  1. None of the novels before A New Dawn are now considered canon (with the exception of film novelizations themselves, where they don't directly contradict the films).

    REVIEW: 21324 LEGO 123 Sesame Street

    I grew up on Sesame Street in the late 80s/early 90s, so this set brings back a TON of nostalgia for me. A definite purchase!

    Crossing my fingers that LEGO sells this as well. Might as well throw my changes out the window if it's Amazon-only.

    Oh, I love it!! The build turned out beautiful. Too bad about no Grover or Count minifigs, but I'm amazed at the number of new molds we are getting here.
  5. So...did Mos Eisley Cantina ever become available for non-VIPs today? Just checked and it’s still OOS.
  6. Yeah, it’s the same style packaging that the 2x4 Red Brick GWP set came in a while back. Not sure why the change though.

    [REVIEW] 75290 Mos Eisley Cantina

    If this is the case with mine, I’ll be contacting Lego for a replacement sticker sheet.

    [REVIEW] 75290 Mos Eisley Cantina

    The cantina's actually shown as out of stock in the U.S. for a few hours now. Can't believe the GWP went so quickly!
  9. I got extremely lucky....managed to get an order in (including the GWP) just after 9:00 am EST this morning. I'm in the Mountain Time zone, and woke up just as it went live. Rolled over, picked up my phone and ordered, then rolled back over and went back to sleep. Seems LEGO really messed up with the Yoda's Lightsaber promotion. I don't think I've ever seen a GWP sell out this fast.

    Fantastic review! I'm looking forward to adding this to my collection. Not much longer now!

    Since you basically just listed off all the new minifigs in the set (which could easily set you back $100+), it’s undoubtedly better just to get the set IMO.

    At this point it’s really just Big Bird, Oscar, and Grover left of the “classic” main characters! I have a really hard time believing Lego would leave any of those out....
  13. Wow...can’t believe this thread has devolved into a debate about the merits of the cantina scene. It’s an iconic location in the franchise. Period. What more justification is needed?
  14. I'm 100% in agreement here. The only alternative to creating an ultimate Cloud City playset would be releasing a series of interconnected vignettes as individual sets....but even then, I'm not convinced the end result could have been much better.
  15. Bingo. LEGO is savvy enough to know that a set like this needs appeal to "all four quadrants", so to speak. For a high-ticket item like this to find wide success, it needs to have equal appeal to AFOLs, kids, and the Star Wars fan who's never purchased a LEGO set in their life. But alas....our community will manage to find ways to complain about everything, even an absolutely GORGEOUS set like this.
