    I totally agree on the stud shooters vs. the classic blaster. No stud shooters from me. :) Cheers

    Thanks for the feedback. Yeah, I struggled with action features on some of those. Still trying to think up options to make them more play friendly for the main target market. Cheers

    Future Star Wars Sets

    Hello, So, I have been working on some set ideas for awhile, but the recent posts have inspired me to get posting. Some overlap with previous ideas, great minds think alike? :) I am terrible at proposing pricing, so just ideas here with a bunch of sets for each movie. They may or may not be reasonable with Lego's current pricing scheme and release schedule. Rogue One: A Star Wars Story Eadu Garrison Battle Pack Mini-figs: 2 x Stormtrooper, 1 x Imperial Gunner, 1 x Imperial Scientist. The main build for the set should be part of the weapons turrets seen during the Battle of Eadu. Perhaps a small version of a turbolaser tower with the archway onto the landing platform the Rebels bomb during the encounter. Accessories to include blasters for the Stormtroopers and Gunner. Scarif Garrison Battle Pack Mini-figs: 2 x Stormtrooper, 2 x Shoretrooper. The main build for the set should include two orange cargo containers as in Set #75152 and a master switch computer console with antenna. Accessories to include regular blasters for the Stormtroopers, and double barrel blasters for the Shoretroopers. Rebel Alliance Pathfinders Battle Pack Mini-figs: 3 x Rebel Pathfinders, 1 x Rebel Pathfinder Officer. Main build for the set should be part of the landing area around the shuttle “Rogue One”, perhaps some of the grey computer boxes/cargo containers. Accessories to include blasters for all of the minis, plus a set of macro-binoculars for the officer. Rebel Alliance Scarif Pilot Battle Pack Mini-figs: 2 x Blue Squadron X-Wing Pilot (Blue Flightsuit), 1 x Gold Squadron Y-Wing Pilot (Orange Flightsuit), 1 x Blue Squadron U-Wing Pilot (Blue Flightsuit); use assorted faces and skin tones. Could make these all “name” pilots from the film. The main build for the set should be a maintenance sled with tools as seen in Rogue One hanger scenes. Accessories should include blaster pistols for all pilots. Erso Farmstead Mini-figs: 1 x Galen Erso (Farmer), 1 x Lyra Erso (Farmer) 1 x Young Jyn Erso Eadu Landing Pad Mini-figs: 1 x Galen Erso (Imperial Scientist), 1 x Imperial Scientist, 2 x Stormtrooper Scarif Citadel Tower Records Vault Control Mini-figs: 1 x Jyn Erso, 1 x Cassian Andor, 1 x Director Krennic, 1 x Death Trooper Scarif Citadel Tower Records Vault Antechamber Mini-figs: 1 x K-2SO, 1 x Imperial Officer, 2 x Stormtrooper Imperial Zeta Class Cargo Shuttle Mini-figs: 1 x Cargo Shuttle Pilot, 1 x Imperial Officer, 1 x Bodhi Rook, 1 x K-2SO This is totally unreasonable as a single wave, likely to be never done. I really like the Battle Packs though. Like with Mandalorianknight's sets, I really like the idea of sets that can link together like the modular building series. Marked with a *** below.

Episode IV – A New Hope Rebel Alliance Fleet Trooper Battle Pack Mini-figs: 3 x Alliance Fleet Troopers, 1 x Alliance Fleet Officer; use assorted faces and skin tones. The main build for the set should be something like the airlock hallway in the Tantive IV from the start of Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope.

Rebel Alliance Yavin Base Battle Pack Mini-figs: 2x Alliance Fleet Troopers, 1 x Alliance Officer, 1 x Rebel Alliance Technician; use assorted faces and skin tones.

Rebel Alliance Yavin Pilot Battle Pack Mini-figs: 2 x Red Squadron X-Wing Pilot (Orange Flightsuit), 1 x Gold Squadron Y-Wing Pilot (Orange Flightsuit), 1 x Rebel Astromech Droid; use assorted faces and skin tones. Could make these all “name” pilots from Episode IV. The main build for the set should be a troop transport sled as seen in both Rogue One & A New Hope. Accessories should include blaster pistols for all pilots. Imperial Stormtrooper Battle Pack Mini-figs: 3 x Stormtrooper, 1 x Stormtrooper Officer. The main build for the set should be one storage crate that can be opened up (storage space inside) and a bunker or weapon emplacement. Storage crate should be similar to the ones in Set #75141.

Imperial Sandtrooper Battle Pack Mini-figs: 2 x Sandtrooper, 1 x Sandtrooper Officer, 1 x Dewback Big Figure.

Imperial Inspection Team Battle Pack Mini-figs: 1 x Death Star Officer (Captain), 2 x Imperial Technician, 1 x Stormtrooper. The main build for the set should include an inspection cart and tools as carried by the sensor technicians when the Millennium Falcon was inspected in ANH, as well as one or two storage containers/crates. Accessories to include blasters for the Stormtrooper and Officer, wrenches and tools for the Technicians. Death Star Crew Battle Pack*** Mini-figs: 2 x Death Star Trooper, 1 x Imperial Officer (Lieutenant), 1 x Stormtrooper. Main build for the set should be a section of Death Star corridor that links up with various Death Star playsets to expand the play experience.

