith Infiltrator, Rex’s Y Wing and the Clone Battle Pack. I usually don’t pick up sets before the August wave because most of the time they’re pretty skippable. But that’s just the appetizer and the summer wave which is usually the main course isn’t really delivering in that regard and a big part of that is that three sets at decent price ranges are going to show nobody has even seen. That’s why I feel like it’s falling flat imo. I’m still extremely excited for the Sarlacc Pit and UCS Sail Barge (my favorite ship finally gets the VIP treatment) but I feel for the summer wave of the 25th anniversary of Lego Star Wars, it’s not what it could have been imo.
  2. I’m surprised it took them so long to realize this fact, maybe the Jedi Bob circle jerking finally wore off but I actually agree with them. I would literally take anything regardless of what movie or TV show it comes from over a dark Millennium Falcon or a Jedi Bob starfighter. Sets based on an upcoming TV show only an handful of people are going to watch. Especially with it being the The Phantom Menace’s 25th birthday and the only system scale set we have is the Sith Infiltrator which I loved but I want more.

    What a shame with the limited run, the crocodile ruin is every what I imagined for a small set for an Adventurers reboot.

    Has any one found any comparisons out there between the 2018 Great Hall and the 2023 Great Hall? Trying to gauge a size on this bad boy to see if I’m willing to sink $200 for it.

    I keep looking over the photos of the Durmstrang Ship and I’m just so in love….Like I knew it was going to be good but this just blows my mind every time I see it.

    Indeed it is, you can see a little grey sticking out which I assume is the third snake handle.

    Yooooooo the Durmstrang Ship looks glorious!!!! Love the crazy shaping of it and the minifig selection is superb! Also dig all the new shield pieces. Instabuy.

    Not really confirmed yet but since all of the other sets from the survey have been confirmed will be releasing or have already been released, chances for The Burrow D2C are really high, like 90%.

    Dang, I rescind everything I said about the Great Hall prior, this is such a beaut from the outside! I’ll still probably wait to see the final layout with future additions before picking it up, but this looks wonderful. I imagine the eventual main tower they make to with this is going to be magnificent.

    Another year, another wave of just getting the minifigs. Love Malkin and the Troll. I’m really disappointed with the Great Hall cause I’m not seeing almost double the value of the Chamber of Secrets or Great Hall. Fingers crossed Durmstrang Ship is killer.

    The Durmstrang Ship is probably the only thing I’m eagerly anticipating in this entire wave. Fingers crossed it’s a decent size with Beauxbaton’s Carriage being included. Also can’t wait for Karkaroff and Barty Crouch Sr., I’m sure they’ll deliver. Oddly enough I’m also intrigued by Madam Malkins and how well it scales with the big DA. I feel like it might go well next to the Magical Menagerie. Not excited for the new Hogwarts because I’m sure it’s gonna look amazing and I don’t need anymore encouragement to buy a third Hogwarts expansion.
  13. HYPE TRAIN FOR THR BARGE IS BACK ON THE TRACKS BOYS!!!!! I’m so excited that while the mini figure lineup isn’t perfect, between the two sets you get the key players and I’m so excited to get my hands on a Max Reebo. The Barge for me is my favorite Star Wars vehicle, so seeing it get the UCS treatment is sublime.
  14. Was already sold on the Sith Infiltrator but now that Saw is not Granny Smith green, it’s a must buy.
  15. I personally actually like the Sith Infiltrator. While it’s a bit smaller than the last one and of course proportions are gonna be a bit affected by it, the detailing is there. I think it’s leagues better than all of them except the last one. But the last one was $90 USD back in 2015 which is like $120 now so it’s like near double the price of this bad boy. So I think given the big price discrepancy, the new one is a good deal imo. Same argument for the minifig debate, there’s four minifigs in the 2015 one and there’s three in this one (considering Saw is a bonus), so for a $50 drop off it’s not bad and in range with The Night Buzzard (cool name). Biggest problem for me is the eyes of Maul. So in totality I think the set is fine, I just don’t like Legos approach to these anniversaries where you only get like one system scale set for them and the rest are just dioramas and brickheads which I have no interest in. I think if there were more TPM system scale sets where Padme and Panaka could show up like a Flash Speeder or a Gungan Sub which also add more color to all these grey sets, people wouldn’t be complaining about it. I think they could of done a couple more TPM sets instead of a Dark Millennium Falcon or Jedi Bob’s Starfighter.
