    LEGO Star Wars 2022 Set Discussion - READ FIRST POST!!!

    I'm thrilled with these new AP rumors. Not lame at all in my opinion. I get the feeling some people on this thread refuse to be content with anything less than perfection The Hoth will balance the Snow Trooper BP, and the AOTC will fill out my system scale Gunship really well - I've been wanting P1 Clones for awhile now to be able to do this. And maybe it means AOTC sets for the summer, with 2022 being the 20th anniversary.

    Wow, that's a lot. It makes sense, for such a big city and high profile store. I'm going to go to my local store about 2 AM, 4 hours before opening. Overnight temp is 29 degrees. The things we do for LEGO!

    Just talked to my local LEGO store here in OKC. They will be receiving 21 copies of the AT-AT for Black Friday. Someone called who lives four hours from the store and apparently will be leaving at about midnight to get here! Not sure how early I'll be going, but our store opens at 6 AM and I feel I may need to be there a few hours early to get a copy.

    It's pretty fun to go back a couple of years and read discussion threads on future sets. I tried posting a screenshot of this post from CapnRex101 on Brickset from September 2019, but couldn't figure out how to get the picture size correct. Anyway, note his comments about the Gunship, the AT-AT and Luke's Landspeeder. Amazing that we got two of the three this year, and the third is on the way next spring. I have no idea what LEGO will do with the Landspeeder, but I'll likely pick it up as long as it isn't dreadful (not sure how that would happen, honestly): "Luke's Landspeeder was referenced in several comments but the options displayed above were more popular. I could have provided more alternatives in the poll but wished to avoid including too many options.With regard to comments about an AT-AT, I have also spoken with set designers who have suggested that may not be possible using the pieces which are currently available. Even so, the demand for that UCS model has to be acknowledged here and the introduction of new parts could enable LEGO to produce an official UCS AT-AT in the future.There were some suggestions which I found surprising, the most notable being the LAAT/i Republic Gunship. I love that vehicle and past LEGO versions have been superb. However, I struggle to imagine what an Ultimate Collector Series rendition may offer to surpass other models, especially since the earlier models are minifigure-scale and minifigure interaction seems important for that kind of vehicle."

    That sounds like fun! I am guessing our local store won't have much more than 10; that's about how many they get when big new releases like Titanic or UCS Falcon start selling. I'm honestly not that interested in the GWP, so if I miss out on that/the AT-AT at first it's no big deal. There's just something about getting it on release day that sounds really appealing. Two weeks away!

    I'm wondering how early I'll need to get up and get to our local LEGO store to pick the AT-AT up on Black Friday. Anyone with any ideas? The store opens at 6 AM... maybe be there by 4 AM?! I think this set will be popular, and with the GWP there will be an initial rush like there as with the Falcon.

    Absolutely stunning model. Minus what will likely be some repetitiveness in the build with the 4 legs, this might be the best Star Wars set of all time for me. It's close with the UCS Falcon, whose build may be more interesting when compared with this. There are so many factors that go into pricing, I honestly don't know what to think of $800. Perhaps the net weight is as much as the Falcon. Perhaps the new moulds upped the price a bit. Perhaps the licensing ups it more than we realize. I don't know. I'm fine expressing grief over such a high price, but until I know more about pricing methods I'm not going to be angry at LEGO. I really hope people will see this for what it is: perhaps one of the last great and enormous Star Wars OT models they may ever release (fingers crossed for a similarly monstrous Nebulon-B in the next 2-4 years). I'm going to soak it up.

    REVIEW | 10294 Titanic

    Finally got to see the ship in person - it's as wonderful as advertised! If you're still on the fence after a solid review like this, see if you can't see the set in person. This may honestly sway you if you have the chance to see it. Thanks for a good review, VBBN.

    LEGO 10294 Titanic Discussion

    I got to our store in Oklahoma City, OK 1.5 hours before it opened. I was sixth in line! The store had a sign indicating they only had 11 in stock, and the line outside the store was up to 11 at least an hour before they opened. Store employees just assigned us numbers, then had us pay and haul the enormous box out of the store. I was a little surprised at how many people were there, but it is a once-in-a-lifetime sort of set, I suppose. I only saw about 5 or 6 people who wanted it and got there too late. Who knows what stock will be like leading up to Christmas, but I hope people who want it before then can get it. The bright side is... this thing will be around for a while, and if you didn't get it today or on pre-order, you'll almost certainly have a chance in the future. I'd wait until a double VIP day to snag it - I think that'd come out to almost $60 in VIP rewards.

    Head over heels for this set. It's simply stunning. What I really like without even seeing high-res pictures: 1. A full, highly-accurate interior 2. Posable legs 3. Dual-molded legs for General Veers 4. Nearly all pieces devoted to the actual AT-AT, without any huge side-builds, etc. 5. Speeder bikes included You can even move the neck and the large laser turrets on the front. I'll probably like it even more once official pics come out. This may be the greatest Star Wars set of all time, minus the high price.

    True, that would look pretty cool. Maybe you will be able to set up some sort of scene with the troopers. I'm wondering if the inclusion of Luke means a side build for a snowspeeder.

    Wow, this is fantastic news. I have a feeling the high amount of snow-troopers points to an interior? Honestly not sure why they'd include so many if they were only for display. This is exciting news! The rumor is a reveal date of Nov. 9th, so I'd guess a day or so before we can expect to see some leaked pictures.

    It looks like the UCS AT-AT will be revealed Nov. 9th. It'll be a long 8 days, with an extra hour thrown in for daylight savings time

    Wow, again not surprised but what a disappointment for everyone not in the UK. Good for UK residents, I hope it is fun and the prize lives up to the hype.
