  1. You're not wrong, but to be fair most SW sets these days don't live up to those standards. $160 playsets have had 5-6 minifigs for the past 5+ years. The Justifier basically had 4. The 2006 Star Destroyer had 8 (not counting the mouse droid), and the 2024 set has 7. I wouldn't look at that as a huge downgrade, especially considering the new figures are notably more detailed than the classic ones. Would it be nice if the new ISD was bigger? Yes. But I'd also say this one is more detailed and polished off than the 2006 model, so there's always some give and take.
  2. To be fair, this one is barely any smaller than the 2014 model, and actually costs slightly less when adjusted for inflation. Plus we have 7 figures here, literally an increase from 2014's 6. Sure there are subjective things one could argue, but the value here isn't really worse than the previous set.
  3. ISD looks pretty good. Disappointing that the rumors of 10-12 minifigures are untrue, but 7 total figures is still more than we've been getting for most $160 sets (Yavin not withstanding), so I'll take it.

    Agreed, it's almost a given we'll get a city-like version of the raven within the next year. I'm also be curious to see if they'll reuse the red panda mould for a raccoon?

    I agree. Quickly you build up a whole fleet of vehicles to explore a tiny patch of terrain with a handful of animals. I would love to see more focus on the locations and the biodiversity, even though I agree the vehicle builds look good.

  7. I think a Star Destroyer makes a lot more sense, and it's nice to see a big playset with a lot of figures that (hopefully) isn't just a super-sized juniors set as Yavin IV was.
  8. Yes I think you're right! Wonder if it has a printed tile on the back?
  9. I agree. 4 good looking minifigures, with two new moulded helmets, and the bunker build looks like an okay size with hopefully a couple of good play features. Maybe it should be $35, but in today's market it's hard to expect much cheaper.
  10. Is that backpack on the Imperial Commandos and Gideon a new piece?

    I love the dog with the printed holiday sweater! Great use of that part.
  12. Absolutely. At this point he is not just a public figure, he's running a very profitable business based on his social media presence and sales affiliations. It's perfectly fair to criticize his opinions on another company's products when he himself runs a company and sells products. That doesn't mean people should be using hate speech or harassment, but if they want to say he's hypocritical for complaining endlessly about clone troopers while selling thousands of them on his website for profit, that's fair game.

    Interesting find: the new Milky Way art set seems to make use of an unprinted hermit crab piece! Same colour as far as I can tell.
