    I think many would expect only clones in a Star Wars CMF

    Personally I hope the rumoured character packs aren't for army building. There's already battle packs for that - hopefully more than one on the way. I'd like to see a way of getting figs that aren't factional soldiers, say Prequel Jedi, Cantina aliens, secondary characters. Not trying to wishlist, just hoping for something that isn't battle packs mk 2.

    A single pilot means we won't be getting a two seater version. And yeah, a Hoth Chewie variant would be awesome.

    At this point releasing a UCS Landspeeder is like ripping off a band-aid: it's something that should be released imo, but whenever it happened a fountain of memes and chorus of complaints was bound to follow, so better get it over and done with. It's an instantly recognisable vehicle that actually hasn't appeared in UCS form before and is deserving of a slot in the UCS line-up. Outside of the social media bubbles it ought to do well. I kind of get why some people don't want a UCS Landspeeder, I mean ever since the XP-38 came out... For the wave as a whole (so far), as others have said the last few winter waves have been a bit 'safe'. My personal theory is that the release schedules of new SW media and when they are in development - and therefore when TLG gets promo images and such to begin their own development cycle - aligns better with the summer waves, so we see more of the newer models from the recent (and upcoming) shows then and the winter waves becomes a bit of a fall back on ol' reliables.

    They've done this with the leaves in the Treehouse and Bonsai sets, and the newly announced Fender Stratocaster comes with bricks to make either a red or black body, so they're obviously open to the idea of multiple colour possibilities in the one set. Plain clones with extra coloured bricks would be the perfect opportunity to bring this into the LSW line-up.

    Ah, you're right. Mando's helmet is taller and thinner and has a ridgeline running front to back. I think I've spent more time looking at their minifigs than their actual on-screen appearances together

    Luke's helmet is the one I'd most like to see produced, if only to get something different in the line: it's a good guy helmet and would be the first open face one - the Batman cowls have shown the direction TLG would probably go with such a design. Mando helmet will sell well, but it's ultimately a recolour of Boba's, and a monotone one at that (but if that single colour is chrome silver...)

    I think the main difference here which has a big effect on how and when tie-in sets appear in Lego waves is the type of media being released e.g movies vs TV shows. Movies are 2-3 hours of content released as a 'one and done' affair i.e. you view the entire story in a single sitting, and most people will see the movie within the first few weeks of release, while TV shows are 8 hours or more of content released over a multi-month timespan (at least at the moment with Disney+ dropping single episodes on a weekly basis). These different types of release schedules require different marketing approaches and therefore tie-ins like Lego sets will be affected. The movie wave sets, releasing a couple of months prior to the movie release, build buzz for the movie which everyone is waiting to see in the near future. If the same was done for a TV show, we might be seeing vehicles that don't appear until say, episode 15 of season 1, which is still potentially 5-6 months away from airing. Apart from any spoilers that might create, the interest in the set might not be there yet, whereas releasing it after the show/season has finished will still see the set fresh in peoples minds. I don't know how the new shows are produced, whether they are completely finished before the first episode is released, or whether post-production work on later episodes is still ongoing when the season begins, but there could also be an issue of when promotional material/new vehicle specs are released to TLG in order for them to start designing the TV tie-in sets. There seems to be a pattern of sorts at the moment with one set for an upcoming show released early - either as pre-release marketing or testing the waters to gauge interest. The difference with the Clone Wars waves from the early 2010s is that at the time that was the only new SW content being released. Now for each upcoming Lego wave there are a bunch of new shows on the horizon, plus follow up content from media just finished, plus re-releases from older media. The landscape is a lot more cluttered now to have a single wave dedicated to a single non-movie release in the way it was done in the past. Possibly over the next few years with new content coming wholly from TV releases rather than movies, there may also be a shift in how and when TLG manages their own releases.

    The Strat looks great. I like the circuit board detail on the interior of the amp and the valves at the back. I feel like they could have just gone with the red model alone as a nice contrast to the black amp (that colour pops more in the photos too) but a black Stratocaster is an iconic colour and many people will want to recreate that.

    Giving Mando a face this time around would be good incentive for people who already have the figure several times over to drop money on the microfighter. At least it would be a cheap option if it goes this way.

    Wishlist: Future Star Wars Sets and Minifigures

    I for one would want many things from this wave, especially the mini-rig. For the duel you could do Han & Chewie vs Probe Droid: Comes with snow covered Chewie, Han in Hoth gear and brick built Probe Droid (although you've already got that in the battle pack). Build would be snowy terrain to hide behind and a self destruct play feature.

    While the Razor Crest is definitely a MF that should be made, how many sets will that make with (presumably) Beskar Mando, four? Although putting him in something at that affordable price point is a good move for fans who don't have that fig yet.

    Great to finally see some new rumours, especially the return of battle packs. Maybe it's lockdown brain but I've been hanging out for news like this. Some thoughts: Pros - battle packs return! Good selection of figs, especially the Scout Trooper. Wonder if it'll be a unique variant or a regular Endor style. I didn't realise it's been so long since the last Hoth battle packs. No stud shooters! E.g. not needing to pay a couple dollars more per pack to BL regular weapons. Cons - price increase, maybe it's time for an increase but say $17 would have been much easier to swallow than a straight jump to $20. Hope the contents of the pack go someway to justifying the increase. The side builds are nice but they sound suspiciously similar to the side builds from last year's AT-AT. Not that that's a deal breaker, as not everyone will have that set, but could have been a chance to go in a different direction, maybe to introduce an official Kenner MTV-7 in Lego form, now that would justify the increased price.

    What's your recent LEGO Star Wars Purchase?

    Just built the Armoured Marauder. Great set with lots of detail and some interesting building techniques for how they get all the side detail and angles to line up. Good selection of figs - Greef Karga and the Mortar Trooper are both excellent - and very good value for money for what you get imo. Also nice to see that transparent half cylinder; hopefully those pieces will become a bit cheaper so they can be used for displaying ships in flying configurations.
