    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 :)
  2. 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 :)
  3. The gray ones give you more space since they are larger. Tan can work, but they are not in production at the moment (at least according to the Lego Shop@Home site). The currently specialty colour in production at the moment (aside from the standard Gray, Green and Blue) is white. So, depends on what type of city you want I suppose. Desert city, get Tan. More urban and paved/built up city, get the Gray. Something more Naboo like? Get Green. Cheers :)

    Mandalorian MOC Wave

    Excellent work. If these were real, I might be buying a couple of copies of some of them (the Assault Lander is just cool). Thanks for sharing. Cheers :)

    Project Tatooine

    Very impressive!
  6. Sorry, cannot help you with the A-Wing, but several UCS sets in recent years have only been up for sale for 12 - 18 months, so it may be close to retirement as it came out last May 4th. The Star Destroyer is likely even closer to retirement since it has been out Since October 2019. Now that said, perhaps they are looking at longer shelf life if things are selling well. The latest UCS Millennium Falcon has been on shelves for longer than expected (although there are rumours it is now officially retired and will disappear from Lego sites once the current supply chain issues are solved). Nothing really definite there, sorry. Cheers :)
  7. Looks great. Out of curiousity, approximately how many parts in the ITT/Trexler Marauder? Cheers :)

    77904 Nebulon B Frigate

    Well, yes, but my point was that the recent Bespin Duel set was also listed as a US exclusive, but was marketed to both the US and Canada (aka the english speaking portion of North America). There was the real possibility that the same trend would repeat for this release. Remember, the Bespin Duel was also supposed to be a US Convention exclusive.

    77904 Nebulon B Frigate

    Unlike the Bespin Duel set, it looks like Lego really did make this one a US only exclusive. Checked multiple times on Shop Lego Canada with no luck, an not a hint of it showing up on Amazon.ca. Oh well, at least it can be built with the instructions. Cheers
  10. Maybe we do. They are speculating on what may show up in the 2021 sets. We do not have confirmation on any of this so far (even the Death Star Droid leak is not a confirmation on where it may show up). Cheers :)
  11. Nothing official, and no credible rumours on what 75303 will be that I have seen. That it will be the Spring UCS set seems pretty certain according to the regular sources, but nothing beyond that. Of course, I stand to be corrected. Cheers :)
  12. I know you got your answer, but in all of the sets I have collected, I have only had missing parts twice. The first time was a Star Wars set and amazingly it was a pair of blasters. I was amazed that something like that could be missed in packing. Lego Customer Service was very good about the replacement though. The second time was a Bricks and Pieces order. That was likely picker error, as think those are the only orders that have a human doing the parts collection. Again, no issue with replacement. Like Mandalorianknight I have had mis-printed pieces on several occasions (and messed up stickers). Lego Customer Service is always good about making good on the issue, even if you have to wait a few weeks for the replacement to arrive. Cheers :)

    Unpopular Opinions related to Lego Star Wars

    If you have Disney+ then go over to the Star Wars Portal, and under that you will find a line for Series. Clone Wars should be there with two entries (one for Season 1 - 6 and the second for Season 7 stand-alone). Cheers :)
  14. So, for those interested - Bespin Duel 75294 has just gone from "Temporarily Unavailable" to "Backorder" status on Lego.com. At least for the Canadian version of the sales site. If you missed out before, now may be the time to try to get an order in. They are limiting quantities, but I suspect this round will be similar to last round. Cheers :)
  15. Bespin Duel, which just went into Back Order status on LegoShop (in Canada at least).
  16. Hello, For those interested, the Bespin Duel 75294 is now listed as "Temporarily Out of Stock" on all of the following Lego Shop sites: Canada https://www.lego.com/en-ca/product/bespin-duel-75294 https://www.lego.com/fr-ca/product/bespin-duel-75294 Mexico https://www.lego.com/en-mx/product/bespin-duel-75294 https://www.lego.com/es-mx/product/bespin-duel-75294 United States https://www.lego.com/en-us/product/bespin-duel-75294 It does not look like the set has made the migration anywhere outside of North America, but it does look like it may be back for a second wave of sales once manufacturing catches up. At least that is what I can hope considering early last week it was showing up as "Sold Out" For those in other locations, you may be able to still get a copy if you have connections in North America. Cheers :)
  17. So, interesting and potentially explosive news here. At least on the Canadian version of the Lego Shop@Home the Bespin Duel set has gone from being listed as "Sold Out" to "Temporarily Out of Stock" https://www.lego.com/en-ca/product/bespin-duel-75294 Not sure if other versions of the site will see the same thing. Cheers :)
  18. @Mandalorianknight I had a similar issue with the helmet of the T-16 Skyhopper pilot in the recent Skyhopper vs. Bantha battlepack. Called into Lego Customer Service as I could not get anything to submit through the web portal. They were very friendly and arranged a replacement. Within 5 days I received a notice saying a replacement had shipped. I am still waiting for the package to arrive, as mail service is still messed up due to COVID-19 in my area. I will let you know when things arrive, but like @Csaba I would recommend calling in for the replacement. Lego Customer Service did seem very concerned about the printing error and the operator asked me several questions about the printing error so that the information could be passed on to the production side. Cheers :)

    Future Star Wars Sets

    Love these ideas and totally agree. I think these would definitely help with sales, and also make set creation and selection much more interesting. Cheers :)
