  1. That's a rather ridiculous statement and doesn't display a great deal of maturity - I'm not sure that comments like 'minifigures suck' help either. I voted for the Nebulon B simply because it would make a truly exceptional UCS set - not because I'd expected it to include a nice chromed C-3PO.
  2. That looks absolutely incredible - definitely one for the shopping list!! If there's a half-decent GWP I might even be tempted to buy it on 1st August; I'll be interested to see what the UK RRP is...
  3. Although primarily a OT fan, I'm eagerly awaiting the first images of the new UCS Gunship. If it's done well it could be an incredible display piece; it does seem a bit odd that they aren't including more minifigures though! I haven't purchased anything for a while as I've got to a point where I'm rapidly running out of space but I might be tempted to buy it as soon as it's available. I've often wondered if the result of the poll would have been different if it had actually been done as a pre-order based on provisional designs (i.e. anyone who'd voted would have committed to purchasing it if that had gained the most votes). There's a lot of older fans in their 40-50s with a decent amount of disposable income (myself included) and I can see why TLG have tended to be a little cautious and focused on what they perceive that market wants. However, I can appreciate that many PT fans are now in their mid 20's and that could become an significant factor in terms of the future sales. Hopefully TLG will release a Nebulon B in the next few years - and everyone will be happy
  4. Addition image of the Carbonite Key Chain - I'm very tempted!
  5. US November Store Calendar (here) - hopefully the Carbonite Key Chain will be available in the UK
  6. I'm inclined to think it's legitimate - the background is very similar to the style used in other LEGO adverts. If so, I'm very impressed and it could be the first SW set I've ordered in quite a while!

    Harry Potter 2020 - Rumors & Discussion

    I'm a bit underwhelmed by the box art...it seems to be totally devoid of anything remotely spooky which is rather odd. The system-scale sets are far more appealing to me - but it's almost inevitable it will still be a best seller!
  8. The Designer Video has just been posted:
  9. That's a classy looking box - I expect the RRP will reflect that! Very impressed though, definitely one for the UCS collection
  10. Official Boxart of the new Mandalorian sets have just been published on the LEGO website:
  11. 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!
  13. 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.
  14. 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.
  15. 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!
