  1. Unless there is something special about your local version of ShopLego.com then you can use VIP points online. You just have to select the proper online token in the Rewards Centre. Cheers :)
  2. Good question. Sources still seem to indicate the UCS AT-AT is coming in November, and that an announcement should be soon. That said, we have no official confirmation that I have seen. Cheers :)
  3. Al of these Hoth sets sound great. Fairly certain I posted this before, but the idea of a modular Echo Base is an excellent one: Hoth Ice Fields Mini-figs: 1 x Luke Skywalker (Hoth), 1 x Han Solo (Hoth), 1 x Chewbacca (Hoth), 1 x Wampa. The set would recreate the early parts of The Empire Strikes Back with a portion of the set being an ice plain, with several small rock piles and snow mounds; an imperial probe droid would be part of this build. At the extreme edge of the ice plain build, or as an entirely separate build, the wampa cave would be included (with some more detail/depth than prior sets). The ambush that Han and Chewie set for the probe droid could be recreated amongst the snow mounds, as could Han rescuing Luke in the snowstorm. Action features to include a hanging upside down in the wampa cave feature for Luke, the loss of an arm to the wampa, and possibly an exploding feature to the probe droid. Accessories to include 2 Tauntauns, blasters for Han and Luke, Luke’s Blue Lightsaber, and Chewie’s Bowcaster. Hoth Echo Base Command Centre Mini-figs: 1 x General Carlist Rieekan, 1 x Toryn Farr, 2 x Rebel Technicians, 1 x Princess Leia (Hoth), 1 x K-3P0. The set will recreate the command and control centre of Echo Base on Hoth. It should include several computer consoles/workstations along the walls as in the movie, two or three standing clear plotting maps or scanner screens, and several doors leading to other areas of the base. Action features to include opening and closing doors, swiveling chairs at the computer consoles, and a collapsing wall/ceiling feature to simulate battle damage when Imperials enter the base. Accessories for the mini-figs to include blasters for Leia, Rieekan, and Toryn, and tools for the technicians. Link pins at the door areas of the build should allow the set to be connected with other Echo Base sets. Hoth Echo Base Snow Corridor Mini-figs: 1 x Hoth Rebel Trooper, 2 x Rebel Technicians, 1 x R2 Series Astromech. The set will recreate one of the many snowy tunnels inside of Echo Base on Hoth. The main portion of the build will be a long corridor with T-junction at the end. On one side of the corridor would be maintenance/storage room with supply boxes. Action features to include a working door for the storage room, and another blast door sealing off one end of the T-junction. Link pins in several places on the set would allow it to be connected to other Echo Base sets to enhance the play experience. Hoth Echo Base V-150 Planet Defender Ion Cannon Mini-figs: 1 x Hoth Rebel Officer, 2 x Rebel Technicians, 1 x Hoth Rebel Trooper, 2 x Imperial Snowtroopers. Give us a good sized Ion Cannon to fit into a Hoth battleground. Needs to scale to an AT-AT much better than the models seen so far especially in the most recent Assault on Hoth set. Depending on part count can include a section of snow trench or landscape for the cannon to sit in. Set should be built with link pieces to connect with other Echo Base sets. Hoth Echo Base Outpost 1 Mini-figs: 1 x Hoth Rebel Officer, 2 x Hoth Rebel Troopers, 2 x Imperial Snowtroopers. The set will recreate one of the small rebel outposts that report in on imperial action before being destroyed at the start of the Battle of Hoth. Main build should be a small snow-covered bunker for the rebels with a heavy blaster cannon emplacement. There should also be a Tauntaun for scouting. The imperials should have an E-Web blaster cannon for the attack. Action features for the set could include a stud shooter for the rebel heavy blaster cannon, as well as a function to make the bunker collapse or explode as if destroyed by enemy fire. For added play value, include a link piece to allow this set to combine with the Hoth Ice Fields set, to represent being away from the main base, or with any of the other Echo Base sets for more modular and bigger play options. Hoth Echo Base Trench Defense Mini-figs: 1 x Hoth Rebel Officer, 3 x Hoth Rebel Troopers, 2 x Imperial Snowtroopers. The set will recreate the main defensive trench line in front of Hoth Echo Base. There should be two cannon turrets as in Set 75138, at least one Atgar Cannon (radar dish looking cannon), and at least 1 Tauntaun. Action features could include stud shooters or flick launchers for the cannons. For added play value, add link pieces to both ends of the trench line so that multiple sets can be linked together, or linked to other Echo Base sets for more modular and bigger play options. Hoth Echo Base Shield Generator Assault Mini-figs: 1 x Imperial Snowtrooper Officer, 3 x Imperial Snowtroopers, 2 x Hoth Rebel Troopers. The main portion of the build will be the shield generator for Hoth Echo Base (make sure it has four fins like in the movie). The set should also include a section of snow trench/landscape that the rebels and imperials can fight over. The imperials should have an E-Web Blaster Cannon and one or two speeder bikes, possibly a transport sled for heavy equipment. The rebels should have at least one Tauntaun. Action features for the set could include an “exploding” function for the shield generator, and possibly an exploding mound of snow to represent the firefight going on. Hoth Echo Base Main Hanger Mini-figs: 1 x Major Bren Derlin, 1 x Wedge Antilles (Pilot), 1 x Wes Janson (Pilot), 2 x Hoth Rebel Troopers, 1 x R2 Series Droid. Build to include a working hanger door, two or three maintenance bays for snowspeeders as part of a long wall that ends in the base Tauntaun pens, and at least one snowspeeder build. Near the Tauntaun pens would be a small side door out of the base. Two cannon turrets as in Set 75138 should be part of the set and placed outside the base on either side of the hanger doors. Accessories to include 2 Tauntauns, blasters for the figures, a small maintenance cart to carry gear to the snowspeeders, and a tool station for snowspeeder repairs. Action features to include the working main hanger doors, a small opening blast door by the Tauntaun pens, swiveling cannon turrets, and stud shooters/flick missiles on the cannon turrets. Cheers :)

