  1. Is there any news yet on whether or not there are any retailer exclusives for this year? Sets that are along the lines of the Hoth Medical Chamber from last year for example.
  2. Rumour on Instagram has it that the May 4th polybag will be a 20th Anniversary-related minifigure. Just hope it's something worthwhile.
  3. Is there any indication yet as to what 75246 will be? Its piece count (159) seems quite low - lower in fact than the vignette in the Rey vs Kylo set. Could it be a Juniors set, or perhaps just a small vehicle-based set such as Luke's Landspeeder?
  4. An Instagram post has just been created with alleged leaked box art for the Tantive IV. It looks fake.
  5. I am certainly expecting there to be, if it is indeed coming as the 2HY UCS.
  6. The leaker 'childish_landino_chronicles' on Instagram is reporting a Rebel Fleet Trooper and Chewbacca to be in this year's advent calendar in addition to the Santa Porg, Jedi Exile Luke, Cloud Car Pilot and First Order Stormtrooper reported earlier.
  7. On the subject of the rumoured Kylo's shuttle in the Force Friday III wave, Making Star Wars apparently have new information that Kylo has a new ship for Episode IX that is white with black and red markings. This could potentially be his shuttle, and therefore why we may be getting another one for this film as it could be a new ship design altogether and play a prominent role in the film. Naturally, this should be taken with a pinch of salt at this moment in time, but it could of course be important information going forward with regards to the rumoured Kylo's shuttle set. It could substantiate it to some degree. Source: https://www.instagram.com/p/BuOu2iPgLMa/
  8. I think it is important to remember that the sequels do somewhat rely on playing on nostalgia through new variations of classic designs (ie TIEs, X-Wings, A-Wings, Mon Calamari cruisers, Nebulon frigates), as well as the actual position of the Resistance as of the end of The Last Jedi. The idea of them being reduced to using clapped-out old Y-Wings, or perhaps a successor of sorts to the BTL-A4 model from the OT (although, canonically, this was arguably the B-Wing), doesn't surprise me at all really considering what a desperate situation they're in. It's been made pretty clear that they're essentially guerrilla fighters at the time Episode IX will kick off. These factors combined lead me to put some faith in the leaks.
  9. Exact same piece count as 75104 was - possible that this one could be Kylo's Shuttle if the rumour is true, and 75257 could therefore be the Falcon if, as in the past, the size/price of the sets rise with the set numbers.
  10. Based on something being reported by Yakface.com about Episode IX code names, the rumoured 'Bruges' battle pack for the winter could in fact be for Episode IX rather than be Mimban-themed. They have published an article which details London, Oslo, Bruges, Limerick and Boston as Episode IX codenames across merchandise, whereas Huckleberry is the only one that seems concrete for The Mandalorian. This is of course working on the assumption that there is some legitimacy in that leaked list.
  11. It would only require the recycling of the Imperial Navy Officer from 75159. Even though he is a stormtrooper officer.
  12. In addition to that, the new leak lists 75244 as a First Order Dropship and 75247 as a Resistance Y-Wing, yet they already have set allocations, in fact one has been retailing since the start of January. That would suggest that either the set numbers are confused, or they're illegitimate.
  13. Interesting that there doesn't appear to be (m)any Episode IX sets in this leaked wave, at least on the surface. In the wave that followed Force Friday II, there was two Episode VIII themed microfighters, two microfighter dual packs, two battle packs and a small playset and two larger playsets. I would have expected Episode IX to still be getting a push with the merchandise with the wave scheduled for release in such proximity to that of the film.
  14. Quite like the sound of Obi Wan's homestead, always wondered when we would eventually get it in an official set. The brick built microfighter set with the Bantha also sounds promising. Imagine it will go nicely with the Dewback. Holding out hope that the battle packs will also be good.
  15. First Episode IX leak to surface is that we will be getting a new Falcon. It is rumoured to include an old Lando.
  16. I probably worded my previous comment a bit poorly - what I meant was, if the rumour is the truth, then that suggests 75255 is one of the two October wave sets previously confirmed to be not related to Episode IX. Apologies.
  17. The post suggests it is set number 75255. The poster is the same one who revealed Santa Porg and Jedi Exile Luke for the advent calendar, and the account has a previous history of leaking accurately. If it is true, could it be one of the two October wave sets that were declared to be not related to Episode IX?
  18. Leia looks very nice. Another new two-sided face on a Rebel Fleet Trooper would be a great follow up if it's definitely Tantive IV.
  19. Not particularly sold on the Endor set. Will need to see some clearer images of the speeder bike to decide if the set would be worth buying multiples of.

    Future Star Wars Sets

    Thanks for the positive feedback. Enjoyed reading some of your ideas too.
  21. Any chance that they are the Resistance Lifeboat and V-19 confirmed a while ago by Sir von Lego?
  22. In theory, that must firmly rule out it being re-release.

    Thank you. Appreciate it. Here are a few prequels/TCW set ideas. I am a lot more interested in the separatist and republic conflict than some of the Jedi/political aspects.

    As above, just a wish list. I like to try and assign set numbers to try and fit them into potential allocations.
