  1. So, thinking here, what about the following options: Larger GWP Option 1 - Zeta Class Shuttle, midi-scale Option 2 - Scarif Citadel Tower, midi-scale or microscale Option 3 - Scarif Master Switch Console, mini-fig scale with Chirrut and Deathtrooper Battepacks Agree with all of your options. For the Scarif Rebel pack I would add either some cargo containers or palm trees/bushes as the supplemental build to set the scene. Standard Sets $30 - $35 - Scarif Data Vault - The lobby to the data vault, sealable security door, and search console. Jyn, Cassian, K-2SO, Imperial Officer $40 - $60 - Eadu Imperial Platform - 1 x Galen Erso, 1 x Director Krennic, 1 x Imperial Scientist, 1 x Deathtrooper; scene is the Eadu landing platform when Krennic arrives to "inspect" and interrogate the scientists about the leak. or ... $40 - $60 - Scarif Jungle Battle - 2 x Rebel Pathfinders, 1 x Stormtrooper, 2 x Shoretrooper; scene is part of the jungle area where the rebels attack/knock out a bunch of imperials before the real firefight begins $60 - $160 - Zeta Class Shuttle "Rogue One" - With the main rebel cast Jyn, Cassian, Chirrut, Baze, Bohdi, K-2SO, 1 x Rebel Commando (Melshi?), 1 x Shoretrooper or ... $60 - $160 - Partisan X-Wing - Saw Guerrera, Two-Tubes, 1 x Saw's Partisans Quote Set "I am One with the Force and the The Force is With Me" I can see this one of two ways, either Chirrut before beating up the Stormtroopers on Jedha (Chirrut, Stormtroopers, Ruined Streetscape) or ... The Scarif Master Switch Console during the final battle just before Chirrut begins his walk into the open. (Chirrut, Baze, Stormtrooper, DeathTrooper)
  2. If I could upvote your post I would. Nice list. :)
  3. For GWPs might I suggest any of the following: Vehicle Polybag GWP - X-Wing Starfighter (slightly bigger than the advent calendar ones) - TIE Interceptor - TIE Bomber - The Razorcrest Location Set GWP - Lars Family Moisture Farm (Uncle Owen, vaporator and part of the house dome or entry door) - Jakku Walker (Rey with Pilot Helmet, inside of Jakku AT-AT that she uses as a home) - Operation Stardust (Jyn Erso, Scarif Tower Record Bank section) Cheers :)
  4. I like a mix in the calendar if possible. Some generic army builder type figure are nice. if supplies last I can get the advent calendar on sale after December 1st in many cases and use as parts packs, so stormtroopers, scout troopers, etc. are great. That said, I also have a soft spot for unique figures and funny figures to a certain extent. I prefer the unique figures more than the funny figures (like Beach Vader), but they can have a place. Cheers :)
  5. Very good question. I have not heard of this happening before. Something I always check when I do an online order with S@H because I have heard of so many cases here on the Boards where people have had parts of orders cancelled due to being over the limit for # of copies of a single set. Cheers :)
  6. Indeed, I checked for the S@H site for Canada and the list is updated here as well. Most of the retired sets were taken off the list and newer sets added on. The updated list of Double VIP point items (at least for Canada) is: 40391 First Order Stormtrooper Brick Sketch 40431 BB-8 Brick Sketch 40539 Ahsoka Tano Brickheadz 40557 Defence of Hoth 40558 Clone Trooper Command Station 75255 Yoda 75257 Millennium Falcon 75280 501st Legion Clone Troopers 75283 Armored Assault Tank (AAT) 75288 AT-AT 75292 The Razor Crest 75293 Resistance I-TS Transport 75295 Millennium Falcon Microfighter 75297 4+ Resistance X-Wing Starfighter 75298 AT-AT vs. Tauntaun Microfighters 75299 Trouble on Tatooine 75300 Imperial TIE Fighter 75301 Luke Skywalker’s X-Wing Starfighter 75302 Imperial Shuttle 75310 Duel on Mandalore 75311 Imperial Armoured Marauder 75312 Boba Fett’s Starship 75314 The Bad Batch Attack Shuttle 75315 Imperial Light Cruiser 75316 Mandalorian Starfighter 75317 The Mandalorian Brickheadz 75318 The Child 75319 The Armorer’s Mandalorian Forge 75320 Snowtrooper Battle Pack 75321 The Razor Crest Microfighter 75322 Hoth AT-ST 75324 Dark Trooper Attack 75326 Boba Fett’s Throne Room 75327 Luke Skywalker Red Five Helmet 75328 The Mandalorian Helmet 75342 Republic Fighter Tank 75343 Dark Trooper Helmet No surprise that the new "Quotes" sets are not on the list since they just released, but 75296 Darth Vader's Meditation Chamber is conspicuously absent. Also absent is 75306 Imperial Probe Droid and 75308 R2-D2. So, some statues make it in to the special VIP offer and others do not. Cheers :)
  7. Hello, Slight tangent here. Just listing the Canadian Shop@Home list of double VIP point sets for reference. Pretty sure it is identical to the other ones posted, but I sorted the list to make it easier (for my brain) to follow.: 40391 First Order Stormtrooper Brick Sketch 40431 BB-8 Brick Sketch 40539 Ahsoka Tano Brickhead 40557 Defence of Hoth 40558 Clone Trooper Command Station 75249 Resistance Y-Wing Starfighter 75251 Darth Vader’s Castle 75254 AT-ST Raider 75255 Yoda 75257 Millennium Falcon 75266 Sith Troopers Battle Pack 75268 4+ Snowspeeder 75269 Duel on Mustafar 75270 Obi-Wan’s Hut 75271 Luke Skywalker’s Landspeeder 75272 Sith TIE Fighter 75278 D-O 75281 Anakin’s Jedi Interceptor 75283 Armored Assault Tank (AAT) 75284 Knight’s of Ren Transport Ship 75286 General Grievous’ Starfighter 75288 AT-AT 75291 Death Star Final Duel 75292 The Razor Crest 75293 Resistance I-TS Transport 75295 Millennium Falcon Microfighter 75297 4+ Resistance X-Wing Starfighter 75298 AT-AT vs. Tauntaun Microfighters 75299 Trouble on Tatooine 75300 Imperial TIE Fighter 75301 Luke Skywalker’s X-Wing Starfighter 75302 Imperial Shuttle 75307 Star Wars Advent Calendar (2021) 75310 Duel on Mandalore 75311 Imperial Armoured Marauder 75312 Boba Fett’s Starship 75314 The Bad Batch Attack Shuttle 75315 Imperial Light Cruiser 75316 Mandalorian Starfighter 75317 The Mandalorian Brickheads 75318 The Child 75319 The Armorer’s Mandalorian Forge 75320 Snowtrooper Battle Pack 75321 The Razor Crest Microfighter 75324 Dark Trooper Attack 75342 Republic Fighter Tank Cheers :)

    Very nice design. Cheers :)

    BTL K-Wing Bomber

    Very nice! Cheers :)
  10. 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 :)
  11. 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 :)
  12. 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 :)

    FINISHED: The Empire Strikes Back in LEGO

    Great to see it all together. Amazing scenes Cheers :)
  14. 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 :)
