  1. 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.
  2. 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.

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

    Future Star Wars Sets

    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. Personally, I've written off the likes of the Nubian Royal Starship as happening any time soon, but nonetheless here are a few things I'd be pretty happy with.

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

  9. Perhaps the absence of a Last Jedi Leia minifigure may have something to do with this potentially being the Raddus. I seem to recall a rumour from last which suggested she was coming in a lifeboat, which SvL confirmed, although that appears to have been put on hold. I suppose it could be argued that, while the codenames in some cases haven't meant much (ie the Solo set codenames), the ship does have the physical outline of a shark. While I am no expert on building techniques, I reckon the Raddus' shape would be easier to recreate in LEGO than the Home One for example, which has less angles which could be manipulated through traditional building techniques. Perhaps an iteration of the Raddus would be a lot like the Malevolence from 2012 in terms of building techniques. The described box dimensions and price point arguably suggest some sort of compatibility with a vehicle the size of the First Order Star Destroyer, and after all, fans have been wishing for a proper attempt Mon Calamari cruiser for a number of years.
  10. I feel that the disappointment surrounding this wave of sets may subside when we learn more about the UCS sets and if they will be compensate for this wave.
  11. £119.99. Same as Vader's Castle.
  12. Stormtrooper Han is an interesting leak. Doesn't fit in with any of the April sets we know of so far. Therefore it must be 75260, a polybag or an exclusive set we don't know anything about yet.
  13. That's 75238, "Action Attack Endor" or something to that effect.
  14. If it were indeed to be, it would be a perfect opportunity to remake 7128 or 7139.
  15. mini_legogo's Instagram story suggests we are getting some more Resistance leaks in the next ten minutes.
  16. Not yet known. Chances are, if 75259 is to be true to its roots with 7130, it will come with two pilots and a Hoth rebel trooper, and then Lando is the rumoured anniversary figure. I recall SVL mentioned a while ago that 75241 would come with three rebels and a snowtrooper, so that is one accounted for there. More than likely that one will also feature in 75239.
  17. I think it makes sense. I seem to recall that the August 2018 wave were revealed around April/May time, and a good number of figures had leaked by that point, so perhaps they are revealing a few months in advance here as well given the volume of leaks that have been occurring recently.
  18. Just to clarify, do we know yet for sure if we are expecting a 75260 at Easter, and if we are, is it in with the rest of the 20th Anniversary sets? Just seems a bit odd for it to be missed out.
  19. On a separate note, if we know Force Friday is taking place the first week of October this year, and on the basis that it is therefore logical to assume that this will be when the first phase of Episode IX sets are released, do we have any knowledge yet if we are expecting a 'summer wave' at some point between the upcoming April wave, May 4th and Force Friday in October?
  20. I see the same attitude with Hasbro collectors, particularly with the Black Series and Vintage Collection lines.
  21. I was personally expecting a modern iteration of each. Particularly given the piece counts of the five 20th Anniversary sets, and the long overdue Endor Luke and Biker Scout helmet mould update, without wishing to appear purely speculative, I wouldn't be at all surprised if one of those sets was something of a re-release of 7128 from 1999.
  22. What a way to reclaim that market.
  23. Picked up 75251 Vader's Castle, 75204 Sandspeeder and an additional Imperial Patrol battle pack before it is retired on S@H.

    Future Star Wars Sets

    Given the, on the whole, positive response to 75229, I wonder if Lego could pursue further renditions of iconic scenes from the Death Star. Three that immediately spring to mind would be the conference scene, the overbridge and the detention centre shootout. The conference could include Vader, Tarkin, Admiral Motti and a Death Star Trooper, all of which would be relevant to the set and make them more widely available as minifigures, although in terms of potential play features for a conference scene set I am not too sure. The overbridge could include Leia, Vader, Tarkin and Chief Bast, and the detention centre shootout could include Han in stormtrooper disguise, Leia, Lieutenant Childsen and/or a Stormtrooper. Just a few ideas I thought were worth putting out there, I think creating small playsets of iconic scenes such as those would be quite good and allow children who are perhaps priced out of 75159 to replicate some Death Star scenes in the form of much smaller and more affordable playsets.

    Future Star Wars Minifigs

    Have also been quite surprised at the lack of a Last Jedi Leia. In spite of some other areas of the film that weren't too good, I really loved Leia's story in the film and thought it was a good way for her to go out. In terms of the sets that could include her, I am thinking either the Raddus in the form of a large ship or small playset in some way such as the dorsal bridge or the ventral bridge's briefing chamber, or the lifeboat. The Raddus-themed set would hopefully be her costume from the first act. I think in either form of set, it would be a good opportunity to also include Commander D'Acy. Was also very fond of her in the film. The lifeboat would only really make sense to include her Crait outfit.
