  1. Weighing in on the $15 Battle Pack thing, on one hand, it would suck to lose the best impulse sets Lego Star Wars can offer. On the other, let's be honest, Battle Packs haven't been much to write home about lately anyway. I can name like two or three Battle Packs from the last five years that were really good (RO Imperial Troopers, BF Rebel Alliance, 2017 FO Transport Speeder, 2020 Mandalorians). Not saying any of them have been terrible, far from it, but largely, I feel moving to a larger style set could be a good thing. If they keep the $15 "Battle Packs" around, I can see them being more squad/character focused. Like Jedi, Delta Squad, Rebel Pilots, etc. The $30 sets could be decent army builders, provided they have a complementary set in another price range (think AAT). For the Clone Wars, this is fairly easy. My question is, how will they expand the idea outside of that. The Empire and First Order would work well at this format, but other factions? Rebels? (maybe comic vehicles) The Naboo? Hutt Family? There's also the issue of how many figures we'd get with the $30 packs. 6 figures, 2 of which are Battle Droids (which Lego doesn't count but I do), doesn't bode well. I'd imagine they'd keep the standard four figures, with variance if it's a CIS set. I'd prefer five or even a straight six, but this isn't Ninjago. Another possibility is that Battle Packs may become 2HY releases, or even Spring releases. After all, 2018 did that with the Solo Wave (though there were winter packs, yes). In any case, this could be a good thing, or it could be counterproductive. We'll just have to see.

    I personally wouldn't want RO characters in a Yavin IV base, aside from perhaps Draven (Tantive IV was the same, but Bail was long overdo anyway). And I doubt we'd get 4 Fleet Troopers, even though that would be cool. A more reserved lineup would replace Pilot Luke (which is quite common) with someone like, say, Jon D. Branon, whose helmet we've already gotten, and you could replace Dutch with Davish Krail, another interesting helmet pattern. Red Leader stays put, it's a crime we've never gotten him, honestly. Overall, a good idea, but these would be my figure choices: Luke (Jacket), Han Solo (both medals are the CMF neck attachment), Chewbacca, Leia, Jan Dodonna, Mon Mothma (like Bail), Wedge, Biggs, Garven Dreis, "Pops" Krail, 2x Rebel Fleet Troopers, 2x Rebel Ground Crew, 2x Rebel Honor Guard, R2-D2, C-3PO, TIE Fighter Pilot, 2x Stormtroopers.

    Looks good. Is that a custom face? Does the job well. The colors are switched, but if you're not too fussed on the details (I'm not) then it works better than I expected.

    To be fair, the Landing Craft is far better known than the Diamond-class. It's kind of a droid army staple.

    @Graupensuppe Crab Droid, SPHA-T, and UT-AT are way too long overdo. They could even do the Tri-Droid and UT-AT together as a Mygeeto battle set. I did have to look up the C-9979 (never knew that was it's designation ). I can understand why the landing craft would be hard to pull off, but we haven't even had it in polybag scale.
  6. It's Tarkin's hair. Might be the lighting for you. Evazan could be uglier (but I'd have to see clearer pics), though I do like Ponda (assuming this is legit). The head only looks weird because they prioritized the vertical profile over the depth of the face. The "nose/bridge" is ever so slightly long, it should be literally a micrometer shorter, but overall it does look nice. All these years and I never noticed his mustache. I always assumed they were just updating the 2002-07 print to be more realistic. It's far closer to the 2014-19 style than 2008-10's animated clones.
  7. None, imo. TCW didn't even have Phase II armor until 2012 (show-wise)
  8. I.T.T. it's perfect! Anyways, very good as always. The figure choices are pretty boss too.

    Despite literally getting one this year, I was thinking about a Mustafar Duel set. Hear me out: Instead of the usual, we could get Padme's Star Skiff (in flat silver, as someone suggested before), and a small control room for the Separatist Council. Figures included would be Padme, Obi-Wan, C-3PO, Anakin, Wat Tambor, San Hill, and 2x Security Battle Droids. It could focus on Anakin and Obi-Wan's opening parries, the fight on the platform and then the control room. Padme and the CIS leaders would be extras for us collectors, but ultimately side pieces (as far as marketing goes...)
  10. It's an egregious oversight. Also, if anyone should have the top spot, it should be Luke. (honestly thought Rey was Luke before looking closer). This is outrageous! It's unfair! I do like Han's pose a lot though, it's somehow very in-character.

    That's supposed to be Moradmin Bast, Tarkin's right hand man.

    Don't have pictures (yet), but for those of you looking to make versions of the Imperial Joint Chiefs, these are two options I've discovered. Cassio Tagge head, I personally used this hair, to interesting effect. The official bowl cut part is much too large for Tagge's buzz-bowl. Conan Antonio Motti with this hairpiece, which I think works very well. As far as torsos/rank badges go, none of the current torsos are accurate, so whatever feels right will do. For reference, Tagge has six red bars, while Motti has 2 blue then 4 red. Thought I'd throw that out there.
  13. Same. I must have just missed them.
  14. Never tell me the odds!
  15. 10. Just not Luke's. There's the green one with triple-vertical engines. I think that would make for a cool design. No way we're getting a new Luke's Landspeeder, we just got one in January.
