    I'm glad I was still able to get UCS AT-AT in my local Lego store with lightaber promotion + I got the year of the tiger promo as well! Now for a Display case and some snowtrooper battlepacks

    It was 100% supplied by Lucasfilm. I remember seeing this exact snowtrooper patch on another website where I was looking for a real-life snowtrooper helmet. However I can't, for the life of me, remember where exactly I saw it

    LEGO 10294 Titanic Discussion

    Interesting, I was not aware of this partnership, this may produce some sets available for larger consumption (I hope) I agree, Titanic scale is probably not something Lego would dare to come close with another ship. The only examples worthy of such size in my opinion would be battleships but we know Lego won't make them Who knows what will happen to 18+ line and how consistent it will be in the future. Right now it's hard to predict a pattern with its sub-themes such as ships and railway, both of which I would like to see more of in the future For now, even a smaller scale container or any other modern ship would be enough for me, similar to already existing Maersk ships

    LEGO 10294 Titanic Discussion

    I would love the idea of an official Lego battleship on a scale as the Titanic but sadly, there's just no way - even with the 18+ line of sets. Real-life warfare and Lego don't mix (this holds 99% true, remember the Sopwith camel and some Germans in Lego Indiana Jones sets) What I could see happening is potentially an unofficial sub-line of big ships under 18+ lineup. But seeing Lego testing the waters with this lineup more than anything, I too think this is unfortunately not very realistic A big civilian ships could be nice too - a container ship, a tanker (too controversial perhaps?), a modern cruise ship...

    just an observation - the limit of snowtrooper battlepacks in Slovenia region of Lego.com is 5 and they are still in stock. No luck with minifig packs though, although they were available for some time on the 1st and 2nd of January, I think. I really pity you Aussies, being a separate continent has a lot of advantages and also a lot disadvantages in this specific case...

    came across this video today - for anyone looking to mod the set to be as authentic as possible. Great channel for naval topics btw

    This. My first question when hearing about this price and potential MBS association was: how in the hell do you make a MBS set that is worth over 500$? Death star I can see for this price tag (both 1 and 2 or a combo) but not much else. I also don't think lego is comfortable with making anything for this price that isn't OT yet - Gunship sales data is still being collected for more potential prequel UCS set analysis and lego makes their plans for about a year in advance, so when they decided on this set, the gunship either started selling not too long ago or was about to be put on shelves - so this 500$+ set probably isn't influenced by gunship in any way. In my mind, this crosses any prequel stuff off the list. Even then, say it's Endor MBS, what do you include for 530$? AT-ST, the bunker (sizeable at that one), threes, foliage, a ton of minifigs, maybe a village like MaximillianRebo suggested... I still don't see 530$ but I'm keeping an open mind.

    In context of some parts of this thread this gif still seems relevant (Hi @Brickroll I've just figured out what your name & profile pic is ) - it has never stopped being relevant ever since more concrete info on the minifig packs started leaking Joking aside I'll wait for official information on the minifig packs. I never expected them to be anything special so the leaks don't impact me as some other people - certainly not enough to argue over it

    LEGO 10294 Titanic Discussion

    It seems this really is one of the best sets lego has produced to date, I'm really happy for anyone that got or will get it. If it hadn't been for the fact that UCS AT-AT releases so close to this set I probably would've gone and picked one myself Speaking of the assembled set do you guys have any display cases in mind? I have a smaller Titanic model on a shelf (around 88 cm long) and since I neglected to dust it regularly it's now almost impossible to get the dust off of it

    So now that a few people have the set in hand, what's the building and overall experience? I probably will never have this set myself but it's dang cool and I'm really interested in what people have to say about it

    Not really sure how many people will find this info useful but for those in Slovenia (and possibly Austria/Balkan region) Mueller store has BB shuttle on discount for 80€ till the end of the year. Naturally I had to grab one myself. Check your local Mueller toy catalogue before you go shopping though

    I hope that there will be a limit otherwise there will still be supply and demand issue. I'm in no rush with battlepacks really, I want to get UCS AT-AT first and that won't probably happen till January/February of 2022. It is nice that lego is embracing Hoth on a grand scale though

    AT-ST looks okay, I might get it but I'm in no rush for this one. Battlepack is where it's at - I'll need to get a lot of them since the UCS AT-AT will look better with all seats occupied. Nice start of 2022 I might say!

    has there been any rumours about snowtrooper battlepack including any speeder bikes? I'd be nice to have a few extra of those to fill in the UCS AT-AT speeder bike bay

    I'm not sure about previous years but I can confirm that last year they did run double VIP points on black Friday. I bought a few things myself
