    LOTR & The Hobbit 2013 Set Discussion

    Yes, I did see the Watto and the other sets, they're at the front of the photograph. I do agree with you on that we will not see many sets in this picture, particularly the ones that you suggested. It's already been confirmed that we are not seeing that Yavin set at the bottom. If you have played the game would would of noticed in the bonus level that several of the buildings were taken directly from sets. Weathertop, Rivendell, Helms Deep, The Black Gate etc. I could go one. What I'm saying that because I saw in the game and now again in the lego office photo. There could be a possbility that it could become a set.I'm just speculating, not confirming. I have 2 sources which correlate and backup my point. Neither definitely confirm that we are getting a particular set, but seeing it in both the office picture and the game, we could see the Lorien set. People just really want that set. If they see hope they'll cling to it hahahah

    LOTR & The Hobbit 2013 Set Discussion

    Looking at the pictures of the offices at LEGO. I think that most of the Lord of the Rings sets that are featured on the back wall will become sets. You can already see Helms Deep and what looks like Shelob. You can also see the set Rivendell. There is also a set in the first column, third grid down that looks like the one featured in the bonus level in Lego Lord of the Rings. Knowing that some of the buildings in the Lego Lord of the Rings Video Game bonus level are actually real sets there is a slight possibility that those sets that are featured on that back wall are going to be real sets. I see a Balrog (first column, 4 grids down), the Lorien set featured in the game, Orthanc. I can't make out the other sets but it looks as if we are getting another Isengard/Orc forge.

    LOTR & The Hobbit 2013 Set Discussion

    I think that the descriptions have been confused. There was talk about a year ago describing that there was going to be an LEGO Flying Dutchman (seperate from the LEGO Spongebob Squarepants set). There were no preliminary pictures but there was a couple of users on the forums who had connections with the workers of the LEGO Stores and they confirmed that there was going to the a LEGO Flying Dutchman that was over 2000 pieces. It was soon cancelled and nothing more has been heard of it. This is all from memory so it may be hazy. I seriously doubt that there will be a corsair ship with 10-12 mini-figures. The ships had minimal screen time and would not be a good set for the line's second wave. Also, to debunk rumors of a mixed Hobbit and Lord of the Rings wave, LEGO has stated in the past that these lines are separate

    Disney buys out Lucasfilm

    I think that Disney would do a great job of it. Star Wars was getting stale, near to the point of cringe worthy after Episode 1. The storyline was horrible; there were no characters that the audience could relate to etc. etc. What Lucas did create in the prequel trilogy that was amazing was an expansion of the Star Wars universe. This expansion has led to many spin offs and side stories which is evident due to the amount of comics, books, games etc. which are not only limited to the prequel trilogy. Disney could be creating one of these spin offs. It would introduce new characters, new places, and new vehicles. A goldmine for merchandising rights. This is where I think Disney saw the potential in the ownership of Lucasfilm. I highly doubt that Disney would start where Episode 6 left off or visualise some of the Expanded Universe material considering that the actors are too old for their roles .If you argue that these actors can be replaced, I don't think it would be appropriate to bring other actors in to play those role (Zack Effron as Luke Skywalker) as that story has been told and it would be disrespectful to the other actors as well cause a rampaging fire of anger from the Original trilogy fans. The films produced by Disney would have to be completely separate from the Fall of Anakin/Rise of Luke storyline. Taking this into account I think that the new characters will be alike of the Luke, Leia and Han trio but not the same. The new films will somewhat be influenced by the fall of the Republic and Rise of the Empire events because these are major events in the films and in the context of the Star Wars Universe itself. Comparing this to the Marvel Universe, The events which transpired in the films have started a timeline of its own. Taking some aspects from the comics and using them for inspiration material. But the point here is that the comic and films are almost completely separate from each other. All that they have in common is that they are in the same universe (characters, subplots etc.) While I think that Disney will go along a path similar to Marvel, they will still keep to the timeline set out by George Lucas in his previous films but the use different characters and different events that ultimately will be effected by the greater events that occurred in the George Lucas era films, will be of more use to Disney than simply picking up where a story left off.
