  1. You can download a free (3.5mb) copy of the poster from the VIP/Insiders page on the LEGO website - it looks far better in that quality!
  2. A gift from my lovely (and incredibly tolerant) wife! I can't wait to build this but I'm not sure if I'll have sufficient space to display it anywhere!
  3. The Razor Crest looks absolutely amazing and it's definitely one for my shopping list. Admittedly the RRP is a little painful but it's not totally ridiculous considering the scale and part count. The interior looks well done - I particularly like the carbonite chamber and cockpit. I haven't purchased any sets this year apart from the UCS Landspeeder so I could just about convince myself to order it at full RRP, although a decent GWP would certainly help!
  4. 2022 SW Advent Calendar details now listed on the LEGO website (link) It looks like an improvement from last year but I'm not sure about Darth - he looks totally out of place!
  5. Both new sets are on the UK website - Boba's Throne Room is £89.99 & N-1 is £54.99.
  6. I'm not sure why you think they're 'safe and lazy'? Personally I'm really looking forward to a top-end version of Dagobah for the first time in 22-odd years - it could be exceptional! Hopefully LEGO will eventually release some further PT sets at some point but it's pretty evident that there isn't much demand for most Episode I sets in particular, and in light of the near-backlash in regard to the UCS Gunship I can understand any possible reluctance to visit them again in the near future. There's only a limited number of sets they can produce at any one time; they can't please everyone.
  7. 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.
  8. 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...
  9. 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
  10. Addition image of the Carbonite Key Chain - I'm very tempted!
  11. US November Store Calendar (here) - hopefully the Carbonite Key Chain will be available in the UK
  12. 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!
