  1. I'm still buying it regardless, the figures don't matter to me at all. It's just that during the scene with the clone commander, the coloring looks like yellow. It looks identical to the 2013 figure. Maybe it's lighting, maybe it's something else, but that's how it looks to me. I don't want to sound like I'm complaining, I'll take a new color clone any day of the week, it just seems odd. Edit: Nevermind. There is one in the command center that's pure yellow, but Ponds actually does seem to have orange-ish coloring. I just completely missed him.
  2. I've just rewatched AotC and I have no idea why they went with orange for the clone commander. The 2013 one was a perfect representation.
  3. Like I said, I looked at images of both armors. I really couldn't tell much of a difference, certainly not enough of one to justify two different torsos. Maybe I'm missing something obvious because I'm tired, but I really do not see much difference.
  4. I was thinking about the Clone Commander having the animated torso, and the more I think about it, the better of a choice I think it is. I would rather all clones have one torso design so that they match and no clone looks out of place. I know there are differences between phase 1 and 2 armor, but just looking at them, I don't know if the differences are enough to justify two different torsos.
  5. If LEGO hates prequel UCS sets, it's because they don't sell. Lego is a company, they make things that make them money. The other two prequel UCS sets aren't exactly highly regarded (though, to be fair, they're not the best models for UCS) and from what I understand, 10215 was a poor seller. For me anyway, the Gunship will probably be a day one purchase. I love it, it's my second or third favorite prequel vehicle and it looks fantastic.
  6. Oh, don't get me wrong, I definitely believe the rumors, it just feels kinda weird. But maybe that's just because I kinda don't want it to be true, my wallet is going to be hurting real bad by the end of the year.
  7. What was the original source for the $800 UCS set/AT-AT and when was the last time we had any info about it? I'm not doubting it, but it still feels really odd that we're getting this many UCS sets in a year.
  8. Of the 10 normal (not microfighter, not helmet, not UCS) sets this year, 3 are Clone Wars or Bad Batch. Nearly 1/3rd of the sets this year for prequel shows is pretty good. But I suppose if you strictly mean prequel movies and ignore all other media, yes, there's only one.
  9. To be honest, I don't think there's any point arguing with him. You'll never get anywhere, there's no real logic behind anything he actually says. He claims Lego hates making prequel sets while they're releasing several this year. He completely made up the statistic that 90% of people voted for the Gunship and then when it was said that 58% did, acted like a 32% difference isn't a big deal. He keeps saying that Cody not being in the Gunship is Lego attacking prequel fans, without any statistic on the actual figure vote. And I'm sure there's so much more I'm forgetting. It's probably best to just ignore him.
  10. Multiple people have been saying that the Gunship would not be minifig scale for several months now because it's so obvious, and yet people are still complaining about it. The last version was nearly minifig scale, something nearly 3x the price is going to be a whole lot bigger. I just find this whole thing absurd. People wanted a Gunship and now there's people that likely voted for it saying they won't get it because the clone torso is the animated style or it doesn't come with a Pilot (figured aren't the main reason to get a UCS set, obviously) or they didn't get XYZ or whatever other reason. It almost makes hope this set sells poorly so we don't get any more PT sets because clearly "Lego can't do anything right" and people would complain again.
  11. So, my 75021 is fairly yellowed and I'm planning to scrap it for parts with the UCS version coming out. What Star Wars ships work better with yellowed parts, if any?
  12. I love the Gunship. I don't care about the figures, this massively oversized so the figures wouldn't look right inside of it. The ones that do come with it are (minus Yoda) probably the most notable characters that it transported. And if they did add Cody or a Pilot or any other desirable character, people would be whining about how they have to spend $350 to get it. It looks beautiful and I love how massive it is. Maybe not a day 1, but I'm definitely getting it
  13. Oh dang, I didn't realize the Malevolence was that big. I knew it was sizable, but I didn't think it was nearly 3 times the size of an ISD.
  14. I've got a few other suggestions: Imperial Arrestor Cruiser Providence-class dreadnought (preferably the Invisible Hand/1km) length Munificent-class frigate Recusant cruiser Malevolence
  15. I'm one of your followers on Rebrickable and I love all of these. I'm currently working on Jorstad's Victory, but after that's done I'm going to start on either your Quasar or Arquitens. As for suggestions, what about an Acclamator? I've never seen a 1:1455 scale one and you could do an Imp color scheme. Also maybe the Dreadnought heavy cruiser
  16. I'd heard about using peroxide to unyellow bricks. Is there a way to stop them from yellowing in the first place or is just an inevitability?
  17. I'm considering Bricklinking 10212. I've already got 75094 and most of the more expensive parts (except the stickers :( ). Would you all recommend it? I've always liked 10212, but it really looks kind of dated now. I'm also concerned about long-term yellowing. Is there any way to prevent it?
  18. You can send an email with your order number and ask for it to be cancelled
  19. Oh, the PPP ratio is certainly very good for Star Wars. It's just more about the size. It's barely bigger than the one from BoCC and I thought that maybe looked like a $25 set
  20. Good gracious this argument is absurd. Anyway, not very big on the sets. The Trexler looks awful, the Slave is good but doesn't look like a $60 set and I don't need it anyway. The Arquitens is okay, I guess, but I don't like play-scale capital ships so that's a pass. This is really shaping up to be a cheap year.
  21. I think it's honestly hilarious that last year people were complaining that Beskar Mando wasn't in the Razor Crest and AT-ST and now they're complaining that Beskar Mando is in too many sets. Oh, how awful it is that the main character from an incredibly popular show is in several sets, how awful indeed. Whatever shall we do
  22. Not the worst set ever, but certainly not great. Open it looks okay, I guess, but closed it looks pretty bad with all the white showing. And $70 is a bit much for it, it looks like a $50 set
  23. I guess I'm the only person that actually likes the Taj Mahal? I really like the actual building, but not $300+ worth. This looks really nice. Also, I really hate the skylines and would just prefer more of the landmark style sets. The Architect stuff is cool, I guess, but I'd never heard of Fallingwater, Tobie House or the Imperial Hotel before the sets.

    I wonder if it might be a small style UCS set, like the SW helmets and statues. I haven't kept up, so maybe it's already been confirmed that it's not
