    LEGO Star Wars 2019 Set Discussion - READ FIRST POST!!!

    It will make our wallets as empty as they were back in May 1999. I so hope you are right about the vintage packaging. They are truly works of art. Haven't heard this rumor. Does the extra yellow figure hold value for the collector? Maybe. It just seems like it might be confusing to the average consumer. Wouldn't this be extra puzzling to a 5 year old kid who plays with this - especially if there are 2 colors of Anakin. Not having a go at your post, mate just - it seems like an odd marketing strategy.

    Hmm.. wonder if there is a chance that K might be Kazuda Xiono of Star Wars Resistance.

    Did Cloud City underwhelm creators?

    There was a desire I had to start with expanding the floor area so that all quadrants had a floor - someone in the 2018 discussions/rumors page had sketches of this made up. But now that 75222 is together and in front of me, I really think it's fine just the way it is. I'm happy to have Cloud City "done" finally, at long last, so I can move on to other projects. It's a huge step up from 10123, the Bespin Strip Mall!

    https://shop.lego.com/en-US/Darth-Vader-s-Castle-75251 Ships 1st December, so it's probably classified as a 2018 release.

    Quite a few new #legoleaks images are showing up on Instagram from a few hours ago - but no Star Wars at all sadly.

    Sounds like the Resistance Hasbro figures come out in the spring. Maybe we'll see (or hear rumors of) Lego Resistance kits by then? https://www.cnet.com/g00/news/star-wars-resistance-action-figures-from-hasbro-are-coming-this-spring/ I also find it odd. When Rebels premiered in Oct 2014, we had The Ghost and other kits sitting on shelves all summer. Maybe Disney/TLG is telling us to manage our expectations.

    Cheaper than $USD 25? That Emperor is worth it, too. https://shop.lego.com/en-US/Darth-Vader-Transformation-75183 Really curious now about the Canto Bight Vehicle Escape. The only vehicle they escape on is ... The Libertine. Are we really getting that in a $30 set? Maybe it is one of the luxury limo speeders on Canto bight... gets trashed by Finn and Rose riding faltheirs... in which case, it's an Animal Escape, not a Vehicle Escape. Would it be the Canto Bight police speeder? Again, they don't 'escape' on those wiry speeders (rather from them) so I can't imagine what this kit would be. Thoughts on this one?

    Future Star Wars Sets

    Tomorrow (Oct 7th) is the premiere of a new animated series, 22-episode season one of Star Wars Resistance, for which we have zero Lego leaked entirely. Unlike a three-part VR experience, this is going to be hours and hours of content for the next few years - and not a single leak for 2018 so I think it is remarkable because this year is drawing to a close and 2018 likely won't provide any more SW kits. In October 2014, Rebels premiered with heaps of The Ghost already sitting mostly unnoticed on shelves. Maybe Lego learned their lesson! There haven't even been rumors of sets from this series that I can find... 2018 or 2019. Does anyone know about this show?? Lol Disney. I guess we'll be talking more about the potential for Lego kits after it premieres.
  9. I cheered out loud when I saw the pics of 75251! Just what I was hoping for. Proof that TLG loves us. Lego is getting so much better at location sets. Vader's castle is almost perfect for my shelf - something great to display but with some play features on the other side. Like the great OT sets: Jabba's Palace, Ewok Villlage, etc. I will scrap that MID scale Vader's TIE and MOC that area into a meeting space for Krennic. Agreed that the blue trooper should be Vanee... but this doesn't appear to be a Rogue One set. I think this set favors the new VR experience. We don't see a Vader meditation chamber scene in R1.
  10. So... business as usual around here, then? Vader's Mustafar castle: dream scenario, it's like 10237-1 : Lego The Tower of Orthanc. Striking and huge. Great news would be a piece count/price threshold similar to 79007 Lord of the Rings Battle at the Black Gate, but it's leaked to be $60 it would likely be half that piece count... disappointment will abound if it basically ends up exactly like 75183 Vader's Transformation - interior scene only with a bacta tank and some blue faced troopers. Great leak and thanks for sharing. If we don't get VaneƩ (Vader's butler as seen in Rogue One) in this set, we never will. Anyone else find Vader's disembodied body strange with black bits where missing limbs would be? I plan on removing them, excepting some play feature that requires a full minifig to function - maybe lifting Vader in/out the bacta tank? Looks like it's available today. https://shop.lego.com/en-CA/Porg-75230 Anyone non-VIP'ers pulling the trigger on Cloud City today?

    Post your general LEGO Star Wars questions here

    Thank you for letting me know, my PO box was still empty last week of Lego catalogs so I ordered one. Lego's been known to skip catalogs on me before so I feel my paranoia is justified. :) For those of you that didn't know about that service and appreciates having a physical catalog: https://shop.lego.com/en-CA/CATALOGS
  12. If done like in the recent past, first a 2019 Set Discussion forum would be on made and on standby and when the first image(s) from 2019 sets would leak, the forum would go live to all members for discussion.
  13. IGN has some great new angles to see in this review video. It looks a lot more like Cloud City when you see in on a flat angle than the views we've seen so far from the official photos.

    Post your general LEGO Star Wars questions here

    Anyone not getting catalogs anymore? I'm on the East Coast of Canada and the last Lego Shop at Home catalog I got was January with the Diner on the front. Summer 2018 catalog didn't come so I requested a catalog in late June via the website. 2 weeks later, the January 2018 one came again, with the Diner on the front. So my question is: Has anyone in Canada gotten a summer catalog? I think it has the Han Solo falcon on the front - and maybe this was sent to only Americans (or some areas of Canada?)

    Trench Run MOC to Display Minifig Scale Ships

    Really nice, I especially like the techniques used to create your thermal exhaust port.
