  1. I appreciate you're just speculating, but I'd definitely restrain your expectations.
  2. They're all summer sets. 75284 is the Night Buzzard, 75286 is Soulless One, 75288 is the AT-AT.
  3. 75284 will be the Night Buzzard.
  4. I think there is a difference between drip-feeding new information and making unfounded assumptions, no matter how confident one might feel in their gut instinct. Those in the know or with access to certain materials shouldn't feel forced to cite their sources when asked, or as has often been the case, pretty much bullied into, because ultimately, people with such information aren't under any obligation to share it in the first place. Wait and see for yourself is the simple alternative. It's up to each member to choose to believe them. However, when an opinion is expressed, as yours has been, with quite a great deal of confidence, it shouldn't necessarily be afforded those same privileges for fairly understandable reasons. I think by this point in time there is a general acceptance on the forum that this practice does nothing to benefit forum members long term and just drives away individuals who would be able to offer the forum a lot.
  5. Don't believe me if you don't want to.
  6. Consider the AT-AT confirmed.
  7. Good wave for those of us who grew up alongside the prequels and The Clone Wars; pretty rough wave for some of the old hands.
  8. From sources. I've also seen an ever so slightly higher quality image in which you can make out a blue lightsaber with one (Obi Wan), a particularly bulky figure (Grievous) and orange markings on the clone.
  9. It's not 75274, put it that way. My money is on the clone being Cody but I don't have any further confirmation on that.
  10. It's legitimate. You can see Utapau in the background which means it's themed around Revenge of the Sith rather than The Clone Wars. Minifigures are General Grievous, Obi Wan and a clone.
  11. It could mean one of a number of things. I'm being intentionally cryptic about it but it could probably be narrowed down to one of two or three possibilities. What do you think?
  12. I am not aware of a Ghost remake coming in 2020. I would like to think that the Ghost would be rereleased at some point but personally can't see it happening for a good while yet.
  13. Of course. I would characterise a good wave through it having contemporary, relevant sets at the time of it hitting retail and potential opportunities for good sets not being filled up with the likes of 4+ and Action Battle sets.
  14. A handful of vague codenames have been uncovered. Last time I alluded to being privy to some knowledge, I was all but summarily executed by other forum members so I shall not divulge further with regards to price points, piece counts and the likely corresponding set content as a point of principle. What I will say is that the few sets I have been made aware of through a trusted source seem more positive than negative. Expect more information through the usual channels in due course.
  15. I'm surprised nobody here picked up on it, but it was confirmed here:
  16. It's not speculation. She is coming in a set soon.
  17. Jannah is included in another set.
  18. Without wanting to escalate things and swiftly nip it in the bud here, I have to say, I think your attitude leaves a lot to be desired. Your apparent sense of entitlement to be privy to the knowledge of others is quite palpable in all honesty. A shame really, because I get the impression jdubbs knows the score and understands the content of my initial post. If you look back through all my posts on this forum, you will not once see a bad word said about any other member or any indirect attacks at another poster, just attempts to make meaningful contributions and speculate as to what we may have to look forward to as a community. I think I'll stop visiting this forum as much as I do and cease my contributions until the toxicity here runs its course. I'll just leave you, in particular, with the following from George Orwell's 1984: 'ignorance is strength'. Not to worry, though. Give you enough rope and you'll soon hang yourself, as they say in my part of the world. Until next time.
  19. Nail on the head. As was said before, don't bite the hand that feeds you. I was simply alluding to the fact that something of interest would likely be out there in the near future. Who, or rather, what it is, I couldn't tell you. I may refrain from doing so again should I find myself in a similar position.
  20. I have seen an image of another TROS character - it does not seem she has leaked yet but I imagine she will be on her way in the next day or two - she looks excellent.
  21. The jet trooper just about confirms that the speeder set is the chase we briefly see in the Episode IX teaser, which would suggest it's also likely a set that will include Poe and Finn. Is it possible that the AT-ST set in this coming wave will be from The Mandalorian? The two Mandalorian torso leaks so far seem to suggest that we are at least getting one set in the October wave (it would seem awfully early to get leaks of pieces as many as 4-5 months in advance of their anticipated release, if we worked on the assumption that they are in the Mandalorian battle pack due in the January 2020 wave) and now that the speeder set is more or less confirmed to be Episode IX, a Mandalorian set in the Force Friday III wave can realistically only be 75246 (the turret) or the scout walker. That is, unless, there is an additional set somewhere along the line between now and January. https://yakfaceforums.com/main/2019/07/24/rumor-report-a-new-old-imperial-walker-in-the-mandalorian/
  22. Umpass-stay, the drummer in Max Rebo's band.
  23. Regarding the '16+' designated to 75276 and 75277, it would be logical to assume that these would be Jedi: Fallen Order-related considering the previous age restrictions of 16 placed on Battlefront and Battlefront II. The Stinger Mantis would be an obvious choice for one set of their piece count range (600-650 pieces).