    Great to see it all together. Amazing scenes Cheers :)
  5. Hello, Never had to do this myself, but I recall seeing somewhere on a thread here (don't ask me when), that you need to call Lego Customer Service directly with your order number, etc. Sorry, I know that is perhaps not the greatest help. Take it for what it is worth. Cheers :)

  9. Hello, A little late to the conversation myself as well. Discounts on certain sets certainly seem to be fewer than in the past. I came out of my dark ages and started doing some building again in 2016 and it seemed at that point I could wait and get deals on most sets, even the really big ones. Sometimes it was only 15 - 20%, but in most cases if I was patient I could get up to 30% and sometimes 40% off. Amazon was certainly a factor in that, but even local retailers like Toys R Us Canada, WalMart Canada and others would join in. Since Toys R Us went bust in the US (we still have the store in Canada) the number of deals I see has shrunk, and it has been especially bad from late 2019 onwards. Certainly the pandemic has made things tougher for toy manufacturers, including Lego, to get all of the materials they need for products, but even before COVID deals on set in general, and bigger sets in particular, were harder to get. Long story short, hunt as much as you can and you might get lucky. If you see a deal and you are interested in the set, grab it while you can. If you second guess yourself it may be harder to get something later. For the longest time I was waiting to see if I could get a deal on the RazorCrest and the MBS Cantina as both were on Amazon. But after a year of waiting on both, the best that showed up was the Cantina being discounted $27.00 by Amazon.ca. I waited a couple of days to see if it would dip lower, it went out of stock, and now it is being advertised at $800.00 or more by third party sellers on Amazon. I took the plunge to buy both sets from Shop@Home during May the 4th to get the double points, because that will be a better deal for me in the long run. Sorry, long post, but I feel you pain as I am still waiting for a deal on the AT-AT myself. Cheers :)

    [MOC] Battle of Hoth - Pursuit of Flight

    That is a very neat set up. Great work. Thanks for sharing. Cheers :)
  11. Way back when we had the first few little rumours I believe that 75303 was originally pegged as a Microfighter build. Traditionally we have been getting three of these, two single Microfighters and a Dual/Pair set. At the end of the day through, only two Microfighter sets came out this wave, and the numbering does not line up. They are 75295 Millennium Falcon Microfighter and 75298 AT-AT vs Tauntaun Microfighters. Usually when we get Microfighters they line up in numerical sequence as It seems likely they are planned as a group fo release. All that said, the numbering for this year's sets is all over the place with lots of gaps, so who knows. We will see later this year I suppose. Cheers :)
  12. I will not put words in @Falconfan1414 mouth, but I think he is listing those as possibilities. We do know that Lego is generally designing most sets for retail sale at least a year, and sometimes more, in advance of when they are on shelves. The speculation and leaks around set lists that can be at least 6 months, if not 8 - 12 month, in advance of sales helps support this. That said, we are veering into speculation and wish-listing here which is for the other thread. So, I will stop there. Cheers :)

    The Mandalorian - Imperial Anti-aircraft Gun MOC

    Indeed, very nice. Thank you for providing a picture of the bottom of the build. I had figured out most of your base work, but that really helped. Cheers :)
  14. Hello, OK, my turn to set out a few CMF wish-lists. Going to stick with what appears to be Lego's new standard of only 12 minis per set: Set 1: Rogue One/Original Trilogy I Set 2: Rogue One/Original Trilogy II Set 3: Rogue One/Original Trilogy III Of course, they can all be mixed and matched as well. Cheers :)
