  1. Idk about countries but in the US online store, the Endor GWP is going to be sold on the website. Don't know if this is a mistake or not...

    Well if it did it doesn't anymore. LEGO won't be doing things like Halo for multiple reasons such as violence and licensing. You can check out megablocks though.
  3. There weren't any. Only double VIP points. But if you bought it from a LEGO store the employees might have given you the droid commander GWP if you ask nicely.

    Should LEGO Star Wars take a break?

    Well, I doubt LEGO will take a "break" or slow down on product output in the next couple of years due to the number of SW shows coming out next year. But let's say there was a period of no new content from SW. LEGO is not going to stop putting out sets (look at the period between ep. 3 and ep. 7) since SW brings in a great amount of profit, but most likely they will not push as hard as LEGO has been throughout the few years. And possibly LEGO might feel encouraged to make some "unconventional" sets rather than repeats. Also, as @Digger of Bricks said, LEGO might make a space theme to spice it up. But whatever the case, whether there are no movies or shows or nothing SW content coming out, I highly doubt LEGO will take a break from making sets, but instead will slightly decrease there output, as there will always be a market for it.
  5. Well, I sort of did that, except I got the parts book by book rather than all 15k at once. Much easier to find pieces and easier to organize (better to organize 1k-2k pieces instead of 15k :P). If you're wondering how I sourced the parts book by book, @rockpig made an amazing excel spreadsheet that has all the parts you need for each book! You can find the file either somewhere on this thread or on rebrickable. Good luck!
  6. Ah, I see. Never noticed that haha and you and @Kristofare definitely right about the inconsistency within the films. I thought they replaced the ISD model completely when filming V & VI. Still think the "feature" of raising and lowering the sensor array to be silly though. Idk if someone already asked this, but does anyone know if there are new parts with this set? The designer has said he used as many pre-existing parts to build this, but not sure if all of it was made from old pieces.
  7. That is actually an incorrect "feature" of the UCS set. If you wanted to change it to the ISD MKII you need to change the turret designs (to quad turrets) and do a couple of adjustments on the bridge and superstructure details. Super nitpicky I know. From the designer video, I think he didn't know there were two versions of the ISD and got confused when he looked at a model from episode V or VI.
  8. Got another update from my local LEGO store that they now have 24 ISD's in stock for its release. Also, they said they won't be having the wheels for it :( Looks like LEGO is really prepared for a sell like the Falcon.

    [WIP] Sith Star Destroyer

    Wow that is starting to look fantastic! Just wondering, since the sensor array is that of the MK I shouldn't the turrets be like the ones on the new UCS ISD? Can't really tell from the trailer which is used. But great work anyways!
  10. Not my store, but my local LEGO store (lazy wording lol). Well, when the MF first came out they only had 6 of them for release. So I think this is a clear indication that LEGO is definitely prepared for a huge rush like the MF.
  11. Actually, my store got 12 of them the past week and they said they are expecting a little more in their second shipment before the official release.
  12. Dang, I thought the MF would last like the Death Star. The chance for me getting it has now increased...
  13. Soooo randomly putting this out there, I found out that my LEGO store got there usual shipment from the factory the other day and they said that they already got 12 of the UCS ISD's pre-stocked. They also said they think that they'll probably get another shipment of them to fully prepare for the release. I'm guessing LEGO is expecting the set to sell out pretty fast and unlike the MF release they'll have the set in stock for a little longer haha...
  14. I really don't get the people who complain about desirable and exclusive minifigures in expensive sets. Exclusive figures should be in expensive or special sets to enhance a set. And I always thought that LEGO always does great (except Marvel) with figures in their sets (the amount and quality is just good enough). Now with the UCS ISD I feel like should have come with a couple more like an extra crewman and another officer since the price is so high.
  15. Exactly. It's pretty obvious that the ISD MOC's will always be better than LEGO sets but there is one difference between the two. Budget. With MOC's you have the piece budget of whatever you want and need whereas the set has a definitive limit on how much parts can be used and at an "affordable" price. I mean I'm still going to pick this up even though I've built the Aggressor and will eventually build the Monarch.
