    Post your general LEGO Star Wars questions here

    Hello. I am sure this has likely been asked before, so my apologies for bringing it up again. But I was just wondering if someone can enlighten me on the likelihood of a UCS Sandcrawler from Episode IV? I am contemplating buying the 75059 Sandcrawler (which I assume is the best so far). If lads think its very likely,...a UCS Sandcrawler will be in the offing in the short/medium term,....Ill hold off. Once again, my apologies if this has come up before. Thanks.

    REVIEW | 75252 Imperial Star Destroyer

    Fabulous review and I do appreciate the effort in getting this review to the site. The build and the display qualities are whats in it for me. Not that I needed any more encouragement,.....VBBN has reinforced to me that this set is defo one I will get for my collection. It will look spectacular,...more so than the UCS Falcon I reckon,.....and I always doubted that would be beaten.

    Yep,...….completely agree.

    [PRESS RELEASE] 75252 Imperial Star Destroyer

    Its an interesting point,...and in principle I agree. The thing is the Star Wars Star Destroyers surface, were always irregular and rough. Lumps, bumps and panel lines show a surface with a heap of detail. For the scale,...Lego had no hope of replicating that. So I do get leaving the surface predominately with studs. Its a display piece,....so from a distance I am guessing it looks quite realistic. You could cover it with stickers,...….but people would complain it would be too flat and too 2 dimension like. But,..at the end of the day,...like many models (plastic, Diecast, Lego), the finish is in the eye of the beholder and its quite subjective. There really is no right or wrong answer.

    MOC - USS Gerald Ford (40,000 peices).

    No one thought this extraordinary MOC wasn't worth commenting on?? Has it been on the forum before? The video is quite recent so...…?

    [PRESS RELEASE] 75252 Imperial Star Destroyer

    Fab release and I will be getting this for sure. Just love the bigger sets. I think I have room for it.....?? As said above,...its a display piece, so I am fine with the lack of minifigs,....which are not to scale anyway. I guess a heap of internal stuff could have been done utilising the tiny minifigs like Hogwarts,...that way you could have hangers with tie-fighters, engine room etc etc. But then,...how much would it cost and can the frame support the beast with all the internal stuff?? I am guessing, probably not. Excellent release, in my view.
  8. Fabulous and my type of huuuuuge build!!

    The Future of Lego Space. (opinions, ideas, discussion)

    Yeah,..like that. Would love to see a huge Moonbase, with buildings and launch pads. Oh well,...hope springs eternal.
  10. Thanks for the answer. The listings were by retailer on Aussie Ebay, utilising the LEGO brand. https://www.ebay.com.au/itm/pending-24/163659200239?_trkparms=aid%3D111001%26algo%3DREC.SEED%26ao%3D1%26asc%3D20160908105057%26meid%3D7574d475c75e4dc19edc9faf65910226%26pid%3D100675%26rk%3D4%26rkt%3D15%26sd%3D283468956602%26itm%3D163659200239&_trksid=p2481888.c100675.m4236&_trkparms=pageci%3Ab3cda202-751d-11e9-ad8e-74dbd1804a34|parentrq%3Aaec9879216a0ac1cc237ffa9ffd7c6bf|iid%3A1

    The Future of Lego Space. (opinions, ideas, discussion)

    Indeed,...thanks for the reply. I guess I had it in my head the theme would be on MARS,...like the old Classic Space theme (presumably the Moon).

    The Future of Lego Space. (opinions, ideas, discussion)

    I guess I am just a little confused? Is this is supposed to be part of a Mars base?? Some figures have helmets,...one building is enclosed and there seems to be a bit sampling. But on the other hand one building is open and some figures are dressed up,.....non-space fashion?? Is this new City theme on Mars?? I mean the theme is called LEGO City Mars Exploration sets??

    The Future of Lego Space. (opinions, ideas, discussion)

    Is it just me or does anyone else thing the repair servicing centre should be enclosed?? Love the rocket and launcher!!
  14. Interesting comments from the lads. Certainly room is an issue,...not just for the models, but also for the boxes they come in. I guess I am lucky,...as I have a mancave (although its mainly devoted to another Hobby). So I do have space,...not infinite, but certainly some space. I guess once that is filled Ill have the same view as many here regarding big sets. On another note, I have noted in Aussie Ebay that there is a set (unknown theme) for pre-order retailing at $1000AUD and another Star Wars set for also $1000 AUD. Neither detail what the set is,...or how many pieces. In Australia Ninjago City retails for around $500-$800 one can only surmise this will be a big set,....even taking into account the increase mark up for a new release. Both sets have more than one seller. Any guesses/info on what they may be??

    [REVIEW] 10264 - Corner Garage

    Terrific review JIM and I really appreciate the effort. Being new to the forum and with only two modular sets,....I too am rather surprised with the lack of tiling in the garage ground floor and, for me its a bit of a eyesore and disappointment. Also agree,..the Vet on the second floor is a bit meh! In fact having a vet above a garage seems weird. I do like the components of the set. But together it looks odd and the finish is a bit disappointing. Once again, thanks for the review.
