  1. Really hard to imagine Rex not coming in the next couple years now that we have the Phase II helmet with holes. It’s only a matter of time now
  2. Definitely $20 overpriced and Lego knows it. Gotta say tho, from a business standpoint, the AT-TE was literally the best possible set you could do that to, literally the definition of “it’ll sell anyway” Can’t wait for the inevitable $180+ playscale Gunship in the next couple of years
  3. I'm looking at them and... yeah I really think they should've went for a $140 Justifier and $160 AT-TE AT-TE is way too small and too similar to the 2013 version, and the Justifier looks like it's way too stretched out and doesn't make very good use of it's space. Actually seeing them, I really would've rathered a downscaled $140 Justifier and a big 2008 sized $160 AT-TE
  4. I prefer it, I’d rather have a consistent clone army rather than having 2 separate types of clones personally.
  5. I'm just waiting on the AT-TE itself. Cody looks absolutely amazing, but I'm not really all that thrilled with the descriptions of the set itself so far. I'm hoping for a pleasant surprise, but I'm not gonna count on it, and ultimately, it's not gonna stop me from getting it just for Cody
  6. Pretty sure it’s because Lego is going for a more uniform look for the clones, so it combines the 2 looks rather than making them specifically for either TCW or ROTS
  7. Not really the comparison i’d make for that. Promobricks says it’s the size of the playscale falcon, which is pretty in line with $160 (or i guess $170 now but you know what I mean), It’s just a really niche thing to pick for the price point. The AT-TE from what we’ve been hearing about it, honestly sounds more overpriced than the Justifier does.
  8. Nah I actually highly doubt that. Usually sets take about 2-ish years to make if I remember correctly and if you apply that timeline to the possible Razor Crest, it would’ve started being worked on during the peak of the ship’s popularity, before it gets blown up in season 2. I’m almost certain it’s just a timing thing, but really, who knows.
  9. The Crest becoming more likely? Love to hear it I’d guess it’s gonna be about the size of the UCS AT-AT without it’s legs and with 2 big engines if it happens
  10. My theory is that it was meant to appear in BoBF and it was a similar case to the First Order Scout Walker, but since it appeared in Bad Batch they just repurposed it with Bad Batch figures. It's such a strange choice, but honestly it's probably the set I'm the most excited for of the wave. I just find it's existence very interesting
  11. yeah it and the $20 snowtrooper battle pack feel like the exceptions to everything else being decently priced. Just compare the Andor set to the Inquisitor ship or BD-1, it looks like you get double the value with either of them for only $30 more compared to the Andor set

    Wishlist: Future Star Wars Sets and Minifigures

    Yeah I could see it being a little more too. I think you could probably pull 7163 size off at like $120-$140-ish realistically. Point is, I really don't think the Gunship needs to be a big 2008/2013 sized $160 flagship and it can work well being downscaled

    Wishlist: Future Star Wars Sets and Minifigures

    Considering that the previous ones are a bit oversized and the overall size profile of the new Inquisitor ship, I think a Republic Gunship could actually work really well around the $100 price point. Make it smaller like some of the MOCs, get rid of the speeder bike stuff from the last couple ones and focus on it holding as much troops as possible. Pair it with a clone battle pack and they'll fly off the shelves.
  14. That Inquisitor ship is great. Build looks really clean and it looks really big compared to the other $100 sets we've been getting recently. Big fan of the design and the figures it comes with, angles look very good, lots of interior space. Definitely a day 1 buy for me Obi Wan Starfighter is a bit better than I expected, but ultimately I'm probably gonna get it just for the Kaminoan. Kinda wish the front of it was a bit more narrow honestly. The back of it seems shaped better than the 2017 one and I'm definitely a big fan of that. Can't wait to see the rest of them. Justifier has me interested and I'm hoping the AT-TE is better than I'm expecting. I'm not a big fan of the 2013 version and so far it's just sounding like the same thing but for $140 and better figures. Official pictures of phase II Cody will be nice to see too. Hoping they get leaked in the catalogue
  15. Honestly, as much as I want him, i wouldn’t even be mad if that happened. At that point it’s just funny, plus hey, updated 212th troppers aint bad to have either
  16. They were on the promobricks instagram story a couple days ago. Nothing completely concrete but definitely hinting at it
  17. But there’s still a demand for Cody and there’s also promobricks hinting at an Utapau AT-TE over a Geonosis one despite AotC’s 20th anniversary. There’s definitely speculation to be had over it and I think the gunship figure selection drama definitely has something to do with it if true. I also disagree with the idea that Cody isn’t actually in demand too, just because YOU don’t want phase 2 Cody doesn’t mean only MandR wants him. Probably not gonna talk further about the gunship anymore though, we’ve started to get a bit off topic with it
  18. You’re actually right about that, they never did officially claim they were the fan vote figures, I’d even say the fact it was never mentioned seems to imply they weren’t the fan vote figures too. That being said, I never meant for this to be a gunship figure rant as much as it was meant to be speculation about the AT-TE potentially being Utapau based instead of Geonosis based
  19. We never did get the answer, and I didn’t say he straight up won, but judging by the community’s requests and the reaction to the figure selection, there’s a very obvious demand for him. I also HIGHLY doubt the winners just so happened to be a figure already in production and another figure that just so happens to ALSO be in production, but with slight differences. There’s just NO way
  20. except for the fact that it was LITERALLY the fan vote, and exactly what fans asked for. How is that a slap in the face? If anything, what we actually ended up getting was more along the lines of a slap in the face. As for jedi bob, he would’ve made less sense. He’s non canon. I don’t think Lego wanted to put a non canon figure in a UCS set, simple as that
  21. Yeah if it really is a ROTS set, it more than likely will have Cody in it. That also being said, I firmly believe the gunship’s figure selection was 100% due to it only having a year of design/production, so they probably actually knew about the demand from the vote, but couldn’t get a new helmet mold out on time for the gunship that or it just has 212th troopers with no cody in it
  22. Anyone see the blurry landspeeder pic on instagram? Looks pretty decent if real
  23. Just backs up all the theories of Lego expecting a Nebulon win. If phase II Cody actually ends up in the AT-TE, it also backs my theory of the Gunship's bad figure selection being a product of a short development period. wouldn't be shocked if this ends up being the $530 set either, considering the thing seems to be pretty much complete
  24. Vaughn is definitely the first one that comes to mind. If they were to do, say, a clone wars based Gunship in the future, they're DEFINITELY throwing Vaughn into that. Thorn or a P2 Fox I could easily see them doing if they decide to make a set with the Coruscant guard in it. I doubt we'll ever see Doom, but if they ever wanted to bring back May the 4th minifigs, Doom would be perfect. Lego would also totally just make unnamed clone commanders with a regular white helmet and a black visor lets be real lol
  25. Yeah I don't think Lego is rushing to make new molds for them. If the cody leak is real, I'm gonna assume his helmet's a new mold in a similar fashion to the gar saxon mando helmet we got last year, and if we get any obscure named clones later, it's gonna be ones that use that mold like thorn or something over a completely new one for someone like bacara