Accessories to include blasters for all of the mini-figs and a mouse droid. Tatooine Scavengers Battle Pack Mini-figs: 2 x Tusken Raiders, 1 x Jawa, 1 x Bantha Big Figure.

Accessories to include gaffi sticks for the tuskens, a jawa ion blaster, and a womp rat. Mos Eisley Scum Battle Pack Mini-figs: 1 x Wolfman Cantina Patron, 1 x Ithorian Cantina Patron, 1 x Doc Evizan, 1 x Ponda Baba. Main build for the set should be a market stall/trader’s location outside of the Mos Eisley Cantina.

Play features to include some storage boxes/crates as seen in the film around the entrance, the archway between the market and the landing bay, and some exploding brick functions for when the firefight starts. Build idea should use something like the Thor Ragnarok arena for inspiration.

Mos Eisley Cantina Stage Mini-figs: 4 x Bith Musician, 1x Sandtrooper. Main build for the set should be an addition to Set #75205, including the other half of the bar and the stage area/alcove where the band plays in the cantina. There should also be another booth or a table or two for patrons. Play features to include glasses for drinks on the bar, some form of games table, and glowing mood lighting for the alcoves. Accessories to include a blaster for the Sandtrooper, backpack for the Sandtrooper, and instruments for the Bith. Death Star Bridge Escape*** Mini-figs: 1 x Luke Skywalker, 1 x Princess Leia, 3 x Stormtrooper. The set should have multiple levels to recreate the scene with Luke and Leia swinging to safety over a chasm in the Death Star. Action features to include four working blast doors that raise and lower on the bridge level and the level above, and a grappling cable for swinging over the chasm. This set could link up with the Death Star Tractor Beam Control set, fitting beside or underneath that set. Death Star Tractor Beam Control*** Mini-figs: 1 x Old Ben (Obi-wan) Kenobi, 2 x Stormtrooper. The set recreates the scene in ANH where Obi-Wan shuts off the tractor beam power controls.

Action features for the set could include moving levers on the tractor beam power module, as well as closing blast doors at either end of the bridge.

Death Star Cell Block AA-23 Rescue*** Mini-figs: 1 x Luke Skywalker in Stormtrooper Disguise, 1 x Princess Leia, 2 x Death Star Trooper, 1 x Death Star Torture Droid. The set would recreate the cell block corridor and 6 or 8 cells opening off of it where Princess Leia was held in ANH. Action features to include working cell doors (for all cells) and a trapdoor feature to empty into the trash chute. The set would be elevated like the Rathtar Escape set, with space underneath the main corridor to allow for a chute down to the garbage compactor. This set would be part of a mega-set of 4 that would link together for a bigger play experience. The four combined sets would be the Cell Block Rescue, Cell Block Command Centre, Turbolift Lobby and Trash Compactor. Death Star Cell Block AA-23 Command Centre*** Mini-figs: 1 x Han Solo in Stormtrooper Disguise, 1 x Chewbacca in Handcuffs, 1 x Death Star Officer, 2 x Death Star Trooper.

There would also be a stretch of Death Star corridor in front of the turbolift doors long enough to provide a clean link with other Death Star play sets. Action features in the set would include opening doors to the turbolifts and a blastdoor that slides down to seal off one end of the corridor. This set would be part of a mega-set of 4 that would link together for a bigger play experience.

Death Star Primary Weapon Control*** Mini-figs: 2 x Death Star Gunners, 1 x Stormtrooper. A small set to recreate the primary ignition control station of the Death Stars primary laser weapon.

  7. Hey Thorin, No inside knowledge here, but since all four of the sets you mentioned have just been released (as in since January 1, 2020) I would say that any stocking issues at Lego are due to the pandemic, not to early retirement. Most Lego sets appear to have a roughly 2 year lifespan when it comes to being sold, unless there is a big issue with them sitting on shelves and not selling (the MBS Betrayal at Bespin counts here). Also, as far as the anecdotal evidence we have goes, all three helmet sets were big sellers, with Lego Shop online going out of stock with each of them in the first day of the May the Fourth promotion. So, take that for what you will. Cheers Edit - Beaten to the punch by JDubbs

    [MOC] MINIs from Rogue One

    Great models, and Ireally like your set ups with the mini-figs. I was not collecting when the Planet series was around, but great throwback ideas that I would buy in a heartbeat if they were official sets. Cheers :)
  9. None, I am going to give you the benefit of the doubt since you new here, but I suggest you check out the board rules, especially around the Star Wars board. The mods decide when a rumour thread for the next year goes up. Your previous thread was closed by a mod because it broke that rule. Posting again on the same topic withour checking with the mods is likely to get you banned. Cheers

    Nice to see it all in one thread, and one sequence. Excellent work! Cheers

    (MOC) 7655 remake

    Hello, I don't usually follow PT sets, but that is a nice rework. Cheers
  12. I would imagine it will depend on what local Health Authorities are ordering. Looks like in Canada things will stay closed, but that will go province by province due to the way our health system works. Cheers :)

    [MOC] First Order Transporter

    Very nice upgrade! Cheers :)
  14. I like the dioramas/mini-models, but also like the mini-figs. This one looks interesting, but I agree that a diorama for ANH would have been preferable to fill in the original trilogy spread. Cheers :)
