    Yeah, they have their pluses too for sure. Cool that you find multiple uses for them. I could also see younger kids getting a kick out of peeling and placing stickers, even if adults rarely do lol.

    This is my approach - wait and see. I made the mistake of thinking HP Icons would be silly, then it turned out to be what I consider a great set. I can't wait to see this one. It honestly doesn't come down to quality these days as much as money. Sets I'm interested in at the moment for 2022: $550 Hulkbuster, $500 Hogwarts Express, $600 Razor Crest, $270 Bowser, $670 Eiffel Tower, $120 The Office. Sets I can afford - maybe one or two of the above. That's $2,710 of LEGO total just in that list. I'm already trying to budget for Indiana Jones and LOTR next year... it's just too much, too fast, for too much money, LEGO. I think they need to spread some of these releases out, honestly.

    Personally, it takes away from the overall aesthetic. Stickers tend to be slightly off from the color shade of the bricks on which they're placed; this is the case with the yellow stripes on the RC. Otherwise, you have the frustration of trying to place stickers correctly, as well as the issue of stickers peeling over time. Printed pieces are more expensive, and some pieces can't be printed, but I quite prefer prints to stickers even if they do cost more.

    My thoughts as well. You could argue, I suppose, the popularity of this model at this scale may not match the level of the Falcon, AT-AT and Star Destroyer, but I still think it will sell well. I'll definitely be picking it up with an eventual double points promo.

    I think it does and we'll get all of that. It'd be strange to do an interior for a ship at this scale and not flesh out the full interior. The Falcon couldn't have it for structural reasons, and I guess that might be a limiting factor here. Can't wait to see!

    October 3 for VIPs, and October 8 for everyone else.

    Yeah I figure it doesn't. Probably just detaches if anything or is permanently fixed in position similar to the UCS Falcon, which is fine I guess.

    First pics of the Crest have leaked. It looks incredible. I can't wait to see the interior. The Blurrg is difficult to make out, but it looks a little underwhelming. I'm also curious to see if the landing gear is retractable. I'd guess not, but it'd be pretty cool if it's a function they were able to work in.

    So, is the Royal Sea Leopard the ship some thought would be the $500 D2C before?

    Disagreement doesn't equal sensitivity, but in fairness my "wow" and questions might have given that vibe. "Garbage" and like-rhetoric before you've seen the model apart from the other details is just strange to me. UCS sets are mostly about the model for me; figs and brick-built creatures are secondary at best. I'll personally wait to actually see the set, but respect if stickers, figs, and price are deal-breakers. Also, I'm in my mid-30's, married, and father of 3, so "kid" is a bit of an odd title. Yep. It depends on the piece count devoted to it, but I think this could look really cool.

    Wow... haven't seen anything yet and it's already garbage? Maybe wait for the thing to be released? Stickers are a definite pain, but I'd give it a look before I ruled it out entirely.

    Really glad they decided not to do a display stand, re-directing pieces and budget to other places. I can't wait to see the Blurrg!

    My range of emotions currently waiting impatiently for/imagining pictures of the Razor Crest. Can't wait to see this model.
