  1. These are so much better than I expected. Gorgeous, even. And all the variations - genius move by Lego. Probably couldn't afford them though, so that's me out unfortunately. Maybe one day...
  2. I just saw someone on Reddit has managed to pick up both the AAT and 501st already. Hopefully other stores accidentally put those out early. I can't wait to have them both!
  3. Lot of good points being floated here. Personally, I like the variety of different sets, although I agree some are strange choices. As for the sets themselves... I think the AAT and 501st pack will be the first ones I pick up. They compliment each other well, and that Ahsoka The new clone design isn't my favourite but if this is the design they're sticking with, it'll do. The only clones I have atm are from the 2008 CW sets after all. I picked up the 2014 Anakin's interceptor along with Obi-Wan's for about £15 a year or two ago, so that's a pass. At this higher price point I wouldn't buy it anyway, but I think it's a good set to have on shelves. I like the left field choice of the Galaxy's edge set. Is it the ship you board for the Resistance ride? Or is it just something that's part of the scenery? Hopefully this paves the way for more non-movie/TV sets in future. Grievous' starfighter has been discussed loads already. It's overpriced. I have nothing to add. The Night Buzzard is a cool design. I'm still unsure how I feel about the Knights and their general irrelevance during the ST. I may pick it up at a later date if I don't sell the two Knights I have beforehand. It would look good next to Kylo's shuttle... I started collecting again in 2015/16, so I don't have an AT-AT. That's another one I'm considering. A classic, that I think definitely deserves a space, despite there being several iterations prior to now. Getting that will depend on how my wallets doing after buying the Razor Crest though. Love the figures in that set especially. The only set I don't appreciate on some level is the Throne Room. It just baffles me, considering proximity to TRoS that this is the Palpatine duel they chose, over Exogol. Still, as I said, I appreciate that this wave caters to (nearly) all fans in some way, even if its not the exact sets some people wanted. They'll come around eventually, no doubt.

    Marvel Superheroes 2020 - Rumors & Discussion

    I really love that MODOK. Might try and grab it loose eventually. It's just so much better proportioned than the previous version IMO and a lot more comic accurate. As for the helicarrier build, I never expected much and I understand the everyone's frustration, but it does look like something I'd have a blast playing with if I were still a kid.

    Marvel Superheroes 2020 - Rumors & Discussion

    It's been posted (/copied) onto the main hashtag now. I think it looks great! Can't wait to see the rest of the new designs.
  6. I saw the new Rey on eBay (UK) the other day. Unfortunately the seller listing it is someone who, while they often have the newest figures, charge quite a high price for them. Almost twenty quid for Rey? No thank you.
  7. I managed to get a good deal on the TFA one (from someone who worked on the movie, no less!) but seeing that Falcon kind of makes me wish I'd held out for this one. The proportions of the mandibles and lack of gaps really make a difference (although in an ideal world, I would just get the UCS)
  8. I kind of get their reasoning. It's just a shame such a central character has so few variants outside her Tattooine garb. I was quite keen on getting the Mustafar set due to her rumoured inclusion. Now, less so. Those battle packs still have my attention though!
  9. I already have Poe's Black X-Wing from TFA but a line-up like that would be enough to get me to buy another (at a discount, at least). Shame about the seeming lack of Padme in the duel set also. Is it too much to ask to have a non-TPM variant of her that isn't battle damaged or with those CW cartoon eyes (ie a regular adult Padme)?
  10. A good iteration of Kylo's shuttle is all I really wanted from this wave, and I'm so glad with how both the build and the mini figures have turned out. The rest of the wave is pretty decent too. The Falcon in particular catches my eye because I used to toy with my TFA variant in the hopes I'd get the cockpit at the right angle and close up the gaps. I finally managed it - then dropped it and haven't rebuilt it since (I never made any notes of the modificiations I made). It'll be interesting the read the instructions and check out the changes between the two (unless I miraculously come into the money to buy the new one).
  11. That looks excellent, thanks for the pictures. So far all I've done is messed around with the back fins (?) to make them longer like they are in the films. I'll have to study yours and see if I can capture that bulkier look you've achieved. I agree about the Quinjet (it's the only one I can comment on currently). That trike is a bit superfluous. Mine's been loaded into the back and will probably never make an appearance again. As for the Quantum/Tech Suits, that made buying the set without the minifigs a very easy decision.
  12. Could do! The War Machine Buster does pique my interest. And the majority of feedback for that set on here has been pretty positive. Also, that figure does look pretty sweet!
  13. Managed to pick up the Quinjet half-price (without figures) on eBay the other day. Great set, really love the way it's come together. Only problem is I planned to display it alongside the Benatar, but it's so big it makes the Guardians ship look less impressive in comparison
  14. Have to say these Far From Home sets are a lovely surprise. At the moment, my focus is still on the Quinjet, but I may have to pick up that Hydro-Man set too! The Peter Parker fig is probably my favourite figure to come out of the superhero line in quite some time. Mysterio being in the cheapest set is also a bonus. Like others have said, I'll probably just Bricklink Fury. And in regards to Peter's other classmates, I would have preferred them to the firefighter but maybe if the Hydro-Man set sells well we'll be treated to more characters like Ned and Flash whenever the Spider-Man 3 sets come around.
  15. I also can't wait, but there's a part of me that feels like the film (and thus the Lego sets) may be somewhat lacking in the new ships department (although it sounds like there'll be a ton of new characters to translate into minifig form). I don't know if you've ever read The Art of the Force Awakens, but it starts off with all these wonderful new designs, and after J.J. Abrams comes aboard everything starts to look more and more like the Original Trilogy. So personally alongside that supposed new Falcon I imagine we'll be getting at least one new X-Wing and maybe even another TIE too. Still, if they're good enough improvements, I won't mind. I only have Poe's X-Wing, the Millennium Falcon and Luke's hut from the ST sets.
