  1. I am incredibly disappointed with no prequel or clone wars sets besides the possibility of the gunship, not to mention not getting any battlepacks. Saves me for money for 501st sets tho ;) Despite that I am very interested in these cheaper versions of vehicles from the OT and I can’t wait to see a picture of them. I think these kind of cheaper sets are the right direction to go in, as someone described they could be similar to the style of 2008 Star Wars sets.
  2. Oh no I'm not brave enough for politics.
  3. Oh I didn't even know that! It's that print then, I don't care for the microfighters so that's why I didn't know.
  4. Just pulled out my obi wans hut to compare the build styles and The build styles look to be consistent. Same dome and tiles on the roof and use of sloped pieces on the corners of the buildings. I think it’s probably a real picture. Anybody else notice what might be a dirt print on the new style stormtrooper helmet to the right?
  5. No way there gonna change that, how else could they improve them? They could try to add more articulation or detail but the current ones already look accurate enough and adding more articulation would make the battle droids more frail than they already are, unless they made their limbs thicker. The only thing I could ever actually imagine them changing is the torso mold by adding more plastic to the top half to make them more accurate.
  6. Maybe they won’t ditch them but what’s stopping them from raising the price to 20, 25 or 30 bucks and saying “battle packs restrict the vehicles we can include” as justification to raise the price just like the designers said in that 501st interview with brickset. Even though vehicles are not the reason people buy battle packs, adding two of them or making them slightly bigger justifies a price double of a normal battlepack and people are still gonna buy it, the designers also said in that interview “We wanted to include as many minifigures as possible!” but our extra “minifigures” end up being two battle droids instead of another 501st clone. What i'm saying is instead of ditching the battle packs they slowly- or not so slowly, turn them into like what we see in the 501st set. I still like 501st set and the kind of set that it is, however I do not like if that kind of 30 dollar set replaces the current battle packs completely or that battle packs slowly turn into that kind of set. Ideally I’d like to see both exist, two normal battle packs in the winter wave and one larger battle pack during the summer wave.
  7. Anybody get a strange feeling we’re not gonna see any battle packs next year? I feel like sets like the new 30 dollar 501st set will take their place. Over the past few years battlepack prices have gone up and they started only releasing two packs a year instead of four. I also noticed that in the City line they stopped making the 10 dollar sets that had 4 figures. It feels as if normal battlepacks are slowly being pushed out.
  8. Definitely, they have put unique back printing on caped characters, why not put unique faces on helmeted troopers? I didn't mention it before but i'm hoping that Lego creating these new faces for clones is a sign we might be seeing more clones in future waves.
  9. YES LETS GOOOOOO! I love the new accurate clone faces the angry clone face always looked off to me since it was white but also that the expression always was angry.
  10. LOL MY BAD! I fixed that.
  11. I'm so glad these pictures came out! I think they did an excellent job on the AAT, I theorized that they may include more figures rather than make the AAT bigger but I'm so glad they actually did make it larger. From what I can tell the turret, main section and side turrets are bigger while the bottom only appears to be a little wider. Overall its a must have set, especially since Ahsoka and a 332nd is in it! Anakin's Jedi Intercepter is mediocre, for 30 dollars we get a reused build with only 2 figs one of which is R2. I don't have any previous versions though so I'm gonna pick it up anyway The Souless One is a similar situation to the Intercepter, a sorta reused build and now it's 80 DOLLARS! I already have a version of it so gonna pass on this one, but Jesus that price. I am actually really happy they rereleased the final duel because I missed out on it back in 2015. It seems they only did a few minor improvements, I don't think it could have hurt if they just did something new or little bit different with it IMO but I'm definitely gonna grab this one. As for the NightBuzzard, It's not a bad build and the Knights of Ren are cool looking but no yellow lightsaber for Rey? I'm just not a fan of the sequels so it's gonna be a pass, but it's still disappointing they couldn/t have just included the yellow lightsaber. And finally the resistance transport... I don't really care for it, I haven't been to Galaxy's Edge so I don't have any connection to it. I will say that the grey mon calamari is a pretty cool figure IMO. It's definitively still a pass though.
  12. Yeah my bad its Obi Wan who uses it in the scene. In the incredibly blurry picture it looked more like Grevious was holding it, though then I guess it wouldn't be as accurate to the scene.
  13. Write that down Lego!
  14. Yeah when I looked at that image I also saw that purple thing. I personally think the figure looks more like a clone because the purple thing doesn't look like its being held by that figure, the purple thing could just be a magnaguard staff accessory that Grevious is holding and the other figure is just a clone.
  15. Those actually don't look that bad at all and they seem pretty collectible if its at that price. I wonder how more complex faces like Maul's would be done on a small grid like that. Now I wanna see some prequel and original trilogy brick sketches!
