  1. The Designer Video has just been posted:
  2. That's a classy looking box - I expect the RRP will reflect that! Very impressed though, definitely one for the UCS collection
  3. Official Boxart of the new Mandalorian sets have just been published on the LEGO website:
  4. I don't think that's correct Whenever I've purchased a back-ordered item, I've received the promo available at that time (it's always sensible to add something small & in stock as well to ensure they're sent immediately!). I'm holding off until May 4th; I'm not worried if I don't get in until the initial orders are fulfilled and would prefer a nice promo with it (and possibly double VIP points).

    What is your favorite UCS Set of all time?

    If you can't make a positive contribution to Eurobricks, please don't post at all thankyou. Anyway, to get back to the topic, Slave 1 is my favourite, closely followed by the Imperial Shuttle, and the latest Y-Wing and Snowspeeders I haven't built the latest Falcon or Star Destroyer yet so I can't comment on them, but they're on my to-build list this year!
  6. I wouldn't be surprised if they're all released in the next 5 years, but time will tell. I wouldn't mind either of them, but I voted for the Nebulon as i) it hasn't been done before and ii) it could be exceptional in UCS form if given a suitable (£500+) RRP. I get the feeling that the Gunship will win though based on the near-frenzy of some comments; my only concern in terms of fairness is whether a proportion of those voting for it, will actually purchase it when it's available? Perhaps in future LEGO might adopt a different approach; possibly by developing some prototypes, and then allowing a pre-order (with any achieving a certain level or orders being produced); I think the results could be significantly different! I appreciate the TIE is destined to be a distant third, but I hope they'll do a UCS version at some point - it's an interesting design and I'd certainly buy it.
  7. Finally order 75181 UCS Y-Wing at 20% off from shop at home, including 2x VIP points and the Battle of Endor set I've heard rumours it's going to be retired this year so thought it was a good opportunity to add it to my collection.
  8. That's the best news I've heard in a long time!! I haven't purchased anything since the UCS Falcon; if it's stunning I'll order it as soon as it's available, otherwise it can wait until an inevitable 20% discount. I'm not too worried about the relatively low part count; there's bound to be a higher proportion of larger plates than the Falcon; 10030 only had 3,100 so anything around 4,700 should be exceptional!
  9. The new Advent Calendar is a significant improvement on the last couple of years; a decent range of minifigures and builds. An exclusive Santa-themed minifigure would have taken it to another level, that said I'm actually impressed by the Porg!

    42110 - Land Rover Defender

    42110 has been listed on the UK Smyths website (with an image!) - RRP is £159.99 but no release date - 2573 parts.

    Building Mortesv's Nebulon-B Thread

    @Brickandkall - you're welcome, that's absolutely stunning!
  12. Thanks @Azani - I'm surprised that there's another Hoth set in the pipeline, unless it's designed to be compatible with 75203. I just hope it's not another Snowspeeder and trench, but that's almost inevitable! Overall, it looks like another relatively inexpensive year for me; possibly just the two UCS sets. A new system scale Slave 1 could do well, but as I've got 75060 I doubt I'll buy one - unless it has some really nice minifigures
  13. Mixed emotions as far as I'm concerned.... I've been quietly praying for a new UCS Cloud City for the last 7-8 years and it's finally happened; but that box-art is just awful! And, the layout has pretty much ruined what could have been an exceptional set. I really don't understand why it wasn't split into two or three levels, possibly encased within a half-cylinder. Add an external lift as a play-feature, plus a decent landing pad and it would have been in a totally different league! It's such a shame - I had really high expectations as the last few (UCS) sets have been almost flawless..... Despite the above, I'll still buy it

    Harry Potter 2018 - Rumors & Discussion

    LEGO have done a great job with the entire wave and I'm sure they'll be best sellers! The box art for 75953, 75954 & 75955 are all exceptional and, for the first time in a long while, I'm really looking forward to buying some new sets! The mid & dark blue background tones are perfect and the full moon adds a suitably 'spooky' touch. I was tempted to buy a few of the older sets 6 months ago on the aftermarket, but I'm glad I waited! If the rumoured UCS Hogwarts is of a similar quality (albeit hopefully on a far larger scale) I'll be buying it whatever the RRP. My LEGO collection is virtually all Star Wars, but all of these sets are far too good to ignore
  15. Considering the total fiasco of the Falcon's launch (where the limit was 3 in the UK) it's understandable - LEGO don't won't any more bad press/feeling about this sort of thing, so they're ensuring that anyone who'd like to order it isn't left disappointed. Give it a couple of weeks and it will be relaxed to 3-5, so you should be able to buy another if you want to do so.
